    There are so many Western nations intelligence forces who would tell you plainly that had we not been active in Africa over the last forty years you might not recognize the world as we know it today.

    What has still escaped notice is a photograph of him wearing a t-shirt with the logo of the Rote Armee Fraktion, otherwise known as the Baader-Meinhof Group, a terrorist network that killed US Army personnel with bombs on their bases in Germany in the 1970s.

    Denver is useless in the Wintertime though. Also don’t like that connecting flights are usually at the opposite ends of their long long airport. Especially if you fly United. Its awful.

    I’ll route through Sky Harbor in PHX to avoid DEN.

    My guess is that this “slipped by QA” because it is intentional behavior and therefore not regarded as a defect. To test whether a WiFi network is truly active or not, the connecting device is going to have to transmit a packet.

    What is the threshold for a “keep alive” polling interval? People in dense public WiFi areas walk through a kaleidoscope of overlapping signals. Is everyone’s WiFi device supposed to send a packet storm of TCP ack/responses in an attempt to connect to a newer stronger signal every 100ms?

    I have a notebook with a netstumbler module running sometimes when I’m on the road which collects found networks into a database without discrimination. I see everyone’s devices broadcasting a network, from phones with enabled hotspots to distant laser printers in homes and businesses, RF guns at Petco, and even vehicles themselves are mobile hotspots straight off the showroom floor, like every Chevy Silverado even if the old coot driving it doesn’t even know he’s doing it. A typical cop car might be broadcasting four networks alone including the personal phone on a policeman’s duty belt.

    You can’t just have a flurry of zillions of competing connectivity requests from overly talkative devices saying “Yoo-Hoo?!” ten times a second.

    I discovered this bug months ago with the previous version of iOS when my phone always seemed to want to connect to the WiFi OBD2 scan tool dongle I have connected to my car’s on-board diagnostics port. The dongle communicates via WiFi (not Bluetooth) but doesn’t serve as an internet connected hotspot.

    Whenever I’m in my car, the iPhone automatically connects to the WiFi OBD2 scan gizmo and prevents LTE wireless internet from working unless I tell my iPhone to forget the scan tool as a network. I suppose that the iWatch3 is unable to tell itself to forget the non-internet enabled WiFi network?

    You should visit France next. Despite the notion that there are no firearms rights in Europe outside of CH, I knew that France had more liberal ideas on gun ownership than many of their neighbors.

    But nothing prepared me for seeing a pretty impressive gun store *inside* Paris itself not far from major tourist sites.

    Cork Ireland was another stop where I found a gun store I didn’t expect along with items I was sure were prohibited to the citizens there.

    I read his autobiography in high school. I picked it up from a pile of free used paperback book because of it’s provocative title, read the first chapter and didn’t put it down until I was done with it.

    This was a good and decent man who walked his talk and never made himself out to be repellant when getting his message across.

    Rest in Peace. B’’H.

    Yes, the driver was laying in wait. Premeditated murder.

    Here’s new video from the very front of the counter-protest march where nobody’s even paying attention to the Challenger as it creeps forward at parking lot speeds then guns it directly into the crowd:

    The driver now charged with murder was motoring around looking for the main crowd of protestors marching to the park and then when he found the head of their march he idled in a parking spot until he saw enough people to aim his vehicle at.

    You can now safely discount any claims in the driver’s defense that he was under attack and panicked causing him to drive into the crowd. It’s a domestic terror attack. It is amazing that dozens weren’t killed.

    You think that video shows that the man charged with murder was in his car being chased by thugs on foot and gunned his car into the crowd in an attempt to escape?

    I see people smashing his car with clubs after he crashed into the crowd right before he put his Challenger in reverse and gunned it out of there, but that’s after the fact.

    I don’t see anyone up the street in the reverse shot that was chasing him in his car causing him to panic (or whatever your suspicion is) and crash into the crowd. I think it shows he clearly attacked the head of the counter-protestor march on that narrow street then reversed and gunned it out of there in his escape.

    You should recognize that this man has been charged with second degree murder for a deliberate act. Let his lawyer claim he was under duress and in fear for his life — ultimately, a situation he travelled from out of state to put himself in as part of a violently provocative public demonstration. He’s not some innocent father of a family of tourists who unwittingly found his family van under attack by club-wielding hippies. This will hugely mitigate his chances at a successful defense, you might agree.

    He killed at least one person deliberately, sir. Just like the sniper in Texas who murdered four policemen at a BLM demonstration. Stop making excuses for him.

    Oh, I see. Well I now understand the context but don’t understand your sense of proportion.

    This began as a racist rally full of Nazis with tattoos, anti-Semitic signage, neo-Nazi guest speakers like David Duke and that other recent alt-Right idiot named Richard whateverhisnameis with the fan base of adoring mouth-breathers in Heinrich Himmler haircuts, officially recognized Kalsnmen in uniform, and neo-Fascist unstable wackjobs like the guy now charged with murder for running his vehicle into a crowd and killing at least one person.

    Your picture shows some black guy with a aerosol can who’s lit whatever fuel is coming out of it with a cigarette lighter.

    I think the media’s pictures speak for themselves. All they had to do was point a camera and snap photos. None of those photos suggest one side was more or less violent towards the other due to the many scuffles and attacks that took place throughout the day. But now someone’s killed someone. And your linked photo above doesn’t rise to that level, now does it?

    Probably because this person was photographed in the crowd earlier today wearing fascist regalia as a member of a uniformed group of like-minded people dressed the same way.

    You know, before he later crashed his vehicle into a crowd of people, was arrested, and charged with second degree murder amongst other charges.

    You need to stop going to that idiotic website full of hugely demented troglodytes.

    Couldn’t be that simple that some Nazi idiot deliberately crashed his car into a crowd of Commies, could it? Gotta be some kind of implausible false flag conspiracy theory.

    Senator: “General, in the US Army’s selection process of the XM2025 BeamCaster service weapon, did at any time the selection regimen denote trying to shoot through a layer of common attic insulation matting impregnated with dust particles of iron pyrite?”

    My bone of contention is that the US Army has for coming up on 15 years been seeking a sidearm replacement for the Beretta over the course of two hugely expensive programs for everyone involved, and they apparently ended up selecting a pistol they thought was bitchinest but discharges when dropped in a way they explicitly never tested. Oh what the hell, huh? There have only been two sidearm adoptions for the US military in 100 years and this is what happens after spending 15 years on these projects?

    The first survey program called ‘Joint Combat Pistol’ produced several manufacturers’ pistols that have since proven hugely popular to law enforcement and civilians alike. I own one of them that was adopted by the US Navy as the Mk24 Mod 0. The second program reduced the number of projected purchases from well over a half million to only 65,000 units and it brought in all kinds of wacky designs from second and third rate manufacturers. Heckler and Koch saw the low unit sales and told the US Army to go spoon a goose after blowing zillions the first time around. Glock just submitted their Model 17 and told the Army to go get sample models their damn selves at the sporting goods store and call us if you need us. It was SIG who sold the Army on the neato features they needed to have and won the competition over CZ and Taurus and a ho-hum model from S&W.

    So now we have a new 9mm pistol to replace the old 9mm pistol. But you can change the frame size on it so Bradley Manning can get a grip on it.

    I am no SIG Sauer hater at all, but I’ve not been a big fan of recent SIG handguns for other reasons long before the SIG 320 was revealed. I do think one of its features will be adopted as standard by other manufacturers (the modular fire control assembly) and when they do they’ll end up being better than SIG’s design. I personally just think this drop failure will be the first of several serious issues because I’m dubious that SIG Sauer can keep up quality control in a sustained a military-sized production run. The old SIG Sauer company just ain’t the new SIG Sauer. Just my opinion. And the old proven Sig P22x guns would have never won any of the competitions. Crazy.

    Just my opinion but I have to wonder if this adoption of the P320 will be as short-lived as the Navy Lee rifle or the 1898 Krag-Jorgensen.

    I think the US Army should be removed from selecting our military's next service rifle considering they selected the SIG P320 as the new sidearm that we now learn discharges a round when dropped in a manner untested by the selection process.
