Erm, no they didn't.

Local councils have an option to 'use' libreoffice, and they have a company providing support. The end is quite far, but this is a nice beginning.

To all the people who want /v/jailbait banned, why don't you also want subs that feature homosexual porn banned also? submitted by MGHOW to AskVoat

that's kinda the point though right? we're all brought up to think that there is a magic age where you're suddenly mature enough for sex, and that age varies for many countries because it's arbitrary.

for instance in the UK two 16 year olds can have sex but if one records it, then they're both breaking the law.

if they distribute it then it's really bad-

conversely homosexuality was considered as evil/abhorrent and completely illegal in the 70s/80s.. how can you deny one persons right to prejudice when you hold one of your own?

(btw, I don't endorse CP, just trying to play devils advocate)

Your Unhashable Fingerprints Secure Nothing submitted by cpoakes to technology

I agree with the non-revokable part.

but in defence of what phones actually do with fingerprint sensing now, (and Laptops I guess), is that they place the image into a vector template and produce an algorithm which can reproduce the fingerprint.

then this algorithm is hashed and stored.. each time you press your finger on the sensor the CPU has to re-determine the algorithm that is used to figure out the fingerprint. (actually, in the case of apple they store 5 differing algorithms and 3 have to match)

Also given the way the capacitive sensor works it's not as simple as making some jelly in the right outline- it has to be living skin otherwise the capacitive sensor wont fire at all.

although, nothing stops anyone just grabbing your thumb when you're asleep. -- but for all intents and purposes it's much more secure than a 4 digit passcode.. and it's good in addition to another layer of security.

A good way to think of fingerprints or most biometrics is as a username- not a password.

Doesn't work that way, "extremists" just means "assholes who are using religion to mask their hate and be assholes to other humans"

EDIT: Feeling pretty salty at the downvotes, y'all remember 'extremist' catholics that were basically fighting for independant ireland.. 50% of all terror attacks in europe in the 90s.. would you call Catholicism now a violent religion?

There are parables with history with these things, you just have to look.

Linus Torvalds targeted by honeytraps, claims Eric S. Raymond submitted by 53army to technology

Don't listen to this dude, while it might be true- this man has no credibility and we shouldn't believe anything he says.

Unless someone with credibility corroborates it- then it's like the homeless people down in the shelter telling you government secrets.

Steve Wozniak confirms in interview that Steve Jobs played no role at all in designing the Apple I or II computers submitted by individualin1984 to whatever

the difference being that Xerox was asked if Jobs/Woz was allowed to use the concept and because Xerox saw no future in it, they agreed.
