Or alternatively, a moron politician that cannot be punished for an exceptionally stupid mistake was told by accident and then thought it was a good idea to tell the whole world. But outside of that, giving away a valuable source like the ability to decrypt WhatsApp is not likely to happen, I completely agree. The only other reason I see is because that ability was already about to become public.

From the right angle turns on the entrance, it can obviously do that.as long as the rectangular structure fits inside the proscribed sphere the machine can reach.

However, pipes and domes are actually stronger than boxes tho they have more waste space unless your furniture is custom fitted (like a TV table with a rounded back).

My question is how much does the foam cost?
If it costs $20,000 to print $12,000 worth of the house then that's not worth much.

Is it made from renewable materials?
If it's not, it won't scale up to the global population.


Wikipedia Is Being Blocked In Turkey (turkeyblocks.org) 58

Nine hours ago, Ilgaz wrote: The Turkey Blocks monitoring network has verified restrictions affecting the Wikipedia online encyclopedia in Turkey. A block affecting all language editions of the website [was] detected at 8:00AM local time Saturday 29 April. The loss of availability is consistent with internet filters used to censor content in the country.
stikves added Access to Wikipedia has been blocked in Turkey as a result of "a provisional administrative order" imposed by the Turkish Telecommunications Authority (BTK)... Turkey Blocks said an administrative blocking order is usually expected to precede a full court blocking order in coming days. While the reason for the order was unknown early on Saturday, a statement on the BTK's website said: "After technical analysis and legal consideration based on the Law Nr. 5651, ADMINISTRATION MEASURE has been taken for this website (wikipedia.org) according to Decision Nr. 490.05.01.2017.-182198 dated 29/04/2017 implemented by Information and Communication Technologies Authority."
The BBC adds reports from Turkish media that authorities "had asked Wikipedia to remove content by writers 'supporting terror.'"
