Unless a person is willing to become a Darwin Contestant, they won't use it. I sure as hell won't. Fingerprint biometrics are barely reliable in a lab situation. I can't imagine anyone putting up for this sort of crap going out to do some work. It's just more feel-good bullshit from someone who's never pulled the trigger for real.
Agile development is an excuse for developers to ignore the basics of documented what they are doing and why they did it in that manner. It make repeatability almost impossible and make reuse of code and processes harder.
I first read that passage just after first Tet in '68. It was true when RAH penned it, and remains true today.
The only thing wrong with the government is the government.
What a fucked up place. Long, long ago, I was a proponent of "My country, right or wrong."
As I grew older that changed to distaste and then disgust with home and foreign policies.
Of late, it's become a cancer eating at my soul. What the fuck happened to America?
When I went off to the military I was so damned naive that I wish I could bitch slap my younger self.
I am activating my ace in the hole, which is a dual-citizenship courtesy of my immigrant parents (yes, they arrived with residence visas in-hand and obtained green cards).
There's nothing here worth saving.

Oh, didn't you get the email about the upgrade? Man, it must have gone to your spam box by mistake.
It's too bad that the offer ended last week. Sorry...
It should be possible to remove the dust using static electricity. Back in the vinyl LP days, there were a couple of systems that used static electricty to make dust "jump" off an LP. Considering the system's cost and that it was a consumer product, there's probably "professional" version that does the job quite well.
Holy crap. There have been dozens of moon/asteroid/airless-planet habitat ideas published since the 40's. While not all of them were well reasoned and possible, a huge number of them were. All that was lacking when the stories were written was a way to get there and the material technology to build the damned things. Most of those issues were resolved decades back.
Don't hail the sintered dome idea a new, unless you want to be in the same category as people raving about "new and improved" dish detergent. The idea's already been written about. But then, so have most of the habitat ideas.
