You don't "connect" to the overwhelming majority of satellites. They're described as "bent pipes." They receive signals on one frequency on one antenna and transmit them on another frequency on another antenna. Most don't even convert to a digital signal; it's a pure analog copy. You "connect" to the ground station on the other side.
My point was: I agree with your point.
Also: except for the brief brain-fart, the AC's comment about failing to understand the interstate commerce clause was correct. A company's headquarters location has no bearing on whether a particular transaction is interstate commerce and thus immune to state oversight. Moreover, similar topics come up in this forum often enough to justify a certain level of disgust with folks who still can't spot the difference. Applying the pejorative "moron" to mosb1000 was not entirely without foundation.
Well, no, it isn't. Iridium data channels don't have the capacity for that. RUDICS data streams take a long time to establish (on the order of a minute), move only a couple hundred bytes per second and drop frequently under good conditions. SBD shots are more likely to work, but you can only deliver a 2000 byte packet once every minute or two.
I don't know which one the advertiser's device uses but either way it's only enough for periodic snapshots of the data not a continuous send.
Do you have Onstar service for your car? Same difference. Most people choose not to buy it. The device is only present in new vehicles because Onstar pays manufacturers to include it.
Now that the physical media is destroyed, does that mean I am legally within my rights to download a copy from some online source?
No. That downloaded copy would be somebody else's copy not yours. If you still had a copy of the rip you made from *your* CD, your ownership of a copy would still cover that.
I'm pretty sure he meant to say "the interstate" rather than "in their state." What on earth did you think he meant to say?
Yeah, it really costs $100k. Custom Iridium devices of this character aren't terribly expensive, on the order of $500k to $1M to design and $5k-$10k each to manufacture in small quantities. The rest is the cost of putting it on the plane, maintaining it and paying for satellite service.
Iridium is an LEO satellite constellation. You only send the radio signal a few hundred miles, you you can basically point an antenna generically at the sky and talk. It doesn't require the kind of complex engineering that talking to a geostationary satellite from a moving vehicle would.
The report didn't say, but a device of this nature is most likely what was on he air france flight, sending in the maintenance reports.
Nevertheless, $100k is a lot of money. Would the passengers have been willing to pay more for the tickets so that their loved ones would have a slightly better idea where they crashed? Probably not.
Tesla is treading a knife edge here. Right now they're on the correct side of it: they should have a right to sell. But what happens when the first buyer wants a third party to maintain the vehicle and Tesla decides not to cooperate?
Tesla could quickly find themselves on the wrong side of public wrath.
That's what it exists for: getting money for school activities.
Not really. Linux inherently does everything UAC does and more. SELinux tries goes beyond that.
Instead of just needing permission to make changes to your computer, SELinux requires a process that you gave permission to make a change to your computer get permission again to make a different kind of change to your computer (and again and again and again).
As reported, it also forbids executable stacks. Ordinary Linux only requires programs which use executable stacks to declare themselves. The vast majority of programs don't need to, so they're protected against stack overflows.
A stack overflow in a single-user game running with ordinary account permissions is, quite frankly, not a security issue.
Have you looked at whether a faulty interaction with DNSSEC could be at fault?
This is what the alumnae association at your school is for.
This leaves me with one question: What's an ESR?
For a complete and immediate answer, click the first link in the first sentence of the article.
Yeah. First thing I do on new Linux installs is disable SELinux. Linux does satisfactory job protecting against the common problems (like buffer overflows) without SELinux. SELinux adds hassle well past the point of diminishing returns for improvement to security.
Boss, most government contractors can't even *think* about H-1B's lest their government customer catch wind of it and grow nervous. Given my career, I would know.
Like I said, if it appears to you that the majority of companies want H-1B's, you're simply looking in the wrong place. You won't find a good job hanging with the day laborers out by the highway. That isn't where the good jobs are.
