Comment If you can't figure out how to tweak (Score 1) 588

Windows and remove unnecessary files, you probably aren't going to notice how much free space you have on your flash drive anyway.

The whole point is cloud compatibility; you don't need a TB of local storage anymore. Things have changed, though it's always interesting to note what proportions of the posting /. crowd are still living in their mom's basements in 1996 !

Comment This latest pitch for immigration reform... (Score 1) 689

Could be viewed as just another way to ensure cheap labor and corporate masters.

For all the talk here about foreign students paying their way, and how great it is to make "friends" with your former enemies from abroad, I have to wonder where you all were when the Chinese MBA's started buying up US companies and replacing their staffs with Chinese speaking immigrants, and where you all were when the massive outsourcing devalued tech and manufacturing jobs.

You will serve your corporate masters well in the new world order !

Comment Re:They don't do much (Score 1) 150

So your objection is the inherent impurity of altruism itself ?

Why shouldn't rich people pay big bucks to ride out the Apocalypse they're afraid of, the one they've helped bring about ?

They should what, be able to do it for free ?

Or would it be more "altruistic" to just give these shelters to the poor - oh, THAT would certainly go down really well...

Comment When you look back in 11 year increments (Score 0) 727

Hardware that is so obsolete is ridiculous.

In the real world, we upgrade and adapt to remain competitive.

People clinging to 11 year old hardware and OS's are simply incompetent. Sure there will always be niches where it's simply unnecessary to upgrade, but those are few and far between.

I wont even touch 11 year old hardware; it's junk.

Antiques are certainly nostalgic, but I'm not in the business of nostalgia, I'm in the business of keeping my clients competitive and able to get the work they need done, done.

There are people who look ahead, and there are people who look back. I live in the present while looking always towards the future, and successful businesses do too.

It really IS that simple.

Comment What about the "religious hatred" of gay people ? (Score 1) 1160

It's remarkable how extreme and outrageous many religious people are when it comes to the statements they make about gay people, much of it is outright defamation, and most of it is just plain false and slanderous, and obviously designed to foster hate.

I say let all these religious hypocrite assholes get exactly hat they want - but they aren't going to like it applied to themselves one bit.
