Yep. Print is REALLY dead this time. That said I do miss Byte.
"Deliberate illegal acts should lead to jail time. Law enforcement officers are not above the law."
Yeah, the problem is Barack Obama chose not to pursue the crimes of the Bush Administration. He believed that doing so would cause a Republican backlash. It is an understandable strategy, but leaves no room for JUSTICE. It also hasn't prompted the right-wingers to cut him any slack.
"No, but you do have to admit that this is pretty much the first time a president or administration or party in power has overtly dismissed an entire news network, and actually spoken ill specifically of them"
Nope. In the 2004 election the Bush campaign faxed out dossiers attacking specific reporters and, even, whole news organizations. Bush was also the President who apologetically called a reporter a "major league asshole" on national TV.
> Or set up a firstname.lastname@example.org email that your constituents can use to report anyone speaking ill of you or your policies for "further education"...
I'm pretty sure that was disabled as soon as Cheney left office.
Yeah, well I've seen and heard him make personal attacks. At the Atlanta Linux Showcase he heckled an Oracle representative from the audience, calling him "a scumbag".
That doesn't mean he's wrong about Mono.
They only have two PCs sold Ubuntu and two PCs sold with no OS - none of which are even halfway modern systems. It's almost like they don't want to make money from Linux users. You'd almost think that some large monopoly was using them for a hand-puppet.
"For those out there that think this is a good thing, try to navigate IBM's website."
Yeah, too bad Sun's pages suck equally badly. As much as possible, I've always used Google to search either one.
"The company culture between Sun and IBM are too different for a successful merger."
Success: [n] Chomp, chomp, gulp.
Just ask the former employees of Sequent, Informix, or Rational.
Yes. A lot of the teams I worked with at HAL were spread across the country. So, meetings were almost almost always held via conference call.
And, you're right, they definitely do not use note blocker in-house. I remember a call with the security goons (aka the IES Committee) where it became obvious that the members were holding the real meeting via Sametime. Long pause... clickty click click click... "No, your lab systems are still considered servers. Permission denied."
I'm sure my off-shore replacement will have much the same problem.
They've taken technology from other projects (ie Linux Terminal Server Project) and built a great package. It's being used in schools world-wide. Here's the link:
After a number of decimal places, nobody gives a damn.
