I'm a democrat, I intend to vote several times in several different jurisdictions. I plan on cancelling out quite a few votes for whomever beats Rand Paul in the primaries.
"The newly published document shows how the agencies wanted to “exploit” app store servers – using them to launch so-called “man-in-the-middle” attacks to infect phones with the implants. A man-in-the-middle attack is a technique in which hackers place themselves between computers as they are communicating with each other; it is a tactic sometimes used by criminal hackers to defraud people. In this instance, the method would have allowed the surveillance agencies to modify the content of data packets passing between targeted smartphones and the app servers while an app was being downloaded or updated, inserting spyware that would be covertly sent to the phones."

Now, if only they could take care of the things they have in common before tackling the things they don't
Politics is all about points of difference, no matter how trivial, without those points of differences there would be no need for politics.
It had some REALLY ugly failure modes.
In a production server, I can see value in stepwise evacuating old drives and then swapping them for new larger drives only once the data is stable on the filesystem. Done right you could pull it off with zero downtime without opening a window where a single failure brings you down.
I'm using ZFS in production for now but I'm actively testing btrfs for that reason among others.
I spent a very, very long week with developers and network architects arguing about the subtle disrepencies of their layouts and software and how their software works. And eventually, I took actual measurements and showed that for far less money, using the simplest tools provided the faster solution at a tiny fraction of the complexity and cost when you _actually measured things_.
This has been a consistent lesson throughout my career. People theorize and postulate endlessly with complex analysys and essentially fraudulent testcases, and don't examine it in the real world.
Just. Measure. It.
extracting "settlements" from random people
Although there have been threats to do so, this isn't happening in Oz any day soon, the court specifically warned the MAFFIA not to use US style extortion letters. Any letters they send must be pre-approved by the court. If they do it now they WILL be held in contempt and possibly disbarred for abuse of process.
If you ever meet another person that is also a regular of MSNBC's audience and regular reader of bible-prophecy.com, MARRY them. Right away.
And if you meet such a person, I'll bet they're a Rand Paul supporter. Probably want a Rand Paul/Alex Jones ticket.
Or a just plain nutz sites like DailyKos, Lucianne, or the festering pit called DemocraticUnderground?
Here is the link to http://www.bible-prophecy.com/. Note the biggest headline.
You really want to go nutz for nutz with me?
You're thinking of the ZFS that goes through FUSE. There is also ZFS on Linux that runs as kernel modules like any other fs.
There's also btrfs.
Of course, neither of those needs the md driver at all, they have their own raid like systems.
How exactly would raising funds for his political campaign help him personally?
He can donate the money to his Rand PAC (http://www.randpac.com/) or just let it sit there for future elections. He becomes more influential by virtue of that money. He can use it to generate support for a bid for certain Senate committee positions. When you have money to distribute to other political purposes, you have the juice that creates power. Most important, he can do what his father did and just make personal money by selling his campaign donor mailing list.
Did you know even retired politicians can keep their campaign fundraising going? They can keep fundraising even after retired and can use that money for other politicians political purposes.
There are PODCASTS with larger audiences than MSNBC, dude.
Now that you mention it, Rand Paul's filibuster made it to MSNBC, too.
He got his facetime on the TV and that's all that matters.
[note: Rand Paul's filibuster is actually the lead story on bible-prophecy.com right now]
