Find me a replacement for Excel then. A real replacement, not some crappy OpenOffice thing that has 80% of the features.

RCMP Arrest Canadian Teen For Heartbleed Exploit

Russ1642 Re:LOL CANADA LOL (104 comments)

If you compare their failures to those of other police forces they don't even come close. They're in another league. They may get some publicity but I'd far rather deal with the RCMP than a city cop. The RCMP may have had a few incidents, but city police forces are corrupt from the top down.

RCMP Arrest Canadian Teen For Heartbleed Exploit

Russ1642 Re:LOL CANADA LOL (104 comments)

You guys will never understand the RCMP. They're probably one of the last competent police forces on the planet, and the vast majority of Canadians respects them. Our city or provincial police forces on the other hand...

Vintage 1960s Era Film Shows IRS Defending Its Use of Computers

Russ1642 Re:Uproar? (146 comments)

How many people do you think use cash at the self checkout? I didn't know you even could. The places I've seen you'd have to do the cash transaction with the person monitoring the machines.

New French Law Prohibits After-Hours Work Emails

Russ1642 Re:At least someone appreciates work-life balance (477 comments)

I've been working three eight hour days per week for quite a while now. I know it bugs the other people in the office but all you have to do is ask for it when you interview for the job. I make enough to be comfortable with that many hours and I'm sure there are LOTS of people that make enough to be ok with far less than 40 hours too. They're giving up a large portion of their life to work they don't need to be doing. Just think, you could have permanent four day weekends too. There's nothing stopping you.

Australia Declares Homeopathy Nonsense, Urges Doctors to Inform Patients

Russ1642 Re:If this were the US.... (408 comments)

This is a political topic, whether you want it to be or not. It's politics that allows this sort of crap to persist in the US because people should be allowed to do whatever they want, up to and including completely ripping off their fellow man.
