How is that a syllogism? huh

That was a part of the silly joke. It's not. Wink But it is treated as though it is very often.

app103 is following my line of thought here. Hacking is considered to be an act of terrorism under modern American law. It's just a matter of time before one of his clients does something illegal with what he sold them and he'll be looking down the barrel of being charged as a terrorist.

It's amazing how some of the smartest people can also be among the stupidest.

Hold on... He's selling to governments... By definition they cannot do anything "illegal". They're always right and moral and good and virtuous and puppy dogs and flowers and loveliness and virtue.

Are you suggesting that governments can be capable of criminal activity????

That's simply absurd!!!

Can a government be a terrorist?

Oh, I'm so shocked! It's just not possible!

Because...

This.

Yeah. Pretty much that. Wink



I'm sure as heck not going to defend Mitnick. But I sure as heck won't defend or excuse his clients either.

I can understand why he'd do it. It's a kind of perverse revenge for that they did to him. It probably wasn't fun being thrown in a rape cage.

Happy Hour in Newfoundland

A Newfie saw a sign at a restaurant.

It read...

Quote
Happy Hour Special:
Lobster Tail & Beer.


"Lard Tunderin Jaises!" he says to himself, "Me tree favourite things!"



One Wish

A young, Newfoundlander man was walking around a field in Newfoundland, when he came across an old well. He walked up to the well, just to get a look. He noticed an old looking bottle in the well bucket. He picked it up. And suddenly a genie appeared before him.

The genie said, "For freeing me, I will grant you one wish."

The young man said, "Ok. I wish that there was a bridge going from Newfoundland to the mainland, you know, like the P.E.I. one."

The genie said,"I am sorry, but I can't do that. That would be TOO much change. That would be ALMOST impossible. It would change too many peoples lives."

So the young man thought for a second, then said, "Ok, then. I am a proud Newfoundlander, and I am sick and tired of everyone making fun of Newfoundlanders. SO I wish that Newfound landers were as smart, or even smarter than ANYONE else in the world. Or at least smarter than any other Canadian."

The genie said, "So, do you want two lanes, or four?"



I had a non-stop supply of Newfie jokes when I was a kid because I had a lot of Newfie friends. Wink

My favourite Newfie joke has to be done in person, and really requires the proper situation, which of course involves snow... Grin

But I also love humour that dumps on nationalities. Wink

Q: What's the difference between Canada, Mexico and America?
A: America has nice neighbours.

Canada: Home of the largest French population never to surrender to Germany

What is big and white and found in Vancouver? A lost polar bear.

In Canada there are two seasons: six months of winter and six months of poor snowmobiling.

I had a chance to meet the Canadian military. What a nice guy.



It's not about race, or sex, or religion -- it's about the attitudes towards them. Often this says more about the listener than the speaker, which may or may not be simply a thin skin or desire to feel victimised in order to feel special. Often it's about the speaker and malicious or hateful intent behind the joke, which isn't funny.

"Racist" humour (etc.) can be a source of fun and enjoyment if it comes from the right place. (Or, some people just need a chill pill.)

Don't trust Linux.

While Linux would work without bash, the GNU/Linux ecosystem mostly got down to it. Here we go with another example of Linux's bad design: As everything is third-party software, no one triggers a decent QA.

What would you recommend as a day-to-day usable OS? FreeBSD? OpenBSD? Other?

So this is roughly a second time that I have heard of, (I'm sure there are more) where flaws in otherwise trusted non-Windows Non-Adobe/Java stuff has been sitting on a vulnerability for who knows how long, and the "good guys" only found it in 2014. I mean, I know zero about Linux, but isn't bash one of those "deep core" little items that's been around forever?

God only knows how many of these are floating out there.

I worked on bada for a while, and I was pretty surprised when it was shelved for Tizen. It had an excellent security model. Pretty much everything was entirely encapsulated to an insane degree.

For example, you couldn't really ever do this:

myVar = SomeFunction(input1, input2);

Instead, you had to do this:

Error myError = SomeFunction(input1, input2, out myVar);

Functions returned only error values, so if things go smooth, you might have "myError" equal to "Error.OK" or something like that.

It allowed for functions to operate as black boxes with error checking already incorporated.

A lot of functions returned booleans, but whatever - same diff - errors are caught.

I checked the exploit above, and it seems rather odd that it was never caught before. One has to wonder who the committers are for some of these.

Liberia: Dead Ebola Patients Resurrect?

Two Ebola patients, who died of the virus in separate communities in Nimba County have reportedly resurrected in the county. The victims, both females, believed to be in their 60s and 40s respectively, died of the Ebola virus recently in Hope Village Community and the Catholic Community in Ganta, Nimba.

But to the amazement of residents and onlookers on Monday, the deceased reportedly regained life in total disbelief. The NewDawn Nimba County correspondent said the late Dorris Quoi of Hope Village Community and the second victim only identified as Ma Kebeh, said to be in her late 60s, were about to be taken for burial when they resurrected.

Ma Kebeh had reportedly been in door for two nights without food and medication before her alleged death. Nimba County has had bazaar news of Ebola cases with a native doctor from the county, who claimed that he could cure infected victims, dying of the virus himself last week.

News of the resurrection of the two victims has reportedly created panic in residents of Hope Village Community and Ganta at large, with some citizens describing Dorris Quoi as a ghost, who shouldn't live among them. Since the Ebola outbreak in Nimba County, this is the first incident of dead victims resurrecting.

Flesh eating virus? Makes you look like a zombie? People die? Come back from the dead?

I am going to watch this one today:

Century of Enslavement: The History of The Federal Reserve

It's an excellent documentary, and James does a fantastic job.

I have a few criticisms of the system that I've not seen anyone bring up yet, and I was hoping to hear a bit more original material from James, but alas, most of the content of the documentary I was already aware of.

Still, James has style, and really delivers the goods. He even has full transcripts with links and references.

If you like that, you will very likely appreciate this:

...What's even more surprising is AC since then. Along with Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, Brian Welch of Korn, Nicko McBrain of Iron Maiden, and Dan Spitz of Anthrax, and Blackie Lawless of WASP, they have all converted to Christianity. THAT bit in a documentary I would like to see.

Impressive - I hadn't known about that - though perhaps these were not as spectacular conversions as the academic and atheist C.S. Lewis' self-conversion to Christianity:
Quote
"The most dejected, reluctant convert in all England" C.S. Lewis in Surprised By Joy.
_____________________________

Interestingly he did not convert to RC though.

C.S. Lewis has been one of my favourite authors for a very long time. His Christian apologetics never venture into the territory of being nasty or cruel or anything of the sort. He's simply one of the finest authors to have ever lived. Our love of the Narnia chronicles is a testament to his skill. 

I really would like to see a documentary on Christian converts. It would be interesting.

You make a good point about Lewis being reluctant, etc. It isn't easy to change world views.

Freakonomics: Usually good, though not always as interesting as it feels it should be. Often feels like it takes a bit too superficial of a view on things, which is too bad. Feels like it could dig deeper on some stories.

Yes, that may very well work for you, and a lot of others -- me included -- I no longer use my watch or wallet. But that just boils down to our preference for what form factors we like. In this case, pockets. smiley Watches will find a market with people that prefer them to pockets.
