New Email Worm Squirming Through Windows Users' Inboxes

Ryukotsusei Re:Got mimedefang? (473 comments)

It's not even that. The one we have at work was basically, here is the file you requested, with a link to some file sharing website link to a pdf file. Except if you looked at the address it wasn't even the right site. I got about 10 emails today with the "here you have" subject line, as well as 2 emails from people screaming not to open any suspicious emails. Yet I keep getting them..

Ryukotsusei THz laser... (125 comments)

Aren't all lasers in the THz range? I'm pretty sure all visible light and company are in the THz range.

Navy Wants Cyber Weapons That Shoot Data Beams

Ryukotsusei Re:April Fools is over (123 comments)

I'm pretty sure they already have similar things out there, electronic warfare planes to jam radar and guidance missiles. This just moves it from analog to digital systems.

IE8 Beats Other Browsers In Laptop Battery Life

Ryukotsusei No Suprise (263 comments)

Is this really a surprise given than IE is built into the Windows system anyway? Explorer is running in the background no matter what, so when you start up Firefox or any other browser its going to run on top of explorer.

Can Unmanned Aircraft Mix With Commercial Planes?

Ryukotsusei Where's the issue? (203 comments)

I don't see the problem in this. As long as you give the aircraft a simple AI (planes practically fly themselves anyway), and a pre-set route, they should be fairly predictable. A simple in-the-air navigation system for collision avoidance and you're set.

ACM Urges Obama To Include CS In K-12 Core

Ryukotsusei It is pretty basic ideas (474 comments)

Some schools have Lego Mindstorms, which have a primitive programming system. I mean, it's not hat hard to teach stuff like conditionals, loops, object, etc. The idea of anything taught at this level is to familiarize the student for higher-level work. We do spend 4 years teaching algebra, after all.

Orbiter Reveals Rock Fracture Plumbing On Mars

Ryukotsusei Misguided (61 comments)

Why do we care about ground water in Mars? Don't we have bigger things to do here on Earth? All these Mars missions seem like a major waste of resources. Where is our moon base?
