Re: Get this round my area..

I was watching a local station news. On this one street people keep on dumping on Sunday What do the cops do? Nothing so the local business set up cams. The dumpers don't care that cams are all around. Oh they are just dumping on the street.

MacBook Pro petition begs Apple for total recall of krap keyboards

kain preacher

J@7 it's even worse than that. Remember when Nvida had a chip problem ? They offered to cover Apples cost of doing a recall and they said no. Then when apple did do a recall they said it had to be diagnosed with their special software. Well if yo don't have video you can't run the software. Well guess what happens if you can't run the software. Repair declined.

Re: Debranding and forcing AMD out of gaming is anti-competitive and monopolistic.

Europe fires back at ICANN's delusional plan to overhaul Whois for GDPR by next, er, year

kain preacher
Silver badge

Me personally there was never a need to make this info public If you need to get a hold of the owner of a domain contact the people that registered it. If there is a legit need then pass it on to the owner. This smacks of well this is how we always did it(tradition) and now one is going to make us change.

mark l 2 I worked for charity and MS told us two things we a can reload windows on it provided we had a COA and we did not sell over a certain amount. We could also buy upgrade COA stickers or refurbished COA stickers . The refurbished COA would cost a $5 a pop but they computers had to meet certain standards.

Petty PETA rapped by judges over monkey selfie copyright stunt

kain preacher
Silver badge

you are so wrong. In 2008 the 9th heard 114,199 cases. 107 were over turned by the supreme court 33 were vacated 35 were affirmed . So over the cases that went to the supreme court yes 79% was overturned but that's 107 out of 114,199. Were are talking about les than 0.001% of all cases being over turned.

6th Circuit - 87 percent;

11th Circuit - 85 percent;

9th Circuit - 79 percent;

3rd Circuit - 78 percent;

2nd Circuit and Federal Circuit - 68 percent;

8th Circuit - 67 percent;

5th Circuit - 66 percent;

7th Circuit - 48 percent;

DC Circuit - 45 percent;

1st Circuit and 4th Circuit - 43 percent;

10th Circuit - 42 percent.

Still wrong

No because they made a settlement before the judge made this verdict. What happened is every time PETA lost they appealed . Fucknuts (AKA PETA) had more money then him so he settled and both asked for the suit to be dismissed. The judge said no for two reasons. One they already started deliberation two they said there was an interest in making a legal finding that animals do not have rights. the reason for this is peta has brought similar law suits and when it looked like it they were going to lose the dropped the suit. The judge felt like this was gaming the system. For now on the west coast PETA will have to appeal to the supreme court or except in the 9th district they can no longer bring these kinds of law suits

What makes you think the 9th does not routinely hand out sane judgements ?

UK consumer help bloke Martin Lewis is suing Facebook over fake ads

kain preacher
Silver badge

If I was him I'd sue in the US and this is why. Under the DMCA you can force the hosting company to pull face book dot com( I know you are going to say face book host them selves but you can force the issue with ICAAN) Then you can face book with civil RICO(Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) which gives enhanced/extended penalties .Predicate acts for RICO (which there must be two of) are fraud, counterfeiting(one could are those are counterfeit ads)Criminal copyright infringement( what most would call piracy but this is when you make money off copy right infringement )

Oh and since Corporations are people in the US I'd look to have criminal charges against face book.

There was a chap in the Netherlands that went around planting flowers in the pot holes. On bloke in NYC started planting trees. Here in the US i've been on some roads that were so bad the best options were to turn them in to dirt roads . These roads could not simple be repaved. You need to remove the crumbling roads and level the road bed.
