the ./ post says "...if movie production houses charged a $15 monthly fee..." whereas the original post says "If movie producers charged a $15 monthly fee..." these are possibly two very different costs / month to the user. How would they regulate who gets what? I'm not saying this would actually happen as the production houses would probably never agree on who gets what percentage of your $15 (if it was a flat fee like netflix) and I don't believe they would let this fly as they make more than that from 2 people just going to one movie a month. If I had access to every movie ever made for $15/month I would never have to pay $50+ for me and the wife to go to the movies. Instead I could just take her out to dinner then bring her home to watch anything she wants :)

+ - CryptoSeal shuts down VPN service. NSA suspect.->

sl4shd0rk (755837) writes "CryptoSeal Privacy, a consumer VPN service, has apparently shuttered it's doors saying it has immediately zeroed it's crypto keys citing "it is impossible for us to continue offering the CryptoSeal Privacy consumer VPN product." the statement goes further with a warning: "For anyone operating a VPN, mail, or other communications provider in the US, we believe it would be prudent to evaluate whether a pen register order could be used to compel you to divulge SSL keys protecting message contents, and if so, to take appropriate action,". Sounds like another victim of FISA endorsed illegal NSA activity."

+ - A Live Map of Ongoing DDoS Attacks->

Submitted by Daniel_Stuckey
Daniel_Stuckey (2647775) writes "It's the Digital Attack Map, and it was produced in a collaborative effort by Google Ideas and Arbor Networks to raise awareness about distributed denial of service attacks. You know, those malicious digital attempts to choke, or shutdown websites by sending them volumes of traffic far too large for them to handle. The map "surfaces anonymous attack traffic data to let users explore historic trends and find reports of outages happening on a given day," as its about page explains. Created using attack data from Arbor’s "ATLAS® global threat intelligence system," this is the D.A.R.E. of DDoS—it's about the danger of having information streams cut off. Under the heading "DDoS Attacks Matter," Google and Arbor explain that "sites covering elections are brought down to influence their outcome, media sites are attacked to censor stories, and businesses are taken offline by competitors looking for a leg up.""

I just recently gave up on windows 7 and moved to linux (fedora) for my main work machine. It is running great on my laptop with none of the issues that Miguel mentioned (albiet his were a while ago) and runs all the tools I need to manage a 600+ site global WAN. (yes, even cisco CSM 4.2 runs in linux via wine with no real issues and about 3 minutes of prep before running the installer even under 64bit linux) I don't think i'll ever go back to windows for anything other than for my gaming rig at home :)
