Doesn't help you if somebody brings in an infected device from home.
On Windows, group policies are just registry keys at specific locations.
If a user has admin rights on his computer, he can of course write the keys manually.
Ahh, the hypocrisy. The US chooses "not to live by the standards of the law" by illegally snooping on its citizens without warrant and with just a secret court's rubber stamp, but other countries better do...
Do as the US says, not as the US does.
Turning the US into a police state will be the lasting legacy of the Obama administration, unless they stop this illegal snooping now.
And CEO Andrew Mason got fired over the bad numbers.
Groupon's dead (actually it was already dead, regardless of the firing of Mason.)
Re: Not hard at all.
"Actually, in the US, single programmers can not register as a company. For software companies, legally, they have to have at least 3 employees."
I am pretty sure that this is bull.
DO you have a source? From IRS?
I personally know several people who created their one-person software consulting business.
The idiot who flew his plane into the IRS building in Houston had other issues with IRS, like a tax audit...
Re: I'm shocked that Microsoft isn't fighting for the use of the "Metro" trademark
Lots of people, you included, get confused with the "Metro AG is a cash&carry shop" thing.
They aren't. They started as a cash&carry shop, but nowadays they are the fifth-biggest retailer in the world, and own, besides cash&carry and grocery chains, consumer electronic chains. That's why they likely would have standing.
Re: Hedgehog Crisps
They apparently were a flavor:
"In the UK in 1981, Hedgehog Foods Ltd decided, as a joke, to produce Hedgehog flavoured crisps (potato chips). To everyone's surprise, the crisps were a huge success.
Hedgehog flavoured crisps were actually flavoured with pork fat and no hedgehogs were used in the manufacturing process."
Word 2 was a POS
Sure, it worked for writing short articles.
But I used it for writing my undergrad thesis. And this POS deleted text from the start of the paper while I was adding text at the end....
Hoping for a landing in CA
After watching them launch on July 8 at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, I would love to watch them land at Edwards Air Force Base in California, just because I could drive to watch the landing.
But that'll only happen if the weather in Florida gets to bad for landing... Nothing personal to people in Florida...
Much better: Drop-Zero compression: just drop all zeros. Nobody needs them, anyway. Then just count the number of ones.
I leave the decompression algorithm as homework for the reader :-D
So, the Japanese government is fearmongering now?
All just more fear-mongering, apparently. At least for some people who prefer to keep their heads in the sand. Or "duck and cover."
No app calls directly into the kernel, not even C apps.
C apps use the C runtime library. And that's licensed under the LGPL. Otherwise, each and every non-free app under Linux would violate the GPL. Linking an app with the C runtime, which them may call into the kernel, is completely fine.
