The Joker Behind the Signetics 25120 Write-Only Memory Chip Hoax

AbRASiON Re:Second story on that site (100 comments)

I've dealt with the moderator people at Wikipedia myself. Thanks to that experience, I'll never ever donate to the Wikipedia foundation. They may as well just stop sending the ads - because I'm not interested.

Blade Runner 2 Script Done, Harrison Ford Says "the Best Ever"

AbRASiON Fuck what Harrison Ford says (299 comments)

I loved the shit out of that man as a kid, teenager and early adult.
Then I listened to several of his interviews, his passion for film is virtually "show me the money" when it came to Indy 4, I recall him pimping it, I also recall him saying "ahh they'll fix shit in editing / post" kind of stuff. He hates the Han Shot first stuff and he frankly, comes off as a phony to me.

Loved him in SW and the (only) 3 Indy movies made but the man isn't exactly into the universes of the films he creates.
Don't believe me? Go seek out some of the interviews in the last 15 years.

Seagate Bulks Up With New 8 Terabyte 'Archive' Hard Drive

AbRASiON Re:Shingled encoding performance penalties (219 comments)

I would suspect most disks used in this size range would be without much I/O, infact I'd go as far as to say (for me personally) fuck regular disks for high I/O. I'm still flabberghasted they sell 7200rpm HDD's for the desktop

If you want performance, just buy an SSD or SSHD.

I'd be happy with about 6 of these in my FreeNAS machine, I'm sure 6 combined would still turn over a decent data rate.

The Sony Pictures Hack Was Even Worse Than Everyone Thought

AbRASiON Re:Sad? Saddest? (528 comments)

Really, a rootkit done once, a decade ago by some idiot in Sony music? Massive losses, more jobs lost, more people out of work, this economy even worse.

Hopefully they fix their security, behave better as a company and no one loses jobs, Hopefully idiot posts like yours don't come to fruition either.

The Sony Pictures Hack Was Even Worse Than Everyone Thought

AbRASiON Re:100 terabytes of data - a few movies? (528 comments)

Some of the rumoured files were financial data - even stuff like "Diaz - Cameron - Passport.PDF" for goodness sakes.
More info is on one of the reddit threads but it's apparently VERY nasty.

Firefox 34 Arrives With Video Chat, Yahoo Search As Default

AbRASiON Re:Blatent memory leaks continue. (237 comments)

That's an extreme case and I certainly don't use tabs as bookmarks, I have thousands of those.
Regardless anonymous dipshit, the program USED to handle 150 tabs fine, 6 or 7 YEARS ago.

Married Woman Claims Facebook Info Sharing Created Dating Profile For Her

AbRASiON Re:Occams razor says this girl is lying (189 comments)

Just a piece of advice- my personal profile is locked down you can't go to facebook.com/username and see my profile, you can't search for me. IF you're not logged in.

IF you're logged in though? Different story, even if you do not know me at all (I have a 'spare account') you can see my profile pic, profile name, background image etc.
These companies might have look "zooskscraper" accounts that can see that bit more than a truly anonymous one. - Worth considering.

Married Woman Claims Facebook Info Sharing Created Dating Profile For Her

AbRASiON Re:Occams razor says this girl is lying (189 comments)

Well if you've set the info to open and something else scrapes it, then it's a, your fault for leaving too much info open but also b, the fault of the dating site - not facebook.

I wouldn't be surprised if some sleazier companies did this - but facebook probably don't need to stoop that low, yet.

Facebook are a bunch of shady assholes, I bet Zoosk are too - but dude, please apply Occams razor here, as if they just 'make' people a profile - bullshit.
She's made one, got busted and is freaking out, simple as that.

Mozilla's 2013 Report: Revenue Up 1% To $314M; 90% From Google

Sorry, I'd feel like I'm doing myself a disservice by not hassling you.
P.S The stability is getting better again but the performance goes to the utter shitter with 100 tabs, memory usage is bananas (I'm ok with that, to an extent) but it feels like a leak, not actually using the memory efficiently.

AbRASiON Missing option in the list: Me! (236 comments)

How could you all be so insensitive and closed minded? Very disappointed, I thought slashdot was a progressive site with knowledge of most of the technology available today?

Ars Dissects Android's Problems With Big Screens -- Including In Lollipop

AbRASiON Re:Is anyone surprised? (103 comments)

Mod this guy up, he's bang on.
New google maps, less features than existing google maps
Newer gmail - instead of a single, priority inbox, regular mailbox division ON A SINGLE PAGE, let's make the user check multiple tabs.
Android phone, change the menu button to a soft roaming button, could move anywhere on the screen, no longer in a consistent location
Android / other google products, stop labelling icons and make them textless, sure it saves you fucking translation time but it's /annoying as fuck/ for the users who don't know what the buttons do, I thank the fucking gods I don't work on technical support anymore, I would be 19'th level, earth destroying ropable if I had to guide users to textless icons for fucks sake.

Yep, going the dishes with a podcast is like night and day difference for me. I can endure a substantial amount of housecleaning with podcasts that I simply couldn't before.

Slashdot recently saw a review from Hexus.net here http://hardware.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/07/ 16/1257226 which seemed quite positive for the device, however Harold has had some more issues with it, specifically in regards to hooking it up to a Windows domain and decided to share those with us.

Since home storage is beggining to boom for those of us collecting movies / music and other such large quantities of data, perhaps another opinion on this device would be of use for those of us who were considering this device or perhaps similar solutions.
Feel free to discuss any other NAS solutions in this topic as I'm certainly in the process of hunting around myself and wouldn't mind some feedback from the rest of the /. crowd."
