Dish Network Violated Do-Not-Call 57 Million Times

Jaysyn Re:Cardholder services (246 comments)

Snicker. Another RW moron that doesn't know that Saint Reagan actually began the "Obamaphone" program.

"The Lifeline program originated in 1984, during the administration of Ronald Reagan; it was expanded in 1996, during the administration of Bill Clinton; and its first cellular provider service (SafeLink Wireless) was launched by TracFone in 2008, during the administration of George W. Bush. All of these milestones were passed prior to the advent of the Obama administration."

FCC Favors Net Neutrality

Jaysyn Re:Seriously? GOOD NEWS? (255 comments)

As someone who has planned & designed the physical plant that the Internet rides on for the better part of 20 years, you are hilariously uninformed. Go home Tea Party, you're drunk.

Called it.

These assholes are so predictable. If Obama cured cancer they'd accuse him of killing medical jobs.

A co-worker of mine is a resident alien (not a citizen, although she was married to one & could easily take the citizenship test if she wanted to), she also gets to vote for local elections here in FL.

Jaysyn Re:Stop developing 64bit (242 comments)

There is no earthly benefit to running Windows as 64bit

How about 16Gb+ RAM in ArcGIS or AutoCAD? You quite literally don't know what the fuck you are blabbering about.

Converting Joe SixPack

Jaysyn Jaysyn writes  |  more than 11 years ago

I just converted another friend (and his g/f) of mine from IE + Outlook to Firebird & Thunderbird. Usually they're hooked right about the time you show them the tabbed browsing. You just have to remember to install Flash for them while you're setting it up. That brings my total up to 7 people I've switched away from IE and/or Outlook. I think my Office is going to Thunderbird from Outlook soon, we don't uses Exchange so their really isn't a reason to use the MS virus propagation platform.
