Comment and as usual, MS wrecked their infrastructure.. (Score 0, Troll) 335

by bits and pieces, MS moved junk around, hid useful fields, then controls, then where files were saved.

and after all those inconveniences, they effed up the whole IT infrastructure with Windows 8. IBM must have cheered, it's Presentation Manager V3, and Microsoft did it.


Comment yep, good idea (Score 1) 806

for me... (1) get rid of the trashmobiles we've got. (2) set up a managed trust for a relative that is indigent and has physical issues. (3) upgrade the security system slightly at home. (4) develop a charity to pass a bill or so around where it's needed in places not covered by safety nets. (5) and NOW we have time to dump a week or two at a time into Habitat for Humanity, get some green space up in neighborhoods that badly need humanizing, stuff like that.

at some point in your life, have you ever listened to AM radio or broadcast television? their stuff gets hit with lightning all the time. if a really good thunderstorm happens to float over their tower, AM radio tends to sound like "Weather Desk Radar shows the //SPLATbzzHummm// county, with //SPLATbzzHummm// t's the latest repor //SPLATbzzHummm//" with the transmitter knocked off the air every few seconds by a direct hit. in NTSC television, the return would be about 3-4 seconds of variable contrast and variable quality sound all over the place.

many are the films and photos of multiple lightning hits on the Empire State Building, because it's tall enough and prominent enough that folks single it out for their photo assignments.

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
