Comment Re:Asinine. (Score 2) 421

While citizens do not have access to the same class of weaponry as the state, we out number them.

There are 300,000,000 gun in private hands.
Compared to the whole of the US military and civilian law enforcement which comes to just under 3,000,000.

If 3% of the adult population stands up and says we will not give up our guns then we outnumber the government almost 3 to 1.

Thought I think they would have an issue collecting the guns from the 25,000,000 people in Texas.

Before someone says "They will just bring in the UN troops" Well, that will add about 150,000 people. Not really enough to make a dent.

Strawberry? I don't even want to know . . .

Years ago. even pre-google iirc, I was putting graphs into an article with LaTeX.

It wasn't wrapping the text around the way I was used to in Word 5.1, so I went looking (probably with ALtaVista) for an extension.

I searched for "LaTeX wrap figure"

Oh, dear . . .

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing: that's rich coming from Cloudflare - the company that single-handedly decides you can't access vast swathes of the internet if you're connecting from a TOR exit node.

That company does more than all the others put together to make my internet browsing experience completely miserable...

Ditto. I'm sitting here not too far from Google headquarters and I'm dying to get their service. I don't know why they've been targeted "non-technie" communities, but if they'd start rolling out their service to areas with a higher concentration of tech workers, they'd see the numbers they were hoping for.

Submission + - Malibu Media stay lifted, motion to quash denied

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes: In the federal court for the Eastern District of New York, where all Malibu Media cases have been stayed for the past year, the Court has lifted the stay and denied the motion to quash in the lead case, thus permitting all 84 cases to move forward. In his 28-page decision (PDF), Magistrate Judge Steven I. Locke accepted the representations of Malibu's expert, one Michael Patzer from a company called Excipio, that in detecting BitTorrent infringement he relies on "direct detection" rather than "indirect detection", and that it is "not possible" for there to be misidentification.

He keeps differentiating, flying off on a tangent.
