Can they print a car body as quickly as the company did in the article? Have they?

If not, then that's the point.
If they have, then well the story sucks as much as everyone says it does.

Step back from the myopic meaningless look at the details, and see how the small dots form the larger picture.

No one said you couldn't. But no one has previous printed such a large piece, so precise, and so fast. Its an engineering milestone, not the discovery of radioactivity.

If todays geeks were alive to see the first model t the'd be bitching about how much better other cars were, and how it was nothing new. The new-ness is how it was made and how cheaply it was made.

I apologize, if it wasn't obvious that my post was in jest, a mild amusement over the psychological and physical addiction to caffeine.

Coffee tastes good, and its a morning ritual. I could just as easily drink tea, or yoga, or bobsled. Coffee seems to be more readily available and socially acceptable at work .

And with in that clock app, I should be able to choose the back ground to be generated by the app of my choosing.

So maybe my twitter feed changes every 10 s or so, maybe texts pop up in the back ground for a sec or two givng me the oppretunity to look at them and full, and send back a cave drawing indicating where the buffalo are.

I really don't understand people's hang up with the fee. Certs are cheap as hell. I understand they don't really do that much to verify any one's identity, but its so freaking cheap.

How much abuse is there with fake certificates being issued? I've only heard about a couple of cases. Its better than nothing, and certainly worth the small amount of money.

“All major browsers will alert users of a site using an expired certificate, and of the 107k affected, only 30k were not expired, and so would no longer be trusted by Mozilla as a result of their recent change,”

So not 107K, only 30k. And that's not a real issue. The browsers are correct, the connection isn't secure at 1024. People can complain as much as they want, trust is not something that is eternally granted without condition.

Exactly. SystemD is more than just init, but not all of it is in PID 1. The whole desktop thing is just crazy. Its pretty clear thats as accurate as crazy tea partiers who think Obama is a Muslim. No rigor, no research, no thought from those people.

Now there may be some very legitimate complains about systemd. However, they get drowned out by the BS. It would also help if someone who doesn't like SystemD to actually work on an alternative Services management system that solved some of the same problems that systemD does.

Ah, the old, If this secret would be revlealed then the populace would rise up, idea.

Of course most people won't care. I don't. I know what they are doing and why. I wouldn't do things exactly as they are, but I'm not that upset over what they are doing to activley try and change anything.
