It's interesting. I've been to many customer sites in the last few years and every one has macbooks. There was one rogue windows lenovo user. I'm sure that here are many windows users and in fact while talking to out customers they have boo koo (s) amount of windows users but it seems that always the admins/managers have macbooks. Always. again, Always. In fact, I can't even remember If I have ever seen WIndows 8.1. Maybe at a best buy?

So, lemme see if I have this right.

This is a new take on a shell.

...which is run from within my editor of choice, emacs.

...which I run in a shell.

...which I run from an xterm, which I spawn in the gui.

Or, maybe, I run it in a browser.

...which I spawn from an icon in Gnome.

I'm not seeing how this is a Good Thing.

Comment: Is this not the same as grass noise? (Score 4, Interesting) 66

I've heard reports of people laying on the ground and "hearing" meteors. What baffled scientist about this was people were hearing them realtime and not delayed due to the speed of sound. They finally realized that it was radio waves emitted by the meteors causing the grass to vibrate and they were hearing the vibrations.

Maybe I dreamed it...

Look, this is not a nerd problem. This is not a subset-of-men problem. The problem is simplified as "misogyny" and that's it.

Yes, there are misogynist nerds. But to be frank, let's call 'em what they are - misogynist. Because there are misogynist Christians, there are misogynist atheists, there are misogynist railfans, there are misogynist bus drivers, there are misogynist flautists. it does not matter what group they are part of, a misogynist is a misogynist.

I'd say "fuck them", but that would be a lowering of standards. I suggest not fucking them.
