Comment: Re:Linus pissed people didn't do as he wanted. (Score 1) 264

by DenaliPrime (#49111129) Attached to: Linux Kernel Switching To Linux v4.0, Coming With Many New Addons
You've obviously never read a post by Linus where he was genuinely pissed off. Reading comprehension would tell you that he was expressing mild disgust over the number of people who either failed to comprehend his instructions, or comprehended them and did it anyway.

But hey, believe what you want if it makes you happy! :)

Comment: The devolution of WoW (Score 2) 523

I was an early adopter, joining the game in the Vanilla WoW beta. I ran one of the top 5 Alliance raiding guilds on the Bronzebeard server in Vanilla (Exiled Kingdom) until politics and my burn out of having the second job of running a guild killed it. I played regularly until 2009, when I returned to school.

WoW Vanilla was awesome.
The Burning Crusade was okay.
Wrath of the Lich King was epic.
Cataclysm was the beginning of the end.
Mists of Pandaria was the core collapse of the game... I'm still trying to decide if it's a black hole or a neutron star.

Killing theorycrafting by revamping the trees, introducing Pokemon, making Pandarians as a race... It has all contributed to breaking the back of the game. I left WoW and have not been back since. I moved on to Star Wars: The Old Republic and I've not looked back.

Alibaba Says Google Threatened Acer With Banishment From Android 352

Spy Handler writes "In a Microsoft-esque move, Google threatened Acer with banishment from Android if it went ahead with its new cellphone project with Alibaba (China's version of Amazon), using an OS called Aliyun. Acer has remained silent on the issue, but Alibaba reports that they received notification from Google, stating 'if the new product launch with Aliyun went ahead, Google would terminate Android product cooperation and related technical authorization with Acer.' A possible reason for Google's upset is that the Aliyun OS, which is not Android, can run Android apps as well as its own."

Ale To the Chief: White House Releases Beer Recipe 340

wiredmikey writes "Sam Kass, White House Assistant Chef and the Senior Policy Advisor for Healthy Food Initiatives, after much buzz, today released the recipe for White House Honey Ale and White House Honey Porter, two brews made right on site at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. According to Kass, the White House Honey Brown Ale is the first alcohol brewed or distilled on the White House grounds, as far as they know. "George Washington brewed beer and distilled whiskey at Mount Vernon and Thomas Jefferson made wine but there's no evidence that any beer has been brewed in the White House. (Although we do know there was some drinking during prohibition)," Kass wrote in a blog post. The recipe can be found here along with a short video 'Inside The White House Beer Brewing' which shows the brewing in process. Your tax dollars hard at work yet again!"
