Wasn't she voted into the Afghan Parliament?
Where did that PhD come from? University of Life?
Native encryption and secure cryptography erase (data wiping) that is NIST-Compliant and FIPS certified
Purposefully flaky and price-upgradingly compliant to a bunch of hocus-pocus.
it looks like ass
Better eat some crow, then.
The software is modular and pervasive, and unique thanks to its ability to inject itself into all new processes via the Windows security registry function CreateProcess API
I do not understand? Is fork() now considered a black art skill? Has it come to that?
With enough qubits, a quantum computer could therefore represent an awful lot of states simultaneously. If you can then ask the quantum computer the right question, its waveform should collapse into the answer.
With the answer given having a certain classical probability of being correct.
The quantum computer therefore – in theory – lets you get a complex answer in a single operation, rather than having to step through lots of iterations, as in a classical computer.
Only for the following algorithms:
2) Searching in databases
All the other classical turing-machine algorithms have to STAY classical.
Frankly, if it wasn't terrible, it would have been adopted ten years ago.
Well, sure it is the current Earth Year. Which is just a fixed number of seconds. Which are defined using distance and the universal dimensionless constant 1 ... or lightspeed for the hoi polloi.
Am I wrong?
Yes. You seem to be mix this up with more oriental approaches like Zen Buddhism and things like that.
(I still hope to see Frank Herbert's Zensunni religion before I log off; it would be weird, but the human mind is malleable and can pull practically anything out of the hat as long as verification of it can be left as an exercise...)
It gets really, really old
It might be you...
Further perusal of Jimbo's Excellent HTML Store™ revelas that...
Gnosticism presents a distinction between the highest, unknowable God and the demiurgic “creator” of the material. Several systems of Gnostic thought present the Demiurge as antagonistic to the will of the Supreme Being: his act of creation occurs in unconscious semblance of the divine model, and thus is fundamentally flawed, or else is formed with the malevolent intention of entrapping aspects of the divine in materiality. Thus, in such systems, the Demiurge acts as a solution to (or, at least possibly, the problem or cause that gives rise to) the problem of evil. In the most radical form of Christian Gnosticism, the Demiurge is the "jealous God" of the Old Testament.
So I think there is some leeway in those texts from the sandy lands.
gb2 Jesus Camp!
Earth never wanted to be a Stormtrooper!
Few things are great about hydro.
1) Pick up fone to Canada
2) Order up a few CANDUs
4) ENERGY from cheap uranium.
On the minus side, the lead time is prolly 10 years.
On the plus side, you will enrage Amurricans and Greens because you can produce Plutonium in a continuous cycle.
Added bonus if you order up a Russian fast breeder package.
I hope it is Sun powered!
Not a logarithmic scale of badassery then?
"After receiving a poor performance report, he reportedly became disgruntled and leaked prerelease Windows 8 software to an unnamed French blogger."
Why did the poor performance report make him hate French bloggers that much? It is a mystery. Will we ever know?
Well, it sure brings back memories from before the Global War On Stuff -- struggling with getting servlet engines to work via ajp while random people told me how cool and easy asp and ActiveX were only to be hacked up the wazoo a bit later, so .... yeah.
Which ignores the fact many IIS server admins also try to hide their servers' identities as well
RESPECT THEIR SECURITY-FU! No wait. Why lose time with inanities like that? Oh well...
Indeed, many IIS servers run on corporate intranets and therefore are not visible on the Web at all, making IIS's real share of the webserver market even larger than the Netcraft survey suggest.
"Please find the various problems with this statement for 15 points."
You could say exactly the same thing about the large number of (insecure) Linux servers I see with Apache installed and advertising itself by default.
a) how do you know about their apparent "Insecurity"?
b) what's wrong with proud advertising? It's not like IIS says "I'm a trolling dog" either.
holes like SAMBA configuration files
WTF are you talking about?
A true firefox!
It's that time of the year again. Oh well.
NO! Enough of the dead sets lovingly shooped in in which actors who do not know what they are supposed to be enact movements and monologues of stultefying woodenness.
where the makers are to some level accountable or at least traceable
Why though? Just to tick the box in the compliance statement?
The popular crypto platform recently became a pariah after its shadowy developers posted a note to the official website claiming it was compromised and users should adopt rival Microsoft Bitlocker.
This has as much truth as a Psaki™ State Department Official Statement™ on the situation in Ukraine.
El Reg reported Truecrypt version 7.2 was dropping malware executables
YouTube video or it didn't happen.
People wilfully/negligently exposing said stuff to the internet *after* being informed about it being broken get buste
60'000 sysops get dragged before the beak.
Heed on, gentlemen!
Farmer was also highly critical of the protocol stating it was vulnerable by design and contained next to no documentation pointing users to ways to improve their security postures. "This was tantamount to major server manufacturers 'harming their customers', he said.
Do not assign to stupidity what can easily be explained by well-funded malice.
Looks like an evil Godzilla-sized Roomba. Sure to hoover up your data.
The Juno space probe to Jupiter is solar powered because of a shortage of nuclear waste.
That ain't waste. You need to bredd your Pu-235 from Neptunium in a special breeder reactor.
interruptible supplies are nothing new or scary
Did the good people of the Socialist Republic of California get their rolling brownouts under control? There was a big fuss in the start of the noughties after ENRON, then the economy imploded and GULF WAR FOREVER happened, then the housing bubble RESCUED EVERYTHING, so all of that got pushed off the very staid and rational newspaper front pages...
Your hysteresis is showing!
managed 'run-down' of the economy, as planned under Agenda 21
As opposed to the unmanaged run-down of the economy, completely ad-libbed by our central banking keynesians?
everything seems to have turned so very f***ing 1970
U2 will be back?

"Flesh over a metal endoskeleton. It cannot be reasoned with or bargained with. And it drinks vodka."
It was Gell-Mann and Zweig who first introduced the concept of quarks in 1964, not Freeman Dyson.
Well, Gell-Mann pissed all over the idea at first and gave believers a hard time and some righteous belittling - he was sure "quarks" were only a mathematical neat way of expressing the nucleon behaviour. Apparently this is also where the name "quark" comes from - he called them "quirks", which sounded like "quarks". None of the Finnegan's Wake tall story stuff.
Once experiments came in, he decided to retcon his attitude on the actual existence of quarks. Such is life in the physics community.
I am sure I can be wrong. However, these ideas are not from me, they are a rather self-consistent model of how it works created by thousands of people each more brainy than myself. I can't compete with that ...
Heisenberg believed that the exchange particle involved was an electron (he did not have many particles from which to choose). This electron had to have some rather odd characteristics, however, such as no spin and no magnetic moment, and this made Heisenberg's theory ultimately unacceptable.
The binding is done via meson exchange, right? I remember that Yukawa came up with that idea. Note that if the neutron *could* decay in a stable nucleus, you *would* see it as there is always a diagram in which it decays immediately before any exchange happens (and it is bound to be advertised to the rest of the universe as such, i.e. "observed"). So energy constraints, like program contracts and assertions, are strong.
Anyway, today we have Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics, and the first Google result that comes up:
1000 PetaFLOPS * Year for an Alpha Particle Approximation? FUND IT!
it's a tiny ball of wibbly-wobbly quarky-gluony ... stuff
More like a Feynman diagram of improbable depth and complexity (think all possible interactions on overhead slides, layered on top of each other, with lesser probability the more complex the diagram is); like a a thin shell over a reality that is so alien and abstract in comparison that merely contemplating it would damage the sanity of the ordinary person! The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents...
More likely they still decay, but the free electron is quickly bound to a nearby proton, turning it into a neutron. From the outside it would appear that the neutron is stable
Your physics intuition only competes with your lack of google fu.
The reason that neutrons do not decay in stable nuclei is because doing so would result in a nucleus with HIGHER energy. And this is forbidden by a Brussels decree!
Commenting clearly reached a bottom

When progressivism occurred.
None shall stand out, and they shall all duly fill their paperwork for proper taxation and birth-to-death accompaniement by the State.
(Except for the cronies behind the curtain, of course.)
Then True Equality shall be achieved.
language-based jokes are highly effective at identifying humans
Just call MICROFTXXX, and get in touch.
Hmm.... "pedophilic manuals" come to hand. I mean, mind.
an average interrogator will not have more than 70 per cent chance of making the right identification after five minutes of questioning
It took me a full two minutes to ascertain that this means the "pass" criterium is indeed that more than 30 percent of the people shall fail to identify the machine behind the terminal as being, indeed, a machine after five minutes.
Maybe he thought the world is full of Alan Turings.
...how this actually works.
Is this acceptance testing of certain classes of programs? I imagine one could "test" to a certain degree a missile targeting algorithm in a virtual environment by having players try to evade it in a virtual plane, but in general I don't see how to test software this way.
The best numbers that could be pulled out of a hat!
