Re: top tip
"Dent in MacBook inversely proportional to dent in Wallet"
apple owners, rather than risking lethal software updates, just buy new kit every few months.
oh, i forgot, you already do that.
LOHAN is starting to take on grown-up dimensions and excitement levels are rising fast!
Re: Police declined to explain how they "snared" the suspects
they claim to be monitoring and interdicting people using tor. I don't buy that. tor is still pretty much opaque to law enforcement.
and whilst I'm glad they've busted a load of perverts, I'm also glad there are parts of the internet that are truly free.
Re: The advert
could not agree more. unfortunately today's breed of corporate marketing drone will never risk anything remotely creative. it's incredibly frustrating for ad agencies and incredibly boring for viewers.
and how banana republics start.
"the higher, the better."
fair point. market share is not everything.
i still think the herds are growing bored of apple's shiny offerings though.

Re: smashing idea, but...
when you arrive deactivate the system and let your dog patrol the garden then re-arm it just before leaving.
might need a larger dog, however.
according to zerohedge it was venture capitalist Tim Draper.
even some news websites "borrow" uncredited thumbnail images for the top stories ;)
Re: Compensate the victims
i think they mean victims of crime in general.
btw, they still have an additional 140K BTC that belonged to dread pirate roberts and which are not yet being auctioned off.
Re: Doing it wrong.
of course they're doing it wrong - the federal government never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity.
Re: Sowing confusion
well said. another example, closer to the source of this story, is the web of lies built around uri geller. lies that certain powers found quite useful, and certainly encouraged.
Re: Russia stop-over
precisely. he is in Russia through necessity, not choice. important to bear that in mind.

nice link. thank you - it's almost a shame she didn't wait until the laptop had been delivered before going public. might have been interesting...

bad journalism. you are, at best, just repeating what the cops have told you.
you say he shipped 104kg mdma to USA in 18 months.
but then you say he sent 500g mdma per week.
doesn't add up.
do some fucking investigating rather than echoing the feds
if there are "backdoors" to be discovered, I would expect to find them in the cryptographic code. since this has yet to be audited, it's too early to declare that truecrypt is kosher.
Re: @Tom 7
i sold 2000 or so bitcoins through gox between Feb and June 2012. the trading itself was kushti but there were some nerve-shredding delays when it came to wiring GBP back to the UK. it always turned up in the end but I remember on at least two occasions the delays and lack of explanation lead me to believe my money had gone missing.
Re: I've just...
some envelopes don't even need to be steamed. they used to slide a thin, split sliver of wood in through the top gap (where there's no adhesive), roll up the paper, extract. it can be put back into the envelope by reversing the process.
this is symptomatic...
global equity markets have entirely decoupled from underlying economic fundamentals. as the indices are pumped to new records by the magic of QE, it is hardly surprising to find vapour-punting IPOs taking advantage of the new environment. it will all end very, very badly.
it's many worlds, innit
the moment of entanglement is the branch point - one for each quantum outcome. the randomly selected experiment determines which branch is observed. the entangled entities don't need to communicate with each other.
get your facts right. silk road specifically prohibited the sale of services/items designed to harm other people.

Re: Italian and spacecraft don't play well
now that it's a heap of smouldering ash, maybe it should be referred to as a "Tesla among spacecraft"

you're really not getting it. let me break it down for you: THERE IS NO ANONYMOUS
Re: @ eSeM - Another bug fix ....
"You're kidding, right?
I'm, have it known, not an Apple fan. Not at all. But that doesn't stop me from applauding a company for listening to customer complaints and doing something about it.
How can that be wrong?
They were a lot faster than Microsoft, who took quite a while to give people their start button back when the complaints about Modern/ Metro/ THD* started rolling in.
And Canonical doesn't listen to their customers at all, as it seems. Lucky for me, as I happen to like Unity, but a bother to a lot of other users who left and got all Minty and such. But then, they don't ask for your money, so let's cut some slack there and just get something else if you don't like it.
So, dissing Apple for fixes and changes that users want? No, no and no. You should praise them for it!
And that's from an almost fanatic non-fanboi."
i think you should write a musical about it
Whither goest thou, Apple in thy shiny car in the night?
the Russian loony man has only 200 social media followers. this is how an advanced alien entity communicates to humanity?
Re: Powerful hallucinogen?
THC is a very potent molecule. I think that is what was meant. Have a few vaporizer hits of white rhino and you'll get the picture.
Re: Supermarkets? Seriously?
i generally take well under 30 minutes to knock mine out when I sit down in front of the computer.
Re: No one here remembers TEMPEST then?
"Or, alternatively, use valves (vacuum tubes) not semiconductors. Like everyone was astounded to find in that Russian fighter whose name I forget."
that reminded me of the astronaut showing his soviet counterpart one of the special ballpoint pens NASA developed, at huge expense, that worked in zero-g. when the cosmonaut looked unimpressed, the american asked how they had solved the problem. "we use a pencil".
Re: A few points
does anyone ever read below the faded out bit on these long posts?
no offence meant either, i'm just curious.
"WINSTON CHURCHILL'S PERSONAL PAPERS"
i immediately thought "rizla".
glad it's friday
In theory the Cu might be worth the same in the ground as a replacement. What about once you have paid someone to dig it up, make good, transport it, traded it to a metal dealer, etc. etc?
