Neither, everyone's reading it wrong.

Surely, that would make it the Inter-National Crime Agency.
BTW, does anyone else immediately think "Oh, the National Crime Agency, must be responsible for all the crimes committed then."
According to a certain IBM gentleman, RHEL was pronounced R-Hell.
He soon stopped when i started taking about I-Bum
As it lives in a kennel on a barge designed to catch falling flaming rockets I would have thought that 'Screw Loose' from The Player of Games would fit admirably.
It's obvious. The article didn't mention the sex of the women's partners. Get yourself in a nice Menage a Trois and only participate occasionally. Satisfaction and long life all round :-)
If you bothered to read the linked article -
"According to court documents obtained by WLWT, a cardiologist told police that those actions were "highly improbable" because of Compton's medical condition.
Police sought to prove that by collecting electronic data stored in Compton's electronic heart device. They wanted to know Compton's heart rate, pacer demand and cardiac rhythms before, during and after the fire."
So, no, the doctor didn't say 'he was too unfit to survive' just his story was improbable given his existing condition. The log from his implant proved it.

The ostensibly 'Free World' has "over reaching government" in spades!
I would read it, but as I run an Ad Blocker, Wired has decided not to show me anything past the first screen.
Good post, but a couple of common misconceptions which only become apparent when actually using the weapons in question.
Matchlocks are actually *more* reliable in the rain (and generally) than flintlocks, the match can be kept in a specially designed cover and only brought out immediately before using, whereas the frizzen (the case hardened steel face that the flint strikes to generate the sparks) on the flintlock is always exposed to the weather. Additionally, good quality match (actually made by soaking cord in saltpetre) burns pretty hot, so the main issue is 'keeping your powder dry' :-) The main problem with flintlocks is that you are hoping that 1, enough sparks are produced and 2. they end up in the priming powder. Wheellocks are better in this respect, as they produce a *lot* more sparks, however, as you state, they need to be 'spanned' regularly. Flintlocks offered no quicker rate of fire, as they were still muzzle loading. The use of cartridges could speed up the loading process somewhat, but the black powder was issued loose, requiring the cartridges to be made up in advance..
The idea of 'massed charges' of Pikemen is inaccurate. Pike formations are fairly cumbersome and, as such, trying to move at speed negates the effectiveness as they quickly become disorganised. In reality, the 'Press of Pike' usually happened fairly late on in a battle, when your enemy was either short of powder or had his nerve severely rattled by the cavalry if they used the more modern Swedish charge rather than the earlier tactic of riding in Caracole. All this relates to the early to mid 17thC, both during the '30 Years War' on the continent and the 'War of the Three Kingdoms (AKA English Civil War) here in Blighty.
@ AC "Where is your pull request"
Is this one categorized under 3. other or israel_hands' "wanking"?
My partner owns a PSC of which she is the only employee.
Unfortunately, she is seriously considering giving it all up.
Due to the recent changes, she can no longer claim the Ca £450/month extra accommodation cost (legitimate business expense, she's working away from home) nor her weekend trips home. This is due to the Tories deciding that as an employee wouldn't get it, nor should she (despite the fact that an employee wouldn't live 200 Miles from their place of work).
Add to that the fact that she is a Locum with the NHS and the Tories have introduced 2 caps to the pay, she now probably takes home less than an employee of the same level!
This to me has less to do with levelling the playing field and more to do with screwing more money out of the Little Guys.
The only evidence of a difference so far is that, apparently, Teresa (no H) has only screwed 13 people at once.
I think you'll find that was a Hercules
It might be an old kernel version, but don't forget Red Hat backports all the improvements from later kernels into their stable one.
Using Linux (RHEL6) and Firefox, if I highlight the code, then middle click to paste I see "not evil" both on the command line and in Vim, if I use KNotes and create a new note from the clipboard I get 'evil'
IT Ops of course. Once the developer has pushed it they'll be chasing the latest shiny bauble and will have lost all interest.
No, but you *are* the only one narcissistic enough to join Beautiful People

Oh, sorry, I thought you said Elvish!
Cue cheap dig at OSS.
If you actually read the document, they were looking mainly at CSS breaches. They will run on IIS as well you know.
What we need is an app to *add* beards to all the baby-faced boys who can't grow a decent one like mine!
Pirates, because they had beards as well (Apart from Rachel Wall, obviously)
"so you can be convicted because of your morals now?"
You always could if your morals didn't match those that the state should be enforced.
Let's not forget, people like Alan Turing were only 'immoral' in the narrow view of 1950's UK society, nothing he did which pertained to his sexuality actually harmed anybody.
Likewise the early UK advocates for returning women's suffrage were only 'immoral' in the sight of the powers that be in demanding votes for women

The article has everyone sitting around swigging Baileys and sucking lemons and you pick on *that*?
(Incidentally, citrus juice is a sure fire way to curdle cream based liqueurs)
They wouldn't even let me use my *real* name. For some reason, they seemed to think that Santa might be fake!
Per Second? You're going for a ridiculously small unit there.
Unless you don't want to be able to use the femtotumbleweed once in a while, I would suggest per hour instead.
They tried, but he just stood there with his fingers in his ears going 'La,La,La'
Has he been perusing the Laminated Book of Dreams?
I take it then that you aren't paying anything for your Linux installations, whilst comparing them to your Windows installations which you do pay for. We use RHEL, which is designed for businesses, hence the Enterprise in the name. We have 600 Linux desktops spread across a number of sites and they are pretty stable thanks. RHEL6 was released 2010 and is due to go into Extended Support in 2020.
Oh, Cromwell eh? Britain's first Military Dictator doing exactly what Charles 1 was censured for doing, bringing armed troops into Parliament.
Get off a UK site and crawl back under your rock.
The *only* 'Muslim threat to this country' is the one that has been generated by the bombing of civilians carried out under the 'War on Terror' TM, courtesy of the US Right Wing Idiots.
Trump is quite capable of ruining the US all on his own.
Attitudes like yours seem to match rather well with the cletus analogy offered earlier.
How's your banjo playing?
How do you manage to dodge the mountain of crap from Sky, BT, Talk Talk etc.?
As H(C)rackers, I'd have thought the likes of the Styx Brothers were a more obvious choice :-)
Core hours between 10-15 seems like bollocks as well.
Oh and don't forget non existent paid time off to prepare your cv for the next job and interviews.
Fucking retarded Daily Mail reader more like!
Defense, as in defending Murica's "right" to impose their retarded values globally?
No, I'm not describing Lester, merely offering the utterance up for public perusal
Whilst I agree this is a pretty serious flaw, I hardly think it's appropriate to link it to the Certificate screwups as the article did. After all, HBOS et al had absolutely no control over that
I call bullshit. Mellanox cards are specifically designed to *not* use the kernel
Dell DRAC requires the IcedTeaWeb plugin in order to launch the remote console. We use this extensively here at work, along with VMWare plugins.
I think that Red Hat will have to either port Firefox, or start supporting another browser as we have 600+ Linux desktops for Scientists and support staff.

"Unfortunately, our obsession with CO2 emissions has led to an explosion in demand for diesel-engined cars (in this country at least)."
A rather simplistic view of diesel cars in this country (assuming you mean the UK).
I think you might find that a lot of people (myself included) with older diesel cars *don't* see any benefit in VED, as they are assessed as PLG (one of the highest rates). Instead, they opt for diesels for the fact that they are relatively bullet-proof engines, which will easily last for over 200K miles and give far superior day-today MPG returns that petrol engines, especially in larger MPV's doing high mileage with significant load.
China has already landed a rover on the Moon, the third nation to do so after Russia and the USA.
