Haha! The last one is awesome. smiley

But seriously, Home Alone and The Little Mermaid? I thought I saw both of those right around the time they came out, but I'm not in my 30s.

Are you sure about that?

Macaulay Culkin - Born Macaulay Carson Culkin (August 26, 1980)

So if he's in his 30s, you gotta be close too.

So with such a contradiction, isn't that opening themselves up for lawsuits?
 huh

Not really, in lawyer speak it says they promise not to, but reserve the right to. At least that's my interpretation of it. I'll not be touching that with a 438" pole.
3078  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: multiple align inside the same line on: May 06, 2011, 06:39:09 AM
cool tip.

Not so much. It only works for two words, and kinda works for three (second word gets middle aligned). So this is one of the niche exploits which look cool, but are not very useful.

Most cool, gotta jot that one down. But now that you mention it (reminded me of something), is there a way to stop/modify that behavior?

I used to frequently use full justify because I like the look of the evenly blocked text. But in seems lately that it always wants to smear the last short line of a paragraph across the whole page (much like your tip above). It never did that before...and it's really annoying. The last line if only a few words should stay left aligned(ish) as it's a much cleaner look, and is what Word used to do (for the most part) by default.

I hope they'll save it, if only because it was starting to get a bit better at times. And because I fear what sort of crappy thing they'll replace it with.

I'll give you that one hands down. SciFi Friday used to be mandatory on our household. Right up until they ruined it with (2 hours of) wrestling. What moron decided that qualified as Science Fiction?!?

On Star Gate in general, it seems like they're really just been spit-balling in the hopes of reproducing the chemistry of the original series. But it's hard to clone Jack O'Neil. He really made the show work, at least for me (McGuiver fan).

I think they're just trying to get the jump on the Orwellian dark horse "Big Brother" position. First the souls of the user-base are collected, then the get delivered to the dark overlords for entertainment & consumption.

This is why they thrive on our hatred...

Hmm, I'm now beginning to wonder if any password stored service is safe. This story is going to become increasingly common I suspect. Not good.

My guess would be no ... Unless you're using a copy of f0dder's fskrit from an online file storage.
3082  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: After PSN. Who's next? on: May 05, 2011, 11:41:28 AM
Check this out concerning brute force cracking of passwords. Was posted just recently somewhere.

Very cool indeed, thanks for sharing.

It probably has some type of automated maintenance schedule, that normally runs (or would run) at night. So if the machine is off...and it can't run or scedule...it will have to catchup later. Like while you're trying to use the thing.

If you can figure out what the schedule is and leave it running that night so it can get itself out of the way. You'll probably have much less aggravation.

otherwise yes i think we might see some infinite posters

Me want clown badge too.
3085  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Five Reasons Why People Hate Apple on: May 04, 2011, 12:02:32 PM
Doing the rounds on Digg today... (see attachment in previous post)

Actually, come to think of it, that's a serious issue.

Given Apple's behavior, you could never trust them in any secure environment.

O_o ...Because they're tracking them by their foot prints now too..?
3086  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Congratz to the US Military Forces! on: May 04, 2011, 11:54:02 AM
(Of course, I'd think he'd want a more violent last stand, i.e. a true sacrifice to martyr himself, but that might have had the opposite effect...)

Heroes tend to go out in a blaze-of-glory, and/or sometime survive. For a martyr, on the other hand, survival is a complication. As the object is/was/and always will be, to end up dead in an emotionally provocative fashion. OBL's role was to be played (to his audience) as that of a victimized holy man. As opposed to being seen (machine-guns-A-blazing) as a mad-dog killer.

Under the circumstances I'd of been happy with just the first paragraph ... But I guess it is hard to just tap the ball... smiley
3088  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Apple Patent Reveals Extensive Stalking Plans on: May 03, 2011, 06:05:06 PM
Everyone here already has a vast vocabulary of profanities, obscenities, curse and swear words, so you already know my opinion on the topic.

 Sad But you do it so well...  Sad

I'm really trying to be more positive and avoid ranting. I'd rather rave about great products and services than scream about bad ones and evil companies. There's just nothing very good to say about Apple. Sad

Understood, but you had mentioned in another thread that you were curious about how much of the iTracking story was actually true/hype. So I was hoping to get your take on how well the patent story/angle held water (e.g. I know shit about patents).

The highlight of your rants has always been (for me anyway) your extremely in-depth understanding of the architecture & detail provided, the whit is always good, and screaming fuck of course is optional. Wink

In 20 years, we better have a holodeck that runs 24/7. When that day comes, I'm seriously checking out of this reality for good.

Sign me up, Scotty...

O_o ...So this is a prepackaged downloadable local searchable library of code samples? Or am I missing something? Either was it looks handy as hell.

It lists things so you can search, then download. I don't think it downloads them all to start, but you can do that if you want.
Ah! Okay... It's a ("Web App") Cloud Thing. Might be handy if I can remember to use it next time I get stuck (hehe).

Thanks

damn, we need a bit of good news around here Angry

Sorry, I thought it was good news... *Shrug* ...For those of us what don't have any iLife. cheesy
3093  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The internet in 1990 -- holy smokes! on: May 03, 2011, 03:00:59 PM
if the gazooba-net isn't being piped directly into my brain in 20 years from now i'll be very disappointed.

And I'll be...relieved. Grin



You worried you'll click on the wrong thing and end up with a dirty mind?

Just ran across this and thought it might interest some folks.

Because now you get to chase down an intermittent outage issue caused by a renegade protocol.

Hey! I resemble that~! smiley

I knew I was going to get nailed for that, but I just couldn't thing of a applicable synonym at that time of night.

Heh, heh - that comment about networking resonates - my mum's friend, who is 71, went to buy a printer but was turned off because it was wireless and she doesn't have wireless... Doh! I've been trying to get her to replace her ancient HP inkjet for YEARS because troubleshooting its issues with OSX have been driving me crazy... Sigh  Sad

She didn't belive that you can still just use USB (which is required for setting up the WiFi) with the "WiFi" printer? Load the printer with sandpaper and then print a phonebook ... The issue should then solve itself... Wink

I just came across this post: http://www.thebestpageint...rse.net/c.cgi?u=macs_cant

doing a totally unrelated search but thought it *might* resonate here. NB language NSFW or children.

hehe
3097  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Nifty Gmail feature on: May 03, 2011, 11:35:09 AM
Thunderbird has similar heuristics.

Can be done with a client-side javascript check btw, so doesn't necessarily mean "google reads your emails" (though of course they do datamine heavily).

It'd be nice if they picked up the pace a little, I've been waiting on a 3MB attachment I sent myself for an hour now.
3098  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The internet in 1990 -- holy smokes! on: May 03, 2011, 11:30:20 AM
Wait-a-minute, 1990 was 20 years ago?!? Damnit!

Now I feel old...

You seem like a good guy, and I like Ya, but...

So once the guilt has been established by whomever, anyone can carry out the sentence?

There's no whomever involved here. Were talking about a first person style-  I Did It - video confession. There was no remorse or appology. He showed great pride in his handywork. That's about as guilty as you can get.

What would you expect then to have for a trial defense? Say he was just kidding about the video?

I'm with mrainey, I'd have shot him and gone to lunch.
