Comment: If you want a Diet avoid Diet food. (Score 5, Interesting) 230

I have lost 75lbs. Part of it was exercise, and the other part is cutting out Diet food from my Diet.
If I want something sweet, I eat something with Real Sugar.
If I want something fattening then I will eat something fattening, like with real butter.

I am not about organic and all natural. But you should focus more on foods that you know of. They will tend to fill you up and stop the craving.
Diet food, doesn't fill you up or solve your craving. So you eat more of it.

Because if it is, you need to pull your head out of your ass and go and do some extremely basic, cursory, research on the situation in the US. There are for sure some loud fundy Christian that like to whine about science, evolution in particular. However they have had little and less success in pushing their agenda and the US remains a powerful center of scientific research.

Trying to equate the US to ISIS is beyond stupid.

I agree,
but I think overall as the characters mature in the show, they become less awkward over time.
With the exception of Sheldon, where I kinda wish they would just come out and state that the character is autistic at some level. Instead of just making him a super scientist who needs to make all these trade-offs in his personal life to be there.
While I do not fall on the recorded Autism spectrum. The way they make Sheldon would be very insulting to people with these problems.

I am curious on why Tovalds opinion on systemd really matters.
I congratulate him for his work on the Linux Kernel, He made a really good OS, and put enough effort and skill to keep a strong team of developers focused.
However that doesn't make him an expert in all thing. Even all things related to the OS he had pivotal to create.

The systemd argument is about methodology not technology. It is the same as most political redirect. Two groups with a different vision of an end goal, taking different approaches to get there.

The Government Bidding process for services is corrupt by design.
You can make bid for service.
Then you have stipulations which weigh it in a companies favor, not because they are required for the job, but to write the contract for the company.

I have seen State Bids for services for a Web Site. Which has odd requirements, such as 20+ years in COBOL, 10+ Years in RPG, 3 Years of HTML, 2 Years of ASP.NET
When you see these contracts you know they are for a particular person they want to keep on board.

My main issue is we are entering a post desktop world. (No the desktop isn't dyeing, but it isn't the center of our computing world)
So we need the following.
1. A platform to create moble apps.
2. Being able to create these apps on different systems.

It is actually very lame to have to have a Mac to build an iOS app. You really should be able to do it on at least the Big three OS Windows,Mac,Linux. Because we are not desktop centrist anymore and people will go around with different Desktops and OS's freely.

The biggest issue with a lot of of the home grown Open Source Apps, is getting past the dreaded 80% complete mark.
This is the point in the program where all the interesting proof of concepts and interesting algorithms are all set. However that last 20% is a lot of the detail fine tuning that really puts all the pieces in play.
This last 20% mark when it no longer becomes fun, is where the project looses steam and sometimes dies off.
Having a company putting money towards development with management and direction and all those MBA Buzzwords basically means we push the developers to get that last 20% done.
But of course if they are pushing to get that set done, and are putting in resources to help that, it is going to be their vision of 20% not necessary yours.

I know a lot of the Open Source people have this Anti-Corporate everything mind set... However to make it in the world there needs other sources of motivation other then just feeling good.

Analog Data fairs better when it isn't touched, every read could damage it a bit, and copying a copy of a copy using analog methods will degrade its content.

For digital data, it wants to be moved around.
The more you copy and move digital data the better it is.
Raid Disks makes sure you have a couple of copies.
You post it the cloud and it will last longer.
You could get fancy and have a backup method that copies your data from one drive to an other. When it fails you swap the drive out with a new one.
