AT&T Threatens To Shut Off Service of Customer Who Won Throttling Case

errxn Re:Oops. (327 comments)

Yes, bits are bits from a technical perspective, and it shouldn't really matter what device in the chain is doing the requesting of said bits. Unfortunately, he put his signature to a contract that (I'm guessing) defines it otherwise. Right or wrong, technically correct or not, he will have agreed to it, and (again, guessing) that's going to carry a lot more legal weight than any technical argument.

AT&T Threatens To Shut Off Service of Customer Who Won Throttling Case

errxn Oops. (327 comments)

Spaccarelli has admitted that he has used his iPhone to provide Internet access for other devices, a practice known as tethering, which violates AT&T's contract terms. AT&T says that means it has the right to turn off his service.

Game, set, match. I have NO love for AT&T, but if this guy admits to violating their ToS, he doesn't have much of a leg to stand on.

The Wi-Fi Hacking Neighbor From Hell

errxn Re:Would MAC address filtering counter this proble (584 comments)

You catch someone doing something like this, and you put them under arrest yourself and then hope they resist, at which point you may use necessary force to subdue them. In California, anyway. Bring a witness with a camera.

Almost. You beat his ass first and then figure out how to blame it on him. In Texas, anyway. Bring a shotgun.

CIA Declassifies Pages From Their Cookbook

errxn CIA Cookbook? (119 comments)

Mix 5 drams copper acetol arsenate. 3 ounces acetone and add 1 pint amyl alcohol (fusil-oil). Heat in water bath — steam rising will dissolve the sealing material of its mucilage, wax or oil.... Do not inhale fumes.

This recipe is terrible, and tastes like shit. Conclusion: The CIA's cooking sucks.
