Yeah. With a 96% vote. Nothing fishy about that... not at all...
If that's the best you've go then we're in a pretty good position really. If you've got to go digging that far back then you aren't terribly good at finding our faults. That much is certain.
> Why do you think 'Fascism' is bad?
The book burning is an obvious bad sign.
There's a wide gap between "you will work for free" and an expansive intellectual property regime that's worse than Robber Barons on the Rhine river where you get taxed every 5 feet for nothing.
NOBODY is even talking about "working for free" here. This is about stuff that is older than you are. The only people (potentially) making money are mooches.
Sophocles wants his cut.
> I have no idea where the idea came from that the music publishers didn't have to renegotiate contracts to get digital rights to the music.
For example: Def Leppard started cloning their 80s works in order to avoid getting a raw deal on them being published as MP3s. Clearly whatever contract they signed in the 80s managed to to be broad enough to cover a means of distribution that no one even dreamed up yet.
You can do that if you have a smart lawyer. You don't have to mention iTunes by name in 1983 or 1964.
Much like many men in his position, charity is just a public relations whitewash. This is expecially obvious when all of this occurs in their "retirement". Of course Gates didn't invent this idea, he swiped it from someone else.
> last I checked we were sticking our noses into Crimea situation
You mean the situation where we are a party to a treaty that says that Ukraine keeps it's borders intact in return for NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT?
You mean THAT situation?
Plenty of people choose to avoid the goldrush mentality of California. That's why most people live other places. There's just lots more of "everywhere else". So supply and demand works out in our favor.
Always TWO Sith there are...
Nope. Can't say that I've ever encountered this on VLC on any platform.
It's bad enough trying to push a mere 20G into the cloud.
I don't even want to think about how long 10TB would take.
It would probably be faster to take an array and WALK across the several states between my house and my mother's house.
I really have to wonder if any of you blithering mindless "cloud zealots" actually use any of this stuff.
> Until your house burns down.
OK. So who here has ever had their house burn down? ANYONE?
Once you've got more than one copy of something it's trivial for even the biggest technical rube to sneakernet it somewhere else. On the other hand, it's terribly cumbersome to copy much of anything into the cloud.
> Certainly not ease of access across multiple devices in and out of your own network or away from your own storage. Certainly not for backup, without investing in your own off-site recovery method.
Make a friend. Store it at his house.
Rent a safety deposit box.
Buy a fire safe.
Mail a copy to your mother's house.
The problem with "the cloud" is recovery speed. Upload speeds aren't that great either.
It is when compared to 10TB of local storage.
Nonsense. It's always cheaper to pay your own way. If you are "getting something for free" through an insurance company then they are necessarily going to want their cut. ANY payment is going to have it's own transaction overhead and THAT is not cheap.
$200 is still a trivial amount for an insurance claim and something that anyone with a lick of sense or mathematical savvy should avoid.
Stuff isn't free.
