This is why we can't have nice things!
So the war could have been shortened by dropping battalions of management consultants and marketing executives to persuade the Germans to take a customer focussed agile manufacturing process - where the military changes their mind all the time and the kit is delivered late, obsolete and in much smaller numbers?
Not, it was over very much earlier.
Check out this infographic
Who the heck designed a system that can't cope with connection loss? These things aren't going to be working in an idealised lab, but out in the field where things break.
I think the pervasiveness of this kind of sophomoric crap in commercial (and also open-source systems cough) now has progressed to the point where it is acceptable to see it in high-reliability systems.
(The whole RPC paradigm is basically a testament to connection optimism in the service of self-serving convenience)
Any notion that dullards future insurgents could get into the system, let alone ready that data is quite absurd.
Yup. You would need a deprogrammed protocol droid for that.

What do Chinese have to do with any of this?

I actually misread this as "body fluid" at first. Weird.
I agree with the irate Saker that Trump will have his hands really full and no time to worry about cybersecurity. He better set up a hit squad stat.
First, and this is the really crucial part, there is more than enough here [in the CNN-alleged Trumpdump / golden shower kompromat] to impeach Trump on numerous grounds both political and legal. Let me repeat again – this is an attempt at removing Donald Trump from the White House. This is a political coup d’etat....
All of the above further confirms to me what I have been saying over the past weeks: if Trump ever makes it into the White House (I write ‘if’ because I think that the Neocons are perfectly capable of assassinating him), his first priority should be to ruthlessly crack down as hard as he legally can against those in the US “deep state” (which very much includes the media) who have now declared war on him. I am sorry to say that, but it will be either him or them – one of the parties here will be crushed.
[Sidebar: to those who wonder what I mean by “crackdown” I will summarize here what I wrote elsewhere: the best way to do that is to nominate a hyper-loyal and determined FBI director and instruct him to go after all the enemies of Trump by investigating them on charge of corruption, abuse of power, conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and all the other types of behavior which have gone on forever in Congress, the intelligence community, the banking world and the media. Deal with the Neocons like Putin did with the Russian oligarchs or how the USA dealt with Al Capone – get them on tax evasion. There is no need to open Gulags or shoot people when you can get them all on what is their normal daily behavior :-)]
No surprises here.
Well, they are going after their stray scientists from time to time... especially those with links to China.
(Recently there has been this case of complete stupidiy where consulting for a civilian nuke outfit running a Westinghouse unit in China is construed as "making plutonium for a foreign power". I guess there is some prosecutor looking for a way upwards the ladder.)
Obama, depositing raw sewage out of spite like a little scorned girl.
(Well, I could imagine a memo on his desk saying "You do this or no lucrative speaking occasions for you, Mr. Soon-Ex-President", and he has known how his bread is buttered since his selection at the national convention way back when.)
£2 for a cup of coffee?
Remember when £2 could buy you a house outside of London??

It also means we are the bubble top.
Smartphones are used for looking busy and standoffish in public spaces.
Yeah, but quite a lot of is about things you don't hear about on DW and France24, whereas the latter dish the daily Soma about how we are Good In Syria, Ukraine is on the freedom train, our Politictactoeicians are glorious (especially Merkel), Trump is 100% pig disgusting and Putin is in every router and underneath children's bed.
Further attacks against the State Administration of Railway Transport left Ukrainians unable to purchase rail tickets and delayed payments when the Treasury and Pension Fund was compromised
Railways down and the Pension Fund empty? A daily occurrence in France.
Sounds like someone was playing "Alien Isolation: Corporate Lockdown" for real.

Count me in as long as the NEW MESSIAH is not a Liberal Interventionist Multicultural Goodthink Fetish, has Schwarzenegger Spine, imposes a flat tax, trashes PC nasties and BLMers and cleans up leftofascist parliamentarian geezers and political TLAs civil serpents with a shotgun while playing "I can't get no satisfaction" on a boombox, loudly.
Any civilization in the neighborhood will not be amused then?
A good time to review what went down:
Roland L. Trope, Trope and Schramm LLP
Eugene K. Ressler, US Military Academy Emeritus Faculty
After a year of denials, Volkswagen admitted in September 2015 that multiple makes and models of its diesel vehicles contained defeat device software. The decisions leading to “Dieselgate” involved a corruption of engineering ethics that the profession ought to address.
But now I will go with my obviously-underage sexy french comic onto public transport just to piss people off.
Where is my dirty coat. Ah here it is.
I demand that girls be kept under burkas between the age of 0 and 20, just to be on the safe side and no pictures may be taken.
Also, please just apply "A ark" to each and every psychologist, humanity can do without those quacks.
When one thinks that meanwhile highly places people can take trips on the "Lolita Express" and this is then quietly under-rugged ... it's pretty bad.
Young man, why you look so appalled.
I said, young man, better get used to it now.
I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new age
There's no need to read the EULA.
Young man, there's naught you can do.

Probably cheaper to just set up a competitor.
Hmmmm... plugins, browser bars, branded browsers, on-desktop crapware, "Portals" and the '"Microsoft" Network'.
Just thinking about it makes me lock and load.

Generally an indicator of Good Stuff in PC-infected 21st century politics and court economics.
In science, the "crank alerts" have to go on if mass appeal paperbacks and "imma being suppressed" books are hitting the airport shelves before peer-reviewed papers show up in the journals.
OTOH, the "mainstream" itself may be crank and in need of attitude readjustment as is the case with the current "multiverse" retardation bandwagon whereby meangingless drivel hidden underneath integral signs just doesn't stop. It must be the management equivalent of "avoid the hard work while still moving up" via memo control, fawning peacock meetings and fad pursuits.
That's easy and happens currently with the Moon.
The Moon transforms the plastic Earth into an ellipsoid (mostly visible through tides).
The Earth rotates faster than the Moon orbits around Earth.
The ellipsoid bulge is thus always "ahead" of the Moon.
This slows the angular momentum (rotation) of the Earth.
Conversely, this increases the angular momentum (orbit speed) of the Moon.
A faster Moon moves out.
Continue until Moon orbit corresponds to Earth rotation.
I feel the blood of the mighty will soon run in the streets again (or was it of patriots? I don't know any longer over all the PC indoc)

You missed the icon here.
Nothing beats Reverse Robin Hood operations sold by Ministry-of-Truth propaganda-induced moral panic.
"may have kept our children and loved ones free from being introduced to drugs."
It may also have kept levels of alien anal probing low, who knows?
Are the US the only ones still insisting on this?
Between wild accusations of "violations" of this or that because Iran has a few liters of heavy water too many that they are supposed to get rid of by selling to the US who won't buy because, you know, sanctions....
The manufacturing part is completely roboticized, I hope you are not hoping for "jobs".
> The modern obsession with fictional zombies is mostly just an allegory
Yeah, this reminds me of this article from 2012: "Obsessed With the Undead". Time flies...
On Halloween, an army of the undead will be unleashed upon Mission Bay off the coast of San Diego. U.S. soldiers, Marines, special forces, police and emergency responders will face the challenge of a lifetime as the flesh-eating scourge threatens to devour their ranks — literally.
Of course it’s not real. This is a five-day “counterterrorism summit,” but we’ll just refer to it as yet another — albeit extremely creative — government boondoggle. Starting this week, more than 1,000 people participating on the taxpayers’ dime will get to break away for five days from the daily grind and the Xbox 360 to play Resident Evil zombie hunter on a 44-acre reserve (luxury resort) blown out with “immersive Hollywood sets” that feature everything from authentic looking villages to “pirate havens” and hospitals soon to be filled with ill-fated good guys suffering from ersatz bite wounds.
Move over, George Romero. No one can recreate the over-the-top zombie apocalypse like a private security firm (in this case, Halo Corporation, a beltway bandit operation formed by ex-special operations and intelligence agents) flush with government contracts and corporate sponsorships, and access to the best weaponry, surveillance gear and other technological wizardry the post-9/11 paranoid domestic security state can buy.
World War Z is an implicit condemnation of the post-9/11 Bush Administration, but easily a metaphor, too, for the self-destructive politics pulling at the levers of American power today.
Political hubris in Brooks’ “fictional” Washington so blinds the leadership at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue that when honesty and clarity are needed the most, the White House stonewalls, stalls and sacrifices time and lives before finally setting a straight course for survival. For millions in World War Z, it is too late.
Though there are as many disquisitions on the subject as there are movies, books and television series, it’s no stretch to suggest that this mistrust of government ultimately fuels our overall fascination for the undead. Sadly, we could imagine a government that causes and covers up toxic spills, dangerous pandemics or even zombie outbreaks. After a decade of real war, our sense of security and control has eroded so sharply and in so many ways we hardly believe anything the government says, ever.
> The nearest Trump rally.
I expected this kind of "response".
More and more people seem to be infected by Trump Derangement Syndrome, which is worse than Bush Derangement Syndrome or Obama Rainbow Pony Syndrome. Hopefully this will burn itself out or will have to activate the FEMA trailers.
Ebola is only about 50% fatal.
AFAIK it's higher and you will only survive if you are under medical supervision anyway.
I case of outbreak, those wards will be full, fast.
I spite of Mr. AO.'s uncalled-for character assassination only comparable to a liberal talking about Trump, I'm totally rooting for this.
Hillary, plz go.
Your reflexes are good.
Myself, I verified whether the URL was referenced more than once before accessing and still the nagging thought remains that it would be a good vector.
Yes, there is EcmaScript, but at least google docs stuff cannot run macro viruses in your browser (I think) so there is that. Anyway, QubesOS when??
As if that were hard in cryptoshit.
If there is no code to send out the keys and there is no code to store the keys, you know what's up.
Meanwhile, I have prepared a funding request for means of remotely controlling an enemy's oxygen provision, aka. "force choke". I need to profit from the NATO/mandatory 5% of GDP military spending. The time is now!
There is a 100% guarantee to get the contract if an italian firm is involved.
> will eventually end up paying the full cost twice they buy the darn thing.
Also, I wonder against what or who this is supposed to be used. It's a bit dear to blow up Iranian speedboats.
In any naval engagement of the future I see, there are no survivable surface ships.
But what if this is a gamma-ray laser?
