The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Bridging the "Air-Gap"

It seems there is a virus abroad out at Creech AFB, in Nevada.  The "Danger Room" at Wired Magazine has a report on a virus that has infected the computers that control PREDATOR and REAPER drones.  The virus has been around for two weeks and while computer security experts wipe it off the hard drives, it keeps coming back.

As a bonus, check the picture.  Is the man with his back to us looks like he is from some Commonwealth Air Force.  Most likely British or Canadian, but that is just a guess.  Could be an Aussie.  Looking closer, the person in the left seat looks like a Commonwealth Flight Lieutenant (US Captain equivalent).  I am judging the female in the right of the photo is US.

The author is the reliable Mr Noah Shachtman.

So "not surprising" that it is almost not even news. The one bloke is RAF I'd bet...the female is very likely an enlisted AF intel type. The patch is familiar...but having trouble placing it.
