MIT Considers Whether Courses Are Outdated

AgNO3 Re:Idiots (205 comments)

Lionsgate Sues Limetorrents, Played.to, and Others Over Expendables 3 Leak

AgNO3 Re: The Double Standard (207 comments)

No dude. They took a physical thing from where it belonged without permission. Then they copied it. The 500 or so people that worked on it not withstanding the productio. Company is publicly traded and probably has more then a few 401k invested in them because of the previous 2 movies return on investment. So know the movie has less value will generate less return and your dad is going to have to blow other men in the park because to make up the difference in what the movie would predictably have made. See thats why its a crime. Because not only rich people own stocks in companies like lions gate, warnwr etc... but you go with that its not hurting anyone argument and frame it next to your participation medal.

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.

Autodesk buys another 3d amination package

AgNO3 AgNO3 writes  |  more than 5 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."
