Laptop Fires On Airplanes

DaveRobb Re:Liquids on planes (560 comments)

The problem I have is that it's not the people who own the planes making the rules. And it's not even necessarily the government of the country in which I'm flying who's originated the rules. There are now so many treaties and inter-country agreements about airline regulation that if the 900lb gorilla in the international civil aviation industry (the US) decides that liquids are bad, then everyone else has play by their rules.

MediaDefender Explains Itself

DaveRobb Re:Fry. (395 comments)

I only have one question: how can we retaliate?

Talk to people you know at ISPs (or if you work there yourself, push for the following) and have them blackhole MediaDefender. Denial of service attacks are (hopefully!) against the contract they have with their upstreams, and even if they're not, it's a fairly commonly accepted practice to blackhole known DoS sources.
