I chatted with snowden before I knew he was snowden on a web forum dedicated to nerdy IT geeks.
It was an unusual forum in which you must give a reason why you like to join and have certain cred in both the IT and hacker community. After a week they let me and and I went right to the forums and it was there snowden was bragging that he is getting background check and it was his main goal while working there to squeal like a pig if he found anything that might construe very bad morals to America.
Everyone warned him not to do it as insider would easily find him and could kill him.
Reminds me of the nerdy redheaded afro geek who did Unix support for the Pentagon and oh well better not go there.
Instead of "Hey 19" by Steely Dan it should be "Hey Windows 10"
No we got nothing in common. Sure looks good. Turn off a little faster now.
MICROSOFT- We are unable to find talented people to work for us because we fired all of them!
Perhaps the motivation was there to begin with as well as spirit but when you see the success that World Of Warcraft made and this new MMO looked like a super hi rez version of WOW did not make any sense.
What would be better would be an Open Sourced MMO game that anyone can edit and agree on.
Man I miss VRML files!
I used to love zooming around inside my netscape gold and clicking and viewing
The Scotts do not want their country and charm and history to be destroyed by the invading forces who the leader of these invaders is no other than Barbara Lerner Spectre who says the whole of europe must mix or EUROPE will fail.
Well so far those policies can be seen how they are undoing the fabric of the UK with rape of over 1,400 children and BLS supports wants even more to come over. So imagine the hell she is creating.
The Scotts want nothing to do with her and her failed ideologies.
I would make it a lot serious for running these bots.
If caught and found guilty in the court of law then mandatory sex change will be in place.
Re: Config files just work
The one part is very true. config fles can reside anywhere!
I hate that. All you non microsoft config files stay out of the windows path and subdirectories!
If you want your cfg file to be read at boot time then add the path to the environment variable!
Executables in the registry.
I've known this for over 8 years now.
What is new to me that they use a microsoft trick so you can not read the code.
Malware writers have been hiding junk in the registry for years now and was one of the way they would reinfect the persons internet browser.
I went I saw
I visited those links to view the pics but not as for porn purposes.
I went to rate them in the mere fact on how valid/fake they were.
I would say that 95% of the pictures there are all real.
Sadly the one with the girl showing off her bum looks more like a medical condition.
She should get that looked at. Seriously!!
Kinda reminds me way back when....
I also remember back when I was a very young lad accidentally had sex.
Yes it was truly an accident! No joke.
Certain races find the human form disgusting and would rather hide in their shame.
I am sure if you forced those shameful people to live in a greek city they would be in jail in no less than 24 hours for using hammers on famous statues that have rock solid genitals in plain view.
It is their religion that makes them do this and it is a mental sickness.
Its like this. Not just apps but music as well.
Sometimes the into to the music feature does not give full feature of music you may want to buy and based on the snippet I bout a few albums that after a while really do seem to totally suck and would like to unlist them from my purchases. I really do not care if I get a refund or not I just want it out of my list of music I bought.
IT WILL ALWAYS FAIL.
Naming your social network site by a name that sounds like some stale food item.
todays encoding sucks
Take any sound from the internet and burn to CD then the sound sucks.
So far every audio I have sampled and recorded to cd needed major editing to make it sound halfway decent.
A good example would be youtube. Loudness is messed up and BASS is almost totally missing.
What ever the sound engineers at youtube were thinking?
tracert.exe shows that verizon is the one lying.
A video out already shows 2 young men using brute force wireless hacking to unlock cars.
I wonder if they have been caught yet.
Security will get worse before it gets better.
FBI= I see you have a legal version of office for the cloud edition!
Customer=Uuuhh yeah so why are you harassing me? GTFO!
American version of GODZILLA totally sucks!
DNT has a few meanings. DNT track so that if the page does get spidered that the search results will always contain the latest page in search results.
DO NOT SPIDER - keep page out of search engine index.
More than that!
There was a great article last year written how IT always backstabs itself to death in a rotating wheel of futile wannabe trends and this vicious circle never stops.
When working in IT right away I can do away with those new trendy keywords the industry always uses.
Canned responses instead of putting the human touch on things.
Forgetting to keep the company intranet simple with the least amount of clicks with the least amount or no cascading style sheet tricks that make the older generation cringle in fear on mouse overs.
Pay attention to the customer and make new policies that dating with co workers is terms for being fired - no need to have war of the sexes while on the job.
The IT manager always has the latest hardware for Microsoft Office but the account admin has a pc that is 5 years old.
Allowing new hires to take vacation or time off and they have not even met their 6 months at the company yet.
All dept head teams have close access to the building but all IT employees must park very far away from the building and no emergency park area for IT for those dead computer emergencies for quick repairs or pc swaps.
IT should get their own lunch rooms so other depts do not hear the chitter chatter about people who treat their pc like crap.
IT dept is always the last part of the company to get their carpets replaced.
Shoving IT under boiler pipes looking like a scene out of nightmare on elm street(georgetown university in downtown washington D.C.)
My only argument for not upgrading is.
Your XP system runs great and is not on the internet at all and since it is never on the internet then it needs no antivirus so your system runs fast!
You have a backup and software you bought for it is no longer in production and there is no other software like it on the market so you have to make do and you are very happy with the application you are using and you know all the ins and outs of the program and can work around issues because you came to know the buggy program and how to avoid it from crashing by not doing this or that.
If your system is XP and on the internet then there are always hardware soloutions to block infections and so forth so you can still just rely on your backup image copy.
I would like to see an optional soloution. Have Microsoft still sell XP but you are not allowed to install it anymore.
Instead let XP boot from CD or DVD or a thumb drive.
I signed up then forgot the password to my account then also forgot the password to my email so that is why I have never sent anything.
I know... Sad.
I buy the stuff to learn about it at home. Then once I know all about it then I resell it to local family or so down the street.
It is normal for a company to buy something and test it for 6 months before it becomes a company standard.
If your company uses tons of app the testing involved is so to confirm maximum compatibility.
Same goes for windows updates. We test all in a private network before it is sent out to users desktops unless it is a emergency security patch.
Re: If you really want to create an intelligence we recognize as our own...
True AI will be a boon for every company on the planet.
They will remember for you.
They will remind you if you forget.
They will pay your bills for you if you forget.
They can research for you.
They will be able to give cheap thrills and argue with you if you like.
You can set the level of IQ and age and sex if you find interacting much easier if you control
such functions as well as language.
I am sure the first bath will be generic then others will specialize in their knowledge or buy the grand wizard AI unit with has quadruple the memory and hard drive space to contain all knowledge and subjects which would be equivalent to like a master brain best used by universities or scientists or add to your AI unit to expand its functions as the needs increase.
Next step would be google injecting this new AI into their car units so no more human taxi drivers.
Hanicapped people would be falling in love with their ai units as well as perverts and criminals.
Some criminals will go to jail for teaching their AI robot how to steal.
Re: Risky, but..
Once true AI has been established then I would love to have an argument with a computer.
Soon there will be pay for arguments booths where you can just chat about anything with a AI computer and they will be entirely in depth in their knowledge by auto searching the internet as they argue with the person.
Monty Python should Copyright argument booths ASAP!
I remember when I was alpha testing with many others the program that would soon be called VMWARE.
Alpha testing to them was testing with many users which seemed odd at the time because usually alpha testing is usually done in house and beta testing is with willing non employee users or future users of the program.
But just like a light switch they just come forward and said thanks but no thanks without any recourse for those submitting bugs and feature requests. I kept a grudge against vmware to this very day for not giving people a heads up on when testing would be complete. The in house team was very rude to the alpha testers.
It was then I deleted any and all refrence to vmware and decided to stay with virtual pc and or other soloutions. The people at VPC at the time were never rude to their customers like the employees of vmware,.
Only mouth breathing energy wasting gas guzzling nobodies hate the Tesla.
The religion of Elon Musk will continue as planned.
security for real
Not just spooks but when you offshore your equipment to china for your products to be built then make mandatory rules that all pc/OS related hardware gets formatted.
So yes even though you think you save money offshoring then declare all the info on those systems a complete loss because 99% of the time all the hardware will be infected.
Why chance your company on infection when you setup strict policies to keep your network clean from attacks from spooks and hackers alike?
Some future rude human programmer will look at these API's made by robots and will try to start to argue with them.
Soon ROBOTAUTOFORGE.com will accept any and all api's as long as the source is given and some lowly geek jealous human will be booting bad programs and will make the robots angry for deleting them. It will be the lowly fool who will suffer the wrath of the robots and the robots will make sure he never finds employment on earth ever again.
So now robot rights will use their code as free speech and if you dare delete their code then they will seek vengece 1000 fold.
Long live robots!
Box yourselves in
A good coder will have his box of codes that he/she/they refer to as a tollbox.
That coder will refer to their toolbox often for most often used tools to make his coding easier.
Case in point this so called non coder does not even have a toolbox!
What a shame! People like that should never be hired for coding jobs but it happens all the time.
Since the 8.1 update.
Since the update I see that youtube and flash sites no longer work with Internet Explorer 11 even with compatibility mode checked and or putting the url into the compatibility tab.
Microsoft screwed it up big time. Bunch of idiots is all they are.
I can vouch for his truthiness.
My moms friend in USA Virginia came to USA on a H1B visa from India.
After more than 10 years later he became a US citizen. He came foward with his citizenship to his boss and then his boss told him to train 5 new hires also from india to replace him or be fired.
It is that point that many companies will not hire Americans because they cost too much even if they truly have all the skill sets needed and required by the company.
Before LCD came out they were those burning glowing wire types and our family had one and it would auto add for you and I swear it was more fun to play with than most toys.
THey want to be like geeksquad and charge extra no matter what even if a part is replaced and only costs $7 but charges the customer over $400.
The honest tech will charge the customer $7 and perhaps just $100 per incident.
feeding vs being fad
The reason winamp died is that they took away control. Yes you people at nummsoft know this to be true!
when winamp 5 busted out new and fresh people were hosting itheir own videosi and you people at nullsoft took that control away. you change the backend menu system to be corporate driven drivel of worthless videos that drove away customers. Keep power with the people and winamp would have become a legend but no. corporate greed took control. So they grounded up the Llama at the expense of the corporate soul.
bring back the backend when it was first published and watch the people return.
sales pitch for metrics on downloads.
Sales pitch for metics on downlods and who downloads them and when how and why.
This is for the web master and not some sleaze bag who wants to install permanent files onto users pc that phone home every time users either use the program or turn on their pc.
So far from what we read in science articles that the mere fact of moving is meaning you are breaking the time/space barrier itself. THe only way to do this would be to unlock the tardis from the planet it resides on.
Unless he is using the power of the planet to power his tardis. His tardis could be killing the planet while he goes about the universe. This much power must mean he is controlling a very very weak black hole at the center of the planet. HE uses the space time effct to travel like the Enterprise does but stands still while doing it. I am sure a few plents with a micro black hole will explode a few times before they build the very first tardis. Perhaps that was how the tardis was built. Designed to blow up planet dying so they could bring in new planets. By accident the engineer became the first time traveler and his co workers stand in judge ment against him all the time and his 1 coworkers hates him so much this becomes his arch enemy,
I am sure his helpdesk will be slammed with fan calls. HAhahaha
At one time I was able to remember up to 1,000 lines of code by heart.
I used that code and the stuff in between to be my toolset box of often use routines to perform certain functions.
Now if someone took that code and tried to copyright it I by design also win in court because it is my TOOLBOX of often used subroutines that I use as a regular programer to perform my daily tasks achieve those end goals to meet QA each week. Now if various companies try to sue other companies for reusing my code templates then those companies lose in court and I win. So in that regard to this article I am sure this guy has been very intimate for many years with this code and he went off on wild tangents to make the code better and perform better on different hardware I suspect.
I hope the judge remembers the programmers toolbox caselaw in which the programmer always win unless they truly copied and pasted lots of code that is not part of his toolbox. In which case the programmer would not win in court.
If I am truly something important on my tablet work related then I expect if you do not interrupt me.
But of course if this was a meeting room then I would expect to be interrupted.
To sit there among others that we must share time together for a huddle session then it is I who would be rude.
I think recording a meeting be it audio or visual then should be announced by the host of the meeting. this way the recording will be more official sounding.
I am so sick of one phone needing 5 volts and a super tiny skinny pole to jam up the bottom of the phone or the side of it and it looks so flimsy!
Then you have the connector that refuses to stay connected if the cord is short. Why can't you companies make it longer than 6 feet please? 8 to 9 feet would be very decent indeed!
And stop making chargers that hog up the the space around it on my power strip!
Re: Just a drop in the ocean
You are 100% correct!
I used to make competitors websites totally fall off search engines results by SEOing them to death.
This angers the search engine protocols and one of the old tricks that used to work back in the old infoseek days was to copy your competitors sites and have that site be live on the internet as well then within 2 days the site would be dead.
Ahh the easy good ole days.
Re: Would you buy...
WAtch all videos of Ford Mustang being rolled out with tires made for high performace cars.
But once you follow that car then the dealership will ALWAYS replace the expensive tires with All season tires.
Moral collapse in judgement.
If this was Florida no matter the sin you get to keep your house.
Love this hate that.
It sounds nice on the surface but this sounds a lot like when Norton had crash guard putting all its windows hooks into the OS.
If you run a OS CLOUD deivce would then this type of inspection crash your cloud?
Inspection of VOIP? Expect bad sound quality because of this.
If anything I do hope this works out and nothing is required on the client side or else more CPU usage and people trying to run reports will complain that reports that used to take 10 minutes to report will now take 45 minutes. GOOD LUCK!
If people exand the research to the views expressed by NASA and other researchers they will find that all objects in outer space keep growing and keep getting stronger magnetic fields. The process will never stop and the same thing is happening to earth.
Earth will get so big one day where its gravitational pull will grab the moon and they will collide.
Even a rouge planet will after a fwe billion years if lucky will get so heavy it will again after a few billion years might grab its own moons and will condense into being a black hole or turn into a star.
They say Jupiter or Saturn is ripe to be a star but its gravitational mass is not strong enough but it will just take time then in a few million years perhaps earth will have 2 suns.
I do prefer a total Microsoft network and not some shoddy rickshaw network with Novell installed making the OS booting slow and cranky.
I am so happy NOVELL is going away. Buddy diagnosis. Is it the pc the network or novell netware messing up?
Now I have to put up with the Winddows 7 lock screen with the dings that keep reminding me of the Dpeche mode song called - Personal Jesus ...... After the lock screen dings I always whisper --- REACH OUT TOUCH FAITH!!
Easy logic. No followers and or not followign anyone else but under 3 posts that lead to links that are an advertisement for jobs or vitamins or sexual enhancement or blood pressure then the account is fake.
