Comment Re:anyone vs everyone (Score 1) 220

That's why I keep the 'anyone' material in an offline format, typically not even on paper. Not 100% effective, as was hammered home one Monday that I decided to take as a personal day and wander through Sears while countless busybody housewives babbled incessantly to one another about shit that they regarded as scandalous all around me. I now know more about the sex lives of random strangers than I do my own. But keeping it offline is still an improvement over posting the material to the world's first global communication network. That is strictly reserved for the 'everyone' stuff.

"whine"

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I haven't seen any complaining, only a sarcastic comment regarding inappropriate usage of available skillset. This, of course, follows your post that used nonexistent quotes to insinuate that he said something that he clearly didn't, which you went on to validate using the time-tested formula of psychically knowing what the other person was really thinking even though they didn't say it.

I don't know if you are building a body of work to submit to Fox News as a portfolio or if you are just fucking retarded, but in either case you'll do yourself a world of good in preventing future back problems by getting that retarded chip off of your shoulder.

Fair enough, but did you notify someone after the 120 day point? That way they could fix whatever problem it was that falsely indicated that you were committing a crime, thus ensuring that the system only catches those who are putting other people at excessive risk by violating traffic laws.

I'm guessing the truth is much closer to a situation where you were actually speeding, got caught by the camera, and are now trying to claim the moral high ground. Not an accusation, just a supposition.

Comment Re:Speeding cameras do racial profiling (Score 1) 513

And this is different from a cop pulling the same person over how? Oh, right, the speed camera actually leaves a record of the person violating the law in the first place, whereas the cop just makes it disappear by not recording it. Not sure how race plays into this, unless all rich, powerful politicians and cops in your country are strictly made up of a single racial group.

So your argument is that Flash would still be preferable to developers so they would keep developing with it, and Flash would work well enough to users that they would still be good with using it, but it needs to be forced out because it is older than HTML5 which contains the potential to replicate most of the functionality of Flash eventually. Gotcha.
