Now tell us what percent of breakins are due to guessing passwords. Maybe 2%. The rest are social engineering, default accounts, keyloggers, vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigured networks and people leaving their phones in bars.
Gloat? The hardware engineers would have to battle with the influx of software engineers battling for their jobs. Pay goes down due to supply and everyone loses.
Once the software engineers are in, there will be so many bugs that the robots won't have an advantage any more, so it will be back to status quo.
I'm assuming this is a joke given what happened to gold prices lately.
With real money when I take your wallet you have no way to prove it was your money. Its created this whole class of criminal called "thieves". A currency with traceable transactions eliminates that class and replaces it with smarter criminals.
So from now on I can get out of any crime by threatening suicide? The DAs are all quaking in their boots.
The average cell phone usage is 459 minutes/month * 300 M cell phones / 2 * 60 sec * 3 KB/sec = 13,000 PB/month (uncompressed).
As Security Theatre goes, TSA is more like "The Producers", a light-hearted musical about fascists designed to lose a great deal of money.
The IAU called it a scam and space.com called it a scam. So its a scam.
Screw reasoning, this is sick (2 balsts, 1 controlled blast, 2 not activated). Hoping investigators will find those people.
This is also doesn't feel like Jihadists...
It is typical Al Queda tactics to have multiple, coordinated bombs. If there were 4 bombs, it doesn't sound like a lone nutjob did this.
The amount of analysis that they can do on video from toll plazas, bridges and tunnels would be interesting to know. They can probably at least capture every license plate and do some cross checking with various databases.
I hope the birth rate has not fallen to 2.1. Birth rate is live births per 1000 people per year, and last I checked was around 22 in the US. You are probably thinking of fertility rate ( live births per woman) or population growth rate (difference of birth rate and death rate).
Maybe we already have...
People don't need planets to live. Or, at least, not to live on. Lagrange points to anchor habitats are a nice touch. Give me low G, controlled weather, and no Mosquitos any day. Get us out of 'natural' ( ignoring the natural/unnatural false dichotomy) environments and in to ones designed by engineers to handle hard human loving.
Yes. Because when you think about luxurious comfort "designed by engineers" is the first thing that comes to mind.
The law is out of date
Apparently so. Given the overwhelming evidence that many of the activities mentioned in this thread do dramatically increase the risk of having an accident, it appears that a lot more things should be prohibited than actually are.
If we should ban looking at a map, maybe we need to ban street signs also, since reading those distracts you from driving.
You can always run denyhosts, block any IP that attacks you, but it sounds like these guys are on your side, doing penetration testing.
If they are not, block the addresses. If they are local staff, call the IT dept. and talk to them, don't post to
People whao are "on your side" would ask your permission before trying to break into your servers. These are criminals.
