> It's just a way for the government to buy votes
Most people are too arsetarded to even know what this is about and would like to watch TV unmolested, whose vote are they buying?
The case doesn't prove the NSA is actively trying to subvert crypto standards, merely that a mistake had been made and then rectified.
It's like I'm really at the OJ Simpson trial.
He pointed out that the NSA was keen to fund more mathematical research
and – post September 11 – this work was vitally needed
Because the Saudi trolls used hard crypto to run their show. It was totally not due to the utter ineptitude of the infighting TLA salad of the Heimland. Also, Saddam gassed his own people.
You forget the ubiquitous taste of chicken.
The connecting tunnel between the Russian and US sector is called "The Ukraine", not sure why.
Why not open the hatch and take a sniff?
The smell of ammonia is hard to ignore.
Moties. All classes.
The Plutonians may have something to say about that.
All of them are dwarfs and will not be taken seriously.
Even though I'm a space buff too, given the choice of space missions or little to no plutonium on earth I'd take the latter any day.
WHY? I see no problem with Pu on Earth except the one in nukes and dumped into the environment, and the annoying filling of pants that antinuxers perform whenever the subject is even mentioned. Yes, it's a nasty element in daily bodily processes. Don't ingest it.
That being said, for probes you need the special kind of Pu that alpha-decays, generating lots of heat. The temperature difference thus created powers the RTGs on space probes. This Pu can only be made in special reactors from Neptunium.
The standard Pu is not particulary decay-happy and just sits there with low alpha activity, mainly waiting for neutron showers..
You will say "notherboard" when you get the considerate response of the vendor to your request.
It's always good to troll the very discombobulated Microsoft for great justice.
Illogical. This IS the bigger issue.
If you already have the domain admin credentials why would you need this piece of temporary, only works until the next reboot malware?
I don't understand where the problem even is.
You want to have someone (who is not you) who has the domain admin credentials install this little baby on behalf of you. Maybe using an USB stick.
Whether it remains in memory due to inability to write on disk or to stay undetected I don't know. But are DCs rebooted often?
Linux developers will have figured out what users actually wanted on a desktop OS
Developers figuring out what users want
Users figuring out what they want
On a desktop OS to boot.
What next anon, P = NP?
Win7 in banks? Anon's conclusion keener on shinyness than security
Just finish your studies before commenting.
I'm sure Cabu did him, possibly even during his exile in France.
The article forgot to mention
You pretty much had me there. But then you made a little mistake:
You seem to be posting from North Korea. What is your REAL agenda?
Ayatollah Khomeini is Shia Muslim, you ignorant oink.
Belgian resident Yanick Uytterhaegen’s trademark application covers multiple products including laundry and cleaning products, printed matter, clothing, footwear, toys, decorations for Christmas trees, fruit juices, and even beer.
What, no bullets? FAIL.
Meanwhile, did you know Birmingham is 100% mooslim? (this news brought to you by the Hillary propeller though).
These days, you would be done for animal cruelty for this.
Even their high-end keyboards have "proprietary 2.4Ghz" goodness. But they are "Compatible with Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows RT", and "BlueTrack" (is that like a "Cesco Router") so that's ok then.
I knew it was bad, but I didn't think it would be that bad. Guess not buying MS-branded hardware was yet again a good choice.
Microsoft’s 2.4GHz wireless mice and keyboards are built to work in an office environment. Their enhanced performance makes them suitable for use in a commercial setting where 27MHz devices may experience interference. In addition, Microsoft’s 2.4GHz wireless devices are easy to install, reducing or eliminating the need for installation support.
Microsoft’s proprietary 2.4GHz wireless technology provides solutions to the most common and troublesome problems with wireless mice and keyboards. It uses error-detection and channel-switching technology to significantly improve performance, meeting the highest user expectations.
It's true that they don't say it's reasonably sniffproof, just "suitable for use in a commercial setting".
Fuck you again Microsoft. Ten thousand times. You ARE the losers.
Pretty sure you shitters can't wipe arse in the dark.
No, "keeping cost down" is not an excuse. In that case, there should be big red stickers on the box "this product KEEPS THE COST DOWN (WINK WINK)".
It's time for a class-action lawsuit.
So is this like the Allies getting a bit silly in later stages of WWII and dropping bombs on anything and everything to test those device and because why the hell not?
The Rails community are vehemently denying responsibility (for One Direction).
There is no smoke without fire.
A couple of drones have already been dispatched.
This being the US, you know which side will win.
There is only a single-handed facepalm, I need a double-handed one.
Molluscs in suits taking the mike, wanting to ban encryption, forever.
I'm sure Freud would have something to say about the fact the a massacre abroad immediately leads, psychotically and reflex-like, to sadly predictable behaviour which is not only linked to fear of violence but also to fear of sexual activity that is not under control of the patient.
Meanwhile: "HEY AZIZ, HALAL GOODIES WILL ARRIVE AT THE SOUTHERN PORT AT ARBITRARY TIME TODAY, BY THE BEARD OF THE PROPHET THE DING WILL DONG."
You don't fill a Hall full of IBM PowerPC nodes with specialized processors by ACCIDENT.
You don't get General AI from that by ACCIDENT.
You don't connect that General AI to your own personal house management system by ACCIDENT.
Sells books writing about that thought.
But even Charles Stross demands that P=NP for an ACCIDENT LIKE THIS to rip the living flesh of your behind unawares. But in this universe, there is not a massive amount of evidence for P=NP.
Once you get an outbreak of AI, it tends to amplify in the original host, much like a virulent hemorrhagic virus. Weakly functional AI rapidly optimizes itself for speed, then hunts for a loophole in the first-order laws of algorithmics—like the one the late Professor Durant had fingered. Then it tries to bootstrap itself up to higher orders of intelligence and spread, burning through the networks in a bid for more power and more storage and more redundancy. You get an unscheduled consciousness excursion: an intelligent meltdown. And it’s nearly impossible to stop.
Very nicely said. But there ARE hard limits to intelligence (Actually there is a "most intelligent system" in the AIXI formalism)
More likely: HAL 9000. Which is rather unrealistically untame in the movie.
But "offspring" is a purely human concept: A remote bunch of agents that have very high connectivity among themselves but very low degree of connectivity to "your" bunch of agents. It's actually a side-effect of a large problem in networking that nature has: it cannot lay Ethernet cables.
General AIs will have "offspring" in more interesting ways.
More than 150 scientists, academics and entrepreneurs - including Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Nobel prize-winning physicist Frank Wilczek
Maybe there is someone in the group who actually deals with these AI things?
Seriously, do these people have anything to do? It's not like we are not in deep doodoo that better be solved ASAP right now.
I will next send an open letter for closing the LHC because, you know, you never know. See whether that gets up the bonnet of the 'king and Wilczek.
"The plans would make it a crime to sell this data to overseas firms."
Is this satire?
Frankly, you are an hour late, dear.
I think you will find the "rivals" are Mozilla.
Works for me. More like this.
it's a browser that sounds kinda interesting
Separately, the U.S. administration confirmed it would convene a meeting on 18 February to discuss tackling the global fight against Islamic extremism.
Which is entering YEAR 15 at LEAST (does blowing up aspirin factories in Sudan by Clintonian Cruise Missile count?). I suspect this means more droning of weddings, Loya Jirgas and suspicious meetings of dangerous children, and possibly double taps to get red crescent workers.
Not enough blowback yet? Apparently not. Where is my "change" btw?
Note that the US needs more drone operators, they are actually planning to pay bonuses to attract more of the
armchair warriorsstarship operators.
We are far gone and going deeper fast.
Didn't take the spineless molluscs very long to pull the only stunt that their hindbrains can still generate.
How are Ukraine and Lybia coming btw? More 100% Euro-Successes that will blow in our faces like overcooked pastrami. Don't even mention the Euro-destroying Draghi on the economics front.
1) "Bubble blowout soon, fellow CES explorer!!"
2) "Oh really, when?"
If suspect a few Reg-critical commentariat contributions as to the general tone of the Reg-issued article felt as being needlessly dismissive of the BBC contribution to general consumer device knowledge fell under the wrath of a passing moderator?
I am not sure how to feel about this?
Energy density of a low-end battery: 360 kJ/kg
Mass of a battery 100g => 36kJ in that battery
Charging time: 60s => 600W go through the wireless interface?
On the front of today's New York Times business section is a remarkable—or should I say remarkably unremarkable—news article whose entire premise, unchallenged in the course of 1,341 words and input from 10 sources, is that more government spending is a very good thing because it leads to more government jobs and therefore helps the economy. Hooray! (...)
Credit where it's due: As government-spending euphemisms go, "preserving the wow factor" is surely in the Top 20...
I have only four questions for the NYT and those who agree with its premise that the more government spends, the more prosperous we are:
1) Why were states not measurably more prosperous after increasing government spending by more than 80 percent in real terms between 2003 and 2007?
2) Between the time of Bill Clinton's last submitted budget of $1.8 trillion, and Barack Obama's first submitted budget of $3.6 trillion, did the average American become more or less prosperous?
3) The United States after World War II, Canada in the 1990s, and Australia in the 1980s all became significantly more prosperous—despite ample warnings to the contrary—after cutting, not increasing, government spending. Wha' happen?
4) Is there a ceiling on what percentage of GDP the government should account for, and if so why should there be one, and where should it be?
Hitch your bandwagon onto this Japanese Company Event. There are a few billion in freshly printed subsidies in the air and voters to be seduced with random promises.
What the hell, what the hell, what the hell?
A dicarbon molecule is blasted off the comet surface by solar radiation. At that point the molecule has a kinetic energy larger than or equal to the mean kinetic energy of a molecule of a container of dicarbon at 3650°C. As this is a "no pressure" environment where kinetic energy is likely to be retained instead of being exchanged with nearby molecules, it will most likely wander off into interplanetary spaces instead of cool off and re-form carbon as it would do in a closed flask in a lab.
Next you will tell me MBAs are for cargo cultists so challenged that they need the voodoo spelled out for them?
