Yep, that's exactly what I do. I know exactly what's going on with my data, and if its insecure, I know its my own dang fault.
>everyone in calif is required to have auto insurance, so THAT's a total non-argument about ride-sharing.
"Required to have auto insurance" is very different from "actually has auto insurance". The roads are filled with uninsured drivers. Also, just because they have personal insurance does not mean they have commercial insurance, and personal insurance will not cover your (or your friend's) ass if your friend is using his vehicle commercially.
So yes, contrary to your thinking, proper insurance is indeed an argument. And Uber, etc, are not offering a "ride sharing service". They are taking "Paid taxi service" and adding "ordered by phone app" to the description. If it quacks like a duck...
Electricity for the machines is not free. And supercomputers take a lot of that. Unless you have free electricity, bitcoin is at the point where its almost impossible to mine it and break even in less than 9 months to a year or so.
Thanks for the URL...wish I had mod points this week. That wooshing noise you just heard was me running 'wget'
Until such time as the iSEC audits turn up an actual problem, I'll keep using 7.1a as usual.
So, is Greenwald gonna share any of the money with Snowden, or is he just going to laugh all the way to the bank while Snowden rots in Russia.
We've had untrained monkeys in the US for President and Vice President for the last 13 years. And they've been used in Congress longer than that.
From the summary: "The prospects for the climate fund are uncertain in a Republican-controlled House".
There's no uncertainty about it. Anyone with five or more brain cells to rub together can tell you that this will never pass in the House. In fact, I doubt it will even get out of committee to be debated on the floor, much less come up for a House vote.
But...if he did not register the copyrighted photos, he can only go for actual damages. He cannot get anything "punitive".
You might be making a joke. But I'll step up and admit that when I first saw "gTar", that's exactly what I thought it would be.
Other than maybe the part where it connects to a smartphone instead of a computer, this is certainly not the first, and not even new. Fretlight ( http://fretlight.com/ ) has been doing it for years. The only place this is anything new is in gTar's imagination.
Right now the members of Congress could not agree that the earth is round, the sky is blue, and the sun is the center of the solar system.
"when will the public finally demand that communications which pass encrypted through a third party still retain an reasonable expectation of privacy (rendering them pen register order-resistant)?"
As soon as NSA spying prevents them from watching "Dancing With the Stars" and "Honey Boo Boo".
I hear a lot of tough talk in here. And in theory, I agree with a some of it. But in reality, I have to wonder how many of you would continue that tough talk if it were YOU being questioned or served with a secret warrant by the NSA or any other federal three-letter organization. I'd be willing to bet money that 90 percent of you would wilt like a daisy dropped in Death Valley.
And I think what you mean is you were unaware that the United States was practicing espionage against other countries even before it was the "United States" during the Revolutionary War. There has never been a time that this country hasn't been spying on others. And the same goes for European countries.
And I would make the same statements regarding spying on its own citizens.
