Why are there no botnets of Mac or Linux machines? It's all Windows.
I know Windows is more "popular". Is that why the popular girls and guys always are infected?
Since most Mac and Linux machines run without any anti-virus software, you would think they would be easy targets... unless, of course, there was something about the OS itself which was better than Windows (duh).
Also, you have to stop blaming the users for the problems with Windows. I don't think Mac or Linux users are any smarter but they seem to avoid these nasty infections.
Why are there no botnets of Mac or Linux machines? It's all Windows.
I haven't used Windows in years but I thought that Microsoft was trying to make Windows more secure... I guess that was just PR.
I can't believe that people put up with all the malware on Windows... it has to be a huge security threat.
I click ads on Slashdot (even though I could disable them) in order to support the site. I've even bought stuff this way.
According to this BI article: http://www.businessinsider.com/the-high-tech-gps-tracker-that-is-a-game-changer-for-police-2013-11
"High-speed pursuits cause nearly 400 deaths a year and cost the government more than a billion dollars a year in damages, lawsuits, and medical bills."
"... Fischbach says that in most pursuits a minimum of $3,000 in property damage occurs."
Would be much easier and better to just not start a high speed chase in the first place and avoid the risk of police mayhem.
I liked this idea much better:
Just zap the perp with a GPS and follow him at leisure.
My ATT DSL is 3 Mb/s down and 300 Kb/s up, you insensitive clod.
Some years ago when I moved my company into a new office and wanted to keep the cost down, I installed rain gutters (and occasional downspout) on the walls inside to run telephone and ethernet. It was inexpensive compared to official cable trays and hid the wiring nicely.
Gutters are standard architectural details and since they are very visible you can find nice looking designs and colors.
So your point is...?
- We should all just shut up like good sheeple?
- We should learn to like spying?
- Torture is good!
- They are saving us from the terrorists!
- Lady Gaga?

A postdoc to teach at a community college?
Our local community college is staffed with M.S. and M.A. (and no PhD's or postdocs).
"Why the hell?"
Yes, indeed, nuclear.
Why the hell?... the Price Anderson Act, which limits the liability of the nuclear industry in case of a serious nuclear accident — leaving taxpayers on the hook for potentially hundreds of billions in compensation costs;
Why the hell?... federal disposal of nuclear waste in a permanent repository, which will save the industry billions at taxpayer expense;
Why the hell? and licensing regulations, wherein the report recommends that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission further grease the skids of its quasi-judicial licensing process to preclude successful interventions from opponents.
Why the hell has the nuclear industry receive over $100 billion in subsidies?
Why the hell?: the energy bill has the federal government providing loan guarantees covering 50 percent of the cost of building 8,400 Megawatts of new nuclear power, the equivalent of six or seven new power plants. The Congressional Research Service estimated that these loan guarantees alone would cost taxpayers $14 to $16 billion. The Congressional Budget Office believes “the risk of default on such a loan guarantee to be very high — well above 50 percent.
Why the hell?
In 2005, the Energy Policy Act provided another $13 billion of subsidies, tax incentives and other support for the nuclear power industry. It also created the energy loan guarantee program.
In December 2007, Congress and George W. Bush approved $20.5 billion in nuclear loan guarantees under this program ($18.5 billion for new atomic reactors, $2 billion for new uranium enrichment facilities).
Construction subsidies ~ $3.25 billion + $18.5 billion in loan guarantees
$18.5 billion in loan guarantees for new reactors. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the default rate is “very high – well above 50 percent.”
Authorization of $2 billion in “risk insurance” to pay the industry for any delays in construction and operation licensing for 6 new reactors, including delays due to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission or litigation. The payments would include interest on loans and the difference between the market price and the contractual price of power.
Authorization of more than $1.25 billion for a nuclear reactor in Idaho to generate hydrogen fuel
Operating subsidies ~ $5.7 billion + Limited Liability
Reauthorization of the Price-Anderson Act, extending the industry’s liability cap to cover new nuclear power plants built in the next 20 years
Incentives for “modular” reactor designs (such as the pebble bed reactor, which has never been built anywhere in the world) by allowing a combination of smaller reactors to be considered one unit, thus lowering the amount that the nuclear operator is responsible to pay under Price-Anderson
Production tax credits of 1.8-cent for each kilowatt-hour up to 6,000 megawatts of nuclear-generated electricity from new reactors during the first 8 years of operation, costing $5.7 billion in revenue losses to the U.S. Treasury through 2025
Radioactive waste subsidies ~ $22 billion thus far + guaranteed waste removal
DOE-utility contracts guaranteeing that the nuclear waste will be removed from the site within 10 year of shutdown or the US taxpayer pays for spend fuel storage costs
One mil (one-tenth of one cent) per kilowatt-hour paid by ratepayers receiving electricity from nuclear reactors to pay for a geologic repository for the spent fuel; the Nuclear Waste Fund currently has $22 billion
Shut-down subsidies ~ $1.3 billion
Changes the rules for nuclear decommissioning funds that are to be used to clean up closed nuclear plant sites by repealing the cost of service requirement for contributions to a fund and allowing the transfer of pre-1984 decommissioning costs to a qualified fund, costing taxpayers $1.3 billion
If oil and coal and nuclear are so great, why do they need subsidies?
You do seem to have "issues".
Have you talked to your therapist?
Why do you fear Wolfram?
Has Mathematica intimidated you?
Are you afraid that Wolfram will take over your life?
Wolfram Mathematica and the Wolfram language will be included in the Raspbian distribution. Raspbian is the standard recommended distribution that most people install. There are other OS distributions, of course, such as XBMC for specialized uses.
TFA States it will be bundled as part of the standard operating system for the Raspberry Pi. It doesn't state it will be on every Pi.

I have the cheap Chinese QI chargers and they work great.
They don't have the magnetic positioning so you do have to take a little more care in setting it down but they give a little beep when connected so it's easy.
