More space to run political ads. Just imagine Sarah Palin hovering above your head with unlimited campaign contributions in terms of advertising dollars going towards buying a zillion floating billboards. Remember people, do not panic. You can hurl, just don't panic.

Windows Patch Leaves Many XP Users With Blue Screens

handfullofsausage Re:ha ha suckers!!! (658 comments)

Ubuntu by far is the easiest to use as Linux Distros go. I use many different versions of Linux and would recommend Ubuntu to anyone looking for a new OS that's very stable and easy to use. I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on a Lenovo, replacing Windows 7. The battery life is 5 to 5 1/2 hours with Ubuntu, compared to 3 hours using Windows. Also, the stock Windows install utilized about 60+ gigs, I have Ubuntu loaded with alot of options and am only using 6.5 gigs. Why anyone still uses windows baffles me. I am a certified MCSD, and at one time a fan boy of MS. I have totally gone to the other side, Linux. If you are still using MS Windows you really deserve what you get. The only good product MS has is MSSQL200x, and that's just another fork of SYBASE, but with some mods from MS.

Universal, Pay Those EFFing Lawyers

handfullofsausage Screw Universal (335 comments)

EFF should be asking for $5,000,000. Screw Universal!!! If their lawyers are that incompetent, they deserve to be bled. If we all believe in that little fantasy of how "the market takes care of itself" then Universal would then penalize it's own lawyers for their screw ups. But we know that ain't going to happen to any lawyer so screw em and bleed em!

France Tells Its Citizens To Abandon IE, Others Disagree

handfullofsausage More Greasy - Less Filing (406 comments)

Microsoft still insists IE8 is the 'most secure browser on the market' and you will barley notice any difference once they do release a patch. You see you can hardly tell it's IE all covered in kay-why... Remember, when it comes to security, if the door is locked try opening a Window!!! Yeah and I believe in the Easter Bunny!

Hum, Let me see if I can understand this ...So we can stop Sugar coming from Latin America but not Meth and other illicit narcotics? Go figure? The Latin American Sugar Lobby must have less money than the Cartel Lobby.
