The Privacy Illusion

That whole part about items not enumerated were left to the people or states also includes privacy. I wish the government would mind it's own fucking business.

Umm.. You can take that statist attitude elsewhere.

there are so many reasons using your own property should be illegal and is immoral that this talking point is useless.

Again, and more pointedly, go fuck yourself for that.

When you get something that's not written to use a proprietary system like Java, then we'll talk. Till then, "freenet" really isn't "Free" and it's utter shit.

DRM Could Come To 3D Printers

zoloto Re:Shouldn't be patentable (315 comments)

Then people like myself will easily hack the firmware of the printers to prevent this DRM check from even being allowed.

Most engineering shops I work with don't have an internet connection let alone the cabling to wire a fucking printer to the internet.

Advertisers Never Intended To Honor DNT

zoloto Re:AdBlock &/Ghostery don't do as much (308 comments)

just to reply to the rant no one will read in its entirety, you can disable any and all of those whitelisted you don't want to see. ad-blocking shouldn't be an automatic blacklisting thing anyways. Pay a-fucking-ttention and participate in what you block or allow.

zoloto (586738) writes "Version 2.0 of the popular encryption software GnuPG was released at 12:27 CET. Best part is you can install GnuPG 1.4.5 and 2.0 side by side. From the announcement:

The GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) is GNU's tool for secure communication
and data storage. It can be used to encrypt data, create digital
signatures, help authenticating using Secure Shell and to provide a
framework for public key cryptography. It includes an advanced key
management facility and is compliant with the OpenPGP and S/MIME

GnuPG-2 has a different architecture than GnuPG-1 (e.g. 1.4.5) in that
it splits up functionality into several modules. However, both
versions may be installed alongside without any conflict. In fact,
the gpg version from GnuPG-1 is able to make use of the gpg-agent as
included in GnuPG-2 and allows for seamless passphrase caching. The
advantage of GnuPG-1 is its smaller size and the lack of dependency on
other modules at run and build time. We will keep maintaining GnuPG-1
versions because they are very useful for small systems and for server
based applications requiring only OpenPGP support.

GnuPG is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License
(GPL). GnuPG-2 works best on GNU/Linux or *BSD systems. Other POSIX
compliant systems are also supported but have not yet been tested very
