    He copied the bugs, the CSS, the exact placement of radio buttons... yeah, that did take work!  Do you know how hard it is to get the syntax on "cp" just right?  LOL


    You’re no fun Karim, I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt... assuming that he didn’t use his l33t hax0r skills to hack into the MySpace servers and do that cp (or copy as it is said that it’s hosted on Windows)... rather than build everything from scratch... functionally and visually identical to the original... yes... I know what I’m saying... in either case I’m giving him far too much credit.

    Shame you got rid of the tried and true MySpace UI copy that you started with.

  • Desktop Linux versus Windows XP shootout

    Ooo, speaking of the old SiteSpaces ripping off MySpace and Beer’s insistence that everything was created from scratch... Remember the old worm that hit MySpace? A while back I found this article about it.

    Scroll down half way into the comments to this gem:

    This vunerability was reported and patched on beerco's sitespaces.net

    If anybody finds that it hasn't been sufficiently patched, please contact "tux" the linux penguin on the site and file a bug report.


    I always thought it funny that he not only copied the look and feel of MySpace... but also one of it’s bugs... that takes work!

    You must not being clear enough then... of course, it is hard to see through the web of lies you add on to on an ongoing basis.

  • New Years Resolution?

    1. Finish MCSD (2 more tests)
    2. Not write any more unmanaged code (will be broken on Tuesday when I go back to work)
    3. Not respond to Beer’s constant trolling

    BTW: If any of you have shares in microsoft, you may be able to demand that they open their books to you and provide printed copies of all *financial documents. So there's one to grow on. It may be a fun exercise to pry into them if you have a few shares instead arguing about nothing with me here.
    No need. Microsoft is making money for its shareholders... can yours say the same?

    Other than the “We love our son living at home with us” residual benefits your parents get of course.

    You keep saying you can... why not get it over with and just post them?

    Otherwise somebody could buy out Microsoft tomorrow in a hostile take over.


    According to Yahoo Finance, MSFT has a Market Capital of ~279 billion (yes, with a b)... off the top of my head I really can't think of any companies that would be capable alone of a successful hostile takeover of Microsoft... your company on the other hand... if anyone was selling could probably be taken over with the singles I've got in my wallet.

    Some folks just thrive on hate, Beer28, whether they are aware of it or not.
    As does Beer, we better not remind him of that otherwise he might make it official and start screaming 'Linux Power! Linux Power!'

    Karim did, and he should put some money behind it.


    Maybe I’m just blind... but I cannot find anywhere in this thread where he said such a thing... care to enlighten the group?

    I didn't say next business, I said next name. Please, if you are going to poke holes in arguments made against you... at least be accurate in your reading!
