Comment "IT Guy" is not so bad (Score 1) 736

What I hate is being called "Techie" and being treated like I'm some kind of inscrutable little dwarf. "Oh, you techies!" "How can you expect me to click a little picture on the screen? I'm not one of you techies!" "Is the computer turned on? How would I know, that's a techie thing!" Fecking morons.

IT Guy would be a step up.

I mean, really, Apple did it back in the day because their customers were too stupid to know what a CPU was-- I mean, were too busy creating and thinking differently to care whether they had a 68K or a PowerPC computer.

But why now? And for Linux?!!? Sweet fancy Moses, if you can't figure out what type of binary you need, you're just not going to get too far with the average Linux distribution.

The fact that this guy got as far down the development path as he did, before he noticed all the people screaming "GO AWAY! WE DON'T NEED THIS!!" is a clear sign that he's got some kind of cognitive issue.

Ryan-- dude-- go solve a real problem. This wasn't one.

Any change, technological or otherwise, that reduces the influence of the idiots in this state can only be a good thing. Sweet merciful Christ, just look at our senators, our representatives... Napolitano is the first governor in decades that didn't end her term in disgrace or prison, and she gets promoted out-of-state. McCain is our sane senator.
