A judge who has never used a hammer? Something like this?
Only a tiny, miniscule fraction of companies have French subsidiaries.
"a tiny, miniscule fraction of" = "large, international"
Of course Joe's Pizza Empire does not have a branch in France.
Its like that court in Texas where the Patent Trolls always sue, France has made a few implausible rulings against Google so he went there.
Opensuse dropped sysvinit when the current level came out several months ago. Before that they had defaulted to systemd but allowed sysvinit.
My considered opinion of systemd? I hate it. I don't have a server farm, I have a couple of desktop machines with Samba and nfs capability and sysvinit was ideal.
Spiegel does "wütend" frequently and well. I'm not aware they are any angrier about this than a host of other issues in the past.
What got me here was that Merkel and Friedrich were playing everything down until it was *her* phone being tapped.
Having seen a number of near-misses in London, no way would I cycle there. The main arteries are simply scary, the minor roads take too long and cross the main ones too frequently. Maybe the Greenway would make sense if both ends of the journey are in its vicinity.
First we have a Slashdot article on a bill to combat patent trolling and then 90 minutes later HP announce they are looking to offload some patents. There is an obvious connection there, not that HP were necessarily thinking of trolling.
I imagine most of their employees have raised flags at some point and that those who have not either have the creativity of a box of rocks or have been inserted by some intelligence agency.
The CIA is involved in spying. You expect their people to be inquisitive.
The Evil Bit is only defined under IPV4, time to update the specs.
Cable, 50Mbit downlink.
I'll see what my uplink speed is when the next opensuse level comes out and I torrent it.
Just because he is an obnoxious (fit your adjective in here) does not mean he is wrong on this. As to your "More to the point", you are trying to obfusticate the message by vilifying the (insert same adjective here).
I dislike the guy but things have been going that way for a while now. Apple under Jobs were innovative patent trolls, Apple without Jobs are no longer innovative.
All the same, assessing the company on what your kids think is of limited value. Android products are usually more 'affordable' and are being aimed at older (30-something) kids with money to burn.
I have never had that problem in Germany but I can imagine where a hotel which had that policy is coming from.
The previous government implemented a law where you can get an "Abmahnung" (cease and desist, you have to pay the lawyers' real or imagined costs) if you have indulged in illegal file-sharing. There is no burden of proof. I got one a couple of years back for allegedly distributing some porno.
I immediately got a lawyer on to it and defused it a bit but a couple of things came out.
- It does not matter if it was you or not if they claim it was your access-point. That applies even if a Trojan was responsible (unless you can finger the people responsible) or someone cracked your Wifi connection.
- They absolutely do not care if the allegations are correct or not.
My Wifi was and is WPA2 with a 63-byte random upper/lowercase string as a key. I used a bootable CD virus scanner and made sure there was no trojan.
I *was* online at the time they claimed but assume they asked for the wrong ip-address or the wrong time. I decided I had the wrong ISP and left T-Online.
Mimicry is perfectly standard behaviour for animals. There have been studies on how parents teach their offspring how to hunt dating back decades. This applies on land, on/under water and in the air. Most of the studies I have heard about involve mammals or birds, I can't remember any involving reptiles, fish or (in particular) insects. Some larger spiders may have this ability - ones large enough to eat small ground-nesting birds for instance
The article itself is more about adapting behaviour by watching humans and that is self-limiting, apart from speech there is not much useful a bird can learn that way. I have a neighbour who used to look after the garden before it was turned into a lawn. Back then he had a fan - a blackbird which would hang around when he was digging, waiting for worms to be unearthed. It presumably recognised my neighbour as non-threatening and the digging as the same thing it would do but on steroids.
I was attacked by a goose a few years back. We were sitting outside and someone had fun throwing it scraps, closer and closer to me. It tried to drive me off by driving at me while hissing and flapping its wings. I joined in the fun by advancing on it, hissing back and 'flapping' my arms the same way. Communication was achieved, goose withdrew to a safer distance.
