Pentagon Reportedly Hushed Up Chemical Weapons Finds In Iraq

EasyTarget Re:Designed in US, Built in EU, Filled in Iraq (376 comments)

...It's not clear if the contents of those weapons is still usable or whether ISIS has the technology to deploy them....

Oh so that's why the MIC and Fox are suddenly gushing this from their anus; they are trying to garner support for action against Isis. Pathetic.

ISIS Bans Math and Social Studies For Children

EasyTarget Re:Of course they do (981 comments)

No; they are FAILED engineers; nothing they create works properly; that's why they are trying to force the world to their will through violence, not intellect.

ISIS Bans Math and Social Studies For Children

EasyTarget Re:Anti-math and anti-science ... (981 comments)

That was my first thought; which caliphate? the one full of bigots and nutters in the middle east; or the one full of bigots and nutters that runs the US?

European Commission Reopens Google Antitrust Investigation

EasyTarget Re:Because it sucks when you can't compete..... (96 comments)

so SEO for them is a combination of guesswork and research (costs which Google don't have to pay, incidentally).

Are you for real; SEO is a wankers activity that directly harms consumers. The more 'Expensive' Google make it, the better, 'cos I wont shed any tears if the whole SEO crowd end up homeless.
As for the rest of your drivel; google maps comes top of the list because it is the most popular destination for Google users. Which part of that is too hard for you to understand?

Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

EasyTarget Re:It is the fault of.. (503 comments)

Religion and Nationalism are just flip sides of the same coin.

Neither is evil per-say; in fact both can be quite admirable; but they enable evil.

Following EU Ruling, BBC Article Excluded From Google Searches

EasyTarget Re:Who controls the past... (239 comments)

1984; the instruction manual for our lords and masters.

Google should create a special app/site for takedown requests, and call it 'Winston'.

Following EU Ruling, BBC Article Excluded From Google Searches

EasyTarget Re:Blaming Google (239 comments)

I don't know why the journalist is blaming Google for this ("So why has Google killed this example of my journalism?") when it's obvious they're not doing this voluntarily.

Because the people in charge are terrified of Google, the Internet, and their citizens use of it. So the BBC, kowtowing as usual to power, but still with enough journalistic testicles to make some form of protest, blames Google.. in the hope they can get away with it. Rather than pinning the blame on the corrupt shitpile of lawyers and wonks who forced Google to do this in a desperate attempt to make money the deciding factor in information control and suppression.

No; the remainder are too fuzzy to show anything clearly; or don't actually show anything inexplicable, but the up-loaders really seriously believe they do.

Fish-Eating Spiders More Common Than Thought

EasyTarget Re:Fish, not Flesh. (39 comments)

I was more thinking of how adding 'flesh eating' to any story makes it more exciting.
'Meat Eating' would be far less interesting, though technically more accurate.

Intel Confronts a Big Mobile Challenge: Native Compatibility

EasyTarget Re:Intel has no Android phone market share (230 comments)

I think they do that already; filter apps you see via a device compatibility matrix. Or is this only at a crude level to distinguish (say) Tablets from Phones, etc.

Cuba: US Using New Weapon Against Us -- Spam

EasyTarget Re:if i was in charge of an island nation (139 comments)

And Australia,
Plus pretty much all European states, China, and the rest of Asia, all the old-school Feudal middle eastern western 'allies', and Western/Chinese puppet governments in Africa.

And lets not forget that without net-neutrality the US is hardly providing equal access to any thought not being backed by big money.

Cuba: US Using New Weapon Against Us -- Spam

EasyTarget Re:The sheer volume! (139 comments)

It's 2009, networks were smaller then.

According to this there were just 300k mobiles in Cuba in 2008.

So it was actually an attempt to spam every person with a mobile in Cuba with pro-US propaganda. And it's just one of many such political spammings, and they still continue.

Is the West Building Its Own Iron Curtain?

EasyTarget Re:For everyone who said "what do you have to hide (337 comments)

On the other hand not having that data causes real problems to the whole society.

Yes; in particular it makes it very hard for Hungarian Nazi Wannabees to round everybody up in one go.
I think I can help though; that '100% of gipsies are claiming welfare' figure was shat out of a bigots arse.

Is the West Building Its Own Iron Curtain?

EasyTarget Re:For everyone who said "what do you have to hide (337 comments)

Lots of countries have 100% information sharing with the US.

It's not really sharing, in the traditional form of the word.

More like paying protection money, to be honest. I mean, you might get back something you can use against your political enemies (so long as they are Americas enemies too), but mostly you have to hand it over and not look them in eye; and all the while some thug is poking under your head of sate saying thing like 'this parliament looks a bit old to me, positively a fire hazard really, be a shame if it burned down.. what do you think?'

FreeBSD 10.0 Released

EasyTarget Re:VMware tools included (136 comments)

Do you really need VMWare tools?

Yes.

Things like Gui integrations are fine and handy/essential if you are virtualizing a desktop OS.

But even if setting up a headless virtual server that you never access on the console after sshd is running you should still use them in order to benefit from virtualized disk and network I/O. This can deliver decent speedups if your VM is bottlenecking in that area.

The drivers you want should be in ports, or a precompiled package for all common OS's. If this is not true for your VM system then you should be questioning the VM provider, not the guest OS, about why they are so hard to setup.
