Yep, skype is perfectly good at:
- * Keeping records of everyone you talk to
- * Keeping records of all your conversations
- * Playing at security while exposing everything you do (your encryption is only between you and the server)
- * Being a flaky piece of crap that has lock up issues, and requires far too invasive an install when all it is is a network accessing application.
I've actually done this using my real name and a variation of it. My real name didn't get an interview, the fake "English" sounding one did. I didn't go, but man it was depressing.
Well, what that proves is that it isn't about race, but name bias. I'll bet something like Bjork ranks low as well.
It's more like 2 decades since ssh first hit the internet. And I came here to retract the other day's comment that MS still didn't support the industry standard, well, will soon support the standard...
I agree with the AC however, cygwin is a pain, enough so that I switched to Linux and macs to get real shell support. Granted, since I stopped running any windows at all more than 5 years ago, I can't state that cygwin still sucks, as I haven't seen it in that time.
100% wrong. The music industry is there to market the music. From Taylor Swift down to those "indie bands" that you guys like to listen to. You wouldn't have heard about them without the music industry marketing machine. You didn't just "discover" that "indie band". Someone was out there marketing them.
And that is a large part of the problem. The "music industry" has a lock on all marketing avenues that matter, if you don't sign with the gatekeeper, you will 99.999% of the time fail. Even if you discover an indie band that you like, if they don't sign, they'll most likely fail.
