Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
No, first you increment and then you shift left twice*. Increment is a unary operation, so you avoid an unnecessary operand.
Why does your browser use a crappy font for monospaced text? There's a setting for that. Mine uses Consolas. It's readable. And it differentiates between O and 0, and other characters that look similar (if not identical) in most other fonts.
The reason for DRM's existence is to limit web content to those users who have the money (resources) to pay for it.
No, no... the reason for DRM's existence is to enable users who have the money to obtain content. Otherwise, the creators could keep it to themselves and nobody would benefit from it! Repeat after me: war is peace. freedom is slavery. ignorance is strength. DRM is good.
I joke, but I think there are must be people who actually believe this. It's the only logical explanation for some people's behavior. The W3C is just the latest example...
Yeah, unfortunately on mine the device was removed entirely. I tried to find an older driver that had it, but it always said that it wasn't the right driver.
Same reason as the newer RealTek sound drivers have disabled/removed the Stereo Mix recording device: DRM.
Not nearly as soon as I'd like.
The unicode looked fine in the preview.
Editors, do your editing thing and please fix it if this story gets selected.
One top-secret presentation, titled 'Tor Stinks', states: "We will never be able to de-anonymize all Tor users all the time." It continues: "With manual analysis we can de-anonymize a very small fraction of Tor users," and says the agency has had "no success de-anonymizing a user in response" to a specific request."

Right now, in current condenser designs, water congeals in a thin film on the condenserâ(TM)s surface. Before new water droplets can form there, this water must fall away from the surface and be conveyed back over the boiler. âoeTo have the most efficient condensing surface, you want to remove the droplets as early as possible,â says Dr. Nenad Miljkovic, postdoctoral associate at MIT and co-author on âoeElectrostatic charging of jumping dropletsâ.
When a water droplet forms on a sheet of metal coated with a superhydrophobe, the droplet can camp there only so long as it does not merge with another droplet. As soon as it weds with another droplet, the energy produced is so great that the two will âoejumpâ away from that surface, as if in urgent deference to the surfaceâ(TM)s severe water phobia. Scientists have proposed that this âoejumpingâ could be incorporated into power plant design. But, in prototypes, this âoejumpingâ design is not as efficient as engineers believe it could be. Some of the droplets will just fall back to the condenserâ(TM)s surface, recoating it and slowing the process down.
A newly discovered component to the âoejumpingâ process might allow scientists to eliminate this fall back. In an accidental find, the MIT team found that droplets donâ(TM)t just spring from the surface â" they also rebound from each other, because an electrical charge forms on the droplets as they flee the hydrophobic surface. So, if a charge is applied to the condenser system, the water droplets can be electrically prevented from returning to the surface, he said. âoeIf you utilize the fact that these droplets are charged, you can now create an external electric field, which can attract the droplets away from the surface, and make sure they donâ(TM)t return,â says Miljkovic.
At the moment, these are lab results, but the scientists say that they are confident that the charged âoejumpingâ can be reproduced on a macro-scale suitable for commercial purposes â" those possible applications include not just use in power plants, but also in de-icing technologies for airplanes and wind turbines."

Did you read the whole article? One photon will be re-emitted in identical form to the original, but two photons will likely be re-emitted as a single, molecule-like unit.
Actually, it's designed to be web-facing.
Niagara^AX is a software framework and development environment that solves the challenges associated with building Internet-enabled products, device-to-enterprise applications and distributed Internet-enabled automation systems.
Worse, this is a laughably simple exploit of the web-facing interface:
By default, the Tridium Niagara AX software is not configured to deny access to restricted parent directories... An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a specially crafted request to the Web server running on Port 80/TCP
"The system insecurely stores user authentication credentials, which are susceptible to interception and retrieval. User authentication credentials are stored in the Niagara station configuration file, config.bog, which is located in the root of the station folder"
In other words, it's about as simple as GET
Also, forgot to mention, isn't the implication of some cracked / some non cracked that whoever originally got their hands on the data only has the hashes, not the full passwords?
Of course, it's also possible that some scavenger started cracking the SHA-1 hashes in a file that someone else released...
