The really fun part is that the music companies are charging their percentages as if there was mechanical mediums produced, like vinyl, and the various tape formats on cartridges. They had to assemble a mechanical medium at some expense. With CD's and DVD's the cost of distribution fell through the floor. Then along comes the Internet. The moguls refused to pass the reduced expense to artists and customers alike. Since that is common knowledge, no one feels the pang of regret when they pirate.
Re: Is stealing music from YouTube, like, an actual thing?
Read the fine print. You can own a movie on DVD but you may not play it to a group of convicts in prison. And not one of the Hollywood celebs says one word about it. Fuggum
You can bet Newt will be in there somewhere. Sorry folks, but Hillary scares me more than Don.
As citizens of the US, we should have access to photos of the hookers. Jus' saying it's our right!!
Re: Another one bites the dust in the wild, wild East.
I've worked for several companies who set their sights on China. It was always some middle manager who wanted to put a notch on his marketing gun. So they went to China, with their large nuts in a wheelbarrow, the Chinese politely picked their brains, fed them Peking Roast Duck, and showed them the way back to the airport. Dumb bastards always came back with glowing reports. Nothing ever happened except the Chinese opened a new factory to produce what we taught them for free. Here's something to consider. Westerners are hairier than the Chinese. Ergo, we are closer to the apes. Nixon had to be viewed as a silverback with that 5 O'clock shadow.
Excellent notion!! Otherwise other bank users are going to share the overhead for the Apple transfers for Apple Users, and as I happen to LOATH Apple, I would be mightily pissed. The reason I happen to LOATH Apple is because they tried to sue me for using the word "Apple" in our user group name. Petty bastards.

Red is never a good color to push. You would think a 74 year old would have learned thus,
Re: "We have already gone to Mars."
I am already on Mars. My ham bushes are almost ready for harvest and the blanket trees just bloomed. I hope you all just stay the hell away.
Re: There are two types of marriage
Churches don't issue marriage certificates that I know of. Everyone has to go to the courthouse.
"I'm guessing you were also against interracial marriage until that became unfashionable. (1967, by the way, when the Supreme Court had to intervene in that one.)"
...and I am glad they did. But, don't tar-brush parents with the "racist" label who merely want their grandchildren to look like them.
Regarding "Shariah" law, it derives almost word for word from it's roots in the Torah. Christianity came from Judaism and about 300 years later Islam partially arose from Christianity. I suspect it was in response to the "weaponization" of Christianity by Rome. (Accept the Cross and win wars) But, no one has an issue with kosher salt. Go figure. At any rate, present day Christianity has zip to do with the teaching of Jesus the Christ, starting with the fact that "Christ" was not Jesus's last name. . "Christ" is a title. so he would be properly referred to as "Jesus The Christ".
Re: Wrong type of privilege
"what legitimate reason would a Secretary of State have to use her own email server?"
Simple, if it is YOUR server what is on it is yours as well. Plenty of fodder for multi-million dollar books, blackmail, and just plain power. Simple.
Re: Countdown Tech
Good article, Liam! Funny that no one mentions Proxmox. They've been in the trenches long time! Ric
"Windows computers aren't marriage material because they're promiscuous, high risk of STIs, high maintanence, and are always trying to "reinvent themselves". "
Like real women? Yer Honor, I rest my case.
I'd love to see reviews of containers done poorly. at great public expense .
Network Solutions comes to mind from the running gun-battle I have with them..
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!"

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. "

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.
