Comment Free wifi routers (Score 1) 189

My experience with ISPs that supply a free WiFi router is that they will supply the cheapest POS that they can. The WiFi has been crap with drop outs, dead zones requiring the whole thing to be reset. My Airport express has always just sat there, working, excellent coverage. I have my USB printer plugged into it, and that works just fine. I guess after all the promises and delays the Mac mini will be DOA too as will the Mac Pro.

There is growing concern over stuff like this. DNA tests often only test a small subset of information which means that false positives are possible and when you have a whole database to match against the greater that chance of a false positive happening.

We already know that law enforcement is sloppy, lazy, and corrupt. Until accuracy and better controls on this data have been instituted then this is going to result in more innocent people getting fucked over while the real criminals get of Scott free with society ignorantly believe it has its man.

Sounds like a plausible explanation of how you might break compatibility. However, given that the new protocol had no noticeable effect on the user experience - and given how quickly they reversed it probably no non-noticeable benefits either - that still suggests a dubious motivation for making it.

How do you KNOW it had no noticeable effect on User Experience? Have you horse-raced all the combinations of firmwares and displays?

Maybe Apple just decided that the difference wasn't worth the negative press. Unfortunately, we'll probably never know.

What used to cost us $60 cost over $150 when we dropped cable. We went from 20Mb to 100Mb, picked up Netflix, Hulu & Prime (commercial free, multi-viewer packages) and still came out at least $40 cheaper a month. We can't watch everything we might want, but we can always find things we actually want to watch.

Split the hair any way you like. Cable's been constantly rising in price and there's no added value for the added cost. Cable isn't worth the money any more.

I have to say I find it fascinating that when I express an opinion on a discussion board I get the functional equivalent of "$10,000, Rick". This is clearly a touchy subject for some of you.

Since you clearly don't believe your own predictions, why should anyone else believe you?

I've had the card about a month, it cost me $105.35, and I've already got my fee back in the equivalent saved movie ticket prices, even tho I get the $8.50 senior price.

We're entering a time when its less lucrative, the summer, when the big movie providers only provide 1 movie per week. OK, will buy them too. Am going to enjoy the next 11 months, and may or may not renew with Moviepass. Probably, if they still have a single price for 4 movies per month.

Computers are becoming more so, but they're not there yet for all writing systems. Before Unicode, you could do ASCII-based alphabets just fine, but anything else was variable. (Hint: /.)

There's still lots more to supporting a writing system than having code points for all the letters. Even after Unicode was invented, Arabic script was hard for a long time--not only right-to-left, but also with some characters that changed shape depending on their position in a word. There's an entire block of Unicode which is a kludgy solution to this problem (Arabic Presentation Forms). Fortunately, fonts have caught up, and that block is no longer strictly necessary for Naskh or Kufic styles. The Nasta'liq style of Arabic script (which is, btw, quite beautiful as a script) has been approximated with less or more success for some time; SIL recently came out with a Nasta'liq font that is quite nice (IMO). But it wasn't long ago--maybe a decade (and for all I know, more recently)--that Urdu newspapers were written by calligraphers (humans!) and then printed by photo-offset, because Nasta'liq is so hard to get right.

Another script that can still be difficult to render well on computers is Burmese. Indic scripts aren't that easy; some versions of TeX (notably LuaTeX) don't do well with Indic fonts (including those for both Indo-Aryan and Dravidian languages). (But XeTeX does well with virtually all of these, afaik.)

And the last time I checked (maybe five years ago), Java-based apps mess up on Thaana (used for writing Dhivehi). There's been a bug report on that for a long time (ever since I noticed the bug--the folks at XMLMind submitted the report, IIRC), but afaik it's still not fixed.

Submission + - A Big Deal for Small Business | Rosemont Capital Solutions | Duluth, Ga (rosemontcapitalsolutions.com)

rosemontcapital writes: The results are clear: Tax reform is working. As you know, a growing list of top businesses are sharing the benefits of historic tax cuts with workers.

While many companies handing out bonuses are household names (i.e. Disney and Walmart), there are scores of small businesses doing the same.

As Speaker Ryan said last week, “In less than eight weeks, we have tracked nearly 350 companies that have handed out bonuses as a result of tax reform . . . and we know that there are plenty of other small businesses who are doing the same that are just doing it under the radar.”

In fact, according to a recent survey, confidence among small-business owners just hit a record high, driven by tax reform. Small businesses are the engine of our economy, so this means more jobs and more opportunity in communities across the country.

Here is a handful of the many recent examples of how tax reform is working for America’s small businesses:

Haciendas at Grace Village: This New Mexico-based assisted living and memory care facility announced that it will be hiring more employees and be giving existing employees a pay raise. CEO Gary Coppedge said, “The decision was not firmly made until the tax reform went through.”

  Xante Corp.: Located in Mobile, Alabama, this small business provides high-end printers and related software. After enactment of tax reform, with Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL) on hand, CEO Robert Ross handed out$1,200 bonus checks to employees. Ross said the new tax law “allows us to fund new businesses within our business,” and would lead to “a new level of growth for our company.”

  Citizens Bank of West Virginia: All 66 of Citizens Bank employees received a $1,000 bonus earlier this week. Citizens Board Chairman Max L. Armentrout said, “There are several ways we will put the tax savings to work for Citizens. However, we are most excited about paying this bonus to the great employees we have working at our bank, serving our customers and shareholders.” One employee said, “This money is going to go a long way in helping me pay down my college loan.”

Firstly the one thing people need to understand is that the data mining that has been going on is by third parties through Facebook's APIs with API keys aka Facebook Apps, that anyone has the ability to create and get immediate public access to Facebook's user base without any scrutiny from Facebook. Now they've made a number of revisions to their APIs and wound back a lot of the privileges however the lack of scrutiny is the issue.

Developing apps on most other platforms which open up users in an ecosystem to data mining by a third party usually involves submitting the app to the company that created the ecosystem. The process of getting an app published on Google or Apples market places is quite involved. Many apps never get authorised by Google's/Apple's platforms due to the app not meeting the platforms technical or privacy standards.

What Facebook needs is to stop this free for all public access to their APIs and restrict public access to apps that have passed some form of review process administered by a team at Facebook.

Nah apa saja alasan yang dimaksud itu sebetulnya? Anda akan menemukan jawabannya dalam beberapa tulisan berikut ini:

Apakah anda sudah tahu apa saja alasannya? Nah terkadang alasan satu orang dengan orang yang lain memiliki beberapa perbedaan dalam bermain judi bola. Nah kalau ada banyak perbedaan, lalu alasan mana yang kiranya benar-benar logis dan bagus juga untuk dijadikan sebagai inspirasi.

Dalam hal ini, anda harus bisa memahami dengan baik kalau memang alasan itu bisa anda tetapkan dulu dengan matang diawal agar and apunya semangat yang jelas dan tinggi saat akan coba untuk mengikuti permainan yang dimaksud dalam bola88.

Kalau memang tak punya alasan yang kuat, biasanya permainan dijalankan dengan hanya setengah hati tidak dengan fokus dan konsisten. Padahal konsistensi bisa sangat berpengaruh sekali pada hasil yang bisa anda dapatkan nantinya.

Sistem Permainan yang Praktis dan Fleksibel
Alasan utama yang menjadikan permainan tersebut kian diminati adalah karena memang sistem permainan bola88 dalam versi online itu sangat mudah sekali. Anda akan menemukan kemudahan dalam hal tersebut sehingga semuanya akan bisa menjadi bahan pertimbangan baik.

Anda harus bisa mengerti dan juga harus bisa mengetahui akan pentingnya pemilihan cara yang lebih bagus dan lebih bijak dijalankan.

Tak hanya itu, anda juga bisa memainkan game dengan cara praktis pula yakni dimana saja dan kapan saja anda mau.

Jadwal Pertandingan Tiap Hari
Alasan lainnya adalah karena setiap hari ada jadwal pertandingan yan digelar. Perlu diingat bahwa tak mungkin ada taruhan jika tak ada pertandingan yang digelar. Nah dalam taruhan sepak bola, semua itu akan selalu didasarkan pada jadwal even pertandingan sehingga barulah kemudian anda bisa bertaruh disana.

Kalau memang tak ada jadwal yang ditawarkan, maka anda jangan harap bisa mendapatkan kemudahan dalam mengakses pertandingan nantinya. Silahkan anda simak beberapa jadwal yang ada tiap harinya, dan kemudian barulah anda pikirkan mau bertaruh di liga yang mana dan untuk pertandingan tim yang mana.

Banyak Bonus dan Promo Keuntungan Lain

bonus sebagai pilihan. Ada banyak sumber penting dan terpercaya lain yang harus anda coba pikirkan dan perhatikan dengan seksama.

First, the linked article links to a much better summary written by one of the team members, Matt Woolley. I recommend you read it instead:
https://theconversation.com/ex...

Second, the summary conflates *mass* with *distance*. The experimenters claim to have entangled remarkably massive objects (compared to the mass of atoms, for example). But the summary says 'any attempt to increase the sizes has caused problems with stability' and that, taken literally, is not true. For example, here's an experiment from 1998 in which entanglement was maintained over a distance of kilometers:

Finally, the summary claims 'a major step forward in our understanding of quantum physics' but I doubt that. It sounds to me like a major accomplishment but one that *confirms* our previous understanding of quantum physics in more massive systems.

I have a Time Capsule, and it has been working flawlessly since I got it, as an internal router. It has been regularly patched, and although it doesn't have advanced functionality (manual ACLs in and out, so I can block port 25 outgoing just for sanity reasons), it has been decent. The Time Capsule also is a decent NAS, although with it being a single drive unit, one still needs a secondary backup system for documents, just in case.

For being a primary backup device, with documents backed up via a separate method, it was pretty close to ideal.

I just hope Apple opens the Time Capsule "protocol". Synology and QNAP devices support it, but it would be nice if any CIFS/SMB share could be used for remote Time Machine backups.

As for a router, it is hard to find a vendor with a good security reputation. Apple hasn't had many attacks against its AirPort routers, and they patched often. I wonder what a good home router vendor is that is a suitable replacement. Of course, the best answer would be a PFSense appliance, but it would be nice to have a mainstream vendor with a good reputation for security (as in no backdoors "accidentally" left behind).

I sometimes talk about cord cutting with my elderly fixed income customers, but it's not a rewarding experience. They find the alternatives confusing, and I haven't figured out a good way to explain things to them. Even just clarifying that cancelling 'cable' is not the same thing as cancelling all services from their cable company involves more time than one would think. Then I find I have to start getting into:

Bandwidth caps: "I like to have the tv on in the background 16 hours a day"
Service confusion: "What channels do I watch? I don't know."
Lack of a familiar interface: "How do I surf channels?"

What usually breaks me is when they mention in passing that they have a "VIP" bundle. When I have to get into alternative voip services and devices on top of streaming services and devices, it's time for me to give up. At that point I've been clarifying stuff for fifteen minutes and have to help someone else google the right ink for their printer.
