I don't trust facebook, they data harvest and sell to the highest bidder

my turn to complain

when my brothers ask me to get off the computer, I say ok and I get off, or I tell them I will in 30 min. and get off in 30 min.
when I ask them to get off the computer, they say OK, and do nothing, 10 min. later I ask, are you done? they say yes, and still don't get off
It normally takes about an hour of badgering them to get them off MY computer.
If wanted to stay on for another hour they should have said so when I first asked, so I could go do something else and come back in a hour,
but NO, they have to say ya, in a few min. so I wait in the same room, often doing nothing but waiting to get on MY computer.
I had 2 computers, so I put one in my room and moved one out into a living room, along with a desk that I built and a chair that I paid for.
Now the computer in my room needs a new graphics card, and god forbid I take this computer back in my room.

I hate my family, I hate sharing, and I can't wait until I move back out.

Now that I have a full time job, it shouldn't be long until I'm out of here, hopefully never to return

TV / The Little Prince - TV SERIES
« on: August 09, 2011, 01:24:06 am »
As much as I want to be excited they are making this book into a TV series, I am finding myself more and more upset about it.
The book was a masterpiece, almost 70 years old and still by far the best children's book ever written, because of it's existential overtones.

the one on the left CAN"T be celestia because she's missing her wings
and the one on the right's got no horn

These are clearly imposters

Programming is Science,
because math is science, and programming is applied math

Also, I found this article called Computational Fairy Tales,

http://computationaltales.blogspot.com/p/posts-by-topic.html

It goes over complex / not so complex Computer Science Concepts
but explains them in a fairy tale setting

really good read if you are into computer science at all,
still a good read if you are interested in interesting things to read

here's an example that teaches the If...Else

Quote
Ann had learned the value of IF-ELSE statements at a very early age. When she was only three years old, she was given VERY strict instructions from the castle's head chef NOT to randomly eat things in the kitchen. Specifically, she was told:


IF the food is on the 'finished' table

You can eat it.

ELSE

Do not eat it.


Of course, as any three year old is bound to do, Ann ignored these instructions. She would sneak into the kitchen and eat pieces of fruit off of the chef's prep table. Each time that the chef caught her, he would give her a lecture about obeying the IF statement. His lectures would last a full ten minutes and include at least one remark about "kids these days". Ann enjoyed listening to him describe the branching logic of the IF statement almost as much as she enjoyed sneaking fruit. In fact, some days she even made sure that she was caught so that she could listen to his rants.


Then one day, the chef was preparing eight-chili soup for dinner. As the name implies, the ingredients involved eight different types of chilies, including the ultra-hot Dragonia chili. Unfortunately for Ann, the Dragonia chili looked remarkably like a strawberry. She snuck two, and popped them in her mouth. The resulting pain was intense. Ann's eyes did not stop watering for three weeks. After that, Ann never disobeyed the chef's IF statement again.


As she grew older and more responsible, the chef added a chained IF statement to allow Ann access to a wider variety of food:


IF the food is on the 'finished' table

You can eat it

ELSE IF the food is on the 'raw ingredient' table AND you ask first AND the chef says "yes"

You can eat it

ELSE

Do not eat it.


Having learned her lesson from the chili pepper incident, Ann dutifully obeyed this new expanded rule. Food that was on the finished table was always okay to eat. Otherwise, if the food was on the 'raw ingredient' table, she knew that she would have to ask the chefs first. The logic was simple and covered the important cases.


Of course, those rules still did not stop Ann from trying to trick her younger brother into eating Dragonia chilies. She even succeeded -- twice.

Is programming considered Science?

if math is (which it is) than programming should also

nvm, i'm dumb, of course it is, thats why it's called computer sciences, ok, nevermind, you can disregard this post,
I already typed it all out, so I'm not going to erase it

I just would like to know if the online community is going to be broken up into servers (like WoW) or one large one or regional wide servers




Given that you can now play with your friends in WoW so long as you are friends in Battlenet (regardless of server) in BGs, Arenas, Raids, and Instances I can't imagine that you won't be allowed to do so in D3.

-Lego

SC2 is region locked, so I'm guessing Diablo 3 will be as well

lol ok Yoda, what? worried I might turn to the dark side?

The government is like the Empire / dark side,  The protestors are like the Rebel alliance
when the rebels fought the empire did they not do it out of hate / anger?
yes they blew up the governmental space station (death star) which would be the equivalent of us nuking D.C
which is a bit extreme.  So we're not as extreme as the rebel alliance in star wars, and yet their new world order was not dark or evil, they didn't end up with suffering even though they used more extremist tactics than we would ever.


A random anon ranting on the subject.  (not starwars)

It has become very clear that our government has no interest in the well being of its citizens

it is big business that commands the attention of our leaders

this must be changed

But to do this we must all take part in whatever way we can

the banks, lobbyists, wall-street thugs, and Rupert Murdochs of the world will not give up

so we cannot either.

the debt ceiling debate came to an end with cuts to the middle-class, the Poor, the Elderly and the Sick.

at the same time, multi-billion dollar corporations continue to get tax breaks by sending our jobs overseas

along with those atrocities we are still in danger of a crushing recession

which undoubtedly will be felt only by you and i.

 

and while this debate raged on for us all to see, there was yet another hidden agenda,

that has been supressed. they are calling it the Super Congress

this is just another way to take us, the citizens out of the picture

so we have less choice where we already have ALMOST NONE.

 

This is another stone in the wall between you and your freedom.

How much Longer can we allow this to occur while we sit back passively, go shopping and watch television

if we do not stand up and take back our country from the corporations and the banks now

they will only continue to create more laws without our knowledge, the same way they did with

the USA PATRIOT ACT.

The main goal of this message is to excite, incite you to look, listen, think and disobey

 

when a US company like General Electric can make 14.2 billion dollars and pay zero taxes

while the supreme court is allowed to make laws saying corporations have the same rights as citizens

and can now legally buy the elected officials of their choice.

This is CLEARLY a problem that needs to be addressed

 on September 17 accross the country we will be heard
