I was going to take my three sons to see the new Marvel Comics Move "Avengers: Age of Ultron".. forget about it now. I urge you all to do the same. use the internet , get the word out. There is only one way to deal with greedy bastards.. make them go broke. After they go broke they will take care of the rest.
Ahh.. that reminds me.. Time to wrap an elastic band around the rinse nozzle on the kitchen sink, maple syrup in the hair shampoo, Saran wrap across the toilet basin.
If Superfish is installed the adware can be searching the hard drive for financial information, credit card, bank accounts, all at risk. I suggest not to purchase any Lenovo equipment. It's not what it used to be anyway. If you have to buy a Lenovo then I suggest you re-image it.
I built a lot of Radio Shack kits. I built a pixe tube clock, an atomic clock radio, I bought a Realist Navaho Base Station when I was 12 years old. Radio Shack sold one of the first home pcs too. In the 70s and 80s Radio Shack actually designed, manufactured, and sold products. The TRS-80 is one. One of the first home pcs. lot's of software. I have a Tandy Pocket PC that I kept for a soveinier.. I bought it around 1983. I was a college student then in my freshman year. When I was a kid Radio Shack was one of the only electronic stores that you can bring your television or radio tubes in to test, and buy a replacement. They also had their own stereo line of products. The equipment was great. I still have a pair of Minmus-7 spears. I have them attached to my hd tv on the second floor. They still sound great. I remember to elelctronic magazine rack. I would always buy the latest electronic experimenters book by Forest M. Mimms. I'd take circuits in the lab and combine them to build my own gadgets. Radio Shack actually ceased to exists when they stopped building Realistic Navaho CBs, Minmus line of Speakers, stopped innovating the home pc market, eliminated the book shelf, stopped selling original kits based on the components they sold, and became a cell phone shop. It's too bad. I believe my time spent in Radio Shack as a kid kind of steered me into the career I got into.
You know you pay for air time regardless if it a wrong number or spam right ? All the more reason the dump your cell phone. If you are tied to your phone because of work have work provide the phone or at least get reimbursed.
My MacPro was acquired through a "salvage pile" at work in 2010. After I fixed it by puchasing a new memory riser I increased RAM to 32gb because it was cheap at the time and the virtual machines I run could take full advantage of the 8 cores and memory. Mac OS hasn't been stable since 10.6.8 I upgraded to 10.7 in 2011, 10.8 in 2012, 10.9 in 2013, updated to 10.9.5 in 2014 -> Linux Mint 17 September 2014, Linux Mint 17.1 December 2014 I figured out how to run Linux bare metal on mac so I am running Linux Mint 17.1 on a Mac Pro 2,1 with 32gb ram, NVIDIA GTX 560 graphics card, and 8tb storage. I do lvm snapshots to a ESATA jbod for backups. Linux is 100% stable on Mac Pro. It hasn't crashed or locked up since the install on September 2014.
I modified the boot.efi to allow my old mac pro 2,1 to run Mavericks. I'm glad I never upgraded. My old mac with 32gb of ram is plenty fast enough.. make -j 20... all I have to say is wow this baby can compile code fast. I also have an NVIDIA GTX 560 graphics card and a vintage GT120 for boot selection. I picked another mac pro 8 core 2,1 on ebay and built up a 32gb8 core Linux beast running linux on bare mac metal. Now that I see thunderbolt is full of security holes I bet the next generation if macs will be locked down. I will never purchased locked down hardware.
If I want to create a folder I should be able to create a folder. Too much protection. less user control. I'm working on hacking a Micro Center Windows 8.1 tablet to run Linux natively now. If this is the direction Android is taking I am done with it.
wow... someone does not know anything about coding. Go ahead and try to write a kernel extension in python... wow. there are different languages for different tasks. C will be around for a very long time.
Any operating system has security holes... unix/linux has less... and you take a security risk when you outsource or just hire newbies out of school. You need to hire people who have been at it a while, pay them what they are worth.. and hire newbies for the sr. system engineers to mentor. they get what they get. and java... well.. Oracle Sucks.. we all know that. You can code around it.. just code with security in mind, close all security holes. don't run external processes as a trusted user.
When comcast forced me to use a cable box (I was watching hd programming fine without it) I dropped my extended basic package with blast + and reduced to blast + and the old legacy package. I get most of my HD network programming over the air now. I really only have comcast now for internet access. when I get capped I will look for another provider.
You can be a genius and not get an A in your typical school. You get bored too easy. As you age you still have the raw genius brain power but you if you don't have self discipline no one else would think you are a genius.
I would write my own with LDAP and some custom code that will manage ulimit and other tools to manage resources. It's a piece of cake.
What are they thinking ? My carport is made of wood, concrete, and roofing material (roofing shingles,etc) In New England structures need to withstand 100mph wind gusts. It does happen. Winter Blizzard wind gusts have hit 80mph. Cold wind packs a punch. My next home improvement is going to involve replacing the decorative shutters with real working shutters. A large carport roof is a great place to locate solar panels. I'm still looking for a deal. Something that won't take 17 years to pay for itself. That is just stupid to me. I'm looking to build a cheap 5kw solar generator for $1,500.00. I bet it can be done. I
This is what happens people have no clue about the technology they are working with. The cell phone antennae is far too close to the eyes. The human eyes consist of a thin membrane and a lot of water. It does not take much radiation to induce eye cancer. I never put a cell phone near my head. I always use speaker phone mode.
