Posted a few comments on this Ask Slashdot article yesterday. Come back, and they've disappeared. They've not been deleted - I can still access them, from the recent comments area of my profile - and they've not been downmodded either. Not a Beta issue, as I'm not currently on it.
What good is it to live a long time if you can't eat what you like to eat?
The four basic food groups are good enough for me - caffeine, nicotine, bacon, and pussy. Without those, life has very little meaning.
Rinsed down with a good homebrew. Gotta get your B-complex vitamins somewhere.
Fair enough that Atkins wasn't killed by his diet, still, fact: he died young.
Seventy-two isn't young. It's rather close to the life expectancy in the US, IIRC. And more to the point: it doesn't fucking matter if he died young, considering his death had zero relation to his diet.
Which is the better battle rifle, an AK-47/74 type or an AR-15/M-16/M-4 type? Please give your criteria as well as your answer.
Bonus: favorite handgun platform/caliber that isn't a
Oh, I read it carefully enough. The goal of feminism is to provide equality to women in society, and this includes distributing the responsibility of child-rearing to both genders.
Then why do most feminist groups object to presumed shared parenting scenarios in divorce situations?
Your solution to being paid less than male colleagues is to eliminate the male colleagues?
Third wave feminism for you.
First, the essentials for me, on my iMac (many of which moved with my from PC background) :
Google Chrome - go-to web browser. (Safari just doesn't cut it, Firefox is good but doesn't work quite the way I'd like it to.)
VLC - the media player that will play anything!
F.lux - mentioned elsewhere in comments, this adjusts monitor brightness from daytime to nighttime.
Pathfinder - excellent power-user file manager for OSX.
DaisyDisk - find where all that hard disk space has gone.
CleanMyMac 2 - scrub the detritus from OSX and apps.
Torrent - for my torrenting needs.
Parallels Desktop - for when I need to run Windows software.
Mozilla Thunderbird - my mail manager of choice.
FontExplorer X Pro - organise and manage font library, root out dupes and duds.
Last.fm - because here in the UK at least, I can still listen to full tracks. Still the best way to find where to buy particular tracks.
Spotify - I still love my MP3s, but this way I can legally share the love.
Sophos Anti-Virus - because I know better than to believe the hype about Macs being less at risk.
LastPass / XMarks - recent addition, no more hassle losing passwords or bookmarks between browsers.
DesktopServer - for Wordpress site development and deployment.
Toast Titanium - still need to burn the occasional disc.
Steam - need I say more?
Pocket - where my read-later stuff goes.
Alfred - Like Spotlight, but with brains.
There are a few Windows apps that I miss, because there isn't a good Mac equivalent :
TeraCopy - Pathfinder does bulk copy operations, but doesn't support CRC checking / diff.
Everything - Spotlight is good, most of the time, but not fast. Alfred is better, but still no speed demon.
I used to use Beyond Compare for work purposes back when I was involved in USB flash device duplication - great for checking master copies prior to duplication, and double-checking selected duplicate sticks during duplication.
Along those lines, I'd also recommend TeraCopy - fast file copying with the option of CRC checking to spot any corrupted or missing files.
I must admit, I didn't buy a new version of Office for personal use for a long time (last PC version was Office 2000), and only got Office 2011 for Mac because I was found a cheap deal off eBay, plus Pages couldn't digest some of the Word documents I needed to use.
Given that there's no indication that Microsoft are going to do a new version of Office for Mac any time soon, I'm now looking into trying LibreOffice.
Worst part is that because I only occasionally need to crack open Word, Excel or Powerpoint, when I do want to do so I invariably have to wait whilst Microsoft AutoUpdate installs the latest update.
Best part, though, is that Office for Mac has an actual proper menu - I would probably go insane trying to use the fecking Ribbon!
I'll second that. Especially for big screens. (I have a 27" iMac.) Only caveat is that it's not so good if you're doing graphic work and want to be sure that your colours are correct - but then, if you're working into the evening or night I daresay you have other problems you need to deal with first.
That's exactly what he meant. I know, sarcasm can be hard to detect online.
I feel kinda bad for getting this.
I'm just going to imagine that you mean that the guys are big fat slobs with saggy manmaries, and Angelina is a fit young woman with perky breasts. Yes that's it.
That's part of it, but it was also a shitty, obnoxious 'joke' about Jolie's preventive double mastectomy.
