Free Copy of the Sims 2 Contains SecuROM

Imrik Re:Anybody know? (230 comments)

I don't know about all versions of windows, but in at least some of them you can see all the processes, you just can't directly affect ones from other users.

Verizon Now Throttling Top 'Unlimited' Subscribers On 4G LTE

Imrik Re:1 or 1 million (271 comments)

To me it depends somewhat on how many towers are considered high-demand. If there's only a few it's fine, but if it's virtually every tower in an urban area, that's a problem.

Imrik Re:1 or 1 million (271 comments)

So why are they only doing this to people who have already paid off their phone?

Man Booted From Southwest Flight and Threatened With Arrest After Critical Tweet

Imrik Re:Is there an SWA Twitter police? (890 comments)

For all we know she may have personal issues like a violent ex or stalker that would make that just as threatening.

Man Booted From Southwest Flight and Threatened With Arrest After Critical Tweet

Imrik Re:RUDEST PASSENGER EVER (890 comments)

You're right, I suppose the agent would probably have been willing to let them preboard as unaccompanied minors if he had been willing to pay the extra $50 apiece, slightly more than upgrading their tickets for early boarding would cost.

Man Booted From Southwest Flight and Threatened With Arrest After Critical Tweet

Imrik Re:this story is missing information (890 comments)

As I pointed out in at least some of the places that people have claimed that, she was following SW's policy. He did not have any small children and unlike Delta and some other airlines, SW doesn't allow sharing of frequent flier status.

Imrik Re:Is there an SWA Twitter police? (890 comments)

If you included my real name and address I might take it as threatening even if no actual threat is made.

IMO, he was perfectly justified to complain about the policy or about the anonymous agent. If he wanted to complain about the agent by name, he should have filed a complaint with the airlines rather than post it for anyone to see.

Man Booted From Southwest Flight and Threatened With Arrest After Critical Tweet

Imrik Re:almost should have let her call (890 comments)

She wasn't threatening arrest over a tweet, she was threatening to ask him to leave the plane over a tweet. The police were just if he refused to leave the plane once asked.

If you ask someone to leave your business (which an airplane effectively is) and they don't, they're trespassing.

Or to restrict your complaints to the policy that she enforced or at least to not include the agent's name and location in your tweet.

Man Booted From Southwest Flight and Threatened With Arrest After Critical Tweet

Imrik Re:this story is missing information (890 comments)

He was allowed on the plane, at the appropriate boarding time. Then he tweeted about a rude agent that was following company policy, giving her name and location. He was then informed that the agent felt threatened by that and would ask him to leave the plane if he didn't remove the tweet, he removed it and was allowed to fly.

Imrik Re:2nd tweet (890 comments)

Once he'd been asked to leave and didn't he would be trespassing.

Imrik Re:Is there an SWA Twitter police? (890 comments)

It wasn't over a tweet critical of SW's policy that he was threatened, it was over a tweet that gave the agent's name and location that he was threatened. One is a reasonable reaction, the other can be seen as a potential threat to the agent.

Imrik Re: RUDEST PASSENGER EVER (890 comments)

He's a frequent flier and wanted to board his kids as such. Also, his kids were old enough that they didn't qualify as small kids.

Imrik Re:RUDEST PASSENGER EVER (890 comments)

From what I understand, the agent effectively offered to let the minors on as unaccompanied minors. This was obviously not ideal for the person accompanying them but he was almost as resistant to boarding at the time that he paid for.

Imrik Re: Customer service? (890 comments)

Load back to front, unload front to back. No need to move the door, just change which people you let on first. Note that this wouldn't work for this airline as they do ad hoc seating.

Dealing With 'Advertising Pollution'

Imrik Re:i'm glad to work for free (394 comments)

The idea isn't to get you to click, though they'd like that. The idea is that when you want a product like what they're advertising, you'll think of the one that was advertised.

Dealing With 'Advertising Pollution'

Imrik Re:i'm glad to work for free (394 comments)

Unfortunately, they'll probably eventually make it so you still have to wait the 30 seconds, in which case you might as well just play the ad.
