Re: Wait, the door doesn't re-lock until it's instructed to?

Um no not at least in north America. If you pop the globe ( out side power meter) the power goes off. Also there is an outside emergency disconnect.

Re: While were at it....

No need to sue, the amount of damage a bike could cause to your car would easily be small claims court level.

Sadly you are wrong. What would amount to a $1000 repair on a standard car is enough to total a tesla with all of it's senors. Repainting a Tesla is enough to total it out . Theb there is the fact that there is only ahnd full of autobody shops that are authrized (as in tesla will sell parts to) fix teslas that drives up the cost.

Re: FBI can't unlock smartphone

"removing guns from the hands of the public wouldn't help prevent this sort of tragedy is beyond me."

And just how do you plan to do that? One the second amendment allows for gun ownership. Secondly how do you plan on removing private gun ownership.

Re: FBI can't unlock smartphone

He had a bcd discharge. had he a dishonorable discharge that alone would of bared him from owning guns. And frankly I think beating your wife and child qualifies for a dishonorable discharge.

Re: " Secondly being committed to a military nut house does not bar you from owning guns."

Airforce is different. They have always had tighter rules and regs for fitness rep and are the first to cull when they don't need man power. It was the Army And marines that were suffering shortages during the gulf war . That's why Bowe Bergdahl was accepted into the Army even though the coast guard bounced saying that he was mentally unfit for duty.

Re: FBI can't unlock smartphone

Two reason. First the Airforce failed to have his conviction into the national data base. Secondly being committed to a military nut house does not bar you from owning guns. If he had been civilly commented to a private or sate run nut house he would of been bared from having guns

If s/he is mart enough to be a hacker s/he is smart enough to do that. So either that person was targeted or for some reason a non techie got ahold of some hacking tools . Not sure which is worse

Re: Have they fixed the decades old bug in File Explorer ?

What he is talking about is some programs will auto generate an super long file name for a folder. NTFS parser can not handle it. The only thing you can do is delete it or rename it.. If try to do some thing like move it it throws up an error and says file name is a to long please rename it.
