microsoft are trying to get win10 refuseniks to panic at the "loss" of their free "upgrade" option and voluntarily upgrade while they still have the chance.
In a few weeks, they'll "have a change of heart" and decide to continue offering it for free after all, and continue with their increasingly aggressive attempts to force people to install their spyware whether they want it or not.
expect them to go way beyond just trying to sneak win10 in to unrelated updates, if they haven't already, they'll soon start issuing win7 updates that introduce subtle instabilties. of course, this will partially flop because it'll be hard to distinguish from normal operation.
disclaimer: i use win7 solely for gaming and nothing else (and i don't allow my banking or credit card details to go anywhere near windows* - all steam etc purchases are done from my linux macine). There are some features from win10 that I wouldn't mind having, but not at the price of advertising, spyware, and other malware built in to the OS, and the inability to disable useless features like cortana (which is partly spyware and partly useless-i-have-no-fucking-need-or-desire-for-voice-control), or the inevitable transition to a walled-garden app-store (with other vendors increasingly locked out).
steam on linux is becoming an increasingly viable alternative to win7. by the time win7 is completely unusable, there's a reasonable chance I can convert my gaming machine to steam on linux (or steam on linux plus wine - i used to use wine exclusively for games until i built a win7 gaming box, most games worked fine).
* or android, either. there's no way i'm trusting either google or an insecure and easily lost or stolen device like my phone or tablet with my credit card, financial or other private/confidential information. I'm not missing anything, ignoring the uninstallable google apps, almost every android app i use is GPL or MIT/BSD or other free software anyway.....and 90% of everything is crap. In the case of app stores, it's 99.999999%.
There was that one time... I was at a party and joked to my buddies "Why do people always say they're going to pick up a woman, but they never do? This is how you pick up a woman.", then turned around, grabbed the nearest cutie and thew her over my shoulder.
Then I carried her out of the apartment, down the street to my apartment building, up the stairs and through the apartment, threw her on the bed, tore her clothes off and fucked her brains out.
I never actually asked her for consent, but she was giggling the whole way there, so, I dunno... does that count?
tea & coffee cups are drug delivery devices. ban them too. so are boxes or bags containing chocolates. and cans/bottles of flavoured soda water, with or without caffeine.
ps: i don't think you're in any position to be criticising others for "irrational" behaviour.
do you whinge as much when people breathe Coke or Pepsi breath in your face? Or candy-breath?
it's not smoke.
but that's irrelevant compared to my self-righteous rage.
even worse than those vapetard hipster arseholes are those fucking kids breathing out on cold mornings. that shit looks like smoke too and i want to punch the little turds in their tiny fucking faces.
You really are illiterate, aren't you? We made the plans in your own JE.
Slashdot. My consulting company's timecard. Google. Does not seem to matter where I go. 88% packet loss has been happening most of the day.
It would be interesting to see my Karma dip below "Excellent" again- but I think I've gotten blocked from having MOD points. Haven't seen any in over a decade.
Do you still beat your wife?
Right. I'm a 20 year old faggot. I've been posting on SD since I was 10.
I seem to be getting some rather severe packet loss today.
The fact that women can and do tear down entire, functional and productive organizations and destroy mens careers like this with some tears and stories is why they shouldn't be allowed to participate in the first place.
If he assaulted you, you should be down at the police station with wounds you received defending yourself. If you didn't defend yourself, then quit asking us to take your claims of assault seriously.
This shit has to stop. These bitches need to start being publicly identified and shunned, along with the organizations that coddle them.
Seems like it at my parish. Of course, with the way the folk group bounces between Latin, Spanish, Tagalog, English, and all the others in Malo, Malo; you'd never miss Whoopi.
We've had some seriously tense discussions at my parish over a couple of Archbishop Sample's recent radio shows on the subject of Sacred Music in the Liturgy- especially seeing how often Dan Schutte features in the 8:30 Mass (yes, complete with the hymn he ripped off from My Little Pony).
Not that surprising considering one of the world's most productive observatories is in Vatican City.
Waste not, get your budget cut next year.
