  Adversary system   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
The adversarial system (or adversary system) of law is the system of law, generally adopted in common law countries, that relies on the skill of the different advocate s representing their party's positions and not on some neutral party, usually the judge, trying to ascertain the truth of the case.
The rules of evidence are also developed based upon the system of objections of adversaries and on what basis it may tend to prejudice the trier of fact which may be the judge or the jury.
In an adversary system, there is no more controversy and the case proceed to sentencing; though in many jurisdictions the defendant must have allocution of her or his crime, a false confession will not be accepted even in common law courts.

 Adversary
The Adversary is an ancient mystical entity, possibly demonic in nature, who seeks to destroy the present universe and to create a new one in its stead.
It is also unclear whether or not the Adversary is older than the present universe, and hence whether or not he had a role in the destruction of the previous universe and the creation of the current one.
The exception is that the Adversary is known to be vulnerable to harm by cold iron, and hence to both steel and Adamantium.

 Preempting the adversary in an operation - combat Military Thought - Find Articles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
For convenience the whole thing may be represented as a succession of four phases: preempting the adversary and achieving surprise [right arrow] seizing the initiative and imposing your will on the adversary [right arrow] materializing a provisional and moral advantage [right arrow] realizing the advantage and gaining final success.
The secret of the initial success is in the purposeful activity of combat operations, whose level should be substantially higher than the adversary's and, most importantly, grow faster than the level of his activity.
It follows from the foregoing that military art displayed in an operation (combat) is based not so much on the separate factors (surprise, preemption, initiative) in the "success formula" as on their interaction in space and time.

 The Adversary, by Emmanuel Carrère, Reading Group Guide, Henry Holt and Company Publishers of Quality Books
The Adversary is an utterly shocking yet true account of a life spent telling lies -- and of the heinous crimes and mass murders that followed these lies.
Given Carrère's objective prose, intellectual rigor, and expert pacing and plotting, The Adversary, which is another name for Satan, is as hypnotic as it is horrific.
Finally, compare The Adversary to other outstanding true crime works you have encountered in the past, such as the books In Cold Blood or Helter Skelter, the film Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, and so on.

 A general attack to map out peer-to-peer networks
This is because even if an adversary had a list of most nodes in the network, there would be nothing the adversary could easily do to make a shared file inaccessible -- they would still have to launch a denial-of-service attack or a legal attack on each of the individual nodes.
I think the flaw in this logic is that a single adversary can repeat the process of "joining" the network over and over (either with a single machine repeatedly joining and disconnecting from the network, or with multiple machines that join the network without requiring any human intervention).
This would limit the adversary's ability to extract the list of neighbors quickly -- but once again, they could be carrying out the process on multiple nodes, and doing the waiting in parallel.

In the New Testament, "adversary" is used to translate the Greek word (pronounced) anti-dee-kos, which means an opponent, including in reference to Satan, who made himself the primary opponent of God (see the Fact Finder question below), and in doing so also made himself the greatest fool, and the greatest loser, of all time.
Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion [see also When The Cat Will Become The Mouse], seeking some one to devour.

Tempt your adversary with an "invitation" by moving your weapon slightly up, down, or to one side to deliberately expose a part of your target.
Use a "straight thrust" to hit the adversary with the point when the adversary invites, leaving his target exposed, or when you have engaged the adversary's blade, exposing his target.
Learn the three ranges of fencing "measure," or fencing distance: "close," where the adversary can be reached with a thrust or cut from the guard position; "correct" where the adversary can be reached only with a lunge, and "out of distance," where a thrust or cut can only reach the adversary with an advance lunge.
