He said that instead the legislation should require that terrorists must be shown to "intimidate or coerce or to compel".
Spammers and telephone solicitors still qualify then.
What could go wrong?
"The email is triggered by a third party to whom you bequeath a code to activate Endings . . ."
Let's hope this third party is able to keep the code from any pranksters.
I'll give you my router

I've got a better one.
Given how the company "makes its coin " one might have difficulty trusting them. Where does their allegiance lie? The government, developers, the people, or none of the above? I think we all know the answer.
ICANN should explain themselves
"The suspension notice accuses Brandon Gray of “false or deceptive” marketing"
Why has ICANN been so reluctant with this obvious accusation? One might come to the conclusion that they didn't think it was such a bad thing. I think the delay requires a formal explanation and perhaps even a public apology. I would like to see an inquiry into this.
Re: Tired admin
Not sure why the thumbs down,
Wasn't me, but I notice some strange thumbs-downs around here. I've even seen thumbs-down on a question. WTF? It's as if some commentards view everything as a religious belief or something like that. To me, a comment can sometimes be good even if I don't agree with it.
Re: Tired admin
I'm curious about what you mean by "not much worth stealing". Surely anybody with a "serious presence on the Internet" has bandwidth. That's worth stealing.
Re: Actually, this may not be a bad idea...
"Sure, but why typewriter?"
Because it is useful in getting rid of the Secret Service.
"Opposition committee member Martina Renner said on Twitter she'd sooner get rid of the Secret Service than start using typewriters,"
Let's hope it works.
Re: What are the odds...
There's a real advantage to people who are dyslexic. Simply flip the display over and everything becomes readable again. No?
Just listen to the low bandwidth morse code broadcast.
Re: Good. I guess.
I mostly use my real name, but I'm the one who decides when and where. Google can just + right off.
Kudos for OpenWRT, but
Surely IPv6 support is not a new thing. I've had that capability on my cheap Netgear router for a long time. That's with Tomato.
Re: There is no POTS anymore
"The days of big relays and mechanical switching of calls are practically gone in most areas." POTS hasn't used that stuff for some decades. I've got POTS in my area, and it's been digital switching and multiplexing for a very long time. That said, you're right, most things travel over the net these days and there's not really any differentiation of things like TV and telephone.
So, when the article says:
"The FCC was given a mandate to increase broadband adoption, but that's about it.", that sounds fine, but what they really should be doing is encouraging (much) more infrastructure to handle the anticipated traffic.
Å uses to be written as AA despite being considered one letter even then, so there could be two Ås and no A. Depends on whether you're Danish or not. Here in Canada we don't count things like that eh.
If your dog is under 5 pounds, you may also want to put weights on it.
These obviously won't replace transport trucks, so when they say reduce truck traffic they're talking about the last bit or "local loop". So, exactly what kind of distance can they transport 5 lbs. and still have enough oomph to get back? Also, say a local delivery truck gets stuffed with one ton, that could represent 400 drone flights. Is that a good trade off? I think these drones are cool, but there could be a lot of buzzing about.
Whether we like it or not, parking meters is not a "racket". It is the job of voted in councils to manage such public space. Democracy isn't perfect, but at least delegating power through voting is a good start. A private entity does not have that same authority.
I'm not fond of parking meters either, and certainly don't agree with much of what city councils are doing in different cities. However, I do prefer some version of democratic control as opposed to a private company trying to scam folks. Perhaps I'm wrong in my assessment of MonkeyParking and other posters can come up with a good justification of their actions. We'll see.
I hope the city wins this one. MonkeyParking is obviously a parasite.
Lower specs but
This looks almost identical to a Zenbook which sells for twice the price. I guess that's the current *book look.
A mild reaction
Based on what other countries do in circumstances like this, the CIA station chief could have been jailed and charged (or worse). In fact one might imagine something like that happening if it had been a foreign agent on US soil.
Re: Ministry of Truth demand more LIES....
I think you're getting things mixed up there. I didn't give you a downvote because I agree with "fake history, filtered news and financed with a fiat currency." However, there's a lot of sincere scientists out there.
I do think that Samsung has at least some responsibility as a corporate citizen. That said, in this case it really does look like CLW is missing the mark and it would be more effective to focus on those who have direct influence on the labour laws.
I think the noise will be missed at first, but the higher acceleration will make up for it in appeal.
Re: What's to look forward to?
You obviously have experience with MS-Windows. I don't. However, I hear lots of people griping that they loved XP and don't wish to change. I also notice that the price of Win7 went way up recently, as did Office2010. I figured that was an indication of what was going on.
What's to look forward to?
It seems to me that everything people liked about Microsoft is in their past.
Re: Out of curiosity ...
It's not the nation, nor the dictator, it's the hacking. Lots of it. Who knows, maybe they'll be good at it and be so successful that it will finally inspire people to secure their computers. Perhaps OS vendors will even improve their products in response.
Noting the proliferation of new payment systems these days, I bet it wouldn't take them long to come up with one. They're big enough.
Re: Never launch
I'm not sure, but it would make sense that this is just an announcement to match the recent Russian announcement that they're going to restart their space program. It's just a war of announcements.
Re: It's all a plot
And every bomb will have to have a cell phone glued to it so you can get it through security. Even more sales there.
I'm not surprised
Those businesses that Bitcoin is designed to circumvent don't see this as a good thing.

One does wonder why he's hiding. I'm guessing he's a cat video hoarder, though he could also be a cat.
Re: Getting desperate?
Shoot first, ask questions later. It works.
I'm curious if GS plans to learn from this and change procedures for sending e-mail which is this sensitive.
There's a lot of statists who accept what the government says. I suspect that the majority doesn't though. However, from the government's point of view is doesn't matter what people actually believe. They don't care about that and are only concerned with what they can get away with.
Re: Mmmh, its definitely a cock-up when it becomes world-wide news ....
"I check whether the specific PP site stores my credit card"
Why would you be giving somebody your credit card if you're paying with Paypal? Sounds like you're doing something wrong. The two shouldn't be connected if you're concerned about privacy.
The NSA is a zero-day vulnerability.
Paypal is indeed convenient. I'm not clear on what actual financial problems a consumer can encounter with it though. I haven's seen any yet. For someone using it to take payment, obviously the US centric policies such as this story references, are not acceptable.
For online payment I also use a Bank of Montreal Travel card. I add money like a bill payment (without attachment to any other account), but it appears in 1-2 days, as opposed to 9-10 days for Paypal. Ability of anybody besides me to withdraw money is obviously a no no. A merchant account with them is likely as problematic as any of the others.
Re: Paypal has issues, but I like them
I also use Paypal, as well as a Mastercard which is not attached to a bank account and which does not allow automatic withdrawal. The Mastercard may actually be the better service when I think about it. However, astroturfing or not, perhaps this thread is not the place for me to write a half page dissertation on why I like one or the other.

Re: people are riding mountain bikes
Yes I'm aware that a lot of city folks ride hybrids but the world is a lot bigger than that and different parts of the world are not the same. There are more trails than roads in the greater area where I live. In fact there isn't a lot of paved travel to be had. The Trans Canada Trail is across the street from me and all I see are mountain bikes (and quads of course). It's the bicycle of choice in BC and that has a lot to do with the kinds of roads we have and the kind of terrain that is available.
Re: This is not what cyclists need
I'm with you about paved roads, but I think we're showing our age. Gone are the days of 3/4" tyres pumped to 115lbs. These days people are riding mountain bikes with (what we would call) balloon rubber.
I'll take what's behind door number 3
I must say that after watching the video, I'm less impressed than I was before I saw it. Isn't that supposed to be the other way around?
Uncompressed G.711 VoIP needs 80 kbps. I just made a test call to confirm that. I'm on very low speed rural wireless and my VoIP calls are high quality and reliable. You've got something misconfigured or there's a flooded link somewhere.
Re: USA had Desert Storm..
Well, you get an upvote for "Operation ShitStorm".

Re: aren't they doing this already?
Of course they are. We pay for a certain amount of data and are charged more if we go over. Comcast is just trying to screw their customers.
"And if Netflix doesn't bear its share of those costs to connect to the network then we have no choice but to raise prices for everyone else," Cohen said. "And ... why should two-thirds of the people who never use Netflix pay for the cost for Netflix to attach to our network? It doesn't make any sense."
This guy is either exceedingly stupid, or thinks that everyone else is. Possibly both.
Are these guys for real?
This is a rather unprofessional letter to be on House of Representatives letterhead. It looks more like something that belongs in a political campaign.
