You can't pump your own gas in Oregon, it must be pumped by an attendant. Except between certain hours at gas stations a certain distance from
populated areas civilization. The attendants don't clean your windshield or check your oil, and they hold down the lever 'til the gas runs down your fender, trying to get your purchase up to the next full dollar. New Jersey has the same stupid law, but they elected Chris ("Donuts") Christie, so what can you expect?
But no Olympic-size pool?
Trump's previous comments about immigration have helped derail his executive orders to regulate it. Pai's invocation of unrelated subjects, like preventing deranged demagogues from speaking on campus, may have the same result, when his attempt to rewrite history hits the courts. Which it surely will. This
administration regime keeps acting like a dictatorship, and keeps getting slapped down. Fortunately, it's unlikely they'll endure past 2020.
When you see El Vulture circling, you'd better look alive!
Most humans don't get sarcasm!
We need to see examples of Mr. Meyer's photos. There may be more to this story than meets the eye.
Is augmented empathy. The Way The World Is, you're more likely to see violence than social lalala on Facebook. Did Zuck ever look at Usenet back in the day? FB needs to find ways to interdict the violent stuff faster, before they try selling Zuck's 115th dream.
Went to Panopticlick with same extension settings I use everywhere, and it just sat there ticking, doing nothing. Had to successively allow four scripts before it would scan my system. Chrome + ScriptBlock, making the web great again.
Fast food sales have been declining for a few years, so no surprise BK is trying to harness Wikipedia to sell their flame-broiled fat. They might try selling healthier food, but instead they've introduced hot dogs and some weird variation on fries, made with chicken, I think.
Sounds like Trump at a campaign rally.
The Federal Trade Commission and the American Guild of Organists have reached a tentative settlement over rules that restrict competition. The guild will no longer restrain members from soliciting work as musicians and will stop issuing compensation schedules and model contract provisions.
The settlement, which is subject to a 30-day comment period, follows a 17-month agency investigation.
Should have stuck to watching cat vids.
In 2007 I was traveling by train somewhere in the UK. I sat in the Quiet Car, where some bonehead proceeded to get talking on his cell phone. The other passengers didn't stay quiet for long. You start letting people who MUST SHOUT when talking on the phone to use them on planes and the carpets will be soaked with blood. That's the best reason to ban them. Except for me, of course.
Mark Shuttleworth had a bad day. In other news, some people hate [name of OS].
They have witches, we have (
insert your choice here, I couldn't decideMelania Trump)
When I'm away, my home PC is set to YouTube cat videos, autoplay ON. That should give Big Bro hours of pleasure.
In short Trump can easily play 2 to 3 rounds for every time Obama played one round.
You think Resort Owner Trump isn't billing the US government for President Trump's (and his entourage) use of the resorts? The government is building him a helipad at Mar-a-Largo. You think they'll tear it up when he gets kicked out of office, or let him keep it so he can add it to the resale value? This guy is the biggest swindler ever to disgrace the office of president, and we've had a few.
If you look at what he's done in the first 65 days since being in office, he's done a lot
If you count failing in two campaign-promised major initiatives, all the while making up conspiracy theories to cover his ineptitude, doing "a lot," I suppose you're right. Most people, however, expect something more from a president.
What if the Sharknado trilogy wasn't fiction, but was a warning?
Bad day in Redmond.
They're obviously not putting saltpeter in the potatoes anymore.
If I told the truth: I don't have any social-media accounts. Fortunately, I'm a U.S. citizen, and thus exempt from all this spying.
They have AOL and Yahoo! Who's next?
Love the links!
Is what you get every time you read about Yahoo!, Adobe et al.
I went through a similar "casual conversation" with a nice young man at the El Al terminal at Newark Airport in 1997, before even being allowed to get my boarding pass. The flight was Newark-Stansted-Tel Aviv. After a few minutes of "conversation," the NYM would walk away to consult with an older man, then return for more chatting.
Used to happen to me most Friday nights.
Right away, the GOP wants to roll back securities regulations imposed after the latest market crash, and roll back environmental regulations that save lives as well. It should come as no surprise that capitalists are going to act in their own best interest when Cheetobrains rocks the boat. And they'll get their way. Did you honestly believe we have a government "of, by and for the people?"
The recent imperial orders regarding immigration are perfect examples of how Cheetobrains operates. He throws out a diktat that surely will be squashed by the courts. Then he "negotiates" back to something almost as egregious, but which looks "reasonable" in comparison with the original thrust. Silicon Valley will get what it wants, and so will Cheetobrains. All he wants is to remain in the spotlight. If he has to keep playing Celebrity Asshole to do so, what does he care? Thinking is such a bore.
"Wait, did you say Mexico? I was asked never to return to Mexico. There was some trouble with the cartels and some explosions..."
Best one yet. Have a few ----->
With or without frickin lasers?
The FSM, seen climbing out of the river in the photo, has blessed Hull. Pasta be unto them! (And beer.)
Buy you kit now, while you still can afford it.
Juan Cole explains:
You may be confused, as an English speaker. Trump, a billionaire real estate developer and serial grifter who founded a phony university that defrauded thousands, has appointed a cabinet of billionaires and multi-millionaires, the wealthiest and most elite cabinet in American history, which even includes the CEO of petroleum giant Exxon-Mobil.
How, you might ask, can he represent this coup by the super-rich as ‘giving’ power ‘back to’ ‘the people’? The people wouldn’t even be allowed on the grounds of the gated communities where Trump’s officials live.
The confusion arises from thinking in English instead of 1930s German. “Das Volk” or the people was a mystical conception for the German far right. It comprised the German people as an organic whole, uniting great landlord and lowly peasant. The great German corporations, too, were said to be expressions of “the people” (Hence the German automobile company Volkswagen, now led by perfectly nice people but not so much in the 1930s). The phrase comes into focus if you understand “the people” as “white Protestants and some lately admitted ethnic Catholics” who are united across social class (though of course led by their billionaire betters), and who stand in contrast to the cosmopolitans, the mixed-race people, infiltrating minorities, the socialists and others bent on diluting “the people” and subverting its prosperity and power by kowtowing to foreigners.
Congress needs to pass laws requiring that any presidential directives must be >140 characters and sent in one lot. That will put the brakes on Tw-ump.
Windows 10 is the way to go -- if you've got work to do.
And yet, so many of us are working now (well, not at the moment), using Windows 7, and having no problems.
EDIT: Actually it's still up, just that the name doesn't resolve any more
It's only in English and Spanish. Rudyevich must have taken it offline to add Russian.
A concept browser from about 2000 that had floating links from past page loads swimming around the window. And some other, forgettable, stuff. It may have used a Java engine. It was cranky on my Win98SE machine of the time, and didn't offer anything more than entertainment. Ad-free, pop-up-free, Flash-free content, folks. That's what we need.
Turn off the snooping.
That is all.
If it hit an ocean.
There is no justice.
I've always wondered where all the zombies in the woods in Walking Dead come from.The nearest Trump rally.
Exposing incompetence WRT online security, okay. Sending threatening calls and otherwise harassing public officials? Epic. Fail. Hope he had fun while it lasted.
Wikipedia had banner ads?
Trump will put off getting the intel briefing until next week? Wow, that's presidential --NOT!
There was a method to prevent Windows 10 from invading your PC. Unfortunately, there was no way to prevent Trump from invading the White House.
(Such as El Reg.) Otherwise I'd never know what was happening on "social" media.
