Don't forget hiring a lawyer, an accountant, an accounts manager to make sure you get paid, an HR department to make sure everyone does their job, and finally developers to do all that work you were going to do on your own but now you're just too busy being the boss of all these people to do it yourself.

Do you want MBAs? Because this is how you get MBAs.

According to the article, it's a bug in PAM.

You shouldn't see this behaviour with SSH unless you have PAM authentication turned on. And apparently only in FreeBSD ?

  And as OpenBSD developer Marc Espie says in his message,

        Not surprisingly, as the patch clearly shows, the problem is right smack in the middle of USE_PAM code.

        I wouldn't call that an OpenSSH bug. I would call it a systemic design flaw in PAM. As usual. LOTS of security holes in authentication systems stem from PAM. Why ? Because that stuff is over designed. Difficult to configure. Gives you MORE than you need to hang yourself several times over. It's been that way for as long as I can remember.

I think Google should start charging them for false requests. $1 each and I bet sooner or later they are going to start having a human check them before sending the take down requests.

How about just calling it a convenience fee, and let's make it $25.37 for no apparent reason.

Convenient when your chart cuts off at 2007 when military spending peaked again in 2010 to similar levels that we saw in the 80's

I suppose that I could fall into the mud with you and trade insults, but I am satisfied that it would provide little entertainment and prove me to be no less correct than I am now

Have a nice evening cold, it is always fun exchanging ideas with you

Yeah, this graph is bad, and you should feel bad. Defense spending as a percent of GDP is a useless metric. Switch the graph to display in
$Billion Nominal.

The graph still is bad because it doesn't compensate for inflation.

But they can be harmful. For example, I've become convinced that Trump became obsessed years ago with conspiracy theories and he's now running for president on that...

Reddit was good, about 5 years ago. It's turned from a time waster to a waste of time.

I hang out in a few subreddits that aren't bad. The front page has become kind of a joke in a non-funny bad way.
