... Teach a man to fish, and you've turned him into a habitual liar.
"We have put the keys in alphabetical order"
Yes, we all remember the good old alphabet: "...ghZij..." WTF?
It is still considered extremely dorky to wear a phone headset outside of a car. We would have to come up with a whole new range of adjectives to describe the level of dorkiness associated with wearing one of these. I doubt it will catch on before it becomes less visible than an earpiece...
The product is clearly a knockoff
True, but flushing CPU cache is many orders of magnitude faster than writing to disk. Except they probably want to use this technology to merge disk and RAM.
You've missed an important point here. Non-volatile RAM means than powering off does not imply a reboot. When power returns the next morning, or after the weekend, the computer is still in the same state as when you pulled the plug Friday evening.
No. If it gets 100 times worse, it's still not as bad as Chernobyl.
Revealing 10.5 bits of information about yourself will place you in one of roughly 1500 groups, not in a group of size 1500. With more than 1.5 billion internet users, you are "identified" as being in a group of 1 million.
I guess someone thought it would be an effective way to prevent piracy
Once you've started a legitimate copy of a game, what process do they figure will turn the copy into an illegitimate one during gameplay?
I am guessing someone starting the game with the same credentials. Steam allows you to install your games on several computers, but only play on one at a time. This is done by only allowing one Steam client to connect with a given username. This can be circumvented by starting a game, and then disconnecting from the internet. The Ubisoft fix is to require continuous connectivity, which then ruins the game for those of us with an unstable internet conne...
the pipe! otherwise these commands are pretty limited.
That sounds like a 60's war movie quote...
It is pretty easy to get within the error margins these guys are working with. Assuming you are testing on a uniform sample of the population, you would be right more than 90% of the time by saying "not gay".
since most all Linux distros can be downloaded anonymously for free from many servers/mirrors around the world there is no way of knowing for sure...
Penguinpeople always read from a single file to hide there numbers.

robots.txt is not for security. Using it as such is the same as protecting your sensitive data by writing "DONT READ" in the top. Even worse, if you do rely on it, you provide a public list of what might be interesting on your site.
What kind of backup do you need?
0 K = DAMN COLD!
10 K = DAMN COLD!
20 K = DAMN COLD!
30 K = DAMN COLD!
40 K = DAMN COLD!
50 K = DAMN COLD!
200K = Pee freezes before hitting the ground
400K = Pee evaporates before hitting the ground
"Twice as hot" only makes sense in a scientific context. It is akin to saying that one computer is twice as blue as another.
