    Gee he sure looks young back then, I can’t imagine he doesn’t hold the same convictions about money now that he did 7 years ago. I would hope as he gets older and matures his convictions will continue to evolve. Until he or Marcy or the others give me reason to question their ethics I [...]

    Glenn’s already answered these false speculations https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/03/01/journalistic-independence/ , please take time to read it. As for saying nothing, why should they spend all their time trying to answer every conspiracy theory that comes along. They have better things to do, like publish facts.

    With hackers rampant everywhere that’s all they need to do. If I was a pilot I wouldn’t set foot in an aircraft somebody could take control of remotely. That has nothing but disaster written all over it. CIA false flags made to order sheesh.

    Just as too much heat will affect electronic circuitry so will cold. Not knowing what electronics are in the 777 and their ratings I can just take a WAG, but as a references here you can see the com radio and transponder operating temp only rated for -20* Celsius. The Aloha flight was the exception and [...]

    Not necessarily, look at Aloha Airlines flight 243, its amazing the damage they can take and still keep flying.

    but rapid decompression wouldn’t explain communication system failure before pilots were incapacitated

    I sorry I don’t understand , do you mean the transponder and ACARS being switched off? As I said earlier I don’t know how the electronics would have behaved under the extreme cold. It might have just caused them to fail or behave erratic. [...]

    If it was reprogrammed. I have no idea how electronics would behave at -45 degrees Fahrenheit (about average temp at 35,000 Ft.) or with rapid or explosive decompression in the cabin there would have been crap flying everywhere.(just my theory anyway).

    Sure seems like an awful lot of work to go through just to take some out. I guess some spook with plenty of time on his hands that wanted to do his version of D._B._Cooper might try it but it would involve quite a support staff which means more witnesses. If you could get a ground [...]

  • Even with open source software I don’t see how they expect to have a secure operating system until they can lock down the hardware to make sure no back doors are being installed in the chipsets. Its interesting they chose something besides the Calypso chipset which uses the ARM7 processor which according to Wikipedia the iPod also uses. Maybe they know its already compromised.

  • Great to hear, will watch for your next post. With XP going unsupported Ubuntu looked like the next best option. Thanks.

  • If the FCC was to do their job they would split the backbone providers and the content providers up and regulate the backbone providers as a common carrier. Netflix is just setting a bad president paying extortion money to the gatekeepers, their greed is endless.
    On a side note Jane, how did your switch to Linux go? I’m planning to take the plunge and was wondering of the pitfalls.

    Thanks for the reply Wendy. Today it seems to be loading fine. I was surprised when I did a trace last night to see the server was in Australia, that might be some of the slowness.

    But do you think Obama cares about anybody elses election? He’s just too busy trying to show the other chicken hawks he’s no Carter. It’s going to be interesting when the dollar gets removed from the petrodollar and inflation runs rampid, will his neocon buddies still be up on stage with him thumping their chest.

    from your link:

    Just as Putin is unlikely to give back Crimea, you can forget about a company as growth-hungry as Exxon willingly backing away from its Kremlin connections out of some perceived patriotic American duty. As Tillerson’s predecessor Lee Raymond famously said (quoted in Steve Coll’s book Private Empire: ExxonMobil and American Power): “I’m not a U.S. company and I don’t make decisions based on what’s good for the U.S.”

    I don’t think Obama should expect too much backing from Exxon.

    Ed, sorry this is OT but you seem to be the “go-to-guy” for information on this subject. <blockquote>Shell freezes its Arctic exploration campaign , I was just wondering if you had further info on the announcement.

    As per RT news :

    Converting each jet to a UAV costs the Air Force an average of $2.6 million

    seems kinda expensive for a glorified clay pigeon. They must be really good as the Air Force has 243 on order.

    It must be how the panels are produced, but peel and stick thin film is not new. United Solar Ovonic of Auburn Hills, Michigan was producing a flexible solar panel a few years ago that you could stick on a steel roof between the ribs of the steel panels. Unfortunately they went bankrupt.
