Yep. Running servers is against Verizon's residential ToS. Regardless of how much BW the guy is using, he's breaking the rules.
Another misleading Slashdot title. This is fairly run of the mill for residential ISP service. I bet it was a short conversation! They called him to try to find out if he was doing anything against their ToS, because of his bandwidth usage, and he flat out admitted it.
If he had answered "Netflix" (and that was believable), would the conversation have gone differently? Hard to say, because that conversation didn't even happen.
Sensory data can be used by built-in software to disable firing if the gun is pointed at a child
What do I do if I'm being assaulted by a dwarf?
A crowded, dark movie theater, during an action scene is pretty much the second worst place you could possibly attempt a defensive shooting. You would be fairly unable to accurately identify your target, to clear the space in front of and behind him, to take aim or to prevent yourself from getting shot or harmed by others, police included, during or after the event.
That's a great point. One that I would hope any defensive shooters would take into consideration. (I know that might be difficult in the heat of the moment.) Maybe they did take it into consideration. If I was in that environment, and I was still breathing when it was all over, and I found out there were folks who CHOSE not to shoot because of the poor shooting conditions, I would thank them.
Don't foist too much of the geeky stuff on them, have fun with it
Every time McCoy says "dammit", everybody drink. Every time Spock says "fascinating", drink. Every time Kirk gets his shirt off, drink. Every time an un-named red-shirt gets killed, drink. Every time Uhura says "scanning all frequencies", drink.
Of course, if you're watching next gen, any time Wesley saves the day, they mention tachyons or other particles with magic properties, or Deanna Troi wears the cheerleader outfit, or Warf drinks prune juice
But, in the end, maybe just let sleeping dogs lie
My Ex and I did the drinking game thing with TNG (although she was already a Trekkie)
Every time Riker hit on a woman, drink
Every time Data split up a contraction, drink
Every time Picard ordered Earl Grey, drink
In the later seasons we added, every time Ensign Ro rolls her eyes
A model is no more a sex object than a store mannequin is a sex toy..
Tell that to Pyramid Head.
An older lady called me one day extremely apologetic. She kept lamenting to me how sorry she was and how bad she felt, and keep asking me if all of my other customers were calling and complaining. It was her fault! She was adamant about that. Finally as she calmed down a bit, and I asked her why she was so upset. "I think I broke the Internet". I looked at my boss, who had wandered to my desk, (he could hear her frantic apologies through my headset), and I gave him a Spock-like eyebrow raise, covered my mic, and told him "She broke the internet." He chuckled, said "Have fun!" and went back to his desk.
So I explained to her that the Internet wasn't broke, and how it was highly unlikely that she could have broken the internet, so don't worry. She was fairly calm at this point, so I asked her "Ma'am, so what made you so concerned that you called me? What happened?" Her response was: "Well, I had an icon on my screen that said 'The Internet', and I think I accidentally deleted it. I thought I deleted the whole Internet!"
Poor lady. Remember when the IE icon actually said "The Internet"? You couldn't delete it either (not without some IT knowledge she didn't possess). So I walked her through auto-arranging her desktop icons and POOF there it was. She must have moved it off screen.
It's a tough job, but I do miss feeling like a hero.
and Halloween suggests paganism.
You mean the religions that most of the christian holidays are based on in the first place?
which happens to be the reason Jehovah's Witnesses don't celebrate them.
A large part of me says "FUCK ethics, give that teach a raise."
We're marking that insightful now? Listen, I was one of those kids. I took shit about my beliefs from teachers and students alike, and when it comes from teachers it will fuck you up majorly. Having someone you are supposed to be able to trust ridicule you for your beliefs or for your family's beliefs. THAT is cruel.
It is hard to be a JW and go to public schools. It shouldn't be. I thought this was America.
Christians attacking other Christians..... *sigh*
I was a Jehovah's Witness for the first 30-odd years of my life, and neither me nor the many hundreds of other Jehovah's Witnesses that I knew would have ever been offended by the mention of birthdays in a test. Why are they being over-sensitive in retarded ways?
My entire immediate family are Jehovah's Witnesses, and that's the religion I was raised in (as I got older I realized I just didn't agree with some of the basic principles of Christianity). They aren't the kind of people to raise a stink at the existence of the term "birthdays". They explain to their children what birthdays are, and why their faith disagrees. Same with Halloween. Same with Easter. Same with CHRISTMAS.

Thank you for this. I just ran out of gin.
It was fun to watch it unfold, but I got bored. (Teampoison IS lulzsec, no Teampoison is out to GET lulzsec! Joe Black isn't even real!) It was fun for awhile, but crackers (yes I'm still trying to hang on to that distinction) don't tweet.
