I don't care about whether you can prevent sharing with your friends on FB it whatever, what I care about is me not having to alter my network settings so that if I give you access to my WiFi network, you sharing MY network information with the pwoe you're "friends" with.
There's a doodad on my AP that let's me disable a feature on a connecting WiFi client?
So, instead of posting multiple times hire they article misrepresents the feature, quit being a shill and explain how exactly it works.
That isn't the issue. The issue is YOU being able to share MY WiFi key because I was dumb enough to let a Windows 10 user on my WiFi network. This is akin to me giving you the keys to my house so you can housesit, and you getting a hundred copies cut and distributing them to a bunch of people you know.
This is from the company that thought having users run as root user using a browser that would automatically install unsigned executables and libraries from the Internet was just the bestest idea ever.
Thank you for being a friend,
And sharing WiFi passwords there and back again.
You're giving me the WiFi key of your favorite restaurant.
And if they came to your dorm,
Invited everyone you knew,
You would see the ugly guy at the back downloading kiddie porn,
And the FBI would raid you singing "Thank you for filling our jail!"
Inflammatory Mode On: Why in the fuck would even want to opt-in to such a service? If it's private WiFi, it's likely to be at my home or my workplace, and in either case I absolutely do not ever want to share that over fucking Fuckbook, Twatter or whatever stupid lame-ass soshial neshworking crap site becomes the next biggest and greatest.
Rational Mode On: Now let's imagine that my organization has a private WiFi hotspot available for employees and a few others. I do not ever want to have those keys shared outside that group, nor should I have to change MY network with an "_optout" on the end of an SSID. I would consider that a breach of security. Sure, I'll probably be able to disable Windows devices that are domain members via GPO, but if they're not actually devices belonging to the organization, or "Pro" versions of Windows where it even knows what the hell Active Directory is, then MY network is being compromised by this service.
This is just a plain bad idea, whether you're being reasonable or inflammatory.
You also don't have to worry as much about massive storms with 300km/h winds. I don't know about you, but I'm not sure I'd want to be hanging out in a large zeppelin when a wind like that nailed me.
And here's somebody who doesn't think solipsism is utterly pointless and nihilistic philosophy, and actually thinks researchers should adopt it.
and a good number of the population
Shrinking rapidly since the majority of the population is very young.
I've also always wondered why the U.S. put all its money on the Arab countries instead of Iran
Follow the Saudi money into the pockets of key US political figures for decades and you have the answer.
Last decade, when you were doing this shit
Bit longer than that and still doing it. Why bother to quote something if you haven't read and comprehended it?
Indeed. Even though that's a bad idea with media life and formats there's a lot of material that fits that description, especially in the geosciences and some other applied sciences. It's something I have to deal with several times a year with some clients even providing tapes from the late 1970s.
Losing an encryption key is one of the most minor risks I can imagine
It's both potentially a complete showstopper and totally unnecessary in the first place. I don't really understand why you cannot grasp the concept.
I'll restate something above in another way - if you can't work out how to do a bare metal restore on a single system with all the needed data on media that you can read and the right hardware then somebody has seriously fucked up. That guy that worked there should have put something together in such a way as someone with a moderate skillset can work it out, or someone with detailed instructions can do it with very little in the way of skills. Requiring a key that can be lost is a major fuckup waiting to happen. You suggested you wouldn't be able to work it out in a couple of hours - I think you were selling yourself short to try to make a point just as your ridiculous strawman in my name "with no foreknowledge of their systems" WHEN THE ENTIRE POINT is to PROVIDE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF THEIR SYSTEMS by having disaster recovery documents designed to be read by the least skilled person capable of doing the job.
