I didn't read the article either but doesn't this kind of imply that there was more than one player because it was poker? So assuming 5 people, 4 getting fleeced and 8 hands. thats 4*8 so 32 million, or 1 mil per person per hand. Not 4 mil per hand? Not that 1 mil isn't a lot of fucking money to lose of course. Just checking the facts.

I just switched from Verizon to Tracphone. They have agreements with all of the providers so they use the same coverage or better as Verizon. When hurricane Sandy came through I didn't have a single issue making any calls.

I bought a phone from them that gives you triple minutes, and then bought the largest block of minutes they had (1500 @ $200) so I have 4500 minutes, text messages are 0.3 per message (MMS is charged differently).

Also, I got the Samsung S390G, I don't think I would recommend that as a good phone. It has various user interface issues, including the space bar, when pressed in the middle automatically adding a period. And a limit of 200 texts on the phone before you have to start deleting them, and no way to archive them off the phone unless you want to move them to the sim card 30 at a time.

I thought the model A and B came out at the same time? Did the B come out first for the enthusiasts to fund the reduced model. (I know the stated goal of the A is for education) whereas the goal for the B would presumably be for hackers. That being said I am actually borrowing a friends RPi to see about it's use as a serial console and I am not disappointed.

Why not? Term limits are 2 consecutive terms. He's been out of office, and so is quite eligible once again.

I can't say what version of the DSM we are using, however, these were synology boxes purchased in the past 6 months.

As far as the email feature, it is consistent across versions. We opened a case with synology and they said that this is the expected behavior at this time. There are unsupported hacks that involve logging in to console and modifying it. But in the future they plan to correct this.

Am I the only one that finds the Synology GUI the worst piece of crap ever? Maybe the experience is tainted by the fact that I always work with them over an RDP connection, but it loads a huge freakin image, I have to drag and click stuff with terrible responsiveness. Sometimes I have to click twice, its always laggy and the UI never fits the resolution I'm working with.

That being said, it has a ridiculous flaw in its email implementation that conflicts with the CRM software my company uses, it always sends the email FROM the same address it is sending TO, really... how hard is that to be user configurable and why would you make your TO your FROM, isn't that just a red flag for spam

The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, "I've got responsibilities."
