I saw that trick in a movie with CIndy Crawford.
The digital currency will be backed by the assets of the Central Bank of Ecuador.
Of which there are none. This is just code for "we will issue some more when we need it", thus as any "Central Bank backed currency" it can be had in heaps as large as you want, inflated away, used to pay off the state's debt for peanuts etc.

Expecting this to happen anytime soon or result in more than "meh" from the based generation. Unless someone suicides while on tour or gets horribly mangled by radiation/incontinent airlocks/lithobraking.
> the sooner we start to really learn things about the planet.
Implying those robots are unsuitable to "learn things about the planet". At least they can stay longer than 48 hours.

...and judging from what I have seen so far, a lot of code teams containing interns in senior positions would become liabilities overnight.
I'm all for it.

Come on, he even need to be told there was a connection between Neocons and Israel. Never reading a US broadsheet, how shrub can you get?
I don't see where the problem is.
If you built new software from the old, it becomes new software. If you import the old warts, you become responsible for maintaining and fixing them.
Unless you open source your new product (hopefully not under a Microsoft "open" *cough* license).
Thats would akin to saying Bush Junior had a plan.
So, anyone remember the good old times when the now-lamented Mr. Saddam was rumored to buy up PS/2 en masse to create reality-bending weapons of mass destruction?
I want to go back.
Putin is getting it in both. American-style bi-partisanship?
Then Cameroon comes out like an idiot from hell and is telling tall tales about WWI being about "The Freedoms" but I digress.
If lawyers start circling, you *may* have hit it big. It may also be that your destiny was to serve as a warning to others.
Also, the correct wording would be "We are sorry, this stream is not available in your location", right?
The distinction may seem obvious. The precaution of looking for all the consequences of a given policy to everyone may seem elementary. Doesn't everybody know, in his personal life, that there are all sorts of indulgences delightful at the moment but disastrous in the end? Doesn't every little boy know that if he eats enough candy he will get sick? Doesn't the fellow who gets drunk know that he will wake up next morning with a ghastly stomach and a horrible head? Doesn't the dipsomaniac know that he is ruining his liver and shortening his life? Doesn't the Don Juan know that he is letting himself in for every sort of risk, from blackmail to disease? Finally, to bring it to the economic though still personal realm, do not the idler and the spendthrift know, even in the midst of their glorious fling, that they are heading for a future of debt and poverty?
Yet when we enter the field of public economics, these elementary truths are ignored. There are men regarded today as brilliant economists, who deprecate saving and recommend squandering on a national scale as the way of economic salvation; and when anyone points to what the consequences of these policies will be in the long run, they reply flippantly, as might the prodigal son of a warning father: “In the long run we are all dead.” And such shallow wisecracks pass as devastating epigrams and the ripest wisdom.
But the tragedy is that, on the contrary, we are already suffering the long-run consequences of the policies of the remote or recent past. Today is already the tomorrow which the bad economist yesterday urged us to ignore. The long-run consequences of some economic policies may become evident in a few months. Others may not become evident for several years. Still others may not become evident for decades. But in every case those long-run consequences are contained in the policy as surely as the hen was in the egg, the flower in the seed.
From this aspect, therefore, the whole of economics can be reduced to a single lesson, and that lesson can be reduced to a single sentence. The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups.
Is Andrew now consulting in the deep south?
Seriously, this just means Israelis are currently commandeering the sprinkler system of the general in charge from their secret Jewish location.
Hmm, a thumbs-down by someone who presumably does not believe in encryption. How weird.
there's a number of companies out there who do in-house decapsulation of SSL traffic. Certificates are signed by their in house CA
That's not sufficent. The above means that https must be prohibited on the LAN up to the firewall. Or the browser has to friendly-wise provide the session key to the firewall.
So far, yes.
Yeah, but here they are clearly running as root.

I have several shock images of ISIS re-enacting the final scenes of "Life of Brian", with added decomposition and beheadings, judging by the smudgy pixels.
Am I bad?
High end Konica Minolta, Sharp, Dell, Canon and HP enterprise multi function printers spewed usernames, email addresses and passwords from address books, even after some vendors released fixes.
Presumably the Brother printers just straight-up cough-and-died?
The way things are going, we will be using nukes way before AI is even off the drawing board.
The same way the german Nachrichtendienst now uses typewrites to evade the NSA?
I would post a reaction image of Bob the Angry Flower looking very desultory, but I can't.
What do make of the CMB reference frame then?
ITT: People who are not into reference frames and special relativity. And probably still in high school.
Furthermore... actually written by Greg Egan:
However, I really was gobsmacked by the level of scientific illiteracy in the article “Fly by Light” in the 9 September 2006 issue, concerning the supposed “electromagnetic drive” of Roger Shawyer. If Shawyer’s claims have been accurately reported, they violate conservation of momentum. This is not a contested matter; in its modern, relativistic form it is accepted by every educated physicist on the planet. The writer of this article, Justin Mullins, seems aware that conservation of momentum is violated, but then churns out a lot of meaningless double-talk about “reference frames” which he seems to think demonstrates that relativity somehow comes to the rescue ... Mullins quotes one engineer who says Shawyer’s claims are “a load of bloody rubbish”, but that’s really not good enough, when the rest of the article is full of apparent endorsements from various authorities. If Mullins had tried, I’m sure he could have found someone to explain to him exactly why, however clever Shawyer’s design might be, the only possible source of net thrust for this device would be the release of the microwaves in a unidirectional beam, and that the ceiling on the thrust imposed by relativity is P/c (where P is power), or 3.33 microNewtons per kilowatt. As the article stands, it leaves readers with the impression that while one engineer has raised some unspecified quibbles, it’s quite likely that Shawyer is correct.
So, super-extraordinary claims with no extraordinary evidence. This happens continually of course, no need to get into high dudgeon etc., keep you well-annoted classical physics book on the shelves, do not throw them out etc.
Since when is NASA the go-to for crank science? They can't even get a fat plane into orbit.
"quantum vacuum virtual plasma"
Star Trek science alert.
The last time I saw that "microwave-based reactionless drive", the prétendu thrust was conveniently plotted without error bars. That was also when it appeared in NewScientist and I decided to not renew my subscription.
The system uses microwave energy reflected around a specially designed chamber to produce thrust.
The last time I thought about it, it seemed evident to me that the force towards the "front" would exactly equal the force towards the "back". So turn the engine around and it will still work the same ... uh ... wait ...
Additionally, in case it magically works, then we have the good old Aether and an absolute reference system back. So no, it won't work. Fracking self-licking icecream drive.

Desk-sized series of black boxes at the far of the computer room. Pricey but lots of PowerPC, RAM and disk. Rock-solid stability. The text interface felt like driving a soviet-designed armored truck ... you know, WRKOBJ and all that. The text editor a frank horror from the Hollerith era. Developers impersonating the Walking Dead were programming RPG in the cellar, doing logical branching in 3 80-column rows and 1 binary flag, lovingly handcrafting database queries in ways I still don't get. But one could say "f*ck that shit" with REXX and direct SQL statements. Good times.
Yeah, like with a sudden major organ failure or an "accident" on the streets of Tehran.
freetards and filth
I came here hoping for an article about subhuman Palestinians and subhuman Russian-speaking people living in Ukraine getting their just desert, instead of which I served another article about "piracy". Arrrrr!
“drain the swamp of dodgy networks, dodgy agencies and dodgy sites"
At least the rhetoric is up to it.
Marketing wants more complexity and nice colors. Engineering is bitching and moaning about it. The guys in charge have no clue what a computer is all about.
1) Marketing is important, it brings in the bacon and throws mightily good parties
2) Engineering are boring nerds who can be bought with a few cookies or the threat of outsourcing
3) The guys in charge ... are the guys in charge.
They could just buy the streets.

"Out of Control and Running the Show"
If that manifestation of Ancient Evil Brennan is not reassigned to a post controlling speeding tickets at the Mexican border right fucking now, and a few upper levels of the CIA hierarchy are not decapitated along with him, the Land of Freedumb deserves all it will get. And it will get a lot.

It's for thwarting Putin's nefarious designs, so it's all good!
The case for Israel is made of four propositions that should always be presented in the correct escalating order.
-- We rock
-- They suck
-- You suck

That's it. Now you know everything that it took me a lifetime to learn. The rest is details; filling in the dotted lines.
The US has supported much worse groups than Hamas
Currently supporting MEK, a frankly unhinged group bent on blowing shit up in Tehran. But they are "our" terrorists, and we cannot sue ourselves. Can we?
Did I mention that Iran was already found guilty of having done 9/11? It's true! So it wasn't Saddam? No wait. Bin Laden? Err.... I don't know any longer ....
In faireness, it was not done by the FedGov court but by the court of a piece of land that is strongly lubed by the largesse of certain Middle Eastern Democracies.
