President can't exclude sections of a law just to suit his own ideals.
I agree with you but consider the ramifications.
Obama let federal laws go unenforced and some of those arent going to be enforced under Trump either. For instance Trump has said marijuana legalization is a State issue not a Federal issue and that he will continue to neglect to enforce Federal marijuana laws. Obama didnt enforce them for different reasons.
On a Federal statute level, our laws rank the crime of possession of schedule 1 substances such as marijuana as worse than murder.
The problem is far too many federal laws. At some point there are so many that the executive branch will have to pick and choose even if they dont want to. We are probably well past that point. I'm sitting in an apartment that probably isnt big enough to store a printed copy of our federal laws.
We spent about $1400 on our machines
So is this really all they are saying: they read stack space that is unused to get info that may have been left there from other threads because of the way cache isn't cleared
No. You arent even close to what they are saying.
The attack vector talked about is measuring the time it takes to read memory addresses. Code that has been executed recently will be in the cpu's cache(s) and therefore can be read faster.
Can I ask why someone with such poor comprehension on technical matters in reading slashdot?
Keeping the locations of things in memory unpredictable so that, for example, if I am trying to exploit some arbitrary code execution flaw I can't count that my code will end up in the place I want or expect it.
Close but not quite right.
Its so that you can't count on OS/Host code being at a specific address. Your own code doesnt need to care what address its loaded at, even if its nefarious (every architecture has relative jump instructions.) The idea is that something like the browsers file i/o routines arent being placed at a predictable address, so your nefarious code cant just branch directly into them.
Its better than not doing it, but not entirely effective w.r.t. its purpose.
As Jonah Goldberg pointed out, the 'Never Trump' movement is dead (at least on the GOP side), and all Republicans are happily working w/ him.
The Democrats are also working with him. For instance Kaine voted to confirm 7 of his cabinet picks.
and the ridiculous decision of the FBI to start an investigation right then certainly had an effect too.
They said a Nation State tried to influence our election.
The FBI works for a Nation State, and was headed by a Republican.
The IRS and DOJ have both also gotten fingered trying to influence our elections, both headed by Democrats.
Intentionally selective outrage makes you a pretender.
Things equal to nothing else are equal to each other.
