I'd also assume the default configuration isn't downloading and running exe's that are obviously malware either, but I guess defaults are an important thing to consider when considering security for the masses.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
You could simply unmount Z and H with no Ill affects as long as you don't need to access files outside of the C drive. No more problem.
Yes. It was pretty.
Don't you then generally run into the filesize limits of fat32 with the disk images rather quickly?
Is it just me or isn't that the point? Then it will be fixed for everyone, which is fair. Isn't that what the Black Hat conf is about?
I can see it now.
Just before loosing, the AI will suddenly shout "RAGEQUIT" and disconnect, thus denying you points for winning.

Decentralized universal authentication.
It's easy to find. It is posted on the linux kernel mailing list as well as in several git trees from kernel.org. Where all kernel patches belong. See http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/7/20/167 .
This is very similar to some of the strongly typed versus weakly typed language debates that seem to happen all the time. Should ease of use and fun programming come before or after learning about what's going on?
As a fan of both python and C/C++, I believe there needs to be a balance. When teaching a language to students new to CS, you have to gloss over some of the details in order to give them a basic understanding and excitement about what is going on.
My guess is that languages like scheme may inhibit this initial step, so that it is hard for students to catch on.
While this kind of power beaming technology is possible, I can't imagine that it's all that efficient. Are we really low enough on other forms of power that there will be enough demand to support this kind of remote endeavor?
It seems to me that google is one of the sites on the internet that make china's censorship work much more difficult. It's not hard to imagine that they'd like google gone for good. Unfortunately, google is a very real part of a lot of people's lives.
Is it possible that this (and other similar actions) are attempts to see if they would be able to get away with blocking google for a longer period of time, and not cause a mass uproar?

One of the many many valid reasons to drop Zune and it's marketplace is the DRM validation error you see below. The vast majority of the music I had purchased last year is completely gone. There's no refund, the music doesn't exist on the service anymore, the files are just garbage now.
Here's the unbelievable error:
"This item is no longer available at Zune Marketplace. Because of this, you can no longer play it or sync it with your Zune. There might be another iteration of it available in Zune Marketplace."
Did anyone else have Microsoft's licensing policy as a reason to jump ship? Or was the word "Microsoft" enough?"

I don't think I've ever heard an argument that was serious for the other side of this issue. Am I just ignorant? Or is this a non-issue that people like to discuss?
Regardless, censorship is a scary thing. Fortunately, the internet is probably bigger than most blacklist-based censorship attempts, and I don't think we're in such a bad position that people would tolerate anything more restrictive (whitelists or graylists). The great firewall of china is obviously the exception to this.
Is drug smuggling really such a big problem to require the use of military resources? It seems like something like this falls much more into the realm of law enforcement than something the military should get involved in.
I know that it is sometimes called the war on drugs, but is it really so bad that it deserves to be called a war?
