    "New evidence involving the ancient poop of some of the huge and astonishing creatures that once roamed Australia indicates the primary cause of their extinction around 45,000 years ago was likely a result of humans, not climate change," reports Phys.org. schwit1 quotes their report on new analysis of a prehistoric sediment core from the Indian Ocean off the coast of Australia. The core contains chronological layers of material blown and washed into the ocean, including dust, pollen, ash and spores from a fungus called Sporormiella that thrived on the dung of plant-eating mammals, said CU Boulder Professor Gifford Miller, who participated in the study... Fungal spores from plant-eating mammal dung were abundant in the sediment core layers from 150,000 years ago to about 45,000 years ago, when they went into a nosedive, said Miller...

    "An asteroid going boldly through the universe now carries a new name that honors actor Will Wheaton, who played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation," reports CNET. An anonymous reader quotes their article. The announcement showed up on Twitter Wednesday from NASA's Ron Baalke, who describes himself as a "space explorer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory". Wheaton is in good company with other Star Trek alumni. Asteroid 7307 Takei is named for Sulu actor George Takei and 68410 Nichols gets its name from Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura. There's also asteroid 4659 Roddenberry for Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. "Today, I found out that I kind of get to be in space and live right here on Earth..." Wheaton wrote on his blog Wednesday, describing his life-long interest in space exploration.

    Halfway through the "Brains vs. AI" poker competition, an AI named Libratus is trouncing its human opponents, who are four of the world's top professional players. One of the pros, Jimmy Chou, said he and his colleagues initially underestimated Libratus, but have come to regard it as one tough player. "The bot gets better and better every day," Chou said. "It's like a tougher version of us"... Chou said he and the other pros have shared notes and tips each day, looking for weaknesses they can each exploit. "The first couple of days, we had high hopes," Chou said. "But every time we find a weakness, it learns from us and the weakness disappears the next day."

However, Gale did have remote software installed on the device which allowed him to track whenever it came online.

Gale took the opportunity to remote into the laptop, only to find that the not-too-bright thief was using his laptop to login to her Facebook account. The thief eventually left her Facebook account open and left the room, after which Gale had the opportunity to snoop through her profile and obtain all of her private information.

Given that Gale was able to see her phone numbers listed on Facebook, he sent text messages to all of those numbers saying that he was going to report her to the ...

    alphadogg quotes Network World: The Free Software Foundation Tuesday announced a major rethinking of the software projects that it supports, putting top priority on a free mobile operating system, accessibility, and driver development, among other areas. The foundation has maintained the High Priority Projects list since 2005, when it contained just four free software projects. [That rose to 12 projects by 2008, though the changelog shows at least seven projects have since been removed.] Today's version mostly identifies priority areas, along with a few specific projects in key areas. The new list shows the FSF will continue financially supporting Replicant, their free version of Android, and they're also still supporting projects to create a free software replacement for Skype with real-time voice and video capabilities. But they're now also prioritizing various projects to replace Siri, Google Now, Alexa, and Cortana with a free-software personal assistant, which they view as "cruci...

    In 1962, 24-year-old Donald Knuth began writing The Art of Computer Programming -- and 55 years later, he's still working on it. An anonymous reader quotes Knuth's web site at Stanford: Volume 4B will begin with a special section called 'Mathematical Preliminaries Redux', which extends the 'Mathematical Preliminaries' of Section 1.2 in Volume 1 to things that I didn't know about in the 1960s. Most of this new material deals with probabilities and expectations of random events; there's also an introduction to the theory of martingales. You can have a sneak preview by looking at the current draft of pre-fascicle 5a (52 pages), last updated 18 January 2017. As usual, rewards will be given to whoever is first to find and report errors or to make valuable suggestions. I'm particularly interested in receiving feedback about the exercises (of which there are 125) and their answers (of which there are 125). Over the years Knuth gave out over $20,000 in rewards, though most people didn't cas...

    An anonymous reader quotes a Christian Science Monitor report on "a bill that would essentially ban large-scale renewable energy" in Wyoming. The new Wyoming bill would forbid utilities from using solar or wind sources for their electricity by 2019, according to Inside Climate News... The bill would require utilities to use "eligible resources" to meet 95 percent of Wyoming's electricity needs in 2018, and all of its electricity needs in 2019. Those "eligible resources" are defined solely as coal, hydroelectric, natural gas, nuclear, oil, and individual net metering... Utility-scale wind and solar farms are not included in the bill's list of "eligible resources," making it illegal for Wyoming utilities to use them in any way if the legislation passes. The bill calls for a fine of $10 per megawatt-hour of electricity from a renewable source to be slapped on Wyoming utilities that provide power from unapproved sources to in-state customers. The bill also prohibits utilities from raising...

    "Deadlines imposed by browser makers deprecating support for the weakened SHA-1 hashing algorithm have arrived," writes Slashdot reader msm1267. "And while many websites and organizations have progressed in their migrations toward SHA-2 and other safer hashing algorithms, pain points and potential headaches still remain." Threatpost reports: Starting on Jan. 24, Mozilla's Firefox browser will be the first major browser to display a warning to its users who run into a site that doesn't support TLS certificates signed by the SHA-2 hashing algorithm... "SHA-1 deprecation in the context of the browser has been an unmitigated success. But it's just the tip of the SHA-2 migration iceberg. Most people are not seeing the whole problem," said Kevin Bocek, VP of security strategy and threat intelligence for Venafi. "SHA-1 isn't just a problem to solve by February, there are thousands more private certificates that will also need migrating"... Experts warn the move to SHA-2 comes with a wide r...

    Hackaday reports that Asus has "quietly released their Tinker board that follows the Pi form factor very closely, and packs a 1.8 GHz quad-core ARM Cortes A17 alongside an impressive spec At £55 (about $68) where this is being written it's more expensive than the Pi, but Asus go to great lengths to demonstrate that it is significantly faster." And though the Raspberry Pi foundation upgraded their Compute Module, Pine64 has just unveiled their new SOPINE A64 64-bit computing module, a smaller version of the $15 Pine64 computer. An anonymous reader quotes ComputerWorld: At $29, the SOPINE A64 roughly matches the price of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3, which ranges from $25 to $30. The new SOPINE will ship in February, according to the website. The SOPINE A64 can't operate as a standalone computer like the Pine64. It needs to be plugged in as a memory slot inside a computer. But if you want a full-blown computer, Pine64 also sells the $15 SOPINE Baseboard Model-A, which "complem...

    There's a surprise in the data from an investigation into Tesla safety by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. An anonymous reader quotes Bloomberg: [W]hile all Tesla vehicles come with the hardware necessary for Autopilot, you need a software upgrade that costs thousands of dollars to make it work. Since buyers can add Autopilot features after purchase, this provides a perfect before-and-after comparison. It turns out that, according to the data Tesla gave investigators, installing Autopilot prevents crashes -- by an astonishing 40 percent... Now -- thanks to an investigation that initially hurt the company -- there is finally some real data, and it's good news for Tesla... As the software matures to match the new hardware, Musk said on Thursday via a Tweet, Tesla is targeting a 90 percent reduction in car crashes. ...

    Tycho: Now that it seems like Gorobriel’s stuff is staying in, and he can laugh without terror, he’s back to his old haunts.  He loves Symmetra’s playstyle, and he loves her comic, which I love also.  The moral dimension of Overwatch is deliciously robust, even before you broach the subject of erotic Tumblr comminglings. Symmetra is not his attack choice.  Although, I just had a conversation with somebody yesterday about the effectiveness of Attack Symmetra after the rebuild, so who knows.  He has an Attack roster and a Defend roster, and he won’t mix…...

    New Comic: The Spotlight

    Tycho: Octavio Abea, who does the Welcome to PAX series, just delivered unto us this morsel: It’s next week!  And you can go! (CW)TB

    Tycho: I was trying to figure out why Gabriel would be playing Diablo III; I kept seeing his PSN account logged into it.  If you’re down with the D or whatever it’s fine.  Lots of people play Diorblo, specifically, lots of people not named Mike.  Overwatch or Titanfall 2, certainly.  I asked him about it, and he said that while his guts are still fucked up, playing “exciting” games hurts too much, and that playing Diablo - a game where you beat back unrelenting waves of hell monsters - is relaxing by comparison.  Relaxing for the heroes, at…...

    New Comic: Satyrical

    Tycho: So, did sitting up for the amount of time it took to draw the strip feel good, or bad?  Some combination?  Good enough to offset the rest of it?  I’ll ask him when we record the podcast today. Gabriel doesn’t like Let It Die, and I understand why that would be.  You have to read a ton of words, which has historically been my domain.  It has what I would describe as fully two introductions, and only after the second one are you playing “Let It Die.”  There are aesthetics that don’t parse as “art” for him, and the realities…...

But here’s the truth: with Kris Straub at my side, I’ve been unleashed.  Do you know how long I’ve been waiting to put the word verisimilitude in a Penny Arcade Strip?  However long it’s been since November 18th, 1998.  Actually, please don’t look for it, I probably managed to sneak that payload in at some…...

    With BlondeBass's recently informative guide to the Kingdom Hearts' series confusing miasma of sequels and prequels chronology. I thought it'd be appropriate for me to step up, and do something similar for the Yakuza series now that 0 is just about to release. Originally, I had planned for a blog to go more thoroughly in depth with the series and games, and I might still do that. For now, we are going through the cliff notes. but I always say that and it always turns out something more. Bass's blog compelled me to do this blog since I really want this series to reach a lot more people. Read more......

    [Usually, promotions are nice and long to engage readers with our community content. But this time, I wanted to help share this message of a bittersweet goodbye to Regular Show, one of the most endearing shows a gamer of any age could watch. Adventure Time may have gotten all the marketing and merch, but Regular Show had our love. ~ Strider] I just finished watching the final four episodes of Regular Show, which were aired in an hour-long block on Monday. While there are things I didn't like about it -- namely the rushed epilogue that condensed a wealth of character developments in a three-minute montage -- overall, I thought it was a fitting end to one of Cartoon Network's greatest original shows. ...

    As I said I would do in my gaming resolution, I’ve been spending a lot of time recently with mobile games, looking for those fun experiences I think should be shared with people who are actually looking for games to play on their phones. On my old iPhone, I had around 25 games, but spend most of my downtime trying to get a high score in Crossy Road. For a game I played only one or two minutes at a time, I probably sunk around 10 hours into it. It is fun, it's easy to play, it’s what Konami should have done with Frogger, and it’s no longer my go-to toilet time game now that I’ve discovered Westy West. Currently in Android Early Access and slated for official release later this year, Westy West follows in the footsteps of Crossy Road and similar games like&...

    And here I was, about to write up a bit of late news about how Pavonis Interactive (née Long War Studios) planned "Long War 2" mega-mod for XCOM 2 would include some new types of missions, when the damn thing just up and drops onto the Steam Workshop, free for all comers. XCOM 2 owners on PC can pick it up right now, and some are already wallowing happily in the many changes wrought by the mod. New character classes, enhanced difficulty, new tiers of weaponry, and a top-to-bottom refresh of the game's structure are in store for those who opt to take the plunge. I haven't tried the mod yet, but Pavonis' other work with the first Long War mod for XCOM: Enemy Unknown is very well-regarded, even by the folks at Firaxis itself.  Just note that at the moment Long War 2 will break a whole bunch of other mods, so...

    I think a little part of me died when I saw John Hardin, Sega's PR manager, smash the box of Yakuza 0 The Business Edition with a hammer. It was hysterical, but all I could think of was how damaged the game would be. You shouldn't damage Yakuza 0; the game is fucking incredible! That being said, this quirky little video shows you exactly what a copy of this "special edition" will come with. It is a bit underwhelming, all things considering, but I do love the business card holder. I'm also a fan of bulkier boxes; it looks like the graphic design department put a lot of effort into this. ...

Well, if youve ever played an episodic game from Telltale, you know theyre heavily focused on point and click gameplay with an emphasis on narrative. Batman is no different in this regard, which sets the stage for a much less action oriented iteration of Bats than most gamers are accustomed to. Telltale balances this out by giving us substantial time as Bruce Wayne, which provides a unique spin on the Dark Knights video game legacy. Does this deviation pay off?"...

    A lot of programmers have a really hard time trying to find a perfect niche for them to work on. Usually, they get caught up in so many questions that they can’t even see the bigger picture. “Is my niche small?” “Is my niche profitable enough?” “I feel like there is not so many people out there in my niche” So, how do you know if your programming niche is good enough? How can you know if you made the right choice?...

    Looking back on 2016 with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight, it was a watershed year in cybersecurity. But did we learn anything?

    What happens when we can't trust the numbers our service providers report to us? I personally do not stress over the analytics (such as my traffic, views, and other numbers) that we are engineering our worlds to run by, but when you are paying for a service, I definitely have an opinion. Facebook recently had a series of misreporting events around their metrics, leaving us questioning the numbers we are fed by our service providers on a regular basis. There is no way that we can be 100% sure our service providers are telling us the truth — we have to trust them. However, there are ways that API providers can be more transparent when it comes to the data behind the numbers. It is easy enough to open up the log files and other data that went into calculating the numbers when operating a platform. Many of the advertising ...

    I made a list of tuples that represents a graph such that (u,v,w) is a tuple to represent an edge between u and v and has a weight value w: graph = [('A', 'B', 2.0), ('B', 'C', 1.5), ('A', 'D', 3.0), ('D', 'E', 5.0), ('E', 'F', 2.0), ('B', 'E', 4.0)] I want to be able to change the weight of a specific edge, i.e. u and v. For instance, changing the weight the edge ('A','B')from 2.0 to 10. Thus, I tried using enumeration as the following: [i for i, v in enumerate(graph) if v[0] & v[1] == ('A','B')] This one does not work. Also, I am not sure if using enumeration is the easiest way here. Can I have some ideas how to improve this line? Thank you...

    I wanted to create an example for my understanding of Promise().then(). I've created an operation that takes time and have operations that must be completed synchronously. The code is below: // Example: long operation that takes time to execute var longOperation = function(id) { var time = 1000 * Math.random(); console.log('[' + id + '] Operation started for: ' + time + 'ms'); setTimeout(function(err) { console.log('[' + id + '] Completed operation: ' + time + 'ms'); var count = id * 10; }, 1000 * Math.random()); }; // Create new promise for longOperation var longOpPromise = function(id) { return new Promise(function(resolve, reject) { longOperation(id); resolve(null); }); }; // Create sequencing var runLongOperation = function(callback) { var count1; longOpPromise(1).then(function(count) { count1 = count; console.log('Count 1: ' + count1); longOpPromise...

    I am interested, if all conditions, separated with OR operator inside if statement, are checked, before returning true or does the checking of conditions end, when first condition satisfies? In the following example, written in C, are all conditions executed - that means removing semaphores with sem_unlink(), even if the first condition already returns -1? if(sem_unlink("/echolock") == -1 || sem_unlink("/echomsg") == -1){ exit(-1); } ...

    This question already has an answer here: Is null check needed before calling instanceof 6 answers Look at the below method: @Override public boolean equals(Object obj) { if(obj instanceof DataItem && obj != null){ ... } return super.equals(obj); } Intellij highlights the part obj != null and gives me the below warning: Java: condition obj != null is always true What makes Intellij think that?...

    I am java programmer but still finding this c++ code not working. When I run this project (Codeblock), I get the segmentation fault.

    I have 4 buttons, button 1 should trigger an animation, button 2 should reverse that animation, this works, with a small css catch, though.(I want the divs to come back into position by clicking button 2, not appearing first, then being animated, I would be happy about a solution for this as well). Now button 3 causes the divs to fly out, button 4 brings them back into place, but this process only works once. I have the following functions triggered on click function animationTwo() { var div1 = document.querySelector('.inner1'); var div2 = document.querySelector('.inner2'); var div3 = document.querySelector('.inner3'); var div4 = document.querySelector('.inner4'); removeAllClasses('div1', 'div2', 'div3', 'div4'); setTimeout(function() { addClass(div1, 'outTopLeft'); addClass(div2, 'outTopRight'); addClass(div3, 'outTopRight'); addClass(div4, 'outTopRight'); }, 100); } function reverseAnima...

    This question already has an answer here: Java Error - Illegal Modifier for Parameter - Only final Permitted 5 answers I have no clue what's going on. I don't expect any relevant answers, because I do not know the issue. I got an error in the "public static void startDaGaem() {" line. It said "Illegal modifier for parameter startDaGaem; only final is permitted".

    Is there any accepted way in C++ to differentiate between const references to immutable objects vs. mutable ones? e.g. class DataBuffer { // ... }; class Params { // ... }; class C { public: C(const Params& immutableParameters, const DataBuffer& mutableDataBuffer) : m_immutableParameters{immutableParameters}, m_mutableDataBuffer{mutableDataBuffer} {} void processBuffer(); private: const Params& m_immutableParameters; const DataBuffer& m_mutableDataBuffer; }; Here the semantic difference is given just in the names. The problem is that const& instance variables only let you know the object won't be modified by the instance. There is no distinction in the interface whether or not they may be modified elsewhere, which I think is a useful feature to be able to describe in the interface. Expressing this through the type-system would help make interfaces clearer, allow the com...

    We’ve seen a lot of retro builds around the Z80. Not many are as neatly done or as well-documented as [dekeNukem’s] FAP80 project. Before you rush to the comments to make the obvious joke, we’ll tell you that everyone has already made up their own variation of the same joke. We’ll also tell you the name is a cross between an old design from [Steve Ciarcia] called the ZAP80 and a reference to the FPGA used in this device. [dekeNukem] says his goal was to create a Z80 computer without all the baggage of using period-correct support chips. You can …read more...

    What is this, 2009? Let’s face facts though – smartphones are computing powerhouses now, but gaming on them is still generally awful. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got the horsepower to emulate any system from the last millennium when your control scheme involves awkwardly pawing away at glass when what you need is real buttons. You need a real controller, and [silver] has the answer – a 3D printed phone mount for the original Xbox Controller. It’s more useful than it initially sounds. The original Xbox used USB 1.1 for its controllers. With a simple OTG cable, the controllers can …read more...

    CES 2017 is over and there were VR gadgets and announcements aplenty, but here’s an item that’s worth an extra mention because it reflects a positive direction we can’t wait to see more of. HTC announced the Vive Tracker, to be released within the next few months. The Tracker looks a bit like a cross between a hockey puck and a crown. It is a self-contained, VR trackable device with a hardware port and built-in power supply. It can be used on its own or attached to any physical object to make that object trackable and interactive in VR. No …read more...

    Chess is a slow game of careful decision-making, looking several moves ahead of the current state of the board. So is machining, and combining the two is an excellent way to level up your machine shop chops. And so we have the current project from [John Creasey] who is machining a chess set out of stainless steel. This isn’t that new-fangled computer numerical control at work, it’s the time-tested art of manual machining. Like chess, you need to plan several steps ahead to ensure you have a way to mount the part for each progressive machining process. In this first …read more...

    Furbys have been around for a while and they are an interesting (if annoying) toy that will teach the kids to be okay with their eventual robotic overlords. In the meantime, the latest version of the robotic companion/toy/annoyance uses Bluetooth LE to communicate with the owner and [Jeija] has been listening in on the Bluetooth communication, trying to reverse engineer the protocol in order to run code on Furby. [Jeija] has made a lot of progress and can already control the Furby’s actions, antenna and backlight color, and change the Furby’s emotional state by changing the values of the Furby’s …read more...

    Until the industrial revolution, humans made use of animals to make our labor easier. This is still seen in some niche areas, like how no machine yet has been invented that’s as good at sniffing out truffles as pigs are. [William] has hearkened back to humanity’s earlier roots, but in a more modern twist has made something of a general purpose dog that could feasibly do any work imaginable. Now his dog is remote-controlled. [William] accomplished the monumental task in a literally cartoonish fashion using the old trope of hanging a hot dog in front of something’s face to get …read more...

    If you got an old PC/XT stored somewhere in basement and want to use a newer keyboard, here’s a little project you might like. [Matt] built an AT2XT keyboard adapter on a prototype board using an AT to PS/2 keyboard cable. An AT2XT keyboard adapter basically allows users to attach AT keyboards to XT class computers, since the XT port is electronically incompatible with PC/AT keyboard types. For those retro computing fans with a lot of old PCs, this trick will be great to connect the XT machines to a KVM (keyboard/Video/Mouse) switch. [Matt] found schematics for the project on …read more...
