I came across some nekkid Klingon chicks a few years back... Need the link?
Not slashdot's fault... This is news from around 2009!
Yeah, but a business owner that receives one of those letters is still going to fear going to court... If it were me, I'd fear the size and integrity of the trolls in question. What if the suit takes MANY months or years? I still have to pay lawyers in the meantime... When I DO come out victorious, how long will it be before a patent troll is on the up-and-up and pays the fees in question? Or will they just disappear into the night via some fakey bankruptcy or dissolution by a parent company?
I don't know a lot of about fusion, but I've read Helium is a byproduct of fusion reactions. Once these things start getting run more and more, will we be able to harvest the helium generated to stave off the coming shortages?
Looks interesting. Wouldn't it have been cool if his character's name had been Edward Lyle (Enemy of the State)
This is the part I don't get. You're right. Isn't it pretty well spelled out in the EULA's that you're giving away your right to name your first born, let alone any "privacy" in the email? Add to that the fact that the feds recently said, "screw you, you don't have any expectation of privacy on these email accounts because the servers aren't under your direct control." Wiretapping implies surveillance without knowledge... In a lot of states only one party need know their call is being monitored to make it legal.
I'm not sure what to think... I'm in Pensacola, and I'm seeing job listings for IT personnel that by all rights should be a minimum of 60K (VMWare Hypervisor and all other IT tasks, including database admin.)... Offering 30.
Verizon's smartphones are already unlocked... ATT will unlock as soon as we've paid for the devices in full.
I'm probably over-generalizing.... A mandate like this is going to prompt them to find a way to screw us over. Remember what happened with the portable numbers? We all ended up with a $1.75 "regulatory recovery fee" on our bills for quite a while.
Let them crimp some RJ45's onto cat5.
I've had to do a lot of site surveys and have seen literally hundreds of lists with 30-40 SSID's each...
The two that stand out most were
"NachoNet" and "GrumpysRevengeNetwork"
"...feet wrapped in leathery burnt bacon."
New host? Are you going for some sort of super-deluxe, double-catch-22 in reference to the word new?
Yeah, I miss Art Bell a lot. I liked Barbara Simpson, on the weekends, several years ago, too. I haven't listened in over a year, since our cumulus station switched to Red-Eye Radio. It sounds like it's gotten worse? Does he still have Ed Dames and Steve Quayle?
I bet a shiny quarter that somewhere in the agreement, Apple gets a break on the 1-click purchase license that Amazon got the patent on way back when. Apple was among the first, if not the first, to license that farce for their store online.
I'm surprised it's come to this. I was sure that when I went back and read the summary more carefully, it was going to be Australia or the UK, not Austin, TX.
Who in their right mind viewed that as a credible threat?
I won't shop in a Barnes & Noble or a Booksamillion anymore because of the constant upselling at the register. If I say no thanks, and I'm not interested even ONCE, I don't need to hear the 60 second speech they have memorized.
