My mom got screwed from a Verizon hotspot. I don't know if they've changed the policy, but it used to be that you had to have a contract with it -- so they got stuck with it for 2 years when they only needed it for a couple of months. (I have no idea if she asked about it specifically and was lied to, or if she didn't specifically ask and they glossed over it.)
AT&T has a good network, but if they require contracts, it might be better to go through someone like Net10, which resells on AT&T's network, but is specifically month-to-month.
yup. it's like the church pastor who is caught having a gay affair, smoking meth, or committing adultery. a large number of his congregation will deny it, defend him, and attack the accuser. "slut, blackmailer, out destroy a good man because the devil" etc.
welcome to the human condition: too many tribal partisan morons with closed minds who don't want their precious, erroneous, beliefs challenged
right, got it, it's all make believe:
"there is no sexual harassment, rape, or abuse, and all cases of it can be ignored. because i found a retard on tumblr who takes things too far, that's why"
because there are many sexists and misogynists on slashdot, and in life
there is such a thing as false charges of rape. but actual rape greatly outnumbers false charges of rape
but hear it according to the prejudices of sexist people, such as many comments here, and the discussion is immediately about fake rape charges. there is no thought or consideration to the more likely possibility the girl was actually raped. because that possibility goes against their misogyny. they have to reinforce their hate. so all of the "she's faking it" information-free comments get voted up and discussed. without the slightest shred of actually looking into the case and possibly discovering that there is solid evidence of rape
many people, as the comments in this thread show, are prejudicial assholes and morons, and don't think before opening their blind ignorant mouths, to pass shallow judgment on situations they don't know, and don't try to know, just so they can preserve their ignorance, hate, and prejudice
it's a window onto the souls of some people around you, as you can see in many of the comments here, some people are hardcore shitbags
do you care that a website you don't visit has ads?
does it make you angry that a store in a strip mall 3 states away from you that you never visit, leaves their christmas tree lights up all year?
no, i know
they are very ancient though, the cambrian
makes you wonder if perhaps they are precambrian and they had some guests in their gut...
ok, i'll stop now
After more than 30 years experience of FPGAs, I can say with complete confidence, a well drawn schematic is worth 2GB of VHDL. But learn from DEC PDP11 schematics and not from British Standard compliant ones.
The problem started with allowing sites to serve executable code. it seems it will end with users having to block all executable code - short of nuking from high orbit, it is the only way to be safe.
In the case of Flash, nuking from high orbit is probably essential.
Disclaimer: My Government sells nukes.
so be ready to pay for the sites you like
resistant to heat, cold, vacuum, desiccation, radiation, pressure, toxins, etc.
you realize they could leave earth (ejecta from a sever impact) and colonize other planets
then you think... wait a second, maybe we're here because these guys colonized earth
