IEEE is a rotten paywall and should be abolished.
The patent detail has nothing to do with the subject. It's a variable coil that's depicted, signalized by the arrow cursor ( like a potentiometer, but a coil)
The article is marketing wank.
>> ALL the kernel code is assembly on Linux and BSD, some of it is just raw assembly,
Yes, but the compiler is a few orders of magnitude more reliable than a human when generating assembly
>> people bitch and moan about YT ads
Which Youtube ads ?
I don't see any.
Strange country you're living in
>> The open sourcing of
it's not open source. You're basically not allowed to do anything with the source other cthan the use MS defined. I would rather call that "available source"
>>Nobody ever got fired for buying Microsoft.
Nobody got fired for using Linux either.
We don't care about Software patents. Software patents apply only in the USA. For the rest of the world, they are irrelevant.
>>Exactly. GPL is just as bad
Why would GPL be bad ? The GPL world works. It gains users every day.
as I said, it's not good. For correctly done security, no single organization should be in position to spoof you. Whatever the price. ( since when is price indicative of quality ??)
I don't do implementation details. Of course, the whole cert chain system needs reword. But we already know that.
>>registrars between you and the root can spoof you.
It would be much better to require two (or more) cert chains at the same time that won't cooperate.
For example, take a cert from USA, North Korea, and India. You could only be spoofed if theese 3 CAs or their intermediary cooperate.
>>How often do you stop and look at which CA
Every time. There are addons that do exactly that. Use them.
"The two main debris fields are the ring of objects in GEO and the cloud of objects in low Earth orbit (LEO)"
it's not a problem of the same magnitude than LEO, but it will become one once you put up "square kilometers arrays of photocells or mylar reflectors". These things will just disintegrate at the smallest impact, and create a large debris cloud. This is why orbital mylar baloons are obsolete since long.
No, it's possible. But it's a trade off with safety.
>> because solar panels dont generate weapons-grade plutonium?
Yep, that's an argument.
Although, nuke plants don't generate weapon grade Pu. They just generate Pu.
