Er, no, actually. Hacking is making changes to code, whether those changes are unauthorised or not. Getting into a locked system without any of the necessary passwords is cracking, and also may be authorised. That's what white hat hackers are hired for; to break into systems and fuck around with them, then tell each person who hired them what they did and how so the security of those systems can be improved.
NSA May Not Be Collecting Your Location Data From Telco Dragnet... Because It Gets It From Your GPS
Explains why they never came for me when I made a comment here I knew they wouldn't like. Not only is my GPS permanently switched off, but so is data roaming, making triangulation difficult (if not impossible).
Way back when, people would use the toilet or brew a cuppa when the ads were on, but I don't see Fox et al. suing them, nor are they suing JVC for people's ability to record the show and fast forward through the ads when watching it back. The fact is, Fox et al. are suing DISH for basically automating something that American people have been doing since the sale of the first VHS VCR, and I can't help wondering if Matt Groening is making a Simpsons episode about it yet.
OldGeezer said: There were rumors that the advertisers knew we were scanning through [the adverts] so they arranged them to give subliminal messages in the few seconds it took to zip through each ad. I remember it was pointed out that many of them seemed to put each of a 3 or 4 word ad slogan in large letters for seconds at a time so it can still be read at high speed.
Really? Explains my propensity to run around stabbing people while munching LSD-laced popcorn.
I haven't run across an Ogg Vorbis file in years.
You have, but being on a PC (obviously), you don't know that the samples of songs on Wikipedia are all encoded in Ogg Vorbis. I know this because I use a smartphone, and thus am unable to play these snippets directly, having to download them instead.
Most discs include the option to download MP3 and lossless FLAC versions of the songs as well.
Or my version: purchase CD and rip it onto my PC, then import the resulting WAV files into Audacity to create MP3 or FLAC files. Same discs, same tracks, same file formats, zero bandwidth usage. While it's technically illegal here in the UK (though not for much longer, thank Hargreaves), all the record companies know the BPI have always turned a blind eye to it, thus conferring implied permission.
Have every student protest by going everywhere on campus, except that one tiny area, with gags covering their mouths. The college can't restrict them to the 'Free Speech Area' while doing this because it doesn't require speech of any kind!
Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson (who are happily married and have children through the magic of mpreg) would like to respectfully refer you to the response given in Arkell v. Pressdram. This response is given further weight by the fact that those making it live in the UK, where the term of copyright is never greater than life+70, no matter who the legal copyright owner is.
The judgement doesn't seem to reference ASCAP's stupid little game of "we won't tell you which tracks you're no longer allowed to use".
Would you kindly tell me what part of "if it's in your catalogue, then it's covered by the blanket license you issued" doesn't deal with that and smack ASCAP down?
And my posts are STILL being held for moderation... don't you get bored of censoring people Mike?
Actually, censorship would be if your posts were deleted altogether, not simply held to check they're not anything like the following: Cheap kobe Shoes I looked at the size and realized it was not going t
New Football Boots Their alertness, agility, and strength make them formidable guard dogs and used as service dogs, guide dogs for the blind, therapy dogs, police dogs in K9 units, and occasionally herding cattle or sheep. After all, censorship is suppression of speech, not waste disposal.
Any attempt to curb piracy through arrests and lawsuits and new copyright laws will create a harder-to-find underground of filesharing.
Or lead to greater confusion as in the case of someone I know who once got caught and had to pay a fine, and who now believes that if you pay for media you never infringe copyright, and you always infringe if you don't. I've tried to explain to her that my books from Project Gutenberg aren't infringing because they belong to me already, just as they belong to everybody, and my copy of 'Download This Song' by MC Lars is A-OK because I downloaded it for free with the artist's direct permission, but she still thinks I broke the law because she doesn't understand that copyright infringement only occurs where copying takes place without permission where it's required, whether or not the end user has made a payment for their copy.
Your contract with the network when you get the show is you're going to watch the spots. Otherwise you couldn't get the show on an ad-supported basis.
Seems like Dish may have a new market amongst satellite and cable viewers. After all, they've already paid their subscription fees, so they shouldn't have to watch the nine minute long ad breaks!
"At" was not intended to signify "testified", but only that the author was apparently in attendance.
Whether or not Giovanetti actually spoke or not is neither here nor there. The guy gave an 'overview', which would have been read out, so he still made remarks, even if they were indirect.
it's the inevitable result of parents refusing vaccinations of their children, thus proving that fear of Autism causes more death and disease than Autism itself does.
BTW, do you think the same thing is said about OOTB as is said about vaccinations; "It's only a little prick"?
