Very very occasionally, if the description sounds interesting, I'll paste the description/requirements into Google. Most of these spamming third-party recruiters just copy-paste from public job postings, so Google can usually find the original posting on the employer's Web site.
I used to be a republican, back in the Reagan days. But these days (hell, since Bush Jr.) my "traditional" views have all but been marginalized. The democrats aren't much better.
Although I don't (yet) feel ashamed of the D's, as I do about the R's like when shit like this occurs. Can they make it any more plain they're bought and sold??
(Well past) Time to find a new party...
I don't know whether to boast, or seek professional help...
So you'll send your kid to a school, spending who knows how much money and time in the process, based on one site?
I stand by my assertion.
without further fact checking, is a complete idiot.
Or as Ronald Reagan once said, "Trust, but verify."
They've clarified this many times.
No, they haven't. All the "clarifications" I can find are simply regurgitations of the same ambiguous phrasing.
When you realize that Microsoft have been openly discussing a subscription-based version of Windows, then the phrase, "Free for the first year," takes on an entirely different meaning, now doesn't it? Microsoft has not clarified this, even to discredit it.
And even if MS isn't planning on a subscription-based flavor of Windows, they still have been abundantly less than clear exactly which version of Windows 10 you'll be receiving for free. Will it be a kind-for-kind trade (Home version for Home version, "Pro" version for "Pro" version, etc.), or will everyone get the lowest tier SKU available, probably with Bing plastered everywhere?
It would be nice if I were wrong about this. But Microsoft's history demands that I be very suspicious of Gateses bearing gifts.
All of which makes me deeply suspicious of what this "free" version of Windows actually is. We clearly haven't been told the whole story yet.
As it happens, about three years ago I started doing an irregular series of Let's Play/Drown Out videos on YouTube with my colleage, GammaDev. Both of us are former employees of 3DO, and we covered The Deal that Never Happened in a video about two years ago (seek to 25:12).
Frankly, I'm having a hard time seeing how Lenovo recovers from this.
So the NWO (once a tin-foil hat conspiracy theory) is coming true, only 25 years after it was predicted.
It's well past time for https everywhere, constant VPNs and full encryption for everything
- Expand systemd to the point where large swaths of everything depend on it, so that he is controlling as much of the code base as possible.
- Insult Linus Torvalds for a while to try to undermine his authority.
- Fork Linux, or demand that Linus give control of Linux over to him, or he will rage-quit and take his code with him.
I don't see it unfolding that way. Remember what happened when BitKeeper tried to get up in his business. Linus, if provoked, could write an init/system management framework in a couple weeks (and probably name it "twerp" or some such). And I suspect he would do so long before things got to stage #3, just to prove the point.
C'mon, guys, this is copy-pasted marketing fluff. Better is expected of you.
