This is computer neophytes telling IT how things work.
Like the pigs running the farm. Like the inmates running the asylum.
Like councillors up to their ears in that Microsoft bribe money.
I've wondered several times to myself if this was possible. I figured no, since the torrent clients / seeds participate in an ACK system of sorts (or, so I've reasoned), so the sending clients would not get a return and so wouldn't keep bothering. But then, this *IS* possible to a torrent client which clicks on a carefully formed link and always was. Ever click on a link that has 40,000+ peers and/or seeds on it?
I think it all depends on whether you are the kind of person that requires human technical support or not. A lot of people do.
Getting a malware attachment by email has NOTHING AT ALL to do with their server. If someone had hacked their server and was doing it, then fine... but the two issues do not go hand in hand in any way.
The truth is what people want, even now, is a version of XP that installs nicely on new hardware. And is better at doing useful things - like file copies that don't lock up the computer despite the CPU/s being nearly free.
Sometimes I think the governments are simply trying to spend themselves into the kind of debt that breaks the banking system. But that doesn't seem to be happening.
I'm afraid this is true, at the moment. Kolab has never been a workable or even working project, in my opinion. Which is really, really sad.
...ISPs do not care about file sharing much. People usually set a reasonable rate and download sporadically and through all times of the day. Most of these people don't want the data NOW RIGHT NOW and they aren't expecting live 4K video with zero stutter. Streaming content is a *BITCH* for ISPs because it's all lumped together at the same time of day - evening entertainment - and the customers want flawless video streaming at full rate in the highest resolutions possible. To multiple devices in the home, at the same time. And they do their best to convince the ISPs that they should support the home network and smart televisions, too (ISPs are having none of it, and for good reason).
They want it unlimited, as well. Free, if they could.
This really is a red herring. Streaming is what makes the Internet creak under the strain. It's essentially the worst possible, most expensive, most prone to issues way to distribute video to a wide market. Satellite broadcast is positively cheap, compared.
This is not true. Or it's only true if the drivers and game procedures are specifically optimised for DirectX.
Ehhhhhh...... Gnome has always had that "pretty but vacuous" look to it, kinda like one of my ex.
It wasn't so bad, overall... but they should have made the series two movies, at most. There was significant filler.
The thing is, governments don't want smaller local players. They don't like them for many reasons - one being that they have morals and usually won't just give law enforcement agencies whatever they want. Or play ball with lawmakers. Or give politicians ruinous amounts of money.
It's turtles all the way down.
Why should the providers shoulder this burden? They're not marketing, charging for, or making the content available. It's ridiculous. And invasive.
WTF can I not edit...
Plasma 5 and KDE5 are two different things.
