Dumps of your conversation are being tugged away as we speak!
The public key, as the name implies, is quite safe to leave lying around on foreign computers' authorized_keys files.
Frankly, how well would you feel having a public key in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys files that has the friendly comment "support access - do not remove!" next to it?
I thought all that secret backdoor stuff was just in the movies.
So how has that ten-year survivial training in the Amazonian been? You must have an amazing tan.
Of course .. is also a match to .* so it then recursed up to /home and then down in to all other user's directories!
What system does that??
Thankfully I was sane enough to do this as myself, not root, so no damage was done. But it taught me a valuable lesson!
Yep, generally used filesystems in 2014 are STILL just databases with no transaction support. This is bad.
Unfortunately it's down to the fact the that stuff seen by programs has no type and an array of typeless strings of which some may be options, some may be concatenated options, some may be stuff expanded by the shell (and this in a frankly inconsistent manner revealed whenever hacking bash), some may be badly quoted strings with spaces ... this is REALLY HARD TO HANDLE CORRECTLY.
Well, when in doubt, print "usage:"
Seems like someone is trying to literally scare up a new market.
Slimy megacorps tracking your kid? Non-problem? You bet.
I have nothing to hide
Please, take a place on the couch. Why do you feel you have nothing to hide?
I feel we're handing too much authority to others but the only other choice is to opt out of useful advances.
You can't "opt out" of the state's surveillance, dude. Android and friends are just chaff in comparison.
Making money? So immoral!!
Thumbs down on tube emulation?
Some people believe in homepathy, what do I know?
> a sound with frequencies up to F,
Yeah yeah but that is evidently the sound with a discrete Fourier decomposition, i.e. the one which repeats forever, infinitely often.
If a sinewave carries no information how is it I can hear it perfectly well?
You brain will filter it out in 5 minutes. That should tell you something.
(Ok, so it carries amplitude, frequency, and arguably phase. But what of it?)
Did that really happen?
This article is the aural equivalent of arguing we should all want perfectly nutritionally balance food pellets rather than the vast array of culinary delights we choose to partake of.
I would rather think it argues you can have perfectly good stuff in the digital processing arena for cheap while people with extremely expensive rigs are barely approaching the bronze age, with all the superstition you would expect.

Why not replace the tube by a proper digital circuit simulating the tube?
You could even save energy!
DOWNVOTERS: WHERE WE VOTE, WE DON'T NEED NO FACTS!
How about some facts in this write-up?
I didn't know that Amazon had Amazon-branded games running on its Amazon-branded android gear with in-game purchasing unlocked by logging into your Amazon account once so that Wifebeater Baby, unaware that he his in an electronic Yakuza den, can rack up the charges by randomly pushing on floating icons. Can anyone explain or is that another fresh-from skool lawyer at the FTC full of youthful hormones trying his mettle at the cost of the economy and the taxpayer?
Thanks, that makes some sense at least.
Wait, I thought that was part of the OS??
(But seriously, why is no-one asking why Luxembourg and Belgium are being positively stuffed with US govnm't obligations at the present time? A far more interesting question.)
Jose Chung: "As for her partner Reinhardt Muldradt - a ticking time-bomb of insanity - his quest into the unknown has so warped his psyche - one shudders to wonder how he can receive any pleasures from life."

What would have to Abdul's the veggie merchant's kickstarter project under the same circumstances?
Ah, but these are not EU Glocks. (Why should the EU give out Austrian produce in a US-occupied territory). To cite:
The author of the report from the Government Accountability Office says U.S. military officials do not know what happened to 30 percent of the weapons the United States distributed to Iraqi forces from 2004 through early this year as part of an effort to train and equip the troops. The highest previous estimate of unaccounted-for weapons was 14,000, in a report issued last year by the inspector general for Iraq reconstruction.
But yes, quite certainly these were sold on. This is why Obama's proposal to ship weapons to Syria overtly (and prior to that, one suspects, covertly ship the contents of the armories of late strongman Ghaddafi via CIA express) is not necessarily the best idea. ISIS now has 2 billion cash to spend.
Today, one uses at least an AK-74, if not an AK-103. Although the AKs that Petraeus lost in the Iraq omnishambles before the surge are labeled as "AK-47", so who knows.
Anyway, these ISIS guys have the chutzpah (ha HA!) of using the technology the use of which would probably merit a righteous cutting off of the hands (possibly at the neck level) when used. Will their heads explode?
Come off it, they didn't have a competent government to start with. The deservedly dead Gadaffi
Uh... Ghadaffi (our acceptably-good-guy/bad-guy permamorphist) is starring in another show with Hillary Clinton.
killed about a million in his hobby war with Iran
Well, we delivered the goods and the gas to do it because we didn't like people not liking our bastard the Shah or Iran. Basically, we were for Hitler before we were against him. If there were any justice, big radioactive meteors incubating flesh-eating diseases would strike the "West" any minute now. Luckily, there isn't.
I won't even go into the utterly despicable French/British behaviour post-WWI and Skyes/Pikot, which deserves a separate introduction of the people involved to the Black Box of Pain.
> Calling Iraq a "nation"
It's a bloody stump of a colonial area (sort-of a "country"). It may have a sort-kinda authoritarian state apparatus under under Maliki, but there is no nation anywhere to be seen. The Kurds (under a quasi-mafiosi but lesser-of-two-evil kind of leadership) are giving the finger to the freakshow (AFAIK Turkey has already okayed the move, amazingly). Sunni obscurantists are creating a new region around the Syrian-Iraqi border area - good times for rope dealers. Soon you will see ethnic cleansing fanning out from the Shia sectors and the pre-2007-surge cleaning of Sunni enclaves will be scaled out... Meanwhile car bombs and hellfire missiles are going off everywhere.
No nation here. Nope, sir.
YOU HAVE BEEN CAUGHT REG.
DON'T DO IT AGAIN.
AT LEAST NOT BEFORE 14:00.
The days, they are back again!!

That would certainly beat the exploding tantal capacitor.
"His conclusion, in this paper at IOP, is that both Einstein's prediction of the speed of light – 299,792,458 metres per second in a vacuum – is wrong"
1) Einstein didn't "predict" the speed of light. That speed has to be measured. It is always 1.
2) He correctly posited that the most elegant way out of the pretzel-shaped contortions that physicists were making to adapt their theories to the logical implications of electromagnetism and the absence of any experimental sign of an absolute rest system in which light was moving was to go whole hog and posit that the speed of light must be the same in all reference systems. Which means that durations and lengths differ between reference systems
3) Quantum mechanics comes in later, whereby you can have "faster than light" events in the small (resolved by changing to antiparticles in other reference frames) and the world-famous "entanglements" (which have nothing to do with any speed at all, except the speed of thought).
No one can, in reality, pay for anything without Uncle Sam says OK.
And with FATCA now in effect, no-one can get his savings from underneath his nose (and savings have been, to all intent and purposes, outlawed via negative interest rates).
1) PayPal is not a bank; it is an outfit that lives from people transferring money through them
2) They are not the International Organization Against Crypto And Other Terrorist Tools either
3) PayPal board members should be handed over to ISIS for a quick interrogation about their deep knowledge of the koranic verses for this.
ICANN ordered to hand them all over!
If you are paying for it, it is a service.
"Positive rights" are an idea that sprung from festering progressive minds.
There aren't any in a world not based on pony lore.

It's called angling for the votes.
"Modern businesses know that flexible working boosts productivity and staff morale, and helps them keep their top talent so that they can grow"

I think a found a piece of good old Aristolean logic behind the sofa. Maybe it can be useful in parliament?
Got this from QNX
0% creepy, rilly. You get more emotional response manglement whenever a politician or a spokesperson appears on the tube and uses newspeak to whip up a frenzy. Extra buffer stuffing when it's an economist working for our top clown court.
You seem to have a pretty firm grasp of the obvious.
Have you managed to light your cave-illuminating fire yet?
> knew full well what they were shooting down
No they didn't. It reasonably looked like a US interloper to them.
The point is that the shootdown couldn't be hushed up for long.
The Malay and/or Vietnamese en route traffic controllers were not up to European standards. The major flight path deviation/alteration on the radar scopes
There weren't any because the plane went off primary radar, then the transponder went suspiciously at the time handover to VIetnam would be happening.
went unnoticed for an unknown period of time
17 minutes before Vietnam asked Malaysia whether there shouldn't be a plane or something, an interval described as "peculiarly long" by I-don't know who.
during which the aircraft's IFF or whatever it's called now had been turned off.
See above. It's called a transponder.
Sounds interesting, but as usual you must marry the rest of Microsoft ecosystem. Which is an unhealthy thing to do.
