But more to the point, you're a fucking monster, and I hope you die of the most horrible disease one can imagine, so awful that your family literally prays to God every night that you die quickly... but you won't. I also hope the nurses and doctors who treat you are Muslims, and they are nice to you until your dying breath, so you can know fully what a disgusting subhuman you really are, you monstrous ugly piece of excrement.

Damn! A simple, "Go to Hell," might have sufficed.

... one of the greatest explorers in history.

Your statement hit me hard. I would go so far as to say that he and Neil are the greatest explorers in history. Think about it: No other life form can get out of this gravity well on purpose. They touched a completely alien world. How much greater can you get? You can not.

Something about the moon landing brings tears (not of sadness) to my eyes. It is an enduring milestone for the entire human race.

That totally applies in the USA as well.

Please tell us how you'd go about getting off the "no-fly" list, and how people get on it in the first place.

Are you implying that the US no fly list has entries based on web-browsing history? I'd genuinely like to see evidence of that. I looked briefly but didn't find any that seemed credible.

I can't wait for the day when you are too old to provide any kind of value and we can just push you into a meat grinder.

Eh? You mean that is NOT already going to happen? My life so far has felt like I have been in a meat grinder and I do not imagine it getting any better when I am no longer able to contribute.

Shit, they already took my retirement from me. The money from that financial meltdown in 2008 came from somewhere and the banks were not hurt. Oh, it was just my retirement. Drop me into the meat grinder now. I am tired of this shit.

401k? WTF ever happened to Social Security? Oh. I remember now. When I was about 11 years old, some nice old man got up in front of Congress and whined about having so many billions of dollars laying around doing nothing and that it should be used. Well, it was used but the people who used it did not want to give it back, so they played games with Treasury Bonds.

Regardless of any of this, I will die alone and destitute without a single person caring that I am freezing or starving to death.

Hurray for the caring society we have created!

Interesting that I can type faggots, but not n1ggers. (lameness filter encountered)

Let's see:

Holy shit! I never knew the word n1gger was prohibited. Now I need to find out what other words I am prohibited from saying:

I am just not enough of a hater to have a wide vocabulary of hateful words. Let's see if these make it through.

Weird. I would love to hear why hateful words to black people are censored but hateful words towards Jews, Native Americans, etc are not censored. So odd.

Raymond Chen has a recurring theme on his Old New Thing blog of "What if applications other than yours did this?" What would battery life or capped data plans look like if every application felt a need to send location telemetry home all the time?

Well, you are in luck. A fully loaded Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will last up to about 48 hours on a single charge if not actively used. The same phone, with no Google Services, apps, or anything other than a bare metal Android install will last up to about 28 days on a single charge if not actively used.

Heavy usage of a fully loaded Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is roughly 12 hours. Heavy usage (how can this be?) of bare metal Android is about a week.

Comment Re:{game of the year} (Score 1) 113

I'd switch to Linux if it could play {game of the year}. Until it plays that game without much Wine hassle, I can't see myself switching.

I play some fairly popular games on Linux. Natively. (DOTA 2, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Borderlands 2, etc)

I play some some fantastically popular games under Wine in Linux. (Skyrim, Dirt3, etc)

I bought Grand Theft Auto V. I can not play it in Linux either Natively or under Wine.

You know what? My freedom is more important to me than Grand Theft Auto V or the ~$60 I paid for it. I abandoned it all when Windows 10 came out.

If your freedom is not terribly important to you, as it seems not to be for the majority of people (until it affects them), then feel free to let your computing platform be dictated by the mass media.

Essentially, what your statement is saying is that you do not care if you are monitored, tracked, tagged, and bagged. Well, you may care, but you care less than playing {game of the year}. Seems pretty low to me.

For myself, I do not care who uses Linux... but that Poettering (SP?) character is sure making me wish there were more controls over developers who touch infrastructure. I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER FUCKING WINDOWS PLATFORM. I have rejected it for a reason. Why are people bringing such vertical and brittle shit to Linux?

Meh. Random thoughts. I apologize.

Mobile will never fully replace the PC market, yes your phone might have plenty of CPU power, but when you get to your office you're not going to work on massive spread sheets or do hours of data entry on it.

Careful there bucko. Nokia almost started eating into that market but Microsoft utterly destroyed them. I had a Nokia N900. It essentially ran Debian. At the time, I was praying for the next phone to have USB and Display port connectors so I could use my phone as my primary computer.

Yeah, duh. Of course I would not be doing hours of spreadsheet work on a resistive (eh? Firefox assumes this is not a word either. That is the NAME of the type of screen. Deal it with Firefox assholes who try to limit our vocabulary.), not capacitive, touch screen. At least the keyboard was already physical. You would plug a keyboard and a monitor into it.

Microsoft saved you from that terrible terrible situation. Your poor thumbs. ;)

And if it on a PC it is way to easy to pirate the movie.

On the bright side for content consumers, it does not matter if it is easy or hard to pirate the movie since someone WILL pirate it regardless of difficulty and then share the results with everyone who is not so technically savvy.

Definitely a solid use DRM there. ;)
