We code monkeys argue, curse, bitch and moan over our code. But it's just the code, it's not personal.

If she can't handle what equates to "rough housing", which the competitiveness and debates that ignore political correctness, nobody is going to debate a topic politely, i.e " you are wrong good sir...may I offer a gentlemanly rebuttal pip pip" then she definitely needs to 'Git' out of the mix.

It's organized chaos and from that chaos a better product forms.

He said nothing racist.

Illegal aliens, and unwanted refuges should be blocked at borders, if they still push through then shoot them.

We have a legal way to get citizenship. There's application and citizenship test. If illegals don't follow the law, then they need to be shot on sight and detour all illegals from entry.

You can get away with killing an illegal as it is, cops don't care because the illegal has no ID, no proof of ho they are o they don't exist and get incinerated at morgue and tossed in pauper grave.

Many illegals in US get shot and killed attempting to cross border, luckily y'all have the Michigan militia, minutemen of Montana and Oathkeeper militia volunteers scouting border killing illegal crossers.

You can still keep XP updated weekly just about.

You just change



and you will get latest windows updates for XP. By getting the updates the military and atm machines get :P

I have an old fileserver with 8 shared hard drives ive just been too lazy to install anything else on it, as I have 2 linux boxes and a gaming box. plus laptop/tablet.

so I just plugged all my extra hard drives into the xp and shared them all on lan. and run utorrent 2.2.1 the last version the original open source devs worked on before the company was sold. And I set it in options to run as a "web server"

Now being lazy I can lay in bed on tablet and use the internal web to download torrents into fileserver and stream movies across lan in bed

Comment People forget Apple didn't invent the term iPad (Score 1) 262

This was actually hilariously used in court in the Apple vs Samsung case.

When the iPod was first invented. Long before there was any apple phones, the only new device was their mp3 player to compete with Sandisk

MadTV made fun of the iPod ccommercial, and invented the name iPad many many years before apple created the iPad.

I buy used pc games on eBay.

Even without CD key.

Cause its dirt cheap.

Then I go to and grab the patched executable so it bypasses the need for online.

For games that require steam, you can download the nosteam dll you swap the nosteam "steam.dll" with the original and now enjoy game without needing steam.

And download another dll that redirects multiplayer so you can play online using free shards

While I use the adblock plugin on Firefox, I do have automated blocklist downloaded on my router. It's nice having ad blocking at the router, so when I'm on my tablet I don't get any ads on web or games. :-P

But apk guy cracks me up, I've seen him tagging just about every article remotely related to networking with his huge rant about hosts file for at least the last 2 years, if not longer.

It's like Slashdot's own 'phantom of the opera'
