One thing to note is how vulnerable the old X.25 networks are.
You know what? This is actually starting to sound like a good way to do things.
The drawback is the maintenance time it would take, as new versions of the DB come out. That is absolutely the only drawback I can see.
When 30% of your own party thinks you ought to be indicted for a felony
They should re-ask that question now that she's a candidate. A lot of people may have changed their minds.
1) The massive "factory of death" southwest of al-Safira exploded last week, with a huge earthquake that rattled houses 50km away, was visible 75km away and audible 100km away. Hopefully that'll reduce the barrel bomb and elephant rocket attacks... at least somewhat...
That's cool, I missed that.
In the meantime, millions of people fly remotely operated small aircraft, with untold millions of hours in the air and more or less statistically non-existent rate of people on the ground getting hurt.
That's because they don't fly through populated areas.
Ideally things functional, insight-provoking, empathy-evoking, or maybe, just maybe, things constructive.
Sounds like a TED talk is your preferred form of entertainment.
But if you think bread and circuses
Bread and Circus is really just basic income with a Netflix subscription thrown in (or what passed for Netflix in their day. Really: read some history).
We already have a problem with actual planes falling out of the sky and hitting people on the head.
When was the last time that happened?
a species that subsists on celebrity gossip and other modern-day idiocies isn't really one that is worth much in the end.
What should a species 'subsist' on? You know, just wondering
I suppose people like you are the main problem.
I hate to tell this to you, but people like me are 99% of the population. You're not Gandhi.
What do you think a good security consultant would deliver, exactly?
A) actual skills, not just a script-kiddy with corporate backing.
B) when they were done, they would leave a place relatively more secure. For example, I can go to a place and say, "look, your windows are insecure, and if you put bars on the windows, it will be more secure." That will be 100% accurate, but not particularly useful, and in practice doesn't address most threats companies face.
C) the primary focus generally should be on securing against remote attacks, because that's where your highest exposure is. Anyone can plop down a wifi pineapple, but most people who do so are security consultants. In practice, black-hats favor remote exploits.
I think you meant to say "deserves", not "needs".
"From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs." Allotting according to "deserves" is what the Soviet Union did.
Can you explain why the doctor might "need" more than the waitress?
A doctor might not need more than a waitress.
