Submission + - Anonymous Helps Find Evidence in Gang Rape Case (itworld.com)

jfruh writes: "Evidence of a gang rape committed by members of an Ohio high school football team, including video, was, in the way of digital native teenagers today, put online on various social media sites — and was quickly taken down as students began realizing the magnitude of the situation. The hactivist group Anonymous has been able to find archived and cached versions of the damning content, which may help prosecutors make their case."

Perhaps you can help clear up a debate that has been happening on and off for years.

Is it really necessary to space the channels so far apart? It seems to be a conventional wisdom that flies in the face of the intent of the standard. Sure, the spectrum does overlap somewhat, but isn't the protocol and the air interface designed to handle this situation gracefully?

It sure does in the city where we have multiple APs coming in five-by-five on each and every channel.

Thanks in advance!

Comment Building is decades obsolete (Score 5, Informative) 227

The One Times Square building is decades obsolete for an office building. However, as a mounting point for the multimedia signs, it is very functional. The empty floors provide power and space for the equipment required to run the signs and the massive equipment required to cool the equipment that runs the signs.

Plus, it's at the crossroads of the world.

The government is not "screw[ing] over the little guy" as you so eloquently put it. The non-road diesel fuel is dyed specifically because that fuel's tariff does not carry road tax. Road tax pays for the roads. This is what the situation is really about. So many violators were using non-road fuel that they had to take steps.

All licensed truck drivers implicitly understand that you do not put non-road/farm fuel into a road vehicle if you intend to keep that vehicle in revenue service. It's intuitively obvious to everyone, but it's too bad your drivers were either ignorant of the law or chose not to follow it.
