4 May Day Against DRM

Oh, I will pay for things. *If* they are mine afterwards. I will not buy 
things where someone tells me on what devices I can use it. Or not

I stopped buying CDs nearly completely the day I could not play a CD in my 
car stereo. Copy proteced CDs have *cost* the music industry in my case 
(and I am certain not just in mine) in lots of lost sales

For the same reason I will not buy a blueray player in the foreseeable 
future. It has DRM and will limit how I can play the disc I actually paid 
for.

No way

Leave it to the thieves like flatfish that the industry felt the need to 
introduce measures which ultimately inconvenience only the paying 
customers

DRM protects people from Freetards stealing their work and not paying.

It has its place if it does not overly impinge the legitimate purchaser.

In the same way I am not insulted by showing my cinema or train ticket I
am not insulted by being asked to prove I purchased SW.

Why are you? Oh. Silly me.

Look, it is Hadron the Bigot. Companies try to prevent unauthorized 
copying/playing (or stealing) media with DRM. It doesn't work very well. 
Never has.

Linux kernel 4.4, MSI GT72, Sabayon Linux
Hi, Out of curiosity, I tried Sabayon (which comes bundled with kernel 4.4) out on my laptop to see whether it resolved my networking issues. It does and I have to say that Sabayon supports my laptop beautifully.

Linux -- Back to the days of NT 4
Man, did I flounder this time around! The Subject line is a bit misleading, since it wasn't Linux per se that took me back to the days of NT 4, but a legacy, crippled, ISA Adaptec SCSI card that shipped with the Microtek ScanMaker E3 we'd bought ages ago, when I was still working with NT 4. I had installed this card/scanner on Linux before, but didn't have it running on my current workstation because the mobo has no ISA slots. Didn't really care until I had a couple of items I really wanted to scan. So I set out to install it on an old Pentium 200 box. I set the jumpers on...

Client access on windows allows use of STRPCO followed by STRPCCMD, & I imagine IBM replicated this for linux.
