Probably not a good thing to give the script kiddie any ideas.

I think the point was that it was a *bad* program, not just a fork bomb

There's a problem amiss here.

And in one thread he was threatening another member because he wasn't strictly following his blog's "Code of Conduct", even though the thread had nothing to do with his blog.

I must be missing something here...

Why would someone actually run a blog with sub-comments on LQ? That's like a forum inside a blog inside a forum, ad nauseum.

Excessive recursion, I think
Maybe he should go get a blog. Spaces provides them for free

I'm bored.

So uh...

Yeah Linux vs Windows...

Well the advantage to Windows is they brighten up my house, allow me to see outside, get some fresh air...
Just like the software counterpart it also allows crooks and robbers to rob me blind...
I also hate how you have to pay for it when somebody breaks your Windows. And the darn blinds aren't very customizable; all anything ever does is cover them up.
I got 7 new Windows this year, but had to pay a ridiculously large amount to get the Ultimate editions even though those features should come standard... Eventually the Bill became so high I had to nix the idea of my majestic yard Gates and reconcile my woes by reading my favorite Peanuts character Linus. And I just sold my old monolithic truck for one of those new hybrids, unfortunately I spilled a whole bunch of kernels in it and used the car phone to make a system call to the manufacturer, turns out the clean up was free. They were very open about where the source of their income was and I was suprised. The nice man also had a very large Red Hat, I think it was an old school Fedora... My luck I accidentally BASHed my new car into some Ware house and got the incident recorded in the local Registry. The soft leather seats were Micro-sized anyway so it was uncomfortable. After all this today, I popped in a CD and made a BATCH of cookies. My mother always sed that chocolate relaxes the soul anyway. I made a trip to MACdonalds and then came home and worked on my DEL laptop and went to sleep.

(This is obviously a satire....... I just made it up so yeah xD. Boredom leads to this.)

^ That's not gonna work...most sites have protection measures against that kind of thing. Besides, if you really wanted to launch a DoS attack on microsoft.com, you'd need a lot more than just one machine to do it (i.e. botnet).

You could explain why the continued posting(s) of poor netiquette to members here on LQ.

That would never fly!

Plus violates LQ Rules.

The bing search engine

Hi,
If the Microsoft OS is so good why is their search engine still using Linux?

Can you proof that (or tell us where you got this information from)? I mean, they could run windows on their servers if they always have fallback servers for crashes... Whatever, just an idea^^
