I read a really neat paper about the implications of the Doge election protocol to distributed systems. There the focus was more on preventing bribary and less on more general fraud, but it was a pretty cool system. [pdf] www.hpl.hp.com/techreports/2007/HPL-2007-28R1.pdf

That's already been patented. You need to go deeper. http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2012/08/01/157743897/can-you-get-a-patent-on-being-a-patent-troll
But if you back up your data in the cloud, your data could fall as rain anywhere in the world.
I got mine two weeks after ordering from Newell or Newark or somesuch. They did tell me 8-10 wks so maybe I just got lucky.
Don't underestimate the power of placebos, especially in intractable cases. They are not medically useless.
Dread is right. BB is one of the few shows I've watched where I'm actually afraid to find out what happens next. Not in the horror movie sense...in the trainwreck sense.
but barring that I'd settle for a couple thousand years. Even five hundred would be pretty nice.

We'll just store the oil and energy in the cloud. The automotive industry has been ripe for disruption for a long time.
Gaah you're right, I was mixing up SOCKS proxying with how AT&T (or was it Sprint?) was blocking some tethering apps by TTL that just bounced them through; but this is new packets so it's moot. I'm sure some kind of rate information would let them detect various protocols within SSH but I'm not too worried about that 'cause I don't use much data.
Really I just want to check my email on a device where I can actually reply to it when traveling. I have a $3/day pay-as-you-use T-Mobile contract but I've yet to try to tether with it.
If they're using browser agent detection it sounds like a blacklist rather than a whitelist.
Any idea if this could be bypassed by SSH tunneling all your computer traffic to a computer on the other side? It would still be distinguishable from traffic that originated from your phone by looking at the TTL, but I doubt many people do this.
Ditto, except MOO 1 not MOO 2 (I play it some but it's just not as good as the original).
Speaking of not as good as the original, I also still play TFTD. Tacky and unoriginal as the story may be, it has some elements I like.
BTW have you seen XComUtil? (ironically, the guy's now at BioWare): https://sites.google.com/site/stjones/xcomutil Speaking of DLC...
Also http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/69341191/xenonauts/ and http://ufoai.org/wiki/index.php/News (I've played the latter, it's excellent).
How can you go about doing this? Wouldn't any backups you make by definition fall under the order? It seems like such a court order would completely shut your company down until all proceedings were over, which could be for years.
You forgot "Headless Body of Agnew" and "Richard Nixon's Disembodied Head"
Why not ask Valve nicely?
You only tell people in select states you're doing it.
