Comment Re:I'd like to thank the leader of said nation-sta (Score 1) 667

Much of what was 'revealed' by the Wikileaks releases was already known by the media. The leaks only acted as confirmation. Over the years, these stories emerged, then the media seemed to run dead on each one. If they had performed their jobs of investigative journalism - seeking out stories, developing and following up leads, looking for inside sources - then perhaps Hillary Clinton wouldn't have made it as far as being the Democrat candidate.

As I read elsewhere, they seemed to have taken the following action: "It's the job of the media to cover stories. Cover the stories with a pillow until they stop kicking."

"The Navy denied that a procurement official "acknowledged that additional licenses were necessary for it to distribute BS Contact Geo to its users." The government admitted that it had purchased 38 licenses, but "denies that the software licenses were 'limited,' as alleged by Plaintiff.""

Then why did they buy more than one?

Because government is full of ignorant spenders who don't care about the taxpayer dollars they waste.

Happens to my wife's iPhone 6, too. It happens just randomly enough to be noticeable but not enough to reach the "I must do something about it". I may have to escalate this beyond Level 1 Help Desk (me) and to someone who may be able to actually do something about it.

Comment Ikea? (Score 1) 44

If it's made by Ikea, that should read 'The vehicle's stripped-back design and lightweight materials mean it can be assembled by one person in "four hours". It took my wife and I 16 hours, got half way through and had to go back a bunch of steps, we lost some parts and no we're seeking marriage counselling.'

Yep. I've been using Linux off and on for 20 years and these days I hardly even touch it, not just for the points you manage but also because the one thing Linux distros had over Windows was performance, and that's evaporated. Even the allegedly small footprint distributions are slower on every computer I've tried them on than Windows 10.
