Glenn Beck Loses Dispute Over Parody Domain

1alpha7 Re:icing on the cake: (1172 comments)

" . . . take a look at how great the democrats have done in areas like detroit (falling apart more every day) or seattle (crime skyrocketing), southern california (rampant unemployment), new york (do i even need to say anything here). With out fail, blue leadership has been killing all our major cities."

Detroit is the result of being dependent on one industry that is changing, not "the democrats". Seattle does not have skyrocketing crime. Southern California's "rampant unemployment" is no different than many other parts of the country, such as Florida, where I live. No, you don't need to say anything about New York; its a vibrant, successful city, one of the great cities of the World. "All our major cities" do not have uniformly Democratic leadership, nor are they failing.

1alpha7 Re:They haven't "developed" anything (297 comments)

We designed one in the 50s. Did some serious research on the idea. When I was a kid in the 60s, it was still taken seriously.

A Different Perspective On Snow Leopard's Exchange Support

1alpha7 If this is his experience level . . . (276 comments)

"The Linux community, along with Google's new Android mobile platform, offer even less in terms of minimum standards and quality control, resulting in software that is often free but usually unfinished and typically inaccessible to anyone outside of dedicated tinkerers and hobbyists. While examples of fine open source client software exists, there is no available market driving this kind of development financially."

Lost in space? Does he use the same stuff I do?
