Re: The Engineer's Lament

From a public safety standpoint, B) is the better option because people slow down before they go too fast. From a revenue standpoint A) is much better.

Re: OT Sacrébleu!

The first thing I thought when saw at the first picture was how much the alien looks like a 1978-vintage Cylon Raider, and the last picture a "re-imagined" one.

Re: Star Wars the Force Awakens

Alternatively, what if tFA is taking a page from the (now non-canon) Expanded Universe, and Luke is talking to a niece/nephew? If the movie is set 30 years after RotJ, that's more than enough time for Leia to have a family.

Re: DVDs

Go with DVD-R, then, and give the copies a watch on your own player before sending them off. Or if you like, burn one copy on - and another on +. The blanks are cheap, and unlike magnetic tape, a DVD will either work or it won't. There is no "in [more]

Re: Newer aircraft vulnerable to hacking

The newer ships do not have these features.

When the Cylons attacked, they hacked into every other ship in the fleet and shut them down in moments. Only the non-networked, hardwired, Galactica remained operational.

Re: Greece default and Grexit imminent

The problem comes if the tax receipts aren't sufficient to cover ongoing spending (presuming foreign government debts are defaulted upon).

Re: Here is something new in spamming.

Open the JScript in a text editor or isolated/subnetted virtual machine. I'll bet it will redirect to some rogue server, attempt to install a rootkit, and then either go into zombie mode, or install cryptolocker and attempt to extort you.
