I was thinking about upgrading and figured I'd wait until the S6 was available, but those two flaws make it a deal breaker.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
At some point, having a server (like Linode) becomes well worth it. As long as you have a network connection, you can connect to your one development box.
The feds have been putting pressure on banks to stop taking accounts for businesses they do not approve of. So far, they've gone after accounts of the porn industry and gun stores. I fully expect them to target tobacco stores in the near future. They do this by suggesting to the bank that they would find it necessary to conduct thorough and repeated audits if the banks work with "less than desirable" businesses.
And it would be trivial to keep any "clean" account(s) they have on a separate IP,
Trivial, perhaps... but over time it's easy to slip and use an IP that's more traceable to you, which is why I said to publish all of the IP's that handle has posted from.
I can see some appeal to that, but surely any sane leaker will post using a restaurant's free wifi or similar - meaning their doxing gets associated with any other innocent user who happens to have posted updates from that restaurant, with no apparent link to their own isolated accounts?
Personally, I'd probably use the free wifi at the railway station on my daily commute - indeed, I do use it most days, for innocent purposes - or if I wanted to do something that might be traced, ride an hour or so on one of the lines and use another station on the network, using a randomised MAC address on a laptop. Anyone who was identified as associated with me then is completely uninvolved. Yes, maybe you'd catch a few low-level trolls, but you'd be falsely smearing a whole lot of innocent third parties - making the identification worthless anyway.
(I don't, my hands get frozen already when it's below 10 degrees C (50 F?).
For warmer weather (10C is warmer), get some good gloves. For colder weather (around -10C) buy some pogies. Here's a good brand.
(I envy your nice weather in Norway. Its just my luck that my ancestors left for somewhere that was actually colder.
Ask any police officer or health care provider how people act during the full moon. They will almost always tell you that they are busier and people are crazier around that time of the month - consistently - although they can't quite explain why.
Confirmation bias. I've heard the same thing from nurses, but the fact is, no correlation has been found.
There have been studies showing it messes with a good nights sleep. Your own link even admits that, Lack of sleep does tend to make people a little crazier.
> Pilots with Bank of America and Deloitte have led to significant business improvements
Such as? Were they tweaks to processes that further objectify employees? Or did they improve the environment, thus inspiring employees to higher levels of achievement?
You don't consider the threat of being shot and then having your property taken a violent crime? The fact the weapon turned out to not be able to shoot bullets doesn't matter, nor should it.
Assume a criminal has either the choice of a BB gun or a regular gun to commit a crime with.
In scenario A, the BB gun is considered a lesser offense than robbing someone with a regular firearm.
In scenario B, the BB gun is considered the same as robbing someone with a regular gun.
Under which scenario do you assume that more people are held up with weapons that are actually capable of killing them? In which scenario are more crime victims shot?
Being tough on crime sounds good, but it can have unintended consequences.
What makes you think openbsd hasn't been corrupted by some third party? Just because of the size of the target? Even squirrels get shot for food, and that's a small target. You are betting on security thru obscurity, not a safe bet.
Silly goose - haven't you heard? FreeBSD is the cure to all problems. To the point where you can say you have a bunion on your foot, yup, FreeBSD will fix that for ya. It's like a modern washday miracle!
Well you see FreeBSD does everything you need, so there's no need to stand up ever again. So the bunion on your foot won't matter.
The manufacturer is under investigation. No surprise then that it lead to some illness
UCLA claims they were doing de-con per the manufacturer's recommendations. They've changed it now, which is encouraging. But had they gone off book from the start, they'd be just as liable to infect people for NOT following instructions.
