There's a video of the student -- and his teacher -- describing the discovery, a story which Miles says his friends at high school listen to with "a mixture of jealousy and boredom"
"During the second compromise, all Linux Mint ISO download mirrors were pointing to the same Bulgarian FTP site (IP: 220.127.116.11)"
Was I the only one who read that as "Nokia Introduces Windows Toilet"...
It's early but... I really wanted to leave a memory dump...
4500 are just the number they are "letting go", in the following days you will see a larger drop in the "kept" people that will be fleeing the sinking ship...
UNLEASH THE HOUNDS!
(filter was telling me I was yelling, well fuck it, I was yelling)
AND SEND THE TROLLS TOO!
(I know, that is a bit redundant, but funny shit none the less)
First, Microsoft is the Newt Gingrich of software companies... wow... nice
Second, Why do must you call Balmer a gorilla, it insults gorillas everywhere...
In other words we will take the Warren Report, change the name from Kennedy to Swartz, feed it back throught the MIT Paper Generator, and provide it everyone. Proving, that our lack of action in the previous year provided us with the ability to have an annual discourse on our probable deniability, fully exonerating us of apathy, poor judgement and a full disclosure of our tenacious mendacity. Thank you, I'll have my tea now.
And by the by, in their own tongue... FECK'EM!
Let's go a level in...
I did this too for my daughter in her second year of college. After bringing the Winxp laptop home fully infested with spyware. At the time I was using mepis. Quickly showed her around and sent her back to school. She had a few issues, but her school's computers had OpenOffice on them so no issues there. She was virus free for 3 years, playing her mp3s and sharing photos etc. and the techs at the school loved it that someone other than they used linux. Her senior year she got a mac - so instead of saying "I have a Linux Box", where she would get looked at by others saying "WTF???", she could now say "I have a mac", and they would give her a sympathetic look and pat her on the head and say "We understand".
The point is she understood what she wanted to do and figuring out how to do it whether or not it is Windowsx, Linux or MacOS is not that difficult anymore.
Operating system... just kidding, I am fully aware it is alive and well and doing great things...
HOWEVER, it would make more sense and get them MORE DONATIONS if the giant "Donate" button on the top of the page ACTUALLY took you to the place/page you can make a donation instead of some monotonous page about their good works and why you should donate.
Just sayin', but the obligitory dead os thing was funny.
Perhaps you should give Vortexbox a look. I took a customer's throw away computer ( a dell dimenison 4300) and tested vortexbox so I could rip my family's various cd collections into 1 big collection to back and store for safe keeping. A little tweaking of the configuration had me ripping in no time. With 7min being the average for audio cds. It is very nice and had I not just been using to rip cds for storage, I would have used the server aspects Vortexbox. Just keep swapping the cds out until you have run through them all
I tested 1 movie, and it worked fine as well. I was very impressed. Give it a shot.
Exactly, it is quite possible he has wanted to update, wanted to relenquish administration, but has not wanted to go through the process or speak up about making the change.
Also... after testing Win8 you will realize that Win8 is SP2 for Win7. Except for WinFS we will never see WinFS.
You can make your own, I have been using this since version 2 - it allows you to make a DVD or you can just copy to a usb key.
Disk crisis, please clean up!
