I'm pretty sure you NOT know any of them either. I think the point of the post was big corps run DC and that lately party names turn out to be different marketing campaigns to appeal to market/voting segments. No matter which group/party gets into power many things remain the same regardless of what was promised during the campaign.

Has there been an update to the second garage fire? If you know more then you should post up the information. The last I heard was "In this particular case, we don't yet know the precise cause, but have definitively determined that it did not originate in the battery, the charging system, the adapter or the electrical receptacle, as these components were untouched by the fire."

If that is true then that that leaves. 1) the car batteries 2) something that was brought into the vehicle 3) something external to the vehicle 4) ?????

Slashdotters love good coverup stories, etc but you gotta back them up with more than headlines.

Thank you. I like to check out this market niche from time to time. My main concern with some of these types of products is their complexity. When things go bad, very bad, I don't want to have to getting a multi-tier app by having to troubleshoot a remote DB, web server, etc just to retrieve a rarely used password. I have yet to find an app as simple as keypass, etc. that is multi-user but I will keep looking.

For now we use one of the mentioned free single user products with multiple password files. There is a master file that will get you the password for all of the other files that are organized per dept/group.

Submission + - US cord cutters getting snubbed from broadcaster's olympic coverage online ( 1

Monoman writes: The is reporting: "The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics start tonight. But if you're among the 9 percent of U.S. households who have broadband but don't subscribe to paid television, it will be nearly impossible to (legally) watch the games online this year." ... "That's because while NBC is streaming all of the events live online, full access to the livestream will only be available to paying cable subscribers."

Is this money play by Comcast/NBC to get some subscribers back? Should the FCC step in and require NBC to at least provide a stream of their OTA content?

Exactly. The look doesn't really need improving. It has stood the test of Internet time. Plenty of new sites have come and gone yet /. remains. If you want to make improvements then consider asking the users what they would consider improvements. Examples of something you might want to discuss: the ability to edit our posts .. even if for a short time.

No matter what - if you do decide to change the look anyway then be sure to leave an option for existing users to keep the classic interface.

So what are you proposing instead?

I think the whole point of HTTPS Everywhere is that using it is better than not using it. Some say the improvement is marginal at best. Some say it isn't an improvement at all. What none of the naysayers are saying is how they are doing it better.

As security increases, convenience decreases.
