Cap’n Slappy: I know when ye’re tryin’ to get to sleep, ye’re supposed to count sheep – but I switched to Ninjas because sheep were by far more intelligent and interesting.
Indeed, news of the arrest of Tornkit’s alleged author has caused some hand-wringing among security researchers. They fear police may have overreacted by hauling in a hacker on charges of merely writing a potentially malicious program.
This year’s theme, Twenty Twelve, is the first to embrace responsive design, adapting its layout to fit any screen. The WordPress admin pages are already responsive, and the last few default WordPress themes have accommodated small screens, even using some responsive design tools like CSS
@media, but this is the first default theme to fully embrace responsive design and fluidly adapt to any screen.
“No, sir. That’s why it’s called a ‘test’ drive. If you had bought the car, it would just be called a ‘drive.'”
Patrick McCabe’s latest creation is a delightfully ironic combination of high-tech and low-tech that is sure to please. And just what exactly is this inventive tour de force? Okay, if you’ve read the title of the post, you already know the answer, so we’ll just get to the goods:
Reader Eric Scott said, “First it was ‘early summer,’ then it was ‘August or September.’ Those came and went and it became ‘on sale right after Comdex,’ which was followed by ‘available for Christmas.’ And now Christmas is just a few days away, with no product in sight…. Perhaps all those dates were really supposed to be in 2003.”
Carlson plans to post details, including a draft don’t-ban-crypto-letter, to a newly created Working Group on Privacy and Civil Rights website.
The event has raised $17,000 so far. It has grown from about 50 photos in 2002 to more than 500 last year. Robyn also now has 17 volunteers to help coordinate photos, press and volunteers – something she appreciates greatly now that she has two small children, both born since the first Boobie-Thon.
Facebook has been in contact with Limited Run and says it is trying to get to the bottom of what went wrong. But thus far, it says it has seen no actual evidence of a bot swarm. “We’re trying to work with Limited Run to investigate these claims,” a spokesperson says, “but we haven’t received any data yet to support these claims.”
The beauty of the law, from legal standpoint, is that it was drafted and redrafted to take into consideration the sort of broad landscape of political concern about this. It was supported by major champions of
First Amendment protected activities, like the chairman of Subcommittee on Crime in the House, Bobby Scott, and a number of more conservative members on the other side of the aisle. It was signed off by the ACLU.
Only those who didn’t want to see the bill passed said it would infringe on First Amendment freedoms.
Comcast denies this. A company spokeswoman says that when Comcast introduced the retransmission fee in 2014, it did not apply to customers with a locked-in promotional rate. She also says Comcast discloses the fact that a bill may include taxes and fees in addition to advertised rates. Indeed, you can find these disclaimers on the Comcast website—after clicking a link titled “Pricing & Other Info,” which displays a lengthy block of text that details the caveats attached to the advertised. In other words, you must read the fine print.
And you know that when Reed Hastings says something, he will never ever change his mind and do the opposite, no matter how much circumstances change.
Regardless of whether the government calls it “hacking” or a mere warrantless “search,” however, prosecutors’ arguments against Ulbricht’s Fourth Amendment protections aren’t particularly convincing, says Jennifer Granick, director of civil liberties at Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society. In the case of the prosecution’s argument that Ulbricht would need to declare his ownership of the Silk Road server to claim any right to the privacy of its data, she points out that Ulbricht could also claim a right to privacy as a mere user of the site.
The Seattle, Washington-based retailer, which claims 37 million active accounts, said on its website that it is “trying to take the friction out of grassroots contributions to presidential candidates.”
WN: Do you have trouble convincing people that it’s time to take action now, although we currently don’t know of any asteroids that pose a serious threat?
Although I don’t know much of the technicalities of the case beyond what I’ve gleaned from the various articles I’ve read this week, one thing does seem clear: however severe the crime Swartz committed, it certainly shouldn’t have been one punishable by death. But apparently he felt persecuted to the point of taking his own life, partly driven by depression and partly to avoid the potential of spending up to 35 years in prison.
The flash-based game is produced by American Public Media, and tries to give players a better understanding of how the federal budget works and what is required to keep it running smoothly.
Hiramatsu is not sure how far the photos have traveled, but the spread continues. He was thrilled when the American Museum of Natural History recently contacted him about using his photos to help promote an upcoming exhibition called “Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence.”
10:06 p.m. – Democratic gathering – One word: Gloom. Ever since the recall of Florida, a palpable sense of dread has fallen over the crowd. Nader appears on the giant screens, interviewed by CNN and is greeted by the first boos since Mary Matalin’s mug showed up a short time ago.
Hard drugs: Brand-name drug prices jumped nearly 4 percent during the first three months of the year, raising costs for taxpayers subsidizing the Medicare drug program and for some of those participating in it, AARP said Tuesday.
“We didn’t once think ‘I wish we could shut if off,'” Dash said in an interview. “Companies pay tens of thousands of dollars a year to get passionate customer feedback. In our case, it was instant.”
As she heard the details, Gomez felt what she calls “that booting-up buzz.” Staying on the run from the FBI is no easy feat. Neither is evading three professional investigators dispatched by some of the country’s biggest debt recovery agencies. Mullen had clearly figured out something—some technique for covering his tracks or otherwise keeping ahead of his pursuers—that put him well above the average con. Gomez wanted the case.

Overall earnings of S&P 500 companies are expected to rise 2.2 percent, snapping a four-quarter streak of profit declines, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
In what has to be the lamest copyright-related takedown in the history of YouTube, someone or something has removed those excellent parody videos that paired video footage of famous guitarists “shredding” with expertly-done amateurish guitar buffoonery.
To explain how the reward system would work for someone interacting with the MMO from the outside, Powell offered another example the group has planned for the title.
Neighbors in O’Fallon, Missouri, the small town where the Drews and Meiers lived four houses away from each other, turned on Drew when her supposed complicity in the hoax emerged. They called her a murderer, Lori Drew’s father testified Monday.
This event offers up several firsts. On the product side, it marks the first time Apple will unveil three iPhones at its fall showcase. One will be a high-end model with new display and sensors that will be called the iPhone X, according to reports on a recent Apple software leak. The other two will be upgrades to last year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Apple declined to comment for this article.
Trump’s networking with some CEOs today to discuss business in America. The top item on the agenda? Taxes! Businesses have been looking forward to tax reform and even holding back investments, waiting to see how it all plays out. Also on the docket, infrastructure and Trump’s strategy.
This time around, the Brazilian Supreme Court overturned the website block the same day it was issued, on the grounds that it violated constitutionally protected free expression, as well as Brazil’s net neutrality law, Marco Civil, which was passed in 2014.
“With TouchID, you use your fingerprint to log into a local device. With FIDO2, you can actually log into your desktop by using your fingerprint on your phone,” Li says. In other words, it would replicate the proprietary process that Apple has now for authenticating between devices, but on non-Apple products. “FIDO2 is essentially standardizing the way to do it, end-to-end,” Li says. (Apple is the one major browser maker that hasn’t voiced support for WebAuthn.)
The nation’s first predictive parking program has debuted in downtown Pittsburgh, directing drivers based on real-time data and historical models.
“A movie like this will never win awards (at a festival),” he said. “It’s not groundbreaking in any obvious way aesthetically. It’s designed to be entertaining.
Something that John Baichtal suggested as an add-on to the Geekdad Gift Guide was stocking stuffers.
But the people who live in Marin and have seen the disease in action say more studies are necessary. They cite possible contaminants from radioactive waste canisters off the Farallon Islands and the defunct Hamilton Air Force base in Novato, as well as a local rock quarry. No study proves that these can be ruled out as the source of breast cancer in Marin, they say.
Early founders of the sharing economy hoped Peers would address this, but they underestimated the degree to which public sentiment would begin to turn on the sharing economy companies as they became more mainstream. Uber has few lovers these days (though it has no fewer riders).
