Why do people always assert the universe gives a flying fuck about political ideology?
As far as AGW is concerned, while the universe is telling us what is happening, what to do about it falls squarely in the political realm. That's because all the solutions harm one group instead of another. Urban dwellers are fine with solutions like eliminating fossil fuels but rural folks don't have electric tractors and long-haul trucks. Poor people in northern climates want to keep their natural gas furnaces, and well-off elites want to keep their commercial air flights.
It's called iTunes File Sharing and doesn't require having to enable anything for it to work.
It does require iTunes, though. If I want to move files on or off of my Android devices, I only need an OS with MTP support (or PTP, if you only want to pull pictures off).
I wouldn't really describe masturbating five times a day, using your bulbous gut as a potato chip tray, and slurping Red Bull all night as "quirky."
They should do like the US, and just put everyone under surveillance regardless of whether any suspicion of any activity exists.

Highly doubtful. They have a $600 million contract with the CIA. Awarded just a few months before Bezos bought the Washington Post.
Hes delayed the trial so many times over so many petty reasons and cost the taxpayer millions in the process.
If getting a continuance on a court date costs millions of dollars for the taxpayers, I'd say the problem is with your judicial process, not with Kim Dot Com.
Donald Trump. New Age Maven?
by John C. Dvorak
The two dimensions fighting over the Trump presidency may originate and stem from the touchy-feely late 1960’s continuing through the 1970’s. This included the influence of the book “I’m OK – You’re OK” which was released in 1967 and sold over 15 million copies. More importantly it may be the true genesis of the self-esteem movement which began to flourish in the 1970’s. This, in turn, led to the idea of the participation trophy and the concept that everyone is a winner.
Eventually the self-esteem movement was introduced into the classroom in such a big way – especially on the West coast – that it eventually led to today’s “snowflakes”, “safe-spaces” and pretty much everything happening in the Universities.
You can look deeply in to the I’m OK and you are OK notions combined with the self-esteem movement and you begin to realize you are uncovering Donald Trump as a genotype.
First of all, he extols his own virtues to an extreme. He a braggart by old standards. But by self-esteem standards he is doing what he is supposed to do. Only he verbalizes more than most would. And if he’s read any of the concurrent books about having a positive attitude, he’s just doing the right thing by, well, having a positive attitude.
He’s also exhibiting the “you’re OK” factors by exuding outrageous positive compliments on anyone he’s around. People who he picks are fabulous by any and all standards and they are all going to do an “amazing” job. This reflects the positive attitude high self-esteem concepts promoted in the mid 1960’s until this day
It’s ironic that he is condemned for his huge self-esteem created ego and his overly positive attitude by a liberal media that has promoted all this crunchy hokum in the first place. It’s no coincidence that Trump was always a Democrat until just recently when opportunism presented itself.
Much of his apparent adoption of New Age malarkey is what accounts for many in the Republican party being so uncomfortable with him. The religious right has never liked New Age anything likening it to a competitive religion and associating it with liberalism. Despite this he does draw a large crowd of evangelicals to listen to his speeches.
The level of confused raw hatred towards Trump by the same people who might embrace the positive attitude and self-esteem philosophies might actually represent self-rejection. Trump is like the anti-Christ of New Age philosophies which show that perhaps these ideas can create a monster who must be rejected. Their internal justification can be rationalized by his ludicrous grab them by the pussy remarks which also trace back to extreme self-esteem issues.
At this late date it is probably impossible for Trump to develop self-doubt or any sort of humility, even fake humility seems impossible to achieve. So what you see is what you get.
The positive side to the man has to be his sales acumen. At the time of his life when he was obviously influenced by the New Age ideas he must have also read both the Carnegie book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People” as well as Napolean Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich.” These were common books to read during the same era if you were taking any sort of college level courses in Business. I say this because he had to learn his salesmanship style somewhere.
Both of these books were extremely popular amongst the non-intellectual class out to make a buck. Combined with New Age philosophies of the era and you end up with Donald Trump.
Trump will always be boastful to an extreme, which annoys a lot of people who do not understand it and cannot see him as someone with nothing more than a positive attitude on hyperdrive. The philosophies of the 60’s and 70’s here are actually taken seriously. And, yes, it’s a load of crap, but all the analysis you see and hear trying to explain it are also delivering a load of crap. In fact, insofar as the haters are concerned, when deconstructed, he is, ironically, one of them.
But the issue now is: does anyone who chooses to have a gun automatically part of a militia?
At the time of the writing, the militia was understood to mean every able-bodied adult male. ALL of them were members of the militia.
What's the deal with this? It seems as if there is a Left Leaning Fascist group growing out there...using all methods including violence to shut down and shout down anyone that isn't in perfect lockstep with their groupthink of what the world has to be.
That group is called the Mainstream Media.
Surely Slashdot supports unicode?
Score: 5, Funny.
(Was going to say "you must be new here," but a low-6-digit uid isn't all that new anymore.)
No. No, they won't. If I have to port software that old to ARM, I might as well port it to Linux or Android.
The question is, how much modern Windows software is ABI compatible with the 486, and doesn't assume MMX or SSE support?
Probably not much. In fact, Windows 10 will not run on any x86 processor that doesn't support PAE, NX and SSE2, and that's been the case since Windows 8.
Don't be irreplaceable, if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
