They're about strategy as much as rock paper scissor is about strategy.
Actually, that's not fair. Rock paper scissors is balanced - SC2 is meta-balanced by blizzard to achieve a desired win ratio.

AKA nerf Terran every patch until no one wants to play them.
It would be like making scissors break rock because more people choose rock.

If they have admin privileges on a box that all your workstations look to and trust for updates and can forge MS's cert, then it is in fact game fucking over regardless of SSL because they don't need to look at the traffic.

If they can MITM your network and inject traffic and can forge MS's cert, then it is in fact game fucking over regardless of SSL because with WSUS SSL only protects the update metadata.

You can scream "defense in depth" all you want, but you're talking about building a moat around your battleship.

They guarantee support for X years for shit when a SP is released.
Since these updates aren't cumulative updates they aren't SPs, despite the significance of the changes they involve.
Since they're not SPs, MS has no obligation to support shit for X years after releasing them.

Windows 9 will be Windows 8.1 Update 2. It will be out next year. The press will love it, and will stroke their own cocks furiously for successfully perpetuating the odd-numbered Windows release pattern.

If someone is inside your firewall and signing malicious versions of updates with forged MS certs and pushing them through your servers then SSL isn't going to do shit.

The only reason to SSL your WSUS shit is if you want to stop Jim from seeing that Pam's machine needs the latest definition updates for System Center Endpoint Protection 2012 (which is listed in the catalog as Forefront 2010...).

Physics is not accessible to mathematics, Mathematics is just a tool physics uses on formalized abstractions of physics.

Underlying this is an assumption that reality is not itself mathematical. This assumption isn't justified.

Furthermore, physics can indeed drive mathematics. For instance, see the invention of quantum logic and generalized probability theory.

The assumption that the Universe is mathematical isn't justified.
The fact that math is physical is justified. All math we do exists in the Universe, whether we're using math to describe the Universe (what we can see and know of it) or whether we're wanking about with ridiculous shit like string theory.
No amount of math can fully describe the Universe as no entity within a system can know the full nature of the system with certainty.

Math is a tool used to describe patterns.
Physics is a model describing the Universe
The Universe is everything

The above cannot be challenged in court. No court in the Universe holds jurisdiction over this. The contributor didn't sell you OpenSSL, he didn't force you to use it, it didn't tell you to use it, he didn't make any guarantees about its functionality, you have no contract, no warranty, no expectation for it to actually do anything, etc.
You may as well sue someone after walking into their house uninvited, listening to them whistle while they're sitting on the toilet, and hearing a missed note.

Meanwhile at CONACO:

Conan should've fought to jump into bed with Fox when they were mulling the idea over, affiliate issues be damned. It's not like it's a live show, let them air it whenever the fuck their news block ends. Fox is the only network that can actually harness his demo and generate ad revenue (via traditional broadcast ratings or "rich media integration" or whatever they call the internet today).
He was dead at TBS before he started, just as we was in the earlier hour on The Tonight Show. NBC offering to push The Tonight Show back an hour and give him his old time slot back was actually very generous. But Conan wanted an ideal of The Tonight Show that didn't exist anymore. Anyone who watched Leno (or his audience) over the years would have known that.

I have OpenVPN installed on my portable devices, and it connects back to my VPN server, using my own CA. I have the devices set to use the VPN server as the gateway so when I'm doing any kind of data retrieval that I want to keep confidential, it's going through an encrypted tunnel. Yes, it does slow things down a bit, but I find most public WiFi sucks pretty serious donkey balls anyways.

Nothing is 100% secure, but I pretty much treat any public network; airport, airplane, hotel, restaurant, or the like as hostile territory.

That's all pointless. They've tapped your home connection too. Your ISP gives them anything they want on a silver platter.

So you experience includes tracking every person, looking for repeat behavior trending with time and gaining intimate knowledge of their home life?

Or, you are just wrong. I think I"m going to go with you are just wrong.

If his experience includes playing games, it's more experience than Jeffrey Lin has. He never actually analyzed player conduct, let alone player conduct in context of the game.

All Lin did was filter chat logs to people who said "report" and cross referenced that list with the list of report submitters where no action was taken. 2 week auto ban for anyone who said "report" in in-game chat and had a failed report. in game behavior of the reporter was not analyzed, nor was that of the reported, nor was the report or the people who evaluated them, nor were the actual chat logs, nor were any audio logs. (No MOBA I'm aware of stores or reviews voice chat, so if you want to troll your team you do it over voice chat because it's an unactionable haven while you attack move down mid lane to feed.)
