Please spare me from "programmers" who have never seen the inside of a computer chassi!
I guess the crux of the matter is with this quote from TFA:
With the US currently ranked 25th in the world in broadband speeds,
With 4Mbps as a limit for "broadband intenet access", you just can't boast about being a leader in internet accessability. And not being able to boast hurts the American psyche.
Because 4k TV is a Basic Human Right. Right?
or alternatively - go do something already!
Looking at all the smart(ass) comments on slashdot gives me hope that 'living in harmony and peace' is not beyond our intelligence capabilities as the human race (how hard can it be?!?). Somebody just needs to kick the cynics' collective butt.
Fair try with the clock. 7/10.
According to a news article dated 29.12, the police announced they intend to interview 'Ryan' in the coming days.
(http://yle.fi/uutiset/epailty_suomalaishakkeri_krpn_kuulusteluun/7710003) Sounds to me like they asked him to come to the interview. No detaining or arresting involved.
I guess it is not the Finnish language that is to blame here, but the mentality.
They DDOSed two gaming networks at a time of their peak load, seemingly for the lulz. There is a non-subtle difference between that and taking down critical networks, both in attitude and required skills.
I haven't read into these DDOSes any more deeply, but thus far I have not found anything that even suggests at them breaking into the servers (except the headlines that seem to inclucde DDOS attacks as "hacks").
Furthermore, e.g. the Daily Mail reports that
Three rival hacking groups have called a ceasefire after admitting their Christmas attack on Xbox and Playstation gamers 'took it too far'.
It is obvious the script kiddies have started to repent to some extent. Dangerous criminals usually don't.
Finally, even the arrested brit is out on bail now, so obviously he is not a dangerous criminal either.
Let me ask this the other way: what benefit would come out of arresting the kid? Do you honestly fear he would continue and escalate his criminal activities now?
Being Finnish, I am sort of familiar with the Finnish legal system.
That said, I don't understand why the police would even want to arrest him. I mean, he is a script kiddie, not a dangerous criminal.
They probably told his parents, who are now in the process of mending their mistakes in this juvenile's upbringing.
"These are all providing very dangerous kind of cut and paste services..You can take code, cut it, paste it, remove it, delete it," said one government official who requested anonymity.
These sentences will live forever! Can't wait for the memes.
Honestly, my BS detector is beeping. This has to be a hoax, right?
You wouldn't have even bothered posting, had you actually RTFA half way through:
Currently the connectome model is being transferred to a Raspberry Pi
What luxury! I remember we having only 8 bits in our processors, and we had to use Arduino to get the blog creds.
The front page makes no mention of embedded software. Instead it talks about "commanding robots" and shows an example of connecting from a linux desktop over a serial cable.
This is not "embedded".
some sort of sexual adventure
No its not.
Especially if you are a Luxembourg-based company.
Seems it actually was:
Or could Stockholm http://here.com/59.333685,18.1037361,11,0,0,normal.day sue them for pirating?
And why is trasporting people so much nobler than giving them a thrill? Why is dying for the cause or 'trasporting people' more acceptable than dying for 'making people's lifes happier'?
I guess your answer to "what is the meaning of life" is quite opposite to mine.
Or Wednesday will win?

In case anyone is intersted, this slideset gives a nice overview of this "WWII tech".
