Anonymous No More: Your Coding Style Can Give You Away
Okay, I just woke up from a nap, but could you show your math there? Maybe I'm missing something because I come up with.. 50k, not 200k...
Serious Network Function Vulnerability Found In Glibc
Don't be so glib, see?
I'll be here all night folks. Tip your servers. Make sure they're bolted in, though.
Silk Road Journal Found On Ulbricht's Laptop: "Everyone Knows Too Much"
And finally, once the FBI is there, knocking down your door (metaphorically speaking), you're pretty much fucked. The investigation that led them to you is probably more than enough to indict you and probably get the conviction, and refusing to turn over your keys once they already have you pinned down will be viewed as contempt of court and you'll sit in prison for a long damned time without a trial. This is why, from what I can tell, the defense is mainly focused on the procedure/evidence that led the FBI to him (poisoning the well) since if they can't give a good accounting for how they connected him to the SR, then all that evidence is for nothing if they used illegal techniques to get it.

No, he's right, we interviewed a bunch of "dudes" but no men.
Radio Shack Reported To Be Ready for Bankruptcy Filing
Yes, which means there's a great market opportunity for local shops to open, of which one may become the next Radio Shack. I'd love a shop (even if it's a dank, basement style shop of yore) where I could see and demo 3D printers (and print stuff for you for a price), arduino/netduino boards, with classes on making/doing. Make it like a gaming store. Hell, you could probably sell magic cards, too (not like they take up a lot of space), but I digress. it's always fun to have a place one can go to talk shop. IRC works for many, but sometimes, a cold beer with a new friend is irreplaceable. The problem is online pricing will always beat store prices (if that store wants to stay in business), so there will have to be some sort of incentive to get people to come out. Bands are having this problem, as is the movie industry. Everyone wants to save a dollar, not sure how to convince people to buy it there.
The Mainframe Is Dead! Long Live the Mainframe!
Who didn't think mainframes were like the epitome of cool back in the 80s/90s? Who doesn't, now, want one of those massive computer-as-art Cray installations, with the comfy couch and the processor coolant trickling across some sculpture that served as eye candy as well as a radiator, and the subtle blinkenlights flashing away, seemingly at random? And then came the Beowulf.

What's wrong with inflation? If anything, it's a flat-tax that certain segments keep talking about. Use it or lose it.

My Note 4 gives me a "Unfortunately, Touchwiz Home has stopped" or somesuch error about every 3 minutes of use... Really annoying.
Microsoft Ends Mainstream Support For Windows 7
Yeah, I don't get this. I use Win8.1 mostly full-time at home (when I'm not on my chromebook or my work laptop) and while I've learned to tolerate win 8.1's bullshit, I still find myself looking at buying a Win 7 Pro license on occasion.
Microsoft Ends Mainstream Support For Windows 7
Yep. Get rid of metro and 100% of my issues go away. When I press the start key, I don't want you to flip into a touch screen mode on my non-touch screen laptop and make me forget what the fuck I wanted to do.

Or maybe you'd like to say "If only the Muslims would fight ISIS and the fundamentalists!"
I mean, who do you think the YPK is made up of? Or Hezbollah (which, oddly enough is an ally in the fight against ISIS and their ilk)?
The fact is, there are MANY MANY MANY Muslims who are sick of this shit, just like non-Muslims. And they speak out against their backwards, inbred rednecks. The media is loathe to report this side of the story (see the Fergeson protests.. the media only concentrated on the trouble makers, not the hundreds/thousands who protested without managing to rob stores and burn shit down). All it takes is a cursory look around and you realize that money is to be made by sensationalism, and you've been had.

Ask Slashdot: High-Performance Laptop That Doesn't Overheat?
1) The submitter could be living in some shared squat space in SFO where the space for a desktop would be a luxury. The cost of housing is prohibitively expensive in some areas and frankly, even though Los Angeles isn't quite to that level, I find myself cramped enough in my 350 sqft studio apartment that I ended up selling my Powermac G5 because I kept kicking it with my shin everytime I squeezed between the desk and the couch. I have literally no space in my apartment for a desktop. I use a laptop sitting askew on my desk, hooked to an external monitor (hooray! dual screens), and have the freedom to just pack the laptop up and go to my gf's house, or to work, whatever (daily occurence). I don't necessarily need the full power of a desktop, but due to my filmmaking efforts I really use the discrete graphics and some storage options for desktops. Basically: Visual Studio, Adobe CC suite, World of Warcraft, and Chrome is where I spend 99.9% of my time.
I'm currently contemplating the MSI WS60 (Core i7 4710MQ?, 16gb RAM, 2x128gb SSDs in RAID0, 1x1TB 7200rpm spinner, Quadro something or other) and GS60 Ghost Pro something something (same as WS60 but with 6gb nVidia GTX 970m and no thunderbolt). Both are available with 4k screens, but that's overkill for my purposes (external monitor for that).

Analysis of Spacecraft Data Reveals Most Earth-like Planet To Date
Preferably human-like life, with sexual reproduction. And compatible female equivalent bits for interfacing. And hopes that the male equivalents don't have bigger dongs than human males.

How Long Will It Take Streaming To Dominate the Music Business?
You can still buy lots of cassette players.. Urban Outfitters sells them (*shudder*), for example. Bestbuy has a few models, etc. The Walkman may be what you're thinking of, and that's true, Sony discontinued that IIRC. But as to the consumers, I really don't know either. I'm old and I'm too tired to question what young people want these days. I swear, kids will be wanting Commodore 64s and dial-up BBSes again soon.
