Because they already have facilities in Sao Paulo, so this wouldn't be worthy of a press release if they said South America

"That seems to be enough"
Until you don't upgrade your kernel/sshd/apache and get hit by an exploit. Long password won't help you when there's an application exploit, which if you're using secure passwords, is the exploit you're likely to see.
I subscribe to oss-security which is quite useful in keeping abreast of things, but may be overkill for a home webserver.
Hear that woosh? That was the sarcasm going right over your head.
If you can't make an argument without making some stupid stereotypical nazi comment, you probably shouldn't be making the argument.
It's not that it's wrong to watch the government, it's wrong how they do it.
So you want us to write a story for you? Isn't this the point of you writing it?
So what you're saying is that you pulled some random stuff about Einstein out of your ass and are trying to use it as justification for your argument?
Having every major browser vendor issue a software update, is far from what i'd consider to be "working". Why don't we have proper CRL's?
This has been solved by distributed computing a long time ago, you simply get more than on worker to check the results and if anything looks fishy chuck away everything from that worker.
Not that this makes this any better of an idea.
He said "I don't mean that in the sense of photography as a hobby or a profession, but simply as a method for taking images" and you recommend an SLR? Seriously?
If you just want to snap pics, go for the lumix. If you want low light photography, I'd go for the s100.
Because they have better things to work on than someone else's code? It's not their problem, they don't care about virtualbox and rightly so.
No, there's absolutely no way this carries 40% of our telecom traffic. Maybe 40% of Northern Canada, but not 40% of Canada. Do you realize how much fiber there is near the border and how much data people push?
Similar here. I have a 15" dell that's a little thick that fits in (it's tight) with a 7d and lenses / misc gear quite well. Works well as a carry on bag, but I find it too big for a day pack. Day pack, I use separate bags.
Wait, godaddy doesn't suck already? I don't see how they could possibly get much worse.
There's a pretty simple example that proves you wrong, you even mentioned it in your post: Japan's warning system.
Here's a pretty good article about it: http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,2059780,00.html
In principle, I think this is a very good idea. I'm not American and I wish we (Canada) had something like this in place, I think it's stupid the US doesn't yet. Everyone here is raging about the privacy / spam concerns, but do you really think that'll end up being a problem? It'll be a one way push and they'll use it for emergency services (I hope). You don't see people turning on the old school TV emergency tone / message for political spam do you?
In today's world of instant communications, it seems silly to not have a way for the government to send out emergency notifications quickly.
