Samsung Laptop Bug Is Not Linux Specific

AdamRosas OS boot entries are in NV storage (215 comments)

So installing too many operating system will result in a brick, Windows in particular uses a lot of NV storage for it's boot entry, be careful when using BCDEDIT.exe...

New York Passes Landmark Gun Law

AdamRosas Re:We need gas control! (1591 comments)

If you look into a class 3 weapons license you will find that a site inspection is required to ensure your automatic weapons are safely stored, as an owner of an "evil" AR-15 I would support similar requirements for ALL guns.

Hurt Locker Studio Begins Requesting Canadian ISP's Subscriber Info

AdamRosas Re:Seen this all before (172 comments)

I read somewhere that this firm tried to sue 10,000 people at one time during the US round's of The Hurt Locker lawsuits, and all but 2 were excluded pre-trial and the remaining 2 never made it to court. I think the story was from torrentfreak so who knows how accurate it is. If you contact these firms in any way they start harassing you until you pay, if you ignore them odds are you will never hear anything further from them.

Hurt Locker Studio Begins Requesting Canadian ISP's Subscriber Info

AdamRosas Re:Judgment Proof (172 comments)

I still choose to not play the game, If they decide to go forward with a lawsuit they will waste billable hours looking for assets, sources of income, etc. I have ignored a number of these pay up or we will sue you threats and they never escalate to a summons. don't feed these trolls. All this law firm is trying to do is get subscriber information so they can send a "pay up or well sue you" letter, they have little or no intention of taking anyone to court.

AdamRosas Judgment Proof (172 comments)

I am judgment proof (thanks to the crappy economy). So the only way to win is to not play the game. Ignore legal threats, ignore court summons, allow the default judgement, then file for bankruptcy which costs less than than hiring a lawyer.

NPD Group Analysts Say Windows 8 Sales Sluggish

AdamRosas Re:It isn't Windows 8 I find to be the barrier... (269 comments)

secure boot is not a requirement, but it is up to the OEM to allow you to disable it. If you buy a laptop you probably will be able to disable it, but I wouldn't be surprised if some OEM's chose to screw the users. and by some OEM's I mean Sony.

Lenovo UEFI Bug Only Likes Windows and RHEL

AdamRosas NOT an anti-Linux conspiracy (162 comments)

I had a very similar problem with an MSI motherboard, ANY boot entry that was not "Windows Boot Manager" would be removed from the firmware boot manager. I could boot Linux if I named the boot entry "Windows Boot Manager" after countless emails to tech support and patching the firmware myself MSI finally accepted it was a defect and fixed it. I believe the root cause of the problem was a bug in a function in the firmware boot manager that would remove stale UEFI boot entries (removable's, USB, DVD, etc) the bug would remove ALL the entries, SO they fixed it by using a string compare against "Windows Boot Manager" and the boot entry description, problem solved.
