It's not even as if Java is a huge security problem today. It's effectively been click-to-play by default in all major browsers for a long time, and the plug-in itself then has a bunch more security safeguards before it will trust remote code to do just about anything.
Agree. Expensive enterprise software often relies on applets, that's the way it is and how it will remain for some years.
Now if Java or browsers had the ability to whitelist Java applets, then for an enterprise with control over its own applets, I actually don't see any particular security problem with applets running within a browser. Why not allow enterprises to run software they control and trust?
I just checked my IP address and it's 192.168.1.102.
That explains my IP address conflicts. Thanks a lot!
The four Galilean moons are interesting from an evolutionary POV. Io - Molten sulphur on the surface, purple volcanoes all over it. Europa - Deep water ocean, thin crust, very active plate tectonics. Ganymede - Europa with a deep dish crust and cooler core. Callisto - A rock.
Yes, I imagine the birds will have quite different types of beaks.
The real problem is that people *want* to see creative, aesthetically pleasing and different designs when browsing the web.
Speak for yourself. When I browse the web I want different types of information.
... all of the many small bridges in the region are specifically designed to be washed away easily. It's simply cheaper to build them new ones after every serious flood.
The Icelandic director of transport states in this mornings paper that "bridges are expensive". Just rebuilding two particular bridges that are candidates for being washed away would cost roughly 25 million USD. In addition there's the disruption and inconvenience until some rudimentary bridges have been put in place.
The plan is therefore to try to save the bridges. If necessary, heavy machinery will be used to dig the roads apart the allow the flood to go that way. Rebuilding roads is a comparatively quick and painless process.
