I give up on Vista! Going back to XP.

    AFAIK, BSD doesn't get the updates as often as OSX or even Wintendo.

  2. For me it says BSD kernel 6.0 7.9.9
    It's not that bad. Has problems with Java though, I think MS got all
    pissy with SUN and decides to break it from time to time. Those little
    games are not "value added" for people that have to use their computer
    for real work. I have found XP to be reasonably stable, but the problems
    I have had are important ones (as above) which makes it unacceptable for
    use in what I am presently doing. As well, because XP is so susceptible
    to viri and worms and shit like that, it's not like you can leave it
    connected to the internet and trust it to keep your data safe.
    Yes, no longer do you get the "so and so sent me a file but they used
    program X and it's not compatible with my program Y do you know who can
    read the file" type of thing.
    I knew that, but what does it do? I mean email was around before
    exchange, what does exchange do to justify it's self? I know it can do
    calendering stuff but so does gmail, there is just no real use for
    exchange that can't be found elsewhere and better. Unless of course I am
    missing something.
    The Health Sciences department uses exchange, but I think they are the
    only ones. At my other job for the CDC, I was told I had to get an
    account on the exchange server, I did, and it became a black hole for my
    email. Some of my mail went to that account and some went to my regular
    account, it drove me nuts until I figured out who's mail was going where.

    No, sir - the burden of proof lies on your side if you made the claim
    that Vista is breaking backwards compatibility. Innocent until proven
    guilty - I think we had that not only since Roman times but even since
    the reign of Hammurabi. ;-)
    I don't know - I assume that the human language and brain can usually
    cope with the fact that some things are not said directly but implied. ^^

  7. Oh look, Greggie is humping my leg, begging for attention again.
    What's the matter, Sweetums, can't your ONLINE girlfriend satisfy you?

    PS - did you ever get around to posting pictures of her, or are you
    too ashamed to show her face?

  10. Where is the backpeddle? You did know that a powerpoint presentation
    could be output as a pdf didn't you? or is this something YOU learned
    from this thread?
    There are no IT departments nor print graphic people to piss off. Each
    journal has it's own set of requirements. Some require tiff images and
    pdf text, some require MS word for everything, some only publish figures
    online etc. etc. There is no way to standardize the output. But since
    you know nothing about publishing in the scientific world you aren't
    qualified to comment. However, as a way of summarizing large amounts of
    data for various uses, powerpoint is a good compromise. Stick to your
    little cartoons and useless webpages and your walmart job. If you ever
    do work in the real world, maybe you will come to the understanding that
    there is no "perfect" way to do things.
     
    Rev Turd Fredericks, Jun 2, 2008
  11. Well you must deal with a lot more idiots than I do. I have a pretty
    "scary" demeanor online, so most people who are lacking in technical
    ability will shy away from me for the most part, whilst those who are
    familiar with how things should actually be done are more apt to do
    business with me, knowing they're on the same level.

    And in line with that, those lacking in technical ability who also get
    upset easily will often retard into the position that I must be lying
    and don't really know what I'm doing. Those sorts will defend their
    failing misconceptions by keeping themselves ignorant and simply
    refuting anything and everything I say with absolutely no proof to the
    contrary (ie Hatter Addicts).

    There are a ~small~ number of non-technical people whom I do business
    with, mostly all people I know in RL who find out about my technical
    genius. In RL I generally try and play down my skill level to avoid
    getting arsed into, basically, charity work. It's sort of liak if you
    were a doctor then everybody who knew you were a doctor would be
    buggin you all the time to look at their bunions or hemorrhoids or
    whatever.

    I expect stupidity from those types though because most of them are
    NOT generally working in the IT field or anywhere near it.
    Well it all depends on the purpose really. As Rev was implying, he
    simply copies the images out of the Power Point file and then resaves
    them into a different format. Which of course is absolutely fucking
    retarded since resaving a JPEG as a PNG or TIFF file isn't magically
    going to make all the quality that was destroyed via the initial JPEG
    conversion magically come back.

    In any event, even if he's now trying to claim that that's not what he
    ~really~ meant, the format he's using, Power Point, is still
    absolutely fuckin stupid. You know that, I know that and anyone else
    who isn't a complete fuckin n00b level idiot knows that. You
    mentioned already in yer post what he SHOULD be using, maybe you could
    take the effort to do a lil "charity" work and educate him. LOL

    LOL

    Fuckin n00b level dipshit, hopefully he learns something from this
    thread so he can stop pissing off whatever IT and print/graphic
    departments he works with. I feel sorry for them, I truly, truly do.

    you're even moar shallow and pathetic than I first thought. I bet yer
    a real daddy's boi, always had someone to pay your way through
    everything, never having to actually do any work or ever having to
    live "ghetto", etc, etc. To put it moar bluntly, there are starving
    children in Africa that would LOVE to come and work for Wal*mart, hell
    they would LOVE to work a gawd damn coal mine if they thought it'd get
    them a hot meal once a week. Fucks like you eventually burn in hell
    though, so I guess it's okay. ^__^

    OK, you can answer a complex queston in five minutes. And if you did that
    for an hour, that would be 12 questions. So if that hour gave you $60 then
    it would be $5 a question.

    $60/hour is a buck a minute. $5 for a 5-minute answer.

  20. My bad, I didn't bother to complete the multiplication...not that I'm
    really paying all that close attention. I'm usually watching TV or
    movies when I'm posting to Usenet. If a poster I'm replying to is
    especially inconsequential or boring than my attention in replying
    generally waivers a lot more.
