The final version contains no provision whatsoever for US citizens.
Are the "Jury of your peers" seriously that gullible that they feel they have to institute massive punitive damages on an individual?
Yes. Or perhaps just mean. Anyone who's been through high school knows there's no one more unforgiving than your peers.
The problem is in SMBv2 and SMBv1
A shame, really. And I suppose it'll only be a matter of time before they find a zero-day exploit for Super Mario Bros. v3...
As for shareware, what strategies do you use to convince management to allow the purchase of commonly used utilities? If an installation of WinZip reports thousands of uses, I think the software developer deserves a bit o' coin for it. When I told management that WinZip has a one-second per file previously opened timeout counter, they tried to implement a policy of wait for it, do something else, and come back later, rather than spend the money.
Also, some software is free for home and educational use only, like AVG Free. What do you when management ignores this?"
Although, I suppose the converse could be true if, say, Microsoft were to support H.264 with IE8, and then began using it on all of their sites. (But then they would be competing with their very own Silverlight, so scratch that.)
traveling from Tuscon to Phoenix in 30 minutes flat.
I believe it's Tucson, not Tuscon.
rolfwind was using Jesse Ventura's victory as 'proof' that Independents do stand a fighting chance, but that argument is flawed, since he most likely would have won no matter what party he was affiliated with. 99% of the time Independents do not win, no matter how much more 'wholesome' they may or may not be than the Democans or the Republicrats.
The IOActive research will probably never be released publicly: Many of these devices are already deployed and it would be too dangerous to make the bugs known.
Hopefully they've tested the security of the computers that are storing this data. Wouldn't it be ironic if the IOActive computers were hacked and criminals got a hold of their worm?
He could have been a Republican and won that election. He's Jesse Freakin' Ventura.
I suppose it's possible for the independent party to win in the future, provided they can find a famous enough celebrity to run... but I wouldn't bet my ever-shrinking stocks on it. No Independent Party candidate has been elected president since George Washington, and I don't expect that to change in the next few centuries.
Oh yeah, and Jesse turned out to be a pretty crappy governor.
