Re: your latest purchase

And here the only machine I own with more than 4GB RAM is my Sun Blade 2000 that isn't even being used for anything at the moment...

Re: The Problem with Apple

MacOS back in the original era was something interesting - not without its flaws (*cough*multitasking*cough*memoryprotection*cough*) but it brought its own set of unique(-ish) ideas to the table and offered what was at the time one of the most consistent user experiences available in an OS. OSX, on ...

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

He emailed me personally to bitch about this in his usual barely-coherent fashion a couple months back, as well...guy's really got a screw loose.

You're that much closer to running an AI girlfriend on a G4, man!

Re: I've Had It With Firefox - Alternatives I'm Exploring

If they're complicit in actual criminal activity, they should be (and will be) held accountable by the law under normal due process. But part of what makes this country what it is that sympathizing with bad people isn't a crime. All of us have the right to be wrong, and the minute the government sta...

Re: I've Had It With Firefox - Alternatives I'm Exploring

Ain't nothin' illegal about having views, man. If there's evidence they're complicit in wrongdoing, then let the cops do what they do, but until then it's a free country and a free Internet.

Re: I've Had It With Firefox - Alternatives I'm Exploring

That said, Firefox is getting weird. Pocket and Firefox Accounts are ridiculous, Firefox Screenshots sends all screenshots to Mozilla servers, Yeah, this is another reason I'm not on main-line FF. The reinvention as a bad Chrome clone was bad enough, but the constant, desperate attempts to horn in ...

Re: Article: The Coming Software Apocalypse

I mean, if you want to bitch about the million zillion things being automated that probably shouldn't be, I'm totally on board with that. (Remember, kids: the only difference between a Tesla and a 5,000 lb. 150 mph. crowd-seeking motorized death missile is a clever hacker!) But fucksake, that is not...

Yep, that is some grade-A "article about programming written by someone who knows nothing about programming" right there.

Re: your latest purchase

I'd just like to know why in God's name anybody puts the Caps Lock key on these little tiny micro-keyboards. NOBODY USES CAPS LOCK. ALL IT DOES IS GET IN THE WAY. And that goes double when it's on an already-cramped keyboard, the same size as and immediately adjacent to one of the most common letter...

Oh, nifty. Reminds me, I should really pull out my RPi and screw around with RISC OS some more.
