Comment Re:Friends don't let friends use Magento. (Score 1) 60

Magento is awesome, don't listen to the haters. Yes, it probably requires a VPS, but a 1gb VPS will handle a fair bit of traffic with Magento's caching turned on. Secondly, you know all those crazy requirements ecom customers want, like their own special fancy way of doing things? Magento is a thousand times more configurable than any of the other OS ecom packages out there, I can't tell you the number of times we've been able to meet a client's requirement just out of the box. Sure, it's huge and complicated, but it's also very powerful, and absolutely devours ZenCart and osCommerce, both of which I've used, and both of which have just the worst imaginable codebase.

This is exactly right. A police officer's testimony counts for more than the common person's testimony when it comes to a straight your word versus theirs. Typically cases brought before the court are more complicated than that, but should something as simple as your word versus theirs get brought in, the copper will win. Of course, should that officer ever get caught lying to the court in any future cases, you'd have an excellent case to get your conviction overturned.

Comment Pirate Party is too narrow a term (Score 2, Insightful) 173

I think the Pirate Party should rebrand itself as the Internet Party, Digital Party or Future Party, some such thing, and just fight for the rights of all things that service the good of the Internet, which is kinda what they're doing anyway, except to the layman, who asks "what the hell has pirates got to do with the Internet"?

Comment How come the BSA can just waltz on in? (Score 1) 958

I'm serious, they're not the government, they're not the police, they're a private company, where do they get the right to storm your offices and start poking around in your computers, counting up all your software licenses? I run a small IT shop and if they ever tried that shit on me, I'd tell them to go fuck themselves in no uncertain terms. Can I storm THEIR offices and have a look at all their computers? Or should I too expect to be told to go fuck myself?


Submission + - More Allegations of Developer Misconduct in EVE

umilmi81 writes: The EVE Online player based alliance GoonSwarm has published an open letter, including screen shots, accusing CCP employees of joining a member corporation, giving himself director level permissions, and then leaving the corporation.

In-game petitions sent to CCP about the incident were subsequently deleted. A forum moderator acknowledged the accusations, and has directed the matter to internal affairs.

CCP created an internal affairs department after admitting developer misconduct on previous occasions.
