TooLazyToLogon Must Be (212 comments)

I have received five spam email in the last five years. I don't run any spam filters, so I am assuming that it has been the ISPs and/or my email providers that have been filtering.

Patriot Act Extension By Autopen Raises Questions for Congressman

TooLazyToLogon Why Couldn't The Vice President Sign (247 comments)

During Jerry Brown's first term as California's governor, his lieutenant governor, Mike Curb, would sign bills in his absence. Most memorable was the fact that the republican lieutenant governor would sign bills that the democratic governor would have never signed.

Ubuntu Unity: The Great Divider

TooLazyToLogon The most annoying thing (729 comments)

The most annoying thing about Ubuntu is how they are making it harder and harder to customize it to how we like it. Things like the non-intuitive, over complicated grub2 with it's limited options, and the limited customablity of the new gdm . It appears that Canonical wants to control user experience like Jobs.

Oracle Asks OpenOffice Community Members To Leave

TooLazyToLogon Open Source Office Suite (589 comments)

Senate Votes To Turn Down Volume On TV Commercials

TooLazyToLogon Volume Limiter (625 comments)

Just run your TV sound out through a volume limiter. Turn the TV volume up to a higher level that you are comfortable with during regular programing, Then turn the volume limiter to a comfortable level. Commercials won't be able to go above that volume.

Oracle Launches 'Private Cloud' Box

TooLazyToLogon Like a PogoPlug with a hard drive (82 comments)

This sounds like a plug device with a built in hard drive. The data is stored on your storage media and only the address of the device is out there in the cloud. No one has access to the data unless the know the address.

Canonical Bringing an Instant-On Ubuntu

TooLazyToLogon moving panels (251 comments)

The first thing I do in this wide screen world is move both panels to the left of my screen. Then I get rid of as many toolbars as I can, usually leaving only the file menu and maybe a navigation toolbar.

I'm not a fan of scrolling. I'd rather view it a screen at a time, like flipping a page of a book, by hitting the PgDn key.

Ubuntu's trend seems to be limiting the users ability to modify ubuntu to our preferences. In 10.04 they have remove the tools to modify the login. They kept the tools for managing Palm Pilots, but eliminated the kernel modules that allow any connection.

Microsoft VP Suggests 'Net Tax To Clean Computers

TooLazyToLogon Re:Free anti-virus with Internet service purchase! (577 comments)

I agree. Anti-Virus Programs are not needed and slows down computers.
I had a Win2K SP4 machine, that I used as an answering manchine, online 24 hours a day for five years. I used the precautions listed in Lendrick's post, with the addition of putting a router with a firewall between the computer and the cable modem. Although I don't use it for an answering machine now, I still use it regularly. It still is a clean machine.

Of course most of my online computing is done on linux machines, where I don't have to be near as careful.

In the 1930s Hitler actually sued a US senator (Alan Cranston) for copyright infringement, for distributing copies of "Mein Kampf" he had printed, to warn the US about Hitler's intentions. Hitler won that one.

TooLazyToLogon Re:Opening will only degrade (532 comments)

The BIOS was proprietary before their switch to the x89 chip. That is how they shut down competing hardware manufacturers.

Ballmer Pleads For Openness To Compete With Apple

TooLazyToLogon Opening will only degrade (532 comments)

Apple's strict control is what makes so user friendly. Forcing developers to work with in strict guide lines keeps the quality of the software up there, but limits the amount of software available. Apple's control extends to the hardware. Even their BIOS is proprietary. By controlling the hardware everything works. Microsoft can only dream of having this kind of control over their product. Opening Apple's products will only degrade them.

The Case for Lunar Property Rights

TooLazyToLogon As Representive of the Lunar Empire (387 comments)

I would like to say we already own the Moon. If you Earthlings think you can push us Lunatics around like the Europeans did to the Earth's Western Hemisphere you are crazy. We are currently calculating the cost of cleaning up the space junk Earthlings have left on our Moon and will be sending out a bill shortly.
