What are you talking about? Or was that supposed to be a funny statement?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I tried to give it time. I've used it daily for over a year. Have lost the days work several times with that crap-documented piece of shit.
A whole year with Linux, and I had it near mastered. A year with git, and it still sucks. Everything's a manual pain in the ass.
Linus: I ever meet you, I'm going to kiss you for the gift of Linux, then I'm gonna punch you in the mouth for all the time I've wasted on your shitty git thing.
I have no mod points today, but I do beg others to change the mod to something besides off topic. It seems on topic to me, if a bit of a connected tangent.
Strangely, in my little world, I'm seeing a surprising uptake in WIndows Phones lately. Never thought I'd see it coming. It seems people who have been happy with Android are wanting a little more, and are horribly confused by the iPhone's single button interface, and see that Windows Phone 8.1 is easier to figure out than the latest/greatest version of Android.
Just my little ecosystem, correlation does not equal causation, but I'm finding it fascinating. Microsoft might still have some life in it. (Helps that Cricket is now giving away a couple different free Windows phones)
Decades ago, the great prophet Dave Mustaine predicted this: Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away.
Since this is related to personal health issues, could they possibly be in violation of HIPPA privacy requirements?
You sound short
Doesn't cure all the ways they try to track you, but definitely puts a major dent in their efforts:
You are a true nimrod
You sound very closed minded. You confuse "not coding to your exact personal style" with "not a good coder". There's too much of that mentality lately, so I probably wouldn't choose to work for you anyway.
Perhaps we are entering another species failure mode that we will have to solve for. Computers and the internet are great gifts to humanity, but it seems lately to have taken a bad turn. Instead of uplifting the human race, it's starting to look more like a trap.
I've spent my whole life involved with computers and networking. Now at times I wonder if I will eventually regret my contributions to building this better mouse trap.
I personally find that the risk of a dark totalitarian period that lasts for hundreds or thousands of years to be more threatening than any terrorist threat these dark systems purport to protect us from.
Humanity needs to figure out how we want to use these new tools. All this surveillance mode machinery is not good. It just takes one evil dictator to get control of this to trap us in ten thousand years of darkness.
It's a sad fearful reality we are marching towards these days.
In other words, you are just an arrogant bastard with no good answer.
But why you all mad about it?
Aspect oriented? Oh yay, what have the hipster programmers reinvented this time? Yawn...
No arrow keys, no side numeric keypad? Not interested.
