Coordination broke down Friday among the loose affiliate of online troublemakers known as Anonymous as they tried to continue their ongoing attacks against Scientology.
Even the Uber driver who gives me a ride from the graveyard back to Amsterdam has an opinion on who killed Martin Kok. “I know Martin,” the driver says. “He’s crazy. You hear about 26Koper? Guys my age. Hit men. You pay them, you give them pictures, they kill somebody. He wrote about those guys; those guys don’t like that.”
Ziem added: “Whenever an email is sent from her server to another email address, for example someone at Senate.gov, it creates copies and I assume that Hillary Clinton even herself doesn’t have control over all those third-party email servers, only her own.”
Conge said that when students enroll, most of them use Windows PCs bought by their parents, although the school is filled with Macs. But by the end of the course, 40 percent have switched to Macs, Conge said.
“It was devastating,” Martel says. “We were doing the final sound recordings, so I was in the sound studio when we found out. At that point I knew it was really funny and I was proud of it. Every year in the fall, I kind of remind Kent, ‘Hey, maybe it’d be a good year to put that on the air,’ and he always gets really excited, but then I don’t know what happens to it. It may always be wrapped up in a lawyer’s fear of what may happen if it’s ever shown.”
Naturally, most of the maps made by the NGA aren’t for the likes of you—unless, of course, you’re a spy or a military officer with high-level security clearance. But not all of them. The agency recently released a slew of unclassified maps and geospatial data for the Arctic region, including some of the most detailed terrain maps of Alaska available to the general public.
The cornerstone of Trumponomics is lower taxes, fewer regulations and better trade deals. By lowering barriers to business, Trump’s economic plan will benefit big corporations, small businesses and the American people alike. And that means it’ll be good for the tech industry and its customers.
I set up a FeedDemon Search Channel to track the latest news about biodiesel from Feedster and found many articles on websites outside my usual browsing regimen. With FeedDemon’s Channel Groups, you can gather similar news sources, which I found useful to separate my work from play browsing.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has talked generally about using business tax changes to pay for infrastructure investment. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has proposed a 10% tax on the accumulated profits. House Republicans envision a transformed tax system that bases corporate taxes on the location of sales, which would favor U.S. exporters and likely cause even more international controversy.
If you own a 4K TV (see above), you’ll want a PlayStation 4 that can handle it. The standard black PS4 Pro is normally $400 without a game, but Amazon has a better deal going that includes one of the biggest games of the year, Destiny 2. You can nab a white PS4 Pro bundle with Destiny 2 for $399.99 (list price: $449.99).

“Now all of a sudden we were able to ask questions about cybersecurity, and get answers,” says Spisak.
Bottom line: North Korea’s space launch is likely illegal and provides Pyongyang with important know-how that they’ll need for long-range missile launches. But in the short term, this one little (mostly) dead satellite isn’t going to hurt anyone.
Parker Conrad, the hard-charging founder and CEO of HR benefits startup Zenefits, was forced to step down in February when it was discovered that he was helping unlicensed salespeople circumvent state regulations and illegally sell health insurance to businesses to accelerate growth. The company ended up taking a $2.5 billion hit to its valuation.
ZUCKERBERG: This is really about our platform growing up. Most companies that have major platforms have big events for their communities that are separate from when they’ve launched big products, and in the past, we used F8 to launch big new products or big directional changes in the platform. Now, we want to get the community together once a year around the same time to review all of the different offerings that we have to help people build, grow, and monetize their apps – and, for us, to go over everything that we’ve been doing and get feedback. We’ll have separate events and separate times when we make big changes or launch big new products, but that’s not what F8 is gonna be about going forward. It’s really about having this grown-up stable platform.
The Strap is from HTL Wireless and costs $20. If you buy one, stipulate that they use part of the proceeds to improve their hideous website.
“Do you think there is any situation where publishers would gladly accept $8 instead of $60?” asked Dubious Quality analyst Bill Harris in an e-mail to Wired.com. “If they endorse this idea, then they are endorsing used game sales. If game publishers admit there is a used game scenario that they would consider acceptable, then all their righteous indignation over used game sales would have to end, wouldn’t it?”
This week’s issue of Tokyo city guide Metropolis kindly provides a four-page spread of excerpts and side-boxes taken directly from the book, and it’s also currently featured on the magazine’s website.
Squeak has at least one advantage over Scratch: It’s available for Mac and Unix environments as well as Windows.* EDIT: Oops. Scratch is in fact available for other platforms, and was evidently developed using Squeak!* I’m going to give Squeak a try over the next week or so, and if there’s interest I’ll post again with my thoughts.
Although he wasn’t much of a role model for his kind, Cara Egan, spokeswoman for the Little People of America, was philosophical about Hank’s life, and death.
Luijten’s personal favorite is his “If Facebook were invented in the 90s” video, visible in the gallery above along with some of his other creations. To make it, he installed an ancient version of Netscape and ran Windows 3.11. (Easter egg: The woman in the profile picture is Kinna McInroe, who played Nina in the movie Office Space.)
The best proof that WaterSmart works happens to come from data generated by my own water utility. The California Water Foundation conducted a year-long trial of WaterSmart’s service with EBMUD, a water utility that serves 650,000 customers in the East Bay, across from San Francisco.
The Masters and Ph.D. students are certainly among the most concerned in the department. The initial proposal threatened to affect their education severely, and since then they have remained among the most active in opposing the cuts. It is felt that the undergraduates have an important stake in this too, but on the whole they do not seem to be as active or as bothered by the developments. (This is not to say that no undergraduates are not concerned about the cuts – a few certainly are in opposition to them and are worried about them as well.)
One of those sites caught in that crackdown (.pdf) was dajaz1.com. Operation in Our Sites, run by the Department of Homeland Security, accused the site of allowing its users to download pre-release music. But as it turns out, some of that music was sent to the popular blog by the artists or labels.
“Steve doesn’t give up. He’s very, very focused. So the things that he’s focused on he will stick with to an intense degree.”
Big Bang isn’t the first publisher to plumb the fan community for new talent. For decades, it was understood that fanzines and amateur press associations were where writers—particularly in genre fiction and comics—got their chops: Ray Bradbury’s first published stories appeared in his four-issue fanzine, Futuria Fantasia. And there’s a long tradition of what’s known as “filing off the serial numbers”: removing trademarked names, settings, and other details to republish fanfic as a new original work. (Often, this happened with “AU,” or alternate-universe, fanfiction, which was already so distant from the original that the changes were little more than cosmetic.) Legend has it that Lois McMaster Bujold’s Shards of Honor, the first book of her New York Times-bestselling Vorkosigan Saga, started as Star Trek fanfiction.
“Building with Flash or Silverlight in a way that lets you share information between the content appearing inside the plug-in and the rest of the page presents some challenges,” says Le Hegaret.
