When the NSA says these kinds of things, it's like they are saying that they are immune to being cracked.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
They're blocking Xeon chips, not Opteron chips. So, maybe some single-threaded programs the Chinese are running will suffer for it, but that's about all.
What? Where am...safeword, safeword!
Ah, but there is; however, you won't like it. All this extra spying consumes resources, resources that would be better spent elsewhere...over time and as it increases, there is a noticeable drag effect on the economy. So you see, those shadowy creatures won't be kept in line by a shining white knight come to save us, but rather by the proverbial laws of thermo-economics.
In other news, Satan is viewed positively by those who have never heard of him...
Nonsense. All they need to do is label the floppies accordingly, and all manner of fun could be had.
"We've lost our 'WMDs.'"
"'North Korea' has proven incompatible with current reforms."
The jokes write themselves.
Being that he's a script kiddy, the hole's he's exploiting have to be known to the world + dog for months, years, possibly decades...this is on the order of having a hole in your living room for weeks, and doing nothing about it, when a hurricane shows up and makes you miserable.
He's underage, a script kiddy, and is truly a threat only to those people who think that 'pa$$word1' is an innovative password.
Hmm, I don't know, grounding him for a month, and taking away his computer for a week or two would probably be as effective as a ten year sentence.
Remember, they're script kiddies, which, before
Good luck with that. Your Ford Focus is probably not as safe at 60 MPH as my BMW 328xi (or whatever), so the safe speed differs per car. Additionally, since I suffer from microseizures, and you don't, you may be able to travel more safely at higher speeds than I.
Feel me? Good. Some people are blessed with the right bodies and cars to drive safely at 120 MPH on 60 MPH limited roads; others doing 30 MPH is a challenge.
I thought we agreed to ditch JS, and use Python with C-style brackets instead.
Rofl...thanks for making my day.
Sounds like someone has never worked IT before (a summer job for many budding programmers during their high school years). Higher level IT wouldn't happen without knowledge of scripting languages (Python, PowerShell (I guess), Perl, etc.).
As for HR, they can assume I am the postman as long as they meet my hourly rate.
Now if only Obsidian by Rocket Science were available...
I suspect he wants Vetinari.
What this will do is turn climate into a tactical weapon. Christ, they've done it with everything else.
