Really i'd rather let the site go down to ddos than blocking and i think most would agree.

AT&T Blocks Part of 4chan

Venim Re:Looks like the block was lifted (342 comments)

Sounds like they backed out pretty quickly. Probably the best move they could make (aside from not blocking 4chan in the first place).

As for the DDoS claim by them, i say FUD. /b/ was just as slow as it always is.

FBI Seizes All Servers In Dallas Data Center

Venim Legality (629 comments)

I seriously doubt that the FBI can legally do this. Warrants are not suppost to be as broad as this. something is most definitely wrong here.

Ballmer Scorns Apple As a $500 Logo

Venim Whats the problem (1147 comments)

i dont see whats wrong with what ballmer is saying. im not a huge fan of him or windows by any means but an apple is an x86 computer in a fancy case with an overpriced operating system. sure its better than windows but not so much to be paying such a steep price for it.

the extra cost just makes less people afford it and the ones who do end up being smug like hybrid owners in southpark, or on slashdot..

Microsoft Update Slips In a Firefox Extension

Venim Re:Allowed scope of updates (803 comments)

b) Other apps are hosted in repositories. Some by the program writer, some by other people. But Apt/synamptic manages all the repositories in one place for you! And you can turn them on and off at will. What a concept!! This is what people have been requesting from Microsoft update for the better part of a decade.

installing some addon to a 3rd party program for microsoft to try and increase its market share through some .NET BS is not what people have been requesting at all.
