The TFS gives away the "criminal" practices - "polygraph-beating techniques, which are said to include controlled breathing, muscle tensing, tongue biting and mental arithmetic. " - so now they will come after
And maybe, commenters who quote TFS...
Fortunately when the sit me down for interrogation, now I know all that is needed is byte the tongue for not giving away the ID numbers of my fellow
"OTOH if you have your ducks in a row, then the NSA is totally confounded" - I would agree with that part. Encrypting is like going under the lights and bragging "here, I am here! hahahah" So - caring encrypting for little is worse than doing nothing. Doing it wrongly is still worse. Drawing the line between what is "little" and what one should really care about is hard. Encrypting the right way is harder still -- the option of being a sitting duck in a long row is very appealing.
(and yes, indeed, the NSA is not the only problem - *they* are just out there. And I am just a duck with a lot of brownian motion)
Which part of "This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane." you didn't get?
Is not it clear that the 12% off-griders are just rounding errors?
This is the 3 or 4th
"They have a detailed file about me, and I could not care less about them"
After our move, I started looking for cartridges, but bizarrely, I couldn't find the correct numbered ones, although I did find equivalent ones that would fit our model of printer. Some further research revealed that these would not work in our UK purchased printer, because like DVD players, the printer was region coded. I would have to contact HP and hope I found a representative who would understand the situation, (undoubtedly spending ages on the phone) as not many of them do and get it reset to the new region. Unfortunately, I had already discarded the cartridges so I could not print off any initial printer config pages for them to use to give me a new region code.
Fortunately, I've avoided the headache that this person went through 3 years ago I've ended up ordering much cheaper cartridges from the UK and several refill kits. I had no idea HP did this sort of sneaky, underhand tactic, and all it has achieved is that I'll probably never buy another HP product again. It seems there's no obvious benefit to consumers in HP doing this, other than it prevents them buying cheaper inks and therefore maximising profits, so what do the Slashdot community think of printer regionalisation?"
Hotbot - at the time, it was the one one could configure the most to try and tune the search. it grew up within Lycos and at the times of the first dot com buble also had a webmail aggregate, and other services.
as will Java, the new Cobol. So what?

Just check the graphs here - Nokia is but a walking corpse by now:
But in this case one can't know if the moderators took the O.P. seriously or not - I'd bet that some of them did.
