Comment Re:AES (Score 1) 50

I thought the whole point of asymmetric keys is that you can send the "encode" key in band and keep the secret "decode" key yourself.

If you're exchanging symmetric keys over IP wouldn't someone in the middle be able to sniff it out?

>if 3DES and Blowfish are symmetric, and they are used over the Internet, someone must have figured out how to exchange the key that I don't know about.

>off to quick research
>find out about diffie-hellman key exchange of symmetric keys

I know far too little about cryptography but this sent me in a good direction.

Thanks.

Other courts have said that an IP address is not a person.

This is why a lot of other cases haven't advanced. Blindly suing people that might not even exist angers courts (Prenda).

"you're making too much work for the court with nonsense" is what's going to happen.

>reasonable doubt

In civil cases, it's preponderance of the evidence a lesser standard.

Did you run shred on a server after the FBI said it wanted the data on it?

HILLARY CLINTON AND HER TEAM DID NOT DO THIS.

My god, this is like the fifth person to falsely claim that she did in this discussion. Don't you people read jack shit before you post? Or it is all "Beitbart" and the "Weekly World News", Hillary Clinton with space alien? You seriously imagine that the GOP in Congress wouldn't be trying to find her in Contempt if she'd done anything like this? That the FBI wouldn't have done a thing?!?

"In fact, Trey Gowdy did not issue a subpoena until March, months after she she'd done that review. Further, the subpoena was specifically asking for documents pertaining to Libya and the attacks on our facility in Benghazi, documents which, along with tens of thousands of others, she had already given to the Department of State," Merrill said.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the Benghazi panel, called Gowdy's hit Wednesday a "stunt."

"It appears clear that Secretary Clinton was answering a question about whether she deleted emails 'while facing a subpoena,'" Cummings said in a statement Wednesday.

God DAMN do I want silly season to be over, where people will go back to merely lying about their high scores on games, rather than crap like this

You are correct to a point. Cleaning up is a good thing to do before decommissioning a server, but doing that after a subpoena for those emails is called destruction of evidence.

And Hillary Clinton didn't do this, although it's now becoming very apparent that people who dislike her incorrectly imagine that she did,

Um WRONG, her lawyers and her went through said emails then deleted them AFTER they subpoena for them it wasn't before the fact.

Um, YOU are the one who is WRONG. The subpoena was issued in March. They were deleted in thew previous December.

I don't want to spam slashdot with a bunch of redundant posts, but this is just flat out factually incorrect. You can see my other posts where I link to sources.

Here is what we know for a fact, 30k emails WERE deleted after the subpoena.

Again (and I have to repeat myself because this keeps coming up), this is a 100% FALSE assertion.The emails were deleted in December. Gowdy issued the subpoena (and, mind you, only for Benghazi related subjects) in March.

why wouldn't you use a mid-priced prosumer camera like the 5d mark iv primarily for web? there's professional photography done for web only, and you're right - something like an 1d or a phase one back on a medium format camera would probably be overkill.

If you're shooting ONLY for the web, which is mainly what I was referring to...then a DSLR like the 5Dx is overkill.

Now, I do realize that most any great image taken, for print, etc...will *also* likely end up on the web too, no problem.....always nice in the pro area to shoot for print and down-res as needed. But I took the "shoot FOR web" to be someone only shooting for their private website, etc....and in general, these DSLRs would be overkill for them.

And if you consider close to $4K a pop for body ONLY...to be mid priced...whew, you have more disposable income than I do.

Or they could be smart and lock out users when they're moving so fast they're obviously not on foot.

Well, it does throw up messages if you're moving too fast, but if you cut it off completely, they passengers couldn't play, which wouldn't be nice, especially if you have a car load of kids playing. It keeps them busy, you know.

But really there are ALREADY laws on the books against DISTRACTED DRIVING.....how is this any different?

Those laws are quite broad enough..and if you get caught doing so, then they should rip your license up in front of you, and point you towards the nearest tricycle shop, or bus pass station.

But for heaven's sakes, we don't need more laws, etc.

And no, Nintento should not be liable for individual stupidity.
