I might do it for some things, but right now the ability to only checkout a subdirectory[source] is paramount in the way we use svn around here. Nestled with the fact that there are so many git solutions that are third-party hosted only, and so many hostable open source subversion options available, I'll stick with svn.

Moving everything to the cloud, which is marketing speak for someone else's servers, for increased functionality is not an acceptable solution. Sure, you can host your own git repository, but the functionality in the available F/OSS solutions blows.

Does chromecast work on my television that only has VGA or Component? What about my raspberry pi driven LCD mounted next to my bed? They will never touch the lucrative market of Free Open Source Software users until they remove the DRM and start accepting DogeCoin without having to use a third party to accept said coins. I can live with giving them a throwaway email address, but some of us still value our privacy as well.

The bug report isn't about how something got corrupted. It was about dealing with something that got corrupted. Tieing off the bad thing and starting a new one, and making tools that are robust enough to see past the corruption is totally reasonable. Stopping the corruption in the first place should be a whole different bug report.

The only purpose for putting Elon Musk's name in this is to grab the attention of the reader by dropping a popular name, I'm sure that he isn't proud of this truck; the article doesn't even mention his name. I'm sure that the "editor" that put this up didn't even realize they weren't talking about Elon Musk, they just skimmed through, saw "Tesla Co-Founder" and assumed said article was about Musk... I want to even say that the two aren't even on good terms anymore for some reason, something the "editors" should have looked into.. I'm with Steve Jobs on this one, Bloggers are not Journalists.

That might be true where you are, where I live and in the sort of circles I move, atheism is more or less a default, and it's always a bit odd when you discover someone actually goes to church under the age of 50. Given that, it's rarely discussed, because, well, it's hard to discuss. "Still no god?" "Yep. Still no god." "How about that rugby game then?" That's just a bit awkward and unnecessary.
