or in gaol or hanging separately:
Financial penalties should be proportional:
- how many others participated in this DDOS? divide by that number
- how long were other machines involved in this? divide by that time
- how fast was his internet connection in comparison to the others? divide by that
He admitted to guilt, but it's not fair to hold him completely financially responsible simply because he was the only person they were able to catch and was honest enough to confess.
The last time I looked at the statistics for this, a bicycle rider involved in a collision w/ a car at highway speeds was a fatality 96% of the time --- I can't think of a single sort of car accident w/ that sort of fatality statistic.
There was a lengthy discussion about this here on Slashdot a while back, but oddly, it's not linked at the bottom of the page at the moment.
If I had mod points, you'd have one.
Our local PBS affiliate (the only channel I watch) switched early and broadcast at full power initially --- I was able to get the signal in my basement w/ rabbit ears --- until the other stations switched over and they also reduced power --- can't pick up the signal in my basement so had to run a line up to the living room and build a digital TV antenna:
When the weather is bad I have to pick it up from behind the couch and place it in the window.
If you're in Australia, beat the rush and grab any parts you need before the rush (or go into business making and selling them).
Same here --- I'm still using a Fujitsu Stylistics ST-4121 of the same vintage and can't find a decent replacement at a reasonable price (though apparently some ThinkPad models have an outdoor viewable display now?).
and shares profits equally.
I never regret spending money w/ them, and the consideration for their workers shows in their customer service which is top-notch.
while performing their duty.
They're expected to fill out a duty log detailing everything which they did.
They're expected to accurately and promptly reply when the dispatcher asks where they are and what they're doing.
If their supervisor shows up on site and asks what's happening they are obligated to comply.
If an elected official whose duties include supervising those in their chain of command shows up, they are obligated to comply w/ reasonable requests for information.
I use mine to run Grbl in a CNC milling machine --- a ShapeOko:
(discl. I'm a moderator on the forums and wiki and will be doing the docs for the ShapeOko 2)
That's a brilliant idea, and I'd be very interested in something like that --- hopefully Tesla's concept will be equally ingenious and flexible.
We should discourage pickups running around w/ constantly empty beds --- I have one, and try to only move it when I'm hauling stuff, or for a bi-weekly constitutional trip to keep the tires round and the batteries charged --- been riding my bike to work since my wife is driving my car since hers was totaled and hasn't yet been replaced.
Whether or not you need a gun permit or registration is a matter of local law --- only a few places have such measures in place.
The new SketchUp Make license is quite restrictive though --- no for-profit use, and any such usage requires payment of an annual license fee.
Thanks! I wasn't aware that the ThinkPads had that feature --- haven't had one since my 755c....
I've got a bunch of machines at home, including a Fujitsu Stylistics ST-4121 which I'd install this on if it were workable for just a few apps:
- Creaturehouse Expression
- FutureWave SmartSketch
- Autodesk Sketchbook
- Macromedia FreeHand/MX
The only one of those w/ a credible opensource equivalent is Fontlab (FontForge is workable for most projects I've used it on) --- unfortunately, I'm not finding a reasonable replacement for my Stylistic --- I need:
- slate format (mislike hauling a keyboard around)
- Windows compatibility (for the afore-mentioned apps)
- decent battery life (I use extended batteries and carry a spare)
- daylight viewable display
That last is the killer --- I'm not seeing daylight-viewable displays these days outside of the ruggedized models (which are quite pricey).
There was however at least one no bid contract awarded --- it went to a local company: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/avoid-severe-consequences-delays-hhs-awards-no-bid-contracts-marketplaces_754032.html
It's being contested though: http://www.gao.gov/products/D04539
