Charging content providers for bandwidth in addition to end users is the opposite of the right idea.
Ransomware typically runs as a normal user, without admin access. Yet it's one of the more devastating forms of malware. It doesn't need admin access to rip through a company's shared drives.
SAP, this is a nice way to price yourself out of existance.
I've been using Pale Moon for a couple years. I hated when Firefox went to the Australis, chrome clone, interface. I hated when Firefox kept deleting features, especially preferences. Pale Moon is lighter, faster, more customizable, and pays more attention to security ideas. They were the first to deal with html5 canvas fingerprinting.
On the down side, I do occasionally find a site that won't work. I'm not entirely sure if it's Pale Moon, or my combination of script and ad blockers. It's usually a fluff entertainment site, and I don't care enough to turn them all off, or fire up chrome.
If you use firefox, or a derivative, put this in your user.js file (or set it through about:config).
Um, I think you lost a zero. The speed of light in a vacuum is 299792458 meters per second, so your 300,000 km/s figure is more than close enough. However, in a single mode glass fiber, it's about 2/3 of that, around 200,000 km/s. 3000 km / 200,000 is 15 ms, and the round trip would be a minimum of 30 ms.
The article only deals with power cuts. What about fiber data line cuts? We had a squirrel chew through one of our WAN links, inside a conduit. I can't imagine that could have tasted good.
This one was a possible paedophile. Since it was only one photo, it was probably something sent to him, or from a popup on some random website.
What else do they look for? Credit card numbers? Tax records? Other identity theft info? Anything embarrassing they can ransom?
The other problem is they used a tool to scan unallocated space for deleted files. That takes time. Are they charging customers for that extra time?
That's going to make it a lot harder to cover your camera. The spooks will love it.
Thank you. That's an amazing story. I thought I had read everything by Asimov, but I somehow missed that one.
Specifically, they managed to do addition, with modulus, and without any overflow detection, in multi-state ReRAM. Basicly, each cell can hold an analog level, that can be read as 0 through 5. You write it by resetting it to 0, then hitting it with the right constant current for the right amount of time to set it to a particular value, for example 3. If you skip the reset part, and write a 2, the effects add, and the cell ends up with a 5. If you write too much, it wraps around. Theoretically, you could use this to add two vectors by writing one, then the other. However, any overflow would be lost. Maybe it could be useful for crypto hashes and stuff like that.
IP addresses are not people.
IP addresses are not people. That does not prevent them from using IPs to sue you. Then you have to spend lots of money for defence lawyers.
