Statisticians Study Who Was Helped Most By Obamacare

SargentDU Re:Dupes (739 comments)

Benjowler, when over half of the people decide to let others work and sweat to make the money and then use the political process to take it from them to support the ones who won't work, the nation is doomed to fall into poverty. This redistribution will probably convince many tired working people to just do as the majority and throw in the towel and get on the government dole too.

SargentDU Mutated copy? (31 comments)

So a mutated copy caused the results in mice. How about unmutated copies? They did not answer the question did they?

Measles Outbreak In NYC

SargentDU Re:A bit of common sense maybe? (747 comments)

As far as I know, Italy does not have the Constitution of the United States of North America; so I do not see your logic here.

SargentDU Re:ballmer was right (248 comments)

Interesting you say that, Henry Ford used Dodge brothers axles for years and I am sure he sourced many other parts for the cars from others in Detroit too.

SargentDU Re:PIZZA! (459 comments)

The salt is your incentive to drink beer with the pizza. The saltier, the more beer you buy. It works well for the restaurant. :)

'Google Buses' Are Bad For Cities, Says New York MTA Official

SargentDU Re:Ain't no body got time for that (606 comments)

Well, renovation of buildings tend to cost more than razing the place and building to your needs. My work is an example. The building my state government office is in was built to be a small junior college that out grew it and moved out. The building was rebuilt leaving the main parts of the two floors but neglecting the basement and the only reason was the political flack if the building had been razed scared the people who controlled the money, and it was rebuilt, but cost 1.5 times the cost of razing and building to need would have.

AMD's Kaveri APU Debuts With GCN-based Radeon Graphics

SargentDU How about competition on price? (123 comments)

The summary did not state what the prices are. Are they cheaper to buy than the Intel chips they are being compared with?

SargentDU Re:Smaller landing area? (87 comments)

Hanging out up in the air does make you an easy target, just sayin'. Being on the ground for pickup does have many advantages (both doors could be used for hurried entry.)

How Munich Abandoned Microsoft for Open Source

SargentDU Re:reasons... (294 comments)

@zlives ... No, for freedom, is how I read it. They had older machines that worked fine with Win2K but would not work well with XP or newer, so they decided to migrate to Linux for the freedom from having to do as their Computer Operating System Company demanded. This way, they could upgrade the hardware as they saw fit to upgrade.

Apple 27-inch iMac With Intel's Haswell Inside Tested

SargentDU Re:Macs are still pretty... (241 comments)

Our work IMacs are pretty kicking machines. We have 2012 models with 3.4 GHz Intel Core I7s, 24 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 and 1 TB harddrives networked with Apple Servers and our up time is wonderful. Our support is a 3 person crew with only one really doing the hardware or software maintenance while the others keep the DBs and other special software going. Other agencies depend on the organizations ITD and they have windows machines but cannot boast of the uptime and productivity we have.

SargentDU Re:"And these guys still work there" (622 comments)

I supposed she was talking about those who performed the raid as still working there. And if they went there for guns, taking her notes would be off limits would not they be?

Is Choice a Problem For Android?

SargentDU Re:Somewhat lacking in logic. (361 comments)

Good point AC, I would think these website or even hard-copy publishers would dive in to the vast range of possibilities given in Linux to make these comparisons (hopefully in an unbiased manner) and show viewers the features, differences, advantages or deterrents of each of the distributions and their variants. If the word got out, they should have a good amount of traffic on their websites.

MAVEN Mission To Mars Will Proceed, Despite Shutdown

SargentDU Re:The Shutdown is a lie (87 comments)

Well, You are a Loon yourself. You throwing such thoughts as coming from me must be a reflection of your own thoughts because I never thought anyone should die. Name calling is so intellectual of you. I only reflected it to show your lameness.
