Hope you're proud of yourselves.
Was going to say "you must be new here", but you have a very low UID. Surely virtually everyone must understand how the Slashdot moderation system promotes groupthink by now?
The cool thing about this, is that it'll force Dropbox to be a bit more competitive on price. That can only be a good thing.
Slashdot needs a "-1 Stupid" moderation.
I see that Mr Karpeles would tell anybody who would listen, just how clever he was, and how he is a member of MENSA.
Yet he presided over this utter, complete fuckup.
So who's clever now??
You haven't tried coding against Motif, have you? That manages to be worse.
Indeed. How many people get killed by magnet quenches in MRI machines?
Similar personality types?
The fusion community are huge users of high-performance computing. So even if they're not sinking money directly into building and operating actual reactors, there's plenty of work to do on the computing side.
And this conjecture is based on, what, exactly?
Fusion reactor performance, measured by triple-product, is improving faster than Moore's Law. Who's to say that eventually, reactors will be built that not only work economically, but even cheaply?
If somebody determined to get up to mischief, they'll do it anyway, regardless of whether or not your car is networked over CAN or Ethernet.
What you're suggesting, is that security by obscurity works, not that CAN is all that obscure...
The hippies, homeless people and Black Panther wannabes aren't really paying property taxes, are they?
The corporates and the people who work for them are.
So who's to say the people running the city government won't tell the former to go fuck themselves in favour of the latter? That'd be consistent with the logic of the free market a-la-USA.
I saw something about this the other day, and simply figured I'd stumbled across Prison Planet or something similar... any suggestion that it isn't feels really creepy.
Place has always been a bit lawless; see every terrorist and criminal piece of shit on Earth is attracted to the place.
Unbelievable that these Muslims should be allowed to get away with what they do in an Christian part of the world. I certainly hope that somebody teaches them a lesson, especially seeing that lawlessness cuts both ways, and makes it a lot easier for Whitey to come and clean house -- again.
