This guy is showing ignorance of the law. He gave them a reason to believe he did something wrong, and then wants a warrant? First, the warrant will be rubberstamped based upon his comments, but second, they don't need a warrant once that is established.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!

You see, back in the grand old days of the USSR, all the rage was creating the "New Soviet Man" who would have all the best qualities and truly bring about World Socialism. All differences between race, ethnicity, even gender would be erased. Everyone would be the same fine specimens. We see how well that worked out.
It's amazing that the LA school district can't think of anything new, so has to replicate the failed policies of the Soviets.
Real airgapped networks have physical separation as well. Think Tempest.
An aircraft has limitations in this regard, but I doubt seriously that the wifi systems on the plane are interconnected in any way with the avionics.
We already want to change every law for this billionaire fucker. Now he gets to not fail when he fails.
Nice justification for that asshole Assange. Lying and exaggerating and raping, and avoiding justice - that's been his life story.
But keep rationalizing out what he's done. He's a murdering, meritless troll, nothing more. He's been responsible for more people being killed than anyone reading this, and lives being destroyed through his thoughtless, purposeful divulging of Manning's traffic. Blood all over his disgusting hands.
May he rot in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for the rest of his life.
In a country where owning a typewriter was a punishable crime, imagine what concocting your own IT would be like?
People forget so quickly.
I'm reminded of Keynes' warning about "In the long run, we're all dead".
At the cost of doing nothing else.
I'm sure the potential knock on the door in the middle of the night had something to do with the MacGyver attitude. That said, the juice isn't worth the squeeze.
The Soviets are kicking themselves that they didn't think of this.
I have similar memories of F-15 Strike Eagle II which was 320x200 in 16 or 256 colors (if you had VGA). Looked great back then - today we'd laugh at it and call it an amorphous blob. Flying those missions against the Soviets or Iran was a load of fun.
I had a DX-66 with the same switch. I just left it on at all times. I honestly rarely used the switch, even on my XT compatible. Most of the uses by 1987 (which was when I got it) revolved around BASICA, of all things, and I didn't have that, since it was a clone and had GW-BASIC which had a subset of the timing issues of BASICA.
Usually, RomeUS comparisons are trite, uninformed and boring. In this case...you actually have a good point.
I'm drawn back to Jefferson's comment about the tree of Liberty needing refreshing with the blood of tyrants and patriots from time to time.
The original 486DX was released in 1989 and ran at 20mhz. It included a FPU, previously an add-on coprocessor on x86 chips.
Then, the 486SX was released, which disabled the FPU and was offered at speeds as slow as 16mhz.
The 486DX topped out at 50mhz, but then on-chip clock doubling was offered as the 486DX2, raising speeds up to 66mhz. Then clock tripling, finishing up at 100mhz with the 486DX4.
Earlier boxes had turbo buttons because they could shift back into a nominally PC/PC/XT compatible 4.77mhz (in the case of 8088/8086 boxes) or PC/AT compatible 6 or 8mhz (in the case of 286/386 boxes). It actually had a good reason - many early games were highly dependent on the system's clock speed.
