... TV has taken over social interaction. Inside and outside the family. Time was when we interacted and learnt social mores and life skills from entities who could respond to us. TV cannot. While I am sure Ralph Nader and similar outliers exist, TV has become what human nature and the bandwidth/cable access monopolies always destined it to be... manipulative and shallow programming, beholden to advertising interests engorged by the unnatural hold it has over our life.
Bread and circuses. We got one, one more to go...
"I completely agree that that is a just and honorable way to act in accordance with the original author's probable intent. But it also amounts to you publicly announcing that you are committing copyright infringement. Without an explicit license you have absolutely ZERO legal right to do *anything* with anyone else's code. As such I hope you're not using such code for anything important."
Did I just commit copyright infringement?
That is quite literally, correct
I got an Xbox None
Yet script kiddies should not be allowed to randomly cut/paste kernel code fragments, compile it, and sell the binary as "Linux"?
...sift the wheat from the chaff?
...The Cylon bootstrap process ?
Or the ones that contribute code under those licenses. like me.
No, rather the AMD launch *was* the XBox One announcement

You're just a bit too much a programmer, and a tad too sharp an entrepreneur.
Become somewhat more a manager and factor in some 'fat' -- both in the invoices you charge your customers, and in the time you allocate your contractors. Remember, crap happens. If it doesn't, and your contractors manage to deliver bug free code ahead of time, give them a 'performance' or 'quality' bonus (i.e. payment for the full time allocated). Do not chase profit maximisation like big shops do. They have adequate manpower buffers to beat you at your own game.
Alternatively, hire someone skilled --- but don't be cheap. Remember, if you chase cost reduction like the small shops, your employee obtains the hunger (he already has the skills) to beat you at your own game.
Or cutback on the custom that you give that corporation
No, they'd be something akin to a wiretap warrant issued by (mostly) just judges following (mostly) just laws.
They do have significant terror issues and want to be able to do these intercepts...
The problem is their track record on human rights. Being ruled by just laws is a human right. It's upto Moxie. But have you considered the implications of moxie revealing this man's name. Think about it Mr.
And btw, your govt. is *able* to intercept communications. Including this. But I think you mean intercept all comms
