Not unless you use a hidden camera. If you use a visible camera and no one objects, you can assume their implicit permission
But if you're standing on a pier photographing a beach, aren't you 'hidden' in that most subjects do not see your camera? 16MP sensors are amazing things when coupled with a good lens.
The trick with good times is when they don't last. What we see, more so in this cycle that most, is centralization of power and responsibility/regulation (there has never existed a more regulated society than the modern West).
The cost of this is extreme - by some estimates, most people pay 30-60% of their earnings for the year to support such a structure (if you don't understand the average 22% cost of goods as embedded income taxes, google for the Harvard economics study). When we have an extreme downturn, like now (we need 350,000 jobs per month added for 10 straight years just to get back to "Bush era" employment numbers), people can't afford it. Just this week we have the example of Obama saying that people should cancel their phone service to pay for his healthcare scheme, but that's just a glaring example of a pervasive problem.
Only so many people will allow their homes to be confiscated to pay for the ostentatious lifestyle in DC and on Wall Street, while they're having trouble putting food on the table for their families. If trends continue, the USD will lose its place as the national reserve currency (debt-to-gdp is over 100% now; Bretton Woods was agreed upon when the USD was still backed by gold) which will cause a rapid loss of buying power. And the more the US outsources, the less will be there when the USD loses its value. At some point, they can crank up the printing presses to fund poverty programs, but when people stop accepting dollars, there's nothing else to do but to implement wage and price controls and/or seize the means of production. The odds of a revolt go up with each step along the way.
The shame of it is, we can see this coming, and we can recognize that we need decentralization and de-escalation of power, but the political system does not allow for it to back itself down. Even the very name, "lawmakers" is telling - "law-removers" isn't in the lexicon.
Jefferson himself predicted the situation, and even recommended revolution as the solution. I'd rather see a peaceful and economic one.
For a networking or storage appliance, it should get on the network using stateless autoconfiguration.
Hey, man, you've given yourself away as being from the future.
pfSense is a good example of how to do an interface well for network configuration. I'm not sure that defining a network topology in a directory server would be easier or better.
Do you mean that in most countries, if you take a picture of a crowded beach, you'd need six thousand model releases to be legal?
'Cause that doesn't sound sane. Not that most regulations are.
and apparently there's nothing more newsworthy coming across the firehose. I suppose we should take this as a sign that many people have stopped contribuitng to
So we learned nothing from the 2001 US bombardment and invasion of Saudi Arabia then?
Either Ahmadinejad or Assad are beind this one. It doesn't matter that Ahmadinejad is out of power - he wanted to nuke Israel (it doesn't matter if that was a mistranslation). Assad just needs a good bombing anyway (it doesn't matter how he's going to price his oil).
'Cause Blackwater got BILLS TO PAY (it doesn't amtter that Blackwater changed its name to Xe and then to Academi to cover its tracks). And we've got bombs on the shelf that are getting close to their expiration date! Plus: jobs!
Hey, maybe one of the eds just randomly pushed a journal post to the front page.
The bastards now are so full of themselves that they don't even pretend anymore.
Well, that is part of it - to show you what's there place and your place. Like at the airport, nobody expects to find a bomb in the keester of a midwest sales manager, but he's gonna get the anal probe so that he knows just who's in charge. It's worse than most people would treat a dog, really.
The right wing should be opposed on free-market principles. The left wing should be opposed on environmental grounds. So which politicians should be in favour of this regulation again?
The apolitical ones, untainted by all that divisive right/left idealism. You know, the ones everyone votes for: Democrats and Republicans.
If you think that's not Interstate Commerce, I have some marijuana to sell you.
They'll make you an offer you can't refuse.
Chris Christy isn't the only one with machinations.
What, you don't think it's coincidence that the NJ State Flag has a severed horse's head at the top, do you?
But a few X fanbois think they know better 'cuz hmm erh.... network transparency!
One way or the other, networked Wayland will get figured out - I don't need X primitives across the wire, I just need to run an app. This can be figured achieved.
I'm more concerned that security is an afterthought in Wayland, and it'll get bolted on at some point. X's security is enough to make an auditor's skin crawl and Wayland isn't (yet) any better.
Maybe Wayland will forever be a development idea and somebody will fork it to address practical concerns. It might not even be too early for a fork - for as long as large numbers of people have been expressing concerns about both issues, we (meaning I, casually) haven't heard any recognition from the project that those are important issues and design work is taking those needs into consideration.
I'm not bummed about the $20, but I am bummed about the letter.
I get that costs are going up. But the letter cited three things:
1) cost of fuel
2) prime video
3) prime kindle books
The cost of fuel has not gone up year-over-year. If anything, motor vehicle fuel costs are down a little bit, and anything that's fungible for natural gas has gone down.
So, Prime Video. It's a "free perk" but now you've got to pay for it.
3) Kindle books. I use the Kindle app, but I don't own an Amazon device so I don't even get this. Amazon even knows there's not a hardware kindle linked to my account - they could have tailored the letter.
So, that leaves me with the apparent idea that I need to pay $20 a year for Prime Video, which ain't much to write home about. If I had the imaginary choice, I'd gladly lose access to it for the $20.
But, since I'm smart enough to realize that Prime only appears to be paid for by unicorn farts, I would have appreciated an more forthright letter. I'm not gonna cancel, but the operation seems like it's getting a few cracks.
