You aren't allowed to hide registration info for any standard domain

.ru is not a standard enough domain I guess? It is enforced by law that the real name or any other details of a person registering the domain must not be public. I believe there are some other TLDs are like that too.

It wasn't clear from your post that you are using the 4K display at 30Hz, you only mentioned trying out the 39" one.

I was referring not to screen real-estate related problems, but specifically to the 30 Hz refresh rate, it's way too low even for desktop usage to be comfortable (and forget enjoying games).

Submission 24-hour Switch to IPv6-only Proposed for June 8th->

Roman Mamedov writes: "Often cited as one of the reasons of slow IPv6 uptake, is the lack of Internet resources and services that require IPv6 for operation or access. In other words, "why bother implementing IPv6, if every website is accessible on IPv4 anyways?" To do something about this, let's continue the trend set by the World IPv6 Day in 2011 and World IPv6 Launch in 2012, this year by World IPv6 Jump, turning off IPv4 on your websites and services for 24 hours!"

And how many ssh users actually check the key fingerprints and verify they match those stored on the remote host? Is that even possible in most circumstances?

Hello, have you ever used ssh? As in, at all? It raises a holy hell if the keys have been tampered with.

$ ssh hostname.tld
The RSA host key for hostname.tld has changed,
and the key for the corresponding IP address xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
is unknown. This could either mean that
DNS SPOOFING is happening or the IP address for the host
and its host key have changed at the same time.
Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
It is also possible that a host key has just been changed.
The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is
Please contact your system administrator.
Add correct host key in /home/username/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
Offending RSA key in /home/username/.ssh/known_hosts:76
RSA host key for hostname.tld has changed and you have requested strict checking.

Submission Austrian Man Raided For Running Tor Node Exit-> 5

An anonymous reader writes: From William, the man affected: "Yes, it happened to me now as well — Yesterday i got raided for someone sharing child pornography over one of my Tor exits.

I'm good so far, not in jail, but all my computers and hardware have been confiscated.

If convicted i could face up to 6 years in jail, of course i do not want that and i also want to try to set a legal base for running Tor exit nodes in Austria or even the EU.
