If you are wondering why Christians, Muslims and Jewdaists hate evolution so much, it's because it breaks their belief that humans are pefrect (made after the image of god). So, the belief that humans are not capable of evil and that it's some devil doing it is shattered.
"I wanna see the oxygen deniers" We only have gravity deniers so far. Gravity is "just a theory", the earth and the universe itself are held together by the hand of God (Col 1:17). And yes, some people believe such things http://www.chick.com/reading/t... According to Wikipedia, some professor wrote an article on "Intelligent Falling", but the paper has been retracted and hasn't been archived http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I...
Wow! Downvoted already, no reply with refutation from the downvoter of course. Arrogant slashdot neckbeards have to stand for arrogant developers, because they code FOSS I guess. Where would FOSS be without arrogance amd overgrown infants (neckbeards) policing the internet?? (by downvoting of course, no refutation).
" you are driving the amp at 100% and VLC volume at 200%, I wouldn't warrant you either. That's negligence" I believe it's accidental, not on purpose. As i said in the post above yours, VLC has it's volume controls mapped to the scroll wheel, so you may accidentally push volume above 100% without realizing it. Especially if you use the touchpad. Stupid design decision (allow user to push volume above 100% by default) compounded by silliness (volume control mapped to the scroll wheel). But the VLC dudes have an arrogance measured in metric tonnes, so they 'll probably defend the scroll wheel thing, as they 've done in the past.
Playing the devil's advocate here, but most audio waveforms look like sine-waves (so to speak). Converting the waveform to a square-wave (what VLC's clipping does when you push the volume above 100%) puts a prolonged stress on the speakers even if you don't increase max output, which most speakers can't withstand. And the VLC dudes have helpfully mapped the volume controls to the scroll wheel, so you 'll probably push the volune above 100% accidentally. Thhe ability to push volume above 100% should be disabled by default IMO. Anyway, if your Dell fries speakers but can stilk boot, uninstall VLC and KM Player.
Practically all devices have 802.11g, because it existed before the Wi-Fi boom happened. So, let's keep compatibility with 802.11g and better. Keeping support for 802.11b and the earlier version just so some ancient creeky old laptop can connect is a waste.
What was that Google said about ChromeOS not "torturing it's users with malware threats. Turns out ChromeOS can run local code (extensions and "packaged apps") and with this comes the malware.
" Fox-IT says it appears to be 'financially motivated" (Insert Nicolaw Cage "you don't say" pic here) Also, Yahoo has the billing info, IP address and username of the fine fellows behind this. Can't they sue them, or at least publish that info? Oh, I forgot, that would be "aggravating a partner" which is bad for the bottom line...
Playing the devil's advocate, but when the "open source community" says that "you are burning bridges" most of the time they actually mean "you are not doing things the way we want". If Canonical wants to contribute to Mir instead of Wayland, it's their choice. You can't blame them for writing foss software.
Maybe because electric cars are freaking expensive? If you want an electric car which isn't a glorified grocery getter, aka one which does more than 100km range, the prices are ridiculous. Most people can't spend more than 20000 on a car. The only electric car worth buying is the Volt, which might pay off in gas costs eventually. And only if you live in the US where it carries lots of incentives.
Cloud services are the spiritual succesor to the BOFH. All the power, none of the responsibility.
The quality difference between Beta and VHS was negligible anyway. Both put out somewhere around 200 "tv lines" of horizontal luma resolution (vertiical resolution in analog systems is fixed by the system you are using, ntsc or pal) and terrible chroma resolution. Nobody was able to really tell the difference between VHS and Beta no matter what they told you. Quality was much more affected by tape quality or VCR quality (number of heads and head cleaniness) actually. People were duped into believing Beta was if higher quality because of Sony's superior marketing.
Competition at last. Wayland developers started doing real work when their status as the "defacto succesor to X.org" became challenged.
