Me too. last week when a bunch of my friends and I were going to see The Hobbit and I showed up late with the tickets and we missed the trailer for Star Trek and also some of The Hobbit? It turns out Chinese hackers got into my GPS and sent me to a strip club for three hours, which is why I was late. Darn those Chinese hackers!

It IS a pretty convenient excuse. "My twitter was hacked, I didn't say that shiat!"

So, why do the Chinese have the ability to outhack everyone else? Why can't we just hack them better?

It's good to see Lore Sjoberg around again, but that article was no bueno.

Ahh - Brunching Shuttlecocks - those were the days...

Because every time they catch a hacker, they say "Hack who we say when we say or eat this bullet".

Multiply that times a billion people (and the Great Firewall meaning that the average skill is probably higher), and you can get a moderate army of semi-skilled hackers hitting everyone and everything we have.    And since security is HARD, the odds that something somewhere is open are high.

/It's the whole "Don't do anything original.  Just steal and copy (poorly)" thing they've got going on as applied to computers.

Stupid Subby...you totally blew the headline.  It should have read "Chinese Hackers Are Responsible for Everything Wong With My Life"

big fark fail having "wrong" in the headline instead of "wong"

I guess this is another sign of the new improved nanny state fark

I think Clancy writes the  "Trash pushed the Hornets throttles past the detent unleashing 55 thousand pounds of thrust and pulled back on the stick to gain altitude" The Hornets twin Gecklefarb engines allow it to climb over 30k feet per second. Trash also switched his ANQ-65-1-Q-3 bloc 2 radar from sweep to scan, the seeker heads on the PZ-75-1 medium range air dominance missles communicating with the now active ANQ-65-1-Q-3 Bloc 2 radar". type stuff, while Greaney and all his other co authors come up with the plot, dialogue and characterization.

I actually enjoyed it, probably one of their best efforts in a long time.

Why have we not "liberated" the squinty bastards back to the stone age yet?

It's good practice for the military and we can have our manufacturing industry back.

they trade in volume, not quality.

static.guim.co.uk

there are thousands and thousands of rooms like this one in china, and they are staffed 24/7. I've been in some 'studios' like this over there. They dont even need an office, they will just all rent out a room in some residential building, so long as they can get a broadband connection.

That article was farking stupid. Trying to come up with something witty about how stupid it was, but it left my brain numb so I can't.

No, excessive capitalization is.
