Memset CEO gets female biz-leaders' award from IBM

Poopie McStinklestein

No title.

"She pointed out that as she has got more "feminine" in appearance post op. she has found it increasingly difficult to be taken seriously in technical discussions."

I guess that's why gurus have beards.

Max Planck Institute punts 'hot, young housewives'

N/t

"Specifically, it more or less says"

I'm slightly completely outraged at this.

Native-Linux music player Amarok gets major overhaul

Poopie McStinklestein
Unhappy

No title, pointless.

"Some features, such as the player window or support for databases other than MySQL, have been removed"

Oh, fuck no. I despise MySQL - it's just junk. Amarok devs - please keep support for Postgres.

I never run anything that requires me to use MySQL as the backend.

The differences in the SQL language between the two are tiny - it can't be hardly any work to make it play nicely with both.

Wireless comms and the end of civilisation

The other thing

"The other thing about wireless communication is it tends to be a two way thing... so who you gonna call?"

Meh, I'll just play music, and espouse my worldly views and wisdom on 40 metres.

BNP membership list leaks online

Poopie McStinklestein

Well, that's them scuppered

Well, that's them scuppered for ever then. No-one else will ever trust them again, and sign up, and so I predict they'll slowly disappear.

Course, that could be what the poster wanted.....

Adobe pinballs 64-bit Flash Player 10 alpha into Linux orbit

Thumb Up

As a 64-bit Linux Freetard

As a 64-bit Linux Freetard who occasionally watches stuff in Flash, I'm glad. Now, if Sun would release a 64 bit JNLP (Java Web Start) proggie for 64bit Linux, we'd be doing well.

Still sending naked email? Get your protection here

Alert

I'm amazed that

I'm amazed that no-one's mentioned the excellent http://getfiregpg.org/

It runs in Firefox, and when it sees a valid chunk of PGP key or encrypted message, it uses Javascript to give you an import/decrypt link.

Not as secure as other systems, no doubt - but a lot easier for newbs.

Black Helicopters

I've often wondered

I've often wondered how a "No-bullshit party" would do. Sensible treatment of motorists, IT issues, privacy, etc.

Someone post a GPG public key here, and see who responds. :)

Half of Brits abuse apostrophe's

Poopie McStinklestein

A title is required. Why?

Next time someone misuses you're as "your silly", answer them with "My silly?".

It's guaranteed to confuse them.
