"whoever in his right mind would want to listen to binary files loudly?"

About as many people who want to listen to source files, I imagine.

The majority of the population does NOT want to see this pass, yet it made it through the Senate with NO opposition?

I thought the government was for the people by the people. What a fucking joke.

No, it made it through the Judiciary Committee.

Then again, I don't have a lot of hope that the remainder of the Senate will do much better.

Comment I'm in the USAF... (Score 4, Interesting) 194

... at least once a month, I get an e-mail informing me that there's a commander's call, or some such event.

It never actually says this in the e-mail body, though. The actual date, time, and location, is in a single-slide Powerpoint file, attached to the e-mail.

Powerpoint isn't the problem, people's over-reliance on it is the problem.

Comment Irresponsible (Score 1) 356

Uh, wouldn't it be more responsible to maintain limited logs, but only for a reasonable period of time, and with the stipulation that they'll only be surrendered when ordered by a court? We already have plenty of ISPs out there that just don't care about the conduct of their users (I'm looking at you, HiNet), and half their assigned IP ranges are in a blacklist somewhere. But I guess being deliberately irresponsible just to annoy the MPAA/RIAA is okay by Slashdot.

Seriously, the last thing the Internet needs is another abuse haven ISP.

The first version always gets thrown away.
