The summary is cut short which requires me to click into the article. That's not fun. While I won't exactly say F-beta, I certainly don't like this either. Dice should go back to the way it was.
I found this answer on SO a couple years ago and flagged it as a favorite because I figured I might need it some day.
The short version is a lot like what people have already said, have cracked keys be detectable and then decide from there what to do.
This guy decided to redirect the users to a website to inform them that they're using a cracked key and that they should really purchase the software.
His studies seem to indicate that it works well.
This is something that I have never dealt with directly, but I saw a similar post on StackOverflow a few months ago and bookmarked it because it seemed useful.
The answer it seems is something called "Partial Key Verification": http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3550556/ive-found-my-software-as-cracked-download-on-internet-what-to-do
In short, the software would still work, but re-direct people to a page letting them know that they've been "caught" pirating software and that they should really purchase it. This won't stop everyone, but some people (especially in a business environment) won't risk "being caught", so they will purchase the software knowing that you know that they know they are pirating your software.
Once salary is satisfied, what drives us all are 3 things: Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose.
I get the sense from my friends who work on the West Coast that they get these things from their jobs. On the East Coast, it doesn't seem to occur as often (or at the very least is harder to find.) I'm not surprised that young 20-somethings bail as often as they do in such an environment.
Here's a TED talk about it: http://www.ted.com/talks/dan_pink_on_motivation.html
Step 2: Print out all the code (in very small font) and paste the code up on the wall
Step 3: Identify all the classes, functions, DBs, etc.
Step 4: Create a visual map (on a white board) of how they're all linked together.
Step 5: PROFIT!
That wasn't so hard, now, was it?
As previously mentioned, try switching to 5GHz if you can. It won't go through walls, which means that you need to locate the AP carefully to make sure you have coverage where you need it.
Agreed. The 5Ghz spectrum always seems so open and free. Not to mention that 802.11a allows for dozens of *discrete* (read: non-overlapping) channels.
To help with the "not going thru walls well" problem of 802.11a, I've found that a simple reflector placed on every antenna of your WAP can boost your signal by 10 - 12 dB (in a single direction) -- This is enough to make it through walls of a condo. It also helps reduce noise coming into your WAP as well as pick up the signal from your devices better.
They're very simple and cheap to make, too. Instructions can be found at the Free Antennas website. The designs work great for all Wifi standards.
I like it but it's time to upgrade my original desktop tower with a completely new system.
The process has been frustrating because the local stores don't sell Linux systems, and I'm having trouble finding the right answer online. After a week, my questions at the different hardware forums are basically unanswered. I like the modern day SFF computers because they're very quiet and easy to move for long weekends and trips. I just want a computer like that with all the expected ports (USB, Parallel, Card Reader), CD/DVD drive, good sound. Even Linux-supported systems turn out to have no support for onboard sound, etc. Why is this turning out to be an impossible task? Can anyone suggest a model or a Linux-friendly SFF vendor? Whatever it is has to be supported 100% by GNU/Linux/FOSS, of course."
