Ah the Google+ haters. I and millions of others use Google+ every day. We just use it for things other than whining about stupid shit and complaining about High School like what you find on Facebook. Unlike Facebook I find Google+ to actually be useful. Hate all you want, bitch about how Grandma and little Tina in 10th grade aren't using it. I really don't give a fuck. I'm just glad you and the other whining bitches aren't on it. Thanks for staying away.
Really, McAfee is the best celebrity you can get Slashdot? He's not even had anything to do with tech for what, 20 years?
Careful what you wish for. We'll end up with an RMS/Linus sex tape or something.
Forking a distro usually happens when one of the people working on it doesn't feel they are "in charge" enough, and they want to be "the boss," so they go off and create "their own" little fiefdom to rule over.
In my experience it's usually the opposite. When the current dictator in charge refuses input from a large group of contributors, is abusive or otherwise tries to exploit the free labor being contributed to the project. Take XF86 for example and how that debacle ended up. Take OpenOffice.
A lone person not feeling like they are in control enough, as you say, isn't enough to create a fork. There has to be people behind him/her and willing to contribute to the fork. Take OpenBSD as an example of that or Cinnamon.
I heard that FreeRCT is in need for both programmers and graphic artists. Their goal is to create an open game in the spirit of Rollercoaster Tycoon 1 & 2.
I actually thought about contributing until I saw "C++" in their requirements.
Firefox is on the decline. I really do hope they switch gears and get Firefox up-to-par again. I would really hate to see Chrome dominating the web like IE once did. Mozilla just seems more interested in Rust and FirefoxOS these days. I know they are capable of doing more than one thing at a time but Firefox needs some serious love, I'd like it to be the focus again.
What's 3 and 5% of 3-4 billion? Hint: it's a lot more than 50 million.
I get two days off every week. I get 3 weeks off every year and I have 6 paid days off a year in the form of floating holidays and sick days. That's plenty unless you're a lazy bitch.
You might be a greedy scumbag, regardless of the amount of money you have already accrued. Check for the following symptoms: not wanting to pay taxes on money your employees earned for you, feeling it is totally acceptable to dumb toxic waste from your country off the coast of Somalia, or stealing from babies.
But seriously, this isn't "battling labor laws," this is breaking the law for a higher profit margin.
The laws being talked about are the ones where it is literally impossible to fire the employees unless they commit a crime. My company has an entire office full of people in Italy that do nothing because we have no more use for the facility but the local laws do not allow us to fire them. Instead we make them show up every day, for their 7-8 hours and sit in chairs and do nothing. They get paid for this. Some day they will quit and move on to other jobs and they just wont be replaced. However it's been about 3 years so far and they are still hanging around. France is even worse.
Not to mention the insane amount of paid time off many Europeans get. Honestly, I have a lot of friends in these countries. Many are out of work needlessly. If the government would unpucker its asshole and allow the crap people to be fired, the companies wouldnt be so afraid to hire new ones.
Because negativity draws clicks. This is what movie reviewers have known for decades and have exploited heavily. I honestly can't remember the last positive movie review I read.
You're about as fucking stupid as it gets aren't you?
I just tried Firefox again after a year + on Chrome. I genuinely wanted Firefox to be better but it wasn't. In two days it corrupted its cache 3 times, forcing me to manually clear it. It choked on all of my google cookies and wouldn't allow me to login to gmail until I googled the answer (manually clearing all of my cookies as well as cache). On top of that the sync barfed all over the place when I added a third machine and and somehow the plugins I had loaded, specifically lastpass, ended up taking a shit on all over the place because sync broke.
I'm sorry but Firefox is a piece of shit. It was cool 10 years ago but Mozilla hasn't done a fucking thing worth mentioning in years now. It's only getting worse too with FirefoxOS and Rust. There is no leadership at Mozilla and they are slipping into irrelevancy quickly.
Every time this topic comes up, someone like you mentions how you can disable every single "spying" thing... but fail to provide specific details about how/where to do so. Occasionally, they'll tell you to "google it" or "look it up yourself." I find that very curious.
The phone is actually very good. The hardware that is. If you stripped out Facebook Home you would basically have stock android on it. At
One day (and I believe it will be soon), a viable alternative will appear and their collective mass of users will leave practically overnight.
No one loves Facebook. Its not cool. Its just where everyone is hanging until something better comes along.
I went over to Google+ and have never looked back. All the high school bullshit from 20 years ago that somehow found me on Facebook is now long gone. I honestly hope Facebook stays alive for a while so as to keep all the fuckers I hate from my high school years away from my social networking.
[P]rostitution, adultery, necrophilia, bestiality, possession of child pornography, and even incest and pedophilia
Some rules might be called for when these acts directly affect other people's interests. For incest, contraception could be mandatory to avoid risk of inbreeding. For prostitution, a license should be required to ensure prostitutes get regular medical check-ups, and they should have training and support in insisting on use of condoms. This will be an advance in public health, compared with the situation today.
For necrophilia, it might be necessary to ask the next of kin for permission if the decedent's will did not authorize it. Necrophilia would be my second choice for what should be done with my corpse, the first being scientific or medical use. Once my dead body is no longer of any use to me, it may as well be of some use to someone. Besides, I often enjoy rhinophytonecrophilia (nasal sex with dead plants).
I am skeptical of the claim that voluntarily pedophilia harms children. The arguments that it causes harm seem to be based on cases which aren't voluntary, which are then stretched by parents who are horrified by the idea that their little baby is maturing.
There is little evidence to justify the widespread assumption that willing participation in pedophilia hurts children.
Granted, children may not dare say no to an older relative, or may not realize they could say no; in that case, even if they do not overtly object, the relationship may still feel imposed to them. That's not willing participation, it's imposed participation, a different issue.
I've read that male dolphins try to have sex with humans, and female apes solicit sex from humans. What is wrong with giving them what they want, if that's what turns you on, or even just to gratify them?
