Very cool, but I was referring specifically to the relatively recent vulnerabilities in relatively modern devices.
This story feels familiar...maybe one of the best reasons to avoid iOS devices. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
That's why I went ahead and bought my house now, with a fixed low-rate loan, and am paying more than the minimum so that I can (hopefully) have it paid off before the next bubble bursts. I was dumbfounded when I found out that my loan was sold within the first month...absolutely nothing has been done to prevent this sort of corruption, and I fear that because the general populace has no understanding of macroeconomics, there will never be anything done about it. I guess if you can't beat em...try to make sure they can't beat you either.
Buddy, I strongly recommend you turn off Fox news for a moment and consider the way the bubble was actually formed. (Forgive me if you're not a Fox news watcher...but your post is characteristic of the rhetorical malarkey they spread...) Big banks bought up "sub-prime" mortgages from small lenders at a massive discount. These lenders wanted to dump the loans anyway, because they were forced to lend to people who couldn't afford homes. The big banks packaged large groups of loans and called them "assets" - then sold portions of those "assets" back to the small banks and lenders, and on the international market. Now, technically, that's legal - anticipated income can be considered an asset. However, many of these loans that were part of the packages were already in default. This made the assets "toxic" - if the banks held on to them, they'd lose money, but as long as they didn't foreclose, they could claim the asset. So, each time they repackaged these mortgages, they were able to falsely inflate their reported earnings. THAT's what made it seem like there was actually more money than there really was. Couple that with the fact that by buying up the mortgages, the value of homes was artificially inflated as well. People had to invest more in their property in order to become homeowners. When the market crashed, and property values plummeted, those investments deflated or disappeared. THAT's why we had a recession. The "fake money" talk is nothing more than a failure to understand the function of a "fiat" currency - and we don't have space here for a course on global economics.
It's relatively common knowledge for those in or interested in the gaming industry. It means very expensive, very large games with a large staff and long development time. These games are usually produced by a smaller company, and published by a major distributor. A counter to AAA titles would be "indie" games, which usually means that they're both produced and published by the same people, or at least that the producing company is not under contract for publishing.
to control their own image, so they don't need to control the campaign. If patrons are happy, they'll do the advertising for them.
Obama said that mandatory voting would change the political landscape, but that it would be a temporary solution. He went on to say that he'd prefer a constitutional amendment that clearly defined the role of money in politics. Propaganda from the people with money who don't want to lose control...that's all this CNN article amounts to.
I'm sorry, but you're highly unlikely to be able to see that deeply under a cpu or gpu, given that when they're soldered on they're usually 5 or 6 rows of solder points deep. Trying to see that far under the chip from the edge of the board would be a nightmare, especially since you'd need to see all sides of each and every joint.
No. No. Unequivocally no. Do not attempt to repair cracked solder joints using a heat gun. The movement of the air will shift the chip when the solder melts, and will likely cause bridges which will short the chip and destroy it. The oven is much safer; there is at least no air movement. However, the safest method for repairing this requires an x-ray machine, as there is no other way to safely check the solder joints.
If you've been an admin since NT and don't use command-line...I feel sorry for you. Powershell is AMAZING - and you don't need a GUI on any of your servers. You can run 2012 without it and just use RSAT to handle 99% of your daily admin tasks.
If I were working on a serious project in which I needed no distractions, I would not be pleased at the idea of anyone being nearby, man or woman. I code best when I lose myself in the project and ignore everyone and everything else.
Bankruptcy =/= going out of business. It means they're broke and need government help to fix it.
I misread. This is a new hole. My apologies.
The hole was found six weeks ago. If they didn't fix it within that time frame, we'd have a serious problem on our hands. http://it.slashdot.org/story/1...
Tech pros have access to essentially everything. We have to know the ins and outs of every piece of software, have access to everyone's user accounts, and access to all storage locations. Because of that, we have to maintain strict confidentiality. It's best to keep that information to yourself, educate users on best practices, and ensure that proper procedures for security are followed.
