I don't think we are there yet, but there is definitely a War on Cash afoot and you can bet on what a Progressive Loves Most that it will only intensify.

I never signed anything that said Target can keep my info
So did you give it to them or not? Maybe you are not even affected?
The chicken cries are starting to get a bit deafening in here.
It says "siphoned unencrypted", which may mean quite a few things, and not necessarily "stored unencrypted".
Target funds the politicians?
A likely story.
You could probably pack a few Marines into it and pop them over the pond for an immediate visit to Islamabad, maybe?
The biggest black project being Obama, and look how that turned out.
huge budgets, tons of consultants, a fragmented procurement strategy
Plus unrealistic goals due to political pressurizing.
All of this to fulfill democrats' fantasms about Prussian-Style Social-Democratic Centralized Healthcare For Everyone that no-one wants and no-wants to pay for.
After this, surely the next stop is federally mandated single-payer healthcare.
It reminds me of crop circles.
> the shite they have inflicted on the IT industry for the last 20 or so years
Really? I think back on to the horrors of getting the corner retailer sell me an acceptable PC that didn't look like it was assembled in the Soviet Union before mail-order came along. Granted things didn't fully keep the level during all the time.
What is the Total Benefit of Ownership (ownership of people? do I get this right?) of a salesforce that doesn't perform except in pleasuring red-tinged zombies calling for "jobs"?
Yes, now it is too late to start the OBAMARINGWORLD project.
We are all doomed.
For me neither.
I'm gonna link the article to discussions on "weird science" websites as retaliation, then sit back while bizarre stuff appears in the comment section.
.44 Magnum the most powerful handgun in the world
That's old school.
In the 21st you want the Smith & Wesson Model 500
I don't know what such power is good for. Maybe removal of the kebabs in the New Jersey governorate?
Anyway, I came here for the aliens, where are they.
Whatever happened to the HB Gary outfit, btw?
Reductio ad absurdum, bitches!
Only it's fully retarded. You should learn to handle your rhetorical devices.
Because hedgehog DNA is not very interesting to the device at hand (unless we are into witchcraft and other causal models with scant empirical support).
But core meltdown sure is.
That guy must be japanese!
Reminds me of the good old times when students unsullied by technology asked me to please indicate the whereabouts of the server's office.
Why so negative?
I'm sure if there is a good use for it, it will be found. Remember the "whole world needs 5 computers" stuff? Your imagination may well be less developed than it needs to be.
Here is a good use: politicial scoring: Hey watson, I have this letter here reported on the Daily Beast, "Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013"; here are the endorsers. Any of those faggots somehow related to PNAC? ... "Yes, Dave, they are all neocons and several have close ties to AIPAC, AEI and FDD."
And "the Chinese" have a quantum computer?
Rather, for IBM's cloud-based service to generate insights greater than the sum of an individual developer's contributed data
But that's not the goal of this system, right? It should be an "adviser system", so in the classical example of medicine, you have this set of information about a patient and you ask the watson what the hell is up with the patient; it will follow the text links through its medical dictionaries and papers and come up with a few hits. It's search. Will it be able to discover that the patient has two different problems? Possibly not. Can you bolt a probabilistic reasoning engine onto the side? Probably not. Should Doug Lenat be gotten out of retirement? Maybe yes.
It's like those two land wars on the Eurasian Continent.
"It's gonna be ok any minute now...."
If there is any good news for vendors, it is that Gartner analysts believe this to be rock bottom for the market and that many markets will have nowhere to go but up.
"Nope, it's gonna go down further..."
Kids today have enough breathing space and calm on buses to do their homework??
So if Joe Average had a clue, what would he buy?
Maybe your mother is better at programming than you are. At least when it comes to security.
Maybe you are a bit of prima donna.
> Structured programming if used sensibly and non-dogmatically
Jesus Christ, the 70s called. They want their debates back.
"the worst Internet Worm ever was on UNIX based systems..."
At a time when "Internet" consisted of a few thousand Unix and VAXen strung together by leased lines.
10/10 would troll with.
Man: (paraphrased) Something about C/C++
Arthur: (uninterested) Yes...
Man: Something about programmers using C/C++
Arthur: (perturbed) Yes I see!
Man: Finally something about the mothers of C/C++ programmers
Arthur: (mad) Be quiet!
I may remind the dear correspondent that back in the times when X11 was written, C++ was unstandardized, Ada compilers were expensive, D or golang were not to be found. Yes, you could have written it in Pascal.
I wonder what kind of
cretinperson downvotes a perfectly good comment about naming conventions?
Are we to be spared nothing?
Or is it because the link to Wikipedia doesn't reach Orlowski levels of hip?
ALl of that could be avoided with proper sub-functions
This Compact, he said, has developed over the past hundred years of telephone service, and it's the FCC's job to ensure that it's not broken during the IP-transition – as much as some telecoms would like to have free rein in the emerging digital wonderland.
Bad telecoms. They should be nationalized forthwith. Do they actually DO anything? We already had to give monopoly to Ma Bell, and look how that ended. Antitrust, breakups, the whole enchilada...
"This is not a laissez-faire, back-off kind of a thing,"
I'm sure it isn't. License, regulations, patents, directives, temporary grant of monopolies, not to mention taxes and subsidies.
Nope, no "laissez faire" here. It would be a good idea to try it though.
But he's from state, a good part of which is occupied in destroying the Net by incontinent hoovering, so what's new.
Speed: How fast you get there
Performance: How much not tired you are when you get there
Paris, because, you know.
But what happens if they just ring the bell at the docking point?
groundbreaking research being conducted
Should be replaced by "groundbreaking duck-tape and WD5 engineering being conducted".
This sounds more and more like something out of a John Brunner novel.
I like where this is going.
You are forgetting a few very interesting schemes about the creation of free money which are very more interesting indeed.
Most excellent indeed.
That will be a bit difficult to do, unless you have a plan of building a Death Star to put major holes into the continental plate?
It's actually like living on the upper layer of a lava lamp.
Ohh... the nice colors.
And some poster do not have the self-discipline to spell correctly.
> we have almost run out of stuff to burn
LOLNO. The 70s called, they want their "out of oil but 'fraid of nukes" crap back.
Not a problem. The president and selected members of the military-congressional-industrial complex will suffer with you - from orbit.
As long as you regularly paid your social security "contributions", that is. Give generously!
"Most likely, it is a clusters of fissionable material reaching critical mass and a rapid decay process causing eruptions."
When do we finally get that "lauhging elf" icon?
Reiser is still alive but his girlfriend not so much, thanks to Reiser.
You statement is of bad taste.
So what does the girlfriend say?
I am pretty sure she has a word to put in about the likelihood of that guy doing a Krokodil Homemix while in Vegas.
> I see you don't own a pig farm.
jake, is that you?
> the SS is alive and well in America...
Tell us something new. There are also a few people who are potentially donor/carries of HITLER'S BRAIN.
Did anyone see Cheney lates, btw? I'm not sure what he's up to.
I'm sure they need Peacemakers today.
So even if you gathered up all the relatively heavy elements that the nova produced, there wouldn't be enough hydrogen left to trigger star formation again.
Actually, the outer layers of the old ball should yield a a solar mass of perfectly good hydrogen.
And heat. You have to get rid of the heat.
"I'm pretty sure that"
Your surety will have to take the proper dent once you realize that depending on your local movement (e.g. shuttling towards and from the khazi), the actual date of the supernovation does suffer serious adjustments due to the effects of Special Relativity and large leverage (i.e. distance to the boomcentre), although I cannot be bothered to compute the actual amounts of delta-t involved.
