Linux Nukes 386 Support

Dark Coder Is it PAE or isn't it? (464 comments)

Woe is me who wants to determine whether the kernal is actually using PAE or not.

And no, you cannot tell by solely by detecting for the pae flag in the /proc/cpuinfo virtual file.

Innocence of Muslims Filmmaker Arrested, Jailed

Dark Coder He is not who we think he is.... (747 comments)

"Innocence of Muslims" was produced by Islamists.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is Meth-dealer-Egyptian-Coptic-anti-Muslim-activist-fundamentalist-Christian. Then on the other hand, Eiad Salameh appears to be a Muslim-fundamentalist-Palestinian-scam-artist-terrorist.

We're being duped again (and that includes me as well) by the ill-informed Media.

Walid Shoebat has the drop on these guys on his blog.

Facebook, Others Giving User Private Data To Advertisers

Dark Coder Sound of .... (154 comments)

There's a sad sort of leaking
From Facebook on your wall
And the info on your profile, too
And out to the advertise
An absurd little Zuckerburg... See More
Is popping out to say boo-hoo
(boo-hoo, boo-hoo)

boo-hoo Regretfully they tell us
boo-hoo But firmly they compel us
to be a dumb fuck
boo-hoo
To you

So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodnight
I hate to go and leave this pretty site

(Children)
So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, adieu
(Zuckerburg)
What's new, what's new
To you and you and you

(chorus)
Who care, farewell
Au revoir, Auf Weidersehen

I'd like to stay
And play my first farmville
(talking to my boss) yes?
(boss) no!

(chorus)
So long, farewell
Auf Weidersehen, goodbye

I leave and heave
A sigh and say goodbye
Goodbye

I'm glad to go
I cannot tell a lie

I flit, I float
I fleetly flee, I fly

Your Privacy's gone
Back to Reality, so must I

(chorus)So long, farewell
Auf Weidersehen, goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

Goodbye

Are Quirky Developers Brilliant Or Dangerous?

Dark Coder Re: brilliant and dangerous? (1134 comments)

Try hiring ANY decent coder that works with my former boss's highly impossible deadlines.

I'm with previous parents. A good fire extinguisher (Asperger's) is handy to have. Deadline gets met, even though the end-result (support and maintenance) sucks.

Most start-ups are in it for a quick and lucrative exit strategy (post IPO-sale).

Choosing a Replacement Email System For a University?

Dark Coder Re:Ask them two questions (485 comments)

Ok, so it's very secured between the University and Google Data Center.. Big whoop.

How secured is it when Google EULA states that sharing of your aggregates, University IP, patents, and relations with other GMail account holders (and god forbid, your personal) data with other nosey 3rd-party is very EXPECTED?

Worst Recession Ever?

Dark Coder Dark Coder writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Dark Coder (66759) writes "The Great Depression was extended by 5 years according to various economists due to debilitating Federal policies enacted by FDR. Five recent bills (Auto, Finance, Bank, Health-Care and Teacher Jobs) are touted as being similar to FDR's worsening policies. As a result, we're still sliding into a deeper recession. What does it take to get us out of this doldrums?"
