Eh. Arrow was good for like 2 seasons. Flash has a lot of fans too, but I feel like all of them suffer from "CWitis" in their casting, plot and dialogue decisions. Sometimes I'm like "Alright, this is pretty cool!" and other times i'm like "I'm embarrassed I watch this show."

Obviously there are a lot of great investigative reporters out there who find stuff on their own, but this is very true. IG's fulfill a lot of the same societal roles as journalists in terms of holding government accountable, but they have added statutory authority and access.

Code overlap, especially code that is not compiled and is publicly released, should not be the single basis for a high confidence assessment attributing further use of that code to the originator. That said, it is a factor to consider.

I'm not that great at Twitter. Neither are a lot of other people. But we can all rest easier knowing we're not "Eddie Scarry" bad at Twitter.

Yeah, though weirdly enough it does not appear to have been widely reported as far as I can tell and NIST hasn't bothered to update their membership page to reflect the change.

FL counties split a sizable grant this year from the EAC (19 million). Palm Beach could have purchased/leased a couple of high speed scanners with what they were allocated. They chose to stick with obsolete Sequoia.

And yes, a name change would probably bring some (small) tangible benefit compared to the inscrutable National Protection and Programs Directorate. That has been a real frustration for NPPD officials, that orgs didn't know who they are and what they do when they saw the name.
