The first major hack to SONY came two weeks after they laid off their security people. what a coincidence. And this malware was targeted... It doesn't take much to see that it's been a long running inside job from people who were once SONY security people.

Amazon Goes After Oracle (Again) With New Aurora Database

0xdeaddead It's the apps, stupid! (102 comments)

Nobody buys Oracle because they need a DB, and that sounds sexy. They buy Oracle because their application needs a database, and it either ONLY runs on Oracle, or is highly recommended to run on Oracle.

And then there is Oracle commerce which I see nobody mentioning. The backend of most businesses, which shockingly needs an Oracle database.

Got some random data you want to organize? have a budget? If so MSQL, otherwise MySQL. Have a real world app? Oracle.

Ask Slashdot: Where Do You Stand on Daylight Saving Time?

we dont' do DST. It's so nice. Short time differences are the WORST to deal with. I'd rather deal with 12 hour time differences, then some 1-2 hour nonsense.

To Really Cut Emissions, We Need Electric Buses, Not Just Electric Cars

0xdeaddead Re:Container ships (491 comments)

You forget the solution that is always 'sold' to people is that they need to buy something. If we gave a shit about the environment, the big ass ships would be nuclear, and people would instead fix their old cars as making new cars is far more damaging to the environment. But that doesn't sell, and the consumer needs something to buy in.

I'm always amazed how duped the 'smart' and general public is.

But they love buying new things, Bernays was a freaking genius.

Hey, what is the deal with Openstep on virtual software?! Nextstep 3.3 run on Virtual pc with no issues, you need a serial mouse for it on vmware (and vmware costs 4x the price of vpc, so guess which one I bought),but Openstep crashes on both. Qemu gets further, but it doesnt detect the mouse....

Dammit so close! but Im stuck with 2gig partitions under Nextstep.
