Freaking wonderful! Just when I thought to lunatics in my states legislature could not get any worse. Between Rick Perry and this jack wagon, I am running out of reasons to love the state I live in. I sincerely hope that this crap gets shot down.
Again with the ignorant and inane attacks on one side of our fecked up political/social system.
The cause for this clearly falls back onto both sides of the spectrum. The current overreach in all facets of life were started and are being upheld by both ends.
Corruption and Stupidity have no boundaries(or limits unfortunately). Please keep trollish crap like this to yourself. I does nothing to further the intelligent discussion. And yes the parody statements above are still intelligent as they clearly took rational thought to create.
This is exactly why no one on here(or likely any forum you stain with your presence) takes anything you say with any level of seriousness. You are willfully blind to anything resembling logic, common sense, etc... You are the epitome of what is wrong with the US and the world in general. It does not matter who you support or don't support. Your uninformed and most time, unformed opinions are rarely ever backed by significant facts or statistics.
Please for the love of all that is sane, intelligent and generally decent in this world, get over your crush on Mike, the Tims, and Leigh. The rest of us would like to continue reading/discussing(intelligently) the topics that are presented here.
Enough with this inane crap trying to polarize this to one particular party/politician.
IIRC, GWBush instituted this particular version of privacy invasion. Obama has upheld/renewed it, but he did not start it. Many of the current BS in regards to invasion of privacy and erosion of rights began very soon after 9/11, this means the "laws" were created/implemented by GW and what ever jackasses were in Congress at that time.
Please understand, Obama is not blameless, he could have pushed to reduce or overturn these ridiculous "laws".
However, he did not and neither have enough of the Republican or Democratic politicians. The entire government is corrupted by the power and prestige of their offices. Even those who on occasion, vote for worthwhile issues and cause(however they impact you or yours).
So nice to see it took the better part of a day for you to respond. Did you finally tire of the twitterverse? Or have you run out of aliases and the bots are getting overloaded trying to respond?
Please enlighten us.
This stupid jack ass won't even let the reporter speak. Keeps asking to speak with his boss, the reporter agrees to let him speak to his boss, but when the reporter tries to say he anything, Hess just overrides him with more empty legal bullshit.
Talk about someone with a serious sense of self importance. He keeps referencing people who have complained, but I will lay odds that the people who have complained are his little toadies.
Well in the case of my oldest child, the district where he attends school issues netbooks to Middle school and High school students. As it would be cost prohibitive to install the required network drops in addition to the additional network gear, using a protected WiFi system was the best and most cost effective solution.
I have assisted in projects at my employer to expand office space and install additional network drops and gear. When you factor the hourly rate for the wiring techs, the cost of cabling and accessories, and the network gear to expand the network to accommodate the expansion, adding just 30 cubes can easily run into tens of thousands of dollars.
Now expand that to a multi-room school and you can see that the cost to wire it would easily reach into 6 figures.
You are assuming that it is within the realm of possibility for her "brain" to get in gear. Based on the linked articles, her own inane statements, and her general lack of anything resembling intelligence, I am pretty certain the gears are fully stripped and may not exist in any usable form.
That being said, Teri Buhl, please keep digging. You have been added to the likes of Charles Carreon, John Steele and Brett Gibbs. Congratulations on your demotion to the rank of internet parasite.
As a current member of the IT/IS world, and one who did his time in a help desk role, I could not agree more.
We typically used PICNIC when discussing user related issues.
I will have to remember the Layer 8 reference. Have not seen that one before.
There is no obviousness to this. Quirky's design is simply a dust pan with teeth to clean the broom. OXO, on the other hand, includes a recessed area to facilitate collection of dust, hair, etc... to include what the teeth knock off. Quirky got butt hurt over nothing. OXO did not sue or take any legal action. Quirky got their knickers in a twist over something stupid.
Here is some more funny...listing of the Patents they own, applied for, purchases, etc...
Soverain Software currently owns a portfolio of more than 50 issued and pending U.S. and international patents. Many of these patents resulted from Open Marketís pioneering research and development, and date back to applications filed in the 1993-1995 timeframe.
Among the technologies addressed by this portfolio are:
Internet-based systems for making secure payments
Online purchasing methodologies
Online shopping cart system
Online advertising creation and product fulfillment
Online customer service
Hypertext-based linking and authentication
Multi-merchant/-site transaction processing and order fulfillment
Session management in the stateless environment of the Internet
Mapping telephone numbers to URLs - Doesn't Apple have this one in the bag already???
Just a funny little point for this shady ass organization. Digging around the Soverain site, I found a link to a PDF about Patent Validity(Patent Valid and Infringed). The PDF it links to only shows the East Texas Ruling, but mentions nothing about the Appeals court overturning and invalidating these patents. http://www.soverain.com/pdf/patents_found_valid_and_infringed.pdf
As in most cases, trolls(or those who exhibit trollish behavior) never learn.
