'Anonymized' Credit Card Data Not So Anonymous, MIT Study Shows

Lunix Nutcase Re:I guess i wasn't worried about this (65 comments)

What you are saying has no relationship to the article. The article is talking about the supposed "anonymized" data given to marketers about your purchases. It's about thinking you were hiding yourself from the business you were buying from.

'Anonymized' Credit Card Data Not So Anonymous, MIT Study Shows

Lunix Nutcase Re:Regular users only (65 comments)

Even if I were to spend $10000 on a credit card in a year that 3% doesn't even represent a full day's pay. I think I'll live somehow.

Canada Upholds Net Neutrality Rules In Wireless TV Case

Lunix Nutcase Re:LOL (98 comments)

I agree. The public statements made by those very companies saying that are hyperbolic. It was almost as if my post was lampooning the absurdity. Naaah, that couldn't possibly have been it.

Proposed Disk Array With 99.999% Availablity For 4 Years, Sans Maintenance

Lunix Nutcase Re:N(N+1)/2 spares (242 comments)

I would hope I'm misunderstanding it, because that seems like a lot of spares to purchase ahead of time.

Canada Upholds Net Neutrality Rules In Wireless TV Case

Lunix Nutcase Re:Wow (98 comments)

The more money you have here in the States, the larger your voice is with our government.

There's a country that has a government where this isn't the case?

No, they are constantly being read and written to from a NAS.

Sorry, the 3 TB drives are around 3 years old. The 2 TB have passed their 5 year warranties with no issues.

But doesn't Canada know that Net Neutrality is going to equal government censorship and all the telcos will immediately stop any infrastructure investments? Verizon, AT&T and Comcast said so and they would never lie about anything like that.

Proposed Disk Array With 99.999% Availablity For 4 Years, Sans Maintenance

Lunix Nutcase Re:Naive to say the least. (242 comments)

But I have yet to see a high-density disk last more than 8,000 hours, with the median being maybe half that.

Good for you. I have a number of 2 and 3 TB drives that are more than 5 years old. Anecdotes != evidence.

Lunix Nutcase Re:N(N+1)/2 spares (242 comments)

Basically as the disk size grows you are talking about N-squared spares. I think most businesses are going to be more than happy with just hot-swapping out failed disks as needed.

They also don't realize that 100,000 hours / 365 days is not the way you get years from hours.

Actually it does matter. If you believe 100,000 hours = 273 years you lack basic arithmetic skills.

They did 100000/365 which equals about 274. They seem to have confused hours with days.

Lunix Nutcase Re:Naive to say the least. (242 comments)

Umm, 273 years is nearly 2.4 million hours. So, no, no one with basic arithmetic skills believes that 100,000 hours is 273 years.

Justice Department: Default Encryption Has Created a 'Zone of Lawlessness'

Lunix Nutcase Re:poor cops have it so hard (418 comments)

Either you have something that you can minimally convince a Judge you've got probable cause or you don't DO it. PERIOD. You can't be a fucking criminal in the process of "enforcing" the law.

What's even worse is when they bypass the FISA court rubber stamp to do things warrantless. The FISA court even lets you backdate things by like a couple of days. If the government can't even convince the FISA court then you know they are doing something they definitely should not be doing (not as if the stuff FISA does approve is always above board).

Justice Department: Default Encryption Has Created a 'Zone of Lawlessness'

Lunix Nutcase Re:Dear DOJ (418 comments)

I don't disagree, but we should stop pretending that any politician in the history of this country has actually cared about protecting the rights of anyone but their wealthy, powerful base.

Lunix Nutcase Re:FUD (418 comments)

Oh and just to let you know, you hitting "not there" only hides it for yourself without sufficient voting from others. You didn't actually think your single "not there" hid those reports from everyone did you?

Lunix Nutcase Re:FUD (418 comments)

Using Waze to enable reckless driving is nowhere even near the same thing as protecting privacy with encryption.

Wow, it's almost like you completely missed the point of my post. *golf clap*

I never report police on Waze and flag them as "Not there" whenever possible.

Awww, what a good little bootlicker. Good thing all the other people will undo your action.
