I know, I was being serious for once! Actually learning something on Slashdot, what's the world coming to
The Ec onomist was around in 1860? The more you know!
Don't forget remove all icons except Skype!
Fair enough, but then if he had the image in his Gmail, did Google not possess the image themselves before he downloaded, I guess you can add distributing across state lines for ha-has. Or if he placed them there did he ever download them after they knew what was in it, as in did they knowingly distribute? Not trying to be a troll, genuinely curious where the law stands on this. For further thought, how can you get around this kind of surveillance with tech? Is some sort of decentralized cloud storage needed or even feasible?
How is he in "possession" of these images? Isn't the data on Google's servers, as in their actual physical possession? Not like they kicked down his door and found it on a Google Mail server in his closet.
might even get probation if it's your first offense, especially with a good lawyer.
Fourth sentence in TFS clearly explains it. "So, it's not too surprising to see the [Google Chair Eric] Schmidt Ocean Institute (SOI) postÂ...."
I couldn't care less if these come to market, unless they come with a law banning traditional firearms.
beaverdownunder (1822050) writes "Victoria Australia's Taxi Directorate has begun a crackdown on Melbourne Uber drivers, fining them $1700 each for operating a taxi service illegally, with total fines apparently equalling over $50000. In response, Uber has shut down its Melbourne service, and has refused to comment on whether its drivers will be compensated, since Uber told them they were providing a legal service. (Fined Uber drivers could take the company to the state's consumer tribunal: stay tuned!) Uber is set to meet with the Directorate next week but it is likely the demands the Directorate will place on Uber drivers, such as mandatory criminal record checks, vehicle inspections and insurance, will make the service in Melbourne unviable. Meanwhile, the New South Wales government is awaiting a report to determine if Uber drivers operating in that state are doing so illegally, warning that drivers could face substantial fines if they are found to have been operating in breach of the law. In South Australia, it doesn't even appear Uber will get off the ground — the state has made it clear that those who operate as an Uber driver will be driving without being covered by the state's mandatory insurance coverage, essentially de-registering their vehicle and making them liable for fines and license suspension."
Settle down, Beavis- the impression I get from this is post-snowden, aka after Snowden has revealed what pieces of shit are government actually are (confirmed might be more accurate for some) people are willing up to the fact that yes, they really are watching us and adjusting their search habits accordingly. I wouldn't say 'blame' as much as 'give proper credit to'.
Simple, the pressure doesn't equalize until the water inside the cylinder rises to the level of the water outside; then the pump just sucks the water right off the top of the inside of the cylinder, lowering the inside level and forcing more water through the membrane.
I'd have thought he went in each day with wheelbarrow full of 1.44" floppies and just copied until he got it all... That's some mighty fine detective work, Lou.
Long ago, shortly after completing Roger Penrose's "the Emperor's New Mind", so the subject matter was still turning over in my head, I had the idea while half asleep that all existence was a hugely infinite array of potentials and possibilities, and that among countless permutations was a single particular configuration, that included the physical constants as we know them and the world line of each individual particle, that fit together in such a way to perfectly describe the physical universe as we know it, and as a conscious virtual being in this universe, considering the notions of which I am writing, OBSERVES the truth of the ideas he just had, collapsing the wavefunction and bringing into physical being, well, everything. I love when books carry into the half awake half dream state!
