As Number 2 once said:
"Information. We want information."
One of the main goals in life is to find out WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON. This is that.
But we only captured the Wow signal's noise in some frequency bins, no actual signal.
It could have been anything. Even Doc Brown trying new stuff in the institute next door.
The Chilbolton face and the famous face on Mars (Below). Notice the resemblance?
Not sure whether trolling or just "I Want To Believe" deluded.
Getting that Iraqi feel.
This, then, is the story of our liberation. Suck air and grab clusters. Heigh-ho, here is the tale.
August was the month, a Tuesday in August. These words are meaningless now, so far have we progressed; but many things known and discussed by our primitive ancestors, our unliberated, unreconstructed forefathers, are devoid of sense to our free minds. Still the tale must be told, with all of its incredible place-names and vanished points of reference.
Why must it be told? Have any of you a better thing to do? We have had water and weeds and lie in a valley of gusts, So rest, relax and listen. And suck air, suck air.
On a Tuesday in August, the ship appeared in the sky over France in a part of the world then known as Europe. Five miles long the ship was, and word has come down to us that it looked like an enormous silver cigar.
The tale goes on to tell of the panic and consternation among our forefathers when the ship abruptly materialized in the summer-blue sky. How they ran, how they shouted, how they pointed!
How they excitedly notified the United Nations, one of their chiefest institutions, that a strange metal craft of incredible size had materialized over their land. How they sent an order here to cause military aircraft to surround it with loaded weapons, gave instructions there for hastily grouped scientists, with signaling apparatus, to approach it with friendly gestures. How, under the great ship, men with cameras took pictures of it; men with typewriters wrote stories about it; and men with concessions sold models of it.
Any civilization that stars building its economy on WOWSERS will not be a factor in the long run.
Because of two simple facts
I applaud this to-the-point analysis!
This is entirely supported by bretty-low-IQ "economists" blogging in the "New X'ran Times". We need a war now! Think of the children.
And being hawkish interstellar sure is going to bring in the votes and fatten the MIC. We are all Space Nazis now!
the inhabitants of Gisele 581
I can tell, the inhabitants of Gisele 581 are fierce. My doc gave me a lesson about STDs and I had to take antibiotics for two weeks.

These would still be complex organisms and would probably have Achilles Heels as high as Twin Towers.
For example, "And don't forget: Hydrate every day, eat a banana and take an extra dose of
Vitamin Cglide gel - a combination utterly toxic to all martian life forms! This message brought to you by Weyland-Yutani - Building Better Worlds, Today!"
I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to decide if that includes El Reg.
Seeing that they show us an illustration of a solar system where a red sun makes a planet reflect white light, I would say it absolutely does!
So, if one actually had a blackhole obscuring the starfield a few AUs away, one could easily deduce its spin by just looking for the whirled-up caustics?
Workstation == The machine that you want you run a program on which:
1) the cheap PCs in the lab room are simply unable to run (plus, those are "Windows", unserious at best)
2) the Gods of the Sun Mainframe In the Basement decided you won't run: "Have your department head submit a request, LOL! X terminal access? No bandwidth for that, sorry."
The state of play has very much changed since then, so that term makes only sense to oldsters who want to keep young people off their lawn.
Today, get a cheap terminal and allocate CPUs in the cloud,
....until your personal AI needs a big machine right in your physical neighborhood.
1) Does it have ECC RAM?
2) Can I get it with an Akademi logo?
keeping nearly a grand saved up in the bank would seem to be preferable
Not sure in what kind of fiat currency that kind of 1870-ish statement is still true.
which was synthesised (and accidentally ingested) in 1938 by Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann
Didn't he just absorb it through the skin though? Must have been quite the panic attack.
This makes no fucking sense.
In this scenario, the attacker has observed traffic across the switch and found that a specific machine is attempting to download a file located at the UNC path: \\10.0.0.100\Share\Login.bat
So cleary, a VPN isn't in use. The specific machine communicates in clear. From starbucks. Yeah, having extreme fun treating the starbucks LAN like like a Domain yet?
Ah, of course Linux has no such issues - it has nothing anywhere near Active Directory out of the box...
I hope not many people access \\10.0.0.100\Share\Login.bat (or anything else over CIFS for that matter) from a coffee shop without VPN?
Design errors are like that.
Is this why the SSH brute-forcing non-vulnerability on Linux was mentioned today? To provide some "fairness and balance"?
It's the next generation of "skilled developers" and "discerning managers" unburdened by knowledge or lessons learned (but possibly with a wad of ZIRP-y cash) throwing things at the market that they don't know how to develop, properly design nor test or even intend on supporting after the next 6 months.
Just stay away from this till after the superbubble pop.
biggest robber-baron turned philanthropist of all time Bill Gates
Let's not get into excesses of rhetoric here, shall we?
Robber-baron? Biggest? Sharp practices, yes. But at least it was all rather above-board.
Are you the newly minted commentard who has been tasked to tell us that all things Russian are shit?
the Linux community horribly abuses those inocents who are looking for support
And the cat torturing. He never mentioned the cat torturing.
Conclusion: Your post is F.U.D.
Or it's a post of someone with MS mindset.
Percival Lowell and Clive Tombaugh.
Seriously citation needed. I can't imagine people in 1930 being as keen on backronyms as people are today.
Do we have those logs of DIck Cheney's "extensive discussions" with the oil lobby just before WMD were detected in Iraq? I don't think the efforts to drill through the stonewall around those meetings ever came to anything?
These discussions are always food for laughter and desperation for the civilian population; just recently there was a dump whereby "Red Button" Hillary just wanted to bomb Libya and kill Ghaddafi per fas et nefas while the Pentagon and Hagel said "please don't it will cause problems". It did.
Will a raid now be performed on politician's private suites? How about we shut the money-printing ECB with all the employees inside and then we pop it with a few 155mm packages? No? Then the primary problems will remain. And they will blow up in our faces sooner rather than later.
"Banks such as HSBC have created a system for making themselves rich at the expense of society, by assisting in tax evasion and money laundering,"
It's a bank, man. That is the only actor in the economy who can legallly do with your money what it damn well pleases - in particular, give to to other people and pretend it didn't. See also: Bank Run.
have been subject to MC/DC and full code coverage testing
Show that this kind of dead chicken waving would have detected the error. MC/DC testing is voodoo from a prior age at the best of times. Indeed, this paper says: "We believe that the rigor of the MC/DC metric is highly sensitive to the structure of the implementation and can therefore be misleading as a test adequacy criterion.". In other words: Your MC/DC testing value depends on how you write your program, i.e. on syntax. Ouch.
On the ISS? I hope that little device has ECC RAM (or at least a memory page hashsum check algorithm)?
Morlocks heart the RasPi2
And of course the difference is not between "conscious" and "non-conscious" observers but between massive and small systems.
It makes for some good story-telling though. Anyone read Greg Egan's "Quarantaine"?
No, this works only for very small cats.
This is a nice experimental trick though: 1) Measure small cat, capturing cat state is a qubit 2) Do not extract classical YES/NO from qubit just move it around a bit 3) Reinject qubit into small cat system 4) Small cat STAYS unmeasured!
Yes, by nature of its massive size. Basically, the cat system observes the nuclear decay in the same way as the LHC detector observes the beam pipe: The superposition of states deep down will causally entail large changes in the macro objects (dead cats or energy changes in calorimeters). How this exactly selects the state of the micro system is not entirely clear but there are some sound mathematical approaches for dealing with this, maybe along these lines.
This sounds like a "null experiment": Testing that things we suspect are true are actually true.
After all, the whole attempt at building quantum computers is based on the idea that the complex-valued probability density function is an element of a (non-classical) reality, which we are going to damn well exploit the fuck out of.
The system's absence of a classical state before measurement (i.e. before extraction of a few classical bits) clearly follows in the footsteps of Anton Zeilinger's GHZ states, which I frankly can't remember the details of.
“we can't easily simulate quantum systems on a classical computer.”
Indeed so. You can do it, but with exponential slowdown. And not for continuous systems. The question of whether a continuous wave function even exists in nature is open and will probably remain so forever, after all you cannot measure it.
Please explain. One can only see through the prism of ingrained assumptions which both fade and become more categorical as one ages.
So, the rumor that the Wachowski brothers only made one movie ever will be cemented?
Pretty sure you can produce He in nuclear reactors, too, cracking Li for example.
You now realize that Philip K. Dick actually saw reality as it really is.
UBIK beer, what else!
You forgot "Trust the Computer".
Take AK-103 with canned beans and grass, go inna woods.

Otto is a fool, who doesn't seem to have the slightest knowledge of the situation at all.

ISO 27001. ISO 9000 is for hotel and canteen management.
I have no idea how to apply it. Neither do the Big Taxpayer-Funded Institutions guys I sometimes meet and who are supposed to implement that at said Big Taxpayer-Funded Institutions. I suppose having the licence to ignore details when you have a folder stack of ISO docs and a cozy office must be bliss and heaven.
