But.. although it is a pain, but Microsoft's EOL was well-known many years in advance. People are moaning about the dropping of support, but it has been around for 12 years. For a migration path Windows 2012 R2 will be supported until 2023, Windows 2008 R2 until 2020
But about once a year or so, there is a vulnerability in Windows that is exploitable over the network remotely without authentication, the sort of thing that Conficker used to spread on (i.e. MS08-067). Wormable vulnerabilities are the highest risk, and the time between the flaw being announced and an exploit being created can just be a matter of days.
So, eventually those Windows 2003 boxes are going to get pwned. It might be weeks or years after 2003 goes EOL, but eventually it will happen.
It's far more important to have a different password on each site.. or at least a different password on each site you care about. For some sites is really doesn't matter if it gets hacked or not. The Gawker breach a few years back for example.. who would really give a stuff about having their Gawker password compromised.
So, it doesn't really matter on a lot of these sites if your password is 123456 because everything of value is protected by something better. Isn't it?
Although also Tizen = liMo + MeeGo because Bada was rolled into Tizen later
And MeeGo = Maemo + Mobilin (Nokia and Intel respectively).
So, ultimately Tizen = LiMo + Maemo + Moblin + Bada.
So I can power the sensors for my smart home that doesn't need switches, by the pressure of my finger on a switch? I'll take a dozen!
...find fields of gold?
Imagine a Beowulf cluster of Slashdotters rushing to post that this is lame and/or they did it 20 years ago.
It did cross my mind when there was shepherd's pie on the menu last week...By the time I got there, though, they'd run out of shepherds.

My office building is next to the pathology department, and I can't go to lunch without seeing a hearse loading or unloading.
Yeah, I remember that one. The petrol in station was way the hell out in the middle of nowhere (for the UK, anyway), and was already on the expensive side as a result. The owner said that he wasn't profiteering, rather it was about conserving what little they had. Until they could get another delivery, he wanted to ensure that anyone who wasn't desperate didn't stop there, and anyone who was only bought enough to get them to civilisation.
Made sense to me. Didn't make sense to the Daily Mail, of course.
Seriously, I'm getting tired of the endless stream of apps.
There's a nap for that.

Incidentally, I have type 2 diabetes and my body/mass index is exactly where it should be, I'm not overweight and never have been. It doesn't just affect big people.
