Click on the big question mark on the top left corner:

If you are already a member of the Honeynet Project, you can just publish your captures to hpfeeds and they will automatically show up on this map. If you are not a member, you can run your own copy of this map on your own server. Code is on GitHub (LGPL license).

Sea Level Rise Can't Be Stopped

dominious Re:Not too bad? (521 comments)

Surely cities that are going to be effected will have ample time to relocate those in "danger".

That sounds like one of those "famous last words"...

Headlights That See Through Rain and Snow

dominious Re:Cut out that "free will" crap. (210 comments)

I think you've both missed the point. We were talking about smart headlights that can see through heavy rain...

Depressed People Surf the Web Differently

dominious Re:So WTF do the non-depressed do with the interne (278 comments)

It follows that a depressed person might say, "Fuck it, I'm just going to stay home and watch every episode of Game of Thrones and eat Cheetos until I fall asleep."

fuck, I just realized that I'm depressed.

Android Ported To C#

dominious RUN FOR YOUR LIVES (351 comments)

I'm currently trying to learn the WPF in C# for a project and it just makes my life difficult! The combination of MVC, XML, LINQ and routed events just broke my ability to do real programming. You will really find yourself spend hours trying to do simple tasks and end up hacking up some weird solutions that will make your project into spaghetti code (talking about large projects at least).

Travelling Salesman, Thriller Set In a World Where P=NP

dominious Re:Cryptography? (165 comments)

But P=NP will not help you crack anything.

IANAC but just what I remember from my CS degree, factorization is NP-complete, if it can be simplified to polynomial then maybe it's easier to crack something (public key systems that rely on the complexity of factorization like RSA) ? Shor's algorithm that works on a quantum computer does make it polynomial and it says in the link that it will have major implications to security schemes that rely on factorization (such as RSA).

I wonder if this movie is related to that (transforming sand to glass could be relevant to how Shor transformed the problem using the quantum Fourier transform)

Code Name, Theming Update Announced For Ubuntu 12.10

dominious Re:Advice: Overuse of the Red Channel in Colors (285 comments)

OTOH red/green is more soothing at night when you are using your Desktop for something entertaining other than work. As said somewhere (search google) blue is brighter at night and is causing your system to produce less melatonin which is a hormone for sleep. It may also increase the risk of cancer!

There are already interfaces that allow you to change your OS theme. What I would like however, is a theme that will change according to the time of the day/night and/or the task I am doing to help my health and efficiency.

Man Protests TSA With Nudity

dominious His job (FTA) (434 comments)

Said Brennan's father, also John Brennan, when reached by KATU News Tuesday night: "This is quite a shock. He hasn't been under any stress that I know of. He's never really under any stress. He works for a computer company in California. He does something with the Internet, which is just kind of mystical to me. This is quite a surprise."

How Las Vegas Missed Out on a Life-Sized Starship Enterprise

dominious yes but in 5000 years (240 comments)

Archaeologists would find this ancient starship and think that our civilization got in space-travel first!

Not to mention that all these weapons and lasers would freak them out since it would suggest that we had battles with alien civilizations.

13-Billion-Year-Old Alien Worlds Discovered

dominious Re:Astronomers are so funny (302 comments)

no, the refrigerator does work moving heat to the outside in time with some of that energy thereafter unavailable to do work, increasing the overall entropy of the universe even though causing a local decrease of entropy inside

And that folks, is the definition of a refrigerator here on Slashdot! Still wonder why you don't have any gfs? Seriously though, this is why I love /.

The Blistering Hot Exoplanet Where It Snows

dominious Re:I welcome (68 comments)

This is not just for knowledge sake. Weather conditions on other planets may help us understand weather behaviour in general, and in turn understand better the weather conditions on our own planet.
