Comment WPA2-Enterprise (Score 3, Informative) 884

* Use enterprise auth to a RADIUS server with an LDAP backend?
* Lower the transmit power to something that just works within your place?
* Use just A or just B or just N? Maybe they're on older tech?
* Configure your router not to well, route. Use it as just an AP and you have to manually set the IP info on your machines, and the router is not *.*.*.1 on the network.
* Do the above, but use an external VPN for all of your traffic. A static route in the router gets you onto the VPN.
* Change your SSID to something threatening to indicate that you're onto them and that you asked Slashdot how to make them stop?

Comment Companies should focus on esports titles (Score 1) 951

To answer the question directly, right now, for me, it's Borderlands 2.

Companies should focus Linux game development on tried-and-true esports titles, such as Counter-Strike (Source/Global Offensive), Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 2, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, StarCraft 2, DotA 2, Call of Duty, etc. Fortunately, some of those are Valve titles already headed to Linux. Heroes of Newerth has a Linux version that works pretty well, and will certainly only get better.

What's it going to take to convince Activision Blizzard to port its big games to Linux?

Moreover, what's it going to take to get developers of Mac games to port to Linux, because they're apparently pretty easy to port to Linux once on OS X.

This is a great reminder to contact your Representative and ask them to support the latest iteration of the H.R. 3806 One Subject at a Time Act in the House and Sen. Paul's version S. 3359 One Subject at a Time Act in the Senate. Both bills are endorsed by DownsizeDC, which is one of the originators of the idea, according to their site.

Comment Re:10 Amendment (Score 1) 247

I meekly proffer the 4th Amendment, but recognize that the relevance is weak since the intention of the 4th Amendment is to prohibit government from unreasonable search and seizure, not employers as a condition of employment.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

I suppose that prohibiting employers from asking for network account passwords unrelated to one's job falls under the same rationalization as what prevents employers from asking about another things in your life -- the same logic permitting the federal government's anti-discrimination laws (which may be tied to financing, which is why states then adopt the laws themselves and actually do the enforcement).
