Like many IT professionals I use a combination of Firefox (everyday browsing), Chrome (gmail) and IE (OWA webmail for work). Choose the right tool for the job. I've used Chrome with the IE Tab extension but OWA is much better with IE. Ditto for gmail, Chrome seems to be better.
I see opportunity here. Once this beast is _somewhat_ operational it will need to be fed and cared for. That responsibility, like most US government functions, will fall to US citizens. If a security clearance is required even better. Lemons from lemonade I say.
Of course humans affect the environment, how is that disputable? It's the degree and duration of the affect that is not clear. Whether, or is it weather, these human changes are a significant factor is the debate..
The current/latest Pentagon buzzword and future money pit is cyber warfare. Whatever it takes to keep the money tap open.
In my case and back in the day the answer was 1200 baud. I was able to use vi in full screen mode rather than ex in line mode. If you don't know the difference be thankful.
Considering a career in politics? Language parsing and nuance abound reaching stellar heights with politicians led by super stars like Bill Clinton with his explanation of the meaning of "is" wrt to his intern. Clapper did not misspeak, he lied.
Work related and pays the bills, therefore favorite.
The math requirement should be a part of a CS degree. When I graduated back in the 80's math through differential equations and linear algebra was a given, then you could take math electives or CS based math courses such as Algorithm Analysis. Programming courses were 1-2 hours per semester and really not the meat of the program.
Are you sure they "keep stretching the parameters and scope" or are we just learning the scope and depth of what they have already been doing?
Cry me a river. Regardless of how much lip service is given to the current fiscal pain the gov is shouldering there is always a revenue source for pet projects and nothing returned to their source of funds (us taxpayers).
C64 for me too but I used mine to telecommute to the local university for my CS degree, which included some programming coursework. Nothing like a 1200 baud modem and software 80 character screen emulator connected to a PDP 11-70 BSD system as a C teaching testbed. Loved it.
The Italian Institute of Technology has "developed a robot whose purpose in life is to help a person build an IKEA table." and effectively traversing Dante's 9 circles of hell. Bravo!
What do all of these network/data breaches say about the overall state of security of connected systems? Regardless of who is behind them, all can't be blamed on mismanagement.
OffTheLip writes "U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz will lead the prosecution team working on the Boston Marathon bombing case as criminal charges are brought against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Ms. Ortiz is the lead federal law enforcer in Massachusetts recently drew criticism for her heavy handed prosecution of Aaron Swartz, some say leading to his suicide. The same tough tactics approach used in the Swartz case may well be more suited to this landmark case."

Businesses don't want to miss the next big thing but like most decisions, time will tell. "I've looked at clouds from both sides now, From up and down, and still somehow It's cloud illusions i recall. I really don't know clouds at all"
