I heard one of Obama's unclassified speeches, it was on TV, does that make me a hax0r ?
I hate these islamic extremists at least as much as anyone here. But it isn't just islam that is capable of such things.
Heraclitus believed the only way to avoid being an extremist is to contradict oneself. (according to my understanding).
Most people are probably extremists, we can only really understand the world based on our own experiences, so anyone who is an extremist like us wont appear to be an extremist.
Also capitalism rewards specialization, which is a very constructive form of specialization.
At basic training in the military the process of team building involved breaking us all down as individuals and building us up as a team. First they went after any way you appeared or behaved differently, then they went after the "normal" people because not being different is being different.
Looking for differences, or extremists is a witch hunt, easy enough to find one if you abandon objectivity.
The real enemy is those who think they have the right and ability to judge others objectively (unless they are an actual judge, those deserve respect).
Search engines should shine a light on sites that show different results to different users, maybe its for commercial exploitation (GEOIP blocking), or political propaganda or whatever.
Search engine show allow users to run crawlers in coordinated distributed manner, this helps users have privacy, it adds extra noise to surveillance systems, it might give users deniability as to their intent to access subversive material. It it should help with the first problem.
Apparetly drugs can help a creative mind, which isnt what you want when studying logic based subjects, but if doing somethign something expressive, creative, original
In Australia government will be suing corporation for not spying on their users. (metadata retention laws)
The two year data retension has been in place since the first ISPs started as an industry code of practice decades ago.
I call bullshit, what do you base that on ?
When Jacob Applebaum was at LCA he mentioned key IT people at one of the Major ISPs say they didnt snoop.
If it has always been done by industry arguing about passing on the cost to customer ?
(this government is so tight they wouldnt compoensate anyone if they had any choice)
There was a poll done by essential media, who do regular party polling (not the best), but often ask interesting questions.
Question + Result here http://essentialvision.com.au/...
The voters of both major parties dont want this legislation, but both parties negotiated so there is "bipartisan support on national security".
No effective opposition mean no effective democracy.
Next up is the censorship bill, or three strikes or whatever which will likely go the same way.
If you have to get the computer that close to the machine you want to hack, then you could just drop by occasionaly and connect a cable/wifi to it and do a data dump.
In the 1990s, I would have had one or two attempted suicides a year â" mainly teenaged girls taking overdoses, the things that don't get reported. Now, I could have as many as four a month.
Perhaps pver the last 25 years she become good at her job, and gets more referals because of that, or maybe there is some other explanation as to why she as an individual has seen more attempted suicides.
I think i know why she isnt a computer programmer
"The more common definition, however, is that transmitting and receiving can be done simultaneously"
If it is transmitting and receiving as fast as the TX or RX could do in its own channel, then yes i would call that full duplex.
But if they are reducing the data transmission rates in order to share the same medium then it really is half duplex.
Obviously using a shared channel, otherwise it would not be news
Blind obediance to your newslords...
By definition its not full duplex if its using a shared channel to transmit and receive.
Looks like what they have is a fast switching half duplex.
I second the MS sculpt keyboard, your wrists sit on the front which is higher than the back. Your fingertips just naturally hover over the keys with straight wrists, and its just veyr restful.
I also like the weirdo mouse (combo), but it took me a while to get used to it, i kept tiping it over... you rests the side of your hand on the desk which saves the palm of my hand from getting sore. Still use a flat mouse for gaming though, wouldnt want this weirdo one for that.
Having the seperate numeric pad means the mouse is a lot closer to your right hand so you dont have to move it so far.
Hard to improve on.
For the first time in history, a prototype story has been created that is claimed to be completely buzzwords,
What on earth do they think trumps their obligations to the license they agreed to by using GPLv2 software in their product?
Their profits i imagine.
A human brain will accept all sorts of compromised logic to get something it really wants.
