As Prison Population Sinks, Jails Are a Steal

ub3r n3u7r4l1st Re:Prison population (407 comments)

Why is multiculturalism foisted on EVERY White country and ONLY on White countries. Why aren't ANY White countries permitted to maintain their own race and culture? This is not done to any non-White country.
Assimilation and integration are foisted ONLY on White countries.
They call this anti-racist, but the end result is the elimination of only one race, the White race.
Multiculturalism is a codeword for White genocide.
Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

wait until all the H1Bs take your jobs. Not that many people in management can see why desirable skills and deep experience trumps number of brains. Otherwise, rampant age discrimination in STEM field would not exist.

Complain About Comcast, Get Fired From Your Job

ub3r n3u7r4l1st Re:Tapes or it didn't happen (742 comments)

"My guess is Comcast's lawyers will try to make the Comcast employee who called the customer's employer out to be a "rogue" and try to pass legal responsibility on to him."

IANAL, but Comcast could be liable under the "respondeat superior" doctrine in common law. Such form of secondary liability is called "Vicarious liability". A subset of them is the well known Nuremberg defense.

Complain About Comcast, Get Fired From Your Job

ub3r n3u7r4l1st Re:The First Amendment applies to the government (742 comments)

His right of not to participate is also violated.

He is trying to cancel his service, and in return he get unwanted equipment and billed $1800 for it. He returned the equipment, and then he got fired from his employer. Simple as that.

1. You would also need to pass the bar exam (not just the degree) to practice law, and claim yourself to be a lawyer.

2. Trying to get erroneous bill fixed is not asking for preferential treatment, unless the practice of slapping random charges on random customers.

You won't, at least voluntarily. Because secrecy and ignorance is a defense.

Is It Time To Throw Out the College Application System?

ub3r n3u7r4l1st Re:Here's another perspective (389 comments)

Yup, and with that most ESL students (especially those from east Asia) are doomed out of high school because they are only qualified to go to a community college, even if they get 800 on the quant SAT, 36 on ACT Math, getting A's in all the math and science courses, etc. No "real" college will accept them because they get C's and D's in English, history, music, and most liberal arts courses.

Complain about Comcast, get fired from your job

ub3r n3u7r4l1st ub3r n3u7r4l1st writes  |  about two weeks ago

ub3r n3u7r4l1st (1388939) writes "When you complain to your cable company, you certainly don’t expect that the cable company will then contact your employer and discuss your complaint. But that’s exactly what happened to one former Comcast customer who says he was fired after the cable company called a partner at his accounting firm.

Be careful next time when you exercise your first amendment rights."

Apple removed last iOS FOSS app in the App store

ub3r n3u7r4l1st ub3r n3u7r4l1st writes  |  about 8 months ago

ub3r n3u7r4l1st (1388939) writes "On Wednesday February 5th, Apple attempted to strike a devastating blow to the FOSS ecosystem on iOS by removing “Blockchain”, the last remaining payment app, from the App Store. Offering no explanation and no opportunity to address any issues, without any apparent change in circumstances other than the growing popularity of the independent and competitive payment system, Apple has eradicated their payment competition on iOS and left the space entirely to competing mobile OSs like Google’s Android."

Payment system update glitch caused massive shopping spree

ub3r n3u7r4l1st ub3r n3u7r4l1st writes  |  1 year,6 days

ub3r n3u7r4l1st (1388939) writes "The Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) system allows recipients of government food stamps to purchase goods using a digital card with a set spending limit, but for a few hours over the weekend, that limit disappeared for many users visiting Walmart stores in Louisiana. Xerox, which hosts some of the infrastructure used by the EBT card system, claims that a power outage during a routine maintenance test caused the temporary glitch. The chaos that followed ultimately required intervention from local police, and left behind numerous carts filled to overflowing, apparently abandoned when the glitch-spurred shopping frenzy ended. A local police chief says that "It was worse than any black Friday" that he's ever seen."

The rest of those registering an opinion are OK with the practice, although some approve only with caveats.

Google Hackers Had Ability to Alter Source Code

ub3r n3u7r4l1st ub3r n3u7r4l1st writes  |  more than 4 years ago

ub3r n3u7r4l1st (1388939) writes "Hackers who breached Google and other companies in January targeted source-code management systems, security firm McAfee asserted Wednesday. They manipulated a little-known trove of security flaws that would allow easy unauthorized access to the intellectual property the system is meant to protect.

The software-management systems, widely used at businesses unaware that the holes exist, were exploited by the Aurora hackers in a way that would have enabled them to siphon source code, as well as modify it to make customers of the software vulnerable to attack. It’s akin to making yourself a set of keys in advance for locks that are going to be sold far and wide."

Tour de France champion accused of hacking

ub3r n3u7r4l1st ub3r n3u7r4l1st writes  |  more than 4 years ago

ub3r n3u7r4l1st (1388939) writes "A French judge has issued a national arrest warrant for U.S. cyclist Floyd Landis in connection with a case of data hacking at a doping laboratory, a prosecutor's office said.

French judge Thomas Cassuto, based in the Paris suburb of Nanterre, is seeking to question Landis about computer hacking dating back to September 2006 at the Chatenay-Malabry lab, said Astrid Granoux, spokeswoman for Nanterre's prosecutor's office. The laboratory near Paris had uncovered abnormally elevated testosterone levels in Landis' samples collected in the run-up to his 2006 Tour de France victory, leading to the eventual loss of his medal."

Learning the Art of Creating Computer Games Can Bo

ub3r n3u7r4l1st ub3r n3u7r4l1st writes  |  more than 4 years ago

ub3r n3u7r4l1st (1388939) writes "Computer games have a broad appeal that transcends gender, culture, age and socio-economic status. Now, computer scientists in the US think that creating computer games, rather than just playing them could boost students' critical and creative thinking skills as well as broaden their participation in computing. They discuss details in the current issue of the International Journal of Social and Humanistic Computing."

United States Government: How They Want To Take Ov

ub3r n3u7r4l1st ub3r n3u7r4l1st writes  |  more than 5 years ago

ub3r n3u7r4l1st (1388939) writes "Fox News recently ran a report about the Cars.gov website, the official "Cars for Clunkers" site that allows you to trade in your old car and get money to buy a new, fuel-efficient vehicle, has a very odd Terms of Service.

When you click on the button on the official site to submit a transaction, a warning box pops up that states the following:

"This application provides access to the DoT CARS system. When logged on to the CARS system, your computer is considered a Federal computer system and is the property of the US Government. Any or all uses of this system and all files may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected, and disclosed to authorized CARS, DoT, and law enforcement personal, as well as authorized officials of other agencies, both domestic and foreign."

So basically, by clicking on "Continue", you've just made your personal computer, in your home, a Federal computer system, which would allow the government to spy on it!
