I appear to be in the market for a new KVM as my current one has all but stopped working. Any recommendations? Minimum 4 outputs. *Must* do VGA. My current one has mini-DIN for keyboard and mouse, which has sort of worked some of the time with USB-PS2 converters. I could probably go for a full USB only one, but I'd need to get new cables.
You approach closer and close to the "absolute truth", but never get there, and every pi microns there is an e chance that there will be a step function and the whole convergence has to start again.
And then the cylons show up (;-))
Short of that, then the next best thing is to create a controversy. Since it is a creative work, shouldn't the controversy be copyrighted? Or even better . . . patented to protect the idea! Or maybe the observations underlying scientific advancement should be made privately owned, or subject to a government auction. I wouldn't have expected anyone to take these suggestions seriously twenty years ago. But today? Who knows?
(Apologies in advance for my poor code-fu here.)

Anyone else see this as an attempt to scare users into upgrades directly from the desktop?
Yes, we all knew this day would be upon us, but surely we didn't see M$ being so downright aggressive, did we?
Ultimately, what is everyone's opinion on this effort and its' ultimate affect to their usage of the admittedly antiquated OS?
I for one, will still be chugging along on a few systems until the system finally just Dies on me.
Any theories on actual support and afterlife cycle predictions? Anyone still patching together their Win98 systems? Win3.11? What duties have they been relegated to and why? What plans does everyone have in the Upgrade department? Are you waiting for anything specific from M$ before taking the Win8.1 plunge, or planning on holding onto your Win7 systems 'till they pry the code from its cold, dead drive?"

Yep, but I chuckle far to often.
I suspect, more like 1 in 10 CEOs, managers, politicians, clergy, judges
We do have IMO the most S&T/R&D dumb judiciaries existentially possible for this century (I hope). BTW: Thanks for that Dick, George, GOP-TP and plutocrats.
The difference is that the repo company is using your information commercially, rather similarly to the photographic case, and you're required by law to display your license plate. The body requiring you to do the displaying has a duty of confidentiality toward you, and. for example, may be failing in it by not restricting what commercial entities do with the information.
It's technically a "vexed problem", but not necessarily an insoluble one.
Making it even harder is the question of scale. As Joseph Stalin once said, "quantity has a quality all it's own", a problem the courts have not been very forward in addressing.
Thinking about mostly legalistic issues, although this is really a public policy question. Our lawgivers haven't been terribly forward in addressing those, you understand!
Generally, a business, such as a repo company, can retain your information during the period in which you're doing business with them. If I were to consent to being scanned, then they could keep the scan only so long as it takes to see if I'm on the list of cars to be repossessed.
Since I haven't consented to the collection of "personal information" ("personally identifying information" in the US), and that information is a regulated government-issued identifier, then there's a case to be made that the repo company variously
- * isn't entitled to the information
- * requires a licence to use it under controlled circumstances
- * is entitled only to compare it to a list. or
- * is entitled to retain it only until it has been compared.
Similar logic applies to facial recognition: the right to photograph is stronger, but the right to retain is weaker.
Krita is is both a community project development by volunteers and a commercial project supported by KO GmbH. The Krita Foundation supports the non-commercial development of Krita. Commercial support is offered by KO GmbH.
My experience has been that software that is both supported by volunteers and commercially supported suffers from conflict of interest. Limitations can be arranged that push people toward paying.
