Re: Infinite monkeys?
That isn't probability - that is odds or chance.

Probabilities - wiki? load of bollocks. A truly random number has no probable outcome nor odds. Any sequence can appear in an infinite number: if it is probable then is is random? yes and no - the cat is dead or alive.
The probability of me winning the lottery is 50% - I either win it or don't.
"No. Like many other Brits living in Europe, I was denied a vote despite this being a matter of supreme importance to me."
So if you are living in Europe (what ever that is) why should _you_ have a vote for the UK to leave/stay in Europe anyway? Obviously you went to work abroad to make more money etc. Oxymoron.
Live in England. Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland - then maybe you could have voted.
"Not an absurd possibility judging from the rate of signatures being received per hour. This defiance of acceptance of the result is something that is not going to go away."
Utter bollocks. The UK voted. Result.
So if this petition succeeds, then what's the point of any other electoral vote ever? Why bother to vote at all?
Losers are losers.
I have read all the threads on here.
What don't you people get? The UK had vote on the EU (my first one ever, even being 56 years old) and the LEAVE vote won. That's it. LEAVE won. No matter how much you squinny, LEAVE WON.
So give it a rest.
LEAVE won. England will now be England again, Wales will now be Wales again. I can't speak for the others.
I presume you all had a vote/bothered to vote? If not, tough luck, it's too late now to be a cry baby.
Good point - but us humans have an input filter called the ears - you can ignore the input (at your option - some people swear, some don't etc.) when heard and the option to reply is likewise or not or opposite. AI can't do that (at the moment) unless you FILTER through a sieve which isn't discretionary. Then it isn't AI.
"Why don't you just fuck off"
"No, you fuck off!"
"Fuck you, I am trying my best"
"Hang on, I am just the messenger, don't shoot me!"
And of course, MP:
Fix the link:
This made me laugh a lot.
MS just haven't got a bloody clue. I mean, why, WHY on earth is the bot a girl between those ages - and WHY a girl?
This is all taboo in current trends on the *net.
If I were to do the same experiment, then I would use something like Arnie's 'Terminator' so that there is something unknown and hopefully get it to train to be nice (or robotic).
I just wish MS would get lost with all their shite they pump out.
Good comment - this is what I thought - why would GNU/Linux ~ Unix people want to run MS stuff on *nix boxes anyway? If somebody needs to run it, they run MS stuff.
OK, so if MS think they can get away with getting *nix users to run their stuff, then more licences etc., but how that does work out?
This is surely the first move - embrace.
"You're blaming Group Policies for having a crap IT department/System Administrator? Do you blame your browser because your broadband line is slow?"
No - I am blaming MS for allowing crap IT people to be able to administer their shite, and to be honest, there is so much AV and anti-this/anti-that stuff that needs to be run on MS machines now it is bordering on useless functionality. I mean, 8/9 minute boot up time. How much does that cost Industry?
"This underlying hardware must therefore implement the SAI, an API that Microsoft contributed to the Open Compute Project (OCP) in 2015. The OCP, launched by Facebook in 2011, encourages hardware manufacturers to produce generic gear to the project's open standards and specifications so large organizations can buy the machines cheaply in bulk and use software to customize and control the gear as they wish."
Now get everybody to use it, and slowly change the API/hardware over a few years until you have to use the MS version otherwise it all goes tits-up.
Come on people, this is typical MS history.
Hope we are all not fools.
...and also, Mr. Cracker (not a hacker) has to know where to look and when to listen to get this job done.
Now, I hope the major banking sites et al are OK.
You could really relate this to say that 70% of homes in the UK have the wrong fuse fitted on electrical items and it could be dangerous - but in reality it isn't - but might be.
... I think around 1995 (when I first connected to the Internet), it seemed a great idea - and got better and better (how on earth did I pay my bills and stuff? I can't remember).
Now, 21 years later it seems to be going backwards, and becoming more of a liability than an asset.
What to do people?
