Holy shit, I didn't know that. I guess it fits the profile.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I think we are on several watchlists now. Enjoy.
Probably, but if the premise of the small flash drive for smuggling CP was implausible, a bulky HD is even more so.
A) There is this little thing called "The Internet" that people use to send each other information. Why the hell would someone go to the risk of keeping a thumb drive that can be identified as in their possession and have their fingerprints, when they can just send an encrypted file?
B) I doubt the dog can smell memory in particular, he can probably just sniff electronics. Everything nowdays has some kind of electronic component, I doubt this will be very useful.
Damn, time flies. When they took it down, I was really pissed. I tried other readers, but eventually realized reddit was a better option. I just subscribe to subreddits that might carry the content I want instead of to the feeds directly, this means news from the all the sources I want are aggregated, but by users that filter the content for me. Much better experience.
The Fisheye distortion is insanely annoying. If you are going to use fisheye lens, don't pan the camera like crazy. Who the hell does several 360s in a row with a fisheye? Insanely annoying distortion
THIS THIS THIS THIS
So much this.
My policy is exactly the same.
I used to hate how the web had outgrown the internet. I use the Internet a lot more than I use the web. I usually keep more SSH connections than open tabs, and my torrent traffic far exceeds any web use. Well, we're coming to an even sadder reality: Not only has the web eaten the Internet, a handful of websites are eating the internet.
The solution to this is obviously to avoid facebook/twitter and all that shit like the plague.
Regardless, how can they sue somebody for doing a fucking greasemonkey script? "This software tinkers with our webpage" seems to be their logic. Well, so does every browser on planet earth. HTML is a declarative language, you REQUIRE a user agent to interpret your webpage. Essentially, you are telling the user "well, here is this information, and we think it should be displayed sort of like this". That's it. The user can either parse the code on his own (aka just read the source), or write some code to do it, or use somebody else's code to parse it. How are the actions performed by this script any different from what any browser does?
If you publish a website, everytime it's displayed, you are acting as GUESTS in my computer, no the other way around, and you'll play by my rules.
It's actually kind of funny, he could have just joined the catholic church and done that for free!
Apparently Ulbritch kept his bitcoins in 8 barrels buried in the desert
Whoever pays anything for any fraction of a season, or any other TV show, when it is available on The Pirate Bay is beyond me. Don't get me started on bluray box sets.
At least the NFL doesn't harm anyone. Churches do, they harm society as a whole, and they are still tax-exempt, even when they break the rules and get involved in partisan politics.
You are trying to spread free, good code around, useful to a lot of people? Trying to contribute your knowledge and work to the community? How dare you! We're going to tax you into oblivion.
If, on the other hand, you are in the business of spreading lies about nonexistant magical beings in the sky and lobbying to get even more conservative, retrograde politicians in order to prevent people from having abortions, marrying, or otherwise being happy and doing what they want with their lifes, sure! here's your friendly tax exempt status. Don't worry if you break the rules either, turns out we need a certain high ranking officer we haven't had in a while, and we we'll never hire again, so go on! keep fucking up society, that is certainly not taxed!
The world is a seriously fucked up place.
Well, both the the British and Argentinian populations can be distracted through either football or war, and both Thatcher and Galtieri had already exploited football enough, so it was war they required.
