Uber CEO: We'll Run Your Errands

3.5 stripes Re:Uber Fresh? (139 comments)

Considering that many people who'd like to visit the liquor store might have already had something to drink, wouldn't you like to encourage sober drivers to obtain and deliver that alcohol?

It's just as lethal as regular ebola, what you've created is something more "infectious".

Invasion of Ukraine Continues As Russia Begins Nuclear Weapons Sabre Rattling

Nothing personal, but you tend to view things that support your views with less scrutiny than ones that do not.. ie; the guy asking a question at the school was a plant, this guy is obviously telling the truth.. why shouldn't they both be treated with the same suspicion, after all, they're both russian?

Law Repressing Social Media, Bloggers Now In Effect In Russia

3.5 stripes Re:This is what the Republicans want for all of us (167 comments)

WTF are you talking about? The Democrats would have to cross over a lot of right wing territory, the great expanses of moderate, and a good bit of the socialist mountains before ending up anywhere near communism.

Just because they're not as right wing as you'd like in no way makes them communists of any stripe.

US Army To Transport American Ebola Victim To Atlanta Hospital From Liberia

3.5 stripes Re:What an idiot you are (409 comments)

Herp and derp, doctors in african countries in makeshift hospitals should have access to all sorts of sanitary facilities, just like in the CDC!

Look, I managed to counter your argument without seeking refuge in ad hominem, you pinheaded microphallic butt sniffer!

US Army To Transport American Ebola Victim To Atlanta Hospital From Liberia

3.5 stripes What a bunch of pansies (409 comments)

The disease is not particularly communicable. It tends to externalize a lot of bodily fluids, which is why in places with poor sanitary conditions, it spreads pretty quickly. Hospitals which handle patients like these tend not to be considered poor sanitary conditions..

The Oculus Rift DK2: In-Depth Review (and Comparison To DK1)

3.5 stripes Re:Been playing with one for a month or so.. (54 comments)

Project Morpheus isn't a VR headset? That must be why it tracks head motion, and allows you to look around in stereoscopic "3D".. search for project morpheus on google images, and it's exactly what's two desks to my left.

It still has the DK1 style blurring issues, the DK2 is much better in that respect. The integration of the move controllers is nice, but it's a software thing, nothing to do with the headset.

The Oculus Rift DK2: In-Depth Review (and Comparison To DK1)

3.5 stripes Re:Been playing with one for a month or so.. (54 comments)

I'm slightly more partial to the occulus, basically because it fits on my face much better, and gives a much more complete feeling of immersion. The image quality on both is really nice (possibly slightly more real on the occulus), but I haven't really had a chance to do anything besides see tech demos, and setting up the Morpheus was a right PITA.

Unfortunately, my job isn't a VR headset tester, so I haven't been able to spend hours on end with them, and when they're out and in use, people seem to want to give it a go, further limiting the time :)

The Oculus Rift DK2: In-Depth Review (and Comparison To DK1)

3.5 stripes Been playing with one for a month or so.. (54 comments)

If you'd like I can describe the hardware issue it has if you don't believe me.

To start, the image quality is much better, and the camera makes the immersion much more impressive, as does the frame dropping (persistence of vision).

It's still hard to find software that does much with it, hopefully that changes with more people getting theirs..

We also have the sony one, though it makes the occulus look tiny by comparison, it does glow blue..

Western US States Using Up Ground Water At an Alarming Rate

So, they're not lowest say 10 feet, and are at their highest in ten years, say 12 feet, but what if 25 years ago they were 15 feet?

A decade is a really short period of time for weather/water levels/ etc.
