You mean when Tridgdell violated the EULA and illegally accessed the Bitkeeper service with the intent to reverse engineer, when Linus said not to? Tridgdell claims to have done it to help the Linux project by gaining access to meta data not available to the free version of the client, but Linus agreed to the EULA and had access to this information already. Because of Tridgdell's actions, Linus had a large mess to clean up.

Linus only goes off the rails like this for nothing but complete and utter unforgivable incompetence. They deserve exactly what he said. He calls it like it is, and I respect him for that. No beating around the bush when people are doing the most horrible of "mistakes".

Unless you want to reinvent uPnP for v6

What are you talking about? PFSense supports IPv6 uPnP with the base install. Just enable uPnP service and it will allow uPnP to punch holes in the firewall for the requesting IPv6 address. Worked just fine with my Windows box and Torrent. It was quite turn-key. Enable service, done.

If, however, time slows as it approached the blackhole and the particle never actually crossed the event horizon

Can someone please explain this. It seems to be accepted that not only does the object's time slows down as it approaches the event horizon, but it's velocity does also. I don't get that. If an object is moving away from me at 0.9999c, I could expect is to actually be moving away from me at that speed, not slowing down relative to me. If from my perspective an object has stopped moving, then it is no longer moving relative to me and its time should be pretty much the same to my reference.

I seem to be missing something. I assume it has to do with gravitational fields instead of "proper" velocity.

Why are you comparing "PE" in a 4 year degree to a fitness club? It's a full on class where you spend most of your time learning in a lecture hall. As for "hands on" skills, so many people that learn these "skills", but only know exactly what they were taught and nothing more. Those "hands on" skills have expiration dates when the technology changes. If you really want to learn something useful, learn they theory behind those skills. While theory and "hands on" skills can both be learned, most places tend to focus on one or the other and theory is much more important.
