How Red Hat Can Recapture Developer Interest

LduN not sexist (232 comments)

I'm not sexist or anything, but am I the only one that gets annoyed when people, in their strive to be as PC as possible, refer to a theoretical person by the female form as opposed to the male form? I mean it makes sense when talking about a field where it is women dominated, but how many women CIO's exist, compared to men?

LduN Re:What's the problem? (84 comments)

Forgot to mention that they also need to monitor closely all those "relevant" to the children... you know from immediate family to those people that happen to have possibly glimpsed the child on their drive/walk.

LduN Re:What's the problem? (84 comments)

But think of the children... at the very least we need the NSA to monitor 100% of everything going on with the kids when they are out of this federally funded testing site.

Long-range Electric Car World Speed Record Broken By Australian Students

LduN Re:Australia? (120 comments)

I guess because the air is warmer it's less dense, making this kind of record "easier"?

The record was set about 100k SW of Melbourne (Actually the Australian Automotive Research Centre near Anglesea) in Victoria, in Winter.

The temps there in the last week were around 12 Deg C (55 F)

So much for 'less dense' air

mid winter?!?! thats what we've been havin for the last week in mid summer!!! (yay Canada) :)
