I suggest you look at your own text, see that you use both the words "appear" and "be", and then ponder the difference between

I thought it was all about booth babes??
That's exactly like criminals whining that police is interrupting the normal flow of their criminal operations.
Disgusting. And very easy to see through, what a nonsense.
They are not thirteen servers, they are thirteen clusters of servers. And they are better distributed over nations than Tor's DS's. Oh, and alternatives exist. Oh, and TOR is there only for the good people and therefore an easy target. DNS is also used by the bad guys (the governments) and therefore not an obvious target.
I thought traffic lights were for improving traffic
"the inability to offer any in-network value added services" - I was hoping you were referring here to injecting webpages with ads on mobile phones while browsing? Can that criminal behaviour be prevented by an all-HTTPS web?
Can this discussion about the supposed virtues of biometric identification / authentication please die?
Biometric properties are like usernames. Not like passwords. They don't "authenticate" anybody; your fingerprints e.g. can be found all over the world, right in the open.
And on top of that they are BAD usernames, because they can not be changed. Once your biometric identity has been compromised, you have to give up to whole identification / authentication
Thie biggest enemy of citizens has been governments, for quite a while already.
And as always these governments point to the hardly exisiting threats of "terrorism" (but not theirs) and child abuse to lure naive idiots (the vast majority of citizens) into acquiescing these programs.
And oh, the civilians themselves pay for it all.
Debian. But of course not just in 2014, but since it's inception.
/Very/ refreshing to finally see someone else calling out Linus for the incompetent abusive narcissistic nonvaleur he really is.
That was long overdue. Over the years he's been chasing away so many good developers with good ideas and good code, just because he saw them as a threat to perpetuating his tunnel vision on Linux. I've seen quite a number of good and needed kernel developments seen stamped out just because Linus did not understand the need and it irritated his superiority-sensors.
I'm not into systemd, from what I read I read it seems like a good plan but indeed quite badly implemented, but Lennart is 100% spot-on in his evaluation of Linus and some of his inner-circle cronies.
^This. But actually...
The talk about tripods really is utter nonsense; it's a rant of somebody just disliking tripods.
If you do not use a tripod for your picture, YOU HAVE TO STAND IN THAT EXACT SAME PLACE YOURSELF! And probably for a much longer time than when using a tripod, because getting a sharp picture suddenly takes a hundred tries.
As so often with Gnome, it does not work.
As so often with Gnome, it gives no explanation as to how or why, or how to solve (`Options are not for idiots, therefore, you cannot have any').
"Ohh nooo, something went went wrong! All `plugins' (WTF has Gnome regressed to a browser equivalent piece of software now?) were disabled. You can only log out (We disallow you to even try to solve the issue)"
Let no one be distracted; it will be flooded here with nutcases very soon who will all claim that this -obviously- does NOT mean global warming isn't happening.
As always, they "will just have to incorporate this new information into their models"
Bunch of climate terrorists
