I would mod you up if I had points.
Sex = killing babies. Here's how it works:
- sex = unwanted pregnancy.
- unwanted pregnancy = abortion
- abortion = killing babies
There you have it. Sex = killing babies
So...you are saying staring at a light bulb all day is good for your eyes. Good to know.
Eventually the scene devolved into chairs being thrown...
Microsoft was invited to the party? I didn't know they were around in 1913.
Your post reeks of self-righteousness. Most anyone being accused of child porn would pay for charges to go away, whether they downloaded any or not. That is an extremely bad charge that could ruin a person's life even if they win the case.
There are also plenty of Nigerian scams which are not caused by fraud on the part of the victim. For example, one where the fraudster buys something from a victim and sends a fake check for more than the amount, and asks them to deposit it and send the difference back. Most people not knowing the scam will do it.
Me thinks the AC was making a sarcastic statement based on the fact many government agents or people speaking about government agents investigating a person will often say: "if you aren't doing anything wrong, you have nothing to hide." Which obviously is wrong.
... What if I'm just lounging around the house and happen to have the television on or a song playing on the Nexus Q, am I going to be sued by Sony or making illegal copies of copyrighted material? Are they going to build in a kill switch for Google Glass controlled by your content-protected television?
The big media companies already tried to pass a law requiring this. It was called the CBDTPA. It failed just as hard as SOPA, though some aspects of it have appeared in a certain company's OS in the form of "secure boot" and "trusted computing" and such.
Microsoft pulls some minor crap with web browsers, and they take notice. Yet, when a system is put in place which will make it difficult for someone to choose an alternate operating system, the government doesn't care. WTF? Microsoft's monopoly is based upon Operating Systems.
...that sending bot generated DMCA complaints and other fraudulent complaints of works they don't own is disrespectful to the copyright holder and the author's free speech.
Sugar coat it however you like... rationalize it, justify it, whatever you do... it's still a violation of the rights of the real author.
Same goes for questionable lawsuits against writers of communications software.
What are the potential health effects of having implants like these?
When "Trusted Computing" is fully implemented, expect to pay for software by the hour. That is why Microsoft is so hot for it.
rsync.net seems to use standard protocols--in their FAQ it says "SSH and HTTPS (webDAVs)" (I've been thinking about using them for a while, just haven't made the plunge.)
It took me a minute to figure out what you meant by "ID." Then I remembered "Intelligent Design." My question is: they let a kook who thinks space aliens created life on Earth on CNN? Usually that is reserved for Coast to Coast AM.
Ask Darren Bousman. It looks like he just made a great movie funded by himself--The Devil's Carnival. Here is a sample. I haven't seen the movie yet (they are touring through the country, but no where near me), but it looks at least as good to me as any movie from a major studio.
