The porn industry will decide if this flies or flutters, I'm looking forward to the result!

I want that too!
I want two of those Doomsday Devices.
ad revenue is vital??
"the ad revenue is vital to a diverse publishing ecosystem" Since when?? Since when is publishing a web page such a major expense?? Sorry, but we have delivered our precious to the ten-percenters, the very same bastards who used to sell used cars to blue rinsed old ladies, Scruum.
They robbed Slackware's handle
...and pissed me off. Scruum, the twits..
Re: Cruz and Carly?
How 'bout Trump and Bernie?? Wouldn't THAT be a hoot!? Both Hillary and Cruz would fall face first into their breakfast mush.
Re: I can only imagine the afterparty (and spot the sideloaded Crysis pun)...
I wonder if the host country gets to swipe the methods of the winners? It would sure be worth more that a few thousand bucks,
Access for Linux anyone??
Someone answer my prayers and tell me that we will have MS Access database for Linux? We have never had an
Access killer app for Linux and that is a huge block for adoption of Linux in the office space.
"You realize Android is made by Google and slurps everything you and targets adverts based on that by design? At least Microsoft pretend to ask first."
You young whippersnappers don't know of the days when a month's worth of heavy usage on AOL could cost $500. Google can slurp all they need of my itty-bitty life. I doubt any of us are double-naught spies, with some huge need for privacy to protect democracy for us all.

Screw HP. They robbed me and beat me with their fine line of products. It's a good thing I am not in possession of the nuclear football.
Re: Haters gonna hate
I don't understand the down votes. He spake the truth, deal with it.
Re: They did their dash with me
"While it's easy to get riled about it, it's just as easy to forget that they have no obligation to supply those services - it's not like you entered into a pay-cash-up-front-for-service type of contract..."
I guess many of these responders never paid out hundreds PER MONTH for AOL services and connecting over a phone modem.
Follow the money
Simple, really. If the server is her private property, then everything on it is also her property, even if it's spinning rust. Once out of office, she can hand it all to a ghost writer to pen her next book and earn a gazillion dollars. Plus, all of that privately held data is HERS and no one else can use it without paying a large fee.
jus' wondering what the exposure would be.
Arizona?? Did someone mention fruits and nuts? They have very little water and should only be a truck stop or two there to service the folks heading east from California before it slides into the Pacific.
Re: Either that or...
It would have made GREAT SENSE to allow users to click on a desktop icon to turn on the shopping feature so that Ubuntu would have gotten s little bit of pass-through revenue. That wouldn't have cost a user anything, and they would have gotten a warm fuzzy to contribute knowingly. Maybe there wasn't enough swastikas and goose-stepping to consider that idea. I do know I got kicked off the Ubuntu User List for proposing that, NOW they want to change?? Fuck 'em, they can kiss my royal ass.
Re: Either that or...
I'm not holding my breath waiting for an apology from Ubuntu for tossing some of their best users off the mailing list for complaining about this issue. Getting rid of their "List Nazis" would be a good second step.
Ubuntu built my hotrod
"I wanna luv yah!"
Re: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Taste of a Shit Sandwich
Lucas certainly knows "Life is a shit sandwich. The more bread you have, the less shit you have to eat"
I hate Jar Jar so much
That I have to quote Star Trek at him:
"...to the last, I will grapple with thee... from Hell's heart, I stab at thee! For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee!"
I thought Ted was spot-on
" it is not on a par with the famous "series of tubes" misunderstanding from "Techno" Ted Stevens back in 2006."
It is highly likely I will not be buying anymore Seagate drives. Mine fail way too soon.
Re: good ole Arizona
Not to mention all of the California used car salesmen that roosted in Phoenix.
Legalize ALL drugs. Evolution in action.
Use existing laws stupid people
It's easy, arrest anyone hiring an undocumented/illegal worker. The fact that no one mentions this means the fix is in. But, they sure as hell won't risk illegally entering the US if there are no jobs. I mean damn!, this is so obvious.
OK, quick edit. Have Sarah AND Ashley headline the show. You guys wouldn't be able to count all the money that would roll in.
A podcast without Sarah is like a day without sunshine. Like Anonymous says, we don't forget.
"Maybe that's why they called the fire department and not an ambulance?" I bet it was called to have a water cannon salute to the Sword Fish, followed by several minutes of quiet meditation with doffed hats. I wonder if someone is going to take the deceased fish "fallen hero" to a Taxidermist for proper mounting and display in some local pub? Fish and Chips fund-raiser anyone?
"Isn't it every American's right to arm bears?"
I thought it was "Isn't it every American's right to bear arms?", but what would the bears do without their arms??
t's likely it was a relatively concentrated store as the it only takes a very little to be effective."
At the water treatment plant that I worked at, we received concentrated chlorine solution, pumped into holding tanks stored outside within a chainlink area, where is was diluted to 5% in order not to be considered a hazardous material. It was effective and relatively safe then. Plus, when properly diluted, it tends to gas less.
Software freedom by Richard Stallman. I don't know which is scarier.
"Linux is the kernel, GNU is the OS." No, it's not.
"The operating system interacts directly with the hardware, providing common services to programs and insulating them from hardware idiosyncrasies. Viewing the system as a set of layers, the operating system is commonly called the system kernel, or just the kernel, emphasizing its isolation from user programs. Because programs are independent of the underlying hardware, it is easy to move them between UNIX systems running on different hardware if the programs do not make assumptions about the underlying hardware. "

Please don't spread that f'ing LIE.
An f'ing embarrassment.
Re: Oh... how original...
You beat me to it, a responsive Google Love Doll would be the ultimate product to rake in the bazillions. Just don't let MicroSoft screw it up. Please, keep it Open Source so it can be "dinked with" and modded.
"Now CPM was a nice and lightweight system..."
You betcha, and it basically filled my needs. GeoWorks was another. It ran fast on an i386.
Re: What's the problem?
And I would never install Linux on the desktop. Why kill yourself for nothing? The only thing you ever want to work is WINE. And if I need Linux, why hello Virtual Machine..."
I haven't used Windows since Win95. I use only nvidia hardware and nvidia drivers. I only play games that support Linux. No wine here. I haven't looked back.
Re: And you're all missing the loody obvious...
"What exactly is a get-go ?" It's old fart talk. Nothing to see here, you young'ins please move around the old geeze until he gets moving again. :)
Re: Ceres bright spots iluminate without sun light
It's the Flash Light vines. They are blooming this time of year. They have been trying to attract Earthlings to come and visit them for years. They get really hungry during this stage of their reproductive stage.
Harvest time on Mars
I'm quite in agreement with Ceres. Here, on Mars, my Ham Bushes and Blanket trees are ready to harvest. I plan to plant Nubile Space Maiden seeds between the rows and that will be my "bumper" crop. They will keep me busy during the Martian winter. So, you all just stay the hell away. I used to be an Earthling, and know just how you people really are.
Sarah for President!
Sarah Vela could keep this country straight, and I consider her a "tech leader"
They stole the name of my favorite Linux commandline editor. Bastards.
Re: sarcastic comment...
Suppose the government quit stealing bandwidth in their surveillance activities, how much bandwidth would we get then?
The social vampires
have drained us dry and now are moving to to their next victims. Good riddance.
"From what I can see, other than people who'd buy the latest apple release even if it were dog shit with the logo printed on it,"
I smell a money making opportunity here. Would you claim prior art if I patented "dog shit" with a logo on it??
Trevor, just where does OpenVZ fit in this scheme of things?? I use Proxmox, which uses openVZ (and KVM which I haven't had reason to use) and it's been a cake walk to use for a small personal Linux cluster, while I have heard of Proxmox clusters running into thousands of nodes. So, in the middle of this discussion, should it be mentioned?? Keep it up, Ric
Re: Why Hyper-V is a non-starter in all situations
Trevor, you certainly seem to attract your share of the Windows 50-centers. If one third of what they write is true, then the market share of Windows as server would be much much more.
Re: Why Hyper-V is a non-starter in all situations
"10 minutes is a long time" WTF? This 10 minute example includes updating security patches via RPM. It's far far better than waiting months for patches when the Linux community can get updates within hours of a noted breach. I happen to use apt, but that is just another horse of course. Same same, I can get updates daily instead of bi-monthly. And I don't have to pay for stinkin' licenses to make the world's richest white guy richer.
Re: Trees are a crop
What ever happened to hemp? Leave the trees alone. Legalize hemp production again. This country was founded on hemp production.
What are the names of the tunes played in the background?
I cannot find any sort of discography and would like to know the titles of the background tunes There are some great tracks there! Ric
Re: Email servers - @Peter Gathercole
"Things changed when backups were archived of all the mail going through the system."
Things changed when a 10 meg harddrive cost less than $10,000. Until then, anything "old" got deleted. That was the price for the harddrive of a Lisa.
