I have kids. I think of them. I have no need for these backdoors Eric Holder wants. I know what my kids do and who is with them. Please stop the "think of the children" excuses for these intrusions.
Microsoft is still so divorced from its customer base
Divorced? Some of us prefer a retraining order...
Yeah..funny seeing as my Slashdot ID is older than 15 years...
im happy letting google think my sole function in life is to play plants vs zombies.
Don't you get it? You're not supposed to tell Google the truth in a shell account...
Putin revealing his masterplan of placing a giant laser on the moon and having a maniacal laugh...
Nothing James Bond can't fix...where is Roger Moore these days...
The vote was a 55-45 margin...and conducted in a safe manner without much in the way to dispute. No reason for riots nor civil war. I also don't think enough was on the line for anyone in Scotland to feel motivated to take up arms. Remember northern Ireland and the IRA? How did that work out for the common person?
I have altered the agreement...pray I do not alter it further...
wondering if there'll be any Russian gas coming this time around to keep me warm
Not sure where to go with that one...
A thousand times, this.
I never thought any good would ever come from the distribution companies owning the content companies...and I turned out right.
A VPN? That's hiding internet traffic from them, which is precisely their problem with Tor.
I am sure most office workers and many small businesses are going to have a problem if Comcast starts blocking vpn traffic. Then again, use an SSL vpn instead of IPSec and I don't see how they could block it.
Easy, because one of 3 things:
1. It is too expensive and no one wants to budget for it.
2. I.T. is severely understaffed and forced to work in reactive mode, not proactive mode.
3. They have the security in place, but it is so complex and covering such a large architecture, it is not well-monitored nor maintained for fear of breaking something.
This being the US federal government, there are probably about 100 different contracted companies for all the various parts of and pieces, with no federal IT employees overseeing any of it.
Since Crimea? Honestly, Putin has been using force for some time now. He invaded and pacified Chechnya, followed by an incursion into South Ossetia...with a followup into the rest of Georgia. Now, he is in Ukraine. I suppose for an encore...Armenia, Belarus better beware. The Baltics are in the best shape...they are NATO members.
That's what they WANT you to think...
NAACP, N.O.W., G.L.O.W.
What does the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling have to do with this?
It seems too many forget that all this virtualization still runs on physical servers. Those physical servers still need hardware upgrades, monitoring, and resource management (especially when one starts oversubscribing). I don't get why people keep thinking hardware went away. Instead of lots of 1U servers, now you have big iron running lots of virtual servers.
