Torrents die if nobody seeds them. If I've got a few gigabytes of data that only ten people want, possibly years apart, torrents won't work.
Student writes inefficient code, learns how to optimize it using known techniques, it becomes faster. Film at 11.
Don't forget the special add-on modules to come up with a different spelling of your name each visit.
Great! Now all I have to do is compromise your user account, add some aliases to your
-config files and adhoc installed libraries are impossible to link to the application that actually needs it (given the fact that my time is scarce). Nightmare when upgrading, creating new instances or when pulling apart a system (for e.g. performance/HA).
-if an application uses resources, e.g. I/O, too much you want to know about it, point fingers and restrict its usage (and maybe give it its own). Nightmare when you want to find out 'what causes it to grind to a halt during Xmas'.
iotop. A VM only makes this problem harder.
-applications has 'resources' they should not have, because another application needed that 'resources'. Example: Qmail needed compiler and afterwards a cracked PHPMyadmin used that to compile malware.
chroot with linux-vserver enforcement.
I believe it's GAN-Lite. Not 100% sure.
Umm, the "fanatical" left is still complaining plenty. Just the mainstream (center-right) Democratic partisans have stopped, because they only care about what party is in power. Please don't confuse the two. (For details, just look at how much the Obama administration derides "professional leftists")
hundreds or thousands
Now you're either storing all the users' past passwords. Or maybe some clever hash of those passwords that preserves efficient computation of Levenshtein distance. However, given an oracle that computes Levenshtein distance, one could easily extract the password.
I'm more interested in a Duke Nukem Forever code review. Imagine how horrible it must be.
The fixed maximum number will not lead to a deflationary spiral as you think
as each coin is divisible by 99,999,999 , over time as value goes up, less amounts are used, the coins are continually split up.
And what, exactly, do you think deflation is?
How dare people chop of the trailing bits of an IPv6 address, thus rendering IPv6 privacy extensions ineffective.
While it is concerning that a U.S.-based lobby has this much power, the real issue is that nobody should be listening to the American Chamber of Commerce. If the EFF started writing EU legislation, we'd be jumping for joy.
It's back up to lifetime protection as of a few months ago.
Any chance you can provide some citations on this? I am honestly curious because this goes against everything I know about public domain, I could not find any references to the concept you refer to (except that Congress can re-copyright expired copyrights), and also no reference to the empire game issue you referred to. About the closest thing I found was RMS stating that there would be an empire game for GNU is his manifesto, but with no indication that it was in response to some lawsuits (and mentioned in parallel with X, lisp, text editors, etc.)
