What you're describing is a sometimes hidden form of the "Not Invented Here" problem, where some deficit in a working software stack is discarded for theoretical, not production reasons. In this case, it can be guaranteed to be unstable because it would replace whatever production grade audio tool is already working with one written in house, requiring maintenance, and _likely vulnerable to the same SELinux problems_.
> Telomere breakdown, and cell deterioration is one of our biggest issues
And if we stopped entropy, cell detioration would not occur. It's about as likely, I'm afraid. Telomeres are a molecular _answer_ to DNA deterioration, preenting the connection of one DNA molecule to another at the end points. And some types of system damage are cumulative, especially since scar tissue accumulates and regrowth of neural tissue has never been mastered.
I remember these designs. They absolutely stripped the tread off the rear wheels within a few hundred miles of using them, and kept the local bike shops in serious business replacing wheels. Not tires: the wheels.
Federal offices are merely an example. I know businesses that absolutely refuse to put their mailing address or the location of their offices or their business office telephone number on their website or in local telephone listings, to avoid physical spam or having angry customers show up at their door. And in the business world, just try to find the street address of the ISP data centers near you.
Google Maps has been a reliable way for me to actually _find_ the data center I need to visit, when the staff of the company I'm dealing with don't know the street address, and the IT person is in the data center and their cell phone can't work from inside there.
I'm afraid that I was unclear. Worrying about how this will hide valid "NXDOMAIN" results is pointless, since thoe have already been hijacked by many ISP's DNS proxy servers and instead return the ISP's desired advertising page. They can also be redirected to far, far more dangerous services, sich as Phishing websites or mail servers to accept misaddressed email.
It's spelled NXDOMAIN, by the way.
NXDOMAIN has not been a reliable response for invalid DNS queries for roughly 15 years. Look into the history of the "*.com" DNS entry in Verisign's root servers for the
Given that the data has _already_ been corrupted, this seems a reasonable attempt to broaden what is now done with "example.com". It also has the benefit that it's not auto-activated in default Kerberos configurations, a bit of behavior that genuinely alarms me in most default Kerberos setups and which few configuration tools have the ability to remove.
Airplanes do not normally float in a medium of highly corrosive saltwater. And they can usually go _around_ storms, or land when the weather gets excessively dangerous. And even good quality, powerful engines need regular hand-on maintenance over the course of a 30 day trip.
> You opt for "married men make better performers"
Please: I didn't say that. It affects the role. For example, married men may be unwilling to perform 80 hour work weeks at crunch time. Being older, and willing to object to abusive contracts or work hours, certainly affects _my_ work performance. And my age is correlated with my work experience.
What I'm saying is that it's unrealistic, and unreasonable, to say these factors don't _affect_ work performance. In soome cases, they may _improve_ work performance! It depends on the situation and the role.
My point is that can it can _affect_ job performance, just as age, gender, religion, nationality, size, weight, skin color, and marital status can do so. The effects can be modest, and are often legislatively barred from affecting hiring. But to pretend that they are not factors, or that they do not alter people's chances of behing hired or affect evaluations of performance is disingenuous.
And let's be clear: many people consider "icky power differentials" to be attractive, both for the more powerful person to enjoy the power, and for the less powerful person to enjoy the attention of a more successful or powerful person. It can be wildly abused, but it's been common practice throughout human history. Ignoring it won't prevent it.
> Religion co-opted marriage and turned it into a religious thing millennia ago
Religions have been involved in major life events throughout the history of civilization. Can you point to any history or culture in which marriage, like birth and death, was +not+ treated as a religious matter? I suspect that any culture which handled marriage as a purely civil issue would integrate religion into it very, very quickly.
Actually, like being white, male, young, married, Christian, or born in the USA, it can certainly affect job performance. Being a member of the "power" ethnic or social jobs can certainly affect political power and perceived acceptability a social and political effect. But most relevant for job performance is the likelihood of being married, and having children, which also affect work availability and available weekly work hours. Then look at the number of business and political leaders who do _not_ have a spouse who takes care of their home and their children. And do _not_ be shocked that the possibility of dating, of or sexual interaction, effects the work place. And anytime there's a possible sexual interaction with a superior or a subordinate, it effects the work relationship.
That said, I'm delighted that we're more accepting of different lifestyles than we were at the start of my career. Let's just not ignore the direct effects of marriage, and of children, on work performance because they remain quite profound. Schedule a major product release for Christmas, Valentine's Day, or for graduation day and see who can do the work if you think it's irrelevant.
There is a great deal of science, and public policy, that would benefit from public exposure. But medical and sociological research benefits from the privacy of the subject, who then feel more free to be truthful. The same is true of political survey data, and "anonymizing" it can be a lengthy, expensive, and uncertain process, especially when coupled with various metadata that is being collected with the experiments or in parallel with it. It can also be very expensive to make public, even without privacy issues, because transforming it from obsolete media and making it available for public download often takes real engineering time. Long term science projects can span decades, and the first sets of data are often on obsolete media.
Overall, it seems an excellent policy, but exceptions will have to be made.
Those can be very useful for quick strikes. As long as you're not actually occupying foreign soil, your point is well mad But wars of occupatio0n take manpower, as demonstrated in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and the second Iraq war. And don't be mistaken, the USA didn't "win" any of those. In Iraq and Afghanistan now, the US is "declaring victory" and leaving a mess that is, in some ways, worse than when the wars started. Sadam Hussein, as much of a genocidal dictator as he was, didn't allow the Taliban to operate within Iraq. Now they're an integral part of Iraq politics.
Those are problems that air strikes and drone strikes don't solve, they exacerbate.
They want to reduce _personnel_. Personnel have to be trained, and are known to sometimes refuse illegal orders, or worse, to send home pictures of illegal orders.
I did not refer to the whole operating system. I referred specifically to the _kernel_. Do go read http://windowsitpro.com/window..., it's one of the better publicly available analyses I can find.
