Am I really the only one that doesn't have a problem with 8.1 once Classic Shell is installed?

They're horrible, that's why I'm on LTE. CenturyLink told me I was too far for DSL despite the fact that the neighbors on both sides of me had it. I asked them how I'm somehow further than neighbors on BOTH SIDES of me, and they just said I was too far. Morons.
But they already HAVE.. I'm rural and I'm on LTE (granted with a yagi and an amp, but still) and get roughly 20-25Mbps.
Try SeaMonkey. You know, that thing that existed before FireFox when they decided it was too bloated. Now FF is bloated and we get Servo!
Even if she was tried and convicted, I'm sure Obama would pardon her anyways.
How about a third party, like Libertarian?
"The same morons who can't stop bribing government officials to keep serious studies of gun violence from occurring?"
Why does it require the government to do a serious study of something? And last time I checked, the NRA can't stop anybody from doing a study, all they did was deny funding to have the CDC consider gun violence as a medical problem. CDC is supposed to study diseases, and I haven't heard of a bullet that can spread Swine Flu yet. Anyways, Obama DID give the CDC money to do it, and they did, and it turns out that the answers weren't what they wanted to hear: http://dhss.delaware.gov/dhss/dms/files/cdcgunviolencereport10315.pdf
"You sound like an asshole. If the sphincter fits..."
Despite the fact that I straight out said that I DON'T support the NRA, you resort to name calling? Keeping it classy I see..
"As someone who served in the military, and shot every stupid weapon there is to shoot, I can tell you this; if you are not a military or police trained weapons handler, you are a scared pussy just moments away from shooting yourself in the foot, or better; getting killed by a toddler with your unsecured firearm."
You might have had something until you said "or police trained". My police shoot their weapons once a year for their qualifications and that's it. They're usually worse around guns than others! There are numerous stories about NYC police shooting more innocent bystandards (and THEMSELVES) than the bad guys, and even a YouTube video of a *DEA* agent shooting himself in the foot in front of a classroom of children. Regardless, who said anything about an unsecured firearm?
If you really were in the military, then might I suggest that you go to the nearest NHS hospital and check yourself in for some serious PTSD treatment, as you seem to be full of violent rage.
They actually make bullets that will fracture when they hit things like plasterboard because of situations like this.
You can lock your doors, put tamper-resistant jambs on, put bars on your windows, etc. If somebody wants in badly enough, they'll find a way in. NOT having a contingency plan is more of a failure. Granted, having a 'safe room' is better than both ideas.
As much as I dislike the NRA (not because I'm anti-gun, I just don't like some of the things that they do), this article is really misleading. Let's start with the title:
"NRA guns down 38,000 Surge.sh sites in anti-parody spray-and-pray"
No, the NRA didn't "gun down" anything. They followed the DMCA and filed a cease-and-desist. DigitalOcean is the one that shut down ALL of Surge.sh and not just the fake news site. So blame DigitalOcean, not the NRA.
"..which was upset about a parody website lampooning the ammosexuals."
Name-calling and journalism don't really mix. Leave your bias out of news.
"The NRA has yet to respond to a request for comment on the matter."
Why should they? They didn't shut anything down, DigitalOcean did.
The site in question wasn't just parody. They used the NRA trademark in the FQDN, they used the NRA trademark (and the Smith & Wesson trademark) all over the site, used the NRA logos, etc. Even the copyright on the page said MRA and Smith & Wesson. Unless somebody really knew what the *REAL* NRA news site was, they wouldn't even know that it was a fake site. IMHO, they crosses the parody line and then looked back at it and crapped all over it.
This was just a huge stunt to try and get more bad feelings towards the NRA, and you're just playing into it.
The broker didn't have any inside information though. They were just doing as their client asked.
His biggest mistake was not being a politician. People in the US House/Senate are immune from inside trading laws!
Oh yes, because every F-Droid user checks every line of source code to every app they install...
Actually read that article that you linked to. It has nothing to do with Spotify being a music streaming app that competes. It's all about subscriptions inside the app and payments. This applies to all apps on the App Store.
"As usual, the two Republican commissioners voted against the proposal and issued statements explaining why. Somewhat less usually, their arguments were valid."
How about you reserve biased comments for editorials and not for news stories?
I personally don't get why the FCC itself cares about outages. Surely the users of the services care much more than the bureaucrats.
Snaps seem to be basically the same thing as PBIs in PC-BSD. Except PBIs were discontinued.
I'm hoping they meant that the snapshots will be used to make the backups. I HOPE!
Adobe products are the only ones that I had fail with case sensitive. So I call BS on it being an XCode issue.
They had started working on ZFS for OS X a long time ago. It got removed, however. The rumor was that Oracle wouldn't grant patent indemnification.
There's no "Linux" in iOS. It's all XNU (Mach + BSD) in the kernel, and the userland is a mix of BSD and Apple/NeXT. OS X has a smattering of GNU in the userland, but I don't believe iOS itself does.
I pay more than that $383/mn for 500Mbps business FiOS!
RTFA: they're appealing. So no, it's not over.
It's been a while since I've used MySQL, so I'm sad to hear that it has open sores these days. Is Oracle too poor to provide it with decent healthcare?
The ironic thing is, the guy used to play for ASU. Their mascot is the Sun Devil. So I wouldn't be completely surprised if her shirt was for his own former team!
I know of no state where you could legally be shot for doing this.
Most states have some version of castle doctrine, but the guy was outside. They could probably threaten to shoot him, but not actually do it.
This is why I made the jump to SAS. For HDDs, the increase isn't that much, and the MTBF and the unrecoverable sector rates are much better.
For SSDs though, SAS is sadly $$$
That would be me. UAC gets disabled immediately and the "Administrator" user gets reenabled and renamed to me. It's my internal BOFH.
I don't find 8.1 to be half bad... After you put Classic Shell on it!
I'm sorry, but how is a DRIVE too new? That makes no sense.
While HPe still owns OpenVMS, they licensed development of it out to VMS Software. VMS seems to have hired a lot of the original VMS devs.
Too bad they didn't do the same for Tru64...
How does being prepared make you less of a man, exactly?
So what you're saying is that people who get upset immediately turn to murder?
You forgot explosives too. Soo much fun wrapped into one!
I had to down vote just for the abuse of apostrophes. Sorry, it's a personal pet peeve...
Windows 8.1 + Classic Shell will give you until 2023, so an extra 3 years. I finally went from 7 to 8.1+CS and I'm not regretting it at all. Now without CS, that's a whole other story...
That's called security through obscurity.
I'd sure hope that they didn't meat their people out! That's pretty low standards!
How much did Cisco PR pay El Reg for this "native advertisement"? :(
With Xen (like a lot of hypervisor platforms), the "NICs" and "storage devices" are just message passing drivers back to the hypervisor. There is no emulation overhead, just overhead of the message passing (eg, context switches).
This also isn't just about fixing TCP/IP by a long shot.
Monoprice and Amazon Basic cables are both MFi verified and much less than $12!
Technically both OS X/Darwin/XNU and Tru64 aka Digital UNIX aka OSF/1 used a hybrid kernel, just like NT does.
Java is horrible, but using .NET and HTML 5 as better examples, wow.
.NET's compatibility is slightly better, but you still need 1.1, 3.5, and 4.6.1 installed to cover all the bases. MS also has pushed out a few security fixes to .NET also.
More than likely it was just a false positive from your AV app, seeing as the AV probably doesn't grok the binaries (they're probably ELF vs Windows PE).
It's mainly used on "appliances" (along with a BIOS password) as an attempt to keep people from easily getting root on the machine and poking around (eg by adding "init=/bin/sh" to the command line).
Now if somebody would just revive Tru64 aka Digital UNIX aka OSF/1, all would be right with the world again. Oh, and Alpha too, of course, although I guess China is already doing that...
You must be new here...
I wish! The OS/2 ATMs were so much faster than these damn XPe ones. They're so crazy slow it's aggravating!
One thing I did notice that you listed prices for the others, but I don't recall seeing a price for the Supermicro?
10GE/40GE NICs are fairly reasonable, actually. 10GE switches are a little pricey though, and 40GE ones are highway robbery....
UF still exists? I stopped reading it over 18 years ago!
8.1 w/ Classic Shell is just as good, if not better, than 7 IMHO.
However 10 is just a huge mess for me. On one of my Acer laptops, 7 & 8.1 work fine, as soon as I go to 10 (either clean install or upgrade), the 2nd HDD and DVD drives both stop working. I've tried all kinds of workarounds, registry edits, hacks, etc. I've just given up and gone back to 8.1. Next step, Mac!
