If every bank involved agrees the invalid signature is valid, what happens to the money?
Stealing a coin here or there from a wallet that hasn't been touched in a while would be more "practical", and for all we know, is being done now.
Anyone can audit the blockchain, not just miners.
It'd be possible to find every bitcoin not traded in the past 3 years, assert it "lost" then the attacker fraudulently claim them with the attack given, and it's possible he could liquidate after the theft without anyone noticing until he's cashed out.
It's not just miners checking the transactions.
When a single person has control of the blockchain long enough
How would they do that without the private keys?
I know it was demonstrated awhile back that a rabbit kidney could be cryopreserved and then restored to function.
Seriously, the longer I live, the more it seems plausible that one day it will be possible to cryopreserve a human brain and restore it to function later. One day human lifespan may be greatly extended in a way that looks like this:
McCoy: "He's dead, Jim."
Kirk: "Bones, do something!"
McCoy: "Sorry, Jim, there isn't anything I can do."
McCoy: "Because he's dead."
Kirk: "How do you know he's dead?"
McCoy: "Because there's nothing I can do."
Kirk: "Because he's dead?"
McCoy: "That's right."
Kirk: "But I was talking to him just one minute ago!"
McCoy: "Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor not a spiritual medium! I can't bring back the dead anymore than I can cure a common cold."
Spock: "Doctor, we could take him back to the ship, dissolve any blood clots, restore circulation, and restore homeostasis by molecular repair. He could fully resume duty within days."
McCoy: "Spock, leave doctoring to doctors! What this man needs is a decent burial."
Step outside of the pedantic bubble and experience causal conversation.
In his defense, that's hard for nearly all of us here, myself included!
Sigh. 11 months (340 days is a hell of a lot closer to that than it is to 12 months) is in no way shape or form "one year".
It's 0.9315 years. How many significant digits do you want on that?
(Actually given that his year in space included February 29, it might be more accurate to say it was 0.92896 years.
Some of India's top IT firms
When I don't want to work for a company any more, I don't continue to follow its policies for three months just because they tell me to. What are the consequences for not complying, and what is enabling these companies to impose those consequences?
Individual choice is fine if all the consequences are borne by that individual.
And they should be. We have a criminal justice system to make sure that happens in the case of drunk drivers, and taxpayers should stop paying for obesity related diabetes (because taxpayers should have individual choice as to where their money goes).
We can't trust ordinary people to have choices.
Because if they do the consequences will be
It starts by abandoning NASA's expensive Space Launch System and Orion capsule, and spending the money saved on private-industry efforts like Elon Musk's SpaceX and Robert Bigelow's Bigelow Aerospace
I'm sure suddenly throwing a bunch more government money at private space efforts won't change those projects in the least or make them more expensive or anything like that.
What about the tests?
This is crypto-currency, the hot new thing tests are for old fogeys who still use dollars. Get with the times, young programmers are Agile, they don't plan and test their work, they release early and often. They release the Minimum Viable Product (minimum piece of shit they can get away with for a moment), it's illegal now to even think about corner cases and make code robust.
I don't know about ZCash, but Bitcoin has an extensive regression test suite and test mode. And test-first development is a principle of agile, so I'm not sure why you concluded agile programmers don't test.
Further there are people that lump Libertarians in as Alt-Right (as in they're not establishment conservatives).
Yes, but we libertarians are usually pretty offended by it. And the truth is that the beliefs and focuses are very different.
Ever notice that even the busiest people are never too busy to tell you just how busy they are?
