>60MPH in San Francisco is going to get you some pretty bad fines most of the time
A friend of mine Ubers in SF, and tries to do runs to and from SFO for maximum money. He doesn't live in SF either, but commutes a long way every weekend to work there because the money is so good.
>(1) You're assuming all miles and hours are 'billable', while in reality you would be driving empty towards a pickup and waiting for the next pickup.
There's a pickup fee which offsets this, and in reality you can usually chain together rides.
Also, there's an additional bill per minute if you are in traffic.
If every bank involved agrees the invalid signature is valid, what happens to the money?
Stealing a coin here or there from a wallet that hasn't been touched in a while would be more "practical", and for all we know, is being done now.
Anyone can audit the blockchain, not just miners.
It'd be possible to find every bitcoin not traded in the past 3 years, assert it "lost" then the attacker fraudulently claim them with the attack given, and it's possible he could liquidate after the theft without anyone noticing until he's cashed out.
It's not just miners checking the transactions.
When a single person has control of the blockchain long enough
How would they do that without the private keys?
They get a saw and cut your nice expensive safe open.
And then everyone whines and complains because Apple (or the encrypted device manufacturer) has the knowledge of how to use a saw to cut this type of nice, expensive safe open.
Frankly, I think using the physical device analogy is good though. If the hard-coded decryption key is etched into silicon and only readable by physical access and some very expensive equipment then having an unlock brings us to almost exactly the same point: legal custody (whether of the safe or the device) means that eventually the authorities will be able to get into it with a warrant and/or subpoena.
>There are plenty of people who haven't figured out how much money they're going to end up spending on vehicle maintenance as a result of all that extra driving.
The IRS mileage rate is supposed to be an average cost for operating a vehicle. It is 53.5 cents per mile. Uber pays about twice that per mile in San Francisco. So if you can go at 60 MPH you'll be making about 30 bucks an hour, which is not bad for unskilled labor.
If you're doing it in the cloud there's no reason to pull the data out of the cloud.
I have DC2000 tapes from 1992 that I can still read.
It is better to block it at the SMTP level and refuse to accept the message in the first place.
You might think so, but do you REALLY think any spammer cares about or even looks at the bounces from their spam?
Unfortunately, the only way to "block it at the SMPT level" for users is to return error code 67 (IIRC) from procmail, and that doesn't work if you are using IMAP to pull email from a server that has already taken final delivery.
You're begging the question. SPAM is unwanted mail. You "wanted" it by opting in at some point (probably within the context of a purchase or something).
Someone who doesn't intend to spam will provide an opt-out link. It's 2017, not 2002. Use it.
If you can't reject at the SMTP level then that means you're not running your own mail server. Every ISP or mail service in the last 20 years has maintained abuse accounts and administrators that will accept spam reports and (eventually) configure their systems to reject messages at the SMTP level for you (or pre-filter it). Contact them.
Even if we accept a limit of scope to the First Amendment, they seem to be a bit choosy. Religious liberty, for instance, always seems to get short shrift from them...unless there are Mohammedans involved.
This vague sentence means nothing without context.
