Can't decide... ultra-dry sarcasm or Aspergers level-10 pedantry that's actually not even factually accurate in the context of the article.
" I have yet to have one such buffer overflow bug in my code."
Can't decide: Satirical troll post or somebody that's actually that egomaniacal (and in need of a pink slip if his employer is rational).
What a great moral to the story! "Quit price-shopping, assholes - Pay full retail, or we... will... fuck you!"
Glad to see people feel just peach about that.
Ubisoft just taught another generation of paying customers that piracy provides a superior product, regardless of price.
Congrats, Ubi! We haven't had a good DRM fuckup like this in a while - Without all your hard work, people might eventually forget how much it (and you) sucks. Keep up the good work!
If only I could think of a car analogy to help me decide!
The denialists will still come up with an alternate interpretation of cherry-picked data from some crackpot blog, to prove you wrong.
if the same data has been used to claim a warming trend and the same data is used to say otherwise I'd call that invalid data.
The same data has been used to claim men landed on the moon, and that the moon landing was a hoax. Therefore all data related to the moon landing should then be ignored. As it's proven flawed on both counts.
earth is primarily a self regulating eco-system leading to stability
Gaia is living, breathing, self stabilizing organism. Gaia actively maintains optimum conditions for live to thrive. If the sun fluctuates hotter, Gaia will keep us cool. If the sun fluctuates cooler, Gaia will keep us warm. We have released two quadrillion pounds (2,000,000,000,000,000) of CO2 into the atmosphere and the laws of physics say that will trap heat.... and Gaia will.... umm I dunno... but Gaia will do it's super-smart-Gaia-thing to to actively counter it and keep us in a loving protective embrace of shielded stability. If we have a nuclear war, Gaia will cleanse the environment and protect us from that nasty radiation-stuff. Gaia loves all life, gaia loves us and protects us. Gaia loves broadway shows and long walks on the beach. Gaia has profiles on eHarmony.com and JDate.com.
Kirk violates the prime directive again, resulting in yet another five-minute demotion and a random crewmember reassigned to a garbage scow for the Ganymede outpost.
Suddenly an alien probe starts microwaving Earth's oceans. To save Earth, Starfleet instantly promotes Kirk to double-plus-admiral and gives him an experimental portable time travel module, which he uses to take the enterprise back to 1980s Earth.
Once there, he must find and kill a 10 year old Benedict Cumberbatch before he invents the plague that wiped out the whales.
In the second to last scene, wacky hijinks ensue as we learn that Uhura secretly hid a chihuahua in her purse before returning to the future, which due to tachyon flux has evolved into a catch-phrase spewing mascot with the power to float just out of reach.
Finally, Kirk makes a speech (possibly as a voiceover) intended to beat some cheesy moral principle about the benefits of communism into the audience.
Aside from TFA's exceedingly ambiguous wording, you have to admit it leads to quite a few questions.
For example, Windows occasionally shits the bed (I know, I know, call me a hater), sometimes even because of their own updates. If I need to reinstall the OS after a year because Microsoft pushed out a bad update, will I then need to buy a new copy just to get back to what I had for free the previous day? That seems to leave an awfully lot of room for intentional "accidents".
This doesn't "raise significant privacy concerns", it sends a great big middle finger to the American public from its own elected officials. I don't care about the "potential" for misuse - I care that someone even considered the possibility of using healthcare.gov to siphon off PII.
Uncle Sam needs to retire.
"D offers compilers for all three platforms (Windows, Mac and Linux) as well as FreeBSD."
"There's a D package registry that currently lists over 400 third-party packages."
That pretty much sums it up.
/ All three platforms!
Mwa. Ha. HaHa!
Funny though, my cell phone doesn't work inside the house anymore. Damned AT&T and their crappy network!
