There's no proof that it has anything to do with Wikileaks, but in a world of IoT devices with no thought toward security, anyone who cares to do so can mount DDOS with the power of a national entity.
What's the point of doing what Assange and Wikileaks have been doing without any moral position? He isn't helping his own case.
No, of course it is not legal to set a trap to intentionally hurt someone, even if you expect that the trap could only be activated by the person committing property theft or vandalism. Otherwise, you'd see shotguns built into burglar alarms.
Fire alarm stations sometimes shoot a blue dye which is difficult to remove or one which only shows under UV. Never stand in front of one when pulling the lever! But they are not supposed to hurt you.
And of course these booby traps generally are not as reliable as the so-called "inventor" thinks and tend to hurt the innocent.
Possibly true, but better graphics and more horsepower does not automatically makes for better games. It is all about FUN, first and foremost. A bad game with great graphics and more particle effects is still a bad game.
Two of my favorite games are still Fallout 1 and 2. They play great on a 100 MHz Pentium. Add a patch to support wide-screen monitors, and the games are still every bit as fun today as it was 18 years ago. The graphics still look pretty good, and the story-telling and gameplay have not aged at all.
GOG does not have any DRM, which is indeed best. However, as I said, some publishers demand DRM. If you have to have it, at least Steam makes it as unobtrusive as possible. Not perfect, but good enough to not be an annoyance.

Whereas sending people to Mars, that won't kill anyone. If anything it will result in a baby surplus.
I am actually less concerned about horsepower than I am with ownership. To me, current generation graphics are good enough. Would Mario be any more fun if you can see each and every pore and pimple on his face?
My last Nintendo console was a Wii, which suffered a mishap. I lost all of my purchased games because Nintendo tied downloadables to the console instead of the account. I honestly gave the Wii U a pass just because of this.
If I buy a Switch and some downloadable games for it, and it is destroyed, will I have to re-purchase all of those games, or can they be transferred to a new console easily? I really want the sane standards set by Steam. I am not a favor of DRM, but since some publishers insist on it, at least Steam does it in a manner that is least obtrusive.
I find it funny how you get focused on the specifics about being under oath.
Under Title 18, section 1001 if the United States Code, it is illegal to make a material misstatement to any member of the federal government. Still, we are getting off topic. My statement still stands: she belongs in jail.
Here is a quote from the director of the FBI:
Clinton was wrong when she said she never sent or received classified information over the server. "Our investigation found
... 110 [emails with then-classified information] that she either received or sent,
In fact, he said, three emails on Clinton's server had a paragraph "summariz[ing] something" and included a C in parentheses at the beginning of it, indicating the paragraph contained information "classified at the confidential level, which is the lowest level of classification."
Hillary handled 110 e-mails that had classified info, and three of them were clearly marked. However, as the Secretary of State, you would think that she would be clearly aware of what makes something classified, since she was the BOSS! What higher authority is there as to whether something should be classified other than the president? The buck has to stop somewhere! So, the BOSS handled three classified marked classified e-mails, and was clueless that the other 107 were classified, which is A BIG PART OF HER DAMN JOB!
If you or I has been that careless just 3 e-mails, WE WOULD BE IN JAIL. People HAVE been jailed for far less. Here is an example:
Navy engineer sentenced for mishandling classified material: Bryan Nishimura of Folsom, California, pled guilty to the unauthorized removal and retention of classified materials during stints in Afghanistan in 2007 and 2008. Hereâ(TM)s the money quote from the AP â" âoeAn FBI search of Nishimuraâ(TM)s home turned up classified materials, but did not reveal evidence he intended to distribute them.â The exact words used to clear Hillary of her misdeeds. Instead, Nishimura was sentenced to two years probation, fined $7,500, and had to surrender his security clearance. Meanwhile, Clinton will be able to serve as Commander-in-Chief.
So, yeah, Hillary got away clean with greater misdeeds than mere mortals get a felony for.
I should note that Hillary claimed to have NO IDEA what the "C" mark meant. Isn't that "classified 101"? That is like having a doctor have no idea about the difference between an artery and a vein. She has been PROVEN INCOMPETENT, and yet people like YOU still support her.
I happen to like you calling me names. Instead of actually disproving me, you just insult me. Like I said, you might be able to convince me that you are right if you use better insults. I am sure that you can look up better names to call me -- that will prove that I am wrong.
