do you think a law banning having sexual intercourse with your menstruating wife has no motive?
I'm not saying you're wrong, but I'm having trouble thinking of a motive for this one.
Agreed. But please keep port 25 closed to those home servers. My spam folder is bursting at the seams right now from all the broken Windows boxes in the world now. We don't need another vector.
> newsgroups are different than a P2P seeding system. There wasn't really a peer so much that your ISP and some other odies (bodies?)
You didn't have to use your ISP's servers, just like you don't have to use their DNS. People routinely used other news servers, and nerds often ran their own. Of course using your ISP's local servers tends to be faster and more efficient than some server on a far-away network.
Until shortly before NNTP mostly died, most ISPs didn't want liability from choosing to carry specific news groups, so they didn't choose - they carried all of the official ones, and most of alt.
> Gee, sarcasm.
Half sarcasm, and moderated +5 Informative. I work with engineers born in the 1990s. It's not uncommon for such people to invent something, not knowing it was commonly used in the 1980s.
If you haven't noticed it in tech, you've surely noticed it in policy discussions - people argue, predicting what the effect of trying policy X might be, apparently unaware that policy X has already been tried many times in many places. I'd guess that close to 50% of political posts are people predicting the past.
If I can fly my drone up to 400 feet above my house, then I am making use of that airspace, which makes that MY airspace according to your, and the court's reasoning.
No, if you fly 400 feet above your house, you're in THE airspace. Not YOUR airspace.
"Business decision" meaning "we decided we don't want to go out of business". 600+ Gbps was enough to cause real stress on Akamai's network, so that their customers, who pay the bills, started to be affected. Increasing their costs while reducing their revenue due to losing customers is a recipe for Akamai to go bankrupt.
If Kreb's had been paying Akamai a retainer they would have some responsibility to provide services to him, if they were able to do so. They have no responsibility to put themselves out of business on a charity case.
That's why, for centuries, people have been intelligently deploying
There are also valid reasons why, for decades, people have been intelligently deploying... number six bird shot (out to forty meters or so).
Now you can add another.
> If everything was done via email, so would twitter.
If I had a trunk, I'd be an elephant*. I do not in fact have a trunk, and I'm not an elephant. Twitter is not an email listserv.
* I started to say "if Hill had a dick, she'd be Bill", but somehow that analogy just doesn't work the same when talking to you.
If you push the "extra ice" button on the soft drink vending machine, you won't get any ice. If you push the "no ice" button, you'll get ice, but no cup.
