Best Places To Work In IT 2010

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:Bad places to work (205 comments)

Yes, companies fire people for being gay so they can get sued. I'm also really really sure that your statement with zero context is 100% factually correct.

Tom's Hardware On the Current Stable of Office Apps For Linux

You do realize that formatting it in a pdf will get you no job and branded as an asshat? If you don't want to provide a doc, don't send your resume to people that want it in that format. You feel probably that you're too good for them anyway.

Final Fight Brings Restrictive DRM To the PS3

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:If you don't like it don't buy it (240 comments)

it's more that some idealistic players go like 'boycott', everybody joins the assorted facebook/steam group and Sony trembles


... until the game comes out and everyone starts playing it.

South Park's Episode 201 — the Expurgated Version

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:You don't say (1224 comments)

Saying the word shit 216 times no matter in which context doesn't get you killed. Saying Mohammed in the wrong context does.

Volcanic Ash Heading Towards North America

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:UK MET-OFFICE (338 comments)

How do the Finnish airplanes fit in? It's all nice and dinky until an airplane experiences motor failure and it plummets down an urban center, right?

Iceland Volcano's Ash Grounds European Air Travel

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:Trains are awsome! (283 comments)

I don't have extensive flying experience, but I have very extensive train experience (work near to the trainstation in Brussels). In my experience with international trains (Brussels - Amsterdam) you can count your blessings if you got place to sit, let alone work. And don't get me started on local trains ... . Too bad not every train is a Thalys.

Iceland Volcano's Ash Grounds European Air Travel

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:Trains are awsome! (283 comments)

True. However, trains are notoriously bad at waiting so people don't miss their transfers (at least here in Belgium). I think that also should be taken into consideration.

Sony Refuses To Sanction PS3 "Other OS" Refunds

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:Objective done, Sony sales decreasing (396 comments)

because the people waiting for linux support on PS3 vastly outnumber those waiting for the exclusive games, right?

Iceland Volcano's Ash Grounds European Air Travel

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:Trains are awsome! (283 comments)

Cost also seems about the same. Go any further than paris or brussels and flying is almost certainly the quicker option and probablly cheaper

much, much cheaper. and especially much much MUCH faster. And easier to organize

Charleroi - Budapest with airplane: 2 hours, one airplane ticket
Brussels - Budapest with train: 15 hours or 20 hours, depending on the route you take. At least two tickets, no way you can reserve them all in one go.
Brussels - Budapest by car: around 13 hours

Warhammer Online Users Repeatedly Overbilled

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:Tip for those wanting fee refunds (216 comments)

True. However, a nice word now and then helps (or you can start by being polite). Remember, those people probably only hear people screaming obscenities (so to speak) at the phone or in their office. I'm not saying you should chat them up, but talking with two words( a rather arcane concept for some people) and a thank you now and then goes a long way.

(i'm not saying you don't act that way, but lots of people don't)

OpenTTD 1.0.0 Released

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:Is the AI any better? (107 comments)

The illiteracy is more an issue of time management and setting priorities. Computers are for some (most?) people a means to an end.

Journalists' Yahoo E-Mail Accounts Compromised In China

TheCowSaysMooNotBoo Re:Yahoo (130 comments)

Yeah, real journalists use their ISP's webmail (*cough*), their own servers (which can be confiscated) or their friends (also confiscateable). Then you have the possibility of offshore email accounts on an american friend's server (which will get blocked). At least when using webmail, the others have to either break in the servers (like they did in TFA) or subpoena them (which I don't see the Chinese govt. do tbh).
