Two Years of Data On What Military Equipment the Pentagon Gave To Local Police

j35ter Re:Citation Please (264 comments)

I'm not being sarcastic, I'd just like some more info. It's hard for me to do research myself right now as I had cataract surgery and certain types of computer work can be intensely frustrating.

I'll try!
In 1922 all weapon purchases were banned and private weapons had to be confiscated

In a law passed 1928 all guns had to be registered and only permit holders were allowed to posess a weapon, no exemption!

NAZI RULE:
After disarming Jews, using an edict from the former German Weimar republic, the Nazi government passed a law in 1938 that allowed law abiding citizens the possession of weapons without the need for a permit.
All long barreled weapons and ammo were free for purchase and needed no registration (Austria still retains this law!) Only sidearm were regulated.
Members of gun clubs (Schützenvereine) were exempt from needing any permit - most gun clubs were (and today still are) considered right wing organizations.
Members of the NSDAP Nazi party were exempt of the need to apply for a weapons permit to possess and carry weapons.
Weapons were forbidden to Jews, Gypsies, convicted felons, homosexuals and members of subversive groups (socialists and communists). They were not allowed any kind of weapons or ammo - including knives and swords!

The general German population has been encouraged to arm themselves and at the same time, the opposition has been disarmed. Most political enemies of the Nazis have by then been convicted or set on a list disallowing them any kind of armament.

The Wikipedia entry in English is missing the interesting part. Try the German one with Google translate:

P.S. The guy modding me a troll deserves to burn in hell! :)

j35ter Re:No (264 comments)

Thats a bullshit argument! Even the nazis armed the German population, shortly after coming to power - contrary to what NRA idiots keep repeating! Armed citizens are the backbone of every totalitarian state because the most violent ones will be the first to shoot with the states blessing!

Satellite Images Show Russians Shelling Ukraine

j35ter Re:Great... (582 comments)

From Wikipedia:

In the international community, terrorism has no legally binding, criminal law definition.[1][2] Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those violent acts that are intended to create fear (terror); are perpetrated for a religious, political, or ideological goal; and deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (e.g., neutral military personnel or civilians).

The Ukrainian army are not civilians. But, while we are there, they are shelling cities full of civilians!

Still enough to fire a short range AA rocket. And equipped with those, the service ceiling is 7000m (MH17 was at 10000)

The pro-Yanukovich parliamentary members were not allowed to enter the Ukrainian parlament, and hence there was no majority for an impeachment.
This was a coup d' etat without any legal backing!
Also, in the meanwhile all pro-Russian parties and east Ukrainian backers in Kiev have been forbiden and arrested.

Satellite Images Show Russians Shelling Ukraine

j35ter Re:Great... (582 comments)

Look at it this way:
With the help of US and EU "counselors", a group of demonstrators, backed by Ukrainian neonazis ousted the democratically elected (pro-Russian) president Yanukovich.instead there is a government in place that forbade the use of Russian language (which is the predominant language in the east), and quite a few of the new cabinet members called for driving out all ethnic Russians out of the Ukraine, long before the Crimea incident
A large part of east Ukraine did not accept this. Now, Russia is baking these people, who want their elected president back...
As for the Crimean peninsula, that was give to the Ukraine by Russia, as a gift of friendship in 1957. Since the new Ukrainian government was trying to get NATO support, Russia annexed Crimea to prevent NATYO getting its paws on the Black Sea fleet, which is based there.
Considering that the Ukrainian constitution has been breached by the current governement,many in the east feel that there is no reason for them to keep living with the usurpers from the west.
Now, where exactly does your description of Russia "steamrolling"

Linux May Succeed Windows XP As OS of Choice For ATMs

Yes, and the vendor would have made sure that their platform is backwards compatible. With Industry, I don't limit myself just to IT!

This is not just about support, but also about availability and continuity. The fact that YOU did not have to pay a cent means nothing when compared to companies that licenced millions of copies of XP (>2.000.000 ATMs). and that soon will have to switch to another product for replacing old and/or broken machines. By industry standards, Microsoft is an unreliable player!

j35ter For the ones arguing that M$ gave 10 Years Notice (367 comments)

It still costs a shitload of money to change platforms for an established product - especially since Win7/8/... are quite different with regards to file structure, user management, security, etc. And by nowmost security holes have been closed in their version of XP. Well, now that they switch to something open, M$ won't be able to pull another XP on them :-)

j35ter Re:And the US could turn Russia into vapor (878 comments)

I think you underestimate the size of Russia. Even if you take out Moscow, St.Petersburg, Volgograd and other major cities, you would still have a functioning economy and militatry, try this with NY, DC Dallas and LA! The Russians learned teir lesson the hard way, starting with Napoleon and up to the Nazis!

Croatia issues a jailterm for unlicensed Windows

j35ter j35ter writes  |  more than 3 years ago

j35ter (895427) writes "Google Translation from the Article:

Municipal Court in Sisak issued a final conviction against MG from Moenice who is found guilty for, among other things, for the criminal offense referred to in Art. 230. Paragraph 1 Criminal law — unauthorized use of copyright works. The defendant was sentenced to imprisonment for a term of one year probation with a probation of three years. The court also ordered the seizure of computers used to commit a crime.

This happened to a guy who bought an allegedly stolen laptop wit a preinstalled pirated copy of windows. The article continues with a comment from the BSA:

This ruling is important because of the reasons for the verdict which the court stated: "It is a known fact, often present in the media, to private individuals that their computers — whether they be classical [sic] or laptop computer — may not install an operating system, respectively it is necessary to obtain approval of the person entitled to give permission to install the operating system so the same system could be used freely. The court deemed irrelevant whether the defendant personally installed the operating system, or whether it was done by someone at his request or if he used an operating system already installed. Defendant, if he bought a secondhand laptop, he should inform himself with regards to the installed operating system — even though the former owner did not inform him about it "

God help us all!"
