Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
also most Autodesk software needs local admin to run right or at least the older ver of it did.
AutoCAD 2013 (and 2012, and at least a few more versions back) run fine without admin rights. It helps to have write permissions opened up on various AutoCad folders (Program Files\AutoDesk, ProgramData\Autodesk, etc.) to allow for customization, but the application will run fine. Admin rights are only needed at the time of initial installation.
My understanding was that they still did only hashing if they had the file already, and would pick random bytes of the file to hash to ensure it *really* was the file they have in their backend storage. I'll have to test tonight with a download.
It will still do the upload de-dupe within your own account. So if you upload a file, and then rename it and upload another copy, that will still happen mostly instantly. If you're going to test it out, make sure to use two separate Dropbox accounts.
One snag - it is impossible to differentiate between legal backup and illegal warez. Both would be in the form of an ISO (or other disc image) and are indistinguishable. Now what do you say to the person who has a huge game collection and all his discs backed up legitimately?
Yep...that's why I said "if you can detect pirated games". The burden is on Sony to figure out how to do that, without punishing their customers or taking away access to legitimately purchased hardware/software (including the legally allowed backup copy)
Hint: We don't enjoy the adverts, especially after paying almost $12 for a ticket. Perhaps if the whole audience gives the camera the finger through all of the ads, they will get the message?
The end result, unfortunately, will probably be for China to block the Kindle browser altogether, since they wouldn't be able to easily filter the traffic (unless it's not using SSL, in which case they probably could but it will be clunky). Otherwise, Amazon would have to cooperate and do the filtering on their end.
I'll most likely be doing a combination of either Linux or Windows 7 Media Center recording the over-the-air channels that I can receive with my antenna and getting the rest from Hulu (with proxying around a Cablevision block if necessary), Netflix, Amazon VOD, and iTunes.
