You must be new here. This is where neckbeards go to whine that it isn't 1997 anymore.

Apple Doesn't Design For Yesterday

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Apple's take on Windows 8 (360 comments)

Pfft. In my day, we hid in the grass, sometimes burrowing in the dirt while roving clouds of predatory birds seeked us out for food and we liked it.

Apple Doesn't Design For Yesterday

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Apple thinks ~100 dpi is the past (360 comments)

It is hard, because changing the font changes drastically how things look in terms of spacing. Mac applications all need to conform to a standard. Especially if they plan on doing new designs around that font that would look odd in the old one. People with older hardware will likely need to stay on the older OSes.

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Slashdot Response (763 comments)

It is a great twist of logic to put a wooden house in the backyard and then say it is holding up the house. I dont think this is the example you were meaning to relate.

DoJ: Law Enforcement Can Impersonate People On Facebook

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Insane (191 comments)

You can blame the damn War on Drugs, coupled with the fact that these guys get free military equipment. Some small ass town of 1000 people probably has a police dept. with a tank.

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Tesla is worth 60% of GM ! (267 comments)

Actually, I believe they did get a government bailout. bail out by dept of energy

I believe they were about to go under and they got propped up by the DOE and the Obama Administration. They've already paid everything off and now they are of course doing a good job of keeping it going.
