It's a fine line, +Carlos Miguel Pereira​. I will cut most people some slack if they appear to have tried.

I took the "race" IAT test, and came out with a "strong preference for black people over white people", and I'm one of 2%. Sign of my atheism?

Anyone got the guts to take the test and report results honestly?
Skin-tone (Light Skin-Dark Skin IAT).This IAT requires the ability to recognize light and dark-skinned faces. It often reveals an automatic preference for light-skin relative to dark-skin. Age. Age (young-old IAT). This IAT requires the ability to distinguish old from young faces.

Yeah. Blah blah blah blah blah. Another waffler. You should write for spammers. You're one of those people who use a lot of words, and the sentence structure works, but you're not saying anything of any logic, or making any sort of a point that I can fathom.

Does anyone remember Maximum Overdrive? ;)

Via +Thomas Heine.
 
Unbelievable. #infosec folks have been warning against this for YEARS. They said: separate infotainment from steering/breaks etc. Do not implement wireless control over this. Have good security measures. This can kill people. It can turn cars into weapons.

And here is a car you can control over the internet - COMPLETELY. From CD player to brakes - thousands of Jeeps can be turned into remote murder weapons, for both the people in them and those around them.

EVERY Jeep Cherokee should be immediately grounded. And let them pay a 500 million fine - just to ensure no car maker tries to save 5 bucks on a 50K car by not separating driving from the fscking entertainment system!!!

Or are we going to wait until a few people are killed? Or for a cyber war where cars are used to take down bridges by driving into them?

I was thinking more along the lines of a murder plot.  Straight out of a John Grisham novel!

Can anyone confirm if the Senkatel Education Chromebook also uses the "enguarde" board name?

I for one hope I have bloody good insulation before this happens.
A new model of the Sun's solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun's 11-year heartbeat. The model draws on dynamo effects in two layers of the Sun, one close to the surface and one deep within its convection zone. Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the 'mini ice age' that began in 1645.

He makes an awful lot of sense, to me.
 
" Their depression—25% decline in GDP and 25% unemployment, with youth unemployment twice that—is because they did what was demanded of them, not because of their failure to do so. It was the predictable and predicted response to the austerity"

Now with added Winky. ;)
This page contains a script which will download and flash the latest custom coreboot firmware builds I've made for 28 models of Intel based Chromebook/box/base. Note that flashing one of these ROM's will remove the ability to run ChromeOS in all but 3 cases. PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ THE FAQ!

Yes, I've had it where Anaconda crashes unless you completely wipe the ChromeOS partitions off beforehand.

This is how much lint you might find in your C710 after 2 years. It was literally sitting between the fan and the heatsink fins, completely stopping any air from getting out, and causing the C710 to shut itself down under heavy use. It wasn't immediately obvious this is what was happening until I took the keyboard and the big fan sticker off. Never seen a heatsink get completely blocked like that before.
