Universities Agree To Email Monitoring For Copyright Agency

munky99999 Privacy law disagrees (165 comments)

Except in Canada you have to give them the right to monitor email or internet traffic as you do have reasonable expectation of privacy.

Simply have to refuse to sign any paperwork which gives them the right to monitor. If they do monitor and try to do anything then they are basically providing evidence that makes your lawsuit very easy.

Tackling Open Source's Gender Issues

munky99999 Re:Is there a gender check in GIT? (589 comments)

I was pointing out that there's no gender check. They can feel free to submit under their names and nobody is going to decline patches just because you have a girl's name.

Tackling Open Source's Gender Issues

munky99999 Is there a gender check in GIT? (589 comments)

Is there a gender check in GIT? Is there a gender check in subversion? If I submit code under nothing more than a pseudonym then I have contributed to open source and taken part without a care in the world as to what my gender is. If I then get on freenode to talk to the developers; there's still no gender test. There's no gender test on reading the 'learn programing language X in 30 days'.

So there's absolutely nothing stopping women from joining open source; so why then is there 'issues' and 'problems' doesnt sound like a problem to me. Simple fact is that women arent in open source because the $ is better elsewhere. Engineering and drafting scholarships worth $25,000 for women; large corporations with 'hiring quotas' that give women any wage they ask for regardless of skill in the fields they are considered lacking. Sexism in other fields draw technical women away from open source and getting open source into the same sexist $ offering to draw women is just absurd.

Greenpeace Breaks Into French Nuclear Plant

munky99999 If brown people... (561 comments)

If brown people did it they'd be labelled terrorists and any associated organization would be a terrorist organization. Frankly I would agree with them as well. Yet I bet these fellas wont be in trouble.

Does Telecommuting Make You Invisible?

munky99999 Nobody notices what I do until I dont do it. (275 comments)

People in the office aren't be acknowledged for what they are doing neither; at best the person being interrupted by their boss asking if they are working, gets to point out what they are doing.

So You Want To Be a Zero Day Exploit Millionaire?

munky99999 Secunia doesnt pay anything. (36 comments)

Secunia's program doesn't offer any $ so why the fuck give them anything. ZDI offers basically nothing.

There are a few places which offer decent cash and there are a few ebay-ish places which let you sell but they aren't that popular.

Amazon says they want to offer everything... they should allow it and all we need to do is put them up there.

Ron Paul Wants To End the Federal Student Loan Program

munky99999 supply vs demand (1797 comments)

In the grand supply vs demand world. If they got rid of the student loan system there would be ridiculously fewer people getting an education and therefore less demand. So theoretically they would lower the cost of post-secondary by lots. Though at the same time that also means far fewer professors and far less research from universities. Far few educated people... in a growing world economy which has larger and larger demand for skilled workers.

What a smart idea for the usa to do. I support ron paul but sadly i dont live in the usa and hope we socialize post-secondary.

SAIC Loses Data of 4.9 Million Patients

munky99999 The past week (182 comments)

Long story short my current job blows very badly. I have been looking at job postings for computer security positions. In the last week I have been seeing lots of SAIC postings.

Please excuse short url below.

Looks like they are hiring security people at a coincidental time. I wonder who got fired or if there was anyone to even get fired.

Healthcare Law Appealed To Supreme Court

munky99999 Re:What other products (1019 comments)

There are many examples of mandatory 'products' but how about the USA joins the rest of the 1st world countries and not have health care be a for-profit product but rather a non-profit service?

Demystifying UEFI, the Overdue BIOS Replacement

munky99999 Re:UEFI (379 comments)

The majority of mobo vendors have a line of mobos with uefi. It proves that they can do it and have the experience but the fact its so closed the neckbeards wont get behind it and they dont sell.

Demystifying UEFI, the Overdue BIOS Replacement

munky99999 UEFI (379 comments)

The only reason UEFI is overdue is not because they are slow in development. It's simply the fact that UEFI isn't an open standard. If UEFI was made an open standard every new computer in a month would all have UEFI.

As far as I understand WPA2 actually has a mechanism that disallows reading what is sent between each user and you need to rely on broadcasts and such to manage.
