Explanation: RE "Since neither Linux or Windows XP have UAC, I am not sure where your complaint lies."
Since neither this thread or the one I link to are about Linux or WinXP, my complaint therefor lies with Win7 and as regards specifically as to this
thread, its IE8 [Note both are MicroSoft [MS] products]!
Now as RE: "Could you also highlight bad buildings bad architects,"
I could throw you a raft of real bad buildings and their architects and I just have to point out the recent case of Haiti to show that 1] building on
Alluvial soil over a major transverse fault line was a very bad lack of oversight! 2] Having built on earthquake prone geology they DIDN'T earthquake
proof the buildings they did build!
Look!, even modern China with its highly regulated society and HARSH reprisals for "Screwing THE Peoples Republic STATE of China" had to ask
questions about its building codes and the CORRUPTION involved, after its tragic earthquake early last year!
Now let uslook at a Idolized building that is actually #snip [expletive deleted by author] and is still standing! I'll start with my own backyard
here and so here is The Sydney Opera House. [wiki]
You will PLEASE Note that the building was SUPPOSED to be an ACOUSTIC Masterpiece! Its NOT! Here from the wiki souce is just SOME of the reasons
"Utzon's plywood corridor designs, and his acoustic and seating designs for the interior of both major halls, were scrapped completely. His design
for the Concert Hall was rejected as it only seated 2000, which was considered insufficient. Utzon employed the acoustic consultant Lothar Cremer,
and his designs for the major halls were later modelled and found to be very good. The subsequent Todd, Hall and Littlemore versions
of both major halls have some problems with acoustics, particularly for the performing musicians. The orchestra pit in the Opera Theatre is cramped
and dangerous to musicians' hearing. The Concert Hall has a very high roof, leading to a lack of early reflections onstage—perspex rings (the
"acoustic clouds") hanging over the stage were added shortly before opening in an (unsuccessful) attempt to address this problem.[citation
Please IGNORE anything that IS NOT CITED OK!
So the Lothar Cremer, acoustics designs that were modelled as good are out and so are high roof reflections, BUT citation No#20 is IN and that clearly
shows BAD ACOUSTIC DESIGN! This is the Architects FAULT! Accurate Oversight IS IMPORTANT and Utzon lost his Oversight when he resigned!
I have a raft of links lined up to back this up but I'll move on to more computer related examples so as to not derail this thread.
Starting with Software, Win7 had months and months of testing in the Wild[erness sanctuary] and the UAC problem didn't manifest until after its
Was this because the testers were sanction by M$?
Its about the $'s remember and even FREE bad advertising IS FREE ADVERTISING and makes somebody [i.e. M$ and/or the M$M etc.] somewhere some $$$'s.
Then there was the Win7 "Black Screen of DEATH!" farce!
And now a security debarcle with IE8!
And shall we take a look at the hardware issues that have PLAGUED us since FOREVER? I'll just use the faulty "bulging" [tech jargon] capacitors on
motherboards etc. that were the bane of users world wide.
Don't get me started on Firmware as you'll never hear the freaking end of it!
Personal Disclosure: WTF?
Your post HERE
makes EXACTLY the point I am
making! Which is THEY DIDNT DO IT RIGHT IN THE 1st PLACE! :shk:
Who is this THEY? THEY, are those who you pay your $'s TO FIX the #snip made by the EXACT SAME CORRUPT
P.S. Oh thats right...its not your $'s ...those $'s belong to the defacto NWO state just like we all do!
Edited emoticon fail due to oh thats right...lack of oversight!
