The endorsements, by contrast, are done by people who have no clue about what you do.
I get these all the time. I never give them out, as it feels like I'm be compelled to. So long as I never do it, the excuse of "I barely use Linkedin." works for any time anyone asks me why I never endorse them.
But no one's ever asked. It's a pointless exercise, meaningless to the nth degree, and no one cares.
If they do it they lose that moral high-horse called "Only liberals protest violently."
Yep. I do 3D modeling/rendering, VR, and that sort. So I built a new one... but my last PC was a AMD X4 thing with 8GB of ram. It would have been fine if not for that. Computers are always useful, so I stuck it under the TV and use it to play emulated games.
The old computer before the old computer (Dual Core Pentium, 2GB of ram) is stuck in the back of the house, dutifully acting as a DVR for a security camera... but it's still snappy and responsive for pretty much any typical consumer task.
Thinking about it, I may have built my last PC for the next 10 years, the motherboard isn't nearly maxed out on ram yet (32 vs 128), better video cards still come out every year, and when the time comes to start fresh, the market may be completely different. The next system could be some floating image beaming out of a tiny slab connected remotely to a unimaginably fast cloud computer somewhere. I may not even care that the traditional PC market had died.
Lots of people break laws they disagree with, whatever.
What we take issue with are hypocrites who secretly break laws they actively promote and expect others to follow.
Political crooks like that will promise, pass, and campaign for the thing, while doing it on an industrial level in the down-low.
Less competition means more for them, and they're okay with using big government to put you little guys away for the same shit they do.
And you compared this to anti-war activism... man get a clue.
He said civilised, not civilized. English and American notions of the concept do not align.
Although I'm being facetious, it really is a loaded term. You two could argue about it until the sun explodes and get nowhere.
On one hand, I don't think that Microsoft can be trusted with sensitive government data, and that the government will probably have to pick a new operating system or make their own in order to help ensure their security.
On the other hand, I don't believe the government can be trusted with sensitive government data.
Your program is sick! Shoot it and put it out of its memory.
