Chill out. It's just the US bombing again.

"Sometimes, she would spend several hours a day reading and writing messages, neglecting her social relationships and, sometimes, even meals and regular sleeping hours. She finally felt increasingly desperate because she could not fulfill all of the tasks, became increasingly afraid of what would happen to her if she did not, and finally, developed intense suicidal thoughts."
A standard day of the sysadmin-developer.
Really, what's so special?

Yeah yeah yeah.
> It might be modelling Perceptrons, which are actually useful for engineering.
They are not very interesting because they are just classifiers handily described in a single equation. This is not that.
Such engineering. Much social. Wow.
Yes .... Even if it turned out later that the sandbox was leaking all over the place. Imagine what would have happened if Microsoft had managed to push its own "optimized" version.
Next sandbox: run the whole browser in its own VM.
"Kieron Sharp, director general of the Federation Against Copyright Theft, which also took place in the raids, added:"
What happens if Kieron Sharp, director general of the Federation Against Copyright Theft, is wounded in the raid as instead of a 20 year old nerd a bunch of coloured persons enraged by the BIP are encountered (hypothetically)?
The Police aren't there to protect the tax payer
You don't quite understand that the police is there to make sure the tax payer pays.
But don't worry, Chomsky is also a bit confused in his anarcho-syndicalist ways as he pines for factories run by democratically-run worker commitees. History shows where that kind of operation ends.
He looks like he's from Nigeria, rather.
Frankly, this world could do with more death threats.

I hope not literally otherwise some salesman was having a good laugh.
Copyright still at mickey-mouse levels instead of 10 years after publication?
Yeah fuck that.
The British children of today – who have rarely heard the chirping of a dial-up connection – have matched middle-aged folks' tech ability by the age of six, new Ofcom research has claimed.
This research brought to you by overpaid trick cyclists just out of "social science" studies.
"Hold Security is already capitalizing on the panic"
The biggest problem, as Forbes's Kashmir Hill and The Wall Street Journal's Danny Yadron have noted, is that Hold Security is already capitalizing on the panic, charging a $120-per-year subscription to anyone who wants to check if their name and password are on the list. Hold says it's just trying to recoup expenses, but there's something unseemly about stoking fears of cybercrime and then asking concerned citizens to pay up. It also gives Hold a clear incentive to lie to reporters about how large and significant the finding is.
Yup, a roach motel is easy to maintain.
Will Redmond be able to resist?
Should this not be the headline?

I saw that trick in a movie with CIndy Crawford.
The digital currency will be backed by the assets of the Central Bank of Ecuador.
Of which there are none. This is just code for "we will issue some more when we need it", thus as any "Central Bank backed currency" it can be had in heaps as large as you want, inflated away, used to pay off the state's debt for peanuts etc.

But they are not undirected. You just need to be good.
> The sooner we get real people onto Mars
Expecting this to happen anytime soon or result in more than "meh" from the based generation. Unless someone suicides while on tour or gets horribly mangled by radiation/incontinent airlocks/lithobraking.
> the sooner we start to really learn things about the planet.
Implying those robots are unsuitable to "learn things about the planet". At least they can stay longer than 48 hours.

It's wheels dey are for da rollin' and one of this days dey gonna roll right outta da crater!
...and judging from what I have seen so far, a lot of code teams containing interns in senior positions would become liabilities overnight.
I'm all for it.
Dan Geer always has food for thought.

ITT: One voter who thinks Bush Junior had a plan.
Come on, he even need to be told there was a connection between Neocons and Israel. Never reading a US broadsheet, how shrub can you get?
I don't see where the problem is.
If you built new software from the old, it becomes new software. If you import the old warts, you become responsible for maintaining and fixing them.
Unless you open source your new product (hopefully not under a Microsoft "open" *cough* license).
Thats would akin to saying Bush Junior had a plan.
So, anyone remember the good old times when the now-lamented Mr. Saddam was rumored to buy up PS/2 en masse to create reality-bending weapons of mass destruction?
I want to go back.
Putin is getting it in both. American-style bi-partisanship?
Then Cameroon comes out like an idiot from hell and is telling tall tales about WWI being about "The Freedoms" but I digress.
If lawyers start circling, you *may* have hit it big. It may also be that your destiny was to serve as a warning to others.
Also, the correct wording would be "We are sorry, this stream is not available in your location", right?
The distinction may seem obvious. The precaution of looking for all the consequences of a given policy to everyone may seem elementary. Doesn't everybody know, in his personal life, that there are all sorts of indulgences delightful at the moment but disastrous in the end? Doesn't every little boy know that if he eats enough candy he will get sick? Doesn't the fellow who gets drunk know that he will wake up next morning with a ghastly stomach and a horrible head? Doesn't the dipsomaniac know that he is ruining his liver and shortening his life? Doesn't the Don Juan know that he is letting himself in for every sort of risk, from blackmail to disease? Finally, to bring it to the economic though still personal realm, do not the idler and the spendthrift know, even in the midst of their glorious fling, that they are heading for a future of debt and poverty?
Yet when we enter the field of public economics, these elementary truths are ignored. There are men regarded today as brilliant economists, who deprecate saving and recommend squandering on a national scale as the way of economic salvation; and when anyone points to what the consequences of these policies will be in the long run, they reply flippantly, as might the prodigal son of a warning father: “In the long run we are all dead.” And such shallow wisecracks pass as devastating epigrams and the ripest wisdom.
But the tragedy is that, on the contrary, we are already suffering the long-run consequences of the policies of the remote or recent past. Today is already the tomorrow which the bad economist yesterday urged us to ignore. The long-run consequences of some economic policies may become evident in a few months. Others may not become evident for several years. Still others may not become evident for decades. But in every case those long-run consequences are contained in the policy as surely as the hen was in the egg, the flower in the seed.
From this aspect, therefore, the whole of economics can be reduced to a single lesson, and that lesson can be reduced to a single sentence. The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups.
Is Andrew now consulting in the deep south?
Seriously, this just means Israelis are currently commandeering the sprinkler system of the general in charge from their secret Jewish location.
Hmm, a thumbs-down by someone who presumably does not believe in encryption. How weird.
there's a number of companies out there who do in-house decapsulation of SSL traffic. Certificates are signed by their in house CA
That's not sufficent. The above means that https must be prohibited on the LAN up to the firewall. Or the browser has to friendly-wise provide the session key to the firewall.
So far, yes.
Yeah, but here they are clearly running as root.

I have several shock images of ISIS re-enacting the final scenes of "Life of Brian", with added decomposition and beheadings, judging by the smudgy pixels.
Am I bad?
High end Konica Minolta, Sharp, Dell, Canon and HP enterprise multi function printers spewed usernames, email addresses and passwords from address books, even after some vendors released fixes.
Presumably the Brother printers just straight-up cough-and-died?
The way things are going, we will be using nukes way before AI is even off the drawing board.
The same way the german Nachrichtendienst now uses typewrites to evade the NSA?
I would post a reaction image of Bob the Angry Flower looking very desultory, but I can't.
What do make of the CMB reference frame then?
ITT: People who are not into reference frames and special relativity. And probably still in high school.
Furthermore... actually written by Greg Egan:
However, I really was gobsmacked by the level of scientific illiteracy in the article “Fly by Light” in the 9 September 2006 issue, concerning the supposed “electromagnetic drive” of Roger Shawyer. If Shawyer’s claims have been accurately reported, they violate conservation of momentum. This is not a contested matter; in its modern, relativistic form it is accepted by every educated physicist on the planet. The writer of this article, Justin Mullins, seems aware that conservation of momentum is violated, but then churns out a lot of meaningless double-talk about “reference frames” which he seems to think demonstrates that relativity somehow comes to the rescue ... Mullins quotes one engineer who says Shawyer’s claims are “a load of bloody rubbish”, but that’s really not good enough, when the rest of the article is full of apparent endorsements from various authorities. If Mullins had tried, I’m sure he could have found someone to explain to him exactly why, however clever Shawyer’s design might be, the only possible source of net thrust for this device would be the release of the microwaves in a unidirectional beam, and that the ceiling on the thrust imposed by relativity is P/c (where P is power), or 3.33 microNewtons per kilowatt. As the article stands, it leaves readers with the impression that while one engineer has raised some unspecified quibbles, it’s quite likely that Shawyer is correct.
So, super-extraordinary claims with no extraordinary evidence. This happens continually of course, no need to get into high dudgeon etc., keep you well-annoted classical physics book on the shelves, do not throw them out etc.
Since when is NASA the go-to for crank science? They can't even get a fat plane into orbit.
