Comment: They forget where most of their money comes from (Score 2) 183

The average newspaper "subscription fee" barely covers the cost of paper and distribution. Newspapers make their real money selling ads. Now those same local newspapers to me want me to buy a subscription to their online versions that cost nothing in paper and almost nothing to distribute? Their online money comes from me clicking through relevant advertisements I find while reading. Make me pay for the _privilege_ to read your news and I'll go elsewhere. Getting listed in an aggregator like drives people to news sites so they can sell ads. Wonder how long it'll take before the news sites in Spain see their traffic dwindle to the point they're loosing appreciable revenue.

Comment: XP instead of Win7 (Score 1) 405

While reading the above during a lull in work. I'm struck by the fact that this computer sitting in front of me has a Win7Pro sticker on it, but is running XP Pro. Seems to support most of the comments about being easier to predictably manage many installs by our IT dept.

Thrashing is just virtual crashing.
