A Comparison of Windows Versus Linux ArchitectureA Basic Comparison of Windows and Linux Atchitecture.
Note: this is not meant to be an in-depth explanation of either Windows or Linux or their respective architectures. Rather is is meant for people with little knowledge of either, or who only have knowledge of one, to understand why these two are so different (and I admit to some bias in favor of the Linux concepts over the Microsoft one.)
If you know Windows, then you may have a general understanding of most of this information, but even if you are a long time Windows user, you may not know much about the internals of how it works, so this may help you.
Microsoft Windows originated from the DOS operating system. DOS stands for Disk Operating System and was meant as a method for allowing computers to access larger amounts of data than could be easily stored on RAM or ROM chips. Windows grew from DOS as the Graphical User Interface pioneered mainly by Apple became more and more prevalent.
In it's most basic sense, Windows
Ranting Time: Why you should never trust believersWarning: This rant will contain strong language that your kids will don't care about, or stuff that may offend you. Click the on something else if you don't like see my full opinion.
I feel like this rant need to be made, because there are too many idiotic believers out there that is make our society lacking the sense of logic and knowledge. What's the of those type of people? It's makes some of us wants to go up to them and punch them in the face. Here's what they do. They want to talk about some bullshit that doesn't make sense and want to shared that to the world for everyone to here, but some people that have more intelligence knows that this is whole beliefs is absolute nonsense. This is exact same thing that people on the internet do. This is mostly common in religion. Such as these type of religious people that some people have deal on the internet and possibly real life Christians, Muslims, Jews, Atheists, and other types of religious people that I don't
My Top Ten Favorite Linux AppsMy Favorite Linux Apps and Add-ons
Here are a few items that I normally install on any Linux Computer I use...
1) Compiz... This Comnpositing Window manager gives you so many cool effects and ways to tweak your system that I feel lost without it. While it is only suitable for fairly recent hardware, and works best with a good graphics card with a fast GPU and lots of dedicated RAM, once you meet those requirements, there's nothing else like it. It can be tricky to set it up, but there is a wealth of information online for nearly every distribution of Linux and how to install Compiz and get it working (assuming your distro didn't come with it already installed)
2) KWIN... a slightly more stable alternative to Compiz. It does not have as many effects available, but it does have the most popular ones. It can be a bit more stable and proably uses a little less computer resources than Compiz as well.
3) Cairo-dock... a wonderful, very customizable dock bar that can be used in many ways and
What it means to be in moirallegiance
I wanted to write a little thing on moirallegiance and what it means (at least to me). No matter where I looked on the internet I could not find a good definition or explanation of moirallegiance, so I figured I’d try my hand at it.
Firstly, I wanted to touch on the realness and importance of moirallegiance. Although the term moirallegiance is borrowed from a web-comic and applies to troll relationships I do truly believe it applies in real life to humans. I am also of the belief that moirallegiance is just as important and serious as matespritship (what is traditionally viewed as romantic love).
Moirallegiance is a platonic variation of love. It is a person’s platonic soul-mate. Many people liken a moirail to being a best friend, but I don’t agree with this. When someone is truly someone’s ‘rail it means they provide the other with balance and security. The relationship between moirails is built on the ability to balance each other. With out each other mo
A Moderate take on Climate and Energy UsageLennart Bengtsson: The Science And Politics Of Climate Change
Lennart Bengtsson, Neue Zürcher Zeitung
The science isn’t settled and we still don’t know how best to solve the energy problems of our planet.
Since the end of the 19th century, we have known that the Earth’s climate is sensitive to greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. At that time, the Swedish chemist Svante Arrhenius showed that an increase in CO2 concentrations would lead to a warmer climate. However, Arrhenius harbored little hope that this would happen. Consequently, the Swedes would have to continue to suffer in a cold and miserable climate. Since then, much has changed. Annual CO2 emissions have now reached a level that is about 20 times higher than that of 1896. This has caused concern worldwide.
More CO2 in the atmosphere leads undoubtedly to a warming of the earth surface. However, the extent and speed of this warming are still uncertain, because we cannot yet separate well enou
Bryan Singer Accused of Molestation in '99
Bryan Singer, director, producer and writer of more than two dozen productions including the X-Men films, was accused Wednesday in a federal lawsuit of having sexually abused a 17-year-old boy at estates in Los Angeles and Kailua, Hawaii. The alleged conduct took place in 1999 and included rape and other physical force and forced intoxication with cocaine, including at "sordid parties," according to the highly graphic lawsuit.
"The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit," said Singer's attorney Marty Singer. "We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit.
"It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan' s new movie (X-Men: Days of Future Past) is about to open in a few weeks," he said.
The plaintiff is Michael F. Ega
German Lesson #1First of all ... German is easier than you think, I needed only one year (because I lived in Russia then but i'm half Russian and half German) but that's not the matter ... I go especially for the Hetalia - Fan Fictions because when it's going to be romantic ... I can't sit properly anymore because it's so funny. Anyways I first off show simple words like the following but first of the "rule" like I call it :I <-(Smileys are always very useful to explain things x3).
English | German (rule #1)
her | sie (sie is by the way a formal version ... in a german letter for example, if you don't know someone you usually write : Sie, Ihre, Ihren usw
you | dich (eexample-time: I love you = Ich liebe dich)
her | Ihr (example-time: das ist ihr muffin = that's her Muffin)
his | sein/e (example: His 5 meter = Seine 5 Meter)
me | mich/ mir (example:what's with me? = W
A Kids' Guide to BullyingI was bullied a lot as a kid and this is just what I have noticed over time. Note I grew up/went to school in the suburbs so I have NO idea what inner city schools are like. Also the internet wasn't very big yet when I was a kid so I don't really know much about cyber-bullying.
1. Don't let it get to you.
I know that's easier said than done, but if they don't think it's getting to you, they do eventually stop. Besides, if it isn't true, it shouldn't matter. If it is true, you should probably re-evaluate your priorities.
2. Going to the teacher isn't always the best idea.
Sounds like a good idea; unfortunately, while it might be a good idea in the short-term, it might end up screwing you in the long-term. This one's kinda tricky because it can be hard to judge when you SHOULD tell a teacher/parent. If it's actually endangering your life then by all means tell them, but if it's just petty teasing just brush it off.
3. If it isn't true, it shouldn't b
