Those are high stakes, Mr. Bond.
Joel Spolsky nailed it years ago. Whenever you change your arbitrary quality or quantiry metric, people change how to game the metrics by which they are rewarded.
What kind of office encourages proofreading? This article author Ryan Faas needs to work in that environment.
Today, CNET gave a poor review to a computing system that runs an OS not written by Microsoft. Film at 11.
30nm would be awesome for prototypes and low-count manufacture. Hell, 32nm was the limit of photolithography not too many years ago. Not that it'd be as easily done as said, but if you could build 30nm or even 60nm node one-off chips in an industrial design office or university lab that'd be plenty small enough.
Anyone who thinks you get more security by giving up more privacy is entirely mistaken. You don't get security by giving up privacy. You get it in large part by successfully protecting your privacy.
Just ask the DoD, CIA, NSA, FBI, etc etc etc. The ability to have a secret is fundamental to security.

Microsoft Windows Authenticode Portable Executable Signature Format Specification
Note: This specification is provided to aid in the development of certain development tools for the Microsoft Windows platform. However, Microsoft does not guarantee that it is a complete specification in all respects, and cannot guarantee the accuracy of any information presented after the date of publication. Microsoft reserves the right to alter this specification without notice.
Microsoft will grant a royalty-free license, under reasonable and non-discriminatory terms and conditions, to any Microsoft patent claims (if any exist) that Microsoft deems necessary for the limited purpose of use in software tools to generate digital signatures and in EFI firmware to verify the signatures, each exclusively in Portable Executable and Common Object File Format images.
Complying with all applicable copyright laws is the responsibility of the user. Without limiting the rights under copyright, no part of this specification may be reproduced, stored in or introduced into a retrieval system, modified or used in a derivative work, or transmitted in any form or by any means (electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording, or otherwise), or for any purpose, without the express written permission of Microsoft.
Microsoft may have intellectual property rights covering subject matter in this specification. Except as expressly provided in any written license agreement from Microsoft, the furnishing of this specification does not give you any license to any intellectual property rights, and no other rights are granted by implication, estoppel, or otherwise.
So, of course Microsoft would love to put code implementing parts of the PE spec into the Linux kernel. You can't even read the spec without agreeing to a license. They don't guarantee you the chance to use any patents that encumber the spec without paying royalties, even though they promise those fees will be fair and unbiased.
They may have lost a list of emails that could now be hit by spammers. It's doubtful they actually have the passwords for anyone's contact email on file.
Titan International is based in Quincy, Illinois. Having lived in Quincy, Illinois for years and having done business with Titan, International I can tell you they are not slave drivers. Taylor is a hard ass. He does expect hard work. He does take issue with certain unions but he's willing to work with them when they are making reasonable demands for concessions. No, he's not some out of touch elitist.
Taylor owns (or at least did own, maybe it's been sold) a rock radio station because he wanted the town to have music on FM radio that he likes. The station's nickname is his nickname: "The Grizz". He ran for the Republican nomination for president in the past, and IIRC he was the only candidate to do so who could tell reporters the price of a loaf of bread or gallon of milk.
Morry's gruff and doesn't mind hurting some feelings, but he's not trying to keep people down. He comes from a hard-working background and he expects hard work for good pay. His factories offer some of the highest blue-collar pay in the areas they are located. His office staff aren't exactly underpaid either. I found doing contract and freelance work for them to be pretty much a fair deal even when we weren't in perfect agreement on terms. They were working on meeting their interests and I was working on mine.
People read your journal here, though, so that's a difference.
Seriously, if you want a helpdesk job at a place that trains people and promotes from within to administer Linux servers and you live in or want to live in Houston or Austin PM me. Also, if you know enough to be an entry-level Linux application troubleshooter or mail/web/DNS admin definitely let me know. Relocation assistance is possible for some positions. I could definitely use another referral bonus, and we're always hiring (just some times more than others).
(Modern versions of) Perl can work with UTF- 8 just fine, too. That makes it even more of a shame.
No. Internal systems that are secure do not get compromised by rouge clients.
Could it be that someone used Java in the browsers to snatch credentials from users on their local machines? Sure.
Could someone infect a browser and that cause Twitter's network to be insecure? No.
A CNC machine already exists and doesn't look like part of a human. Slashdot loves new things, robots, things that cut, things that are overly powerful, and things that seem dangerous. Honestly, a CNC milling, cutting, and routing machine could often use something like a chainsaw in its initial steps to speed things up. This guy might have inspired something useful.
tl;dr : CNC is useful, but a robot with a chainsaw is fucking cool
That's because IBM thought carefully about things like this when they were involved in PC software. They wrote a standard.
