How did you do this?
(I think the most useful thing to share would be the magic Google search phrase that'll let us search for into about this feature. This is really useful,but I've got no idea what it would be called
Oh! Factor like in math. For some reason I assume factor like refactoring code.
What do you mean by 'factor it'?
I did recognize the tr command, and then plugged it into Cygwin's bash to see what it did.
Best. Sig. Ever.!
... and probably elsewhere. I'm guessing there's a window between when TrueCrypt.org posted 7.2 and when the various mirrors will pick up on it.

Whenever someone Slashvertises something on
So why do they keep doing it? I gotta believe that if someone's paying for it that at least one customer would follow up with the results at least one time (and send feedback to whichever company/-ies slashvertise for them)
(Yes, my subject should be "Why do Slashvertisements...", but I ran out of characters
Can someone help me understand why anyone ever thought the 'digitize your mail' thing is a good idea? I mean, if you want to send/receive digital messages, you've already got a cornucopia of options - email, IM, Facebook messages, etc, etc, etc. You can 'scan' stuff yourself by snapping pix with your smartphone, etc. So if you want digital transmission of information you've got that right now, today, without having to go through the extra step of writing/printing it all out on paper and then going to the post office.
Conversely, if I've chosen USPS it's because I don't want stuff digitized. When my young kid makes something Amazingly Awesome for the grandparents I want that physical object delivered to them. Sure, it's an 8.5" x 11" piece of paper with (mostly) scribbles on it, but when the grandparents see that my kid has finally learned how to write their names out it'll melt their hearts, then go straight onto the fridge door.
Even people posting here seem to be mostly talking about ways to remove junk snail mail, not the Incredible Awesomeness of Outbox.
So, remind me again - how is this anything other than a terrible plan that died a well-deserved death?
Ok, I feel better now
But on a serious note - I would really love some insight about why transforming the USPS into the world's largest scanning service seems like a good idea.

Lone Starr: What?
Dark Helmet: I am your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.

As of right now (12:23pm PST, 4/21/2014) the parent post is showing +2.... Flamebait.
I've been here a while but never seen a negative word attached to a positive score (it's always been +3 Informative, or +4 Insightful, or +2 Funny, or whatever). I don't think that my personal 'score adjusters' would give anything enough points to boost a -1 or 0 up to a +2.
I'm assuming it got mod'd up with a couple different modifiers (one insightful, one interesting, etc), then mod'd down with only Flamebait (and so Flamebait is the most common modifier), but I'm curious (1) if anyone else is seeing this and (2) does anyone have a better explanation about the score/modifier?
Math is more informative than off-the-cuff assertions. Embrace it.
Mod parent up! The entire post is solid, but this quote is solid gold on top of that!

- 3) We're still calling those executives that fly around in private jets assholes
