Linux Foundation, Linux.com Sites Down To Fix Security Breach

br4nd0nh3at Re:What a CROCK OF CRAP (you're off)... (101 comments)

I'm new to Linux, and have become quite worried with Linux security.

Looking at your post, I went to the links you provided.

Scrolling down reveals this:
"PLEASE NOTE: The statistics provided should NOT be used to compare the overall security of products against one another. It is IMPORTANT to understand what the below comments mean when using the statistics, especially when using the statistics to compare the vulnerability aspects of different products."

If you continue reading it goes goes into further detail.

Then I look at these pages

This supports your comment.

Can you explain this?

I use Chromium's built-in javascript blocker.
It also has a

Why Does the US Cling To Imperial Measurements?

br4nd0nh3at Re:Don't know why - but I like it (2288 comments)

This topic should be burned with fire.

As a side note; your explanation of the metric equivalent just means that it is simpler, not more natural.

I believe people think that the imperial system is more natural because you can use yourself as the tool. For example a foot, I can estimate them by using my foot (give or take an inch) [or you can say it's 12 inches]. An inch is about the length from my fingertips to the joint closest to it.

{Where they originated from is up in the air, but you can use those right now at your desk}

An Open Letter To PC Makers: Ditch Bloatware, Now!

br4nd0nh3at Dell? (609 comments)

I've setup a lot of Dell PCs, and there isn't that much bloatware on them. Moreover not that many programs starting up upon logon. Usually you have to disable the Dell dock that's it.

HP on the other hand...

I disagree with that mainly because, for a woman with her looks I'd say all three are on average perfectly viable.

Console Makers Worry Over Growing Competition From Apple

br4nd0nh3at Imagine this (281 comments)

And check this out; with Windows Mobile 7 coming out with phones with a 1 Ghz processor (and snapdragon or tegra whatever it's called) I'm sure gaming on phones will get even better. I think Apple will definitely start focusing "hardcore" on an Apple Game Store.

br4nd0nh3at Talk to a real pilot (911 comments)

I must agree with the original post. Though it does sound a tad Pro-American. (what's the harm in that?) It's funny because I was talking to a 767 pilot Sunday about this and he said the same thing about the Airbus.
