Storm Worm Botnet "Cracked Wide Open"

DoktorTomoe Re:Screw the law. (301 comments)

You might want to differ. Installing software on foreign computers without consent is perfectly legal in lots of jurisdictions, in some western nations it is even tried by the state. Why should it be acceptable for the state to install trojans to monitor your net use (see: Bundestrojaner, EU in general), but despictable to kill a botnet with similar tactics?

Anti-Virii are no new invention - they were around in the 1990s.

Storm Worm Botnet "Cracked Wide Open"

DoktorTomoe Screw the law. (301 comments)

A law that actively hinders human development and protects criminal activities is immoral.

Immoral laws should not be followed.

Clean Code

DoktorTomoe Why so difficult. (214 comments)

Just follow one coding standard and stick to it, preferably a aerospace and/or military related one (as those are the ones that happen to be the best worked-out I've seen).

Personally, I prefer 2RDU00001, because not only it has the rules, but explains why every single specific rule makes sense, thus making it easier to enforce in a team.

DoktorTomoe writes "According to this article, the International Astronomical Union has decided that eight planets are enough and put in effect an definition that a planet should be a body that "is circling around a star, basically round because of own gravitational forces and has swept their path clean". This renders Pluto a non-planet, it will be called a "Dwarf Planet" in the future, just as Xena, Sedna and Ceres. Here goes my astronomy knowledge."
