SuperPuTTY is a very nice tabbed window extension for PuTTY. I use it extensively.
"never reveal the secrets of power to someone who's not intelligent enough to figure them out for themselves"
By that logic, powerful things like The Wheel and Fire may never have spread to cause the kinds of trouble they cause today.
Seriously, though, I don't think we've really done that badly with nuclear technology. Yes, we've made weapons that could wipe out humanity if used on a global scale, but so far, we've also managed to hold off on using them. The argument that they've SAVED lives by being too horrible to use, thus indefinitely delaying WW3 can be made.
I'm not saying that you should necessarily hand over things to the Pentagon (or any other military organization, for that matter), but publishing them should be a no-brainer. People are going to mis-use knowledge, but as a whole, it also helps billions of people.
Perhaps Lithium is radioactive, but with a 2 billion year half-life? Perhaps all the elements are, but with much longer half-lifes, and everything will end up as hydrogen again before the ultimate heat death of the universe.

I'm a wireless engineer (but not a WiFi engineer), so I might just check out that book. Thanks!
What a great, informative reply! I learned something. So rare on Slashdot lately.
So, is 802.11ac a polling MAC layer?
If only I had mod points. This is so Insightful it hurts.

Everyone should be required to take a single class, if for no better reason than to teach them A) some basic logic, and B) what's going on behind the scenes in the technology they use every day. And there's should be electives available every year, similar to band/orchestra/wood shop.
