The nice thing about this "treatment" is that you can experience the VR party at home, where you can reach for your stash.
It has been common for the government to have public executions without trial when an american citizen is known to say "bad things"
Saddam Hussein did a little more than just saying "bad things"
I wasn't aware that he was an american citizen.
Plus we didn't off him when he was murdering Kurds and other "undesirables", or when he started a revanchist war against Iran that resulted in several hundred thousand, possibly a million, casualties. He only got in the doghouse for seizing Kuwait, threatening the carefully engineered balance-of-powerlessness established in the middle east by the the allies after WWI.
Plug your USB stick or disk or keyboard into the Pi, and if it reports that there's a new not-a-USB-stick/disk/keyboard, you know there's malware on the device.
So I'll make my malware pretend to be a plain old USB stick for the first N hours. Then it will simulate an unplug and replug itself in as a keyboard that types "format c:\ncat
It's a basic principle that if an attacker can compromise your hardware, you're fscked. But it looks like the new part is that the malware can go viral, reprogramming USB devices. Whoever was careless enough to release a USB controller with firmware that can be arbitrarily reprogrammed from the host computer needs to be taken out and shot.
I suspect also that "Machinery" suggests a society for hardware nerds rather than software nerds
Who the hell buys/uses CD's anymore?
My CD from the 80s (yes, I still have a few) and 90s and 00s didn't disappear. I buy CDs from bands at shows. (And usually rip them, eventually.) And doing business with the forms of Pure Concentrated Evil known to mankind as Apple and Amazon is not an option, so digital download options are limited.
Including no undergraduate degrees in business . . .
p.s., when Santa Clara (first college in CA) first offered a B.S., it was a watered down BA, not requiring as much Latin & Greek, but otherwise the same . . . (yes, this was the 19th century, and a BA still required calculus & physics . .
The "glory years" identified were my Jr & Sr years of high school . . .
The "other" things in circulation at the time were largely either supplements to the the original booklets (and supplements), such as Arduinn, Spellcaster's Bible, and Runequest (farther removed), or completely orthogonal, such as Travellers & Runequest (also TSR).
A bit of this, a bit of that, a few articles from Dragon, and so forth.
And the moronic arguments as to which system handled dragon breath more "realistically", for crying out loud. D&D (blast goes off in the middle of people, but the second row doesn't get shielded from the first) or something goes off between two people, but one takes half as much damage as if the other wasn't there (Arduin)
hawk, who has the original Arduin supplement somewhere (before the bra was added)
Straight out of high school, I ended up as the first employee of a startup in '82.
Both of the principals were recent college graduates (same school I was headed to), and were quite clear that they would be selling out, as they had "no idea" how to run a large company.
Ehh, I think that's on Sprint, not Apple . . .
Not that I'm annoyed that I can't get a Sprint signal at my regular courthouse, and end up roaming on Verizon . . .
Please point to the fascists riddling the current Ukrainian government.
Members of Svoboda, the neo-Nazi inspired party formerly known as the "Social-National Party of Ukraine", hold several government posts: Oleksandr Sych, Vice Prime Minister; Andriy Mokhnyk- Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources; Ihor Shvayka, Minister of Agriculture.
Svoboda is so far right that just three years ago there was a move to have the party banned nationwide: http://www.kyivpost.com/conten...
