I disagree with all, and Tesla didn't get a good shake at all, IMHO. Tesla's not god, but they didn't get a fair shake.
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).
And there's a future network to avoid like the plague. Here's a violent, nasty hustler, bare on facts (see his madness with the Tesla for a good example), and at most a boor and bore. Oh, right......
Everyone wants growth, but there are limits. Sustainability helps increase them, but eventually, the limits will be found. No one wants to talk about population control, which is the smarter idea-- and is fought by our biological drives.
Ummm, no. Although this happens, an increasing amount of silage and dark waters have contaminated many crops, and not just in CA. Were we to actually PROCESS the silage in a way that stanches e.coli, salmonella, protozoa, and other contaminants ranging from aspergillus to non-fungals and unknowns, a vast amount of efficiencies increase.
The best idea, IMHO, is to deploy widely sustainable practices that involve the highly fluctuating variables of rain, market fluctuations, and yields. Too much of this revolves around dice-rolling techniques, and "I'm gonna be rich if I plant a few orchards" mentality. No one likes the edicts of public policy, but simple planning goes a long way towards sustainability.
Our current opaque public policy mechanisms prohibit this.
They're *your* assets, CDs, pics, but also the personal bits about your identity. What's your identity worth?
Tangible vs intangible is a huge difference. Ten years is a stiff deterrent and doesn't really fit either crime, depending on the value. In the case of say, check/cheque fraud, forgery for gain, converting property/conversion, these have a directly cost that can be calculated and audited. Intangibles, the crux of various publishers, is more difficult to do.
Although stealing is horrendous, the RIAA/MPAA/publisher's actual injuries/damages aren't what they claim them to be, IMHO. Ten years is too much.
I'd say: yes, do it, with your children's consent. No consent? Don't do it. Tell them at 16, they have to make a choice, and tell them what it means to them. Remember that twenty years in the future, many parts of the world will mature. Which one matures for them means having choices.
If you had a valid, uncompromised version of firmware, and were able to substitute it, and look at the streams, you could compare one stream to the other, uncompromised vs suspect. At some point, to do its work, the suspect firmware has to cough something different, be it an altered MBR, or something else to allow it to do its job. Otherwise, its sits in firmware forever doing nothing. There needs to be a routine, an exercise, comparing known vs unknown to assess what it does to a stream, or to infect/root its host.
I get the feeling that the NSA attack is likely focused on a fairly select few, otherwise the C&C traffic would be heavy enough to otherwise detect. A rooted machine may stay asleep for a long time, perhaps forever, but at some point, it has to wake up. Change your IP address to a CIDR block in Iraq and see if your router suddenly lights up.
Summary: to do its work, it has to either talk to something or infect/root the kernel or something the kernel uses a lot, otherwise, it's useless except as a local attack. It has to assert itself, and using known vs unknown analysis is perhaps the only real way of making it show its footprints in the snow.
You have a lot of rational paranoia here. Tin foil or no, I often wonder if some of the VPN services are just honeypots.
There's always spinning up free instances in Azure or another host like AWS, and trying your hand there; at least the circuits would be somewhat secure. But if you're doing something at a monitored host and its record list is tracked, your IP access would at least be tracked. You might need several of these in a tawdry, highly latent chain to make things tough. That said, for some that need this, diligence might pay off. For others using such circuits for evil, I wish them failure.
That's their retail value. If you're suing Anthem in a class action because of their breach, the value will be astoundingly different.
A nice VPN is a great idea. The very idea that your privacy is worth such a pittance is really insulting.
Not broken. It's an improvement. Devices needed organization. It's not a perfect solution. Nothing is.
Slow down. We disagree on all your points.
First, use grub2 to set alternate boots. Not tough.
Second, use rsyslog or install syslog-ng to push out the logs to a log server so you can see why it goes down.
Third, BIOS is still the longest part of my boots; not sure what you're using.
Fourth, the file format you loathe is easy pushed back to half-ASCII if you simply must; you can ask chron to push it for you regularly, if you're really anal.
As far as stability is concerned, mine are just fine, thanks, doing their jobs nicely. This
Oh, sure. Are you sure it wasn't the fact that all of the Sun engineers exited for greener pastures, and Oracle left the openness in a ditch? Took all of Schwartz's pile of open goodies and stepped on them like they were cockroaches?
C'mon. Say something real.
