DARPA Seeks To Secure Data With Electronics That Dissolve On Command

rmmeyer We already know how to do this... (163 comments)

Obfuscated electronics design contest: solving a simple problem in a complex manner. Destruction of battlefield electronics is not a new science. A small gridwork of thermite inside the case and a small igniter. Trigger how you will.

Don't we have better things to spend research money on?

Ask Slashdot: Is There a Professional Geek Dress Code?

rmmeyer Polo shirts and khaki pants (432 comments)

In general, most places that I've been in during my 30 year career have had managers and supervisors generally wearing golf shirts and khaki pants or something similar. This is for places that have no real dress code other than clean, in good repair and not offensive.

I would take a look around the company and see how the rest of the team leaders dress. Regardless of how the geeks dress, you're going to need to peddle influence in order to get your budget and policies passed. The better you dress (without overdressing your higher level managers, the more respect you can garner from people that have no clue about IT.

Check out what your manager and his peers wear and go even with that or *one* step lower. If the company president wears jeans and band tee shirts, it don't matter none...:-)

Google Acquires Keyhole Corp.

rmmeyer Imagine this: (245 comments)

OK, so we start with a wearable computer. Stuff an NVidia in it. Get a chord type keyboard that's wearable. Display in glasses or the cool new lasers that draw on your retina. GPS jacked into computer. Keyhole maps.

I can finally type 'whereami' and find out!

This is all doable with current technology...

If only it worked in Linux...
