The Insolvency Commissioner's blog today has an interesting post on the subject:
The job of the insolvency practitioner is to review the conduct of a company’s directors before the business became insolvent. That investigation can look at the directors’ action as much as six years before the insolvency, and even further if there are criminal claims.
Following the review, the insolvency practitioner will prepare a director report which is to be filed with the Insolvency Services, and if the report demonstrates unfit conduct, the director can face serious sanctions:
Up to ten years imprisonment, a fine or both:
* Fraudulent trading ...
Up to 7 years imprisonment, a fine or both:
* Fraud in anticipation of winding up ...
A patch has been produced for daily versions but not yet distributed for regular builds, according to researchers.

What we need is a method of generating magnetic fields to induce a solar flare which will then act as a gas laser and take out the asteroid.
I'm waiting for the breech anal-ysis to be released.
"strongly encrypted passwords". I hope that they were strongly hashed (irreversible) rather then encrypted (reversible), but you need to use words that push-chair purchasers might recognise.
When I installed a very early computerised digitising system at the Ordnance Survey in Southampton. My first job was at Laser-Scan (founded by Otto Frisch). It must have been about 1980 or 1981. There was a "Fastrak" laser scanner attached to a VAX 11-780.
Here's a scan of a photo of the later design of the operator's console. A map was photographed onto a A6 negative, which was then scanned, a square mm at a time, by a red laser, and straight lines were followed automatically. The operator could select which line to follow at junctions using a tracker ball and 16 buttons (which could also be pressed as chords!). When a line had been digitised, a blue laser wrote on a piece of photochromic film sandwiched against the negative, removing it from the display.
I can remember scanning 1:1250 maps (NZ2741NW, Prebend's Bend, Durham, which was our standard demo), contour lines, and a project for the Forestry Commission where we digitised the boundaries of all the woodland in the UK (the green overlay from 1:50000 sheets, all 204 of them).

When I was at school in the late 70's, someone from Sellafield/Windscale/Calder Hall came to our physics class and passed around a stick of Uranium, wrapped in polythene. It was very heavy, and rather warm.
Google / Niantic's Ingress does exactly the same thing. Lots of photos of monuments, etc.
Will they be next in the firing line? And where will it end?
Ben Nevis is not quite 57° north. The southern end of Alaska is a bit north of 51°.
I've been half way up Pike's Peak in the spring. It's nothing compared to the Highlands of Scotland at this time of year.
I've never made it to the summit of the Ben. 1st attempt we came along the Càrn Mòr Dearg Arête in glorious sunshine, got as far of the abseil posts, saw the clouds rolling in, abandoned the climb and descended down the side of the water slide. 2nd time we'd done Number 4 gully, which was sheltered from the wind, but on the plateau the conditions were so unpleasant we made a direct line for the zig-zags.
I think I mean satire
No-one has yet mentioned this:

Let's have a hypervisor running in these CPUs
From "The Jargon File": The Wheel of Reincarnation: Term used to refer to a well-known effect whereby function in a computing system family is migrated out to special-purpose peripheral hardware for speed, then the peripheral evolves toward more computing power as it does its job, then somebody notices that it is inefficient to support two asymmetrical processors in the architecture and folds the function back into the main CPU, at which point the cycle begins again.

From the bug report for the current glibc getaddrinfo vulnerability:
"The use of MAXPACKET is a value/boolean-style check. The send_dg internal logic uses a value of *anssizp of MAXPACKET to indicate an internal buffer was allocated for the response. It does not contemplate a user might pass in a buffer that big, but let us ignore that for now."

Unfortunately the UNIX Heritage Society and Bell Labs sites archiving Dennis Ritchie's comments seem to have suffered from bit-rot.

Kees Cook: "evolution of seccomp"
Linux has seccomp, There are two calling methods. The simple one is that rather than specifying a list of system calls, seccomp's list is hard coded: exit(), sigreturn(), read() and write(). It's up to the program to do all of the opening of files, connecting of networking etc. before calling seccomp.
There is also a more complex interface, in which a list of system calls is specified using Berkeley Packet Filter (BPF). This seems to be pretty much equivalent to OpenBDS's pledge()

I do hope no-one is still running George 3, MAXIMOP or RSX-11M (though I bet the latter is still controlling a nuclear power station somewhere).
"NASA is reportedly seeking a replacement fluent in FORTRAN, Algol and assembly language [...]"
Just to clarify: would that be FORTRAN66 or FORTRAN77, I've got a certificate for that one somewhere...
As well as Fortran ( IV+ and later) , I've got both Algol 60 and Algol 68.
At last, a post that clarifies that the recent issue is that a small number of 1024 bit primes are very commonly used, and that the NSA is theoretically capable of analysing each such prime within its budget and a timescale short enough to return a dividend.
For the most common strength of Diffie-Hellman (1024 bits), it would cost a few hundred million dollars to build a machine, based on special purpose hardware, that would be able to crack one Diffie-Hellman prime every year.
Breaking a single, common 1024-bit prime would allow NSA to passively decrypt connections to two-thirds of VPNs and a quarter of all SSH servers globally. Breaking a second 1024-bit prime would allow passive eavesdropping on connections to nearly 20% of the top million HTTPS websites.
