wiredog writes "From The Washington Post comes news that the FCC is preparing to propose net neutrality rules on Monday. Quoting: '[FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski] will discuss the rules Monday during a keynote speech at The Brookings Institute. He isn't expected to drill into many details, but the proposal will specifically be for an additional guideline on how operators like AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast can control what goes on their networks. That additional guideline would prevent the operators from discriminating, or act as gatekeepers, of Web content and services. ... The agency is expected to review what traffic management is reasonable and what practices are discriminatory. The guidelines are known as "principals" at the agency, which some public interest groups have sought to codify so that they would clearly be enforceable.'"
That depends on the airport, and the gates. I flew through Kansas City once (never again) and every gate had TSA probes. Every other airport where I have had to transfer, I was lucy enough to be in the same area as the arriving flight.
Can I change my vote? I was counting round trips with transfers as ONE. Silly me.
4. No meeting, class, or gathering should last more than a micro-century. Do the math; 365.2425 x 100 = days in century x 1440 = minutes in a century / 1M = Maximum meeting time. Minimum 0, so 40 minutes does fall within the law.
I'm retired so I don't get paid as such. I get up in the morning with nothing to do, and go to bed at night with only half of it done. I like to ride my bicycle almost every day, so expending energy to move my jewels/mASS has to count for some definition of work.
What about wireless network names? Drive around sometime with wifi-radar or one of the other hotspot scanners and you may discover My Network: NoNetHere or NoneThere, depending on how you parse. One of my machines is NowHere or is it NoWhere? No particular theme, just what pops out while setting a machine up. So I end up with names like M00, P00, anonxmous, y0da, etla (Extended or Enhanced or Expanded Three Letter Acronym), etcetera.
I worked in upstate NY, and retired from there and moved to Florida... it is the law! Have not had a hurricane since I got an emergency generator. As far as losing internet connectivity, I have wireless, you insensitive clod.
Coutal writes: Licensing is usually looked upon as a burden by software customers, although one we're grudgingly used to living with. However, at times one encounters new lows which can still invoke sufficient outrage — a stealable license. Recently, my i-go based pocket pc navigation unit was stolen. However, I still retained my valid serial number, certificate of authenticity, proof of purchase and even a backup of the software. I figured restoring my software to another device should be a matter of unit service or (tops) minimal fee for media restoration. Tech support, however, had other ideas in mind. They informed me that my license was stolen with the unit. No amount of explanation of the lack of logic in that statement made through. They insisted that my backups were also void because I no longer have the original SD card and that I am not allowed to use them (which kind of defeats the whole purpose of backup, as the device only stores extremely little other data than the original software — no more than a few points of interest and marginal settings).
