      Can we re-animate Steve Jobs? Tim Cook is a bean counter and will run Apple into irrrelevance. Why can't their Board see this?

        I would almost dare to say all even # Windows releases suck and most odd ones are decent. XP, 7, 8.1 were OK. Vista, 8, and 10 sucked ass royally.

        Maybe megalomaniac Jobs hired exactly who he wanted: a stunted mechanic like Cook that would never actually supersede his own accomplishments, thus protecting Jobs' place in BS tech lore. Dude seemed self-obsessed enough that he'd make sure his children were buried with him. Well, not his actual children, because he didn't seem to care about them nearly as much.

      One day, EU will mandate switchers because LPS are inefficient. California, under the wing of a political family scion, will follow.

        Scratch that; EU in 10 years make it mandatory to have a solar panel per household electrical equipment piece - then there is going to be no way around 'switching'.

        If you want inefficiency visit the Brussels and Straatsburg. They still cannot decide on one location so they switch between these two. Also this is not about politics but idiocy regarding logistics and designing smooth processes. But no, the EU likes wasting resources while telling EU-citizens to pay their taxes. Rant over...

        IEMW is people who have extensive experience with IEMs. All with different preferences with some overlap. This is necessary because random MOTs want me to review their wares. I am too busy, so I tell them to put up (send to these guys) or shut up.

        When you are doing deep insertion everyday it starts to mess with your head. You keep telling yourself that it satisfies your emotional needs, but after a while you realise that you are living a lie and that you actually need a little bit of romance in your life too.

        When I see subjective reviews include X destroys Y or some variant, my internal bullshit meter pegs. Reviewer is unable to distinguish between personal preferences and comparison attributes, let alone understand that their personal preferences probably don't extrapolate to the universe.

        "String-Select?" With, I suppose, the caps? Weird. I'd say it was Microsoftish, except I suspect many languages use this kind of terminology these days.

        One of my jobs for tonight: discover how to search for text in PDFs. An early google tells me there is something called pdfgrep.

        Fire hit Oak Park, where I thought it would hit based on my use of the Force. Actually it was more the direction wind and my knowledge of the local hills from all that hiking. Was why I didn't want to leave and didn't believe the LA County semi-fake "mandatory" evacuation.
