Fuck the Queen I don't even know why we are still attached to England, little nonsensical things like this when it comes to royalty makes me hate the whole situation more.

Shamelessly stolen from another forum :)

Hewlett-Packard is undergoing a massive overhaul. CEO Léo Apotheker is going to turn HP into another IBM.

 ie: Focus on the enterprise, Govt, and commercial markets.
 => Cloud, software, and solutions.


 How will they do that?

(1) Kill off WebOS platform.

 => http://www.anandtech.com/show/4653/h...uture-of-webos

(2) Sell or spin off Personal Systems Group (PSG).
 => http://www.anandtech.com/show/4654/h...-systems-group
 => http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=22490
 (PSG is responsible for consumer and business client systems like desktops and notebooks.)

(3) Acquire cloud search-software specialist: Autonomy for around US$10 Billion

 If you want it in more official terms...

Big changes ahead. After all HP makes nearly 20 percent of the world's PC's. Not that they will be missed, HP consumer stuff sucks (the business gear is good though)

I've been working on a similar thing recently, a bit more customisable than Opera's speed dial obviously.

I hope you support free software because I'm stealing your shit :)

I use it when I'm too lazy to solve algebraic equations for my maths assignments. Great site.

Hey, guys, this is a bit of a crazy idea, but maybe both proprietary and free software could exist at the same time and cause progress to society at their own paces?
Both philosophies have discovered new technologies so I think this is fair to say.

« on: August 16, 2011, 07:51:28 AM »
I've decided to dual boot Windows 7 and Linux and I'm debating about what distro to use. Here are my specs (copypasta):

Processor:                          Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU       T5270 @ 1.40GHz    1.40 GHz
Installed Memory (RAM):    2.00 GB
System Type:                     32-bit Operating System

Suggestions?


Most warm and wonderful of gentlemen:
The advice of this gentleman would be to cease and desist any and all thoughts of installing the operating system know as "Debian" and/or "Linux" in general.  You will spend many nights weeping until your eyes become dry, wondering why the kernel will not compile.  You will ask yourself "Why did I install this piece of shit?  And how do I get rid of it now that it is on my system."

I beg of you to reconsider.  Please kind sir!
Warmest and most delightful of regards,
sirTheMore

Someone should test this on Rollercoaster Tycoon.

Other option: Buy a cheap gamepad.

Had a similar issue trying to use a Guitar Hero controller to play Frets on Fire. Now if I could just remember how I ended up making it work...

Why is this necessary? It's more work for moderators and it just gives other site members another place to complain and bitch about every ban that is handed out.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: London Riots
« on: August 09, 2011, 09:33:35 PM »
You make it sound like the children are not rioters. They are wearing balaclavas, are raiding the shops and are mugging people using their enormous numbers. At what height should a person be before you hit them with a night-stick? You can't guess age from someone in a hoody covering their face. Is it ok if they hit the teenage girls too? They're just scum after all.
"Won't somebody please think of the children?!"

Dude they aren't going to randomly fire into crowds, they target the individuals who are causing problems. I highly doubt that would encompass these 11-12 year olds, of which there would be very few anyway.

Fuck I hate when people use children as an excuse to win sympathy.

Can't stand watching riots, it just irritates the hell out of me. Most of them don't even know what they are rioting about it's just an excuse to go destroy things and steal stuff. Particularly damaging other people's property, what do they have to do with it?

Interested.

Was it perhaps related to the alt "NotPizzaPlanet" ?

Certainly it was .
Well this is weird. I suspect that  the one who is not PizzaPlanet is also not frostee

In my experience, religion tends to amplify the kind of person you are.

Insult is noted, but I was stating what I believe - not looking for an argument.

I think I can agree to disagree with Raist, and I do respect what he says on quite a few other issues.
How was that an insult  ???

Unless the state in question is run by morons and put .com addresses instead of .gov or .us

That's probably the case.  California and Utah's are .gov, but Wyoming's is .wy.us.  I'm pretty sure this is legit.

Yes.

ccTLDs were never intended to be used as most countries use them today; they were supposed to be further broken down by geographical region. For example, an Internet site at my old University might have had camperdown.sydney.nsw.au. This geographical division of the ccTLD namespace is in contrast with the administrative division of the gTLD namespace, which is broken down by organisation -- for example, my old University's physics department has physics.usyd.edu.au (note the corrupted, but nowadays perfectly standard use of administrative labels underneath the geographical .au ccTLD).

Thus, wy.us is one of the few examples of ccTLD use as originally intended.

Nice one! You've been before then?
No I haven't, but upon purchasing a bottle you can claim one square foot of land (which I did) Interestingly, in a roundabout way I can kind of all myself a Lord because of it :P

I have however been to the Glenfiddich distillery (when I was very young)
