Women are ... leaving homes, work and families behind in the continual search for pleasure.
So what's new?
"is there an option to not fully cooperate with the authorities?"
Probably not and as authorities are meant to check for problems in the routine to make the routine even less risk-free (or not), they will be fecking useless here.
"Ummm... you were using a novel rocket motor? Uh, err........"
This commiseration theatre is as disgusting as the perpetual "thanking the troops" freakshow.
Tell your boss right out he is a fscking arsehole.
If only we stopped exporting our freedoms we could laugh at them from orbit.
> If fact, you cannot launch anything without it.
OH REALLY? Citation needed. Will an irate insurance agent follow you to orbit?
If you want a glimpse in to future that Sir Richard Branson and his like are taking you to, then watch Elysium!
Anyone who thinks Elysium is some True Message Against Rampant Capitalism has any lesson beyond Hollywood retardation and Matt Damon's pseudo-social arsehattery should have his head examined pronto.
Pioneers == Those who come back to tell the tale.
The problem for European customers is one of corporate and customer data leaving the relatively favourable regulation of the EU for the US.
How does that make sense?
Insulation from the US was one reason cited by the AWS host, saying customers could now architect clouds for back-up and redundancy while keeping their data in the US, as they can now make their clouds span the Frankfurt and existing Dublin regions.
Here is a low-hanging fruit for improvement, El Reg: get an intern and make him read what you have written. Choose one who has "reading comprehension" on his CV though. Today one can never be sure.
Do you think you are special?
Probably a portemanteau term of "inadvisable" and "umentionable".
The PLAID (Protocol for Lightweight Authentication of Identity) cryptography kit appears to be
insecure designed by government.
Beleaguered cards spat out junk data encrypted with an RSA shill key and it was this ciphertext which could be crunched to discover the key used, and a users' card number with accuracy that increased significantly with the number of scans.
Finally that final sequence in War Games makes sense. Armed forces used PLAID to secure the launch codes.
SOAP and WSDL may be "overengineered" but at least they are engineered. Use them. But avoid RPC mode, that idea was dumb when Distributed Computing Environment was a thing, it is dumb today.
Sadly these people don't get paid with greenbacks sporting trollface.
So it's like nodejs, only less bad?

... that would be awesome.
NO FUN ALLOWED!
More like Hillary rubbing it in.
Weed's legal in Colorado!
Cracks legal in D.C.!
Time to upgrade the war on terror so that people buying cough syrup in the US and communist peasants in Mexico get what they are asking for!
The attack, blamed by US government sources on Russian hackers
Or maybe ISIS.
Or the Ayatollahs, if not the Ayy Lmaos.
Or maybe the halloweenized Ghaddafi, undead and baying for viagra-powered genocide.
Could be Beaucoup Haram or "Koni 2013".
Or what about Khorasan, the wholly-made-up "new terror threat"?
Or hybridized Russo-Chinese superhackers, reinforced with North Korean DNA?
Or the Ebola, now being fought by the National Guard in Liberia.
Or maybe the french terror clowns.
Enough enemies to make any neurotic go mad.
How do I download module from arxiv?
Every weel another layers of pwnage is being discovered.
It's like the "agressive clown spree" that has reportedly been plaguing european cities in recent times.
Maybe there is a connection between the planes of existence of the real world and the information world? How can we know?
> outsourced to India
Not even once!
Oh, a thumbdown. Carry on, comrade!
... especially when you are at the very edge of what government-industrial-policy-propelled tech can do.
We have confidence we can understand the problems and get back flying when we're ready to fly.
And, as Obama is wont to say "...so that after this initial surge of activity, we can have a more regular process just to make sure that we’re crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s going forward”
I suppose that the biggest effort goes into design and getting everyone to sign off the exact shape of gimmick X.
It would seem that putting it to frequent use can have beneficial consequences.
I have heard that is because you are getting rid of all the shitty nasty fat-seeking molecules that we now have everywhere in our tuna. We need the converse examination for women. Also include male and female lactation, please.
Oh, I can I have a larger version of the "hook-me" picture for this story?
The window tax was a property tax based on the number of windows in a house. It was a significant social, cultural, and architectural force in England, France and Scotland during the 18th and 19th centuries. To avoid the tax some houses from the period can be seen to have bricked-up window-spaces (ready to be glazed or reglazed at a later date), as a result of the tax. In England and Wales it was introduced in 1696 and was repealed in 1851, 156 years after first being introduced. France (established 1798, repealed 1926) and Scotland both had window taxes for similar reasons.
It sure made for pallid citizens and mold/mushroom cultivation.
Also, El Reg: That nice quadruped on the headline image is an actual fox. A firefox looks like a fat weasel.
With Muskian Aggro-Intelligence doing the coding, all of that arrogance and complacency would be a thing of the PAST!
If you really need the money, you ask the central bank.
No, but all these "unresponsive scripts" will now be a yotta less unresponsive than earlier.
Those too, but it's mainly the bureaucratic/politician complex.
Newspapers started carrying utterly fucking absurd criticism of the police/security services over not being able to put together 2 incredibly tiny clues out of a batch of around 20 billion such clues
Those poor security forces. They are being forced to be retarded!! But seriously, did any newspaper carry anything along the lines of the above criticism, instead of grandious hailing of "those who eat donuts and serve to protect our remarkable freedoms"?
Bruce Fein writes:
Sermonizing on behalf of the president at Harvard Law School on Sept. 16, John Brennan, current Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) and then Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, declared: “[O]ur highest priority is — and always will be — the safety and security of the American people. As President Obama has said, we have no greater responsibility as a government.”
But the president and DCI profoundly err. They have subordinated liberty to an effete quest for a risk-free existence, and inverted the nation’s philosophy and Constitution.
The highest and only priority of government was elaborated in the American Declaration of Independence: to secure unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, i.e, wisdom and virtue. The Declaration endorsed John Locke’s version of the social contract elaborated in The Second Treatise on Civil Government. Men consent to surrendering their freedom in a state of nature in exhange for the government’s protecton of their liberty and property from domestic or external predation or aggression.
The paramount end of the social contract is liberty. It accepts the risk of evil or anti-social conduct as necessary and inevitable. Otherwise, safety and security would crush liberty like czarist pogroms crushed Jews.
A Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde personality is latent in all humans. If safety and security trump all else — as Messrs. Obama and Brennan assert — then every creature on the planet is a candidate for extermination at the whim of the president and DCI.
Well, it is "Nature" magazine that is charging the money for the research paper. This is a for-profit outfit (Macmillan Publishers Limited, to be precise). You can probably download the raw picture from the researchers' website - sometimes even a preprint of the paper or the paper itself if the authors were good at "clarifying" intellectual property rights.
Here is how it works:
1) Scientist gets funding to do Science from NSF or other sources
2) Writes up paper
3) Decides to publish in Journal "X" (today many papers are put onto the arxiv for free though)
4) Journal X goes into Kyubee mode, puts out a contract saying "we pay you Z" (I have no idea what the going rate is; if it is negative, beware, it is probably a 'pay to publish' scam), "BUT you have to transfer the exclusive copyright to us, then we will peer-review it and if accepted it will appear in our renowned journal etc."
5) Journal with the research paper is published and sold generally to libraries (these subscriptions are expensive). Nature can be found at the street vendor's stall too though; I once found one in a shop in Madeira, of all places.
6) You may have a subscription to access all areas of the journal's web-enabled archive (often at rates that are very good in case you need more than 20 papers per year) or else pay lots of dosh for the reprint of a single article (in this case GBP 22). Inflation is nasty. IEEE articles that you now have to pay USD 30 for a single PDF may still have written "reprints can be obtained for 0.2 USD" underneath.
Frankly, it's hard to decide whether I prefer a hot planet (corals reefs up north) or a cool planet (dry regions, glittering ice on the horizon and big sea cows). Both have their charms.
Maybe I should buy both, with one a bit closer to the galactic core, should I need a pied-à-terre for these stupid bicentennial meetings....
Go to bed Calvin.
You can just use that Nazi U-Boot pen that Indy discovered in the Indian Ocean after he managed to hold on fast to the conning tower for about 8 days straight.
It's because space is really really big and asteroid belts are more like in 2001 than Star Wars.
... where they will find out that it has been totally dismantled and picked apart, then filled with the remains of a roadside picnic (non bio-degradeable) because Sol is situated in a galactic ghetto.
Your marketing skills need some honing.

At some point they will have to request ".caliphate" at ICANN.
There will be only a single address: "www.nofunallowed.caliphate"

I'm sceptical that a true AI program can be developed.
Actually it's probably pretty easy and I expect task-specific good, very good AI within the next 20. Anything that has a short-memory buffer than the human's "7 elements" will kick our arse.
But so what.
"I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I were to guess like what our biggest existential threat is, it’s probably that."
Seriously? Tomorrow a specially engineered pathogen can go AWOL from USAMRIID or some Monsanto biolab, nuclear war may start over any necon-coveted land with trace amounts of petrol, meteoroids may wreck our shit, ecoysystems may go titsup making the post-bronze age collapse look like a walk in the park, and he's worrying about AI?
Megahint: Unless the AI manages to P-ify NP, it's not going to magically transform the humans into computronium appendages.
Plus, it's kinda hard to produce cheaply unless functioning nanotech assembly is invented first. The jury is still out on whether that is even possible.
