You're not listening to it right.
You're not listening to it right.
All it takes is a quick glance at the URL in question to see that. It's very much a stock ISO of an old Ubuntu release.
The URL could have been: hxxp://sketchy-torrent-site.tld/wiki/FOIA-Hillary%20Clinton%20Does%20Trump.real-legit.torrent.html and have pointed to a torrent that was really a copy of some Transformers movie or whatever. URLs are only meaningful to humans and can be deceptive or -- pinky to lip -- more than meets the eye.
So, I don't see anything really extra chilling about this. It's not an official mirror that got dinged here, people. Sheeh; OP is dumb and this is not newsworthy.
That's some nice advertising you've got there... It'd be a shame if someone decided to block it...
But seriously, okay... you pay off ABP. A large group of users migrate to another ad-block tool... that tool's creator demands protection money... and so on. That, to me, is why it sounds so scummy -- because ABP can only promise not to block for it's own user-base. It's literally, "hey, give us a cut of your ad-revenue or we'll give a free app to people to prevent you from serving ads."
Does this policy undermine their "acceptable ads" option? i.e. ads are now acceptable if they meet a certain technical criteria or the provider has paid protection money?
over-reaction. They're giving a migration path that basically lets you run it self-hosted.
No - Linus doesn't say a *person* is an idiot, but that a person's *behavior* in a particular instance or their snippet of *code* is idiotic. There's a world of difference.
YES. THANK YOU.
I think my point is being made for me
In private companies, Linus would come off as a total asshole...
In my comment, I tried to make a joke where I left off some grammar and... well... people did pounce...
It's the same thing in software... people will pounce...
I've always been scared, and I'm at a very senior level now, that if I didn't deliver then my boss would pounce...
And then I learned that my bosses have always been on my side... and that they *need* me to produce good shit... since that realization, I haven't been afraid, and I want n00bs to understand the same thing... if they need coddling, well... sorry, I've forgotten how to do that.
That's why I love programming and computers.. I can't fuck it up in grammar...
It works or it doesn't work... If it's elegant or not... that's where I hope to have criticism... even in basic grammar... you're making my point for me
Yep, you are right. I accidentally the word "grows".
I have a phantom word problem where, if I think the word in my head as I write, then as I read it back, the word "appears" there, even when it isn't.
But I'm not ashamed to admit I fucked it up
Linux development is done on public mailing lists. Everyone knows this going in. If Linus rants about "your" code in public, he's sending a clear message.
He has passion. Snowflakes don't understand passion.
Why? Because you're a delicate little flower with easily offended sensibilities?
I've worked for all types, and with all types. A little bit of "colorful" language doesn't bother me, and in many cases I'd prefer someone who can come to me and say "Hey, you fucked up, this is a pile of shit" than someone who smiles, gives me calm reassurances about my efforts, and then drives a knife into my back.
Yes, sometimes he goes a bit over the top. But in many cases, it's more a matter of the receiving party needing to grow a thicker skin.
In my career, my skills in direct proportion to the speed at which I was criticized multiplied by directness and the skill of the other party.
As a lead, I really struggle with the special little snowflakes that need to be told how great of a job they're doing and how much they are appreciated and
I'm saying that streaming services have a disproportionately high amount of low-value content.
What does it justify if they don't provide content you want? Don't pay for it?
Nothing of what you said applies to streaming copies of Mad Max.
Mad Max does not inform anything related to a shared knowledge base to build humanity.
You should teach at a liberal-arts college. Your stupid ideas would fit in well.
If his gains are related to the crime, then stealing a $100,000 car and selling it for $10 is a $10 theft. That's not how it works.
Perfect analogy. Well done, sir.
Yes. Ad revenue is the damage. x2 is the punishment.
But the jail term? for a tort? FSM, that is not right.
