3 Decades Later, Finnair Pilots Report Dramatic Close Encounter With a Missile

hax4bux Re:Probably US Navy missile (138 comments)

SM1 (standard missile 1) required active guidance all the way, typically a 55B fire control RADAR or similar.

Typical warhead was continuous rod (a lot of shrapnel). The idea being to tear holes in the target and let aerodynamics do the rest.

I own two aircraft. Doesn't change my age. What are you compensating for and why do you think a cadillac helps?

Embedded Devices Leak Authentication Data Via SNMP

hax4bux Re:TFA spectactularly fails at the Internet (58 comments)

Complaining about V1 community strings makes as much sense as "discovering" that telnet is insecure.

Don't use V1 if you are concerned about this. There is no promise of security and never was.

Programming Language Diversity On the Rise

hax4bux Re:A good sign (177 comments)

Yes, learning another language is not hard. And to use your example, if most languages are more alike than not, why do we need another one? It's all just riffs on the same core.

I am working (until Friday) w/a group of children who download every shiny thing on the internet and throw it into production. The result is chaos and they are rather proud of it. Amazing to watch, impressive if it worked. It doesn't work, and they spend a lot of time tinkering. Oh, well. Someday they will discover girls and have better things to do. I hope.
