That's a good rant - not sure what it had to do with my comment or the question I was replying to. I even quoted it.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
(you are torrenting and NOT running a vpn? really? why?)
Because there's nothing wrong with seeding a Linux ISO torrent?
I *just* updated and it's pestering me to reboot again. Mostly libkrb stuff.
Just because you ignore it doesn't mean it's not asking you to reboot.
Ubuntu pesters me nearly daily to reboot....
This is just me probably - but WTF is with languages making semicolons optional? Require them or don't allow them. Making them optional is a pain in the ass for somebody who is used to adding them since it will cause me to sometimes use them and sometimes not. I *hate* having this inconsistency in my code...
I've never quite understood the hate for the semicolon - but I type it so reflexively now that maybe I don't realize how difficult it is for newbs?
'When you want to listen to Nas's Illmatic you don't think "I want to fire up Grooveshark so I can listen to Illmatic." You just think "I really want to listen to the one of the greatest rap albums of all time right now."'
Not me. I do think "Should I fire-up Subsonic and pre-load a bunch of music for later off-line use or stream now from Pandora?" Apps give not only content but specific functionality for their use-cases.
Maybe I'm showing my age - but I prefer my apps to provide specific functionality rather than these sort of "mashups" where we just put a bunch of crap in front of the user and hope they find what they were trying to do.
Fox News is doing ISIS' work for them.
That would seem to make sense regardless of whether Fox News is getting any monetary reward right? And I can be said to be working "for somebody" without being paid by them if I labor on their behalf. And I could say that somebody I trick into doing my work is "working for me."
I don't even think this is an archaic usage. Seems pretty common to me.
