I just want to vomit. Seriously, it's a nation with a tiny population and a gigantic amount of crude petroleum wealth. Stop comparing them to us. That's like saying "Why can't we get the same efficiency that the Prius has in my diesel?"? It is a car analogy.
You mention a "free market". What is a "free market" and where exactly does one exist? I ask because there certainly isn't one in America, unless you're redefining the term.
Algorithm: A process that is too complicated to explain
I used to do a lot of web development and e-mail security, I do not trust the internet. Good on anyone who doesn't.
yes, but as far as I know, plastic adheres to other plastic and they have a tendency to form giant plastic islands. Isn't it easier just to grab a bunch of it for some weird purposes?
10 bucks says it's being mined and recycled.

All the other DEs for Linux seem to be focused on being cool or hip or trendy, but XFCE is just stable, normal, and mature software.
I know PHP is sorta sucky as a language, but it's getting a lot better. I think there are a lot more jobs out there for a PHP dev than there are for a
It's good to see that I think "redirection" is a dick move. Seriously, I fucking hate that. When someone is at work and HAS to use IE, or if someone just doesn't feel like upgrading, or is running a computer that can't run modern browsers, asking them to upgrade is okay, but telling them that this site isn't accessible from their browser is just straight up pissy.
First off, I think personally that macs look stupid, but that's beside the point. A week ago I downloaded iTunes for the hell of it, was turned off by the advertisement all over the goddamn place, and uninstalled it. Since then, Apple hasn't shut the fuck up.
