Quite a bunch of awfully worded questions that suggest the answer ("chasing progress at all costs is dangerous" - duh!).
it means "ass" as in "arse", not the animal and is kinda clever, because devs usually type "dupa" when they want to test something it warrants creating a bunch of scripts that strip all code of all "dupas" before going into production
@RaceProUK Of course. I fully understand.
Now, here's an interesting question. Why would @Vault_Dweller want that government?
To put a liberal pair into power and frame them for a fascist policy that statistically was probably coming anyway?
Because he just straight misread the Zeitgeist?
To put a fascist into power? Why bother? That fascist would almost assuredly be @wharrgarbl, though - it's way too early for you to toss a fellow fascist under the bus like this.
For what it's worth.. I've seen zero hotels in the modern era where wifi both actually worked and only had limited signal in the body of the room.
The limitation isn't signal strength. It usually isn't even fucking bandwidth or node saturation. It's IP addresses.
300 room hotels. Block of 256 IP addresses. Multiday IP leases (nevermind the auth times out after 24 hours at most).
I'd never write my own file format decoder for any reason other than a hobby project. Too many edge cases.
You seem to fundamentally not understand the problem I'm having. The target computer is isolated. It doesn't have a decoder already. Therefore I have to write one. Or it won't have one. And it needs to have one.
Reinventing the wheel is unfortunately not uncommon in my job due to security constraints. It sucks, but it is what it is.
If it's isolated and doesn't have a tar binary, how in the fuck is it getting a tar file?
