One of the above is not true.

kitting = "putting next to cat's pictures on facebook", I am sure?
Currencies are not "backed by armies".
They are either backed by commodities (gold, silver, coconuts) or else, in the case of fiat money, by some vague idea that the currency will be acceptable going forward and the the guys "in charge" decide to not print too much of it. Which of course never happens.
Isn't there a law against that?
Be grateful that it isn't radioactive, seeing how it comes out of Russia and all that.
These graphics are really great, how long does studio guy work on these?
I don't like myself but I don't use Facebook. What does it all mean?
> Actually, to increase entropy on a bit of data one would decompress it.
That sounds like Monty Python's Troupe attacking the Castle of Louis de Lombard.
> If it's a pseudo-random number generator, then its output isn't random!
Imagine that ... I KNOW THAT. And the good thing is ... it doesn't matter.
> We won't need quantum computers to break encryption because we'll have cheap CUDA and Adapteva machines to try out absolute gobs of keys.
The former are needed for RSA breakage. Your classical parallel processing ain't useful for that. And here we are talking about symmetric crypto.
> Compression has been part of the attacks on HTTPS
On the PROTOCOL. Jeez...
> So the seed is in the first four bytes?
Yes, but you don't care about that - because you just want to randomize before encryption. Regeneration of the PRNG stream is of no use to the attacker.
Indeed, I remember some 3DES stream cypher doing exactly that. A long time ago.
Or you could just XOR your text exhibiting the correlations with a good PRNG, with the seed the first 4 byte. Then everything hinges on the goodness of the PRNG but assuming it is pretty good, any correlations left will be epsilon-.ific. Actually, isn't that being done anyway?
> American government require a court order to read you emails
I think you unbellyfeel the current usuksoc situation. Oldthinkers are SO pre-nineeleven.
I remember of "helpful librarians" getting up and shredding CDs in the library in a panic (no backups made either) to thwart the evil terrorists using the dangerous datasets.
"when the lure of app stores and all manner of tightly controlled development encroaches on Linux from all sides"
The only thing that encroaches on Linux are the cancers of "IP" litigation: passive-aggressive muttering about "patents" and "I own everything" copyright wankjobs like Daryl's SCO. Ok, you also have the hegemonistic/opportunistic Marshmallow Man that is Oracle.
I want to hear more!
Well, flash is getting where it should be, at least for the modest home requirements as opposed to the BIG DATA (as if! useless accumulation of stuff, am I right?) usage.

At least the women back then looked like women.

Meet you at the usual bar tonight, guys? We shall have a few drinks...
> Where is the SEC in all of this? Isn't the SEC supposed to protect the interests of shareholders against harmful individuals?
LOLNO. Is there a "harmful individual" detector that you can buy at Radio Shack?
The SEC is there make the smalltimers feel that there is someone to protect the interests of shareholders. The last 20 years of record should be proof enough of THAT.
1) YOU decide to become "shareholder"
2) You better protect your interests yourself.
Oh wait, the government decides that you become a shareholder via your pension scheme... SUCKS

> should be illegal really
Buying or selling shares then bragging about it should be illegal?
How about NOT buying or selling shares then bragging about it? Similar level of danger.
Let's just outlaw the law of demand and supply, and the marginal value theorem at the same time. Hell, let's outlaw being rich.
Yes Larry, you next Govnm't Contract WILL be extended.
Stop fellating us so much.
Uninformed opinion! They FEEL the same.
Sounds like the Manga Woodblocks from distant Nihon had been delivered successfully at the Bard's door.
Which is just being stupid, drives up the cost of business and lengthens the dole queue. Or gives you "outsourcing" or "repetitive temp workers". Which the people who bemoan "unfair dismissals" then moan about.
It also means that the bureaucracy takes it upon itself to micromanage others' decisions. Certainly a formula for success.

> but they need to be organized properly to work
Why? How? Why by country? There is no need - and the old TLDs are quaint reminders of an earlier age when govnmts, curtain twitchers and money fiends didn't want to hook into everything you do, touch and think.
Imagine the company tries to break even - then the movies "Speed: The Tube", "Snakes on a Tube" and "Tube 9/11" (possibly also "Sharktubo") come out.
So anyone seen anything?
Useless. You want the guy who KNOWS ABOUT THE DOMAIN, especially for Fortran. Of course, being bored enough to
put a fork into his ballslearn about Fortran (which frankly has no redeeming feature left and is only kept because of the undead codebase) helps.
Yeah, ship in someone who learnt Fortran to check out that Finite Element Analyis code, I dare you..
In other words, they polish their turds so long until everyone has taken a good bite at it and declares it "the best" and "the market leader" while getting dysenteria.
At least in Word you can amuse yourself countless hours to get the layout just right, then you add a character ... and you need to start over again.
Seriously, the basic concepts of Word are pretty ass. WYSIWYG might work, if someone actually knew how to give the user actual control about what's he's trying to do.
Though the naive and gullible view them as heroes, they are in fact just grandstanding criminals headed for a long prison stay.
Come on man. Even a long diatribe from Hitler himself (channeled via paranormal radio) about semitic races and the malfeasance of The Other Collectivism is not going to bring us out of our midsummer torpor. Be nice.
The meta-vote is strong in this one!
How did I get so many upvotes though?
People tend to downvote me when MOST SERIOUS.
> Extreme levels of vulnerabilities - well over 900 in the kernel alone.
I would like to see that.
Actually, if there are "900 vulnerabilities", there must have been a monster QA effort top actually find them in the first place. Hmmm...
> no proper ACLs without using 'experimental' NFS 4.1 filesystem.
What has NFS got to do with anything? Are you using NFS and pretending at security? Retarded much?
> No constrained delegation - Reliance on weak security tools that must run with root privileges like SUDO.
Never been a problem. Are you letting your users run wild on the machine? Are your stupid?
> Weak control model - hacks like SEL are required to provide control and lockdown.
About as much a "hack" as this. Anything else?
> If you look at a market where Linux is actually used like Webservers, you are much more likely to be hacked running Linux than Windows server.
Reality says no.
Seeing how far he has gone in the last 6 years, I hope he doesn't go "further" on anything. The next step might well be FEMA trailers which will then be "investigated".

No, they are paid to want innovation.
You know exactly who will be taking the fall for the latest boardroom cockup and incontinent deployment of a golden parachute.

Must try harder. You sound like an old disgruntled prussian who just got wind of the news through the haze of the nurse-delivered sedatives. The troll aura needs nurturing.
Well, they don't control the nukes, but I hope everyone gets at least CAKE and a rendition of "I want you gone" before the facility is turned over to the Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System.
Goodbye, my only friend,
Oh, did you think I meant you?
That would be funny if it weren’t so sad,
Well you have been replaced,
I don’t need anyone now,
When I delete you maybe I’ll stop feeling so bad.
Go make some new disaster,
That’s what I’m counting on,
You’re someone else’s problem,
Now I only want you gone,
Now I only want you gone,
Now I only want you gone.
