Calif. Court Rules Businesses Must Reimburse Cell Phone Bills

RightSaidFred99 Whiny bullshit. (161 comments)

If you don't want to use your personal phone for work, don't. Easy peasy. You could even tell a white lie and say you don't have one.

I think the solution here is for companies to provide ca. 1995 brick cell phones to employees. "Oh, you want reimbursed? Turns out we'll provide you a phone, here you go big guy" (proceeds to hand employee a 9 oz phone with no screen). They could even not go that crazy and give out the lamest feature phones they can find. I guarantee you the whiners will be all "Oh, uhh, nevermind."

Google Spots Explicit Images of a Child In Man's Email, Tips Off Police

RightSaidFred99 Re:Good riddance (790 comments)

Most humorous to me is that you think you could possibly trust someone else anyway. It would be security theater. Your data is going over the Internet and to someone else's server, then over the Internet to someone _else's_ computer. It's going to backups, possibly at both ends.

You are a fool if you think it can be secured, and an even bigger fool if you think you can trust companies or employees not to search or read it regardless of the law.

RightSaidFred99 Re:Good riddance (790 comments)

Oh toss off. You and everyone else are too lazy to worry about using encryption that you want to run crying to the government to protect you.

Fuck off. If you don't like what Google does with the free email service they provide you, don't fucking use it you entitled wanker.

The Misleading Fliers Comcast Used To Kill Off a Local Internet Competitor

RightSaidFred99 Re:Get used to this... (250 comments)

Corporations are not people and never have been and the SC has never ruled that they are. Corporations are, however, comprised of people and as such that group of people have free speech rights.

Anonymous's Latest Target: Boston Children's Hospital

RightSaidFred99 Re:Unbelievable and disgusting abuse of state powe (329 comments)

Bunch of nonsense, all you hear is the parents' (who are possibly abusing their daughter) side.

Have you ever heard of Munchausen by proxy syndrome? I can't imagine you haven't.

Aereo To SCOTUS: Shut Us Down and You Shut Down Cloud Storage

RightSaidFred99 Re:Real problem was law letting the networks charg (342 comments)

"Let them"? It's amusing you think you are "letting" someone do with their content as they wish. It's almost like you think you are entitled to their work in some bizarre way because you like to watch content they product.

You won't win. Period. Sorry, content costs money to produce and distribute and doesn't "want to be free".

Google Buys Drone Maker Titan Aerospace

RightSaidFred99 Nice for rural areas.. (41 comments)

But wireless is fundamentally inferior to wired, I'd much rather have fiber in metro areas in terms of home internet. Mobile internet? Hells yeah, this could do an end-run around the big carriers. If Google truly wanted to "do no evil" they'd build a kickass flying infrastructure system and then lease it out to providers to sell.

Ask Slashdot: How To Start With Linux In the Workplace?

RightSaidFred99 Re:Lol don't (452 comments)

What an asinine comment. So nobody should ever do anything new because, well, it's already been around for decades in some form or another.

Powershell is different from the UNIX shell environment. In some ways things are more difficult, in others much much easier and cleaner.

What does a neckbeard like you get out of this? Powershell isn't bash and sucks! What I get a kick out of is the plethora of bullshit UNIX shells and how they get a pass, even though they all have their own little quirks. Back when I was stuck on 70's technology, the rule was always use 'sh' for scripts, not csh/tcsh - those can be used for interactive but are poor choices for scripts.

Nowadays? Pfft, people using 'bash', 'sh', 'tcsh', it's a god damn mess. Then you have the cool kids using Python (Perl is so old school now, apparently, though it's 50X better for most routine UNIX scripting).

Don't be a tard, nobody will take you seriously.

Rich, coming from someone who probably thinks Linux and Python (the current rage in OSS development) are hot new shit.

You neckbeards crack me up. Stuck in 1993, but pointing fingers at everyone else as "Yesterday's Technology".

The New 'One Microsoft' Is Finally Poised For the Future

RightSaidFred99 Re:doubt it (270 comments)

Nobody who knows anything is buying what you're selling. OpenStack is shit. Complete shit and will continue to be shit for at least 2 more years.

Your blathering indicates you know not what the fuck you're talking about and live in a prickly neckbeard bubble.

The New 'One Microsoft' Is Finally Poised For the Future

RightSaidFred99 Re:doubt it (270 comments)

OpenStack? Fucking please. I have to deal with that monstrosity at work. Good. Fucking. Luck. It's a piece of shit, a mishmash of half-working shit thrown together in more of a cloud "framework" you can maybe make work if you have 50 people to put on it than a "product". Mirantis (and others) have sprung up around it trying to make it something moderately less miserable to install and manage, but even the "easy mode" OpenStack is incredibly hard in a large, complex enterprise environment.

But it's definitely got momentum, I'll give you that. It's complete _shit_ compared to Azure, but Azure is also a different product - you can't (fully and well) install Azure in your own enterprise.

So to some degree they are different beasts. But if Microsoft were to focus on making Azure something you could deploy on-premises easily Openstack would be an epic fail in just about every way in comparison.

RightSaidFred99 Re:Good for devs. (270 comments)

WCF is still around because it works ridiculously well for SOAP based web services over multiple types of transports. There's nothing better.

Of course, REST is now where all the cool kids are going, but then again all the cool kids are using Web Scale MongoDB and Rubython with Djangeroo and WebFlops Celery, or whatever ridiculous mishmash of bullshit is popular now.
