"Dear god no. Lots of different companies all trying different things is exactly what you want amidst technological uncertainty." If only. reality is that we are cash cows for these robber baron corporations. If there was some competition, I might agree it would be worth it - but there is not. Most geolocations you have one choice and once choice only
Just read the Intercept or any other responsible journal. This is Government alarmist B$ and the Sunday Times quiesced with it. Note that a 'Downing St. spokesperson' said they have no evidence of anyone being harmed - contradicting their own agent provocateurs...
I don't think the US had anything to do with the Enigma project, despite Mathew McConaghty's movie. If anyone deserves the credit it would be the Polish, French and Great Britain.
I'm now a Unix administrator after years of Cobol/PL1/C experience. That's why I refuse to get dragged along when my fellow SAs want to write the latest scripts in Perl and Python. Why do I need to learn a new language that is poorly typed when I can write the same stuff in a Posix shell ?
Very simple. Leave the 'Company issues iPhone' at home when you are not 'on the clock' and switch it off. QED.
I thought I saw a program that they did this in Colorado, or some other state. The point was it was easier and cheaper to monitor passing traffic and have the state pay to fix the cars that were the major poluters than have everyone go through an emissions check every year - or something like that.

So what do the 5% that are not in error predict?
More proof that the GOP doesn't care about 99% of the US public, just the 1% that pay them.
Yeah, that's what I miss most. and getting prescription glasses seems to make it worse. I used to use store reading glasses only for reading and computer, but now I'm having trouble seeing everything..
Apart from that, having an active young dog to take care of helps with my arthritis.
Mentally, I'm way ahead of most of my peers in Unix Support - experience DOES count for something after all..
I was a member of a golf course in Scotland that my father and a few others started for coal miners. (he started out in the coal mines in 115 at 14 years of age). Nowadays, they probably would not let any coal miners in,if there were any left.
This 61 year old would love to have 20 something muscles after shovelling snow for the last week here in the frozen MidWest!
Wot? No Klingon?
What's the difference from being ruled by the likes of Jamie Dimon?
Reminds me of a joke about Captain Mark Phillips, Princess Anne's husband. Reportedly, his Army colleagues called him 'Fog' because he was 'dim and a bit wet'...
