Isn't it odd that sending emails is free, yet wire-transfers cost a fee? I think email communications are more processor intensive than the latter. Tally Ho Old Chaps!
Sounds like he went thru too much trouble. All he had to was tell pilots to pull down.

So we're talking about compromises and holes in the ground. Do compromises happen first, then holes are made in the ground? Help me out here.
Perhaps Google Chrome is the only browser than can take care of Flash Cookies and (the many) Flash Vulnerabilities in a secure manner. Good thing flash is free. I'd never pay to install a security hole in my computer.
If it didn't work then nobody would be selling it.
I wonder about the security of the networks holding all of the images of license plates and the databases of violators. What codecs are used and what streaming data type.
It's interesting how such an expensive system is thwarted with petroleum distillates and other natural minerals:
A quick five second spray on each plate. Some people don't bother to take the plates of the vehicle and just spray. I've seen this and it did not alter the appearance of the vehicle. Some undoubtedly have thought of spraying the plates of random vehicles. Some have mailed photos of the cash to pay the fines as a reply to the photo of their vehicle being mailed with a ticket.

Syria Cyber War Opens New Front In Russia
02 February 2012
By Jonathan Earle
The cyber front of Syria's year-old civil war spread to Russia this week as pro- and anti-government bots splashed criticism and expressions of gratitude across the Russian Internet, and Syrian hackers attempted to commandeer the website of a Russian embassy.
The attacks are a response to Russia's ongoing resistance to proposed UN sanctions against Damascus and willingness to sell weapons to the Syrian government, which has been accused of killing thousands of civilians to stem a popular uprising that began in March.
On Sunday, the Syrian National Council, the main opposition coalition, called on Syrian expatriates to stage protests at Russian embassies and consulates and "exert pressure" on Russia.
Syrian electronic activists appear to have heeded the call, as Dozhd television said its website started receiving three to four comments per hour beginning Monday night.
Thousands of Syria-related comments have since appeared on Russian news websites and Facebook pages. Most comments are sharply critical of Russia's defense of President Bashar Assad. "Russia sold its humanity when it sold weapons to a criminal regime" user Abu Mujahid al-Hamwi wrote on President Dmitry Medvedev's Facebook page Tuesday morning.
A small percentage of the comments — which appeared in Arabic, Russian and English — expressed gratitude to Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, such as one from user Hamoud Youssef: "A heartfelt thank you to Russia. Thank you for the veto."
The comments were ostensibly posted by users with Syrian-sounding names, but the high number of identical entries suggests that the effort is largely automated. Several comments appeared dozens of times from multiple users on Facebook pages belonging to Slon.ru, Afisha, and Lenta.ru.
Meanwhile, a senior official at the Russian Embassy in New Delhi said Syrian hackers tried and failed to commandeer the embassy's website, Vesti.ru reported Monday. The official denied earlier reports that hackers had posted photographs of children allegedly killed by Syrian security forces.
For months, Russia and its allies have resisted growing pressure from Western governments and much of the Arab world to take a harder line against the Syrian government, which opponents say is using tanks and heavy weapons to slaughter opponents. The UN estimates that more than 5,000 have died in the crackdown.
The Syrian government says it is battling terrorist groups, and Russia has called on both sides to reject violence and come to the negotiating table. In October, Russia and China blocked a UN Security Council resolution calling for sanctions against Syria within 30 days if the government did not stop attacks on protesters.
In December, Russia agreed to sell 36 Yak-130 trainer-fighter airplanes to the Syrian government in a $550 million contract, Kommersant reported this week. Last month, a Russian-owned ship laden with munitions arrived in Syria after being temporarily detained in Cyprus.
Analysts have speculated that Russia is eager to hold on to a longtime ally and prevent a repeat of NATO's intervention in Libya. Also at play are billions of dollars worth of arms contracts and a naval base in the Mediterranean city of Tartus, Russia's only military base outside the former Soviet Union.

"These unpowered gliders slip past radar undetected..."
There is no radar ever created that can detect these as they are gliding. I'm sure there is. Also a big baloon floating around with all this stuff dangling from it is probably going to show up on a radar system.
"...slip past radar undetected and start sending back information"
I'm pretty sure that can be detected.
