Right. Because the NSA doesn't have access to IP addresses outside the US. Good luck there chief.
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).
One conviction (felony or otherwise) can be looked at as an outlier. Multiple convictions (felony or misdemeanor) establishes a pattern of poor judgement / impulse control on his part.
If it helps, just think of the gluten-free-because-it's-trendy twits as subsidizing the increased variety of available options for those who actually do need to eat a gluten free/reduced diet. I know both types, and it makes the former much easier to tolerate.
It does in the short term. Most of the cloud services let you recover/undelete a file for up to 30 days.
You're right that it's not a "real backup", but honestly you aren't going to get most people to do a real backup with any consistency. Cloud backup of a documents folder is a useful stopgap.
Example: most NRA members (75%) support sensible gun control
And how many people agree on a single definition of sensible?
They do that too. Here you go:
Your choice of posting name is appropriate.
The way I understood it, often you can put a little clip thing inside a normal magazine to not allow more than a certain number of bullets
Yes. Most commonly you see them installed in tube magazines on shotguns to limit them to whatever your state hunting regs deem appropriate (usually 3 rounds). The block can be removed to restore normal capacity if desired.
To use an AR-15 30 round magazine as an example, it wouldn't be particularly difficult to install a kit that blocks the lower part of the magazine, with a shorter spring to install between the block and the follower. It would still look like a 30 round magazine but would only hold the reduced number. The problem would be that this is easily reversed by removing the block and putting the original spring back in place. I can't see the idiots in the NY legislature trusting their subjects *ahem* constituents with such potential evil.
This is the only way I'm going to get through the next couple of months without strangling some of my FB friends and acquaintances:
Short version: browser add on that lets you (among other things) filter FB to not show you posts containing words like Romney and Obama.
And recreational shooters are no different. In tinderbox conditions like this you can shoot safely, but you have to be careful. Don't shoot steel jacketed or steel cored ammunition, stick to plain lead or copper jacketed only. Don't shoot tracers, don't use gimmick ammo like Dragon's Breath shotgun shells. Above all, pay attention and be prepared to put out a fire. If you're not prepared to do all of that, then maybe you should just do something else until the weather changes.
I'm an avid shooter and probably own more guns than most of the people reading this. My knee jerk reaction is to defend "my" side, but I also want to smack down the morons making the rest of us look bad.
Well now, I think *I* would be the one who stopped doing business with YOU if you feel the need to carry a firearm into MY business.
Tip: The 'wild west' was in the 1800's...
a) You are perfectly within your rights to do so. I don't insist that I have a right to carry on your property, I just say that I choose to do business elsewhere.
b) The 'wild west' was greatly exaggerated. Based purely on murder rate per capita, I'd rather live in 1870 Dodge City than almost any inner city neighborhood in 2012.
Assuming he lives in the united states is not enough. It is not legal in all 50 states to carry a concealed weapon
It's a reasonable assumption though. There is only one state (Illinois) in the US which completely outlaws concealed carry. The other 49 states all have some variation of concealed carry law in place. I'll grant that in places like California, New York or Hawaii it's difficult to obtain one unless you're wealthy or have the right friends, but many of us live in more enlightened states with "shall-issue" laws in effect.
As for businesses and schools, you simply have to be aware of the laws of your state and behave accordingly. I don't carry on school property and I've stopped doing business with companies which choose to disallow carrying on their premises. It's really not that complicated.
And a response to this very comic!
I see a replay of the lawsuit over the ReplayTV 4000 (my first DVR way back when).ready to unfold.
Nice oversimplifaction. Money is not and has never been declared to be free speech in the US. Spending your money to support people who advocate ideas you believe in has been declared a form of protected expression of your political ideas, broadly lumped under the freedom of speech.
