Comment This is garbage that will just increase your bill (Score 1) 153

Count on it. You can't have it both ways. Every step you take to strip a company of revenue will just increase your bill. To bad few are smart enough to see it. Cable set top boxes use encryption and technology that is usually limited to a few types of set top boxes. Forcing cable to replace those systems will increase your bill. I don't think it will hold up in court since many industries have similar practices. Float the idea at whatever your job is of starting to give away what they have been charging for and see the response you get from the bean counters. I hope you don't get fired for suggesting it.

Doubtful on all counts. H1B visas take jobs from Americans. Its only good for the lucky visa holders and the corporations who don't have to pay citizens of the country where they reside. Its a joke to think muslims will rise up against us. They kill each other more often than they kill us.

Submission + - Ubiquiti may have disabled all third party router images

Revek writes: I recently bought three ubiquiti nanostationM2 to be installed at local parks in the area. On the first unit I upgraded the firmware to version 5.6.2 to see if it had any new functionally. After I had my look I proceeded to upgrade it to Openwrt in order to install scheduling so the WiFi wasn't available in the early morning hours. The flash to Openwrt went with out any errors but I discovered it wouldn't save settings. There was little or nothing about it on any forums and after connecting to it with a console I discovered they had modified uboot changing partition locations. They also disabled saving of the environment variables. After thirty days I still haven't seen a response from ubiquiti or really anyone. Efforts to restore it to any version of the stock firmware have failed also. My question to Slashdot Has Ubiquity abandoned open source completely?

Its funny. How do you think you take part. I've always taken part by reading. Lately when I look at a list of top scifi its all low rent soap opera in some vague dimensionless settings. In other words weather our new interlopers who confuse dragons and fairy's for scifi realize it. They have made the hugos irrelevant. Its amazing you think the main part of 'taking part' is worrying about some decrepit award. I've felt ignored for years by the awards. The crap that got voted in has mostly been crap. In truth to me it looks like the SJW has poisoned it to spite another diversity.

As soon as you start ignoring your supporters you start losing all integrity. Science fiction is all about ray guns and aliens. How could these idiots think it was ever any other way. Was it because star trek used the stripped guys to lash out at the stupidity racial differences? Maybe. But more than likely its this new need for many writers to tell the story of some lame social fantasy and call it Scifi.

I call the SJW 'Social Justice Whores'.
