It is SO "systemd". More of the binary is better bullshit.

If you need a .Net runtime for your shell, you are f*cked.

Since every object type that you'd want to build for *nix systems already exists as Perl or Ruby code, that can be accessed through C-PAN or Git, I really don't see what problem this solves. The problem of how to force a .Net runtime on every machine in existence?

Voicemail.

Black hole.

I have 21-year-old acquaintances who have NEVER looked at voicemail in their entire lives. More so remarkable, because they'd individually had iPhones with a visual voicemail feature, for up to 20% of their time on earth.

You want to annoy my 16-year old? Call on the phone. I expect voice to be a nearly dead medium in a decade.

When you are almost depressed? Anything to take your mind off it.

When you are giddy? You can take on the WORLD! "That'll show 'em all!"

Somehow this observation is presented as a counter-intuitive result from examining new data. We ALL love counter-intuitive results. Comprehending them makes us feel intelligent.

I'm not rooting for Hippie Land to emerge from the wreckage.
Americans will likely slaughter each other in righteous and god-ordained fury for many decades thereafter.

But they will have withdrawn from every corner and space on this planet - where today they distort, extract and oppress as a matter of "interests".

With the US being a bad thing for everybody else in the world, an most of its "own" people?
I'd say that what's bad for the US is good for the sake of humaity itself, and I only brook small exaggeration here.

The removal through collapse, of the United States as an actor on the world stage would be the greatest human triumph since the collapse of the Berlin Wall or the ending of South African Apartheid.

God bless us, each and everyone.
