war isnt nation vs nation.. its man vs man - thats why its such a fucking horror...

nobody understands shit until it happens to them and thats the problem - they are locked into their own little world, mistakenly imagining it to be the whole wide world out there - and everybody does this, confusing their own private bullshit for how "it really is" because they cant accept how insignificant they really are in the actual BIG scheme of things... every little personal thing has to be universally relevant - its just ass-backwards

Lot of truth in that. War is nation to nation and man to man imo. Yeah I'm pretty disgusted how too many people are ok with war as if it's a spectacle and if someone looks at you wrong... WAR!, especially when it isn't any of theirs. I honestly I'm hung up on why people want machine guns in their home and think that is an ideal world to live in and/or think the boogie man is coming to get them and then praise be to the God of Love, Jesus. Hmmm...
There was an interesting survey the other day. 65% of the people thought we needed boots on the ground to battle ISIS. However 65% of people said they had no interest personally in joining the military to ensure that the job got done.

The funny thing is that Daesh would grow infinitely in strength if a single western soldier entered Syria to fight on the side of Assad which would be the only side Russia would accept foreign intervention on. Do you realize that is exactly what Daesh wants? Once they can say "those are all invaders" they'd have the rebels and Saudi Arabia on their side. And Russia would only protect Assad, I doubt you'd see Russia protect US ground troops....

Anyone who thinks there is a western military solution to Syria/Iraq and yes, Afghanistan is lacking historical background knowledge.

Also war nowadays is not against other nations anymore... asymmetrical war can not be won with drone or air strikes without massive ground troops but in the same way you can not sent western ground troops into Syria.. it'd be suicide.

And how would you know a site has those unless you visit it in the first place?

It crashes your Firefox 42/43 Aside that, you can't know.. which is why a single malicious post containing a haxored GIF can currently crash an entire sites firefox using userbase/ currently = up to 43.0.3

(I guess now you know why the bug is hidden ,p)

PaleMoon is not affected.

Ps.: Have to mention this, but in the post where I read about it, it wasn't clear whether it was just a crash, or whether this bug can be used to reroute the crash report as well. From the sound of it, and the fact that they hid the actual bug report, you can assume it is a high priority critical issue. Should be fixed in 43.0.4 btw

PPs.: Btw, that also means Firefox on Android users are at risk for much longer, better to use default browser or whatever..

Until you see bug 1235605 fixed in Mozilla Firefox do not access any sites with areas where users can post direct opening images!

Direct opening images?

Embedded images ,)

Embedded = opened and parsed by your browser in frame. Meaning, yes, profile images (that are GIFS) could also be used to crash your phone or PC (firefox) browser. Not yet fixed either sadly ;/

Ps.: Sorry, should have said embedded gif

And yes, that means if you were figuring out how to prepare a gif a certain way (the bug is hidden for a reason and I am not linking to the twitter source of the exploit), a single profile pic on bluesnews could crash all firefox users...

There is also a Firefox bug dropped as 0-day during 32c3 that can apparently pwn your pc via single malformed GIF

Mozilla marked the bug as "hidden" so it's a remote code class exploit, in the wild. Don't use firefox anywhere where people can post untrusted images until this is fixed.

On the Wikipedia article I've certainly run into the issue being described. I think part of the problem is a lot of those entries are written by people who are used to writing for scientific journals, which assume the reader already has a higher level of knowledge about the topic. Also the writing itself is generally not presented in a way that is easily understood by most people. It takes a good amount of skill to "dumb down" a complex topic so it's accessible to a wider readership. I'll take overly complex articles I have to struggle to understand over ones that only tell half the information to keep it simple any day.

The reason they are written like that is because many are copied word-for-word from textbooks and journals. I've run into this dozens of times when quick-referencing aerospace equations. This isn't a case of an expert who can't "dumb it down" or ELI5. It's a case of folks who have no clue what they are copying just pasting it into a wiki article...

And the reason for that is that Wikipedia will flat out delete your stuff if you don't stick EXACTLY to journal texts, that literally nobody outside of their field can understand.

Wiki citation rule is the curse and bane of it all, not what you insinuate. Stuff is not allowed to be inserted unless you have a citation to prove it, and admins are not scientists, so if you translate complex science talk to be easy to understand, it counts as unique content (especially for admins who haven't got a clue about the topic), and you get deleted instantly. Since you can't cite anyone for a unique thought.

Ps.: Funnily, KSP and orbital math are the only reason I recently used wikipedia ;p And the articles there are abysmal, it took forum topics on KSP that completely translated these wiki entries for me to even grasp wtf I am supposed to enter where in the calculation (since you have very different variables in KSP)

Steam achievements are not as reliable an indicator of gameplay habits as you might think... At least not in this instance. Or look at Fallout 4, 10% of people don't have the achievement for exiting the vault (finishing the tutorial), lol.

I think that's just a margin of error of sorts, accounting for people who own it but haven't played it, play offline and never have that stuff synced, don't ever have Steam running or just have glitches that cause them not to activate, etc. If an achievement is near 90% unlocked, then that's virtually the same as everyone having it.

And you can run GTA on its own just through the Rockstar Social Club thing, right? Can any of the fellas around here that despise Steam tell us whether doing so means Steam cheeves never pop for you at all?

No that's not an error 10% is the lower end of the estimate of people that buy stuff and never, ever play it. Steamspy did a piece on this in a far better example, where a few devs put in an achievement for starting the game, and over 30% of legit owners did not have it.... 5 or so years after release.

Bing is ok nowadays... but google has learned what I want with certain results, while bing doesn't even list that particular thing in the same results.

Good example is, say looking for
# "Aquatic Language"

Google lists MAL and AniDB (where you might wanna go if you have watched it, to flag it as watched)

Bing does not list MAL nor ANIdb not on page 1 to 5 anyway. These are the 2 main anime sites, where you sort your anime collection. Not having this as result means BING does not know wtf I am even looking for. (Ie, it thinks this is a movie, not an anime)

For you, MAL or AniDB is likely not going to be in the results from google either. This is why google is still superior, if I am logged in, it knows what I am looking for with a result, it doesn't just give me wikipedia (something I rarely if ever click on when it comes to Anime search).

That said, some stuff drives me crazy with google search, like that it never lists the result date. If you look for updates to some news google loves listing you stuff from 2010 or 2008 ~.~

Bottom line: I use both, for different things. Bing really improved, but the "filter bubble" of google search is extremely useful sometimes.

OK, PC question time....

I got my new CPU installed without a hitch, yay! Pulled the rig apart gave it a good cleaning blew everything out. And doesn't it always suck when you put them back together and then it doesn't work, so again, yay when it does.

So the BIOS sees the CPU ok - AMD FC-8350 8 core 4Ghz. However, it shows my Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1866 RAM as 1333, and it's currently running at 1559. When I look at the memory profile it shows that in - I think - JCP it displays as 1333 but in XMP it shows 1866. I seem to recall having this issue when I first set this rig up last year - as everything was new except the CPU and GPU.

I set the mem spd to 1866 but it doesn't seem to make a lick of difference. Any ideas? The board is an ASUs M5A97 R2.0.

Also, how crazy is this weather? I actually did this on my outside workbench in t-shirt. It's 12C atm, and supposed to be 14C tomorrow, yowsa!

Weather is crazy as fuck in Germany too, 14C today.. , as for your XMP problem, most 1866 profiles require ram voltage higher than the default. Meaning your ram is probably rated for higher voltage than it is auto assigned by the bios.

If the ram notices the timings can't be achieved it downclocks to the next lower profile. Did you check ram voltage on the sticks for 1866 rating and in the bios match up?

I always thought vacuum spheres are super easy to build, heck we had one in school. Once vacuum, it wouldn't leak, because the vacuum pressed the 2 seals together and the only way to actually remove it ever again was to force the seal apart via mechanical mechanisms.

So how can such a thing "accidentally" leak?
