or a centrally managed JVM. It's a little run-time environment that works on any OS. This is not a new idea but a different language. They don't specify what the app in the container is. A better platform independent solution would be very useful.

Thank you for making some sense today.
Although it is easy to prove that the Earth is older than 6,000 years I don't think we actually know how old the universe is. There is a new estimate that came out in 2013 so many people may not be aware of it. Before 2013 we estimated "that the Big Bang occurred between 12 and 14 billion years ago." that's uncertainty of over %16? Doesn't sound very confident to me. The good news is that the new measurement lands in the middle of the old estimate which is encouraging.
"How does WMAP data enable us to determine the age of the universe is 13.77 billion years, with an uncertainty of only 0.4%? The key to this is that by knowing the composition of matter and energy density in the universe, we can use Einstein's General Relativity to compute how fast the universe has been expanding in the past. "
Unfortunately, Einstein's General Relativity is not a bulletproof model and these estimates will have to be revised as our understanding of physics changes.
From my layman understanding; I think it's safe to say that the universe is at least 13 billion years old but it could be much older. It's the best guess we have.
BitCoin, by nature, is as trustworthy as SHA256 which is used by TLS, SSL, PGP, SSH, S/MIME, and IPsec. So the math behind BitCoin is trusted by most of the world whether or not you are aware of that fact.
As a currency it is just as trustworthy as any other imaginary money system. It's value is highly speculative, like the NYSE. Nobody really trusts the NYSE just as you shouldn't trust the value of BitCoin.
That being said, cryptocurrencies have the potential to be more stable than fiat currencies. BitCoin may not be the final solution but behold as we are watching the future of money unfold. History is in the making.
Can I get a big "HELL YES" ?!

I share my opinions and my nudity publicly. I'm not sure you have a point here.
No, I directly disagreed with all the points made. None of the statements made by AC have any relevance to the real world in which I live. The fact that Slashdot is moderated by a bunch of prudes who couldn't see the value in a person who is comfortable naked is shocking to me.
You could say that I missed the point but I would have to reflect that sentiment. It's fairly clear to me that AC thinks taking nude pictures of someone diminishes their self-worth and their societal value. That I can't agree with, my original stance stands.
This proves it to me. The NSA is really only concerned with collecting all the titties. They have the nude scanners at the airport to catch anyone who travels. Systematically they have infiltrated every possible way people use to share nude photos. Snapchat is a goldmine. All their dreams come true. Tits with every warrant. Now, with their unrivaled collection of nudie pictures they will rule the world with a strong masturbation hand.
That's actually what I put in mine
You don't know shit about USB rubber ducky.
Make your time.
All your base are belong to us.
Windmills do not work that way
You seem awfully indignant for a person who entered this world head first through a vagina.
A person is not made less rare by having sex.
A person is not made less rare by taking nudie pics.
A person remains as rare as they were born.
Some people are desirable and as such shouldn't worry about the trolls of the world seeing the naughty bits.
Sex is not rare.
Nudie pics are not rare.
All you squares need to lighten up.
Let your hair down and go to an orgy.
We live in a post sexual repression era which is the best gift the hippies ever gave us.
You were born naked. Why do you feel the need to hide your nature?
I remember watching the Tech Republic die after they did a similar site redesign. Sure, the website still exists but the community left. That site used to be all about a huge community of geeks who would just sit around talking about how they solved problems. Now it's a vapid wasteland. Slashdot is a fun way to read the news but after this redesign I predict most people will permanently move to Reddit.
