Still lurking Krunch, lotsa good folks around this community. Is good to see you're nixing it up as ever. smile

Good software gawds, windows 10 setup to spy and log, worse than win8-8.1 ?! Way things are going peeps are going to have to submit a urine sample to M$ to use their pc's.

See this kinda thing and the saying leopard + changing spots immediately jumps to mind. Irony with Micro$oft imo, how does someone make 90 billion dollars a year by continuously coming out with a chittyer n chittyer product(s) ? big_smile

Goes against basic logic, principles of bizness etc but there you have it.

Another observation about this stuff:

Attitude matters ... By this, I mean be bold, even if it's mostly a bluff. lol People who exude confidence are almost surely bound to get further than those with the whipped dawg syndrome. So when you do get those face 2 face's, pysche yeself Krunch (and/or others), they aren't giving you a job dude ... You're allowing them to employ you fellow nixer.

End of dy, don't take it too hard or serious ... Apply your swag me friend, you/we know we're worth A LOT.

Vll! smile

^LMFAO lol

TY ... every now and then have to make da babble comprehensible. Am thinking about entering into the entertainment industry. Have a golden idea for an epic new show, wait for it ... wait for it ... "laundromat" ! tongue

Really a simple matter of business and/or ever present reality. Often times quantity means compromise in quality if it's to be kept cost effective. Xyz media outlet has to generate massive amounts of media to supply 400+ channels (of nothing), basic business says they have to produce enough to meet demand. It doesn't have to be good, just has to be good enough to meet demand. Again ... quality tends to be more costly, cost tends to lower profits thusly isn't a desirable thing from a providers standpoint.

In-house production streams or low cost sourcing channels (as cheaply as possible) producing enough quantity to meet requirements, nothing more, nothing less. = Yeah don't get hopes up that run-of-mill is going to be epic quality. Is kinda funny to see the end result. Introducing the next smash series, "NYC postal worker" an enthralling saga ... They don't just deliver the mail, they deliver it snow, rain or shine! big_smile

Can't speak for anyone else but I feel a decided downward pressure on my IQ when watching television anymore. Commend Krunch for cutting the cord and think folks are nuts in the 1st world for not just networking their TV's which pretty much everything produced now is going to be capable of. Why pay for net and 500 channels (of nothing anyway), shrugs.

Can't really do this any justice so basically just amounts to babble bytching. DAMMIT lol

#11 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Heads Up for Those Running Bleeding Edge Distros » 2015-05-21 09:39:19

Thanks for the heads up Krunchmeister. smile

Personally gotten to the point where having latest kernel is more pita than benefit anyway. Unless there's some actual valid reason have come to consider my natural tendencies towards laziness to have a much higher priority than a higher version #.

That'll teach all ya dam version chasers ! big_smile Well at least they're breaking trail for the rest of the gnu/nixers of the world and guess I should be quasi grateful to these brave souls. TY for taking lumps, so I don't have to. lol

Vll! smile

^LMFAO ... good catch Ohnonot ... LMFAOsomemore. lol

Fricken spammers, no lengths to which they shall not go or sink to link. lol Those weren't there originally, remember Schwim mentioning setting a limit on time someone is able to edit posts to prevent this spam tactic.

Apparently he's seen spammers do what I'm thinking of now as the ole switcheroo, post something ... wait awhile, circle back and try to slip in the spam payload. Arghhhh, this fricker coupled it with a foreign language to try and add some confusion to the mix ! How do ya say DAM U in errr ... German ?

Vll! smile

#13 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Reductionist Recruiting: A Short History of Why You Can't Get Hired » 2015-05-20 08:02:32

Four plies ? Like wiping w a cloud. What are your guys arses made outta gold or what ? lol

Clearly messing round, hope you find something Krunch sounds like a frustrating situation. Not much I can do, offer best wishes in one hand and chit in the other, see which fills up 1st. Arghhhh ... when comes to employment gaps think it's a good time to lie and/or embellish am in most circumstances a big fan of honesty but not in every context.

Imo that includes a job application, people need income to live, so if a good person bends the truth a bit to secure said income, doesn't mean they aren't still totally a good person. Guess depends on which exact field ( meaning if your skills are still relevant and qual's in that field haven't radically changed) and the employer overall. Still worth a shot if you've been playing by the rules and not getting any results.

Oops ... already 140+ apps out, arghhhh. I have a real talent for overlooking the obvious lately. How many more prospective employers in that field are available ? Also wondering if you'd share which field this relates to.

#14 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Completely Off Topic Chat » 2015-05-18 16:17:36

^ Noticed you'd been around and was kinda hoping you'd sound off on the babble I'd posted Geezer.

Do think mass psychology and assoc subjects are pretty interesting stuff. Way it's been applied through-out history to present dy. Lotsa weirdness though seems like in a digital age it's a whole new ballgame in ways. Kinda shrunk the world perhaps and ramped things up in some odd ways. Agree it's interesting to see how it's progressed from old programming to how it is nowadays.

Ah well ... peeps get to choose what they feed their heads no matter what and plenty of good info avail. Plus on the upside at least Amer Idol is on the ropes. Dang it think it's got another season, shrugs and they'll just come up with something else as retarded for da masses. Would be nice if the media Corps would raise the bar and cut out all the crapness headgames. Not holding breath n don't like the odds of that ever happening.

All of this is up to the fates me thinks, way it's meant to be. Will stop offtopic'ing Krunch's thread.

VLL! smile

#16 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Which TV series do you watch/like/don't like.... » 2015-05-18 07:39:18

Good news 2 report, heard an infobit not too long ago that American Idol is getting cancelled. YES ! SCORE ! :D

Guess the american population will have to find something else retarded and frivolous to idolize. Sighs ... judging from past/present, assuming it won't take long for something else craptastic and IQ shrinking to be produced to fill the void. Arghhh !

Krunch ty fellow nixer. Is friggin disturbing in my experience and observations of how great an influence mass media has on brain screwing people, changing people's beliefs and perceptions. Really a tad more imo than merely disturbing, pretty much Orwellian at this point.

Television and it's "programming" have become everybody's constant companion from cradle to grave. Sheesh it's kinda obscene if ya stop and think about it. Likely the avg person spends MUCH more time cuddled up with a television screen or one of their many form factored relatives than they do with their most beloved loved ones or doing whatever it is they're most passionate about.

In a time when information is more easily accessible than ever before. People are intellectually devolving ? Folks at least in my lifespan ( = 4 decades) on avg have never been exactly the stuff geniuses are made of but I swear folks were nowhere near as completely retarded as they've become from mid70's-2015. I'm attributing much of this to mass media consumption.

Vll! :)


Just 4 record, am not claiming holier than thou ( whoever thou may be) know I'm retarded but at least am aware of it. Mind numbing how oblivious folks seem to be to fundamental realities or the big picture  and what's going on in the world. Doesn't make any dam sense w information everywhere peeps should not be clueless asstards to the degree they appear to me to be ! Arghhhh.

#17 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Lex Doctor » 2015-05-18 07:15:40

Another +1 for HOAS ...

Sometimes guess Nix just isn't a practical solution though think open source has amazing potential overall. Not exactly a turn-key or 1, 2, 3 drop in for every exact circumstance obviously. Still sounds like you laid a foundation for the guy Inodoro Pereyra. Since his daughter is already liking gnu/nix you've done your good deed no matter what.

Vll! smile

#18 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » 50 Most Common Interview Questions » 2015-05-12 13:08:14

^ lol LMFAO lol

@Hinto Hey man ... how else are people supposed to keep up with whatever the latest kardashian that got hatched is doing ?!

Hmmmm ... brings to mind another relevant interview question folks should be asking ( anyone who takes calls or texts during the course of a job interview.)

Question #52:

Your parents didn't beat you enough as a child ... did they ? tongue

#19 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » 50 Most Common Interview Questions » 2015-05-12 09:21:54

Paging Dr. Head_on_a_Stick, paging doctor Head_on_a_Stick. This would also no doubt draw some (blank looks). lol

Kinda sorry to hear it was too stressful an occupation HOAS. At least here in the states the medical field is in DESPERATE need of more intelligently realistic people. Much of what passes for treatments is still practically on friggin par with blood letting me thinks.

Toxic big Pharma goodness that not only doesn't treat the underlying condition. Tons of them are known to cause serious health problems and horrendous side effects themselves ... arghhhh ! Blahblah ...

OT: Think a good job interview question should be what is your username on good gnu/Nix forums ?

Ans #1: I don't have one, what's gnu/Linux ? Errrrr ... NEXT !!!!
Ans #2: It's Head_on_a_stick. You're hired, congrats. big_smile


#20 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » 50 Most Common Interview Questions » 2015-05-12 05:59:17

For several of da above posts (blank look.) smile

Dr. Head_On_A_Stick ?! That must draw some (blank looks) from patients. Errrrr ... messing round obviously. tongue

#21 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Distro-hoppers Anonymous » 2015-05-10 13:24:37

It had an active key-logger on it sending all my forum posts & passwords straight back to Redmond HQ so I'm probably better off without it anyway.

    You're joking about the key logger, right?

Unfortunately not -- it's all declared in the "Terms & Conditions" quite clearly -- for those who bother to read them...

Yowza ... friggin m$ seems to come out with some of the most ominous terms incorporated into user agreements fellows. That's just flat out bizarre why they'd feel the need to do any such thing as described there. Comes w an active key-logger ? Errrr wtf !?!

Remember recently finding a freeware program put out by a wholly owned sub-sid of M$ enduser agreement that came with said along the lines of we're not responsible for any damages to hardware, even if we knew about the possibility of xyz software causing damages beforehand and just didn't bother telling anyone.

Again ... that caused biz to have another M$ related wtf moment. Have used plenty freeware over the years, occasionally even bothered to read whichever piece(s) of software EUA = end-user-agreement(s) and had never seen anything phrased out that way. M$ apparently comes out with some doozie clauses for sure.

End babble with obviously heel yeah you're better off w/o HOAS. smile

Stupid afterthought babble ...

To be fair it's pretty standard for much stuff to come with a we're not responsible or use @ own risk etc blahblahblah but why go so far as to say not responsible for damage even if we knew said damage was poss/likely beforehand ? FRIGGIN OUTRIGHT BIZARRE M$ishness, arghhhhh.
