And I thought the "Normal" definition of brinksmanship was insane...let's not just stand on the edge of the cliff, let's actually jump off and trust that our untested parachute will work.
*You* completely ignored the point he was making.
What is needed is a president who gives the impression that retaliation would be inevitable, whilst not actually retailiating if it did happen
When we're talking more than a couple nukes at a time, you can't call *any* scenario logical. And I especially wouldn't have any faith in Putin to make a choice for the human race over Russia (for whatever crazy value of "winning" we're talking about).
There's no way that Russia would pre-emptively enough warheads to destroy the planet
Not even accidentally?
Hmmm...I suppose with UEFI, POST could be different now, but I'm curious what they would do to reduce the time from 30 seconds to basically 0 even if that is the case.
POST alone takes like 30 seconds. How can you possibly be doing a cold boot if you're skipping that?
And just FYI, Windows 8.1 Pro cold boots in about 8 seconds on my laptop, coming out of hibernation takes about 5 seconds and waking from sleep is instant.
I'll believe this voodoo incantation when I actually see it. Do you have an SSD?
Making fun of HURD plumbs whole new depths of the phrase "beating a dead horse"...HURD is more like the horse that was beaten within a few inches of its life, all of its legs were nonfunctional and its skin was rotting, but it still managed to drag itself across the finish line by its teeth, a mile away and a whole year later, but all the spectators have long since left.
And has been stuck at 11.x.y.z for the 27 after that...
I guess the main question keeping me from moving to Mint right away is...does Mint MATE/Cinnamon support Emerald? I'm not really aware of other easy-to-use themers available for Linux.
How I wish I hadn't already commented on this article...
We could have simply modified X.
From what I've heard, there is nothing whatsoever "simple" about modifying X. Something about only 4 or so people on the planet understanding how the mangled internals work...
Yeah, that's a good point. I was thinking of an ideal situation that would presumably never happen.
Unfortunately playing Flash videos in VLC on stock Ubuntu installs still suffers from this from time to time. I should know; it happens to me.
yea i just serviced a windows 8 box that was infected.
I really hope you used a condom...
BlueSoleil and GlovePie? You're sure these are Windows programs?!
All the crazy names that give you no hint whatsoever what the program is for are supposed to be reserved for Linux!
