Study Finds US Is an Oligarchy, Not a Democracy

RazorJ_2000 Truth! (818 comments)

Anyone in Canada could have told you that the US is an oligarchy. This is exactly what we've seen since at least the Reagan administration. The US is *NOT* a democracy - sorry to burst your bubble but it's the truth. The US has the appearance of a democracy but it is absolutely *NOT* a democracy.

Pi Calculated To Record 2.5 Trillion Digits

RazorJ_2000 Wrong base... (432 comments)

They can't find a pattern because they're doing their calculations using base 10. They should expand their minds and try using another base, perhaps 2. I bet there's a pattern using binary!!

Blizzard Confirms No LAN Support For Starcraft 2

RazorJ_2000 Goodbye SC2 (737 comments)

...and after being a fan and user of almost EVERY single Blizzard game since WarCraft I, I have now just dropped Blizzard and will not be purchasing SC2. Some of us actually want to use what we pay for by ourselves. And fuck having to connect to the 'net to use it.

The Secret Origins of Microsoft Office's Clippy

RazorJ_2000 Avatars are a great concept... (263 comments)

...it's just that Microsoft's initial implementation was poor IMHO. The whole concept is great. At my work, we have available a tremendous amount of online training through a combination of video and PDF, etc. The thing is that what Microsoft didn't study, or perhaps did but didn't understand is that since childhood, kids are raised to see cartoon charactors as, for the most part, a little retarded. So anyone seen using a cartoon charactor to teach them concepts and usage of a software program will be seen as being retarded.

I bet that if they had done a proper, professional, and serious implentation, that it might have gone better for them.

System Admin's Unit of Production?

RazorJ_2000 Simple question... simple answer (556 comments)

What you need to do is contact some other F150 companies and ask their senior IT admins/CTOs how they measure productivity. I work for a major investment firm and we have metrics for everything we do (even though we're private) because of two primary reasons:
1. its how you improve, and
2. its what our competitors do too.

Its that simple.

UAC in Windows 7: What a Joke!

RazorJ_2000 RazorJ_2000 writes  |  more than 5 years ago

RazorJ_2000 (164431) writes "So, apparently all of UAC (User Account Control) in Windows 7 can be disabled. With a small piece of VBScript. And Microsoft is, again, saying it's a "feature". Didn't that POS* marketing line go out with Vista, along with their so-called credibility? When will this company learn? You want serious software? Get serious programmers and get serious about it. Seriously.

* Piece of shit

Help! Pooched system upgrade...

RazorJ_2000 RazorJ_2000 writes  |  more than 5 years ago

RazorJ_2000 (164431) writes "Okay, I foolishly tried to upgrade my Fedora 8 KDE box to a Fedora 10 KDE box in one shot. And I managed to completely pooch the KDE GUI (non-working). Now, I can still sign into my box by command line terminal only, but realistically, how the hell do I get almost 80GB of my personal data off of the hard drive? (250GB SATA) I've already tried Knoppix and Puppy but they can't see the EXT3 partition where my data resides, only the boot partition. Yet when I sign into the system in command line only, I have no problem getting to my data. But it's just not realistic to manually copy a bazillion files and directories of personal data off the system. We're talking ebooks, software archives, email backups, my last couple of years of tax returns, etc. Important stuff. Suggestions? There is a DVD burner on the system. Any way of mass burning a couple of DVDs by command line?"
