I'm with you on this. My Asus Transformer is a fantastic little machine to use and does just about evrything I need. I used it as my main machine (by length of time) until I resurrected my old laptop with Linux. I found myself wishing that the Asus had a larger screen and keyboard.
"Some flaws, including nasty ones, have persisted for years due in part to contractors having a four-year reprieve in 2010 from addressing any security flaws while the station was repurposed from a research project to the JPSS."
The contractors who fitted my double glazing made a total mess of the window for the small bedroom, it leaks rain and the wind blows through it. I don't expect them to fix it for a while because I'm trying to repurpose that room for a personal study and storage room.
This particular request may have been craftily designed so that any reasonable court would find that there is no threat to security in requiring GCHQ to reveal the information. It's a long term 'thin end of the wedge' tactic to set a precedent.
Next: an FOI request for the average number of miles traveled by GCHQ employees on 'company business', broken down by air/train/car miles, in order to determine if they are being responsible about carbon emissions.
There may be laws in China but from what I've read the enforcement of the law against you depends on how well connected you are and how well connected your 'adversary' may be. This study needs some case examples.
Does anyone have personal experience or good information about strength and integrity of enforcement in various countries?
How about a 'family' chess set where the King/Queen are Dad/Mum and favourite aunts and uncles are knight, bishop and rook. Cousins and siblings can be individual pawns; or whatever. I'm sure there are some people who would pay serious money if the end result was of good technical quality.
I just had a look at that judgement - it was about low flying military aircraft in 'navigable airspace' under the 'minimum safe altitude'. Causby was claiming damages for injury to livestock due to intense stress on them. The court determined that the government had taken an 'easement', a property right defined in law, which they have the power to do but which they must pay compensation for. That judgement would not seem to apply to this situation on a variety of counts.
 Tom beat me to it.
The principles of logical thought, planning and abstract construction could easily be taught using BASIC and are in fact a necessity to get most BASIC programs working eventually. The fault finding and bug hunting skills would quickly follow on from the children's early attempts; with adequate teacher guidance of course. All this would give children a regular 'slap in the face', which is what they need to get used to if they want to function in the adult coding world.
You get an upvote from me.
... you can put a bit of cold water into the pot before you pour freshly boiled water into it. This is how I make coffee and various teas. My kettle cost £10 about 10 years ago and if it breaks I can walk to the shop and buy a comparable replacement. I'm even capable of bringing water to 100degC in a pan on a cooker if all else fails.
This may be an unintentionally good tactic for ISIS and any others who switch to using anonymous services. Governements, of many different shades, would jump on that activity as a good reason to ban such services and label any user as a terrorist sympathiser. The admins (and podmins) of such services would then be 'terrorist enablers' and the general public would be glad to see them hunted down and put out of operation. The screws would tighten even more on our freedoms of movement and expression, hence leading to greater dissatisfaction in society.
