The Pirate Bay Claims It Is Now Hosting From North Korea

Adam Smith, Wealth of nations, p107, about the ones making profits: " The proposal of any new law or regulation of commerce which comes from this order, ought always to be listened to with great precaution, and ought never to be adopted till after having been long and carefully examined, not only with the most scrupulous, but with the most suspicious attention. It comes from an order of men, whose interest is never exactly the same with that of the public, who have generally an interest to deceive and even to oppress the public, and who accordingly have, upon many occasions, both deceived and oppressed it." http://www.gutenberg.org/files/38194/38194-h/38194-h.htm Why don't we listen ???

no high unemployment rates in Germany ? Could you tell me what the Belgian and French medias mean when they say "Germany has no unemployment, instead they have several thousand 1€/hour workers in the car industry". What's the trick ?

Intel Gets Go-Ahead For $4 Billion Chip Plant In Ireland

lexa1979 Re:well, good. (104 comments)

you know who "the masses" are, right ? yes, those who work hard to buy pastas and to have the right to rent their 127.0.0.1.
So, isn't it just normal they speak badly about those poor bastards who just want to have bigger profit's rate ?
Providing hundreds of jobs you say ? I see exploiting other's lifes. (I might be kind of communist here...)

US Gives $120M For Lab To Tackle Rare Earth Shortages

lexa1979 Economic formula: (170 comments)

1st: declare there's a shortage of some sort, scare people telling them there's not even enough of that resource for healthcare (but forget to mention there's plenty for money-producing-industries) -- 2nd: give some millions bucks to your friends to "look for solutions" -- 3rd: go on vacation with some of the $$ your friends give you back under the table

The Trouble With 4K TV

lexa1979 Re:Eh... (442 comments)

I get the point, but I live in Belgium, where the "private copy" law allows me to rip my rentals (and even to go to the library and copy-with my own hardware only-any books/CD/DVD I want) - as long as it is to be used in a "familly environment". So I was a bit surprised by the whole point of getting caught... The way it's done here, if you rent something, the price you pay includes 1. The rental of the pysical object 2. the fee to pay the author. Since you paid the fee to the author, you might not be allowed to keep the physical media you rented, but you paid the "licence" to the work... And there's a tax on USB/SD Card/HDD which compensates, once again, the authors since those devices are (as worded in the law) "purposedly made to copy IP works". So, we're allowed to copy. But not to distribute.

How Far Are You Traveling For the Holidays?

the character you're describing is indeed St Nicolaus, whose day is december 6th. No way he's that big fat dude called Santa Clause (Pere Noel in french - Daddy Christmas). They are two different "persons".

buy a computer in China ?

lexa1979 lexa1979 writes  |  more than 3 years ago

lexa1979 (2020026) writes "I want to sell computers in Europe. Especially notebooks or netbooks. I don't have a lot of money to put in the business for now and will have to begin with 5 or 6 computers in my stock. "They" told me to look online to buy them in Germany because it's cheaper, I checked and...errr, not *that* cheap... What about China ? do you know any sites from which I could buy online ? Found a lot of computer parts seller, but almost none sell complete system..."
