welcome to our political/economic reality.
you have two options.
Be paid up with the right people
Fail in a public forum (Texas in this case) as a result of not being paid up with the right people and hope for political pressure to get you through.
Tesla i feel has the option to go either way, but I applaud them taking the high road, pun intended, here.
The real problem only arises when you can't afford either option. In which case you just might be reaching for a larger market than you as a company can support.
Not saying it's the best system, or even sufficiently "good" to pass most tests for "ok". but it's been this way since the beginning.
Tesla v Edison
North v South
Ford v the automobile industry
blah blah blah
I might be alone in this, but if a law/decision is made that limits a person, group of people, company, or business model there needs to be safety or environmental reasons for it or IMO it is based on personal rhetoric or personal gain. Of course, in this world gone mad, finding someone to say that allowing direct to consumer marketing is killing children and polluting the gene pool is pretty easy. So who you are paying shifts... then what?
Seriously? What bank has that setup?
you can distract the "security" team until the cows come home (even having just 1 "security" team.. that could be distracted is a bit.. odd here)
this is where having specialist in security are required for doing business. Layered defense.
the security team dealing with the DDOS and the security team watching the wire transfer systems should have been alerted when their respective domains were affected.
then when money starts going to the wrong places, a wire fraud team would be involved. if the money was coming from business accounts vs personal accounts, vs high value accounts, vs what have you.. each of those respective fraud and security teams would be working towards their own mitigation.
no.. these had to be small banks/credit unions without a proper layered defense.. OR a very very serious APT/collusion attack.
I had to ask myself: Why Sharks? Why not honey badgers? It didn't take long to figure out though that, unlike the sharks, honey badgers wouldn't wait for your call. They don't give a shit, they'd just launch the missiles and go eat a snake, they don't give a shit what happens next.
pretty close to that
it's a good thing that all combatants wear uniforms and can be asked after they were blown up if they were a threat, because you know if not, a government might just have to report them as civilians because well, they wouldn't harbor TOO many people that might not like the US, that'd be like asking to have your palace/estate/mcmansion raided by SEALS or something.
We are where we are because every civilian in the world has watched and allowed it to happen, right back to fighting the "cold war" in the region(and far beyond that, but im trying to be region specific).
Not saying i'm for randomly shooting up a building full of people because there are a few confirmed combatants in there either, but politics are a bitch, and if the tables were turned we (US citizens) would have to bear the responsibility of letting our government go so freaking nuts I'm sure.
but if it's encrypted and used in that manner, it's harder to prove it wasn't you(despiste being just as easy to use in said manner). Leave it open, that way you've always got the "someone stole my wifi!" scapegoat.
when filtered incorrectly...
Although a CDC report went out to state health officials in April encouraging them to take concerted action, the warning went largely unnoticed and nothing has been done. The public did not even learn of the outbreak until June, after a man with an active case of TB was spotted in a Jacksonville soup kitchen.
The Palm Beach Post has managed to obtain records on the outbreak and the CDC report, though only after weeks of repeated requests. These documents should have been freely available under Florida’s Sunshine Law."

In a now hallmark style, he made the offer on Twitter.
"Hey DOJ, we will go to the US," he tweeted, "No need for extradition. We want bail, funds unfrozen for lawyers & living expenses."
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Dotcom says the department knows it does not have a case.
"If they are forced to provide discovery, then there will be no extradition. That's why they don't want to provide discovery. If they had a case, they would not need to hide what they have.""

dunno anything bout this 80/20 rule, but I can say, I went from dumb ass it job to dumb ass it job watching the people that wanted to learn the tech out pace those that wanted to "do their job".
When i started at the last of those jobs, on my second day I was handed a "new" tablet pc and asked if i could "make it work" with our image. I said I'd give it a shot. A few years later that same manager hired me to do technology research for his team. I'm pretty happy with it.
Be there, do what you can, and don't write checks you can't cash. If it's good, someone will pick up on it.
well crap, I've been spelling it wrong the whole time.. no wonder it never works like it should
VLC is one of those impressive programs that just works with nearly any input thrown at it, [...].
Or what we, in the Linux community, call "software"*. ^^
* after all required dependancies are hunted down from the ends of the earth and/or compiled from source and installed.
no that was pre 9/11
the first amendment now only covers advertising.
seriously, there is a give and take. I hadn't really connected the dots on what all of this info meant until I met with microsoft research.. some of the really cool stuff they are doing, they can only do because they have systems in place that will collect a STUPID amount of data. regardless of if it's immediately apparent that it'll be needed.
you just can't allow a computer to make correlation and causation decisions without having the massive amount of info available to it.. that we as humans (with our fancy sensor arrays) take for granted.
