So Long, CmdrTaco, and Thanks For All The Posts

franksands Thanks for everything (238 comments)

I am not famous, nor have a miniscule UID, but /. was the first forum I really enjoyed participating and felt at home. Thanks for all the great work and for creating such an awesome environment for us to receive the news the matters, discuss, rant and eventually troll.

How many languages do you speak on a daily basis?

franksands Re:I know this is a silly question before I ask it (674 comments)

Let me try this again: I was not trolling, this is a quote from Inglorious Bastards, from Quentin Tarantino. Maybe The Fifth Element is all people remember who you talk about how many languages you know :(

I think there are no fans of the great Bridget von Hammersmark over here. Or they just don't know how to take a joke not so seriously.

franksands Re:Tri-Lingual (674 comments)

Do you speak them daily? I am fluent in two languages and know bits and pieces of 4 more, but only use 2 every day.

I think it's ironic for MS to complain about "malvertisement" when they just confirmed to do it themselves at Best Buy stores.

franksands (938435) writes "Engadgenet has a story that the mp3 players given by McDonald's in Japan during a promotion were infected with a trojan horse used to steal user information from the QQ instant message program, very popular in Asia. From the article:
What do tubby teens, MP3 players, and grandma's scalded taint all have in common? That's right, the absolute attention of McDonald's legal. See, McDonald's and Coca-Cola recently teamed up in Japan to give away 10,000 self-branded MP3 players pre-loaded with 10 spankin' new tunes and... some delicious malware.
