I read that as "Spocks-as-a-Service". That'd be a waay cooler market.
Nvidia (no fucking way)
If you're enough of a dumbass to ignore the right solution (nVidia stuff *works*, binary blob or not, as opposed to ATI's, also binary-blob, braindead crap), you deserve to fail. Every media PC I've built has been nVidia; no problems on the graphics side.
You mean we're supposed to use a fork??
The movie was an atrocity.
The book series was *ok*. The first was was quite good, the second one was alright, and faced with the prospect of reading several more books in the series, I gave up and read the Wikipedia summary of the series. I don't feel that I missed out on anything.
What did the PfP program do that was so bad to mp3.com? Honestly curious.
So, off goes linux, on goes FreeBSD.
+1 Funny! Spit my coffee all over the keyboard!
Opera also came with a super awesome ad banner that took up the top 15% or so of your screen. Luckily, the other browsers neglected to steal that feature.
To be fair, the stupid ad bar was removed, but a lot of people were permanently dissuaded from using Opera because of it.
Portal 2 had an option for this for those that really want to try that out
This always happens to me when I'm typing on a phone -- the autocorrect will correct away properly spelled but obscure words into pretty much randomness.
But it's still quite funny
If this is upheld and catches on, it could have pretty horrid implications world-wide, especially with how willing people are to litigate against companies (such as Google) that are actually based in a different country but have presense in the litigator's country by virtue of internet access....
I've always used AOL mail-floppies (with some tape for writability!) or floppies that came with drivers for electronics, after I no longer needed the drivers.
Having a weak password is more like having a dinky combination lock on your front door, not like leaving it open. If someone comes up to your house and cracks your $2.98 Walmart combo lock, they're still robbing you.
Also, how can you call someone who's ID is well over 600,000 lower than yours a junior? It defies all reason! By common sense, DerekLyons is 3 times your age.
Unless I totally misunderstood your post, Fedora Core *is* a free distro.... If I totally misunderstood your post, it's *still* a free distro, but then that information is irrelevant.
It's in part that exact attitude that allowed somewhere between 3 and 60 million (citation: Wikipedia article for "Joseph Stalin") people to die under the Soviet regime. How exactly do you expect an unarmed, suppressed peoples to take over an armed, trained, and extremely well-funded government? Sure, it happens sometimes, but rarely does it happen without external support or out-of-the-ordinary circumstances (say, like the bad government being based halfway around the world in the case of the US revolution, not to mention the French support).
From personal experience, the people in those oppressive regimes oftentimes root for the enemy. At least, I know this was the case in the Soviet Union and is the case in Iran.
So it's quite easy to say "It's not our culture, why do we have the right to fault them for silencing and killing their citizens," but in the end that's just a really lame way to avoid the reality: you're sitting by and doing nothing while people are being oppressed and killed. It doesn't necessarily make you evil, as there's nothing that necessarily obligates you to care, but it does make you less good than the people that are at least trying to do something about it. And in this case, in some tiny little way, Google is at least trying to do something.
