Is it too early to make nominations for the Nobel prize?
This is like the season premier for Sick Sad World
no, no one has ever had anything to say about emacs vs. vim.
I am all for exploring solutions and like the linux community as a whole but let us not pretend that flame wars in FSF lands haven't started over less.
no, Breach the contract and DARE the manufacturer to sue you for damages.
Ignorance might be the excuse they try but just signing the NDA is conspiracy.
and the last time I checked ignorance of the law is still not a valid excuse.
it sounds like racketeering on the part of the manufacturer.
and it SHOULD result in the release of what sounds like a sexual predator.
And isn't tricking every cell phone in range a DMCA violation?
that was my first question. Is the Operator supposed to wear this while it works?
Or does one put it in the attic of the house next door and just leave it on?
that sounds like a step down the slope of Communism.
The kind of people who throw away whole libraries wouldn't dream of letting people have the books for free.
They aren't trying to privatize the library, they are trying to bury it.
It's about making information that you don't want go away.
"At some point someone has to clean up the most violent murderers of society
Why? When? Who?
Society has been rolling along quite nicely with the "Most Violent Murderers" and the biggest thieves and the worst liars all intact.
Cleaning them up is a nice phrase, but what you mean is kill them.
I'd not like to take part in any killing, even if it makes you more comfortable.
I think the saying goes:
"and nothing of value was lost."
You want law and order? Try harder.
Killing of innocents is NEVER a good thing.
and one of those updates offered to me is 10.9
don't mind the ass-hat trolls
wait, a Beowulf cluster of Natalie Portman?
if only they had remembered the hot grits...
You conjugated wrong.

Just to quote wikipedia:
In e-mail and newsgroup usage, another type of signature exists which is independent of one's language. Users can set one or more lines of custom text known as a signature block to be automatically appended to their messages. This text usually includes a name, contact information, and sometimes quotations and ASCII art. A shortened form of a signature block, only including one's name, often with some distinguishing prefix, can be used to simply indicate the end of a post or response. Some web sites also allow graphics to be used. Note, however, that this type of signature is not related to electronic signatures or digital signatures, which are more technical in nature and not directly understandable by humans
I did not "insist on a privacy invading Log-in"
I just think that it's kind of fucked up to post a slur on the entire slashdot user base as an anonymous coward.
But you, I give you credit for at least not being anonymous.
I have no love for Facebook. I have no dog in this fight.
