Although very honorable, I wonder how effective can these efforts be?, unless the property is easily to recognize, this looks to me like a hail mary of last resort.

I once walked past a pan-handler and he informed me that he was a retired bank robber. I dropped some money for originality at least.

Hate is a string word, but I have to say that I really ... dislike ... anyone who steals in any shape or form. I feel that I work hard for what I have, and the thought that someone can just walk in and take stuff is repugnant to me ... so I totally applaud this site... Actually, now that I come to think about it, when I was younger I used to play pool with a guy I met in the local public house ... after knowing him for many months I asked what he did for a living and he replied that he was a cat burglar ... the thing was that since I already knew him as a friend (and since he was a real nice guy, and since he always bought his round of beers) I was a bit conflicted by all this...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
