You left out a very important one - be a company that appeals to women.
Iceland has a population of 300k people - Germany has 15 cities larger than that. There's very little immigration. Most are descended from a few small groups of settlers.
Genetic diversity is a bit of a concern there.
It should be quick - they only have five products.
But, the students are not employees, and signed no waiver when they enrolled. Claiming ownership of the student's creations is rediculous.
So is spelling common words incorrectly. It's 2013 - how are you accessing the internet without having a built-in spell check?
They have no reason to hold him other than being suspected for a crime in the US. If they captured him, they'd let the world know how helpful they were being.
The problems with MySQL aren't bugs, they're decisions. Decisions that can't be reversed for the sake of backwards compatibility.
I'm sort of surprised that the $10/bottle shipping cost didn't trigger a rantfest.
Maybe if you were still running Irix on the box or using SGI-specific multimedia software, I could follow your metaphor. Running Apache & OpenBSD on the machine is more like taking the body of a '57 Chevy and replacing the interior with that of a 1992 Honda Civic and putting a trailer hitch on it.
People in this industry are pretty trusting
Have you looked at the power usage of that thing recently? It's a 15 year old system that has less processing power than my cellphone & probably draws a few hundred watts with minimal power saving features. It's probably costing you $10-15/month to run that beast - how long would it take for a modern, low-power ARM or Atom box take to pay itself off?
New? They've been pulling that shit for years.
When did you start expecting OSes to be stable, long-term investments that could be ignored and left running forever? Win 3.1 (1992)? Win95? Win98? Windows 2000/ME? Windows XP (2001)? XP SP1 (2002)? XP SP2 (2004)? Windows Vista (2006)? XP SP3 (2008)? Windows 7 (2009)?
You've done major upgrades countless times before - I remember plenty of instances where XP Service Packs broke backwards compatibility. If you've got too many things breaking, maybe it's because you've skipped over several major upgrade points already so, rather than being able to incrementally update broken shit (which, I might add, was likely shoddily done to begin with) you're forced to upgrade everything at once?
Vista and 7 can run in 32-bit mode, if you're really concerned. They also pretty amazing backwards compatibility management - have you even looked into Windows XP Mode?
As others have said, "like" is the only action on Facebook. There's no "hate" button, there's no "passively follow this page", "you have a valid argument" or "this vaguely interests me". "Like" carries a connotation, when used in day-to-day language that doesn't carry over onto Facebook .
Just the other day, a friend posted something about his father dying. Other than writing one more "sorry to hear that" response, the only option is to "like" it - that didn't mean I was happy about the news, just acknowledging that I read it & feel sympathy.
At what point would a sane person just call the cops?
