You can easily trust Facebook with your creditcard details. Creditcard payments represent the money of the creditcard company, not yours. In case of a Facebook leak, the system is compromised, not your wallet.
I'm posting this from the camp site of OHM 2013, and I cannot confirm the results of this study...
Forgetting that I was on Slashdot and not on Google+, I instinctively reached to click the +1 button. You've hit the nail on the head, my friend.
Ah, but you see many employees can't have a bank account. If your history with bounced checks is bad enough, no bank will ever open an account for you. Sad but true.
Excuse me if I sound like a troll, but checks are what my parents used in the early 1980s. How the hell are these still even present in the US today, let alone a dominant form of exchanging money?
All. A world where everyone is a criminal except for one person is still better when that one person is free and not convicted.
How much is the IBM support contract for this?
See, Alanis, *this* is ironic.
So is calling a song that does not include irony "Ironic".
This is not a problem with git --mirror: rsync or any other mirroring tool would end up in the same situation.
It's up to the master to deliver the goods and upgrading a master should include performing a test run as well as making a backup prior to the real upgrade. This was a procedural failure, not a software failure. But good to hear disaster was averted.
Presumably the one of Old Worlders.
From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:
False for The Netherlands. Yes, muslims like halal food and yes, they want it available. The food industry complies not because of threats, but mostly because 5% of the population is significant enough to cater to. It is no different from biologic food, vegetarian meals, etc. Now if one wouldn't be able to get bacon or pork anymore, that would be a problem, but the fact that aside dozens of non-halal choices there are also halal choices for sale is not an inorfinate influence.
The major difference is that when a Christian nutbag kills some people, in no part of the world is there a celebration in the streets. Whereas successful Islamic terrorism is in many places openly celebrated by whole communities passing out candy and cheering about how the murderers are heroes. It is intertwined with a culture of hatred and violence that is supported by communities.
Most of these celebrations are staged by interest groups. Also, many communities there are fed hatred through their governments and government-run media while having little to no alternative sources of information and no job or entertainment to keep them otherwise occupied. That is a problem, but I doubt religion is a major factor.
Christianity grew up. It's not perfect, it still has plenty of crazies in various kinds, but by and large Christianity grew out of the crusades mentality. Islam by and large has not.
Islam in the western (read: prosperous) world mostly has. Almost all extremism has direct origins in countries with oppressive regimes or areas with so much poverty, corruption and inequalities that any person would find it hard to create a decent life under moderation. The average muslim in a decent environment does not resort to terrorism or hatred any more than the average non-muslim in such an environment.
I'll sell licenses for $1kUSD a pop, which by 2038 will only be enough to cover the cost of a McDonalds Synthetic Cheeseburger Paste from the Value Menu.
Neh. Overestimating that cheesburger at $4 currently, that would require a yearly inflation of over 24%.
I have no mod points, and you're already at +5, but I just wanted to add my +1, Insightful to your comment.
Religion has caused, and is causing, more hate and violence than any political ideology that I can think of in recent times. The tax-free status of religions needs to be revoked immediately.
As a former Christian, I've abandoned the "faith" and I'm currently trying to stop my wife from giving away my hard earned salary to an organisation that cannot prove anything it stands for.
Quote from the linked Mashable article:
with temperatures hitting 107 degrees Fahrenheit in some areas
That's 41C, and not entirely accurate. The island-state of Tasmania, the coldest (on average) place in Australia, reached 41C. Some areas on the mainland have reached 49C, which is 120F. My home in central NSW (six hours west of Sydney) was 40-42C for 4-5 days, with high winds for the last couple. Bushfires were burning several kilometers from my home, with over a hundred firefighters fighting to contain them. Emergency vehicle sirens have been common, and I've received SMS messages from the Rural Fire Service warning about how close the fires are.
Thankfully a cool change appeared yesterday, but there are still many fires burning around the country and temperatures are expected to increase again tomorrow.
As an aside, why won't Slashdot let me post the degree symbol (alt-248)?
