US and Russia Set Up Cyber Cold War Hotline

faustoc4 Cyberway arms race (72 comments)

This only confirms an article by Bruce Schneir that I just read, he surmises if the U.S has started a secret cyberwar arms race putting all internet infrastructure at perils. "... advance U.S. national objectives around the world with little or no warning to the adversary or target and with potential effects ranging from subtle to severely damaging" fuckers

MakerBot Merging With Stratasys

faustoc4 Re:worrying acquisition (65 comments)

That's not what I meant. I think it's possible that they gradually close down makerbot and turn them into a 3D printing service using high end Stratasys printers. And as American you only think about yourself, this technology can have a lot more impact in developing countries but a $2000+ dollars 3D printer is out of the question, owning low cost 3D printing in a developing country is revolutionary and empowering

MakerBot Merging With Stratasys

faustoc4 worrying acquisition (65 comments)

This kind of acquisitions worry me, it reminds me of Microsoft buying competing companies just to close them. Hope I'm wrong but 3D printing is a really disruptive technology, current industry is worried about disappearing. So they are very interested in turning 3D printing into 3D printing services rather than owning a 3D printer. Anyway I'm backing the next 3D printer in kickstart

faustoc4 bitcoins disruptive technology (347 comments)

Who could have thought that bitcoins were a disruptive technology and could bypass international banking oversight, like economic blockages or sanctions. Maybe Iran will accept bitcoins for their oil.

Found this gem on wayback machine

"Millions of farm animals have consumed nutritious feed rations made with grain from biotech crops and people have consumed hundreds of millions of meals containing foods derived from biotech crops—all without a single substantiated instance of illness or harm due to the GM ingredient."

Anti-GMO Activist Recants

faustoc4 ringed some bells (758 comments)

I have not read the article, but a couple of things in this summary ringed some bells: current GMOs use is not to feed the world population, for instance USA corn monopoly is empowered with Monsanto GMO corn to make farmers and countries even more dependent and them. There is a whole vicious circle involving subsidies, monoculture, corn industrial derivatives, corn feedstock, antibiotics that has nothing with "feeding the world population" but with empowering monopolies". Furthermore "'natural' agriculture", is he talking about traditional agriculture? I couldn't agree more that it's doomed. But the UN has studied Agro-ecology and found out that it could double agriculture production

faustoc4 antibiotics are part of the business model (179 comments)

It's not only the "cramped conditions" (sic) that produce infections, also the corn they are fed and the Posilac (TM) hormone they get injected produce more infections. Also antibiotics promote growth, so they are given to healthy animals as well.

If I use a keyfile in Truecrypt, does this file also get loaded into RAM? Say, the keyfile is stored in a USB key that is removed after the Truecrypt partition is mounted.
