Re: Awesome job title
I hope the uniform is stylish.
Also, all photoshoots must be done from floor level looking up at the chin.

A few large, black "cleaner" vans have been spotted being loaded with bottles of FUD, lobbyists, lawyers and stuffed brown envelopes and been seen exiting the Microsoft UK parking lot, driving by grim-faced "agents".
F-Secure is greatly reluctant to label NotPetya as “state sponsored”, but is “less and less” sceptical of that hypothesis.
I'm sure "consulting fees" can reduce the scepticism some more.
Seriously, this is such bullshit. Or anarcho-tyranny in action.
Who even cares?
The whole Lybian war cost "les contribuables" quite a bit more for frank negative results. Nobody of the glitterati even got a one-way ticket to the euthanizing Fletcher Memorial Home (along with Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice - one can dream right?) for that particular clusterfuck.
MUH COSTLY ALPHA JET! And the EU wants to inject a few billions more and upgrade its military prowess and cover Murricans in western Iraq and look into Ukraine? (While disallowing Wehrmacht memorabilia in barracks of course, can't have that, whoever heard of military being meant to kill anyone?)
Earlier this month, the Ukraine parliament said NATO membership is a “strategic target” for the country
The Ukraine parliament says a lot of things that are entirely ridiculous.
Also, Article 5 (and 6):
The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defence recognised by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such
action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area.
Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall immediately be reported to the Security Council. Such measures shall be terminated when the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain international peace and security .
For the purpose of Article 5, an armed attack on one or more of the Parties is deemed to include an armed attack:
- on the territory of any of the Parties in Europe or North America, on the Algerian Departments of France,
- on the territory of or on the Islands under the jurisdiction of any of the Parties in the North Atlantic area north of the Tropic of Cancer;
- on the forces, vessels, or aircraft of any of the Parties, when in or over these territories or any other area in Europe in which occupation forces of any of the Parties were stationed on the date when the Treaty entered into force or the Mediterranean Sea or the North Atlantic area north of the Tropic of Cancer.
Well, these days treaties are just pieces of paper and can be interpreted any which way that suits US. Which is why US is sitting in Syria and attacks Syrian forces in Syria w/o a declaration of war while doing SFA against ISIS, and it's fully OK.
Putin is looking personally into every company's relation to the state.
However, his permanent dwelling in a bacta tank plugged into the direct-to-brain infofeeds of his Evil Europe-Menacing-China-Looking-Shia-Supporting Empire are visibly taking a toll on him: he looks a bit tired on TV.
It will just be an incitement to declare local security and maintenance as incompetent, then ship the jobs to India.
Well, some people just want to see the world burn.
You know the carriers aren't nuclear armed, I know they aren't, it just doesn't seem to matter to the protesters.
I hear South Sudan is ready to accept anti-nuclear protesters with open arms.
Ok, we will wait for some enemy-du-jour to fire a few missiles into it resulting in nice explosions and mucho casualties before the selling action. Ok now?
These are actually platforms to ship migrants home when the time is ripe.
Or they can be sold later to some chinese mogul to make a luxury floating hotel/casino.
No, Murricans might think this has something to do with CHAMBERLAIN and FOREVER HITLER and kick off an all-encompassing nuclear war against Russia, China, Syria, Iran, Qatar, Koni and The Nork.
It's all the work of Emmanuel Bitcoin.
May Brother says so.
This useless flamebait.
Brings me back top when I was 14.
This can only happen when both logical processors on the same physical processor are active.
Combustion can only happen if air contains oxygen
American "culture" married to "marketing".
I thought the government is there to protect us?
So was she reassigned to cover foxterrier contests in Snowdonia for the next ten years?
While quantum computing can do the "travelling salesman" type calculations extremely quickly
Not it likely cannot.
Because "travelling salesman" is NP-hard and not likely to be in BQP.

Fingerpointing followed by security theatre, then nothing.
Bruteforcing can be restarted next month.
Linux is most definitely not free. What a myth!
That strawman rustle!
It is SUPERIOR to most other languages in just about every way, in its simplicity AND flexibility, and applicability to both low-level "hardware" coding, and high-level "UI" coding.
But today, we have Typed Assembly Language. It is time to go all the way and leave kid stuff behind.
Looking at proprietary code you're not supposed to have and telling someone about it is a shitty career-move for devs and coders, it opens you up to very nasty IP / copyright allegations / lawsuits.
Then just don't tell someone about it.
But I like the "Linox". Better (R) this thing now.
Well, you can always redesign the chip to obfuscate its energy usage,
Here for example, from 2003 (paywallyed): Masking the energy behavior of DES encryption [smart cards]:
Smart cards are vulnerable to both invasive and non-invasive attacks. Specifically, non-invasive attacks using power and timing measurements to extract the cryptographic key has drawn a lot of negative publicity for smart card usage. The power measurement techniques rely on the data-dependent energy behavior of the underlying system. Further, power analysis can be used to identify the specific portions of the program being executed to induce timing glitches that may in turn help to bypass key checking. Thus, it is important to mask the energy consumption when executing the encryption algorithms. In this work, we augment the instruction set architecture of a simple five-stage pipelined smart card processor with secure instructions to mask the energy differences due to key-related data-dependent computations in DES encryption. The secure versions operate on the normal and complementary versions of the operands simultaneously to mask the energy variations due to value dependent operations. However, this incurs the penalty of increased overall energy consumption in the data-path components. Consequently, we employ secure versions of instructions only for critical operations; that is we use secure instructions selectively, as directed by an optimizing compiler. Using a cycle-accurate energy simulator, we demonstrate the effectiveness of this enhancement. Our approach achieves the energy masking of critical operations consuming 83% less energy as compared to existing approaches employing dual rail circuits.
Can someone translate this? I don't know this particular dialect of marketingese.
Do you suffer from delusion?
Please quantify your thoughts in kilowatt and janskys otherwise it's just a waste of time.
Get back to me when the basic problems of von Neumann probes have been solved.
I will be waiting next to my phone.
chain of repeaters between here and Alpha Centauri which can handle the data with ease
A chain of weedy transmitters does not make a viable repeater chain and will definitely not be able to handle anything with ease.
Where do people get that stuff? Stephen Hawing?
You neet to put a RTG on each of those weedy probes and fit them with largish radio dishes.
"Microprobes" these ain't.
I think Afghans and a lot of Iraqis and Syrians want to discuss this "forgiveness" thing.

So it's Comey who tapes but it's Trump Emperor who gets whipped for it?
Following his first meeting with Trump on January 6, he [Comey] started recording contents of his private conversations with the president-elect on a secure FBI laptop in his car outside Trump Tower. He didn’t even wait until he got back to the office, he did it in the goddamn parking lot. That’s what you call “eager”. In his testimony he admitted that he kept notes of his private meetings with Trump “from that point forward.”
Does that sound like the normal activities of dedicated public servant acting in behalf of the elected government or does it sound like someone who’s on an assignment to dig up as much dirt as possible on the target of a political smear campaign.
Will the chocolate ration now be increased from 250g to 200g?
Maybe string theory can help?
"because it doesn't believe the life support systems malfunctioned."
Maybe but it could one of those things that keep happening because the overall design is just too hacky, has fundamental problems and you really can't even debug it properly. Like those Toyota "Sudden Unintended Acceleration" events.
pilots being instructed to avoid the specific altitudes where their comrades ran short of breathable air
I don't know what to conclude from that, it sounds like the Linux nouveau driver behaviour.
The first thing about these hacks is that you must realize that there are no hacks.
It's another one of those "revelations" that will be forgotten soon, only for bigger "revelations" that will be forgotten soon to be issued in the next episode and even bigger "revelations" that will be forgotten soon to be revealed in the episode after that.
Pure Hollywood productions.
The desire of the Empire to go up against Russia is on the par with the desire of Wilhelmine Germany to go up against France. Afterwards, there is regret.

Yea, about that (but I posted that already)
you'd need a stunningly good reason to do it locally
Like, because you are suddenly just another 3rd world country, possibly even being bombed by the US for insubordination to their foreign policy goals.
When it gets down to it — talking trade balances here — once we've brain-drained all our technology into other countries, once things have evened out, they're making cars in Bolivia and microwave ovens in Tadzhikistan and selling them here — once our edge in natural resources has been made irrelevant by giant Hong Kong ships and dirigibles that can ship North Dakota all the way to New Zealand for a nickel — once the Invisible Hand has taken away all those historical inequities and smeared them out into a broad global layer of what a Pakistani brickmaker would consider to be prosperity — y'know what? There's only four things we do better than anyone else:
1) music 2) movies 3) microcode (software) 4) high-speed pizza delivery
So, okay, in that Neal Stepehenson quote, one would probably have to remove 1), 2) and 3). And who wants pizza?
No wait, there is still fintech. Ah, never mind.
Someone may have though that "Minimal Viable Product" means "compiles and can be shipped" as opposed to "solves core customer problems in a satisfactory way"
"If they're sitting at the computer....then it's not YOUR computer anymore."
How is that relevant?
If the GPS sats are clobbered by a Carrington event
These satellites are not known for trailing very long conductive loops, so I doubt this would even be a problem.
As for a Gamma Ray Burster, you will have to redecorate the whole shop in any case, not sure if the remaining 600 million years of biologically usable Earth will be sufficient though.
