Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Haven't sold RAM or machines, and I haven't chucked any out.
There are a lot of possibilities, best one appears to be be that it was simply sent to the wrong address.
Sure would be helpful if there was a return address and a name on the envelope...
When I opened the envelope up, I found two sticks of RAM in a plastic case.
There was no receipt or document inside — nothing to explain where it came from, or why.
I have not ordered RAM in years.
And now my brain keeps posing questions:
Why would someone do this? Why no name? Why no explanation of the source?
If it's a gift, why not include a note of explanation?
If it's a case of wrong address — why was no name placed on the envelope?
And that leads me to: Is this a really oafish & extremely clumsy attempt at gaining access to one of my machines? Could the RAM run embedded code, acting as a trojan attack vector?
But then why not just send me a USB stick badged as a promotional item?
Any ideas Slashdot?
Has this happened to any of you?"

From the article:
He did not go around evangelizing or proselytizing. But if he found out that someone was a Christian he would say, 'Oh that's interesting, what denomination are you?'" Becker said....
"He's not apologizing for who he is. He's an evangelical Christian."
you wouldnt find me close to a rocket launch
Here's a compilation of videos from a failed Soyuz launch - it got up off the launch pad and then came right back down, very close to the spectators. One person died.
If you hadnt guessed, the video contains lots of expletives.
Vladimir Popovkin, is this also the fault of HAARP?
Global Hawk = Northrop Grumman RQ-4
Predator = General Atomics MQ-1
The drone that crash landed in Iran: Sentinel = Lockheed Martin RQ-170
Yet folks persist in using "Global Hawk" and "Predator" to describe it.
29 April 2011 Russia has replaced the head of its space agency, Anatoly Perminov, who was reprimanded over a failed satellite launch in December First Deputy Defence Minister Vladimir Popovkin will now head the federal space agency, Roscosmos.
It's stupid and transparent and will ultimately backfire.
Looking at TFA, the pictures show the solar "tree" is a foot or two higher than the conventional solar array, which is barely a couple of inches off the ground - so is it really so surprising that it performed much better when the sun was lower?
It's a neat idea though and would love to see the kid continue with it
