egr Re:Great! (215 comments)

That only works if you have billons of dollars in a bank. Otherwise it is 6 month in jail and/or fine.

.NET Native Compilation Preview Released

egr Re:So no more .net redistributable? (217 comments)

Maybe you mean C++ Redistributables? These have nothing to do with .NET, but rather C++ standard library.

Cairo 2D Graphics May Become Part of ISO C++

egr Re:But... why? (430 comments)

You can do whatever projects you like with Qt (commercial or open source alike). You need to buy a commercial license only if you want to do static linking to the library.

Convicted Spammer Jeffrey Kilbride Flees Prison

egr Re:What an idiot. (233 comments)

I've always heard that the minimum security prisons are the worst. Too much abuse since the prisoners have too much freedom to wander around and not being watched. In maximum security you are locked up most of the time and monitored.

Google's Plan To Kill the Corporate Network

egr Re:Why? (308 comments)

I do not exclude this possibility. On average probably. All this political shit about "everything equal and everyone the same" does not mean it is true. The are extraordinary people, and I know by far more extraordinary men then women.

Google's Plan To Kill the Corporate Network

egr Re:Why? (308 comments)

Wrong! Dogs are dumb, just easier to control and teach "tricks", since they are pack animals. Anyway, the cat's brain got twice the count of neurons than the dog's brain got.

Protect Your Android Phone By Killing All Its Crapware

egr Re:Overprivilaged Apps Security Risk... (201 comments)

I think the grand parent sees root as a risk 'cause it introduces additional level of complexity which could contain potential exploits. Superuser app is not bulletproof and may contain bugs. There is also a human factor. How many of us managed to dismiss a dialog box without actually reading them? I know I did not because I click everything, but because those thing may popup at most inconvenient time, when you want to click on something else.

To keep root or not to keep depends on users' needs. I just wanted to point out that it is not necessary to keep it once the job is done and it is no longer required.

Protect Your Android Phone By Killing All Its Crapware

egr Re:Hooray (201 comments)

True that, I guess I missed it because it was just one paragraph at the end. However app disabling still seems to be the main focus of the article.

egr Re:Overprivilaged Apps Security Risk... (201 comments)

It is possible to root the phone, remove the crapware and then remove the root. No need to keep it.

Protect Your Android Phone By Killing All Its Crapware

egr Hooray (201 comments)

Some guy found new button in application management settings... good for him! However the summary is misleading, it does not get the crapware off, it just disables the applications.

KDE Software Compilation 4.11 Released

egr Re:Improvements to Dolphin performance? (99 comments)

Just tried out of curiosity. Takes the same amount of time to spawn any window. If opening in an existing window it takes less then a second by far. Test was done on Fedore 19 in VM on standard 5400rpm HD. So yeah, I think the man either trolling or got some ancient piece of hardware.
