I'm fine with Wayland...
As long as it still runs all my wonderful diverse choices of Unix desktop environments.
I was up at 2 AM last night (2016-08-12-02-00 EDT) in upstate NY. It was dark and clear, the moon was down. The Milky Way was clearly visible. We saw meteors every 20 seconds or so. Some were truly impressive.
without rooting your phone.
If I am a nerd why on earth would I own a device on which I do not have root access? I have root on all my devices.
This is incredibly dumb, because,
1. Any real nerd would know how to grab the video anyway. If it plays on your phone, it is already on your phone and you can save it.
2. Any real nerd doesn't use some crappy website and app that restricts what you can download.
This is probably the reason that Clinton was using her own email server: the government email systems sucked because they were run by incompetent people.
Does this "excuse" Clinton? I don't know. But at least she did what she needed to do to get shit done, which is more than what you can say about many people in government.
XMPP is an open standard supported by dozens of messaging applications on every platform in existence. I use "Conversations" which supports end-to-end encryption.
Who posted this article? It is truly uninformed.
What does this have to do with Digital Equipment Corporation and its poorly scaled logo ?
Just because someone says something sexist or funny does not make him a "misogynist". I know lots of people who say sexist stuff, some of which is true, but no one I know actually hates women.
Thanks, Slashdot, for continuing to misuse the term.
A few months ago Google must have made some change to their maps, because Firefox on all my boxen goes crazy and chews up oodles of CPU. Here, mapquest, and openstreetmap still work well.
Flights per year in US: 800x 10^6. Assume 2/3 of those go through TSA.
Average time spent in line at TSA: 20 minutes
Average human lifetime: 40 x 10^6 minutes
800 x 10^6 * 2/3 * 20 minutes / (40 x 10^6) = 267 human lifetimes
The TSA wastes at least 270 human lives every year. Even if we had no security at airports, terrorists would never kill that many people EVERY year.
That does not even factor in the billions of dollars that it costs to run the TSA.
Whatsapp is just a modified implementation of the XMPP (Jabber) standard. I will stick with standard XMPP and choose from the dozens of applications that support it. Thanks.
Most of these malware articles are terrible. The articles don't mention the operating system, they don't mention the method or vulnerability being used to propagate. They are mostly useless for an administration who would want to stop such malware.
For me to do my offline backups.
