Or corporate subsidies or allowing them to dodge taxes?
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).
Or, more likely, he never contacted anyone (he says he never got a response) and should have made another effort to contact them maybe by directly calling. I wouldn't be surprised if he just used some webmaster email address on the site that gets checked once in a blue moon or his email got caught in a spam filter. Either way, to escalate it by going to the press was a bit of a rash jump to make.
I agree that them responding by having him arrested was a petty act that showed more petulance than professionalism.
As a developer myself I understand the inertia fixing security holes could face, especially if they subcontracted all of it out and that would mean asking for bids, spending $, etc. That is no excuse though for just ignoring it. There is also little excuse for allowing a public facing DB to have SQL injection holes like this in this day and age. The proper coding standards for dealing with this should've been followed from the start.
Just accept that the gas tax isn't a god-given cash cow and either spend less on roads or look elsewhere for money.
Getting hard to sell those ads for more money eh? Pump all the data you want, I still won't buy your crap.
Welcome to America where killing our citizens is more important than saving their lives.
I have a cheaper system that involves a fan and a jacket.
She belongs in a center where she would be forced to attend therapy. Maybe there is still hope for her though I assume she is picking up her attitudes from her parents. The sooner she is separated from them the better probably.
Dickheads drive manuals too.
When oil drilling first started in PA there was a huge boom and bust. There is nothing special about fracking technology, it is only a matter of time before other countries get it going and gas shale deposits are not limited to the US. The price of gas could get pushed down below the cost of the drilling and processing and become a bust. It might also become cheap enough to process natural gas as a substitute for oil in things like plastics depressing oil prices too.
It is ok, we have a backup planet.
Good luck with that. Unlike diamonds natural gas isn't exactly rare.
I'd rather read nonfiction. Real history is more interesting IMHO.
Here we report on angiosperm-like pollen and Afropollis from the Anisian (Middle Triassic, 247.2–242.0 Ma) of a mid-latitudinal site in Northern Switzerland. Small monosulcate pollen grains with typical reticulate (semitectate) sculpture, columellate structure of the sexine and thin nexine show close similarities to early angiosperm pollen known from the Early Cretaceous.
I think this sprained my brain.
Remember who created this program in the first place? The no-entry list has become a popularity list and it just gets longer.
I've already taken that into account with my death plan, whore-house heart attack.
