Indeed...I still have version 2.95. Was the last best version they had, IMO.

World's Youngest Microsoft Certificated Professional Is Five Years Old

CheshireDragon Re:Goddamn it! (276 comments)

The CCNA exam was like this when they first changed it back in October of 2013. It USED to be heavy on, CLI commands, network knowledge, etc. Now it's heavy on troubleshooting and essential to have a lab at home for break/fix.

She must not have read her syllabus and I think it's time to move.
My son is such a nerd he went as an improper fraction for Halloween. He's 10.

More Eye Candy Coming To Windows 10

CheshireDragon Re:how pretty (209 comments)

I am talking about the system functionality. What the hell requires sound or serious graphics on a daily basis in Linux? nothing that I have used yet. Of course, an admin only needs command line ;)

Oracle Database Certifications Are No Longer Permanent

CheshireDragon Re:Key question (108 comments)

Maybe.
I work in a Cisco environment, but have no CCNA. They don't give a damn if I have a CCNA. They asked if I can troubleshoot and come to a resolution in reasonable time.
Been doing it 7yrs now.

Debian Switching Back To GNOME As the Default Desktop

CheshireDragon Re:Why not KDE (403 comments)

I believe the 16 stood for the MHz, not the RAM size. 16 and 33 were common MHz speeds for the 386.

Emma Watson Leaked Photo Threat Was a Plot To Attack 4chan

CheshireDragon Re:Emma Watson is full of it (590 comments)

Nice to know you are dating all the 'bitches' because that leaves all the nice ones for me. Go dutch dumbass. Ask up front and they are usually shill about it. Even at the end of a lunch/dinner I've had most women ask the waiter/waitress for separate checks as if they thought I was going to pay in the first place. As the other responder said, you'd probably find nicer girls if you acted like a better person.

ISIS Bans Math and Social Studies For Children

CheshireDragon Re:they will defeat themselves (981 comments)

Apparently you don't know what happened in the Arabic world back in the 1100s. They were amazing with math and science. Leaders of the world in that matter. Then came a long Al Ghazali and turned all of that on its head. Now look at the Arabic world. Still looks like they live in the 12th century.

What percentage of your media consumption is streamed?

CheshireDragon Re:Not sure... (152 comments)

Use a VPN. Currently only Hulu are a bunch of dicks that don't allow VPN. Netflix and YouTube still allow VPN.

What percentage of your media consumption is streamed?

CheshireDragon Re:Definitions (152 comments)

This is what i was wondering. I have several TB of movies and about 10GB of music that is all stored on a custom built NAS in a 4u rack mount case. Storage my friend...anyway, this is what I(and my roommates) stream most of our movies/music from in the house. Other times, only for movies and music we don't yet have we use Pandora, Spotify, Netflix or Hulu. If it's only what comes from the ISP/Internet side then that's about 20%...if you want to count what is streamed internally as well, it's about 90%.

^^ I second this. I am in the USA, but I don't give one or even two fucks about where the site is located. Currently it is located on my TV, in my bedroom, right in front of me. That is where it needs to be for optimum viewing experience.

Study: People Would Rather Be Shocked Than Be Alone With Their Thoughts

CheshireDragon Re:How fitting (333 comments)

I'll add to this since I am an introvert, but I also have Claustrophobia and Anthropophobia on a more mild level. It doesn't keep me locked up in a house like Agoraphobia.
A) I do need money so I have a job where I go into an office and play around on networks all day and have very little interaction with my coworkers face to face. We use MS Lync, mostly, to communicate. Its use makes it VERY easy for me to talk to people.
B) Who needs a mate? opposite sex is nothing, but a problem. However, I've realized that I am more of the problem in a relationship so I stay away rather than get my heart ripped out every couple years.
C) If I need to go to the store to shop for food then I usually work up the courage and go late at night when the crowds are minimal OR I go with one of my roommates and they pretty much act as a 'handler' or distraction to everything else that is going on. That way the crowds of people at the store aren't so bad. For clothing and most everything else I need I can buy online and have delivered right to my door.

Also I'd like to know what survey you did that paid you 50$. The last time I took a survey was about a decade ago and they were only going to pay me 3$. I asked for 5$ so I could actually buy lunch and they walked away. Cheap bastards! Last time I remember getting 50$ for other than an hour worth of work was when I donated plasma. Twice a week and get 30$ for the first visit and 20$ for the second visit.

CheshireDragon Re:Bears? (333 comments)

Limited protection. But the 2 things you should ALWAYS carry on you are a hatchet(or knife) and a lighter. If you get lost out in the wilderness those two things can be rather helpful.
