Maybe, if they close it out at $200? … maybe not!
... following the adventures of the US Transportation Security Agency?
Oh, SO sorry you had to wait, but don't worry; there's another flight tomorrow and the airline will be happy to sell you another nonrefundable ticket.
It wasn't very long ago that the new police chief in the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan, addressing one of the religious communities here, pointed out that the number of murders in Grand Rapids has been dropping for years, even though the number of shootings hasn't dropped.
Grand Rapids is home to a number of very good hospitals near the neighborhoods where shootings occur, and they're saving many people who would otherwise die – which has NOTHING to do with whether anyone is videotaping the police.
Is there a transcript?
Sure -- if you won't mind the People's Intelligence Commission reading your files and running DDoS on your computer.
Nah. Turn 'em ALL off.
No! Haven't owned a television nor watched one at home since 1997. And I don't stream video content, either. Sic transit etcetera; e pluribus scruem.
Tell them you appreciate their concerns and agree -- so you'll stop reading their content and find it elsewhere on the Web unmolested by popups.
A quick CTRLA/CTRL C can snatch the first page before the popup appears on the screen, too.
Of course, a word to a wise man is enough – but a whole paragraph is wasted on a damfool.
There go the one-time-pads. Ate 'em, did you? Off to Leavenworth! And what about this one, Professor? Decrypt it or rot in jail. http://www.skyknowledge.com/voynich-eg.gif
Anything possible is going to be looked at somewhere. If it's also practical and affordable, it will appear everywhere.
If I had the test equipment, and I were seeking to break into a device that wiped its memory after, say, 10 attempts, I'd buy a similar device and instrument all of the reset and I/O. I'd be looking for [pins] that only changed status or state on the 11th attempt – and then I'd pull it high or low or provide the normal signals to see if that was the controlling input. Not easy, and for most of not affordable, but certainly practical if you've got the money, the time, and the lab.
That's probably not what the FBI or their helpers did, but it's the first thing that I would have thought of. Then again, I have a different way of thinking. Just ask anyone who knows me!
The lone and level silicate particles stretch far away. ...
I was just a lad when Dad was stationed in Wiltshire with the USAF, but I remember the three-penny bits.
And I wonder, too. Is this a bow to truth in advertising? Given inflation,mightn't the Pound be now worth what thruppence was then?
When governments outlaw drones, our respective legislators are declared redundant.
Some years BT (Before Tweet), I quit my job at what was then a large computer company by resigning with an email to the CEO – and "ALL"– about restrictions the Chaebol taking over the firm had put on the ability of non-Koreans to make necessary design changes. Needless to say, my resignation was accepted.
After the Koreans got there many others left as well; one Web site I found later said the company entered bankruptcy after an "exodus of talent". I had by then gotten a much better job elsewhere, at a higher level of responsibility. I suspect the increase in pay more than made up for not staying around to get the severance package.
The judge in the case says that what the FBI wants the courts to order is illegal; the District Court's decision says in part (on page 30) :
"I therefore reject the government's interpretation of the AWA's gap-filling function, and conclude that a judicial order that would confer authority that Congress has considered and decided not to enact is not "agreeable to the usages and principles of law."
of Judge Orenstein's decision (which the FBI is appealing) is found on page 30:
"... a judicial order that would confer authority that Congress has considered and decided not to enact is not "agreeable to the usages and principles of law."
Applying that interpretation in this case compels the conclusion that the AWA does not authorize the relief the government seeks. "
... a Nobel Peace Prize. It might even make Yahoo mail worth using.
I junked (binned, for you who speak English) my TV in 1997; I hadn't much used it since 1993 anyway. This sort of an article makes me glad I did so, though I'll grant that my library is more expensive than a Smart TV.
On the other hand, books don't stop working when the Net goes down – or the power goes out.
"Somebody will have to get the message across, though."
They can't; there's a patent on the method.
If only I'd gone into a different field of electronics! I was 11 or 12 when a very perceptive young teacher, noting I had turned in an essay on using something like a cathode Ray tube for propulsion in space, had me talk to the Seventh Grade science class about ion propulsion. If-only department: if only I'd been steered to something other than radio when my home-made "rail-gun" stuck steel ball bearings into my bedroom wall! But no, Dad and the landlord had to buy me a radio kit. Heh!
Some years ago, I interviewed with a New York transportation agency for an engineering position. It was a very strange interview, with the interviewer doing everything he could to discourage me from applying for work there; it quickly became obvious the reason for the interview was not that they thought me a good candidate, but that they had to reject a certain number of applicants in order to be allowed to bring in the Japanese engineer a seller of railcars insisted be included in the deal.
The day will yet come, when no secrets will be permitted, no conversations remain unheard, and silence itself will be considered evidence one is concealing something others must know.

Blame 16:9 screens being cheaper due to the large number made for HDTV. But you're on-target about the utility of a sufficiently high-resolution wide display; I use a Dell 6410 with one and no longer need two monitors to accommodate all the windows I need open at the same time.
I just bought another HP; they're reliable. How reliable? It was already eight years old; THAT reliable.
I can't imagine why not.
My original ($884 in 1984) Model 100 was still working as of some time last year, and a 102; I have a Model 200 as well, and that one I actually used while I was being laid off in 2001. I'm not saying I use it now, and I only used it then to poke fun at another engineer in our layoff group, whose clamshell Apple laptop was only good for a couple of hours on its battery.
The Model 100's, 102's, and 200's could typically get 40 hours on one set of penlight batteries.
I also have an expanded Model 100 with 96 kB of available memory. Using it is like having three different Model 100s with 32 kB each.
May have violated US law by rendering once-functional instruments unable to call the national emergency number ( 9-1-1).
A US firm I won't name sold laptop computers to a news organization quite a few years ago, and ended up in court when that organization bought the wrong overseas power adapters.
Apparently working on the "cheaper is better, who needs to read the instructions?" theory, the organization bought 220/240 to 110/120 VAC adapters for resistive devices - irons, hair dryers and the like - instead of transformer based adapters meant for electronic applications. As I recall, there was at least one fire due to the decision.
We are today asking the court for a warrant to search the GPS history of Hargli bin Tawkin, and others as yet unnamed.
Extremists are relying less on the Internet and e-mail to pass plans, schedules and target data to each other. Conspirators now avoid email because post-Snowden, they know we read it; we've lost track of a number of cell's lately simply because they meet personally in places they're unlikely to attract attention. Location metadata from cellphones has already let us connect the dots in several cases,and GPS manufacturer databases will extend our ability to follow to terrorists to their headquarters before they can strike.
In a more physical manner, we are asking the Court to allow coded graphite nanoparticles to be placed in writing instruments, so we can use laser fluorescence to follow people who leave cryptic Post-It notes on public bulletin boards.
Yessir; we'll track them by the lead in their pencils, ha ha.
Thank you, Your Honor.
We'll have to air out the whole house.

re "the crabs and the pubes"
That deserves bonus upvotes!
"redress of grievances". It was good while it lasted.
Uh-huh. And whoever would cast the first stone is one really strong hurler.
The rules also hit "model airplanes"and that's one.
... are disgusted. Heck. I've glued together free-flight balsa gliders heavy enough to require registration*, and I suspect this will result in a temporary injunction until all the conflicting regulations (say, tethered flight - there's already an FAA exemption for that) and law sorted out, IDEALLY, common sense can take over. Good luck.
*Give or sell any heavy enough "model airplane" capable of sustained flight and that that transaction has to be reported as well.
Oh, that kinetic-energy-derived standard? What about the traditional "half brick inna sock?" Or a ladies handbag?
something done by a bean-counter cutting costs. Heh!
But nothing says they have to be subtle!
Be careful what you ask for; you may get it. Now Belgians will have to be subscribers to access Facebook(tm) content.
Right; PLC at almost any mains-compatible frequencies could be disastrous for a number of radio services.
"Discrete" logic, not "discreet" " -- but I won't tell. Heh!
