Rab Sssss

that gahtering electronic intel is their job working on breaking encryption is something they should be doing.

This however in no way excuses abusing access, two differnt things.

Terror cops swoop on couple who Googled 'backpacks' and 'pressure cooker'

Rab Sssss
Unhappy

The main problem being here is if 1 turns out to be something and they don't check.

Hell even 99.9% turn out to be bugger all that 0.1% is still kinda important. They have check shit out.

Its not like the dude had been dragged to a dark room and hit by rubber hoses. Security theather annoys teh crap out of me (3 suvs and what 6 or 8 guys? comeon thats gotta be taking the piss), but they do have to check when a mbr of the public drops a tip.

Re: Women + IT

Why do I feel like punching someone who pulls "you an't expect me to know computers/how to this I'm a woman/girl/old/whatever the fuck" crap?

Just say your shit at it/have no intrest in it.

Are gender roles purely a social construct? Probably not. Is it at all possable that there maybe a gender based bias for/against certain intrests? or it is just a holdover from needing to protect breeding age females from a hostile enviroment.

BSkyB-owned BE slams into traffic pile-up over 'unlimited' broadband lie

Rab Sssss

it was probably only in selected exchanges

As the AUP basicly broke down to "don't break it for others" or the complainers were on the limited package they did.

And yes annex M is kinda hit or miss if your not a fairly short line. It will always take from your download, but will not always be able to apply to your upload.

Bradley Manning to speak in public for first time in two years

Rab Sssss

The 2 years it spent in secure lockup (untouched), he did not pack it in the first place, not even touching on the medical issues.

Not touching on the ammo charge only the pistol one. the main differnces between him and manning is one took resposiblity for the charges one tried to deny it all.

Also you will note I am not calling for the charges to be dissmissed against him, as per my first post in this thread, military regs are stricter and it was court martial. I don't thnk there are any pararells between him and manning apart from they both had/are going through court martials

Thumb Down

Completly different TBH, having read the pdf of the court martial procedings for Sgt Nightingale who did plead guilty (with some pretty good extenuating circumstances it has to be said).

About the only thing both case would have in common is they are both court martials.

No pretty much stright option 1, trust was given and he abused it. To make it worse he volinteered to be part of the US Armed Forces, He took an oath. He broke that oath

Now through his own actions he is right in the shite.

Re: Is This The Daily Mail?

Basicly what sccorchio said, its not a civil trial. Solitery confiment probably savved him a lot oof abuse at the hands of other inmates TBH.

He would prrobably have been as popular as a child abuser in a civvie nick.

Publishers, Apple bend over for EU eBooks probe

Rab Sssss

Noothiingg in that article you list supports your point BTW, Most of the costs are apprently nothing to do with the phyisical book (source http://www.baen.com/library/prime_palaver.asp) I been reading ebooks longg before I ggot my kindle via baens online ebook store. the author gets his cut from what amazon pays the publisher. Not what I may or others pay amazon.

Hell buying my fav authors ebooks when its only out in hardback at hardback prices is something I am ok with, paying hardback prices for books that are not out in harback is step to far. I have also found a ccouple of authors via amazons self publish route. there is nothing stopping publishers selling ebooks directly in a number of formats (indeed baen have been doing this for about 10 years now, including kindle formated books, theres 6 formats that they will supply not including online HTML versions).

Bradley Manning's lawyers seek to show 'cruel treatment'

Rab Sssss
Mushroom

He did...

Break the law, he did break his oaths. Militiary law is stricter than civil law. Not to mention that solitery confinement while it might not have done a lot for his mental stablity would probably have protected him from the other inmates (I reckon in a military prision he would been slighty less popular than a pedo in a normal prision). As others have pointed out anything that had happened to him at his own hands or the hands of other inmates it would always been spun as sanctioned (no matter how well the guards kept an eye out chances are the other inmates would have made their displeaure felt).

I could respect someone standing by their principles while obbouring their actions bud he would need to be fucking retared to think he was going to get a slap on the wrist for what he is alledged to have done.

Re: checklist

actually according to a write up on baen the phyisical part takes less then the other work (proof reading, etc...).

Pardon me if I take the word of author working for a publisher that quite happy punts DRM free ebooks and also give some books away for free with the authors agreement over some numbnuts posting anonymously on a comments thread.

The write ups on teh baen free libary are pretty intresting TBH.

ISPs get flimsy self-help leaflet on net speed ads

So how in the hell can a generic advertisement take into effect that ADSL speed is based on line length/quality?

Trust me I have had this conversation with dipshits THAT WILL NOT LISTEN.

convo goes like this

inablity to listen"so that will be x speed?"

me "no the estimate is y"

inablity to listen" so x speed"

me "no the estimate is y"

Rab Sssss

Average speed estimates are utter crap TBFH they can be +/- 2 meg over or under (sometimes worse). and what can srew it even more is some of utterly fail ways they have hooked the DSL device up to the line.

How about giving virgin a kicking for their fire optic lies...

I can bullshit as well

Can remeber one night on exersize where i watched a bush stand up and run up and down a hill for 10 mins or so.

Lack of sleep and stress was the cause (granted a prev training group failed to report a 6 foot pink rabbit apprently, the guy wearing the suit was a bit narked at the waste of the rental cost).
