Was Eich a Threat To Mozilla's $1B Google "Trust Fund"?

dugancent Re:And yet they supported Obama (564 comments)

Which is exactly what he should be doing. He represents the will of the people and if they want it, and he doesn't, he should support them not himself.

Was Eich a Threat To Mozilla's $1B Google "Trust Fund"?

dugancent Re:And yet they supported Obama (564 comments)

Obama changed his mind, did Eich?

Either way is has no bearing on this issue as it's a company that can do as they wish. If Google wanted to cut them off for it, it's their right. Mozilla would collapse without google.

Transhumanist Children's Book Argues, "Death Is Wrong"

dugancent Re:Irresponsible or what? (334 comments)

Every single time, somebody has to bring out this old tired argument.

Again, there a simpler solution, less reproduction. There is no need to cull the living.

3D Maps Reveal a Lead-Laced Ocean

dugancent Re:Romans (266 comments)

The only common and modern lead items I that I can think of are fishing sinkers, car batteries and tire balancing weights. I've seen electronic devices with lead to give weight.

Interview: Ask Richard Stallman What You Will

dugancent Re:Denommus (480 comments)

I don't care if he is the founder of modern civilization. His holier-than-thou, my wayor the highway attitude leaves with me with a bad taste. I have little respect for the man.

Who's On WhatsApp, and Why?

dugancent Re:Why NOT WhatsApp (280 comments)

You don't have to re-verify every time you swap your sim. Only if you change devices. Your number doesn't have to match that of your sim.

Price of Amazon Prime May Jump To $119 a Year

dugancent Re:Why Prime? (298 comments)

Better than Netflix? I have both and I think Prime video is TERRIBLE. Everything I want to watch is a rental, which I don't need prime for.

dugancent Re:Oh, Frack (115 comments)

Midwestern Fault Zones Are Still Alive

dugancent Re:Oh, Frack (115 comments)

I lived in Indiana in 2008 when the 5.4 earthquake happened. It was in the wabash seismic area and there was no fraking going on at the time.

Same with the Virginia earthquake. Again, no fraking was happening any where near a fault.

No. Everything is a right, until you are told, or a law is made, against something.
