Comment Re:Google are a bunch of cunts (Score 1) 65

On the contrary, the Project Zero team reports bugs to us (I am a Chromium developer), and we fix them. For example, .

So let's take that example. That appears to be the following bug, correct?

So that bug was reported in January 2014. The patched version of Chromium, M38, was released in October 2014 - much longer than 90 days. Now as far as I can tell, the bug was not made visible to the outside world until October 2014 - am I reading that right? And, if I am, why wasn't it publicly outed sometime in April - the 90-day window Google seems to hold Windows and Mac bugs to?

I'll be better able to figure it when the cartridge is empty. The savings come from not having to pay eight or ten bucks for copies that I'm proofreading.

They're already online as free e-books, HTML, and PDF, with printed copies available at a price.

IIRC you're Canadian (if in the US you'll need insurance) and should be able to get CrystaLens implants for an extra $2,000. They cure nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and cataracts.

I ran Suse back in 2003 and liked it, but moved to Mandrake because my TV didn;t like it; I was using the TV as a monitor with an S-video cable. Still trying to find a distro that will run on an old Gateway laptop.

Well, unless you can score a pair of hands from the Robot Devil - then you'll be able to write great operas and all sorts of stuff!
