If you're instant messaging someone on the company's IM platform on the company's time why the fuck would you have any expectation of any sort of privacy?
I know my company can see everything I can do when I'm logged on to their computer. This is part of the agreement I signed with them. It's also the reason why I don't do stupid shit on my company's network like look for another job or send out resumes from my company email address.
Oh wait, the outrage is because it's Microsoft. Got it.
That would stop mashup services from working easily, for example embedded maps, which I work on: openspace
You are not being bayesian enough.
You need the probability someone is telling the truth given the evidence of being dumb enough to say "I've got a bomb".
If the Hypothesis is 'got a bomb' and the Evidence is 'said bomb', here are my estimates:
p(E) = 10**-7 proportion of travellers who are dumb enough to say bomb (one in ten million)
p(H) = 10**-13 proportion of travellers who have had a bomb so far (one in ten million million)
p(E|H) = well, ZERO so far, but let's say 10**-3 bombers who mention the word bomb (one in a thousand)
Then p(H|E) = proportion of people who say bomb who have a bomb = P(H) * P(E|H) / P(E) = 10**(-13-3+7) = 10**-9
One in one billion people who mention the word bomb will have a bomb.
So if we close the airport each time for two hours, our losses for an actual bomb need to exceed the damages for closing an airport for two billion hours before it is worth it. That's over 200,000 lifetimes of waiting in the departure lounge.
Any comments on my maths / approach happily received.
That theory (alcohol in the morning for 'withdrawal') is completely wrong. The chemistry is well known.
Hangovers are partially caused by dehydrogenation of alcohols leading to poisonous chemicals. Ethyl alcohol turns to acetaldehyde, but we can deal with this one (thank you evolution).
Methyl alcohol (wood alcohol impurities, present in most drinks to greater or lesser degree) turns to formaldehyde. This is very bad for you and makes you feel like hell. The process of creating formaldehyde is linear (because the total present must be limited due to toxicity), not power based, so there is never too much made unless the amount of methyl alcohol is even more toxic.
However, the conversion process is negatively catalysed (slowed down) in the presence of ethyl alcohol. So, a little beer can reduce the amount present enough to effectively remove the hangover.
Sorry about too many brackets (not really sorry).
I used to do this with a friend: peered ftp servers. Everything under
Of course, data volumes were lower then, and the sun was warmer, and girls prettier.
If he was in a coma, I'd think that'd be the part he missed.
Looks like they added Ethernet. Doesn't say what speed, though.
You still can. Just use proper cable hiding tools and techniques. Like whatever they use to make power cables running across floors OSHA-safe.
