My guess is that he doesn't understand how sequences work, and expects more than just a monotonic counter.
Specifically, I think he missed this line in the documentation:
To avoid blocking concurrent transactions that obtain numbers from the same sequence, a nextval operation is never rolled back; that is, once a value has been fetched it is considered used, even if the transaction that did the nextval later aborts. This means that aborted transactions might leave unused "holes" in the sequence of assigned values.
I believe the issue carried over from Apache Harmony, if this is the issue at fault.
I see NFC used all the time; mainly by people checking the balance of transit cards.
It's really handy to be able to check how much you have left on a card, without waiting in line for one of the machines.
If I start typing my full name, Google autocompletes with "murders"...
Note that the IRS does pay (pretty good) interest, if they owe you enough.
I found that out one year when cleaning up the mess resulting from a forced stock sale (due to a takeover) and a broker that did backup withholding for the entire amount, ignoring the cost basis; but reported to me that a smaller number of shares had been sold, and that nothing had been deducted. After a few go-rounds I got the corrected paperwork in June, and filed a 1040X.
The extra check for the interest was a nice surprise.
Not really; payments appear to have been broken since dice took over.
The grounding is a trick; it just ties you into the Earth's energy fields, and makes the mind control easier.

I picked up a 360 with Kinect for my parents a couple of weeks ago. Controllers are becoming more difficult for them to use; and I figured controlling a game with whole body movements would work better for them.
So far they've really enjoyed it; it seems to be a good fit for the same casual gamers who have been using a Wii, but want games that are a bit more complex.
The problems which are solved are used to generate checkpoints in a distributed proof-of-time system which is then used to impose a partial ordering over a list of transactions.
They've been there for years; haven't you noticed how some drivers mention the organization that sponsored writing them?
ELKS is a subset of the Linux kernel that can run on 286 chips.
On rural roads it can be handy when your GPS alerts you that 110 miles ahead there was an accident, and the road is now closed. In 50 miles, you should turn left, then right in another 30, and approach your destination from the other side so you don't have to backtrack when you reach the closure.
It can also be handy with mountain passes that close suddenly after rockslides. Often while there is an online notification sent out, they only post signs a mile or so away from the closure, and not 40 miles back where the last branching road was.
At the local mall, there was a "Babbage's" and an "Electronics Boutique" right by each other. They would always try to undercut each other, so you would want to check both.
I remember one stuck with the old 8 bit systems for longer than the other, but I can't remember which.
There was also an odd local store which stocked Atari 8 bit series stuff until at least 1995; they had only Atari hardware; ST and Falcon 030 computers; and Jaguar game consoles.
