Disco was "temporarily popular" in the mainstream from 73 to 79. So again methinks you don't understand what fad means.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Disco and bell-bottoms were both around for more than 10 years. They are all still a widely-used examples of fads. Methinks you don't understand what fad means.
I wasn't talking about what 'the tools do, under the hood' (dammit, typical windows speak), my point was that your operating system is a black box. dammit there isn't even source code available.
Darwin source code no longer exists? This link no longer works? In an education environment you can also get access to the NT source code. Either way, it's all irrelevant to most programmers even those on Linux.
IOW, windows experts know how to use windows, unix experts know how unix work (and therefore, due to the openness and clarity, a lot more about how their computers work).
So OS X is no longer Unix? No longer bundles all the Unix utilities? No longer uses POSIX?
He was likely joking, brah.
Then he simply needs to change his number. As I said, why would any overseas company care about the FCC's list?
I'm already on the Do No Call Registry and have filed a complaint with the FTC.
Why would an overseas debt collector care about the Do Not Call list that is only enforceable within the US?
Aside from ditching my landline, changing my number, and/or blowing a whistle into the receiver anytime I actually pick up, are there any real solutions out there? Has anybody had luck with a blacklisting device?"
Can you not simply block international calls? Do you routinely get calls from people overseas that it would matter?
On what planet does 180 Euro translate into 15 USD?
That is assuming that he is even telling the truth now after spending a long time lying so that he could get access to the documents.
So no different to how the NSA uses the same tactic to get their people into companies to act as spies and to insert backdoors into said company's software and systems?
I am actually.
Oh, you're that guy always manning the glory hole, right?
Years ago I had a clear political opinion. I was a civil-rights activist. I appreciated freedom and anything limiting freedom was a problem to me. Freedom of speech was one of the most important rights for me. I thought that democracy has to be able to survive radical or insulting opinions. In a democracy any opinion should have a right even if it’s against democracy. I had been a member of the lawsuit against data preservation in Germany. I supported the German Pirate Party during the last election campaign because of a new censorship law. That I became a KDE developer is clearly linked to the fact that it is a free software community.
But over the last years my opinion changed. Nowadays I think that not every opinion needs to be tolerated. I find it completely acceptable to censor certain comments and encourage others to censor, too. What was able to change my opinion in such a radical way? After all I still consider civil rights as extremely important. The answer is simple: Fanboys and trolls.

Fags love butts and dicks.
Today, I thought I would try Gnome 3.8 on Fedora 18. My session was short-lived. After I went through making the extension additions and tested the Desktop, I was left feeling disappointed. I said to myself, this is not classic in the remotest sense of the word.
So, while Gnome may have you believe they are listening to users, I will tell you that they have moved backwards with 3.x so much that I think the whole project should be scrubbed and rewritten starting at 2.34.
That's how badly I feel about what has happened. Sorry but I have to truthful. It is kludgy and awful.

Either way Google doesn't have the nearly $400 billion needed to buy the MPAA companies anyway. It's also highly doubtful the shareholders of every company would even agree to the buyout in the first place even if they did.
Disney has a market cap of $104 billion. NBC Universal is owned by Comcast which is worth $109 billion. Your figures are off by quite a bit.
