Pissing off customers, telling them that they better buy support in perpetuam or else they get the gloved hand treatment or need to go somewhere else.
Looks like Oracle is now eating the seeds.
You will also remember the Ron-Paul Doom Level Economic Crash which is increasingly looming over the near future horizon like real-life version of The Thing On the Doorstep.
You must be living in Sweden.
Radio Assange FTW!
And an old story on alt.tasteless
Let's see your government control-rays get through that!
They can get latex-covered fingers up various orifices whenever you look at them wrong, why would they need control rays?
What's with the overexposure of "Wifi kills better than $THREAT and more insidiously" meme lately? In the last couple of days two persons talked my ear off bleedingly about the nefarious effects of digital microwave energy in the ether. Said nefarious effects being all well known to the sciency circles which are, however, unable to speak because their righteous voices are being ruthlessly ballgagged by "industry power".
On the other hand, I have been spared such nonsense the whole last year.
Creeping Califonization or Something in the Daily Mail?
TETRA merely uses the old carriers for digital instead of analogue signals
I tried to explain something about digital signalling in the time domain being exactly the same as analog signalling in the time domain if they are mapping to x GHz in the frequency domain, but to no avail. This digital shit is DANGEROUS with all these sharp corners, man!
"I can't complain about the arrest if the police regard them as real guns."
That's not the kind of spirit that will keep that country going.
"We at S.A.M.S.U.N.G. are not happy with your performance, Mr Dong. Your Galaxy S5 was not exactly ... a success!"
[A Worldmap with highlighted FAIL points appears out of nowhere]
"Do you expect me to add more rounded corners?"
"Choose your next witticism well, Mr. Dong. It may well be your last...."
It's hard to admit that one is only being used as a conduit to hoover up loose cash coming from suckers and badly managed pension schemes, all driven by the relentlessly burning heat of our socialistic money printing policies.
As is well-known, one of Tobin’s first students to be conferred a PhD after he repaired from his Washington follies to Yale was Janet Yellen. That was 1971. If Keynesian economics in a national bathtub that was not at all a closed system was nonsense even then, it surely is nothing less than a laughingstock in the blooming, buzzing, churning global economy of today—-a place where the source of the marginal supply of labor and capital cannot even be pronounced in Washington, let alone be measured, calibrated and factored into a policy equation.
Yet here is Janet Yellen at a Congressional hearing yesterday faithfully lip-synching professor Tobin. She has not even learned any new jargon in 43 years!
“In light of the considerable degree of slack that remains in labor markets and the continuation of inflation below the (Fed’s) 2 percent objective, a high degree of monetary accommodation remains warranted,” Ms. Yellen said.
This was all by way of justifying the lunatic proposition on which the Fed is now operating: Namely, that for the 68th consecutive month it kept the money market rate at zero—a condition that has never previously occurred in all of human history. Well, outside of post-bubble Japan anyway, and its evident how well that’s working.
It depends on the workplace.
"Haram started kidnapping the daughters of West Coast executives and selling them into slavery, attitudes might change."
I don't know how more
retarded incoherentyou can get. "Responsibility to protect" progressive bombing runs and all that jazz come to mind. What do you want to express with this kind of stupdidityunclear proclamation?
"If random violence were perpetrated by random obscurantists right here, attitudes might change."
"If victims were blonde white girls instead of brown-skinned ones, attitudes might change."
"If these things were happening right here in whitey land, attitudes might change."
I dunno, please enlighten me.
You can also specify HOW things would change. Consider that I do not consider the maintenance of a "kill list" by black presidents as "change".
I wonder if that french software house from last week "outrage of the week" section was up to something?
Wide open, eh?
Say no more, say no more!!
Hush! Just put him on the President's Personal Kill-List (updated every Wednesday!)
If the basket is very strong, I am sure we can justify SIL 4
Fukushima is EVERYHWERE!!!
If Apple is still "top dog" in 2020 either a major nuclear war occurred or the competition is asleep at the wheels and serially driving off cliffs.
That prediction is not exactly about putting one's credibility on the line.
I, for one, predict that the USA will be a burnt-out economic basketcasket suffering increasing tendency at defederalization by then. P = 0.7556
You can say it was because you were LGBT, but "they" will say you were fired (or not hired) for some other reason.
Having a job at company X is not a birthright, even if this idiotic and self-defeating idea has grown on some people.
C ... oh!
It was Putin's own biker gang (Night Wolfes) wot done it!

It is - if the certifcate chain has not been compromised. Don't use COMODO or DigiNotar shit. Preferably use your own CA.
"Neo. This may be hard to believe but... The Matrix was created based on open-sourced worm simulations...."
What is wrong with just using chroot?
chroot doesn't help you in packaging a runtime configuration; indeed it forces you to into additional configuration complexity.
Meanwhile, the real problems pile up.
Needed: Obama-Putin Summit on Ukraine -- Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, May 04, 2014
The buck stops with you, Mr. President. If you want to stop a bloody civil war between east and west Ukraine and avert Russian military intervention in eastern Ukraine, you may be able to do so before the violence hurtles completely out of control. You need to take the initiative and do it now.
We recommend that you publicly disavow any wish to incorporate Ukraine into NATO and that you make it clear to Moscow that you are prepared to meet personally with Russian President Vladimir Putin without delay to discuss ways to defuse the crisis and recognize the legitimate interests of the various parties.
Let us suppose you are confronted with the following scenario: Tokyo provokes armed hostilities with China over the issue of the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands and then invokes Japan’s mutual defense treaty with the U.S. to draw the United States in. At that point, Russia weighs in on China’s side. What do you do? And, more specifically, what do you do when you cannot get through the Kremlin switchboard and are reduced to having to leave Putin a voicemail?
“if also addresses alleged currency manipulation by Japan”
Abenomics, the fêted idea of banishing deflation forever, and which has not truly destroyed the Japanese economy is based on printing money like you have a special paper diarrhea. Ditto the US which Quantitatively Eases like a roadtrip to hell to hide any unbecoming problems at least till pas the midterm elections. If that is not currency manipulation on both sides of the Asian pivot I don't know what is.
Well, it seems there are very large chickens coming home to roost presently and very quickly. MORE POPCORN, PLEASE!
Just because something is intelligent does not mean it necessarily wants to do anything
Picture AIs streaming endless archives of football games to their data centers while they stroke their chips&beer perceptrons.
Penrose can't into understanding that minds are not immaculate theorem provers but made to chase down eatable rabbit and fuck the neighbor's bitch.
A good sci-fictionary read in the spirit of Stanislaw Lem from back then (i.e. 1986). It might even appeal to Mr Bong.
The Wager by Christopher Cherniak
The Portrait Programs Project grew out of hyperinterdisciplinarianism of the famed Gigabase Sculpture Group, in turn stimulated by recent cutbacks in government support for the arts. The National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Science Foundation had jointly funded the Gigabase Sculpture Project to foster the literary/musical genre of composing genetic codes for novel organisms. Later, artists trained in recombinant DNA technology designed massive Brancusi-esque statues of living cytoplasmic jelly. However, Art For Art's Sake objectives of these giblet sculptors were compromised by precautions necessary after discovery of the "Gogol's-Theorem Bomb" that threatened to get loose and jam all DNA replication in the biosphere; not even viruses would have survived.
No. Quantum computers are good for the following:
1) Factoring large numbers
2) Rapid searching in databases
3) Simulation of quantum processes
Otherwise they are mostly useless for any calculation of importance in the macro world.
"True AI" is anyway fucking bullshit. It's like saying that you will finally attain "a true combustion engine".
I can't remember him doing much research in that arena. He could talk about cooking or gardening next.
What is arxiv
Approvingly citing Che and using "neoliberals" all wrong? It can't happen.
They also attack technological cripples in tech autism land that are differently abled. THAT'S UNFAIR!

“There’s this wonderful outpouring of creativity in the open-source world,” [virtual-reality pioneer Jaron Lanier] said. “So what do they make — another version of Unix?”
[Jef Raskin, who created the original concept for the Macintosh] jumped in. “And what do they put on top of it? Another Windows!”
“What are they thinking?” Lanier continued. “Why is the idealism just about how the code is shared — what about idealism about the code itself?”
Having everything ass-backwards, even 10 years ago. Criticizing what you pretend to stand for.
I hate these people so much.
There is everything right with interpreted code.
Premature compilation is the root of all inflexibility. It is also an historical accident because machines used to be small and weak.
But as a language, it was strongly disliked by students.
Frankly, this is still the case these days. And judging from cow-orkers, the people who go into computers would like to be able to write working programs with the same attention and care as they put in writing tweets. Frankly, they are in the wrong domain.
The whole compile thing compared to just running it seemed wrong to them.
Of course, and this is why REPL-supporting languages are good.
The question is, why does XP even NEED support. After more than ten years, should it functionality not be restricted by safe & secure?
Perish the thought.
"The report notes that the two firms have been developing the platform for more than two years."
We quickly hacked something together, but we ran out of locktite. SHIP IT!
Maybe they should first know what they are selling and how the market will look like before they go down the road of pumping out "stuff".
"Tintin au Congo" comes to mind, now retitled to "Tintin en EU"
And politicians selling shovel-ready projects.

I do not think it is a good time to da that shortly before a bubble burst, innit?
I worked in France Programming for BNP Paribas
I know right?
All the beautiful ones are getting hired by state, arrive at 09:00 and leave at 16:30...
Those incidents sparked worldwide condemnation and social media outrage. Perhaps the same thing might happen after this story is published?
OUTRAGE OF THE WEEK!

She still looks like she's going to keel over and slide down the solar panel any second now while the male representatives of the human race are like "dude, what?"
It has nothing to do with american uptight Warriors Against Fun and feminazis battling rape culture they detected, It is because of pr0nfilters. Too young to remember the discussions being had before the War on Terror?

You misspelt "pushing extremely expensive electronic-enhanced fluorescent tubes to consumers via the political backdoor of green regulation".
