Fedor is an unstoppable killing machine I guess the Russians figure Fedora must be an unstoppable OS. What's next? A USA national operating system named Chuck Norris?

Do Nice Engineers Finish Last In Tough Times?

jerryodom The other guy made a case for his job (613 comments)

I don't agree with people screaming at their employees, taking credit shamelessly and kissing so much ass like the antagonist of todays story did however the not-nice guy did make a case for his job to the management. He feared losing his job and presented a case for himself to upper management.

In my experience if you don't make any noise(good or bad) then nobody knows you're there. I don't think this situation sounds like it had to do with being a nice guy as much as it did being a quiet guy.

"Smash Your Hard Drive" To Fight Identity Theft

jerryodom Companies I worked at had me do this (527 comments)

On more than one occasion when removing old computers we pulled the drives and destroyed them while donating the old PC's. If you think about it then it's really a no brainer. What's the first thing you do when you get a machine that's come out of no place and been previously used? You snoop around for things.

How to Deal With an Aging Brain?

jerryodom Drink More (684 comments)

My personal approach is to drink more tequila shots and beer. I always remember more and drive better on a ton of booze.

jerryodom jerryodom writes  |  more than 8 years ago Story on Slashdot is that Google is partnering with NASA. They're just taking over aren't they? Google Poker, that'd be a new one. Put the poker sites out of business by sending all their own poker traffic to themselves.

The World Revolves Around Google

jerryodom jerryodom writes  |  more than 8 years ago At least my world does anyway. I attend a few search and technology conferences and the big spin always seems to be around Google. They are the biggest star of the IT world and that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon. Two Goliaths in Microsoft and Yahoo ride their coat tails the whole way but nobody is stepping up to dethrone them. Nobody does anything that Google hasn't done first and if they do, well Google just comes along and does it better. Every bit of technology I come up with in my work revolves around what Google likes and what Google may not like. We don't want to piss off Google do we!? Honestly I've become a bit sick of it and recently CNet has become Google's proverbial bitch due to some story they wrote that might have splashed a little something on Google's shiny reputation. This little altercation brought up some feelings that I don't really like. I've always loved Google and appreciated what they've contributed to the web but I worry that they're becoming a little to big and allowed too much free reign. Really had it been Microsoft hushing the media we'd be pulling out the pitchforks and torches. I hope I'm just getting a wrong feeling and I hope they continue to push the bar on making the web a better place. I suppose only time will tell and I guess the whole point of this rant is that Google is great, but are they becoming too Good? Power corrupts and the ability to hush the media is something to be leary of.
