The kernel is much more complex than an init system
For now, it is. Just give the Systemd team a little more time, and that may change.
I'm done risking life and limb going into walmart at frickin 4am after turkey day.
If you wait that long, all the good deals will be gone.
Walmart will be open at 6 PM on Thanksgiving Day....and so will a lot of other stores.
They're just not mentioning that Thursday is Thanksgiving Day.
They're not using intelligence to stop these people. The question is it incompetence, malfeasance, apathy, or some combination of all three?
Add in a side of blind naked ambition for power, and the answer is yes.
1- Showroom; being as I'm a larger individual, I prefer to actually sit in the car I'm interested in to verify that I can drive it comfortably, that I'm happy with the visibility out the mirrors and rear window, etc.
2- Warranty Repair; if something goes wrong or there's a recall, I want to be able to take it to a manufacturer approved facility. Those are most often at dealerships.
I don't like to haggle, and I don't like to waste time. Ideally, I would like for purchasing a car to take only slightly more time than it takes to buy a suit and have it tailored.
That is an extremely short-sighted viewpoint. Money isn't everything.
I'm afraid that statement doesn't make much sense to a great number of Americans these days.
Anything over 90 days is long-term, and money is how we keep score...the one with the most wins.
What i care about is: (1) what is your track record, (2) what are your financials, and (3) what is your insurance.
Why should you care about those things? If the plane crashes or the baggage crew loses your luggage, you can give them a 1-star rating...that'll teach them.
...my first-hand experience tells me that they beat taxis all to hell.
That comment also appears to say that you don't care about anything but your immediate needs.
It's the typical "I want what I want, when I want it, fuck everyone else and damn the consequences" point of view.
Want something from Wall Mart? It will be waiting for the Uber driver to deliver it to your door.
Want it delivered in one piece? That will be an extra charge.
Because I couldn't vote for more than one option, my combo vote is:
- Big fine for VW from US and EU regulators
- Wider investigation into other makers' practices
- Repeal of the DMCA
- Mandatory open source code for all car firmware
Floggings are optional, with the execs getting more than the coders.
Riggght. Replace a regulated marketplace with a single middleman playing piece workers against each other is not a race to the bottom.
I'm not even going to discuss this with you, you're an idiot.
Arguing with "anarcho-capitalists" like this is useless.
They only care about one thing; getting what they want as cheaply as possible, screw everyone else and damn the consequences.
We need voting machines with open source hardware, open source software...
Paper and pen are about as open as hardware gets.
Mark a paper ballot, put it in the box. Take the paper out of the box and count the ballots.
Simple, easy to understand, and no messy passwords to remember.
It even works during a power outage!
Many of the drivers for Uber are in the business of converting equity in their cars into payments from Uber. That is not necessarily a profitable exchange and many drivers don't realize that until their car breaks down. Uber drivers are not paid for the time they spend sitting in their car waiting for the next gig. And if you include that time, they are paid below minimum wage in many cases.
You say that with the expectation that the "Libertarian/Anarcho-Capitalists" who love Uber care about such things.
They only care about getting what they want as cheaply as possible, screw everyone else and damn the consequences.
But they're on the INTERNET, so they're the same thing and your normal laws don't apply.
That ought to be enough for anyone.....
Diplomacy is the art of saying "nice doggy" until you can find a rock.
