Even if it's interfering with hams - Part 15 guys are the bottom of the rung. It really depends on what the nature of the interference is. A Florida man was fined because his well pump was interfering with local hams.
No, the NRA wants everyone to HAVE THE RIGHT to bear arms. Totally different.
So... catching up with Mac OSX? Sounds just like the
Did Postgres finally join every other database and implement cross-database queries? Call me when they join the new century. My experience with Postgres was that their management interfaces were toe-to-toe as bad as MySql's, no cross database queries, and things like sharding and master-slave had to be implemented in your software.
Or... allow anyone to email their senators without having to only be from their district (as there's a lot of committees, so by current rules only a few states get to determine energy policy for the whole frickin' US because they won't listen to anyone not from their district, but all bills have to go through committee and most don't make it out alive
They weren't activated, and the ones that were in use during the race (for coordination) were all evacuated and followed those orders (http://cqnewsroom.blogspot.com/2013/04/boston-marathon-update-all-hams.html)
You're more likely to find hams helping in inter-departmental capacity, where large-scale (this was so not large scale) events require coordination between multiple police and fire departments, hospitals, etc. This was a local situation where Boston Police (and to a point DHS) were involved, but no other agencies - they can usually handle talking on their own radios to themselves.
Lawsuit wouldn't happen - he lacks legal standing. Unless it's his PRIVATE network. If it's the company's network (which the article rather implys), then they company has standing, but not him (the employee).
Yes - this! Just because they don't want to rock the boat, doesn't make it not a federal crime! And if they decide they don't want to follow up on the legal violation, I would tell me boss that the hospital may not be pentesting officially - it could be a corrupt IT (or even non-IT) person testing their clients w/o the hospital management's knowledge. If it's a major hospital (which most seem to be, these days), there are serious repercussions for doing that to the hospital employee. I would probably block the IP at the firewall and if they complain let them know that, per YOUR standard operating policy, the IP was perm-banned due to a large number of attacks coming from an unauthorized source. I do at my place of business (of course, I'm the CTO and a business partner to boot, so I can make those decisions).
Uh, not if your whole network is virtualized. For example, I don't have a single real physical server running a real OS, we run a virtualization platform and run our public and private servers on the boxes, and a VM running a firewall to manage access.
As far as our laptops, those are in a whole 'nother office, with a separate firewall. But if I deploy something on amazon and want an OpenVPN connection back to other clusters of servers running in other data centers, yeah, I'm going to run pfSense on a VM.
I have to seriously disagree - I'm a part owner (largest minority share) in the startup I work at, I'm CTO, and I work my a** off. I get in at 9am, work through lunch much of the time, get "off" at 6pm, then go home, do dinner with the family, and half of my weeknights I go back to work. I work every other weekend. I have one intern, and I also play "Manager" of most of the company as well as my programming and other technical pursuits. I have to ensure salespeople are hitting their goals, working with them to set reasonable goals, and discussing with my other two partners when those goals aren't met. I am on the hook for a not insignificant percentage of the company's debt, so yeah, I'm gonna be pissed if people are slacking off and I'm paying out the nose for it.
Developers have been aware of this since the beginning! We have had access to this the whole time, some developers just don't care (or are in places where they don't have to remit sales tax).
Unless, of course, they are in the US of A, in which case they HAVE to calculate and pay sales tax back to the government. A brick and mortar store doesn't have this problem because for physical stores it's calculated based on where the store is, so they don't need to know where you live. But internet "stores" are taxed based on common "nexuses" between the seller (the app developer, NOT the marketplace) and the buyer (you). And Google's tax system is horribly incorrect - in CO I can have up to 6 common nexuses (City of Aurora, Arapahoe County, RTD District, Arts district, Football Stadium district and the State of Colorado), and they have yet to correctly keep enough taxes (so it comes out of my pocket since they can't do it right).
If it doesn't transmit, then strictly speaking it's not necessary. Just sayin'.
And then your local HOA (like mine) asks the Council to have the traffic department change the timing anyways.
Lots of VoIP companies appear to let you use any callerID you want, so you totally get to spoof your IP (to keep the analogy). We need the same fix that networks have - prohibit anyone from trunking an invalid callerID, make them register it, and ALL calls need to be logged so I, as a consumer, may call my phone company, get the name of the phone company the call originated from, and file an FTC complaint (and possible lawsuit) against them.
