2 1/4 cups flour (at Corriher’s recommendation I used a bread flour which is in the medium range of protein content)
Under U.S. copyright law, Google is not required to deploy copyright filters. But rights holders are embracing it as a way to make money online. Even Viacom, which is suing YouTube for $1 billion for copyright violations, uses Content ID and its lawsuit only covers alleged copyright violations before the filter’s deployment.

After spending a great deal of time directing the building of his castle and the surrounding grounds, and then enjoying it, Gillette died in 1936. The castle was then purchased by the state in 1943 and made into a state park.
Code Red II can only infect systems running the Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system, and only if Microsoft’s Internet Information Server (IIS) – a Web server application – is also installed and active. If a system has already been patched against the original version of Code Red, it cannot be infected by Code Red II.
But while Apple continues to press the issue with its Switch campaign, which features disgruntled Windows users who switched to the Mac, a détente seems to have been reached among ordinary Mac and Windows users: Apple-hating sites have all but disappeared, Mac OS X is getting widespread respect, Mac fans are more confident, and Windows users apparently couldn’t care less what computers other people use.
I first heard of Meanwhile from Scott McCloud’s site back in February and made a mental note to look for it. So when I came across it at Floating World Comics during my recent trip to Portland, I didn’t have to think twice. (Buy Meanwhile? Yes.) The book was originally a hand-printed black-and-white deal, which you can experience in its online form, but the professionally-printed, full-color version is definitely worth the price. Shiga has added more pages and made some changes, and the pages are laminated, which is great because you’ll be following those little lines around with your finger and flipping back and forth with the tabs.
“They are a radical generation,” said Ziad Abbas, co-director of Ibdaa. “The children look for shooting. It reflects something inside them.”
After that stint ended, Rosenberger planned to go back to college, but a St. Louis Fortune 1000 firm flung a lot of money at him, and he handled their security until 1999, when his wife decided she wanted to move to Iowa to be near her mother.

But why would Amazon do something so seemingly cutthroat? Margins. “Apparel margins are generally very high, much higher than electronics,” says Sucharita Mulpuru, a retail analyst with market research firm Forrester. “They can be as high as 80 percent depending the product, price, and materials and labor used.”
Transport for London (TfL) will reward passengers who set up the Oyster Auto top-up in the next month with five free iTunes songs. The Oyster Auto top-up automatically refills (by charging your credit card) TfL Oyster transit cards with credit when balance gets low. With Auto top-up, passengers do not need to stop by a ticket booth or machine to add value to their cards. So what’s the catch? Automatically refilling cards somewhat makes passengers unaware of the amount of money spent on transit – sort of like giftcards where the cash is intangible. TfL, however, has a policy where you will never pay more than the price of a day pass if you make enough journeys. Oyster Cards also provide a significant savings over the paper ticket prices: a trip in Central London Zone 1 costs £1.50 (3 USD) with the Oyster or £4 (8 USD) with paper tickets. The Oyster – iTunes deal can be found on the TfL website and will expire on 29 February 2008.
Customizing wallpaper will work much the same way. Spoonflower is currently beta-testing a wallpaper product, and expects the service to launch by November.
“AT&T is involved in a number of groups in 802.11 and a number of others,” AT&T spokeswoman Ellen Zundl said. “Joining this (HomeRF) organization is yet another way for us to keep open-minded about various technologies.”
**What the heck is a “unique polymer surface”? I’ve been trying for several days to find out through the Internet but so far I have come up short. A friend and I did some mutual sleuthing through the patent and trademark records, but so far have come short. If you know more about it, feel free to comment below.
Berkeley-based Magnatune calls its approach “open music,” a blend of shareware, open source and grass-roots activism.
Next up was the police, according to the Department of Justice guide for victims of cyberstalking, which I ended up consulting frequently. A few days after filing with IC3 I gathered together physical copies of some of the letters Danny had sent, including to the New York attorney general, and headed to my local precinct. I had done hours of research in preparation for this moment, and I felt confident as I walked into the building.
The car was hauled to our garage wearing a large yellow diaper to contain the fluid pouring out of the gearbox. Nick got out of the car, and what followed was nothing short of remarkable. Mike, along with mechanics Kent and James, set about the car with a calm but determined focus, removing and replacing the gearbox with a spare. Turns out the 2.5 hours needed to do the job is leisurely compared to the 45-minute jobs they’d often do in rallying.
Through his business, Bidding Expert, Boruch allegedly funneled as much as $80,000 to $100,000 a week on behalf of the two fraudsters, who delivered the cash to Boruch in person, sometimes by tossing envelopes into an open window in his car.
From his amazing work on the Sandman comics to his collaboration with Terry Pratchett on possibly one of the most entertaining novels of the last 20 years, Good Omens, * to his work with younger subjects such as Coraline and The Graveyard Book. Gaiman has never ceased to inspire and delight readers of all ages and temperaments. His fantasy is ever reaching, ranging from the struggle of the everyday soul caught in a less than ordinary underworld (Neverwhere) to the plights of put-upon gods losing their faithful (American Gods*).
However, Sheehan said being able to publish something is of no value if the government can ban people from seeing it. The real issue, he added, is whether the public is being denied access to material that is protected by the Constitution.
Mossberg said he had no problem with Howell reporting the conference on her weblog because she wasn’t subject to the gag rule.
The alignment and density of the nanotubes captures photons from the wee wavelengths of ultraviolet to wide, hot infrared—and all the wavelengths of visible light in between. Then they push that energy out the back as heat. With just the barest fraction of photons that hit the stuff bouncing off, even at a glancing angle, practically none reach a human eye and trigger a human brain. So when you look at something coated in Vantablack, you see a blank. A void. “It’s a nuts material,” Jensen says.
Both the Times and the P-I have maintained an Internet presence for some years.
While the two newspapers have separate editorial departments, they share advertising and distribution functions under a joint operating agreement.
Despite the limitations, the ability to share video footage of runs allowed speedrunners to collaborate and learn from each other.
As my family heads into the holiday season, I’m faced with creating a plan that will not only keep the four of them busy but, siblings being what they are, keeping them busy enough not to drive each other crazy.
But that’s just the beginning. Each weekend, WIRED rounds up the security vulnerabilities and privacy updates that we didn’t break or cover in depth this week, but which deserve your attention nonetheless. As always, to read the full story linked in each post, click on the headlines. And be safe out there!
Along with “innumerable messages of sympathy, ‘congratulations’ … thanks, I received and, without doubt, will receive messages of disapproval, contempt, insult.”
I want to provide you some tips and resources here to help our readers be aware and prepared. You might remember my similar request to remain prepared with the Center for Disease Control’s Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse guide last fall. Or one of my multiple pleas to invest in a NOAA Weather Radio or a smartphone app to keep weather-aware.
How do you spend bitcoins? Trade them? Keep people from stealing them? Bitcoin is a math-based currency. That means that the rules that govern bitcoin’s accounting are controlled by cryptography. Basically, if you own some bitcoins, you own a private cryptography key that’s associated with an address on the internet that contains a balance in the public ledger. The address and the private key let you make transactions.
