Comment Re:Fail policy; fact checking is usually biased (Score 1) 110

This is simply another fail policy; fact checking of late has be shown to to be biased.

Of course it has. And Hilary Clinton is a Reptoid from the Hollow Earth and Donald Trump has been negotiating with gray aliens for the cure to cancer. Do not believe the people who tell you these are not facts. They're biased.

It's not complicated. Zero tolerance just means any infraction. You're trying to be clever by conflating tolerance with blood alcohol level or somesuch. One tolerance would be that one conviction is allowed. It's not complicated.

Also, coffee isn't a drug for the purposes of the law in so far as driving is concerned. Honestly, I don't know what you think you're illuminating here. We probably agree Uber is money pit. But none of the other stuff you said makes any sense.

Same. Only mine was later upgraded with a 16KB RAM card (for a total of 64KB, like the later //e), a Mockingboard sound card, an 80-column text board, and I even did a little hack where I connected a line from the shift key to one of the paddle buttons on the motherboard, so that you could use the shift key like it was meant to be used in AppleWriter.

Comment Re:"Oh crap, other browsers beat us at our own tes (Score 1) 88

The fact that you said "one of the best" instead of "the best" is the point here. Any company that makes a benchmark (or other test) for a product they make never intends for a competitor to come out as #1.

Dumb. Chrome goes through Canary, Developer, and Beta channels before the general public ever sees a new build. You can use Octane on any of those. By your reckoning, of course no version of Chrome ever comes out behind. But what actually happens is the benchmark score bounces up and down with ongoing development of the engine.

Comment Re:Lowest price - shittiest room (Score 1) 140

You know ... I suppose one thing from my POV is that I can't remember ever staying at a hotel where I liked the room so much that I consciously booked the same hotel again, next time I was in town. And if I do repeat stays (ugggh, Las Vegas) it's usually because I have to stay at that hotel for reasons of proximity, and being made to stay there doesn't make me feel like their "honored guest" or anything. I guess I've just never bought into that culture of "premium service" at hotels. To me, my room's mostly there to sleep in, watch TV, and hold my travel bag while I'm away.
