Same here, but I'm NOT in a rural setting, so people passing the house can use it any time.
Another thing worth pointing out is if you use bittorrent for copyrighted material, turn off the upload option for those files. If you need to build up 'points' then share stuff like open source software only.
THat was you can't even be (rightly) accused of sharing the copyrighted stuff.
On top of that there are companies that use open source software, which they (grudgingly) publish.
But you can't recompile it yourself and run it on the device - oh no!
As the device bootloader is signed and the key is blown into fuses on the CPU, and the application must be signed too for the bootloader to run it.
So - you can build the app, but you can't sign it (with the manufacturer key) and therefore you can't run it.
None of which of course is in the spirit of the open source license the company is taking advantage of!
If I have to go to the toilet, I always applaud at the end of a movement!
Anyhow, once I went to see Kraftwerk, and their supporting band U2, at GMEX. Probably the Stop Sellafield gig.
When U2 came on, we sat down, and were berated by some Manc mank behind us who exhorted us to get up and dance along. He was most put out by our lack of enthusiasm for the Edge.
A while back I was contracting at TTPCom-Motorola, and this is the complete opposite of Allesandro's story.
Motorola had installed their corporate HR web-clickable database on the internal network, so you could click around and see who worked for whom.
So out of interest I clicked on my boss, then his boss, etc etc until I reached Ed Zander at the top.
It took 11 clicks - so that's 12 levels in the organisation, from the top, down to me, who did the actual work! It wasn't hard to see where this was heading.....
Just thinking, if some grunt at Bing was told to take it down for China, but thought, "Let's take it down for the whole world instead"? Just to see what would happen?
And now as you point out, it's shown that the rest of the world very much has NOT forgotten, and it's raised the profile of "Tank Man". Well done that grunt!
I had a recruiter reformat my CV and (unknown to me) he had changed 1/2 years Java experience to 12 years!
I went for the interview, all went well, and they hired me, as a well-paid Java developer. So then I had to teach myself Java on the job (coming from C and some C++ not too tricky).
I wondered for quite a while why I got the job in the first place, this being a Massachusetts company they were not allowed by law to distribute your CV around the company or refer to it ever again, so the mistake was never noticed, until much later when the company closed down.
The ironic part was that the recruiter was related to the CEO, and was creaming the fees, so I suppose they got payback for the nepotism! I did a good job there though....
