Because $1,000,000/yr is just tacky.

>And before you down vote me: on your flight in 5 years time, do you want the flight control system written by exactly the 'correct' ethnic diversity of people, or the best people, regardless of ethnicity?
I'd rather have a plane that didn't fall out of the sky. None of the teams working on that problem seem to have figured it out yet.
I work at a SMB where our licensing costs for VSphere and Windows Datacenter (which we also license) are roughly the same. We've been running everything on VMWare products since VMWare Server 2 (the app you installed on top of Linux, back in the late 00's). Yes, we're paying for Datacenter to run on top of VSphere. We get really good deals on both of them, that will become untenable if our footprint gets much larger.
The one huge factor influencing the platform we're on is pricing. If we added too many more hosts than what we have now, VMWare would be out of the running purely on cost. Microsoft has their *entire history* working against them, so I don't really know what I can stomach once Dell prices themselves out of the running.
I don't ever want to spend $1000 on a tech bauble again. My wife bought a G7 Plus last year with the insurance check we received after her previous phone died. It does what she wants it to do and it seems to be a really nice device. I can't tell if it's supported by lineageos or not, but it doesn't seem like we need to take that step because the stock android install seems to be pretty much unfucked.
I'm still using a OnePlus One, but it can't last forever. If Motorola can keep this up, they're certainly on my list of replacements.
I did my y2k stint for NCR. Except they didn't know what equipment they had out there, so I spent the first two months of the job getting paid to stay at home playing video games while they figured out what they wanted me to do. After that, they sent me out across the country for training on how to identify their equipment, and then out across my home state to find it. Except their training and real life didn't match up, so they sent me back home again so they could figure out what was going on.
I made a lot of money for very little work. Goodness knows how much it actually cost them.
"When questioned by police after the robbery, Adams at first claimed he wasn’t at Target with them and knew nothing about the phones. He then changed his story and said he was there but didn’t know what was in the bag that Davis emerged from the store with. And then changed his story again and admitted he had in fact given Davis $100 to buy the two phones."
First of all, I had nothing to do with it! Second of all, someone else did it, I'm completely innocent. Third, okay I did do it but I did nothing wrong!
My hand is not a hammer. My hand is what I use to wield a hammer, with which I drive nails.
Github is not a version control system. Github is what I use to host my Git repositories, with which I control my versions.
A metaphor is a glorious thing. A diamond ring. The first day of Summer.
On the one hand, our cheeto-in-chief loves wikileaks, so clearly he won't be extraordinarily renditioned.
On the other hand, the deep state gonna deep, so clearly he will be extraordinarily renditioned.
The never-never-Trumpers get to have it both ways, whichever way it goes.

_Spec Ops: The Line_ was quite obviously a retelling of _Heart of Darkness_, but I felt the ending was a letdown because I didn't understand the guy at the end was talking to *me the player* and not John Walker(the PC).
I'll have to go back and play it again, but after I finish _Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain_. It's goofy, but it's deadly serious about being goofy.
The US Dollar is worth something because it is backed by the "full faith and credit" of the US government. Believe what you want about the full faith and credit of the US government. Why is Bitcoin worth anything? Because you can (maybe) sell one for some multiple of a US Dollar? How does that make sense?
Chuck-E-Cheese makes you put US Dollars into their changers to play their games, and you'll notice there isn't a CEC credit-to-US Dollar changer at the exit. Why is that? Sure, there are bigger suckers than you right now, but will they be there when you want to get out?
But here I am again, screaming into the
void Register comments section, which I said I wouldn't do. Dammit.
Why are you asking us?
Shirley, you know it won't, just as it won't on MickOS. And what makes you think IE mode would prevent MS from sucking down every last drop of the contents, once they've gone balls-deep on your computer? It's the entire shaft that's the problem. "IE Mode" would be grafting an additional set of seminal vesicles to the base of the browser that were aimed specifically at MS and not Google. So a delivery system that, while you enjoy it as well, does nothing but gratify MS.
This is why I decided to get off (ha!) the internet: so I don't feel the need to write things like this.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ethnic_slurs_by_ethnicity "List of ethnic slurs by ethnicity" I think I approve, wikipedia, but I'm not sure why
Simply because of how it works. What you really want is a magazine, or a TV network, or some other technology where the suckers consuming what you're producing have no choice in the matter. It might be my *fault* that my ad-blocking results in you not making any money, but it's certainly not my *problem*.
"why do people put up with billion dollar multi-national corporations telling them when, and how, they are allowed to play the music they have bought a license to listen to?"
I can't tell if you're joking, but that's literally what a license is -- an agreement that stipulates exactly how you can use the item being licensed.
