Windows Tax Shot Down In Italy

Meski Re:What about other devices? (418 comments)

Which I likely wouldn't do, myself, I'd keep the license and run it in a VM. I was suggesting it as a fix that'd keep the regulators quiet, I suppose.

Congress Can't Make Asteroid Mining Legal (But It's Trying, Anyway)

Meski Re:LOL (211 comments)

Not so much the rock itself, there's many similar rocks with similar minerals. It's all about the mining infrastructure you build there. Or about portable infrastructure that does the mining, for convenience lets call it a spaceship. Now if I was building such an object, it'd have a lot in the way of defence systems on it, to ensure that the blood shed would be someone else's...

German Court: Google Must Stop Ignoring Customer E-mails

Meski Re:Link Wrong? (287 comments)

When I click the link about the ruling I get taken to an article about Wire-Free laptops...

Iäm amazed at the concept of a wire-free laptop. Where do I get one? I need to replace my current wire-based laptop.

Isn't it silicon based? (etc etc silicon overlords)

Windows Tax Shot Down In Italy

Meski Re:What about other devices? (418 comments)

Ship it with Windows for 'most people' then, and have a revocation at activation time that refunds the OEM OS cost. And stops Windows running after 15 days or whatever. More red tape, but it might keep both the 'most people' and the Linux / etc users happy. And the court system. Mac/iOS/Android appear to have solved the issue in their own way by making the OS free. (as in beer)

'Just Let Me Code!'

Meski Re:Code the way you want... (372 comments)

More fun if you do Windows coding for a living, to do Atmel assembly coding for fun. Not coding against an unfriendly API (like Windows) really is fun. And if you happen to sell your for-fun code, it looks dissimilar enough to work code for your employer not to take an interest.

Microsoft's CEO Says He Wants to Unify Windows

Meski Argh, not enough coffee... (322 comments)

I read that as he wanted to uglify Windows. Of course, Ballmer's already BTDT. And trying to pick the prettiest Windows ever is like picking the tastiest catshit.

New Treatment Stops Type II Diabetes

Meski Re:There's another treatment that stops most T2 (253 comments)

Your last sentence is the answer, I think. "You don't know how to make healthy food that tastes and feels good" - well, it is harder and more time consuming to do it than to nuke another processed meal, but it is possible. Eventually you'll end up making healthy food you like more than the processed stuff.

New Treatment Stops Type II Diabetes

Meski Re:The End of Diabetes by Joel Fuhrman, M.D (253 comments)

Also, exercise does not help much with weight loss because it stimulates the appetite, even though exercise in general is good for health...

Not so much for me, I never feel less like eating than after gym sessions. Which is a problem because I typpically have plummeting BGL for the hours following. Grrr. More insulin tweaking.
