Fixing China's Greenhouse Gas Emissions For Them

AgNO3 China is not very high on the pre capita list. (322 comments)

China produces less CO2 per person the most of the rest of the industrial world. Why do you guys go bash on Luxembourg who is 9th on the list. Tax those CO2 producing jerks. China is in the 50's on the per capita list. What do you expect them to reduce? Now Sulfur Dioxide is a whole other ball of acidy wax.

Fixing China's Greenhouse Gas Emissions For Them

AgNO3 Re:Yes, good idea. (322 comments)

and where did you get these per capita numbers? The US isn't even in the top 10. Why don't you go rail on Luxembourg who is 9 on the list of per capital CO2 emissions. China is like way down in the 50's and the US is 12th. Australia is above the US as is the falkland islands. Its pretty stupid to talk about total emissions and compare 300,000,000 people with say the UK at 75,000,000. In fact Canada is only about 2% behind the US in per capita emissions.

Shrinking Waves May Save Antarctic Sea Ice

AgNO3 Re: "and climate change deniers tout that" (298 comments)

Yeah see I would never now any of that. I just see mit and like most people who have lives I cant do a background check on everyone. But everyone is taking money from someone with an agenda. Musk discounts fuel cell on mas. Japan disagrees and is going full bore on fuel cell. So do I believe the guy who has a public company who is profit driven or the other car company that is profit driven? Do I believe the paper by the researcher looking for funding and tenure or the crazy guy who can say what he wants because he has tenure and doent need to have the same opinion as the institution. There have been studies on the heard mentalli8 that exist in institutional reseach as non tenure researchers tend to not want to rock the boat. Doesnt make them wrong but there is yen and yang on the who is reliable and who is not.

AgNO3 Re: "and climate change deniers tout that" (298 comments)

There are scientists of note that do not agree with the consensus. I dont know what they believe or why but when their studies are exclude I see all the other times the consensus was wrong. Im not in the club I dont know what their opposing science is but it's not just religious people that have a view contrary to the group. Is this Richard Lendzen MIT dude not at all respectable?

Mental Illness Reduces Lifespan As Much as Smoking

AgNO3 Re:An opinion from a layman (192 comments)

100% Yes agree with that. If you have a mental illness you are the biggest outcast ever. If you last 5 limbs you have a better chance of people treating you better then those that have a variety of mental illnesses.

DEA Program "More Troubling" Than NSA

AgNO3 Re: Joking about serious things? (432 comments)

Whats does that have to do with his exageration. He did agree we might be the most violent today. But I would bet the spanish and brits the most violent of the past 500 years easy. The problems in the middle east are a diect result of british conquer and divide stratgy. The borders of most of the middle east are britsh meandering.

How Newegg Saved Online Retail

AgNO3 Re:I don't trust new egg anymore (259 comments)

If it wasn't newegg that was hacked and it was in my opinion. Then why wasn't the card used at other places? The only saving grace is that the card data is encrypted better then their user data. So if they where hacked and they got user log in with accounts that have cards attached they would only be able to purchase via Newegg but not have access to the actual card number. How if newegg wasn't hacked did they use my account with my passwords. They didn't just guess my password I guaranty.

How Newegg Saved Online Retail

AgNO3 I don't trust new egg anymore (259 comments)

Wait the same newegg that I believe was Hacked around Christmas time and refuses to acknowledge even though I had to call then 3 times to ask why I kept getting failed purchases to my NewEGG account for a bad CCV. But they had all my account info correct beyond that? I wouldn't buy free shit from them ever again.

Valve Reveals Gaming Headset, Teases Big Picture

AgNO3 buh didn't they prove VR headsets BAD Idea (151 comments)

"What happened to 3D Virtual Reality? Do you remember in the mid-90s when virtual reality headsets were going to be the next big thing? Do you wonder why the whole technology just sort of went away? VR pioneer Mark Pesce has spilled the goods. Audioholics was able to contact Mr. Pesce via Twitter where he answered a few questions for us regarding his work with Sega and the mysterious disappearance of its VR project. Over 15 years ago, Mark Pesce worked with Sega on its VR Headset, which was intended to plug into the Sega set-top-box. The headset was going to provide gamers with a virtual reality 3D environment. Of course Sega wasn’t the only one developing a VR headset at the time, and we all expected to be running around in 3D environments when graphics evolved beyond chunky wireframes of the early VR visuals. We thought the technology was just around the corner. With a working VR Headset almost ready for market, Sega had the product tested by a third party lab, the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) at Palo Alto California - the results weren’t pretty. The lab at Stanford came back to Sega with dire warnings about the hazards of prolonged use of this technology. SRI warned Sega: "

AgNO3 AgNO3 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

AgNO3 (878843) writes "Autodesk now owns all 3 of the Major 3d apps. While Modo, Lightwave and Cinema 4d are players they have no where near the share that the 3 apps Autodesk now owns have. Maya, 3d Max, and Softimage XSI are the Major players for 3d in Movies, TV and Games.

Autodesk announcement

Avid Technology, Inc. announced that they have signed a definitive agreement for Autodesk to acquire substantially all of the assets of Avid's Softimage business unit for approximately $35 million."

"A day after it returned to NASDAQ (under a new stock ticker) SGI has filed suit against ATI claiming patent infringement. SGI claims ATI violated patent number 6,650,327, "Display system having floating point rasterization and floating point framebuffering", which was filed in 1998 and granted in 2003, in its Radeon graphics cards." The SGI take on this can be found at SGI site linked below.

Wow, maybe SGI shouldn't have submitting to NVIDIA and sold off their best stuff to Microsoft in the first place."
