V.I.N.CENT - "There are three basic types, Mr. Pizer: the Wills, the Won'ts, and the Can'ts. The Wills accomplish everything, the Won'ts oppose everything, and the Can'ts won't try anything."
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I use disks heavily. I'll backup data until the disk or disks are broken and needs to be replaced. I often replace disks in a disk array. Yay RAID and hot swappable drives!
How about a space mirror? This seems like a better alternative than to blanket the sky with aerosols.
We must stop dumping carbon into the atmosphere. We need a Manhattan project for clean energy and over all efficiency. We will also have to change the way we live and perform operations on the planet. (No one want to hear this.) We could use this crisis as an inspiration for building a better life for all and more hopeful future. (Yeah, I like Star Trek.)
Gene Roddenberry - "In the 24th century there will be no hunger, there will be no greed, and all the children will know how to read."
Give these people and automatic extension. Make there tax date June 15th.
My personal feeling is that The Affordable Healthcare Act didn't go far enough. We need to go to single payer or something else. The current system is not functioning for most Americans and the costs are too high. Americans are in trouble. I have difficultly understanding the why folks oppose reforming the health system. There are a bunch of other systems that need reform too.
COBOL is great and prolific programming language. COBOL programms will be running long after we are dead. I almost wish I saw more COBOL on Linux. Designed by Grace Hopper she made it so average people with limited CS knowledge could get work done. It's about a sexy as Mom's minivan but it brings the groceries home.
If they will not prosecute maybe the feds will. Either way this guy can't walk. Prosecute or roll back the law.
Better launch systems and faster engines might help. The less time in microgravity, the less damage.(?) That fact we use chemical rockets to get into space and maneuver seems kind of antique.
systemd doesn't play well with others and it's an architectural abomination. Not to mention that systemd folks have the reputation of not playing well with others. It does things that admins and engineers just don't want their systems to do. Hmmm... I don't like systemd and it does things I do not like... Well F!@#$ that!
If SysV isn't enough we need to start coding something new.
Drones are military weapons and the FBI is a civilian organization. No civilian organization should have access to military style weapons, uniforms, or equipment.
No one on Wall St, except for the willingly deluded, believes that the markets are not rigged. Ever strategy takes into the account how the market is rigged and works to deal with it. You're either a whale (those that rigged the market) or remora (those work to siphon some value from the whales).
I'm an egotistical programmer who can't conceive of anyone position but my own. They should pay me more.
Lite a fire under everyone butts and it got fixed and deployed in hours. I see nothing wrong with this. Maybe it's time to crank up the heat.
And the conversation goes something like this:
"We must make sure those little shits have no private communication and Exxon dominates energy production. If those dirty unwashed masses where every to gain political control and self sufficiency it would be the end for all of us."
Thugs have no authority. The are responsible for the crimes they commit and should be jailed immediately.
