Anonymous Now Attacking Corporate Fax Machines
So in short, the reason that faxes and cheques exist is that they are simple and inefficient.
There ya go.
Seagate To Pay Former Worker $1.9M For Phantom Job
More like: Turnabout is fair play, paybacks a bitch, you reap what you sow, Quit whining, you were the one that let the cat out of the bag.
Why Designers Hate Crowdsourcing
- My designer argues with me. 99Designs contestants listen to my needs and come back with modified work that addresses them.
You sound like the worst client in the world. You pay a real designer for their expertise, not their button pushing ability. They will tell you "no, seriously, setting things in 8pt knockout sans-serif is a bad idea." If they don't tell you that, that's them ripping you off, not "serving your needs." A designer who doesn't argue with you isn't worth having.
Bottom line: I don't think your designer will miss you.
PS: Your original designer was right about Photoshop. Transparent "punch outs" with anti-aliased edges. That's a Photoshop job. Sure, you CAN do it Illustrator, but you're going to have problems printing that, and even if you do, your printer will hate you for crashing his platesetter. If it's screen resolution, well, then he's doubly right. Illustrator is not the proper tool for the job.

The Creativity Crisis
When my kid is old enough to help me by actually using the tools, I'm going to teach him to HELP, not just hold the flashlight.

Arent we smart enough to know that there are no absolutes?
Well mostly. I mean - besides that one.
The MPEG-LA's Lock On Culture
If you bought a car on credit (Right, I know, everybody on Slashdot only pays cash for everything) and you read the "credit agreement" you'll see that it includes such gems as not being able to take your car to Canada, not being able to work on "non-user-servicable" parts (which is basically everything not in the "Users Manual" that tells you to take it a dealer to have the oil changed.) and that some of these terms extend for the "life of the product" and "do not expire with the terms of this agreement."
If you buy a new car from a dealer (even if you pay cash, or with an external bank loan) there's a whole list of forms and licenses you have to sign - some of which are equally bizarre. (Only dealer mechanics can work on the computer.)
I'm actually pretty sure that if they had thought of it, and they though the market would bear it they'd put in some way to collect royalties for transporting passengers.

Could Colorblindness Cure Be Morally Wrong?
I am sorry that I actually believe this due to the fact that I am an immigrant and never learned the entitlement mindset.
Or reading comprehension apparently. It wouldn't matter how smart and capable you were, since you couldn't afford the necessary genetic modifications, you'd be a peasant. The sort of genetic dystopia he's describing would create a permanent genetic underclass with no hope of upward social mobility. You'd be a perpetual Delta, but without the lovely soma.
You're saying you believe in social mobility - he's telling you if Paris Hilton and all of her issue for all eternity could be guaranteed an IQ of 150, that such a thing simply would not exist.
Health Care Reform
$250,000 yearly income is NOT middle class or upper middle class. That's upper 1%. Being richer than 99% of the people around you is the definition of being rich

Throttle Shared Users With OS X — Is It Possible?
Use Version Cue. You already have it. It comes with creative suite.
If you don't have a server, and don't have the money for one, you can install it on the individual work stations, and it "looks" like you're working off of individual Macs - but what is ACTUALLY happening is copy down, copy back, but only the different bits (at least in CS3 and above.)
It's ludicrously easy to administer, and it can hold a ton of (design) data before it starts to complain.

I think it's safe to say that I understand none of your understanding.
Drupal's Dries Buytaert On Drupal 7
As somebody who has attempted to do this, that just isn't true. Doing a data upgrade from 5 to 6 was nearly impossible, because the Drupal data model is so open ended. It mixes standard, 'attributes as columns' with EAV data structures, and extensively serializes certain types of data.
It was easier to copy and paste it. So, I suppose technically, they didn't break my data, as they didn't actively delete it out the existing database.
What SciFi Should Get the Reboot Treatment Next?
You could fix BSG with clever editing and a different title card at the end.
Rather than have them DISCARD antibiotics and advanced industry, just point out that 30,000 people aren't enough to actually sustain an industrial society. ie. "We're out of tylium, the antiobiotics are gone, we're running an energy deficite. We've got thirty years at most before we're all fighting over the scraps."
Then move the the "landing" up to about 5,000 years ago and make Hera the MRCA rather than mitochondrial eve (which they misunderstood anyway) and voila.
Then they've actually made an interesting point, since the arrival of the Colonist actually corresponds with the very beginning of "civilization" on Earth.
What SciFi Should Get the Reboot Treatment Next?
I've always wondered how you'd pull this off.
I mean, even in the books, it's obvious from the first sentence that the drunk fisherman is Felix, and the whole "hey, he's the king of the universe" thing comes off kind of hackneyed.
But it would be pretty awesome to watch the battles.
Magento Beginner's Guide
If all you want to do is theme it and go, then it's pretty awesome. It's out of the box functionality exceeds software costing $100,000.
If you need to customize anything, then be prepared to enter a dimension where pain and chaos reign, complicated doesn't even cover it, and there's almost zero good documentation.

Bing Search Tainted By Pro-Microsoft Results
Of the ten results on Google, eight are about why WINDOWS is so expensive.
Of the ten results on Bing, eight are about why MACs are so expensive.
One result on each page is why vinyl windows are so expensive.
I seem to recall that searching for anything related to a Google product will return Google's product at or near the top.
That couldn't be because you searched for a Google product could it? If you do a search for "gmail sucks" the results are comparable, though.
