Do not be of grammar nazi, comrade!
TCP/IP is not appropriate for 21st century needs
Yeah well maybe you should go back to the course on "Infosec 101" because if you think TCP/IP is the problem, I have a bridge in lower Manhattan, very cheap...
"He overdosed on alcohol? Clearly the fault of the glass bottles!"
Data communication must be encrypted at the SOURCE, by DEFAULT, across the world. Period. Anything else is simply a continuous data theft, waiting to happen.
You may want to explain how encrypting data communications will prohibit data being exfiltrated in the first place. Your voodoo is weak...
Ok, start with The Orange Book and work your way forward, slowly...
Bind still exists? That's so "TLD requested by several applicants that is pending at ICANN" it's sad.
I hate to break it to you but unless you pass through a forwarding service there better be. Unless you DON'T want to do business. Of course, for a generic shock site that's probably not the goal...
It must be banned not because of socialism but because Uncle Sam is already missing 120 trillion dollar to pay for THE OTHER social services.
NSA presently is being savaged
The smallest fiddle in the world is heard playing.
Alos, 5 minutes until the suggestion emerges that the breach was actually due to the 5-minute interruption in metadata collection between the sunsetting of the P.A.T.R.I.O.T. act and the inception of the F.R.E.E.D.O.M. act.
The important part however is that without Wikileaks publishing this treaty no one outside government teams and large corporates would have any idea what was law until it was passed: something that rankles, especially in the era of the internet.
There must be 10⁴ copies of this shit floating around on the devoces (mobile or otherwise) less-than-practically.skilled-in-IT political operators. How come nobody has dropped core onto the sidewalk yet?
You can be sure that escrow will continue to be acceptable practice. Assholes refusing to conform will just suddenly have no customers. No code in the notary's safe? No deal!
Indeed, in my book, we are now in the era where inspectable open source code (and not only "read after my death" escrow) is becoming necessary in quite a few business dealings.
BSides offers a genuine sense of community and upbeat, unfussy vibe
What the fuck am I doing on my (expletives hurtful to the GLBT community) job ;_;
Indeed! Entire WAREHOUSES of ghostly Microsoft IP have DISAPPEARED without a trace.
In an emergency those LAND LINES could be OVERLOADED...or worse, CUT.
That EMERGENCY would then turn out to be a SKOOL SHOOTING, in which case you would be in a DIRE PICKLE as all the blue-clad people meant to "guard the campus" (i.e. harass and taser students for incontinent speech freedomization) would have left due to ELF AND SAFETY regualtions, waiting for the SWAT team to arrive. Which would then trundle in about 4h later.
For example, it seeks to extend American copyright laws to participating nations, possibly even going so far as to make ISPs responsible for any copyright infringement by their users, and impose criminal charges on downloaders.
National laws are not passed via secret treaties, bilateral or otherwise. They need to be voted on by parliament. These things are null and void. Next there will be secret ententes promising military assistance in case bullshit happens during dickwaving with the neighbours. Oh wait...
We just don't know.
Cue ominous music: "Probably not a problem"
"Collisions releasing greater energy occur millions of times a day in the earth's atmosphere and nothing terrible happens."
More on this: The Particle That Broke a Cosmic Speed Limit: Physicists are beginning to unravel the mysteries of ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays, particles accelerated by the most powerful forces in the universe.
One can apparently have fun with Smartphones used as cosmic ray detectors: crayfis.io
The Snowdens of yesteryear warned us about this!
MUH LOSS OF CONTROL OVER MUH IP!
This is the IT equivalent of a fart joke.
Yum update food!
It's finger-licking good?
It's like chemo has been successfully applied.
Next: disallow IPv4. Only IPv6 allowed here, so soorrreeee...
You mean the bizarrotardo button that is "powered by Telefonica" (who?) that invites you to "Start a conversation" or WebRTC?
I joked with Microsoft that the release would include manga wallpaper. After all, that reflects the Insiders' tastes pretty well.
I hate to say it, but ALL of the tech is determined by the "Insiders". The fact that a "Start Button" has become lore and part of the expectation does not mean it comes from "Outsiders" or is a good idea.
Yup. It's not like there are any unsolved mysteries of computation locked up in there. Into the trash it goes!
Why doesn't the BND add selectors for Trojans and send those to the NSA, who will analyze them and then warn of an intrusion
In which part of the multiverse would this actually work? How can you select for Trojans, why would the NSA analyze them and why would it warn anyone of anything?
So, unless you use WSUS your are assumed to be in a crappy consumer setting feeding on consumer shit (like, I suppose, Windows) and addies can be pushed into your face?
Great marketing logic.
...for a free WIndows upgrade NAOW.
Who had that brilliant idea? Difficult-to-distinguish from badware and inappropriate in a business setting.
Probably a hit by Assad. Bomb Syria now!
Because suggesting that the aircraft was at fault might impact the manufacturer's profitablilty which would put the defence of the realm (and jobs in a marginal constituency) at risk.
I hate to bring this message but some Yuropean countries have the hots for their "friend's" F-35, so your "risk" is already in the intestinal zone.
Evidence, transparency, proper legal procedure.
You know, nowadays you can actually *copy* black box contents while maintaining evidence, transparency and proper legal procedure and getting the engineers to work.
Not really and the Osprey has some problems due to physics which are only software-fixable in games.
software properly installed would have been built in on boot
Checksums don't work for every problem. Wrong units (pound vs. kg) and configuration with off-by-one errors in the engine serial numbers come to mind.
like pyramids and huge chatedrals lets not forget that most of it was built by "slave" labor.
LOLNO. And there is no need for "scare" quotes either.
Until it drops its cloak and takes off for Vega, all the sides are equally well potemkin'ed.
If it has a chotic orbit, is there any explanation for why it hasn't drifted off into interplanetary space or dropped onto Saturn expect the evident postselection explanations ("it just managed to stay in the neighborhood with no reason, otherwise we would not be talking about it"
The Entrepreneurial State
I opened it then closed it.
It's total, utter crap and totally at odds with anything real and what I encounter around me. Or with common sense. The author must be pissing from high up the ivory tower.
Indeed, as Keynes noted, it is the publicly funded organisations of the state that have the animal spirits.
Keynes was also one of those people that manage to actually NEVER be right about anything. But he managed to lather his writings into so much high-falutin bullshit that politicians and academics alike could reasonably claim that reasonable policy was being described, and thus could follow their instincts to generate free money. Which brings us to today's neverending economic meltdown.
It's like "Jackass", only with robots!
Also, in the video:
"Researchers have developed new algrothims to autonomously jump over obstacles"
Looks like MotR (Machines on the Rise) have already managed to put LSD into the water cooler in a breakout bid, then?
"These are the wrong trousers, Grabit!"
> small and medium business
I thought Bayonetta was all legs, penetrating sights and something like Aikido with guns?
I vaguely remember the original Nintendo stuff release dates (back in the early 90s) were kept totally secret because had they been known, Yakuza thugs would have robbed a few trucks bringing the cartridges to the retailers. Nothing has changed.
"Surging Dollar Value"
Nice euphemism for "EURO reaching the shitter faster".
No. There seems to be a bizarro trend to produce devices that are high-tech and extremely
gaia-rapingcapital intensive but then avoid going the last mile so that an awkward contraption can be manually assembled with bits of 100% natural products by low-skilled but non-alienated workers.
I don't know why either, but there you are.
Happens all day, every day in the carpeted halls of management.
(robocontroller): "This pass is not acceptable, dear [visitor]. Failure to comply with Google House rules will mean you get fully doxed and your search history goes to pastebin. Please comply with the Google House rules within 10 seconds. Nine... eight... "

"seven ... six ..."
(google engineer) "Err.... I think we might have a problem here...."
I would hate to see what the offspring of psychotic bureaucrats and Google efficiency, coupled to the FEMA trailers, would look like.
