  1. Users recently noticed that Google's mobile search stopped serving up unfiltered search results, and a flood of complaints to the company's support forums followed. Earlier this week, many mobile users found that they could no longer turn off SafeSearch, which blocks web pages containing explicit sexual content, when searching with Google, according to

    An Uplifting Experience........

    Is this comparable to way "Facebook", "accidentally tried to kill, "Lamebook""?

    Try this instead; Get 2 desktops with your porn collection mirrored, place one monitor in the horizontal, (landscape) orientation, the other monitor, (2nd desktop) in the vertical, (portrait) orientation, then run the same slide show on both. This insures each picture will be viewed full frame, regardless if it's portrait or landscape positioned. This may not be for the married, or for that matter, feint of heart.

    Oh, and be sure to grab IPS panels, to ensure maximum viewing enjoyment.

    Yeah well, they'll be out to take a picture of your house, have a shill put it on Facebook, say rude things about you, then "unfriend" you.

    @Captain...

    Does 2x 22" Viewsonic VA2216W-4's @ 1680x1050 pixels each count! :D

    Though I'm afraid to say my 500GB porn collection had to go so I could move my full time Linux install off of my SSD.....

    Though I now have my favourites in cloud storage... Such a cool use for it! :haha:

    Wow, It's raining Cats and Secretions......

    This sentence is leading me to believe you have a 500GB SSD....... That notwithstanding, this is why God invented mechanical HDDS, big ones. I think it was perhaps on the 9th or 10th day. Right after Adam and Eve, "got their first room", so to speak.
    Wow, you just never know what's in "rainwater" nowadays.

    @Captain...

    No, my Hitachi disk (500GB) was full to the brim, but with all the games I've been installing (and purhasing) lately, I only had 20 something GB left in my W7 parition (around 110GB). So I've moved my Linux over to the Hitachi disk now, and given my W7 install the whole SSD back. I've now got 158GB free, which is much better! :haha:

    I fancy a 2TB or 3TB disk anyway, and I might even purchase a BarracudaXT or whatever it is for Linux yet.

    I thought we knew what was in the rain water... trace amounts of Chernobyl's nuclear fallout, and plenty of pollution and acid, more fallout from industries present and goneby. ;)

    but seriously that's so so sad, not being able to search for porn
     
  13. To some people, Google IS the internet. They literally cannot function without going to Google for their shopping/porn needs. Nevermind that big address bar up top. What's that for?

    I think they call that,"the third date". Or at least that's the way it should be.

    May be he was thinking about porn using 3D capabilities of modern GPUs, I wonder which rendering engine developers would want to use for that though; it may deliver all the porn he needs and more, and from all the different angles; I wonder why game industry haven't thought of that lol

    Not 'alf...It's obviously a human right to search for the "dirty foulness", i mean, it's what the internet was invented for right?...XD

    Indeed, in fact if you're a "loose constructionist" of the US constitution, then porn is one of those, "certain inalienable rights endower upon us by our creator"!

    The logic is inescapable! God invented sex, and therefore "endowed" us with the ability to, in turn, to create pornography...!

    However, in the "endowment" portion of the equation, it becomes painfully obvious that, "some men are more equal than others".... :confused:

    OK Arch...I'm painfully aware of what he was thinking. Hopefully, everybody will expect, "devolpers" to provide a comprehensive electronic sex substitute for everybody on the planet. Then, in a generation or two, we'll have mercifully "non-bred" ourselves out of existence...!

    So then, I'll revise my original reply to, "license27kill", to this; "why not yank your hand out of your pants, hit the power button on your current girlfriend, and go experience sex in "5S", (sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell)"?

    Oh, and if the reboot takes more time that you feel you have to spare, irritates you, or makes you feel compelled to start a thread about it, then use standby.

    Poor Captain, his sarcasm and wit was left unnoticed... because after all, porn is serious business. =(

    edit: the new post comment script is cool.

    I was so angry when I could not look at porn on my phone, i was forced to switch to the desktop version of the site on my mobile. Madness I know. They have got some nasty emails from me!

    I think Google did the wrong thing for the right reasons. I'm sure they were just trying to prevent people from masturbating all over their cell phones in commuter trains nationwide.

    Its a good point... Handset users need to take every precaution not to set off the moisture indicators inside the mobile phone. That'll void ya warranty!! :haha:

    @Benny26 Actually, the first browser (Mosaic?) was written at the University of Illinois, a branch of my alma mater, and their motivation WAS to display porn.

    hee hee..Well, you learn something new everyday don't' ya. I like the thought that a man with his thinking in his pants at some point in life had the skills and means to create something (that would become so important later) to the way of life for most people...:D....Unless it was a woman, now that would be a shocker.
