...until they can post, "I replaced it with Mint Touch and never looked back."
...and the problem is multiplied like by a bazillion. Linux is a perfect solution except for all those kids games like Freddy Fish and when they get older, Call of Duty etc. I learned to fear my children much more than the People's Republic of Crafty Hackers. After awhile you pretty much get resigned to it and end up teaching them how to do the internets the right way. And you'll still have to re-image every so often.
On the other side of an office door, I heard the worst noise I've ever heard from spinning drives and in my panic, didn't even see the "do not disturb" sign. Turns out it wasn't spinning drives I was hearing. The lactating woman on the other side of the door milking herself with a noisy pump nearly threw the infernal machine at me. Some things are not meant to be seen.
When I realized they took away my minimize button I damn sure needed some free beer
A movie about an evil data center housed in a thermonuclear bunker attacking the internet in revenge for a slight? Yeah, I would probably watch that movie. Especially if they called in The Joes. And Scarlett Johansson.
GovCheese writes "Canonical, the software company that manages and funds Ubuntu, announced that the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will base their national reference architecture for standard operating systems on Ubuntu, and they will call it Kylin. Arguably China is the largest desktop market and the announcement has important implications. Shuttleworth's phrasing of, “The release of Ubuntu Kylin brings the Chinese open source community into the global Ubuntu community,” will irk many who already feel Shuttleworth controversial, but the partnership further cements Ubuntu as an open-source influencer. This is a win for Ubuntu. Is it a win for the open-source community?"

That Canonical's citing of Wayland's limitations were mostly refuted speaks to the larger issue of Canonical just not speaking to the non-Canonical dev community. Or at least this is the perception. Now that Caonical has influence, the non-Canonical devs perceive more and more that Shuttlecock is effectively developing a closed system that abandons the cooperative consensus that has driven community progress in the past. And when their Contributor License Agreement provides for non-free copyright, if Canonical chooses, with contributions toCanonical code, the fear is heightened. Of course the lens/privacy issue confirmed that fear. Basically Canonical is seen as more and more as throwing its corporate weight in ways that aren't pretty. It may or may not be good for linux going mainstream, but it's not pretty.
"One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, lovingly, and with a willingness to accept the penalty," is what MLK said from a Birmingham jail. It's a sentiment I wish would enter the conversation more often when we talk about how to do civil disobedience the right way.
Subway Corporate announces that their foot-long measurements were unfortunately based on accepted assumptions of larger protons.
Weatherhead received the most severe sentence due to his cybernym, Nerdo, indicating a special danger to himself, his fellows and to society.
If only our local programmer had used his free time at work to mine for gold with which to pay the Chinese contractors. It would be an inverse of something, but I'm not sure what.
Remember it wasn't a hack. After 9/11, the federal community was told to "share data" and remove the old stovepipes and State did just that - they State shared their cable data with DOD. DOD's controls regarding access were the issue and enabled Manning to do what he did. The focus now is creating a more roles based access policy without inhibiting sharing. It's not as easy as one might think.
As a recruiter for IT (in the past) I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Coast Guard had an exceptionally rigorous and broad training schedule for their IT ratings. In fact, they were "perfect" candidates for jobs that needed broad experience and the ability to work independently. I imagine the need to work afloat away from shore assistance had something to do with it. From what I could tell CG pay was pretty crappy but if you're looking for on the job IT training that has meaning outside the sevice environment, I'd go with the CG - they really impressed me.
Why do you ask? Did you ask to pay with your BitCoins?
When my trademark of "Taliban" and "Al Queda" is final, I think our action figures might have to see each other in court.
