Comment Dell Precision (Score 1) 154

I got a precision with a touch screen and a Linux preinstall (No windows) a couple months ago and the thing works great. The default wireless doesn't connect so well, though. I found I get much faster wireless if I use wicd-gtk. Touch screen works with Ubuntu, as well!

Clever click-bait advertising:

One of the things an Apple Mac can do that Windows 10 machines can't do -- at least easily and completely legally -- is run both Windows and MacOS. Interestingly, it's Apple's Boot Camp utility that makes this feat possible, which essentially enables Macs of all flavors to boot directly to Windows 10 and use the Mac as if it were a Windows machine. Usually, this is a fairly straightforward process that works well, with the resulting Boot Camp configuration doing fairly well at mimicking a Windows 10 machine with a few hardware limitations. As of the 2016 MacBook Pro machines,

And the Bait after the Advert

it appears that Boot Camp might be causing some serious and uncharacteristic audio issues. It appears that the new speakers running on the refreshed MacBook Pro line aren't working so well with the obsolete drivers provided in the current version of MacOS Sierra Boot Camp. Users are reporting the issue on all models of the 2016 MacBook Pro, and they are not experiencing the issue in MacOS. Virtual machines using Parallels or other software are also not experiencing the issue, providing more support of a bad audio driver causing the problem in Boot Camp.

I understand /. needs to 'keep the lights on' but can it be done without completely selling out?

I did a contract with Sun, just before they went under. The employees were quick to tell stories about how they used to hire magicians to come and entertain on the campus. There was this one guy, sat a cube over from me. Near as I could tell, his job was to sit on the phone all day boasting about whatever next conference he was going to and how he was a certified black belt. That was the only time I'd ever heard anyone talking about it. At Sun. Just before they went under.

Fortunately this tally is only indicative of the Internet-savvy demographic. Not everyone believes everything they read on the Internet is true.

The real world systems like the Electoral college keep one demographic from declaring what the laws will be for everybody.

Well Sanders won the popular vote, but not the GOP's version of the Electoral ( Super-delegates ) . If you want to count by Popular vote then Hillary *still* wouldn't be there.

As for looking at the election machines now? The evidence has been damaged or tainted by this point. It wouldn't stand up in court.

Good for you. If you're happy I am happy.

What I was referring to in my post was defining a search for opposing the rising minority power over the majority in regards to a very small segment of the Human condition.

As one example:
Creating an environment for abuse by perverts trying to get carpet permission to enter restrooms of the opposing gender for their own gratification.

Also, how to keep kids from exposure to age-inappropriate concepts, leading to premature or inappropriate life choices.
