Comment Re:So why is he in jail? (Score 2, Informative) 289

If his big hack of Hilary was a lie, why is he in jail? Shouldn't you let him go home? No crime, no felony, no jail. At least that is how it is supposed to work.

I'm not a super-genius like you, but this is probably the reason he's in jail, you fucking idiot:
"In a statement of facts filed with his plea agreement, [Lehel] admitted that from at least October 2012 to January 2014, he intentionally gained unauthorized access to personal email and social media accounts belonging to approximately 100 Americans, and he did so to unlawfully obtain his victims' personal information and email correspondence. His victims included an immediate family member of two former U.S. presidents, a former member of the U.S. Cabinet, a former member of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and a former presidential advisor, he admitted. [Lehel] admitted that in many instances, he publically [sic] released his victims’ private email correspondence, medical and financial information and personal photographs."

Comment Year of the Linux Desktop?!? (Score 0) 63

After nearly two years since the previous release, the Fluxbox team has released version 1.3.6 to start off the new year. Like most Linux geeks already know, Fluxbox is the long-standing X window manager derived from Blackbox. The new version (announcement) puts emphasis on quality assurance and takes care of fixing a bunch of critical bugs: clocktool problems, rendering long text, race condition on shutdown, lost keypresses after workspace switch, corruption of fbrun-history, and resize and move problems.

It only took two years for the open source community to implement these fixes, meanwhile Team M$FT is still trying to figure out how to optimize their HOSTS files like a bunch of n11bs.

Wilson shot Brown in the car, which has never been disputed. How does blood in the car or on Wilson's clothes indicate in any way, shape, or form that the shots that generated that blood loss were justified? Your genius logic is now stating that a cop can shoot a person point blank for any reason, and the fact that the person's blood splatters on the officer's gun and clothing proves that lethal force was justified.
