Debian Forked Over Systemd

ruir Re:A joke? (332 comments)

Nowadays you do not need to compile the kernel, you just need to learn how to deal with kernel modules. It is a rookie mistake to compile the kernel just for the sake of making hardware working, one that I did 15 years ago. As for peace of mind, I am not young anymore, and administering at work a hundred servers is already enough, Mac and iPhone as personal gadgets do very well the trick and I see them as an investment.

Debian Forked Over Systemd

ruir Re:A joke? (332 comments)

You are deluded my friend. People who are not or are into Windows is not because of the price factor, is because not knowing better or hating it. It can be fast as a rocket space, but it has never been reliable and more infected than a nigerian hooker. The fact is people are so tired about Windows that I have had people ask me to install Linux just not to have viruses. I also gave a Mac to dad in the past, this summer gave it an iPAd and he absolutely loves it. I am using OS/X and it is money well spent for peace of life. I am using linux too for about 100 servers, will see if I will go back the freeBSD route. Windows? Office? Microsoft products? never on my life. Never again.

ruir Re:Money how? (119 comments)

You are joking, but actually this move can very well be a manoeuvre to boots sales numbers to look better in paper to prospective buyers.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

ruir Re:Crazy (1088 comments)

You only are confirmating my point (and then someone mods the other point offtopic duh). The point is with some drugs they become insensitive to pain, and are thus a bigger threat on the time period you are mentioning. Then it does not matter whether the perp in question was drugged or not, the point is that police is already used to this situations and has to escalate the use of force to prevent this situations.

Debian Votes Against Mandating Non-systemd Compatibility

ruir Re:This is the same community (575 comments)

FreeBSD is running with a more knit closed technical minded people..systemd has been a political decision. Not impossible, however very unlikely. The fact of life is Debian turned exactly into the stupidity we came to it to avoid.

Slack Now Letting Employers Tap Workers' Private Chats

ruir Re:Pretty good idea if it is your computer (78 comments)

You should seriously revise your [cynic mode on] I do not even have an idea why people use Tor [off]. And in the corporate word, often you have not a say own your work station is installed of which certificates come with the default setup. Or what people is logged besides you. And besides passive surveillance, there are more nefarious activities to worry about. ( https://www.eff.org/wp/detecti... ) Packet interception, DNS interception, packet sniffing, man in the middle attacks, logging all your network activity on several ways, levels and technics, divert your traffic to where it should not go...and so on. Certifications only give you an illusion of privacy. You suffer from a simple delusion that I have witness in some coworkers, which is to not recognised, that as a single point is compromised in the infra-structured, you cannot count on your privacy ever.

Last time I noticed there are plenty of alternatives for Windows PCs. Yet the brainwashing is so entrenched articles never mention this virus *only* infect them.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

ruir Re:I just don't understand (1088 comments)

And yet again mod points used to censorship the previous comment. Someone could mod it up? Facts are facts, mod points using to silence people who you do not agree with is not correct. "Quite the opposite, the evidence is overwhelming that the cop acted correctly and shot Brown in self defence as Brown charged at him and wouldn't be stopped by the first few rounds shot at his torso, which hit his hands first as he was running to the cop. The cop was attacked, beaten, Brown tried taking his weapon away from the cop and then the cop came after Brown. Brown turned around and charged at the cop. Multiple witnesses who were scared to come forward due to overwhelming pressure by the black leadership, Obama himself no less was on TV about this (and today as well), and everybody was ready to rip the cop apart. The 7 black witnesses who actually confirmed what the cop was saying saw Brown charging at the cop, he didn't have his hands up, he didn't yell 'don't shoot', all of this 'evidence' came out of the Brown's accomplice, who was with Brown in the store they robbed together just before this incident. In fact this cop was on the way to the store to respond to the emergency call and stopped Brown correctly. He was then attacked, beaten, weapon was almost taken away from him and then he was charged at. That is what the jury in this case saw and that is why the cop will not go to trial, since there is no reason for it, it's a self defence case like many others that are obvious and there is nothing to charge the guy with."

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

ruir Re:Flip Argument (1088 comments)

"7 witnesses (black) collaborated cop's story. Brown was running at the cop, after beating him and pulling his gun, which then went off in the car. The cop did the correct thing by trying to stop the offender and as the offender charged at him, the cop fired multiple rounds, hitting Brown in the hands and torso, which didn't stop the charge and so the cop finished off the offender by firing into his head. If somebody attacked me (and I am not a cop and never will be) and tried taking my gun away and tried beating me and then charged at me from a distance, I would have shot him as well, would have emptied the entire clip and the colour is absolutely irrelevant." Please for fuck sake, do not use mod points for censorship. The parent argument should not have been modded down.

ruir Re:Pretty good idea if it is your computer (78 comments)

Nobody talked about "secure" computers. If you are not using your OWN computer and your OWN network, youd better assume it can be tampered with (and even so, lets not get started on ISPes or malware for espionage). More so when using computers at work. The computers and the network belong to your employer.

ha, and I forgot. Here it is mandatory to wait 2 years until a disposed number is given to someone else. Granted, they do not always honour that law.

Blocking numbers? Good luck. It is trivial to call as anonymous. You can opt for not answering, but it still rings.
