Atheist Blogger Sentenced To 3 Years in Prison For Insulting Islam

jon_doh2.0 Re:Pink Hoofie Denial (412 comments)

"If a religious regime kills its people it is because they are religious and not because they are psychotic fucktards."

No, they are - you are completely right, and i would add delusional to the mix.

Ubuntu Community Manager: RMS's Post Seems a Bit Childish To Me

jon_doh2.0 Dodge the bullet, why don't you? (529 comments)

This retort appears quite well reasoned, but on reflection is actually a lesson in deflection. Nowhere does he address the specific issue of the Amazon data scraping. By contrast RMS does address it (it is the source of his gripe). He simply (politely) attacks RMS and accuses him of FUD, and avoids the particulars of RMS's complaint. Very slippery.

jon_doh2.0 Tommy and the man (608 comments)

My dad's story: "Back in't day, we'd just spent an evening immersed in the recently released Tommy, by The Who, and had been smoking hard. I was on my way home on my motorbike. The lights of the motorway where flashing past my vision and the sense of speed was tremendous, when i saw police lights behind me, so i pulled over. The police officer: Sir, are you aware you've been going 20mph?" badumbumtish. lol.

US Senators Concerned With Surveillance Bill "Loophole"

jon_doh2.0 The US is not then prying on the traffic of S.AM? (128 comments)

Oh no, god forbid "Americans" are subject to the same treatment as that which they mete out. The self perceived exceptionalism of the US is so jarring, created equal indeed.

Ask Slashdot: Why Aren't You Running KDE?

jon_doh2.0 Turn it all off (818 comments)

Running KDE because i like the thorough, centralised control centre, the custamisabilty, and the pretty colours. The panel is turned off and so is the desktop. Startup and background processes are almost completely culled (no need for all that indexing, etc.), and Openbox is running as the WM. Oh, and that horrendous icon theme has been nuked! In a way, you could almost say i am not really running KDE, merely taking advantage of it's advantages, and QT's libraries.

Evaluating the Harmful Effects of Closed Source Software

jon_doh2.0 Re:on the other side of the coin (490 comments)

To-right! That level of peace-of-mind you get used to, then you install something on a Windows machine and are never sure if you can fully trust the source. Not to mention all the bundled crap they try and sneak into the install, another copy of Yahoo Toolbar, anyone?

And even if the source provides you with a genuine copy of the software, who knows what it's programed to do, anyways, being closed-source.

Evaluating the Harmful Effects of Closed Source Software

jon_doh2.0 Re:How exactly do I support myself as a developer? (490 comments)

The idea is that many others can inspect the code and would cry foul, if foul there was. As apposed to those others not being able to inspect the code, on the their's and the communities behalf. Having some people, not affiliated with the software creators, able to inspect the code, makes for more security for everyone else, if it's all out in the open, it's harder to hide something. That tracks, right? If the code is closed to all but those who created it, then no non-interested parties can check it. Am i missing something? What exactly are you arguing?

jon_doh2.0 Re:on the other side of the coin (490 comments)

Now-now, boys.

No, i get it, i am recently trying a new approach of restraining myself on the Internet. One only regrets saying douchey things, appropriate thought they seem at the time.
