It's more like a safe deposit box than a home. And it can be accessed at any time without your consent.
Very stupid. And it looks like he is right....
I think he just wanted to confirm that the NSA sees anybody that is not on US soil as the enemy. While this was already quite clear, it is nice to get that confirmation.
The thing is that if it's gut microbes, then good food will cause problems too.
I'll just leave this here. And over there, and there, and some over there, and some in the air... Of course, that's a virus, not bacteria, but the principle is the same. What's in the food can feed or kill off what's in your gut already, or the food can be contaminated, and the contamination can outcompete or otherwise interfere with the biota upon which you depend for proper digestive function. Either one can wreak havoc on your digestive system. And let us not forget antibiotics' influence on your GI tract. As we have produced greater numbers of more antibiotic-resistant bacteria through their overuse and misuse, we've led to more widespread and common use of the kind of antibiotics that are equivalent to the nuclear option when it comes to your intestines.
"Probiotic" is the little Shibboleth that makes this smell like woo.
If poop transplants can drastically improve health, why couldn't regulating your digestive system with probiotics? Yogurt is a probiotic. It has proven related health benefits. You're FUDding. Are you invested in Big Pharma? Or are you just being a dick?
Things pretty much have stopped a few years ago for CPUs.
No, the monkeys cannot. Even making 8088 requires a fab costing a few 100 Millions. These chips are cheap today because they take so little wafer-space, but the wafer and doing anything with it has not gotten cheaper. The other thing is that the fabs that old chips are made in have been paid off a long time ago. Bomb the right 20 places on the planet an the human race would need a few decades to be able to make chips again.
Nonsense. A lot of tech is finished and does not get better at all. For a common item, look at the pencil or the hammer. They are finished. They were available in the same quality decades ago. They do not get cheaper. Or take paper. Or take gate logic, foil capacitors or discrete transistors. There are countless other examples.
Indeed. The slow-down has been happening for about a decade now. My personal indicator is that once a year or so, I think about upgrading my CPU. For the last few years, I have not been able to find anything significantly faster. That used to be no problem. I have to admit that I quite like this trend. Maybe we can no start to build better software?
On MC68xxx it was possible and was being done. It could also be done on Intel, but that assembler model is so cluelessly complex, the language is a real issue. "Content rich" has nothing to do with it.
As to C, competent people are using it, no need to hold the boat. Just realize that all those that can only do Java are not competent programmers. Also, C coders are highly sought after, see, e.g. http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html
Code reviews I have done confirm this, Java programmers are making the most clueless mistakes and are doing the least research when they actually need to code logic themselves. My explanation is that they are so used to just call libraries that they never learn any real programming. C coders cannot do that and hence more of them do understand time and space complexity, algorithms, efficiency and think before coding. That is not to say all C coders are good.
And according to Tom's, that exactly what the last BIOS update was all about. Taking better into account the tacho feedback.
But this isn't exactly ATI's first time around the bases... how did they forget how PWM control works?
Not all PWM Fan behave the same
That doesn't matter if you are competent, because they have a tachometer lead. you don't just send a PWM signal and then trust that the fan is going at the speed you want.
The data says that the 10th password in the list was used by 1000 users out of two million. The top ten, combined, accounts for 36,000 (eyeballed) of the two million passwords. That doesn't seem like an epidemic to me. A bit less than 2% - that is actually, IMO, quite good. Two percent of internet users are bad at understanding security? Wow.
You're bad at understanding reality. This only shows that at least two percent of internet users are bad at understanding security. There's lots of ways your password can be bad which don't involve it being the same as someone else's.
