I came here to say EXACTLY this. WTF? I thought this was news for nerds dammit?!?!
Indeed, never trust basic security to users. Better to keep a your workstations up-to-date & deal with the IT nightmare that is updating rogue workstations than to deal with the IT apocalypse of click monkeys.
It's often the wrong part. Sometimes there's two solutions to the same problem because there's two ways of people looking at the problem.
Who needs to pick a solution that everyone has to use when you can pick a solution that you want to use?
Until there's widespread FTTP (GPON or AON) it will be more pain than it's worth.
I have run a Linux server for years with just these services on ADSL & ADSL2. Mail is fine, even a Jabber server is fine, even private file hosting is ok, if a bit slow, but once you start hosting websites your ability to actually use your own Internet when you're home is diminished.
I was hoping that the National Broadband Network (NBN) would stay 93% FTTP here in Australia, but unfortunately with the change in government that's looking less & less likely.
While I know what one is, why are Americans commandeering reality? They can't even keep their government open, how the fuck are they supposed to keep maths consistent?
In Melbourne, until recently, the Telstra network in the CBD was essentially falling over. During lunch hour you were lucky to be able to send a tweet or even refresh your incoming tweet stream. One thing that did work is push notifications, which is the intention of this system.
I see it as a smart use of the medium. The key with emergency response is to have the same message spread on as many mediums as possible to ensure the message gets out there.
Anyone being snarky about this has no idea what they are talking about & should look at how current emergency systems work (read: redundancy).
Anyone who modded you troll should leave this site immediately!
FFS, if you don't get that reference, hand in your geek/nerd badge!
Exactly it. No matter how much effort you put into music, most labels retain copyright over the works. Smaller indie labels don't tend to do this, but the big players all do it.
Then again, most of these synthetic bands/artists don't write their own music or lyrics, they're just glorified cover bands. Not to say Phoenix is like this, I quite like their music, but I'm not sure how I feel about their label now.
I don't get it, there's so much better to beat Zuckerberg up about, hacking on him for a previously used domain just looks desperate.
In fact, the British were very versed in sailing in the southern hemisphere by that stage, they'd spent over 100 years sending boats to where I live, Australia.
I always enjoyed reading MKUltra files/stories, it was like sci-fi, but real. Scary that someone green-lit all this stuff, has to take some belief in it, & these are the people "defending" the US.
Oh, & "The Men Who Stare At Goats" is awesome too.
Maybe don't make "stupid fucking mistakes" publicly & you won't get humiliated publicly. Sorry, but if you're going to act like a moron, expect people to ridicule you as a moron.
As someone who doesn't suffer fools lightly, I'm with Linus all the way on this one.
Call it being a prima donna, call it being mean spirited, I call it "having no fucks to give".
I'd be hesitant to believe anything from O3b after they demanded a ban on National Broadband Network satellites here in Australia. They are an hostile company doing this to exploit people in a monopoly environment, not aid them.
The OP has it wrong. Extended warranties last 3 years, during the lowest chance of failure time, electronic devices will generally die in the first few months (manufacturer warranty) or after 3 years (after extended warranty). Add to this that extended warranties have convoluted terms that attempt to stop people getting warranty repairs.
In Australia, extended warranties are useless due to Australian Consumer Law, which protects consumers by making manufacturers repair goods if they fail before a reasonable time. Essentially, if there's an extended warranty available, the item should last as long a the extended warranty.
That's what I mean, so many levels in Eve, from corporate espionage, war zones, pirates, smugglers, & even civilians. Could be a great universe to write a series for, the capacity for some eye watering special effects is boundless. Cap battles, raiding squads destroying transports, even just a busy starbase would be impressive.
Again, all comes down to whether there's a good director & writers for the series.
