I walked away from crunchy rule systems years ago. Go Fudge go!
You can't fly. You can't for, but you can jump off a skyscraper and flap your arms.
Does anybody actually buy apps for Metro?
If backwards compatibility is so damned important to Microsoft, why does IE11 ignore IE7 compatibility mode settings?
There is still some faxing going on at our office, but the ubiquitousness of easy-to-use scanners means more and more of the documents that we used faxes for are just being sent via email. We won a contract a few years ago and literally had the hundred page document faxed to us, and then we signed and witnessed the back sheet and sent it back via fax. The last amendment was done via email. When even the lawyers are walking away from fax machines, it is definitely a technology on the wane.
Well, there have been a whole host of attacks associated with vulnerable versions of Flash and Java that could at least cripple a profile. I ran up against one of them around 2010. One of the staff at one of our remote locations suddenly had all their files supposedly disappear, desktop wiped out and the like, and a notification about a ransom if they wanted the files back. The user had no admin privileges, so I checked, and sure enough, the other profiles were untouched. What had happened is the auto updater for the workstation had failed.
Now, while it's true that the operating system itself was not compromised, and no other systems or users on the network were compromised, certainly there was enough control to potentially view confidential data on shared drives. While this was relatively unsophisticated ransomware, it did teach me than merely obsessing about privilege escalation does not lead to a secure system. User profiles and directories can still potentially be vulnerable even if the malware can't root the system.
If you can ingest it... yes.
Silly bastards! You thought Unlimited meant Unlimited... When what it really meant was "This is an awfully good way to part some gullible fuckwit and his cash."
God bless America, where sociopaths not only succeed, but have in fact become masters of all they survey. Soon will be thanking them for harvesting our organs.
Thanks to the Supreme Court of the United States, one does not have to physically sign any agreement to be bound by it. Use alone, such as putting a commercially-produced DVD in a DVD player, is sufficient for you to have agreed to the terms.
The copyright part of the GPLv2 doesn't allow that remedy, but the GPL isn't just a statement of copyright, but is also a license, and the license part of the GPLv2, which you agree to if you use GPL code, does specify what must happen if GPLv2 code is incorporated.
And if software companies are suddenly saying licenses aren't enforceable, then wow, we've entered a brand new age.
Indeed. I fail to see why GPL software is being picked on here. You lift someone else's copyrighted code without permission and without abiding by any licensing agreements, you are SOL if you get busted.
I have an uncle who is an extremely bright man... and insufferably arrogant and lazy. It's as if he has come to believe his high IQ is an end unto itself, and that somehow the universe was supposed to just bow down and hand him everything on a silver platter. He's an alcoholic who was abusive to his wife and kids (until she finally got up and left). But for years all I'd hear from my aunt was how awfully bright and tortured he was, and if you pointed out he'd barely made a living for years, you got some nonsense about him being a member of Mensa thrown in your face.
I have no idea what my IQ is, never really cared. Good at some things, struggle with others, but the one thing I'm not is a complete dick. I'll take happiness and a measure of success over some number on a piece of paper any day.
Another Shiva Ayyadurai, except with even fewer verifiable accomplishments.
Don't vote for this kind of garbage with your money.
And nobody has...
Whatever happens with the Surface Pro series (and I'd say the odds are stacked against it), RT is dead in the water. It's sitting in the same dark, dank purgatory that the Blackberry Playbook is, and largely for the same reasons.
You do have actual evidence of this, right? I mean, you wouldn't simply be lying to bolster *your* agenda.
