You mean cue.

You're right about the names though, what you call a thing is THE most important thing in making it successful. Using a name that is easy to find on Google doesn't matter at all.

Trying to find people to dedicate free time to a dead paradigm on the other hand, simplest thing in the world. I don't know why they can't get that right.

Instead, they're take from the bsdly.net spamtrap address list, where all listed email addresses are guaranteed to be invalid in their listed domains. There is a tiny chance that this is an elaborate prank or joke, but it's more likely that via excessive automation, the password gropers have finally Peak Stupid."

Yeah, they can, sort of. My Samsung TV can do it without any Samsung application (just general DLNA), but it sucks ass at it compared to the PS3.. and it's remote is garbage.

Besides, it's means the TV has to be connected to the network and TV network security makes Sony network security look good, and how sad is that?

That's what the TSA agent told me about 5 times while searching my carry on bag on the jet-way while other passengers struggled past and gawked at me. Also that if I didn't declare I had cash in there, they'd seize it.

Her dog looooooved my bag. Unfortunately it didn't have any money in it, just residual dog from my friend's house.

So yeah, I just hope this device is more accurate than the pups :)

You have a couple of entertaining alternatives to just "they're a dick", but it's a reach to say you're covering all cases and as such abuse is never an appropriate response.

As for the "anger towards the parents", if someone assaults me I should go and piss on their ancestor's grave? Exactly how far back do you take the parental responsibility?

"more" could easily include any number of legal remedies, like getting the cops to beat them up, assuming they're not a mentally disabled octogenarian on the loose from prison.

Would it be easier for you if you just changed the carrier from Interwebs to USPS?

Netflix sell you unlimited CD/s month, as long as you return one they'll send out another (there's some supply and sorting issues I believe but that's not the point)

USPS deliver what they're given as fast as they can, so generally you get something like a 3 day turn around on CDs.

Now USPS says "You know, you Netflix people are making more money than we thought you would, we'd like a piece of that. We can offer you a priority 3 day turn around your CDs for a small consideration, otherwise we might just experience some packet loss in the sorting room. Oh noes, your mail seems to be getting lost a lot, huh?"

Also in this analogy, USPS runs their own CD rental service...

You position holds true when dealing with a small child.

If some smears his own feces on a wall and they are:
- 2 years old; you scold them gently and clean them up first, then the wall.
- 20 years old; yeah... not so much. If a little abuse is all you get you're probably lucky.

You've asserted several times that people may not be abusive, and other people have run with some kind of silly argument that Linus isn't, but neither your assertion nor their tangent makes you right.

Yeah, I take 50+ flights a year at the moment, so I'm already being boarded first anyway. I've always got the window seat too just so I can get on early and get sorted out and not have to get up for late entries and toilet breaks, and I'm broad shouldered enough that the refreshment cart whacks me every time it goes past. Aisle means you get off 10 seconds earlier after standing in the aisle for 2-10 minutes, but at too high a cost :P

I'm happy with my luggage with or "forward" of me, but if it's as little as 2 rows behind you, you have to wait for the entire plane to disembark before people will be polite enough to let you get your bag, they're all in a mad rush to go wait at the luggage carousel. As you say, the stuff I need is with me under the seat.
