you missed the part where he is the paying customer, and as a paying customer he gets worse experience than a pirate
if you have iso md5 or sha1 sums, you can record them on read only media and then use a known good OS (this 5 year old Linux live CD will do fine) to verify it on an airgapped PC
similarly with the files, just switch the read only media to a disk with installed system behind a read-only adapter
Linux, 'cause this features come standard there
as Chozo said, this doesn't help for canvas fingerprinting
well, how about the distributors providing a site with half as much of content in a single place that I can watch on demand on any device of my choosing, without problems with stupid DRM
most of Europe doesn't even get Netflix, yet alone Netflix with the same content as in US
With search results they are precise to a single comma placement, but with YouTube they are fine to comply to all the shotgun fired DMCA takedowns, even if the claimed reason is they include barely audible music in public domain.
If you ever wondered who Google does respond to...
Bug fixes to such an old OS? ha, good one!
do you want a Pentium Pro with them, or those MMX extensions are too newfangled too?
"What are these few basic checks that can make a self-signed certificate trustworthy and give full confidence to all your visitors?"
Those are the same checks that regular certificates from "big names" do - check if the email comes from firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or that you can place a file with specific content on the server. All domain validated certificates require you to have control over that only.
The certificate doesn't mean that the content is trustworthy or that the content comes from a given entity (unless it's a green-bar-enabling EV certificate). It just says that the same people that controlled the domain at some past time are the ones that are controlling the connection you are doing right now.
The mineshaft^W evilness gap!
It's snowing in hell, obviously
Except the "given away Win 10" is actually a 1 year trial copy
also known as "hosting"
Your average punter has no idea what a browser is, let alone that Google isn't "The Internet".
And I don't care about google shopping, it has always been utter garbage so I've been using different sites. The problem is that they abuse their monopoly in any way they can: YouTube users turned into G+ users, 60fps YouTube - Chrome only, 360° YouTube - Chrome only, gmail IMAP - non standard compliant, gmail POP3 non existent, offline gmail - you guessed it Chrome only. That's just few examples.
Shopping is just the tip of the iceberg.
either I'm watching youtubers which don't enable this kind of ads or my version of ABP does some wonders, as I literally never see ads other than the ones _maker_ of the video inserted
what is scary is that Stallman is basically always right, he's just sometimes proven right 10 years later, not right away
Morons, the lot of 'em.
...because the only technical expertise resides inside US, especially after they have offshored all jobs they could.
No cryptographic library in any RHEL5 release under support (including extended support channels) is TLS1.2 version intolerant.
Yes, OpenSSL in it doesn't support TLSv1.2, but clients don't have to fall back to TLSv1.0 to be able to connect.
Well, I wouldn't call it exactly cheap, terabyte of stored data will cost you $10 a month. That's $120 a year. At the same time you can buy a 1TB drive (hardly the cheapest per GB) for $65. Times 5 or 10 years (typical of long term storage) and it's going into serious money territory.
Or in other words, you can buy two drives a year for the price of same amount of Galcier storage!
For a storage that will cost you additionally to retrieve (realistically $0.10 per GB), those are exorbitant prices. It may be fine for occasional ODF, but it certainly is not for images, films, database dumps, etc..
@P.Lee: "All you really need to do is hook it up to a serial port and the power supply switch."
That assumes you're using a real OS, not Windows. And since it's the suits that make the business plans, it has to be Windows compatible, otherwise they won't believe it is actually working unless they see the Desktop.
Opera inc. is Norwegian company. And while they do have oil, it doesn't look like US wants to bring Freedom®™ to them just yet.
well, even if it doesn't result in users complaining (they want their cat macros and want them now, those pesky warnings are just in the way), it still causes bad PR and obviour error to the _admin_ that runs the site.
of course most of the home routers are not vulnerable, they usually ship software that's at least 5 years old!
Remember Linux 2.6? Most routers still chug along with 2.4.
critical vulns on SOHO routers are a problem, but Heartbleed is not one of them
check how many people Red Hat employs, then compare the stats "per capita"
using profanities makes it 100% sure that the other side will get it that you are not "just displeased" and that your comments can be just brushed aside
you don't have the luxury of verbal intonation in email context
@Alan Johnson: They tortured him until he couldn't take it any more. If that isn't the definition of "basically murdered", it should be.
Don't dismiss such issues as trivial, this makes it more likely for the situation to occur again.
@Don Jefe " the entire Linux movement is being denied the commercial support it so desperately needs so that 'free' isn't the only thing the general public thinks when they hear 'Linux'. "
Red Hat, SuSE and Novell, all of them sell commercial Linux support, from the kernel up to font rendering in the browser. And those are just the three largest companies that do Linux support. There are many more.
So, what the hell are you talking about?!
I've always used nokia phones, and each of them survived more than 3 years of use, even with the multitude of times I dropped them on floor
the only one I replaced because it broke was the one I dropped into water -- worked fine for 3 or 4 months after I dried it, but ultimately it went down
dunno about proper, but cyanogenmod has builds for it, we will have to wait few more months for Meamo or Sailfish, but I wouldn't hold my breath for it
@Vincent Ballard: you can authenticate the connection after it has been established (see channel bonding) so the library should allow for that
it shouldn't be the default, of course
it is a partial outage in a service used by some for informing about infrastructure outages.
So yes, it is newsworthy on an IT site.
References to Oscar Selfie are just the "biting the hand" part of El Reg style.
Do they think we live in 1700? cause that's the only rational explanation for the assumption that we still don't know what Netflix has to do in the US to provide acceptable service to their customers...
protip: start selling packages based on actual limits, not inflated ones and you'll get even more money from people that want actually unlimited unlimited plan and you'll still get loads of money from punters that can't tell the difference between bit an byte
@Nick Ryan: If they had noses like that, they would already be breaking the light speed barrier every time they shook their heads while saying "no, we don't spy on people"
you shouldn't have been running windows in the first place
The rule is you're lucky to even find inters that are worth hiring, let alone worth high pay.
The problems are are on both sides of the fence
It looks like someone's pockets have just been hit, and it hurt, it hurt a lot.
If I was a little bit less cynic about it I might have said that this will make them learn, but I've seen in too many times.
@AC: maybe, the first or the second year after that happened
then the people that run them would get a clue and do what they should have done since the start: put them on ISP level VPNs completely separate from Internet
we already have the technology to be nearly 100% safe, they are just not using it
also, it seems that the idea of "fail safe" has escaped you
@Dan 55: the kettle is obviously a bounjor registered name
"Barter is surely different in that it is trading things that have intrinsic value."
you mean like small carbon monocrystals and aluminium oxide with trace amounts of iron, titanium or chromium? (that's diamonds and sapphires for the uninitiated) There's no such thing as "intrinsic value".
@WetAWorld How did it go... Ah right: "If they do nothing wrong they have nothing to fear".
Big corps and governments shaft us at every step. The people try to show that thy don't like it and they are jailed within minutes. Fat fish fuck up the economy, they get bonuses.
"does not share data, collaborate or collude with any government spy agencies such as NSA or GCHQ anywhere in the world,"
yeah, they just employ a bunch of morons that agreed to work for lowest wage, morons that wouldn't be able to tell the difference between AES and double ROT13
I have very similar setup (exact same CPU) with a SSD, and I can say that the CPU is the limiting factor, the SSD does make the system feel snappy, but put any background number crunching and you feel the lack of oomph
while in principle I agree, there is also the problem of Personally identifiable information as leaking such data makes you a target to sue
It simple what will happen: no one will get any bandwidth and the base stations will turn into torches
both are a sure way to discourage me from even testing the stuff
The Joe Average doesn't care. We already have all the technology needed for secure communication. You've got your GPG, your private Jabber servers your OTA encryption.
The problem is, nobody is using it!
@Alan Brown: considering how often Greenpeace and other green terrorists use the symbol to scare people, you'd guess that there are no people alive over the age of ***teen that don't know what a trefoil means.
the stupidity of people doesn't cease to amaze
@An0n C0w4rd: IPv6 or modern wifi architecture in XP? you make me laugh
Microsoft didn't add support for AES or TLS1.0 to XP, ever. Both of which predate RTM version of it by years! Yet alone the SP1, SP2 or SP3... And don't make me remember IE6. Browser so bad, even its maker advertised against it!
It's a good end to bad riddance.
"cost"? you mean the games that are 25% more expensive and for which 30%, 50%, 75% sales are completely unheard of? (just look at Steam or any bargain bin in local supermarket to see the PC situation)
"ease of use"? you mean the HDD installs or the 2GB patches you need to download so that you can finish them?
Consoles were cheaper and easier to use, but that ended sometime around PS2 and original xbox era. Now consoles are just underpowered PCs with all the problems plaguing PCs with few extras throws in for good measure. So excuse me while I replay Skyrim with mods, the one I bought for 4 quid. On a PC that is cheaper than PS4.
Yeah, because it's so much better to have the toxic waste spewed all over the plant for tens of years than to bury it in one place with safety mechanisms that are over engineered to hell and back few times over.
Maybe your organism can handle trace amounts of lead and mercury and high amounts of soot in atmosphere but mine will take twice as high background radiation any time of the year. Life in general have evolved to deal with the latter, not the former.
