Trillions of women in history have eagerly cared for babies who produced real excrement and it did not dissuade them. I'm pretty sure this campaign is a struggle against a seriously deep instinct, here.
The argument is that he had a presence in the US (server)
Ah, that's what I was missing, thanks.
The message has been sent -- you dip your toe in the torrent waters above a certain level and your life will be turned upside-down.
They are also close to sending the message that they intend to enforce their rules across the whole world. Which I guess accords with the rest of the US's imperialist message.
My operating system is Cygwin. I think it's hosted on whatever Windows is current or whatever Windows was current when my machine was purchased.
The attack allows an admin user to execute code in a high-integrity context without requiring the user to approve the administrative action via the UAC pop-up.
Thank goodness! I've been looking for a way around those annoying popups ever since they first arrived in Windows, and I know I'm not the only one.
I know scanning the data from a yellow pages breaks copyright law, but using an army of typists to copy the same data from the same source is perfectly fine.
To me, anybody who thinks this is a reasonable distinction to make in law shouldn't be making law for other people.
VLC is a client for playing video and audio files
There's a VLC client app for FireTV. The description page says it plays network streams, but if that's true, there's no visible way to use this functionality in the app.
Meanwhile, the VLC on my PCs can stream and be received by VLC on other PCs. I'd like to do similarly with the VLC app on the FireTV stick.
I recently ran into troubles trying to get reasonable quality of support from an anti-virus vendor
rotfl, I can't imagine getting much support at all for that.
How do other Slashdotters look to address companies that behave poorly and seek to only provide at best their minimum legal requirements?
I don't buy proprietary software.
Why would you want to perform streaming at the application level like that? SMB or NFS are so much more flexible, convenient, widely supported, and you can use any media player program you like. Seriously what's the appeal of app-level streaming?
I want multiple TVs in my house to be playing the same video or audio at the same time, at the same point. I'd like to be able to start a movie for the family in the living room, go into the kitchen 20 minutes later to make popcorn, and turn on the kitchen and see the same program the family is watching in the living room.
Can I use NFS or SMB to do that?
I recently installed the VLC app for FireTV stick and figured out how to stream from VLC on my PC. But I found that the VLC app couldn't work with a stream; it could only play files from network accessible storage like an SMB shared drive.
I'm not necessarily asking the developers here - can anyone tell me how to stream to my three FireTV sticks across the house? Do I need to replace the FireTV sticks with some other more capable device? Will the FireTV VLC app ever support streaming?
