"Really? Looks to me like they've made their point. Unfortunately, no one really knows what that point is. All I've gotten from them is 'Wah! Rich people have more than we do!' "
Lots of people got the point. They must have paid attention to the news, or maybe to the signs the protesters are carrying. Just because "you" and the "media" you consume are saying "no one really knows what that point is" doesn't actually mean no ones knows what that point is.
Maybe if you repeat it some more.
Well I would assume that if the secure boot thing checks the keys of software that runs at boot, there would be some similar key based check done before something was flashed onto UEFI. This of course brings us back to the problem of just how reliable are digitally signed keys?
Another problem I have is that my gaming rig is always a Windows machine, and I'm okay with that. But then about every two years I build a new one, and the old one becomes a Linux machine of some flavor. If the way things shake out I'd have to build two machines to accomplish what I want, instead of just maintaining a machine whose only crime is still being worthwhile as a computer, just not a game machine.
I'm pretty sure diamond planets are just an evil scientist plot for wealth redistribution, primarily to put DeBeers out of business.
No ASM programming?
Enjoy being useless when you need to work at the bare-metal level.
Also, enjoy being dog-ass slow and having boated code.
For a perfect example of why ASM rocks, see MenuetOS.
In everyone's defense, the question asked wasn't about languages, but about books. I can't (and this isn't surprising) think of any legendary ASM programming books. I am currently enjoying trying to work my way through Assembly Language Step-by-Step: Programming with Linux, Third Edition by Jeff Duntemann.
If you want to, please reply with other good ones I should check out.
Destroy it? I doubt that. But if they bring it to its knees for just a few hours. Well, hell, that'll bring a smile to my face.
And then I'll change my password. Again.
So on Slashdot we have to tell people who Alan Turing was, but we can just randomly spout off the names of (what I'm assuming to be) little known software packages?
Come on, guys.
Alan Turing was the gay guy in Cryptonomicon, right?
I quite enjoyed Halle Berry's tits.
I was underwhelmed. I expected better.
You make a much better point than I did. I need to go back to not posting on
So you're assuming that there are no gay nerds who might have interest in discussing this story with their fellow nerds? Or maybe there's no nerds in the military who might? Or even that there might be no gay nerds in the military?
Here's a better idea for you. Shut the fuck up.
No, it wouldn't. I'm not a physicist (or fond of trite acronyms), but I don't think that a handful of particles resuming a state they once held would be destructive. For that to happen, ALL of the particles would have to resume that state. The LHC is pretty cool, but I don't think it's strong enough to turn the clock back on all the matter in the universe.
