Is that before they tortured people to death? Or burned people for being witches? Or suppressed science for centuries? Oh the humanities...

SQLite creator crucified after code of conduct warns devs to love God, and not kill, commit adultery, steal, curse...
On behalf of all Americans, I would like to apologize for the MORONS that now run the U.S. Government's most important agencies. We're in a pickle of sorts after this last election, and it will take an impeachment or two to get things right again. One of the deficiencies of our constitution was that there were no lower IQ limits on who could vote, nor who we may elect. Thus resulting in a clown car run government.
Again, my apologies.
If only AMD had joined forces with NVIDIA, this show we're watching would have been totally different.
Instead, they bought ATI, a shit company, with shit drivers. To this day, they still have shit drivers.
You can have the best graphic chip in the world, but if your drivers are SHIT, then, it's game over.
Did I say shit enough, so I'm done with shit.
On the other hand, I have a $180 AMD FX 9590 4.7GHz 8-core CPU with a LEPA Liquid Cooler LPWAC240-HF which totally rocks. The liquid cooler barely keeps the chip from melting when it's at 100 percent usage. I still love it, the bang for the buck cannot be denied.
I'll just say this, and you all know it, if AMD goes under, we'll all pay much higher prices for CPUs. Intel is already expensive for the processing power/price ratio, but your ass will get prison raped if AMD is not there to compete. Some corporate people have bought into the advertising bullshit that Intel is selling and wont buy AMD, even though in many cases that AMD cpu is exactly what they need to compete.
IF the reason
"...The dominant purpose of the exit charge was not to raise revenue but rather to regulate conduct by discouraging the export of capital to protect the domestic economy,"
If the reason they (SA) took that money was to PROTECT the SA economy, then logic says when a big transfer into the country's bank system, the depositor should get 20m also. IN/OUT, balance, you can't argue with that.
Clueless to the clueless
And what Chinese plan could possibly be successful for BB. BB can't make a phone that the Chinese will buy at a price that BB can make a profit on. The only plan is to STAY out of china. These types of statements like BB makes, that makes it clear NOT to invest in their company and to SHORT IT.
I see you have a epidemic
I see you have a epidemic of 'moron' spreading through your government also. We here in the US have had it for years. Many attempts to eradicate it in politicians has failed. No one will take the stern steps needed to kill it. Those horrific measures needed, such as intelligent VOTING for good clean politicians, seem to be beyond the capabilities of normal 'persons'. True, finding a clean politician is an oxymoron in itself, we must keep trying. Good luck on your endevours, I've pretty much lost hope here in the United Corporations of Amerika (UCA), aka NSA Homeland. (We lost the USA a long time ago).
Re: Excellent PR
And don't you know, EVERYONE is a target until proven innocent. That's the way NSA works. Collect it all, let "insert program name here" sort it out later.
I'll say it again. I have no problem with the CIA/NSA etc, doing data collection, but only where a warrant was issued. You can't tell me that in the 21st century, you can't email a judge and in 5 minutes have a warrant.
And really, no juicy pics from any of that surveillance, what's the world coming to ?? /jk

Re: The Fourth Amendment says...
It's a sad (der) day in amerika, the United Corporations of Amerika (UCA), no longer the USA. The real story is the State Dept, which pushes corporate weapons contracts around the world, needs the NSA for intel. It has nothing to do with terrorists. It's all about the money.
I'm trying to get everyone I know here to vote Independent and cut all ties to corporate money. It's the ONLY WAY we'll be free again. The gov has put the constitution into the shredder and does not care about the citizenry.
So the NSA will read this, here's some of the code words they stupidly search for:

I'm laughing, really
There is only one way to safely transmit your info across the net. It has to be encrypted prior to transmission.
There is no other way around it.
You can encrypt all the links you want, you can encrypt whatever, it doesn't matter unless what leaves your computer is encrypted first.
I actually donate to my FLOSS developers.
I actually donate to my FLOSS developers and wish everyone would. I use Freemake, GIMP, LibreOffice etc. I donate when I find it has saved my bacon.
I do not donate to OpenOffice/LibreOffice as they've not fixed a terrible problem with their spell checker on upgrades.
The lack of donations to FLOSS devs does show the general low level humanity is at. We praise helping out the general public with social programs (health, transportation, etc), but look at the results. NO ONE DONATES. How can we function as a civilized society if we don't support the things that HELP everyone.
I just donated $50 to the philippines for the typhoon fund. How many of you have?
I'll make it simple. No DRM. What's so hard to understand about that. I'm not asking 'for' anything, I'm just asking for 'less'. Got a DRM infested product, KEEP IT, I don't want it. WHAT IS SO HARD to understand. I feel like i"m talking to a 5 year old. Hollywood, apple, RIAA, etc, just can't figure it out.
Just say no to DRM. NO NO NO.
Pigs really do fly.
In a perfect world, I really wouldn't mind the NSA to have ALL the data and use it when tasked to catch the bad guys.
But this is not a perfect world and I live in the country of the United Corporations of Amerika where I am now NOT safe from my own government.
Snowden is a hero.

Oh the expections of the 'customer'
"Indeed, 'a person has no legitimate expectation of privacy in information he voluntarily turns over to third parties.'"
To think, I send a mail to a 'recipient' and expect it to get to the person, without the post office scanning the sender address, and scanning the contents of my letter. I do have a LEGITIMATE EXPECTATION of privacy. This is not pirates on the sea, or the pony express.
What is so wrong with MY expectation of privacy. Nothing I say! What is wrong is the 'corporate' view that THEY assume have the right to inspect that letter, envelope and all. Everything is wrong with that thought process.
Wrong wrong wrong!
Mail is a service, free or not, but does not give the 'service provider' the right to inspect the contents. Why even do we have to go to court over something so simple. GOOGLE, do not do evil.
