Hummingbird Status update, still doing very well. Getting a mix of nectar and protein per vet recommendation. Has trained his keeper to feed him when he chirps. Now he just needs time to molt and grow a new set of feathers. Oh and maybe stop jumping off the high branch in his habitat and doing a flaceplant when his wings won't hold him. Although him trying may be very good exercise to keep his wing muscles in tone.

I have a feeling it will be status quo for some time. I'll try and update if I hear about any changes.

That computer is certainly dead....

May not have hit the hard drive, but it will need a new motherboard .... I'm sure the Borg will have it patched up PDQ.

Ah, omnipotent gods who can do no wrong .....

Oh sorry, I thought you were referring to me .... :-))

But we have a classical paradox,

"Can a deity create a rock so heavy that even the deity itself cannot lift it? If so, then the rock is now unliftable, limiting the deity's power. But if not, then the deity is still not omnipotent because it cannot create that rock."

Ah, but he can. He simply creates a rock (naked singularity) in a universe without dimensions and he can't lift it. Then when it is time to lift it, he creates the dimensions so that the rock can move. Now if you insist that it be done in this universe, your question is moot as the rules of this universe preclude that possibility. For some of these quetions you have to think outside the box (universe.)

My main beef on these boards is all politicians being lumped into a group of low lifes with their noses in the trough, and being unfairly criticised. I will always fight back against that.

Despite the complete unawareness of some posters on this thread, at least some of the "Lawmakers" of the USA realise how some so called "crimes" as claimed are ridiculous...


'Aaron's Law' back on the table to bring sanity to US hacking laws

Zofgren, Wyden and Paul back changes to Computer Fraud and Abuse Act

... The bill [PDF] would reform the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) to make sure it did not fall so heavily on minor abuses of terms and conditions.

Its namesake, Aaron Swartz faced up to 35 years in jail, and a $1m fine...

... As a result of his actions, Swartz was arrested under breaking-and-entering charges under state law, and then prosecuted under federal law for 11 violations of the CFAA – actions that many felt were wholly out of proportion to what he actually did.

Swartz turned down a plea bargain that would have seen him sentenced to six months in jail; the day after his counteroffer was rejected, he was found dead in his New York apartment having hanged himself...

... The senator also said: "Violating a smartphone app’s terms of service or sharing academic articles should not be punished more harshly than a government agency hacking into Senate files" - a reference to the controversial CIA hacking of the Senate Intelligence Committee's computers last year. He went on: "The CFAA is so inconsistently and capriciously applied it results in misguided, heavy-handed prosecution. Aaron’s Law would curb this abuse while still preserving the tools needed to prosecute malicious attacks."...



So... USA 'law' is all just a capricious game of "gameshow" plea bargaining...

And yet people die before ever reaching Justice...


Only in the USA?...

All in our only one world,
Martin

So your geek hero decided to Kill himslef rather then do 6 months In a minimum security prison.
He did not violate a cell phone app. And he he didnt just share academic papers. He stole those papers by breaking and enetering and hacking into the data base. He also wilfully hid his idenetity in committing those thefts.
If he had not killed himself who knows what effect he may have made in changing the laws he so hated to abide by. He might have even been found innocent.
We will never know because he didnt have the balls to stand up for his own beliefs.

Yes, 6 months at Club Fed. Ask Martha Stewart how bad that is .....
Maybe he should have faced those state charges, for breaking and entering, felony, 10 years hard time. Mind you that wasn't a computer crime, that was a physical crime, a burglar breaking into a building.

I see Martin is still up to his self denial. One sentence he says 35 years, next sentence he says six months. He knows which is correct but he can't cry hes tears over the true statement, so he has to say the other in a bid to attempt to get false sympathy for him. It isn't working Martin. Everyone sees your ploy.

The coward should have been happy with the deal. Six months vacation with free room and board is a good deal compared to Massachusetts making you a felon with loss of civil rights and putting you into a cell with Bubba to be his wife. But if you break into someplace, then you deserve to be punished.

SETI started a Fora called Politics, Discussion of Political Topics, not Debates of Political Topics.

Actually, Seti did neither. It started a forum (singular) simply called Politics. The reason for that was to take all the heated stuff away from the cafe where it was causing a problem. It was then decided to take a rather more "lenient view" of posts made within the new forum, but still firmly within the rules.

Posts here are discussions, debates, exchanges of views, however you wish to see it, upon a range of topics.


Besides, now someone wants to debate the meaning of debate? LOL!

debate: noun
A discussion in which reasons are advanced for and against some proposition or proposal
Seems like a debate is a discussion .........

What was incorrect about This Ruling?

The only thing wrong is Martin's mind is hermetically sealed. It appears to operate like this, once upon a time a man discriminated against a woman, therefore all men always discriminate against women. Same thinking as a black man broke the law therefore all black men break the law.

Now, I'm sure Martin wasn't sitting in the jury box so he does not know what evidence was presented, nor did he watch the witnesses testify to know their creditability, so how he can form an opinion on this specific case .... he can't, but he can use a thought process like that outlined above .....

That might be what YOU alone think and an unfortunate example of your style of thought processes.

Or are you lost in your own prejudices?...


So... To clear one small point: The OJ Simpson example was used just to highlight how USA courts appear to be more greatly influenced by the flamboyance of the lawyers and the protagonists than by the actual merits of the case...

Another single example being touted as a universal truth. Not one word on the specific case.

The prosecution rests.
