Comment Re:I thought state and religion were separate in U (Score 1, Troll) 1560

It is quite ridiculous. It seems that despite political correctness advancements, it would still be impossible for an atheist (that is, anyone who is not terminally insane yapping about jebus and imaginary sky fairies) to become president in the USA.

Lets get this straight, people: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS GOD!

One has to be pretty drooling stupid to believe in that child-molesting garbage, yet in front of the people who are supposed to be running this country they have these retarded blathering idiots going on about their magic sky daddies and friends.

It is one thing to make a president swear on some 2000 year old book of BS because tradition. But there no excuse for the rest. None at all.

As an atheist it reminds me that I am not represented and that people would still be happy to come at me with their torches and pitchforks.

Here we go, the usual slashdot moan-fest when there's any Firefox news.

You know what, guys? Get over it.

Who the fuck modded this troll as "Insightful"? If the consensus of this web site is just to take it up the ass while big corps rape us silly... well, I guess that those are the only kinds of people left on this site since Slashdot totally fucked up the layout, added stupid videos and retarded twitter/facebook shit.

Tell, you what. You shitheads enjoy your corporate assfucking. I'm out of here.

Comment Article conclusion is quite a stretch (Score 1) 172

Wow, this article really pulls a conclusion out of its butt. They look at some vague web statistics, notice that Windows 7 has gone up a tad - likely due to seasonal usage differences or many other things - and then draw a wild conclusion that people are using it to get Windows 10?!

They are probably getting kickbacks from Microsoft for posting it.

Ah, so it is that way for everyone else to.

That is totally retarded UI design. Most people would not expect to have to click on the title to load the comments. And that action is already used for expanding minimized articles.

Obviously the entire idea is to get accidental clicks on their fucking "share" button.

Seriously, does Twitter and Facebook PAY for this sort of advertising?

Anything involving Apple is a bit nuts.

But among other things, an Apple I represents one of the early beginnings in the computing world. You can't get much closer to the direct early work of Woz and Jobs. Apple Is are indeed very rare. Supposedly most Apple Is were traded in for discounts on Apple IIs, so few were left in the general public. The parts themselves are rare. Woz chose some parts that weren't even incredibly common at the time - so it is difficult to build accurate replicas. (An Apple II replica, in contrast can be built from mostly from parts that are still available new)

There is actually quite a bit of demand for vintage items that similarly represent various "beginnings". Such as TRS-80s, Commodore PETs, Apple II/II+s, IBM 5150 PCs, etc, but those are common enough they can often be had for a few hundred dollars.
