I use Foxit but the real point is that diversity is key. if PDF is supposed to be a standard we shouldn't have a monoculture of one single PDF reader. Inevitably it will get bought by a careless profit driven monolith like Adobe and Microsoft who will use it as a platform to start churning out shit.
if you can find any real company that is willing to throw money at this stuff, please, tell me where to send my CV. When my employers talk about test labs they mean the pile of broken pentium 2s.
tens of thousands of dollars spent on MS licences - really?
Could give the money to any semi-competent Linux grey beard and end up with something that won't be obsolete at the next Microsoft product cycle.
that's an own goal
LOL. surely they knew it might touch a few nerves.
Maybe next time they can have a character called Mr Rapiscan or something.
dunno about the cleanup. someone left a strip light on the lawn once so i stamped on in. BANG. very satisfying.
but still fine to put it in our teeth yes?
well depending on which country you live in anyway. some countries dont give a shit about their slaves' health including all powerful UK.
how's it going 2000 man?
welcome back to solid ground my friend.
I heard all your controls were jammed.
Re: im sick of getting turned down at job interviews for not being indian
i'm going to set up an Indian account on monster and put on the Short Circuit accent and take the piss with these guys.
Re: filthy degenerates
turns out because I was wearing a nicer suit than him, he thought I was a rich kid. Nothing could be further from the truth. Obviously the guy was a working class lad and not too bright --with a belly full of pork pies. He was one ugly guy. Seeing a handsome intelligent boy like me was probably too much for him. Certainly wouldn't want anyone like me around the place making that sack of shit look bad at his job... whatever the hell he did. He's probably dead now anyone. Coronary disease is a killer you fat bastard.
Re: filthy degenerates
this is before companies like BT destroyed my attitude. i went in there all innocent like maybe if i do a good job i can climb the greasy ladder or whatever. but i get there and immediately its like "listen sonny we're not gunna hand you the top jobs on a plate" and i'm like woah when did i ever say anything about being handed things on a plate? thats some bullshit YOU made up and put on me.
BT are run by vile people. If I ever see the guy who interviewed me at BT on the street I'm going to make him find out what I think of him.
I remember when Nokias were desirable, now talking about your Nokia is like knowingly giving someone AIDS.
im sick of getting turned down at job interviews for not being indian
okay i said it. when the guy interviewing you is indian, and all his staff are indians, and he says you can do the job but he gives the job to another indian because you are white - that is racism. and ive seen it so many times.
Re: in 10 years iphones will look ... dated
it wont be worth any money when you're a feudal serf under the new world order.
the common vuln for all these windows dropper malwares is the windows OS which we need to get rid of immediately.
in 10 years iphones will look as dated as the TV show Big Brother does now. only the most unrepentant KFC munching chavs will still have one. and KFC will put unknown particles in your food from the GM and petrochemical industries. just like Apple would do if Steve Satan was still alive and running the show like the rampant cock munching tyrant he is.
The iphone is easy to snatch because of its cumbersome shape and short battery life. you could walk through an office and steal 20 or 40 because they have to be on charge all day. and on the street you just look like a twat carrying one so i would nick it from you jsut to teach you a lesson quite frankly and i know many who would do the same.
none of the porn sites i go on need a credit card. If I'm gonna be watching hardcore porn everyday I at least don't want it on my credit report.
happy to BUY WINDOWS PHONE. a+ purchase am pleased eternal! you buy me too.
yes brothers and sisters
Re: Windows 8 on Phones is so Sucky....
it shows how much optimization has been done i.e. the bare minimum
all in all just another brick in the wall
if you forget to put metadata in your image, i say FUCK YOU. get your shit took. what did you think would happen
industry brought the crisis on themselves with their idiotic behavior, making massive future losses to get their hands on small amounts of extra profit today. probably so the execs daughter can afford the new uni fees. otherwise how will her hot tight vag get introduced to the campus boys.
you see, nobody cares about IT people, at all. Nobody understands what we do, or how much smarter we are than them. My advice is to become a hacker. Black hat, white hat, grey hat. Get yourself a hat and get hacking. Choose a cause to change the world that you care about. Quit your job, you're gunna be laid off next month anyway.
Re: An alternative approach
we've had job applicants saying right in their cover letter "will work for free". and they don't even bother tarting it up with talk of internships or a paid opportunity later. they just say hey bitch i wanna for FOR FREE. so you look at their CV and invariably they graduated from some fake Indian university with a double degree in nuclear chemistry but they can't spell nuclear or chemistry and most of the CV was copied off the example on the front page of today's monster.com
looks real good, in the bin.
zuckerburg took our gift and our beauty and our resources
and used them to create filth, and destruction. He built a gateway for evil into the world and he saw that it was good. Now he is rubbing his hands, because his human resources are blissfully unaware of their domination, for now. Facebook wants to make next year your last social year.
with total dominance. now the UK census has been analyzed by the NSA you will get facebook undooing your relationships. They have your photos from CCTV and new algorithms based off youtube comments are generating hatemail in your name. Facebook is setting up millions of black accounts. they are your evil twin,
but the authorities know their number is yours. you cannot see your black account as Facebook puppets it to destroy your image and usher in everything unholy. Zuckerburg is creating in his image a world of inadequacy and suffering. you see it in the imagery he uses, in the clothes he wears, how he is doing things secretly. you know that evil is as evil does.
Re: the degree millstone
going to university is culturally normative. if it wasn't, I bet most people today wouldn't have gone in the first place. Some of them are there to learn, but these days people in our society interested in knowledge are vanishingly rare. Everyone's at McDonald's or Starbucks, scratching their ass, contemplating their next package holiday so they can go throw up all over a less well off country. Most people are pricks.
If you want to learn about computers, shit, we gunna put your ass to work. Learn assembly language, boolean algebra, database theory, the OSI layers, graph theory, compiler theory, algorithms, parallel processing, serialisation, encryption, data compression, multiplexing, redundancy, client/server model, C, linked lists, reverse word indexes, encapsulation/encoding/data types etc.
In the end, nobody will give a shit that you know any of that, and you still won't get a good job.
windows 8 has failed in the market place
this is not surprising. it brings the user an interesting new experience like being hit in the face with breeze block on a construction site and being left for dead with bleeding genitals.
many people have been tricked into paying huge numbers of beer tokens, like 25 beer tokens, so you bet theyre gunna make up some obscure feature microsoft stole from linux to claim its a great new improvement etc but fact is someone would of coded that feature for free if the source code was open and you wouldnt have to be hit in the face or touched up on a building site. you could have freedom. you could be respected.
it only runs faster because they colluded with intel to make it so. theres no reason windows xp could of been that fast and windows xp ctually is the fastest but again theres this construction site delusion where th emore traumatic the experience the mroe you pretend to like it
i think the latency is better on the real game as well
its so responsive how the pieces always move to where you put them and not..... where some algorithm wants.
board games are shit. nuclear families are shit. and table top PCs are the thin turd chain that joins them together in the supermax society. does the table pc spy on you and sell you novelty bumper stickers and soft drinks as well? Let me guess there is an obnoxious shop to buy table pc board games so that you can pay your money for something thats like a real object but not real!!!!! fuck computers.
Re: in 2 years tablets in any architecture will be totally cheap
"As bad as China's air quality is I bet England's 120 years ago or so wasn't much better."
should have pointed that out 120 years ago when I might have cared
in 2 years tablets in any architecture will be totally cheap
coming out of china like industrial diarrhea. I laugh at how their air is so shitty, they probably fart it out cleaner. but i hope the toxins dont eventually effect me in my part of the world. anyway enjoy your tablets you toffs
I love it when they steal rich tat
from rich twats.
i hope the store crashes and burns then i hope the ashes crash as well
a store is just a unix repository but less useful because everything that costs money costs money and everything that doesn't is shit.
not jsut LCDs
food, printer ink, socks, condoms, healthcare, transport
all of the prices are fixed so no matter how shit the quality, you always have to pay a little more
dont worry youyr money is going to a good cause - the rockefellers and bill gates and the eugenicists. they know better how to spend your money than you do. they know to use your own money to kill you.
and if thats not bad enough
wait till you see how shit the scans look
HOW DARE YOU DO THIS
Get that Chebab guy here so i can shout at him too. what a tool. scum!
well thats a surprise
didnt know anyone was seriously using WMC
wireless data waves to corrupt brain frequencies
its all here black and white clear as crystal
Re: This is 2013, manufacturers. Get with the program.
"so why can't I just download the software without a login?"
because they want to spam you. APC do the same crap. You just have to sign up to use our software its real easy BAM have some spam sucker!!!.
a simple explanation
bought my kid an ipad for christmas. returned on new year.
reason being is i wanted to prove to him that we didnt become trendy when it arrived or stop being trendy when it left and we are both quite satisfied now that its not a trendy product. other families aren't as intelligent.
give it 10 years
any thunderbolt gear you buy now is practically guaranteed to be expensive buggy and no better than regular alternatives. apple users are the beta test. its fast as hell of course theres no point wasting all that time and money to hook up a decade old piece of tech like a hard drive. thunderbolt is for things that dont exist yet.
apple watch in stylish barcode finish with rfid included to proudly display your number
when apple (latin for evil) release a watch and it becomes popular, you will know the new world order has taken over and will begin sterilizing your children and putting binary weapons in their HFCS.
Re: the trouble is that business leaders are inherently stupid people
if you're rich you will get hired straight out of Oxford even if you only got in cos your dad paid the relevant hush money. thats exactly how business in the UK works. There are people in top universities who can write their own name, cant name the planets, but they can get a job above you in the food chain every day of the week.
the trouble is that business leaders are inherently stupid people
they have money, and they love to assume that they are smarter than people with less money. (they call it ""experience"") but really what they are saying when they say they wont hire you because of a lack of experience, they mean they wont hire you because you have a lack of money.
im not surprised business leaders frequently fail to spot trends or analyse data effectively. I have worked with business leaders and they are all scum. they only think in terms of how to make the next penny. even when they have kids you can see they have a terrible outlook on life and their kids are inherently unhappy. business is futile.
let me tell you about linked in folks
no one cares that you and your mates put an obviously sexed up list of skills on a website. you are not employable. you are scum.
as we can see the shutting down of freedom of speech
and restriction on neuronal activity under a diagnostics framework designed to turn a human being into a human resource. they discriminate against all kinds of people their agents are run by the same scientists who ran the nazis. they want to do experiments on your DNA.
