actually, I think there's only one Autobahn now that has no speed limits. Everywhere else is pretty much Euro standard.
Really? Because just about everywhere that I can cross the dutch -> german border there is no speedlimit. That's all the same autobahn you say? Wow, so it must be 300 kilometers wide
The EU has a law from (2005-ish?) that requires all email headers for inbound/outbound users located in the EU be sent to EU-based law enforcement.
Nope. There is a requirement to log MAIL FROM / RCPT TO fields and keep those around for the "data-retention" time (differs between countries, 6 months to 2 years). It basically comes down to "set the rotate time for sendmail logs to 6 months". There is no information automatically sent to law enforcement. What's more, a lot of the EU countries have not implemented this directive in national law yet (unfortunately my country has).
The internal linux kernel API is not set in stone, but the ABI for applications that run on the kernel is. You can start applications from 1998 on a 3.0 linux kernel from this year, and they will run.
Woah that takes me back

(No this is not a rick-roll. It's worse. )
You replace the menus with a single tiny menu, then put everything on the same line.
As far as I can see the directive would require ISPs to record what sites I visit, not what I do on them. Isn’t this what they already do?
No, ISPs do not record what sites you visit. At least none that I know of (and I work in the industry). Why would they ? It would be outrageously expensive, for no gain.
Isn’t that information already available following a warrant anyway?
Well no, as ISPs do not record what sites you visit. They can put a tap on your line after a warrant though (Lawful Intercept), but that is for one user specifically, and nothing is recorded- a copy of the data that passes over the line is just sent in real-time to the justice department.
Not just any woman.
Rember that Microsoft got fined hundreds of millions ?
Heard about the windows7 browser selection tool ?
That was all her work, actually.Until last year she was the European Competition Commissioner.
Where there's a will, there's a relative.
