New Orleans area is pretty large - not all of it was flooded. Relocating the city would have required to build a completely new infrastructure somewhere close by, probably getting a lot of land under the eminent domain from existing landowners. So no, it's not a good solution.

Protecting New Orleans against floods is a much better idea. We can do this, almost all of the Netherlands is under the sea level, for example. And it's NOT uber-expensive.

SS is _reliable_. You can certainly make more profitable investments than the SS Trust Fund, but you can't make them reliable enough to work for the entire country.

And about natural disasters - pretty much all heavily-populated areas in the US are at risk. California has earthquakes, Eastern coast has hurricanes, then there are tornadoes, heat waves, wildfires and so on. Where do you think most of the US population can relocate?

Really. Author is an idiot. He should actually read something that is not a documentation volume for his beloved IBM mainframe.

Linux has cgroups support which allows to partition a machine into multiple hierarchic containers. Memory and CPU partitioning works well, so it's easy to give only a certain percentage of CPU, RAM and/or swap to a specific set of tasks. Direct disk IO is getting in shape.

Lots of people are cgroups in production on very large scales. There are still some gaps and inconsistencies around the edges (for example, buffered IO bandwidth can't be metered) but kernel developers are working on fixing them.

Well, you really try to fail. You can't have it both ways.

If you're saying that people's will, not Constitution is above all, then certainly the will of hundreds of thousands of people in Ukrainian East should be honored? Right? After all, tens of thousands of people on Maidan were enough to oust Yanukovich.

If you insist on following laws, then all those in the government should be jailed for anti-constitutional revolution.

Nope. We can't. Because we don't trust nazi scum not to go and simply do their nazi-ish things once they don't need to keep appearance: http://www.rg.ru/2014/03/11/ki...

So in Ukraine it's against the law to air information that you happen not to like? And what about the law which forbids armed uprisings and attempts at overthrowing the government (ironic, I know)?

On your "trivia" thing - I truly do not understand why and how so many pro-Russian people suddenly became so well versed in technicalities of war toys.

I'm a reserve officer with a military specialty in anti-air defense. I think I even have a comment on Slashdot about it. And the video looks exactly like a strike with NURSes.

Yatsenuk promised to write a new and better language law. Where is it? And then there's the fact that on the very first day a repeal of law forbidding nazi crime-denial was attempted. And of course, Maidan is not nationalistic and portraits of Bandera were never there. Yeah.

As for media censorship - what pro-Russian channels are there? Lots of anti-Yanukovich channels were on the air during Yanukovich's reign.



About SNBO. Right now it contains: Parubij, Jarosh and others.

And on your last "SBU" bit.. so a "proof" consists of downloading an mp4 video from some 3rd-party website and checking dates in it. And this is somehow authentic?

As authentic as SBU's claims that all prisons in Kiev are overflowing with GRU agents. Or that Luhansk explosion was caused by an incorrect operation of an air conditioner.

BTW, another piece of trivia. It's impossible to shoot an Igla missile at an air conditioner - it simply won't lock and fire. Or rather the gunpowder charge in the launcher will push the rocket out of the barrel and then it'll flop to the ground right at your feet.
