who knew, Greenspan was a proponent of what is essentially "soft-slavery".
Spineless cunt, if you're going to be a cunt, be a cunt with your own name.At least be a principled cunt. Cunt.
Calling anonymous cowards names doesn't help, sadly. They're already willing to put their words under the name "coward", since they already know what they are. You think that you can hurt them more than knowing they constantly live in fear?
Perhaps to you, but they don't approach the speed and accuracy of even the cheapest gaming mouse.
That is, in fact, a lie. Granted, it's at the low end of the resolution of gaming mice, but since you can move the ball more than a mouse ball without having to move your hand, you actually end up getting more precision. The sample rate and the DPI are both fine for gaming.
Do you know how to use a mouse?
Do you know how not to be a condescending dickass? Wait, no. You don't. I must be new here. Cowards like you never know that.
You're not supposed to be moving your arm, just your fingers.
If you're not moving your arm, then you're moving your wrist. If you are moving your arm, you're moving your arm and your wrist. I don't have to move my wrist to use my trackball. If you don't know you're moving your wrist when you're moving your mouse, then you're not at all in touch with your body. It's the smallest repeated movements that do the most damage. Kind of like when you masturbate.
In other news, most of Britain wants the UK Government to be removed and replaced by people who are not asshats. Unfortunately, it turns out that nobody who is not an asshat can be persuaded to want the job.
In yet other news
You'll find that far fewer of the citizens would ever want to do anything to oppose that. It's more effective than playing whack-a-mole with an ever-growing list of terrorists.
Fair point, but why did you need that first sentence? It's not very nice to say 'you thought you were being clever' to someone.
Because they thought they were being clever, but they weren't? They should really be informed that people saw what they did there. It's for their own good. That way they'll understand the sort of responses they're getting. Or did you think nobody should ever be told what they're doing wrong so that they can be confused for the rest of their lives?
On what basis?
Cutting the size just because is not a good enough rationale.
If a department is not serving its stated function, and cannot propose a rational plan for doing so, then it should be eliminated because it's a waste of our money, and therefore our time and effort.
It's really sad to see the comments about life extension being bad or we are going to overpopulate the planet etc
If we don't embrace space travel, and we do embrace life extension, that does seem like a real concern. We're not maintaining our environment well with the population we've got now.
Yeah but in this case, the Chinese companies might not be so willing to falsify part numbers.
In China, they'll murder you just for tax evasion. Falsifying part numbers and getting caught making China look bad almost certainly qualifies even if the part wasn't involved in an international incident. If you're going to go off to break rocks or get broken up for your internal organs anyway, who cares?
For most people you just insert cable A into socket B and push play. They don't give a fuck. If their disc gets scratched up they will throw it away and buy another one or watch something else. If you just buy the overpriced shit in the store then it all works, especially if you buy all the same brand.
There are at least three numbers which are critical to the calculation of whether college is worth it or not. One is what percentage of successful people are college-educated, one is what percentage of college-educated people are successful, and the last one is what percentage of college-educated people actually applied their education to their life. I have none of these numbers, and you'd have to rely on survey responses for a study asking these questions, so it would probably be a jerkoff waste of time. But the question is much more complex than you suggest.
Oh, wait, you say that isn't an option in the cities. Well, cities, yes, well, there's your problem.
Yes, yes it is. Not in the cities, but while living in the cities, via AIWPS. The short explanation is that your shit is pumped into the bottom of ponds with a methane-capturing plastic liner protected from UV damage by virtue of being submerged. Eventually the ponds fill up and they're left to cook momentarily before being sludged out for compost. Heavy metals settle to the bottom and microbes destroy virtually all pathogens and most other contaminants.
Cities are not the problem. Where cities are located is the problem; there's no good reason for them to be in the same place as seaports any longer, for one. And what we choose to do with our technology is a massive problem as well. We have the technologies to solve the problems, but the current "solutions" to these problems are highly profitable. For a tiny slice of the population, of course. And they are maintaining the situation quite aptly.
The speed and accuracy of a trackman wheel are phenomenal. I'm at least as good with it in FPSes etc as I am with a mouse. As a bonus, I trade lots of wrist pain for a little thumb pain, which I consider to be a win. Sadly, they are made with crap omron microswitches which will fail you and it's easy for crud to get into the scrolling wheel and clog it up.
I am a gigantic mutant with big meat hands, so finding a mouse which I like is a big challenge in any case. Perhaps this is not the solution for everyone. But the resolution of these devices is very good, and really more than suitable for gaming. Just clean the hand salsa out of the rollers periodically and you'll be all right.
Linux doesn't support lowrights. Standard users or the wheel group in Unix can still access file system, threads, processes, etc.
Oh noes, they can see my pslist. The horror.
You can always wall a user off with selinux, what a PITA but it can be done.
hey, you, paid Russian web-propaganda dude! You're on the wrong thread. This is the thread for the paid pro-Nuclear web propaganda team. The Ukraine thread is about a page and a half down.
Every time I come on to one of these threads about radiation, usually dozens of very knowledgable people come on and say that this kind of radiation is less than a bannana, and therefore, safe. I can't imagine what could possibly be causing such observations of slowing decay. Maybe those scientists are part of the world coal-burning conspiracy who are trying to raise the earth's climate to make it more habitable for the aliens, and are spreading false stories to discredit that clean, clean, safe and reliable nuclear power.
