This was biting some of my users after migrating a file sharing server from W2k3 to W2k8r2. This is the future?
Well, you collected a bunch of things, and now suddenly the scanner stops working. You look around and suddenly you notice that there's nobody around. You could abandon the basket and go to another store, but that would take time and effort... Or you could "come back and pay tomorrow".
You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.
Or are they implying that either the units are not resell-able or the second owner is not licensed to run the firmware it comes with? I see the first-sale doctrine preventing the first and actually invalidating any other implied license between Sony and the second owner.
If you buy the razor, how are you obligated to purchase blades from the same vendor (stupid connector patent schemes aside), rather than using it as a back scratcher?
I also agree with the reap-what-you-sow comment above, but I'm more interested in those third parties that may be caught in the cross-fire.
I'm all for the "information wants to be free" mantra, but when it can come to a considerable cost to others, the disclosure can't wipe their hands completely of responsibility. Airing a politician's dirty laundry is one thing, but releasing documents that may have names of people that may be endangered unawares should be handled with some discretion.
I really don't like being on this side of the argument..
No doubt that could cause a bloody mess!
I see no reason to jump to any conclusion as long as there may be doubt about the validity of the data you/we are looking at.
those digits that start with 9
what, like '9' ?
Or "6" if you're standing on your head... Possibly "l" if you're a neighboring digit looking at your two-dimensional buddy on the same plane... Or if you're a surrealist, the answer could be "rutabega".
