Re: PG&E's nightmare

Since corporate personhood is becoming the law of the land, where will the first prison for corporations be located, Boca, the Hamptons, Aspen, or Palm Springs?

Re: Counter-top toaster oven

I've had the same one since my junior year of college (nearly 20 years now, eek!), and it's great for things like DD's fish sticks and chicken nuggest, Costco spinakapita, or other little things (just a couple of cookies, pop tarts, etc). However, as [more]

Re: Russian Sanctions

Re: latest on F-35 program

As I wondered what major structural part of the ship just broke...the guy I was walking with said to me "a plane just landed".

Re: latest on F-35 program

It was still more than 920 degrees Celsius (over 1,700 Fahrenheit). That was enough to cause heat resistant concrete to spall (come apart in flakes) and the heat resistant portable matting the U.S. Navy developed did not always prevent spalling [more]

Re: Disputing a CA bill?

I've written a dispute letter to ARM, asking for verification. They're offering to settle a $469 claim for $399, but I don't want to do anything without seeing some documentation.

Especially if someone "rebroadcasts" it without changes, where is the harm?

Re: No more Truecrypt !

I've never seen Gibson share/do anything to make him worthy of respect in the crypto community. Spinrite v1 and v2 were great products, *FOR THEIR TIME*, but what he's done since has been pretty ho-hum (when he's done anything at all). See [more]

Re: No more Truecrypt !

There's a lot of speculation going on around this, but the most plausible (to me, at least) seems to be the TC team either getting tired of the project (the developers started it in their mid- to late-20s, and almost certainly have families, [more]
