The SS was formed by the treasury Dept. in the 19th century to fight currency counterfeiting.
When it became apparent that US Presidents needed bodyguards, the SS was used because it was the only federal police force that existed at the time (way before the FBI).
irrelevant to opensource
the license of whatever cryptography used is only relevant if they change the source code and republish it.
Use of it in their systems certainly *DOES NOT* require a revelation of what they are using or how.
Reduce the excess population
@BOFH - the movie
> and who came up with the word movie - any Americans among us?
Texan here, close enough I hope...
My understanding was that the early movies were played in theaters that previously displayed slide shows, which were quite popular during the 19th century. Anyway, those venues had screens and power suitable for the projectors, and as the images moved...
Any known ip addresses that can be blocked?
Although I have heard of Jackie Chan, I don't know of any of that other stuff.
What is it, anime?
I thank you for demonstrating XP is rubbish.
I suggest you move on to a useful methodology.
it's free, does more than the online photoshop, and you won't be putting your private stuff in public (and the only limit ti size and storage is your own machine, and then there's bandwidth and latency...)
@ obscene? from the nation that brought you the karma sutra?
Ghandi wanted all the ancient temples torn down because of "obscenity"
Haven't seen the video, so you may want to avoid the advertising flacks "all".
Earth and Sky podcasts
assuming they are the same Earth and Sky broadcasts we get on public radio they are well worth opening the pod bay doors for.
It is RHEL
the rhel5 announce list from Red Hat indicates that clearly, and Red Hat doesn't care.
We test Red Hat, SLES, BSD and several other *nixes. If installing RHEL is taking hours then you have h/w issues.
I don't 'interface' with Red Hat's sales team, but the JasperServer issue sounds like sale has grown up to be a vaporware big boy.
I don't have any issues with RedHat of SuSE products, to me its about configuring your desktop and getting the apps you want. *Full disclosure*, I run FreeBSD at home...
Quite a lot of us use the codec because all those flash sites insist on not being back compatible, and so break the browser when trying to use youtube and that other dynamic ad crap. The latter damn flash media insist that my current flash player doesn't support "instant install" which is just fine by me, as I want to know what the hell they are trying to install.
NASA has real media streams available.
As a Structured Programming and design follower, I've seen code reuse tossed around for 30 years. It rarely happens in the corp. world, but open source and languages like Perl and Python with their app. libraries make it happen a lot more.
As a previous poster alluded to, short single purpose functions, with limited number of arguments, no globals, single entrance and exit, well documented args and returns and descriptions of what it is supposed to do, placed somewhere it can be found is the only hope for reuse. OOP is just too scary, as the high priests think the code is supposed to be secret magic.
I have used C++
And it is bloated, and goddess help you debug it.
And save me from the high priests who can't stand any criticism of the language or OO.
I have written very large projects in C, and others in C++, and I slept better when the C projects deployed.
You are incorrect about the definition of 3rd World. Developing are quite likely 3rd world.
1st World is for the major economies (US, Europe, Russia)
2nd for the middlin' economies: (Egypt, Jordan, S. Africa)
3rd World for most of the rest,
and then failed states.
> mushrooms from cow crap
Ah yes, psilosybin. Much better crushed up, brewed as a tea, and mixed with orange juice.
Not that I would know of course...
Damn FEDs have cattle feed distributors put anti-fungals in cow feed to kill 'em off, which is why it's better to go with organic, grass fed beef ;-0
I personally wasted 18 months fixing lots of Y2K bugs, and did several thousand of us. We prevented the Y2K bug. Fortunately lots of systems, Unix derivatives and OS/2 come to mind, never had the problem to begin with.
When you figure out how to program something, say your VCR, then you can talk.
Try touching both terminals of a car battery. You will let go pretty damn quick!
I regard laptop/notebook/AIR as synonyms. Because we realize that the bottom of the unit getting to hot to have against our pants is a bad thing, people don't expect something they are carrying around with them as advertised to be dangerous t use.
Enlightenment, more to come
M$ is insisting that Virtualization vendors implement the Enlightenment "shim layer", to allow the guest image to be aware of and in formal contact with the hypervisor. This will allow a direct path for hacking by breaching the firewall between the guest and the host environment, and probably allow for some interesting DRM and EULA enforcement as well.
He probably said: "security sucks"
If he didn't refer to himself as a vegan, rather than herbivore; and if he didn't refer to ordinary omnivores as carnivores (as if that were an insult) then perhaps we would give a rat's ass to his opinions.
In the mean time I'm going to put a vegetarian on the BBQ for a nice 8 hour smoke and dinner tomorrow.
Will *anything* other than perhaps s/w enter the public domain.
Leave them in space III
Well (as someone who has had the pleasure of working with the Shuttles in the past) as said before, the shuttles aren't equipped for onorbit resupply. Besides crew consumables, there are the cryogenics for fuel cells, hydrazine for thrusters and OMS. It might be possible to work out some method to do so, but currently there is no ability. If I remember correctly the tanks assume 1G for tanking, so it might not work.
Orbits: The shuttles would have to be placed in high enough orbits so they wouldn't reenter and burn up after a couple of years. The ISS orbit is too low for this, that's why it requires periodic reboosts. Hubble's orbit is high enough, and certainly the shuttles can make it that high as a shuttle was used to place it there in the first place... Something to keep in mind is that NEO (Near Earth Orbit) isn't a benign place. Highly reactive monatomic Oxygen and Hydrogen are constantly attacking surfaces, as well as micrometeorites and space junk. Satellites intended to stay aloft for a long time are better protected to such then the shuttles, so the vehicles may not be terribly useful after a couple of years on orbit.
An interesting idea nonetheless...
As a tree-hugging hippy...
What are these fools trying to call the zoo irresponsible for 'allowing' the elephants to have sex?
Surely they should be outraged by promiscuous amoebas exchanging protoplasm willi-nilly, and the mating habits of some orchids <whew>.
What planet are these lackwits from, and where do I send a donation to send them back? (preferably in an unpressurized capsule lacking spacesuits...) Or perhaps they can throw their bodies between the elephants.
Energy Conversion Devices (inventor of the NiMH battery) produces a fuel converter whereby any organic fuel can be run through it to produce pure H2 and Carbon (black). Burn or run the Hydrogen through a fuel cell, catch the solid carbon in a suitable container, and there you are.
Carbon black is a valuable commodity, and no problems with high pressure containers for either H2 or CO2...
KVM doesn't offer the ASID support, CPU flag awareness, NUMA, shadow paging, 32/64 bit thunking, ACPI support, clock support and driver virtualization that the other virtualization methods offer, but what the hey. Who needs stuff that supports everything from *BSD to M$, huh?
