The FBI's abandoning its primary task of watching the watchers and instead invading the privacy of every American is PRECISELY why Google's and Apple's taking a stand is needed.
Now with the FBI sucking up to Congress rather than scrutinizing them and instead continuing to defile our constitutional rights, who is left to watch the watchers? That WAS the job of the FBI.
Sorry had postfix on the brain from work.
CUPS was horrible then, but Linux printing in general was about 15,000x times more horrible with LPD/LPR being the standard and leaving you with pretty much the choice between a postfix printer (which was pretty pricey until the mid-'00s) or an Epson dot matrix printer. There were a handful of print solutions but they were either very expensive or totally sucked.
CUPS made printing on Linux mostly painless.
No, but it is heading in that direction, if you run the Gnome desktop (why would you do that to yourself anyhow?); see gconf
Also, check out systemd. That's going to be fun to administer. >_<
> I had a Sonata CPU case with a pair of blinding blue LEDs
I have that same case, and the light aimed directly at my face when trying to sleep! A dab of purple nail polish dimmed it right down.
When OLEDs get a little cheaper you'll find that some stupid manufacturer will make the entire front of the device an ultra-bright blue OLED "off" indicator sheet.
> I think SSRI's (& others pharmaceuticals like it) are extremely dangerous. I would rather them be prescribed Indica or Sativa depending on the need...
That is unfortunately not an option for everyone, since employers are still discriminating against cannabis use thanks to decades of lies from Uncle Sam.
> Now, you seem to be hinting that the SSRI made you smarter (i.e. gave you clarity). But that's unlikely for a variety of reasons. Instead, it most likely made you feel smarter, more confident, etc. And maybe that's what you meant - that you had a unrealistically pessimistic view of the world and the SSRI caused you to have a less pessimistic view of the world.
Maybe he is confusing SSRIs with shrooms and/or LSD?
> that schizophrenia itself has a bit of a split personality.
Schizophrenia is when you hear "god" telling you to kill that actress.
DID is when at times you really believe you are god, then a moment later you believe you're a receptionist at a law firm, then you believe you're a construction worker - and your personalities may or may not know one another and be friends. It's a really messed up condition - I had a friend with DID once and it was unnerving because I'd wonder who I would be talking to next time I'd see her. More recently I've encountered someone I've been chatting online with who at times insists she is Hathor, the ancient Egyptian goddess, and other times insists she is a different "god" and other times she is just her. Now, she could just be trolling people online but I really do think she genuinely has DID. It's a very strange condition.
There goes Apple, innovating, er, I mean copying Samsung again. Two or three years ago Samsung reportedly had run similar tests with sapphire screens and found large sapphire panels to be too brittle.
Incidentally, I purchased the iPhone 6 last year, when it was known as the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Meanwhile, other providers are testing 10_G_bps FTTD (fibre to the desktop) for deployment, because they see the future isn't in cable TV but in providing TCP/IP (Internet, basically) connectivity. That is 10x the bandwidth any one PC you can buy off the shelf can handle without adding in a 10GbE server network card. Yes, ten GIGABITS PER SECOND over epon/dpon.
AT&T and Comcrap are just whining and clawing because they know the future is here (streaming video on demand from providers that are NOT THEM) and they don't want it. They should do what my employer is doing and embrace the ISP side of the business as their meat and potatoes and treat cable video as gravy. Cable TV is not only a zero-growth industry, but a dying industry.
". If somebody is using GPL code and refuses to issue source, it's cut and dried, guilty."
If you implement a web server, an e-commerce service, or anything involving = GPLv2-based projects but you do not distribute the binaries then you are under NO obligation to release the source code. That requirement only arises if you DISTRIBUTE binaries derived from the = GPLv2-licensed source code.
GPLv3 changes things a bit but that doesn't seem to be the issue here.
Firefox is becoming a real pain in the ass when it comes to certs. I can see displaying a "ZOMG!!! WARNING!!!" when trying to load a low-bit cert, but it fails completely, which makes it unusable for managing more and more enterprise appliances, some of them being brand new. One could go to each and every appliance and LOM module and generate a new high-bit cert but if you've got enough of them in your data center it's a royal pain in the ass to do so.
The solution? Use any browser other than firefox.
