[13:49:08] <Lucifer_arma> If any of you have the chance to download the software that spammers use to spam our boards, lemme know
[13:49:12] <Lucifer_arma> I need a name generator
[13:56:44] *** Armanelgtron-- is now known as Armanelgtron
[13:57:40] <Armanelgtron> maybe you guys can find a stronger captcha system to use with your forums
[14:00:32] <Armanelgtron> or some kind of clever confirmation system that involves armagetron in some way, maybe to login to tron or something
[14:57:37] <Lucifer_arma> it's not the spam that's the problem, since our approval system is working fine
[14:57:55] <Lucifer_arma> the problem here is that I suck at naming characters, and the spammers are way better at it than I am, so I want their name generator :)
[14:58:15] <Lucifer_arma> in other news, Bill Gates is saying that his biggest mistake was "letting" Android take over the market for non-Apple phones
[14:58:51] <Lucifer_arma> I disagree. To the extent that Microsoft failed in the phone market, it's not because Android was so much better than anything they'd make. It's because they weren't willing to embrace open source development,
[14:59:06] <Lucifer_arma> which is Android's biggest strength, and WHY it is the dominant mobile OS
[15:00:01] <Lucifer_arma> it only took a few major revisions for Android to surpass iOS, and now, even though iOS gets some neat bells and whistles with every release, Apple just can't keep up
[15:00:44] <Lucifer_arma> Microsoft wouldn't have been able to compete with that, either. Had, say, Ubuntu 4 existed in 1995, Microsoft would have lost their OS monopoly.
[15:01:18] <Lucifer_arma> in the Linux world, we surpassed Microsoft Windows some time ago. Inertia (and possibly package management) is the reason they've stayed dominant in desktops.
[15:02:09] <Lucifer_arma> they're being beat everywhere. The only place they're not explicitly "losing" is desktop OS's in the US. And that market is shrinking.
[15:02:42] <Lucifer_arma> so, Bill Gates's biggest mistake? Not embracing open source development before 2005.
[15:03:35] <Lucifer_arma> (I don't know when they actually started embracing it, I'm declaring 2005 the year they started falling behind. While XP was the first desktop OS they released that was inferior to any Linux distribution, it was Vista that confirmed it)
