AT&T Suggests To 300K Employees To Lobby the FCC 239

Several readers sent in the news that AT&T's top lobbyist sent a letter to all 300,000 employees urging them to give feedback to the FCC as it gears up for rulemaking on net neutrality. He even supplied talking points approved by the PR department. The lobbyist, Jim Cicconi, suggested that employees use their personal email accounts when they weigh in with the FCC. Pro-net-neutrality group Free Press has now likened Cicconi's letter to astroturfing: "Coming from one of the company’s most senior executives, it’s hard to imagine AT&T employees thinking the memo was merely a suggestion."

Submission + - Does P2P Streaming Media Have a Future? (blogspot.com)

shadowmage13 writes: "After reading that streaming will overtake downloads, at least in music, my interest in P2P internet radio/TV has been rekindled. Years ago, there were a couple of projects showing promise, but today IceShare, PeerCast, and FreeCast have all been inactive for a long time. There are obviously technical limitations that make P2P media streaming difficult, but proprietary options exist, and I just don't see the technology taking off without an open source solution. I always thought this had a lot of potential. What happened to these projects, are there others, and does this have a future?"

If it's the same bug I kept hitting, try this:

edit /etc/initramfs-tools/modules to include on a line by itself "ac" and then run: update-initramfs -c -k all

Short version: if the ac module is loaded, it boots fine. Something wonky in ACPI. This worked for me in 8.10, at least.
