Games, both downloaded and on optical media, are likely to be encrypted eight ways to Sunday on modern systems. Before you can even begin to emulate games from a modern console, you need the unencrypted binaries, or you need to resign yourself to running community-developed homebrew. This means extracting the console key from a console, which is not likely to be a trivial matter.
Sigh... said it before, but most fourth generation designs including the one the US killed by John Kerry's ignorance burn nuclear waste as fuel. Russia continued, and their once through versions like the BN-600 burn 80% of their nuclear fuel and would burn nearly 100% if they used continuous reprocessing, but that is considered a proliferation risk. 80% - vs
In any case, one of the primary reasons nuclear experimentation was killed off was that it was corrupt and in the pocket of reactor owners - from the NRC site itself:
AEC to NRC
By 1974, the AEC's regulatory programs had come under such strong attack that Congress decided to abolish the agency. Supporters and critics of nuclear power agreed that the promotional and regulatory duties of the AEC should be assigned to different agencies. The Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 created the Nuclear Regulatory Commission; it began operations on January 19, 1975.
The NRC (like the AEC before it) focused its attention on several broad issues that were essential to protecting public health and safety.
The NRC rubber stamps everything too, so not much has changed.
expect to see a lot more of these "See, privacy invasion is good for you" articles. Their purpose is to "prove" that all this spying and data collection helps catch some very naughty people in icky foreign countries. some of them with really bad accents or even terrible mustaches (aka "proof of evil").
Correct, but at least you can make the wrong slightly more convenient. If you're going to force me to buy a product that I neither want nor need, the least you can do is pick it out for me, purchase it for me, and just let me deal with the bill.
One of my biggest objections to Obamacare as it has been implemented in Oregon so far, is I don't have 164 hours of my life to give away to downloading a 19 page PDF, to print out, fill out, send in, get the wrong one back, get my identity stolen by the prison inmate doing data entry, get the right one back, pick a plan, get told it's the wrong plan, get a guess on what my subsidy will be, pay the wrong amount, have to write 6 checks to pay the right amount, only to get fined in the end because they lost the paperwork.
Yeah, exactly. Get him a job with a real employer, like one that pays a living wage.
Who owns the prison? Most of them have been privatized now.
I'd say that is the ideal situation. The methodology of Obamacare is that you are forced to buy a product. Identity thieves buy the product for you, and get a bonus from the insurance company for signing you up. A win-win-lose out of a system that was previously lose-lose.
Send offer and respond with resume, isn't that a bit backwards?
Oh, and like a cousin once told my great grandmother- nobody's going to get excited over somebody born in 1970 who needs a girdle. (ok, so the original version was more nobody's going to r*p3 a woman born in 1902, but the same idea applies).
And then from a Starbucks, using their wifi, post a meme picture saying that "X website has no security- don't use a critical password or personally identifying information for your kids unless you want them kidnapped by a sex abuser" on the App's facebook page.
Never own up to starting the meme, but watch things change VERY quickly.
Cover Oregon is full of paper-related security breaches. Until they fix the security process, I for one will NOT be trusting them with my personal data- especially not filled out on paper and snail mailed.
"that would seem to imply that people could become far more intelligent simply by acting like a genius"
Which is kind of Edison's life story, isn't it?
A mailing label on the back with full contact information does the trick.
Actually, the last time I snail-mailed a State Income Tax return, was 1994. Since my first W2 job, I've used Turbotax and saved the stamp.
And IIRC, even back then, it was a 40EZ since I was still in school- a one page form.
Wish I had mod points for this. Exactly right. Which makes me think that $100/15 minute stints in this room wouldn't be bad at all.
