Bank of America had a feature that generated a new credit card number for use in online purchasers. It was good for a single merchant, you could set the monthly credit limit, you could set the expiration date, and the charges would appear in your regular credit card. Best thing ever! I used it, and never had need for PayPal, or any other payment processor.
Why BoA took it away last year, I'll never know...
... and elsewhere... From almost 5 centuries ago...
"The large fireplace with gilded hood (ocak) stands opposite a two-tiered fountain (çeşme), skilfully decorated in coloured marble. The flow of water was meant to prevent any eavesdropping, while providing a relaxed atmosphere to the room. "
Absolutely, first thing that crossed my mind!
I had one and in 1995. When receiving a security briefing, I told the briefer I had one, and that we should update the briefing materials to talk about these watches.
She was not delighted at the prospect... :-) :-)
If you are running flash, especially in full screen kiosk mode, it is not feasible to upgrade Chrome.
Because Google took out a user's ability to always allow flash from specific sites using the chrome://flags/#enable-ephemeral-flash-permission flag in v. 69, anyone using flash in an unattended kiosk needs to use an earlier version. (Never mind that Google doesn't even have an ftp site for old versions, you need to get them from who.knows.what.malware.lies.here.com.)
See https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/chrome/7y0gbgs06L8/3ehByJReGQAJ or many other posts from aggravated users.
So much for doing no evil. I wish I could take back the many thousands of $ I gave Google, buying many Nexus'es, Pixels, storage, Fi subscriptions, etc...
"When software authors pull the "we know better, so no configuration for you" stunt, users get angry!"
Well said! After 5 years, I still have not forgiven Mathworks for going from the perfectly functional menu interface in Matlab to the Microsoft inspired 'ribbon' abomination.
(The drone, I mean, not the desk.)
So, which craft landed without incident, the drone, the King Air, or both?
"There's also no news of where the drone struck. As the craft landed without incident, The Register's aviation desk will assume it wasn't chopped up by the plane's propellors with attendant spray of plastic and metal."
A King Air prop, with a PT6A driving it, could probably shred a DJI and never know it.
Let me get this straight, if he were to get a CAA commercial drone operator license, then the railway would have no standing in the matter, right? (Unless he actually hit a train or landed on their tracks or right of way.)
Obviously, the easy solution is to give it a static address that is in a segment blocked from routing to outside the LAN subnet. There is no need for most drives to face the cloud - as long as you have one machine on the network providing ntp service so that they can keep reasonable time/date synch,
When the My Book Live's cry that they can't reach the WD mothership to get their update, it makes me so sad. :-)
The first My Cloud I bought had an arbitration clause in the terms and conditions that a customer had to accept to be able to use the drive. So I sent it back.
I have bought about a dozen of the old My Book Live drives (seven of which are right in front of me now) Only one of the MBL's has so far failed - not the disk itself, but the partition. (MBL uses a goofy block size) so I just converted to an internal drive, reformatted and reloaded it. (Seven days of the week, seven drives, each backed up weekly = daily backup,)
As long as that arbitration clause is there, I'm not buying any more WD stuff.
I am sure it can fly. It can get up to the required INDICATED airpeed and fly about.
Tougher on landing or takeoff though. The actual speed over ground would be hundreds of miles per hour. So even if there were a 10 mile long runway on Mars, the tuchdown speed would be something like 600 mph.

OK, it was a small board, but Excel was the most convenient thing I had right then.
Select all, set column heights and row widths to 0.05", and use borders/lines with 0.025" thickness, and voila PCB design tool... Can do multiple layers using different colors.
Here is a sample I just did in 5 minutes...
My wife fell and broke her ankle in Positano on the Amalfi coast, right down by the beach, 200 feet below the main roadway. The Italian Red Cross showed up in a "Triporteur Piaggio Ape 401" (think Inspector Clouseau as phone repairman), put her on a stretcher across the back, with me next to her, and we went put-putting in the labyrinths up to the road - where there was a big ambulance waiting... A lot more efficient (and quicker) than a boat or helicopter...
(You haven't lived until you have ridden in an ambulance on the Amalfi coastal highway to the hospital in Sorrento. On arrival you will see "Game Over" flashing in your mind...)
"I beg to disagree. I have a great need for a device that will flash an LED a negative number of times - it would eliminate the annoyance of all those other blinking LEDs in the bedroom at night. "
No, what you need is a DED - flashed a positive number of times. Digikey has lots of high intensity dark emitting diodes...
