Great, what will those wacky liberals think of next? At what point is it considered ok to air a “movie” where a sitting President gets killed? I can’t imagine the outrage if a conservative showed a movie in which a sitting liberal President was shot. This goes way beyond acceptable. I like the fact that the Channel4 which is publically funded will be airing this. What is even better is the movie that is in the works in regards to Tony Blair’s legal problems. Come on people, this is not acceptable disagreement or discourse. This is blind hate…
This time it is on Xubuntu, nice blog, I like the hints and trips.
I’ve been following this slightly, mostly the reaction that has been out in the blogsphere when it was first announced and directly slammed. Just view one comment from the announcment “when do
- SatanIX (v. 6.66)
And you will see the bigotry that is out there. Thisis a great idea not only for church’s but also poorer Bible students that want to be able to study the Bible. Great job.
Update: So I just got this setup in a VM Ware and I like it a lot. There needs to be some documentation in regards to this, maybe I’ll work on that as well? Also the Bible program is really good, I was very impressed, it will be useful to many. Also a nice content filter that works well.
Another great review on Ubuntu, the community should really get this guy to start helping out w/ making things better. He has great ideas in regards to where Ubuntu goes, and I hope that someone should get him involved somehow. I can’t quite tell if he would be good to have on the developer team or someplace esle, but get him on board.
I agree that Linux is still not ready for the average user. My wife or my mother will not use Linux on a regular basis, it becomes complicated, especially if they can view some webpages due to Flash or some other plugin. Make it easier for them to install these missing plugins and you will help win the battle.
I wonder if anyone at Ubuntu is working w/ the average user to make things easier and better for them.
In a blog about Windows Media Center, Matt Goyer who worked for Microsoft announced he is leaving the company. The question he states at the end of his entry is the bigger deal. How does a company like MS keep fresh talent interested in working on things?
When I left jobs, the problem didn’t lie w/ the employer, the reason to change was mostly on my end. I was bored of doing the same thing day in and day out and wanted new scenery. Now I didn’t really do the same thing every day, no one really days, it just felt like I was bored. There were new programs comming in to learn and maintain and also new responsiblities as my job grew that would challenge me, however I was board.
I think that is why some the “big talent” leaves these companies. They get bored of creating product and releasing or working on products that haven’t been released yet. The company can be at fault for not challenging them, but I think it rests more on the individual then on the person who is leaving.
Disagree? feel free to let me know.
P.S. I wonder if we know more about the “big talent” leaving MS because the people are more open and discuss things like this on thier blogs. I wonder if the same happens at other companies of the same size?
I can’t believe this story on ESPN. First off, no kid should be cursing like that. (I’m not some prude or anything and I have been known to use curse words before myself) Swearing doesn’t make someone sound more intelligent or show a greator vocabulary either. Secondly the coach is right for correcting the kid.
I just can’t believe we now have a 5 second delay watching 12 and 13 year olds playing baseball. Why not just a delay on everything that is broadcast? What a sad statement on where our society is today. Kids are swearing on TV and we are now delaying broadcast in order to correct that. We should correct the behavior of the kids, not working around it.
I don’t know what has happened to Robert lately but since leaving Microsoft his whole attitude has changed. No longer is he promoting anything but living off of his ego and slamming any company that doesn’t agree with him. He says he has super secret double background information on new things coming from Apple, but all he knows is wrong, he bashes Google for things, and lately has decided to bass anything and everything Microsoft does. Remember it was Microsoft that made Robert who he was and yet he has now turned to bite the hand that fed him.
Robert defines a blog as something that has been around for 3 months and has daily updates that aren’t just flicker uploads and also has more then 500 words. Hardly any posts here match the 500 word criteria, and this blog hasn’t been around for 3 months, yet he linked to me here. Sorry Robert, but just because you wrote a book, there are over 198 on Amazon if you search for the word blog there… It doesn’t mean your definition is the correct or right one. I wonder how these other writers feel about their definitions of blogs and if they disagree with your view.
One of the frequent posters to Channel9 has written an excellent post on the current state of Linux on the Desktop. However, I have never had any of the same problems w/ wireless cards since Warty that he has. I wonder if I have just been lucky or things aren’t as bad as this author makes them out to be. I do agree that it seems Linux on the Desktop is currently at the state of Windows 95 was. Less and less config files to edit by hand and more and more you can use a GUI to make the changes in. Ubuntu and Kubuntu have made great strides to make configuration simple and easy.
The best part of this entry is where he argues against the whole rehtoric in regards to RMS and everything. The zealotry is not winning friends in the corporate world. In fact no business will use Linux to get rid of M$ and BillG, it will be driven by costs instead.
Grow up Linux community
Once again GOP Bloggers nails this on the head. I wonder where the world would be if we left the ALCU in charge of finding out information from prisoners? Do you think things would be better if we gave every terriorst a lawyer, respected all of thier rights whether they are under the Geneva Convention or give them there rights under the US Consitution?
Picture this: One goes to arrest a terrorist and reads them their Miranda Rights, let’s them make one phone call, and gives them free access to a lawyer. Now Mr. Terrorist, please tell us what you were planning and if you don’t we send you to trial where there is a good chance your lawyer can get you off on some crazy technicality.
Today Robert argues that resumes are old news and to just blog instead. I disagree, Robert went “off the grid” however I still don’t think he got off to the real world. Here in the Midwest, if I pointed some one to my blog as my resume, I wouldn’t get the job, it wouldn’t even get me an interview. A resume still is the key to get pass the gatekeeper. In fact, if you read the MS Job Blog they still mention resumes. Obviously they are still needed.
What type of job would you be looking for would only require a blog instead of a resume? I’m working as a consultant now, and one of our clients asked for copies of all our resumes, should I have pointed them here instead? I don’t think so.
Sorry Robert, I disagree with you on this…
Update: Working on trying to get my name changed so it shows better. Instead of being lied to on resumes you should use the search engine that is also known as a verb to look me up
