ThatsMyNick Re:How about; (37 comments)

OpenSSH is not buggy and has good security already. You must be thinking of the OpenSSL.

Mozilla Dusts Off Old Servers, Lights Up Tor Relays

ThatsMyNick Re:Can we please get the fuck off TOR (80 comments)

I2P cant be used to access google and the general internet. Tor can be. So you should be using Tor, just keep in mind that anything unencrypted can and will usually contain malicious content. Even if not by the spooks, people change stuff for lolz, and monitor stuff for research and lolz. It doesnt mean tor is not good. It is just something you have deal with.

How One Small Company Blocked 15.1 Million Robocalls Last Year

ThatsMyNick Re:Implement locally? (145 comments)

1) The payphones here dont have SMS
2) Fair enough.
3) I am talking about someone close enough that it is an implied contract. Your children or your significant other or your parents or someone you care deeply about.

ThatsMyNick Re:Implement locally? (145 comments)

Voicemail is not the same as picking up a call. It does not have it covered, atleast for me.

How One Small Company Blocked 15.1 Million Robocalls Last Year

ThatsMyNick Re:Implement locally? (145 comments)

1) A close family member's cell phone battery dies, they try to call you from a pay phone or a friend's (or stranger's) cell phone.
2) A friend (old friend if you wish) has changed their number, and wants to reach you.
3) Someone who has you as their Emergency contact number had a mishap, and the emergency service wants to reach you..

China Cuts Off Some VPNs

ThatsMyNick Re:Weekend Project (218 comments)

Yup, getting the GeoIP 100% right is the corner stone of any good VPN software provider. /s

Note that it is not a japanese software without much thought into UX and it doesnt look polished (in western standards atleast). You cant get a better throughput using any other VPN tech though. The research (publications) and their throughput are their main motivators, the software/UX do take a bit of backseat.

China Cuts Off Some VPNs

ThatsMyNick Re:Weekend Project (218 comments)

Just use VPNGate. It designed specifically for Great Firewall of China, it is extremely easy to use, and works every time. No one needs an hour for this.

European Countries Seek Sweeping New Powers To Curb Terrorism

ThatsMyNick Re:Almost all normal people realise (219 comments)

Abnormal people realize it too. It just goes to show how governments are neither normal people or abnormal people. Whose line is it, again?

19,000 French Websites Hit By DDoS, Defaced In Wake of Terror Attacks

ThatsMyNick Re:Terror attacks (206 comments)

I am not convinced they only intended to terrorize journalists. If they did, it would indeed be journalism-targeted terrorism.

19,000 French Websites Hit By DDoS, Defaced In Wake of Terror Attacks

ThatsMyNick Re:Terror attacks (206 comments)

It is terrorism. It is intended to cause terror. The people of france are not terrified and it was not successful in terrorizing people, but it doesnt mean it is not a terrorist attack, it is just an unsuccessful one.

Four Facepalm Bugs In USPS Label-Printing Site

ThatsMyNick Re:It's the post office (182 comments)

You dont. They dont want you to print first class postage online. It is not very cost effective, and it is not like they have competition for first class. Calling something they used to do, and they dont want to do now, a bug is beyond crazy.

What Isn't There an App For?

ThatsMyNick Re:Here's an idea. (421 comments)

OP is obviously not asking for ideas you plan on implementing yourself. For certain things, you may have always wanted an app, but couldnt be bothered enough to write objective c or an android app for it, those are the ones the OP is asking for. If you are an app developer, you obviously shouldnt post apps you are planning to implement. Some people would rather take their ideas to their grave, than see someone else implement it, those people need not give their ideas either.

Indian Brick-and-Mortar Retailers Snub Android One Phones

ThatsMyNick Re: Understanding the Indian retailers. (53 comments)

Are you from the 90s. We have retail stores run by reliance, tata and huge chains. They have their own sister banks and investment firms. I doubt they have to borrow money at all, surely not at 25%, unless it is an accounting trick. Your whole post screams 90s mom and pop store. They have been replaced by chains even in larger towns

Group Tries To Open Source Seeds

ThatsMyNick Re: Most of the problem is Monsanto, the Great Sat (100 comments)

In my state organic certification doesnt require it to be GMO free. Plus organic certification only covers fresh produce, I eat a lot of stuff that is not fresh produce.

ThatsMyNick Re: Most of the problem is Monsanto, the Great Sat (100 comments)

Then give the consumers a choice to not buy GMO. Label products as GMO.

Plenty of products are already labeled as NOT GMO. So people already have a choice.

Not plenty enough. I am in the US west coast in a fairly large city, with a whole foods and a choice of stores. I honestly dont find enough products labelled GMO free.
