Really fuckin’ brilliant, ain’t it?

Keiko/Judy is simultaneously pubescent and agressively womanly , her shapely yet slender legs spilling out of a tiny tartan schoolgirl kilt, to vanish, mid calf, into shoved-down, bunched up cotton kneesocks of an unusually heavy knit. Cayce’s cool-module, wherever it resides, has always proven remarkably good at registering the salient parameters of sexual fetishes she’s never encountered before, and doesn’t in the least respond to. She just knows that these Big Sox are one of those, and probably culture specific. There will be a magazine for Japanese guys into big socks, she’s sure of it. The big socks go into retro faux-Converse canvas, but with platform sole to balance the very sizable bulk of sock-crunch around the ankles, giving Keiko/Judy a knees-down look recalling a baby Clydesdale. [...]

She [Cayce] knows too much about the processes responsible for the way product is positioned, in the world, and sometimes she finds herself doubting that there is much else going on. But this is a mood, she tells herself, a bad one in its low-key way, dealt by soul-delay. Somewhere that lagging part of her is being wound in, and her job here is simply to walk, to be in London and let her body know that she is here.

Here’s another obvious requirement for good conversation: You gotta spik good if you wanna converse fust-class. Ever tried to communicate with your local computer genius? Sure he’s bright and pays attention when you talk, but the hodge-podge of acronyms and verbified nouns the he calls English might as well be Hungarian [...]. You thank him for his brilliant solution and resume baninging on your computer with your coffee cup.

Igen, jól sejted. Ez pontosan az, amire gondolsz. Szemantikai vakvágányon futunk, már csak a logikai vészfék állíthat meg.

De nem fog.

Mert igazából nem is szeretnénk..

A sátánizmus elvetette sötét magvait számítógépünkbe. A fehér többé már nem fehér, a fekete többé már nem fekete. A sötétség a világosság leple alatt támad. E.g.: A MacMini ugyanis fehér, míg a HPQ gép rögtön mellette fekete. Bal oldalamon fekete a bill., a jobb oldalon pedig fehér. Drót egyikben sincsen. Vajon melyiket válasszam?

Apple Macintosh: Hypnotically encased iMacs trick unsuspecting computer users into accepting Darwinism

However, these propagandists aren’t just targeting the young. Take for example Apple Computers, makers of the popular Macintosh line of computers. The real operating system hiding under the newest version of the Macintosh operating system (MacOS X) is called… Darwin! That’s right, new Macs are based on Darwinism! While they currently don’t advertise this fact to consumers, it is well known among the computer elite, who are mostly Atheists and Pagans. Furthermore, the Darwin OS is released under an “Open Source” license, which is just another name for Communism. They try to hide all of this under a facade of shiny, “lickable” buttons, but the truth has finally come out: Apple Computers promote Godless Darwinism and Communism.

Karma is a scoring system on Slashdot meant to reward “good” posting and punish “bad” posting. The goal is that people who repeatedly post offensive, offtopic, or otherwise unwanted messages will be punished with a lower visibility of their messages, and those who post informative, insightful, or otherwise desirable messages are rewarded with a higher visibility. Karma whores are individuals, or messages themselves, that attempt to receive feedback in the form of karma points. Often these will be needless information (such as a link to a Wikipedia article relevant to the subject being discussed), or a message of a political nature that is in alignment with the groupthink so that it will be moderated upwards by people who agree with the stance expressed in the message.

We are here to find meaning. We are here to help other people do the same. Everything else is secondary.

We humans want to believe in our own species. And we want people, companies and products in our lives that make it easier to do so. That is human nature.

10 év uptime, ezt űbereld vazze

Egy nyugat-virginai VAX/AlphaServer klaszter 10 éve működik folyamatosan. Durva. Nekem is kéne egy ilyen uptime.
Gondolj bele, hogy kb. mint csináltál 10 évvel ezelőtt ilyenkor. Ez a cucc meg azóta megy. Akkor kapcsolták be először, amikor kijött a Norton Commander első változata, és kifejlesztették az első mobiltelefont.
