As it turns out, many of his security-minded peers don’t use it either. The reason: If someone is going to try and attack them, they’re likely to use a new technique, one that most antivirus products will miss. “If you asked the average security expert whether they use antivirus or not,” Grossman says “a significant proportion of them do not.”
Last fall at GeekMom we wrote about guerrilla knitter Robyn Love’s “Messages to the Universe” project for Maker Faire NYC. Robyn had put a call out to fabric artists requesting donations of 12″ x 12″ squares that were then sewn together into yarn “flames” and draped from one of the rockets on the site at New York’s Hall of Science. Previously-collected messages of hope were also written out on cards and pinned onto many of the squares. At the close of Maker Faire, the knitted flames were cut apart, sewn into blankets, and distributed to the homeless through Warm Up Americawhile the messages were collected into an art book. For my family, the project was one of the most memorable visuals in a weekend stuffed with eye candy, and we were delighted when it won a special design award at the Faire.
So Kemp proposed a slight change to the NASA’s software release process. Since everyone was looking at descriptions rather than the software itself, why not define in advance where the software was going to go, and then work with the developer community build it? It wasn’t exactly the typical open-source way, but it kept NASA’s lawyers and policy people happy.
The letters come with a life-long gag order, so businesses that receive such letters are prohibited from revealing to anyone, including customers who may be under investigation, that the government has requested records of transactions. Violation of a gag order can be punishable by up to five years in prison.
But really, he won, even in those seasons, about as often as you could reasonably expect given his offensive support. Given five or more runs to work with, Drysdale’s record over those two seasons was 23-1, which is pretty near perfect. Given four runs to work with, he was 7-5, which is so-so. Given three runs to work with, he was 4-6, which is pretty decent. Given two runs to work with, he was 3-6, which is excellent…. he won all the games that he should have won, and he split the ones that he should have split.
Looks more like the spherical robot Haro from Mobile Suit Gundam, than a tricorder (“A Jet-Powered PDA for Astronauts,” June 10, 2004). In it, Haro did many of the things NASA says this thing does including move around with jets in a weightless environment.
At Sprint, Patterson said the AFL-CIO is waging a campaign to get William Esrey to give back 3 million stock options to shareholders that were “improperly” awarded despite the failed merger with WorldCom.

As an added precaution, LinkedIn will hide recruiters at your company, as well as any head hunters affiliated with it. Open Candidates is free for job hunters, but employers must pay for LinkedIn’s premium service tier to hunt for prospective employees.
TOKYO, JAPAN – Ken Shishido is sitting at the far end of the table, giving the lecture he always gives.
The StunRay emits a controlled swath of white light, which claims to be about 10 times more intense than an aircraft landing light. (The company’s website says it is bright enough to read a newspaper a mile away).
After the yeast is prepared, it goes into the WinePod, but you can’t just dump it in all at once. The process continues by resting the cup of yeast and water on top of the grape-juice-and-skin-combo (now called “must”) then slowly adding a tablespoon of cold must into the warm yeast mixture, one tablespoon per minute. Once the temperature is cool enough, I finally dump it in, crank the heat up to 70 degrees, and let it rest overnight…certain that I’ve managed to kill the yeast somewhere along the way.

However, plenty of anecdotal evidence indicates that groups like Semich’s are putting up free hot spots, while the for-pay ones are suffering.
Vladimir’s stall is among hundreds that line Izmailovo’s muddy pathways like a set of crooked teeth. Vendors hawk everything from pirated DVDs to antique rifles, just like any weekend market in the US. But Izmailovo’s proximity to the famed cosmonaut training ground Star City – 90 minutes away by pothole-riddled streets – makes this bazaar unique. There are dozens of vendors peddling the same kind of wares as Vladimir. With a hand-rolled cigarette dangling from his mouth, he shows off artifacts that would be right at home in a museum clearance sale – an $800 leather headset, a $1,000 heat-resistant jumper with a Russian flag on the sleeve, and his prize, a $40,000 space suit from a 1971 Soyuz spacecraft.
GitHub’s status site also says that “search remains unavailable,” though in my testing searching worked just fine so long as you weren’t entering words like “RSA,” “password,” “secret_token” or the like.

But others are more than happy to dig into their wallets and start building up their decks again.
“The typical historical narrative goes that after the war and after Sputnik there’s this huge push to get more scientists in the field,” Frederick-Frost said. There are some wrinkles in that story, though. “If it was purely about mobilizing as many scientists as possible, the sets would have been made to be attractive to far more flavors of people than just white boys,” she said. “More so, the ‘science’ promoted wasn’t completely open ended; it’s especially the stuff with defensive or industrial utility.”
Have you ever wondered why you can’t see movie reviews from Rotten Tomatoes when you’re on IMDb, or read what your Facebook friends thought about a new book while you’re on Amazon? Sadly, information is still trapped in little silos on individual websites. Someday, we’ll look back at all these silos of information and laugh about how lame the web was.
The network’s official Olympics site, NBCOlympics.com, will show for free, on a delayed basis, the complete runs and routines for the top finishers and for all U.S. participants in almost every event, with highlights provided for team sports like hockey, said Gary Zenkel, president of NBC Olympics.
“Being entrepreneurial I understand,” Krurkchiev says. “It looks like this guy is working really hard, but it’s really just more people. By farming it out, he essentially parallelized it, which is really clever.”

The “In Development” section of the European World of Warcraft website is currently playing host to a rundown of the features that make Ulduar so special, including boss battles that require players to pilot the game’s siege vehicles.
Taff promotes Boong-Ga Boong-Ga as a safe outlet for players’ pent-up frustrations. Academics and politicians have often blamed video games, rock music and TV for promoting everything from obesity to mass murder. But although female straphangers in the Tokyo subway system are often groped and pinched, it may be a stretch to reproach Boong-Ga Boong-Ga and similar games for causing such sexual assaults.
Later research found that the GMO corn likely will not be disastrous for Monarch butterflies. But Losey said the effect on 200 other types of butterflies and moths is still unknown.
