Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The point of my original post was that we have the convenience of not needing to enter our W-2 information (or even have the document in hand), at the expense of a security hole that can be exploited if someone has the right information, which is just run-of-the-mill personal identification information that we all give to many institutions, some of which have been or will be breached.
"Sorry, we got hacked and all your coins are gone. It was probably criminals in Russia / North Korea / Elbonia. Look! They covered their tracks so well, they made it look like the attack came from the Starbucks across town. We lost all our money, too, so we're shutting down and filing bankruptcy. Better luck next time."
Is there any way to track the stolen coins and void them? I wouldn't think people would steal them if they couldn't spend / cash them...
When the polling places are empty, and the line is several blocks long at the 'Pawn Stars' store, we are seriously fucked. This picture was taken on election day, 2012, a presidential election. It was posted by Ross Miller, the Nevada candidate for attorney general.

Apparently, a big sack of money always wins...
My lifestyle is actually based on designing and manufacturing medical research and surgical/pharmaceutical products which actually benefit people worldwide. The products I design and make are used in genetic research, blood collection and component separation, heart pumps, stent systems, many laproscopic surgery products, and hundreds of various drugs.

How many lives did your work save today?
For those who are fairly new around here, it was an old meme - a picture of
Right-click on the file, and select 'Details'. The EXIF tags are shown and can be edited here. Title, subject, rating, tags, comments, etc.
You can ctrl-select multiple files and edit the data that will be the same on all of them at once. For example, select all 50 photos from your vacation, and give them the subject 'Vacation 2014'. These tags are part of each file, and are indexed and searchable on Windows and OSX. I haven't tried it on Linux or FreeBSD yet, but I would imagine one of the various desktops' search functions will search (and index?) the tags.
Maybe they're laying the groundwork for something they can use to fight against the push for police body-cams.
This is the state that should have a 'governor's wing' on its prisons.
