These appear to have wi-fi, so probably not as dumb as one would like.

Dancing peck mussels was how I discovered I was allergic to seafood
I'd assume (without further info) that this is about the "allow some non-intrusive advertising" checkbox you get in the filter options. It's on by default, but when you install adblock (as I did a few days ago) it one of the things you go through when the configuration dialog pops up.
It links to: https://adblockplus.org/en/acc...
It's not perfect in that it's on by default, but it's easy enough to disable. Perhaps they could improve it by tying this checkbox to your "do not track" preference?
Where I live (a stone's throw from Canary Wharf, London's other major financial centre and where the fat internet pipes come into the UK) there's no fibre, no LTE, and the exchange is miles away. 2MB down has been the best I've been able to get for the last decade, with no change in sight. I blame Thatcher!
I wasn't aware the BSDs have different kernels. Do OpenBSD kernel changes also end up in the other BSDs?
(I guess it might not be worth it as I recently saw confirmation that *BSD is dying.)
For those too lazy to google:
I recommend Django to you. It seems to be written by clueful folk who care about things like backwards compatibility and fixing the small broken things rather than throwing it all away for the next version. As a bonus, it's not PHP.
I consider AdBlock a form of antivirus, in that ad positions are an attack vector (for random third party code injected into the page from behind some stack of brokers).
For the same reason, I don't install free phone apps if they're ad-supported.
Digital comms is soulless and overrated anyway. It doesn't have the warmth, vibrancy or resonance of analogue. I use a solid granite radio phone with a golden antenna so I can really capture the subtleties of my interlocutor's voice.
I think I'd advise the reverse, at least in terms of company size. A small company is more likely to value you for what you do, rather than want to replace you because your salary has become "too high". The small company I work for has a family feel to it, with zero office politics, but possibly not the same career advancement possibilities you'd get at a megacorp.
Perhaps startups are a special case; an established small company will be more stable. Or at least, your future is tied more to the performance of the company than the whims of those above you.
I disagree. Churning out a Wordpress brochure site requires some non-zero level of IT skills, but it's not the same level as, say, designing a data processing algorithm to run on MapReduce.
Surely "mild" and "harsh" are subjective? From the point of view of a molecule, what constitutes "harsh"?
Perhaps evolving life in high temperatures turns out to be easier than at room temperature, e.g. because there's more free energy around.
Don't worry... the Republicans will veto this for fear of finding yet more Europeans.
I remember a little interview (in the New Scientist I think) with a marine biologist who said he stopped experimenting on octopi when, after inserting a probe into the head of an octopus he thought was anaesthetised, the octopus calmly raised its tentacle and pulled the probe back out.
Not sure why you're currently modded redundant as I came to say pretty much the same thing.
Although it's pretty funny if saying one doesn't trust the NSA is now considered redundant...
