(1) Investigate safety critical devices for security flaws until you find one
(2) Short sell the manufacturer of the flawed device
While I don't see anything illegal here, I'd want the advice of a good lawyer before putting it into practice.
For all but a handful of years in my life (and every year for the last two decades) I've had a planet in the way of viewing Perseids.
On the bright side, if I optimistically head out tonight and find that the planet has unexpectedly cleared away, I'm sure the view will be really spectacular.
You think you've got problems with mere clouds. For all but a handful of years in my life (and every year for the last two decades) I've had a planet in the way of viewing Perseids.
A DDOS attack does nothing to attack the integrity or security of the data. The success of a DDOS attack only indirectly calls data safety into question - if they were not able to defend against DDOS, perhaps they're also not good enough to maintain security.
As an aside, I'm currently living in Australia, and the site worked fine for me at about 6pm.

To bring down a murderous nut-cult, you have to do what the Brits did to the Thuggee. You have to infiltrate them, identify their leaders, and kill them. If the Brits had been worried about offending the peaceful worshippers of Kali, India would STILL be plagued by ritual murders today.
Wow, I hope to God (or Goddess) that you know that what you're referring to is fiction: http://indianajones.wikia.com/... .
Kali continues to be (peacefully) worshiped as a very popular form of the Goddess or the Mother of the Universe in Hinduism in India, Nepal and even in Tibet and some forms of Buddhism but I'm not entirely sure about the latter.

Alas, this appears to be apocryphal. http://msgboard.snopes.com/cgi...
Pure water will not accumulate radioactivity. With one exception, there is no reaction with hydrogen or oxygen to make a long term radioactive nucleus. 16O+n->17O (stable). 17O+n->18O (stable). Very rare 18O+n-> 19O, half-life 26s. 16O+p->17F, half-life 65s. Etc.
The only exception is 2H+n -> 3H (tritium, half-life 12.3 years) but the cross section for this is very small, and H2 (deuterium) has very low concentration (0.01%) in ordinary water.
So leave your irradiated pure water for half an hour out of radiation, and it will be fine.
Contaminants in the water could accumulate long term radioactivity. If this is enough to be a problem (I'd bet it isn't), you'd need to purify the water before use.
I was at a company which developed a large CRM application and I was the person who tarred up software updates to send to sites. A small part of the application was in Java, and the Java programmers were enamoured with class names which emphasized descriptiveness over brevity. We ended up with some files where path+filename exceeded 255 characters, and tar broke. My fix was to tell the programmers to shorten their damn file and directory names. (This was about 15 years ago, and it would have been Gnu tar. )
But the real achievement I think they're aiming for is to go through exciting and reach the boring on the far side.
