Listen to the white boys whine. Did someone threaten your privilege?
Oh, that's ok then. I guess all the women and black people are just not very good at IT.
You are sure that you can see the mental processes of the people hiring, yeah?
Yeah, that's right. It's political correctness gone mad that's to blame.
For fuck's sake......
What an idiotic post. Equality is about valuing people equally and making sure that disabilities or other differences don't negatively impact them. That doesn't mean treating everyone exactly the same, it means, for example, providing ramps for wheelchair users even though "normal" people don't need them. They get equal access, not an equal method of entry.
Now see if you can think about how that idea applies to other cases of discrimination.
Fine. Suggest something better. But leaving things alone and hoping that things will change for the better doesn't work.
So how would you fix the problem?
So are you a white male? If so, maybe the fact you (and I) benefit from the status quo colours your opinion.
Whatever, I don't see "equality through qutoa" as worse than "inequality". Neither is particularly desirable, but at least one of those is trying to do something positive, however misguided...
Missing the point a bit. Try searching for a video that's on vimeo through Google and see if it suggests it. They may show you vimeo results if you specifically ask for them, but for vimeo to become an alternative to youtube the search ranking needs to show no respect to the site hosting the video. Do Google favour youtube or does youtube's popularity put it at the top of the search results?
This is the classic point, continually downvoted here but not rebuffed, that Google search can't be trusted to be fair when they have a product to promote.
I use a moto g with the stock android image on. About 50% of the time when I open a text document with google Quick Office it pops up a dialog with "The document is corrupt and needs recovery" (or words to that effect). To be fair, I haven't noticed anything missing from these "recovered" documents, but it's not what I call working perfectly well.
...until the vulnerability is no longer an immediate threat.
No, you get 90 fucking days, that's your lot! C'mon, I know everyone on here agrees with this, I read it under an article about an MS vulnerability.
Then start suing everyone else who uses the word 'dock' for stealing our idea!!!
Right, so no-one's prepared to put their name to this? Is that becuase of a non-disclosure clause in the Beta programme?
Not clear from your article, or the linked iMore one, exactly who is claiming that this is fixed. Any chance of a bit of clarity? It doesn't sound like it's Apple saying it's fixed, but both Hudson in your article and Rick Mogull in iMore are quoted from when "Thunderstrike" (cool name!) was discovered, not from after patching. So who are these "beta developers", mentioned in your article but not in iMore?
Really? Might want to try catching that then, instead of letting it crash the device. FFS.
Innit! Just look at all the upvotes on this thread....
Where would the world be without you to sort shit out, eh?
apparently "There is only room for 2 players, and both the seats are filled."......
Now you've upset my old delta hf turbo!!!!
Someone needs to tell all the audi drivers, you don't have to slipstream the car in front to get anywhere....
Doesn't extend to those who can't construct a sentence then?
Fire up Lynx!
BURN THE HERETIC!!!!
Are you new here?
No, it's a simple system where you get elected if you get a big enough proportion of the votes. 30% of the votes means 30% of the MPs. It's complex, so I can see why you might have difficulty with it.
The good thing about FPTP is that all your rich mates get to keep running the country and pretending it's because we asked them to.
I love it when a plan comes together!!
No, no, no. This is totally, totally different to MS dropping support for XP, and a load of fandroids will be along to explain how any second, without a hint of irony....
A lot of software engineers forget how important it is to give your product a cool name. I want some of these and I don't eve know what they are!!!
NoScript it. You still see ads then but nothing dances and it's nice and quick.
Yes, you're the guy who posted about microsoft keyboards then replied to himself twice getting more and more irate!! That was cool!
(I've not used node.js in anger so correct me if I'm wrong!)
Yeah, Churchill and our boy's have got a lot to answer for.
We're discussing the Charlie Hebdo cover, not western foreign policy. I see your point, but not it's relevance.
The OP was talking about freedom of speech and comparing someone saying "I feel like Charlie Coulibaly" (a reference to the hostage taking nutjob in the pattiserie) to a picture of Mohammed saying that he "is Charlie" and all is forgiven. I can see how one of those is considered lawful and one isn't.
Bombing the middle east in retaliation would be mental, but isn't really relevant to the question of whether free speech should be unlimited or not.
Are you saying you think people should be free to say anything, including threatening other people, under free speech laws?
You're not equating drawing a picture of the prophet Mohammed with saying you feel like killing Jews are you? In the UK the second would be considered hate speech, the first is legally fine. I can understand and agree with this distinction.
No, we're the United Cyber Force of Islam. United Islamic Cyber Force are a bunch of SPLITTERS!!!
It's SET FOOT, FFS! Or stepped would also work.
And yet people still say they're not secure!
Grow up and use your username. Going anon just to call people names is pathetic.
Wow. Someone's not getting any....
Su-metal has an awesome voice, I read somewhere that the entire project was dreamt up as a vehicle for her. Certainly sounds nothing like a cat being strangled. The little'uns are a bit more shrill but they're there for dancing more than singing.... Altogether they're a breath of fresh air in a increasingly fragmented and insular metal scene!
No. You can tell by the fact no-ones commenting on the story.... Well, except for all the comments about not caring.
Then came and commented on how you weren't interested in it. Cool!
>> Or they could just say they have a problem and admit it, together with an idea of when they can be arsed to fix it. <<
Umm, that's exactly what happened. The problem was Google didn't want to wait the few days between their "deadline" and patch Tuesday. Next time you pull a quote from an article maybe you should read it too?
Well one of you can spot a joke. To the rest, thanks for your informative posts and many downvotes! I'm here all week. Try the fish!
I preferred the wild speculation and opinion tbh.
>> "But you're just reporting the wild speculation and opinions of a noisy minority of forum whiners with no basis in fact"<<
I like the way you backed up your comment with all those references and facts! Or is it just wild speculation and opinion?
I asked for a card without it and they told me very politely to fuck off, so I doubt it.
Yes, but the example code just uses a load of different prefixes on the same domain. Then you just use script to access each sub domain in turn using http and if the browser uses https instead then you know that bit is set.
No, it doesn't. What you're talking about is to do with your attitude to artists and whether you think they're cool or not. Artists change over time and success can definitely change them, but it's much more complex than "successful = bad, underground = good". Step away from that and just start listening to the music. Maybe you'll find there are successful acts you actually enjoy listening to, even though they're trying to make music other people like. Some times when an artist tries to make music people like they succeed!!
Forsooth, good sirrah, for surely that is an impossible task. But nevertheless, one can listen to said track and dislike it without expounding on it's vagaries in the comment section beneath. If one does indeed post in such a manner, then one should not take offence if a gentle ribbing ensues....
