The OS doesn't need protection if the browser is running with normal user privs. If the OS is windows it might need extra help, I wouldn't know, but linux does not and I have no interest in googles feeble reasons for requiring root privs. A user app that requires root privs is not going on my systems. Period.

You should follow your own advice. Most brown dwarves are glowing away nicely in infrared. If there were triillions of them they'd be lighting up the sky in that band. They arn't, so unless something has cooled them all down to absolute zero (yeah, right), they don't exist. Back to school for you.

"from Cover Oregon and the governor for their failures to manage a complex IT project."

Err, excuse me - if Oracle are the contractor its up to THEM to manage the fecking project. Why the hell should the governor be hands on with this? Do they think he's also down at every roadworks checking the spades?

Usually when you hire a big company like Oracle you give them the requirements, pay them money and they're supposed to deliver the goods, so Oracle whining that they apparently weren't given good enough management is pathetic.

I wonder what are the odds they used some cheap indian labour who can just about switch on a computer much less deliver a working program. Sorry if some people find that racist, but indian coders in my experience are universally bloody useless.

Its nothing to do with identity, its simply because they can't afford to run them.

yeah yeah blah blah. There's something that already lets you do that - its called public transport.

Thats not a fucking loophole - a program doesn't accidentaly download and store phone numbers , it has to be programmed to do it - thats deliberate data stealing. Now we get the usual meaningless corporate humble apology routine which they hope will placate everyone until next time they get caught. Pathetic.

Err , how exactly do they plan on getting to those speeds? Sure , you could get to those speeds in a dive but to do a dive you've got to get up that high in the first place which requires already going at those speeds. Catch 22. And the air currents sure as hell won't be strong enough to do it so unless they plan on having an SR-71 tow them up there I don't see this happening.

It was the same for everyone in their 20s. What do you expect , a $100K pay packet the minute you leave university? I'm in my 40s now but I spent most of my 20s working in dead end IT jobs and saving up until I could put down a deposit for a mortgage.

Seems all the millenial generation does is whinge about how tough there life is. Get over yourselves FFS!

What a pathetic argument. You might as well say that only people who work in child abuse should find it distasteful. Get back under your bridge you pathetic troll.
