  • Hard News: Public Address Word of the…, in reply to Tristan,

    Trivia: The HTML error 501 ("Not Implemented: The server does not support the functionality required to fulfill the request. This is the appropriate response when the server does not recognize the request method and is not capable of supporting it for any resource.") is also what you get when you ask Australia to respect human rights.

  • Legal Beagle: The Greg King Memorial…, in reply to chris,

    Chris - I'm not aware of any third strike convictions, though I had the idea there were people facing it mentioned the other day.

    When you think about it, you have to serve two (hopefully) reasonably serious sentences before getting a third strike.

  • Legal Beagle: The Greg King Memorial…,

    I imagine natural variation might be high in these kind of samples but it is interesting; we are at the kind of time scale I gather is considered sensible. Also there may be some variation in time-in-prison - parole policy progressively tightening - over at least the first comaprison that'd make it harder to commit a second offence in the timeframe. Probably not enough to account for those numbers anyway.

    Of course the actual counter is whether some other intervention (perhaps effectively prevented by the mindset that gives us three strikes) would work better for the whole population.

    Anyway, I haven't actually read the post in detail so I stop typing now.

    It is difficult to see a distinction that could clearly distinguish a death resulting from someone purposefully stepping in front of a train as self-inflicted, but allowing...

    Not completely sure: there's no human agency whatsoever that would stop a moving train in that kind of timeframe - this is quite distinct from having a high degree of confidence about what another person will do. But I'm getting to agree it carries enough similarity that it should be the same category for a lot of purposes (and hence the need for reform here). And all you other examples still apply.

  • Hard News: Not yet standing upright,

    Much as I'm happy to talk about how tasteful it was - and about the use of the name - I personally reckon if the quasi-Hunderwasser was enough like the original to be a copyright breach then ever spiral and fern offer will be hearing from every IP lawyer everywhere.

  • Polity: BURGERGASM,

    Another semi-recent burger rant:

    You know who fucks up burgers more than anyone else in the world? Australians. Australia has no idea what a burger is. They put a fried egg on their burger. They put canned beetroot on it, like a wedge of it. I am not joking you. This is how they eat their burger.

    Methinks he didn't make it to NZ.

  • Legal Beagle: Cameron Slater: computer hacker?, in reply to Rich of Observationz,

    If I'm following, the owner didn't intend for it to be served publicly, but they didn't secure it. So you could just ask for files as 'a random computer on the Internet', no pretending required.

    And just a crossover with another project - making very novel cheese that is fairly clearly contaminated but might well still be edible. original
