top Slackware Linux 14.1 Released
I would just like to take the time to point out that we have a 3-digit User ID here... So by default he knows what he is talking about.
He remembers the 23 disk A-series of slackware.

You can only collapse one set of zeros, for precisely that reason. I don't remember if it is in the spec that it has to be the first set or not, as either way is unambiguous.

top The Cost of US Security
Social security is also dependent on the taxpayers paying back all of the IOUs that have been written when government took money from the funds to pay for other projects. But that is often neglected when the government wants to funnel more of your money into large corporations. The government, the banks, and wall street all know that in order for the bubble to continue long enough to get rich, they have to keep feeding the monster. Social security is not the pyramid scheme here, the US version of capitalism is the pyramid scheme.

top Can You Trust Chinese Computer Equipment?
"If I understand what communism is, the businesses are actually run and controlled by the government."
No, that's socialism. Communism is where people are all equal in the fact that they all use their specialties and innate talents to contribute to the greater good. In a true communist society, there is no government. There may be people who speak for the group, but it is supposed to be speaking the general consensus.
Of course, as a realist you can see the issue with that, can't you?
What we currently call communist regimes are actually socialist, bordering on fascist. I don't think that the world has seen anything resembling the ideal of communism outside of the hippie communes that dotted the landscape in the 70's, or an abby or something of the sort.

top Sneaky Microsoft Add-On Put Firefox Users At Risk
What functionality I don't want is having to upgrade messenger, and finding that it switched a bunch of crap in my browser, like searching from the address bar, and having to go through the chrome settings to fix it.
I thought that I read the disclaimers, but apparently not well enough. But I'm sure that it never said "Replace the default search in Firefox with Bing!"
I know that it wasn't Ballmer stating to do this, but some marketing drone talked to some codemonkey about getting Bing out there, and the end result was that I had to remove what is essentially crap adware and corporate shenanigans from my browser.
