Singer Reportedly Outbids NASA for Space Tourist's Seat

Mekkah Re:Impossible. Her net worth is 45M. (242 comments)

If I had enough money not to miss 51M I may consider it, but I wouldn't spend ALL my millions it, let alone a portion have any magnitude. Even if they were willing to spend 50% of their fortune on it, this still seems incredibly unlikely in this instance unless she is actually Bill Gates hidden Goddaughter.

NSA Considers Its Networks Compromised

Mekkah That's because they are. (239 comments)

Any time you have users, you are going to eventually get infected, I'm sure they have been and will be again, but it is the separation between valuable data and the users infected computers that they need to keep a handle on.

Mekkah Re:To be fair... (168 comments)

Thank you for inserting logic. I used to work for NG, and I am certainly not defending them, but lets not just brand them as bad because of the size of their.. contract. We all know morons who work for every company..

Windows vs. Ubuntu — Dell's Verdict

Mekkah I heart Ubuntu (718 comments)

I heart Ubuntu, but I wouldn't have my parents use it.

Ubuntu can be a challenge at times, there are pros and cons to everything, I'm glad they are at least partially bringing it to light.

'Robin Sage' Social Hoax Duped Military, Security Pros

Mekkah Re:I'm pretty sure (191 comments)

Normally that'd be true, but Rangers are a little different, for the most part. A lot of the time, they are in the shit.

That said, having time / connectivity to upload pics to FB or Twitter... you're prolly 15,000% right. This sounds like someone who wants a gold star.

Brain-Scan Lie Detection Rejected By Brooklyn Court

Mekkah How do you fail a lie detector? (197 comments)

If you take it and pass, you are telling the truth, if you take it and fail, why would you take it if you were gonna fail, clearly you are in the 10% of bad results. Win-Win.

Brain-Scan Lie Detection Rejected By Brooklyn Court

Mekkah Because they are unreliable. (197 comments)

They don't tell you shit, I've taken a couple of them for government work and it depends on the person, and their ability to concentrate. You can easily get false positives and easily beat it if you have the right mindset.

Security Firm Reveals Microsoft's "Silent" Patches

Mekkah Quote. (84 comments)

"Secret patches are neither new or rare. "This has been going on for many years and the action in and of itself is not a huge conspiracy," said Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Security."

What is unusual is that Core took Microsoft's silent updates public.

Not that this should go on anyway, but don't go thinking this is a rare instance and they are stealing your milk money, it happens enough to be of some sort a standard business practice.
