You can easily trust Facebook with your creditcard details. Creditcard payments represent the money of the creditcard company, not yours. In case of a Facebook leak, the system is compromised, not your wallet.
Ah, but you see many employees can't have a bank account. If your history with bounced checks is bad enough, no bank will ever open an account for you. Sad but true.
Excuse me if I sound like a troll, but checks are what my parents used in the early 1980s. How the hell are these still even present in the US today, let alone a dominant form of exchanging money?
All. A world where everyone is a criminal except for one person is still better when that one person is free and not convicted.
See, Alanis, *this* is ironic.
So is calling a song that does not include irony "Ironic".
This is not a problem with git --mirror: rsync or any other mirroring tool would end up in the same situation.
It's up to the master to deliver the goods and upgrading a master should include performing a test run as well as making a backup prior to the real upgrade. This was a procedural failure, not a software failure. But good to hear disaster was averted.
Presumably the one of Old Worlders.
From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:
False for The Netherlands. Yes, muslims like halal food and yes, they want it available. The food industry complies not because of threats, but mostly because 5% of the population is significant enough to cater to. It is no different from biologic food, vegetarian meals, etc. Now if one wouldn't be able to get bacon or pork anymore, that would be a problem, but the fact that aside dozens of non-halal choices there are also halal choices for sale is not an inorfinate influence.
The major difference is that when a Christian nutbag kills some people, in no part of the world is there a celebration in the streets. Whereas successful Islamic terrorism is in many places openly celebrated by whole communities passing out candy and cheering about how the murderers are heroes. It is intertwined with a culture of hatred and violence that is supported by communities.
Most of these celebrations are staged by interest groups. Also, many communities there are fed hatred through their governments and government-run media while having little to no alternative sources of information and no job or entertainment to keep them otherwise occupied. That is a problem, but I doubt religion is a major factor.
Christianity grew up. It's not perfect, it still has plenty of crazies in various kinds, but by and large Christianity grew out of the crusades mentality. Islam by and large has not.
Islam in the western (read: prosperous) world mostly has. Almost all extremism has direct origins in countries with oppressive regimes or areas with so much poverty, corruption and inequalities that any person would find it hard to create a decent life under moderation. The average muslim in a decent environment does not resort to terrorism or hatred any more than the average non-muslim in such an environment.
I'll sell licenses for $1kUSD a pop, which by 2038 will only be enough to cover the cost of a McDonalds Synthetic Cheeseburger Paste from the Value Menu.
Neh. Overestimating that cheesburger at $4 currently, that would require a yearly inflation of over 24%.
We evolved over billions of years to be exactly fit to live in a particular zone of the Earth's surface, and the odds of finding another suitable planet are as likely as Captain Kirk finding beautiful alien women who speak English.
Once a week? Not bad.
There has to be proof that such devices CAN'T harm a plane's avionics. Once that is done, we'll be able to play with our toys.
You are allowed to bring them on board. That's all the proof you need.
Anybody who put those on their application forms these days is just asking to be sued.
It's stupid also: age can be deduced from the resume. Someone who finished high school in 1995 like me is not going to be 18 nor 60.
The real question is: if Mars once had Earth-like conditions, is there a risk Earth will end up with Mars-like conditions in the foreseeable future?
If you aren't currently in college, you have to buy a mobile phone that can receive texts in order to verify your account.
If you have a computer or regular access to one and an interest in Facebook, chances are you also already have a cell phone or could easily get a lousy prepaid for a tenner. There are plenty of concerns one can have with Facebook, but this really is not one of them.
