Learning how to use tools effectively is not the same thing as developing software for the business at home. I've often done the former, but never done the latter. If you want something for the office, you pay me. Up front.
I agree. Someone once told me I should not go out at night, walk naked (except for a hundred dollar bill pasted to each of my nipples) to the highest-crime district in my city, and start yelling "Some of my best friends are you people!" They said I would be safer if I behaved differently, stayed home instead, and STFU-ed up with my crazy rants.
I explained that even if I behaved differently, that doesn't stop the Russians from launching a nuclear ICBM strike, killing us all, including me. Safe is safe, unsafe is unsafe, there are no degrees in between, and all of us face one single adversary who has one simple agenda.
Hopefully they weren't stupid enough to roll their own key format, and instead, they use standard OpenPGP keys. That way, people can have MitM-proof verified-identity conversations if they want that (and can tune the degree of MitM-proofing that is needed) but also have MitM-vulnerable pseudonymous conversations if they don't (for cases where you'd prefer to be anonymous).
When you're talking to your wife, it's ok for her to know who you are, and you to know you're talking to her, so you'd use the keys that you've exchanged out-of-band and that each of you have signed. When you're talking to your pirate buddies, you just to have the keyid that has in the past, been associated with uber-31337ness, but has never been signed by anyone. And when you're talking to another person in the company, you know who each other is and have at least some company CA as your introducer, any maybe signed yourselves too if it's a small enough company where everyone eventually meets each other in person.
Whatever your case, OpenPGP fits perfectly. The only thing it doesn't handle well, is tricking users into thinking they have a secure connection but really letting a third party listen in. For some reason, PGP isn't well-suited for that. Whenever I see someone not use PGP, I assume that's the reason they chose to use weaker tech.
Federal Reserve Act + 16th Amendment + Declaration of War, 6 April 1917 + Selective Service Act.
Between 1911 and 1917, the entire system was mechanically produced. All that remained was incremental turning of the gears.
The term "Christian" means so many different things to so many different people that it doesn't have much meaning at all any more.
There, that is your arrogance, right there. It has TREMENDOUS meaning for those who identify themselves as Christians. This is true even if it does not serve your purposes of taxonomy. The taxonomist is the most onerous of oppressors, along with the statistician.
That's where borders on the kingdom come in handy.
Finally someone took the time to provide a concise explanation of WTF it means for supersymmetry to be disproven.
What I'm not interested in is smug assholes claiming "it's in the summary" when it's not.
Yeah, but the summary nor the article explain why supersymmetry is a question or an issue in the first place, just that the evidence doesn't support the theory. What does the theory it disproves mean/change?
If his Geek Card is still valid, then yes, I'm sure he does.
He probably gets a hell of a giggle out of the ranting fanbois on all sides of the arguments now that he's retired from the industry...
Maybe because he wanted to give her something memorable instead of just donating to charity in her name?
Personally I'd think that note and photo were the far more valuable portion of the gift. For anyone who collects things like signatures, it'd be a family treasure. I know I'd be framing it and putting it on the wall, as proof that I once was contacted by the elusive Bill Gates.
I'm getting more involved in mobile development - and I need to be able to do work for Android and Mac - so that means I'll be picking up my first Apple machine this year. I'm still trying to decide if I'll get a Mac Mini or a MacBook Air.
I'll need to make up my mind by February. Reading that you like yours helps me feel a little better about it. If I didn't need to be able to build stuff for iOS I wouldn't be buying one.
The video issue with this Linux box is fine. It's a very inexpensive Acer with a pretty small case so I new my expansion options would be limited. I just wish Intel sold video cards because if they did, I would be all over that.
