I did not say I made unlicensed content, I just said it was becoming the only sound and reasonable choice. Nowadays when I here modern music and auto tune all I hear is the greed and it really is off putting, so my preferred choice is to not listen at all. Every now and again I might listen to some old content but that is to recapture the emotions recalled with specific memories associated with that content, rather than listening to the music and I really don't do that much either. Other than that maybe some bargain bin diving where their reward is absolutely minimal. Of all things I am most enjoying https://archive.org/details/ol..., it is really quite fun to listen to when going for a constitutional, walk that is.
Now, when I read stuff like this.. a little bird whispers in my ear: parallel construction.
What's more likely, Wint's DNA was recovered from a pizza crust in a burning home, or law enforcement just happens to know where Wint's cellphone was during the time in question?
The shake down is already occurring in the PR bullshit associated with the story. The people targeted are not down loaders, they were torrenting hence they were uploaders, that is a huge distinction which main stream media in Australia is purposefully and corruptly distorting.
As for iinet turning to crap, it is inevitable. TPG is simply paying more for iinet than it is worth and to get that money back they will offshore and cripple support and services. This will create a hole in the market for other companies to exploit as users inevitably leave after the first undecipherable support call.
Some other things they could also add, temporary download cache for latter viewing rather than streaming (for connections crippled by government and incumbent telecoms corruption) and blocking of annoying crap uploaders so they never again appear in search results (all to often search results spew the same asshats because at one stage the got ahead in the numbers and simply stayed there as a result pissing everyone off with crap content).
The memes that have been created are clever too, "I don't normally take over C-Span2, but when I do -people watch C-Span2." Of course, the expected #StandWithRand and posting selfies with people actually watching C-Span2.

Yep, so far all they have done is to quite successfully promote the documentary. I had not heard about it till now.
So far they have only pretended to raise the minimum wage, plenty of time to cancel everything. So feel good politics only, typical PR exercise. They might as well have voted to raise the minimum wage to $1,000 an hour -------------- by 2120. Just as meaningless.
Which is why you tend to limit it to minor fines, a simple network traffic authority and for more severe crimes you escalate it to a full investigation by other authorities. It means a lot of current major felonies in terms of computer and network crimes drop to misdemeanour's and fines but they are much more readily applied, in much the same context as a speeding fine or a parking fine. So an administrative regulatory authority. The main feature being skilled people who can keep up with computer crimes and network crimes and computer forensics. They provide a place for the ready reporting of spam, phishing attacks, spy ware reports, forum spamming, virus and trojan reporting etc.. The fines could be quite severe for repeated offences.
Last year I was looking into getting either a Raspberry Pi or Beaglebone Black. BBB had a newer ARM rev for the CPU, so it can run more kinds of OS. But the RPi has the removable flash as its drive, so you can easily load whatever OS image you want, change OSs by switching flash chips, and if you hose it too badly you can take it out and reload, without worrying about whether you've bricked the board. Also, the specs at the time said the RPi had a better GPU, and could do 1080p at 60 Hz vs. only 30Hz for BBB, which means I can plug it into TVs and monitors without as much flicker. I chose the RPi.
BBB nominally costs a bit more, but by the time you buy cases and power supplies and flash and such, it pretty much balances out.
It's difficult to be "clever" in Java
To the contrary, Java's lack of expressiveness resulted in people writing tons of external XML files, code generators, DI frameworks, and build tools to glue the whole mess together. Instead of small, judicious bits of cleverness in the main language/runtime, it's been pushed to very clever tools on the periphery that come with relatively large learning curves. That's not really a win from the readability standpoint.
Just now I couldn't load Slashdot at all, not even the main page!!
... but I'm kind of glad we have people looking at these ridiculous scenarios and planning how to deal with them *just in case*
Those motherfucking assholes are the real life version of the keystone kops --- They always do the wrong thing
Had the assholes really know their stuffs that British soldier Lee Rigby would still be alive today
And the London tube wouldn't have been bombed
Can you imagine the dystopian dictatorship where trekkies come to power? All of the halls of power full of people walking around in spandex and fake ears and brow ridges, the fed directed to work toward the absolution of currency, the military directed to accelerate development of phasers and for all recruits to undergo "Kobayashi Maru" training.... NASA would finally get their proposed $18,5 billion dollar annual budget passed - except that the bill would have the word "annual" crossed out and the word "monthly" written in its place. National anti-bullying legislation would be passed, probably with a name like Spock's Law. And of course they'd insist on referring to the UN as the United Federation of Planets.
The telecom company confirmed that it had not been aware of the hack when it signed the deal in December 2014
Does that mean had Telstra know anything about the hack the deal wouldn't have gone through?
