Security Essentials is worthless. It used to be decent years ago but is one of the poorer performing Antivirus products now. For Free Panda is supposed to perform well. Really anything but MSSE is a good idea, regardless of how safe you surf. Just because you only visit "safe" sites doesn't mean malware isn't being handed out via some drive by advert.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!

Regardless of the licensing, a lot of the content on the site is useful because its just unavailable otherwise.
I wonder this about Youtube. What if it was just shutdown? At this point you can laugh but it has historical value. Beyond the cat videos there are documentaries, content from laserdisc, obscure commercials, very useful user howtos and reviews etc. This list goes on and on. If all you search for on youtube is funny videos then you are missing out on a treasure trove of content that spans many decades.
At some point I think the site will have to become a public archive. Which it kind of already is, it just needs the legal status so that some greedy corporation can't just turn off the switch. Now if only we could cut down on the crap that is a result of everyone trying to monetize youtube. But I guess that's wishful thinking because without that Google might just shut down Youtube outright.
How about a $10 month unlimited Audiobook service?
Don't forget about getting people to vote against their self interests. You just shout the right keyword and watch your political base come running ignoring the fact that their being completely screwed over by the people they elected. We are all completely fucked. Well except for the rich. But that goes without saying.
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.
