    When the hell did they change that? Never heard of that law.

    Typical corporate protectionist bullsj1t.

    Doesn’t work like that. Since he has already released it open source, patent or not it is out there. And if a med company tried to patent it, he could shoot the patent down with ‘prior art’ claims pretty quickly, and he could even cite this article as part of his evidence.

    High enough that the NWS is thinking about using him as a substitute weather balloon.

    @ Al J Zira

    Theoretically, yes, on the caveat that your wireless is unprotected by encryption or access measures. They could be used for the purposes of sniffing traffic if the traffic is cleartext. For someone who wants to create a domestic surveillance hegemony, smart meters would be one way to go, or likely one method among many used.

    WPA2, Radius, or a PKI certificate would make snooping less than feasible outside of certain limited circumstances. If you are using Wireless, I would suggest making sure you have at least WPA2 with AES 256 encryption active.

    All right, guys, time for an IT systems analyst (aerospace industry) to chime in on this run.

    1. Metal Straight Jacket is mostly right. MOST computers are not engineered to run data comms through the AC connection. Unless you specifically set up a network segment to run through the power grid in your house, not happening.

    2. J Delta 1 Adams is partially correct. It can be done, but for most residential concerns it is not done. This is not a casual networking venture, though: you have to invest in specific hardware to go from 10-baseT/TX to AC data and back, it has short range and is subject to interference. This is used generally only in cases where it is not feasible to run separate data lines.

    @ Slap The Left

    James Crow does not appear to be vested in a solution to the terrorism gig, which makes me wonder if he is somehow making money on its prolonging?

    Only if the egg is moving at 88 miles an hour for the un-boil process.

    Saved. F^^^kin saved for future use.

    God bless ye veterans. Most of the civvie p^^sies you deal with will never know, but some of us do.

    We remember. And we thank you.

    This is the second time JRook has said anything I agree with. Snowballs seen in Hell; film at eleven.

    Certainly find it amusing, myself, given that the 17th century ideology so referenced is a major step up from the pre-biblical despotism / tribal structure concealed under the guise of ‘worker’s paradise’.

    You must have missed the actual test of the story, then. Dana checked with the TSA personnel in the terminal, they cleared her pens. It was American Airlines that had the beef.

    As to the Bullets part, it harkens back to the DIRECT QUOTE of AA’s own policy guidelines.

    Sorry, still calling foul on your explanation.

    @ Just Me in AZ

    I think he was referring to the rapid devolution of Intelligence in America leading to a bleak or nonexistent future for the children of today.

  • [2] January 27, 2015 at 2:32pm

    A spiel about truths from a guy who’s real-world accuracy on the truth is near enough to zero to be statistically nonexistent?

    Methinks DLV needs to do a revision to his museum scene, add you into the mix.

    “Loose Shells and Bullets are not acceptable, …”

    Shells == shotgun shells, or if you want to get wildly technical, any kind of ordinance designed to explode on impact, i.e. 88mm mortars.
    Shells =/= a marker in a .50-caliber deprimed case.

    Bullets == lead chunk commonly thrown out of the business end of a gun.
    Bullets =/= a pen cartridge affixed in the end of a deprimed 5.56 case.

    The Technician is on duty until 1630 today, if you have any further need of reading comprehension clarifications. Thank you, and have a nice day.

    I actually do have some small shred of respect for the plague, Zippy. It’s just doing it’s genetic programming.

    Have no respect for the DNC, though. They are fighting their genetic programming by deliberately following self-destructive courses of action.

  • [6] January 26, 2015 at 12:50pm

    You are in rare form today, amigo. Someone whizz in your Media Matters keyboard this morning?

  • [14] January 26, 2015 at 11:02am

    @ RJJ

    First, gotta say I love the stick figure IT avatar. Awesome stuff :)

    Second, just watched Saving Private Ryan weekend before last. Got a bit teary at the end, I’ll admit. I don’t consider it anti-war, though, I consider it anti-ps^^y. As in, goes to show you just how hard those troops were.

    Methinks I will do American Sniper this weekend. I don’t do theater, but I may make an exception for this one.

  • [12] January 26, 2015 at 10:57am

    Mild problem with your theory, amigo. Iran _says_ the attack was linked to Israel. Iran is also well past the point of institutional paranoia whereby they lift the bedskirt and think they see a Mossad agent in the shadows under there. (Protip: it’s a Grue, but don’t tell them that.)

    You’ll notice that for all the supposed damage that Israel has been causing to Iran’s military infrastructure and personnel, Iran isn’t doing anything notable about it. Kinda makes me wonder, Rookie, if their discourse has devolved to the point of throwing sj1t at the wall day in and day out, trying to see what sticks?

    @ Meltzen

    I always thought it was supposed to Virginians, to flog the dipsj1ts with tree-branches for all eternity.
