Comment A feature that all android phones are missing... (Score 1) 118

Let me block a number with wildcards


Those three will block a bulk of worthless calls to my phone. I already have an app that kind of works but I would rather hav ethe phone do a connect and then instant hangup, or better yet play the universal "disconnect" tones that phone companies use for a phone number that is not in service to knock my number off a computer list.

There is no reason at all for the base OS telephone functionality to have built in blocking with wildcard support.

You guys need to advertise that far and wide. The reputation was earned from the scam tactics of the previous owners, and nobody will come back to see if it has changed if you dont make it a core part of your advertising.

The new sourceforge, under new management and it is back to the pure form with nothing shady going on.

Comment Already a Failure.... (Score 1) 183

If step one of his plan is not to fire all the idiots in charge and replace every single one with someone that has a MINIMUM 10 years experience on the ground with cybersecurity, then it's a failure.

Law enforcement people are idiots when it comes to Cyber security, you need real people that know what the hell they are doing in order to be smart enough to make decisions and direct properly.

Instead we get Executives that barely know how to lock a door properly put in charge and they make stupid decisions that are ineffective. OR worse a FBI/CIA director that can't even check email put in charge because it has the word "security" in it.

Your post is a great example of people that have no experience in driving on a road with no central marking.

Places wher there is no central line it encourages and increases driver intimidation. Just ask anyone that lives in a city where the moron in the big pickup truck drives down the center of the road refusing to get over to his side for other drivers. You assume that everyone on the road is the same, just like these "engineers" and that is a horribly flawed view. People in general are very selfish and if they can intimidate others in order to get ahead in something they absolutely will do it.

So you have the percentage of the population that sees a lack of center line as a invitation to drive down the middle of the roadway. This happens constantly in every city. It's a problem because a lot of drivers NEED that visual cue to stay on their side. Yes it's only paint, but for some reason it has a psycological effect to keep the Bruh truck and SUV drivers on their side of that line.. in EVERY instance where the line is not there they drive down the center of the roadway believing they have the full right to do so.

Comment Block all adverts... (Score 5, Insightful) 39

Use a good browser plugin or some good backend rules, but block every single advert out there. That stops the "OHHH YOU GOTTA INSTALL THIS" vector that fools clueless visitors into downloading and running the trojan.

Good people install adblocking on every single computer they touch. Bad people allow ad's from websites.

Dear web admins.... WAHH. If you cant vet and host your ads yourself to make sure they are safe, you dont DESERVE your ad's to make it through.

Linux on the surface Pro 1 or 2 makes the wifi more stable. It has been a nightmare for running windows on it because the marvell wireless chipset is a piece of crap that will lose its initial configuration the windows driver only loads it on install. the linux driver was modified to reload it on every single boot.

Blame microsoft for using the low grade dog food that is Marvell chipsets.

". One of the biggest reasons to *not* vote for Sanders is that the free health care giveaway is just going to make people more dependent on the central government"

As Opposed to the Piece of crap healthcare system designed by Mitt Romney we have now that is designed to line the pockets of Insurance companies?

"Affordable Healthcare Act" is Romneycare in every form... if it was "obamacare" I would not have to be paying $850 a month for it. Real republicans would be outraged by the shit being pulled in congress by republican leaders..
I would rather have "free healthcare" that doesn't bankrupt people and punish the middle class than having the Bullshit that the current leadership shoved down our throats.

How about restoring the 5th amendment? How about abiding by the fucking constitution and protecting it? You know real important shit that has been ignored for the past 14 years because of the boogymen of terrorism.. Instead you are all upset about something that will actually help people?

This is why I don't call myself republican anymore, people like you prefer to hate instead of doing what is right.
