Dealing With an Overly-Restrictive Intellectual Property Policy?

kilo_foxtrot84 Re:Strike it out when you sign it. (467 comments)

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

kilo_foxtrot84 National Radio Quiet Zone (173 comments)

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

kilo_foxtrot84 Firefox Plugin (449 comments)

If SOPA passes, this might actually make me switch back to Firefox from Chrome. Of course, I'd have to download the plugin before it got stomped by a SOPA claim.

Good Disk Library Solutions?

kilo_foxtrot84 Re:let's see DRM, high cost of HDD's get in the wa (371 comments)

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).

NY Bill Would Require Online State Records

kilo_foxtrot84 Re:It's a Bad Idea (76 comments)

But today, with computers and intarwebs and such things, these records are free and pretty broadly available. So someone who, say, wants to letter bomb the residents and owners of every apartment in a tri-county area, can do it with virtually no effort or expense.

Not sure this is a very good argument. What's to stop someone from doing the same thing using a local phone book?

Ask Slashdot: What Do We Do If SOPA Passes?

kilo_foxtrot84 kilo_foxtrot84 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

kilo_foxtrot84 (1016017) writes "The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) has been causing many Americans no small degree of agita these past few weeks, as the fate of the free internet seems to hang in the balance. While many are fighting the good fight by contacting their congressional representatives (either directly, or with help from sites like http://americancensorship.org/), what happens if the unthinkable comes to pass, and SOPA becomes the law of the land?"
