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.
you're propaganda is showing. The monks did not go on a rampage. The PRC paramilitaries did, and the Tibetan people retaliated.

@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...
or recreational, it's all good.
So long as you don't (potentially) hurt anyone other than yourself, fine.
Say, are those *brownies*?
Any known ip addresses that can be blocked?
re:So you think its funny do you?
Indeed I do.
Itty bitty violins.
Rubber bands are real cheap, Vets used to do cats that way.

Although I have heard of Jackie Chan, I don't know of any of that other stuff.

Unfortunately they announced it Mar. 31 Austin time...
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...)
You failed to make a point about virtualization.
By ISO definitions, billion = 10^9
We count quite well enough to send vehicles to other planets, how about you?
@ obscene? from the nation that brought you the karma sutra?

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.
@Great! use! of!
Clear why you'll never make space scientist...
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.
NASA can use a couple of kilos
They are unable to obtain any from US DOE to supply the radioisotope 'batteries' for deep space missions, so will happily take some off your hands.
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.
And what does it do for me?
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.
Not Harley riders. Leathers in the middle of Texas summers...
Yet another reason online gambling is silly
Might as well be banned. Can't trust the game, can't trust the bank.
Tickless idle is the bane of my existence. It drives guest oses mad in full up virtualization.
Resides quite nicely on my Palm Lifedrive as both a Palm document and a "word to go' TM .doc.
And no one else sees it unless I want them to.
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.
Lucky him. I get about 4 SPAMs/month via SMS here in S. Texas over Verizon. I forward them to Verizon, but get no acknowledgment of them.
And in related news
The temperature in Hades dropped rapidly toward 0 Celsius...
Let's say I'll believe it when I see it.
mobo is indeed the correct reference, and has been before you were crapping on a carpet.
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 consumer
I'm not picking up on why I would ever bother to buy a SIM card.
It comes with the phone, it makes the phone work... so unless I'm CIA or Al'Queda, why would I need another?
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...
since the 'real' human is sitting in meat space
why don't they just pick up the cell phone sitting beside them???
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?
Got lots of SCSI2 and 3, and a couple of SATAs, no SAS.
Therefore SCSI is useful, SAS is not.
Actually you're thing on the Federal Court of The Eastern District of Texas.
Easy mistake, merely 1000 klicks off.
Not that the British guv'mint cares
so much about what goes on in the sky, or on the moon, or stuff. Too much to do to make oneself PC and mediocre.
Not a NASA bird
We have several agencies that launch and control birds. The spy satellite in question is not a NASA bird, but a NSA one, and launched via an Air Force booster...
