This is a lonesome linux virus. Please add

Yeah, I run Fedora...
Some laws are based on assumptions on how things work, and when things stop working that way, the laws break..
It's like encryption: RSA (for instance) is assumed to be secure, because it is damn annoying to factor large numbers into large primes. When that assumption breaks, the algorithm breaks.
There are always two ways to view these cases: internetophiles think that things that was possible offline should continue to be possible online, internetophobes think that things that was possible offline should continue to be possible offline. In this case, should fair use of written works continue to work like it already does, which might mean sacrificing the journalistic profession, or should the journalistic profession (which, unlike record executives, is an important one) be saved, which would mean making fair use in written text work like it already does in music and films (where it's called "sampling", and requires explicit permission).
I do think he's wrong, but I would never agree to debate the issue with him, because he has some pretty good arguments to use...
Is 8am too early to start drinking?
Y is a vowel in Swedish too. And it just like GP says about it being able to act as a vowel in German, it can act that way in english too, like in "why".
Would that be their new iResurrect product I've been reading about?
I don't have a problem with girls, really - it's girls who have a problem with me.
Yeah, totally not the same: I can pretty much ignore my linux servers for weeks, and they still keep serving my every request.
16px * 16px * 256 colors = 65536 favicons. A lot of them looks like shit.
Typing "number of companies united states" into my firefox awesomebar takes me to http://www.manta.com/mb, which claims it has "over 13 million company profiles for businesses in the United States." I think there may be an additional company or two in Europe, Asia and Oceania, and there might be a few non-commercial websites.
Not all of those has a web page, and not all of those who do has a favicon, but...
While I don't know many German engineers, I've met plenty of German computer geeks at conferences. There are definitely some that don't speak English (or refuse to), and even more who've got... interesting pronunciation.
But I thought it would be obvious that I'm making fun of stereotypes in grandparent post. The last time I was in Germany, I kept trying to order food in German, but everyone just kept answering me in English when they heard my horrible German - I'm not dumb enough not to understand that if the immigrants who own pizza places speak English, engineers probably do too.
I'm not so sure "xenophobic" is the right word here, since I've lived all my life (except for the last 4 months) in a Swedish city that's pretty much founded by SAAB Aerotech, and parts of the A380 were engineered in their offices in that city.
Being European, I would strongly advice against buying an Airbus.
Trust me. You do not want to go French. You do not want to have to contact the French for support.
There's one thing that's worse, though: going half French, half German. You do not want to rely on something half built by French, who, due to them being French, won't speak anything but French, and half built by Germans, who due to being German will speak German, as well as English that really is as poor as Hollywood says it is when they make fun of the Germans.
It always comforts me to fly Boeing, when I know that the engineers could at least explain to each other what they were doing.
The government sold off the old channelspace and made billions. I believe the auction netted $19B and the coupon program is budgeted around $1.3B.
This is the concept of profit.
Your confusing this with the private sector.
This is the concept of overhead.
