My guess is that they have a hard time finding people who speak Arabic and support Israel as much as the US government would want them to.

Considering the failry lax criterion to label someone a terrorist, I am not surprised that a lot of their potential hires had "connections" to terrorists.

While it may not be following KDE's lead, I did find it interesting that LXDE recently decided to co-opt Qt as its development platform and partner w/ Razor-qt. Also, they will be among the first to support Wayland, and have been around longer than any of the others. Which is why they were the only choice on PC-BSD for a while, and are now the default.

There is a joke, but it's hardly funny. The joke is that the Russians are warning their people about America in the same way that America warned it's citizens about Russia in the 70's and 80's.

Or alternatively, Russians are warning their people about America in the same way that Soviets warned their people about America in the 70's and 80's. The exact same bullshit about the boogiemen over there has been flung both ways for centuries. These days we have the Internet to open our eyes, but the lies are pretty much the same as those that started the Punic wars 2200 years ago.

You correspond with some of the people I used to deal with I see.

And if it's cc'd to a whole department, that time loss and irritation multiplier gets . . . multiplied.

I don't mind those; being sent to everyone allows me to filter much more rapidly, as I can rely on someone else having read it.

And for the sake of disclosure, in case you hadn't already guessed it, the most frequent criticism of my communication style is "long-winded". Followed by "pompous jackass".

Try focusing on saying things only once rather than many times over (or only partially). Most communications benefit from not being over- or under-used.

It certainly does. But that isn't happening is it? Do US Citizens need to fear the government knocking on the door at midnight?

Courtesy of the extreme Left we are now living effectively in a police state.

Holy shit, you quit taking your meds again, didn't you? There isn't, and hasn't been an "extreme left" in this country in almost 40 years. It's that the extreme right keeps moving more extremely right that makes people who used to be described as "moderate Republicans" (like Barak Obama) look like lefties. These days, idiots like you, who use sentences like the above quoted, wouldn't have allowed Ronald Reagan to run as a Republican because he wasn't "right" enough. And somebody like an Everett Dirkson, well, "hangin' would be too good for him", right?

Apple isn't tasting their own medicine here, they're spitting it back at their users instead. They're happy to extract money from other companies with trivial patents. Pinch to zoom? Seriously? But when they're supposed to pay out under the same system they exploit, instead they're screwing their customers out of capabilities. I'd like to see a nice class action lawsuit over selling a product based on one quality of Facetime service, but now delivering another, weaker service. That's what they deserve for making their customers suffer, instead of coughing up the patent tribute they're happy to demand from other companies.

What I would like to see is a browser/scraper that sits on my own computer (not the cloud or a web server) so I can have complete control over it

This is really clever. The era of ethical computing services is yet upon its dawn. Find a way to monetize the idea and it just might make you rich. Remember, people said there was no (ethical) way to monetize search when google was getting started. They were (right) wrong!

Technically speaking, there's no reason all the end clients need to scape the web. The scraper could be completely centralized, but you'd run searches against a local database which is downloaded every couple days. All web searches could be performed locally. The NSA is making cheap storage work for them, maybe we should too :)

It is worth mentioning that this issue is exclusive to solid fuel reactors. With fluid fuel, the problematic gasses just bubble out, and require no special attention. There are no safety issues with rapidly cycling a LFTR or other molten salt reactor. In practice, they will only be limited by how fast the turbine can spin up and down, and the reaction will follow suit.
