Whiznot

I know people still running DOS 6.2 who see no reason to upgrade. If you like your XP you can keep your XP.

Fukushima fearmongers: It's YOUR FAULT Japan DUMPED CO2 targets

Whiznot

The results are not in

The crisis is ongoing. The state of spent fuel rods in reactor four is precarious given the geology of that region. The article is simply propaganda.

RIP Bill Lowe: Father of the IBM PC no longer reading drive C

Whiznot

IBM management did not make a mistake. IBM shareholders got shafted and the billions went elsewhere as planned.

Hypersonic MEGA METEOR pulled from lake, then Russians drop it

Whiznot

Breyv is not a loon. The man is simply a con man on the make who's trying to capitalize on ignorance and fear. There is a good chance that soon Breyv will be traveling in style with a harem.

Microsoft relents: 'Go ahead, install Windows 8.1 on clean PCs'

Whiznot

I think Windows 8.1 should be distributed for free through the NSA. People shouldn't have to pay for the privilege of being spy victims.

'Liberator': Proof that you CAN'T make a working gun in a 3D printer

Whiznot

One early development failure doesn't prove that a functioning gun can't be 3D printed just like one idiotic article doesn't prove the writer is a moron. However, endless idiotic articles...

Dubai splurges on 700hp, 217mph Lamborghini police cruiser

Whiznot

I once read that leaders of the UAE commissioned a study to determine why they suffered the world's highest highway death rates. The study found that the problem was due to hindered peripheral caused by the traditional headdress. UAE leaders decided tradition trumps safety so people keep dying.

I tried the FF reader but it's slow and I could only scroll by using the scroll button. I spent almost no time before changing the application option to open Foxit. The FF reader seemed to offer few options.

Thankfully, they haven't outlawed my miniature unmanned camera-equipped submarine that cruises through sewage systems and surfaces in neighbor's toilets to shoot moon shots.

Anonymous turns private eye in Ohio rape case

Whiznot

What about DNA?

After the rapes the girl's parents took her to a hospital. I hope someone collected semen samples. Reports say that at least six boys raped the unconscious girl.

The fix is inplace... Wait for the civil trials.

The authorities in Ohio will try to protect the football players. I hope the victim's attorney is a good one. After being drugged unconscious the girl was transported and raped at three different homes. One of the homes belonged to an assistant football coach and another belonged to the female prosecutor who tried to bury the criminal case. The prosecutor's son was alleged to be a member of the "rape crew" and one of the girl's attackers. The owners of all three homes where the rapes occurred should be facing huge civil liability suits. The plaintiff will surely collect all of the liability coverage from homeowner's insurance.

Apple Computer is lucky that Apple Records let them off the hook decades ago. Funny how the lawyers always win and everyone else loses.
