I don't want an EV.
I'm not going to BUY an EV.
A vehicle that doesn't run on fuel has limited range and utility. I don't want a car that is on a leash.
And if Obama or anyone in DC thinks they can force me into an EV, they can SUCK IT.
Indian Outsources call us all the time. They get quite angry when they find out they are talking to the people they want to replace.
Lately they fake their phone numbers on the caller ID to force me to answer their SPAM calls by pretending to be a 304-xxx-xxxx number (West Virginia).
In India the Caste System still rules (despite being illegal) and they don't think much of West Virginia.
They get quite insulted and curse in Hinglish when you ask them what part of West Virginia they are calling from.
Because this plan will allow Gawker to continue, perhaps even under the same management. Thiel won't want that.
I am not a lawyer, clearly, but it seems to me that Gawker isn't entitled to bankruptcy protection in this case just to dodge the court judgement since the court judgement is the ONLY REASON THAT THEY ARE INSOLVENT as a company.
Thiel and Hogan's legal team will have a filing before the bankruptcy court on Monday to throw out Gawker's petition and to stop the sale.
The appropriate filing would be for Chapter 7 Liquidation and a court appointed Receiver put in charge of Gawker (thus firing the management) for the purpose of preserving assets needed to pay the judgement.
People are sick of these perpetual price increases. Cable is the only product I can think of that is constantly decreasing in value yet always increasing in price, well above the rate of inflation.
Enough is enough.
I cut the cord back in July, and I've not missed it. And better yet, my dollars are no longer fund channels like MSLSD or CNN.
Most people wouldn't use ad blocking if the advertisers didn't allow malware laden ads be served to their PC's turning them into mindless drones for a botnet. They could fix that problem easily by turning around and vetting ads. Or if the ads weren't so obtrusive and annoying either. Bet we'll see within 3 months that they're reversing this stance, or within a year it shuts down.
Remember when the New York Times decided to put themselves behind a Paywall? That didn't last a year. I suspect the same thing will happen here. People don't like ads. The answer isn't to block adblockers, the answer is to stop annoying the shit out of your visitors that they would WANT an ad blocker!
Why can't they be sued by the victim? I guarantee over a billion a year is spent on malware removal!
Nope. If you want to block my adblocker, fine, I won't go there.
I find NO ad acceptable, but if web ads acted like newspaper ads and sat there, didn't try to distract me from reading, didn't take over my screen, didn't make noise, flash, throb, etc, I'd TOLERATE it.
These days, ad networks are so laden with malware and viruses (when is Google or another ad network going to get sued for not vetting content?) that an ad blocker is antivirus for your web browser!
Yep. Reddit isn't serious about anything until she's gone.
Anyone who ever subscribed to Star Wars Galaxies experienced this exact kind of management. SOE endlessly would apologize for their "lack of communication" then proceed to continue on their destructive changes no one liked not altering their course one degree.
Tier 1 are never more than script and flowchart readers. They can't solve anything needing anything more than "reboot your computer".
The Three Laws of Telecoms:
1. They will Overpromise
2. They will Underdeliver
3. They will Overcharge
These have proven true over and over and over again year after year. Telecom providers, be it phone or data are the seedy underbelly of the IT industry.
Sourceforge might as well be The SCO Group now with what it's done with it's reputation. And I don't see how bundling spyware with GPL'ed code isn't a GPL violation.
I know I'll never download anything there again.
What is the difference between buying a fully leveled character and using a bot to make one?
And I've played grindy MMOs before, when you get good at it (the grinding) your actions aren't easy to tell from a bot anyway.
They keep telling me that Christians are violent fascists and islam is the Religion of Peaceâ
