I thought hydroelectricity was not considered clean by the USA, creating a weird situation with Quebec's overproduction exports (among others maybe)...
I'd prefer something a bit less bulky than the G15, which has a raised area at the top for media controls and a tiny screen. I don't mind a thicker bottom bezel so much. I'm not a huge fan of ergonomic/split keyboards, but if you know a really excellent one, I wouldn't rule it out. Same with mechanical keyboards — love the action, but the noise is an issue. I don't need any particular bells and whistles, but don't mind them. As for a budget... as I said, it's for a heavy-use machine, so I don't mind investing in great hardware. (That said, if I'm spending $150+, it better automatically make sure all my semicolons are in the right place.) So, what keyboard has served you well?
Those who did specialize in computer science early on, after high school let's say, tend to not understand physics / chemistry / biology / etc. as well, and it shows.
That doesn't mean they are anti-science / anti-global-warming or anything like that, just that the rest depends more on ambiant politic than critical use of scientific knowledge when shown scientific studies...
What they really want is white box cryptography, but it seems computationally impractical right now.
Also, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T... did this and was broken!
You do need HTTPS to protect mundane content: Saying otherwise is very short sighted...
You might not care about the content, but the way someone, somewhere, is accessing it, does offer a lot of "value".
It can allow a watchful eye to either accuse the reader of being outside the norm, criminal, not respectful and whatnot (reason why librarians fought hard for the right to lend books without giving the list to the state!) or allow them to caracterise, profile, target a person over time for many different reasons.
Thus everyone should have the to right to read anonymously and willingly.
Witholding this right from others is being complicit with opressors.
Encryption has a cost, it isn't free. It increases CPU utilisation and power consumption. It interferes with caching and reduces network efficiency.
This is a dumb idea. A very dumb idea.
