My bad, it's a Brazilian company, Geraflex.

At least one company (Verteflex) sells an ethanol-fueled generator around here. I dunno about small engine makers. If I recall correctly, Verteflex is an American company.
Yes, by law, the Brazilian equivalent of the IRS (literally, Federal Revenue Secretariat) has the right to inspect shipments at border control points. Sometimes they inspect, sometimes they don't. You usually get a note in the mailbox 'Your package is awaiting for collection at XYZ street, import duties R$ (obscene number here) must be paid'.
Add to that list massive internal debt, high inflation, sky high interest rates, slow economic growth, a bizarre, stupid and lazy justice system, high taxation, immense corruption,
Brazil doesn't resembles the 1950s US at all. And I wish really hard it did...
The only thing this is meant to accomplish is allowing the current administration to pose as being interested in protect some sort of "national sovereignty" and transferring some cash to government contractors - the standing Party needs cash to finance it's next run for the presidency. The half dead state owned phone company, Telebras, still exists despite having no customers. The government would finance the new cables, Telebras employees would get their kickbacks and funnel money into shady government contracts. Politics as usual with a little antiamericanism sauce.
A common factor in almost all Brazilian corruption scandals is that somehow the media gets access to "secret" telephone conversations: the country is already bugged (legally sometimes) by the Federal Police and (always illegally) by the Brazilian Intelligence Agency. It's not uncommon for the administration to leak data from legal and illegal bugs to pursue adversaries. It's scarily common and rarely protested by the general populace.
It disgusts me.
I just get "This site has been suspended" from the hosting provider. Anyone has alternative links to the pdfs?
XNU, the kernel that powers OS X, is a hybrid derivative of both Mach kernel and of the 4.3BSD kernel.
Originally developed by NeXT for the NeXTSTEP operating system, XNU was a hybrid kernel combining version 2.5 of the Mach kernel developed at Carnegie Mellon University with components from 4.3BSD and an object-oriented API for writing drivers called Driver Kit.
After Apple acquired NeXT, the Mach component was upgraded to 3.0, the BSD components were upgraded with code from the FreeBSD project and the Driver Kit was replaced with a C++ API for writing drivers called I/O Kit.
My mom is a tenured University professor and my stepfather is very, very smart structural engineer, now retired. They both call for tech support every once in a while. I'm quite sure - by the nature of the calls - they would be able to solve their problem themselves. But they like my wife and I coming over in the weekend for "helping them with their computer". The tech support call is nothing more than a "hey son, why don't you come over here?" call.
Maybe your dad do the same thing to you?
Older X11 application (like those built on Motif) are like that. They send a stream of primitives, so they're easily used over a network. But modern applications (like those built on Qt and GTK) use X11 as a screen buffer and instead of using X11 primitives, they just send large bitmaps to the X11 server. So modern X11 applications sucks when used over a network but older ones actually works fine.
Is it not completely possible that one intelligent man, $300 laptop, and an internet connection be just as "deadly" as any country's electronic warfare unit?
A large organization such a national electronic warfare unit is able to perform more target attacks: obtaining information about the target systems using other means such as human intelligence, coordinating a large team with multiple specialists (an exploit guy, a SCADA engineer,
While a single individual might be able to pull a highly targeted attack, it is considerably easier to a large organization to have the necessary budget to hire different specialists, coordinate with other agencies to leverage their resources, and so on.
There are two very different sets of requirements whether you need to cross or not the radiation belts. For low earth orbits, COTS equipment is fine for a short mission. For higher orbits, including direct lunar transfer or a Hoffman orbit transfer, radiation hardened equipment is a must.
Also the Android-running cubesat (by Surrey U (UK), not NASA, if I recall correctly) is just a inexpensive cubesat mission (under 50 or 60k USD, including launch costs) not an expensive lunar lander.

Funny, we do a lot of HPC and had some problems with Ivy Bridge. But I think it's just some hand optimizations for previous architectures gone wrong.
Anyone else had similar experiences?
