It's WASPish suburban dinotopia!
So which is the single non-ignored one?
(had to be said)
Better shut up.
Steve Jobs is a "marketing person" as hard as they come. The producer was The Other Steve. Maybe Jobs' bigger-than-others' sociopathy made him a winner.
That was probably a question from "Jeopardy"
"as far as reasonably practical" - Who gets to define "reasonably"? The shareholders?
I'm sorry, shareholder companies don't work that way.
It's the safety assurance people. Who put up a recommendation to the board. Who then decides.Which then goes into the minutes. If the regulator is ok with that, cool.
That sounds like no increase, ie continue to under-invest.
Who gets to define "under-invest"? Retards in forums?
I'd prefer if safety in the air wasn't a "for profit" activity
Enjoy your soviet-era bare-knuckles flights.
You seem to follow the low-brow "Marxist" view of what shareholding is all about and how investment works.
Please upgrade to IQ 75.
Also, saying that "investment was not as high as expected" could just mean that someone decided that things were good enough and didn't want to go for gold-plating or that traction could not be achieved because projects went slower than expected. Simples.
can't figure out how to move an excess of CO2 and heat some place less harmful
Or they could just simply widen the planet's orbit.
Is that a nuclear fireball over the Tomorrowland Tower?
It must be a practical joke, like the "axle-mounted rotative device to support linear movement of goods" patent (or whatever it was called) to just troll the USPTO for the doofus club it is.
They also work differently.
You wear tin foil hat => You get carried off
You don't wear sheeple hat => You get carried off
Would that be a no-win, no-fee grue?
Only tard who haven't realized that taxes ARE exploitation are paying attention to those kinds of things.
They are just selling "coffee", not droning people with
big government bucks money allocated from taxpayers by do-gooder liberventionists, FFS!

The little lamb is named Birke, and is known to have a fleece as white as precipitation in the form of flakes of crystalline ice.
Wouldn't she be called Ammonia, then?
And how are you going to make a penalty big enough to make big medical companies actually pay attention without the risk of collateral damage? And since the medical profession is about saving lives, that collateral damage can turn deadly.
The US market in healthcare is totally dysfunctional anyway and caught in the vice of crazy-arse regulation, and stalking no-win no-fee lawyers while nepostistic payouts and subsidies are guaranteed to connected players via RetardoCare all the while "progressives" are baying for "cheap healthcare" at "no cost". A bit of collateral damage might be exactly what the doctor ordered to properly euthanize the whole festering heap.
The U.S. was naïve and foolish to ever get in bed with the unscrupulous Russian government.
Senator McCain, sir! Don't you have a rabid attack dog speech to prepare on Ukraine? Stop posting here. There's people to save and countries to bomb!
"ULA is honored to launch this unique spacecraft for the U.S Air Force. Congratulations to the Air Force and all of our mission partners on today's successful launch! The seamless integration between the Air Force, Boeing, and the entire mission team culminated in today's successful launch of the AFSPC-5 mission."
Goddammit, son! Did you tune into Radio Soviet Corporate America again? Turn that shit off!
...unless I get GERTY to manage my house.
It isn't just children, adults also go into a comatose state and become unresponsive to locally generated input.
I have also reflected on bringing cattle prods to the synchronization meetings as people not currently "on air" are prodding the portable bullshit for "urgent mails" or repeatedly tapping the screen because there is some game on for which you have to respond in realtime to other players (something invented by the Google cancer, I hear). It's like something out of a comedy show.
Underage drinking sex? A new activity?
...bought via Baidu!
I thought the whole thing about babies brains was that it was a shedload of computing power dedicated to processing data?
Exactly. There are two things in this universe: Bulk matter and structures able to process data.
Seriously, I hope his statement was marketing material by Baidu and he just read it off.
Content compression: "I love Baidu"
"[We must not] allow a means of communications which it simply isn't possible to read"
For starters, politicians would have to shut up talking utter bollocks.
It's not going to happen.
But consider that they didn't call in an air strike.
"Diary strike on my position!"
2262 cattle-caused injuries were reported in NZ. Even sheep caused 1500 or so injuries
Statistics don't mean anything if no context is given though.
So.... how many of the bluejackets are recycled veterans of the "Mission Accomplished" wars?
Didn't we have that discussion back before Y2K?
Why connect everything to everythimg else in such a dangerous way? It is insane!
Can you explain why you believe any of this?
Do you also believe no planes rammed the WTC?
Pretty much this. The design criteria that go into a home router with multimedia storage (cheap and nasty and everything on the same cable) are NOT the same as those that go into a plane (unless there is a war on and most of the capital infrastructure can no longer deliver), even if people get that impression from watching too much Navy CSI or whether crud fills the screens these days.
Think about O rings, and Feynman, and pressure to deliver on time and on budget. At any cost.
If you really want to make a good point, it helps to actually know the story. "Pressure to deliver on time and on budget at any cost" had nought to do with the Challenger Launch Disaster except in hindsight. It was a problem of creeping, uncorrected biases of the risk perception. These are very hard to prevent.

I do think we might agree on one point: if people can't determine after reading several articles at Ars Technica and The Register whether the two systems are even *connected* or not, then either the articles are weakly researched, or such essential details are kept under wraps -- quite possibly both.
It is a good question but I can at least say that there are people thinking about the security implications at aerospace companies and making doubly sure that data goes only one way. Sure there may be undiscovered problems, but SOHO routers these ain't.
"Earlier you said you gave up trying to infiltrate the cockpit from the IFES?"
Not the first time an IFES has caused a problem, see this deadly crash caused by shoddy install:
Quite so. There is a clear link between the IFES failure and loss of plane control: electric power. Arrest it now!!
Joke Icon doesn't cover it...
Indeed it doesn't. It's a sad indictment of the level of intelligent discourse that, today, passes as acceptable.
No wonder we risk going to "nucular" war with Russia while making fart jokes over Ukrainian gas.
We haven't made any progress from when it was feared that Kevin Mitnick could start WWIII from prison by whistling launch codes in DTMF into the phone if any were provided to him to him, right?
Don't they have some terrorist sleeper cell to "incite" and then drag off to the cleaners?
So how about for-profit academics with corporate backing bolstered by govnm't bureaucracies?
You don't actually live in America do you, because you would know you can't do shit these days without giving out your SS number.
That's the effing point: If you give them to world&dog they are not secure. Using them for things they are not mean to be used for does not make them secure or worthy of high-level security measure. Read the link, Einstein.
Get out of here, Stalker!
all they need to do is manufacture the airframe and body
Didn't this kind of "only" exercise take ~10y for the X-33. Then the towel got thrown in?
Orbital will be using them for ISS resupply missions!
Once they get one off the pad.
There is a reason for why reusing old engines meant for a rocket that never survived launch back when UFOs were fresh is not the best idea.
Evidence says no, at least for the refurbished ones. Also, Preparing of NK-33 engine mass production says "NK-33 acquired the outlook for mass production restoration due to those successful launches.". This does not necessarily mean that russians re-use old engines, just that up to Feb. 2014 they didn't mass-produce them.
Additionally, the failure modes seems to have nothing to do first first-stage engines.
abnormal operation of the third stage engine booster
Not the NK-33. These are RD-0212 made by "Kosberg". Do they have any in store back from the glasnost era? I don't know...
On second thoughts, these guys most likely source a good percentage of the parts from the eastern provinces of Ukraine, which are now being freedomized by the neocon cabal...
And if you combine it with IoT, you are looking at the mother of all hypelodes. It might open a Rift in spacetime.
... is there any adult on the planet that gives a rat's ass?
Planet's going up in flames currently mon, and the gvnm't is crawling up people's collective arse. Better get your rocks off while you still can... and while your money still can buy an "Oculus Rift", whatever that is (sound suspiciously sexual, somehow?)
maintain the 2 dimensional asymmetric resonant response time people are accustomed to
But these cables will need some additional oxygen-depleted copper.
