I don't know if that's bad. Another way to look at the numbers: in Florida, with a 59% conviction rate, almost half the cases brought by prosecutors are a waste of everyone's time.
One is they get people to confess --the police can detain people and hold them for up to 23 days without charge . Sometimes they make it difficult to meet with an attorney --attorneys are not allowed to be present during questioning.
Two, they tend to prosecute only the cases with "solid" evidence.
This can result in lots of "he died falling down the stairs" because investigators are unwilling to do the hard work finding the murderer(s) who beat someone with a bat, for example.
If you're being prosecuted you're essentially assumed guilty in all but the most rare cases.
With a 59% conviction rate - it means more people are being assumed innocent until proven guilty, or that the evidence is too weak to prosecute on. If that means innocent people don't get unfairly imprisoned - that's a good thing.
I'd rather see 10 guilty people walk free than one innocent unfairly imprisoned.
If you can afford bail, a 59% conviction rate means that you're less likely to be wrongfully imprisoned. But there are a lot of people who can't post bail and end up spending months or years behind bars only to be found not guilty -- or even to have all the charges against them dropped.
PHP can do anything, what about some ssh?
Last time I already tried to prove PHP can do anything when it comes to network protocols by implementing a DNS server.
This time I’m doing it again with a server-side implementation of the SSH2 protocol.
You probably know SSH at least by its name. It’s a of secure telnet replacement which also allows many other things such as port forwarding, remote file management (with sftp) and more.
With PHP I could write a fully working SSH server in only 3 days. Of course I didn’t implement every single extension there is to SSH, but I’ve implemented: [...]
The criminal justice system in Japan is a farce.

Also, you can google the title of the article in order to get past the paywall. This works for the NYT as well.
I mean, hypothetically, if the reason it went bankrupt was that all the dollars were stored in greek treasury bonds and greece defaulted, I think they would also have to close, but I don't know how you would translate that to criminal charges

This, I think, is the "it's GNU/Linux, not Linux" for a new generation of pedants.
Except that mtgox died an ignominious death rendering the question largely irrelevant, whereas Linux became the most popular OS kernel in the world in a different configuration from GNU/Linux, making the distinction somewhat important.
These days, they just awkwardly shuffle their feet and don't say anything, because it turns out we were totally right about the wisdom of trusting your money to the Magic: The Gathering Online Exchange.
