>Do you believe rehabilitation is impossible or do you want revenge?
I don't believe that someone who commits mass murder can be rehabilitated, no. It isn't about revenge; it's about public safety.
Someone once pointed out that hoping a rapist gets raped in prison isn't a victory for his victim(s), because it somehow gives him what he had coming to him, but it's actually a victory for rape and violence. I wish I could remember who said that, because they are right. The score doesn't go Rapist: 1 World: 1. It goes Rape: 2.
What this man did is unspeakable, and he absolutely deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison. If he needs to be kept away from other prisoners as a safety issue, there are ways to do that without keeping him in solitary confinement, which has been shown conclusively to be profoundly cruel and harmful.
Putting him in solitary confinement, as a punitive measure, is not a victory for the good people in the world. It's a victory for inhumane treatment of human beings. This ruling is, in my opinion, very good and very strong for human rights, *precisely* because it was brought by such a despicable and horrible person. It affirms that all of us have basic human rights, even the absolute worst of us on this planet.
This is precisely why I lost all interest in Oculus the instant I heard that it had been acquired by Facebook.
If enough of us ask nicely, or not so nicely, the FTC might sue them.

This is the official address for reporting antitrust violations. I think trying to leverage the near universal presence of old versions of Windows on PCs worldwide to force acceptance of the new version qualifies as abuse of market position. The FTC might agree with enough public comment/complaint. People who have experienced the "involuntary upgrade" problem are likely to be especially influential. If you know anyone who has experienced this, pass that address along to them.
Sorry, you're out-of-date. Federal Appeals Court last year ruled that border guards DO need probable cause to search such things as computers and phones under most circumstances. The only exceptions are circumstances which would also be exceptions away from the border.
The current legality of border searches of electronic property isn't fully settled (see e.g. wikipedia), but the case you're linking is completely unrelated to that issue. The decision doesn't discuss border exceptions -- from the court's perspective, it's a regular arrest and search, and they follow the Supreme Court's recent ruling in Riley v. California (requiring a warrant for searches of a cell phone found during an arrest).
^^^ This. They should have thought to include an option like that because voting "roughly the same" implies that you watch tv at least some. I stopped watching all but news in the mid-90s, and pretty much gave up even on news by the turn of the millennium.
Funny how the exact same complaints were said about PulseAudio when it came out 10 years ago.. my god the complaints, and flame wars.. and bitching about how Every Single DIstro was fooling, and not smart, and ruining linux.. Funny thing is, pulse audio works pretty darn well, and has many nice features ALSA didn't have. Even solaris rus it now.....
Same Lead developer too...
I find it hilarious that some people seem think that every single diistro has not even thought about same problems they came up with in 3 minutes.. I'm sure they just latched on, because of the slick glossy sales brochures...
Some argue the opposite. For example, the majority of people in my area do not speak spanish. Spanish language stations essentially make nothing per subscriber (pennies). If, I was instead able to extract a few dollars a month from each person that wants to view my show.. (ie, spanish speakers in the midwest) that might (depending on the number of people) be much, much more income.
I setup all our Oracle databases.. (Many, many of them). Only port 1521 is open in iptables. (actually, for some, I have secondary listeners).. The Junipers also ONLY allow access on port 1521, (and a secondary, if specified)
I have never had issues connecting to the database.
That is possible, and has been for a while, but I don't want all of my traffic going to Missouri first
Charter's Ipv6 website hasn been saying its coming "soon" since about 2011. Last time I called the NOC, and our regional sales people (I'm a fiber customer of theirs) nobody could give me any time frame, area, or any other information about when they plan to start testing it for customers.
Without looking, what is the IP address of slashdot? Oh, you don't care because there is DNS?
Take everything in stride. Trample anyone who gets in your way.
