Microsoft Joins SOPA/PIPA Protest, Windows Will Go Black Today


HUMOR: Microsoft may have been an official supporter of SOPA, but the company has had a change of heart last night when they noticed the historical opposition of SOPA.
According to our well-placed sources in Microsoft Steve Ballmer was upset that Microsoft is not doing enough. "We set a goal 3 years ago that we would do exactly what Google does. They are getting all the limelight today for protesting against SOPA/PIPA and look at us. We need to do something."
Ballmer reportedly threw a chair at the PR team for not doing enough.

The technical team of Microsoft came up with a solution. "We did not have to do much and it will have deeper impact than Wikileak's blackout. According to our funded survey 10 people visit Wikipedia every 30 seconds compare that with Windows BSoD (Blue Screen of Death). There are 30 BSoDs every 10 seconds, around the globle. This is a massive power and we can exploit it."


Microsoft is pushing a patch today which will turn the color of BSoD from blue to black and a message will flash:

Fatal Error: STOPSOPAPIPA
"Technically it's not black screen of death so we can't call it blackout, it's blueout," said an un-named developer.

If you are using Windows please update your system. If you are using GNU/Linux, please install Windows to join the protest.

I had an old pair of glasses -- they were fine. I got new glasses from this place and it has ruined my life. Reading causes huge headaches. Driving is hard. Working requires me to take off glasses and move computer screen around. If you are young and your glasses prescription is easy, this is probably an okay place, If you are older, they can really ruin your life (they pretend to care but they really don't care). Edit: Thanks for the response. Unfortunately I didn't see it because of the way Google puts my activity at the top of the reviews. I have already gotten rid of the progressive lenses. I was told they were not made properly and also that I do not need them. I don't know if the new glasses will be any better -- but I will update this when I get them. Edit: I finally got my new glasses from a different place -- and it seems to be true that I did not need progressive lenses. Yes, I can't read up close as well as I used to but with the correct prescription (one lens was off) and things adjusted properly -- everything is fine. I ordered a pair of computer glasses -- but I don't really think I even need those. I think the problem is that if you come back and complain about progressive lenses people just dismiss you because they think you need more time to get used to them. But I don't complain that easily. The glasses I got had a lot of problems. So I hope this helps. I would suggest if someone comes in and complains about their glasses, ask them to close each eye and see if one of the lenses seems wrong - and then retest them if it does. Maybe I should have been more persistent -- but I did come back twice to try and resolve the problem.
