RedHat Is Not Linux (Not any more...)
Drinking and posting again?
"Such a genius would have to find a way to execute every politician traitor currently exploiting terrorism to demand weaker encryption and greater surveillance."
Can we vote for this genius?
God I hate that name...
If it doesn't have pickaxes, dynamite, cakes with files in or a pot-bellied stove that conceals a tunnel, then it's just a lounging area.
That, I would like!
Replace ads with a nice fishtank or perhaps a potter's wheel.
It would appear that the US politicians are at last admitting the the government are absolutely useless

shurely l0l0l0 Letsbe Avenue?
So much for 'Viruses attack Windows because of it's popularity'...
...But you can't find it, right?
"Now we just need a bacon angle..."
You should always have one in a well-stocked toolbox.
Coffee with bacon in it? Oh dear...
Don't worry about the hackers- it's the Crackers that are important here...
"Windows is not suitable for any application where trust in the operating system or the company supplying that operating system is required."
Even MS themselves say this in the quasilegal blurb of the EULA...
" Metro is a steaming turd bolted on to something that was reasonably stable."
That is unfair and inaccurate.
Metro is the steam bolted on to something that was a reasonably unstable turd .
"If you drive a forklift truck you have to have a retest every three years."
Probably because of repetitive driving at 5mph in a 30 zone...
That begins to explain some of the problems at MS.
Come up -the ship is sinking.
"Someone wrote a poem about it once. It starts:"
Ha Fleeg, Har Fleeg- shurley, as any fule kno...
Windows 10 is an abacus.
"Virgin - not available"
Virgin do ADSL just like the rest. Did you ask?
Nasty cough you have there, Dido.
If that's not a snoop-sounding name...
"Since when is Law Enforcement an intelligence agency's job?"
If not that then what?
Oh, of course- keeping themselves in a job.
Sod Off HaxxOrs- because backups.
It's time for a bit of chickenwire over the clink?
Imagine the surprise they would have felt if the warhead(s) had gone off next.
It's a shame that ALL country's governments have so many idiots running things.
Just wait until it goes on late-night Dave or UK Gold... you'll be lucky to get the same Doctor each episode.
Just a handbasket...

A Govt Dept: Hey MS, we think your Win10 may have a backdoor, and we won't buy it until you let us look at the source code.
Microsoft: You agreed to buy it. TPP says we don't have to show you the source anymore. Pony up.
"Check Point reached out..."
Don't. Just stop.
"Give people supported, functional software to run businesses with!"
Leopards, spots, etc.
They aren't on in every jukebox in every pub every night ever...
Arg! for the 80's!
Bob Marley version?
"The important question here is, why would anyone keep a zombie in the garage?."
Living it up on the loot of millions.
"Since we're doing pedantry, ..."
Famous last words... "...the wings stop producing life..."
I'm sure there's a word for this.
"And if your software is designed for controlling low-level hardware and therefore requires direct hardware access (which neither WINE nor a VM can provide) AND requires Internet access?"
Then the hardware will probably fail the Win 10 test (ie is more than 2-3 yrs old...)
Face to face.
So now they have your details and your face to put in the database.
I hate to say it, but this is why we can't have
nice things flying cars.
If it's not a Z80, it's just a petrol-pump controller chip.
Reminds me of the Depeche Mode hit - 'Reach out and Punch Face'
"Er, it's one of Wilde's!"
