Comment: router-ready DNS UPDATE client (Score 1) 223 223

Shameless plug: I wrote dudders, a DNS UPDATE client a few years ago for basically this purpose. It only supports SIG(0) rather than TSIG (but public key authentication is cool, right?), but I had it running on my OpenWRT-based router happily (unfortunately nsupdate wouldn't fit).

Seems to imply Cassidy had the property under surveillance, and sounds threatening to me. The last one is just your example with more innuendo.

Abstinence and marital fidelity are the only effective methods that can stop this deadly trend. In fact, in light of the scientific and historical evidence, it is gross negligence bordering on manslaughter to promote "sex education" as a cure when millions suffer from the effects of this "civilised" education.

Actually, public health policy based solely on abstinence has not been shown to be effective.; it has a failure rate at a population level.

"They certainly have done due dilligence."

Is shipping the data to a country where it is known that you run an increased risk of agencies and interested 3rd parties taking a peek at the data 'due diligence'? Is that a 'reasonable' action in protecting the privacy of individuals and the execution of commercial contracts guaranteeing that privacy?

What if you zipped it up and put it on a public website with a readme.txt that said "don't download this"?

I don't have any particular knowledge about the increased accessibility of data in the US versus the EU, but it seems to me if you knowingly increased the exposure of the data that you're contractually meant to be keeping private, that might be a breach.

No, the inference devices in Wolpert's paper can be as simple as answering yes/no questions about the worldline. Essentially there always exists a question that can't be answered by a device from within that worldline. That "future we end up in" can be defined as a paradox and hence not exist.

Work without a vision is slavery, Vision without work is a pipe dream, But vision with work is the hope of the world.
