"Chubby Rain", Robert Bowfinger,1999
But it's really sad that things like this get elevated to this kind of situation, and I personally find it annoying that it's always the same f*cking primadonna involved.

We must ban Cisco equipment and Microsoft/Apple systems from our governments offices, once and for all. There are alternative solutions available, let's develop them, let's deploy them. Before, there was a risk. Now there is a fact. So what are we waiting for ?
While we're at it, why not rent a judge, you know, to speed up the lawsuit process, stuff like that.
Smells like OCP to me.
Purchase Dell products instead. They offer free firmware downloads accessible from FTP without scripts, filters etc... super easy to use, very clean http pages as well.
Yes this is almost a publicity post but this is such a dick move from HP that I have to state the obvious: Dell is cool with his customers on the firmware side.
You can discuss about the quality of Dell products on other subjects or price, but on the firmware/drivers side they are cool and nowadays it need to be said when an IT vendor is cool.
And now Windows 9 is showing... tell me why should I upgrade my windows 7 machines ? The faster they release the less I want to upgrade. I prefer to wait until the dust settles. Even the users can understand this. Windows 7 have become a comfort zone.

GW2 grind is souldcrushingly long and tedious, as the game not only has far more grind than WoW ever it, it does the grind in a massively boring way, just like GW1 did. You just repeat the same small subset of actions in the same place all over and over and over and over again. I absolutely love their art, which is by far the best in the industry, but gameplay was remarkably boring after a few hours with very little depth and grind was just soul crushing. And I say this as someone who played GW1 for years, where best form of farm was running two instances with a solo build that could be (and widely was) botted.
What are you talking about ? All my guild was unanimous when they said that the leveling in GW2 was the coolest one they've seen in a MMO for a long time. And that was the same for me. The levels came to me like nothing, I just traveled in a beautiful world and I even posted scrrenshots, a thing that I never do usualy. And one day I was 80.
But nothing stops you from camping a place and doing the same stuff if you want to, just like IRL.
GW2 was the most refreshing MMO I've played in a long time.
