    I'm surprised they bothered. Empire was a buggy mess and it seemed like they were just abandoning it when they released Napoleon so soon afterward. Then again, Rome was also horribly buggy, and...

    Er, never mind. Ian said he's predicting rearguard battles in the future.

    It might be useful to use that convention in programming, to stand out or so people don't mess up capitalization or for whatever other reason, and I have no complaint about that. But when people...

    I never totally understood that thread but I think this whole affair WAS the rearguard battle. The original battle was System D* versus Upstart. Ian lost but he is not willing to accept total...

    lolwut

    This was not a Technical Committee vote. The Debian Project just had a general referendum with over 400 voters. Ian Jackson proposed the referendum to override the technical committee...

    Teenagers call each other fag five times a day and strongly support gay rights. Don't think too hard about it.

    The plot of this game is that North Korea has invaded and occupied the entire United States. It would be about equally plausible if they had us invaded by a small Canadian girl armed with a squirt...
  8. Does anyone understand what this law actually is?...

    Does anyone understand what this law actually is? If it blocks US companies from receiving software from Sudan it sounds like an import restriction.

    That is my point. Closing up the source code does not protect you from a patent claim on that in any way. (Is there seriously a patent on horizontal screens? Shit like that makes me feel that...
  10. Why do they need to do legal review on the UI? ...

    Why do they need to do legal review on the UI? Didn't they code it all themselves? Also, if they're violating patents then using a proprietary copyright doesn't protect them; I guess it does if you...

    Never said "proper English". I'm not focused so much on what other people consider proper as what I personally consider good or bad. I really think how a word is spelled and how it is pronounced...
  13. Yes. I don't think you know what "excuse"...

    Yes.


    I don't think you know what "excuse" means.

    I demand that we simultaneously decide whether these rules of English should apply to humans and parrots or only to humans and blue parrots. This issue must be settled in the same ballot, because my...
  15. I know, I think the official spelling is bad...

    I know, I think the official spelling is bad English so I don't use it. In English proper nouns are capitalized (meaning the first letter is a capital and the rest lowercase) and words and letters...

    Good point. Another option would be to just get the numbers from the browser makers. The browser makers do still record your hardware configuration for their own use (in Firefox some of this is...

    It hasn't gotten quite that bad yet. In the last vote Ian, Steve, and Andi buried DT below FD to block it, but Colin didn't go along with that. Unless I'm missing something, if they had finished...

    Wikipedia has the potential to be a fairly accurate distro counter (assuming web browsers accurately reported their distro, which I think a lot don't), but they haven't done the work needed to...

    Yup, as long as the Canonical guys all vote FD ahead of System D they can block System D. Perversely, this does not necessarily mean they deadlock. If any of the System D supporters vote D > U > FD...

    "Facts on the ground", and especially "creating facts on the ground" is a reference to Israel's policy of evicting Palestinians from land in the West Bank inside Palestine and building Jews-only...
