After being diagnosed with hypertension I'm on a sodium reduced diet so I avoid all junk food and processed food because they are all loaded with salt. I only eat whole foods and even bake my own bread. Consequently, I wouldn't get any of the benefits you mentioned and I'm sure I'm not alone so I do take a multivitamin.
If you are making that backup for your own use to protect against damage to the media then no it is not stealing. If you give that copy to someone to use then yes it is stealing because that person is benefiting from the use of the software that you did not pay for.
Snowden took a copy of something he did not own for his own use. Don't get me wrong, I believe he did the right thing but it was stealing.
An EBCDIC website?
Awesome EBCDIC reference.
The true nerds will know what it is...the fanboi, pseudo nerds (the majority of Slashdot now it seems) will Google it and say they knew all along.
Don't like a permission? Don't install the app.
What about installing updates to an app I've already paid for?
I currently have a problem with an app that I paid for that has an update that adds a new permission for a feature that I have no intention of using. So if I want to fix the problem I have to accept the new permission.
If this was a $1 or $2 app I would just find an alternative app that didn't require these permissions but this app cost $15. I have quite a few expensive apps and if they all do this it's going to cost me a lot of money to replace them with no guarantee that the next app won't do the same thing.
I don't see this as an issue for free apps. If you don't want to pay for the apps you use then you have to accept some advertising and loss of privacy. Free app developers still have to pay the bills. My complaint is that if I pay for an app I should have some control over what access they have on my phone. And it is my phone after all.
Chuck Norris doesn't pronounce words...words pronounce him.
I was shocked that people would post in public that they are dishonest - and brag about it.
Cultivate virtue for a better life, and a better world.
Honesty is something you have when others are looking. Morality is something you have when no one is looking.
Consider for a moment the historical reality of Canada's leadership in the Iran hostage crisis in 79/80.
Canada had nothing to do with it. Ben Affleck saved the hostages.
Sounds like you've taken a little too much LDS.
It's LSD. Double dumbass on you!
You and your colourful metaphors.
Find a VOIP provider that has an IVR option and you could accomplish the same sort of thing. I use voip.ms.
I have the same number as a taxi company in an adjacent area code so I used to get a lot of calls for taxis when the bars close so I created a timed rule to forward to voicemail after midnight. I never thought of using the IVR for that but I may give it a try.
Yoda? Is that you?
And if you're not a ninja I have two better solutions:
1) Drink from a glass.
2) Drink from cans.
I've had a TekSavvy DSL line for 6 or 7 years now and in that time I've had two outages and one performance issue. The outages were resolved in under 6 hours and the performance issue in about 12 hours.
Their support people really know what they're talking about and although they follow a script, like any call centre, they actually understand and don't just read from it. And even though they don't officially support Linux they also don't run they other way when you mention it.
This idea of scientific units being multiplied together magically becoming unscientific intrigues me - please subscribe me to your newsletter.
Now I understand your problem. Your think the numbers were being multiplied which I agree would be stupid. I thought you knew that "/" means division or in this case "per" as in "how many dollars will it cost me per watt hour produced".
Trolls and people under 5 years of age might not know this.
He wasn't commenting on the veracity of the story. He was pointing out that it was anonymous and Tweet sized and wondering if that's how
