  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    It's not at all double jeopardy. A contempt of court order is a unique instance, for a particular action (or lack of action). Double jeopardy, in the US, applies only to being tried twice for the same, specific action, and...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    runs the country (at least until Trump and Pence make bail - if that's even possible.) There is no mechanism whereby the Speaker of the House is only temporarily President -- VP can be acting POTUS, but if there's no...
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?

    citizenship of Puerto Rico or even the US Puerto Rico is part of the US. (And people born in PR are full citizens, unlike, say, American Samoa.) You cannot be made a "citizen of Puerto Rico" -- you're a...

  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    People who say that should actually read the decision. SCOTUS did not declare that corporations are humans and have rights; what they ruled was that corporations are comprised of people, and those people do not lose their rights by collecting...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Also, you have to only burn them at the same rate the carbon released is absorbed by trees you planted. Which means you'd have to plant a lot more trees than you cut down....
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    It's pretty easy to remove a naturalized citizen's citizenship in the US -- you simply declare that they lied about something, or omitted something, that would have influenced the naturalization. See https://immigration.findlaw.com/citizenship/can-your-u-s-citizenship-be-revoked-.html for various ways to do so. Removal of...
  • Commented on Publishing: A Slice of Life
    The last TV I bought spent a ridiculous amount of time in the manual describing the serial-port protocol....
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    Josh Marshall addressed that at TPM, and said the experts he spoke to were surprised at the timing, but do believe it to be essentially a coincidence....

  • Commented on Media Piracy and Unpronounceable Names
    Apparently I have to keep saying it: stop it with the personal attacks....
  • Commented on Media Piracy and Unpronounceable Names
    A really good rule of thumb is: when you start writing increasingly-long comments in response to someone else who is doing the same, it's perhaps time to go away for a bit, and ... not post responses. Nobody is going...
  • Commented on Media Piracy and Unpronounceable Names

  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    Or you just use compressed air and a cloth, which works nearly as well....
  • Commented on Dread of Heinleinism
    I had a slide rule because, in my high school physics class, the teacher had a giant slide rule on the wall, and spent one class explaining it. Then snidely said we could use one of those, even though we...

  • Commented on SF For Nothing, Stories For Free
    You are part of the reason it was closed. It's back open for now, but any personal commentary, any threats, it gets shut down again. Is this not clear?...
  • Commented on SF For Nothing, Stories For Free
    The threats and personal attacks won't be allowed here, either....
  • Commented on The Pivot
    Even for a post left to fallow as much as this one has, this is shameful. Stop the personal commentary, stop the veiled and unveiled threats (even the ones not connected to reality), completely, or I will figure out if...
  • Commented on The Pivot
    all cities have police forces Untrue: the city of Cupertino, California, does not have their own police force. Instead, they pay to have the county sheriffs cover the area....
  • Commented on Not dead but dreaming
    Sure. They're very common -- a lot of banks give them out these days. Or you can use your phone. Coincidentally, Firefox release a WebAuthentication version today. (And even more coincidentally for me, I watched a demo of this with...
  • Commented on Not dead but dreaming
    Also, once they have one password for a person, they'll try it on a bunch of different services, since people tend to re-use passwords. (So when, e.g., Twitter said "you have to change your password!" I didn't panic, because the...

  • Commented on On hold
    For your consideration, the response of the ignorant and evil. If the poor are more obese, one with any curiosity might wonder how that might have come to be, and perhaps examined the types of food that the poor are...
  • Commented on Server upgrade coming
    The push for https is not about privacy -- it's about data integrity, to reduce the likelihood of MITM attacks, which has already resulted in malware being distributed. It's also a "fuck you" on google's part to certain ISPs who...
  • Commented on Test Case
    ZFSOnLinux is going strong, and in fact I've grabbed a couple of major features from it to port to FreeBSD (sequential scans, and currently working on native encryption). I still prefer FreeBSD, as it's the system I've been using for...
  • Commented on Test Case
    Both of you cut it out. I do wish WordPress had killfiles so you two could just ignore each other, but since it doesn't, exercise some blasted willpower. I was having a really nice day fighting zfs and the freebsd...
