Anyone born in the 20th century knows the grandparent is idiotic as of course I don't see green screen dumb terminals hooked to a massive mainframe for basic word processing.
Yes offices did this as mainframes were real systems. Not toys for serious WordPerfect use.
Opterons? Huh. IBM 370 mainframes didnt run these and modern mainframes don't run on Xeons or opterons either.
...did y'all run out of single moms to sue for $millions or something?
That's getting pretty desperate for income when you're trying to screw over a vendor because they're too dumb to have a proper IT department...
So you prefer Kang over Kodos, then?
Seriously - they both suck, and are singularly unqualified for the job. Most of us with more than two working neurons know this.
The problem is two-fold:
1) There is a huge mass of low-information sheep who don't really bother with politics (either by ignorance, stupidity, or laziness), but will nonetheless do whatever they're told by their ideological 'betters', mostly to look good in the eyes of their social peers - hell, there's even a satchel of soundbites and pre-digested 'debate' techniques that are supplied to them.
2) There are also two masses of howling hyper-partisan ideologues who each abandon logic and reason in order to 'win' at all costs.
The sad part is, the aforementioned masses comprise the majority of our populace. I'm certain that the US isn't the only country that has this affliction, but as the US is among (if not atop the list of all) world leaders, what happens here will affect the rest of the planet one way or the other. I fear that no matter who gets it, it will be to the detriment of us all.
I know on my part? I happily voted third-party (yes, I'm that disgusted with both the major candidates), but I live in a state where the outcome is pretty much predestined (thanks to the hivemind living in Portland, Salem, and Bend), so I could have written in my dog as President, and no one will notice here.
Don't talk back?
Yeah... because, as we all know, buying a genuine big name brand makes things completely safe...
Nope, but it'll make it a hell of a lot easier to get the warranty honored when you can show them the fried genuine part.
Some do, some don't. The ones that do usually don't have adequate insulation somewhere in it, or was never burned-in/tested.
It's not proof that all counterfeits will catch fire, but the odds go way up under such conditions.
If Apple was truly concerned they would issue a spec for free.
Why bother releasing a spec for what is essentially a glorified rectifier? Fuck sakes, any *competent* EE student can make a clone-off charger from a working genuine one.
The problem arises when you get cheap fly-by-night little Chinese "shops" that pop up on Alibaba selling untested and shoddily-produced (and barely 'designed') crap for like $1/lb. Sure, occasionally someone shuts one down, but three more will await you the next morning. Buy a big box of the ones that look passably genuine, sell them on Amazon for $20/ea... profit!
...and #2 is going to become a *lot* more common, thanks to growth in IoT.
Wish they'd have paid more attention to crap like this back in the late 90's when the whole idea first surfaced on a serious note (e.g. JINI).
If they do it on social media, it's their perfect right to do so. Your point?
Allow me to introduce you to the concept of professional liability. When you, as a trained professional in a field, give false or misleading information - you're employer can be held liable for any harm that results.
Then it is up to the employer (and/or jury if it gets that far) to make that determination and set liability... and not government edict.
They can do. Just not while they're pretending to be health care professionals.
So you think there is to be only one government-approved guide to all healthcare decisions, right?
Mind, I'm not an "anti-vaxxer", but I am pro-speech. The vaccination controversy, no matter how well/poorly-founded, does exist, and trying to end it by government force is not only a stupid tactic, but sets a very, very, VERY bad precedent.
(also, Nurses *are* health care professionals, for fuck sakes... you don't get to disqualify them as such just because you don't like what they say.)
So hairy you want MS html, MS Css, things that only work on win32, etc?
Bill Gates is what caused MS to focus on being proprietary and monopolistic! He was the one who broke ASCII so you needed dos2unix and unix2dos on purpose to make porting hard. He made Sco Xenix broken so it would be harder to port apps to solaris and irix.
You may hate the new CEO but he is open sourcing things, supporting Freebsd and Linux to azure, porting PowerShell to Linux and Ubuntu to Windows, creating ms code editor to Linux and Mac OSx, and Android and mono development to visual studio 2015.
Bill Gates would reverse this.
Personally MS is making much better applications. Windows is the only issue based on 2 things which a QA team and less spyware can fix. Keep in mind your phone and Browser do the same things. If MS needs to fund this they should sell different versions
Fanboy cheerleaders coming up
Freebsd 10.3 worked fine from your beloved OS before upgrading.
Never ever upgrade is a common SOP of IT since things always break. Sorry but just because you like BSD doesn't mean it's magical and laws of complexity do not apply.
Have any proof?
People not successful always quote this and blame others and not themselves for not being wealthy.
But fact is the so called inside doesn't care. They got theirs and that's all that matters. Go create a business or work like they do for the same results.
Only God can make random selections.
