You're so completely full of shit. What does Bono DO with that money?

He invests it in socially responsible investments, 0promotes (spends money on) pro-social causes, gives it to charity . He does what any rational person who wants to achieve a goal in this world and has access to capital- he creates it, he invests some as principle, he uses the earnings to effect change. Rinse and repeat.

I just love conservatives who attack liberals for having *anything* to do with making money. It's a completely cynical attempt to get their opponents to divest themselves of any real power.

It's also a cynical attempt to demoralize people to whom Bono et. al. are role models- "See, they're just as greedy as the Koch brothers! People are just greed machines! Get used to it... "

Ditto the attacks on Gore and his "carbon foot print".\

The facts are, if everyone were and did as Bono and Gore do, we wouldn't have crushing poverty and war. Fact. And we wouldn't be facing extinction through environmental degradation. Fact.

So shut the fuck up you little asshole. Go read some more Ayn Rand , snort some more coke and cruise some more really vile S&M porn. Those are the points of your moral compass. That's what's *real* to your reptilian brain.

All I care about is- can I finally create a path+filename+extension location longer than 256 and still have Windows Explorer work? Or is this bug still dictating the names I can give my libraries?

It's a simple question.

I am *quite* sure the answer is no, \so what do I care about Windows 9?

Answer- I don't.

Windows 7 is still humming along, thanks.

I'll give it a go.

You people who believe you'd run a functioning society without taxes and the things it pays for are completely deluded.

In a taxless society, there would be no one to run it other than those with wisdom and experience. But they wouldn't "run" the society as we understand it today.


LoL, "Wisdom and Experience".

No, the people that will run it are those with the desire for power and the force to defeat all the others with the same idea. We have a word for this, despotism.

All the societies you quote lived as pre technology civilisations. You may notice I used the past tense, none of them exist any more as independent people. The Native Americans had quite a few wars. Unless you expect every single American to divide into small tribes and live off the land you're going to end up with a government forced on you by others... Just like what happened to the Native Americans or Australian Aborigines. We've been doing this since the Roman times.

Awaken from your dreamy state Libertarian, what you claim will not work in reality. Any attempt at what you propose will end up as a series of dictatorships at best, outright fascism at worst.

My Nexus 5 is pretty thin. I don't use a case with it. The screen has not broken. I haven't gone out of my way to be especially careful with it, either.

It's just not that damn hard to use a phone without breaking it, unless you're ridiculously careless.

Same with my Nexus 5. It's 1.5 mm thicker but that 1.5mm is just because of a larger battery that affords it 25% longer life to an Iphone 6.

However thinness is pretty much all they have, the Nexus 5 we have has better specifications (higher res screen) or at worse, is the same as an Iphone 5 (both have Lets ignore the Nexus 5 was released in October 2013.

So I'm happy to let the Iphone have that one. It's thin. Enjoy your 1.5mm tiger.

The world is not octal despite DEC.
