And that was sworn in the trial testimony? Or did they say that everywhere except where they had to swear that was the truth?
your traffic wasn't interesting enough
How interesting is interesting enough? Interesting enough to spend $5 on? $0.05? GCHQ redirected the slashdot site for Belgacom users to their own servers, so slashdot readers are at least that interesting, and mass observation programs like PRISM make it cheaper and cheaper to watch you.
Linux's MD raid10 isn't the same as RAID 1+0, so I'm not entirely sure it would be affected by this.
Unless simply handling money doesn't result in your body absorbing enough cocaine
It's a safe bet that whoever rubbed the cocaine on the money in the first place likely has enough of it in them to be rubbing the metabolites on the money too.
Ad blockers would not have been necessary if we didn't have ad networks distributing malware.
The selection of index.html for URLs ending in "/" is handled server-side (that's how we can have index.php index.cfm, index.pl and so on).
Really, what was needed was for display-size to become a standardized request header so that the server can select a default based on the display size.
Especially when there's a perfectly cromulent form that swishes out from the side to let you edit any other bookmark when you "check" that tile.
Who cares about buying 51% of the stock when you can hire 100% of the employees away.
Chrome's new bookmark manager is definitely a poster child for "half-ass it then push it to the masses". It seems to be working hard to almost replicate the Windows 8.0 Metro interface that everyone loved down to the "checkmark a tile to open the menu".
if an app pretends to offer a service and then can't deliver, or provides data that leads to bad decisions
It's more than that. How about an app that offers the ability for a doctor to purge the record of a certain bad decision? How about a financial app that allows double bookkeeping, if someone was so inclined to hide their embezzlement? How about a default password of 12345, after all it's the user's responsibility to fix it?
There are plenty of ways to make apps that do the wrong thing, correctly.
Meanwhile a westlake will explain which felony exactly is committed by a person unable to pass on years of experience in the span of months, without the benefit of a degree/training in education.
Authoritarians, of both the "left" and "right" wings, love to use government force
Agreed, look no farther than reactions to the war on drugs. A local government banning Big Gulps because it's bad for you is government overreach into areas of your life and people should have the personal responsibility not to overuse, but we need to spend billions of dollars at the federal level to prevent people with no personal responsibility from smoking a plant they grew in their own backyard because it's bad for you.
I know I do.
Yeah, I can imagine you sitting there after a car wreck, horribly mangled, holding onto consciousness just so you can make sure that they take you to the best hospital. Wait! Is this ambulance fully accredited and received at least an A rating from Consumer Reports? No? Well, I'll just wait here for one that is.
Actually my suggestion was to let people decide whether or not to let GOG try to change it since not all users trust apps to change the firewall, not all firewalls allow apps to change it, and so on. Maybe for maximum paranoia there could be a setting that hides the uPNP option completely so nobody accidentally checks it.
Invitations are absolutely an awesome feature, but you know what would blow my socks off? If the GOG launcher handled all the bullshit firewall crap.
I still get games where the authors have failed to bother to document the port(s) their server uses or where they think it's awesome to have the server start up on a random port from 1024 to 65534. Usually 30 pages deep in the game forum there's a thread where you find posts like "i forwarded UDP 19228 and the server showed up on the browser for 30 seconds but nobody could connect and I couldn't get it to show up again after a restart". If, along with all the other brilliant work GOG has done to get the games working in current versions of windows, GOG's launcher popped up a window like steams cdkey window that said
Hosting a multiplayer game requires these ports:
TCP 12421, TCP 12422, UDP 20000-20400
[x] Use uPNP to request forwarding these ports on my firewall
[x] Do not show this again
[ OK ] [ Cancel ]
I think my socks loosened a bit just thinking about it.
