DNS is a theoretically good system and one that we obviously all rely on every day. However, so many DNS implementations from the registrar level down to your cheap little wifi-router-all-in-one box that connects to your ISP are so totally broken. I think the way this is written is pretty trollish and should instead have focused on the wider question of how we can advance to where so many devices and programs that have to deal with name resolution will act more to-spec and consistently. Comcast should take some heat here for a partially broken DNS implementation, but without better evidence, I see no intentional evil in this particular story.
Ripe time to take up steganographry...
Isn't anyone else just plain poor->broke? I run XP on an older Celeron with 512MB RAM because I have absolutely no money to upgrade. I dual-boot to Lubuntu and come back to XP for the 2005ish and before games I can still play. Some have proven ok with Wine / playonlinux, but most not.
Look, I am not defending the aggressors here, but I like Molotov's. It's certainly not a place, however, that I would proudly sport any $1,500 set of eye-wear, at least not in a way that I am obviously bragging about it, though. Camera-laden or not.
I'm an American who lives in Germany, and this all doesn't add up - practically all of the YouTube content that I want to see see that instead has this GEMA message is AMERICAN content. GEMA certainly doesn't own the rights to much, if any of it. I've always had the understanding that somehow German agencies haven't paid the American fees to play licensed content, or something. It's an entirely different message if I want to watch, say, Swiss content that also is not properly licensed here.
Has anyone actually looked at the slides? To me, they appear so completely, laughably fake. Reminds me of amateur materials for spy / sci-fi role playing dice and books games from the 80s.
Now tell me that I am a shill for discrediting these obviously genuine training materials.
The hacking attack is detailed in a leaked “crisis strategy draft” plan, apparently created by Gox and published Monday by Ryan Selkis, a bitcoin entrepreneur and blogger (see below). According to the document, the exchange is insolvent after losing 744,408 bitcoins — worth about $350 million at Monday’s trading prices."

A U.S. Citizen cannot be denied entry to the country. They *can* confiscate your bags... but they can't deny you entry.
You can be denied exit of the last country before the USA. I was detained at Schipol (Amsterdam international airport), subjected to a strip search and a "friendly" but hugely intimidating amount of questions. They also physically disassembled (but made no practical attempt to access the data on) a LaCie Rugged external HD I had with me. I could not simply ask for a lawyer. I *DID* have all the marks for a targeted search and interrogation: Looked like a total punk stoner leaving Holland for the USA (I've not been to Holland, except for this stop in their airport - my passport clearly showed this); was admittedly beyond the tourist Visa waiver on my US passport (had been in Germany for 6 months with my now wife, then fiance) and had a stack of German anarchist pamphlets in my rucksack (this last part was certainly why I was detained and harassed longer, but not the original reason).
While I understand the need for security, it bothers me greatly that I could be subjected to this for physical appearance and reading material that was well within my rights in all three countries to possess. It bothers me more that my friends react with shock not to this treatment but that I didn't get a haircut and mail myself the pamphlets rather than take them on a plane. The only bit that I completely have to roll with is that yes, I was legally no longer to be allowed in Europe at the time.
I am surprised there is so much debate here on this. Apparently I have a different understanding of Wikimedia's core mission than some people. In my understanding, their mission is to provide, without restriction, community curated knowledge, period. It is temporarily unfortunate that some (even a significant quantity of) people may be unable to benefit from supporting media to the core knowledge because the platform they are paying for in turn forces them to pay a license for the proprietary technology to read such material. But in the long run it is absolutely appropriate that no proprietary technology should be required to read a single digital bit of the material that Wikipedia provides. To have allowed h.264 would have subtly subverted the core mission.
...this is why we must not have brown M&Ms.
Oh. My. God. I knew this topic would be rampant with trolls, but I had no idea how retarded it would actually be. Nobody seems to even question the numbers in the OFA, and everyone is for some idiotic reason lowering themselves to the point of debating IIS vs. Apache. You FOOLS. This is just silly.
As is clear from the subject, this is not a comment on the topic but the
The physiological causes of tinnitus are not the only basis for the condition. It can also be purely neurological. For example, cessation of Benzodiazapenes (typically Xanax or Klonopin - generically Alprazolam) after long-term use is known to often cause tinnitus for ~two years or perhaps more. I have relatively severe tinnitus of this causation. I agree with others' experiential anecdotes - it really can be quite debilitating in a very silent situation.
For quite some years now, Ardour has been the apparent frontrunner in the area you are asking about.
Excellent and thoughtful reply - thank you. I do see your point, especially as you make the specific point about Céline. Taking the difficult jump to really get in to his often first-person, disjointed and abstract narratives, really does allow the reader to understand a character I would find loathsome in the real world.
