Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Just what can you reasonably expect? Most programmers have been emotionally hurt repeatedly by women (much fewer by men) so it is natural they form protective shells (no not `bash`, the other kind). Yes, that does tar all women with one brush but all men are equally tarred by the misbehaviours of a small minority.
As for discrimination, I personally consider it cowardly -- fair competition, and let the best [wo]man win.
append fake_ACPI=2 to wherever your kernel command-line hides. At least this is easily done and more importantly, people can know it might help.
Whether Linus will accept another switch is a totally different question -- Does his famous "The kernel will not cater for broken hardware" extend to BIOS firmware?
Anyone who uses force and evades investigation, responsibility and punishment is indistinguishable from a criminal.
I fear many LEOs have forgotten their job is not to catch bad guys but to create respect for the law by enforcing it impartially and in a manner seen by all to be correct.
Some BundesBeamter (German official clerks) are confused between communications means and content providers. Google and Facebook are end-point attractions, not means of communication. They are far more like newspapers than delivery routes. At the limit, they might be considered messaging services and regulated like a post office or parcel carriers.
Odd how all these errors are always in "their" favor and never in ours. As such they cannot be random mistakes.
The question of what is parody / satire cannot be easy to answer. I would suggest a simple test: "Are the copyright owners likely to produce a similar work?" alongside the Trademark question ("Are people confused?")
What I recall of the Power Rangers is cheezy, plasticy schlock aimed at kids. This seems very different, so may qualify as parody/satire.
There is an ancient concept called "sovereign immunity" which holds that rulers (people making laws) are automatically exempt from those laws. The theory is they would carve exemptions for themselves if it weren't so wordy or otherwise onerous (requiring foresight). To be sure, this self-justifying concept is very attractive! Free-riders include some enforcers of the law (police). Small wonder that Hillary behaves as "rules are for the little people."
However, the concept belongs to fealty and other power politics. It has no place in a democracy, and still less in the US which explicity rejects individual titles and power. Everyone is supposed to be equal before the laws, and have laws enforced uniformly. As it is now, "color of law" is near-immunity from it. We do not have a democracy but elected/appointed dictatorships, fortunately still fragmented.
2) NTIA may well help manage spectrum, and the Feds certainly can use their reserved spectrum however they wish. But that does not grant them immunity to use any spectrum they wish, however they wish. Carriers (and their customers) have paid dearly for that spectrum which gives it many of the characteristics of private property. There certainly is a well-established expectation of privacy. (This is supposed to be a nation of laws not lawmen.)
Is this StingRay thing even FCC licenced? What about the operators?
Looks like it performs indiscriminate MiTM attacks. Particularly egregious, since it could probably be tuned with software to only intercept those EEIDs for which a warrent was issued.
No time for a warrent? Then how did the device magically appear on-scene? It was called-out, and so could a warrent be.
Not that I approve of the individual or his "business", but he is essentially throwing the shoe on the other foot -- accusing others of what he is accused of. Of course it may be more greenmail, or we will have to endure a ruling (summary judgement likely) on exactly who is "a public figure".
He is not [yet] a convict, politician or other entertainer who might be said to have voluntarily exposed their persona to the public. He, much like his victims, would rather remain private. The serious question is whether Google etal had a right to dox him or whether their stories would have had equal weight without the personal identification. And precisely how he is legally distinguishable from his victims.
I looked at these NUC, but happily settled on the ECS LIVA. It doesn't have SATA, but the USB3 works and the internal 32 SSD is fast enough. Alot less $$$.
I run mine caseless, and it is really like a x86_64 RPi (even the RPi2 is not fast enough to run even chrome).
Congrats to the defense team for spotting this hole in the prosecution. Public defenders are not as bad as the media portray.
I'm not sure why the cop tech was not hit with fines & jail for contempt of court. No private agreement (even with FBI) trumps civil let alone criminal discovery. The DA probably settled to avoid the FBI repo'ing the Stingray (it was likely on loan).
You might be right or you might be wrong: Most places, traffic entering an intersection on the green must yield to traffic already in the intersection. That would include yielding to a pedestrian who got half-way across unless the crosswalk was clearly two-phases (London), usually with railings.
Of course smart pedestrians expect aggressive drivers. And smart drivers know better than to blow through fresh greens.
Man is at the top of planetary food-chains (neglecting the microbial predators). So he preys upon himself (aggression).
Excessive aggression is obviously sub-optimal with too much productive resources diverted to defense. Insufficient aggression might also be sub-optimal by increasing episodic payoffs ("jackpots") to renaissant aggression (classic predator-prey population cycling).
If you cannot totally eliminate aggression, then you should find an optimum lest it return with a vengence.
