I Name My Servers After:

iPhr0stByt3 Re:I name them after religious characters (722 comments)

You may not believe any of their claims and nobody would believe all of them (mutually exclusive), but everyone believes these people (at least) were real, non-fictional people :-) .

Redistricting 2.0: Cloud Lets Voters Take Part

iPhr0stByt3 Re:The cloud doesn't let voters do anything.. (83 comments)

Well, I'm just glad you would never allow a predisposition to a particular ideal or philosophy skew your perception of logic or even allow your bias to fabricate logical, but false conclusions of your own.

Teachers Back Away From Evolution In Class

iPhr0stByt3 I would say yes (947 comments)

A majority of these articles are posted on US-based websites and frequently (though not always) from a US perspective.

Teachers Back Away From Evolution In Class

It's blaming religion, not praising it. I agree, it should be more neutral, but you seem to have it wrong.

Google Releases Software To Iran

iPhr0stByt3 Re:Home of the Free (286 comments)

I disagree. The US DOES have a higher moral footing, as does most of the rest of the world. It's not that we're great, but rather that Iran has some serious issues. What part of this don't you understand.

British MP Calls For Pornography 'Opt-In'

iPhr0stByt3 Re:I for one... (335 comments)

Of course it would put much less stress on everyone if the porn sites simply agreed to putting that content into the .XXX or .SEX TLD. But no, that would be too easy and the porn industry WANTS people to stumble over their sites.

British MP Calls For Pornography 'Opt-In'

iPhr0stByt3 I for one... (335 comments)

...think that porn is too easy to "stumble" upon. Most of the time you'd have to be looking for it. But yes, it CAN be accidental, regardless of any filters or proxies I might use. Short of blocking all pictures or something retarded like that.
Here's what I'm NOT saying:
- We need everyone to verify their age via CC or SS to browse the web
- Parents have no responsibility in this matter
- We can make it impossible for kids to access this

I'm fully aware that age verification for online access would be a nightmare, that I need to raise my own child and my kids could find it if they really wanted too regardless of my actions. But this accidental sh*t that comes up could be prevented if websites are also given at least a SMALL part of the responsibility in keeping their stuff behind some kind of age verification - even a simple "are you 18" would be sufficient and many websites don't have this. Also, much of the accidental crap comes from image searches (even with the safe filter enabled) which could easily be prevented if the website owners took care of their content.

Thieves Use Vacuum To Siphon Cash From Safes

iPhr0stByt3 Sounds familiar (173 comments)

I had read somewhere before (maybe in one of Mitnik's books? ) that the first EVER ATM hack was something similar. When they set up a security camera to find out where the money went it revealed that a cleaning service just drove up the machine and sucked out the money. Remember, this was back in the day - like the FIRST ATM in UK or USA or something like that.

Just Get a Mac. And if you don't we'll keep "accidentally" leaving backdoors in our software for windows.

Should Developers Have Access To Production?

iPhr0stByt3 Re:Backdoors (402 comments)

That may very well be a true for a small shop, but in a small shop you may not actually have dedicated systems for a complete Dev cycle anyway (Dev, Q/A, Prod) and if you do, it may be acceptable to let the devs have access to production systems (they may even be the only people capable of maintaining them anyway). In a large environment review processes should prohibit backdoors - if not, then you need to fix the review process. But somewhere in-between are those businesses where it can be difficult to balance system integrity and security with development access.

Wikileaks Now Hosted By the Swedish Pirate Party

iPhr0stByt3 Political entity required to comply? (438 comments)

As a political entity, wouldn't the pirate party have some sort of international obligation to comply when other federal governments ask them to remove information?

Ask Slashdot: Building a Powerhouse Netbook

iPhr0stByt3 iPhr0stByt3 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

iPhr0stByt3 (1278060) writes "So my dad wants a netbook and asked me what I think he should get. I'm looking for near maximum specs, but want to benefit from the cheap Windows starter edition license. We could probably discuss all day what is better: HDD or SDD? WinXP or Win7? (Linux is out of question for him.) What I'd like to get him: Win7 starter, (min 32GB) SSD, (preferred) Intel Atom 275 (or 270) and 2GB RAM. The 2BG RAM is of course not allowed for the starter license, but as far as I know I'm free to install my own 2GB RAM. Therefore, an OCZ or Zotac barebones machine might be a good idea, but how do I get Win7 starter OEM in that case? Also I have not found a barebones with Atom 27x If I look for complete netbooks I cannot find any with all the above specs. Can anyone enlighten me? Perhaps the specs I want will be available a month or two down the road? Maybe I should look for a machine with a slower CPU?"
