What's the current density of read/write randomly-accessible information?
Is there any way to find out how much of M$ revenue/profits are due to government & other public sector contracts?
It's our money, so I'd be nice to know how much we're paying them.
For the kneejerks among us who will undoubtedly not understand the subtlety I was trying to convey there, the saying can be interpreted to apply to both the Israelis and the Palestinians alike.
The Mandate ends and the Israelis get invaded...
so they take up arms to defend themselves...
and after doing so successfully they go on the offensive and capture more territory...
then the Palestinians take up arms to resist and try to get their territory back...
so they keep sending suicide bombers and launching rockets over the border...
so the Israelis retaliate with helicopter airstrikes...
And on and on and on.
so mozilla gave up, to make the web a better place?
If the open source world releases something (unencumbered with the GPL - i.e., BSD licensed) with encoding and decoding tools that actually works as well or better than the closed alternative, in a timely manner then I'm sure people will use it.
It will never happen. Get used to it. There is far, far less complex stuff in the free desktop that has been broken for the past 20 years and still not fixed.
And it depends where you are online. I'm a member of an online RPG called Kingdom of Loathing with a pretty active chat system.
The moderators are *very* active. Say what you will about heavy-handedness, but recent events have proven that if you start throwing around anything with a flavor of misogyny to it in open chat, you will be banned with much prejudice. May be partially related to our uncharacteristically high female playerbase but the game creators are all guys.
Not if it has paradox-absorbing crumple zones.
Clearly because I don't come from a culture where ripping people off is considered not only socially acceptable, but actually encouraged, I'm naive.
Or perhaps you're naive in assuming that us people in the Nordics need to be as careful shopping at home as we are when we shop in a country with culture like yours.
I do not watch videos done by the power company or the water company.
