Re: 60 bit "bytes" aka word.
CDC 6400 and 6600. A large amount of information could be stored in one word.
Then PDP-8s with 12 bit words. Radix-50.
After those they were all based on eight bit bytes.

Not really. Pharma is pushing drugs for profit without affecting health negatively. Why cure cancer when a palliative pill to hold cancer in check can reap a fortune over the rbalance of a lifetime. Profit margin is high.
Healthcare is insurance, hospitals, clinics, labs, healthcare professionals, etc. These run on tighter margins.
Pharma is a significant enough revenue/profit generator to justify its own category. The differential between salaries are significant between Pharma and Healthcare.
No publicly held company hires undocumented tech workers. Great security is and liability. They need documentation that the company followed accepted background check protocols.
What they are looking for is foreigners who are used to being treated as slaves by management. Tech skill is secondary to servitude.
If American Tech work was done under German work rules, American companies would not be going through the trouble to hire foreigners.
Think of as "After Birth of the Lord".
Anno Domini, "Year of the Lord['s birth]", was shorter. And avoided a messy afterbirth reference.
The fifties flowed into the "sixties" flowed into the seventies flowed into the eighties.
There is no precise point in time that cultural eras shifted from one to the next.
I, myself, do not associate Rubik's cubes with the seventies. Definitely eighties.
Arguing about zero or one being the first of a sequence. Was this ever an issue before Computers?
Use different VMs to separate general browsing from secure browsing.
My financial sites browser only connects to limited sites with certificate checks. No searches or random sites accesses are done on that VM.
1) the user has to belong to sudo group. For a single user linux system this should not be a problem, unless one of your alters is a malicious hacker and you don't have security policy that requires separate logins.
2) the /etc/sudoers file has to have NOPASSWD in it.
If you are running Linux and are concerned that you don't have to enter your password then use sudo to change #2 above. If you really don't trust yourself with sudo, then use Windows.
"could not tell him their plan to implement it and what consulting house would be partnering"
Which consulting house (Obama's CIO used "what" instead of "which") is the key to your success.
Those houses would be the consulting houses that put cash in the pockets of .gov bureaucrats and politicians.
"NSA has been subverting encryption since 2006,"
And this issue is never brought up when a bitcoin believer is promoting The Blockchain.
I remember when non secret level users were only allowed 64 bit encryption and even that tech could not be exported outside the USA. The idea was that the spooks could only break up to 64 bit.
At some point "someone" must have developed the tech to break 256 bit in close to real time and they no longer care about encryption.
Open source developer develops a hobbled Linux distro that runs only on Microsoft Windows.
And expects to be rewarded for the effort.
He should have pulled a Bill Gates and sold Microsoft a copy of Debian Linux. But then the OS dude's mother is not on the Board of Directors of Microsoft.
More images. Less text.
Then bemoan the lack of reading skills and habits.
A supplier's site, that I use, changed over to six items per page with large images and minimal text. Takes six pages to get through the over 30 items under a major category with no search box.
Then there's the bandwidth required to load the front page.
Two state parks in northern Kentucky along I-75.
"Big Bone Lick"
"Lick" is local word for a small stream.
The "Big Bone" refers to a dinosaur bone that was discovered by the stream.
Was fun to watch people, especially young women, when they saw the signs for the first time.
I know of one current blog where the triad "tit" anywhere within a comment will make the comment queue for moderation. "Constitution", "constituent", "titular", "title", all earn a timeout.
Scunthorp would probably trigger the same reaction.
AI, machine intelligence, so smart.
Here's an idea. De-stigmatize the natural human body. Remove the excitement of seeing something that is not supposed to be seen.
Male nipples are nonfunctional and okay to be seen. Female nipples are functional, nourishing life, and not to be seen.
This is a fine example of the limited capabilities of machine learning/intelligence. It cannot differentiate between cloth and flesh.
This will only encourage searching for the original images.
