FYI Seattle - As a Civil Engineer from the East Coast who loves your city - we are rooting for you. We really are. But the tunnel is a terrible train wreck in slow motion and goddamn if I am not going to use it as a political cudgel against my own local officials for their stupid hare-brained projects that inject money into their friends coffers.

I mean once the fabricator has cut / ground everything, not straight from the mill. This "stone" looks like its had an anti-rust coating applied. I wonder how POR-15 behaves in the oven. . .

@16 tau
What coatings are on a piece of hot-rolled a36 plate from the mfg that would make it unsafe for cooking? Most codes I've seen specified a uniform surface requirement to reduce chances for bacteria / fungal growth. Honestly curious here

Since when would the Boy scouts official translator confuse a wink for a wank? Y'all are troubling something fierce.

Still, letter 1 seems fakety fake fake designed more to elicit internet points and rage.

Using my handy-dandy boy scouts morse code translator, Dan was sending this secret message to the writer: "AINK. AINK. AINK"

That seems about right for a BS letter.

Goldy, its not 7000$ for the degree- its 7000 for a single year. So over four years its going to be 28,000$.

I mostly switched over to using keypass to generate 32-character passwords requiring special characters, spaces, and high ansi characters + additional entropy, like this:


I don't expect to be cracked anytime soon by script kiddies using programs like the ones used in the Ars article.

Am I the only one who read this as the response of a woman to a man calling her a C***, block-quoting him and then telling him to fuck off while throwing the word back in his face?

@5 NYT has cookie detection, and the site has pop-ups if you disable their specific tracking cookie. This doesn't stop you from just deleting their cookie every few days, or in my preferred method, simply reading their site using private browsing. Ctrl+Shift+N (Chrome), or; when the firewall comes up just close the window, open a new one and resume consumption.

What Boehner says doesn't actually matter in this case because typically the NCTC is pretty accurate in characterizing these attacks as terrorism. So people who actually have to do security concerns by the GSA / DOD standards see these for what they truly are (terrorism). Honestly, most people in the counter-terrorism field view the media with skepticism and regard it as bullshit.
