Just increase the disk array size and copy the data as it grows to larger and larger storage systems. Data that's offline is useless.
Unless it's published in a newspaper or magazine that is widespread. But printed matter seems to be on a decay.
What will happen with the Swedish Gripen planes is that they probably will upgrade the existing aircrafts to the E version, not necessarily purchase brand new.
Because not everyone out there is good - if you reveal too much about yourself on the net then the information about you can be used to order credit cards in your name and other malicious stuff.
Also be aware that it's the Gripen/E that Brazil will get. Improved specs over earlier versions.
The original design was done to allow it to be serviced by conscripts with a relatively short education using roads as runways. Therefore it was designed to have a relatively short take-off and landing distance. Things that may make a difference when things gets hot.
Skip the mandates, just tax the fossil fuels more and let the oil companies work out alternate solutions for fuel from renewable sources.
The benefit of taxing is that it might help the budget deficit too.
And that is not a problem, it's just one step back and two forward for them. "Oops I did it again!"
I agree - there's always the easy way these days, tag it as "child porn" and people will bring out the feathers and tar and all chances of a reasonable handling in court are gone.
If they want the item back then they need to provide postage and packaging.
And they can't expect it to be returned unopened or without scratches.
It may cost them more in handling to get the items returned than to call it a day and cut the losses.
A good encryption is beautiful and simple while still completely unpredictable unless you have the right key.
The less code that you have to use to perform the encryption the better.
From my perspective the use for NSA in going into the gamer realm would be more an exercise in infiltration techniques than any real threat hunt. Even covert agents needs training.
It can also be a great channel for information exchange between NSA agents.
The possibility to actually gather any useful real world intelligence from online multi-player games is at best questionable unless they have targeted a specific person that's identified already outside the game.
And also explains why people think that I'm weird.
Most creative works has been done by people not conforming to what the general population thinks. Leonardo da Vinci, Alexander the Great, Steve Jobs, Einstein, Chaplin... All were very good in their specific way. Of course - creativity also has to be combined with hard work to succeed.
On the Higgs boson that may be, but for the subject of TFA the Nobel Prize is not of any concern. The only reason why it was mentioned was to (redundantly) remind people that Higgs do have some academic weight due to the Prize.
And that was in Switzerland a century ago.
Patent offices today are flooded with weird stuff and almost nothing is rejected because it won't matter in most cases.
It also tells us about the way our politicians wants us to go - go in public transportation, don't think for yourself. Back to the "Metropolis" of Fritz Lang.
