Comment reminds me... (Score 1) 138

Reminds me of the swedish transport agency. It has several publications on its website describing, in great detail, how a terrorist may steal and release dangerous goods from vehicles.
Counties is Sweden also have more localized publications describing where to find the dangerous goods and vunerable sites.

Still no-one is putting the information to terror use. Seems there is other ways of protecting the homeland...

Your comment is very true but you are thinking like a good engineer. To the sales department every released patch is a liability. Releasing patches without proper verification is neglecting "due diligence" (spelling?) and is a cause of getting you're ass sued to kingdom come. Pardon my french.

You just made me think of Aliens and that lovley MG-42 strapped to steadycam harness *sight*.

Think having a GE 7.62 mm minigun connected to this exoskeleton with proper regulating loops handling the spinup yaw and recoil. Strap the new ipod nano to it for the terminator-view http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUtC0OWhfEU&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fgizmodo.com%2F5355921%2Fvideo-shot-with-ipod-nano-our-first-clips%2Fgallery%2F&feature=player_embedded and play Rammstein. *fap* *fap* *fap*

Happened to me in 1986. A spring rain containing 200k bequerel per square meter...

But you got to remember that was from a reactor that had worked for five years straight. A freshly loaded reactor blowing up would only cause heavy-metal contamination like those tanks blown up by US forces all over the world (depleted uranium).

I've just finished evaluating approximatley 500kloc code using Coverity Prevent and Klocwork Insight (Static analysis tools). Together they found around 250 issues with the code. Null pointer dereferences, array boundary violations and a bunch of other nasty stuff.
How many of these do you think involved memcpy? - Nil, Zip, Nada.
