A computer that has run for three years. That's so cute!
[Just one more reason] to legalize and regulate.
I can see how this kind of story would support legalization (crimes against criminals often go unaddressed), but how would it support regulating? Is theft unusually common with unregulated crops, as opposed to regulated ones?
(Ignorance plea: Heh, it occurs to me that I don't even know what crops are regulated and what isn't. Maybe agriculture is already totally micromanaged by Washington; I sure hear enough stories of corruption (e.g. subsidies) within the topic!)
You can extract the harvest via UAV.
Sometimes I think the war-on-people has an upside. This is how we're going to develop the tech to colonize other worlds. I think you just described a Martian farm from the year 2200.
Legalizing weed would take some money/power away from cartels which is always a good thing.
It's not a good thing, if your financial interests are aligned with the cartels.
If I'm on Al Capone's payroll and you ask for my opinion of the 21st Amendment, I'm going to say it's a bad idea.
I don't really have a specific argument about the numbers. Truthfully I couldn't pay attention long enough to really find a flaw in the argument. That said, my gut is telling me author is wrong.
Damn, why didn't I think of this?
People, is it true? Would the market bear a "Republican Technology News" site?
This will only harm computers that make use of the patent. If you don't run Bill's software, your computer will be fine.
Hmm. That sounds familiar, somehow.
So your suggesting that Glass be made more covert?
No, I'm saying why people don't like it.
So you're saying people would dislike it less, if it were more covert. Whether Google or their competitors should take that as a product design suggestion, is left to the reader. Understood.
This code could have easily been detected with static analysis. It's a common failure pattern. You just taint data from the network as untrusted and look for when invalid use cases.
I do static analysis like this on the linux kernel for a living.
If everything the medical industry has been doing has been wrong, why has human life expectancy consistently gone up?
That's an illusion. You only think life expectancy has gone up, because you look at evidence. But suppose we ignore dubious things such as evidence, measurements, math done on those measurements, inferring general rules and then testing them, as well as all our everyday experiences where reality seems to be functioning according to understandable rules. Then what reason is left, for believing that life expectancy has been going up? None, that's what.
Balancing out that nothingness, there's my feelings and intuition and paranoia and whatever dogma I've been exposed to. And those things tell me medicine is bad. Ergo, it sure looks like life expectancy is going down.
Although Helstrup is still not completely convinced that it was indeed a meteorite that flew past him, the experts are in no doubt.
“It can’t be anything else. The shape is typical of meteorites – a fresh fracture surface on one side, while the other side is rounded,” said geologist Hans Amundsen.
The video in the article shows the metorite. It's in the dark flight phase, with low velocity."

It's not clear that USAID was at the front on this opperation. They were funding it secretly through shell companies. When it comes to clandestine operations the CIA has better qualifications. It's just stupid, and more stupid.
The government already has the CIA for this stuff. It was amazingly dumb of USAID to start doing the CIA's job. The head of USAID should resign followed by a full investigation.
But that won't happen because the government has stopped caring about appearances any more.
[yeah, this is a digression]
SSL/TLS need to be reworked to support multiple root CAs in case one is compromised. That way, if two CAs have no clue about a cert, but one CA vets it, this can raise a red flag.
That's not how you do multiple CAs. You don't raise red flags; you abstain from raising green ones. Everything starts red by default. No CA (even the most hated and distrusted one) can ever possibly harm your estimation that a key is correct; they can simply fail to increase your estimate. Trust is somewhere between zero and one, but never less than zero. Even Cthulhu Hitler CA rates no less than 0.0.
they see no additional benefit to do a costly upgrade, no reason to change a running system
.. So what is the best way to secure this remaining Windows XP systems?
Don't. Don't secure it. Just let the chips fall where they may. Failure is an option, and you've presented things such that it's the best option.
Before you reply with "that's crazy" (or "that's lazy") let me remind you, that you there's "no
If you change your mind about it being a don't-care condition, then you open the door to upgrading to a maintainable OS. But you can't do that, until you decide that upgrading does have benefits, and there is reason to change a running system.
People should switch to metric religion. The sabbaths are every ten days, there are ten super-holy days per year (each with one special rite and ten minor cultural flavorings) which are always guaranteed to never also land on a sabbath so you get an extra day off from work, there are ten gods, the tenth son of a tenth son gets a magic power (among a choice of ten possibe powers, and balanced by one of ten disadvantages), each priest gets immunity from prosecution for one of ten different crimes (yes, rape is one of the choices, but they don't all have to choose rape!), the holy book that you're expected to be familiar with is only a hundred pages long and contains ten myths, and the kilochurches (there are no "megachurches") are only allowed to have one thousand members apiece before they're required to fission into hectochurches, so there's plenty of parking and they don't antagonize their surrounding community so much, thereby limiting the amount that you're hated and loathed in residential areas.
