that's not the only protection in that zone.
if they try that they are isolated from the entire network until the username/pass is entered for the network.

point is. if you aren't in the whitest you can connect to a low quality Internet access an file box for sharing movies and music. but anything "personal" is on a seperate network.

a bit like the cable companies do on their routers. only with file sharing.

lots of ways to do it. but my point is people should already be running at least two networks anyway. one for them and their devices and one for guests.

Much better plan imho is to just use a MAC address whitelist to "opt out"

I've been doing this for some time. "my" wifi, high bandwidth, load balancing, access to filesharing has the one whitelist.

If you aren't on that whitelist you get dropped into a virtual lan, with shared 150kBs max up/down bandwidth and a piratebox.

If it was just a case of the Gs being "artificially limited", it would just be a case of limiting them less so they aren't out manoeuvred by the now ancient F16.

This sounds more like the widely reported fundamental problem with the engines and aerodynamics.

This is especially a problem when Russia has already overcome the engine problems on its already highly manoeuvrable airframe.

my take.
killer blow is around page 443.
Some "Yoo" memorandum declares it legal.
There is then a chain of new people who come in thinking its not legal.

Then on page 443, Philbin goes into full legal explanation of why it was illegal. (mostly blacked out in the public release afaics)

then you missed the bit about the us getting involved and requesting his arrest shortly before he was granted asylum.

and if that is all they needed to do. then the 10s of millions of dollars they have spent on policig waiting for him to come out is definately criminal.

What part of the police force surrounding him for the last couple of years and the UK justice system attempting to violate international law by invading another country to get him out makes you think when they actually get hold of him they'll be sending him to Sweden?

so the only crime he is accused of is not going home to Sweden?

so they can send him to the us.

to be executed.

for publishing the collateral murder video.

sounds like he's a political refugee to me.

but none of that explains what crime he is supposed to have committed in the UK to be on bail there in the first place. in order to be a fugative from UK justice like you said.

you seem convinced he is a fugative from UK justice.
what part of UK justice are you referring to specifically?

he's not a fugitive from justice.
he's a political refugee.

the judges can't listen to him because it is their politics he is running from.

we should get a list of the judges that withdrew from the conference so we know who's decisions deserve challenging for being morally corrupt.

conference attendees were obviously better off without their presence anyway.

I've been counting the days till hilly declares wwiii.

that bastard Obama got in the way last time round and made people care about things like healthcare and poor people.

when we all know what the world needs is a good war to kill all the stupid people and make room for us all to live in peace.

violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.

This is clearly another case of too many mad scientists, and not enough hunchbacks.
