You mean like that stupidity of charging twice for the same shopping cart serial number when the final button is pressed twice? You get this shit when you let morons design it.
Someone must have gotten their units mixed up and used 4 inches.
Technically true. But there is at least one that is open enough that end-to-end network apps cannot be spied on beyond the IP header needed to deliver its traffic somewhere. Encrypted talk apps already exist. These are end points the proposal would also "require" be backdoored (not just the blob that runs the "telephone" part). These are the apps the evildoers WILL use (after a few of them do get caught).
The terrorists have already won.
With the open source, some people will "mess" with the system. They will have to sift out all the "noise". Of course they do fully understand this. So it will never be an open system. It might be a chip, but that will be so easily defeated with encrypted apps that don't use the traditional dialed number phone network.
Reread what I said very clearly. Apply logic. I never said I would accept it as open source. I only said that if it is not open source, I would oppose it.
If it turns out to be open source, I have the confidence that it would end up opposing itself by exposing its own absurdity directly. It is not a matter of whether I can disable it, or just not include it. It's not about the people without the ability to do this. What will become clear and obvious is that the evildoers the LEAs want to target will be able to disable it, or just not include it.
Actually, this *IS* what open source is about
Now reread my post once more and you should see by logic that I am saying I am fully opposed.
And what about the scammers that will be using this back door to control you phone and run up your bills. Is this the cost you are willing to pay, literally? How about just having the evildoers put in jail with less strict requirements on what the evidence needs to be
Otherwise I have to oppose the idea entirely.
Anyone know how big of an impact to the Moon could be a hazard to Earth (for example, from ejected material).
I might be the exception because one of my passwords is 27 characters and I have never needed to write it down. But most people do need to wrong down long meaningless strings of gibberish, especially if they many of them. Just like people know to find the car keys above the sun visor in a car, or under the rug at the house door, people know to look in or under the desk drawer to for the computer password.
Few people get a chance to sit at your PC, though. Network access is the greater risk, and that often has no password need because people just click on the link to the dancing squirrels and let their computer be taken over. We also need LESS use of passwords when connecting to things on our networks. Everything should be strong crypto authenticated, even inside private LANs.
This would be great if some program that would actually work were used. Instead, what we got was more of the same old crap in a new paint job. Some things go down. Other things go up. The problem is it is all still based on the insurance model. It's the whole idea of insurance
Because of business due diligence, which is getting more advanced as time passes, medical insurers will always try to figure out who to insure and who not to insure. Imagine life if they perfect this (they will insure you only if the crystal ball that looks into the future knows you will never get sick above a certain level).
The fix is to shift to a system like Sweden has. Even that's not perfect, but it is far better than in the USA. Everyone is covered. There are no middlemen to take a cut without giving real care. And you don't have to worry that the bills will bankrupt you (and often this happens in the USA because of the games the providers play with billing like not having it all go through one billing entity. Sweden is the healthiest country in the world and does it for less than what it costs for incomplete coverage in the USA.
They will just block your IP. You need a massive network of different IP addresses to keep it going.
... based on what works best for them. It should not be about conforming to the expectation of others
One big problem is Fdot has lost their way. They should be promoting traffic safety. Instead, they are doing the opposite and trying to be a revenue source in the totally wrong sense. Feds should crack down on them.
This is a typical Republican tactic. Steal from the poor so the rich don't have to pay for it.
