Comment Re:Christie is ideal (Score 1) 576

Sorry to break it to you, but "fox news" is not some magic word that dismisses all the crimes committed by the people you worship.

Hillary Clinton has violated the espionage act, and other statutes relating to securing public records. She has knowingly attempted to destroy evidence. She has lobbied for foreign interests in exchange for millions of dollars paid into her family slush fund. She may or may not do time for it, depending on whether the Obama regime thinks they can get away with ignoring it.

She is a crook, and that simple fact would remain, even if Fox News had never existed.

I teach computer science, and I occasionally get students asking how they could work for a living and still be able to travel, go outdoors, etc. and not be stuck in a cubicle. Do you have any advice for them, such as how to find jobs or clients to work on? How did you get where you were today?

Comment Re:Windows uses a unix file hierarchy (Score 1) 53

I never realized that Windows uses a unix-like file hierarchy.

According to the article, drive C: is actually a symbolic link to \Device\HarddiskVolume4, COM3 is \Device\Serial0 and so on.

I'm surprised, frankly. My exposure to Windows is pretty much nil (and I like it that way) but I always assumed that the the C: drive and COM: stuff was a completely different way of accessing the devices and whatnot than what Unix uses. Apparently, it's actually quite similar once you get under the hood.

Learn something new every day....

The NT object manager, doesn't that have more in common with VMS than UNIX?
Linux's sysfs is similar, in ways, but neither of these are unix-like unless... um, all hierarchies of objects are unix-like?

If you're sincerely interested in OS internals, you should expose yourself to other systems without prejudice. Otherwise, everything "tastes like chicken".

We Germans will not accept that the victims are further humiliated by the denial of the holocaust.

Speaking as one of the people that the Nazis would have killed if they'd had the chance: fuck you. You don't honor the victims of the holocaust by outlawing any kind of speech. When nazis lie about their crimes, you speak up and report the truth.

If we (the U.S.) had any sense we'd do the same thing with the KKK and symbols of the Confederacy

So, you're claiming that overruling the first amendment is a "sensible" thing to do? Maybe it's just as sensible to forcibly shut YOU up, since you're obviously hostile to our tradition of free speech, you un-American traitor. By your own "logic", you have no grounds to object.

Promising costs nothing, it's the delivering that kills you.
