I should have been more specific. I don't install apps that require network access which have access to contacts and SMS unless I see the source.
You can install your own trusted dialer app or better yet, build and install the OS. I have all network access firewalled by default just in case I miss something.

Just wow. Have you thought that what you are mistaken for lazy, things like not asking for a raise of more hours has nothing at all to do with being lazy but everything to do with self confidence. What about those who just don't value money as much as you do? I know a few people that are far from lazy but they have chosen jobs that pay minimum because that's what they love doing. You are pretty arrogant to think that everyone making a shitty wage is inferior to you.

Submission + - Sourceforge staff takes over a user's account and wraps their software installer ( 11

An anonymous reader writes: Sourceforge staff took over the account of the GIMP-for-Windows maintainer claiming it was abandoned and used this opportunity to wrap the installer in crapware. Quoting Ars:

SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.
