You are under the assumption that everyone agrees you get a good education in an "elite" school. Many of them are just liberal indoctrination machines. Any census on the number of liberal vs conservative professors will back that up.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Any game where I can say "I've got wood for sheep" is tops in my book.
Yes, but not 16x9 landscape. It's an arbitrary number forced upon us by the HDTV folks. 16x10 is much more useful.
Doesn't matter what the reason is. FLAC is archival because it is lossless. You can create MP3's from it later, or convert it to a different format. But once an MP3, always an MP3 (quality), even if you want to change it later.
Most of those required monthly fees so it was in your best interest to coerce your friends into choosing "yours". Facebook is free.
The problem in the USA is a social issue, not guns. There are many more asshats in the USA now than previous decades and something needs to be done about that. Other than the occasional random shooting, most of it is gang related and confined the liberal meccas of DC, Chicago, LA, NYC, Detroit, etc. The poor and uneducated are mostly to blame, so lets fix that. Personally, a law forbidding the idolization of gangstas (be it rap music, advertising or anything else) would go much farther to fix things.
There was a period of time where kids in the rifle club took their guns on the school bus so they could go shooting after school. No big deal. Now making a gun out of your fingers and saying "pew pew" as kids play at recess gets you expelled. 'Seems this heavy handed approach isn't working. Big Brother approaches never do.
Was it too small 5 years ago?
People are so easy to give up their freedoms and control. Now they welcome it.
No, Windows 8 Metro is unintuitive. Also, trying using it through RDP or under VMware. Where's that blessed corner?!
We rent rack space in a shared datacenter and since there is no office space for companies, there is no point in running your own WiFi. However, when network admins visit their servers, it sometimes make sense to bring along an AP just for convenience sake so you can get on your network and do stuff with your laptop...temporarily of course. We leave an AP there unplugged most of the time and only plug it in when needed. When used, it's encrypted.
Well, turns out we aren't the only company with that idea. Somebody from some other company forgot to unplug their AP and it was probably was unencrypted, giving total access to their rack for all to see, not to mention that WAP! Doh.
I wasn't the person who did it, but next time I came in to the datacenter, said access point was still running with the SSID of "Encrypt-your-fucking-wireless".
There was one point I liked about that article. If people don't like Windows 8, it has nothing to do with change. The fact is the gui for Windows 8 just plain sucks. It's counter-intuitive and makes navigation worse. Change for the sake of change does not make something better. It's interesting to hear that at that school, young and old, WinXP, Win7 and Linux all fared better than Win8. Are you listening Microsoft?
I have motorcycles that will have issues without premium gas. Considering crashing=death, I'd call that a requirement.
Mmm mmm MMMM! I luv me sum good scorpions batter fried!
Maybe by 2020, I'll have a home broadband connection that is 100Mb.
A hierarchical start menu and "All Programs" is not fluff. I live by it.
When you have dozens if not hundreds of applications on your PC, and some are seldom used, it helps to be able to browse through your installed program base when you want to do something, but can't remember the name of that one shareware app you downloaded to make it happen. You can't search if you don't know what you're specifically looking for. But when you see it..."Ah! There it is!"
