Comment I couldn't stomach another Hillary speech... (Score 2) 2837

Regardless of how you voted for (Bernie Sanders for me because he seemed like a real person and not just a cosmetic masterpiece), Trumps speech felt genuine and was cool to give others credit instead of just saying "ME ME ME". Asshole or not, he seemed like an actual person and not just a robot with a perfectly strategic agenda. My stomach seriously started to cramp up when I thought Hillary was going to win and I'd have to hear her speak for the next 4 years trying to convince the world she cares. Does she even like movies? listen to music or have a soul? Seems like shes been in politics her whole life and it robbed her of a personality and character which are very important to me over a 'platform' The fact that he has no experience, no one thought he would win and still overcame to win has to go for something. Only time will tell but lets at least give him a year before calling for his impeachment because if he overcame all those odds, maybe he is more "qualified" than we give him credit for.

Comment My friend is currently being stalked/harassed (Score 2) 98

So my non-tech friend who happens to be way too nice of a person crossed paths with a sociopath female who has been monitoring all his texts, calls and tracking him at different locations (and showing up) and then calling his ex girlfriends (or current ones) to let them know where he's at, who hes with and what's being said.. Being somewhat a tech person myself, we set up all new passwords, factory reset, two way authentication, changed his phone number, etc, etc... Now since I am not around him at all times I cannot vouch that he isn't making a mistake which somewhat compromises his accounts but I am pretty confident its outside of our control.. When researching this issue, we have been hearing rumors that people can go into Mexico and can easily get software that can access possibly this 'SS7' hack. The local police have been no help and the FBI has not responded to our claim which basically just leaves my friend having to deal with this psycho. He has also gotten a restraining order against her but she lives in and out of Tijuana and San Diego and we live in San Diego (45 mins apart) and so far it hasn't helped at all. Jokingly I suggested he should just marry her to stop the harassment but maybe y'all have some ideas. So I ask my fellow slashdotters: Anything else we can do to end this 3 year run and possibly get charges to stick against her? Sarcastic replies in 3.. 2 ..1 ..

I know how to do all that n00b. Respect your Slashdot elders, I've been here leaps and bounds longer than you and from the good ol days where we had to everything by hand...Don't reply to my post like I am asking questions in #ubuntu. I know all about apt-get, xubuntu, etc...Go off bubbly boy on your ipad and play some farmville. You talk like the other guy who posts, maybe the same person trying to convince the world that Unity is for the better of Linux. Take a look around at these posts, look at how many complaints. You sound like your the PM (Project Manager) on this and no wonder your trying to defend it.

Don't they get it? We don't #$%&!?$ want unity. Task bar is a must. Moving tray items is a must. Synaptic package manger is a must. Its so complicated to make it look like my 10.10 desktop. I don't want a tablet look and feel. The good thing is that when one distro messes up, another one jumps in place. Whoever decided to treat their power users as bubbly happy farmville users should be 86d from the Linux community. I've been reading slashdot for 15 years and this is my first post which shows how retarded unity is. Die, die, die.....Unity...Die.
