Re: Socially distanced

Did you just provide some logic and and facts on the Interwebz, FOR SHAME, FOR SHAME !

The morons that drank the Musk Bath Water are up in arms defending der great leader. Now that Trump is almost in Jail, Musk is next. Can't wait. I predict Musk will be bankrupt by the end of 2023.

WatchThunderf00t on youtube for entertaining videos of the bullshit Musk spouts.

Elon Musk needs more cash for Twitter buy after Tesla margin loan lapses

Dylan Fahey

Busted !

Just search for Musk Busted on youtube and you'll be pleasantly entertained. HyperFlop, Electfuge Trucks, Boring Tunnels on the cheap. This charlatan Musk must go. He's an expert on getting government tax breaks and grants, nothing more. He also can entice politicians into giving him hard earned tax money from the citizens to some of his dream projects.

Toshiba formally and finally exits laptop business

I remember those days

I have a 20MB HD in my XT monochrome monitor with 2 each 5 1/4 in floppy drives! I didn't even know what a file system was. That 20MB hard drive was very expensive and I got it off the 'home market' as it was very hard to find available where I was stationed.

FCC under fire for trying to ditch cybersecurity

Dylan Fahey

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.

Did I just say anus?

The cover story is for a smart bra, but we know what this is, and although these new incontinence undies are upside down, we were wondering about where to attach the wires for the anus evac system?

Where's Fox Mulder

Hey, I'm sick and tired of NASA taking pictures of the open spaces on planets and moons. They always hide the cites and highways that the aliens use.

How to waste two years and lose $415m: Cisco's now-dead Whiptail deal

I agree, once you get some 'self - important' egotistical, non-social asshole' in the mix, you're just fucked.

Pray for AMD

Dylan Fahey

If only...

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.

Ubuntu daddy Mark Shuttleworth loses fight to cancel $20m bank fee

Dylan Fahey

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.

Config file wipe blunder caused deadly Airbus A400M crash – claim

The computer games I play daily, have more safeguards than that jet. My game won't start without configuration files, and CRC checks on files.

Maybe EA should take over development (/joke).

That DRM support in Firefox you never asked for? It's here

Dylan Fahey

The madhouse continues

And I see there are still morons that think DRM makes sense for the consumer. These are the same people that burst into flames when they see someone else having fun.

So long, Cyanogen! OnePlus says its future belongs to OxygenOS

Don't buy any of their phones, why? ...

...when asked whether it would be open source software, Pei responded with a flat "no."

I don't buy any ZTE phones either, they don't release their OPEN SOURCE CODE, which is a direct violation of the GPL.

That's Six people they hired to downvote.

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.

Let me google that for you: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=adblockplus

Goooooogle is not the only search engine and people are not 'forced' to use it. I don't see the problem, maybe there is something deeper?

Re: Department of the Obvious....

And I can guarantee that NONE of the LM folks working on the project are actually LM employees. They are sub-contractors for LM. Everyone is at the 'grain shoot' getting their share. Shit product, no one cares, they got their monies and are gone.

Australia floats website blocks and ISP liability to stop copyright thieves

Dylan Fahey

I always see these strange stories from Australia

I always see these strange stories from Australia, don't the citizens have some sort of 'voting' system where they can throw these moron politicians out on their ear?

They can't possible be as stupid on the idiots here in the states?

UK Parliament rubber-stamps EMERGENCY data grab 'n' keep bill

Dylan Fahey

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).

Ye'all can keep your snide remarks



Dylan Fahey

If only...

If only we spent as much on 'helping' our neighbors with clean water plants, power plants, cheap communication access, we'd be rolling in the riches of cooperation and team work.

Instead, we brew fear, insecurity, and hate. WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.

'Arrogant' Snowden putting lives at risk, says NSA's deputy spyboss

Dylan Fahey

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

Obama reveals tiny NSA reforms ... aka reforming your view of the NSA

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.

Silly repuglican in Amerika!

Snowden did what he did, because he loves 'americans'. Not because he hates Amerika.

He's not going to dump his most valuable commodity to the ruskies, that's just plain BS by repug morons.

Love live all whistle blowers like Snowden and ANON.

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.

GIMP flees SourceForge over dodgy ads and installer

Dylan Fahey

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?

Web daddy Tim Berners-Lee: DRMed HTML least of all evils

Dylan Fahey


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.
