Okay, I'll calm down. I agree, they will get cheaper.

Why is this asshole getting upvoted? Laser printer counterfeits aren't worth shit, 3D printers need to be >$40,000 to make any gun mechanism useable, and unless this duncecap is being sarcastic, he should be taken out back and shot with a zip gun.

Hey dipshit, You need a ~$50,000 3D printer to make anything of an accuracy that will actually fire. Otherwise, it'll blow up in their face. You really think making a 3D printer is that easy?! Cunt. It's easier to use a steel tube and a stapler. People like you are the ones keeping us on this fucking mudball.

Submission + - Tor Researchers' Tool Aims To Map Out Internet Censorship-> 1 1

Sparrowvsrevolution writes: Tor developers Arturo Filasto and Jacob Appelbaum have released OONI-probe, an open-source software tool designed to be installed on any PC and run to collect data about local meddling with the computer’s network connections, whether it be website blocking, surveillance or selective bandwidth slowdowns. Unlike other censorship tracking projects like HerdictWeb or the Open Net Initiative, OONI will allow anyone to run the testing application and share their results publicly. The tool has already been used to expose censorship by T-Mobile of its prepaid phones' browser and also by the Palestinian Authority, which was found to be blocking opposition websites. The minister responsible for the Palestinian censorship was forced to resign last week.
