Dude commented on FAQ.
Can you fix up my post a bit I thought I would have a review page->

I have been in programming for 25+ years and every year there is the new wonder language. There must be 1,000's by now, C/C++,Fortran, Pascal, Cobol, C#, Python, PERL, Ruby, F#, on and on and on...... What I think the thing to do is, everyone create your own language. All these languages are just wrappers for others C/C++ libraries and given a marketing name anyway.

I would suggest MotherF#$%ingC. Then when you go into the interview you can say, "I'm the world's #1 expert in MotherF#$%ingC." They will ask what is MotherF#$%ingC? You reply a new social networking langauge targeted for the urban environment. They will ask: What is some of the syntax and semantics of MotherF#$%ingC?

Glad, you asked, for example, you don't have a Home page you have a Crib page. You don't have functions like MyString.length(). You use MyBitch.String.howmuchyouholdingoutonme(). They will be so impressed, especially the Harvard MBA's, with your up to date abilities, you can, I promise, name your own price!

If there's a WP plugin that offers preview pages for comments, I might add it.

I don't see the difference in the two comments.

If you really want to, you can put the post on your own blog, and just give a link.

Some languages really are better. VB.NET is better than MFC. PHP is better than writing your own webserver in C. However, a lot of stuff out there is garbage. Node.js and Rails are two examples.

Another Anon commented on Ron Paul's Competing Currencies Proposal - A Simple Way To Reintroduce Gold And Silver As Money.
If something is legal tender, it is money. And money is not taxed. So problem solved. Maybe.

To Anonymous Coward. "chop the silver coin up?" Are you serious? If you give a cashier a $100 dollar bill for a $50 dollar purchase, do you expect her to tear it in half to make change?

Legal tender status means that the hard money circulates in parallel with the soft. You can make change with "change" or FRN dollars or pennies or whatever.

There are sales taxes, capital gains taxes, and reporting requirements on gold and silver. That is immoral and unconstitutional. Unfortunately, almost every judge disagrees with me.

You can use APMEX fractional silver (1/2, 1/4, and 1/10 oz) for making change. You can also use "junk silver" (pre-1964 State dimes and quarters). It isn't that hard to use gold and silver as money, once people are used to it. Unfortunately, in the present, people who try to make it easy to use gold and silver as money wind up in jail. (examples are Bernard NotHaus and Franklin Sanders).

This subject always brings out the pro-State trolls. There's more State propaganda on money and banking than almost any other issue.


Saurabh commented on Megaupload And The Effectiveness Of State Violence.
I was wondering when you were going to talk about it. Most probable reason for Megaupload shutdown is the MegaBox service that they were supposed to launch. If it had appeared it would have threatened Music Companies monopoly considerably. This only goes on to prove that state is nothing but tool for rich.

PS: If something happens to your site, you can at least recover article text from Google Reader feed (probably).

gilliganscorner commented on Megaupload And The Effectiveness Of State Violence.

Hi FSK,

My personal two cents is the filesharing is only a cover story. Perhaps the real concern about filesharing is the advance of P2P currency such as BitCoin that bypasses the State's taxation/inflation pogrom foisted on the tax cattle.

I don't like BitCoin. Every transaction is reported to every BitCoin client. That makes it very easy for the State police.

If my blog were shut down, I probably would also be in jail, making recovering my blog archive my least concern. I do keep occasional WP database dumps and PHP backups, but that does no good if my home is also raided.

I did mention the MegaBox angle. The larger goal is to prevent people from becoming famous without going through State gatekeepers. State insiders are also very threatened by the fact that the Internet enables blogs like this.

As long as there are general-purpose computers and communication tools, there will be filesharing. If necessary, you'd find someone willing to burn DVDs and mail them to you. (I did that once to get MAME roms, before BitTorrent.)

Great article FSK!

-----> Copying is NOT "stealing". <-------

This is something more people should think about. I am not saying it is always ok to copy/share stuff but it certainly is not the same as stealing. "Sharing" is certainly closer to the truth than "stealing" but that doesn't sell as well in an article.

I always get annoyed when media distributors/producers claim huge - and often quite specific numbers (how did they calculate those?) losses because of illegal file sharing.

How do they know how many (if any) would have bought their music if it wasn't free?

Of course they also never mention the free advertising & exposure their music gets when they quote these numbers...

Jason commented on Megaupload And The Effectiveness Of State Violence.

actually, "sharing" is not in the interest of our growth based economy either. If we all stopped watching TV and started hanging out with neighbours and friends at home we would end up sharing things and consuming less artificial entertainment.

Imagine a 30 floor appartment complex with one vacuum cleaner per floor instead of 10!

Imagine all the electric drills, toys, playstations, lawn mowers etc.. we could share. This would certainly bring down the economy and we would not have to pay housing for these things either.

Sharing would need to become illegal to keep the system going a bit longer - and not just for media files. Perhaps this will be next step (in case people still remember & suddenly rediscover that sharing works for 3 dimensional items too) :)

Sharing tangible property isn't the same as sharing electronic files.

I might prefer my own appliances. I don't have to worry about my neighbors ruining it or not doing maintenance. If it was a shared vacuum cleaner, I might wind up being the only one who ever cleans the bags.

For bigger expenses, like zipcar, sharing does make economic sense.

Taken to a ridiculous extreme, it's easier for me to buy my own toaster than try to share a toaster.

Also, the way they get the "lost sales" figure is "Downloads * retail price." They assume that every "illegal" download is a lost sale at full retail price.

yourmom commented on Megaupload And The Effectiveness Of State Violence.

you definitely made your point here my friend, and of course they calculate based on full retail prices, not to consider their material is often pure crap, sharing makes easier for customers to try things (movies, music) and if you really like you just buy it, at least that's what i see in my society.

I don't doubt it would come to full censorship for the whole internet if we let this fags approve such laws as SOPA


Marc commented on Tim Thomas Makes A Heroic Stand.
Yeah right...Used to think you were one of the faces of American Hockey. Now I'd prefer not see you put the USA sweater on again. This was not a political trip, you made it that. Its an honor and a privilege to be invited to the White House regardless of who's in power. Just ask all the soldiers and medalists who are bestowed the same invitation for much greater accomplishments. But I guess you're bigger than all of them too. You're a hockey goalie, and an ignorant one at that.

Everything a politician does is political. You missed the point of my post. If an athlete meets the President, that's an implicit endorsement of the President.

What if the whole team refused to go? What if more athletes started speaking out against a corrupt government?

f commented on Tim Thomas Makes A Heroic Stand.

Do you read http://www.thedailybell.com at all ? Thoughts?

Sometimes, but not much.

That's another website that says "Something is seriously wrong with the way things are now!", but doesn't really suggest alternatives.


gilliganscorner commented on Uriniating Soldiers.
"Without soldiers mindlessly obeying orders, pointless wars aren’t possible."

War initiated between nations cannot be enabled without a nation first initiating force against its own citizens by way of taxation.

Taxation is war by the State against its own tax cattle.

Taxes are collected by policemen who obey orders without questioning them. With militarized police, police are just another type of soldier.

Also, war is a good excuse for taking away freedom. The "War on Terror" is an excuse for expanding State surveillance power. During WWII, the withholding tax was a "temporary emergency measure".
