Doesn’t the stuff you keep online deserve the same protection as the stuff you keep offline? Under a law called ECPA, government agencies in the U.S. can see what you’ve written and stored online without a warrant. Sign this petition to the White House and tell the government to get a warrant!

We are taking a break this month from a formal talk, and just hanging out. Have a few beers (and/or your choice of food/beverage) and talk configuration management and other technologies of interest.
Sysadmins/Devops folks of all levels and interests are welcome. There is no fixed agenda, just come and have a good time with fellow geeks.
Google Maps link: http://goo.gl/maps/P89C
While RSVP is not mandatory, please RSVP here http://www.meetup.com/puppetnyc-meetings/events/72918942/ so we can get a count for the venue.

Please feel to spread the word.

They also own the 1st web browser subject to a 'tax' in order to "recoup the time and costs involved in rendering the website into a antique browser"

Oh, my bad. Yeah I don't notice anything either. I think it was just all under the hood stuff.

I wonder. Perhaps if you never used #verbatimtool, might +Google eventually learn?
 
Why must I always switch to #verbatimtool in order to get useful results from +Google?

The official word, apparently, is that, "The searches you make on Google are usually improved to help minimize your time spent searching and get you the information you really want."

I realize that Google makes more money by catering to the lowest common denominator, and I'm sure that does something for the value of my stock, but can we dispense with the doublespeak and presumption? If I have to switch to verbatim mode for 95% of my research, you aren't improving my searches or saving me time. I know we're a small minority, but some of us actually think like a computer when we use a search engine. One might hope that Google, an organization with such tremendous engineering talent, could empathize.

Perhaps Google could at least offer us a way to disable or fine tune "idiot mode" for our accounts? Alternatively, when I go out of my way to use quotation marks and other operators in a non-verbatim search, perhaps Google could take them a bit more seriously?
