Schneier Calls US Stuxnet Cyberattack a 'Destabilizing and Dangerous' Action

Sosarian Re:I Think You Missed the Point (351 comments)

I believe that Schneier compared this with desire for secure communications SecCom vs Signals Intelligence SigInt at the NSA in his CryptoGram newsletter.

Red Hat Releases RHEL 6 Public Beta 1

Sosarian Re:Showing its age (148 comments)

It's 3 years old, but it's going to be supported in that configuration for 10 years.

To be honest your software sounds cutting edge and uses features that haven't made it into the mainstream long term supported server market that RHEL is in. Some future version of RHEL might have all the features you are looking for, or are you continually chasing the latest greatest glibc and gcc?

It all seems to become a moot point a little bit, I'm running RHEL5 as my Xen machine and virtualizing from there now, so creating virtual machines with newer software configurations is becoming less of a hassle than it once was.

Traditional News Media Lead Blogs By 2.5 Hours

Sosarian Blogs don't lead for news... (186 comments)

For the stories that the newspapers are actually reporting.

What about stories that they aren't reporting on, putting on page 57, or just getting the facts wrong.

I've almost given up on local media, probably because not a lot of it interests me beyond fires, murders, local government. The rest I get off the internet. Although they have adapted a bit here in my city, posting their top news stories to twitter from their websites.

And for things like science reporting, I think the specialty reporting is doing a better job, like science bloggers, podcasts, radio and tv (Science Friday, Quirks and Quarks, Daily Planet).

Google Announces Chrome OS, For Release Mid-2010

Sosarian Vaporware (1089 comments)

I'm sorry if I can't get too excited about what is essentially vaporware at the moment.

Wake me up when they actually ship some code or product, in the meantime it's just some sort of marketing drivel probably designed to take the wind out of Windows 7 or Cloud OS's sails.

But until I see an actual product, I'm not going to get overly excited.

CRTC Rules Bell Can Squeeze Downloads

Sosarian Re:Abolish the CRTC (245 comments)

From what I understand, they are usually either lying, intentionally not told that the service is available, or misinformed.
