Besides the "what if someone fucks with /dev/random" issues, there are problems like "what if the sysadmin forgets to create /dev/random in chroot" (ok, sysadmin failure but it can be protected against - and better to fail hard than fallback to a bad entropy source) and especially "what if an attacker holds open a bunch of FDs so opening /dev/random fails". This last one is perhaps the most worrying.

Considering how Carrie Fisher and Mark Hammil look nowadays, the movies should be set 100 years after the Battle of Yavin!

But seriously, watching them as secondary characters and possibly mentors to a new set of young heroes would be awesome.

I'd like to see Leia as a tough-as-nails politician in Coruscant, Luke as head of a new Jedi order and Han still flying the galaxy with Chewbacca.

(yes, I am ignoring the novels and comic canon)

You realize that hosting companies actually need to care about the physical dimensions of the machines they are hosting? They don't just leave a few PC towers in the corner of a room and call it a day.

Right, which is why there are things called "rack mountable servers" that come in predictable sizes...
