Submission + - Concealed Carry now a dead issue in 9th Circuit

jcomeau_ictx writes: The 9th Circuit's refusal to rehear Peruta en banc signifies once and for all, that this circuit does not consider concealed carry to be protected under the 2nd Amendment.

This means that Charles Nichols with his open carry lawsuit is the "last man standing" with a chance to restore the right to carry arms in the People's Republic of Californistan. Let's hope he's successful, because with Scalia gone the chance of a SCOTUS victory is questionable.

not clickbait. I was just playing around again with ipv6, as I do every year or two, and noticed tunnelbroker's countdown timer rapidly approaching zero. I thought it would be fun to celebrate it, like watching the silly countdowns on new year's eve. and in my experience, on Sunday there usually aren't any bosses around to squelch merrymaking.

Submission + - ARIN IPv4 addresses run out tomorrow

jcomeau_ictx writes: not really. but the countdown at should go to zero sometime tomorrow around noon, considering it's at 45,107 as I write this, it's counting down about one address every two seconds, and there are 86,400 seconds per day. just happened to notice it today. might be worth a little celebration at every NOC and IT enterprise tomorrow. cheers!
