Comment Re:No goalposts moved - kernel is kernel (Score 1) 218

I think most people don't care. 10 years ago I was udderly shocked on here seeing all the hype about smart phones when they were new while bashing Windows. Um, hate to say it but Windows is hell of alot more open and less proprietary than a droid anyway as sad as that sounds. Don't give me the crap about source code either. The fact is carriers lock the shit out of everything.

My point is you all didn't care and bought them anyway

Comment Come on use a real OS Linux folks (Score 2) 218

Linux is too popular and destroying openess. Let me tell you about the virtues of FreeBSD the free as in beer OS. Yes you heard Free Beer! We got that. It's time to free yourselves to an OS that respects beer. Linux was great growing up in your youth of mountain dew at college after using your Windows training wheels. Now it's time to graduate to free beer Freebsd like a real middle aged man.

Plus no one uses it so you can impress chicks too on being Uber hip. No Google, SystemD, or any other interests other than DARPA giving you TCP/IP which that and ipf make BSD the still defacto network operating system

six years ago, a group of college students (for class credit) followed a CRT TV (GPS unit embedded ) from recycle bin to its final destination. it was never recycled
since the GPS continued to work. they lost the signal after it left San Juan when it was sent outside the USA.

How much do you want to make a bet it landed in the Atlantic Ocean?

Comment Tell your TL to man up (Score 1) 148

It's his job to be in 6 hours a day to be in meetings. Not you which is what seems to happen in an office. Alot of companies love to eliminate that title and have the uses, PMs, IT leadership, and have them interact directly with the programmers instead to cut costs. So you spend 5 to 6 hours talking about what you are going to do with little results. Working from home forces a Sr programmer to be a lead anD go to guy.

Using this title and making him a supervisor will give you the freedom back to do your job. Hey Mike can you do X before Wednesday sorry I promised the client etc? Your answer is to ask Bob the lead?

Don't take them.

2 months clean and part of my super negative thought cycles are now gone. They are somewhat back but manageable. SSRI s permanently change brain structure. They stop working after several years and can permanently ruin your sex drive the longer you are on them.

SSRIs work for just several months repairing damage but can cause other damage
