I stopped drinking soda many months back, but I see such perks as signs of a company's financial health, just like the OP suggests.
I declined the "upgrade" and will remove it from my phone when it ceases working. Facebook needs people more than people need Facebook.
I'm trying to drive out an annoying TV theme song right now by listening to Pandora until I find a song I'd rather have stuck in my head.
Maybe we need a market called something like Unplayed for stuff Google won't carry.
No. Didn't you read the subject?
In a protest, people can see the signs carried by the protestors or at least speak with them to find out what it is they're protesting. And while people may be harassed on their way in or out of a place of business, they can still access that business. With DDoS, there are no signs to read and nobody to speak with. In fact, by means of botnets, many involved in the protest may not know it and likely would not want their computer involved in such activities. Plus, to the people attempting to conduct business with the protested, it isn't obvious that the site is being attacked. A DDoS'd server may look like that site is having an otherwise simple connection problem.
Seriously? This person is licensing an exploit kit for $10,000 per month and nobody has bothered following the money to shut him down? I have a hard time believing anyone could make $10K/mo doing this anyway. Wouldn't the first order of business by the exploit buyers be to make it work without the payments? What's the author going to do? Sue them for non-payment?
Right now they only have TF2 on Steam for free. If they can boost that with a few more, especially if they can get a big title like Dungeons and Dragons (which does a decent job of capture the pen and paper mechanics us old schoolers used), DC, Champions, or Star Trek they would probably see a significant uptake of Linux clients.
Install xrdp on the server. It allows you to connect to a Linux server using the Windows RDP client. Just make sure you have a secure tunnel to the virtual server to work in.
If video surveillance doesn't require a warrant, what's to stop the police from using a helicopter based drone from flying in through an open window?
If your hosting service doesn't have an Anti-DDoS tier or option available, the people at blockdos.net were able to help in a pinch. If your host can change your IP address, you'll get the best results. You point your domain at the BlockDoS provided IP and then set your firewall (or server if firewall not an option) to block any inbound traffic not coming from a second BlockDoS provided IP. The downside is that you lose a lot of request header information and your server logs show all requests coming from a small set of IPs. (Using external services such as Google Analytics still works fine though.)
Translation: We can't be bothered by this issue that never hits the mass media news cycles.
I've been making this same argument for the last few months. I suppose it's good to know I'm not alone in this.
I tether a laptop to a feature phone and tell Apple, Microsoft, and Nokia to suck it.
Every time Slashdot hides the teaser, showing only the title, of a story I want to read and I click on that title, I see the teaser for a moment while I'm taken to the story page. I didn't want to leave the Slashdot home page. I just wanted to read the damn teaser without having to click the back button afterward.
