Many slashdotters are opposed to being scrubs. Most house rules are an attempt to make a game more fun by cutting off higher level play. You don't think it's fair that someone learned more 2 letter words than you, so you made up a way to temporarily prevent him from using them after the game started.
You could have found counters, but you didn't, because you're a scrub.
It fixed the dialer bugs that KitKat has. The first time I pull up the keypad, it's offset such that keys other than 1-3 are hidden. I have to hit back and then pull up the keypad again to get access to all numbers.
It fixed the bug where if I type in a long pin on KitKat, the screen stops accepting input. I have to slowdown. My pin is 9 characters.
There are many UI regressions though, particularly switching to silent/vibrate and back. I hate that every number in my pin gets a huge circle revealing where I pressed. Inconvenient for paranoid people like me.
I'm going to see if CyanogenMod 12 fixes these regressions when a stable release is available for my phone.
Reminds me of the reverse OCR tumblr. It generates patterns of squiggles a human could never read but the OCR recognizes as a word.

The proper abbreviation for Doctors without Borders is MSF (Medicines san Frontiers). They have employees who get paid! It is not a volunteer organization! The burnout rate is already high. If you told all of their workers that their vacation would be spent in house arrest for the entirety of their break between missions, there'd be far fewer workers. Protip: significantly reducing the amount of workers willing to treat infectious diseases is not a good way to reduce outbreak of infectious diseases.
Lysol would be plenty for disinfecting a bowling alley. Similar surfaces were found to disinfect themselves after a few hours in the dark!

My friend is a logistician, not a medical doctor. AFAIK, there is no oath for logisticians.
I have seen no evidence of any health workers ignoring symptoms. The doctor in the parent article followed all the MSF guidelines.
I have a close friend who works for Doctors Without Borders. She doesn't get a lot of vacation. If she had a 3 week quarantine (where would they quarantine her?), her friends and family would see her far less often. Her vacations mid-mission would have to be spent in the country she was working in.
I'm sorry the owner of the bowling alley will need a few cans of lysol because we didn't have ebola camps for humanitarian doctors.
GSM encryption is terrible, TLS is terrible (Mac-then-encrypt, terrible cipher suites, rollback attacks, GCM implemented incorrectly), IPSec is incredibly convoluted and offers many broken modes (encrypt-only), NIST suite B ECC has fishy constants, AES has horrible side channel attacks in software that allow key recovery from other virtual machines, SHA-3 will have a reduced security level compared to the standard for the sake of 'efficiency'...
Don't think that just because Dual EC-DRBG is obviously bad that all attempts to weaken cryptography will be equally obvious.
