White House petitioned to save those in hot cars

Kurusuki Re:Just Do It (13 comments)

I've replaced 4 car windows so far. I now feel obliged to keep signs on all my windows explaining that my hybrid is on, that the AC is on, that it is cooler inside the car than outside, that hybrids can be very quiet when they are turned on.

Why I can't be a liberal

Kurusuki Are you for or against being for or against (15 comments)

Are you saying we need to exterminate homosexuality, divorce, and free trade? I don't understand if you stand for or against the topics you list. You're all over the place without ever actually asserting a concise stance on what you're arguing. "Gay marriage doesn't matter to me anymore. After all the attacks and vandalism, I wouldn't vote for those people if they were trying to save baby whales.", what attacks and vandalism? who wouldn't you vote for? Your frequent use of ambiguous pronouns with little or no context makes me feel you didn't really think through what you wanted to say. Instead, it seems, you simply started ranting without remaining aware of where you are in your own thought process, or to what you were actually trying to say.

Electronics Arts CEO ousted in wake of SimCity launch disaster

Kurusuki not really (2 comments)

Considering they already have another CEO lined up, and the amount of time and preparation that goes into finding and vetting another CEO, I highly doubt this transition has anything to do with the SimCity debacle.

Utah to Teach USA is a Republic, not a Democracy

Kurusuki It actually is... (1 comments)

... more of a republic than a democracy. Do you get a ballot and vote on every bill that is ever voted on? No? Not a democracy then.

Microsoft Bans Open Source From the Windows Market

Kurusuki MS Protection; Not an open source slam (566 comments)

It's not saying Open Source is banned. The idea of open source does not make something free to distribute or make derivative works. The clauses copied in other comments are simply license requirements which cannot be used in licenses intended to be used in software distributed on Microsoft's network. Think of it this way, you can open your source; you can't require source distribution in your license, you can't allow derivative works to be created of your software, and you can't allow redistribution at no cost. These are clearly protecting Microsoft's interests as a marketplace. If someone were to purchase your software off their marketplace, and the licenses allowed free redistribution, nothing would prevent that individual from then giving away the 'app' to all his or her friends for free. If it was licensed for derivative works the individual could make a minor change and freely distribute the derivative work. The source code clause has me a bit confounded, but I believe it may be to mitigate risks and liability for Microsoft.

This legalese would not limit an app author from releasing the source, on their own website for example. Lastly, remember open source does not implicitly mean free. See Unix.

Holy Softbook Destruction, Batman!

Kurusuki Double standard? (1 comments)

Lets have a bible burning, then we'll take the torah as some real fuel and throw on the US constitution and the declaration of independence. While we're at it, lets toss a heap of American flags into the inferno. Surely this wouldn't phase anyone in those communities, I mean, the stuff is just garbage anyway right?

McDonalds Facing Lawsuit for Happy Meal Toys

Kurusuki Umm, what? (1 comments)

Let's go through this.

Parent decides to buy child McDonalds over cooking or any other fast food chain.
Parent decides to purchase a happy meal.
Parent decides to leave the toy in the food container before giving it to child.

It's McDonalds' fault children associate the food to happy emotions as a result of the toy. Clearly.

Videogames Should be a Sport in the Olympics

Kurusuki Golf... (1 comments)

... is not an Olympic event. If you want a gaming Olympics keep it separate from the ones we enjoy now. Watching people play video games is as boring as watching the grass grow. Some people are into that, I highly doubt the people who enjoy the Summer/Winter Olympics share that interest.

They applied for a patent for generating, displaying, and updating inline Sparklines using relative data from the spreadsheet their embedded in. They are NOT trying to patent sparklines themselves.
