Wtf, dude. This is not complicated. Of course people can organize to try to enact peaceful political change. BUT. This should not give them the right or power to essentially bypass all campaign funding restrictions by pretending that donated money is coming from a corporation (which is a legal FICTION) versus from powerful rich people. If a person wants to contribute financially to a politician, then they can do so, personally and legally.
Re: Re: Re: Detecting video in HTTPS is probably impossible
My, aren't you clever. I didn't realize that https meant encrypted until you did all caps bolded text at me. Oh wait, no, I do know that, and I don't have as high an opinion of https "encryption" as I guess you do.
Also, the metadata of the packets is *not* encrypted.
Also, you're the moron if you really think all big ISPs are not doing DPI constantly.
Well, also if the slowing effect also did cause the provider to lower the bitrate, thereby providing a still smooth albeit lower resolution stream. What I've been reading is that the throttling is not having that desired effect.
Note that he didn't say they couldn't tell the difference, only that they rate the video as higher quality. And actually, that makes sense, because super hi-def video is quite ugly, except in some rare, outdoorsy/naturey kind of settings. Hi-def video shows us stuff we don't want to see, and for those of us used to low-def all of our lives, it brings to mind the uncanny valley.
If a website makes a nice little request (but not holding the content hostage) to turn off my ad-blocker, I actually do consider it, and more often than not, I will turn it off, just to see how obnoxious the ads are. If they aren't too bad, I'll leave it off for that site. Win-win.
Both perfectly legal acts. I use an "encrypted website." (This apparently refers to Wickr, suggesting prosecutors really have no idea what they're actually dealing with.) I use Wickr and can quote from religious texts (even the unpopular ones).
Karl, do you think that if the government ever decided to come after you that they would *not* use this information against you?
Two daughters will be collecting money for a poem their mother wrote over 80 years ago and never once made a move to monetize during her 99-year lifespan. In fact, without The Big Bang Theory popularizing the poem -- nearly a century removed from its original creation -- there'd be nothing for the sisters to sue about, much less hope to collect on.
Mike, cut out the bullshit. You and I both know that Edith Newlin would never have written that poem if she hadn't known that her two daughters would be able to sue God and country almost a century later for infringement by a (possibly undeservedly) wildly successful TV show.
The National Sheriffs’ Association is shocked and disappointed by the Department of Justice’s decision to suspend the equitable sharing of Asset Forfeiture Program funds to state, local, and tribal law enforcement. This is yet another blow to those who work every day to prevent terrorism and crime in our communities.
By rescinding nearly $1.2 billion from the Program, Congress and the Administration have openly chosen to focus on the financial bottom line over protecting communities. They should be ashamed because this decision will have severe and direct consequences for our communities.
TL;DR: Waaaah, if we don't get our piece of the money that we rightfully stole, we won't be able to stop turrism anymore!
You do make one vary good point, why would anyone buy a new copy if a "used" copy is available?
Actually, this is the simplest to answer. Early adoption. There are always those folks that want to be first to own the newest car, the best video card, the hottest new game. That comes at a premium of course, but they know this and accept it as the cost of getting it "first". And then there are the folks that will wait until a $60 game winds up in the $5 bin before they buy it. Digital selling doesn't really change anything on that score, except that the price will match a more "real" value quicker than it used to.
Actually, Denuvo has been doing a surprisingly good job of preventing piracy. I never thought I'd see the day, but the scene is having a very tough time cracking that nut. And so far, the software using Denuvo that has been cracked performs sub-optimally.
