APORKALYPSE

Where are the Meme Police when you need them?

BACON EXPLOSION!
Crazy Goddamned Fucking Pig

More ridiculous pics at the source, which is of course a UK paper. So it's apparently really a dog or something.

Chinese urbanites turning into panic-stricken crowd when they fail to recognise a common Chinese pet? Oh those amusingly ignorant bizarre Orientals!

Writers for the Daily Fail know their audience. Even poor fuckers stuck in the UK need someone they can feel superior to.

Ah, yes, those inscrutable English folks, with their tea and their plangent, plaintive songs... who can tell what goes on in their alien minds?

They don't put the same value on human life as we do.

Also: The laptop Firefox was automatically (i.e. without my approval) updated to 13.0.

While bitching about no more screengrab, look what I ran across.

P.S. One of the reviews...

WARNING: Don't install the screengrab (fix version) by Alexander, he's a shady Russian hacker. Who has domains registered in China.

Nonetheless, I downloaded it and it works.

Unfortunately, you have a functional screencap program and Alexander has the title to your car...

...domains registered in China .... talk about inscrutable

I have one computer I do a smidge of banking on, and I do no more finance than that. Everything else at worst has passwords to free stuff. So malware is not much of a concern to me on those. Maybe some Estonian will be posting the goatse here one day.

Good god, that is one nightmarish-looking dog. Why on earth would these creatures be expensive? You'd think they'd have trouble finding these freaks of nature homes.

Having used FF 13.0 for almost half a day, I can say that it's better than Chrome.

It appears that Mr. McGravitas (IF that is his real name) was right.

A dog with a Billy Idol haircut?

firefox occasionally freezes my computer requiring a restart.

If not for the extension functionality and the BBEdit tag automation, I'd be back at Safari.

??? That's drastic. That seems to me more like something Flash could do rather than Firefox. I recommend the holy trinity of AdBlock Plus and Flashblock and NoScript. Elements on webpages will be doing a lot less fucking around with your processes.

I'd stay away from Safari because that's the attack source for Macs; the bad people are targeting mom and pop, who use what the system comes with.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I've already got Adblock and Flashblock.

Although now that I think of it, it is in roughly the same time as when I installed Flashblock..... maybe I'll try disabling that.

Substance McGravitas said...

Flashblock hardly does anything. I'd be very surprised if that was the problem.

Substance McGravitas said...

Now that I think of it the last really catastrophic crash I got out of Firefox Was from this. The Firefox PDF plugin is not so hot; I route most PDFs to Preview at home.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Flashblock hardly does anything. I'd be very surprised if that was the problem.

because it was only occasional, I will only know that if it happens again, it WASN'T Flashblock's fault.

Yeah, pdfs go to Preview for me too. Or if I care to force them into Acrobat, but who wants that?

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

it was aggravating because I couldn't even force quit out of the problem, but everything went into permanent hold.

It was like I was using Windows or something.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

it was something in Firefox, definitely, whether a plug in or not. It would happen when a new page was loading and then ....fzzzzt!

Substance McGravitas said...

Was it Bouffant's page? HA HA.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

SOMETIMES IT WAS YOURS.

Substance McGravitas said...

Oh poo.

vacuumslayer said...

Omg. Crashed my browser SO MANY TIMES.

mikey said...

I gotta say I admire the patience exhibited in this thread. I'm sure those proprietary OSs have so much good stuff in them that the regular crashes, blue screens and reboots are well worth it. AND you get to pay for them!

I can't remember the last time Ubuntu or Fedora crashed. You see, everyone on the planet can parse the code and look for problems and weaknesses. And if something weird does get in there, there's this ARMY of programmers all over the world who can't wait to fix it. For FREE.

No, no. I'm sure you guys have all sorts of important reasons why you've just GOTTA stick to the MegaCorp™ Operating System, and that's fine - it doesn't seem to reduce the availability of free, stable, small footprint, advanced OSs for me. Please continue.

Oh. Don't forget to download and install all those patches. You know what might happen if you don't...

Mikey is the Thundra of OS battles.

mikey said...

I like to think I'm more mocking, and less angry...

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

mikey, as I've said before, I have several mission-critical commercial apps that have no open-source equivalents. There simply are no industrial-level Linux CAD equivalents. I just can't make do.

Also, don't get the wrong idear. When I say my computer crashed, the remarkable thing here is that it crashed at all. Normally, OS X just shrugs off the offending software, tells you Adobe fucked up, and asks you whether you really want to give it another go. The only reason I even talked about it is because it is unusual in the first place. it was like three times in the last month. And I never really actually shut down my computer.

And the sweetest thing is that those few times it happened, when I restarted, the computer restored all my open apps and documents, at the point at which the Bad Thing happened.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

dammit, mikey, I will get in a spitting fight with YOU too. I'LL TAKE ON BOTH YOU AND THUNDER AT ONCE! I HAVE MULTIPLE SHOVELS!!!

Substance McGravitas said...

I haven't tried them all, but I haven't seen a Linux as cool as OS X. And this idea that that you have to pay for that is going by the wayside.

Mind you I think 10.8 is another step towards lockdown.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

yeah, I agree about that. I was always on the side that "Apple will be as heinous as Microsoft if they ever get the power". Just that when people were saying that, nobody ever thought it would happen.

Having said that, I use my closed ecosystem iOS devices as much as my computer, and with less hassle.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I have an old Macbook that dual-boots into Windows 7 or Ubuntu, and I have parallels running Ubuntu on this very box.

Just that whenever I run them, I am always kind of looking back to find the apps that I rely on.

I know, I am a hopeless supporter of the commercial vampires. But I do what I do, and I just want the tools that help me do that.

Sometimes, that means spending some money on a shovel.

Substance McGravitas said...

When the lockdown happens I imagine the freebies I like will start drying up. Maybe Apple will make the key to getting on the system an easy thing for developers to do, but it's unlikely. Since the baflling wonderfulness of free XCode and other developer goodies they've been drawing back.
