Windows 10 To Feature Native Support For MKV and FLAC

bumba2014 Stupid (313 comments)

Am I stupid? Download k-lite codec pack and you have all the codecs you can imagine, which idiot is going to pay microsoft an other tax for a few codecs... I stay with windows 7, works fine... I have been having those codecs for years, for free... even under windows xp... Same is with iso file as drive DEAMON Tools lite, also for free. It's nice they have it, but not a reason to buy a new version of there shit...

Data From Windows 10 Feedback Tool Exposes Problem Areas

bumba2014 Re:Windows 7 (147 comments)

Mounting ISO files, I can do for years, no need for a new operating system. UI was crap. Control Center has been crap for years, and every new version, they think about something new, and leave the old stuff in it... 10 looks just like 8, but with the key logging and some addon for the start menu. I had 5 windows open in windows 8, I could tell a difference, because the wasn't any difference between the border of one and the border of an other... When moving from XP to 7, I got more stable Windows Explorer, and 64bits (XP + 64bits was very unstable). But it also fucked up the network with home group, something that most of the time doesn't work. A whole lot of other stuff went wrong with 7, so lets just keep it that way, no need to make it even worse...

Will Windows 10 Finally Address OS Decay?

bumba2014 just use the old ones... (577 comments)

We have a few web-servers, the new ones come automatically with Windows 2012 version, there are terrible, everything is put somewhere else. And a lot of stuff doesn't work, because of some new security measurements... It's no fun working with them...

Apple's Diversity Numbers: 70% Male, 55% White

bumba2014 rasisme (561 comments)

I like to know how many white vs non white in a certain region live. If 80% is white and 20% is black, than don't expect 50% white vs 50% black in a company. That's stupid. Same goes for man vs woman, how many man do programming, and have studied programming or such, vs how many woman program and have studied programming. You can't make it 50% in a company. That's no equality, that only will course white people hate other people... If I had a large company, I wouldn't care about black or white or numbers. I would look at credentials, and how he would interact with my team. Getting woman on your floor also increases the change at lawsuits for harassment. I have known a few woman who programmed in my company, I personally would have thrown them out, I liked them, they were nice, but their code quality was terrible. So If you have a pool of people to choose from you like to choose the best, if there are more white male people in that pool, the changes are you choose a white male. If a black woman would come by and would show she can program much better than most people white man in my company, I wouldn't hesitate to give her the job. But I wouldn't select her because of some number. A company needs to make money to survive, not conform to some government standard.

Microsoft To Drop Support For Older Versions of Internet Explorer

bumba2014 Don't forget #11 (138 comments)

I suggest they stop supported version 11 also, that way a lot of problems in the internet will be solved.... Making a website will become much easier, less frustration and we could get payed a little better at the hour, not having to stay awake for nights getting it working on some version of MSIE...

Programming Languages You'll Need Next Year (and Beyond)

bumba2014 I don't... (315 comments)

Who cares about a fucking language. I know more that 20 different programming languages, I don't care about one more or less. What can it do, that I can't do already ? Can I program faster, or better? Or is it just an other syntax, for some obscure system ?

Laser Eye Surgery, Revisited 10 Years Later

bumba2014 not a permanent fix (550 comments)

your eyes mostly don't change between 25 en 40, probably 50, I don't have any idea. But my eyes stayed the same from around that time until now. And I'm still happy with the operation. Less than a decade is of course too bad. Only advantage I see, is that if you had -4 or more, that you can subtract it from your new glasses. So having -1 after 5 years, would probably have been -5 without the operation. If you had -1 or -2, I don't think I would have ever done that operation...

Laser Eye Surgery, Revisited 10 Years Later

bumba2014 Advantages and Disadvantages (550 comments)

I did it like 8 years ago. And I'm still happy that I did it..... The only few disadvantages are that I was able to see very sharp at around 5 cm, now I can't anymore. My fingers need to be at least 10 cm away to see them clearly. I also don't like the bugs flying in my eyes when I'm riding my bike.... But not having to search every morning where I left my glasses, or cleaning my glasses every time it rains, or taking in and out of lenses everyday, made my life a lot more bearable.

Internet Explorer Vulnerabilities Increase 100%

bumba2014 Re:Surprise! (137 comments)

I also do not understand, those people still using MSIE, they even send me articles which say that MSIE is more secure as Firefox or Chrome... Well I never have had an trojaner or virus from using Firefox/Mozilla the last +10 years. Have had a lot of problems until I stopped using that big piece of shit/crap MSIE. But of course like Einstein said two things are infinite, the cosmos and human stupidity. And he wasn't sure about the cosmos....
