Imagine if it was smart enough to work with you while driving. Highlight things coming out, or the road you're supposed to turn on when using GPS, keep a feeder of speed limits, and hold a clip of video for use in analyzing fault during accidents. Indicators around pedestrians, red lights, traffic control signs. Basically things to make you more aware of the road, instead of distract you from it. And the coup de grace: if you're in the driver's seat it blocks out the screen of your phone or tablet.
Presumably, if a company gets blacklisted, they will contact Google. Then Google will provide evidence that the unsubscribe requests were being ignored, in violation of federal law (CAN-SPAM Act). Then the company finds the customer that was ignoring it and removes them. And the internet gets a little cleaner.
It's because you're going around the choke point. You're doing 2 connections to go around the limited area. One to the endpoint of your VPN, and then through your VPN provider's connection to Netflix. It's like taking a different route to work than the shortest because the interstate is at a standstill. You might be smart enough to do it, but the automated routing protocol is not.
Multiple peers and shortest path routing. There's a path that is available to Netflix. Even if it's at 100%, it's the shortest path, so that's the one taken. Routing protocols generally don't take active load into account to redirect traffic around choke points through other, more expensive peers.
Yes, using a proxy would yield a faster connection, much like taking a feeder road to a different interstate may yield in shorter overall commute time based on traffic during your commute. Routing takes the shortest functional path, it largely doesn't take into account the percentage used and go to find a different path, it'll just try to continue using the shortest one. RIP, OSPF, IGRP all work that way. Using a proxy sets you up on two paths to follow: to get to the proxy and then from the proxy to the service. Unless the proxy is also on your provider, in which case, you're not helping.
Microsoft Office wouldn't even run on my main work desktop. It runs linux. As do most of my co-workers. Instead, some of us use LibreOffice or OpenOffice, some use Microsoft Office on Windows. I have yet to open a document and have it come out all messed up. Maybe I've just gotten lucky, but it's probably more likely the case that the vast majority of commonly used functions work just fine, and if there's the occasional almost-never-used function that doesn't work right, people avoid using it.
Pretty sure linux was meant for servers.
http://www.spacex.com/missions shows ORBCOMM sending up with spacex in a bit. That's private money. Loral is another one of their customers. Iridium has quite a few flights over the next few years. So, while a lot of their payloads are governmental now, not all are. And as they get their processes down, and their costs come with it, even more private companies will be launching with them. They're getting to a point where they plan to do weekly launches, and that's an economy of scale that will make it truly affordable.
Put SSH on port 443. Tunnel through for VNC.
Yeah, it took legislation to stop Tesla from selling in Texas. They were doing fine before that.
I think he's saying that if you're using up as much as you can afford, it's probably hypocritical to condemn someone else for living to their max. After all, you could also live at the level of many people who make it with much less.
I use 3 monitors on a daily basis for work. I haven't had an issue with it. Have you checked if PEBKAC?
If you allow developers to manage system security, you deserve the compromises you're going to get. You should have people trained in maintaining security maintaining your security. Especially in bigger organizations.
Or $55. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121836 You know. Whichever. It's fanless, and doesn't pull much power, so no special PSU either.
That'll do wonders for security.
