Are Googlers Too Smart For Their Own Good?

LOLLinux Re:Hint: "For Developers" Means "For Developers" (307 comments)

i mean that things like java are always oversimplifying programming, and there are a lot of people just cant understand things that are so simple because they are used with drag'n'drop interface, and they call themselves programmers...

The vast majority of Java programmers do server-side programming where there is no drag'n'drop interface so wtf are you talking about? Or are you one of those people who pretends to be a hardcore coder and bleats on about the manliness of C when you can't write anything beyond a basic Hello World program?

What does XAML have to do with SVG and vector graphics? XAML is just an XML based mark-up language.

Google Wants To Administer the First White Spaces

LOLLinux Re:Hmmmm... (112 comments)

An international boycott of Google could both change its plans quickly and perhaps put it out of business.

And such a thing actually happens, how often?

Except you can't guarantee that your well-structured and styled HTML or doc files will look exactly the same between all possible systems. With PDF you can.

Monty Wants To Save MySQL

LOLLinux Re:No he doesn't (371 comments)

Maybe, just maybe, they are interested by MySQL, would it be to kill it.

1) You can't kill GPL code.
2) If he was this worried about it he shouldn't have sold MySQL in the first place.

He's just butthurt because he can't make a closed-source fork of MySQL. Sorry, if I don't feel any sympathy at all for him and his billion dollars.

Monty Wants To Save MySQL

LOLLinux Re:Own fault (371 comments)

How can Oracle "kill" MySQL? Aren't we told over and over by GNU zealots that the GPL ensures that these projects will live on forever since the source code is always available? Isn't this why they rally against the BSD-like licenses?

Ginkgo Doesn't Improve Memory Or Cognitive Skills

LOLLinux Re:Maybe for dementia patients... (403 comments)

I've taken similar herbals expecting the same or better results and not realized any.

I take a 90mg gelcap and the effect lasts for about 3 hours every time.

It's pretty predictable to be placebo.

This does nothing to dispute the obvious placebo effect. In fact it does nothing but reinforce it. If you start telling patients who you are giving placebo pills that they are getting something other than what they expect the placebo effect is ruined. This is why things are done in blind manner (double-blind is best because then the people dispensing the medication don't know which is which) in drug studies. The proper way to eliminate the placebo effect is for you to not know you aren't still taking ginko pills but are given something else.

Ginkgo Doesn't Improve Memory Or Cognitive Skills

LOLLinux Re:Maybe for dementia patients... (403 comments)

More study is needed, and presenting a study which focuses exclusively on the elderly as saying "gingko doesn't work for anybody" is just as intellectually dishonest as "gingko seems to work for me, so it must be great for everybody!"

Yes, if I was doing what you say it would be dishonest, but this isn't the only study showing that the supposed benefits Ginko are hogwash. The only ones showing otherwise are funded by Ginko marketing firms.
