Comment I stayed for the forums (fora?) (Score 1) 86

One of the reasons I loved what.cd was the active, well moderated forums. I haven't torrented music in a long time, maybe years, but I did enjoy great discussions about music, technology and politics. I went to what.cd for music, before good streaming options existed. I stayed because of the relationships I built with people there. It was a great community that will be missed.

While this is a cool idea -- there are no women and no people of color featured on any US bills right now, and that doesn't accurately reflect the demographics of the country -- I can see it causing some confusion. On balance, it's probably a good decision, but this is a pretty major change.

Comment They need to be fined. Heavily. (Score 1) 32

Until customers aren't the only ones left on the hook in the case of breaches like this, companies like Hyatt aren't going to take security seriously. Sure, they might pony up for credit monitoring, but that does little to actually make customers whole if their identities are stolen or their bank accounts are emptied. If we were to start fining companies like this, say, $10,000 per card number / identity / sensitive detail stolen, I have a feeling these breaches would become far less common. Until we do this, we shouldn't expect Hyatt to care.

Your statements about Uber's contracting agreements are patently false. Drivers drive when they want to, they can turn the app on or off at any time. Many Uber drivers also drive for Lyft. Drivers can work for whoever they want without fear of retaliation. Drivers use their own phones, Uber doesn't require drivers to use a specific phone. It's clear that you have no idea what you're talking about. The next time you post something on the internet, it would be nice if you could take the time to make sure that it's at least mostly true.

Submission + - What asset tracking software do you recommend? 1

grahamsaa writes: I work for an organization that has a number of physical assets, as well as presence in multiple data centers. On the DC side, there are a number of specific things we need to track (one thing we want to be able to account for is how much power do we need for each rack). On the office side, our needs are more basic. We need to be able to tag and track laptops, workstations, monitors, etc.

I would like to use a single system for all of this, but have yet to find something that will work well on the office side and the data center side. Free / open source solutions are preferred, but we're prepared to spend money on a commercial solution if it meets our needs. What would you recommend?
