Run all executables which are supplied without Source Code in a chroot environment
Whether you have the source code is only relevant if your theorem prover can prove that shit won't hit the fan (however defined) when the program corresponding to said source is run. This is unlikely to be in the realm of attainable feats even in best conditions and even if said open sourced program has been written in Mercury.
1) Writing "# Scary!" in the code
2) Not performing any checks anyway
...probably because "no risk, no fun!"
Besides, future dynamical evolution [of suspiciously extra-solar comet 96P/Machholz 1] displays orbital flips when its eccentricity is excited to a high value and its orbit turns over by nearly 180°, rolling over its major axis. This unusual behaviour, that is preserved when post-Newtonian terms are included in the numerical integrations, may also help understand the production of NEOs on retrograde orbits.
post-Newtonian = Using GR in numerical integrations?
They must be way bigger to show up in the calculations.
We already know there are larger fish than the Not-Planet Known To Be Inhabited By Dwarfs:
There may even be quite a few mars-massing objects in non-ecliptic orbits. These are known as "Oligarchs". None has been found so far though.
Checking the abstract indicates that they expect larger-than Earth masses:
The existence of an outer planet beyond Pluto has been a matter of debate for decades and the recent discovery of 2012 VP113 has just revived the interest for this controversial topic. This Sedna-like object has the most distant perihelion of any known minor planet and the value of its argument of perihelion is close to 0°. This property appears to be shared by almost all known asteroids with semimajor axis greater than 150 au and perihelion greater than 30 au (the extreme trans-Neptunian objects or ETNOs), and this fact has been interpreted as evidence for the existence of a super-Earth at 250 au. In this scenario, a population of stable asteroids may be shepherded by a distant, undiscovered planet larger than the Earth that keeps the value of their argument of perihelion librating around 0° as a result of the Kozai mechanism. Here, we study the visibility of these ETNOs and confirm that the observed excess of objects reaching perihelion near the ascending node cannot be explained in terms of any observational biases. This excess must be a true feature of this population and its possible origin is explored in the framework of the Kozai effect. The analysis of several possible scenarios strongly suggest that at least two trans-Plutonian planets must exist.
"2012 VP113" is of course also called "Biden".
Take a mars bar and call me in the morning.
Also: "INTRUSION DETECTED - FIREWALL BREACHED".
At least you get a porn flick at the far end.
Ouch. FOILED AGAIN!
OTOH, Trinity accurately hacks via SSH in the Matrix #3 I think. I can just barely remember.
"it's a Unix system, I know this"
Just as ADORABLE as back then!
Apple computers can interface directory to Aliens
When Steave Jobs has seen a Turing Machine, he has seen them all.
There is a XIII series?
The original comic didn't feature skeleton keys, just an onion layers of conspiracies, gunplay and dead people. Pretty gud!
Luckily for all concerned the hero of Blackhat is Chris “Thor” Hemsworth, who is as familiar with the gym as the server room.
In the real world, you will meet IT people like this, sadly in the other direction.
"THIS TIME IT'S ALL DIFFERENT!!"
No, I don't think so.
"NO-ONE COULD HAVE PREDICTED" etc. etc.
this was a successful TEST
But clearly that bar is still in the red?
Scotty, come out of that Jeffreys Tube!
I suppose killing the barge that way would still be hard to do no matter what.
A LIKELY story.
still doesn't beat arriving on a aircraft carrier with a mission accomplished banner 7 years before the war actually ends
"...before the war actually ants."
It ants into ISIS.
The sandy expanses may indeed be attractive to our southern neighbors, but if there is oil underneath, they will still not be spared the bombing.
Patriot Missiles: A cautionary tale of getting your floating point act together!
Yes, that's for YOU, young whippersnappers!
So can take a glorious trip to Europe? Preferably carrying an AK to unseat our heads of state?
This morning TheGOOG downloaded something new to Chrome
Why are you even consorting with Google. Are into succubi or something?
> Were this prison, you'd be our bitch.
Meanwhile, with Harper in charge, you know EXACTLY who is the one biting cushions.
...the burning white heat of hate whenever I see those nominal "heads of state" pushing forth their narcissistic agenda informed by the special interests whispering into their ears. What did they succeed in doing. Anything? Anything AT ALL? No. All their "achievements" are lies, flimflammery and massaging of statistics, and at best kicking the can down the street.
Begone! Begone forever.
such as edicts from the European Central Bank
... the Friday evening trains to Luxembourg were widely reported to be packed with people taking their week's cash-in-hand earnings to their Luxembourg banks
Never seen those over there. The people go from Luxembourg TO Belgium at the end of the day because Luxembourg is one of the rare places in Europoorland that are still economically active.
As to "evasion", frankly, if you worked in Belgium, you WOULD do that.
40% and more (probably more around 60% if VAT is counted, amirite?) for a non-existent, corrupt and dysfunctional government mainly known for building bridges to nowhere. The rest will will be taken upon your death.
The dictatorship of the proletariat was not meant to be like this.
The issue is also embarrassing for Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, as he was prime minister of the micro-state when the deal was done.
Also now talking tough about crackdowns on "tax avoiders".
He's like Marcellus Wallace, but contrrolling your fridge via the IoT
Everything important to civilisation," he contends, took place prior to 1914: he specifically mentions "the development of agriculture, the rise and fall of the Roman Empire and the Industrial Revolution".
A dubious claim. Antibiotics, Computers, Advanced Mathematics, Internal Combustion Engine are forgotten? I guess that would be "some kind of civilization" then. I also don't see how the Roman Empire comes into this. Europoor-centric, moi?
In the prof's view it's extremely urgent for the human race to cut down on fertiliser over-use, as this could knacker the eco-system to such an extent that it could no longer support civilisation and surviving humans would have to return to life as hunter-gatherers.
This point urgently needs further explanations. It seems to compress a few books into a pithy phrase.
I have heard that Phosphorus is hard and harder to find in appreciable quantities though. Let's have some market pricing....
Naomi Klein is not exactly well-known for her ability to research or present something she didn't explicitly decide to prove before writing the damn book.
Does anyone have the totally unwarrented feeling that he had a big folder in his desk and was just waiting and hoping for someone's cat to fall downstairs?
Totally unwarranted, I am sure.
Thank you for your interesting slice-of-life posting.
Your point being?
> whose entire agenda revolves around hiding the fucking obvious
Facesitting is forbidden in the UK!
Totally fits into the accelerating medievalization of society at the request of special interests that has been pushed for the last 30 years.
Don't talk, don't work, don't copy, don't hide, don't save, don't transact, don't read, don't think, don't research, don't hope, don't change unless the government gives you explicit approval.
Or a SWAT team will pull up.
I support this statement. JE SUIS EL REG!

More like TIFKAM. Pretty pictures, blaring into your eyes.
It's too late for mindbleach. It was ALWAYS too late for mindbleach.

"Wise before his age", huh?
Go back to Computer Science 101 and learn something.
Design space explorations!
> 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.
