  • On the wireless routers I’m familiar with, there is an admin page that lists the MAC addresses of devices that are connected. Take this with a grain of salt: a malicious user could easily change the MAC address (to either look like one of your devices, or so that it appears to be a completely different device each time he connects).

  • Since the author doesn’t explain what they mean by a rights-based ethics, it’s a little hard to tell. But rights are often understood as only “negative rights,” what you call “rights to be left alone in doing certain acts.” Ever since Isaiah Berlin’s “Two Concepts of Liberty,” academic political philosophers frequently associate “positive rights” with “positive liberty,” and are at least hesitant to see entitlements (say, to a minimum income or health care) in terms of rights. For example, in John Rawls’ A Theory of Justice, redistribution is justified by the difference principle rather than notions of liberty or rights. Some libertarian philosophers argue explicitly that rights must only be understood as negative rights.

    By contrast, public discourse about rights often includes both positive and negative rights. For example, right now proponents of universal public health care in the US often frame their argument in terms of a right to health care.

    Since the author is an academic philosopher, it’s probably safe to assume that they’re assuming that rights are only negative rights. “Positive rights” would be understood as duties; so members of my community have a duty to provide me with enough food for me to survive, but this isn’t a (negative) right to food.

  • Maximum principal stress theory ( Rankine’s theory): This theory states that failure occurs at a point in member where the maximum principal or normal stress in a bi-axial system reaches the maximum strength in a simple tension test.

  • There are two formats for initializers in C++ as shown in Example 1. Example 1(a) uses the traditional C notation, while Example 1(b) uses constructor notation. Many programmers do not know about the notation in Example 1(b), although they should certainly know about the first one. Many old-timer C programmers who made the switch to C++ never use the second idiom, although some wise heads of C++ profess to prefer it.

  • Given a class, a super-class is the basis of the class under consideration. The given class is defined as a subset (in some respects) of the super-class. Objects of the given class potentially posses all the characteristics belonging to objects of the super-class.

  • BIOS stands for Basic Input and Output Software. The BIOS is software that controls the most fundamental operations of a computer and a BIOS is necessary in order to start a computer. Without a BIOS, a computer would not know how to communicate with its hard disk and other devices. The BIOS is stored on a ROM (Read-Only Memory) computer chip inside the computer. Many computers in the past few years use “Flash EPROM” chips, which means the BIOS chip can be reprogrammed with an updated BIOS. A BIOS may need to be updated to fix bugs, such as the year 2000 bug, or an update may be necessary in order to support new hardware protocols.
