My wedding video tape original master too was affected seriously by mold. We were able to take it to India where they took the tape out of the cassette, cleaned the tape and re wound it in a new cassette. The tape was readable but quality of the video was severely degraded. If it is digital tape I dont think any useful info could be recovered.
Let us say his computer gets hacked and some unknown thirdparty finds all the dirty laundry. And this hacker blabs all over the media about the deal. Now the original developer is not responsible for the behavior of the hacker right? She/He is also a victim of the hacker. If the original developer is able to show that she/he was not negligent then she/he is off the hook.
I am not suggesting the original hacker to leak all information and blame it on Russian hackers
Another issue is how do I pay my neighbor kid to mow my lawn with a credit card?
You just venmo the cash. Yes venmo is a verb now. Add to the list of new verbs: google friend
In the end all the top brass will find some scape goat. "Our policy guidelines specifically state the security procedures followed should be of the highest order. They violated our guidelines and policy. They are solely responsible!". The people who write the guidelines to protect their rear ends get paid millions of dollars, and they also implement a pay/bonus/promotion/reward system where following the very same guidelines will make your performance very very bad. With a wink and a nod, knowing fully well their policies are not followed, they could not be followed, they exist only as a CMA shield, they carry on.
Unless we hold the fire the entire chain of command and dock their pay and bonus and clawback past bonuses and pay they would not change.
The customer records were contained in log files that were generated when Verizon customers in the last six months called customer service. These interactions are recorded, obtained, and analyzed by Nice, which says it can "realize intent, and extract and leverage insights to deliver impact in real time." Verizon uses that data to verify account holders and to improve customer service. Each record included a customer's name, a cell phone number, and their account PIN -- which if obtained would grant anyone access to a subscriber's account, according to a Verizon call center representative, who spoke on the condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak to the press.
Why would they record the pin in plain text in the log files? Irrespective of the leak to public domain, this would expose pins of all customers to all employees who can log in? Stupid to the core.
Hey look! The latest outrageous tweet. Keep chasing that like a dog chases the laser pointer dot.
Peak solar radiation is around 1 kW/m^2. Factor 0.5 for day/night, 0.5 for angle/latitude/overcast, 0.1 for efficiency of conversion, you get 25 W/m^2. Not too far from GP's 20 w/m^2
You need 40,000 sq km. 1 Rhode island?
Total paved area of USA, all the parking lots and roads is around 60,000 square miles, or 154,000 square km. So you need to pave 25% of all the paved area (roads and parking lots) of USA with solar panels to satisfy all the energy needs using solar alone.
If we choose to put it where the conversion efficiency is better, like Arizona or New Mexico or California we need much less than 40,000 sq km. Probably 16,000 sq km should be enough.
Solar power is 5W/m^2? The peak solar radiation is around 1050 W/m^2. The energy consumption 1 W/m^2 is also probably the peak energy consumption. If that is true, i would like to see the citation and dig through it.
