Yeah, and did you SEE the "roads" he encountered trying to do it?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
If they foist a wacky password or require one based on complex rules, it will either be written down, or be the most simple implementation of the rules.
LOL, I once did some contract work at a company who's IT department had some crazy stringent password requirements. You could walk around and find everyone's ridiculously long, complex password written on a post-it note on the side of their computer.
There should be a rule. The complexity of the password requirements and the number of password changes required each year are directly proportional to the chance the password will be written down and taped to the computer.
Yeah well that has no relevance in this case.
Yes, but I somehow doubt that a copilot suffering from a heart attack or medical problem (as the GP suggested) would have reacted by turning off the autopilot.
If a pilot or copilot wants to bring down a plane, it's unlikely there is any security procedure that could stop it. He didn't even need the locked door bit, He could have almost as easily just stabbed the captain when he turned his back.
You mean give Oveur the top position again?
Here you go: The American on board worked for a major intelligence contractor and was administering a mysterious $300 million contract for the Pentagon at the time of the crash.
A modern jet pretty much flies itself between takeoff and landing. He would have had to actively force the plane down to crash.
A huge wall seems like an ugly and in-elegant solution.
Don't worry. Godzilla will just knock it down anyway.
Russian roads across the bulk of the country are shit. And they haven't even built a decent interstate system going across the country. And they can't even properly maintain the shit roads they already have. And the country is NOTORIOUS for intentional accident scams (why do you think that they have those dash cams?). And a sizable percentage of drivers there are drunk and/or crazy.
In short, who the fuck would want to drive across Russia if the alternative of even a slow boat is available?
How do you say "Don't believe everything you read on Wikipedia" in Hindi?
Yeah, but the door locks will interface directly with your smart watch!
Compared to TV today is very tame in comparison. the US was still weaning itself off westerns, detective shows and sitcoms and Twin Peaks was edgy in comparison. Quite a few shows we loved in the 80/90's are like that. they were great at the time but didn't really stand the test of time.
Just the fact that its episodes weren't self-contained, it's subject matter was the rape and murder of a teenage girl, and the fact that it had supernatural elements made it pretty revolutionary for 1990. Add to that David Lynch's signature weird style and it truly was ground-breaking for the time.
The X-files, for all its hype, is pretty tame in comparison. Its episodes are almost entirely self-contained, for example. With the exception of a handful of mythology episodes, every episode begins and ends with the characters in exactly the same place. There are no real character arcs to speak of. By the end of the series Mulder is basically the same guy and Scully is SLIGHTLY less skeptical maybe. But that's about it. There are some great individual episodes (mostly the Darin Morgan ones), but taken as a whole it's a pretty conventional procedural detective show.
"Yeah great. How does it work when there's no reliable power source?"
JJ Abrams is actually scheduled to be a reboot of the comfort bubble in 2019.
