    Re: Help Mirror WikiLeaks if you can

    A summary of what?

    My country is busy making noise about declaring Wikileaks a "foreign terrorist organization." There's good, practical reasons not to even share a few songs on P2P. If the RIAA...

    Re: About Google Adwords???

    Google and Facebook are both atrocious violators of privacy, even though the specific methods of collection differ from service to service based on the scope of each.

    How many people even...

    Re: Help Mirror WikiLeaks if you can

    As much as I might want to mirror this, I don't fancy having my door kicked in and all my hardware carted off.

    If you object to Facebook on privacy grounds, that also excludes Google, and just about every other modern advertising company, none of whom care about user privacy, where they spew their tracked...

    Re: Stop Unity... Yes? No?

    What I've been saying all along is that the current UI is sufficient and fine for those not looking for an OSX clone.

    The opportunity cost of development is development elsewhere. Every hour spent...

    Re: Stop Unity... Yes? No?

    Once again, the substructure is severable from the UI changes. That analogy isn't parallel.

    Are you daft? I've pointed out several times that the substructure changes are severable from the visual changes. There was no need to force a new interface to realize those benefits, yet the devs...

    Re: Stop Unity... Yes? No?

    The existing choice is no longer trendy enough for further refinement and optimization, and may eventually lose compatibility with apps dependent on a new framework, not a new UI.

    That is an unwarranted personal attack. Both sides here are in agreement that classic will be depreciated, yet you accuse me of "trolling" for lamenting the loss of ongoing development and support...

    Re: Stop Unity... Yes? No?

    Thank you for proving my point. Rather than polish out the problems, the Unity and Gshell teams have both decided to completely overhaul the UI.

    Redistributing or making better use of addresses frees up more time for a smooth transition to 6. The Internet can grow by better use of what it already has while engineers are busy implementing the...

    Re: Stop Unity... Yes? No?

    It's not a useless distinction. It does matter.

    You may want Unity, but that doesn't make it true for everyone.

    "This interface sucks, it's annoying and makes me feel unproductive" is the exact same as "I don't like the taste of asparagus."

    Re: Stop Unity... Yes? No?

    It's funny to watch so many fervent Unity supporters try and convince the rest they've got a problem they never knew they had.

    Seems like an, "Eat your asparagus, you'll like it" mentality.
  18. Re: What will actually happen in the event of total IPv4 exhaustion?

    The Internet will not stop growing.

    The IPv4 exhaustion fears are being overplayed. Yes, they're constricting, and they will eventually run out. We need to move to 6.

    That being said, there is...

    Covering all possible outcomes introduces a new outcome that need be covered, and so on, and so forth, in a recursive fashion. That's the mental equivalent of :(){ :|: & };: (don't run that).

    Re: Skype ethics and Ubuntu/Canonical: logic fails

    Not true. Users are still free to install Skype. Nobody's making a decision for users by refusing to put the Ubuntu brand behind Skype, and instead requiring users to get a .deb from skype.com.
