Google Wants To Take Away Your Capslock Key

HishamMuhammad Re:How about å, ä, ö, and ø? (968 comments)

I guess you didn't get the joke about Columbus and Eriksson.

Hint: the A in ASCII stands for a land discovered by Leif Eriksson.

Visual Depiction of Who Is Suing Who in Mobile

HishamMuhammad Re:In spreadsheet form... (175 comments)

Best rendering so far!

Others focused in removing the crossing edges, which is an improvement, but this arrangement makes it easy to see who is suing and who is being sued.

Thank you!

Russian Spy Ring Needed Some Serious IT Help

HishamMuhammad Re:they're not spies, they're defectors (191 comments)

Hah, it had to be circletimessquare -- oh how I miss Kuro5hin and this kind of out-of-the-box thinking that used to come up there so often from you and the rest of the people. Too bad the place was filled with trolls to the point of unusability the last few times I tried to return.

Sudden Demand For Logicians On Wall Street

HishamMuhammad Re:Well at least... (525 comments)

Those of us in the rest of the world, who have been suffering being the weaker part in the worldwide marketplace game, we've been paying attention for much longer than two years.

IBM Breaks Open Source Patent Pledge

HishamMuhammad Re:Wake up and smell the stock market people... (359 comments)

You are merely being compensated for your expenditure of time and energy, not gouging someone.

I see your point (and I agree with Sloppy's point above) but, to nitpick, compensation of time and energy is gross profit (which even not-for-profit companies have to have, in order to remain operational, unless they're funded by a third party). The grandparent post was explicitly talking about net profit, which is what remains after all costs are compensated.

IBM Breaks Open Source Patent Pledge

HishamMuhammad Please mod parent back up! (359 comments)

How did people mod this down as troll? The parent expressed a valid opinion. It may be diametrically opposed to your core values, or even the core values your country is based on, but it's a valid, clearly-stated opinion. Don't use "Troll" as a synonym for "Disagree".

Come on people, we're no Thought Police here.

Microsoft and Apple Rumble Into Middle Age

HishamMuhammad "transformational change" (367 comments)

Yeah, that must be it. Transformational change -- not to be confused with metamorphic change, or modificational change.

Adobe Flash Now Officially a Part of Google Chrome

HishamMuhammad If the headline was true (168 comments) would mean "Google Chrome Now Officially Not Free Software".

Fortunately, it isn't.

Jetman Attempts Intercontinental Flight

HishamMuhammad If I defeat Jetman... (140 comments)

Do I keep his jet-powered wings? Are they useful for beating other bosses or is he too hard and I should get some other weapons first? Do you guys think I should defeat him before or after Cutman?

Does Obama Have a Problem At NASA?

HishamMuhammad Re:I hate to be an ass... (479 comments)

Your wikifu is weak young one.

And apparently your sense of humor too. I commend his choice from the array of options given by the disambiguation page, which has obviously been his (and your) first stop. He definitely picked the funniest one. ;)

Net Neutrality Opponent Calls Google a "Bandwidth Hog"

HishamMuhammad What? No mention of Alanis? (320 comments)

A misuse of the term "ironic" and no one has mentioned Alanis Morissette yet? Where is this world heading to?

more than 5 years ago


HishamMuhammad hasn't submitted any stories.
