typical brand asociation

we see it all the time in other commercial product associations. like...

for who knows how long, for many people a reciprocating saw is a "Sawzall" (brand manufactured by Milwaukee).

for vacuum equivalence, most people have heard the "sucks like an Electrolux" brand reference.

there are lots more, I just can't remember any right now.

edit, it occurred to me after posting this, you might be referring to the squawk about the companies activities not just the phrase "let me google that"

re: brand association

Yeah, I mean all the coverage of every move google makes. ...and all the drooling and ass kissing.

I mean they invented a mighty fine search yeah, but beyond that I don't like any one company having so much data or power. and they're expanding their territory every day. my spideyhairs are prickling.

huh?

re: twice

Oh I see. Yeah, I see that happen on occasion with random usernames. I have no idea why, what's malfunctioning, but given the flakey nature of some of drupal's code I've never worried too much about it. I know it happens sometimes when one will log into tuxmachines.org then uses www.tuxmachines.org next time. I've tried to minimize that with a rewrite. It can happen with two active browsers too I think - like being logged into with Firefox and Konqueror at the same time.

However, I seriously doubt anyone else using your account. You could change the password if you're concerned, but only one IP address has accessed your login today - starts with 69.87....

Perhaps, it is because I used two computers in sequence with two cookies. One had to manually log in.

Yep, that sounds like it.

Google sickness is just a state of mind honest.

I had the same problem about a year ago with Google the whole world... So my brain and I came to a tacit agreement for our sanities sake.

Whenever I see the word Google (I had to type these with eyes closed) then dear old brain converts by ROT13 or some clever trick and I see Meddle. Yup.

So I am typing in this comment box from within my Chromey Meddle browser another tab is open to my meddle wave pages and I expect some meddle mail soon from readers of this comment. So please Dear TuxMachine friends you have it in your power to change Go// Meddle to whatever forever. OMG the power. LOL Have a great day.

Awsum.............

ok we are agree

Fedora: The Latest

  • Korora 22 Flash Update
    As we announced when Korora 22 was released, Adobe Flash is no longer included by default.
  • Fedora repository for Doom stuff: Zandronum, Doomseeker, CnDoom
    I had a bit of free time over the last few days, and looked at the current state of the art for Doom on Linux. The awesome Rahul Sundaram has been looking after several Doom-related packages for a while – including the Chocolate Doom package – but there are some things that seem to be commonly used these days that we didn’t have packaged. So I packaged them up, and put them in a new repository!
  • CUDA 7.0 enabled programs for Fedora 22
    I’ve udpated the CUDA version in the Fedora 22 Nvidia repository, it now contains CUDA 7.0.28 along with the cuFFT 7.0.35 patch. Note that from this version, CUDA is x86_64 bit compatible only, so there are no more i386 packages. There is still the cudart library available for 32 bit, but I don’t think it’s worth packaging.
  • Secure Boot — Fedora, RHEL, and Shim Upstream Maintenance: Government Involvement or Lack Thereof
    Note that there are parts of this chain I’m not a part of, and obviously linux distributions I’m not involved in that support Secure Boot. I encourage other maintainers to offer similar statements for their respective involvement.
  • Remi repository is changing
    The "remi" repository exists for > 10 years, it have changed a lot, and some recent changes worth to be explained.
