If you see a troll post, treat it like an Xbox 360. Just do a 360 and walk away.
If you do a 360 you would end up facing the same way you came making it quite impossible to walk away unless you walk backwards.
Unless, of course, that by 'do' you instead suggest we have sexual relations with a games machine.
I find that most people I switch to Linux love it...
it doesn't require a re-install every couple of months.
Hmm I'd say this issue can actually sometimes be even worse on Linux.
While you may not need to be reinstall it, it will usually request to be updated quite frequently and this is often a hairy process for the non technical.
I have lost count of the number of times where I was asked what was meant when the updater threw up some odd message. Examples include:
"Unable to find expected entry [some component] in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)"
"ERROR:root:Dist-upgrade failed: 'E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks.....'"
"subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 101"
"Could not calculate the upgrade"
or simply a basic can't find that message like: "failed to fetch [some component] 404 error"
Sure, people who post here are often quite able to deal with these kind of messages but my mom certainly can't.
When I wasn't able to get there physically it was often easier to simply ask people to install the latest version from
scratch rather than to update.
The original COD and UT99 games worked wonderfully right out of the box
The original COD, while a great game, had a great big bug that occasionally made players essentially invulnerable during multiplayer deathmatch.
As I recall it was a case of the hitbox calculations getting haywire.
I had an awesome video where I showed off my 'übergamer skills' by wiping out the entire opposing team on my own - multiple times.
Not a great feat when it turns out they cannot hit you with neither guns nor grenades.
To be fair, it takes far fewer towers to cover all of Finland compared to the United states
Yes, but the US also has vastly more population. And, more importantly more population per square meter.
Finland comes in at the 201st place with regards to pop density at 16 ppl per square km. The US has 34!
What the hell does it matter that the US is big? The cost is amortized over the number of end users you have.
It's not like rail or power lines where you need right of way; all you need one single location in each area for a
You guys have on average twice as many people in a given area who need access to cell phones and yet you
still manage to get your ass severely beat by the Finns with regards to coverage. Just accept it: Your phone
providers suck - hard.
