Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

cyber-vandal Re: Slashdot stance on #gamergate (685 comments)

The preponderance of the evidence is that life is more complex than the new left would have it. Reducing it to the Oppression Olympics contributes nothing and just annoys the people you want on your side. I wonder what Dr Matt Taylor for example thinks of you idiots as you ruined his greatest moment over fuck all. Was his privilege checked as you nobodies reduced him to tears.

The greatest income inequality in the developed world can be found in probably the least statist country, the US.

In Addition To Project Spartan, Windows 10 Will Include Internet Explorer

cyber-vandal Re: Internet Explorer (99 comments)

RDP is better than VNC though. Hyper V still isn't as good as VMWare though. Can't copy and paste text or drag and drop files from the host to the guest WTF? Even Dropbox can do that now.

That's exactly what your argument is. There are successful white men therefore white men have it easy.

Rich white male privilege exists. Homeless white male privilege doesn't. Addict white male privilege doesn't. Mentally ill white male privilege doesn't. White male abused by authority figure of either gender privilege doesn't. Divorced white male wanting custody of his kids privilege doesn't. How many white men with obviously shit lives does it take for the new left to realise that life is a damn sight more complex than white man bad everyone else good.

Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

Males are not considered to be virtuous at all irrespective of colour. Try being anywhere near children as a man and see how 'virtuous' the man is considered to be. Men get shit for all the problems of society (even though we suffer from them too) and none of the credit for all the benefits. As to the pay gap, given that it's illegal to pay women less for the same job, can you give me some examples.

White male privilege might exist for Harvard graduates but for ordinary men they can have their home and children taken away from them on the event of a divorce, can be forced to fight in wars, are more likely to go to prison and the prisons are far more dangerous, are just as likely to be assaulted by their partner but are more likely to be arrested of they report it and are widely portrayed by the media as witless buffoons.

What privileged position does an ordinary white male occupy? There are plenty of poor white men and plenty of rich privileged white women. Not every white man is Donald Trump or Rupert Murdoch.

Corporate intranets made in Visual Studio work fine in other browsers and have done for a long time. This isn't 2003.

cyber-vandal Re: Slashdot stance on #gamergate (685 comments)

Every time I pass a white male homeless person (by far the majority of homeless people in my city) I tell him to check his privilege and they are most grateful for my concern about social justice and the oppression of rich white women.

Could Tizen Be the Next Android?

cyber-vandal Re: Where's the Linux phones? (241 comments)

Not really. It's not as terse as C but COBOL is in a class of its own with all the verbal diarrhoea.

Could Tizen Be the Next Android?

cyber-vandal Re:Where's the Linux phones? (241 comments)

Java, the COBOL of the 1990s

So wildly successful and used for shifting trillions of dollars around? Java has very little in common with COBOL, except features that all languages have in common. What should they have used instead of Java? The memory leak brothers C and C++? Javascript? LISP? FORTRAN?

The reason why phone apps are popular is because they're a lot easier to use and a lot more functional than web apps. How do you query your device's hardware from a browser? How do you turn the flash on and off? How do you receive notifications? How do you interface with OS functionality? Given that every phone comes with a browser how are you isolated from the web? Phone apps fill a need that web apps will never be able to because you can't give a browser full access to your device.

Windows 10: Can Microsoft Get It Right This Time?

Thanks that's very useful to know. This doesn't work for searching for text using a UNC though unfortunately.

Windows 10: Can Microsoft Get It Right This Time?

cyber-vandal Re: There's nothing wrong now... (489 comments)

I know. I use Agent Ransack now because I cannot figure out how to get Windows to do a text search that can find text I know is there. It doesn't do what it says it does. I understand there's some kind of arcane syntax but I've never been able to get that to work. Grep on Unix is far more user friendly.
