I'm waiting for some spider genes and a bit of radiation....
"The first time that an attack takes place in which it turns out that we had a lead and we couldn't follow up on it, the public's going to demand answers." - Welcome to leadership Obama. Where sometimes you have to make unpopular/hard choices and live with the consequences.
Your access to the internet is not a public utility or a state/federal run highway. A company paid to build your access to the internet, laying miles of cable/fiber/copper (whatever). Lack of competition may be a valid argument on some level, but all in all, the company that provides your access owns the plant. You didn't drop the copper for your access. Personally, I would have a problem with customers telling me I had to use a certain brand of detergent or specific equipment in my imaginary dry cleaning business, or that I couldn't charge an extra 5.99 for express cleaning service or 2.99 delivery fee.
I'll keep using OSX - Windows 7 in Fusion for desktop and getting shit done...
With any call to a place of business, credit card company, whatever - always start with the agent by telling them that you are recording the call (even if you don't - it covers your bases) - all of a sudden their attitudes will be very different and of course if you are recording then there is no question on legality. Works every time I've done it.
Minority Report Anyone?
Adaptec's new 8805 (currently backordered everywhere). Their no Zero-Maintenance-Cache-Protection = no battery cache. About $500 or in that neighborhood.
He likely chose Netflix due to the fact that it now accounts for 50 percent of all North American Fixed Network Data, per Sandvine report Nov 11, 2013. Those are big numbers and indicate that Netflix is big enough to use in examples.
>>You think all deserve a punishment so severe No - I think the consequence should be whatever the law says it is. If you don't like laws, we have a system for changing them.
Crushed? I'm pretty sure he is still alive and kicking. If I don't like your attitude, it's possible I could come over and kick your face in. Should I be charged or let off with a warning? After all, from my viewpoint, I could be doing society a favor. So maybe just a warning, eh? Interesting how easy it is to justify criminal activity.
I'm pretty sure the consequences of what he "began" to participate in were known to him before he started. That makes his choice blatant and well deserved of the punishment awarded. Period.
I'm sure there are plenty of locations in the world where folks who don't appreciate societal laws can live out their fantasy lifestyles of doing whatever they please. Of course, they may have to battle against others who are also selfishly wanting their own desires. I'm pretty sure there could be a place for you as well
So it's okay to participate for only one minute in a hate crime? Or a murder? Or a Heist? Crime is crime, yes? The whole point of law is defining a line not to cross and once crossed the consequence is provided. Most folks know this and in choosing to commit the crime, are also choosing to accept any consequence.
It's a slow news day on Slashdot...
So now I need 12 vm's to perform the same tasks that one vm with 12 apps used to be able to perform? No thanks.
