I could never figure out how to save the game so I always had to start over naked, in the woods, on a dark path where I found a a wood club. Kinda strange how I always had a wood club when I was naked in the woods hmmmm. Wait a minute! Girl DM's go figure.
If the boss says "You need to go to America," then your interest might be in keeping your job to, as we sometimes say here, "put food on your family." Of course, if you're independently wealthy, you do have many more choices and lots fewer problems . .
Exactly. And might I add that any reasonable company will give the employee a "clean loaner laptop" to take to this wonderful country. That way they do not have to risk loosing their computer. Just don't be doing any "funny business" on that machine!
By all means come to the USA (soon to be the USSA) and see what is used to be like when we were free and had rights. I think you'll find a exhibit or something in a museum. It's right next to the diorama showing when this country had a set of balls and wasn't so afraid of it's own shadow that it would create departments like the NSA, TSA and Homeland Security (really, homeland?! sounds like the fucking Nazi's). Don't mind the anal cavity search on the way in and out. That's our way of saying how much we like you!
As soon as it is obvious that a so called super earth is far to close to its sun to be inhabitable they should stop calling it like that.
If they really want to get attention next time they'll call it "Super Earth 2000 Extreme (tm)"
What people should realize here is that the "Justice" system is in place to, primarily, protect the power structure. If you're still accepting that "justice is blind" and "rule of Law" fairy tale they taught in government schools, it's time to wake up and smell the tyranny.
YEAH! I thought it was just me. It's refreshing to read a agreeing opinion.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
Seems like old time don't it?
That data is given voluntarily. People may be pretty glib in giving the information, but it is still their choice. Maybe I do want Facebook knowing everything, but don't want my government to. Still, my choice. I never opted-in at the NSA web site.
I agree, 100%. Further his statement that *we* hand data over to corporations all the time is an assumption on his part. He has no proof at all to support that statement. An example of a conflict in his statement is that some citizens purposely live completely "off the grid" to avoid any corporate entanglements. What about those people?
I believe this judge is saying anything he can to keep the NSA in power and doing what they're doing. Somehow the NSA's actions are helping him, his party or some other interest he or some other involved party of his have.
Also note that once again the statement is made that our protections under the Constitution are not absolute but can be regulated, limited and changed as the Government see fit. Whenever our "rights" interfere with the Government's desires for more power we will see them diminish further. What has happened to our country? The Constitution is clearly of little importance to the Government or the Courts anymore.
At least they are doing something. What have YOU done?
I haven't bought a XBox or any other Microsoft product, I have not subscribed to Cox VOIP, I also don't have a Facebook page, twittter account or any other related infosite account. I wont buy a PS4 or a new phone, tablet or anything else until this spy / fear mongering crap stops. The only item I have not gotten rid of is gmail. For IMHO they are all the same. Even if you run you own POP server they can get the data. But we'll see maybe I'm just not being clever enough. I realized the gov does not listen to me (I tried but they just said they don't agree with me). But I also realized who the gov will listen too: businesses whose customer base is telling "I don't trust you so I wont buy your product" So, I voted with my "information" (it's as good as cash these days) and cash as well. I'm sure a whole lot of other folks did too. Some of them even post on this site!
And how are you expecting to find out if you have access to the source? If a Linux distro is sharing keys with the NSA? Or even built in exploitable vulnerabilities. It's not like there's going to be a commented subroutine that stands out. A series of unrelated conditions that are hard to impossible to spot can be enough. Widely used OSS software have had undiscovered critical vulnerabilities for decades.
I'm no crypto expert. I really know very little about it except there are keys that used to encrypt the information. But, would it be possible for the OS vendor/maker to simply allow the user to enter another key when installing the OS that, without that key, it would be very hard to decrypt the information? If I'm not completely bulloxed on this the NSA would have to get the owners key to make any sense of the data. I am assuming/trusting that the OS does apply the owners key to all user generated data. That's probably naive.
If I did, at least a project or two I'm working on would likely go away.
Well, it's clear you don't work for my management. My management thinks there are a bunch of available engineers just milling about across the street waiting for a chance to work here.
You think that would make any difference if the majority of domestic traffic was repeated to an NSA datafarm?
Yes, if that information was then queried after you got arrested. Then the results of that search produced information that could be used against you in court. Yes, I think it could make a very big difference.
GW2 is old and dead despite being young. You'll find nothing but empty maps as you explore the world, a failed abortion of "e-sports" in PvP, and an increasingly stale WvW where the balance is made up and the points don't matter because your server's success depends solely on how many guilds you have in other timezones.
I just moved from WoW to GW2. GW2 is anything other than dead. Most of the servers are high or very high population. Lots of players when I'm on so I'm not sure why your saying that it's dead and no one is playing.
