The setting for "Final Fantasy 2016: The ISIS within"
Weirdly, last time I installed NoScript, I don't know what happened and I suddenly was on a webpage with some security tool "RECOMMENDED BY EDWARD SNOWDEN"
I got the fuck out as fast as possible.
but doesn't outline what specific laws the exchange is accused of breaking
Anything which doesn't generate the appropriate amount of protection money for State breaks the law. That has been a local custom since the reign of Louis whomever. Tax collection in France is a permanent source of high and low comedy and recently things have been getting frankly desperate: everybody seems to be on the dole, companies are folding and people who can afford to are leaving. Nevertheless the well-remunerated bureaucracy waterhead insists on getting paid and bad-quality "social services" need more money. I hear it has come to the point where people who have paid off their house are looking at the business end of a new tax on "rent they are paying to themselves". Makes sense.
Given the way Russia's behaving right now, I can see the sense of it. Totally.
You mean, telling Kerry the Ketchup King that he is a totally fracking liar?
Have a bit of Armen Abazajian patent medicine against MSM indoc
Never change a partially dead horse that you are about to flog.
1961 wasn't 63 years ago.
Yeah, it feels more like yesterday.
Who said "The future is much like the present, only messier?"
But...but! MUH CRIMEA!! MUH UKRAINE!!!11
Upvoted for nasty citation.
Isn't that what cruise missiles were invented for?
What? No. These are not meant to intercept flying targets. Initially it was a stealthy, ground-hugging transporter for nuclear warheads - you know, go deep into Soviet territory for some action, possibly underneath radar (Risks of first-strike weapon? You bet! But it was mainly to keep the air force and its bombers, which had become a bit too obsolete, relevant).
When production became "cheap enough" in th early 90's, they got fitted with conventional warheads as needed. ("Needed" meaning: a politician needed to blow his load to show "resolve" but did not want to take the ugly decision to put "boots on the ground"; upon which there was much rejoicing ~~yeaaahhh~~)
It might be difficult to actually pull off.
Large airliners are fast and have messy air movements all around them.
An accident, being random, is far more likely.
This is no way to talk about duly elected politicians!
A written constitution?
We want to prevent "obsolescence due to changing circumstances", sir.
There is a cattle truck waiting for you, sir. Yes, the circumstances changed. Again. Sorry about that.
What's that you are showing me here? A musquet? How utterly quaint.
Right, take him away boys.
Ask Admiral Adama!
I thought that went out in the 19th century at the latest.
Yep, thereafter you had to rack up serious killcounts of natives. It all went professional and competitive, so I stopped watching.
The tethers hadn't failed, but the handles on the barrels had been torn off and left forlornly swinging on the leashes
Survival pods for some values of survival. 0/10, would not survive with.
Well I guess if or when the apocalypse comes, I'll be the one getting my hands on the shotgun and the tins of baked beans
So how is your DayZ survival training going?
Methan is to Titan like bacon is to Burger King?
The other future is that the aircraft carrier won't be there any longer when the drones return. Missiles FTW!
Entry onto a target system (referred to as exploit files in the rest of this document) start with a malicious Flash object embedded into a PDF file. When the file is launched, the object exploits the known CVE-2011-0611
Why put Flash into PDFs?
Are there actually strippers that rip out such "customer experience enhancing" crap before PDFs are opened?
Nothing new here.
"combat terror on all fronts including the cyber dimension"
Cue incineration of random civilians across the occupied territories and maybe an air strike or two on Assad's forces to shown them. Followed by fist-waving at Iran and strong condemnation of the UN non-condemnation of the terrorist attacks against our Tweets.
1) Freshly deskooled lawyer type unburdened by any knowledge discovers the tech sector.
2) Source code is very valuable right? I hear "hackers" are sharing this illegally on the Interwebs.
4) RETARDATION, aided and abetted by the usual cloudy bendover.
In that world, there needs to be a sane way of providing day to day ongoing development for compatibility, integration, and features that don't amount to a bill for 50~60% of the original purchase cost in upgrade fees and consulting time every 18~24 months.
You may notice that this demand is COMPLETELY orthogonal to "SaaS" approaches. Vendors that provide this for on-premise solutions and/or "in-house SaaS" sure have the edge here.
Is it time already to make prospects think harder about whether they want to snuggle up to this slightly unclean

The vast majority of our customers will not see an increase in the cost of Office 365
As they are actually perfoming this, the vast majority of their customers WILL see an increase. Evidently.
"I believe its still good value for clients"
Sure you do Tim. Sure you do.
Frankly, the "markets" (i.e. useful idiots chasing after paper money and putting valuations pulled out of their behinds on other paper) needs a good spooking.
But no need to hasten it with rapidly combusting materials; the laws of the MARKET (the one with no scare quotes, coming from system theory) will reassart itself like a stellar magnetic field snapping back into place soon enough.
It is going to hurt.
AFAIK, wildcard interpretation in "CMD.EXE" (BARF!) is left to the called program.
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:"
I _expect_ them to be
You know, this is the Internet. You can still freely google the history of the 20th century. May be an eye opener.
Disgusting. Beyond redemption, a cancer for any attempt to return to a semblance of a liberal society. Only deep cleaning will ever put us on the tracks of sanity again.
Frankly, the fact that only Snowden ragequit out of that festering bureaucratic freakshow of self-justifying career mummies says it all.
What good is having the finest automation of humanity if you cannot put it to some good use?
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.
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.
Audiophile Boffins - We do what must because we can
For the good of all of us
Except the ones who are deaf
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.
(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.)
