Actually, HP offers free lifetime warranties on a lot of their professional networking gear (this warranty includes support, software upgrades, even includes fans/power supplies and is transferable). All in all, it's a pretty good deal.

I don't know about serial killers, but there's a great blog / review site where a doctor does review and comment on House episodes:
Well, in that case you could actually just skip the flash entirely.
The RAM could write directly to a dedicated area on the hard disk in the event of a power failure - sort of like how hibernate / suspend to disk works now.
I know one isn't supposed to complain about the lack of choices in the poll, but if this is asking about security there should have been an option for PSK vs. 802.1x.
Back in the late 90s when it was difficult to export strong crypto out of the USA, the PGP project came up with a program to get around this by using some loopholes in the law that allowed the source code to be exported if it was printed in book form.
So the PGP source code was printed out, made into books, shipped overseas, and scanned and OCR'd. My memory is somewhat fuzzy, but they had a suite of utilities to do this reliably. See http://www.pgpi.org/pgpi/project/scanning for a description and links to the tools.
I love all these "Use IMAP!" replies.
That's like asking, "How should I archive all my old web pages?" and answering "Use HTTP!"

Well, it didn't work out too bad...
There were 4 patent lawsuits and Corvis won two and lost two. They had a $35 million dollar fine for which they were allowed to apply $33 million of the fine to purchasing goods and services from Ciena (Corvis was already a customer of Ciena's anyway).

Just think, very soon now you won't be able to get a Mac laptop with a 17" screen or Blu-Ray.
Woo hoo!! I can't wait for 5G on my soon to be upgraded iOS 6 iPhone!!!
Left 4 Dead 3??? Surely you meant Half Life 3!!
Steam is a lesson in how DRM should be done.
So you're saying DRM shouldn't allow you to sell your games or lend them to friends?
The company I work for uses biometric security. The readers we use know that biometrics change over time and automatically update their databases every time you use the system (using some secret time weighted algorithm) .
You can set a threshold for the change/deviation/etc (in some people it changes more often than others). Our system only uses biometrics for authentication, not identification (that is, the biometrics confirm your ID, the biometrics are NOT your ID).
