You don't have an innate right to anything, however you have innate desires for rights like control over your property up to and including your own body. Society has organised such that we have set aside a portion of our resources to defend these "rights" collectively and make them a notional fact of life in that society.

We pay taxes to defend our "rights" from our neighbours. In your erstwhile sharing economies, it was still collective contributions to the good of the whole and people that didn't want to contribute were removed from the group.

All that said, Disney are dicks.

It's not a minute though, on most servers it's single digit seconds, and it's not even "up" once the login prompt comes up. The "compute-hours" are still spent if you're rebooting all day, they're just spent after the "boot" is complete.

Or do you really think tomcat is "running" when the command prompt returns and not 2 minutes later when the applications are responding, and not minutes after that when the JIT has cached everything so it actually runs at a decent speed?

You mean cue.

You're right about the names though, what you call a thing is THE most important thing in making it successful. Using a name that is easy to find on Google doesn't matter at all.

Trying to find people to dedicate free time to a dead paradigm on the other hand, simplest thing in the world. I don't know why they can't get that right.

+ - Password Gropers Hit Peak Stupid, Take the Spamtrap Bait-> 1

Submitted by (447981) writes "Peter Hansteen reports that a new distributed and slow-moving password guessing effort is underway, much like the earlier reports, but this time with a twist: The users they are trying to access do not exist. Instead, they're take from the spamtrap address list, where all listed email addresses are guaranteed to be invalid in their listed domains. There is a tiny chance that this is an elaborate prank or joke, but it's more likely that via excessive automation, the password gropers have finally Peak Stupid."

Yeah, they can, sort of. My Samsung TV can do it without any Samsung application (just general DLNA), but it sucks ass at it compared to the PS3.. and it's remote is garbage.

Besides, it's means the TV has to be connected to the network and TV network security makes Sony network security look good, and how sad is that?

That's what the TSA agent told me about 5 times while searching my carry on bag on the jet-way while other passengers struggled past and gawked at me. Also that if I didn't declare I had cash in there, they'd seize it.

Her dog looooooved my bag. Unfortunately it didn't have any money in it, just residual dog from my friend's house.

So yeah, I just hope this device is more accurate than the pups :)

You have a couple of entertaining alternatives to just "they're a dick", but it's a reach to say you're covering all cases and as such abuse is never an appropriate response.

As for the "anger towards the parents", if someone assaults me I should go and piss on their ancestor's grave? Exactly how far back do you take the parental responsibility?

"more" could easily include any number of legal remedies, like getting the cops to beat them up, assuming they're not a mentally disabled octogenarian on the loose from prison.

Would it be easier for you if you just changed the carrier from Interwebs to USPS?

Netflix sell you unlimited CD/s month, as long as you return one they'll send out another (there's some supply and sorting issues I believe but that's not the point)

USPS deliver what they're given as fast as they can, so generally you get something like a 3 day turn around on CDs.

Now USPS says "You know, you Netflix people are making more money than we thought you would, we'd like a piece of that. We can offer you a priority 3 day turn around your CDs for a small consideration, otherwise we might just experience some packet loss in the sorting room. Oh noes, your mail seems to be getting lost a lot, huh?"

Also in this analogy, USPS runs their own CD rental service...
