How about "The Road Ahead"?
It's pretty ok actually but the Microsoft-specific text formatting which interworks with nothing and uncopyable text in the most impossible places (like, IN THE ADDRESSBOOK, HMMMNNNNN!!?) really riles me up a bit.
2) The paranoia of The X Files for example was not generated from thin air; it was an expression of the general feeling that there were things going on in deep state that were not kosher at all. The bizarre wheelings and dealings and civil liberty infringements of the Clinton years were like a rash slowly breaking out.
3) I don't know whether ECHELON was involved into 9/11 but there definitely was failure of TLAs to "connect the dots" apparently more due to careerism and internal interference running than anything else. But there was also bizarre distraction noise generated by Israeli services just prior to 9/11, and we would like to read the 28 pages indeed.
4) The "regime change in Syria" omnishambles is typical for modern governmental action. Plus currently the US is playing Al Qaeda's airforce in Yemen (for the Saudi friends) while NATO-alley Turkey is supporting ISIS to "abrade" the Kurds. It will get worse. Don't get me started on the Ukraine direct-to-video bullshit.
Nuke icon because that's we are moving towards.
Disappointed Conspiracy Theorist
You can go to The Intercept, there are links at the article end. For what it's worth.
You can now go back to watching NAVY CSI arsehattery.
The history of Yakima in an NSA historiographical newsletter? Come on NSA; just publish a book already.
Power is power. That's good enough.
I find powerful operators also grabbing the millions as a side-dish just disgusting.
This is a Major Major Major Major moment!
Any PHB worth his salt, of course.
Bend over to find out!
Range's ousting functions to calm the grumbling masses who want to see "justice served" for the attack on freedom of press but fail to realize the big picture which happens to be much more ugly.
Frankyl I still don't see what you are alluding to. A conspiracy that failed and therefore is hiding a BIGGER consipracy?
But that's the whole point of separation of powers: no one branch of government can go it alone, and if one does get out of line it's the responsibility of one of the others to stop it
But ... isn't the prosecutor is part of the executive branch (that's what he is: the attack dog of the executive). So if the minister reins him in isn't this entirely appropriate? Otherwise how could the justice minister fire the dude?
It sounds to me that this "separation of power" talk is so much waahambulance stupidity.
"Stop this bullshit and go home"
"No I won't"
Adam Smith said (to compress) all capitalism inexorably leads to monopoly.
What the fuck am I reading?
You feel ambivalent about this outcome?
Kanonen auf Spatzen.
Prosecutor should have shown some good judgment instead of going full out.
Why is there a girl in that picture next to proto-Zuckerberg?
Useful in scenarios where destroyed hardware is survivable or get two of those?
And would i appear as a "persistent RAM disk" until the system call appears that says "make this block persistent"?
"The divorce lawyer will be in touch!"
When AIs collide.
Later Ollie was embedded correspondent for operation Gulf War II. True story!
Oliver North: amoral unkillable.
Well, as interest is verboten, medieval-style (money has no price in Islam by decree, while the West tries to kill the price by printing money) there may not be much to do. One would have to expand into camel management and "interest-replacing-services".
D. Information Paper on Qatar Key Issues
E. Information Paper on Saudi Arabia Key Issues
F. Information Paper on United Arab Emirates Key Issues
G. Information Paper on Bahrain Key Issues
The underbelly of the ISIS-finance hub? I would really like to see these...
Generally these affairs are under permanent inspection by "independent auditors". Not so here?
Come back, Tito!
"Radar imaging" of the Dark Ambient Peanut "understood to be around 1.2 miles (2 kilometres) long"
This is pretty good radar imaging ... interferometry? How does it work?
Because people are NO LIKING X therefore X WILL BECOME SUCCESFULL and NYA NYA NYA
I think this kind of statement only applies in /pol/itical discussions...
Stop smoking crack or you will see FEMA trailers rolling to all-american GAS CHAMBERS in no time. I grant you that there is dangerous talk of randomly starting a war with Iran or concentrating mooslims in merica into camps.
Also learn what a Quantum Computer actually is. Start with "Quantum Computing Since Democritus".
No, it's still cool.
I think we here have us one of the "creative persons" responsible for the "designer websites" and "well-written code" inflicted on us honest citizens.
Might be a witch, too.
I do think this should be spanish-inquisitioned ....
Evidence says you are making shit up.
You will stuff your smug smile up your arsehole once I go all device management on you, sunshine!
You will rue the day that your employer lost business because some "user" was prevented from doing her job by your deliberate action. The computers are there for the business, not your personal gratification.
Or a babyfaced MS grassrooter who has never had to solve problems created by "productivity tools".
They are not calling for ISIS-style Jihad, what more do you WANT?
This is boilerplate lawyerse in case they WANT to do something later or something HAPPENS or someone objects to his DATA travelling out into the Internets and get no-win-no-fee attorneys on the case.
How far are they really going RIGHT NOW?
THE BROWSER WARS OF 1999! FEAR!!!
Seriously, is this still a thing? It's 2015!
If you wanted to have Firefox in the first place, you have enough sophistication and Google-fu to switch back to it, should you want to.
This "the user is too brain-crippled to be able to choose (but we want him to have CHOICE anyway!)" is just so fecking retarded.
Let them have their smalltime ways, point and laugh at them but stop writing emotional "open letters"..
1) Is it a robot? It rather looks like a device able to move 4 pieces of preformed wire ... in the same class as a stapler, which is not a robot.
2) Why do today's videos always have that infuriating Hollywood-slice-of-life-comedy-style background music? One always expects being forced to watch a fat guy falling downstairs or a baby in a "cute" situation in the next second.
"Here lies patient tended by machine X. He died of port 80"
What, not brainwashed?
Nein, Nein, Nein, Nein! Absolutely not.
Nobody else has these problems, all your problems are imaginary.
HELLO, MICROSOFT HELPDESK. HOW CAN I MAKE YOU SUICIDAL TODAY?
What can i say i love windows 10 and everything about it.
The only thing that comes to mind are crazed youngsters of various ethnicities and smartly dressed in suspiciously well-chosen hipster clothing dancing on-premise in a newly opened Microsoft Store.
> I'll also be glad when the creative (copycat?) types jump on another bandwagon.
> Web design seems to be fashion over function these days.
This. And El Reg has gone down the way of crap design too (back in February, was it?)
Then again, one has to provide jobs to the army of people who think "web design and uglyfication" is actually a real job that is supposed to be remunerated.
Didn't the BND just recently "accidentally" shredder a whole shelf of documents about active neo-nazi groups? There was deep regrets and sundry "explanations" on how this could have happened but not much followup ...
Woah. Just putting "Landesverrat" in print in Germany is bound to go down like a lead balloon with whirling swastikas.
they hold up fine
Keep deluding yourself. The Krugmanian death pill has been administered: Japan’s Keynesian Demise: A Cautionary Tale For Our Times
As for Friedman being the opposite of "Lord" Keynes: FUCK NO. Monetarism, Keynesianism - it's all the same to me.
What's killing them for the future even more than the debt is negative growth in population - This is like saying "What's killing me more than the daily crack dose is my permanent lack of money". Err... yes??
Adrift Keynesian wreckage, surely?
1) Do you really think Obama writes a up a shopping list? He is handed a letter to sign by some gremium of sages.
2) He doesn't even mention 3D TLC flash: announcement
3) That the stuff around the tech has to be designed appropriately should be obvious to the meanest intelligence
In the end this is just another "industrial policy" effort like the 80's "Strategic Computing Initiative" (this one is even called "National Strategic Computing Initiative" again) which started as response to Japan's Fifth-Generation Computer project but veered off into supercomputing and weapons technology within 2 years. More here: Strategic Computing Initiative and Book Reference. It is very unclear whether this is going to help one way or the other or from where the money is going to come from given the parlous, if not cancerous, state of finances with the next recession looming. There will be bailouts to push...
How is that going to help?
Plus it is not about "figuring out part of". It's about the existence of smooth solutions. This has nothing to do with computation or even practical applicability. And you will have to await a mathematical mind, prize money or not. Maybe Terry Tao will have a lucky break in solving a it?
gb2 you cave, Mulder
It is also why toilet water rotates in a different direction for Aussies (counterclockwise) versus Yanks (clockwise)
You can also be certain that planetary coriolis forces are not going to affect your bullet outside a zero.centered error bar. This is not a fucking neutron star!
