I think the real moral of the story is, not that it isn't his job but it's a job for a whole team. There should be an engineering team (testing updates, finding the issues and improvements etc) and a change/ops team who does the leg work when deploying these kinds of processes. One guy responsible for a big ass pile of servers and is also responsible for all of this other stuff is at least two full time jobs.
Sorry, I like SparkFun and all but this does look a lot like Fluke industrial design. Ok so the colour isn't EXACTLY the same shade of yellow, but if you removed the branding from it and asked somebody what brand it looks like they'll say Fluke assuming they've poked around the market any or are in the industry. Granted it would be cool of Fluke saying something like "OK This ONE time" since SparkFun is all about hobbyists who might eventually become Fluke customers. SparkFun should have thought of this before ordering a container full of them, pleading ignorance that your multimeter is DAMN CLOSE to somebody else's product and not expect trouble is dubious at best. It looks a lot like a Fluke 17b with out the buttons.
But the problem is you still thought there was an autism risk and it took you an extra 2 seconds to do it. This is the underlying issue. Andrew Wakefield published a fraudulent paper on the subject stating that vaccinations cause this and got a celebrity to basically endorse it because she (Jenny McCarthy) was looking for a reason why her child was autistic. If it wasn't for JMC being desperate to find an excuse that doesn't include any self blame this would never have gotten even a tiny fraction of the attention it has.
An effective slide show should not:
Be primary source of information
Exceed 7 words on 4 lines
Contain unrelated graphs and images
Discourage discussion of the slides contents
This is my example of an effective powerpoint slide. This slide while only containing 22 words should probably take a few minutes to talk about. A powerpoint of maybe 10 slides for me often ends up being about an hour long. I build in a degree of Q/A and questions directed to the audience to keep them engaged and interested in the content. A presentation should be a discussion and not a group reading exercise. Clearly these scientists are great at science, but terrible at sharing it if they can't use a slide show effectively.
IA Labs originally sued Nintendo for patent infringement in 2010, claiming the Mario maker's Wii controller and Wii Fit technology infringed on two separate IA Labs patents. Nintendo successfully defended itself as part of a court battle in 2012, also winning various fees related to the case.
IA Labs appealed the ruling, but an appellate court sided with Nintendo in June 2013. At this point, IA Labs was ordered to pay Nintendo additional fees, and when the company failed to do so, a sheriff's sale was commenced."

I've explained that I can go into Amazon and hit the password reset button and own this account. Worse of all what if this person has a credit card on the account? There's a lot of damage somebody can do with the account in that case. Yet after a lot of attempts to solve the problem Amazon still insists it's not their problem.
The email from Amazon.ca
Unfortunately, this is an issue that will need to be resolved by Google. We would normally be able to temporarily disable your account in order to sort out the email issues, as these issues can be caused by typos on another person's side. However, as this is not an email typo issue, we will not be able to resolve this issue ourselves. Samantha L
How would my fellow Slashdotters solve this issue? There must be some terms of service preventing me from resetting and closing the account. Since this is my email address does that mean it's my account and COULD just close it?"

Circle Circle Dot Dot now you have your cooties shot!
Now instead of Raffee they'll be listening to jingles and learning how to use the 3 Sea Shells.
Demolition Man's setting was too far south obviously.
“When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.” - John Basil Barnhill 1914
In 1914 who could have predicted the NSA? Today it would write “When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is the NSA. America is what you get when you have both"
When I was buying a new laptop hard drive I got a hybrid drive but not before some research. The 7200RPM Momentus XT mops the floor with their 5400rpm new generation of hybrid drive. The performance increase on their 5400rpm drives is insignificant, it was not even worth considering but I at least found stock of the Momentus XT which *IS* well worth considering and ordered TWO. I took into account cost, capacity and performance when choosing the drives. For the cost/performance the 5400rpm drives did not deliver but it had the capacity, the Momentus XT delivered on cost/performance and was only slightly lacking in capacity. Pure SSD drive only delivered on performance which in my case wasn't weighted enough in my process to justify. If the Momentus XT didn't exist I'd have just stuck with a 7200rpm drive.
So RIP Seagate's worth while mobile HDD's. Unless you've fixed the mediocre performance in your 5400rpm drives I'll either be doing full SSD or just buying somebody else's 7200rpm drive.
Which with BES 10 can use the BES Infrastructure with DEVICE SPECIFIC KEYS as an alternative to a VPN. Which BlackBerry's can also use [a VPN] with the BES as a second optional transport in-case the BES goes down. On top of both of these transports the device will function directly over Corporate WiFi cutting out the BES all together when you're on the local network.
So Activesync with it's SSL over SRP, so thats TWO layers of encryption being used. ActiveSync's SSL and the BlackBerry transport as a secure tunnel into your network.
Maybe he thinks Ye Olde Pub is an Asian restaurant. Noodles and seafood!
Yea I have no idea what they're complaining about. Instead of fighting Aereo maybe they could work with them instead? When you're broadcasting you have no idea who's watching what and what kind of exposure paying advertisers are getting. Aereo likely knows what channel you're watching and at what time, this seems like ENORMOUSLY valuable information to a broadcaster. If everybody setup a TV tuner in their apartment and streamed it to their device of choice then the broadcaster has no clue what kind of market penetration they're getting.
It's like cutting off your nose to spite the face.
Sorry, I meant to say they could setup shop just out side of the exclusion zone.
