I've heard a discussion about the possiblity that the plane broke free of gravity and flew into space, because of the light weight composites used in the contruction of the plane (I swear I'm not making this up)
by my own observation and I've heard it mentioned a lot on forums
I suspect that that won't work, because the entire disk become unreadable by the OS. I mean you can't even see the list of files
CD-Rs last for a *lot* longer than DVDs, but they are impractical because of capacity
> I always rip it to DIVX. 800 MB for a DVD or even bluray rip is a great economy
I do that as well, but I found out to my horror that all my DVD's had become unreadable over time. So, probably good idea to test your backups from time to time
It's quite easy to work around that small problem, if you implement the scheme with a small amount of intelligence. Some one trying to dos you will becoming from a different IP than the legit user, so you only time out if coming from the same domain.
And yes, cloudcracker was used to crack passwords: http://arstechnica.com/securit...
Developers should protect the password from brute force cracking by putting a time delay after successive failed login attempts. It doesn't really matter how strong your password is, if the system allow unlimited login attempts then it's possible to crack using something like CloudCracker.
Spiderman 3 was an awful movie. I wonder why they choose to support that?

Yes, the Japanese were lucky the meltdown happened at the same time as the tsunami. As the tsunami is worse, then the meltdown "doesn't count." Hurray for the amazing logic of pro-nuke fanboys.
Every time a plane goes down suddenly a terrorist bomb is always the first thing suspected. That's despite the fact that only one bomb has ever brought down a commercial plane
I remember XSI had a reputation as being the easiest to use 3D modeling package, much easier than either Maya or Max and they sold it at a far cheaper price. So, Autodesk bought it and increased the price to $5000, to prevent it competing with it's overpriced Max and Maya packages and now they kill it.
The OpenGL presentation is given by Nvidia (not AMD as suggested by your link). This amounts to Nvidia's response to Mantle - they obviously will never implement Mantle, instead try to improve existing APIs
In theory Microsoft could release DirectX 12 as Windows 7 SP2, just the same way they did for DirectX 11.1.
That might seem unlikely, but Mantle supports Windows 7, so if they want to prevent Mantle from getting popular they might have to consider it.
