Comment I am the Alpha and the Omega. (Score -1) 171

I saw (sort of) most of the series from about 5 or 6 years old till present...

.

The ABC in Australia - in their wisdom, played the ENTIRE series, back to back, 4 or 5 nights a week, every week for about 3 months.... about 5 years ago.

.

Glad I saw it ALL, Great to see it all back to back, it was a sense of relief and completion.

.

And the Dalek killing robot city snakes are no longer scary.

Comment Ubisoft? = SHIT customer support. (Score -1) 233

I bought Chessmaster 10 and it was a Ubisoft game... signed up for the online tutorials and games at the site - which was a part of the contract.

.

Unfortunately something got messed up in the process with pass words and user names and delays in transmission etc., etc., etc.. and so I was no longer able to use the site and so I contacted them - with my special number and an explanation and asked for them to fix it.

.

Not only did they not fix the problem, they completely ignored my emails to them.

.

Well the game and tutorials are so good that I have personally recommended it to all my friends - and now they all play it too.

.

So fuck UBISOFT.

Comment Oracles gain of Open Office - is a shitty. (Score -1) 88

Yeah Oracles gain of Open Office IS a shitty deal.... it's turned it into a faceless corporate shitbag piece of software, that is run by a faceless shitbag corporation.

.

Now there is Open Office - shitbag free basic version, AND (something like this) :

Open Office Small Office Home Office,

Open Office Professional and

Open Office Corporate....

And there is NO human contact in any of it......

It just smacks of being very antisocial and I for one was rather ambivalent about the Open Office Fork into Libre Office.....

But now I see how "corporately tactless and scumware mentality" Oracle has become and I now see them as a threat to Open Source, as much as Microsoft is to anything.....

Yeah fucking right.....

There are three reasons I despise the Mozilla bullshit artists.

1. They dump a shitty product on the market - that IS fucked and unstable; it's a resource HOG, it crashes so often and it does shit like keeping on running in the back ground after being switched off.

2. It's a 2 way street - they put up a utility for people to use - and through it's use, they gain revenue from sales and advertising. Nowhere in that implied contract - did I say I'd wear their fucking crap programming.

3. It's CORPORATION Mozilla to you Sonny Jim - the big knogs rake in about $80 or 90 million in clear profit - and the forums are filled with stupid cunts and soothsayers (idiot volunteers) like yourself that never endingly say "It's this plug in, it's that plug in, it's this extension, it's that extension, if you recode it like this, or use this program or anyone of dozens of fucking bullshit bits of advice.

The corporate big knobs rake in the cash, while the forums are filled with do-goody good fuckwits and their stupid opinions.

The truth is that Mozilla Firefox is a SHIT program.

And you and all your "Say 10 hail Mary's if the wind is blowing from the east, while you stand on your head and point your arsehole towards Mecca" fucking bullshit advice - you can go fuck yourself.

Your just another idiot from the Mozilla Firefox forums....

Fuck the Mozilla Foundation - their software is fucking crap and their BIG $$$$ corporation bullshit trip while using stupid unpaid slaves....That is customer service that is as bad as that fuckhole company called Telstra in Australia.

Comment The Shitbag Ex Prime Minister of Australia (Score -1) 394

http://blogs.theaustralian.news.com.au/janetalbrechtsen/index.php/theaustralian/comments/blowing_the_whistle_on_hypocrisy/P150/

.

Except for Mr Kessing. In case you have not heard, Mr Kessing was found guilty just over a week ago of leaking the contents of two classified reports that detailed serious security lapses at our airports. Those reports, one of which was buried for two years and never made it onto the desk of a senior bureaucrat or minister, were published in The Australian. Public concern over the exposé forced the Government to commission the Wheeler Review, which in turn led to one of the biggest security upgrades of airport security. If ever there was a case of a whistleblower deserving our eternal praise, this is it. Instead, he is facing prison.

.

More concerned about controlling information than encouraging whistleblowers to expose department inertia and ineptitude over issues of national importance, the Howard Government made sure that Mr Kessing was punished for his efforts. Prosecuted under the Commonwealth Crimes Act, forced to rely on superannuation to defend himself against a Government miffed at a leak, Mr Kessing may end up behind bars for up to two years.

.

There are leaks and then there are leaks. Some are right. Some are wrong. But for a Government obsessed with controlling every bit of information, there are no distinctions. Only stiff penalties for those who leak, no matter how beneficial the consequences of the leak.

.

As much as governments would prefer the media to simply regurgitate carefully crafted ministerial media releases, spinning the government’s daily message, that is not the role of a robust media in a healthy democracy. The very best journalism is a check on government, exposing matters of national significance. Doing what The Australian did when it forced, with the help of a whistleblower, the government to secure our airports, which sit as frontline defences against terrorism.

.

Protecting deserving whistleblowers such as Mr Kessing ought to be seen as a public good. Government departments will lift their game if they understand there are laws that recognise that leaks serving a genuine public interest may be justified.

3 April, 2007 Jail Shrill Prospect For Whistleblower

.

A former Customs Officer who leaked a classified report is facing up to two years in jail. Allan Robert Kessing, 59, was found guilty by a Sydney jury of the unlawful disclosure of information by a former Commonwealth officer. Judge James Bennett bailed Mr Kessing to appear on May 25 for sentencing. Mr Kessing - who had left Customs by the time the report was leaked – sparked a major enquiry into airport security by leaking the report and his legal representative planned to use that as evidence his actions were justified. Sweeping improvements were made to airport security arrangements following an enquiry into the reports claims by English expert Sir John Wheeler. The leaked report was seized on by journalists from The Australian newspaper to blow the whistle on airport security but the journalists have not revealed their sources and were not called to give evidence. Mr Kessing’s lawyer said the case was a matter of public importance but it had attracted little attention. “One of the things that will be very important will be how beneficial the leak of the information was about security for Sydney airport and everyone who travels through it,” the lawyer told the newspaper. “The Wheeler report will vindicate in a substantial degree the fact that the leak itself, the contents of the reports that were leaked, had a very significant beneficial effect.” The enquiry led to the expenditure of $200 million establishing airport police commands and boosting Customs surveillance. A number number of arrests for cocaine smuggling had also resulted. The editor of The Australian, Paul Whittaker, said there was an urgent need for a public interest defence for Public Service whistleblowers at the Federal level. “Rather than prosecuting people such as this, they should be giving them a medal,” he said. Crown prosecutor, Lincoln Crowley, said a prison term for Mr Kessing was “on the cards”.
