Do you tell your customers that you block 26 countries and refuse to let people talk to their relatives?

#McAffe attacks the open source model on #alexjones   show over #heartbleed saying that microsoft is better because hire more people  to test software talking about heart bleed.
http://youtu.be/Jfw8klGAOxU?t=1h34m42s
He says there are only 4 paid developers and leaves the testing up to users. It relies on uses to report problems he says.
He says the open source model is not proper and that openssl has not been built in the proper way.
He says there is no organized quality control or testing process for openssl.

my answer is :
I dont trust mcaffe, I trust the open source community. I dont run mcaffe products or microsoft products. I dont trust the team of testers at microsoft or the management there to be honest , also the same goes for mcaffe. As far as I know Microsoft does not hire Americans but goes to third word nations to recruit workers undercutting our wages to hire cheap testers, and they do not have any visibility into what they are doing. http://www.informationweek.com/applications/microsoft-says-6000-jobs-open-wants-more-visas/d/d-id/1106549? http://www.informationweek.com/team-building-and-staffing/h-1b-workers-not-best-or-brightest-study-says/d/d-id/1108894? they are destroying the job market and not really providing value.

1. first of all with open ssl the group is forced to disclose all errors and fix them. Microsoft does not have to disclose them. It would not be the first time that Microsoft sits on a security flaw. http://tech.slashdot.org/story/04/02/10/2031219/microsoft-sits-on-security-flaw-for-six-months

2. second, he says they rely on users to test the software, users like google! google has a whole security team working on testing software and has bounties as well. The users have the right to study the source code and each user has the freedom to use it or not. This is not given with non-free software, normally you do not have the freedom to choose to update one piece or another.

3. Mcaffe has been blasting open source for a long time and his idea is to hide the sources (and the problems) for security. I dont think we can trust these large companies to tell us the truth or act in our interest.

4. The open source model relies on users to report problems, that is why debian stable does not use the latest version. No one is forcing you to use the latest version. For example, the “oldstable” versions of Debian Squeeze are not vulnerable. Why? because they use old and tested software. No one has forced you to upgrade your production webservers. https://wiki.debian.org/DebianOldStable

+WOW! Internet, Cable, Phone is blocking 26 countries from making calls, including Kosovo. """The blocking of country codes by international operators as a prevention control is an aggressive mechanism, which would result in stopping all traffic to an affected country and is contrary to existing Recommendation ITU-T (E.156). The consequences of such an act have the potential to affect not only incomes for these countries but also undermine the social and economic benefits of these calls.""" http://itu4u.wordpress.com/2013/06/21/countering-the-upsurge-in-numbering-fraud/
The first quarter of 2013 has seen ITU receive over 200 reports concerning fraud involving the misappropriation or misuse of international numbering resources. Network operators and tax authorities...

Listening to Show 273 - Auctioning the Republic
dancarlin talks about campaign finance reform and +Rootstrikers 
Player FM
The Supreme Court says trading campaign contributions for political influence isn't a bug in the U.S. system, it's a feature. Dan weighs in on the ramifications of such a decision. Also, Cuban Twitter isn't so Cuban.

On April 2, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in McCutcheon v. FEC. The plurality opinion concludes that the overall biennial contribution limits at 2 U.S.C. §441a(a)(3) are unconstitutional under the First Amendment. The Court’s decision does not affect an individual’s per-committee limits found at 2 U.S.C. §441a(a)(1)

I am still feeling sick from this. The oil was rancid. Lettuce wilted. The cooks were not chinese, but looked hispanic. Will never ever go there again. I hope I can recover for tomorrow to go to work, still running to the toilet!
