ArsonSmith Re:Heavier than air flight is impossible (342 comments)

Needs? Zero. You can't eat it and it doesn't protect you from the elements. I'm sure you want a lot though.

Will Windows 10 Finally Address OS Decay?

ArsonSmith Re:Antecdotes != Evidence (577 comments)

I think that's exactly what this article is talking about. That single piece of shit software being some version of Windows that was either pre-installed or that they installed.

Non social or Unsocial. Antisocial is picking people off with a rifle from your front door as they walk/drive by.

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison Steps Down

ArsonSmith Re:Maybe just wishful thinking but... (142 comments)

The problem is what to infer out of a NULL, In some instances it should be Zero, like in my account balance example. In other instances it should be non-zero like in exit status. In other instances it should be non-existant/excluded from a list such as your example of a sting of numbers similar to monitoring something like cpu load.

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison Steps Down

ArsonSmith Re:Maybe just wishful thinking but... (142 comments)

Zero and Null are not completely different. If I look at the balance of money I have in a bank I do not use it is both Null and Zero. Where I've come into issue with this is when looking at exit status if you transform Null to Zero it becomes success rather than what would often be expected as failure.

Teaching College Is No Longer a Middle Class Job

ArsonSmith Re:Administrators (538 comments)

The examples you give of law enforcement and justice system come from the barrel of guns. If not guns then at the very least a strong over powering force.

Teaching College Is No Longer a Middle Class Job

ArsonSmith Re:Administrators (538 comments)

You miss the analogy. Let me help Infrastructure=fucking, payment to hooker=taxes, civilization=love. What you're paying for is not what you think you are getting.

Also, with a $6000 annual license fee for firearms I wouldn't really consider Jamaica a bastion of free armed society.

Nice try though.

ArsonSmith Re:Administrators (538 comments)

you point out how they are the same. The differences are simple. In capitalism you get to choose what layers of management are steeling from you. In leftism, you're stuck with a single source of theft.
