The only Win boxes in my house are the Uverse set top boxes. They get sluggish, sometimes just hang, and require a reboot about once a month because of a "system has changed". The machine I am writing this on reboots when I have a power outage. Hell, I don't remember the last time I even had to log out of my account.

I like this concept. Choke them with their own words.
FWIW, they are not just collecting metadata, at least not under the common understanding of collect. Remember the Boston bomber? One week after his arrest they were discussing having just listened to his families calls to overseas. They had the calls recorded, collected to everyone else, but didn't listen to them till after the bombing. They are wanting the ability to retroactively listen to everyone this way. Later they will do it proactively, but baby steps. With this understanding, the warrant process is worthless.
It certainly is possible that one or the other represents a greater danger.
For myself, I have had one minor loss to crime in my life, I have had a number of thefts and a couple of kidnappings by government.
It always amazes me "Ignorance of the law is no excuse" but a lawyer has to study years just to understand small subset of them. There are even special courts and judges for specific legal areas.
Denial. Isn't that how we greet all major discoveries. FAIK, no alien life mentioned in the bible so obviously not possible.
And we know they are because VPN, duh.
You forgot to say "yet". Fences work both ways.

To summarize, current releases with magnet links:
SPE_01 spe_01 torrent
SPE_02 spe_02 torrent
SPE_03 spe_03 torrent
SPE_04 spe_04 torrent
SPE_05 spe_05 torrent
SPE_06 spe_06 torrent
SPE_03 and SPE_04 are torrents to zip files of torrents, as the original zips have been pulled from every file host I checked.
>we also already have laws against that
Much like the safeguards of the 4th amendment and the international crime of torture. Thank dog we have laws to protect us.
No doubt the data could also be used for good, as a sort of side effect.
>if you're flying a drone/rc aircraft/whatever near a fucking class B airport you're violating several existing regulations...
And the answer to this flouting of regulations is more regulations? If I ignore one law why would I abide two?
Living is a basement apartment in Boston I had problems with particulates from the street. I removed the window screen, installed a filter in its place, and mounted a window fan on the inside. Whole house air filter and didn't even need the box. 15 years ago, I claim prior art if he patents it.
I usually identify myself as atheist because that doesn't require the explanations that the correct label of anti-theist would. I see an atheist as an agnostic who is sufficiently convinced that supernatural beings don't exist. I am also anti-theist because I think the belief in gods is inherently evil, harmful, corrupting, and otherwise a bad thing.
Just to put the discussion back on track, as an engineer I find communications to be my most difficult challenge. I hold meeting, issue reports, and make sure to talk privately with everyone involved in my projects. Despite a strong concerted effort I still find people under or miss informed. No amount of communication is too much, I'm not sure any amount is sufficient.
So the liberals let it happen while the conservatives support it? You tell me which is worse.
