Probably make me dislike Star Trek as much as I'm beginning to dislike Doctor Who. Which is ironic, considering my favorite Tennant episodes were written by Moffat, but now that he's in control, it feels like every episode has to be more over-the-top than the one before it, especially in series 7.5.
What if one already finds Congress contemptible?
I really dropped the ball on that one. Sorry.
I've been running Debian since about 1999... and I've been using Openbox since about... 2003? 2004? Does that mean that I was running #! before it existed?
"Atomation 2: Quantum Boogaloo"?
Having *just* in the past few weeks gotten a Blu-Ray player, these are the movies I've gotten:
* Original Star Trek movie collection (daily deal on Amazon, and what spurred me)
* Next Gen Star Trek movie collection
* Galaxy Quest (to be inserted in the above rotation at the proper point)
* Ghostbusters (it was less than $10)
* Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness, My Name is Bruce
I'm pretty sure that's all I have. I usually just use Netflix as well, but those are movies that I either enjoy watching over, will do a marathon of, or are great for putting on for background noise. We're planning to marathon the Star Trek this summer while pigging out on steamed crabs, which is easily a 8-10 hour activity for us.
Sandy sure rocked my world...
So you're saying it doesn't pass the sniff test?
It's been done before... The question is, is this implementation better?
I prefer, despite the stupid idiotic artificial blockages, to be on the up-and-up, totally legal... FSVO, and I'm sure importing hardware could be construed as not, but much less so than those people you "know"...
And special guest stars that happen to be wrestlers... who'll have more acting talent than some of the main cast...
Classic BBC Sci-fi Series Blake's 7 To Return

is to be remade
*anger* "... fuck!"
by Heroes writer
*rage* "NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!"
Maybe I should just import a Region 2 DVD player and the discs from the UK, since it looks like it never got released here in the US.
It's like this every year. I really and truly hate the internet on April 1. The saddest part is that so many of my (former) go-to sites seem to think that it's fun to do this for 24+ hours at a stretch, instead of carefully interspersing things throughout the day. After the first hour or two, it really makes me question why I bother reloading the pages, then I remember that I'd have to do work otherwise.
Given there was a published code of conduct that specifically stated not to do these kinds of things, there's no "entitlement", it was clearly a violation of said conduct codes. Unfortunately, it wasn't until *after* this incident that the wording to contact the staff privately was added. I'd argue that for reasonable adults, that wording shouldn't be needed, but alas...
This isn't a PyCon problem at all. By all accounts, the staff and management of PyCon did everything correctly and by the book. It was an *attendee* problem.
Should the jokes have been made? No. Should someone have said something? Yes. Should PyCon staff have been alerted? Should a picture have been taken, published to the public internet? No. Should anyone have been fired? No. Should this have been handled privately? Yes.
I'd never heard of any of the parties involved until 2-3 days ago. But I agree that we all lost. And if the reported interactions in there are true (and, honestly, I can't see why someone would fabricate that when it's so easily verifiable), then the first party seems to have a history of *not* dealing with things with the people in question, but instead screaming to the rest of the world to incite massive action. It just seems to have eventually backfired this time.
Frankly, I don't care either way. I don't think the word "dongle" was ever even uttered in my workplace until this week. Forking was, but that's what happens with developers and public repos. If I were a Python developer, I'd consider going to PyCon. Just like if I were an active Ruby developer, I'd consider RubyCon despite similar issues in the past. I think I recall a PHP one, too. It's not the con, the organizers, or the sponsors who are to be blamed for these things, especially when they have publish codes of conduct.
