It's a good thing cars don't make you stop at random times to upload their operating system updates.
Oh, my. I'm using Fierfocks, too... And I'm worried about the Windoze XP loss of support, too. I don't know that much about computers and I don't want to start froom the beginning with Unix. or Linux, or whatever..., and I certainly can't afford a new one...or even a more recent used one. If "support" just means "no more upgrades," I think I can live with that.
Hell...I drove the same car for 30 years, and all I had to do was put gas and oil in it, and have it tuned every year or so...why can't computers be like that?
Mozilla's new CEO gave $1000 to oppose marriage equality.
This story has been going around multiple LGBT web sites.
I don't know what to make of it. $1000 is small potatoes in the political donation category. It doesn't make him a major player in the antigay world. The main Mozilla product that I use is the Firefox browser. I don't pay for firefox. I use an ad blocker so I don't see how ads could pay firefox for my use. I don't even know how they get money. There is boycott fatigue. It's not a big deal to change over to a different browser, but I wonder if it's worth it because the new CEO gave $1000 4 years ago for some reason. He has not spoken in defense of, or regretting, his action.
Scalia needs to get permanent lockjaw...or have a left hemisphere stroke that leaves him unable to communicate ... forever. I have some evil wishes for Clarence Thomas, too.
Sorry, folks, but I am not a "nice" person; my nickname since 1959 has been "La Bruja del Hielo." And I work at it when someone pisses me off, or hurts people I care about.
Grinning, thanks for pointing out the use of quotations by the judge. That's not only satisfyingly funny to me, but it also shows that some judges really do "get it" in regards to some of the tactics used by the anti-gay groups. It's his subtle way of saying that they have absolutely no credibility in their arguments.
My goodness, a lot is going on with gender issues. All the friction creates heat, which empowers change. So, being in the midst of a lot of legislation disputes is a good thing, even if uncomfortable. I am confident, marriage equality will be the law coming out of it for all USA.
Today a federal judge overturned Michigan's marriage ban! And he demonstrated how to properly use scare quotes:
‘The Court finds Regnerus’s testimony entirely unbelievable and not worthy of serious consideration.... his 2012 “study” was hastily concocted at the behest of a third-party funder, which... “was confident that the traditional understanding of marriage will be vindicated by this study.” ... The funder clearly wanted a certain result, and Regnerus obliged. Whatever Regnerus may have found in this “study,” he certainly cannot purport to have undertaken a scholarly research effort to compare the outcomes of children raised by same-sex couples with those of children raised by heterosexual couples.’
(from Bernard Friedman's decision, pp. 13-14)
