Hand held shotgun?
You lack imagination
Comparatively little. Open relays were a problem in the 90s, but now the main issue is hordes of zombie PCs. Looking at the article attachment and own my mail and ssh logs confirms this: spam and probes come from home user PCs. It's fairly easy to confirm with whois lookups and hostnames which contain clues like "dialup", "ras", "dynamic" and such.
This is also relevant to using iptables: it is helpful for ssh probes but not so much spam.
Another technical fix for a social issue
Would the idiotard journalist read a paper porn mag in the church cafe or the childrens' section of a bookshop? Or a laptop or mobile device using mobile Internet?

The lure of the cloud
MS figures the desktop is dead and you just need a Hardware Secured ™ Microsoft Approved ™ thin client to access the Microsoft Cloud™.
"Espaw" and you're really close.
MS is not buying all of Nokia, just devices and services (phones and Ovi to you and I).
Nokia will use that cash and extra MS cash to help pay off loans it took to buy Siemens out of NSN.
stop trading as an independent company?
Really? It sold a division to MS.
Re: I like it !
Plumpy was also selling stuff on Ebay that matched purchases made on his credit card.
Just a couple days ago I realized I haven't used my media server for film or tv for ages, and decided to delete all of it. My TV appetite is more than sated by Netflix, which costs me some pocket change per month. Only thing missing is sports.
Re: Of course it couldnt stop it....
Do you mean extraction operations that line the pockets of local elites? Or "aid" of which 90% goes back to domestic contractors, kills competing local businesses and creates dependence on foreign aid?
Or do you mean investment in businesses that actually help foster the local economies? Yeah, I'm really interested in hearing about *those* trillions.
Re: never "forget" any edge system!
RHEL (and CentOS) are meant to be used in enterprise environments where things don't change quickly. This means Red Hat maintains an "old" version of a software component way after others have upgraded, religiously backporting patches to make sure it's secure. In other words stuff like BIND and openssh will have ancient version numbers, but still be up to date.
If you want cutting edge, either compile the software yourself or use another distro. I like CentOS myself.
Re: @ Toothpick
AMFM operates on a knee'd to now bases. That belong to US. If you don't see it you aren't looking closely enough, or too close.

Re: Sorry, but.....
Andus McCoatover lost Carrie Fisher's beauty! Now we know who to blame, you dizzy git.
P.S. The extra clue is in the article title and the big blue "Servers" section header at the top of the page.
Computer != PC. The article mentions servers, and the small setup in the video is just a demo. Hint: connecting to a pipe system allows you to store and transport the heat further than your server room (or bedroom in your case). Large scale examples of using heat from servers exist..
Re: One question I have always asked myself
If you're concerned about wind turbines having an effect on wind:
- Be concerned about the impact of cutting trees and deforestation
- Be concerned about the impact of urban buildup and tall buildings
- Think about the natural variation in wind resistance from hills, mountains, lakes and oceans
Re: Is this about UEFI or SecureBoot?
'Many have failed to understand that in a corporate world very little is open source, and corporate guarantees are more important than "openness and fluffy ideals".'
Openness is not fluffy ideals. It's savings in money. What you call corporate guarantees is also known as vendor lockin, which is costs big money to companies. The IT business world is all about vendors trying to lock you in and smart customers fighting it.
'I challenge you Linux obsessed to find a corporation that runs on key software that isn't in some way either bought from a big corporation or written almost entirely internally.'
And why do some opt to develop their key software internally? To avoid vendor lockin, but it's expensive. The third alternative is to demand open standards from your vendors. You know, those "fluffy ideals" you write about. Secondly, it's not either big corporate or open source. Big corporations use, contirbute to, sell and promote open source. If you haven't seen or read about it you're totally of the picture.
Sadly so many commenters here think IT = Desktop and by extension Linux = Desktop. Everything from your Android phone to your wireless router and Sony TV are running on Linux. *That* is the context you should think about when considering the stupidity of tying down the Linux kernel with specifics of one platform like secure booting a PC.
US has data protection
But only for US citizens. IIRC there was that bit where private companies handling foreigners' data on behalf of the US gov't were selling it on.
Re: foo_bar_baz tolerable
By schitzophrenic I referred to the state, not you. The courts and the agency grating the permits represent the same body.
Re: My head explodes!
I've yet to see a single rabid Linux fanboi zealot in this thread. I do see plenty of uninformed commenters like yourself throwing around terms like "fanboi" and "freetard", who choose to not even read the article before picking up on Linux + Brick = flame time.
Re: Old News
Good point, in fact Reported by tadazmas on 2012-08-23
"Bricked" means there is no boot screen. The clue is in the article: "dreaded black screen of no activity whatsoever."
By definition? There's nothing special about a Live CD Linux kernel.
Re: @AC 13:24 Bad Firmware!
"Expect all you want - but the machine works perfectly as designed and with the OS provided. The fact that some people want to run unknown code is not Samsung's problem."
The Apple generation speaks.
I remember a time when a PC meant "PC compatible", which meant OS and hardware were decoupled and a standard BIOS interface allowed you to mix and match. Oh wait, that's what UEFI is supposed to do today on that very same fucking Samsung machine.
Re: What idiots use RHEL, any version?
You cannot find Slackware under officially supported OS's for Oracle, EMC or any other "enterprise" software or hardware vendor, while RHEL is always listed. Good luck with that support call to any of those 3rd parties with your in house Linux setup.
In short, big enterprises buy RHEL.
I'm surprised by your take on the BAe case. It's pretty schizofrenic to accept their reasoning while a govenment agency has granted export permits for the plane.
You *really* need to include a citation when making outrageous accusations like that, or is it self evident to you that Pakistani teens cannot be behind the defacements? Really tells something about you.
The police were doing what the law requires them to. The law says attempted infringement is also punishable. See Lex Karpela (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lex_Karpela) - thanks to the EU directive, in turn probably lobbied into effect by Hollywood and the global music industry.
If someone is to blame, it's the industry associations in Finland, Europe and worldwide.
Cameras and RFID tags, technical solutions to a social problem. Doomed to fail.
Re: Potential lawsuit?
All of that also applies to the built in Photobooth app, you bollard. Any 4 year old is capable of using it, and has no rating.
- take pictures of self
- upload, hosted on a server (could even be an Apple hosted mac.com account)
- distribute to recipient (build in email app)
Network communication isn't exactly suspicious for an application that sends and receives images and text over the network.
Re: Big Fail Down Under
I just tried it and it worked just fine. The route was produced instantly. 8.47 hours, 861km by car
Perhaps you had the "by foot" icon selected.
@Esskay: Plausible explanations
- Maps product usage != smartphone usage
- Maps product usage != phone usage
You do realize Nokia owns Navteq, who produce things like map data for? If Failop includes all their services, it's obvious "map products" are doing well. Perhaps he even includes services like maps.nokia.com.
You do realize map applications are installed on the cheap Nokia Asha phones that sell quite well? That is turn-by-turn routing with offline maps, for free. Map applications are some of the things that Nokia actually does well, but in your "Nokia sucks at everything" world that is clearly not possible.
