No, because some asshole that did nothing of praise but was latched to a big "tech" biz "living the life" "doing what he loved!" is worthy of front page news unlike the common native peasant carrying his luggage on donkeys

False. We discussed the death of peasants yesterday. Today, a whole day later, we're discussing the death of a googler. You're either disingenuous, a dipshit, or both. But then, you didn't log in, so we knew that.

systemd isn't a horrible implementation, it is in fact extremely good in many areas and extremely well coded and documented, which is exactly why FreeBSD will clone that instead of SMF/Launchd or try to invent a new solution.

Regardless of what tack they do take, FreeBSD won't clone SMF or launchd because both SMF and launchd are festering pieces of shit hated by everyone familiar with them.

You obviously aren't aware of inetd or xinetd, although you probably have them running, started by your precious sysvinit.

First, most modern Linux systems come without an inetd or xinetd, because they have no services which aren't supplied by long-running daemons. Second, inetd won't listen on things it doesn't need to listen on, let alone xinetd.

"All muslim's are terrorists" ranting. That is not productive or accurate.
If you said "Hey, Islam needs to go through it's own Reformation", then the ones you deride as "SJW's" would agree with you.

There is a middle ground. That middle ground is where you claim that the majority of muslims give at least tacit approval to islamic terrorism by not opposing it. If they did oppose it, they would have had a reformation by now.

The ones that focus on Islam instead of the real reasons (extreme misogynistic traditions in many cultures)

Islam is an extremely misogynistic tradition. That is the real reason they can't progress their cultures. You can see this at work in every Islamic state. Their culture progresses more slowly, because they've got rules to make that happen. No different from the Amish, except there's enough Muslims to be a problem, and the Amish are grossly outnumbered.

Jews? It's really ludicrous to even bring up the Jews. Jews don't exist. Numerically, that is

That's a ridiculous thing to say. Sure, they very much don't exist in some places, but they are extremely unevenly distributed due to some deliberate and deft political decisions on the part of the UK. They created the nation of Israel and one of the most complicated regions in the world got even more complicated — to the benefit of everyone but the residents of the region where the Jews were installed. And people are still lauding them for their benevolence, which is the most hilarious part.

Tell you what though, go hang out with the Palestinians and share with them your idea that Jews don't exist. You'd better move quickly though, if you want to find any. Those nonexistent Jews are working on making that impossible.

This is not to single out the Jews for bad treatment, just to point out that they are sufficiently numerous to commit atrocities. You know, kind of like Moses' slaughter of all the first-born sons... atrocities are kind of what they do, according to their own alleged history.

For all its faults, the Catholic church had a good idea, that just letting people read the Bible themselves and interpret it their own way would lead to all kinds of bad things, so they tried to keep people from doing that

Wait, you don't really believe that shit, do you? You're crazier than the catholics if you do. Keeping people from information is always done to handicap them. True leaders create more leaders. The Catholics only want more followers.

Really intelligent people - those who are smart over the whole range, not just the logic puzzle part, are normally a delight to talk with.

I haven't met anyone smart over the whole range, yet, especially not on slashdot. Ain't nobody perfect. Slashdot is more than usually full of precious snowflakes, for example

What is the solution,

Popcorn.

As in "Oh, Yellowstone is erupting. I'll get some popcorn to watch until all the news broadcasters are dead. Then get on with my life."

A Yellowstone supervolcano would be devastating for the United States and most of Canada. At home, we might even get some ash fall (but we get that from Iceland already). Wouldn't be good for crops for the next couple of years, but we could probably use a 50% population drop. It'll be back in less than a century. Fuck up comms ofr a couple of years too, but the world will go on.

It destroyed my daughter's machine when I got her an iMP3 player one Xmas and she tried to install iTunes as instructed. Obviously she hadn't taken advice to back up her school work to the file server, so that was my weekend fucked.

Never considered an Apple product since, and only touched them on occasions (to move them out of the way).

BASIC is the Computer Science equivalent of `Scientific Creationism'.
