New Windows XP Zero-Day Under Attack

fabioalcor Re:Upate to the most current (241 comments)

You'd rather create a virtual machine, map your physical parallel port to the VM (it's easy in VMWare at least), turn off the VM's network adapter and install your legacy CNC software in there. Turn it on only when you need to use the CNC. Use a secure/modern OS in the physical machine.

Chinese City Wants To Build a Censorship-Free Hub

fabioalcor Re:um are companies really this dumb? (94 comments)

Realy low cost service. There are lots of companies that don't give a shit about privacy, they only care about budget cuts. Especialy those companies who deal with other people data, not theirs.

Instant Quantum Communication Is Near

fabioalcor Re:Yeah, Right (287 comments)

I'm sure any researcher who so much as hints that he's actually close to a breakthrough on that topic quietly disappears in the night.

Don't worry, he will reappear in another place, "alive" again and unchanged.

Americans Favor Moratorium On New Nuclear Reactors

fabioalcor Re:What happened? (964 comments)

Eh? The reactors at the Fukushima no.1 complex were hit by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake, THEN a 12m high tsunami, and THEN several explosions.

I wonder what would happen if such disasters had hit a dam or a thermal gas/coal plant...

What about Portal? Last year it was offered for free for a few days. And it was not only a "come-on" for me, it was a big red carpet welcome.
