Re: “advance the bold vision”
And if you don't need all the pretty trimmings and want to give the apps all the juice they can get, try the xfce edition: http://linuxmint.com/rel_maya_xfce.php
Couldn't have happened to a nicer company
well, maybe Datev...
Let them burn
I say, they've always been a haven for squatters and adware.
you could just use JonDoFox running on a Linux LiveCD.
And seriously, Symantec?
Now all he needs to do is apply the same analysis to the 'plots' of those movies, to produce the perfectly average porn flick. Oh wait...

Re: Stupidity is a luxury
I make sure to use a very dumb phone for this, and for a BT attack one would need if not access at least proximity.
Stupidity is a luxury
and luxury must be paid for.
My bank (HVB) sends TANS by SMS with the transaction details, which then have to be entered into the webform. I'd like to see someone circumvent that :D
Re: When wil you freeturd supporters understand!
Let me guess: author of crappy software noone is willing to pay for, and you found a torrent with your stuff somewhere on the internet once with all of ten seeds.
I'm so sick
of copyright infringement being called 'internet/online piracy'.
Depriving 'IP rights holders' of alleged potential profit is NOT the same as murdering people and taking their valuables on the high seas.
This phrase both demonizes otherwise harmless people in the public consciousness, and erodes the shock value of real piracy.

1. Office spec PC without Windows :300€
Same box with Windows7 Home Premium: 380€
Time to slap a Linux onto said PC and set it up: about 1h, or an average of 20min if done in bulk, counted at 30€/h: 10-30€
(*) That's like saying that without McD we'd have all starved
2. If you're deploying in an organization you'll settle on one distro/dm and stick with it. And if your IT guy is not braindead he'll pick one that's easy to maintain/patch/support (I'm partial to Mint myself, but that's a matter of taste)
Opt for the patdown
when enough people start doing it and the line grows out of control, the outrage will draw enough publicity to change policy.

It's the internal SOP guidelines of the CC companies (search for '3D Secure liability shift').
If you get phished, you're likely stuck with the charges, unless you can afford to appeal to Visa's own Court in London (they charge for lodging a complaint, and go from there).
That's actually a good point: who's footing the bill?
Tokamaks are run by universities and research labs, they are fascinating physics experiments one can endlessly fiddle with, and assure the funding of their department for decades.
Polywell is funded by the US Navy, interested in a compact, failsafe power source.
is a new 'feature' on many cards: basically a few marginally effective security measures, but if a card is enrolled in the program (many banks enroll new cards by default, and some sites force customers to enroll in order to buy), the bank can brush off responsibility for any fraudulent transactions onto the customer.
The plasma in a fusion reactor is at militorr range pressures, a breach would result in a slight WHOOSH sound of air being SUCKED INTO the reaction chamber, followed immediately by the reaction grinding to a halt as the fusion materials nuclei get scattered off air molecules.
You can block at tag level.

it’s a project by Blake Bevin to produce and market practical PowerLaces (aimed at people with Parkinson’s and other disabilities, but BTTF fans are not excluded:)
Direct Democracy FTW
the Swiss are doing it the sanest way I know of
one time (and never again) I let myself be persuaded to give root to a developer on a solaris 8. next thing you know, really weird fails: you can ssh in but a lot of the system commands throw errors or just fail outright, not all though. some digging revealed that everything under /usr/lib was gone. Solaris 8 system utils were mostly dynamically linked (which is a design fail in itself - try to fschk /usr after a power fail and you'll see why).
Microsoft would do the same thing for IE (but a giant blinky on Google for users of old versions I mean).
buried on page 12 of the site's T&C, in 6p print.
for all your mTAN needs, use a mobile just smart enough to receive SMS and no smarter.
Or use NoScript so you don't get XSpwned. Oh and don't give your mobile number to crooks?

Linux Mint Debian Edition
my rolling desktop distro since Sept.
How many of you read it and thought "Geocities 2.0"?
I'm showing my age ...
When you said old PC..
I thought you mean the 5-10 years old PCs and laptops I see every day (I offer PC service as a side business). They get upgraded to the max RAM their little motherboards can carry and reinstalled with Linux Mint (or Puppy, for the _really_ old ones).
It's like being forced to pay alimony on the grounds of having a reproductive apparatus. And then getting castrated if you're caught actually using it.
