Now that we xenophobically blocked Syrian refugees, now the Governors have announced they will keep Amierica safe by banning cell phones. "The terrorists used cell phones and this new technology they learned from Snowden (aka Moldemort) called SMS. We must not be threatened by this illegal usage of dangerous technology." Rumor has it they're going after books next and plan big book burnings and witch drownings. "I know at least one of those ISIS phuckers read a Harry Potter book," Texas governor was overheard saying.
For the people asking why intel communities aren't shutting them down: They're intel sources. Why would you shut down accounts when they tell you TTPs, SOPs, areas of influence, capabilities, locations (eg. idiot Twitters a pic of the ISIS HQ, which is then bombed within 24 hours), etc. Besides, no manning for this as there's no DoD or IC requirements to "shut down propaganda accounts."
Because in Europe, they'll pull you over for not passing, while cruising in the left lane. I drove a rental around Belgium and Germany, and was warned by quite a few people to stay out of the left two lanes (assuming 3+ lane) I've watched CHP (California Highway Patrol) roll up on a left lane squatter, cruise for about 1-2 miles behind, and then pass on the right. Which, technically, I think passing on the right is also illegal to go along with the impeding. The only place I've seen here enforce is CHP up north, around Monterey, where retirees in motorhome back up 4+ cars going up hills.
Well... The son I've got in mind (the one that's showing an interest in this subject) is 16. Age isn't a factor.
My plan is to use Python as a stepping stone: teach some basic procedural things, use turtle to provide some visuals (he's taking Drafting classes at his high school), and then introduce him to the tools provided with the Unreal engine (A friend of mine pointed me at this video as well. It should be pretty interesting.)
I'm not planning to leave him high-and-dry; I'm expecting to be learning some stuff as we go, too. He keeps talking about wanting to design his own games, so I wanted to be able to steer him toward some tools that would help him reach his goal.
Well, it looks like I'll be teaching one of my kids how to program.
To an extent, he's already familiar with some programming, as he's figured out how to program a TI calculator (not sure of the model, but it's in the 80s). Whether he understands the instructions he gives his calculator or not, I don't know. He'll know far more when I'm done.
I have several invitations, if you're interested. That would allow you to play around with it and see what you think.
I'm fairly interested in it because it seems to be a repository of sorts for GPG/PGP keys and stuff like that. (It is NOT a password storage tool like keypass!) I'm constantly forgetting my GPG key on a server that gets shutdown and re-purposed, and that could eventually be a Bad Thing.
...to me, at least.
Does anyone else have experience with keybase.io ?
I was given an invitation to it. I've signed in and set up a couple things, but I haven't had much else to do with it so far.
I'm curious to see what others think of it. Your thoughts?
One dollar for the program. Okay. That's bragging rights.
How much is the support contract?
There are, of course, the legal ramifications (*cough*FourthAdmendment*cough*) regarding seizure without a court's say in the matter. (IANAL, etc, etc...)
There is also the fact that those that really cared about this site probably know the site's IP, and with that in hand, who cares what they do with the domain? Add the IP to your local
I'm pretty sure at this point that the RIAA (and MPAA for that matter) spend far more in legal fees from their delusions than they actually make in profits.
Okay... A couple weeks ago, I decided to take another look at Python-- the first such look I've given the language since around 1997.
So far, I have the basic stuff down. I've got a quick script down that provides functions to add ANSI colors to my output, so I have that going for me.
I have Python 2.x on a VM on my work system, but I'm using Python3 on my home system.
Lessig seems to forget that this country is not, nor has it ever been, a "democracy". This nation has always been a Republic.
The rules in place that he describes as "fixed" are an attempt (however feeble) at preventing the balance of power from being held by any one part of the country. Who would really enjoy it, for example, if California got choose presidents all by itself, simply because they had more people than most other states? (Yes, I'm quite aware that a few other states on the East Coast also have a lot of people, but at this writing, California has more Representatives in Congress, and therefore more Electoral votes, than any one of them.)
Besides that... His choices for VP would be Elizabeth "Hoaxahontas" Warren and Bernie "Socialism or bust" Sanders? Please.
That's probably just as well...
