Windows Vista still receives security patches, which was released in 2007. Most computers of that age will install W7 fine, though you might want to bump the RAM if you want it to be enjoyable. XP was supported with patches for over a decade. Apple locks you into expensiev hardware and wants you to buy new every few years,
>Steam has a bit of a bargain bin but I suspect that a Playstation bargain bin at Walmart will do far better than the same bargain bin for PC games.
The Steam quarterly sales are huge, also the weekly Humble Bundle. I'm over 100 titles now, simply because a very large number of them cost me almost nothing. Also you can play games on decent settings for around $600 and have a computer you can do other things with too. $1200 is a damn fast computer.
>You think your ISP is going to give you static IPs for free just because they have an IPv6 pool to dive into?
Probably actually. It's way easier to manage that way. It also solves tons of problems. Assign a
>Can anyone who believes that it really isn't getting hotter explain why, if its not getting hotter all the world's glaciers and ice shields are simultaneously melting faster than at any time in geological history?
Carbon black. If you maintained the same level of CO2 in the atmosphere and increased the soot you would see a slight amount of atmospheric cooling but a much larger warm up in bright surfaces such as ice and snow. That is from the IPCC themselves. Somewhere close to half of black carbon sources are from fossil fuel sources. That said, the other half are from burning biomass and bio-fuels, which are considered carbon neutral sources, therefore the reduction of fossil sources and an increase of bio sources can still leave us in a situation that melts all the glacers.
Panels, panels are useless. Batteries and power storage is the question. Not very many is the answer.
There are many things that won't move on. Metallurgical coal for example. You'll drive up the price of other goods associated with the products made with it. That is ignoring that the power companies own many of the coal mines. You not only have to pay for the coal mine, but the loss of power generation directly.
TL;DR: Article is ignorant of how the coal industry works.
That's why many suggest the plea bargain should be abolished.
It's just as likely that many cases that this technology was used in where never brought to court but settled in a plea agreement so discovery never occurred.
No, the police never claimed if what they were doing was illegal or legal. THEY DIDN'T TELL THE COURT ABOUT IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.
What's even worse, until this case the lawyers didn't find out how the case got to that point.
This is as bad or worse then the parallel construction we hear about the FBI/NSA doing. You cannot defend against what you do not know exists.
But the police didn't use the 'Phind my Fon' app. They used a fucking microcell that intercepted signals from everybodys cellphone in the area. If this where only about intercepting signals from that one particular phone there would be no issue here.
Add to that, the average semi drives 125,000 miles per year, 10 times the average car driver.
>Since soda cans can be returned for 5 cents each at the grocery stores
Only if you pay that 5 cents to the store in the first place. In the majority of the states there is no can/bottle fee.
Larger modern business are very price selective on how they ship. But shipping costs alone are only one part of that cost algebra. It is generally far cheaper per pound to ship via rail, but for many products it is cheaper over all to use a just in time inventory system to reduce warehousing space. Quick turn around trucking fits in with JIT systems very well.
>Because they originally turned iMessage on.
Completely erase your iphone and set it back up.
Setting up iMessage is one of the first 'default' screens that you come to in the processes. As in put your user and pass here with a little skip option on the bottom of the screen. They didn't explicitly find the setting and turn it on. It presents itself in a manner that leads the user to believe that it must be turned on.
NAT is not a firewall. Lets repeat NAT is not a firewall.
User controlled functions such as UPNP make is even less of one.
NAT does prevent first time outside access, but nothing beyond that.
Look at this scenario.
You visit http://hack.ed/. It launches a flash exploit that gets admin privileges. As admin it launches a UPNP function to allow port 40,000 to your internal IP. The rest of the world now has access to your computer as if it were directly connected.
Now if your NAT also has UPNP turned off and/or also contains a firewall that prevents NEW connections to any computer behind it, yes it a NAT enabled firewall.
