If you take your old system and convert it to a VM you can then shut down all but the necessary services and add a stateful firewall on the host. This will go a long way towards reducing the security risk.
The message has been, if you want privacy, use your mobile device (and don't vote for Democrats and their spy programs).
Do you honestly think that a Republican government wouldn't do just as much spying?
Which needs to have the little metal piece fitted to the bridge of the nose.
And of course this type of mask is nowhere near as nice as a half/full silicone mask with separate filters.
For the paper masks in question you need to fit the metal nose-piece properly to your nose.
I agree, for the rubber/silicone masks with filter(s) and exhalation valves there's no real fitting involved, but most people in China apparently aren't wearing those.
The stated goal of the patent system was to improve technology by making stuff public in return for a limited monopoly. (The alternative was having everyone keep their stuff as trade secrets, which could get lost if the right people died at the wrong time.)
If you have two people independently invent the same thing then that seems to indicate that it wasn't in danger of being lost and so therefore shouldn't be eligible for protection.
In the real world once a patented idea has been made public it becomes very difficult to prove independent invention, so the window for this sort of thing to happen would be very small--basically from the time someone starts working on something until the time that someone files for a patent on it.
The ISP should be able to shape traffic between subscribers based only on their relative bandwidth and SLA, not the traffic type. The ISP should only do traffic-type-based shaping if the subscriber asks them to, and the shaping should only affect that subscriber.
They don't own the dealerships, but they do set the prices.
All Toyota dealerships within 2000km of my house had the same prices when I was car shopping. And they didn't dicker. If you were really good you could get a couple of accessories thrown in, but the price on the car itself does not go below Toyota's suggested price.
And Toyota parts in Canada cost double what they cost in the USA.
There is no group with a lower aggregate IQ then new car buyers. Not even 'audiophiles'.
Have to quibble a little bit. I bought a new Toyota Matrix in 2005 even knowing the downsides of buying new. I had a couple primary reasons that I still think are valid:
1) At the time there were few hatchbacks available used anywhere within 1000km. Well-used Civics were going for 10K.
2) I have every intention of driving my vehicle into the ground, in another decade or so.
Now there are hatchbacks/crossovers from everyone all over the place, so when we add a second vehicle I'll probably go used.
There are many parts of the USA where the "Deep Winter" is more like -40. So your overall range is roughly either -40-100 in F or -40-38 in C.
ISPs can still throttle torrents to ensure voip traffic moves through.
No! If I dedicate all my bandwidth to torrents and you dedicate all yours to VoIP why should you get preferential treatment?
The only fair solution is for an ISP to do per-subscriber shaping within their network. Each subscriber gets throughput relative to the bandwidth that they paid for. Traffic type shouldn't matter when comparing traffic for two different subscribers.
If an individual subscriber wants to prioritize VoIP over torrents they can do that on their own equipment (or have the ISP do it for them). But that should affect only the traffic for that subscriber, and should have ZERO impact on any other subscriber's traffic.
The only fair solution is for the ISP to shape traffic per-subscriber.
If the subscriber wants to prioritize different traffic types then they can do that internally once it hits their equipment.
You could let the municipality own the last mile and bill to cover maintenance, since that is pretty much a natural monopoly.
Then the ISPs could compete for the connection to the outside world and tie into neighbourhood switches. This would be far fairer to ISPs since it would limit the amount of infrastructure necessary to get started. And the municipality often already owns water/sewer/etc. so they're used to digging in people's yards.
A basic monthly cost to cover the act of having a wire connected to the house, and a separate usage-based component to cover bandwidth costs and infrastructure upgrades.
We did all the right stuff (breastmilk, good food, have a cat, play in dirt, etc.)
However, both my kids are sensitive (not allergic) to soy protein and cow-based dairy products, and my older kid seems to react to gluten.
We discovered the dairy issue while he was still breastfeeding...he got really bad gas/bloating when my wife consumed dairy products. Took us months to realize what was going on.
