So why can't Android just use fucking Samba?!
No, it's not the same story. The story now is about what Sourceforge did after that (i.e., locking the GIMP-for-Windows developer out of his account -- despite the fact that he had not "abandoned" it as Sourceforge claimed -- and distributing the crapware-bundled installer anyway).
Stories about that have been getting submitted over and over again since at least yesterday. Dice (which owns both Sourceforge and Slashdot) is suppressing them.
The real shock here is all that prime real estate has been just thrown away when it could have been used to build houses to sell to suckers who then sue the airport for being loud and ruining their enjoyment of their home.
The parent post should not be off-topic. We don't have a choice except to talk about this on unrelated threads, precisely because Dice is suppressing stories about it!
While it may give grammar nazis fits, a slightly non-standard use of commas could eliminate the ambiguity in the original headline:
Billboard, Advertising Banned Products In Russia, Hides If It Recognizes Cops
And that was sworn in the trial testimony? Or did they say that everywhere except where they had to swear that was the truth?
SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.

don't have a magical fix. My latest pet theory is that, at a Federal level, there should be a specified number of politicians. Rather than state-by-state, gerrymandered-district-by-gerrymandered-district, shit should be direct. Is there 3% of the US population who are pot-smoking tree-humping eco-dweebs? Then 3% of the politicians should be from the Nature Molestin' Party. Sure, we wouldn't have the 'hope and change' of meaningless party swaps over individual seats. We might get locked into some terrible shit if the majority of the country are, in fact, clueless assholes. But it'd be better representation.
A much "simpler" change (in terms of concept, not ease of execution) would be to go re-learn the concept of Federalism and take a bunch of power away from the Federal government and give it to state and local ones. The less the Federal government has responsibility over, the less harm unaccountable Congresscritters can do.
Hey, at least I, for one, had learned my lesson by 2012.
Nah, I'm not nearly rad enough to drive an AMC Pacer. My car is just a nice, low-miles Miata.
Also, these days, Vanilla Ice is a general contractor / house-flipper. Not a bad gig, to be honest -- once I'm making enough money I'm maxing my tax-deferred investments, I indeed might try acting like him.
You poor, naive fool! A Charter merger with Time Warner would inevitably degrade Charter's customer service to Time Warner's level, not the other way around.
My 25-year-old Mazda* has a tape deck, and I'm perfectly happy with that. (Okay, I do have a minor quibble that there's no line-in port, but that's no big deal. At least it doesn't have a CD player instead; if that were the case then I'd actually have to get an aftermarket stereo.)
(*Don't knock it; it's very much on the "classic sports car" end of the spectrum, not the "old junky econobox" end.)
See it's not a conspiracy involving the "taxi lobby", in fact it's to protect us from them.
Let's be honest here: there's no reason why it can't be a little from column A and a little from column B.
As to comedians being better at the news... no. Comedians are as good at science as they are at reporting the news. They talk about what they think is funny and what will get the crowd on their side.
In medieval Europe, it was only the court jester who could, without [much] fear, speak uncomfortable truths to the king.
You've sadly fallen into the trap of thinking the daily show is an actual news program.
You misunderstand me: I'm well aware that it's not. The problem is that the "real" news programs are much, much worse!
