Instead of a poor man's firewall, why don't you use a real firewall?.....As it is more simple a "real" firewall is cheaper than your "poor man's firewall".
Seriously, this tripe is getting modded as insightful now?
Frankly there's no excuse for any modern software to be vulnerable even if connected directly to the internet with no firewall.
Oh my fucking God.
Um, no. The whole "NAT is security" argument is bullshit. KISS: I'd rather have a simple firewall which either blocks or does not block ports/IPs (or connections, if stateful) than a complex firewall which also has to rewrite packets.
I'm afraid it's not. I never cease to be amazed by people who think that managing multiple IP addresses is better and less error prone than one, and frankly, I don't want anyone being able to discern anything about what should be my *internal* network.
Explain how those were the result of fiat currency.
Every single fiat currency since the dawn of time has failed, without exception, and with terrible results. In between, every thirty or forty years or so we get a slightly different currency, some partly 'backed' by gold, some completely fiat, but they all fail in the end.
Odd - I did well in both 2001 and 2008, and although I have hard investments, I simply didn't invest where the "smart" people said I should. I invested in what I knew would work. That's where most of my money went, and then returned with profit.
I believe you. Even if you have, you got lucky and you're not the 90% I'm afraid, which is my point.
Even more odd is that you think that the fiscal insanity was caused by fiat currency, when in fact, most was caused by lack of regulation, mortgage originators who had no fiscal stake in the process, leading to mortgages to people who never should have them, and the insanity ne plus ultra - the 50 year morgage. a favorite of 80 year olds.
The lack of regulation comes from creating fiat in large amounts with wild abandon for those well connected. It's pretty damn obvious frankly.
Dude, any Government that can make everyone's electronic money worthless, can take your Gold
There will be no government.....because no one will be able to afford one.
The US only got involved in Afghanistan after the USSR was fighting on the ground.
You think that if it gives you comfort.
Dunno what China has to do with any of this, but if you fear a war is coming, maybe you should tell Putin to stop? Because he's the one hell-bent on conquering his neighbours, which is what this is about.
The only country hell-bent on war is the United States because their power and influence in the world is waning and the sun is very rapidly setting on their empire, such that it is.
These missiles were supplied by the Russians.
Really, because the only side known to absolutely have such anti-aircraft missiles are Ukraine, and they've used them to shoot down an airliner before.
For Russia or the pro-Russian militia to argue otherwise is incredulously sad, pathetic and stupid. Shameful.
As opposed to all the other unsubstantiated propaganda?
When did they do this before? If they had, we would have definitely heard about it because YOUR dictator Putin would never shut up about it if it did. Fuck off, Russian troll!
Let me Google that for you you idiot:
Put simply, we already know Ukraine has the equipment, and they've used it.
My guess is that the Russians gave their people/proxies in eastern Ukraine enough training to shoot something down, but not to clearly ascertain what they were shooting at.
Errrrr, no. Russians don't do that nor are they going to provide any equipment that will incriminate them. People forget that for all westerners believe they are a bunch of irresponsible peasants these people play a heck of a lot of chess, which means they sit back, investigate, take stock and when they make their move you don't even knows it's happened. Russia is not some tinpot country in some backwater and that's what makes the current situation so dangerous.
Next week when the satellite and black box data come out you will be needed even more.
Good luck with that
As far as I can see this is just about as credible as the assumption that this was done by Russian separatists.
The simple fact is that the Russian backed separatists *believed* they were firing at a Ukrainian military transport.
The simple fact is that neither you nor anyone else knows that at all, and it hasn't been established that Russia has even given the separatists anti-aircraft missiles not to mention the training required. Moscow might provide subtle help, but not that kind of help. Ukraine, on the other hand does, and they've already shot down an airliner with them before. That's the only 'very basic logic error' here.
...unlike FlightRadar24 which uses 1 minute resolution data....
You're placing rather too much faith in FlightRadar24 I'm afraid, as all enthusiasts tend to do.
