why i love my escort passport 8500

coderman: because a ticket for 95 in a 50 is expensive
coderman: because those new photo radar vans with the low power wide band Ka radar require a DSP to detect
coderman: go go speedracer!

Caller dials 911 because she can't get it her way, right away at Burger King

coderman: "Ma'am, we're not going to go down there and enforce your Western Bacon Cheeseburger."

Bruce Schneier weighs in with his comments on the recent legal decison equating encryption with criminal intent

coderman: "An appeals court in Minnesota has ruled that the presence of encryption software on a computer may be viewed as evidence of criminal intent."
coderman: "I am speechless."

Larry McVoy has come to believe that the open source business model cannot generate enough money to support the development of truly innovative software programs.

coderman: because truly and totally innovative/revolutionary open source software is not paid for by corporations hiring developers you fucking retard
coderman: it is built by ADHD coder freaks hell bent on some hare brained new fangled technology making that vision a reality, and then maybe after it is built the corporations will notice and start to send money (if they like it)
coderman: but cmon, requiring the benevolence of big corp to pay for open source?? who said that was the business model for all open source?
^matthew: Why do people keep insisting that money can be made from open source?



^matthew: "[lots of people] today announced the first criminal enforcement action targeting individuals committing copyright infringement on peer-to-peer (P2P) networks using cutting edge file-sharing technology known as BitTorrent."
^matthew: Immigration and Customs Enforcement is far too lame for their acronym.
seti: "The theft of copyrighted material is far from a victimless crime" - falsehoods become truth
seti: in other news, crime has been legalised in order to support a continuing source of acts for law enforcement in general to suppress.


^matthew: turns out, getting your ass kicked by a little girl is actually illegal.

coderman: "upon receipt of a request by the site owner or a third party in the second instance, BitTorrent would consider on a case-by-case basis requests to remove the link to that site from its indices. However, if the operator of the site does not take steps to prevent it, the automatic facilities used to create the indices are likely to find that site and index it again in a relatively short amount of time."
coderman: i wonder if they will have to change this to "on a case by case basis we can remove and prevent the re-crawl of a given torrent URL" or something of that nature
coderman: "In a recent case (please see http://www.onlinepolicy.org/action/legpolicy/opg_v_diebold/ for more information), a company that sent an infringement notification seeking removal of online materials that were protected by the fair use doctrine was ordered to pay such costs and attorneys fees. The company agreed to pay over $100,000" - translated as "TWO CAN PLAY THE LEGAL GAME, don't be brash"

my favorite legal response from thepiratebay.org

coderman: "Or what? You and Hans Brix will send us angry letters? Fortunately for you, we don't keep sharks as pets.
coderman: "Instead of simply recommending that you sodomize yourself with a retractable baton, let me recommend a specific model - the ASP 21". - that is actually a very fine baton (illegal in some states so check before you get fined/arrested :)
