Dealing With an Overly-Restrictive Intellectual Property Policy?
That's fine for paper contracts... but what do you do when your hiring paperwork is all electronic, including the signatures? This is increasingly common at some large corporations. Print, edit, submit?
FCC Maps the 3G Wasteland Of the Western US
Thanks, the one in TFA was terrible. I notice a dark patch right on the border of West Virginia and Virginia... it corresponds pretty well to the National Radio Quiet Zone. Shouldn't that remain an area that has minimal 3G/4G coverage?
Coders Develop Ways To Defeat SOPA Censorship

Good Disk Library Solutions?
I've used Handbrake in the past, and like their software. I tried using it recently on my new laptop, though, and was having trouble with playing the output. Probably I tweaked some setting wrong... whatever it was, VLC didn't like it. Instead of slogging through and trying to figure it out, I went looking for alternative software. I tried Freemake Video Converter, and it worked pretty well for my needs (i.e., giving me disc-free Wrath of Khan on-the-go).
