China Gives Microsoft 20 Days To Respond To Competition Probe

Dishevel Re:And well they should. (64 comments)

I actually like Open Office better. The DOCX stuff should seriously just die. Most versions of MS Office can not even deal with it.

Dishevel Re:And well they should. (64 comments)

I use Open Office daily at work. We have many PCs running open office here. I allow MS Office on one computer at the office for fuckwads that can not figure out how to not send us DOCX. Works great.

Cool. A person who may disagree with me but has enough respect for the freedoms that made the US a great country (For a while).

What are you doing on /.?

Really? How many blacks think Jessie Jackson or Al Sharpton speak for the black community? Very few. It is the media that drives their importance. It is the media that drives hers.

the lives of how many women have been improved by her actions? Other than her.

Who cares. Video games also have rape, murder, aliens, bugs that talk, robots, magic, dragons and really bad physics.

Maybe people should get over it and be happy.

You have issues if you think that Al or Jessie are out there to help anyone other than Al or Jessie.

Well if Al and Jessie were not such great examples of this the world would be a better place.

Video game makers professionally do everything as "lazy and stupid" as they can get away with and still sell games.

Russian Military Forces Have Now Invaded Ukraine

Dishevel Re:Send in the drones! (825 comments)

So exactly what would us giving troops to the UN to go against the Russian invasion do. The security council must vote. Russia is a permanent member of that council with Veto power.

So. Even if we are willing to go that route ... It is a pointless way to go.

Add to that that the UN is just everything that is wrong with government multiplied by 10 and with no ability to make any real decisions. Hell the UN gave advanced computers to a country that the UN had decided should not have them. The UN can not even make a decision that the UN can follow, much less its member countries.

Russian Military Forces Have Now Invaded Ukraine

Dishevel Re: Putin: "Your move, West" (825 comments)

Yes. I am sure they will stop there. History says that if you just let them take one or two countries they will stop and all will be well.

It always works out that way.

Dishevel Re:Send in the drones! (825 comments)

No one wants to have a fight with the bully. That would be bad.

The problem is that previously we told the bully that he could do whatever he wants and we will do nothing. So the bully is doing what bullies do.

People say they do not want the US to be the "Cop of the World". That we do not need to be the "Big boy on the block". I do not think on the surface this is a horrible idea in theroy.

The problem is when you leave a vacuum in the power structure that is the world geo-political scene it gets filled. We do not just become a world without a powerful leader. Putin has stepped into that power vacuum and what ever you think of US foreign policy ... This is going to be bad.

Really bad.

You might want to look to the rest of my posts on this subject. If there was real death threats made I already stated that the perp should be prosecuted.

Also ...

I would rather have people spend less time finding ways to be professionally offended.

In no way states that I think we must stand and prevent her from doing what I think is wrong. I only stated that I would rather she not do it.

It was a single line clearly written. So either you never read my post and just attacked "because", or ...

You could find no way to attack what I said but really needed to attack anyway and just attacked me for for stuff I was very clear that I did not say.

This is not a very efficient way to get to the truth of a thing. I am leaning toward the assumption that getting to the truth of the subject here holds no real interest for you.

I have not taken her ability to do what she is doing away. I do not condone threats of violence against her.

I do not think that she is doing anything of value though. I think if she is worried about the women in her community they would be better served in other ways. Ways in which she lifts up real women instead of worrying about video game vixens,

Actually it will be solved as soon as "people like you" stop being hyper sensitive to every perceived slight against what ever you are currently defending.

Because video games do not have "brutal depictions of violence against men?"

No.

What I am saying is that the world is controlled right now by politically correct, professionally offended people. Everything everywhere is a stereotype.

Most decent people that are not praying on the simple for the existence of their jobs move on about their lives. You just do not see a bunch of men with real jobs and families to raise waste their time bitching about the horrors of ADT commercials.

90% of the time you see a person standing up yelling about inequality you can bet that the person doing the yelling is profiting off dividing people and pitching them against each other. Governments entire job right now is putting people into groups and getting them to hate each other while the whole time the politicians use it to gather more power for themselves.

What people should do is join their communities, use their communities instead of laws to fix the issues in their communities and be as responsible as they can be for their families, their friends and their neighbors. When 60 or 70% of us are doing this in an ongoing basis most of our other problems go away.

Though it is easier by far to stick a letter or a label on everyone you meet and judge them by that and then instead of getting involved to fix problem you see you can just look to your matching letters and tell them to pass a law to fix it. When it is not fixed you can then look to the letter that is not on you nad blame it on all the people with that damned letter.

Did you ever notice that in every commercial the dad is the stupid one?

That the white guy is always the burglar?

That the mom is always the smart savior?

I am really ok with the fact that men are not the weakest and stupidest characters in a video game.

It is expected. It is not legal though. Those that perpetrated this crime should be caught and punished.

That said. She is a stupid fucking bitch that should, nevertheless feel safe from physical threats of violence as she makes her way through her pathetic, retarded life.

FBI thinks Google is evil, Now.

Dishevel Dishevel writes  |  about a year ago

Dishevel (1105119) writes "In a story from Mike at TechDirt.
The last few weeks have been quite interesting in the world of NSLs, however. As we noted, a few weeks ago, a court in California ruled that NSLs were unconstitutional. And, now, it's come out that Google appears to be fighting an NSL, potentially in response to that very ruling. Of course, it appears that this news of Google fighting back wasn't supposed to be public either."

CNET steps in it again.

Dishevel Dishevel writes  |  about a year and a half ago

Dishevel writes "CNET finally comes clean.
At CES CNET voted that Dish networks "Hopper" would be best of show. Of course CBS, owner of CNET steped in to kill that due to pending litigation over the Hopper.

Well they have finally come clean about it.
Sort of. My favorite part is these two quotes from the editor in chief of CNET Lindsey Turrentine.
First.
"Going forward, I will do everything within my power to prevent this situation from happening again."
Followed by.
"If I had to face this dilemma again, I would not quit. I stand by my team and the years of work they have put into making CNET what it is."
Hmmm
 "
