Japan Eyes Solar Station In Space

yoprst bring it on (247 comments)

Too bad it'll never work out. The station deserves to be build for the sake of high energy beams randomly poking earth surface due to a software glitch.

Panel Recommends Space Science, Not Stunts

yoprst Re:All well and good (304 comments)

Science isn't about improving human life - it's about "just looking at stuff, and figuring out how it works". Science is a goal, in and of itself. The bulk of the science does nothing to imrove human life, and that's ok.

Russia Launches Anti-trust Probe of Microsoft

yoprst Re:Waiting for bribes (221 comments)

Cetainly not "almost everyone". Russian authorities are really fighting piracy for the last couple of years. Of course a)it's done with their usual level of competence and eagerness b)it's most likely the result of some (cough cough MS?) companies figuring out "how thing work in post-soviet countries", not a genuine desire of Russian authorities to protect intellectual property.

Shaming Russia Into Action On Cyber Crime

yoprst Re:Government "vs" criminals? (140 comments)

"government" and "criminals" are definitely not the same thing. government is just the biggest player on that market (in fact, several players - government agencies commit crimes on their own, not conspiring but, in fact, competing with each other), but there are lot's of others who want their own slice of the pie
