I'm old enough that I didn't have to look it up, but where do they actually still use telegraphs?

That would probably work well for home users, with limited devices on their LAN and the privileges to set networking on the machine.
Sounds like you thought I meant a static IP rather than a static address for DNS. There is really no reason to have your DNS continually reset. Use the same one all the time regardless of the size of your network. Not changing is what I meant by static.
All the downvotes I got up there are presumably from people not thinking I meant static DNS address. Not sure why anybody would think that though, as it doesn't make sense.
I don't do Windows support, but if I did I'd suggest setting a static address. People would do well to learn how to take control of their DNS anyway.
It's obvious why someone would make something like this. It's cool. But I can't imagine why anybody would use it in practice.
Have you tried putting an ad in the paper?
use green energy, the company reports that its data centers in Canada are 99 per cent powered by locally sourced hydroelectric power
Also no doubt uses the freshest high quality Northern air for cooling. And I expect vitamin E will help keep my data from ageing. Seriously, I'm probably not alone in wondering what the real product is here.
Such think, much tank.
To save money on proprietary updates from the software vendor. It's how the world works. Companies buy services from other companies and when it comes to software that needs to be updated daily to take market conditions into account, it's not in-house resources. So, the bottom line is that a blast furnace needs to be directly responsive to sales and market conditions. A blast furnace has a huge lag time in response so it's not like operating many other machines. I hope that answers you question.
"You know, something in the $100k a year for half a days "work" a week."
You can't be serious. Although the hours are longer, truck drivers and miners make that much. Surely he'd expect an executive level salary, even for half days. But then again, we're talking USA with it's, soon to be even more, depressed economy. (Disclaimer, I'm in Canada)
You do realise that the "red surge" is for ceremonial use right? They don't wear that stuff on normal duty.
"Funny that they don't get cameras from the same place as the other police forces that are rather happy with them."
And it did look like some US police forces were happy with them precisely because they were prone to breaking so there was plausible deniability.
It's not satire. It's similar to scientology and people actually internalise those values. Besides, if it was satire, the trailer wouldn't have made me vomit.
If I had a dollar for every time Microsoft does something that I find distasteful . . . . .
The article fails to mention the sport in question. I had to do a search to find out.
I'm still working on it. It's hard to send the right message without just telling them to f**k off, which they wouldn't understand any more than they do the actual internet issues. This form is written with a mind to get the answers they want.
Since the ones asking the question don't know how net security works and they're asking people who likely know less, I can only assume that this is really about something else.
In fact I think some of the focus should be shifted. As the article points out:
the underlying issue remains the DNS itself
The current DNS problems seem almost hopeless and not enough effort is put into solving them. Security holes in BIND are trivial compared to issues with the DNS system itself which are still going to facilitate abuse on the grand level that we've been seeing lately.
We don't need another law. There's too many already. What we need is more education so people can learn to be critical of everything they hear.
Actually I think that the general populace gained an intelligence point during this election. Not only did many see that the polls are not as competent as had been thought, but people are starting to learn that much of the press cannot be trusted and are actually reprinting government propaganda. That's a step in the right direction and something which cannot be achieved with a law.
It's a cool looking login page, but you don't have to go there. People on this forum either have secure computers or know not to go there, so ... meh.
"(Insert appropriate citation from Shakespeare's "Henry V", whatever it is)"
That would be
Admit me Chorus to this history;
Who prologue-like your humble patience pray,
Gently to hear, kindly to judge, our play.
I'll be watching the show.
Absolutes are always a myth. However, the internet has never reached the level of reliability that would normally be expected from something that we call infrastructure. Unfortunately with constant development and sales demanding new things be implemented before they can reasonably be considered out of beta, things don't look like they're going to improve any time soon. Microsoft knows this.
This sort of distrust is everywhere and regardless of the motives in this case, I see it as a small step for open source to gain more favour in the future.
There is something to be said for encouraging investment in startups, but we must not forget that there is money in the VC business even when a startup fails. Could this suggestion end up making the VC business more profitable without startups actually gaining much ground? I note that liquidation preference is designed to protect an investor's capital.
"I want nothing to do with software or data that's in any way specific to an ISP, a cellular provider or their partners."
I couldn't agree more. I really get the the impression that Dr Roslyn Layton represents the interests of someone other than me.
Funny, but where I grew up we all had to pay for it. Some people could afford it and others couldn't.
This thread is a couple days old, but in case anybody is still watching, there is a patch being pushed out right now and most people should have it automatically already. Also, here is a description of the problem:
So, it wasn't very serious in the first place.
Good idea. But there is already "security slider" which goes from high to low and which automatically adjusts various aspects like that without the user having to understand a lot of details.
or just another smear campaign?
there have only been two deaths in the UK from terrorist attacks in the last 11 years
And yet the effect of "terrorism" has been vastly broader than that.
Internet companies which may once have seen themselves as neutral carriers of content are coming to understand that it is incumbent on them also to edit that content: but it is a role with which not all are comfortable, and the process is fraught with difficulty.
The practice and acceptance of censorship has been pushed beyond anything that is even remotely acceptable in a civilised society. The loss of freedom due to the opportunistic actions of governments is unacceptable.
The Earl of Sandwich probably didn't get paid either. Let's make Britain great again.
I wonder why the others didn't answer.
Reviews are still mostly useless though.
And what about the cost in ruined lives. How do you add that into the price?
Amazon isn't going to destroy anybody.
And quite naturally there will be a resistance from the general public as well. More and more people are using stronger security measures, and the uptake of things like Qubes OS and Tails is increasing. I have faith that we'll see more protective software developed for the general public. The internet is a natural ecosystem which will evolve "FBI resistant" strains of software.
Well that's exactly why the problem occurred in the first place. It's six of one and half a dozen of the other.
Melanie Joly also has other ideas such as an ISP tax.
"Just how was this supposed to do anyone who pays the bills any good?"
Apparently that's proprietary information.
When bankruptcy happens, the VCs get their money back because it's protected. It's all the common shareholders who get hosed.
If a Cabinet minister decides she wants a backdoor to be introduced into some software, is there anything that can stop him or her?
Ability to code? Closed source? Lack of commit rights?
I'm surprised that no developer for this stuff has come forward to expose some of this. Are they under that much company control, not competent, or just not ethically inclined? Surely the importance of security has crossed somebody's mind who works in that industry.
"I don't get the it's newer so it MUST be better mantra."
I'm with you. Stability and freedom over fashion any time.

I'll be waiting for my floppy in the mail.
I can't believe that Spiegel, regardless of their personal preference, would actually believe that it would be be illegal to block parts of what they have on their site. I could chose to not go to their site at all and contravene their wishes even more.
One might think the bank is supposed to insure against this sort of thing. Them being into it for the money (like the hackers), I wouldn't be surprised if they try to wiggle out of it though.
The world's oldest business model.
A dedicated and protected connection between point A and point B is worth its weight in copper.
"The remaining nine supplementary seats were awarded to parties that crossed the 5% national electoral threshold in order to give them a total number of seats equivalent to their national share of the vote."
Proportional representation is good. Not only does it give the majority a win, but everybody gets representation. This, of course, is only desirable if you want fairness in the system in preference to other qualities.
