Just call it broken already
Windows desktop has been broken beyond belief.
My system boots Linux, Windows XP, Windows 7, even OS/2 with ease in less than 30 seconds, I tried Windows 8 and 8.1 for a 15 minute boot attempt after a half day installation, would not recommend that installation again.
Windows 8.1 has done nothing to improve the startup horrors created by 8.0.
Step one, invest in BitCoins.
Step two, release ransomware that only accepts BitCoins.
Step three, Make profit, while making investment go through the roof.
"Congress could easily get that from Food Stamps and only a few millions would starve..."
/And those would be Democrat voters.
I don't care if I am bald,
If the answer to baldness is chopping my pecker, I'll want to be bald.
Repost from 1990s?
Isn't this old news; a free space laser used for fiber channel or Ethernet comm?
/between some non-existent satellites?
If I was leaking information, the only hot girlfriend I had would probably be CIA.....
/not that I would care in her case
After Ohio, they need to look at the American law enforcement Mafia in general, every town in America gas similar cases.
In Milton Florida, the Police looked the other way when a 12 year old child was raped in a parade, on a float, with a goat; no arrests of any of the kidnappers, no charges to the ones who ran that float.
I see why Americans that agree with this want a smaller government
Due to the places they want their government to go....
The simple solution
Hand out Tazers to everyone flying, especially the kids.
There will be so many misaken Tazerings on each flight, we will be imune to airplane violence.
God help someone who actually tries something on the resulting plane full of tazer armed, terrorozed, pissed off "victims"...
He did it all for the nookie...
/Paris for the night vision.
I wonder if the opposite is possible, a virtual display, superimposed over your vision, adjustable in later version.
You only need an ice-pick jack in the back of your head.
God help you when you see 2 girls 1 cup (or worse) through a direct brain feed....
The Mazda top of the line RX8 GT has one of the best traction control/stability control packages on the market; and is the reason I bought the "low end" RX8 "sport" model that does not have this "feature".......
What about the Females with flashy cars?
So men with flashy cars are shallow, what about the honey's in flashy cars, we need a new study.
She then reports her FB account was hacked....
I plan on squatting www.vulture.thereg
Can you patent first in, first out, and did they manage to patent it before every OS that uses FIFO?
Or do they have a Tardis?
/they did "win"; I give it a fail for the legal system.
I wonder what happens in a Mach 22 bird strike?
/it can't be good.
Zombie SCO FUD
Microsoft just release a phone and now we have Android FUD; there is no connection here at all.
Unless Android App developers decided to steal code, they have no issue with having to "show the code", apps compiled against the kernel header is compulsory for the Linux OS and is not a copyright violation at all.
Interesting regurgitation of The SCO Group speak" about header files and the magic number of the elves...
I give this FUD a fail.
Due to the location, wouldn't that be The Cape Town Syndrome?
Blowing my own horn...
I have an SSD caching the array; a 256 GB OCZ is my RAID cache, so my 4 TB RAID 5 acts as if it were a giant SSD.
Be very careful, and wear protection...
With all the Leslie Nielsen quotes....
Someone needs to fork the Fortune app to display his quotes at a user log in.
How much does it cost?
Will they repo the liver for non-payment?
Next they will blame wikileaks.
Ah, The SCO Group, such wonderful plumage...
But seriously, the endless retries keeps The SCO group's execs out of criminal charges for the conversion of Novell's $16 million.
/Remember, this is not the old "SCO", but "The SCO Group"; formerly known as Caldera.
//The name change was intended to confuse a judge/jury/world into thinking they had rights to reinterpret a contract signed by "Old SCO".
The gull is carrying a baguette, he is on the way to the LHC.
A clever plan....
Data is all ones and zeros....
Dedupe it down to a single one, zero doesn't count anyway...
My thought is the deduplication engine belongs off the hard drive, hard drives need more speed, not more overhead.
NetApp and EMC (I assume EMC) can deduplicate iSCSI and fiber channel luns in a regular scheduled process.
I give a self deduping hard drive a fail.
Call The Doctor, we have a paradox machine.
What if there can be only one Higgs-Boson?
Why not an airplane shaped zeppelin with a pressure vent that releases one way as the external pressure goes down in relation to the internal pressure.
The balloon/plane goes up and reaches a balance between the lift of the gas/weight of the plane and the pressure difference releasing gas.
Once the vent reaches a balance the vent no longer releases gas and the plane/balloon (now heavier than the air) glides back down.... eventually.
You can carry more weight this way, (a signal?) and reuse the device later. (when you find it)
/Do not use Hydrogen....
Ops, I didn't see the "paper" part.
Sorry, did not see the paper part.
What IS the record height for a paper mini-zeppelin again?
Rice paper skin, to hold in the gas, over a carbon fiber frame?
Proof of Ceiling Cat?
Ceiling cat was doing more than watching.
/Think of the Domo-kuns....
Grandma, what big eyes have.
"Meanwhile, Microsoft stressed that third parties are free to implement technologies under the Community Promise without signing a license."
Did they say anything about actually developing and using it in Linux, or just that it can be implemented in Windows?
You need to watch the wording of the MicroSphinx.
Let's hope the firmware is not created by Seagate.....
Tin-foil not required
Of course they need to jam phones during the next terrorist attack, we can't have any more cell phone calls from high jack victims can we?
Tell President Bush the Asteroid has WMDs.
We can have a color coded Asteroid threat level...
What are the odds?
I knew him well
RIP Apache becomes A Patchy.....
The easy way for MS to kill Apache, is to patch it as often as Windows.
But what do the techs look like?
"Its 28-litre tank of golden AdBlue is enough to go 28000km, seemingly, so Mercedes don't expect that customers will need to top it up themselves. This will be done by technicians during routine servicing."
Don't try this at home?
Brings new meaning to "routine servicing".
I think I have seen the video of the German "technicians" in action.
I had migraines for many years, since I was very young.
My migraines resulted in sweating a quart or more of water in about a half hour. (I squeezed out the sheets one day to check)
I still have trouble when a doctor asks me "to scale my pain on a 1-10 scale".
I have had broken bones, cuts to the bone, hammer blows to the thumb, but have never found any pain close to one of my "bad" migraines.
When the cow hit; did someone comment the drivers mother smelt of Elderberries.....
Forklift drivers last job?
I wonder how this relates to Vista deployment?
