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.
They will be unable to regulate it for over 20 years.
Just download the latest ballast file then download the program and start churning out your own bitcoins.
Store your bitcoin info inside of a PGP file and no govt around the world can stop you unless they put you under house aresst and deny you internet for life.
The govts will just be jealous they are not getting a peice of the action.
Say it isn't so!
Hahaha! OMG I missed using ping of death tool!
My main reason for using the ping of death tool was when playing the original quake game you could see other peoples ip address who were connected to the hosted game server.
I would play and make note of anyone who cheated then promptly run POD tool and would blue screen their pc thus forcing them to reboot. I hated it when they patched it back then.
Reminds me of a company that boasted that users were unable to copy their picture off the internet.
I was able to copy their picture by opening notepad thus making the notepad app retain focus over the web browser then I made them show dide by side. my notepad on the right and the wbsite with image I was going to copy. notepad still retained focus then I hit printscreen(Prtscn) Then pasted the results to paint brush.
Ahhhh bypass complete making the website claim pure rubbish.
This might fail
This is what fears me the most!
Lets say all the Jane and John Does have atheletes foot and or farts a lot!
We need a fan system that makes sure the aire is vented downwards to the floor and fresh air from the top.
Well this is all good and nice but now the tube itself will be clogged up with foul old air.
What device will keep the air fresh and clean. Using air fresh spray cans will just make the air more toxic.
So this is the main reason why I think this transit system will fail in the long run.
Snowden looks Russian anyway. He will fit right in.
Not out of the game yet.
I am sure they will aquire some telephone celluar company startup or something to get what they need.
By the way it looks like they just might get what they want if not even if it was or was not Sprint.
They are not a second rate service. They service a niche market where people buy their service whereas they would have no internet at all. So something is better than nothing. So who would buy their service? Farmers. Or people who live so far away from the rest of humanity.
Scared for you brits
I wonder if or when or if already you are being taxed for watching streaming videos online and being taxed for doing so and calling it a TV tax still.
What a filthy ideology the govt over there you have!
The way APPLE ACTS.
They way Apple acts would be as if everyone got their way.
Many times I feel like the person banning certain apps is a bit eccentric and leans towards a certain religion thus that influences how people see software that shows up in the list.
If we could have a person who was religious neutral not against or for religion and would truly accept or deny apps on a secular basis and not on a basis of "MOTHER/FATHER" knows best.
I get that feeling that this is how apps are banned/denied at apple. I bet you 100% there is not a list but in someones head on how they think what merits a pull/yank.
May as well hire a super orthodox jewish man as leading the cause and delete all the games as well and any pretty girl girl screen saver.
Todays CIO's just introduce redtape and slow down response time to fixing computer issues by making tech sit down and fill out forms all day on the work they did using a software package called "change management"
Since we changed to change management software away from SAP People Soft not one of our tech's(20 of them have met their SLA's which is to close a ticket within 1 week.
Gee thanks CIO who thinks they know better! Dear People Soft we techies sure do miss you!

Peak oil is here and trying to use science to find every scrape of oil on earth will be done in vain but I am sure they will find other uses for the super cumputer such as creating new bit coins. One bit coin at this moment is equal to $67!
Re: Good or bad comments.
I also agree to what you say about in the above but when lets say someone bashes SUBGECT A and I try to flip the coin and feed it back to them and then get banned on facebook then I blame facebook immaturity at banning when I am just letting people taste their own medicine of their own making.
The above same did happen to me and the immature facebook staff with their certain political stance favored the other side when in fact all I wanted to do was to treat all humans as humans but the other side did not see it like that at all because their EQ is not very matured as of yet.
I do agree somewhat to that and yes its their own server but when you do post to have your viewpoints seen and to be read then it is best to have all comments treated fairly.
Sure yeah if I was an arse then yes delete my comments but if I flip the message against the subject topic against a message poster then they get their jimmies in a bunch and cry to the MODS to have my posts deleted. My point is to be treated fairly and knowing how the political stance is of facebook I already know how I will be treated. Is facebook at this moment fair? No. But all comments should be regarded as fine unless found to be in super bad taste.
Re: Good or bad comments.
Not what I meant.
Sure if the comments age sure let them die off the page perhaps but if by bumping on purpose just to kick off bad comments then yes that is just manipulation in the extreme and I am sure it will be just like that.
People who bump who they want to bump. Seems if I want to keep my comments in viewing then I must keep posting to get the relavant responses wanted or needed. Just need to fix any sort of way like Amazon does that prevents people from promoting their own story by hiding as a regular commenter.
Just saying they did not fully think this out and it will still be abused and will be used to hide comments that are not desired at all. WHich means they got a weak spine.
If you are a very social person
I am sure the host of a party will always remain at the top of all suggestions when searching on local parties and they will get first pickings to have their own comments to stay at the top.
It will be the person who does not have the connections who will be exiled out as a non human entity and that they do not matter to anyone except to their own mommy.
This will form a new eliteism on facebook. Oh I'm so sorry you can not comment here because you are NOTHING!
Good or bad comments.
I do like how good and bad comments can sway the public.
I mean sure yes that within 5 replies down the comment section each party will start calling the other party a nazi but it does not matter and that is where facebook fails to understand to uphold American principles of free speech. By hiding it by any method is not free speech and if they do not like free speech then perhaps they should leave America and get their services hosted elsewhere.
Lets say John and Jane Doe had a baby and the couple were made famous because they both had aids and they both transmitted he aids virus to the baby and now they get bad replies because they created a life failed to be doomed.
Who would be more valid? The people who just give hugs and kisses or the people who give replies such as "WE TOLD YOU SO!"
On an open forum neither should be up or down voted but remain neutral but if this page belonged to the family then they can up vote or down vote or even removed the abusive comments as they see fit.
In regarding to the generalities then this would mean that only famous people have their voice heard while the average joe may as well go play KICK THE CAN outside and turn his/her pc off.
The commenting system does though need to be improved but people do not like to see the real side of life so they like to filter the comments like their filter their coffee as they try to live in a fake world to keep out the truth and other political views that may harm their holodeck based mental fantasies that their right is the only right and nothing else matters.
Such is the case where posting political viewpoints and where the facebook keyboard army admins will delete anything ANTI-Israel and will delete anything that is remotely sane and humane such as treating people from all faiths with dignity and respect... Such as was in my case where one woman was so happy to see a bomb on the head of prophet muhammad and making points about towels on the heads of these people and making jokes about them.
So to point out her low IQ to her I flipped it and I replied: Let me make some art with a jar of urine and let me put the picture of your child and husband and picture of your god in that jar and let me call it art so that you can not banish me because it is now free speech.
No! Do not get angry lady! You wanted free speech against these towel heads so now you get the same medicine you gave to the muslims!
Oh!!! boy oh boy her hate must have sent her blood pressure through the roof and I made my point that she refused to treat each human being as an equal to find peace and humanity with all people of the earth and well you can guess she did not want that kind of equality and she complained and got my facebook account banned because I treated her just as harsh as she treated people NOT LIKE HER. But I am sure the neocons would have loved her.
No I am not a liberal or conservative. I am a centrist. Before you ask for yourself certain freedoms please make sure you allow it for others as well.
