Or require that the entity purchasing an asset out of bankruptcy also inherits the contracts binding that asset. If my landlord goes bankrupt I don't get to say "Woo! Free house!" and ignore the terms of my contract with the landlord, why should whoever takes over after the landlord not be bound by the terms of the contract either?
you could not use a filesystem to safely store a database file
You can store the database file there, just don't let the power go out mid operation or make a copy of an active database's file(s) and expect it to work.
In other words, exactly like how it is now.
If they're right, this has the effect of stabilizing prices
If they're wrong? Well tgen, to co-opt the Keynesians: they can stay irrational for as long as they can stay solvent, and bailouts will just keep that going.
If you're a bad person we'll reconstruct an identical clone of you and imprison it as your punishment.
time to cut full time down to 32-30 hours a week with a longer team goal of say 20 hours
Companies: Sure thing, guys! Here, take a paycut of 60% to go with that! Oh, and we're going to have to have you come in for unpaid overtime, and if you thought you were going to work two jobs to make up the difference, you've got another think coming because we're going to randomly call you in after hours and rescramble the shifts every month.
How many times do you want to get paid for serving the same stupid meals
The restaurant paid for the flour they used to make your pasta. Now the FIAA is coming after you because you enjoyed the pasta made from their flour but you did not pay them for the right to enjoy their flour. Never mind that you paid the guy who paid for the flour, you're a flour-stealing thief because they say so.
you mean like thinking HTTPS stops anyone from seeing the URL you just visited so they can view it for themselves?
Thanks to SNI and IPv4 forcing everyone to host multiple sites on one address (but I repeat myself) SSL does now leak the hostname you are attempting to request during the handshake so the server can select a certificate.
We'll have the automated road-laying behemoth knocking down people's houses and paving over their remains just in time for the Vogon automated hyperspace bypass extrusion ship to swing by our arm of the galaxy.
Someone on the design team has obviously watched people try to find the pointer.
(I have no idea if there are any rules on when an "ss" can't be replaced by a ÃY)
Rule 1: When used on slashdot
Those are metric stormtroopers
10 years ago? Someone didn't get the memo.
Eh, why take a chance?
Because it would cost a few hundred billion dollars and no investor is going to take that chance when it's clear that AT&T and Comcast can and will undercut you once you've gotten your installation complete (see their behavior in Google's markets).
There is absolutely no way I'd support charges like this for anyone that deletes anything before they've been ordered to provide it to the court. Nobody is psychic and the law should not require psychic powers.
Afterwards? Yeah, absolutely destruction of evidence assuming the government can prove that he had what they're claiming he deleted.
