Not so quick. CSS can be found outside the web now. GTK and QT for example.

Russian Government Edits Wikipedia On Flight MH17

Flammon Re:I don't see the problem. (667 comments)

Not that a Ukrainian error of identification would have been any more or less tragic, although it's less plausible since the separatists are not operating any air assets that I'm aware of so the Ukrainians are much more likely to be very conservative with regard to their anti-air grid.

Yes, but...

Malaysian Airlines MH17 plane was travelling almost the same route as Russia’s President Vladimir Putin’s jet shortly before the crash that killed 298, Interfax news agency reports citing sources.

And the planes look almost identical. Have a look. http://rt.com/news/173672-mala...

Russia Moves From Summer Time To Standard Time

Flammon It's a distraction! (158 comments)

The mainstream media is distracting you from what's really going on is Russia.

Anyhow, before condemning their new laws, have a look that what the FCC says.

Obscene Broadcasts Are Prohibited at All Times

Obscene material is not protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution and cannot be broadcast at any time. The Supreme Court has established that, to be obscene, material must meet a three-pronged test:

  • An average person, applying contemporary community standards, must find that the material, as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest;
  • The material must depict or describe, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by applicable law; and
  • The material, taken as a whole, must lack serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.

Flammon Re:ah (228 comments)

If you're not agreeing with them, but just rolling over, then you deserve what you get.

Will you be paying their legal bill? No? Then STFU.

One Developer's Experience With Real Life Bitrot Under HFS+

Flammon Re:Btrfs (396 comments)

There are varying degrees of stability and I felt that after 7 years of development, official inclusion into the Linux kernel, Facebook deployment and the default fs on OpenSUSE that it's good enough for my laptop, workstation and a few other systems. Having that said, I've not migrated by backup drives yet, they're still on XFS. It may be a while until I migrate those. http://www.phoronix.com/scan.p...

Seattle Approves $15 Per Hour Minimum Wage

Flammon Re:Even higher! (1040 comments)

I was going to mod you up but it seems pointless. When it comes to economics, the crowd here is so out of touch that anyone who brings up a reasonable argument gets burried. The illusion that we can get stuff for free has bamboozled the vast majority of people but the rude awakening is near and anyone who's paying attention knows it. You'll need hard assets to ride the next imminent downturn.

Computer Game Reveals 'Space-Time' Neurons In the Eye

Flammon Duck! (105 comments)

The first time I experienced this affect was a few year ago while I was walking in some local trails. All of a sudden my body ducked and only after did I realise that I was about to hit a low hanging tree branch. Our mind is living in the past.

How 'Fast Lanes' Will Change the Internet

Flammon Re:Real Solution (192 comments)

Instead of using force to break things up, I would remove the laws that give large corporations an advantage and special privileges over smaller companies. The problem however is that most of these laws are sponsored by the large corporations and the corruption is rampant. We can either take our government back, in a possibly painful and bloody revolution or reduce the size of government to make it a less effective weapon for large corporations.
