What's the existing license? Is this a migration from copyleft to a more permissive license, or is this a migration from an unusual license (some kind of openbsd license?) to something more standard?
Oracle is proud to extend its collaboration with the OpenSSL Foundation by relicensing its contributions of elliptic curve cryptography
What company that Oracle has bought originally contributed this?
Bullshit. Modern diseases are not caused by foods that have been eaten for hundreds of thousands of years. They've been caused by modern processed crap such as sugar, white flour and industrial vegetable oils.
A lot of them have been caused by the fact that without modern medicine, we wouldn't survive long enough to experience them.
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.
At these prices, I lose money -- but I make it up in volume. -- Peter G. Alaquon
