Nope - they give them super expensive sugar pills, which work every time.

Re: >> Antibiotics for flu?
Note, your ex-better half probably got prescribed placebos instead of anti-biotics. Doctors and pharmacists know how to handle people who self diagnose and insist on medication.
Well, if you have an 8 inch floppy, then 'Insert Carefully' will not really help.
Better spam filters
The new craptags will make it much easier and reliable to filter out email spam.
Well, if your video playback is already stuttering, then it will be stuttering more and if it was smooth before, then it may start stuttering after. Also, your electricity bill will be a little higher.
The smell of police food? That explains why he is still stuck up.
Re: Scrambled timeline, anyone?
Have you ever tried to edit a document on a time share system over a 300 baud modem?
The worst was when you accidentally reached the bottom right corner and the screen scrolled up. All you could do then, was sigh and get some more coffee.
I learned programming in Fortran on a Sperry Univac using punch cards. I honestly cannot say it is a fond memory. Working with old tech was just as frustrating as working with modern tech!
Now, please get off my lawn, eh.
On my own web site, Windows is about 40%, Mac about 10% and about 50% is Linux, meaning that UNIX-ish is at 60% share, which is 50% more than the Windows 40%.
Re: Actually, NASA has the code.
Well, a dead bird can be very dangerous: https://globalnews.ca/news/4004192/dead-canada-goose-knocks-hunter-unconscious/
Re: Need help, NASA?
OK, so that is why the satellite reboots every 49.5 days!

Hey, you! Get offa my cloud!
Re: How do we survive?
Baby pictures on cans... I take it that you haven’t seen an African Muti shop.
Re: Reminds me of a story
Pong is very old. It goes back to about 1975, so more like 40 years.
Re: At the other end of the spectrum
Ayup - it is all Algol to me...
Bear in mind that it is today’s senior crowd who invented TVs, computers and space ships and actually went to the moon also.
Stop us if you've heard this one before: Tokyo crypto-cash exchange 'hacked' for half a billion bucks
O'l Occam tells me they are claiming "Hackers Stole My Homework! (TM)" in a bid to confuse matters, while they try to run away with the loot.
Re: Inevitable Consequence
The funniest thing is when the password field limits the characters that can be used, but the questions do not. The obvious improvement then is to treat all these fields as random passwords stored in KeepassX.
If you run Win10 in a VM with host only networking, then the data leaks are not a problem.
Re: Go Trump Go.
Silly you. You should have taught him the Remark command 'rm'.
Re: i am wondering about unintended consequences
Indian Business Machines? Why, they are based in India. What is your problem?
Re: so Desperation
It is all ALGOL to me.
Why do they waste their time investigating toy crashes?
Re: It's too Black and White
Err... you mean the non-killer app.
If they don't back date the law, it won't be much use.
So, interest declined from 60000 to 64000...
That seems like disk drive size mathematics.
W0t? Nobody even alluded that it is all Trump's fault?
This must be the only forum on the intertubes with no US Liberal readers.
I made my own 'NAS' from a Raspberry Pi and a couple of flash memory sticks in about 20 minutes. For any self respecting geek, there is no reason to use off the shelf exploit kits.
Hmm, is this the sister of the EEE PC lady?
Re: mining efficiency
Sure, but if you get 100 million other people mining bitcoin on your behalf...
Re: VPN use
Well, they must have port 25, 53, 80 and 443 open, so just run your own VPN or Socks Proxy on one of these unblockable ports.
Well, fortunately it wasn't Celine Dion.
Re: Mixed signals on CPU's
I think an Intel 8080 processor running MSDOS 6.2 at 500 kHz should be fine.
Maybe enlisting the ME as a co-processor for I/O can speed the chips up again.
It's OK, the Prez Jimmy Carter sub can fix the cables again and bypass the Rusky taps with Merrican taps.
Occam's Razor tells me it was simply the owners of NiceHash that ran off with the cash.
Hell's Bells, Highway to Hell, Bat out of Hell...
She sounds batty all right.
If one considers that the noxious NOX emissions from high compression ratio diesels actually kills people, then they are getting off lightly.
Re: how is assembler outdated and by what?
What tool set? In those days we assembled the code by hand and entered the hex code into an EPROM programmer directly.
Re: RE: Kenny
"potatoes in the freezer" - Wow, man, you don't need to torture them with frozen potatoes. A room temperature coconut will do fine.

Tip a Canoe County
So, these people cannot even canoe, nevermind drive. That makes the whole survey a little bit suspicious, doesn't it?
Re: Linus Torvalds is not a Security Expert
There are lots of critical systems using various embedded Linux kernels. Linux is very popular in military, medical and industrial systems. Anyone who is interested in military aerospace embedded work, have to learn Linux. I can tell you, but then I'll have to shoot you...
Re: Aircraft Engine Example
I got news for you: Linux is used in many airplanes, satellites, UAVs and missiles.
Aircraft Engine Example
I explain these issues with a simple aircraft engine example:
If the engine controller of single engine plane encounters an anomaly, it cannot simply throw an exception and shut down.
Linux is used in embedded systems and there are numerous examples like the above. The OS has to be resilient and carry on working regardless of most/all errors.
"Shape memory" - We used to call it Spring Steel. Kids, these days...
Now, get off my lawn!
How many millions of pounds of equipment did they destroy in the process and was it really worth it?
Hmm, I haven't ever seen anybody actually use inflight internet - people don't want to pay for it.
The reason people don't want to pay for it, is because it is ridiculously expensive and people don't expect it to work well enough to be worth paying anything for.
Well, the guy is sick alright. Whether he is sikh or muslim, is another matter.
Pics, or it is fake news.
Re: This is when I know I'm getting old...
"Old is when you remember the invention of the 8" floppy."
Hah, kids, these days - bring me my Winchester... no, not the 38-40!
