Or the Paris 1968 variant: half petrol, half sulfuric acid. Eats away marble and circuitboards.
As long as my Primus® burner does not react to the command FIRE, I am safe.
May be, John Mcaffee was born in 1945. His great-great grandfather was born four generations earlier. So the old man was between 47 and over 87 years old when the Titanic went down. BTW, my grandfather - no the other one - invested in Russian railway shares ....
The solution is evident. When a device with a fixed username / password, like user/12345, rolls from the belt or better at the final acceptance test, it is hooked up to a computer that logs in, sets username and password to a random value and prints a label. This should than be enforced by law to convince the beancounters of the world.
The device can than be marketed as "Now with improved security bla bla bla".
Having sex by candle light is much more fun and for the time being a private thing.
Whereas almost all Ponzi schemes finally give only work to prison wardens, this one also gave work to a team of German academics.
that medical doctors do not trust the output of a computer-diagnosis (by AI or otherwise), if the result is computed within 30 seconds. So if necessary software engineers inserted a delay.
In an other context I once wrote a Monte Carlo optimization which I let run on a SGI server for 30 seconds before the result was broadcast on public television.
May be Rich 11 can take inspiration from my recipe for a safe nuclear powerstation. Encase it in a concrete dome with a radius such that the energy required to build it equals the total output of the powerstation during its lifetime.
In that case at 235M X 35M we really don't want to upset the
owners users. FTFY.
it is not unusual if you point at a brandnew product on show at the IBC and ask whether you can buy it and what it will cost, panic will break out because it is only a (working) prototype. BTW the IBC and funerals are the only venues I visit with suit and (normal resp. black) tie. It helps to get answers.
Mine is the one with the inflatable tank in the pocket.
may begin a war at his pleasure, but cannot so finish it. Niccolò Machiavelli, The Discourses, Second Book, Ch. X (AD 1531).
A08155 Summary: Establishes the right of privacy and the right of publicity for both living and deceased individuals; provides that an individual's persona is the personal property of the individual and is freely transferable and descendible; provides for the registration with the department of state of such rights of a deceased individual; and that the use of a digital replica for purposes of trade within an expressive work shall be a violation.
Good heavens, do these people not value fine eighteen century Japanese erotic prints? NSFW
Dutch Rijkswaterstaat designed sophisticated crash cushions called RIMOBs in the 1980s. They are pre-deformed iron tubes which collapse like an harmonica on impact. At the time we were involved in making high-speed films of crash tests and I remember that my manager had a compressed RIMOB tube on his window-ledge which looked like a piece of abstract art. These and simular infrastructure saved many lives.
those animal-righters should have themselves infected with malaria or an other Plasmodium species a.s.a.p., because that is the only way to make millions of these parasites happy and let them have sex.
No whois server is known for this kind of object.

@horriblicious: The title of Ch. 3 of Jeffrey Carr's Inside Cyber Warfare PDF is The Legal Status of Cyber Warefare. It mentions
Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaties
The Antarctic Treaty System and Space Law
The Law of Armed Conflict
Moreover we have the Geneva Conventions.
To see Zuck as a reincarnation of Caligula is an insult to the Emperor.May be he is rather a reincarnation of Cesare Borgia.
A new Caligula will have his slaves dig at sites clearly marked as Nuclear waste burial site. No do dig here!.
People with normal vision can see the Haidinger figures. Even the degree of polarization of the blue sky 90° from the Sun is enough to see it, if you know what to look for.
Re orientation in general:
Alice asked the Cheshire Cat "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" "That dependes a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat. "I don't much care where --" said Alice. "Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat. "--so long as I get somewhere," Alice added. "Oh, you 're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."
@AC: A five sided/pointed shape is in fact very easy to make. Learned that in kindergarten.
In the Stalin era the family of executed political prisoners got an invoice for the bullets used by the firing squad. Although it was only a few rubles, it was an humiliation.
I 'll drink to that.

No Boffins? This must be fake news or it is ....
Re: I'd suggest banning the Mercer family from any oxygen use.
You are not suggesting a few mg of Novichok, are you? Naughty, naughty!
BTW what is that Facebook thing they are writing about, I never visited their website.
When Picasso lived in Paris shortly after 1900 he was too poor to pay his restaurant bills. But his talent was recognized and on several occasions he took a 5 Francs note, scribbled on it, signed it and the value jumped to 50 Francs, enough to pay the waiter. If it would survive to the present day it could be auctioned for millions even if it had accummulated a thick layer of shit.
AFAIR I changed the Desktop Background to a nerve-relaxing darkgreen with tiles showing in black I hate Microsoft - I hate Microsoft - I hate Microsoft in five-pixel high microfont for every Microsoft Windows® PC where I could do that.
MS gave me always the feeling I had only a teaspoon to hammer a nail in a wall, where UX gave me a toolkit with the lightest and most elegant tools to a sledgehammer.
That you are paranoid does not mean they are not out to get you.
On the other hand, after three days without coding, life becomes meaningless.
Dave 126 reminds me that I had for years a chromium-plated mouse treadmill on my desk. AFAIR, I finally donated it to the owner of a hamster in need of some exercise.
(ABS) dissolved in acetone makes excellent glue or thick paste. It hardens to the air. Use titanium sheet as non-sticking frame. Just saying.
And even in the laboratory you 'll probably only be able to detect a anaesthetized white rabbit, not a black cat.
where you have full control over the external light sources, non line of sight imaging might well work, but not in the real sunlit world.
Physical access is total control.
Mine is the one with the Skandia T20 in the pocket.
An intimate friend of Faraday once described to me how, when Faraday was endeavouring to explain to Gladstone and several others an important new discovery in science Gladstone's only commentary was 'but, after all, what use is it?" 'Why, sir,' replied Faraday, 'there is every probability that you will soon be able to tax it!'"

Some twenty years ago a not too bright colleague deleted a file on his Irix workstation. He downloaded from a Russian website a program that was supposed to undelete files on a UNIX system, but in fact was malware. It took our service department several days to restore some order. Fortunately the damage was restricted to this one machine and we mocked our colleague with the story for a long time.
