This is further proof of what I’ve always said: Apple people are generally pricks, and Apple users are generally imbeciles.

Via Seattle Rex:

A few years ago, Apple sold me a $4,000 computer with a defective graphics chip/logic board. The defective part was the Nvidia 8600M GT GPU, and when it was discovered that the machine was defective, Apple refused to take it back and issue me a refund. Instead, they promised to replace the 8600M GT boards when they failed, up to 4 years from the date of purchase.

Three years later, the board failed, and predictably, Apple refused to replace it. Instead, they used the fact that the machine wouldn’t boot (due to the failed logic board) to deny the repair. Not only that, but in addition, they tried to charge me a hefty sum of money to have it replaced, knowing full well that Nvidia pays for the full repair cost.

[…]

Three and a half months ago, after having my repair denied, I announced on this very site that I was going to sue Apple. Reading these lawsuit threats often, many people assumed that I was bluffing or blowing off steam, but true to my word, I did exactly what I said I was going to do. I sued Apple. […]

Fun fact? The guy

WON.

Rebirth is complete. Here’s the process log.

So my death and rebirth cycle is already complete, and I’m here to document the process. I know I’m late, I know I should’ve done this about a week ago when I actually was done, but eh, work has been a bitch, and I’m getting more and more demotivated with it as each day goes on. But whatever, let’s get on with this.

I know there’s stuff out there with thousands of lines of code, but this is ridiculous.

3,109 - 359 = 2,744

3,109 - 359 = 2,744 lines of code. IN A SINGLE FUNCTION.

THAT RETURNS A FUCKING BOOLEAN OF ALL THINGS.

MOTHER OF GOD

Countdown until death and rebirth: 7 days. Also other stuff.

The other stuff being mainly the fact that I updated my blog platform (Flatpress) to the latest released version. Bit late, but better late than never, I say.

Also…

SEVEN MORE DAYS…

I may not have the ultimate gear in the server…

But considering the gear I do have, I can safely say that I’m pretty damn proud of these.

I’ve been toying with the idea of completely redesigning my old XP calculator for Imagine, and came up with a moderately decent idea…

Rescued from the (almost) lost archives: A Random Story

I wrote this forever ago, in July 2007. Kinda liked it, so rescuing it from my old site backups. No real title because I never managed to think up one that satisfied me.

Off it goes. [Read More…]

Dilbert has the right idea.

A random commenter brings us a particular Dilbert strip with which I feel deeply in agreement.

There's no kill switch on awesome.

Kiss my fucking ass, “maturity” advocates.

I don't understand how [cosplay] is considered immature, but [drinking mindlessly at so-called 'parties'] is perfectly normal. If you need DRUGS and ALCOHOL to 'have a good time' you need to GROW THE FUCK UP.

MegaUpload has been taken down.

All because the MPAA and the RIAA decided to accuse it of piracy.

Next thing you know, RapidShare, MediaFire and the rest of the online locker sites will be taken down with the same bullshit claim.
 
 
 
All because of something I said before: the MPAA and the RIAA are fucking AFRAID of the fact that with the internet, they no longer have sole and unique control over creative content, and that they no longer will be able to monopolize the entire business of intellectual property by ENSLAVING the actual content creators.
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is what it’s like BEFORE SOPA and PIPA. Imagine what it’ll be like AFTER them.

US residents, call your legislators NOW. This NEEDS to stop.

I haven’t had a conversation this funnily awkward in a long, long while.

I was talking with a friend over Messenger about this reddit thread, and the fact that there’s an abnormal bunch of comments about girls having their periods while wearing white pants comes up. And so this bit of unintended comedy gold took place.

「Sh1k1」「遠野志貴」「DZ」 says (11:17):
concerning the unnatural amounts of “period + white pants” stories
i do hope you’ve never made the mistake (and never will) of wearing white pants >_>
[Friend] says (11:17):
LOL. No.
[Friend] says (11:18):
I don’t even remember my first period, but when it starts, shit goes dark.
「Sh1k1」「遠野志貴」「DZ」 says (11:18):
…i hope that last bit was metaphorical >_>
[Friend] says (11:19):
XD!!! I MEAN I WEAR JEANS.
[Friend] says (11:20):
SHIT AS IN CLOTHES
CLOTHES AS IN DARK ONES
LIKE JEANS
