534 is a red, rounded corner box containing a green rectangle with a blue blob inside. Which makes it rather pungent than gingery.
I'm trying to get them to block-list all of Nigeria off the Webmail. With 120000 users we get about a couple compromised accounts each month, which I think is actually good. And 99% of the time it's from a 41.xxx address.
Chocolate deficits, whereby farmers produce less cocoa than the world eats, are becoming the norm. Already, we are in the midst of what could be the longest streak of consecutive chocolate deficits in more than 50 years. It also looks like deficits aren't just carrying over from year-to-year—the industry expects them to grow. Last year, the world ate roughly 70,000 metric tons more cocoa than it produced.
So last year we imported 70 000 tons of cocoa from... outside Earth ? Or are there long-term stocks of cocoa somewhere ? Because if the latter, then getting rid of those stocks year after year and moving to a tighter production chain makes a lot of sense, and fits in the trend of decreasing transaction costs. It could also be a sign that producers expect their cocoa products to sell less well in the future, or raw cocoa to become cheaper. In any case, the claims in TFA make little sense.
A well configured server will behave this way on the *submission* port (587) but if the MX port (25) were configured this way then you would be blocking a lot of legitimate email from old servers on the internet that do not support STARTTLS
That's what we do here on the big-gov't email servers. Filtering for non-auth'd relays curbs spam quite cheaply. We already have an answer for ISPs who'd complain about rejection: "Tough."
Yes, like someone who loses the right to sell you bottled water because you are entitled to drinkable tap water (for a very low price).
No one is entitled to drinkable tap water. When that ressource comes short, everyone gets rationed. And if you won't pay the bills the tap gets cut off. In fact it's ubiquitous in our countries because it's both cheap and vital to so many. But getting there was, actually, a capitalist initiative: the work of persistent entrepreneurs. So yeah, choosing this example undermines your argument.
Granting everyone a "right to" internet access won't make Internet available to everyone. Developping technical solutions and financing their implementation to allow widespread, cheaper access to the Internet will. Just like with access to water.
In July, the Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority unanimously approved $18.25 million worth of tax incentives to keep the ark park afloat. The funds are from a state program that allows eligible tourism attractions a rebate of as much as 25 percent of the investment in the project. Since then, the Ark Park's employment application has became public: "Nestled among the requirements for all job applicants were three troubling obligatory documents: 'Salvation testimony,' 'Creation belief statement,' and a 'Confirmation of your agreement with the AiG statement of faith.' (AiG is Answers in Genesis, Ham's ministry and Ark Encounter's parent company.)"
That caused the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet to halt its issuance of tax incentives for the ark park. Bob Stewart, secretary of the cabinet, wrote to Ham that "the Commonwealth does not provide incentives to any company that discriminates on the basis of religion and we will not make any exception for Ark Encounter, LLC." Before funding could proceed, Stewart explained, "the Commonwealth must have the express written assurance from Ark Encounter, LLC that it will not discriminate in any way on the basis of religion in hiring." The ark park has not yet sunk. It is "still pending before the authority" and a date has not yet been set for the meeting where final approval will be considered.
The Long Now Foundation has been covering this issue pretty well, too, with its 'Manual for Civilisation project'. They actually built a place with airtight shelves and started stockpiling actual books, which beats piling PDF files in a webserver anyday in long-term storage and techno-breakup resilience. They even store spores and seeds of all kinds of useful plants, and have a project for preserving animal DNA & eggs too.
'They're going after people who are really not criminals,' said David Smith, a former federal prosecutor who is now a forfeiture expert and lawyer in Virginia. 'They're middle-class citizens who have never had any trouble with the law.'" The article describes several specific cases, all of which are beyond egregious and are in fact entirely unconstitutional. The Bill of Rights is very clear about this: The federal government cannot take private property without just compensation."
This was recently covered by The Daily Show on Comedy Central.
When criminality problems are being made fun of in comedic talk shows, you know your government has a big denial issue.
