FTFA: "A federal appeals court is rejecting an appeal from a bank-fraud defendant who has been ordered to decrypt her laptop so its contents can be used in her criminal case."

"The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, however, sided with the governmentâ(TM)s contention that an appeal was not ripe"

"The appellate court wrote Wednesday that it lacks âoejurisdiction to consider the resulting proceeding under any exception to our usual finality rules.â"

"If she does not decrypt the drive by monthâ(TM)s end, as ordered, she could be held in contempt and jailed until she complies."

Is this Fark?


Florida Man Sues WikiLeaks For Scaring Him 340

Stoobalou writes "WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been accused of 'treason' by a Florida man seeking damages for distress caused by the site's revelations about the US government. From the article: 'David Pitchford, a Florida trailer park resident, names Assange and WikiLeaks as defendants in a personal injury suit filed with the Florida Southern District Court in Miami. In the complaint filed on 6th January, Pitchford alleges that Assange's negligence has caused "hypertension," "depression" and "living in fear of being stricken by another heart attack and/or stroke" as a result of living "in fear of being on the brink of another nuclear [sic] WAR."' Just for good measure, it also alleges that Assange and WikiLeaks are guilty of 'terorism [sic], espionage and treason.'"

Wow, you're a trolling idiot. I'm responding to this as I watch watch two amateurs converse using Olivia on 30 meters and a few KC away is some MFSK. Later this evening, I'll drop down on 75 meters and check into the RTTY net. Earlier this afternoon, I spent an hour on 20 working PSK 31. Last night I did a little meteor scatter using JT6M. Who do you think develops digital modes? Who do you think actually has the equipment and know how to use them and understands propagation? The radio spectrum is a natural resource to be managed for the benefit of everyone.

Many people write memos to tell you they have nothing to say.
