Hey_Jude_Jesus I'm still waiting for the defense lawyer that says (208 comments)

They just didn't have the parent sign the permission slip.

Asks schwit1, "How is this not a violation of the CFAA?"
No, fraud involved and not a "protected computer"

It sounds like the school was violating Facebook's Terms of Service, too.
Did the school employees ever agree to the Facebook TOS? No evidence of that.

Malaysian Flight Disappearance 'Deliberate'

Hey_Jude_Jesus This plane was stolen for money. IMHO (436 comments)

A 777-2000 is worth 230 Million dollars. The pilot(s) could sell it for $23 million dollars and live high off the hog. I think every airline better put in an automatic beacon using satellite and/or HF radio to know where every plane is at all times and the pilot(s) can't turn it off. There was another plane stolen in Angola by a mechanic ten years ago. It was never found. I'm sure that guy is living very well also. This is organized crime. IMHO. YMMV.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Convince an ISP To Bury Cable In Your Neighborhood?

Hey_Jude_Jesus It is all based on return on investment (324 comments)

The utilities have no incentive to bury cable for 22 houses. The only way you can get high speed internet in your area is to change the by-laws of the HOA to allow overhead wiring or pay for the installation with funds from the HOA. Sorry, but you're stuck with it and your only way out may be to sell your home to move some place else.
