Latest Wikipedia Uproar Over 'Superprotection'

slashmydots say it again (107 comments)

It's almost like the idea of letting everyone edit something actually does in fact turn into a crooked, biased shitstorm and wikipedia was wrong and everyone else in the world was right.

Microsoft Lobby Denies the State of Chile Access To Free Software

slashmydots I have an idea (107 comments)

Instead of lobbying, lower your damn prices. At my US company we're sure as hell not paying $450 a seat for the corporate single license version with Access and Publisher. It's not my damn vault they lost billions on Windows 8 and the Xbone and need to make it elsewhere.

Dramatic Shifts In Manufacturing Costs Are Driving Companies To US, Mexico

slashmydots missing the point completely (206 comments)

Oh, they just found out it's more expensive? Good for them, except they should have figured out that waiting 4 weeks for your product to be replaced if you sell it all when it would be 3 days in the US loses you tons of money regardless of worker wages. You just cannot have your business rely on another business thousands of miles away. Don't even get me started on the level of fraud and quality issues. Chinese manufacturing costs A TON once you look past the surface. Everything should still be made in the US!

Ask Slashdot: What Do You Wish You'd Known Starting Out As a Programmer?

slashmydots This one is simple (445 comments)

I'm one of the most naturally talented programmers I've ever met. My code is extremely good. I won many competitions. I scored near perfectly on knowledge and practical exams with an IT staffing company and beat almost all their other employes. AND YET nobody will hire someone with two 2 year degrees. That would have been nice to know. I got a job as CIO of a medium sized company at 24 years old so it worked out but I would have had more options ignoring programming and just getting more server management, networking, and support training.

China Pulls Plug On Genetically Modified Rice and Corn

slashmydots Re:Wow (143 comments)

Isn't it obvious? The new GMO plants couldn't withstand the pollution in the air so it's not an effective use of research money.

New HP Laptop Would Mean Windows at Chromebook Prices

slashmydots stupid! (214 comments)

HP makes the dead last lowest quality laptops. There is no other brand, including Acer, that beats them at failure rates and defect rates. Their support is nearly the lowest rated in the industry. So now they're going to make a "cheap" laptop? OH HELL NO!

Ask Slashdot: Would You Pay For Websites Without Trolls?

slashmydots trolls are a myth (381 comments)

Let me state the current definition of a troll: someone who disagrees with you. There is NOBODY out there posting stupid comments on purpose to cause arguments and screw with people. I've certainly never seen it.

Ebola Quarantine Center In Liberia Looted

slashmydots there goes that (358 comments)

Africa's amazing level of civility is going to screw this up for everyone. I would immediately send UN armed troops there to guard it 24/7 and stop all flights and trains and buses out of Liberia as a precaution and punishment.

Windows 8.1 Update Crippling PCs With BSOD, Microsoft Suggests You Roll Back

slashmydots a case of the Mondays (301 comments)

One of the Window 7/8 glitches basically went like this. I changed the kernel mode drivers and now I'm going to reboot. Hey, it looks like a glorified temp file called fntcache.dat that's a cache for font-related stuff is corrupt. Should I keep loading the OS? OH HELL NO! Fuck everything! I quit! *blue screens*
Mega case of the Mondays. Seriously, who coded it to crash the entire OS if a font cache seems to be a bit off instead of regenerating or renaming it?
