European Law Could Give Hackers Mimimum Two-Year Sentence

danny_lehman Re:Minimum Sentences (147 comments)

While I personally agree, from a crime-control perspective there is at least some value in this law as a general deterrent.

European Law Could Give Hackers Mimimum Two-Year Sentence

danny_lehman Re:Minimum Sentences (147 comments)

Id expect cases like that would be handled by extrajudicial measures either before or after charges - Police or Crown warnings/Extrajudicial sanctions/referral to programs.

Is the Canadian Arctic the Future of Astronomy?

danny_lehman Re:Firstly... (106 comments)

I think its in Nunavut. the article mentions PEARL being on the 80th parallel - which is way up in Ellesmere island's neck of the woods. agreed, communication probably by satellite/radio - theres only a couple cell towers in Nunavut at the moment - owned by Lynx Mobility

CRTC To Allow Usage-Based Billing

danny_lehman Re:60GB is nothing (282 comments)

For any Canadians reading today:

There are two petitions you should sign if you don't feel like this is right.

http://stopubb.ca/ - A petition to stop forced usage based billing.

and if you dont like the fact that the CRTC appears to bend to the will of the telcos without regard for the consumer, there is a petition to dissolve the CRTC here - http://dissolvethecrtc.ca/

Google Patent Proposes $2 Fee To Skip Commercials

danny_lehman Re:Greed (434 comments)

"the unsuspecting reader may unconsciously consume a variety of advertisements through the written word. Perhaps through the use of Alliteration spelling out a brand. Or through the use of landmark phrases to connect a user to a previously addressed food or drink. The power of the written word is underestimated and is thus one of the greatest untapped marketing mediums known to exist"

Hopefully by that time, Stephen Harper will no longer be prime minister, some other asshat will. And Canada will go back to its "peacekeeping" role. We're safe up here!

Security Concerns Paramount After Early Reviews of Diaspora Code

danny_lehman Re:After how long? (206 comments)

Perhaps they put some effort into the GUI to establish a brand image of sorts before the Open Source Community got their hands on it, wouldn't you? They got Paid because they had the initiative to start it, that's how it works.Also, the amount they got paid is kind of representative of the amount of demand out there for an alternative to Facebook - So

"Facebook's so annoying to use. Let's make one that works like we ALL want!"

FTFY...

They announced they would release a semi-working version's code, and that's exactly what they did. Their "mission statement" has a large emphasis on security so i sincerely doubt they will allow another major release with a "Patched" backend. The open source community Is large enough and kind enough to contribute where they may have fallen short. If you want to get paid for helping, you may want to go start your own.

Is DIY Algae Farming the Future?

danny_lehman Re:Looks like people are starting to see the benef (322 comments)

on a gram by gram basis Corella Algae is actually like SUPER nutritious. NASA i think experimented with using it for long space flights in the 60/70's. So your body can function longer running on a tomato-sized amount of algae than it could on an actual tomato.

Ancient alien conspirators actually believe that the Holy Grail was actually a Manna Machine that produced this kind of algae. Fun Fact..

kinda skimmed the article but i think hes getting at the idea that it's a good supplement and could have potential in enriching foods.
