The Zero Hedge Daily Round Up #123 - 10/09/2012

My computer has had some sort of major technical error every day since posting on Zero Hedge, always just before releasing another episode. Today's mayhem is inclusive of my screen turning off indefinitely, whenever a video file is openned. Plus the image in the video editor decided to turn the brightness and contrast to a merry 'zero'. How excellent. This bastard was ready well before 8pm. Now it's 8:40pm. The same goes for every other episode.

It doesn't help that I'm atheist. "Comedy and finance is a great fit", they said. I should've simply allowed the preist molest me as a child and go on to reap the future benefits of being delusional and old. I think they call it wisdom, although my psychiatrist doesn't know. He's not Jewish. 

Maybe I wouldn't be left with this appaling premise... gee, I feel like Letterman. The punchline is obscured be my arrogance and lame outlook on the typical global citizen. Any moment now... I think I see a predator drone overhead. This is the Zero Hedge Daily Round Up.

1. Obama executive order for cybersecurity. 2. Employment free 2016. 3. FBI arrest mayor of Trenton. 4. 51% admit they're American consumers. 5. Baltic dry index dries up. 6. Chevy volt stalls indefinitely. 7. 54% Germans 'nein' to ESM. 8. College degree burden. 9. $1 trillion of TARGET2 south extortion. 10. A statistic. 11. Extended last minute bulletin.

Alternatively, you can download the show as a podcast on iTunes or any RSS capable device.

Who's that retarded, as to think that this article has the primary purpose of being read? This is a page featuring a podcast you fool. It's even in the teaser. Everything else is merely eye candy. 

It's nice that you "don't even bother to read."

I'm surprised you can read at all. 

In that case, take this as a compliment.

Get a fucking Mac.

I'd rather die than pay for something grossly overpriced.

You pay for what you get.  You won't die, but you'll suffer.  Ubuntu is good.

I understand you pay for you get, my computer is 4 years old and it's taken a real beating over the years. The problem with a mac is that you pay much more than what you do get. They also mac treat you like an idiot. They don't give you the option to screw around with the settings, they just give you the easiest possible option and you have no option but to do what it says. 

Every OS and system has it's pros and cons. I'm thinking about Ubuntu, but my biggest issue is the compatibility with certain software.

You can run multiple OS's and there is virtulization.

The virtulization is hardly a solution, rather a compromise. It's laggy and etc. This is the main factor that's preventing me from switching over, it's that there are just some things you absolutely need a windows machine for.

I agree, I used to be an Arch-linux guy but went back to Ubuntu and love it. You can strip it to run a lightweight, fast, gui free setup or keep it stock and have everything Windows has.


I also don't have a lot of issues with hardware compatibility, sometimes the wireless doesn't work but you shouldn't update to the new release version until it's been in production for a few months.

Aren't there thousands of versions of Linux? Why Ubuntu as opposed to another variation?

GFKjunior's picture

Each has it own target user base and style.


Ubuntu is the most like windows, it has a massive community, you pop in the cd go through the installer and everything "just works". After the installation you have a great working environment with enough high quality tools to rival windows.


Something like Arch has a very complex installation, you don't even get an automatic installer or gui. All you have is a command line. 


Then there is everything in between, from OSX clones like pearos ( or elementaryos ( to Gentoo Hardened ( which is what most financial institutions use at their core.

Thanks for the response. I might try Ubuntu.
