Comment Clouds - because they are so substantial... (Score 1) 142

The characteristics of a cloud are not ideally suited to reliable data storage. Clouds are well known to be ephemeral and to change their size, shape and density according to the dictates of the local climate. Furthermore, clouds are much less substantial than they appear and can be blown away by the winds which spring up apparently at random - a whiff of senator's breath/wind can blow away a cloud. Clouds can evaporate and leave one defenseless in the glare of whatever it was that just zapped your cloud... Clouds are out of your control... Clouds do not have long life spans... Clouds become distorted and sometimes appear as fog.... We all know the fates of those with their heads in the clouds... So, don't say you were not warned!

There I've said it - while you were all just wondering what face to put upon it...

.....Slashdot is run by Americans, after all, and the vast majority of our readership is in the U.S..... There they go again... 'vast majority' (of around 5% of the world)...like it is an impressive number or something... It is one thing to be proud of your nationality (but aware of your position in the world) - but quite another to be defiantly and parochially hillbilly... and smugly content with it...

Comment Google voice opens to all? (Score 1) 185

Google voice opens to all? This must be some new and previously unknown meaning of 'all' that means 'actually only the minute percentage of the world's population currently afflicted by an accidental affiliation to the United States as a consequence of some act of sexual intercourse - resulting in impregnation - of two persons of diverse gender located between Mexico and Canada... Yes that's right - about 5% of the world.... If 'all' is about 5% - then you don't need many for a ruling majority in the US do you? Oh wait....
