My credit card is Chip and PIN preferred and it was wonderful using it in Europe last week.
Unfortunately, it was issued by Diners Club (a Mastercard) and they stopped accepting applications.
AC posts are part of Slashdot culture. If you want to change the site into something unrecognizable, then eliminate AC.
If the trolling bugs you, read at +1.
What's needed are smarter, more practical mod labels.
I was thinking the same thing and just did a bit of reading (http://www.imediaconnection.com/articles/ported-articles/blogs/2012/dec/verizon-announces-end-of-900-number-billing/).
It looks like the only thing politicians did to kill it was ban phone sex. It was mainly killed by greedy, incompetent carriers.
US Premium numbers are no longer available. UK numbers are easily available - register at http://www.phonepayplus.org.uk...
Note that you would be breaching the ToS for your premium number - they require you to notify all 'customers' that they're calling a premium rate number. So while it's easy to set up, I think you'd be cut off pretty quickly too.
I think they'll catch on because I want one, and I assume most other people have similar wants to me.
Wait. Are we talking hot schoolgirl panties or babushka bloomers?
+1 Insightful. Spent all my mod points yesterday, so have a virtual one.
Umm... this is just a SWAG, but I estimate that the cost of recovering gold from an asteroid is orders of magnitude than recovering it from the Earth's core. Heck, we haven't even reached the mantle with the most ambitious drilling program.
run time in reverse (JUST IN THE SIMULATION)
Thanks for that clarification. Wouldn't want to get a ticket for a causality violation or anything...
Call it what it is: religiously fundamentalist motivated mass murder.
It wasn't terrorism. It was most certainly NOT intended to bring about any political or policy change, or even make a political statement.
It was lethal grade bigotry, inspired by a fundamentalist upbringing - fundamentalist Islam vs Christian is moot.
Whoever thought this was a good idea is a fucking idiot.
This has been a feature of Yahoo Web Mail for years, and I would wager it was conceived at GMail, though I don't use it so I'm only guessing.
When you paste a URL into Yahoo Mail you get a little mini menu that allows you to make it just a plain hyperlink, or even plaintext. I'm hoping Apple steals that too.
No Facebook, no Twitter, no Gmail, no LinkedIn. I refuse to let my personal information, social connections, and browsing habits be used as fodder for profit. I'm an old school NNTP nerd who still believes that spam means repetition, autoplay video is a crime against humanity, and anonymity is a fundamental right.
My lawn? Have a field day. It's vast and vigorous. I might even come out and play hackey sack with you... Just don't ask me for ID.
Waze has methods of dealing with this. It's called a private installation...
But we don't just go putting them anywhere arbitrarily. We rely on local governments and DOTs to tell us where to put them. How? By determining if it's a private road or if there are regulatory signs prohibiting through traffic.
So if the homeowners don't want traffic routed through their neighborhood they need to go to their local government and get that done. Then soon as that's legally accomplished, then us editors for Waze will take the steps to prevent through routing through the neighborhood.
The cities need to sue Waze.
No. The city needs to put up a sign that says no through traffic and us Waze editors will make it a private installation. https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Pri...
