Re: You need some Win8 consulting then?
If that is the case then I suggest that it's Microsoft that needs the consultant.
Re: The Lefties won't like it
"I'm I suppose an anti-authoritarian (can't be a lefty with that view)..."
While I agree with your main point, I just wanted to point out that you can be a 'lefty' and be anti-authoritarian. While the political spectrum in the U.S. tends to be portrayed as a single axis (left-right), in actuality there are two axes (left-right, authoritarian-libertarian, respectively). Personally I suspect that this is because virtually every U.S. politician is a 'do what I tell you to do' authoritarian jack-off.
I'll just leave this here: www.politicalcompass.org/
The VIP handler..
Wait, why fire the handler? Was he/she in on it, or just spite for not being able to read the VIP's mind?
Re: no nukes is good nukes?
I'm not so sure. Having light-water reactors is precisely a reason to have these reactors as well. They'll use the waste as fuel and produce electricity to boot, solving both power generation and waste disposal issues.
Sounds a bit low considering the way some people boast about Apple's cash reserves. I'd recommend 0.5% of their current cash reserve value per day.
Yes there does need to be a sign, it's up to the owner of any given premises to determine what is allowable, not some over-aggressive jackass looking for people to smash in the face. Seriously, people need to grow the hell up with all the threats of violence.
On a side note, I wonder how long it'll take for police forces to adopt these glasses?

What if it can't make phone calls (like most Apple 'phones')?
You've got the wrong room, the Apple talking point and mutual masturbation conference is down the hall.

Re: Where does the carrot go?
Where does the carrot go?
I won't answer that directly, but I will say that it's required that you bend forward...
Getting paid (not payed) to fuck lots of women while surrounded by cameras and various technicians, being told what to do, and having to do multiple takes of the various scenes, I don't really see much in the way of the so-called motivation in that.
Just a guess but I would say that the average plot is likely to be 'boy meats girl'.
Re: £500,000 goes a long way
Exactly, it's not a case of 'do extra time and keep your ill-gotten money', it's a case of 'do extra time and get out still owing money' and rightfully so.
Re: Better graphics card than the GTX TITAN?
It's extremely unlikely that any console will ever sport a $999 discrete video card and you either need to work on your trolling, or need to put an ad on a singles site for your lonely brain cell.
Re: May I be the first...
Except that by their logic copying = stealing.
Re: Like Prozac?
Personally I think it's more like Ipecac.
Re: Pushed into a corner ...
Here is the important bit: both you and Macmillan are full of shit.
Re: My immediate thoughts re. The Minister
That is pretty much the definition of the Harper Conservatives, well, except you left out control freak.
Re: Innocent until proven guilty?
I always thought it was: Innocent unless proven guilty ?
Re: No Unicorns but
Seriously? All you can come up with is a thinly veiled racial slur?
Let's see, one was providing a legitimate file storage service (complete with safe harbour provisions), the other was using that service to distribute files they had no legal right to distribute.
Re: @ Dr Ian Holdsworth I for one
I, for one, would not trust any government on the face of this planet with a fleet of space battleships.
Re: I can see where this is going:
"Then the treehuggers will come and ..."
Regardless of their views on the environment, they aren't 'tree-huggers', they are neurotic hypochondriacs.
Re: "Sinofsky preaching success, it akin to Bin Laden preaching pacifism." @dogged
"Microsoft promote their profit margin, just as Google and Apple do (albeit a bit less ferociously and with less litigation). Is that terrorism, ShadowedOne? If so, is Larry Page a terrorist too?"
What in hell have you been smoking, more to the point, do you plan on sharing it with the rest of us?
In case you are posing an actual question. Has Microsoft (or, for that matter, Google or Apple) engaged in a campaign to terrorize a civilian population, no.
Re: "Sinofsky preaching success, it akin to Bin Laden preaching pacifism."
What does 9/11 have to do with it? Bin Laden promoted hate and aggression, it was a perfectly valid juxtaposition.
...But enough about the U.S...
Re: Its is amazing
I attribute it to years of hearing language mangled by various people.
Re: Here in Canada is MUCH worse....
I know Harper is a cold fascist bastard, but no it's not that bad up here yet. We are not permanently monitored and the police still require a warrant to get access to your data.
Re: It figures...
"But for a country so into god you would think that US leader would assume that god is snooping on them all and so they will behave or be judged."
Well, much like how the smartest dealers never sample/get hooked on their merchandise, I'd say most of the bible-thumping politicians don't believe the religious/pseudo-religious crap they spew. It's mainly to con the hard-of-thinking and easily led into voting for said politicians.

Re: @ pollock
Well...I don't know if this is the same OffBeatMammal but I found this: "This was my third MIX (I joined Microsoft a few months after the first) and once again I spent most of the time behind the scenes."
The post is from 2009 mind you, for all I know he's working somewhere else now, if it is the same OffBeatMammal.
Re: Android phones running 2.3 still being sold
"Till then we can only dream."
You might want to focus on waking up..
Re: Deletion obsession
"the number of editors is declining"
I wonder why that might be...
It might have something to do with Microsoft's domination of the desktop market, that's just a shot in the dark though...
Re: So, this tool is not for cracking but for sniffing
Isn't that rather like saying that once I have the key to the front door, I can pick the lock?
Re: *** STOP PRESS *** Business makes money.
Businesses are supposed to make money yes, well let's get more specific and say that a businesses generally exists to make a profit. Charities exist to provide a service (and/or enhanced research into various medical issues). A Business (by definition) != a charity. Wikipedia is a listed *non-profit* charity, they are not supposed to make a profit, although like many big non-profits it seems that the higher ups are raking in sweet salaries while the lifeblood (those who contribute articles and useful editing) get sweet fuck all.
Re: Effective solution
Great idea, maybe next we can mandate a 2 year prison term (and the obligatory huge fine) for people who are late returning library books, or maybe a retroactively applied prison term and large fine for all those people who made mix tapes for their friends in the 80s/90s...
