Woah, when did Netflix start showing advertisement? When I was a subscriber (before they doubled their rates) they had none and it was somewhat worthwhile to access their catalog. Then their catalog shrunk, then their rates went up and now I hear they've added adverts? I sure hope they lowered their rates or increased the size of their catalog.
Network TV is $0 per month not $100 per month where I live (Seattle). Not sure why anyone would pay $100 a month for something that is being broadcast into their living room via the airwaves.
you need to assume that your private keys and other SSL artifacts have been compromise. have fun regenerating your certs and getting them re-signed.
Re-signed by a compromised private certificate?
I got bitten when I tried to watch a movie I had purchased from Amazon in my hotel room in Canada. They were at least nice and allowed me to refund all of my digital purchases, which I did.
I think he or she meant that walking is not a viable mode of commuting for the majority of the working population.
Maybe modern cars have better traction control, but I've always had to turn mine off when driving up snowy hills and use the clutch. I drive a ten-year-old VW though so perhaps the traction control is dated.
I don't care if it takes me 2 seconds or 0.2 seconds to shift gears. That's not the performance I need from my car. What I need from my car is being able to downshift *prior* to needing to accelerate, like when anticipating a merge. What I need from my car is being able to use the clutch to apply just the right amount of power to the wheels to get traction on slippery surfaces, like when pulling out of an icy parking spot over snow onto a plowed road.
You are correct though, that a computer can control the clutch more quickly than I can, but it doesn't see (yet) when I need power and downshift before I need it or how to apply just the right amount of power to gain traction on surfaces that are not uniform (again, yet).
I think taking several hours to travel somewhere is pretty awesome stuff compared to a week of driving or many many months of walking. That's why I put up with the inconvenience of the airport.
Yes, if there is some probably cause, then I will agree. I'm all for probable cause. If we're going to call car plugged into outlet probably cause, then I have a problem with that. I rather not have police enter my car on my property because I was charging it.
That would imply the cop knew more than just seeing a car that was tethered to a mains. What part being plugged in implies foul play afoot? If he had received a complaint or some such, I might see it differently.
Ah yes, and a car plugged in is by default stealing power? That seems like a pretty flimsy reason to search a car. "Hold it there sir, you are eating a hamburger, I must ascertains it's not stolen!"
So, cops should search everything everywhere every time just in case there is something illegal going on? That sounds like a police state I'd rather not live in.
Having a preference does not necessarily mean the exclusion of the other. I fall into the prefer printed book category (though for a different age demographic) but I own a good number of both. I prefer printed books but I have been working on reducing the size of my physical library because ebooks take up less space and I want fewer physical possessions to worry about.
Despite my preference for one, I use the other more but use both quite a lot.
Presumably not as much of a problem in North America since no-one walks anywhere.
I walk to the greengrocer's and I do not use a cart. I find a hand basket to serve as a good measure of how heavy my groceries will be to carry home. I do seem to be in the minority though.
If you only make phone calls and disable everything else then all you are left with is tracking, which happens on the other end anyhow.
