    Re: Re: Re: To funny.

    Part of that is international law...
    They arnt suppose to be monitoring anything that does not GO IN/GO OUT of their own nation...
    Unless some OTHER nation says they wish that THESE folks would do the work...

    Re: To funny.

    How many ways can you communicate on the NET..
    If you cant count above are abit lacking..
    NOW try to monitor this for Every person in the USA..

    To funny.

    Lets ask a question..
    Do the OLD ways to protect messages still work? YES.
    Do they also work on the NET? YES
    Are there things about the NET, that can make Private msg MORE protected? It can..

    Problems our Covert people dont like..
    1. TRANSLATORS...they have had problems with this. and NOT having enough of them.
    2. Computer people. MOSt of the agencies dont LIKE COMPUTERS..and dont understand most of HOW to do things with them.

    HOW to fix..
    ALL msg in TXT format, and translated with google translate...

    Im wondering when the ISP's and Tier 2 providers will CUT the cords on the Companies that Complain..
    Can you see Rights corp, BMG, and all the others having restricted or Dropped internet access..
    It would solve lots of problems..

    lETS SEE...

    Piliticos, wish to monitor and Watch us..
    And the only reasoning I can see, is to PROTECT THEMSELVES..
    This is as bad as AFTER President Kennedy..

    More laws, More surveillance, MORE protections for people, who are AFRAID to ride in an OPEN CAR..

    I wonder WHy a politician would be AFRAID of the people they represent...

    What the???

    "for many of whom traditional cable is a utterly foreign concept."

    Its funny, that I have to explain 'Broadcast TV' to people..
    Im even setting up my 3 Antenna and Booster setup for OLDER folks who know what it is.. Even added an Aux. Antenna to a Dish system, for better reception(the dish SUCKS for local channels.)

    I think its funny, that SAT and CABLE give local channels, and most people dont even know THEY ARE LOCAL AND FREE..

    Its fun setting up Antennas, and explaining to people WHAT they have to do to get a good signal..
    Living in Farming areas, we have over 20 channels, and I know Large cities have TONS more..

    IF you really want to know..

    This type of thing is already out there..
    Its used by Linux based system..
    And converting would take little to nothing to convert..

    Rural Internet and Caps

    recently my ISP raised the Speed of our net..
    with the idea that family use would be faster..

    recently youtube, hulu, and many others went to 60fps video.
    Large data hit.

    I play a few games that are not optimized..

    For all of this, and the ISP thinking That speed is what we need. There is a Data cap. 300gig. and it wasnt hard to hit.
    The idea of increasing Speed, and not the CAP..even in a Family stupid.
    Think about all the devices you have that USE the net..Your PHONE, Computer, Xbox/PS, Amazon movie/Roku/.../...

    Then the idea that the Next level of payment adds 100gig, and is $30 more..

    This is going to be a fun time..

    Where is the trade?

    All I see here are ways to TRY and blame others for your lost IDEA of the money you THINK you should be EARNING on a Copyright from the day NOAH, left the Ark..

    This is the IDEA, that you create an IDEA(not a product) and that Every person on earth should OWE you $1..and to get that $ will charge EVERY person that uses it...$10..
    Even tho, 99% of the world has no use for your product, you STILL EXPECT $1 from them ALL..
    ISNT there a Clause about a product, that becomes So common of use, that CR is removed??

  • Oct 8th, 2015 @ 12:17pm


    yes I do..speak in this way..
    its interesting that MANY people dont hear the Points. people are saying, and If you add abit of Expression...they tend to listen better..
    Listen to News and Politics..

    Re: Wrong goal?

    WE will charge as much as possible, then LOWER the price is small amounts, to get the MOST out of a $0.50 product..
    WE control the WHOLE of the industry From recording to distribution to END sales..

    REST of the world...
    WOW, a new format..
    WOW, and can get 7 Quality albums on 1 CD
    WOW, I can get 700+ Songs on 1 DVD..
    WOW, I can play these on my Car stereo..
    WOW, Bluetooth, I can NOW use my 64gig iphone and send my Music to my Stereo, DVD, CAR, using BT..

    Understand something..
    MOST money earned by artists was from Tours?
    Recordings, generally, made them $0.03-0.05 per sale..

    1. as soon as he was dismissed...
    His passwords would have been ERASED.
    This is AUTOMATIC, and the sysop's should of done it.
    2. ANY SMART person has a log of WHO changed things on ANY SERVER, ANY DATA...even windows keeps an IDEA of who did what and when.
    was any of this pointed out, or shown?
    3. SAID BEFORE...system links to the NET, should not have any direct Links to the MAIN SYSTEM.. Anything Submitted for CHANGE from a Internet, is to be CHECKED before admitting to the MAIN SERVERS...
    PERIOD..NO IF/AND/ Or But.

    So, HOW can the Feds, SHOW damages, when there wasnt any??
    They DIDNT ASK the LA Times..they bypassed them. and Made up their OWN NUMBERS..

    Is this RIGHT for the gov.??

    Lots of Different things here

    There are differences here..
    MAKING a law..
    Enforcing a law..
    How to find those Abusing the law..
    The original meaning of the law was for the SALE and distribution of Media/music/movies..
    Unless it was PUSHED, making copies for your OWN use, was never a concern.
    But with changing FORMATS, Reel/VHS/BETA/CD/DVD/FLASH/THE CLOUD... HOW do we keep a copy of our MEDIA?
    the Fun part is What happens, and WHO is looking for Stolen media?
    City/state/feds??? they all have other things to do.
    So, the INDUSTRY does the looking.
    this is not a POLICE OFFICER, Knocking on the Door.
    This is a LARGE ELEPHANT, Rushing into your Home, sticking its NOSE into every corner of your business, and Life.

    The problem comes with HOW they wish to do it..
    The LAWS are there, its HOW they find the Media, and HOW they enforce it, and What rights they have TO ENFORCE..

    I have customers..

    I have customers that are on limited access, and that dont REALLY use the net for much..
    the systems HATE IT..and thats win8.1
    The system gets bogged down, because ti wants access to the net, to Download updates, and do OTHER THINGS..
    I go over to fix things, and its SLOW AS SNOT, because its trying to do updates, install changes, Update drivers, and OTHER STUFF..

    NOW you are telling me that Win10 is a NET BOOK interface..its WANTS the net. that this is NOT A stand alone OS, that just Works...on its own, without contacting MS..
    REALLY sounds like the first steps of a RENTAL OS..
    PAY for it to work properly.
    Pay for your access to Everything else..
    PAY for your DATA..

    YOU give the NEWS..
    WE make the opinions.

    Marilyn Monroe


    WHo is the estate???
    I dont think she had any children...

    The Estate of Marilyn Monroe LLC is a joint venture composed of the star's original estate, Neca Inc., and licensing company Authentic Brands Group LLC. Authentic Brands also licenses the rights of publicity for other dead celebrities, including famed reggae star Bob Marley, according to the company's website.

    To many Neca Inc to find the proper one..

    ALL this paper work to hide money, and the odds are, NO TAXES were paid..

    The IRS needs better computing power to TRACK all this stuff, as well as Better programming to decipher, ALL the paper work that HIDES this stuff..

    THE IRS was CUT 30% this year..
    Working with Old computers, and OLD programs...
    They REALLY cant do their job..

    It WASNT an incident until the teachers SAID IT WAS..

    Are we so dumb, that OUR teachers dont understand what an explosive IS..?
    For all that he had, to the teachers it could of been a PDA, a walkman, MP3 player...

    the #1 problem here, is copyrights..
    WHO sets the abilities and HOW my car drives..
    They are customizing things to the point that your CAR isnt YOUR CAR..modding and adjusting and anything TECH is not giving the consumer Access to do anything to these cars..

    So, who is responsible FOR ITS DRIVING? not you.
    Since you have no or little responsibility to HOW the car drives...WHO gets the ticket? WHO get to goto jail if it kills someone?

    NOT YOU..

    If they want to OWN all of the control of the car...arnt the makers responsible for its working?
    This could mean they are responsible for the INSURANCE you are no longer the driver.

    I would LOVE this..for a few good reasons..
    UPDATES?? they find a flaw in the coding, and you dont have access to UPDATE IT..who is responsible?
    The Computer FAILS and you are stranded...who is responsible?
    There are to many things about driving, that makes the CAR responsible, and NOT the driver..
    I posted this before..and will again..

    I will add something here also..

    YOU COULD make a small computer to monitor and make your car work, BEST...the problem is restrictions and limits Put in the computers to cause your car NOT to do what you want.
    Insted of changing a few hardware PARTS, they do much of it in the computer NOW..

    And for all of this, Every car type has a CUSTOM, control, and a Custom COST..
    WHY in hell do we need a $50 computer with software that cost $200 in our cars??
    IT shouldnt be HARD to make a computer interface that would PLUG into any car, and monitor/control HOW the car works to the BEST it can..
    WE USED to do all this mechanically, with a few adjustments for altitude and seasons..

    FORCE and Counter force

    Forcing a group that has an IDEAL to change, is a PAIN in the Buttox..
    The difficulty tends to be what THEY can do to augment/change the numbers..
    The problems here, is that the NET can be abused in both Hardware and Software.. The companies can Purposely CRIPPLE themselves just to Force something Worse to happen and say, 'See, we told ya so'...

    Another fun part of this, tends to be that Many companies use THEIR OWN DNS..which can route you all over the place to get where you need/want.
    Then add in the security/insecurity of our countries Political militaria (FBI, CIA, and other 3-4 letter groups) and a DNS can send you in and out of the Limbo of having every packet Scanned and monitored..

    Until you can get a UNBIASED, middle man INSIDE the corp to watch/monitor what is happening...these folks can do ALLOT to mess with people.
