>I am curious, how do you think the police should be able to look for people drink driving?
Speaking as an attorney, but not giving legal advice . . .
Most DUI arrests come form being pulled over from something else. Folks aren't generally weaving from lane to lane till about
But inebriated folks do other things that get them pulled over--speeding, lane changes, cutting folks off, and so forth . . .

This is so perfect. What does the chameleon say?
On a side note - I'd pay a lot of money to be able to roll my 'r's like he does for the platypus.
I can go back all the way to 2001 and what I'm pretty sure was my first comment with this account.
My guess would be that the limit is in place unless you have a subscription. Though that's just a guess.
It's funny - every time (and it happened a lot) that I would fly into Florida, the dominant thought in my mind would be "Men went to the moon from here."
In December, barring something unexpected, I'll be visiting Russia for the first time. Moscow to be specific. And all I can think about is Tolstoy's Anna Karenina. It's probably my single favorite book. I'm pretty excited though I'll need to bring my heavy coat.
Announcing that it isn't property doesn't change seven hundred years of Common Law, anymore than the mantra that "perjury isn't impeachable" changed the law in the 90s (in fact, 7 of the 10 impeachable offenses that Blackstone listed were forms of perjury, and 3 or 4 federal judges were impeached for various perjury in the 80s).
The computer is tangible personal property, and withholding/controlling the password exercises dominion and control ofter that chattel.
This has long been recognized. For example, "trespass vi et armis" is an civil (might also be criminal; I haven't worried about it in decades) doctrine governing trespass without physically being on the land, the classic example being the percussion from an explosion on the next land causing damage.
It is certainly *easier* to prosecute under newer specific laws, but claiming that the current laws *cannot* be used is just plain wrong.
It's a dumb joke - but it does make me wonder if the F-5 has this problem and if not - why they chose to make the T-38 with this weaker canopy. The aircraft was already relatively inexpensive.
As The Offspring say, "The more you suffer, the more it shows you really care. Right?"
Of course I really haven't found anywhere better. There are some interesting discussions on Reddit sometimes. There are some good links at Hacker News but the discussion is usually not in a direction that is very interesting to me. Twitter is too constraining. Facebook? Well you know. It's useful to me in a social sense -- in that it helps me stay connected with non-technical people I care about. But it doesn't replace or compete with why I'm here.
So here I am. And I'll probably be here until they shut it down or something better comes along.
There are a few programs that she needs to run that require windows or mac. I thought about going with apple but I wasn't sure about making that switch when everything else in my house is windows or linux. Going forward I may just make the jump.
But even if I moved towards mac/linux I'd still have at least one windows machine for games. So I was aiming to keep things simpler.
Anyway -- if Linux could do everything I needed, that would be it. But unfortunately that's not the case. And I've never been a fan of Apple products or their approach but it feels like Microsoft is pushing me in that direction with one bad decision after another.
Ran across an article by Carla Schroder today on making screencasts on linux using Kdenlive and Audacity. I didn't know Kdenlive could do capture. Shoot - last time I used it a couple years ago it was pretty unstable when I tried to use it to edit videos I'd made with RecordMyDesktop. So I didn't have it installed on my current system. Fixed that pretty quickly and on the se
Nah, it was the writers' math teachers that were foiled . . . mixing "for the most point, they don't respond" with "nearly a third" not answered . . . so for the most part they *do* respond.
As an attorney, I could easily see prosecuting these under traditional property crimes, as well: a password is a type of property, and taking it could be larceny, for example.
Such laws certainly make the prosecution easier (to the dismay of my criminal law partner)
As I mentioned previously - trying to install Windows 8.1 makes my new Samsung turn into an expensive paperweight.
No problem - I just wont install it.
I won a free 7" Galaxy 3 at a conference last week.
It would take a lot more to reach "underwhelmed" by it.
At $500 for an iPad, and $100 for it, I'll take the iPad.
Heck, at $500 iPad, and free tablet, I'll take the ipad.
