IANAL, but it seems like judge-shopping at the moment. Lots of low level judges are closing off lawsuits for reasons that may or not be valid. Get one that lets a suit go through and the dam may break.

Clarice, Yes. The defendant is no longer just the State of Georgia, it's the counties too. Since the issue isn't who owns the machines, but who controls them the counties get swept up in the suit. And raising the issue of trade secrets is interesting. The state would have no interest in trade secrets. Is there a Dominion lawyer in the mix too?

From that Dropbox Plaintiffs’ counsel responded that Plaintiffs could amend their complaint to add the elections officials in Cobb, Gwinnett, and Cherokee Counties, thus obviating the issue of whether the proper officials had been named as Defendants to this case. Gotcha.

It's on a, I think 48-hour loop. The errors usually arise very quickly, usually within an hour or two. It's like, here's what I did for you when a trade is confirmed. That's not what I asked you for. OK, let's go to the tape. My department did market data and telcom. One of the telcom people would have to go to the recorders, find the conversation and play it back with our trader and his counter-party listening in. Both sides of the trade have made written order tickets on the verbal order that they can refer to in resolving the issue. If they can't, it goes up one level on both sides. Since these are long-standing trading relationships they are always resolved quickly. You don't take this kind of stuff to court. We admit a mistake, they admit a mistake or there is a compromise. The mistake is debited or credited to an error account and traded away. You can make or lose money on a mistake. One can imagine the horse-trading. You made a freaking mistake you idiot. Oh, I made money on it? Let me re-check my paperwork.

That will do it. The state doesn't control the Dominion voting system and the counties do. Hereby ordered that the counties are now, in effect, parties to the suit and will comply until told otherwise. Is this a lawsuit or a card game? I raise a technicality. Looks at cards. I'll see your technicality and raise a technicality.

Just in case anyone wants to know more about Tandem Computer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tandem_Computers Also, in the financial industry dedicated, or "ring-down" lines are common. A trader will sit at his desk watching his computer and when he/she wants to speak to a trader at a client he can just push a button on his phone "turret" and be instantly connected. You don't have to dial a number. Pushing the button causes the "turret" at the other end to light a button. When that button is depressed the call is completed. So if you have 24 big clients your "turret" will have 24 buttons on it. If you want to talk to somebody else you will have to dial the number. Additionally, because errors can be made in transmitting orders, and because it may involve a lot of money, the calls are automatically recorded from the handset in case of a dispute. And if you really want to impress someone, most traders don't know this, the recorder is always on. It records whatever it hears all day long, even if the phone isn't in use.

That's hard to know. Speed of communication might be important for one part of a networked computer program, but it would be prudent to have a back-up computer on another electrical grid in, or out, of country. I don't know how they do it nowadays, but before the year 2000 Tandem Computer systems were in widespread use on Wall Street. It was one computer system with two brains and data duplicated in real-time. If one brain failed the system automatically flopped over to the other arain and kept on going.

Well if the 3 car convoy is correct than it wasn't a lone shooter. So the issue becomes how many shooters. And they are getting their best information, I assume, from any survivors. And the question being posed to them is, "How could you let this happen?" "But, boss, there were thousands, I mean hundreds of them." After that it's the old Get Smart routine, "Would you believe..."

My experience taught me all about the advantage of co-location of servers at financial markets. Exchanges rented space at their hubs so you could get the latency as close to zero as possible. If you do that your trades hit the market faster than a computer hundreds or thousands of miles away.l I presume the same idea would work with other applications. If high-speed networking was important to your need, co-locating a server at a communications hub would be ideal. The basic idea is that if a computer functions on its own you don't need it at your site where you can control it, so you put it as near to your desired end point or network entryway for the fastest possible action. You would re-program it remotely from your site if it needs new programming. If security was a concern I would order up a dedicated telcom line. A dedicated line costs more than a regular line but permanently connects two telephone nodes.

narciso, There's was a movie about two assassins who were after the same target and the plot involved a remote-control machine gun. The real question is why have such a weapon when you have a team of 52?

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/11/police-chief-escapes-from-washington-d-c.php Peter Newsham is Washington D.C.’s police chief. He has been with the D.C. police force for 31 years. Newsham will step down from his job, which pays him nearly $300,000, right after Joe Biden is inaugurated. He will become the police chief of Prince William County, Virginia, a D.C. exurb, earning a salary of a little more than $200,000. I'm guessing that this is something similar to what I mentioned to Gentlejim a month ago. Newsham will retire from the DC police force and collect his pension. At the same time he will collect a smaller salary from another jurisdiction. He just gave himself a raise in pay by working in a friendlier environment.

Oops, the game two weeks ago. The Giants had a bye last week. And I should further admit that I was ecstatic in my boredom watching Dallas lose to the WFT on Thanksgiving.

I'm coming out of the closet. I watched the NY Giants game last week. I know, I know, but I was bored and weak. I'll probably watch again. Yeah, I still hate the NFL, but the Giants playing the Bengals with their QB out for the season? Hell, it could be an historic game. I've lost track during my boycott, yet I do think another win by the Giants would equal, or better, what they accomplished in total in the prior two seasons. And they would be tied for first place in a truly pathetic NFL division.

https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2020/11/26/939365087/government-model-suggests-u-s-covid-19-cases-could-be-approaching-100-million The underlying study: https://academic.oup.com/cid/advance-article/doi/10.1093/cid/ciaa1780/6000389 This is only mildly interesting I think. I am certain that we don't have a true idea of how many people have already been infected. I guess it makes some sense to try to apply a guessed at multiplier to a presumed number and hope that the proxy and the multiplier are semi-accurate. With the sensitivity of the tests in doubt maybe it's even a useful proxy. Leave all the false positives in the reported Covid test regime as reported as your proxy to account for some of the unreported real cases. I'm not impressed that historically high rates of testing are finding historically high rates of infection.
