You can already do true AD under Linux with vanilla Samba 4.x. And its been availible since 2011.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Cures for diseases and repairs should come first. While there are some unbelievably horrendous diseases out there that at present time we cannot cure. An example of this is one of the worst Cancers you can get, Transitional cell Carcinoma, which we wage an endless struggle even slowing down it moves so radically fast. That doesn't meanwe shouldn't keep looking for cures where ever is possible.
If you're a wheel chair bound quadriplegic we should be looking for a way to repair, regrow, or use a cybernetic augment your spinal column where you can move again. If you're a 100 year old senile man who can't remember if he's wearing pants then we should find a way to re-grow the failed Glial cells in your brain causing you to have de-reference failures in your brain making you unable to remember that you are not wearing any pants.
And while the Judeo/Christian/Islamic god may not exist in reality he exists in the minds of those that believe in him, and that god profits from our agony and misery. The best way to defeat that god's will, is to create conditions where Humans live healthy comfortable lives. Humans that are healthy, content, and have a high standard of living and education will not turn to "God" for help and will not be controlled as such.
Try and imagine what it would be like if every single moment of every single day were recorded by numerous devices you so much as got within close proximity too, now think of what could happen if one person with one axe to grind wanted to falsely accuse or implicate you in something, and knew of a security vulnerability on the device. You would have no defense against self-incrimination.
Mark of the beast Christian mythological Claptrap and tripe aside - this is Human rights violating, insecure, and scary. I'm a secular Agnostic who thinks Christianity, Islam, and Judaism are all dangerous and violent cults. This is just a mis-use of technology of a technology meant for use in inanimate objects to stalk people and destroy people's lives. This can destroy someone's Anonymity in their outside life. The law should be adjusted to deal with the problem accordingly. Those people who had those implants put in should have them removed. Post Haste. I don't care if it was voluntary or not, it sets a dangerous precedent.
And before the Religious apologists show up. No, Jesus was not a son of any god, Because we have no evidence to support the existence or non existence of any gods. He was just a Radical Rabbi who pissed off the Romans and got executed for starting a cult. A cult that has been responsible for some of the worst Human atrocities in our history.
Its what tech, and how the tech is used. Both in the Apple and Microsoft Camp, our schools have been and are being fleeced for billions possibly Trillions to buy grade school and high school kids toys, from MacBooks, to iPads, to Surface Tablets. Linux and Android technologies that could be used to teach effective use of problem solving in Math, science, Literacy, and assistive technologies for the Disabled are being shut out to prop up wholesale robbery of the tax payer to buy media consumption platforms to create an addict user base that is helpless without effective tools.
I had that issue with Pogo Srabble, there are a few work arounds:
1. Use a Hex editor and edit the Version number to one the site likes
2. Use FreshPlayerPlugin with the Chromium version of Flash. That really does work.
3. Use Google Chrome/Chromium.
If I can pay for a house I would summarily refuse to be a member of a homeowners association. At the time of buying, I'd check and make sure there's no Home owner's association or if there was make sure the contract said I was somehow exempt or just not a member of the association and not subjects to its bylaws. Possibly having police or attorney presence.
Uh no. You are a scum bag, The Video Game Crash happened because for one thing, The Atari 2600 was such an unbelievably primitive system, it was impossible to make complex game with and the NES was a ten year leap ahead in technology.
Yes this is Terrible. Yes it was not so much that Apple has a monopoly, as much as Apple's behavior is so totalitarian. I am very anti-DRM and anti-DMCA, and wish there was more anti-DRM and anti-DMCA sentiment in the population at large.
Allah is an Arabic Translatiteration of the term Elohah or Elohim, a term used to describe Yahweh in the old testament. Its actually a title.
I'm getting tired of the anti-intellectualism here on Slashdot. But look, I want inventions to come along to where we aren't burning coal to make electricity and paying hundreds of US or Canadian or Euro Dollars in money to put Gasoline in our Cars. It SUCKS! and we need to do what ever it takes to find a way to make electricity generation so inexpensive and cost so little that all we have to pay for is the upkeep of the facilities and infrastructure. But I don't want to see smoke stacks belching smoke, and I don't want to see cars that spew Carbon Monoxide. There must be a way. Figure out what that way is.
Stop listening to the Pro-Fossil Fuel Drivel!
Don't use Bleeding Edge Kernels on Stable Production systems. I still use Kernels for 3.10, and 3.12 with security updates. I can't have Intermittent unexplained lockups.
Removing the DMCA is not possible. It would require a complete revolution against the US Government on the issue eliminating all participants in every branch of the Government as too many people see the rights of users to control their electronic equipment as the catalyst for a world wide economic depression the likes of which we have never seen,
The US Population has been conditioned since the days of the Atari 2600 Crash of 1983 to believe that limiations on who has the right to make software should be tightly controlled and if its not the result is Market Collapse. This is because the NES "Saved" the Video game industry.
I'm a downstream contributor. I work with two distributions reporting bugs and updating Packages. I have Cluster access to two Distributions. I find that if you are non-coder, Downstream is easier to work with than Upstream. I do this because I run these OSes, and I use them to get work done.
I suspect the KKK is involved in this some how. This looks like a Classic 1950s/1960s Rigged Jury situation. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the KKK was not somehow involved. It reads like something you'd hear about 50 years ago.
