microsoft is now adding the spyware from windows 10 to my windows 7 system. by scraping the web i've built the following *.BAT file, but i feel like there's got to be more. anybody got clues?

wusa /kb:3021917 /uninstall  /norestart
wusa /kb:3035583 /uninstall  /norestart
wusa /kb:2952664 /uninstall  /norestart
wusa /kb:3022345 /uninstall  /norestart
wusa /kb:3068708 /uninstall  /norestart
wusa /kb:2990214 /uninstall  /norestart

wusa /kb:3035538 /uninstall  /norestart
wusa /kb:3035538 /uninstall  /norestart
wusa /kb:3075249 /uninstall  /norestart

i think this is a losing game, and that i need a windows firewall similar to what the mac/os x people call "no snitch" or something. pointers?

Yep, Microsoft has gone straight NSA hostile. I saw this yesterday and had to do the same to my system: http://www.ghacks.net/2015/08/28/microsoft-intensifies-data-collection-on-windows-7-and-8-systems/

<< "I mean, think about how things have changed since 2008," Obama said. "Back then, I was the young, tech-savvy candidate of the future. Now I'm yesterday's news and Hillary has got a server in her house. I didn't even know you could have one of those in your house. I am so far behind. Did you know that? I would have gotten one." >>

i have always had a server in my house, even when all i had was UUCP over a 1200 baud modem. my e-mail has never been hosted elsewhere. now it seems that folks are figuring out why?

Please pardon me, but Obama was never "tech-savvy" even by 2008 standards. He was not outright hostile towards technology. In the political caste, this seems to be enough to be considered "tech-savvy".

It is even worse over here. 2/3 or more of our parliament is still made up from what +Kristian Köhntopp called "old men with ball-pens". Email, Chat, Social Media are things that (in their world view) only happen to secretaries and other underlings.

Well, cheaper is certainly a problem.   If they can get the management bit right the value added could be enough to command a premium...

this is dave at his happy best. if you're short of time, start at 27:00. you may find after that, that you have time to watch the first 26 minutes after all.
 
Finally - the #makewififast  talk, filmed at #battlemeshhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vWrFCZXOWk - I am glad to have finally come up with a great explanation as to why per-station queuing is needed in 802.11n (demo starts at 27 minutes in)

DNS Changes is the most interesting SIE channel ever. And remember, if you're not paid for the work you're doing with our services, your use of them is probably going to be free to you. Feel free to reach out to me on that topic if this new channel looks as interesting to you as it does to me.
Introduction to DNS Changes. Introduction. Farsight Security recently added a new channel to the Security Information Exchange (SIE) called DNS Changes. This channel combines data from Farsight's Passive DNS channels and DNSDB product to find never before-seen DNS Resource Record Sets (RRSet) ...

Nonetheless, it's worthwhile to point out that he didn't have a liberal bias -- he was out-and-out liberal.

good talk by jordan hubbard of ixsystems. we had to solve these problems in a portable (operating system independent) manner for BIND starting in 1990 or so, but this project gives me hope that some day DNS servers will not have to each be mini-operating-systems of their own.

<< What does it mean to be a center-right Republican? It means starting each day by asking, What world am I living in and how do I best align the country to thrive in that world? Offering market-based responses to science- and fact-based problems and opportunities. Being ready to compromise to get fundamentals like a transportation bill passed and making a distinction between an “expenditure” and an “investment.” There is a big difference between funding energy research, bioscience or a new university — and some pork-barrel project. >>

"We’re paying a huge price for the way the Tea Party has marginalized the center-right." I think this marginalization is effect, not cause. And the Tea Party is only one of two far-right forces in the Republican Party, the other being Christian fundamentalists. What both of these factions marginalize are intellectualism, education and reason, and compromise. They prefer dogma and an absolute adherence to some stated - albeit not necessarily static or consistent- position.

Room 110 is directly above the lobby. The music in the lobby was left on all night, in spite of a complaint to the lobby staff. June 12 2014 there was no way sleep was going to happen in that room. Sign me sleepless in Copenhagen. It is now 4:29am.
