And they said all of those hours I spent practicing F-Zero were wasted!
This isn't about there being 'more' men than women in IT/Dev right now, it's about there always having been a WHOLE LOT more. Whether this will alleviate the issue is another debate, but to claim that there being ONE field in science which men don't dominate is reason to start making accommodations for men is completely missing the big picture.
Good thing clippy never got ahold of that stuff... I can see it now: Screen real estate and click blocking modal screen that says "Hello! You appear to be masturbating! Would you like me to a) order you a lube refill from amazon.com, b) give you a list of porn sites based on Alexa ratings, c) turn on your webcam, or d) enact your FREE TRIAL to e-harmony..."
On the off-chance that they were in cahoots, and this guy helped start an international currency, in large part, to make silk road a reality... he totally just won drug-dealing.
Hi, Qzukk, I am fine. You responded to a comment saying that you make better patent bots that actually talk like a human?. Do you plan on doing this in a way that would risk infringement on google's well-made copyrights?
Certainly this data is not going to be exempt from data usage charges, simply because it's a gubmint program... i wonder how much it actually consumes? Also, if it's running in the background constantly, using data when the data connection is not in use, what are the battery life implications? How identifiable is this data going to be? Would there be a way to surreptitiously prioritize over other data?
This is why BestBuy was a total nerdocalypse at midnight when I drove by it last night.
I think that this 'kill-switch' is more likely to be used in individual cases of social unrest rather than for long-term disabling of the internet where a 'rounding up of equipment' scenario would be played out. I'm thinking more about large-scale, short-term social unrest rather than long-term censorship.
For the kill-switch scenario, I imagine that jamming, much like with any other wireless signal, would be the best way to kill a mesh network.
Note that I asked a question regarding a class of solutions, and did not propose a solution.
Mesh networks are peer-to-peer wireless networks that don't have ISPs, or any other centralized network. They are only good for communication within the network, and anywhere where there might be a gateway to, theoretically.
Not ever really having considered this scenario before, I may be missing some pitfalls that are obvious to other people, but it seems like a consumer-level mesh network might be a good solution to a scenario where they are actually able to develop an internet kill switch, especially in cities, where the space between nodes would (hopefully) be small. I know, at least at the beginning, the OLPC project was using something. Would that be viable? What other technologies are worth pursuing in this vein, that are available right now?
Do the ingredients here have non-food plant or animal sources? Are they actually made of completely synthetic chemicals? If not, then how is this considered *not food* as opposed to *extremely processed,* food fortified with synthetic vitamins, with most food-like characteristics stripped from it? I don't get it.

On MacOS there's a setting, "Allow Apps Downloaded from", under the security and privacy section of the control panel that controls this behavior. If I have that set to download from anywhere, it should download from anywhere.
Honestly now, do you really think that the NSA is operating from IP addresses that can be tied to us government domain names?
Actually, I never went to college. I'm a self-taught software engineer.
