What bullshit. That lady was high and basically doodling if your read the follow ups. It was not some high level fraud perpetrated on the masses by the Illuminati.
I live in Clackamas County. She wasn't doodling, she was tampering. On ballots where the voter had not voted for any candidate, this woman marked the ballot for the Republican candidate. She acted alone, she didn't affect the outcome of anything, and she was caught. However, she should never have had an opportunity to tamper with the ballots, so while this was not a high level fraud, there was some high level incompetence going on.
Somebody screwed up and should at a minimum be fired for allowing this to happen, but even with an incident like this, vote by mail is still completely awesome. There are enough checks in place that even when people working at the elections office try to tamper with ballots, they're still not able to affect the outcome of the election. This incident is NOT just one more example of a widespread problem; this incident is the ONLY example of a problem with the system that I've heard of (although I admit there may have been other minor incidents of which I remain blissfully ignorant). Basically, voter fraud in Oregon just doesn't happen.
"Highly skilled" does not necessarily mean "highly in demand". Given that there are highly skilled Americans that can't find work, yes I will argue they're bad for America.
This hasn't been my experience. It's hard to find qualified people - they've all got decent jobs already. It's the unskilled workers that are struggling with unemployment (and underemployment).
Didn't Apple go through this exact same issue with the iPhone app store a few years ago, and they fixed it?
That's like going to Slashdot to read the articles. Sure, you COULD, but...
Your girlfriend or wife will say no, it's how you use it, but that's only a half truth.
Someone with a smaller striatum who knows how to use it is likely going to give more pleasure than someone with a large striatum who is clueless about how the female brain works, but women prefer someone with a large striatum who knows how to use it over either.
Of course, your striatum can be too large - and despite what you see in the movies, women do not like having their hippocampus jostled by some monster brainpart.
SGI's still around, of course, they have an office within walking distance of my house. Dunno what they do these days.
The company currently calling itself "SGI" was originally called "Rackable Systems" before they bought SGI's assets in 2009.
The fact that a web browser that I use includes things that legitimize DRM is certainly not a win for me. The only possible "win" for me is when someone creates a Firefox-based web browser that doesn't include this garbage.
I have principles I am not willing to surrender. I can see that you may not have such things. Even the mere existence of DRM is a disgrace.
Except that RIGHT NOW, TODAY, Firefox supports a plug-in architecture which allows Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight to run and play DRM-encumbered content. Just like every other major browser we've been using for the last two decades. Now they want to make a better, safer, way to do it, and people are upset?
Right now no one knows the opinion of those 2307 people so it can't be reported on.
In case you've been sleeping under a rock, this is the 21st Century. Not knowing something doesn't stop the media from reporting on it.
Feel free to start such a team, and get that competing implementation going.
If you need to add exceptions to get a tool to work... the tool is wrong for the job.
Well yeah - that's why you add exceptions: to indicate that this tool shouldn't be used for that job, because it's the wrong tool for the job.
Exactly this. I feel its worth pointing out that the code was reviewed, and the reviewer missed the bug too.
steven colbert doesn't even have an 'act' without his schtick.. and with or without it, he's gonna crash and burn, conan-style, in the big chair. i give it a year, tops, before someone else is brought in and colbert is chased back to cable.
He doesn't have an act, that you've seen. Have you ever seen him out of character? The man is brilliant, and I'm excited to see what he does with the new role.
