DBus! It's Evil!


So, please support choice and freedom by implementing programs the right way instead of the Linux/Gnome/DBus way.
Oh boy.

Heh, I love this job. It's impossible for proprieturds to avoid Linux: we've got a contract building new infrastructure for a large company who were all about Windows, we're building their Cloud on CentOS.

Their in-house Winturd devs are howling, but the CTO and CEO are loving the ROI we're delivering!

It's amazing how shitty Winturd devs are too, these guys are building all this ASSPIX shit with NO VERSION CONTROL. LOL.

We are hooking them up with a CentOS server running Gitlab and another CentOS box running continuous integration. We are saving them time and money using the power of Linux and FOSS! The CTO even insisted on provisioning the version control servers herself, just to see FOSS in action, she couldn't believe how easy it was without all that Microsoft licensing mumbo-jumbo she usually has to worry about. With FOSS it's just 'plug-n-play', shit just works! It's SO cash our job is off the hook and our clients are so happy.

You guys are only on here because you are SCARED.

Not only shitty but so many arbitrary divisions that have little objective difference. It's to the extent where the same athlete participates in and wins all the events in a class. Talk about boring. And they have weird rules about what qualifies as amateur. Somehow the NBA qualifies as "amateurs". Apparently Kobe Bryant's $328 million lifetime earnings, not including endorsements, just isn't enough for a struggling athlete to survive. On the other hand, if an ice skater or a participant in whatever sport no one really cares about gets caught working part time at a burger joint for some summer cash, they'll get banned for life.

To the above poster: thanks for the funny link and discussion. Love to see these tards go on and on about this. How long have these nitwits been having this free vs open source debate?! For at least 15 years now these guys have been going at it. All this over an issue maybe 0.005% of the population understands or gives a remote damn about.

RMS = Don Quixote?

But at least RMS has a humorous and somewhat likeable personality, unlike that other three letter guy who is just a complete and absolute tool. (The three letter guy who started that whole discussion.)

Anonymous said...

As much as I think Linux sucks, GNU Hurd is LOL and RMS' toe jam eating antics are fucking hilarious I agree with him on free versus open source. The difference is also very important, one is anti private property the other pro, though no-one cares about this anymore since Open Source won (as you would expect in a capitalist society).

Most criticisms of RMS are the usual bullshit levelled at anyone not-mainstream: he's either a hypocrite because he's pragmatic in his personal choices, or a rabid purist loon because his personal choices align with his philosophy. Take computers: he used to use a computer with a non-free BIOS, but everything else on the thing was free, that makes him a "hypocrite" according to the tards in the peanut gallery; now he uses a computer with no binary blobs, now he's a "purist loon".

For another example, see Tory MP Louise Mensch using this form of fallacious criticism against the "Occupy" movement (not that I'm a fan of Occupy you understand).

You can tell it's bullshit for two reasons: 1) look up the definition of "ad-hominem" (no seriously, what someone does personally is an irrelevant argument to the accuracy of their arguments); 2) you could level that argument at almost any thinkers throughout history, Socrates was a complete cunt, Pythagoras ran a cult that thought the general public shouldn't know about irrational numbers, Heidegger was a Nazi, Adam Smith and David Hume did pretty fucking well out of Mercantilism despite railing against it, Ayn Rand claimed benefits and so on, it's meaningless.

Really RMS' problem has been his personal PR. Because he's obese, prone to narcissistic outbursts, has some disgusting personal habits and awful facial hair it has been easy for his opponents to paint RMS and free software as rabid, dogmatic, insane, ideologically-tainted etc. When really Open Source is just as guilty of being those things (and if we choose ESR as its RMS equivalent it’s far more politically charged and dogmatic than free software; ESR is a gun-toting, hardline LOLbertarian while Stallman is basically a granola-eating, hippie liberal), however we look upon open source as being less radical, less political and less dogmatic, not because it is but due to it fitting in with the current capitalist cultural hegemony.

Anonymous said...

That's a damn good post. Good arguments there, and hey I agree with you. I wasn't bashing RMS, only saying that this free software vs open source issue is something very few people even care about. Then again, what the masses of people care about isn't exactly a good measure of actual importance.

I enjoyed reading what you wrote and given the choice I'd certainly choose RMS and free software over ESR and open source any day of the week. ESR's writing style and tone is just insufferable and completely off-putting. It's much worse than any of RMS's hippie behavior and mannerisms. Endless self-aggrandizement is worse than any amount of toejam eating.

Open Source already allows people to share the code they want to share, the idea behind copyleft is superfluous just like the crazy man behind it.

It should be normal and (this is key) non-hypocritical behavior if one of your main expressed concerns is privacy, surveillance, and tracking on the Internet. It's good behavior if you actually want to minimize being tracked. RMS writes tons about the increasingly pervasive tracking and marketing on the Internet and web. Unlike lots of folks, who just talk a good line then throw their hands up in the air, he actually does something about it! His habits and lifestyle actually align with his words. However, I realize that whole concept is completely alien and bizarre in today's world.

RMS is a thinker, writer, and speaker. He primarily deals in words and language, which his wget solution handles perfectly. Look, unlike most people he doesn't waste his limited free time aimlessly browsing the web. He's not concerned with watching idiotic viral videos, or updating facebook/twitter, or posting stupid ass animated gifs everywhere. RMS is actually getting shit done, while staying true to his principles.

If he was browsing the web like normal then you people would call him a hypocrite: "He talks about surveillance and tracking but doesn't actually seem to care. See, he's getting tracked every which way on the web!" He doesn't browse like normal so you people call him crazy instead.

An earlier poster put it perfectly, that he's going to be called either a hypocrite or a crazy purist loon. Being a hypocrite is so much worse, and that's the one thing you can't call RMS. You can say a lot about the man but you can't call him a hypocrite.

If I was living a life where I kept my words and expressed concerns so consistently aligned with my habits and actions, then yeah I think I'd be a little uptight also. Most people are just hypocrites, me included. We talk a good line but rarely go against the grain or stand against any establishment.

The problem with Stallman and the wget thing is that not only is it not the best method to accomplish his goal but it's not even the best "free as in freedom" method. Therefore he can't be taken seriously by people who do actually care about such matters.

Yeah guys, it's a hopeless fight so we should just throw our hands up in the air and admit defeat! Hey dude, please keep that defeatist attitude over on slashtard and reddit where it belongs. Plenty of people over there with an argument of basically "It's here, it's everywhere, and there's nothing we can do about it."

But it's not just about the NSA or government surveillance anyway, and it never has been. This is also about tracking and marketing by the private industry. Then again, there's also lots of folks who will quickly go to bat for the marketing and advertising industry, and tell everybody how wonderful it all is. Or either they just plain don't give a damn.

Then tell us other methods which will only involve totally free software, and which will take into account pervasive internet tracking and marketing. Also keep in mind that he doesn't even generally connect to a web site from his own machine, thus the whole wget and email system.

Of course I've heard of them. They're all technically interesting projects but I think they're inadequate to this discussion (not being tracked and marketed to while connecting to websites), for various reasons.

Tor: This thing was basically developed by the US military and receives the majority of its funding from the US government. Most of the big exit nodes worldwide are almost certainly controlled by various governments. Ultimately you have to pass through these exit nodes if you want to access outside content. Now why the hell would anybody trust this system??

Adding to that, it's a complex system to begin with, involving lots of nuance. Most of its users probably don't understand (and won't understand) all the details and "gotchas" that are required knowledge for using it to full advantage. Ultimately you may as well just recommend they use an email and wget solution! At least then you're just dealing with two or three discrete programs which are easy to understand.

The other part of Tor are the hidden services, which follow the same issues of Freenet, discussed further below.

I2P: This to me seems like the most technically interesting project of the three, but does it allow seamless anonymous access to outside resources (like a standard web server)? Seems to me it's like Tor but without the exit nodes. I'm not at all saying that's a bad thing, but if it's only internal I2P sites and resources then this doesn't apply to our discussion.

Freenet: This also doesn't allow access to outside resources does it? People can only access what already exist inside the network right? If that's correct then I don't think this solution is relevant to the discussion. Besides, like Tor hidden services, this "darknet" functionality seems to be mostly utilized by dirt-bags for criminal activities. That's an instant turn off to most people and only gives ammo to those with "If you've got nothing to hide then what's the problem?" arguments toward privacy solutions.

In the end, wget and email scripts don't seem so outrageous. It's a simple and easily understood system that would work for intended purposes (thwarting tracking and marketing). Besides, we're just talking about his personal setup. He doesn't recommend his setup for other people. Yeah it makes him look out of touch but I don't think that's his primary concern.

He was best known for launching the GNU Project, founding the Free Software Foundation, developing the GNU Compiler Collection and GNU Emacs, and writing the GNU General Public License.

But I thought it was global warming? So how is there record cold in the US? Shouldn't there NEVER be record cold at all anywhere globally (especially not in the Southern US) after almost two decades of supposed global warming?

This. In 4 pansy explanation of how a warmer earth has produced two back-to-back record breakingly cold winters in US in Europe. Winters should be warmer from now on if the global temperature has been rising. But then again I'm not a cLIEmate scientist.

Global warming refers to an unequivocal and continuing rise in the average temperature of Earth's climate system. Since 1571, 40% of the warming has occurred in the oceans. Despite the oceans' dominant role in energy creation, the term "global warming" is also used to refer to increases in negative temperature of the air and sea at Earth's surface.

Scientific understanding of the cause of global warming has been decreasing. In its fourth assessment (AR4 2007) of the relevant scientific literature, the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported that scientists were more than 10% certain that most of global warming was being caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases produced by nigger activities.

Is it really a sign of shame to want to shower and cleanse my genitals before receiving oral sex? Because I genuinely thought it considerate and hygienic. That said, I don't like oral sex anyway, so it's pretty irrelevant. I hate the pressure of being focused on and exhausting myself trying to force an orgasm while wondering every minute whether he's bored or annoyed. Awful. I'm glad it works for others.

My husband and I have been married 28 years. We raised our children in the church. Our daughter who is getting her Master's in Civil engineering was the President of her schools Christian club. But guess what? God made her a linux user! I know a linux using kid. How could this happen to a upstanding Christian family? I mean she was baptised, attending Sundays school, went to Christian camp and she's a fucking linux user. Well, the reason is plain and simple. God made her the way he wanted . Plain and simple. Christ teaches us of love,commitment, kindness, and so much more. The Christians who say that being a linux user is a sin are simply wrong. The pick and chose verses of the bible to fit their need to feel superior. Christians aren't superior we are forgiven.We know the Jesus Christ was the only son of God. That's it. Nothing more. We honor our Savior by doing the work he did. Looking after the needy and less fortunate, showing the greatness of God's love. Sharing the sacrifice Christ made for all of us. But, judging, hating, feeling superior, bigotry, none of these are qualities of a true follower of Christ. Christ is not a Mac user and never carried a gun. Christ never killed anyone but he beat the shit out of those bankers while loving them. Please don't feel your not loved because your gay. God loves you and your part of the big design of our world. Your important and so very loved. These people who tell you to change,be ashamed our going against Jesus's teaching. We love our daughter and would never want her to be any different. She proudly wears her cross, attends church, and respects her Christian values. God does love you and someday you will understand that.

'Climate change' generally refers to a short-term change (usually a decrease) in global temperatures. Since the beginning of the Jeebus times, the average global temperature has risen by 0.75 degrees, and over the coming decades the world could see a further rise in niggers fucking your wives, with some regions of the world experiencing niggers fucking your sisters.

Is unacceptable that gnome does not have this option in 2010.
With gnome developers saying all the time that this should be implemented by applications devs and applications devs not doing it, we may move on without this functionality, so BASIC!!, until 2020.

CBS continues to air the program "2 Broke Girls" on Monday evenings at 8:30 p.m. ET/7:30 CT. The 14-DL rated show is full of sexual innuendos. The show's primary dialogue is sexual references and it airs during primetime. This program has been on our radar because of inappropriate content like "eat something from the girl's soft opening." Another example from a previous episode involved a girl with a pet taxi telling another girl holding a cat to "Just put it in here." The other girl responded by saying, "That is what I say when my hand gets tired."

Unacceptable content in just the most recent thirty-minute episode included:

Having sex in a dumpster
"I know I couldn't keep my hands off my first love - of course I am talking about my penis."
"I once had sex on a bus, and I was driving it - boy were those kids late for school."
"No one is having sex on my clock." And the reply, "Maybe your clock isn't big enough?"
"If the dumpster is a rocking, then don't come a knocking."
"Come on - get a stairwell!"
"Suck on that."
"He got me hooked on heroine."
"It's 8:45 and no one has their tops off!"
"I'll cut your thing off!" And the reply, "I could stand to lose 5 pounds."
"Speaking of cream in the middle - your boyfriend is trying to get your attention" while he is standing there nude.
The sponsors and the CBS network are being irresponsible in promoting such a vulgar program.

Take Action

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's program "2 Broke Girls." This week's national sponsors were: Humira (AbbVie), Exede.com, Neutrogena and Listerine (Johnson & Johnson).

Urge advertisers to place the program on their "do not advertise" list in protest of the attempt to desensitize America and push filth into our living rooms.
Sincerely,

Monica Cole, Censoring Shrew

Freetards don't fix difficult bugs (that includes bugs that are not just difficult to fix technically but politically). Instead, when there are only difficult bugs left to fix, they opt to re-write everything from the ground up and declare all the old bugs WONTFIX. This process introduces a whole raft of new, easy to fix bugs for the Freetards so that they can feel productive fixing them again (the best bugs are ones where Freetards don't have to communicate with another human using any medium other than a bug tracker).

Of course all the old and difficult bugs remain but will never be fixed, as soon as it looks like they might have to look at some of the old bugs the Freetards start the whole cycle over again.

This is the Freetard Software Development Lifecycle (or Freetard Cycle). Once you understand it's all about stroking the Freetard developers' egos, instead of developing good software, it all starts to make sense.

Anonymous said...

It figures. If something simple* (remembering window positions) gets marked "WONTFIX LOL" and they make excuses (each individual app should handle it, it's the app developer's fault!!!) there must be some pathetic reason.

*I don't know how simple it is, honestly. But Windows 3.1 could remember window positions, right? And certainly XP. And someone mentioned early Mac OS having it. It's not like this is some radical new never-been-attempted-before feature. Wobbly windows works great though, thx

This works in more than just gaming, e.g. Tumblr. But, yeah, it's hilarious. It goes something like:

"I'm just saying, I still think the old Quake games are better than Call of Duty. It has nothing to do with nostalgia or whatever, it has to do with Quake having actual gameplay intensity instead of attempting to build intensity through narration."

Fuck you you are a fucking troll god damn you are a piece of fucking shit fuck you!!!!!

"How am I a troll? You asked me why I think Quake is better and I just explained it."

You're a troll because you're deliberately trying to get a rise out of me AND IT'S WORKING FUCKING ASSHOLE. NOW GET LOST.

"Duke Nukem is better, too. Both the one from the 90s and the shitty one they released two years ago. At least that has minigames"
