    Tax time upgrades...

    You'll be paying the early adopter tax, however at the same time there are very few new features on the scale of RTX that have been a complete flop and they are the best performing cards on the market. So you just have to decide if you are happy to pay premium dollars right now.

    Australian Federal MPs' computer network hacked

    Seriously, read it before continuing this conversation. Your understanding of corruption (or the definition you accept as being the only one), is way too limited for the scope of this discussion.

    Australian Federal MPs' computer network hacked

    Yes. Of course I would, that's the whole point, it would be pretty naive to think we haven't been affected if not a direct victim of corruption at some point in your life. But not all acts of corruption have an absolute negative effect, some acts of corruption actually net a positive result for nearly all involved. If you would just read the material I linked you would understand what I am saying.
  5. My house is half warmed with a wood burning heater and I use the electric blanket to take the chill out of the bed so I am not getting in a 2C bed at night. It is cheaper than running central heating by a very large margin.

    Australian Federal MPs' computer network hacked

    Claims no need for me to reply, then makes a reply. I know exactly what I am proposing. The world isn't black and white, it is not absolute in many ways. You need to understand that the implications of such things aren't always just bad or just good, there are many steps in the middle that can be be both depending on thousands of other factors.

    Do yourself a favor, and get educated before checking out of a conversation. defining corruption by only one severity metric and then ignoring the enormity of the scale and its effects means you will never truly be able to understand why and when it is bad. http://fortune.com/2014/08/07/corruption-economic-benefits/ http://blogs.worldbank.org/psd/when-is-corruption-good there is quite a wealth of discussion on the topic and it's not all the way many people think it is.

    Spotify banning ad blockers

    There's a bit on bandcamp for those bands but not much. In this day and age if a band doesn't put their music on distrokid or something similar (which gets it out to itunes, bandcamp, and most of the major online shops) then they just don't want to sell stuff. If these guys have albums out through normal distribution channels then you should be able to order them at most music shops (they never stock a large range anymore because physical media just doesn't sell anymore).
  9. How do you attach an electric blanket to this thing?

    VFEmail hacked and 2 decades worth of data is gone

    I predict it was someone who was using the email service to organise some sort of major crime and they are just getting rid of the evidence without it looking suspicious.
  13. The cops in the US must be horrible! In Australia when the police need to meet stupid quotas for drink driving test, they just take turns blowing into the breath tester to get their quota up. 99% of cops don't want to unfairly give out tickets and shit to innocent people. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-05-30/victoria-police-record-fake-roadside-breath-tests/9817846 It was only a small amount (1.5%) but all the same the police are people too.

    The Verge: How we built a copyright strike

    I don't know what they would use, hence why I said earlier that surely a lawyer has looked into this. I just haven't seen any yet. Personally I wouldn't be surprised if because they have monetized the whole system that they are no longer entitled to the "internet service" status and would be legally considered a publisher. You know what would happen to a book publisher if they published a book that turned out to be word for word the same as "gone with the wind"? I wouldn't be at all surprised if it gets a lot more messy before it gets any better.

    The Verge: How we built a copyright strike

    The whole reason it exists is to satisfy the DMCA safe harbor protections. According to the DMCA, youtube is under no obligation to remove or hide a video unless it receives a DMCA take down notice. At which point it is protected under the safe harbor (because it has this system in place). By removing a video that was not issued an official take down notice, they are not technically protected from legal recourse.
