really? you are playing man in the middle for all the https websites out there? I find it hard to believe.
how about the the username password for those websites, you are capturing username and password to banks, hotmail, gmail, facebook, paypal, ebay
to capture and store that information you'd need some really strong and clear disclosures

I would like phone companies to brick and block stolen phones, however.
the dmv is a gov org, the analagy here would be making petrol stations, not allow stolen cars to be refuled and calling the police.
yet somehow that is not expected of perol stations.
why is that ?

if the _return_ traffic is throttled, does that not throttle the connection? a layer 8 conversations goes send a request, wait for a reply, get a reply, send another request.
so if the reply is slow, I would think the whole conversation is slowed down, kind of a L8, tcp window size shrinking (excuse the mixed layers)

If you feel bad about leaching off redhat by using centos

If you are less than 2,000 seats, the 2,000+ companies are leaching off you, cause redhat does not provide you with usefull support and keeps the 2,000+ companies happy by subsidizing their cost thru you.
If you are using centos, you leaching off redhat's 2,000+ and 2,000 seats companies
If you are 2,000+ seats company you are leaching off the sub 2,000 seats people.

so you see, everyone leaches, the best position is either 2,000+ or centos. 0 - 2,000 seats you are screwed both ways.

In my experience, redhat support for a company with less than 2,000 seats falls into a couple of scenarios.
1. You call redhat, get lucky and you are told that the bug is known and getting worked on, i.e. a company with 2,000+ seats wants it fixed, and you benefitted little from calling redhat.
2. You call Redhat, bang your head against a brick wall, the guy on the other end gets frustrated or palms you off, with a “I’ll create a bug report”, to the untrained eye, the bug report does not contain enough information for someone to actually fix it and it’s gone into a black hole.
3. You call Redhat, you hit your head against a brick wall for a few days, finally the guy says, it’s a bug in mysql/apache/perl and we just package it, when they get round to fixing it and we get round to packaging it, the bug will be fixed
4. You call redhat, you have simplified the problem to a very simple case, the guy does not get it, and after a lot of banging your head against a brick wall, you are told the way you are using the s/w is pushing it too far, you say well that’s how race conditions show themselves. Blank stare hang up.

really? you analysed the attack vectors and discovered the exploitation and looked at the numbers and the majority were java
Then you rolled up your sleeves and walked around the dozen or so desktops in your company and uninstalled java.
Is that the story, cause I call bullshit

me sayz, help desk guys, removes java from pc, cause read something somewhere negative about java

what's this "feels heavy" that can not possibly be from a user POV, I've never heard a user talk about how heavy an app is!
secondly what in the 3 monkeys do you mean by missing important UI hooks, like what ? html has very simple UI and look at gmail / gdocs. tell me a bit more about the important hooks vs say html or flash. or is that another "feeling"

It seems that more and more mathematicians are using a new, high level language named "research student".
