Fake Name... Most emails I receive from such sites start with "Hello Gofuckyourself!" etc... if you want to be creative you can tailor the message to be as entertaining as you'd like. As an added benefit, if you give a different name at each site, when you get spam, you can know who sold your private data.
ok, but I don't even know you... you did mention candy right?
You are absolutely right. The only yardstick worth measuring with is the "are you happy with what you do".
Where did you get that hippie bullshit? It's a job, if you were happy doing it they wouldn't pay you. I can code all day at home... or install a toilet (I, in fact, did bother last weekend ironically) I don't need my job to fulfill me, I can do the same work without others involved. This kind of thinking is what gets people trapped in Jobs or "Careers" where they think they can't leave or shouldn't leave. Fuck that, you should go wherever pays the most or you have the most potential to get paid more. No, you shouldn't take a job in an abusive environment. If the people there are jerks or the processes setup crush your soul, move on. But otherwise, if you can tolerate it for 8hrs and it pays the most, take it. Make your money, stick it into a broad index fund (S&P or whatever) and retire early. Retirement is happiness... plan for it.
Not everyone has the talent or desire for college, and I think we as a society ought to recognize that.
You presume that college requires talent and desire and plumbing does not. Having done both, and having worked with people that have gone through one or the other, if I needed a complex task done and was give the option of choosing a plumber or a "college graduate" I'd pick the plumber every time. College means you're good at taking tests. That's it. You might be good at other things but really, there's no way to tell based on your degree. You don't get to be a plumber until you do an apprenticeship and someone personally certifies that you're not an idiot. If colleges had such things maybe my building wouldn't have MBA's floating in and out like god damned dust mites all day.
Also, plumbers get paid a lot more than most college graduates.
This is exactly why we have a constitution. The fear of the framers was that a "passing majority" could remove our freedoms/rights out of fear or anger.
Every body has mentel week spots? Your a dandy to think that. Most of us has no such weekness and as such you should shut you're pie whole. philistine!
Fines and seizures should go directly into prevention programs. As crime increases so do the programs we know work.
We do it all the time. It seems to be a normal course of business. Also, never sign the vendors contract. you wright your own and THEY sign.
I'm fairly sure the actual military application for this will be something to do with drones. We're currenly using tank-killing missles against individual targets, and taking out dozens of bystanders in the process sometimes. Now imagine then getting hit by 3 50 caliber rounds instead. You still might have collateral damage but it would be a lot less than the missile.
yea, but there's just as much crap closed source products as well. The only difference is you can see the garbage in an open source product. My employer has gone from being very annoyed with having to deal with open source licenses and trying to get the whole idea of "it's free, we can't negotiate the license, there's no support contract" though their approvals process... to now just having a check box for which GPL version it is and an automatic approval process. It's great now. Granted we're limited in the scope of what we build with a GPL product. If we're building something that hundreds of people will eventually depend on and we have no way to back out... then that project is going to get a lot of scrutiny. The one good thing about closed source vendors is you can sue them if shit hits the fan.
Specifically the Gates foundation is working on eradicating polio at the moment, he just put $50 million in the pot and the taliban have finally given health workers paperwork to let them pursue their goal. He said on NPR the other day that his next stop after polio would be Malaria. You can say what you want about his Microsoft days, but given what he's doing now he's a great guy in my book.
Given that our current understanding is that the universe has no end, is infinite, then the number of any type of planet you could imagine would be infinite.
It's fucking terrible software. Clearly written by someone that has no idea how Windows works. When you plug in the apple device (iPhone, iPod) windows trys to read the drive on the device. Unfortunately Apples DRM is basically to encrypt the entire drive. So windows wants to format it. To prevent windows trying to do this constantly (and if it's a family member you have to because they will eventually click yes and fuck the device until you restore it) you need to disable windows ability to check the drive. This has the unintended consequence of making it not read any other device either. So now when you plug in a camera or USB stick, it doesn't open the device or the dialog that simplifies migrating the date into your computer.
If that weren't bad enough, you can't view the files on the device without iTunes. You cannot copy over MP3s like you can with any other device on he market. They must be packaged up, encrypted and then synced to the device by iTunes. But you do not "sync" the devices. iTunes just does it for you. If you've not disabled the windows auto-detection like I mentioned above, the sync will sit for about 20min and then fail. And it will do this over and over. Once you have it and working, it will sync when you log in. But again, if you have lots of songs, it takes it 20min to do this sync. So you add 1 new song to the list that you just bought, but it needs to wait until that first sync completes, then starts over with your 1 new file. Instead of adding 1 new file to the device, iTunes instead re-encodes the encrypted file and passes the entire thing to the device. Every time you sync you are deleted the entire contents of it and re-writing. It's completely insane. I literally got a clone of my wifes $200 ipod online for $20... the only real difference was when you plugged it in, it opened like a USB stick and you dropped songs in. Done... my wife is much happier. Die iTunes, Die.
You're assuming that:
A. Our federal government isn't totally fucking retarded.
B. Our federal government follows any of their own rules/laws/policies.
Both of which have been proven about as false as possible after this past week.
I've always wondered if our government was actually bad... or just inept boobs. You know, never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence... color me surprised to find out they are both malicious AND incompetent.
Bo shit, who mixed this video? My parents have VHS tapes with better sound quality than this.
