Great - I had never heard about this. It looks managable - bit expensive but without the risks of the laser procedure.

I don't understand why the Ecuadorians don't make him a countryman and give him a diplomatic passport?
This will make it very easy to implicate *anyone* in a cybercrime by just planting the evidence on their computer/device as you are hacking it anyway.
Totalitarians, here we come!
...in the future you are being looked at as being crazy if you tell other people that you are still driving yourself.
"Seriously, how can you live with that - risking the life of others. Robot-Cars are much safer."
I concur - Dot matrix printers are the way to go. OKI and Epson still offer quite a good number of various models. They will for sure be around for some time as they are the only printer that can create carbon copies if needed in a single print (like for forms).
That's like teaching a jockey to ride a broom stick instead of a real horse because the staff needed to feed the horse has been too costly.
Now, where is the difference between a normal human being taking a pic of currrent happenings or the reporter?
There is none, anymore. Anyone can ride a broom stick, except the jockey might do it with a bit more skip-walking, but not really gaining an advantage.
Doesn't anybody find it curious that it looks in one of the shots that the holes go from the inside to out? How is that even possible? I mean, dents on the outside are reasonable but how did the ones (and there are several deep ones) on the inside happen?
It says that the morse code logo was animated but I never saw that - it seems pretty static to me while other logos are animating just fine. Anyone else? Any explanation?
I have been in the Open Source business for almost 10 years now and I am leading a big open source software project which is completely self-sufficient.
From my experience what you need to sell is not a 'Please open source this software because other will benefit from it' but a 'Please open source this software because YOU will profit from it - in the future'. Open sourcing a software is usually a bet on future option, like a stock option you are creating which needs constant nurturing.
Tell the customer that with a regular maintenance fee he might be able not only to help you support him (in case of problems/bugs/general support), but also will be able to extend it with possible new features with no additional costs (beyond that maintenance fee).
The 'do it for the public common good' is certainly weighing in on your suggestion but certainly a future investment and return is the key point. At least this worked for me/us. Usually if additional features happen they will be so happy and donate on top, too.
