Probably the same thing that happens to the ketchup residue that clings to today's bottles.
Cryptographic hash functions like SHA-1 are a cryptographer’s swiss army knife. You’ll find that hashes play a role in browser security, managing code repositories, or even just detecting duplicate files in storage. Hash functions compress large amounts of data into a small message digest. As a cryptographic requirement for wide-spread use, finding two messages that lead to the same digest should be computationally infeasible. Over time however, this requirement can fail due to attacks on the mathematical underpinnings of hash functions or to increases in computational power. Today, 10 years after of SHA-1 was first introduced, we are announcing the first practical technique for generating a collision.
If only something similar would happen with operating systems....
I'd bet that most people would prefer it if Microsoft were still resting on its Windows 7 laurels.
Historically the A: drive was the floppy drive (not really floppy, but don't get me started on that).
When the "A:" terminology was invented, the disks and their containers really were floppy.
What, you're talking about fifth-order technology with no nods to Richard Seaton and Martin Crane? I think I'll just leave it at that, and see how old this makes me.
We saw Mordor sinking at the end of "Return of the King", so that must be the rest of the missing NZ continent.
Another reason to ban beer: It would cost the taxpayers several thousand dollars to launch a pint of beer into LEO. The bill for a small Superbowl party on the ISS would easily exceed the average US worker's annual salary.
If they're going to send up any booze, make it 190 proof grain alchohol. That would only cost about $100 per drink.
Better yet, ditch the whole manned space flight boondoggle and use the savings to fund more real space science.
People are going to be scrambling for privacy after every sheet of drywall on the planet has been consumed by these voracious microbes.
Keep it classy.
Since it's such an arduous process to track down a physical example of a classic arcade game, purchase it, get it delivered, then rip its ROM to obtain a legal image, it shouldn't be too hard to remember the 8.3 filename you give it.
In my day, we had a simple and effective way to judge algorithms:
O(n log(n)) or faster: good
O(n^2) or slower: bad
In an ideal world, developers of this newly emerging industry would try to avoid the mistakes of the past. They would gravitate towards one of the "safer" low-level languages such as Rust or Ada instead of C.
Of course, from the news headlines it seems that IoT developers are already intent on recreating every bad security practice that's been described since the Morris Worm. So I'm not holding my breath.
I've seen you do this before. I'm not wasting my time going down your semantic rat hole.
The preconceived conclusions are so thoroughly baked in to your reactionary mind that there is no possible external input of information from the real world that could ever cause you to admit that you're wrong.
I've noticed several design suggestions in your code.
