Tis sad...

Saturday, August 25, 2007
This morning, my sister e-mailed me a link to a story about someone hacking the iPhone.

My reply: Windows WGA Validation Server Goes Down

I've noticed.... Democrats and Mac Lovers are very similar in this area:
they never miss a chance to take a pot-shot at the one they hate... (Bush / PC's)

lol

EXCUSE me...

THE PC lover e-mailed me first, about a petty thing like getting the iPhone unlocked.

I posted about the entire network of Windows computers going down because of a fault at Microsoft....

This isn't a "pot-shot," this is a huge problem. Yes, Democrats like to take "pot-shots," but saying that we have not found any WMDs in Iraq is NOT a pot-shot, neither is this.

BTW, your post offends me (if you couldn't tell).

it offends me, too

there ARE good Democrats just as there are ok PC lovers. We Mac people are just soooooooo much more laid back than the over-the-top-oh-my-gawd-if-you-don't-LOVE-the-PC-you-just-don't-even-EXIST-on-this-planet PC people.

Maybe that is because when you ARE superior (like the Mac), you don't have to spout your garbage like "they" do.

And I don't HATE Bush - I hate his politics and they way he runs our beautiful country..

PS

someone who is going to be preaching from a pulpit soon needs to get used to NOT making vast generalizations like that. It tends to upset people VERY quickly :>) :>)

and I said that in ALL honesty and love - caz you know 'yur mama' loves you more than anyone else!!

Yeah, I have to agree whole-heartedly with Kat that this isn't a "pot-shot." This is one more piece of evidence that the problem is not with the PC, it's with Windows. The PC could be far superior to the MAC (yes, in all-caps, just for Kat ;-) in every way, if only stupid people would quit going with the first OS that's pushed at them. I have to admit, however, that there's not a real competitor to Windows. OSX is too proprietary and Linux (and its variants) aren't proprietary enough. Thus, the least crappy OS pulls ahead.

you all have me roflmao.

Apparently my email was misunderstood (for more sympathy on misunderstood artists, ask my husband).

For the record, I wasn't taking a "shot" at anything. I just thought it was cool that this 17 year old was able to hack something a whole team of people (who probably have big degrees and are getting well paid) tried to prevent him from hacking. That's all. I would have sent you the news if the same thing happened on a Motorola or World of Warcraft.

Didn't mean to get so many people up in a tizzy...

Talk badly about Microsoft all you want: it won't offend me - I'm a laid back kind of girl.

The latest news:
"Teen Who Hacked iPhone Trades It for 'Sweet' New Car"
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,294901,00.html

According to the article, he has spent 8 hours a day since the iPhone came out (total of 500 hours) to find this hack. I think he deserves it!

I agree with swing... you guys have me laughing my butt off.. geez... it was a JOKE...

my gosh, don't get your feathers ruffled so easily...

I'm not saying democrats are good/bad, I am just saying they take shots at bush.

I'm not saying mac lovers are good or bad, I'm just saying they take shots at PC's (aka Matthew's constant 'that wouldn't happen if you had a MAC')..

geez... lighten up!!

I feel like Kory who got yelled from people after he said in a sermon if he won the lottery he would move to the beach in California... people asked him if he the church wasn't good enough for him, they asked if he didn't like his job...

geez people, lighten up! - yall are all so funny!
