Actually the jury is in and industrial emissions and deforestation are guilty as charged. There is nothing more tiresome than a climate sceptic trotting out utterly debunked bullshit.
Your argument has been well and truly debunked.
Any photos in *your* Instagram feed, Flickr library, etc are not orphaned under the terms of this act as they are explicitly associated with a user account and, in the case of Flickr have one or more of several licenses already attached to them. The article is the usual Register FUD.
They'll just use it to mine Bitcoins I'm sure.
No special laws needed for this. If you earn $1 you pay income tax on it in most countries I'm sure. The govt doesn't care what currency you earn in. And capital gains are still capital gains, and thus taxable income, again, no matter the currency.
I've not heard anyone talking up Bitcoin as a means to evade legitimate taxes.
Surely that correlation only exists because belief in a god is a sign you need mental health treatment.
I believe in equality of opportunity rather than an artificial equality of outcomes.
I believe in human obligations not human rights.
Something given has no value.
I use GitHub for all of my projects, and for interaction with my clients, and I'm sure many other freelance developers are the same. While some of the projects I work on are set as public (I'll admit I don't usually bother putting any sort of license out there for those projects â" maybe if I wrote something useful I would) most of my projects contain client confidential info and are private. I suspect this is the same for many others.
I don't think this is some sort of slap in the face for Mr Stallman, but that, for most of us, we are just doing our jobs, and GitHub is an amazing tool enabling us to do them. Most developers don't think about Mr Stallman at all.
I'm backing this film, not because I give a damn about him filming on 35mm b/w stock, or because I care what video editing software he uses (he could use iMovie for all iCare), but because I loved the original book, the screenplay was what Harry Harrison and Alex Cox were working on when HH died, and I get a copy of both for US$25, while supporting the whole crowd-sourced film-making concept.
Any Mac can have a Guest account enabled that gets nuked again when the guest logs out. We do this all the time. When a guest arrives without their own machine they are welcome to use the Guest account on the MacMini that's plugged into the TV. We can use the FastUser Switching to flick it back to my, or my wife's account, as needed, without logging the guest out, but when they leave we just log them out and voila - the Guest account is wiped.
Without wishing to seem pedantic, there is no *@gmail.au — if anything it would be *@gmail.com.au but I've never known anyone to have that; only *@gmail.com, or in the UK *@googlemail.co.uk.
âoeWhen new violations are found, Apple requires its suppliers to return the workers back to a school chosen by the family and finance their education. "In addition, the children must continue to receive income matching what they received when they were employed. We also follow up regularly to ensure that the children remain in school and that the suppliers continue to uphold their financial commitment," wrote Apple in its latest report.â
Sorry to rain facts on your parade.
I've travelled all over the world and the state of mobile phone services in the USA is about the worst I have come across, especially for a short-term tourist who just wants a cheap pre-paid SIM with a data plan for their iPhone. Neither AT&T, nor Verizon could offer me a SIM at all claiming I had to buy a locked phone in order to get one, and all t-Mobile could offer me was a very expensive pre-paid SIM with connection to an Edge network only, no 3G or 4G. Compare this to most EU countries where you can buy prepaid SIMs from vending machines that come with 3G and 4G out of the box, or even Cambodia (and indeed most Asian countries) where for about US$10 you can buy a SIM from one of a dozen services as soon as you get off the plane with 2GB of 3G data built in. In Australia it's illegal for a telco to NOT unlock your phone on request, most places will sell you an unlocked phone directly if you like, and as a tourist most airports will sell pre-paid SIMs with 3G and 4G data plans quite cheaply. But in the USofA it's all vendor lock-in, restricted access, crappy coverage and shitty treatment for those of us who like to visit every now and again to visit friends unfortunate enough to live there, and take advantage of the shitty dollar to buy cheap clothes. Land of the free my arse.
Agreed. Peterson was ex Chaosium and knew how to design games. Doom 2 was way better than Doom 3. That game infected my dreams back in the 1990s
This looks to me to be the single most disgusting invention I've ever seen. Surely it's easier to just eat smaller meals rather than gorge, then pump partially digested food out through a pipe through your gut. I guess it tops the Segway as stupidest invention ever.
