Other people have politicians that require you to use open source if available.
The core issue is whether a government should be providing a service.
Is a road, street lighting or waste disposal a 'service'?
Is intarwebs a service?
It's almost like you are in the middle of Montana..
Enough neonicotionoid progress and you might have nothing left to eat. Or take turns pollinating the plants that will become your food with a brush.

I'm pretty sure Sharia law predate cameras by a good eleven or twelve centuries.
> Windows can't run a month w/o needing a reboot
Regardless, I reboot all my linux, unix and bsd boxes once a month too. Just to be sure anything can rebooted by a noc monkey without disturbing my sleep.
During daytime, yes. Redundancy is a lie unless you test it periodically.

No need to, it's built into the OS. It even has a nice cli to handle starting, stopping and logging. ttysnoop.
However, getting sufficient permissions is the hard bit, especially for a remote attacker.
Pavement (material), the durable surfacing of roads and walkways;
but, I would, if I (and the Amish) could. Find a way to combine their lifestyle with a non-religious set of life values, that is. And a month a year without disruptive technology is the bare minimum.
(Note the difference between atheist ("not believing in an almighty super being") versus non-religious..)
Also, fuel fires are easier to deal with. Just spray a bunch of foam everywhere and you're pretty much good.
You seem to seriously underestimate the amount of science that goes into extinguishing fires. The average crash tender carries five completely different systems for fighting various fires, and every fire department has a sixth one ready. Then again: the stuff that they carry isn't designed for the kind of danger a high power car battery poses. But, expect larger L2 firefighting systems becoming standard on your average fire truck real soon now.
You need upvotes, but I'm out of modpoints.
You are very correct. Take for instance OpenVPN. It uses RSA to exchange an random AES session key. RSA and AES/DES/3DES have different uses, and replacing RSA with AES is simply not possible.
