Roll them on sleds on rollers greased with pig fat. It's been tested and the pig fat lubricates really well.

Ask Slashdot: Should You Invest In Documentation, Or UX?

azav Docs please, docs. (199 comments)

It's always there and easy to find, people know how to read the docs, you get more bang for the buck with docs that actually TELL the reader what they need to do.

Start by removing Jony Ive's ability to dictate ANY UI design on iOS or the Mac OS. He's good at Industrial Design, but HORRIBLE with User Interface design.

DEA Paid Amtrak Employee To Pilfer Passenger Lists

Trannies are fucking repulsive. The very definition of loathsome, repulsive, abhorrent, repugnant. It's simply hideous that someone would want to do this. I'll gladly hate all of them.

Ignorant? Really?

Bigoted against tranny prostitites? On government transportation that the public rides on? HELL, yes. Publicly visited transport should be free of this filth. You're a complete fucktard for thinking this is not completely fucking disgusting and actually supporting it's actions. Just because some assclown wants to pretend it's a woman, that certainly means that it isn't. Get that seedy shit off of national transportation that people have to pay to be on. Clown.

DEA Paid Amtrak Employee To Pilfer Passenger Lists

azav Amtrack should be working on (127 comments)

Arresting tranny prostitutes on their trains. I was pretty shocked when I took a train across country and there was a man dressed as a woman who was always around the bathroom whenever I happened to walk by. Didn't take long to figure out that this was a tranny prostitute and when I mentioned it to the staff, they appeared to know about it. Fucking disgusting to have a working prostitute travelling along the train lines and even more disgusting to have it being a tranny pretending to be a woman. So damn repulsive.

Red tide blooms are an over reproduction of a type of phytoplankton. This is a world wide phenomenon and though there are many ideas why this happens, we don't have conclusive indicators why yet.

'Unparticles' May Hold the Key To Superconductivity

azav Are they (48 comments)

Are they "massive" particles, or simply "particles with mass"? Massive implies too many things, such as "huge", as opposed to merely "with mass".

That's pretty crashy software. At least it builds. You'd think they would distribute something a little more solid.

Sarah Palin, Candidate, Spammer?

azav azav writes  |  more than 5 years ago

azav (469988) writes "From a recent NYT report (login required): Yet recent controversy has marred Ms. Palin's reform credentials. In addition to the trooper investigation, lawmakers in April accused her of improperly culling thousands of e-mail addresses from a state database for a mass mailing to rally support for a policy initiative. While Ms. Palin took office promising a more open government, her administration has battled to keep information secret. Her inner circle discussed the benefit of using private e-mail addresses. An assistant told her it appeared that such e-mail messages sent to a private address on a "personal device" like a BlackBerry "would be confidential and not subject to subpoena." Ms. Palin and aides use their private e-mail addresses for state business. A campaign spokesman said the governor copied e-mail messages to her state account "when there was significant state business.""

azav (469988) writes "This morning I woke up after falling asleep to Braveheart on a newly purchased DVD to my Mac's fan spinning at full blast and the spinning watch cursor. I noticed that my background screen had changed from the standard mac blue to one featuring "you can run but you can't hide" with notices from the MPA (not MPAA) and the GVM (German federation against copyright theft). Additionally, my entire music directory was deleted containing DJ sets, copies of my personal CDs, recordings from myself, other DJs and friends, and favorite online shows and sets. My documents folder, downloads and favorites were also placed into the trash, probably to be emptied, before my mac spun with the spinning technicolor wheel of death. Also, two empty folders appeared on my desktop stating "is your bad activity", "the police come" and a file called "illegal_download.jpg". Nice to have your violations documented with empty folders while having your archives deleted. Sweet. Now, I run MAMP on this machine to preview videos to my clients so there is a web server on it but in a completely other directory. The "illegal_download.jpg" document stated that my "website had been closed on the behalf of the GVM and the MPAA". This is great since my website is for clients only and is in a completely different location than the material that was deleted. Of course, I find this rather confusing and it seems like there is either a hack, a tresspass OR Braveheart or Under the Tuscan Sun has spyware on it. Has anyone else seen or experienced anything like this? Merry merry."
