Open Sarcasm Fighting Copyrighted Punctuation

SpydeZ Re:What it looks like (155 comments)

Alt+0161 is the upside-down exclamation mark. Which is also the character that OpenSarcasm is advocating. U-0161 is something else entirely.

Don't know why TFS confused the two.

Industrial Marijuana Farming Approved In Oakland

SpydeZ Re:That didn't take long (690 comments)

I get 30 of the 10mg Percocets a month for chronic migraines and chronic tension headaches (headaches all day every day suck...).

They helped a ton until I got a medication overuse headache (after ~3 or 4 months of daily use, in my case). Then I got into a horrible spiral of taking Percocet for a headache, which gave partial relief for 2-4 hours (usually), and was immediately followed by a worse headache. Lather, rinse, repeat.

So... moral is, more isn't always better, I guess. But yeah, 40 per half year is pathetically small if you get migraines or really bad tension headaches often and nothing else works. I didn't get addicted when I was taking 1-2 every weekday (and saving up on weekends to create a buffer). I got 20 or so sitting here, forlorn, while I try to get my MOH under control.

I trust you've tried all the tryptans, Migranal, muscle relaxants (if you get tension headaches), blood pressure medicine (beta blocker or calcium blocker (Verapamil is a favorite)), anti-convulsants (Topamax), SSRIs, TCAs, and whatever other crazy-ass guesses your neuro throws at you...

Intel To Challenge Android With Moblin For Mobile Devices

SpydeZ Re:Wait... how? (108 comments)

There's an entirely new network stack in VxWorks 6.6 or 6.7 (forget which). Hopefully Linksys et al won't be using the archaic 5.5.1 anymore... Wind River has been trying to get everyone to use 6.x for years. 5.5.1 is on life support, at this point.

Or maybe read Little Brother by Doctorow. And bring Doctorow with you, dressed in his red cape.

Accidentally mis-modded you.

This post is so my moderation will be remove, since I can't see any other way to undo moderation.

Nothing to see here, move along.
