When the physical security is breached, the customers at that one store with the rogue employee/thief is affected. When the records are online, you can have all the customers at many/all the stores are affected by a single breach.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Then you don't deal with really large data with archival needs.
When someone is coming in through a VPN, you have no idea what their country of origin is, so how can you tell what license to show them?
No. Tall chairs exist. We used them all the time at our benches in the research labs. Part of the time you stand, part of the time you sit. Whichever is comfortable and works with your current activity.
You do realize, with a good number of games, you can register your 'owened' CD registration number with steam, and then have your game available on your steam account on any computer you are at, without needing to dig out that CD again, right?
The 'Hours Played' is a horrible metric. I've left Civ V running for days when I play in the evening, but don't bother quitting when I go to bed and work in the morning, then come home and play for an hour or two in the evening. 6 hours real play, 72 recorded as 'time played'. Same for other games.
>Why is capacitive touch so important
Because most resistive screens sucked, that's why. I worked with quite a number of them, and yeah, sometimes they worked with a thumbnail, and sometimes they didn't. Not acceptable for use.
We had these and a number of other tablets. If you wanted to actually get anything done, you used a stylus.
There were a ton of internet devices a decade ago. I had drawers full of literature from a lot of companies making new ones. We wanted to use some badly for at-home patients for a research study. We didn't buy any. Why? They were expensive, and they sucked. There are reasons tablets didn't take off 13 years ago, and it had absolutely nothing to due with market-research.
I could afford one. Most folks working in good tech jobs could.
I have no desire to wear one. I've got a smartphone when I want to do those types of things. I have no need to have a camera always recording things, and when I want to look at a screen, I generally want to be able to type into it, not speak into it. That just disturbs people near by. I'm more of the opinon of folks using mass transit in Japan. I don't want to hear your conversations. Even if it's a conversation with your tech.
Not many people wear those stupid gimicky watches that link to your smartphone either, although those are even cheaper. Just because something is tech doesn't mean people want it.
>The video starts with the patrons already attacking the Glasshole, so no, she started filming them after she was attacked.
Unless she easily clipped out the inital part of the filming that would have made her look bad.
It wasn't broke, so they fixed it.
No, you think you've found a possible security hole and you email your friend Mike and ask him to look over it and see what he thinks. The NSA intercepts the email, and immediatly sends you the security letter.
Yes, OpenBSD's main projects make things like carp, pf, etc. That seems to be the focus, and how most users use OpenBSD systems. I'm not sure how the Firefox thing is a worry to most folks who use and trust OpenBSD for their use. I've had a lot of OpenBSD machines over the years, but I don't think I've installed X Window more than a couple times.
Look to the post above.
Large stars have high interior pressure. Fusion rates are high. The stars burn out fast.
Small stars have much lower internal pressure. Fusion rates are low. The stars can last a long, long, long time.
There is a planet circling it. It's name is Z'ha'dum. Where the First One lives.
