Fucking dumbass Swedes... ugh. Hopefully they get hacked immediately and get their biometrics stolen, on a small scale, so they realize how stupidly public any RFID type system is.

If you are too stupid to keep track of a keycard, you're too stupid to avoid getting your RFID chip info stolen by determined hackers.

That probably comes across as too harsh, but this is how we ended up with the Internet of Things botnets, and other public menaces; from people too lazy to do things securely and correctly.

On the one hand, Swedes are willingly contributing to the coming distopia.

On the other hand, it must be nice to have such faith and trust in your government.

It's interesting that they are touting the Quake engine for this. Watching the trailer, I'm reminded of a Build engine game. For example, all the explosions are 2D sprites, whereas the original Quake had 3D explosions. This game looks more like Duke than Quake.

I Bought Used Voting Machines on eBay for $100 Apiece. What I Found Was Alarming.

Selling voting machines on eBay? What could go wrong?

The tamper-proof screws didn’t work, all the computing equipment was still intact, and the hard drives had not been wiped. The information I found on the drives, including candidates, precincts, and the number of votes cast on the machine, were not encrypted.

Ships on the shop floor can be opened, explored, but not flown.

You can look, but don't touch! If you want to touch, you gotta have cold, hard cash.

the gratification they are feeling at Hello Games since the rollout of No Man's Sky NEXT and its weekly free content updates.

Well, glad they were able to reach that state on the back of the $60 I paid for an incomplete product at launch. Damage is already done Sean Murray.

Congrats to the Mega Millions winner, especially because you live in South Carolina, one of eight states were you are allowed to claim the prize anonymously. Heck of a deal.
I was hoping it was someone who comes here and they were going to celebrate by buying all the Blues regulars a ton of games.

So if they take the payout - which I'm guessing everyone does - it's half, right? Still 750 mil or whatevs. That's just effin crazy.
The cash amount was just over $900m, and the feds take 37% off the top. So, a bit south of $750m but still plenty. If you actually spend some time thinking about it. The prospect is daunting. Especially, if you couldn't claim the prize anonymously. Even if you can or are smart about it and hide as well as you can behind trusts, people are going to figure it out. Anyone you know personally, is going to figure it out even if you don't tell them directly. And eventually, word will leak out.

Hence, you will have people pestering you for money. Is this reason not to claim a winning ticket? Probably not. But isn't just people asking for money, it is the idiots who will try to break into the house because "you must have money laying around". Truthfully if you gave me a choice between the $1.5B and the $1M prize I would be tempted to take just the single million. Pay off the mortgage, and live mostly the same life with just a bit more financial security. Not saying I would, but I would definitely consider it.

Here's a story about a couple that won the lottery, then had their kid abducted. The kidnapper tried to get them to give him the money for the kid. It didn't end well.

I stopped buying any Paradox games. They milk their playerbase with small DLC packs constantly. Stellaris is not as bad as some of their other games, but I got to the point I just have deleted all their games off of my steam account.

You don't *have* to get the DLC though, do you? Just play vanilla.

Why would people invest into something that will die 2 years later once BF6 comes out and changes mechanics again.

I think players like to invest and become skilled at something, and not have that suddenly taken away from them when either the game dies, or the mechanics change.

1. Two years is a long time to play a multiplayer game. I would think people would have moved on anyway, for the most part.

2. There are still multiplayer games of BF 2142 going on, so just because the new one comes out doesn't mean everyone will stop playing.

IIRC this particular test was of a special nuclear powered 'neutron bomb' that was only needed to detonate in the general vicinity of the incoming missile, not directly hit it. The nuclear explosion of a multi-megaton-sized bomb meant it's kill radius would be pretty huge. The neutrons, coupled with intense X-Rays, would bombard the incoming missile and destroy it before it re-entered the atmosphere. The test in '71 in Alaska proved there would be very little nuclear fallout from such a blast, again IIRC.

Right, these were "clean" nuclear tipped anti-ballistic missile missiles.

It's not just the math. To think that shooting down missiles is easy just means that you have not applied much thought to the problem.
It's call "rocket science" for a reason.

You seem to willfully ignore the fact that the human race is really, REALLY FUCKING GOOD at rocket science. We are so good at it that private companies are now doing it; private companies that now just make the missiles come back down and land on a barge.
As impressed with SpaceX as I am, I think we've stagnated a bit in rocketry the past few decades. Humans haven't been to the moon for almost 50 years. We haven't been to Mars. We have no SSTO spacecraft. I thought we'd be much further along by 2020.

But in any case, Russia has designed a missile meant to defeat ballistic shields, and I readily admit that I didn't think their arsenal was that advanced. (And I even read Foxtrot Alpha!)
Tyler Rogoway left FTA a couple years ago. Have you been to his new digs yet?

Fortunately, Putin owns Trump, so no danger of a nuclear war for the next six years.
True though that may be, Russia isn't the only one with nukes. Things are heating up with China in the South China Sea, and one false step could spiral out of control, Duke of Ferdinand-style.

Of particular concern would be the "dirty bomb" effect caused by a missiles radiocative material raining down, not as damaging as detonation it's still something to keep in mind.

Most of such debris would fall into the ocean, or even better, Canada.

Don't worry about Cutter. He's played all the Fallouts. He knows what to do.
