    In a rare show of defiance, Republicans in Congress are coming close to preventing Donald Trump from being able to roll back sanctions against Russia.

    In Norway, there are no such secrets. Anyone can find out how much anyone else is paid -- and it rarely causes problems. From a report: In the past, your salary was published in a book. A list of everyone's income, assets and the tax they had paid, could be found on a shelf in the public library. These days, the information is online, just a few keystrokes away. The change happened in 2001, and it had an instant impact. "It became pure entertainment for many," says Tom Staavi, a former economics editor at the national daily, VG. "At one stage you would automatically be told what your Facebook friends had earned, simply by logging on to Facebook. It was getting ridiculous." Transparency is important, Staavi says, partly because Norwegians pay high levels of income tax -- an average of 40.2 percent compared to 33.3 percent in the UK, according to Eurostat, while the EU average is just 30.1 percent. "When you pay that much you have to know that everyone else is doing it, and you have to k...

    An anonymous reader writes: A British magazine is directing readers to copyright-infringing software, the Federation Against Copyright Theft (Fact) has said. Kodi is a free, legal media player for computers -- but software add-ons can make it possible to download pirated content.

The magazine is available at a number of retailers including WH Smith, Waterstones and Amazon. It was spotted on sale by cyber-security researcher Kevin Beaumont. It repeatedly warns readers of the dangers of accessing pirated content online, but one article lists a series of software packages alongside screenshots promoting "free TV", "popular albums" and "world sport". "Check before you stream and use them at your own risk," the guide says, before adding that readers should stay "on the right side of the law." ...

    sombragris writes: July 17 marked the 24th anniversary of Slackware Linux, the oldest GNU/Linux still in active development, being created in 1993 by Patrick Volkerding, who still serves as its BDFL. Version 14.2 was launched last year, and the development version (Slackware-current) currently offers kernel 4.9.38, gcc 7.1, glibc 2.25, mesa 17.1.5, and KDE and Xfce as official desktops, with many others available as 3rd party packages. Slackware is also among the Linux distributions which have not adopted systemd as its init system; instead, it uses a modified BSD init which is quite simple and effective. Slackware is known to be a solid, stable and fast setup, with easy defaults which is appreciated by many Linux users worldwide. Phoronix has a small writeup noting the anniversary and there's also a nice reddit thread. ...

    Reader schwit1 writes: If you're an advertiser who wants to market a product to millennials, you're going to have to make it quick. A new study by comScore revealed online ads targeted toward millennials have to be around 5 to 6 seconds to be effective, a sharp contrast from the traditional 30-second commercial seen on TV. "The length of time of an episode or a viewing period is really important and has got to be short, otherwise you just won't keep the attention of millennials," comScore CEO Gian Fulgoni told CNBC's "Squawk Alley." The format of advertising may have to be radically changed to reach millennials, he suggested. "You're going to have to make your case literally in a matter of seconds and make sure you grab somebody's attention, Fulgoni said. ...

    New submitter cornholed writes: In an update to previous posts on Slashdot, prominent Drupal and PHP Developer Larry Garfield is still defending his reputation against allegations by Drupal leadership against sexual misconduct. As previously reported by a variety of news organizations, Larry was exiled from the Drupal project for adherence to the Gor sci-fi lifestyle. In the latest round of allegations, Garfield was reportedly asked to resign because an autistic "woman who attended Drupal community events ... was allowed to contribute by him". While some have accused Dries Buytart and the Drupal Association of "Autism Shaming", the leader of the Drupal project claims "this person could be vulnerable and may have been subject to exploitation", hence raising the risk of legal damage to the Drupal project. Larry refutes these allegations, saying these claims are post-hoc and has shared police reports purporting his innocence. There is still much debate in the Drupal community around why L...

    New submitter dgatwood writes: According to an Ars Technica article, Verizon recently began experimenting with throttling of video traffic. The remarkable part of this story is not that a wireless ISP would throttle video traffic, but rather that Verizon's own Go90 video platform is also affected by the throttling. From the article, "Verizon Wireless customers this week noticed that Netflix's speed test tool appears to be capped at 10Mbps, raising fears that the carrier is throttling video streaming on its mobile network. When contacted by Ars this morning, Verizon acknowledged using a new video optimization system but said it is part of a temporary test and that it did not affect the actual quality of video. The video optimization appears to apply both to unlimited and limited mobile plans. But some YouTube users are reporting degraded video, saying that using a VPN service can bypass the Verizon throttling."If even Verizon can get on board with throttling sans paid prioritization, wh...

    An anonymous reader shares a blog post: I've got a Firefox profile with 1691 tabs. As you would expect, Firefox handled this profile quite poorly for a long time. I got used to multi-minute startup time, waiting 15-30 seconds for tabs from external apps to show up, and all manner of non-responsive behavior. And then, quite recently, everything changed. Right now, more effort is being put into making Firefox fast than I've seen since... well, since I've been working on Firefox. And I've been at Mozilla for more than a decade. Part of this effort is a project called Quantum Flow -- a bunch of engineers making changes that directly impact Firefox responsiveness. A lot of the improvement in this particular scenario is from Kevin Jones' work on bringing the overall cost of unloaded tabs as close to zero as possible. While the major work has landed, the work continues in Bug 906076. Test scenario: I took my 1691 tab browser profile, and did a wall-clock measurement of start-up time and memor...

    From a report: Senator Edward Markey this week questioned FCC boss Ajit Pai's justifications for killing popular net neutrality rules in a hearing in Washington. We've noted repeatedly that while large ISPs claim net neutrality killed broadband investment, objective analysis repeatedly finds that to be a lie. That's not just based on publicly-available SEC filings and earnings reports, but the industry's own repeated comments to investors and analysts. But that doesn't stop AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and Charter (and the ocean of politicians, think tankers, consultants and other PR vessels they employ to make this misleading argument in the media on a daily basis) from making the claim anyway. And while Pai once again this week breathlessly proclaimed that net neutrality put a damper on network investment, Markey simply wasn't having it. "Publicly traded companies are required by law to provide investors accurate financial information, including reporting any risks or financial burdens...

    Intel has jumped into the fray surrounding the Apple-Qualcomm patent spat by accusing the world's biggest maker of mobile phone chips of trying to use the courts to snuff out competition. From a report: The chip giant made the allegation late Thursday in a public statement (PDF) to US International Trade Commission. The commission had requested the statement as part of its investigation into Qualcomm's accusation that Apple's iPhones of infringe six of Qualcomm's mobile patents. Specifically, Intel said, the case is about quashing competition from Intel, which described itself as "Qualcomm's only remaining competitor" in the market for chips for cellular phones. "Qualcomm did not initiate this investigation to stop the alleged infringement of its patent rights; rather, its complaint is a transparent effort to stave off lawful competition from Qualcomm's only remaining rival," Intel said in its statement. "This twisted use of the Commission's process is just the latest in a long line of...

    Thanks, Valérie and bunny Marcel! Valérie writes, "Here is a photo of Marcel enjoying the fresh summer nights in my garden."
    Happy Bunday! Thanks, Summer and bunny Ellie!
    Thanks, Olivia and BunBun!
    Thanks, Chelsea and bunny Lola!
    Thanks, Emily and bunnies Violet, Elmer, and Otter! Emily writes, "This was how we celebrated the 4th of July, a snuggle fest! Violet is the grey lop, Elmer is the tan lop, and Otter is the little black dwarf. I have 5 bunnies, and they don't always get along, but they decided since it was a holiday, that they would try their best!"
    Thanks, Erica and bunny Elsa!

    Tycho: I have every faith that I’ve said something very much like if not identical to the last line in the strip.  I could apologize, I guess, but I’m not 100% sure it isn’t true. There is a more detailed version of this tale presented in an old post, maybe, what…  fourteen years old at this point?  I have a condition where when I remember things I also feel all the feelings in the memory.  It makes forgiving people very challenging because even if I’ve developed an antibody to, say, a Betrayal, I always feel that first when I go back.

    Tycho: I have been left completely and entirely alone, abandoned by my Mork, such that he left me with four or so .jpegs and flew away.  Mechanically assisted, obviously.  He didn’t just “throw himself at the ground and miss.” He was telling me about an Adult Summer Camp, of which there are apparently several, and like so much else that a normal person would do it turns out I don’t have the receptors for it.  So many bedrock concepts that get absorbed in an ambient want by other people, simply… inhaled somehow just accrue on the skin.  Accrue, and…...

    New Comic: Dumber Camp, Part One

    Tycho: I like all the PAX shows, but PAX South is one of the shows where people bring me beef jerky so it definitely earns a few extra points.  I eat pounds and pounds of jerky at night in bed while I watch The Town with Ben Affleck.  It’s an incredible convention, on and off the showfloor. Last year also saw the debut of Acquisitions Incorporated there, live on stage - it’s tradition, now, and I can’t wait to bring it back there.  It’s funny, there wasn’t even a “C” Team yet.  My life moves fast and is very strange.  Anyway! …...

    Tycho: Destiny 2 is - I don’t think this is a spoiler, because it’s the whole point of the game - the part where the hero drags themselves up out of the Underworld.  I suspect you won’t drag yourself up for very long; optimally, the buttons on your controller do things in a game, though there are some notable iconoclasts. I got into it so late, compared to most of the people I know; I got in when the getting was very, very good, with the House of Wolves DLC.  I made partner - whatever the Destiny equivalent is, I guess I was Raid Ready - in what felt like twenty…...

    New Comic: Gardinex

    Tycho: Having made a reality show myself, I’m aware that they don’t project an authentic truth necessarily.  You can change quite a bit about how something is perceived when you alter all the context that surrounds it, or do things in a different order.  For example: I didn’t come up with the idea that contestants in Strip Search should pin up their winning comics until, I think, the third Artist Battle.  So, we just filmed them doing that as though it had always been done.  We wove lies into a kind of textile.  Your brain just sort of fills in the mortar.…...

    Rocko's Modern Life wasn't my favorite Nicktoon. It came out in the second (or third?) wave of Nicktoons where I was just getting a bit too old and "cool" to watch (until I got older and "cooler" and started watching again). Anyway, some folks love it, so they'll be chuffed that the ol' Wallaby with the super '90s shirt is coming back for an hour special.  Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling brings back the entire cast, as you can probably tell from listening in the trailer. Evidently Rocko, Heffer and Fillburt were in space so they haven't been around since the '90s resulting in Rocko having a hard time acclimating to the modern world. So... basically the original, but with smartphones. Maybe it's just my bad memory of their voices, but everyone sounds drastically older in this trailer. I mean obviously they are, but it's a bit weird hearing it alongside animations that haven't changed.  Check out the trailer an...

    Grumpyface Studios is back with another Steven Universe video game adaptation, and even if you only have a passing familiarity with the show, I think you'll be able to appreciate Save the Light's charming aesthetic.

    You Gamers probably only know the WASD keys, but a wordsmith like me has to have full command of the whole keyboard. I got all 26 letters memorized, the space bar, the commas and apostrophes, the shifts, and sometimes even the numbers. Impressive, I'm aware. There was one time in college where I was struggling to find a summer job so I went to one of those job placement center things. Part of the process was that I had to take a typing test. Halfway through, some old lady who was taking the test next to me loudly complained to everyone that I was typing too fast and too loud for her to concentrate. Yeah, I'm that good. I think I got a job landscaping for the summer or something. Please sit down before you consider this: I have only gotten better since then.

    Eiichiro Oda's One Piece is arguably the most popular anime series in Japan, so with how much anime has garnered interest in the West it was only a matter of time before some Western company wanted to try their hands at a live-action version. The major question, however, is how exactly is this supposed to happen?  According to the Japan Times, Weekly Shonen Jump Editor-in-Chief Hiroyuki Nakano announced that Tomorrow ITV Studios with Marty Adelstein (the producer behind Prison Break, Last Man Standing, and uh, Cristela) will be handling the live-action TV series with Adelstein noting just how damn expensive a show like this will have to be.  Series creator Oda apparently is alright with the project as long as "it never lets down the fans that have been supporting the series for 20 years." But seriously, even with Oda's support, how is this going to work? One Piece is one zany piece of fic...

    Revealed a few weeks ago as the last of the initial batch of new character additions to Injustice 2, Starfire, the former Teen Titan, follows Sub-Zero and Red Hood in having an impressive reveal trailer. Along with her burning hair and green energy beams, Starfire just has quite a few interesting set-ups.  Short bolt projectiles, a slower bomb-type (which is probably going to be one of the unlockable moves), moves that knock away opponents,  and it seems like she's going to be more powerful up close with a few command grab options. On top of these moves are her fluid animations, so I'm pretty much sold.  The one hilarious thing? I was watching the live stream where Ed Boon officially laun...

    SQL injection takes place when database software can’t tell the difference between arbitrary data from the user and genuine commands from the application. When an attacker injects commands into the data they send to a database, they can take database control away from the application owner. This can lead to data corruption, leaks of confidential data, or the bypass of essential logic (e.g., authentication, authorization checks). The good news is that SQL injection is preventable using a special feature that allows database software to separate application commands from user-supplied data. Or, by preventing untrusted user data from going directly to the database....

    When you configure build agents, and especially when you configure Release Agents for VSTS, it is quite normal to have some installations where you want to use AutoLogon. This is needed whenever you want to run integration tests that need to interact with the UI. Having AutoLogon enabled avoids the need to manually log in and start the agent when the machine is rebooted, because you always have a user session opened that runs the agent. There are lots of articles like this one that explain how to configure everything, but last Saturday I had a problem, because I had a Windows Server 2016 where that technique does not work. I rebooted the machine, but the Hyper-V console showed me the login pane, and I was really puzzled....

    There are many good things to come out of doing APIs properly. Unfortunately, there are also many bad things that can come out of doing APIs badly, or with misaligned expectations. It is easy to focus on the direct benefits of doing APIs like making data resources available to partners, or maybe developing a mobile application. I prefer looking for the more indirect benefits, which are more human, more than they are ever technical. As I work with different groups on a variety of API definitions and strategies, one very significant part of the process I see, is people being forced to think outside their box. APIs are all about engaging around data, content, and algorithms on the web, with 3rd parties that operate outside your box. You are forced to look up and outward a bit. Not everyone I engage with is fully equipped to do this, for a variety of reasons, but, overall, the API process does make folks just a little more critical than they are with even their own websites....

Tsuki ga Kirei and Your Lie in April are two excellent examples of shows that tell a down to earth story beautifully without taking it to one extreme or the other....

    K anime is about fight, supernatural power, friendship, and betrayal. It has a really good story and concept, but its kinda slow pace. The battle animation is also not as bad-ass as the action anime I expected. Yes, it contains dazzling and beautiful artwork, but the execution of the story is not as good as its graphic. I found myself yawning from time to time when I watch this anime....

    This month Loot Anime are reminding us that no matter the hardships anything can be overcome when we band together and Rise Up. Championing this theme is the anime Gurren Lagann, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Knights of Sidonia, Blame! and Voltron: Legendary Defender....
