Obviously, given my nick, I can't resist to respond to this one
Incidentally I still have a parallel SCSI adapter in my Windows 10 PC. Took a bit of work (Convince a Win2k8 LSI server driver that it should install), but I now have access to my Exabyte VXA-2 tape drive.
So, is US congress now going to change the law so a US judge can permit the US DOJ to access foreign servers? May we assume reciprocity, so that other countries can then serve warrants to providers in the USA and legally demand access to data stored on US soil?
I think not..
Yep. Germany's Mrs Merkel made more than one huge mistake..
The sheets of silicon need to be produced and replaced regularly with huge environmental impact. Those 'elegant' windmills ruin the sight, are very noisy, very expensive to operate and maintain, and generate flicker vertigo. Here's a small exampe of what thos 'elegant' windmills look like, from a pro-wind site: http://www.milieubewust.net/du...
You really call this elegant? And remember that the country must be plastered with these things to get even close to the energy output of a single modern nuclear plant.
And I want to become a Billionaire. I have saved up 25 Euro's already..
Replacing their nucleair power with wind/solar is naïve and unrealistic at best. They can 'want', but they can't 'do'.
The reference to the 'total renewable energy in France' is a joke. France has 66 Million inhabitants. China more than 1.3 Billion. So even though it sounds impressive at first sight, it's a very, very small portion of their total energy requirement.
I have both DAB+ and FM in my car (Swedish Volvo), and I live in the Netherlands, a small, totally flat country. These circumstances should be perfect for DAB+. Even so, it drops out at random places where FM works just fine.
Looking at Norway, unless they plaster the country with transmitters, there's no way they can arrange proper coverage for DAB+.
The real problem isn't Facebook, Twitter, the Russians, Chinese or whatever.
The real problem is who gets to decide what news is real or fake.
This is no more or less than an attempt to set up a 'Ministry of Truth'. People are very easy to manipulate, and having a system to gauge 'news' gives anyone immense power over those people.
Ever heard of "damage control"? Surely state officials will deny any such thing.
They just went as far as demanding a German school in Turkey to ban any mention or celebration of Christmas.
How about a fair trade. German schools in Turkey will refrain from references to Christmas if Turkey takes their islamic sh*t out of all European countries and shoves it..
Can anyone perhaps explain what data Facebook can glean from communications that according to WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted? If that is true, how are they reading your communications?
I wrote my own terminal emulator in assembly on a CP/M system. Worked really well, except I couldn't get the darn X-Modem protocol right. Had to settle for Kermit.
Later I ran a 4-line Maximus BBS, wrote a DOS TSR software to redirect sysadmin yells over Netware IPX. Oh the days..
If I would wear a tin-foil hat, then I'd suggest that Asia is carpet bombing the Western digital world. The difference being that no lives are being taken (yet), no physical damage occurs (yet) and no bomber planes are flying. Oh, and contrary to physical warfare, WE ARE PAYING for our own bombs. Small amounts each time,but we buy the cr*p that comes out of Asia.
I'm not wearing a tin-foil hat, but still I wonder if the cr*ppy firmware and spreading of so many exploitable devices isn't just part of the plan.
Lotus Notes / Domino and other IBM software that is mandatory on Windows laptops is to blame for much of this. Mac OS users are much more on their own, are not bogged down with all the company cr*p and just do their job.
