@mag: Indeed. At least the dogs in this modern-day scenario are limited into their abilities in chasing the mail deliverers (i.e., the drones)! They can't fly, after all.

@magneticnorth: It's an issue here, too, and not just with the postal service.
A supposedly true story I heard at a conference yesterday involved an Amazon drone delivering a package of cupcakes to someone in their backyard -- but when the person got home, they had discovered that their dog had gotten into it and eaten the cupcakes!

@Terry: And, indeed, certain languages are prone, with less skilled coders, to certain errors and security flaws (the C languages proneness to buffer overflows and memory leakage comes to mind).
To this end, business models for source-code checking/QC are very in right now.

@SaneIT that makes me very happy that my country's postal service sucks so much that people don't even use it anymore. We're not worried about our data getting stolen—we're worried that our packages are getting stolen.

tinym, I would go to sleep and pray that if something bad happens, I didn't wake up. How dangerous could that be on a flight? I'd imagine the flight crew would snap into action and spray the sucker with an extinguisher before serious harm befell the plane.
