Emails are sent in the open - like postcards.
Incidentally the spam filtering is only a service provided specifically because you as a customer demands it. It's easy as hell to opt-out should you want to.
No, but we're discussing the second Death Star and the shield generator around it, not the Battle of Hoth.
The shield generator on Hoth, incidentally, protected the planet from orbital planetary bombardment. It did what it was supposed to do, but could not stop ground troops from coming down to the surface and destroy it.
I'd say that the web technologies of today *is* broken - but it's more because of what the web has evolved to than anything else.
The original web was never supposed to be dynamic. It was supposed to be static pages with maybe some theming thrown around for good measure. And for a while, that worked, then came requirements of theming (CSS) and form handling (PHP) and cool effects (JS).
These days however, it's all about webapps. Few if any sites have static content, it's all in a database somewhere. HTML is merely an afterthought; noone cares whether HTML validates or not, because the pages aren't static and shit just works. The entire "presentation vs content" that was going on doesn't really exist anymore - The content has moved to the database and HTML is today only used as a presentational language. Sad but true.
Therefore I think we need to rethink and reinvent the entire web as we know it, since the current path will only lead to more and more brokenness. HTML has outlived it's purpose, it's as simple as that...
Nono... That's TROLLS!
Gnomes are small cute persons. They're even smaller than halflings.
Sheeesh, kids these days...
So, by creating MIR Ubuntu contributed to Wayland by giving the Gnome devs a big kick in the butt?
Well played, Canonical, well played!
And for the record, as long as both MIR and Wayland are more or less interoperable I don't care what's behind the hood. Both are open source and will be solid by the time they come out, so may the best implementation win. A little competition every now and then is just healthy.
Hardly. Google is also such an indexing service. Just google for whatever with the name torrent behind it. I can assure you it will be at least as effective as TPB.
The MAFIAAs coffin, that is.
They simply do not understand that they with this are chipping away at the very foundation that supports their business; their customers. They might stay afloat for a while but sooner or later something is bound to crack in a big way. I feel sad for every person this happen to, but it's unavoidable.
Yeah, it only took five freaking years to get all classic preorders filled.
The OpenPandora is unfortunately too little too late - it was interesting when it came out, but now? Now I can use my Android for everything I wanted to use my Pandora for...
That should read, "ejabberd or Openfire". Gah, stupid typoes!
If it's for your own personal use, I reccommend Prosody. Small, simple, stable and with the features you want.
If it's for a larger org like a medium-large company, then Erlang or Openfire is the better way to go though.
Rowling had a day job while writing her first Potter. How would keeping copyright exactly as it is help Rowling 2.0 write her first Potter 2.0 without having a day job?
For that matter, if copyrights were to be reduced to twenty years, how would it prevent Rowling 2.0 to earn just as much money writing Potter 2.0?
Copyright is today a limitation of the consumers ownership rights. Therefore we must always ask ourselves, is it fair that they keep having this right? Why? And is their right outstepping their bounds?
It's not illegal to make a backup copy for fair use.
And I swear to god, should someone go after Byuu for taking on and finishing this monumental task, then I and many with me will pitch in the fundraiser to cover his attorney costs.
Next up, maybe the PAL set?
The more people will realise "Hey, wait a second, screw those assholes! I don't have to put up with this. I can say no to their products!"
And when enough shit happens, your Average Joe will go free culture (aka Creative Commons) ON YO ASS, YO!
Either they stop chasing their customers, or they die trying to squeeze their customers every penny they got.
