It looks like you're trying to commit arson. Would you like some help with that?

The outlook in Greece sure doesn't look good.

It's hard for an economy to excel under such difficult conditions.

If it's Windows 8 related, give us a call and we'll nuke it from orbit.

If it was Windows 8 related, it would have been entirely justified.

Was their office somewhere in the metro area ?
 
2012-06-27 08:55:37 AM
I think from now on, the workers at that location will need a security entourage.

2) select solution\build
3) Error: null pointer to foot. Flaming bullet sets fire to office.

"Hey, our economy sucks, so let's burn down the office of one of the companies that could offer a lot of jobs."

Why do Europeans go into full retard mode when it comes to economic crisis?

It's easy to understand, the Greeks just don't have the access they need. Any publisher like Microsoft is going to struggle

If the Greeks would only exchange the euro for another currency, that might help in the long run.

I agree. That would probably open several new windows of opportunity for economic growth.

They had to restart the fire 3 times before it worked properly.

I'm sure these misguided Greeks were just trying to share their point of view.

But do they have access to those type of resources?

You think sitting through them is bad? I have to make them for technologically inept people for a living despite PDF's becoming way better for that sort of thing.

I, for one, think we need to see sharp changes in the situation in Greece.

Have they tried rebooting the economy and making sure it's plugged in?

It probably wasn't retarted. Some political parties, particularly in Greece, wants chaos and anarchy. The more despair, poverty and dimn outlooks, the better the nazis and communists look to people.

Ok, the nazis and communists are retarded in a broader way, but setting fire to stuff does further their agenda.

Apparently the Greeks finally read Dr. Dan Geer's "Cyberinsecurity: The Cost of Monopoly" (2003). Typically, instead of discussing things they went all Leonidas on Micrcosoft and just burned the place down.
