I, fr one, would rather pay $20/gallon of gas during a power outage
I, for one, am prepared for power outages.
You have a 400+ gallon tank of gas that you keep topped up with fresh gas? (it goes bad) That's barely enough to run one small generator for a few weeks, and after Katrina and Ike 3-4+ week outages were common so you'd need twice that much fuel.
Right storm. Within a few hours a 200 mile wide band of gas stations were completely out of fuel, leaving evacuees stranded for 24 hours or more. This started days before the storm, not because of last minute panic and lack of individual planning. People who have jobs left work to discover every gas station withing range of their car was already out of gas. It was a lesson to city planners about what just-in-time fuel inventory systems have done to evacuation planning. So sorry your google is broken, life must be hard for you.
Oh right, fucking nothing.
Know-nothing shitheads need to keep their god damned mouths shut until the find a fucking clue.
I was just thinking that myself.
If CBC can be sued for use of the video without a license, CBC should be able to sue CNN no less successfully, and for no less than the same amount they were sued for, for falsely representing their authorization to license it to them in the first place.
That's how it works/is supposed to work.
The creator of the video isn't responsible for sorting out what arrangement CNN and CBC had, or whether they actually had one at all. In the still image arena, unethical businesses try making the claim that they licensed images from stock, or that they hired a web developer who stole the image (claiming that means they aren't legally responsible...). The law makes the person distributing the image/video responsible for making sure they have the right to, to cut through that kind of smoke screen.
so why did they fire him for it?
He made it easier for FB outsiders to get the information without paying.
He made the sheep more aware of the sheering.
just use regular!
You need enough octane to prevent pre-ignition. If your engine is high compression, you need a higher octane. Turbo and Supercharged cars need higher octane. You only need 'enough', but that varies with air temperature, engine load and the exact fuel formula.
They don't because white people realize that if you pull a gun on a cop, or try to fight a cop or run a cop over with a car your ass is likely to get shot, and deservedly so.
Or refuse a 'request' that would be unlawful if it were an order, and face harassment and arrest at the least. Or use a camera (witnessed NOLA officers beat a photographer prior to going after hippies in a dimly lit area - they've adapted to cell phone cameras!); or drive with out of state plates, etc...
I'm with you on the issue that IT is a function of a business to enable business. I think however there are some real issues with what's going on here.
1) There is a firewall in place which appears to be impeding business from operating 2) The IT guy is trying to get justification from outside to continue impeding business instead of taking the opportunity to identify why the firewall is blocking sites which facilitate their business. 5) The boss seems to believe the users need to access these sites. 6) He wants to handle this on a case by case basis which seems to impede business enough that this has become an issue. This apparently is a solution which doesn't do anything other than impede the workflow of the users.
At the company I work for, there is no web filter because of #5.
The users claim blocking the sites they most visit will impede work flow. They complain about network access speed.
A quick peek at logs shows the website most visited is Facebook. Bandwidth goes to Netflix, Youtube, other video streaming, Pandora, Spotify and other music streaming and then there is noise. The users insist their use of the Internet is work related.
If I were charged with keeping Internet use work related I'd want to review things too. Open access has resulting in a minimum of 90% non-work related traffic to the point that work related use suffers significantly. The worst offenders are the most vocal, and claim all use is work related. HR solutions haven't worked.
Open access doesn't work. Separate from IDS/malware serving website blocking (that needs a subscription from specialists to work effectively), black-lists plus spot check traffic reviews is probably the most open that can work assuming you have the spare manpower in IT to keep up and have management and HR support for dealing with serial abusers. I'd much prefer being able to allow occasional unrestricted personal use provided your work performance is good, but complaining to my boss because your Internet connection is too slow because Netflix is buffering?!?! Screw that!
I've been on Slashdot since you were jacking off to cheerleaders.
Slut shaming cheerleaders? Turn yourself into the Jezebel re-education camp immediately.
Bragging about a high six digit UID is sad. In fact, bragging about the age of your account for any reason at all except to joke about it in a 'get off my lawn' fashion is lame. How about writing intelligently so you have something of worth to brag about.
If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
