Comment Block all adverts... (Score 5, Insightful) 39

Use a good browser plugin or some good backend rules, but block every single advert out there. That stops the "OHHH YOU GOTTA INSTALL THIS" vector that fools clueless visitors into downloading and running the trojan.

Good people install adblocking on every single computer they touch. Bad people allow ad's from websites.

Dear web admins.... WAHH. If you cant vet and host your ads yourself to make sure they are safe, you dont DESERVE your ad's to make it through.

Linux on the surface Pro 1 or 2 makes the wifi more stable. It has been a nightmare for running windows on it because the marvell wireless chipset is a piece of crap that will lose its initial configuration the windows driver only loads it on install. the linux driver was modified to reload it on every single boot.

Blame microsoft for using the low grade dog food that is Marvell chipsets.

". One of the biggest reasons to *not* vote for Sanders is that the free health care giveaway is just going to make people more dependent on the central government"

As Opposed to the Piece of crap healthcare system designed by Mitt Romney we have now that is designed to line the pockets of Insurance companies?

"Affordable Healthcare Act" is Romneycare in every form... if it was "obamacare" I would not have to be paying $850 a month for it. Real republicans would be outraged by the shit being pulled in congress by republican leaders..
I would rather have "free healthcare" that doesn't bankrupt people and punish the middle class than having the Bullshit that the current leadership shoved down our throats.

How about restoring the 5th amendment? How about abiding by the fucking constitution and protecting it? You know real important shit that has been ignored for the past 14 years because of the boogymen of terrorism.. Instead you are all upset about something that will actually help people?

This is why I don't call myself republican anymore, people like you prefer to hate instead of doing what is right.

Go ahead and look for Sirius tuner RS232 information online.... most of the links are dead-dead. having non dead links on your site by caching the information is a good idea because your content does not go irrelevant when someone shuts down their freebie page because they got bored.

Pass, I'll spend the same coin on a used surface pro 2 and install a full 64 bit ubuntu and get a dramatically better device.
Or get one of the china celeron based $199 windows tablets and install ubuntu if I really have to go for a cheap throw away.

I do not understand what they are after with a high price tablet running the mobile ubuntu.

Not a problem. Buy those houses for 10% above fair market value and do it.

Maybe if Cities had competent leadership they would think of these solutions. If the cities had competent City managers they would already have 100 year planning and put everything in place to start those projects by buying the property decades before it is needed.

Instead, we get the drooling morons that is typical for today's leadership. Fuck the citizens and the city, What can I do to get reelected....
