qu1j0t3schestowitz: "Fortune (November, 1949) offers "A Key to the Automatic Factory" in pointing out that "the computers that direct guns might also direct machines." How persistently the face of murderous violence associates itself with know-how! It is hard to say why the public target of such a factory should be any happier than the recipient of a bomb or shell. And it has long been plain that Dec 16 01:22
qu1j0t3the executives of production and selling have been thinking in military terms, smashing public resistance with carefully planned barrages followed by shock troops of salesmen to mop up the pockets.Dec 16 01:22

schestowitztypical groups for underclassDec 16 07:08
schestowitzI say good things about the filipino community, especially in discriminatory places like here and elsewhere. I don't use the word "filipino" or whatever to refer to people -- they should not be defined by ethnicity or nationality but rather but what they are as characters.Dec 16 07:08
schestowitzI am especially sensitive to racism in the sense that I can stop it and circumvent it, but the road to educating people is long. Maybe one day these words will be blurred out of existence and distinguishers will be trait- and behaviour-based. Alas, now I just ramble too much and veer on an off-topic tangent, so I'll wrap this up.Dec 16 07:08

schestowitz 16 09:07
TechrightsSocial@satipera (satipera)'s status on Friday, 16-Dec-11 09:05:49 UTC - I disagreed with a lot that he said and agreed with some of it but let's not get carried away.Dec 16 09:07

TechrightsSocial@: Dec 16 14:36
schestowitzHeh. I used to take it as a compliment when people erroneously thought this was automated because I just read and write quickly. Filtering stuff out is easy and I encourage that if it makes one happier.Dec 16 14:37

schestowitz┬┐Free GNU/Linux? If you want a really trully free software according to the FSF you have to install those ones that said @flam3boy (-Alessandro-) and remember to say always "GNU/Linux" instead only "Linux" :PDec 16 15:23
schestowitzPeople may think that is really different but it's not. For example:Dec 16 15:23
schestowitzBlag is based on Fedora, really is not different at all. Its almost the same as Fedora but with a free kernel.Dec 16 15:23
schestowitzThe distro you have to choice is depends on what you want to do with it.Dec 16 15:23
schestowitzUbuntu I call it a "final" distro, I tried to change things from basis(lets say from /etc and so on) and usually didn't respond so well or as expected.Dec 16 15:23
schestowitz"Linux Mint" is the same as Ubuntu or Debian depending on the version, more beautiful, nicer, but a bit "heavy" for my taste(and for low machines!).Dec 16 15:23
schestowitzFedora is good choice: Free repositories, except for the Linux kernel that has blobs. I like it, and even more if you want to experiment a bit. I like it more if you use Freedora! (free Linux kernel + Fedora).Dec 16 15:23
schestowitzThere are lots of choices: Gentoo, Blag, CentOS, etc.Dec 16 15:23
schestowitzNot all of them are totally free.Dec 16 15:23
schestowitzOther operative systems "non-GNU/Linux" are FreeDOS, ReactOS, etc.Dec 16 15:23
schestowitz"Dec 16 15:23
MinceRwhat's the difference between Freedora and Blag?Dec 16 15:28
schestowitzblag seems to rarely be updated when Fedora is released... maybe it's neglectedDec 16 15:32

schestowitzThe LOLer: "    Without the efforts of philanthropists like Bill Gates, American public education would still be held hostage by the special interest groups and union leadership that are more interested in protecting jobs than they are about protecting the integrity of the teaching profession.  Parents should embrace both the new Common Core Standards as well as the reforms in teacher evaluations.  Our children deserve better.Dec 16 20:19

qu1j0t3what a load of utter bollocks.Dec 16 20:21
qu1j0t3that's so messed up it's scary.Dec 16 20:21
qu1j0t3well, we all know what happens when nobody "protects jobs". ... those unions one day will protect these self-same children AGAINST the depredations of madmen like Gates. if they survive this latest round, that is...Dec 16 20:21
qu1j0t3at least it's easy to identify agents if they write as bluntly as thatDec 16 20:22
qu1j0t3pretty incompetent :)Dec 16 20:22

XFaCEschestowitz: Can you substantiate the claims I've seen that state that Bill is autistic?Dec 16 20:39
XFaCEMore accurate, on Autistic spectrum?Dec 16 20:39
XFaCENot against people with ASD of course, becuase I would be the biggest hypocrite there is, but it would help explain aspects of Bill's often uncaring behaviourDec 16 20:41
schestowitzI don't think that mattersDec 16 20:42
schestowitzAnd I heard similar claims made about RMSDec 16 20:42
schestowitzIt's just a character assassination thingDec 16 20:43
XFaCEschestowitz: Looking at Encyclopedia Dramatica, they don't link ASD with RMS; they do with GatesDec 16 20:43

qu1j0t3XFaCE: i don't think there is any doubt that Bill Gates rates 'dangerous sociopath' on the autism spectrum.Dec 16 21:08
qu1j0t3XFaCE: most ppl are very ignorant about Gates, and there is a natural human tendency to hope for the best, when the truth is very horribleDec 16 21:08
qu1j0t3XFaCE: it's just such a _comfortable_ narrative to accept, that he is working for all of usDec 16 21:09
qu1j0t3ditto ObamaDec 16 21:09
XFaCEI never accepted either of those assumptions :)Dec 16 21:09
qu1j0t3Gates is one of the most accomplished criminals of the 20th C... has few real competitors. Many of his competitors manage to stay completely out of the public eye.Dec 16 21:10
qu1j0t3XFaCE: I know.Dec 16 21:10
XFaCEWhy does a criminal rich guy who abused the system suddenly think he owes the general population anything?Dec 16 21:10
qu1j0t3the Forbes rich list has been a very useful shield for the megarich :)Dec 16 21:10
qu1j0t3XFaCE: right.Dec 16 21:10
XFaCEAnswer, he doesn'tDec 16 21:10
qu1j0t3and it goes on from there. anyone who doubts his criminality only has to look at the evidence that's in the public record.Dec 16 21:11
qu1j0t3his 'philanthropic' career is just more of the same.Dec 16 21:11
