How its search engine set the bar, and how its free email was a gift to many many people. And you say...non-sequitur in this case. My critical storage needs!!!

I would lose $50,000 if I sold my house due to the state of the market.

I do't understand this. If you buy your house at 400K, and the market goes down a bit in your area then it is now worth 350. But the house your were going to buy has gone down by a similar proportion to. The housing market only matters if you have two houses or if you are changing housing markets.

The person you responded to said two things which distracted you. The core problem is harassment. Saying "Fat people shouldn't be fat" is a general statement. Saying, "this bitch <a href=...> is ugly", is harassment.

PS Of all the places on the internet you use "stealing", /. is pretty sensitized to understand the difference between stealing and copyright infringement.

I'm guessing they are referring unauthorized Easter eggs?

Since it was my understanding that the original Easter eggs used purposefully to sidestep the code registration process. Since software patents only required the first X number of lines of code to be submitted...

I doubt that. Easter eggs have existed long before software patents which didn't exist in bulk until 1994.

It is, People take shittons more photos now than they used to. The reasons are obvious. Moden technology has enabled cheap photography- where it wasn't too long ago that you had to bring around extra equipment, rolls of film, then get them developed, or even just the fact that SD cards were limiting. Now I can take more photos than I Have time to review- but that is the problem. People are spending more time taking pictures and less time actually experiencing life because of the status, The Facebook status. People aren't making memory books, they are trying to show their friends they are cool and hip and whatever.

Feel disillusioned? I've got some great new illusions, right here!
