Windows 8.1 Rolls Out Today

TheyTookOurJobs Re:You'll pry Windows 95 from my cold dead hands! (398 comments)

EVERY business is laughing at MS. 8 on a workstation is a joke. Tiles, YAY! Server 2012 shoving metro down my throat too? Yea, not happening. In fact, just FU.

The Ineffectiveness of TSA Body Scanners

TheyTookOurJobs At least I can count on a hot day.. (494 comments)

Being sweaty standing in the intentionally long line at the Airport(because they only open 1 or 2 xray lines when they have 8 and its Monday morning), I can always count on an additional pat-down because of some sweat on my back or in my hair. But if I carry a knife clipped in my pants I don't even get looked at funny. Now I know why...

Last Day To Tell Google To Forget You

TheyTookOurJobs Odd that I did this already today (238 comments)

It's kind of weird that I did this this morning just because I didn't want my wife coming onto my PC and seeing all of the porn searches by hitting a letter on google search.

Root your phone and load a custom rom, that will take care of a few problems. CIQ, Bloatware, and you can freely tether your internet.

Final Fantasy XIV Subscriptions Returning, PS3 Version In 2012

TheyTookOurJobs Re:Let it die... (96 comments)

That is pretty much the plan. Old game will be imported into new game when 2.0 is done. The only reason is they don't want to change the name. They SAY, they need the subs to pay the devs for the 'new' version. I say screw that, the CC I signed up with is expired, they won't be billing me. The issue I have is if you stopped playing, even with it being free, they will begin autobilling if you didn't cancel your 'free' game.

Square Enix Admits Final Fantasy XIV Damaged Brand

TheyTookOurJobs Re:Really? (234 comments)

I'll bend on XI, it was great. Now it's just a mess but that is just because of how much they have added over the last 2-3 years. XIV on the other hand, we were screaming in the beta that it was shit but SE was dead set on ignoring the populace. Now it is listening TOO MUCH.

AMD Accidentally Leaks 1.7 Million DiRT 3 Keys

TheyTookOurJobs Re:Home run (187 comments)

If I could +1 this I would. I fear for my life when I do anything with steam and adding games. Now I only buy FROM them, which I am sure is their strategy anyway.

TSA Groper Files Suit Against Blogger

TheyTookOurJobs Re:Having been 'searched' recently... (699 comments)

I have seen more than my share of people get fingered as it were, but never myself. It's weird to me because I travel with over 3oz of liquids and a bag full of wires and a few spare batteries. But ya see, I'm a fat guy so I never get "VIP" treatment. Who want's to pay with my balls? Nobody I says.

Macs More Vulnerable Than Windows For Enterprise

TheyTookOurJobs Re:A virus? In my MAC? (281 comments)

Now now, stux was extremely specific and with purpose. Most douchenozzles write virii for kicks. This is all from statistics I made up for the purpose of this post. Please ignore me, nothing to see here.

Macs More Vulnerable Than Windows For Enterprise

TheyTookOurJobs A virus? In my MAC? (281 comments)

It's more likely than you think! Why would someone write a virus that is targeted at 10% of the user base when they can target 90?

Samsung Wants To See iPhone 5 and iPad 3

TheyTookOurJobs Relax, I be a doctor (136 comments)

While I completely believe Apple is paranoid enough to believe that everyone is stealing their generic unappealing design, it's frightening that a judge can tell Samsung to pull down it's pants and cough.

IT Graduates Not "Well-Trained, Ready-To-Go"

TheyTookOurJobs No degree, no debt, great career. I am happy. (609 comments)

I started in a lowly tech support job, now I'm a 6 figure IT professional at 35 designing and installing petabyte level DoD storage systems. Thank you employers who valued drive, certifications, and experience over a useless CompSci degree. My wife has a masters in an art field, 100k in student loans, and can't get a job that pays more than 35k a year. At least she keeps me fat and happy!
