Those would fall under "managing basic day-to-day" responsibilities." That seems pretty clear from context...
That was kind of my point: an adult who can't manage her basic day-to-day responsibilities isn't particularly "mentally or emotionally stable."
Bernadette is maybe the most well adjust and "normal" character on that show, with exception of maybe Penny.
A grown woman who can't be bothered to learn how to manage her household budget or maintain her car comes across as the most "well adjusted and normal." That's even sadder than the parade-o-parodies that makes up the rest of the cast...
And don't give me any of that "plight of the economically disadvantaged" stuff as a crap excuse . She can afford the bog-standard closet full of double-hex-digit pairs of shoes and "girls' shopping trips" and MMOGs (because they realized that there was a stereotype they hadn't played for cheap laughs yet).
That may be intentional. In fact they confirm it is. What better way for an attacker to cover his tracks after a successful break-in then being able to credibly corrupt the logs.
Have none of these people spent even a week on the administration side, FFS? Change "an attacker" to "a malfunctioning process" and, all of a sudden, you want it to be recoverable so you can figure out WTF went wrong so you can fix it.
Well, it depends on how pedantic one wants to be (and this is slashdot, after all.:))
BSD is Unix, but not UNIX(TM). That is, it has the provenance, but not the corporate blessing. Feeling that the latter would confer any value is probably a litmus test of some sort...
Your other two examples are duly solemnized carriers of the brand name, however.
As one who has scratched out a few purpose-built minecraft mods over the past few years, maybe I can clear it up a bit.
It's a multi-step process. The initial de-compilation step is, indeed, just about as useless as you say: lots of net.minecraft.cx.func_11235_a()
But there's a project called MCP Toolkit, which basically goes through every new release and reverse-engineers as much of it as they can (usually a pretty good percentage too), mapping the obfuscated classes, variables and methods to names which, while possibly (probably) not the names used internally, are at least meaningful.
Minecraft Forge, the officially unofficial mod API, used to include MCPing the minecraft source as part of setting up its workspace. It was really handy when I was learning, being able to trace things back through the code to figure out how they worked, but had its downside. I'm not sure whether they got tired of people needlessly making coremods (mods that altered the "vanilla" classes, as opposed to interacting through Forge), or they were afraid of drawing an evil eye from Mojang, or what, but they've altered their whole setup starting late in 1.6.4 so they don't even download the vanilla jar anymore.
More often, I used mischief to get myself into technology...
Monitor all males in real time and if they break the rules, either they get 10 years in prison or they lose an eye. Either one.
The delicious irony of the modern feminism.
Wait, did I just argue one of Anita Sarkeesian's points for her?
No, you argued one of her critics' points against her: a series of poorly-researched and inflammatory rant-videos accomplishes precisely dick other than to serve as a rallying point for similarly-aligned identity politics, who recursively make their own poorly-researched and inflammatory rants, feeding the current paradigm: a loud, incestuous echo-chamber on one side, convinced that their MO of using shame tactics to make other people do things their way, might someday work, if they can just reach that elusive critical mass of obnoxiousness; until then, they'll keep beating on the status quo like wind against a mountain that (rightly) doesn't give a shit.
The whole approach of Anita et al is fundamentally contradictory: you don't demonstrate "equality" or "agency" by demanding that other people do for you, rather than doing yourself.
Not at all. My first foray into ebooks was way back on an old Sony Clie back in the PalmOS days.
Tell me, how does boot taste?
Like freedom, of course. What are you, new here?
Please - stand up behind your accusations and show us all which parts of her videos are self-contradictory
One example: Lara Croft. Originally, she was oversexualized, a sign of an inherently female-hostile game industry. Then, later, when later games toned down her sexuality, that was female-hostile because it apparently meant that the game makers felt that, in order to be taken seriously, a female protagonist has to be more "mannish."
And I really don't understand your complaint about how she spent the kickstarter money. She asked for donations to make a series of videos, alot of people donated with the understanding that she would make the video series, she made the video series. Are you suggesting that she should have taken that money and done something else with it?
She set out from the startup to make videos bitching and moaning and trying to shame others into doing things her way, rather than doing anything herself. Her intentions were ignoble from t=0.
Actually, from what I've read on this thread, no-one has 'trivially proven' this.
Check out Thunderf00t's response video, for starters. There are many others.
"Emotionally manipulative liars" is one of those old school stereotypes about women, and so AC here takes that typification, and extrapolates it onto Sarkeesian without any sort of evidence to bear out that she's actually like that
Have you actually managed to sit through any of her inane dribblings that pass as videos? Plenty of evidence there.
Hell, just the fact that she took a 150k kickstarter and used it to make a video series full of self-contradictory bitching and bullshit accusations rather than, say, making a game that she claims everyone wants (and 150k is plenty to make a good indie game these days, don't let the blockbuster budgets fool you).
It's safe to assert that "intending to shame others into doing things your way" falls safely inside the boundaries of "emotionally manipulative."
The "liar" part is trivially proven, but plenty of others have already gone after that, so finding them will be left as an exercise for the reader.
How can you tell when you receive a lot of death threats whether any of them are credible?
Having done my stint in various online games, I've probably received more death threats than senators have received blowjobs from congressional pages.
I'm pretty confident in my current system, which is something of an inversion of the USPTO policy: When you add "over the internet" to the description of the threat, its credibility drops 99%.
what I'm saying is that always having the cops on cam will take away their 'human' side and they'll just be encouraged more towards robot enforcers.
I think 40+ years of militarization and the "us vs them", "thin blue line" bullshit attitude have made plenty of headway in that regard already, so it's no great loss considering the trade-off.
