It'll go further if you stick it in the Hyperloop.
The only people that 'hacked' the US election were the Democrats who had more than a finger on the scale in the primaries.
Frankly, if Russia can spend $100k on Facebook and affect an election where Hillary spent well over $1bn then good luck to them and the American voters deserve to be disenfranchised as they clearly cannot be trusted with important decisions.
"Tell me one country in the last 50 years, that ceased to exist , overnight and that had their currency made worthless ? There is none"
Apart from the Yugoslavian Dinar. And Soviet Roubles. And Czechoslovak koruna. And that's just in Europe.
2 minutes on wikipedia would stop you looking like a fool.
"Germany has already decreed that robot vehicles must be programmed to kill animals and destroy property before thinking of harming humans"
Get the practice in before turning on the humans.
"Are you sure?"
Yes/ They're very much against it.
Is that like my failed IT swap site computersexchange.com which got a surprising amount of traffic from Asia?
If you block port 80 does this matter?
If you keep screwing your education system to such a degree that the people get their news from an online BBS then you can have no complaints that some people might use that to spread discord in your country.
Also, are US citizens not more than capable of finding divisive subjects on their own without Russian help?
Law enforcement think using cash to pay for coffee is suspicious so it's no wonder they have concerns about cryptocurrency.
The authorities don't care whether they affect public or police behaviour, they just love the idea of having roving CCTV cameras linked to facial recognition software and all the other stuff we, the people paying for this dystopian nightmare, never asked for.
Or wait for lil Kim to do it for you.
God has already sorted us. We're just too dumb to have noticed. #TheGoodPlace
Hang on, I use my mobile to connect to my home computer which is permanently connected to my aws instance running a VPN which then connects to an azure server running tor... and they can still get me for ordering a hit on my annoying neighbour?
My phone only ever connects to a single IP address. How you gonna track me, euro-fuzz?
I've already changed my fingerprints, my retina and asked my mother to change her maiden name.
nanny state government have been expanding thought crimes for years.
You will conform dear citizen. Resistance is futile.
"do the journey between London and Edinburgh within 50 minutes"
The regular train could do it in 393m/125mph = a smidge over 3 hours if it didn't have to stop at stupid other places and slow down for other trains. Assuming the Hype-R-Loop has to stop, re-pressurize and depressurize to get going, how long will it take?
That's assuming they can get permission from landowners to build it above ground, keep cars from crashing into it and kids from puncturing it. Like all Virgin tubes, one prick will lead to a catastrophic collapse making it a worthless to those who like a smooth ride in safety.
"We are aware that Equifax has been criminally negligent in protecting personal details of people and are going to enforce new rules that any UK company sending details of citizens abroad are held liable for any losses incurred through that third party's negligence." Is what it should have said.
So we're going to ban fire in case anyone tries to burn evidence.
Maybe it's giving birth to a Jobs-approved sized iPhone?
I sure am glad the NSA (and GCHQ) keep these vulnerabilities secret rather than getting the hardware and software companies to patch their systems, makes me feel much more secure.
Should have gotten a job for HSBC then he could launder away consequence free.
I know, but you miss the point. If I don't watch BBC but do watch other live broadcasts I need to pay for the BBC, couldn't the same logic apply to the internet and iPlayer? i.e. I don't watch iPlayer but I do use other internet services so I should pay for iPlayer.
Since it covers iPlayer shouldn't we add the
tax license to all mobile and broadband subscriptions too?
By definition a computer EXACTLY the size of the universe IS able to model somewhat larger than just a few hundred electrons.
Strikes me that they may be good at maths, but they're pretty poor at logic. Might be all the quantum in their heads.
Humans make decisions then amend their programming based on the outcomes, usually without knowing that's what they're doing. Justification simply allows us to keep making the same mistakes over and over - i.e. it's a bug not a feature.
If we keep the wardrobe door open we could resolve global warming...
If you'd have managed to keep your opinion to under 140 charts maybe more people would have read it.
Now we can declare war on North AND South Korea, and maybe even Nambia, all in a single tweet.
It saves a click and reduces Google's ubiquity if you can type ssd.amazon into the browser rather than searching "ssd Amazon".
YMMV as to whether this is valuable or desirable.
Why not just pass a law making not writing a full confession illegal?
"He comes from London."
Because the correct response to bad speech is ... less speech? I'm sure that's what Madison, Paine and Jefferson were going for when they wrote the 1st Amendment.
What makes you think Arabic is a foreign language in the UK???
All variables in the program should be declared, GLOBALLY, before any code is written, otherwise it looks like you're making it up as you go along.
You gotta love [hate] COBOL.
Nothing wrong with forgetting...
Why wouldn't you want the government to know where every penny you spend goes? What are you trying to hide?
Why don't we see that many stories about container security, surely they're infinitely more pwnable than VMs?
Scammers can now do identity theft of 144m people and get a few billion claiming to be them in the class action lawsuit.
Is people with absolutely no understanding of economics.
The amount you pay will be exactly the same if the telco pays £15bn or £15. This is known as a sunk cost and they price things to maximise profit which is based on marginal costs and marginal revenue. Where you may have a point is that the money they splurged on spectrum may delay the rollout or investment in infrastructure as they have to borrow to pay for that, and that might mean market segregation where they can charge more where they initially roll it out to a few regions.
The list is useful when signing up new users (or existing users changing passwords) as you now have a list of compromised passwords that you can deny them the use of in real time. Having the list of hashes locally means you aren't sending data to an untrusted third party to check.
OTOH given SHA1 collisions it is possible that your hash might get flagged even though the password is unique and not compromised. Highly unlikely, but possible.
Can we now also get rid of the idiocy of Twitter, Uber, Solar Roadways, Self Filling Solar Water Bottles, Hyperloop and all the other nonsense that has never turned a profit and has no realistic prospect of doing so yet have gotten millions upon millions in funding, yet my ideas that would turn a profit in 6 months get nothing ... mutter, mutter, grumble, grumble.
Unless it does Octarine I'm out.
Then get drunk at the airport and accidentally put it in the fruit machine...
"the proposed law – introduced in May by Senators ... Dianne Feinstein (D‑CA)"
That's enough for me to be against it.
"Then somebody pointed out..."
With absolutely no empirical evidence. We (UK) make public policy based on feelings or some concept of 'common sense'. Policy-based evidence is not what I'm interested in.
I wish people here wouldn't go on about child abuse. The crime he is suspected of is having files on his computer which are images the government has decided are illegal. The files may be of children, they may even be of children being abused, but they could equally be photoshopped pictures, innocent pictures of children or none of the above. Whatever, there is nothing to suggest this guy is in any way involved in the abuse of children.
In the UK the 'illegal' pictures could be of cartoon children, or adults who look as if they may be under 18!
Of course the real crime is not doing exactly what authorities want you to do.
"Today, we made the difficult decision to terminate Barry Lynn,"
Terminate? Holy shit!
Footnotes! The best commentary on the insanity of life I've read. Unfortunately that requires a narrator and I don't like Stephen Fry right now, but he'd be perfect.
