I saw that documentary! Very well made.
I believe in Angels. They play baseball in Los Angeles.
Since 2005, they've billed themselves as the "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim"
Which is stupid because "Los Angeles" literally means "The Angels"; therefore "The Los Angeles Angels" literally means "The The Angels Angels". They aren't even in LA county. I think they should have kept "Anaheim" or even "Orange County" in their name - changing it the way they've done is sort of a dis on their actual locale. But then, this was a decision of the Disney marketing machine, and money is everything.
.... many networks will stream a good portion of the shows that they air, usually only a day or so after initial broadcast... and typically leave them available for about a week. There's commercials, of course, but it's really not that bad a way to watch television. I'm not sure what need Aero was really trying to fill.
Probably the needs of those for whom those qualifiers are problematic.
Not one Soviet Russia joke in this entire thread? Slashdot, I... I don't know you anymore!
Check your router's and your PC's DNS settings.
Could have been an authentication cookie set by the router's web server when you first logged in. If the router accepted that cookie as valid after the reboot, you wouldn't need to log in. I'd think a well-designed router would invalidate authentication cookies on a reboot.
Vodka-infused gummy vitamins - they're good for you!
Also, if my HR department decides to gamify performance reviews I'm going to lose it.
Just wait until they award you a badge instead of a raise.
"I see you've lead the department in sales this month. Here's a hat."
Yeah, get back in the basement and compute me some pi!
Another out, yes. But not another *legal* out.
Any time a cop has to rely on "other court-friendly means to build their case" that's a pretty clear indicator that the original means were believed to be illegal by the officers in question.
Well, the legal out is the implied 4a) identify the perpetrator, then drop the case. The assumption here is that the evidence of the location of the cell phone (acquired with the Stingray) was valid, legally obtained evidence that would be admissible in court, yet the physical cellphone in the apartment was evidence obtained by illegal search & seizure. The need to rely on "other court-friendly means" in this case would be due to their reluctance to reveal as evidence their court-friendly but secret weapon. I'm really stretching to give the cops as much credit as possible here, but there's no justification for their actions.
Question: There's evidence legally gathered by police, and evidence illegally gathered by police; and evidence admissible in court, and evidence inadmissible in court. Are these a 1:1 correspondence? I.e., is there such a thing as evidence legally gathered by police yet inadmissible in court?
So, fun fact. I've recently come to terms with an ugly fact : I have a legitimate physical addiction to caffeine. If I go a full day without, I get headaches by the end of the day.
Hardly the worst withdrawal symptoms ever, and defeated by some motrin and water
For this reason, I included caffeine tablets in my 72-hour earthquake survival kit. I don't want to be fighting caffeine withdrawl at the same time I'm searching for shelter. I don't trust Starbucks to have emergency power and water plus enough beans in-stock to feed my addition in case of disaster.
That's smart. I'm addicted to caffeine (taken in coffee form) as well, but it's not that hard to break. I've done it a couple times, once voluntarily; more recently when I had the flu and lost all taste for coffee (only took a couple days to get back).
The abuse of this particular substance doesn't amount to much, and there are benefits, so I'm not particularly worried. I might be a little crabby for the first couple days of the apocalypse.
Re the Keurig - they're just looking for revenue streams post-K-cup-patent-expiration. I predict this approach will fail, when competing manufacturers continue to make cheap coffee makers compatible with the massive selection of currently-available cheap K-cups. I love our Keurig, but it's already made coffee stupidly simple; there's just no need for anything better.
There's another out:
(4) Use the device to identify the suspect, then use other court-friendly means to build your case.
From what I've read here, it sounds like the biggest mistake they made was entering the apartment without a warrant. Assuming use of the device was legal (and that's a big if), they're free to figure out where the cell phone is, and thus their prime suspect. If they don't want to admit to court that they use the device, at that point they need to use other means to prove their case against a significantly-narrowed list of suspects.
In this particular case, however, there may not have been any way to build their case without searching the premises. The 4th amendment allows for "reasonable" search & seizure without a warrant, but they won't be able to make a convincing case to a court without explaining what their reason was for searching that property. At this points the cops can't take this case any further without violating the Constitution or their NDA. They opted for the Constitution.
That's nearly identical to my list for Windows PCs. I also add Paint.NET, SumatraPDF, and DropBox. I didn't know about frhed, but will try it out - I've been lamenting my lack of a good "giant file" hex editor.
Also, Ninite is great (as has been mentioned elsewhere in this thread).
