Apologies to the editors of slashdot, it's not you but the guy in charge we want i.e. "Big Dick". Its out and swinging around and it's here to prove it can out piss anyone or the group. So far Big is keeping his head down, not very manly to start a shitstorm and not take public credit. Well Dick, your name will eventually become known and your reputation will suffer more for this delay. Grow a pair! (some apologies if its really the "Big Clit")

We have tar, feathers, pitchforks and torches, getting the picture?

The advertisers win by not needing the extra bandwidth necessary to serve up ads to people that wouldn't click on them anyways.

There is no one that doesn't need their ads, they just don't know it. Its religious nutball logic at its best. Your own ads are always yummy delicious double good. Reality is ignored so that the (greedy prick) doesn't see his real image in the mirror. Every decision makers worst downfall is believing their own press releases. Advertisers have downed their own koolaid and the brain damage is usually permanent.

Guerrilla marketing slogans like Windows 8 it's really a Lock down System not an Operating System, or if you loved AOL your really gonna like Windows 8. Might get the message across but I doubt it.

I'm just tired of Redmond fucking up the desktop. The tweens can have Windows 8 and beyond, I think the grownups need to look elsewhere. We're not the demographic Microsoft is looking for.

Some ot them are not real. I sometimes start a virtual machine with Vnc wide open on 5800 and use a DOD emblem for wallpaper.

I've found hackers trying ports 5802 and when I tracert them I get a weird 2900ms delay leaving the last US hop at San Diego headed to the Orient.

With electronic records, almost all of the hospitals are linked here, and a simple search turns up everything.

After being in the same local hospital system for twenty years I can say, not really. A doctor might keep everything but the hospitals do not. They remember your insurance data and where to bill/reach you, and even a ten year old defunct phone number. But some tests from 5 or 6 six ago not so much, its about tracking the money.

They can pull most of the data from my glucose meter already, no wait they all speak different electronic dialects. Glucose meter mfgs have tried similar approaches, but they charge for the software/service and data cables are proprietary. I can't afford diabetes meds like insulin already, supporting more medicine for profit is not on my to do list.

Best healthcare in the world my ass. You want the data? Pay Me

The powerful, rich, amoral, yes they are, and their currently in charge. Oh! you think because they hold up a banner with your beliefs on it they're "good." Nobody should have these powers without oversight. Maybe we should torture some more people, after all only the righteous should have rights!
