What she probably said was "I want a server that isn't subject to legally mandated retention or public records requests". The IT person then responded with "Sure ma'am" like you suggest.
The fact that doing this also makes security hard is just a side effect. The security problem didn't happen because she told someone to make it secure without supervising them closely, the security problem happened because she decided she'd rather not be subject to the rules, and not being subject to the rules automatically comes with bad security unless you're really careful.

Note that the goal is not to drag successful groups down, it's to bring the disadvantaged ones up. So there would be little point doing that study, i.e. looking for a problem where none exists.
Then why did they include whites?
He can't sue HR, because HR is not going to be dumb enough to send him a rejection letter saying "we won't hire you because you were accused of rape". They're just going to reject him without giving him a reason. There's no way he could prove that this particular rejection happened because of the false accusation.
The NSA is funded by taxes, which are extracted from us at the point of a gun, and could never have done what it did without the use of government force. AshleyMadison was funded by voluntary transactions.
Some of it is because the people digitizing the books are just clueless.
There have been several cases where I specifically looked for a high resolution scan of a book from archive.org and did not get the Project Gutenberg one, because the Project Gutenberg one either did not include illustrations or included them in very low resolution. PG could include high res illustrations--they just don't, and in fact have guidelines which tell you to digitize the images at a resolution which is ridiculously low for today's retina tablets.
"How many people speak this as a first language" is not the same thing as "how many people speak this".
I don't believe for one moment that the 3DS is only popular because of NES-era intellectual property (although it certainly helps), and the 3DS is clearly most of what's keeping them afloat.
I've never heard of an open source license that allows you to release two versions and only give away the source for one of the versions, and I don't think that satisfies any common definition of open source anyway.
Either you aren't required to release the source, in which case the free version wasn't released to satisfy the license, or you are required to release the source, and the free version still doesn't satisfy the license because you need to give the source of all the versions you release. There may be a case where you only have to release the source for the part that isn't yours, but that still wouldn't lead to a broken free version just to satisfy the license--they'd just release the source that they received without modifying it at all.
Has anyone created a list of all the things one needs to do to change Windows 10 settings towards privacy?
(I know about the Reddit thread, which is full of fail because it tells you to use group policy editor, which does not exist in Home, leaves out items that are mentioned later in the comments, and doesn't describe exactly what each step does.)
According to https://www.microsoft.com/en-u... which is on Microsoft's site,
Can I go back to my previous version of Windows if I don't like Windows 10?
Yes, while we think you will love all the features of Windows 10, you will have one month after upgrading to revert back to the previous version of Windows on your device.
Microsoft created the requirement to have secure boot with Microsoft keys, knowing very well that the incentives created by that requirement would lead to companies producing motherboards that can only use that and nothing else. Microsoft would not be able to do things that create these incentives if they didn't have a monopoly.
Just because the OEMs can choose not to lock down the hardware doesn't mean that it's the OEMs' fault rather than Microsoft's; the incentives were created by Microsoft.
Remember back when Microsoft were simply creating volume license agreements that made it expensive for companies to ship computers with Linux? They could do it--it wasn't prohibited by contract, it was just more expensive. All Microsoft did was change the financial incentives. But that's enough that it should be considered Microsoft's fault.
He's not going to get a public trial because an actual public trial would involve him justifying his acts as whistleblowing. This justification would necessarily involve the content of the information he released. The government isn't going to allow that, both for bureaucratic reasons (it's still classified information even though it was released to the public, so they have to classify the trial), and for the practical reasons that 1) if they can classify it, there's much less chance that the public will hear him and sympathize with him, and 2) it makes it a lot harder for him to defend himself.
Prominent world politicians urge adoption of new changes to the C++ standard concerning private inheritance and templates.
What this is trying to do is imply that because they have technical expertise in how dangerous AI-controlled weapons are, that technical expertise makes them experts about political decisions concerning weapons. It doesn't, and there is no more reason to pay attention to them than to the average guy in the street (who understands that some weapons are dangerous, and may have opinions on their use, but certainly doesn't get a national press release about it).
Nothing is finished until the paperwork is done.
