I am building a Walnut desk for a customer and posted on a.b.p.w. two low
resolution pictures of the desk as it stands right now. I have attached a
PDF file drawn on Sketchup. Some of you have wondered about the resolution
of Sketchup. The print resolution comes out great when selecting ultra high
So far the desk is partially assembled with only 28, 8mm x 50 mm Domino's
and their friction fit. I wanted to be sure that every thing lined up
correctly before gluing the pieces together. I'll also be treating the
edges and sanding a bit before the glue up. There will also be 2 upper
shelves that will set on top of the desk. The picture of the CAD drawing
and the attached PDF file will explain it all, so to speak.
I would imagine a bunch of new free albums at your own webpage that is
free with some ISPs. Or free accounts at:
Those are just a few of the hundred or so that are out there now.
Some of them will even let you post an MP3 or short video with sound
Where there is a will, there is a way. In this case, and easy way.
LOL! Hell, Lew ... as it stands now, you're gonna have to ask a Democrat to
answer that question for you. :)
"alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking" is not going away, Verizon is just
taking it away from YOU, while impinging upon your free speech by sucking up
to a misguided politician who is simply reflecting his party's leanings by
Get used to it ...
Easy there big fella.
As usual in todays modern business environment, it is the various
ISP's lawyers who are in control.
It is the ISP's way of avoiding litigation rather than any peverted
form of censorship.
Lived in the corporate environment controlled by the legal department,
for too many years, not to recognize it.
As an example, had a company policy that required that any contact
with a competitor had to be documented.
Since I was in field sales, it was impossible not to come in contact
with a competitor.
My file was full of letters addressed to management that basically
took the following form:
=============================================================On <date>, met <competitor name> in a public restroom, located
No business was discussed.
Kept the lawyers happy and documented you were doing something, so it
One of the problems the ISPs face is called "Common Carrier" status. This
means they are held not liable for information transmitted across their
network, just as UPS is not responsible for the illegal drugs and guns they
unknowingly ship. The problem comes when the ISPs start censoring the
contents of newsgroups. At this point they have direct (and implied)
knowledge of the contents of the newsgroups and the traffic on their
networks, and can be held liable for these contents. The lose the Common
Carrier protected status. They could have done the right thing and kicked
the users of their networks off when they got the complaints, but instead
took the easy way out by killing the entire newsgroups.
Thanks ... I'm very much aware of ALL the various issues involved. It is the
actions of an "elected" government official that I find particularly
loathsome, ill informed, and worthy of the stupidity evinced by the culture
we live in.
We're toast ...
Exactly the same as the Mayor of Toronto, who has managed to convince his
council compadres to totally ban all licensed guns, manufacture of them and
all shooting ranges within the Toronto city limits. The end result being
that his ban will have absolutely no effect or deterrent on those people
using guns to commit crimes within the city limits.
His message to one local Olympic shooter and one local Paralympics shooter:
"Go find some other place to practice."
Yup, initially I voted for the guy and my only comment there is that
absolute power corrupts absolutely and that I feel like a fool now.
NY State is in the "Law" business, not the "Technology" business.
The ISP's attempted to ignore the law and NY State determined it was
time to do the job they were hired to do, enforce the law.
Absolutely no censorship involved.
The ISP's made a business decision to withdraw services from the
market in order to comply with the law.
If the market chooses to penalize the ISPs for their business
decision, that is quite another matter.
More shallow thinking ... _responsible_ citizens/taxpayers would
expect/insist that regulators have an indepth understanding of what they
attempt to regulate.
LOL ... since you seem perfectly OK with NY telling _you_ what you can do,
you're certainly getting you deserve.
Horseshit ... the bottom line is that "alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking",
along with 100 thousand other innocuous groups, is now "illegal" for you.
This is NO different from what China is doing ... picking and choosing what
you, as a citizen, can access.
That's _is_ indeed "censorship" my friend ... the fact that you're willing
to make excuses for it is appalling.
What makes you think NY State doesn't understand the problem?
NY State isn't telling anyone, especially me, what to do.
They simply made it plain they intended to enforce the law.
The ISPs are practicing what you call "censorship", by making the
business decision they chose.
Not "Illegal", only not provided by the ISPs, they are simply
Don't like it, find an alternative.
That is what the free market is all about.
