i am a sri lankan living in sri lanka, and i am (officially) sinhalese
i am not blaming you, far from it. but saying that a white person running with a laptop would probably be treated far FAR differently from a POC doing the same thing

Supposedly this patent is from 2010..
but according to this article "[Search by sketch] was mentioned in years 2007, 2010 and sometime in the late 90s"
if that is the case then there should be enough prior art to invalidate the patent for this concept
... according to google is
The use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.
*The use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.*
how many governments does that definition cover?
how many politicians?
as someone who was born, (mostly) grew up in, and currently lives in, a country where the term "terrorism/terrorist" is used in SO many contexts -
unfortunately, "terrorist" has become a new witch-hunt word - equal in power (or a VERY close second to "pedo")
i think it is time that we ALL start identifying ourselves as terrorists.. because close to every political statement we make - including "seriously.. can you imagine life with THAT guy in office" while standing at the water cooler - can be construed as terrorism..
this is one of the reasons that the UN has yet to define terrorism.. because if they were to do so, many - in fact, most - governments would fall under the "terrorist" definition.
my advice; call, email, write a letter, send a pigeon to senator leiberman (and any others supporting this bill and tell them "you are not with us. you are not with the terrorists. you ARE a terrorist".. maybe they will get the clue

in that case, throwing all their effort into TX would make sense for creationists (kind of like the US electoral system). and with that kind of marketing directed at them, it makes it even more laudable that TX DIDN'T pass it.

10 years ago, i was flying from london to sri lanka via jordan airport.
I had a DJ magazine with me for a DJ friend in sri lanka, and lacking anything to read on the flight, i had it in my hand.
the guy at immigration saw the magazine in my bag and wanted to take a look. i knew what was going on, and i also knew that hte magazine didn't have anything they could even REMOTELY consider "lascivious" so i let him have it.
he leafed through a few pages and asked me (with great disappointment) "no mwah mwah mwah?" while kissing his hand.
i had a hard time NOT telling him that i was an IT geek, and we can get our "mwah mwah mwah" from the internet.
the point i am trying to make is that when you try to suppress a biological impulse, nay NECESSITY, people will find a way to get access to it.
they are trying to implement a pornwall in sri lanka as well. a year ago the government blocked ELEVEN sites. now they want to block a hundred. I know the guys in charge of the pornwall. I know their abilities. i know at least two of them are in a porn mailing list that has been in existence in one form or the other since 1998
i would REALLY doubt it was incompetence on the part of the people running the firewall. that is created to make the politicians and the religious extremists feel better.
if the IT guys wanted to take down a site, they would, but most of them really don't want to, and really don't care. as far as they are concerned, they are doing their jobs, but when it comes to things like this "their job" is the bare minimum they are forced to do.
There are no such women.
Yes there are. I'm married to one. Talk about geek heaven...
so.. umm.. she got a sister?
