It would be too difficult to convince the current set of morons in Congress that there could be such a thing as "wireless fraud"
You have flabber?
You don't like the turn Star Trek has taken, so you see it as your Sacred Duty™ to trash the franchise and anything associated with it. Fine! I get it! Now, bugger off and allow those of us who don't hate it to not hate it in peace.
bunch of elbow wanking cockatoos!
Too friggin' funny! Can I use it?
Look what you went and made me do ------>
(I'd put up the beer icon, but I don't know how to get this thing to print two icons...)
Well, if he really is a "good guy", then he doesn't need any back doors, front doors, or windows (or Windows...). All he needs is a gun, because as we all know, "A good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun".
Now, if the bad guys simply disarmed themselves....
...and dumber than a sack of hair.
RjLoQxC -- because I'm informed that the post "must contain letters". So there's some!
Damn, I wish i could upvote you more that once...or buy you a round
Ya know...I get that this is supposed to be sarcasm. But as Herr Drumpf has aptly shown, bad sarcasm is worse than no sarcasm, and there are some things one just shouldn't joke about. There are yutzes out there that will misconstrue sarcasm for instructions.
Apparently the Comedy Store records all performers, and Nish was able to *prove* he did not say what he was accused of. To which the guy complaining said "I know what I know" - i.e. fuck facts [...]
"Fuck facts", the credo of the average Trump supporter.
Well, technically, you do have to be "on" the ground before you can be "in" the ground.
Beer? Check! --------->
Comfy seat? Check!
This should be right entertaining!
You can say "I got married" or "I pupped out another brat" or "my car exploded" to whoever finds it interesting, and the "friend's" list is sort of self-curating.
You know, there is this thing called a telephone....
Users are reporting that upgrading to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update renders their PCs unusable.
And this surprises you how, again?
Well, perhaps you "over-the-ponders" might learn that "Colored" (spelled the right way) hasn't been used on this side of the pond in reference to folks of the Negroid race since the middle 60's...unless, of course, you a fucking racist moron and damn proud of it.
Please try to keep up.
Perhaps not so much evolution, as Darwinism (like in the award...).
How could she ever get a single Enterprise license??
Uhh...perhaps the same way millions (if you believe Micros~1's bullshit) of "users" have gotten their versions without going through legitimate channels...if you know what I mean <wink> <wink>...
It's this kind of intrusive bullshit that turned me from a fairly happy majority Windows 7/occasional Linux user to the reverse of that, to the point where Windows 10 is kept on hand for emergency use only.
YMMV, of course, but for me, I'd only consider using Win7 for "emergency use only". Win 10 is itself an emergency, and fixing an emergency with another emergency just doesn't seem right.
Mansfield bars are mandatory on the rear of trucks in the US but, unlike Europe, not on the sides. Maybe that's something legislators might like to consider.
What? A US legislature of any type passing a law that would cost Corporate America™ money to potentially save lives of the Little People?
Shirley, you jest.
Yes. Pure and simple. Where is the sign up for the firing squad?
The only two that I can think of would be (in no particular order):
--> Bigger, louder, more intrusive and more frequent advertising
--> Backdoors for various TLAs
(As a subset of the second one, naturally there would be more telemetry, which may or may not be considered its own "enhanced feature".)
Who the fuck cares?
Isn't the Department of Commerce one of the three departments that epically failed former Republican Presidential candidate Rick Perry wanted to eliminate -- but couldn't remember the name of?
Bah! You want "None of the Above"? Vote Green.
Herr Drumpf has yet to publicly slam me in a tweet. Where can I sign up?
...Tim Cook showed much more political aplomb than any of the Repo's in Congress. Way to Go, Timmy!
Are you that lazy a git that you'd even consider such a thing?
Surely the way to indicate a comment is with an asterisk in column 8?
No, no! It's a 'C' in column 6! Enny fule no dat!
Well congratulations! You've just written a very detailed comment that is not one fucking bit better than the code it purports to elucidate. Lots of ratchet-jawing about "do this, don't do that", but not one syllable as to why we think it should be n+1 when it is really supposed to be n.
Don't dislocate your shoulder patting youself on your back.
Scares the fucking shit out of me.
Yeah, me too...and I live here!
What about forums, where anyone is allowed to comment, will this board be reviewing individual comments before they're allowed to be displayed?
Well, Just in case this should come to pass, I'll need to get this in fast:
...and Tits doesn't even belong on the list!
After the choices you have "nominated" for PM, I don't evah want to hear one phoneme of bitching/whining/tut-tutting/etc about our choices for President. You have explicitly disqualified yourselves from any high ground (moral or otherwise) in that respect.
Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, but I do not believe for one instant that several thousand emails no longer exist.
I'll pass on the epithet, but perhaps you should ask Colin Powell about emails that no longer exist. I understand he is quite the expert in that domain.
At a press conference Tuesday morning, FBI director James Comey gave a lengthy description of the investigation his staff had carried out, focused on whether Clinton has mishandled classified information, and concluded that "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring a case based on the evidence.
And then you have Republicans....
OK, but what about 10,000 times that? Or 100,000 times that? Now, to paraphrase Everett Dirksen, you're talking about some real money!
Someone without two neurons to rub together put it in the suggestion box.
(But you certainly got the headline right!)
I assume the next thing we will hear is that the FBI has been hacked and all their information is available on some server in China or Russia.
Or on Tor....
If these Merkins (sic) can go round "hacking" anyone they please without a warrant, then what's to stop them from remotely planting evidence on whomsoever they choose, before having them burned as paedos/terrorists/witches?
A: Nothing. Happens all the time. Say, you're not from around here, are you?
Might make a good test of how you on the right side of the pond respond to Brexit.
Well, then, how do you explain Louie Gohmert?, Todd Akin? Tom Tancredo? Joni Ernst? Steve King? (Among others, of course...)
"Requiring companies to build backdoors in their products to weaken strong encryption will put the personal safety of Americans at risk at a dangerous time and – I want to make this clear – I will fight such a policy with everything I have."
Although that was said by Senator Wyden, I'll sign on to that, too.
To you, Lester. Your wit, whimsy, and storytelling skills will be missed.
...is the self-decimation of the LinkedIn user base. All that will be left are a few fanbois with titles like the one listed in an earlier post (e.g. Windows Solutions Solutions Consultant, or Facilitator of Lost Causes or some such).
Senators Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Rob Portman (R-OH) said that they have requested that executives from Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Charter, DirecTV and Dish come to Washington, DC, and explain the consistently poor reviews their organizations receive every year from customers.
Ahh, yes...I can see it now:
Congresscritter: Awright now, Mr. Head Cable Weenie, explain yerself:
Head Cable Weenie: Well, Guv'ner, we wuz just mindin' our own bizzness, 'ere, just tryin' to increase share'older value we wuz...an' doin' a-right good job of it, too, if we do say so ourselves. But then these damn customers started gettin' in our wayz, you see...an' well, we couldn't 'ave that, now could, we, Guv? So we tol' them all to bugger off. And they got all 'uffy 'n started comploi-nin!. That's all it is, Guv'ner.
Congresscritter: Comploi-nin' about raisin' share'older value, eh? Is that all it is? Well, then...carry on. Nothin' more to see 'here. Time for a brandy!
John, you're clearly not from 'round here.
"First Reading" is a quaint Parliamentary rule. In case you hadn't noticed, (or even if you had), we don't have a Parliament, nor do we do First Readings in these here parts....
One of the reasons is that not many of the Congrescritters can read...
