Oh great wise one! (#1148), can you please point me to the source of your wisdom (seriously I'd love to see for myself but I can't find anything on this in Canada).

CBC Warns Canadians of "US Law Enforcement Money Extortion Program"

Zeromous Re:In other words....Don't look like a drug traffi (462 comments)

No pretty sure police can't and don't do this in Canada. They actually have to arrest you and the money is evidence if purported to be proceeds of crime.

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Zeromous Re:Recent? (1134 comments)

I think the main thing here is that it's about who Zoe purports to be vs. who she actually is. I think that we have seen multiple examples of men recently experiencing similar issues: Julian Assange, That guy from mozilla etc. The clippers owner, I'm sure if I tried I could name many more.

I'm personally angered by your wife's story, having been a gamer from the 80s myself, but as a man didn't have to suffer such blatent harassment (although not completely with out). I'll never forget the look on her face first time my roommate's gf put on the Xbox Live headset when that tech hit. But this has nothing to do with mysoginistic gamers going after Zoe- it has everything to do with lack of personal responsibility, manipulation and pathological lying and the distrust and chaos that it precedes. People have been hurt by her real life 'game' and they are lashing out.

That said, docker is particularly useful [Metal] [VM] [LXC[LXC]-LXC-LXC .. ] sort of stack. I don't really see much reason to run docker on baremetal unless itself is physically and/or securely isolated from other machines.

Ask Slashdot: Linux-Friendly Desktop x86 Motherboard Manufacturers?

Zeromous Re:Not sure why Asus is out (294 comments)

Yeah clickbait false premise. Asus has and always has been good with Linux. I have only ever had problems with particular older distros lacking necessary drivers which is purely on me for trying to install old software on new hardware.

Did he greenlight the Anaconda UI changes in RHEL7, because that trash makes Microsoft look like UI whizzes.

How Red Hat Can Recapture Developer Interest

Zeromous Re:Docker & RedHat's Software Collections (232 comments)

Docker is indeed a godsend to developers and the admins that coddle them. Especially on distributions like RHEL and Debian. It may even allow me to skip this whole RHEL7 debacle but time will tell.
