Russia To Help NATO Build Anti-Missile Network

junner518 Re:We can help you, comrades (175 comments)

I agree Russia is positioning itself, yet I still believe at some level this is a genuine effort at global cooperation *ducks*. And there is already defense against cruise missiles (Patriot missiles, etc.), so is it not plausible that cooperation can protect the involved nations from cruise missiles as well? It would be trickier because of range issues, but still plausible.

And yes, one of the motivations is definitely the lucrative contracts. However, Russia would not agree to this unless some political gain is won. A couple multimillion dollar contracts are not enough to sway the foreign policy of such a large nation.

Russia To Help NATO Build Anti-Missile Network

junner518 Re:We can help you, comrades (175 comments)

It is good to see such international cooperation on a global issue. Russia's foreign policy positions seem to contrast with what was accomplished at the summit; I wonder what the sentiment about this settlement is in Russia. The next question is if this network can be expanded beyond NATO. Imagine a network which protected Asia, Oceania, and Africa as well. Whether that is politically possible or not is in question, but I believe with enough time we could see the day. Or everyone could nuke each other with their counter-counter-nuke tech.

3 Cups of Coffee Increases Hallucinations

junner518 Re:Yet to experience them. (628 comments)

From United Nuclear's website

Caffeine is a central nervous system and metabolic stimulant in small milligram quantities, however, ingestion of only slightly larger amounts can be fatal. This material is for experimental purposes only and not to be added to food or drink products.
Caution: Caffeine is toxic. Use normal safety precautions (wear a filter mask/respirator and gloves) when working with Caffeine. Accidental inhalation of fine particles can be dangerous. Note: adult signature required upon delivery.

Disregarding the FUD, I still would think twice about ingesting pure caffeine.

Fairpoint Pledges To Violate Net Neutrality

junner518 Re:Not gonna happen (249 comments)

As a current resident of NH, I can say that many people have access to an alternate ISP. In my area Fairpoint will take over Verizon's DSL and land-based telephone service, and the limited FiOS connections that exist. But on top of that Comcast (which isn't so benevolent either) and in some places Time Warner Cable offers internet. Of course in some of the rural areas the cable alternative might not be there, but in general there are options in NH.

Perpetual Sessions?

junner518 junner518 writes  |  more than 5 years ago Recently I went to from my secondary computer and realized I couldn't auto-login to the site. After logging in a few times across different computers I realized I could only be logged in on one browser at a time. But why? Is my security compromised by having a (hopefully) secure cookie across many browsers? Are there data issues? On my personal website, I implemented perpetual sessions with a few lines of php code. However many popular websites require you to log in for every session. Are perpetual sessions secure enough for everyday use on popular websites?
