Re: GIST SAC
It appears you're having a thought. Would you like help with that?

You can't always blame MS for driver issues though. Too many OEMs think they're clever by using undocumented APIs for performance boosts. These undocumented APIs get shut down by Microsoft during a patch, but MS gets the blame instead of the dodgy OEM.
Case in point: Killer Networking. Each Windows update has a 50% chance of breaking the drivers. However, if you delete the Killer branded drivers, and install the generic Atheros drivers, Windows updates have about a 10% chance of breaking the driver.
> "The reaction looks to me like political panic rather than a sensible attitude to preservation of life."
Really? They make an app mandatory, the police use it for purposes that people did not agree to, and restricting the loophole used is a "panic move"?
I get that you were in a bad situation, but the outcome of that situation is not for you to demand everyone have mandatory tracking devices on their phones. If you want a feeling of security, take self defence lessons, lobby for more police resources, do something, but do not demand we live in a police state where they can demand "papers please", just because of a few dickwads.
So Apple has shown they do nothing about your security and privacy in respect to third party repairs. The most that will happen, if the 3rd party misbehaves often enough, is they will lose their Apple certification.
What does losing your Apple certification mean? You no longer have to send Macs older than 5 years to the landfill, as you are now allowed to repair them how you see fit.
Will an independent repair shop do better? Let's face it, they can't do any fucking worse.
Then those companies are acting under the very exact "anti-gay wedding cake" laws that the Republicans fought long and hard to introduce.
Now that those very same laws are being used against them, legally, the Republicans are crying foul and trying to introduce more legislation to "even the playing field". The simplest solution would be for all of the services affected, to stop servicing Florida.
> Stick to the known brands like Parker , Laird , Loctite. The good stuff is around 3 to 4 watt metre-kelvin and around 250$ per kg. So a 10 grams tube should be about 2.5$. Some of the fancy-pants stuff ( which is nothing but repackaged of the above. There's ain't that many companies that make this stuff) sells for 10 times that price !
Laird TPutty 508: 3.7 W/mk
Arctic MX-4 : 8.5 W/mk
Grizley Kryonaut: 12.5 W/mk
So yeah, we could go for the cheap stuff that you use, or we could go along and get stuff with better thermal transfer properties. So for something that most of us will only do once, it's worth spending that bit extra, especially those of us who live in countries that have 40+ degree celcius summers.
>> "I would be happy to pay more in tax (to a degree). What I would not be happy with is paying more than people in a similar position to myself."
> So your not happy to pay more tax. Otherwise you would be willing regardless of others. This noble societal cause. If your happy to go on then. If not thats also your choice, and its your choice.
Or maybe he would be perfectly happy paying more tax, if he knew it would go to worthy causes, like infrastructure, and social services, instead of going to the military so they can make you deaderer 0.5 seconds quicker, or to the police, so they can make you deaderer quicker, or into a billionaires fucking bank account.
> "Schiller also pointed to the expense of running WWDC, its annual developer jamboree, which he said costs $50m annually to run."
Taxing everyone who uses the app store 30% in order to subsidise an event that Apple intentionally loses money on? Surely then, the simple answer is have the WWDC tickets cost the appropriate amount in order to cover their costs. As they say, let the market decide if it's worth attending the event.
By publishing the details of the contributions (and thus dates), they have effectively given evidence of maleficence, thus any corporation who had downtime could essentially have a field day.
Hell, any dodgy corporation that didn't have downtime could simply fire off a threatening letter in the hopes of a quiet settlement.
> The alleged crime happened in the US, by a US organisation and no doubt US citizens. The Australian court has no jurisdiction in the US and no way to enforce its ruling except by blocking all EFF IPs and disappearing the EFF from Australia's version of the internet.
Now, if only the US was capable of applying the same logic to itself. United States v. Scheinberg ringing any bells?
I also used to work for a large copier/printer organisation, who had incentives like "whoever sells most of model X376 gets a Ducati". So they would sell X376's to companies that needed something smaller, or much mor powerful. The techs would then get the blame because the printers would perform to spec, and not to what the sales droid promised.
You mean like what right wing media has been doing all these years? Refusing to air facts that oppose their viewpoints, and having paid opinion pieces masquerading as "news".
Besides, January 6th showed everyone around the world how much the right wing favours aggressive cancel culture.
Except she never qualified for D.I. in the first place, and any possible right to D.I. she did have, expired when she fled the country.
American exceptionalism has to end.
Besides, would it not be a gross violation of his human rights to send him to Nurglite Central?
I'm just waiting for the conspiracy theory nuts to look at the patch name, then draw a very thin line to the naming conventions of flu strains, then draw another very thin line to Bill Gates, and dribble some bat-shit insane sproutings on a blog somewhere, to be picked up by QAnon.
With Faecesbook access to all of the image data it has (including pictures of you uploaded by others, even if you do not have a FB/Insta presence), one could argue that their public harvesting of data, especially your very identifiable face, is an infringement under the GDPR.
Given their history of abusing personal data, why should we give them the benefit of the doubt to start with?
