From South-Central Nebraska here, and you are massively full of crap. Sure, there are some mega-corp farms, and unfortunately more each year, as the smaller farmers ( 2000 acres) are getting decimated by things like this.

Sure, there are some rich farmers, but most are not.

But to say most are rich is complete crap.

Take my love, take my land
  Take me where I cannot stand
  I don't care, I'm still free
  You can't take the sky from me.

  Take me out to the black
  Tell them I ain't comin' back
  Burn the land and boil the sea
  You can't take the sky from me.

  Leave the men where they lay
  They'll never see another day
  Lost my soul, lost my dream
  You can't take the sky from me.

  I feel the black reaching out
  I hear its song without a doubt
  I still hear and I still see
  That you can't take the sky from me.

  Lost my love, lost my land
  Lost the last place I could stand
  There's no place I can be
  Since I've found Serenity

  And you can't take the sky from me.

Comment But why so small? 5GB? (Score 1) 212

So they complain about abusers uploading 75TB, but then chops everyone down to a measly 5GB? That's ludicrous. 5GB is 1/15000th of 75 TB.

And I got 15 gigs (Still measly) when I bought my Windows Phone, and they are chopping that down to 5GB as well.

I'm done with OneDrive. Pulled off all my stuff and put it on my Google Drive which still is 15GB. (Of which I'm only using 2.5 GB) I've got 10 TB on my network at home, really don't need these third party services. I'm not a typical use case, I know, but it's still really shitty of Microsoft.

Really not liking the Satya Nadella era of Microsoft.

Comment DDOS is lame (Score 5, Insightful) 99

Never had any respect for lamers who just do DDOSs. That's not hacking, it's just being annoying. Doesn't take any special skills.

It's nothing like breaking through some code or router or something that actually proves that you are of elite intelligence.

Breaking directly into Blizzard is one thing, but just snowing them under with myriad packets just isn't impressive.

Find something else to do with your life.

Comment This isn't just Twitter (Score 2) 54

If it's true that the passwords have been harvested by malware which uploads the victim's browser's password cache, then this is not just Twitter. It's every site you use. The lesson, if you create websites which require authentication, outsource the authentication function to OpenID providers who have three factor authentication (e.g. Google) - or implement three factor authentication infrastructure yourself, which is not trivial.

Comment Re:This fixes a UI failure (Score 4, Insightful) 664

Whatever dude, I'm a long term .NET developer, and run Win10 on most of my machines. But two I do not want to upgrade. I'm getting fucked with constantly with this shit and for the first time wondering if I really want to bet my future on Microsoft. Currently without them, I can't pay my bills, but wondering if I need to make the big jump.

I'm extremely fluent with Linux, having supported it in professional environments for big companies in my previous career. But a bit worried about all the new systemd shit as well, that's gonna make my experience a bit degraded. And no way in hell I'm going back to Systems Architecture/Engineering. But there's really not much from a programmer's point of view in Linux. It's either fucking java or some crappy interpreted language. Was looking happily at Mono, but now that Microsoft's bought Xamarin it's pretty much a dead end.

Microsoft is really coming off as an Oracle-level asshole corp at this point. They need to stop. Really not liking the shitty direction the Satya Nadella era is bringing to them. I think he'll get ran out of town pretty soon, he demonstrates he has no respect for anyone using Microsoft products.
