The very very low transaction costs of cryptocurrency is only true for a very small population of very technically sophisticated persons -- maintaining safe and secure encrypted data backups involves the kind of skillset that companies pay good money for, so doing this as a hobby is not exactly "free" in any practical sense. The rest of us will need to lean on exchanges, and factor in how to pay for insurance against another apparent (IMHO) inside job like MtGox.
No need for encypted data backups. Transactions are all in the blockchain, not on your computer and addresses (and private keys) can be generated offline. It's enough if you just print your private keys on paper and keep those safe. The only way to lose your bitcoins is to lose your private keys.
This also the reason why storing bitcoins on an exchange is a bad idea. If you don't have the private key those bitcoins are not really yours.
kph is routinely used in many metric countries. it's not at all unusual to see it.
Then they do it wrong. Do they also not begin their sentences with capital letters?
I guess we agree that kilometre (or kilometer for the US) is an SI unit. So in the International System of Units:
k = kilo (prefix for one thousand)
m = metre (base unit of length)
h = hour (unit of time)
Thus the correct unit symbol for kilometre(s) per hour is either km/h or kmh^-1. It's really that simple.
Custom firmwares can be installed from the stock web interface (same as normal firmware update). It has plenty of processing power and RAM and has been very reliable. Between firmware updates it has regularly clocked over a year of uptime without a hiccup.
$ sudo killall -9 politicians
But whatever. You'll only end up witnessing the following:
"$USER is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported."
meego is just as much linux based as android is. To me it amounts to changing the colour of the bikeshed a bit.
Oh, so Android now ships with GNU/busybox userland and X (or Wayland in case of Sailfish) out of the box?
his is why the US catches Russian sleeper agents occasionally... or busts Chinese spies. This happens all the time. And the general convention on the matter is that if we don't punish their spying we won't punish their spying.
Being in company of China and Russia with your track record isn't something I'd consider to be proud about.
BTW. Wouldn't it be time for slashdot to support accented letters already? Ã is a with two dots over it, pronounced like letter a in english word ash.

That's not the impression I get from all that's been happening up there in NK lately. They aren't behaving by anyone's definition of "rational".
Kim Jong-un trying to unite people behind him by building up imaginary foreign threat? Not exactly a novel idea or completely without rationale. He's a new leader, people are unsure of his power and some might want to take his place or get rid of him.
For all practical purpose, they are 100% unpredictable. You have no way of telling what they're going to do next.
Probably next he will just make more threaths. Threats don't kill, but they can coinvince some potential competitors in the political elite of NK that Kim Jong-un is not weak. Whatever the case the NK's dictator loves his power and using nukes would be the fastest way to throw it all away. He won't do that. It might sound stupid to people who like to dehumanize their opponents, but he's not crazy (as in irrational). It's ofcourse debatable if lust for power that goes beyond the needs of the people is sane, but then many if not all of our leaders are crazy.
