I was having trouble before my HD went completely south, and thought maybe it was on my end. Now I'm seeing the same things in Linux - webpages stop downloading, the browser freezes, and I have to kill the process.
Not here or TMC, mind you, it's the big ripoff (read: "commercial") pages like Google and TVGuide.
Is this the result of "tiered access"? Anyone know?
Or is it Firefox, IE, and Konqueror? (never had the problem with Lynx)
(And why doesn't Suse include Lynx, btw? You'd think in over a gig of garbage, there would be something useful. What a useless piece of Windows-dressing this is!)
Next time you experience it run a traceroute, could be maintenance somewhere in your packet path. Doesn't sound like it with it being related to specific sites. Also check with others in your local area that use the same service provider.
It's caused by 0bama. You can expect more internet outages, power grid interruptions, and random violence as we slowly slide …into turd world status.
First of all, his speech was great, that 1 billion dollar, once borrowed from China, is gonna kick ass and turn our 2d world infrastructure into 2.5d world infrastructure through 'broadband penetration', yeah baby, you heard that right, penetration! And whoever drew that critical cartoon is being taken care of by the NAACP.
The main point I was trying to make was in the second sentence, similarly to the religion thread actually. This way lie dragons, so the smart thing to do is not add fuel to the fire (either supporting or arguing).
I think he refers to the steady decline in average intelligence and its long term consequences as depicted in the movie Idiocracy. Or maybe the seemingly steady retardation of society as caused by democracy where people develop a false sense of entitlement which encourages the governments to become ever more nurturing and caring - which as has been shown in Europe - is the nail in the coffin of organized religion as the state takes over the traditional role of the church. Islam has shown however that a rejection of modern day society, and even disgust, is a proved and successful way to stop its members from assimilating in societies ruled by 'big mother' governments. I think some Christian churches in the US do so quite successfully.
Tyche is being as serious as he ever is. It's definitely no secret that Tyche and Samson are as right wing as you can get.
It's also no secret that many MANY people hate that there even is a right wing, or a viewpoint not in line with the modern left wing media. One of the great ironies of those who go around advocating free speech - free only so long as you are agreeing with them.
This has nothing to do with anything, Samson. Note that I haven't said anything other than observing that this kind of thing is not appropriate here. This kind of discussion is simply not healthy for this site. I'd have thought (or at least hoped) that we'd have all learned that by now.
