If Trumppence has to stop using that Queen song I'm sure they can use Ted Nugent's "Out of Control". @Chazbet And I thought it would be KS OK LA MS WV or MI. Maybe just put them all in one list.SOF trades in Android phones for iPhone 6s: https://t.co/NoeR5xJYg5

Reputation as one of the GOP's best policy wonks. https://t.co/ER8BLKsw66 @frioux Heeeeeere's fREW! Like that? 😜 @schoun Compare what is in #28pages to what we were told to justify the Iraq invasion. Former is actionable latter is implausible.On the backside of California's high desert. DSL, but modem speeds, 56kbps. Have a 2.5GB update to do. Ugh.A true conspiracy theorist would now think that the coup was staged to facilitate a full-on crackdown.

Surely the free market will fix this up in a jiffy! https://t.co/W9WFIEa9lb @tbridge Sheesh.

Going to take some aspirin and antacid first. #jknk @toddheberlein For a moment there I thought you were referring to something found in the 28 Pages dump. #NothingToSeeHereMoveAlongLooks like Trump made a deal with GOP: they get one of theirs on ticket and he gets their full backing. Note to GOP: He always wins. #0sum

But it's inferior to Puppet et al. I think it doesn't so OSX. Not sure yet. @glgray No. Michael Dell bought back Dell, highly leveraged with his PE money IIRC. Dell spun off chunks of the company, including KACE etc. @glgray Maybe I should pitch a session on "KACE on OSX" for next PSUMac 2017. @glgray Dell spun it off a few weeks ago, with a bunch of other software. Not sure the name of the new corporate owner now. @glgray Irony is the KACE box is running FreeBSD underneath, which is a close relative of OSX. KACE is just an app on top of the BSD OS. @glgray Good luck with that. We are about to roll out KACE (1100, 2000) in my shop. Looks fine for Windows. Not sure about OSX. 1/2 @glgray It is one of the worst. But all the signature-based are simply no longer effective.IMHO, if Apple wants Swift to take off with server development, they need to get AWS to support it as a first class language.
Retweeted by Dan O'Donnell @glgray Antivirus software (static, signature-based) is basically useless these days, unless PSU has already migrated to a dynamic AVware.

@feorlen You are right. Asked for 10% (would have settled for 5%). He got a huge round of applause for 23%. (I expect more award later.)One of our guys figured out how to remove 23% of the mass of one of our upcoming satellites. That's huge! #fasterlighterbettercheaper.@cyberwar Homes connected to public roads are not private. #irony #satire @mikecloppert @eWEEKNews Sometimes we have to lose a case that deserves to be won so the far worse precedent is not set? IANAL. @mikecloppert @eWEEKNews By this legal reasoning, every home and business with a road leading to it should lose right to privacy. #BadLaw

@frioux Yep. And if you think of factors feel free to let me know. @frioux home mortgages held by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? Pay up TX! And pay in USD, not fiat TX currency! (We will accept gold.) @frioux Federal airways and waterways… Border Patrol and Customs, Dept of Agriculture and agriculture subsidies (cotton subsidies!) @frioux Those int’l corporations with US HQ in TX (e.g. Toyota). Do they make a new HQ in US, or just leave TX…? (Dallas, Houston, SanAnton) @frioux They would have to, because they'll need the revenue. @frioux Science funding to universities and labs? No more. Civilian employees on US mil bases? Choose your citizenship - US or TX. @frioux 1/3 of TX state budget comes from Fed $. Will require a new TX income tax - and bureaucracy necessary to run it. @frioux Yup. They have nooo idea. First: all those US military bases? US territory. US tanks and planes? Still US. Other US territory…? @frioux I'm currently writing a satirical article about #Texit. Should be mucho hilariouso. :-) @frioux You probably can mute it because the real effects (tech companies decamping) won't begin for a few months.
