All this episode does is to remind us that security is hard. Encryption is even harder.
About three thousand like-minded individuals are wondering why this article was conceived and assigned to someone to write for ANY reason and why whatever that publication happened to be, why did they feel the need to publish this drivel?
Putting symlink in
Trying to run a Java app from, say, http://kriston.net/games/, the Java runtime might still refuse to work on the principal of "security reasons." Feh.
ACARS may have been turned off, but the radio interface used by the ACARS system was still pinging.
The article does not make it clear that the satellite signals in question are those of ARINC's ACARS data system, developed in 1978.
The CANDU reactor program got it right decades ago and keeps getting better, but since it's not from the US, and has the false reputation of promoting nuclear proliferation, the US is not interested.
CANDU also, unfortunately, has a politically-fueled false perception of promoting nuclear proliferation partly because it was falsely accused to have aided the Smiling Buddha program (that was CIRUS, not CANDU, but who's paying attention?).
Oh, there is that unavoidable 1% tritium release rate, though.
It is not "coal sludge." It's coal ash slurry.
Did the OP even read the article? Even TFA refers to the flood as consisting of coal ash slurry.
There is no such thing as "coal sludge," but there is "coal slurry" which is something entirely different from coal ash slurry that allows transport of coal through pipelines in a very expensive process.
This is cool but let's not delay commuter rail and subway construction.
Yeah, I agree, but many folks' computers with checkbook software are also used for lots of other uses, including games. My opinion of SELinux still applies.
Thanks for your thoughts.
I would have recommended the excellent Lindows/Linspire, then gOS, but, oops, they've been forced out of existence.
After that I gave up.
Simply put, gaming and the security model enforced by SELinux, just don't mix. The whole idea of SELinux is to provide fine-grained control to system resources. You can't have that and expect acceptable gaming performance. The specialized way that Miles' uses memory is just one example. The modern "direct" graphics drives are another.
How to solve this? Simple. Don't play games on your security assets. The security provided by SELinux isn't really intended to protect your checkbook from buffer overflow attacks.
But Mulholland did not draw down the water behind the St. Francis despite so many warnings of impending failure, and 600 people died as a result.
William Mulholland didn't take action when the St. Francis Dam performed similarly, and after his inspection, killed up to 600 people twelve hours after his inspection.
Unfortunately, USB requires much CPU power. Some folks believe Intel pushed USB so hard specifically because it required higher-powered CPUs to run effectively, unlike the competing FireWire which is DMA.
The Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook has a number of problems that require too much attention. Perhaps that's why I bought one new today for over $400 off list price. This Ultrabook has a 12.5" 1920x1080 screen, touch screen, Intel Core i5, 4 gigs of memory, 128 GB SSD, and has a nifty screen flipping feature so you can use it like a tablet.
Here are a few problems so far.
