Overnight Open Thread (7-27-2016)

Quote of the Day I - Tanned, Rested and Ready Edition

If you divided Richard Nixon into two and imbued each of the Redux Nixons with one part of the 37th president's ugliest features, you might get an election something like 2016.

-- Sonny Bunch

Quote of the Day II

Oh, and let's return to the fact that Bill needed to humanize Hillary Clinton. The woman has been in public life for three decades and the highest best use of her former president husband is to spend an entire convention speech trying to convince voters that she's human.

-- Jonah Goldberg

Quote of the Day III

The next decade will show how successful the Russians are with post-Soviet designs, but the last decade of the Soviet Union did produce some solid aircraft that are lending themselves well to modernization.

We'll see what the Russians can do with a soft economy head wind, but watch closely - the Russians are never as weak or as strong as they seem.

-- CDR Salamander

Quote of the Day IV

I don't even know what "Expanded Universe" is.

-- Steven Den Beste referring to this comic

Actress Amber Tamblyn Has a Lot to Learn About Trans Women's Reproductive Rights

When asked if trans women are "being denied their reproductive rights" Pressley was stumped.

"You got me on that one."

Tamblyn chimed in, arguing that the reproductive rights of trans women are at the forefront of the conversation at Planned Parenthood, where the Grudge 2 star sits on the board of directors.

"I wouldn't know any statistics on that but I would say that goes again with the same notion of community, and fighting for everyone together," Tamblyn said. "That for me as a heterosexual white woman to talk about reproductive rights and sit on the board of directors for Planned Parenthood, I have to not just talk about my people. I have to talk about everybody. And that's a huge thing, and that's a major part of the discussion."

Tamblyn admitted she has a lot to learn about whether biological men are being denied abortions.

And here is Muggeridge's Law in video form.

But they got what they wanted: scapegoats and popularity.

The Baltimore Sun has an interesting run-down of reaction to these developments. It would appear that Ms. Mosby retains significant support in Baltimore's African-American community, notwithstanding the wasted resources devoted to these prosecutions. Ms. Mosby declined to answer questions at her news conference, citing civil lawsuits that have been filed against her.

A B-52 Raid on North Vietnam during Linebacker II in Real Time

Here Tim Vasquez took the 43 minute audio of a B-52 bombing mission over Hanoi on Dec. 26, 1972 and turned it into a video with subtitles, a live real-time map of the all air assets in the area, and pop-up glossaries and annotations so you can understand what is going on. It's very well done and I could easily see someone taking this idea, polishing it up and adding in some interviews with crews and narration and making it into a documentary or possibly even a series. The audio is a little scratchy early on and could use some cleaning up.

At 15 minutes in the B-52s (LILAC) start having to fight their way through SAMs, at 26 minutes they're over Hanoi and start their bomb runs, at 27 minutes the first BUFF gets shot down. From the YouTube comments it turns out that one of the two survivors of the crash of ASH-1 was co-pilot Bob Hymel. He went on to retire from the Air Force as a Lieutenant Colonel and then joined the DIA. He was killed in the Pentagon on 9/11. (via fellow moron XbradTC)

1 Intersectional Irony of Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood has jumped on the entire "intersectionality" bandwagon. In addition to fighting against the so-called Patriarchy by aborting babies, who are disproportionately Black and poor, they want to fight the "White man" (presumably the Kyriarchy overall) by "dismantling" "systems of oppression". Well, if Planned Parent hood is good at anything, it's "dismantling", especially dismantling Black babies.

I have a question for the older Ron's and 'ettes: I was only alive for the last oh, 15 years of the cold war, so I definitely never saw a full scale drill. Were the 'get to a shelter' sirens the same as you had for tornadoes now? How could you tell the difference for whether it was a nuclear attack drill or a tornado?

Just curious.

120 So I finally gave in and took a ride on the Hamilton train. I mean, I didn't buy a ticket or anything - I listened to free videos of the original cast recording.

And it was...good. I'm not huge into musicals so it was never going to blow me away, but it has some catchy songs and I don't mind the rap.

I do, however, mind the blackwashing of white characters, and the subtle-as-a-hammer message about immigration ("See! See! An immigrant was one of our most important founders!") So Lin-Miguel Miranda will never get a cent from me, nor will I suggest that my friends go pay to see it - I would suggest they do what I do and get the free experience if they want to see what the fuss is all about.

If they actually take steps to reveal and prevent vote fraud, that helps even more.

249 OT- Back in 2009 during the run-up to passage of Obamacare, Obama put in an appearance in Grand Junction, touting the "Grand Junction Model" of healthcare. That is basically a heavily Family Practice oriented system with a dominant regional insurance company that was largely based on an outdated HMO model. Financial incentives for FP's to not treat elderly (push to hospice care) and save Medicare bucks, and also discourage referrals to specialists for specialty care.

In major news this week, that particular regional insurance company (Rocky Mountain Health Plans) was just acquired by United Healthcare, one of the few remaining insurance giants.

The "Grand Junction Model" is dead. Long live the new "Grand Junction Model".

While the campus New Left were loudly denouncing the B-52 strikes as indiscriminate mass bombing of a civilian population center, in reality, an extraordinary amount of care had been taken to ensure that North Vietnamese civilian casualties were held to an absolute minimum.

The guidance and targeting technology of the era required, to accomplish this end, that the B-52s, grouped into multi-ship "cells", proceed in straight lines at fixed altitudes, making their odds of coming successfully through the single most dense SAM belt on the planet much less than would otherwise have been the case.

Good men died, and others went to the Hanoi Hilton, over an absurdly mincing standard of political correctness in wartime. What's past is prologue.

The one officer to go to trial before a jury was nearly acquitted on all charges, with the vote to acquit 11-1 on the most serious charge of involuntary manslaughter.

2) to quote my CD booklet "The Attack Warning Signal: This will be sounded only in case of enemy attack. The signal itself is a 3-5 minute wavering sound on the sirens, or a series of short blasts on whistles, horns or other devices, repeated as necessary. The Attack Warning Signal means that an attack against the United States has been detected and that protective action should be taken immediately

It also states that different municipalities use the signals in different ways, to signal natural disasters, but most have determined to use the standard signals.

You see, Uncle needs funding for the massive deficits. That $20T debt is going to double to $40T in the next 8 years or so, and boy are they gonna need some funding.

They have many Hollywood people on their board, such as Shonda Rhimes, who produces a handful of hit tv dramas, and Lena Dunham is very actively involved (not sure if she's on the BoD). It's their reach. For example, Rhimes writes pro-abortion stories into her shows, Lena did a book tour that doubled as a PP fundraiser (so she charged admission). It's all about the PR and $$$.

534 That article on olive oil makes an interesting point about some cultures having trouble differentiating between the colors blue and green. This is something I've read about before, and it's actually caused by language shaping the way we see colors.

See, the Japanese are one culture than can have trouble telling green from blue, and it's largely because they have one word, aoi, than can mean blue or green. They also have a word, midori, that specifically means green, but that's more like a shade of aoi to them, much like we see turquoise as a shade of blue. But then, many Americans have trouble telling the difference between turquoise and aqua. And the Japanese even consider cigarette smoke to be blue, whereas Americans will insist it's grey.

Russians are the best in the world as a people at telling the difference between different shades of blue and bluish colors, because they have two different words for what we just call blue; one word for darker shades of blue, and one word for lighter shades of blue. Russians perceive both types of blue as different colors as a result of this linguistic quirk.

Conversely, several African languages just have one word for red which covers both red and orange. Native speakers of those languages have difficulty telling the difference between various shades of red, orange, pink and peach as a result.

Language has a huge impact on how we perceive color.

I think more young Japanese are starting to use the straight loan words and considering green and blue different. For example, a Japenese university would probably say pinku for pink instead of momoiro (literally peach colored).

I still don't think they have a good loanword for brown or gray, though.

Look into the Whorf/Sapir hypothesis. It's largely seen as discredited by Those Whose Opinions Matter, but it sounds pretty good to The Rest of Us Who Use Common Sense. Essentially, it says that you perceive the differences between things that have different words in your language, and miss distinctions between different things that are covered by the same word. George Orwell's Newspeak relied greatly upon this concept.

629 Wheeeww. I don't know what I was so worried. I just looked up the CBO's latest (rosy scenario) projections. We're only gonna need to borrow another $10T by 2026.

For reference, in 1998 or so, the CBO's ten year projection had the federal debt completely paid off by 2008 or so. Remember when we ran surpluses there for a while? Extending that out, the federal debt was going to be retired. One year actually had a real, on budget surplus, not cheating by adding the social security surplus into the whole thing. There were several year than had that sum running a surplus.

This worried Greenspan at the time. He was worried there wouldn't be any more Ts out there to conduct monetary operations with, and fretted they would have to do something about that.

Really. This is not a joke. The CBO said we would be in surplus now, and 9 years ago or so. Instead, we're $20T in debt.

Just keep that in mind with that "only" $10T more debt projection.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at July 28, 2016 12:23 AM (GSdpU) "

They tend to relate the color to a common object.

Pink is momo iro (peach color..even though peaches aren't pink)

Brown is cha iro (tea clolor)

Gray is hai iro (ash color)

Even yellow is a contraction of this type of construction - kiiro, contracted from kiniro (gold color).

But again, a lot of people started to replace those with loanwords. Pink is just 'pinku'. Gray is 'gure (gooray).

658 See, the Japanese are one culture than can have trouble telling green from blue, and it's largely because they have one word, aoi, than can mean blue or green. They also have a word, midori, that specifically means green, but that's more like a shade of aoi to them, much like we see turquoise as a shade of blue.

...Language has a huge impact on how we perceive color.
Posted by: Prothonotary Warbler... Ask not for whom The Donald Trumps. at July 28, 2016 12:07 AM (0OG8D)


Just to be clear the Japanese have no problems visually distinguishing blue items from green items. Their eyes work just like everyone else's - it just that their language doesn't explicitly make the distinction. And truthfully this particular difference doesn't really come into play that much in daily life.

The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis in its strong form is false. In its weak form...possibly true in some circumstances.

Posted by: Maetenloch at July 28, 2016 12:33 AM (wqVD1)

659 And the Japanese even consider cigarette smoke to be blue, whereas Americans will insist it's grey.

Cigarette smoke curling straight from the coal is blue. When you suck it into your lungs it get imbued with moisture, and it is grey when you exhale.

I am told it is because when it sucks up moisture the particles are slightly larger and refract light differently.
(trust me, ex-smoker)

This is edging into neuro-linguistic programming area, which is pretty much useless garbage.
It isn't that the perception is blunted because of lack of differentiated language, it is that the difference is not considered, because of the framework of language and cultural convnentions, to be unimportant in every day issues. A specialist, like an artist or a chemist, or an ink manufacturer in Japancan tell the difference and describe it, because it is important.

Just like the kid from Missouri may not be able to tell the difference between the different types of sea-ice like an Inuit kid can, just from having the words in every day language and having sea-ice a yearly thing, but put him trying to walk out on the ice he will not only see the difference but damned well make up names for it too.

675 To be fair, some of my experience with how the Japanese speak is second-hand.

But I've found in recent anime, characters tend to say 'midori' for green. Using aoi is almost always for characterization - someone who is rooted in the past, or maybe haughty.

Why are you letting this trivial shit upset you so much? Just ignore it.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at July 28, 2016 12:31 AM (GSdpU)


I'm not personally upset -- I just think there should be consequences for side-bets that incidentally shit on our host and the community. I don't personally care if they're banned for a month, banned for a week, banned for a day, or let off with a warning -- but I'd like to see a shot across their bow to head off the next bout of stupidity.

And it's not about discussing one unpopular issue.....it's about repeating it again and again and again and again and again and again and again, poisoning every thread through massive repetition. I think people would be just sniggering if it were merely the first iforgot post in every thread.

This site is maintained by unpaid volunteer labor from Cobs who spend inordinate amounts of time dealing with hamsters to keep things fun. I'm unsympathetic about commenters who make it a more miserable place by fixating on their own situations.

Anything you create with Win10 can be used by Microsoft, royalty free. They send info about what you are doing to Microsoft Central on a daily basis. They can install or uninistall whatever they want on your system at any time.

I will never install or run Win 10 on a system that I own -- because doing so would mean I no longer own it.

Is

you were using before -- that would be Win 7 for me which I am "happy"
with. I tend not to believe this.

Not a techie -- so it would be a
pain for me to tweak out all the bad stuff, but I don't trust MS to not
do something punitive to those who do not sign up for the "free" Win
10.

Thoughts? Thx

cthulhuhuluhu, is that "control panel" whatever thingy a solution to the Win10 problem?





I'm subsisting just fine on an older laptop with a much older Win version, but I can see some time having to change.





And how can MS actually "own" anything done on Win10? Wouldn't that
mean they'd own half the economy? Doesn't sound quite correct.



Posted by: rhomboid at July 28, 2016 01:07 AM (QDnY+)


Yes, the widely circulated utility to put a stick in the spokes of Win10 automatic update is a solution. Install it before your computer is exposed to Microsoft's crap on the internet, and (so far!) it keeps you safe.

And, let me point this out to you VERY CLEARLY: "And how can MS actually "own" anything done on Win10? Wouldn't that
mean they'd own half the economy?" is EXACTLY why they're pushing Win10 so hard and why anyone sane and aware will refuse it. It's not in the software, that works about 102% as well as Win7 and about 180% better than Win8 -- it's in the license agreement, which is the IP equivalent of rape.

I hate to break it to you but apple has been far worse in dropping some of their old systems and cutting support off. I had a friend who was in printing and he almost went broke when apple changed one of its OSs and pulled all support for his line.

In Linux-land, software updates come with notices like "CVE 2015-1837". If you fail to install those updates, you need to understand that "CVE 2015-1837" is well-documented, bad players have read that documentation, constructed attacks based on that documentation, and know that they have a limited window to do harm to your systems until you install the update.

The full vulnerabilities are disclosed every time they are closed in Linux-land.

I consider it a very good idea to install the updates the day I receive them.

So load up the latest thing with with every thing that microsoft ever wanted to fuck people with and give it away free... but you never own it.

It's all free, it's all supported by a network of volunteers. But it's also supposed to be... 100% uncommercial software. Meaning that if you ever use it to make money, you're supposedly breaking the license.

Again, this is probably just as enforceable as Microsoft claiming to own everything you do on your computer forever. Still, it's disconcerting IMHO if it's true.

But would people stop using their products? I doubt that, a lot of their software is *the* gold standard in too many offices throughout the entire world.

Posted by: qdpsteve at July 28, 2016 01:34 AM (q7T0y)


They don't 'own' them... but by 'signing' the license agreement you give them an unlimited irrevocable License to use, or change, your content...

Sophistry.... but its the same thing as Google and Yahoo have been using for a long time.

869 In Linux-land, software updates come with notices like "CVE 2015-1837". If you fail to install those updates, you need to understand that "CVE 2015-1837" is well-documented, bad players have read that documentation, constructed attacks based on that documentation, and know that they have a limited window to do harm to your systems until you install the update.

The full vulnerabilities are disclosed every time they are closed in Linux-land.

I consider it a very good idea to install the updates the day I receive them.

Posted by: cthulhu at July 28, 2016 01:32 AM (EzgxV)


I will probably bear that in mind on my Linux box. I got burned by losing functionality on my XP machine after a Windows update, and could never recover that loss. But I don't think the Linux community is working hand-in-glove with IP-rights managers the way that MS and Apple do.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at July 28, 2016 01:37 AM (GSdpU)

While they were willing to surrender all such rights for anything associated with the business, they had no intention of doing so for projects pursued on their own time.

872 Yesh. Win xp and 7 worked fine and with the clusterfuck that was vista and 8, they realize that people don't want their new "improved" shit. So load up the latest thing with with every thing that microsoft ever wanted to fuck people with and give it away free... but you never own it. I still use XP and don't want to change... but, things are starting to get dicey with getting stuff to work that used to work fine. May have to load 7 on a new hard drive.


Posted by: otho at July 28, 2016 01:34 AM (EWg9n)



And it is kind of stupid. Because people do want new and improved shit. Its just that they want it to actually be improved. For instance Windows 10 does not have the 16GB RAM limitation on its base versions that Windows 7 has. That is an actual improvement. Its just probably not a "sexy" improvement that the idiots in Redmond think is great but everyone else believes are fucking stupid. See: Office 2007 redesign.

Posted by: buzzion at July 28, 2016 01:38 AM (bMG0w)

873 qdp, I meant that 1) MS's assertion of rights over things produced with 10 fail, quickly, or 2) if they succeed, THEN MS is obliterated as the entire world abandons what is obviously an unusable bit of software (using it hands your business over to someone else).


Bottom line - not a chance of seeing a dime from this bizarre move.

I don't know where this keeps coming from, but it keeps coming!

A lot of people are either applying Beta agreements to release - the Beta did a lot more telemetry because *they* were testing how people use things and looking for improvements (lazily, perhaps, but looking).

Also they're confusing pretty standard online storage warnings about how your data is on someone else's server (like everyone else - so don't use the online storage if that's a problem), or the Xbox Live warnings (because its integrated, as an option, in Win10 now). You know, don't hack your XBL account and cheat in online MP games, like Steam or other online services say.

The store apps have the same crap agreements that Android or iPhone apps have, but they're also optional.

If MS did half the things they're accused of, even in our modern ignorant and corrupt society, they'd be sued to dust and lose all their sales.

They *did* make it harder to control your telemetry and privacy settings, in the name of "ease of use," but it can all still be done.

Ultimately how this all washes out, I think eventually they would like to be on a subscription model, but they know the customers aren't there yet.

Cooth likes Ubuntu; I installed and use Linux Mint on my computer in Arizona. You can download an iso (the file that burns to a DVD disc) of Mint, or other distros, free, off many trustworthy sites. I chose Mint because reviews I read said that it was the distro that best met the needs of a Windows user wanting to get his feet wet in Linux.


So you download the iso, and you may also need to download a utility to burn it direct to the DVD, as most standard disk-writing software doesn't expect to be given an iso to burn, and tries to rejigger them. This is dead easy; they tell you where to get the utility, and how to use it, cookbook style. Now, once you have burned the DVD, you can boot your computer off the DVD drive, and Presto!, you are running Linux. Without altering a jot or tittle of your hard drive. So the total cost to you is one blank DVD.


Mint comes with LibreOffice, and a host of other apps, and supports a number of printers etc. with native drivers. If you decide you like using it, you can install direct from the DVD, either in a separate partition (dual boot with your existing OS) or format the HD and install as a fresh install. In my case, I chose the latter, as the Win7 on the box was morked, and there were private files from the machine's prior owner I wanted gone.

Cuth, can you point to the parts of the Windows 10 user agreement that would give Microsoft rights to any IP created using a Win 10 system?

Corporate attorneys may be annoying but they're also not stupid. If there was a clause potentially giving MS ownership rights to any intellectual property, they would be squawking up a storm and demanding specific IP exemption agreements from Microsoft. I've heard nothing of this sort.

Microsoft is trying to go to a software as service and so you would not 'own' the OS in the same way that you 'own' it today i.e. an open-ended license to use it.

I think everybody would like it better if they could automatically just take money from your bank account every month, just the easy way out for them, *and* harder to pirate.

Win10 has actually cut a little into Windows piracy, it seems. Kind of hard to know for sure. There's a grey market in cheap 7 & 8 keys that are nevertheless legit (not volume keys - which are legit, but not always upgradeable).

928 Well, i just harfed from seeing the main photo on Yahoo of The Won and The Won Who Hopes his Magic is congatious. Bless my own heart and retinas.

I have titled photo "Porgy and Bess." They look as if they are about to croon and do the polka. Ohussain and Hilz, Keeper of Emails, are in a dreamy clench. Cheek to cheek, walking on air (in Hilz case, probably orthotics, but I digress).

Bess is wearing a special blend of Mocha Creme Royale pancake foundation, otherwise who would know him, as normally green. He is also wearing eyebrown makeup as pathetic? In play, music by Gershwin, he is "Queen's girl and a woman of disreputable history." Which sounds about right and It is my play and I can cast them however I want.

Porgy, seen in Yahoo photo, is so doped up she cannot stand. She is cast as a "disabled beggar with drug problems." Also sounds about right.

At any rate, the photo gets a Harf 10 award, on scale of 1-10.

I may never sleep again after this trauma...

I see nothing that says MS can root through your My Documents directory. And I've looked.



I do see a lot of stuff about OneDrive and XboxLive, because they
*host* this data, and so they have to make a legal statement about their
responsibilities with regard to these.



But these are optional services.



I've seen a hundred quotations of the OneDrive license but nothing from the Windows license about this.



Their lawyers may be on salary, but they don't have enough of them
if they start playing around on random users' local files. Hell, we'd
run out of corporate lawyers entirely and have to fall back on public
defenders.



I'd like to see such a suicide clause if they hid it somewhere, but I haven't yet.

I am not a "wouldn't hurt a fly" guy - flies, ticks, skeeters, black widows and brown recluses DIE! But friendly bugs get caught in the clear plastic drink cup with a square of cardboard cover, and released outside.

So, I grab a bug cup and the cardboard and capture the big spider. I set my trophy down on a table for a moment, and I see these little dots crawling, radiating out from the spider, and even leaking out of the cup. SQUISH SQUISH SQUISH the escapee dots, rush outside, and HURL the bug cup, cardboard, and Mama spider 'way out into the yard. EEWWGGGHHHH.

Cooth likes Ubuntu; I installed and use Linux Mint on my computer in
Arizona. You can download an iso (the file that burns to a DVD disc) of
Mint, or other distros, free, off many trustworthy sites. I chose Mint
because reviews I read said that it was the distro that best met the
needs of a Windows user wanting to get his feet wet in Linux.





So you download the iso, and you may also need to download a utility
to burn it direct to the DVD, as most standard disk-writing software
doesn't expect to be given an iso to burn, and tries to rejigger them.
This is dead easy; they tell you where to get the utility, and how to
use it, cookbook style. Now, once you have burned the DVD, you can boot
your computer off the DVD drive, and Presto!, you are running Linux.
Without altering a jot or tittle of your hard drive. So the total cost
to you is one blank DVD.





Mint comes with LibreOffice, and a host of other apps, and supports a
number of printers etc. with native drivers. If you decide you like
using it, you can install direct from the DVD, either in a separate
partition (dual boot with your existing OS) or format the HD and install
as a fresh install. In my case, I chose the latter, as the Win7 on the
box was morked, and there were private files from the machine's prior
owner I wanted gone.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at July 28, 2016 02:01 AM (GSdpU)


I can enthusiastically endorse Mint. The system that I'm using to type this runs Mint, and I've had a brief interaction with Clem where I learned a thing or eight. If someone asked me, "I've been running windows for years and want to bail", it would take me about 1/10 of a millisecond to recommend Mint because it is so easy and so user-friendly.

It really leaves you no excuse to stay with Microsoft.

It's not actually all that secret, it's just hugely spread out and documented in 100 different places (probably worse than that). Server 2012 has some tools for intercepting and using that usage data, and they have classes on it.

High-altitude discussion article: http://zd.net/1Q9v3kv

They mention a conference this September on the system.

TechNet has a bunch of stuff: http://bit.ly/2abuKck

Admittedly, that's from the horse's mouth, so if you don't trust the horse, you can only wait for the inevitable folk who will be running a lot of traffic monitoring on their systems.

Also, the same warning you give applies to systemd, so unless you're *really* in control of your Linux, you're kind of in the same place.

Cuth,
can you point to the parts of the Windows 10 user agreement that would
give Microsoft rights to any IP created using a Win 10 system?

Corporate
attorneys may be annoying but they're also not stupid. If there was a
clause potentially giving MS ownership rights to any intellectual
property, they would be squawking up a storm and demanding specific IP
exemption agreements from Microsoft. I've heard nothing of this sort.

Microsoft is
trying to go to a software as service and so you would not 'own' the OS
in the same way that you 'own' it today i.e. an open-ended license to

So, today, I see a swarm of little black ants milling around a crack in the concrete floor of the garage, a separate building some distance away from the other end of the house. Sprayed with brake cleaner, and decided to follow up by pouring some Varsol into the crack in the floor. Lo and behold! There were now a mess of winged ants emerging from the crack! Dumped in the Varsol, and that seems to have got them.

Ubuntu is the easiest - being the most widely used, at the moment. No need to use the command line if you don't want (though it is good to use it). Works with most hardware though there are a few gaps here and there.

My recommendation is put it on a USB drive and run it from there. Don't bother installing it on your hard drive. That's the way I've run all my systems for many years, now. If you don't like it, nothing lost - your old system is unmolested.

It's a cinch to get running and you only need to add a few packages to have all the usual proprietary stuff - mp3 codec, etc. There are a few issues with Adobe flash (I friggin hate that piece of shit program) but you have to run it on your system and see how it goes.

Ubuntu is very good. But Mint is based on Ubuntu with the idea of being friendlier. [Ubuntu, in turn, is based on Debian -- with the idea of being friendlier.] One of the fun things about Linux is that there is a distro focused on any reason you might have to run a system -- if you want to build a firewall router, you can go smoothwall; if you want to attack corporate systems, you can go kali; if you want an easy transition from Windows, you have Mint; if you want a yuuuge database of hardware, you have Ubuntu; if you want stable, you can have Debian; if you want corporate security policies, CentOS looks good....

It's been widely misunderstood. A lot of lawyers at a lot of companies had a major freakout when some early cloud services ran into problems over claim made against them for having copies of user data on their servers, even though this was precisely the function of their service. Pretty much everybody in the cloud services world has language to that effect to protect them from being pecked to death by ducks in the form of ill conceived litigation that requires a savvy judge to keep from running far longer than it deserves.

The general consensus among such corporate counsel is to go on the offensive rather than having to continuously refine the EULAs until a very costly balance is struck. The idea is that litigating the pushback will cost a lot less and have a better chance with them ending up in a preferred position.

You suit the distro to the purpose of the machine. I have a Raspberry Pi that I was using to map the Wi-Fi environment around Casa de Cthulhu.....used Kali. I'm currently on the "goof machine" -- it's Mint. I structured a Raspberry Pi to host print queues from two separate networks.....went with Ubuntu to configure the iptables. Used a Raspberry Pi to play with stepper motors, used Raspbian.

My initial thought for Looking Glass was CentOS, because it was easily configurable with SELinux....but I decided to go with Ubuntu [even thought the documentation says "Debian"] because client VMs use dom0 interfaces (and CentOS required additional squidging to work).

No, you miss the point. There were several calls earlier this evening for the bannination of one or more Morons for really trivial reasons.

It looks fiendish. The Reader's Digest version is that every process and device is spawned into a different virtual machine, and their interactions with every other process/device are strictly controlled.

In context, Ira and I and some other commenters got into a slapfight where we were posting www.tinyurl.com's at each other. Being Morons, we all took this as just good fun, even when Ira got banned. After he was banned, Ira popped a tinyurl link to a picture of a chicken, which I clicked in the short period when it could be seen -- I believe this downloaded polymorphic malware on my system.
Qubes would have isolated and degraded the malware that keylogged me. It's about the only distro that's more paranoid than I am.

Well, it wouldn't be "arbitrary and capricious" if the targets were chosen for some reason, would it? It wasn't done for the sake of humor. It was done to show that arbitrary and capricious banning is hurtful. Now cthulhu called for banning iforget over the repeated posting of the nonsense lines in her posts. And yes, it was getting tiresome, but fell way short of "ban-worthy". So, I guess Ace or one of the cobs decided to nip this in the bud, and arranged a demonstration of capricious banning.

And yes, it was getting tiresome, but fell way short of "ban-worthy". So, I guess Ace or one of the cobs decided to nip this in the bud, and arranged a demonstration of capricious banning.

Maybe I didn't make myself clear. You two were chosen by reason of there being no reason to ban you, thereby creating an object lesson of why arbitrary and capricious banning, or banning for a trivial reason, is a Bad Thing. Kind of like "decimation" in the old Roman Legions.


Or to put it another way, the Banhammer was demonstrating what the Banhammer would be like if the Banhammer were a dick.

That's bullshit! Brian's a brown-noser. He should have been given 2 months of hard labor, digging holes and filling them up, at the school. Then he should have been expelled and the teacher fired. I'd fire three other teachers ... just because they probably deserve to be fired.

1053 The temporary bannings, so far as I could figure, were just jokes. They weren't meant to be instructive. It was just the TB3 having some fun. It was very dry humor. Sorry for those who got caught up in it but I think it was just a gag, going along with the somewhat silly calls for bannings for some reason that I still don't understand.

Not an experiment. An object lesson. If TB3K wants to prove the proposition "arbitrary and capricious banning is a bad thing", he can't do it by banning some Moron who is somehow misbehaving, because then there are those who would say, "well, so and so had it coming". By banning two eminently innocent people, he had us going "huh?" and talking at length about it. Which was the point.

With evidence presented months ago that security on the "Readi-Wipe" server was likely easily breached, to have the techno-illiterari in the MSM immediately transition to the message that Trump called for the Russians to hack Her Majesty's server right now was laughable on its face. Their ignorance, deliberate or otherwise, is proof positive that taking their word on anything is a fool's errand.

Full, high-ridin' C-cups, stop-you-in-your-tracks face, unbelievable legs and butt. One of those very fit and toned *yet not at all muscle-y* types.

Aye, but here lies the rub: about 75% of her body was covered with tattoos. Entire paragraphs of something or other inscribed in script on the inside of each arm. And lots of cheap, tawdry random stuff all down her legs, outside of her arms, back and stomach.

That body was a work of art as G-d made it. It's like going to The Louvre and Jackson Pollacking the masterpieces.

1110 Good Morning Morons. Today is Thursday, July 28, 2016. On this day in 1932 Herbert Hoover ordered the Army under General McArthur to forcibly evict the so-called "Bonus Army" of World War I veterans, their wives, and children gathered in Washington, D.C. So McArthur hit them with troops and tanks which was a clear violation of the Posse Comitatus Act. Congress eventually gave in and paid their bonuses early. In today's corrupt political atmosphere a Republican President would be impeached. Not so a Democrat.

1117 A federal judge appointed by Clinton and easily confirmed by a Republican Senate in 1994 has released Reagan shooter John Hinkley. This despite a medical ruling that James Brady died from complications arising from that shooting making that capital murder. Yeah, Brady is fine for a figurehead for the gun grabbing commies to march out for gun confiscation but they are OK with one of their judges letting his killer walk. Especially since it was an evil Republican he tried to kill. It was bad enough that he got off on the Jodie Foster defense, now he walks. If they are saying he is now sane why isn't his sentence one that puts him in an actual prison for life? No, that would be justice. Courts have not been a place of justice for a long time.

Of course the corrupt racist Baltimore States Attorney had to get her 2 cents in. And she is being sued by the cops for false charges. But the sad thing is that only the taxpayers will be held accountable. She should be disbarred and charged herself but that will never happen.

I don't see why he doesn't just go ahead and join the Communist Party. He has openly admitted he is a communist and doesn't like the Democrats because they are not communist enough.

1127 Wikileaks dump shows Democrats cheered loss of jobs and unemployment in NC because they think it helps their chances in an increasingly purple NC. They can only get benefit from this as long as they have the lying press in their back pocket "like so many nickels and dimes". Yes, there is high unemployment in NC. The same as all the rest of the States except TX. That is because we are still mired in the Obamanomics depression.

All because one of those thugs in black robes said we could not keep these felons in jail if their country will not take them back and Obama is doing nothing to send them back. We should have sent this SOB to GITMO and then paraded him out the gate at gun-point and said here Cuba, he's yours, take him.

House Republican has floated a bill that would restore federal spending power to Congress and originating in the House as the constitution says. It has long been a practice of federal agencies to fund their own operations with fees and fines, which actually should be illegal. And I can tell you from personal experience that federal agencies set the fees and fines themselves with no congressional input what-so-ever.

1141 I am not a fan of O'Reilly's but what he said about the building of the WH was correct - and of course it was twisted by the ignorant media.

1. O'Reilly pointed out that the WH was built by both slave and free labor. The non-slaves were paid. Slave owners were paid for the use of their slaves. He did not say the slaves were themselves paid.

2. The slaves were indeed decently fed - because it makes no sense whatsoever to buy a slave at considerable expense and then starve the slave so he can't work. That's another reason why the whole idea that most were beaten and abused on a routine basis is horseshit. Even if an owner was not particularly humane, the fact that slaves were valuable and expensive -and slaves who were skilled in carpentry would have been especially valuable - provided incentive to treat them well.

Eugene Genovese (started out as a Commie historian, ended up as a conservative and Catholic) was a great authority on slaves and he pointed out that American slaves were the only ones in the Western Hemisphere to reproduce as such high rates their ranks grew even after the supply line from Africa was cut off.

Slavery was horrible but it wasn't the same as being in Auschwitz, where the "workers" were considered worthless, and if they escaped the gas chamber, were starved and worked and beaten until dead. The average plantation was not a concentration camp.

The Federal Bureaucracy has been corrupted for decades. Its just another weapon the Dems use for "Progress" and that corruption predates Obama and his Fascist Barbarians.
