If you study graphs in which edges can link more than two nodes, you're more properly called a hyperedgelord.

It's so interesting to see this change in norms.

To compare, I graduated from high school in 1984. The local Baptist church got the school board to reject school sponsorship for the SF&F club, because we sometimes played D&D. For various reasons, faculty apathy, student attention spans, and probably the pre-existing association with the game, we were unsuccessful in getting sponsorship reinstated before I graduated.

TL;DR: In the past, community norms made D&D unwelcome in public schools.

Malicious Faxes Leave Firms 'Open' To Cyber-Attack

1 Comment and 2 Shares
Booby-trapped image data sent by fax can let malicious hackers sneak into corporate networks, security researchers have found. From a report: Since many companies use fax machines that are also printers and photocopiers, they often have a connection to the internal network. The malicious images exploit protocols established in the 1980s that define the format of fax messages. The research was presented at the Def Con hacker conference in Las Vegas. The two researchers said millions of companies could be at risk because they currently did little to secure fax lines. "Fax has no security measures built in -- absolutely nothing," security researcher Yaniv Balmas, from Check Point software, told the BBC. Mr Balmas uncovered the security holes in the fax protocols with the help of colleague Eyal Itkin and said they were "surprised" by the extent to which fax was still used.

aprillikesthings: The USPS is the fastest, cheapest, and most...

aprillikesthings:

The USPS is the fastest, cheapest, and most accurate mail service on the planet last I heard, and is the biggest employer of veterans in the entire country. 

On top of that, mail carriers: 
-have wages that top out at over $30 an hour (and their wages go up in predictable steps based on how long they’ve been with the USPS)
-have excellent benefits, including a shit-ton of vacation time, plus a pension, and they can retire after thirty years

But they also have one of the oldest, biggest, strongest unions in the country. That must piss off Republicans so much

Also, side note: they take zero taxpayer dollars. They’re entirely funded by postage. 

(”But I heard they were doing terribly!” They’re not. Congress saddled them with pre-funding their retirement 75 years out to intentionally put them in the red and make them look bad. I’m not joking or exaggerating. There’s tons of info, but here’s the USPS’s own info: https://about.usps.com/who-we-are/financials/annual-reports/fy2010/ar2010_4_002.htm )

This happened walking distance from my house: http://www.wbrz.com/news/usps-investigating-mail-found-in-storm-drain/ -- Also, we've had issues with the mail delivery coming well after dark, if at all. When we called to complain, they didn't really seem to care.
