Google Proposes To Warn People About Non-SSL Web Sites

jaymz666 Re:Stupid (391 comments)

What burden? The monetary and time cost of maintaining certificates for sites that just don't need them.

If you're worried about the government watching everything you do then get a VPN service that encrypts all traffic so they can't even see what servers you are connecting to.

Encrypting every single website is a huge burden on every single web operator.

Google Proposes To Warn People About Non-SSL Web Sites

jaymz666 Re:Stupid (391 comments)

The burden for this should be placed on each website operator, and not the end user who is browsing?

Google Proposes To Warn People About Non-SSL Web Sites

jaymz666 Re:Stupid (391 comments)

Why does everyone need more?
So many sites are read only with no exchange of data. No warning is needed for these.

jaymz666 Re:Stupid (391 comments)

It also increases costs and management overhead.
Does Fred Bloggs lyrics site need to be SSL? Probably not. But throwing a warning up is going to cause fear, uncertainty and doubt.

The Era of Saturday Morning Cartoons Is Dead

jaymz666 Re:not quite (320 comments)

Why? It's one of the highest rated shows on TV and the cast get paid a lot of money to be in it. Whether you like it is irrelevant.

You might want to check your sources there. At least two of those shows are on regular TV stations.

Ask Slashdot: What Old Technology Can't You Give Up?

jaymz666 Re:Simple Emacs vs. Vi? (635 comments)

Yep, good luck managing dozens or hundreds of servers that only have vi on it.
Granted, it does matter what your use case is, but most boxes do not have emacs on it so the need to know that is a heck of a lot smaller in many cases.

manage servers, troubleshoot network connectivity issues, etc. etc.

I know some of the aspects of managing web servers with SSL can be somewhat involved, but a basic understanding of generating a csr, requesting a cert and installing that cert should be understood at a theoretical level and the practical execution should be fairly straight forward to work through.

anyway!

jaymz666 Re:Simple (635 comments)

that war is over, and vi won

Now, as to interviewing people for IT, who will be working on *nix, asking "emacs or vi" used to be a teasing question, now you're lucky if they know what one or both are.

Can a court order you to delete a facebook account?

jaymz666 jaymz666 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

jaymz666 (34050) writes "Can a court really order you to delete a Facebook account?
When Asher initially appeared in court after the July 20 accident, the judge told her to delete her Facebook account, Kittinger said. Asher did not take it seriously, and was charged with contempt of court when the judge learned her Facebook page was still active.

Seems like a big over reach."
