The onboard computer stopped working properly, causing systemic error conditions. The engine block ended up cracked, and the brake liners overheated and glazed. The windows wouuld only roll down. Replacing the compute module won't do any good in this case. It's time to total this one out and move on.

There are ways to do it without parading your "charitable attitude" in front of the world. "Don't let your right hand know what your left hand is doing," but in Bono's case, his right hand knows, and so do all of ours, whether we want to or not.

So you'll just accuse me of being "jealous." If having his resources goes hand-n-hand with being such an arrogant ass, I have no reason to envy him.

+ - Hal Finney, PGP and Bitcoin pioneer passes away

brokenin2 (103006) writes "Hal Finney, the number two programmer for PGP and the first person to receive a Bitcoin transaction has passed away. From the article on Coindesk: "Shortly after collaborating with Nakamoto on early bitcoin code in 2009, Finney announced he was suffering from ALS. Increasing paralysis, which eventually became near-total, forced him to retire from work in early 2011.""
