The question is who is Valgrind. Sounds like a code name of an NSA operative to me
I see nothing about elliptic-curve crypto in that article.
That's bullshit, especially in this case. State-owned monopoly has no reason to compete with anyone. There might be some exceptions, but I live in Prague and the services used to be absolutely terrible until other companies started to offer these services around 2000 - cable, ADSL, wifi etc. It's much better now and most people have multiple choices. Btw the telco is not owned by state anymore, it was sold to Telefonica a few years ago.
Meh, should have read the tripadvisor page more carefully - it's not the original review. Nevertheless, the article states it was not removed.
... and when he refused to take it down, the chain of hotels sued him for $95,000. [quoted from the very first sentence of http://blog.sweetiq.com/2013/08/hotel-sues-guest-for-95k-over-bad-review/%5D
Anyway, good job Hotel Quebec! Streisand effect at it's best
nationalism - ideology based on the premise that the individual’s loyalty and devotion to the nation-state surpass other individual or group interests. [http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/405644/nationalism]
I don't see how a statement that there are significant cultural and value differences between nations (or even within nations), rendering "Europeanism" so vague it has almost no meaning, makes it nationalist. No one said that one nation's culture or values are somehow better that the others', or anything like that. So what exactly do you consider nationalist?
It's true that a lot of people in the Europe share a lot of the basic values, no doubt about that, but OTOH that does not make us a nation.
Anyway, I've merely pointed out that the statement "You must be European. Europeans tend to be so smug about themselves that they miss the irony in their own statements." is rather annoying because it applies the same overly generalized statement to all people living in Europe. Heck, I can't even think of a European nation that is somehow exceptionally smug about themselves
Well, he only said that Israel is "EU Associated Country", which is true. Then he said that when people say 'European' they don't really think about Israelis because it's so far away, yet I'd say that Israel shares a lot of European values because a lot of the people actually came from Europe.
Not really true. Both Azerbaijan and Georgia have (small) areas in Europe, north of Greater Caucasus Mountains.
I haven't said EU denies the diversity of Europe and I certainly agree that most people living in Europe share a lot of the values you mentioned.
I objected against something like "European nation" that EU attempts to establish (feel free to disagree with my impression).
Well, I kinda expected someone to point this out. Consider that a somehow hidden irony of my post
So yes, I'm well aware that there are 50 states within US, although I could probably name only ~30 of them, and that the laws may be very different among them.
I'm really wondering why not to circumvent this in some way. Say moving Groklaw to a country that is "out of reach" for the US government (not sure if there's one).
A more general question is what are a viable alternatives to e-mail. Everyone talks about how it's impossible to keep privacy with current email, because even if you encrypt the payload the headers are still plaintext, but I haven't seen anything solving this issue so far. It shouldn't be that hard, I guess - after all the headers don't really matter to the MTAs, except for the "to" so moving them to encrypted payload should not be a big issue (but maybe I'm naive).
If there's one thing that really annoys me on people from US, it's talking about Europeans. There's no such thing (no matter how much the European Union denies that). Europe is a geographical group of ~50 countries that are very (very very) different in all aspects. Did you know that Azerbaijan, Belarus or Georgia are European countries? (I have nothing against those countries, I'm just trying to explain that assuming all countries are like France, UK or Germany is pretty much nonsense). It's like talking about Americans when actually talking about people from Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Canada because thay all live on continents with "America" in the name.
Even this "We are the best!" bullshit is present only in some of the countries. That does not mean the people in the other countries are not proud of their country, they just don't treat the others as crap. I'd bet it works the same way in the US, btw - most people genuiely proud of their country/state and a few nationalist loonies (which get the most in foreign news, so the impression is quite distorted).
There's one difference, though. The Swiss are right.
The nastiest (security) issues I've stumbled upon usually happened at the boundary of multiple components (developed by various teams and therefore multiple individuals). None of them was really the single offender, it was mostly about incorrect assumptions / pieces reimplemented through the lifetime / specifications not detailed enough (well, is there such thing as a complete specification?). And those are the most difficult issues to debug / identify.
So "fire the guy who wrote the offending code" may not be as simple as it sounds. And even the best developers I know do a mistake from time to time.
