Safety Review Finds Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Site Was Technically Sound

thaylin Re:Majority leaders home district (160 comments)

Promises of relative safety. That is the problem, people think when people say that there is relative safety that there is absolute safety.

You want a lot of dead presidents dont you? The president has all that security because without it there is a god chance someone would kill him, regardless of who the president is.

DEA Cameras Tracking Hundreds of Millions of Car Journeys Across the US

thaylin Re: Welcome to the police state (152 comments)

Depends on what you are talking about. The OP implied he was responsible for the initialization of it, not its continued use. Of course, now that we know he knows, he is responsible for changing it, or allowing it to keep running.

thaylin Re:Welcome to the police state (152 comments)

Fallacies. Your entire argument is based on the faulty assumption that just because you are president you magically know about absolutely every single initiative put in place by absolutely every agency under your purview.

Any excuse is given to erode civil liberties. If it wasn't drugs, it would have been something else.

Systemd's Lennart Poettering: 'We Do Listen To Users'

thaylin Re:Just keep it away from Gentoo and I'm good (551 comments)

Systemd does multiple things and does them poorer then what they replaced, therefore it does not do one thing,

I know very little about init, or Systemd, .

This right here goes to the very heart of your problem.

Then this little gem

It is smarter, faster, and conceptually better in every conceivable way

So you know nothing about them, but you know systemd does everything better in every conceivable way. Such as binary logging that you probably not be able read if you have to boot from disk. The scope of what you understand and what you think the system needs to be able to do is limited, and therefore your capability to answer reasonably is as well.

Much of the rest of Systemd is a result of the fact that any init system will have to touch on all of these other areas of the system. Init has to handle logging

Then why did it not handle it before, assuming you mean it has to handle it as journald does now. If it worked without it before then it is not a requirement. Why does init have to handle ntpd?

Systemd's Lennart Poettering: 'We Do Listen To Users'

thaylin Re:The very first thing out of his mouth (551 comments)

Again with the fallacies. You present evidence that I am wrong then I can change my mind, unlike it seems you. However all you do is give half truths and attack anyone who disagrees with you.

Systemd's Lennart Poettering: 'We Do Listen To Users'

thaylin Re:Just keep it away from Gentoo and I'm good (551 comments)

So it, by design, tries to do multiple things, which is the violation in UNIX principle that most people mention. We got atleast 3 things it ties to do, just in the base installation. Several of those things have cause numerous non recoverable errors in the system.

He did no such thing, he tried to redefine what the anti-systemd people were saying and then attacked them by saying they are all old and conservative, not wanting to change.

Systemd does startup, it does logging, it does ntpd, it manages processes.. What do you think it does that is just one thing?

Systemd's Lennart Poettering: 'We Do Listen To Users'

thaylin Re:Just keep it away from Gentoo and I'm good (551 comments)

Its one tool, that does many things and does them typically poorly compared to the replacement tools. Systemd does multiple things and does them poorer then what they replaced, therefore it does not do one thing, let alone well. He is trying to redefine systemd away from being the tool and just being a repository, which utterly fails due to some components requiring others in systemd.

thaylin Re:Just keep it away from Gentoo and I'm good (551 comments)

Pretty much every person who makes the claim that it violates the UNIX philosophy state that it is because of do one thing do it well. It looks monolithic because it things are required, things that dont even have to be used is still required to be installed and running on the system. Sure I can change journald so it does not write to files and use syslog, but journald still has to be there and running.

So you like having useless software always running on your machines, that you cannot get rid of, or absolutely turn off? It also still violates do one thing and do it well because it tries to do many things, and seems to do them poorly.

You can use syslog but you cannot get rid of journald, it has to be there running, increasing overhead. This is not, and has never been about learning something knew, that is nothing more than a fallacy created by the pro systemd movement to attack the people who dislike it.
