I can easily find laptops on eBay equipped with 4GB RAM for around $200.
Most wireless routers provide multiple SSID functionality now, so no need to buy extra devices for multiple wireless network segments.
He would get a fair trial. The problem is he would not be able to present a credible defence [...]
You say he would get a fair trial, and then immediately follow that with the very reason his trial would not be fair...
No, because likely the judge would disallow any defense he might present. It happens all the time in the US where defendants are not allowed to present a defense. Marijuana charges are one such. You are not allowed to present evidence that it provides an actual medical benefit, nor are you allowed to present evidence of a sickness which a rational person might connect with marijuana as a logical medical treatment.
That's just one example of a crime where a reasonable defense is routinely declared off-limits by judges. There are many more. Snowden's case is another one.
It's not absurd as long as the American in question is also opposed to their own country's actions. I'm one such. I think the US should be broken up into a dozen or more independent countries, because it's run by imperialist assholes.
If by absolute support you mean "controls the ballot counting," then yes, he does.
It's a bad thing, but not because the users lack knowledge of Unix archaeology. Rather, certain devs expect users to have this archaic knowledge despite reason dictating otherwise.
What one posts on a site like Slashdot isn't necessarily an indication of how they interact professionally.
Tor does not host content, it simply disguises the source request for otherwise normal Internet content accessible by a normal browser.
They're here in Washington for the US apple crop, among other harvests, so you must mean Canada. Canada isn't technically a US state, so I think your knowledge of places other than where you live is a bit off.
A spaceport isn't a factory, and there are huge hurdles to building one. The analogy to factories doesn't really apply.
Damn, and I'm all out of Sudafed.
"most southernmost" was the redundancy being referenced. It shouldn't need an explanation as to why it's redundant.
No, they are not on the same continent, geologically speaking. Perhaps you should brush up on where the tectonic plate boundaries are. Big hint: there's one running down the West Coast, which is between Texas and Hawaii. It was already pointed out that "continental" was a key word, which you have now ignored twice in order to claim your statement wasn't completely incorrect.
A long time. Most tablet and phone manufacturers pay Android royalties to MS for patents which have never been publicly disclosed. Nobody knows for sure (except certain corporate lawyers) what these patents entail. It may be that the royalty costs are just lower than the cost of the legal years required to invalidate the patents.
Have you not read more than a couple Slashdot comments? Slashdot is filled with the gullible.
