Let's just turn over all the cell towers to law enforcement if they don't need warrants to intercept cell communications. At least then we'll know for certain that they are spying on us everywhere, all the time.
> It seems that neither side of the left-right dichotomy wants to remember Atlas Shrugged accurately.
Atlas Shrugged was a badly written, juvenile paean to selfishness as virtue. It was a tribute to the idea that might makes right and wealth as a moral virtue. To make matters worse, its characters were wooden and uninspired, and the dialogue was positively petrified.
To quote John Rogers: "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."
People who say "I could care less" are wrong and no amount of rationalization changes that.
I'm sure I could care less about this argument, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how.
We need a return to the fairness doctrine. If a corporation wants to use public infrastructure to broadcast to the public, it should be required to also broadcast information that is in the public's best interest. (FWIW, I also think that cable networks, wireless networks, etc. should be classified as public infrastructure and companies that provide or use that infrastructure should be regulated as public utilities.)
What's the difference?
Or are they thinking they will go it alone and continue to update their Linux distro/kernel just because it is open source? Do they really think they are qualified to do that? Or is the hope that they can spend money to keep the OS in long-term-support status?
That is not as hard as it sounds. There's already tons of mission critical in-house applications in banks, some of them probably quite a lot more complex than an OS with some drivers and an application on top of it...
Also, in the event their distro of choice goes EOL, they can swap it for a different one with relatively few problems.
Where can I download the eggloo server? I am intrigued.
Unless you're hosting simple static web pages IIS is better in almost every way, easier to manage, easier to configure, etc...
Just curious, how much do you make up there in Redmond?
Now THAT'S unbelievable.
I was saying that society should be more accepting of gay people in general, not that they should be accepted more than other groups.
Go back to stormfront. You've shown your colors, and I'm done with you.
We all like praise, but a hike in our pay is the best kind of ways.
