Connecting to a device and forwarding packets through it are two different things. It's sensible to have a policy that disallows most users from attempting to ssh to the router's management interface. Often they're on completely different VLANs. It can cause a problem however when the managed connection between the VLANs has an issue and people need to get in there to modify the router settings.

Oh boy, I can't wait for all of the compromises you have to make to get a system usable on a small touchscreen to be ported over to my mouse and keyboard equipped desktop. I hope they go all the way and remove keyboard support so I can hunt and peck with the mouse on an onscreen keyboard with crappy predictive text. Also, make sure every app defaults to fullscreen, because that's what I want on a 3840x2160 display. I also hope they do away with onscreen menus and make everything gigantic buttons because I hate efficient use of screen space.

None of the services listed are open source, so that is a red herring. Open source isn't even particularly important here, because your data isn't locked into any kind of a format - you can switch freely to any service at any time, and you have a complete copy of your data at all times. If you really need open source, there are options which require a server: SparkleShare works well for me, and I understand that OwnCloud has something that works decently as well.

My problem with the service is that it works poorly in a mixed-computing environment. It loses xattr between Mac and Windows (and probably Linux). It has some pretty bad behavior when faced with a filename that only differs due to case.

I was just arguing that this is pointless. When I traveled to Israel, I requested that my visa be stamped on a removable sheet of paper to be stapled into my passport. I did this because I didn't want evidence of a trip to Israel when one of my next stops was Malaysia. If someone is trying to get from Liberia to the US, they will do so with no evidence of recently having been in Liberia.

It's not as if there are huge numbers of flights to and from Liberia.

We knew what was going on when you ran your anti-IBM campaign, sometimes even positioning yourself as arguing on behalf of our community. It was a way to lend credence to IBM and MS arguments during the SCO issue. To state otherwise is deceptive, perhaps even self-deceptive.

Florian, you would not be devoting all of this text to explaining yourself if you didn't feel the need to paint your actions in a positive light. That comes from guilt, whether you admit it to yourself or not.

Go write your app, and if you actually get to make any money with it you can give thanks, because it will happen despite what you worked for previously. Keep a low profile otherwise because your credibility is well and truly blown and you can only make things worse. And maybe someday you can really move past this part of your life. But I am not holding out much hope.

There is no distinction between any AI program and some existent game.
