We have someone to take the place of the Iraqi Information Minister. I miss that guy.

Reminds me of that well-known reference The Story of Ping
Billionaires play Battleship with real battleships.
Researchers recently discovered that some SSL clients, including OpenSSL, will accept weak RSA keys–known as export-grade keys–without asking for those keys. Export-grade refers to 512-bit RSA keys, the key strength that was approved by the United States government for export overseas. This was an artifact from decades ago and it was thought that most servers and clients had long ago abandoned such weak ciphers.
The vulnerability affects a variety of clients, most notably Apple’s Safari browser. The bug was discovered by a large group of researchers from Microsoft Research and the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control, and they found that given a server that supports export-grade ciphers and a client that accepts those weak keys, an attacker with a man-in-the-middle position could force a client to downgrade to the weak keys. He could then take the key and factor it, which researchers were able to do in about seven and a half hours, using Amazon EC2. And because it’s resource-intensive to generate RSA keys, servers will generate one and re-use it indefinitely."

No, the transporter works by first filming with the actor, then without the actor, and combining the shots post-production with added glitter.
So it's a slight change to a famous quote: "Get your Ads to Mars!"
Olympics is for sports. Not games. Sport is "activity involving physical exertion and skill" google. And no, pressing keys or buttons doesn't count.
That must be why Mythbusters always drive to their remote sites.
But Skynet-1 vs Skynet-2, and humans are just the collateral damage.
I do not think that word means what you think it means.

It's true, just saw one on the corner. Had a cardboard sign, "Will orbit for $$$".
