Characters have to have Flaws?

I'll stick with 2nd edition, and let all of the people that have to have flaws keep wasting cash.

Microsoft To Drop Support For Older Versions of Internet Explorer

the_Bionic_lemming Cool (138 comments)

Sounds like a great reason to not use Internet Explorer.

In the past 7 years I've only had to use it a relatively few times - For instance Illinois gubment can't be bothered to make their apps non IE friendly.

but hey, to each their own.

Windows XP Falls Below 25% Market Share, Windows 8 Drops Slightly

the_Bionic_lemming Re:Who has the market share? (336 comments)

That's a shame.

When i left Mac for windows in 1999 it was because windows had games - It wasn't hard for anyone who wanted computer games back then to make the decision - 3 aisles worth of windows games, or a shelf of mac games. I tell the mac (apple) lovers that the single biggest mistake apple did was to listen to the engineer that crapped on computer gaming.

If Open source would focus on Gaming - then the masses WILL flock over and get on board. Make a Distro that ports games automatically - make it stupidly easy to use, and the market share of Apple and Microsoft will tank.

Computer Gaming put Microsoft in the masses households. If it hadn't been for gamers, PCs would of still been a basement Nerd hobby today.

People Who Claim To Worry About Climate Change Don't Cut Energy Use

the_Bionic_lemming Re:user error (710 comments)

Buy a bunch of matches then tell me your e-mail.

Light them.

as soon as I can smell your match lighting activity, I'll email you that I caught a whiff.

Add as many friends or family you need to. Maybe add a nation or two.

Try some math. figure out how many square inches of the plant we live on is, then multiply that figure by how many pounds of air per square inch.

Then check out the worst numbers of the environmentalists and see how many damaging tons we boost into whatever catastrophe.

If you're good at math, you'll just apologize.

People Who Claim To Worry About Climate Change Don't Cut Energy Use

the_Bionic_lemming Re:user error (710 comments)

People can live without a clothing dryer.

It's been five years for me, and I have an unused front loader dryer for sale.

I have an umbrella line for good weather drying in the good Illinois weather months, and clothing racks and lines for winter drying.

After I switched to air drying, my clothing longevity jumped massively. I went from a pair of jeans lasting a year or two to never wearing out jeans (so far).

I believe that climate is cyclical, and is driven by solar changes, radiation changes, and world tilt. I don't believe in MMGW, and I don't believe we can change global climate.

But it's stupid not to scrub carbon from coal plants, put cleaner water back into the the environment than we take out, and do everything we can to make sure we don't pollute like china does. I don't want cities to be lost in a fog of bad like it regularly happens in China.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/...

I can reliably say that China smog has no effect on Illinois. And that's why I think we should focus on real issues like local contamination rather than focus on enriching people that make money on carbon trading credits.

Predicting a Future Free of Dollar Bills

the_Bionic_lemming Never going to happen (753 comments)

A cashless society is doomed to serfs and kings.

Whenever the kings want more, they raise the prices by adding fees.

Serfs will have no say in the matter.

Mars (One) Needs Payloads

the_Bionic_lemming I want to send a carved rock (77 comments)

If I had the money to buy the mission, I'd send a carved rock to be deployed that would indicate that either John Carter or I owned Mars, and that we would have to sword fight for ownership.

My guess is that John Carter never made it to Mars, but if he did and and If I had to I could arrange a meeting place and nuke the entire site from orbit. Itâ(TM)s the only way to be sure. Cause I suck at sword fighting.

By 2045 'The Top Species Will No Longer Be Humans,' and That Could Be a Problem

the_Bionic_lemming AHHHHHH!!!!! (564 comments)

I have to worry about terminators now? I've spent the last 40 years scared to death of the big radioactive insects and gigantic dinosaurs stomping the cities apart!

I've been waiting in vain for the flying cars and the shuttles off planet during all that time, but have been a bit disappointed.

I shall run screaming from the oncoming robot overlord killing machines!

Ahhhh! Ahhhhh! - Gahhk!

Good search engines that do not censor?

the_Bionic_lemming the_Bionic_lemming writes  |  about 2 years ago

the_Bionic_lemming (446569) writes "A friend of mine asked me to help him find some cigars, and I told him to use google shopping to get the best prices. Much to my surprise, the search yielded 0 results.
I then looked around and found an article that talks about google also censoring guns from search results.

Since I haven't done much shopping online, are there any good non censoring web sites left that allow adults to shop and buy things they are legally entitled to buy?

So far all I have is these."

When an LLC fails

the_Bionic_lemming the_Bionic_lemming writes  |  more than 5 years ago

the_Bionic_lemming writes "About a Year ago my father started a LLC with two other partners. He asked me to help get him a web presence so I hosted with an online host and set up their website on the name of their new llc. I created the basics, modded some photo's for them, and then expanded it with custom contact pages and patchworked a decent site for them. I then searched for an easier URL for them to type in and found a catchy one that fit in well with what they are doing. They immediately switched to using this on their t-shirts, coffee mugs, contact cards — etc. Since it was family, I never billed for work as I was to be hired on when it grew to a sustainable level to justify adding a tech department and would receive a good bonus as well. The partners now want to dissolve the llc, kick my dad out, and reform the LLC.

Now, I never got paid for any of this, so my question is, do I still own my code, and more importantly, what are my rights since I want my dad to reform his own company under the URL I purchased and allowed him to use?"

Virgin Galactic Explosion

the_Bionic_lemming the_Bionic_lemming writes  |  about 7 years ago

the_Bionic_lemming (446569) writes "An explosion at an airport home to Scaled Composites — the builder of the first private manned rocket to reach space — killed two people and left four seriously hurt Thursday, a Kern County Fire Department official says. It happened at the Mojave Air and Space Port during a test of a new rocket motor for SpaceShipTwo — a spaceship being built for Virgin Galactic, Richard Branson's space tourism company, a source said. The motor uses nitrous oxide, the source said."
