Clarificiation on the IP Address Security in Dropbox Case

Noah Haders Re:Technically correct?? (112 comments)

what are you talking about? just redact the records. Records are often redacted to protect sensitive information for FOIA requests.

Clarificiation on the IP Address Security in Dropbox Case

Noah Haders Re:Technically correct?? (112 comments)

I think the issue here is not with security but with privacy. for many people the ip address is PII (personally identifiable information). My hope ip is static and only used by me. so any records showing my ip address are equivalent to showing my home address. If we're going to protect people's PII we should be protecting IP addresses too.

Ask Slashdot: Why Is the Power Grid So Crummy In So Many Places?

the second dropped berries all over our lawn rendering our back yard unusable and attracting flies

these two statements contradict. by definition if your yard attracts flies it has a very significant and specific use.

ISS's 3-D Printer Creates Its First Object In Space

Noah Haders Re:Next step - Semiconductors (65 comments)

But the same troll was likely used about GPS. Fuck cost effective. Banks create 10 times more money than governments. Fund space at zero cost through the Fed because it is a good idea, in the General Welfare. Why would creating money for space exploration cause inflation?

Btw Europe texted, they want their economic paradigms back

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

Noah Haders Re:Flip Argument (1063 comments)

I'm just asking you to separate facts from your own conjecture. Fact: he was shot in the top of the head. Conjecture: what MB was doing that caused him to lower his head. I'll say again, if somebody shot me I'd crumple to the ground pretty quickly and my head could end up facing the attacker.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

Noah Haders Re:Flip Argument (1063 comments)

That (last) shot could only be fired while approaching the officer.

why would you believe this to be true? This looks like an unfounded assumption on your part. If I were shot in the belly, my first reaction would probably be to double over in pain, thus my head would be bowed before the officer.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

Noah Haders Re:Flip Argument (1063 comments)

the autopsy showed that he was charging the officer? I thought the autopsy just showed that he was shot in the top of the head, and you're speculating that it's because he was charting the officer. Or maybe it's a magical autopsy, I don't know.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

Noah Haders Re:Pathetic (1063 comments)

of course there wasnt because the DA failed to articulate a specific narrative and presented all sorts of conflicting evidence. as the GP said, he threw the case.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

Noah Haders Re:Wrong (1063 comments)

for all we know, every single member of the grand jury believed officer wilson should be charged with a crime, but they couldn't agree on which crime. Normally the DA presents the grand jury with a yes/no decision. "I believe that this person is guilty of X, and here's why." In this case the DA gave the grand jury 6 choices from murder to oopsie-death, and failed to articulate any specific narrative for what could have happened. He said "here's all the evidence, and here's an array of charges. Tell me what you want me to do". It's proof that the DA never wanted an indictment and so he abused the grand jury process.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

Noah Haders Re:Flip Argument (1063 comments)

Only problem was: The fatal shot was fired when he was running / charging in the direction of the officer. (If you bothered to listen to the forensic evidence...

why would you believe that this is true? the DA purposely conducted a full trial in front of the grand jury so that all the testimony would be secret and the jury could not discuss their deliberations. We only have the statements of the DA's office about what may or may not have been said.

In a Self-Driving Future, We May Not Even Want To Own Cars

Noah Haders Re:But Car2Go has (453 comments)

whats cool about car2go is you only pay for driving time. in zipcar you pay for the total rental time. so if you get a zipcar to go to walmart, you have to pay for all the time that it sits out in the lot.

Eizo Debuts Monitor With 1:1 Aspect Ratio

Noah Haders Re:ObFry (329 comments)

Shut up and take my money!

I do my DTP on a Pentium IV with a 4:3 screen because the simple fact is it's far more comfortable looking at a document on a 4:3 screen than it is a 16:9 or a 16:10.

you don't have to keep every window maximized to the full width of the screen... you can have multiple windows, each with a 4:3 ratio. Just a suggestion. #NOOB

Let's talk about #GamerGate

Noah Haders Noah Haders writes  |  about two weeks ago

Noah Haders (3621429) writes "It's been a while since #GG has been foaming at the mouth, and I feel like we've never had a good nerdrage post about it. So let's get it out of our systems! I'll ask the question: What do you think about #GamerGate? What lessons should a budding games designer take from this?"

Google buying satellite constellation network; will watch your every movement

Noah Haders Noah Haders writes  |  about 5 months ago

Noah Haders (3621429) writes "The Wall Street Journal profiles one of Google's recent acquisitions which has implications on mapping, competitive intelligence and even privacy. Skybox Imaging is an intelligence company that by the year 2018 will be able to take satellite imaging to the next level:
By the time its entire fleet of 24 satellites has launched in 2018, Skybox will be imaging the entire Earth at a resolution sufficient to capture, for example, real-time video of cars driving down the highway. And it will be doing it three times a day.
The ability to take such frequent imaging will certainly aid Google's Maps product, but it also opens up a market for competitive intelligence. Skybox says they are already looking at Foxconn every week and are able to pinpoint the next iPhone release based on the density of trucks outside their manufacturing facilities.

Google plans on initially using the technology to improve their Maps product, potentially providing more up-to-date satellite images, but Skybox executives have long term plans for offering their data to outside developers for a fee."
