I've just not found that to be the case since the M days. And that's with usually 3-4 windows with lots of tabs open. I actually like and use both Chrome and Firefox. I think to say one is oh so much better than the other just doesn't fly from what I've seen and what my users have said. They both work very well.
" I never want to be stuck in a job where my supervisor is an opinionated moron again."
Unfortunately you've just described at least 50% of the jobs out there so chances are you'll run into another moron boss at a future job.
Glad to hear you found something else that pays the bills and you enjoy. Nothing worse in life then working at a job you hate.
Don't run normal users under the Administrator account and use Chrome. Also there are a ton of resources on hardening windows out there. If you are familiar enough to know how to install and configure Linux and even if you aren't, then something like this should be trivial http://krebsonsecurity.com/201...
I'm hardly saying Windows is somehow better or more secure then Linux, just that with a little planning you can avoid having your computer get ruined every time your kids use it.
The private sector has just a many fuck ups. If I had a nickel for every half baked project I've come across in in the "private" sector.... Bottom line is people cut corners in IT just like they do in every other occupation in life. I not defending this botched rollout, just saying that kind of thing happens all the time. It just tends to be more noticeable when the details of a failed project can't be hidden behind closed doors like it so happens when the failures are with private companies.
"their culture is structured in such a way that death of one member is nothing - even a massacre of millions to the Jews is nothing - as long as their culture gets to live on."
That is by far the most bizarre thing I've ever read on Slashdot. A) you make "them" sound 100% like the Borg B) if your theory was correct it would be applicable to any religious group not just Jews. And finally C) go ahead and next time you talk to a Jew ask them if the massacre of millions is considered "nothing" as long as some structure/Jewish traditions live on and I think you'll find a ever so slightly different take on how resistant Jews are to genocide.
Let's get one thing straight.
There are a fuck-ton of conservatives in Congress. There are not a fuck-ton of liberals in Congress.
There may be a bunch of Democrats in Congress, but they sure as heck aren't all Liberal. This is vs the Republican party where they are all Conservative.
Why does this offend you so much? Most people consider AR-15s Assault rifles right or wrong. I suppose we should be glad he didn't have the full auto military version but I really don't get your outrage.
Blaming the news for reporting that he used an Assault rifle when most people likely agree the AR-15 falls within that common definition makes no sense. It's frankly unbelievable that you are more bothered out the term "Assault rifle" being mentioned vs the actual shooting. I'm sure the family of the murdered will be comforted by the fact it wasn't an "Assault" rifle and "only" an AR-15 that killed him.
First for people who hate it, maybe make the classic view more like the current one with light text on a dark background? Personally I'd go same font you have but use something to box it in from the rest of the body of the article.
Second maybe adjust the "Tri-View" triple headline photo layout thing? Maybe it's just those particular photos, but imho it looks a bit too cluttered and the photos seem to run into each other vs cleanly flowing.
My 2 cents.
Microsoft, in late 2013 just came out with 2 tablets that don't offer LTE? Oh right next year they say. Smart business move.
The people with the money to burn on these devices and a wireless plan to go along with them just want to pay once and then have connectivity everywhere without thinking. Definitely a short-sighted move IMHO.
What else can you say? What can you say about a company that charges $20 for a fucking usb charging cable and then blocks everyone else from making legally compatible cheaper fucking charger cables. Oh right it's for safety... . So now if I upgrade to IOS 7 I have to spend $60 on new cables? This is douchebaggery on a whole other level.
They really should wear parachutes by default. It's just takes one tiny slip and....
Haven't tried it but, http://tanguy.ortolo.eu/blog/article93/usb-udf
They mention XP might be read only if you go UDF on a device.
I know, still one can dream...
Yes I saw that, and although it shouldn't by now it really pisses me off.
"Massive distributed Linux cluster"
"System can scale Linearly - simply add a new server to the cluster"
How about we get Linus to bury some code in there so we can spy on the NSA? See how they like it?
Yes, don't settle. Be the pushy guy who everyone just goes along with because it's just not worth it to fight you. Ever wonder why complete idiots are managers? Sometimes it's dumb luck, sometimes it's because you are good at what you do, but more than not someone above notices that a person is vocal with a capital V and doesn't compromise aka is a leader.
Being the nice guy or "doing the right thing" doesn't get you anywhere in business. When it comes down to it you can either A) be really really freaking good at what you do and have the balls to negotiate for your services without backing down or B) be that vocal pushy guy who gets places due to shear willpower. If you think that just doing your job well day after day and year after year while being a good coworker will move you ahead you are sorely mistaken.
Common sense probably, I know. But that's definitely not what they teach you before you get sent out into the world.
