Comment Re:Change our clothes (Score 1) 582

Of course, the matter of all the people changing into those clothes - and putting away their own clothes, and putting them back again - is irrelevant. No mention of the facilities that would allow dozens or hundreds of people to change at the same time in time for their flights. Nevermind the distribution and recovery of the uniforms. Nor the fact that your own clothes would go with you on the hand baggage, which puts your 'security solution' back at square -20.

Seriously, think things through before posting. The article speaks against exactly this 'security theatre' kind of half-assed bullshit.

You do realize that if photoshop was somehow available as an OS/FS package for Ubuntu, it still wouldn't go in the Ubuntu CD for the exact same reasons cited for GIMP?

"the UI is too complex, it takes up room on the disc, and 'desktop users just want to edit photos and they can do that in F-Spot.'"

Those same reasons are valid for PS.

It just sounds really implausible to me that somehow lawyers cannot actually work in Schenectady because the laws aren't published. Over here, laws aren't binding until published in the official bulletin, which you can find at least in the Library of Congress (no, this is not the USA).

Maybe you cannot find a single volume updated to yesterday, but I find it much easier to believe everything is available somehow (and no, I don't necessarily think they should be free, though at least you could go to a library).

By your own quote, even if he actually found the disk he wanted, it would then be outdated immediately.

Lastly, the problem you mention in your latest post isn't particular to this issue, but to every congress and law body that hasn't got an immediate transcription of the law available on the web.

Oh, cool. Then I guess you missed where they noted that

But Eiss also indicated he might find it sufficient to review a paper copy of the code, as needed, at a library.

White said copies of the code, with updates early this year, are on file at the Schenectady Public Library, Schenectady County Supreme Court Library, the Schenectady County Community College Library and several other locations.

No, it seems you don't think that documents can be available if not on the Internet. Hint: how do you think mankind has published laws so far? And how could you get a copy of your local code of law until now? And what do you think is stopping you from doing so? And what part of 'will be available for free after the work is done' did you not understand?

If you want, right now, the package of laws as they offer it, you pay that price. How is that different from the bookseller offering the code as a book and charging for it?

Furthermore, from the article:
