Industry-Wide Smartphone "Kill Switch" Closer To Reality

Archangel Michael Re:Yay for government!!! (137 comments)

The problem isn't the name calling. It is that the name calling actually works on people too lazy to think for themselves. They get their marching orders from whatever talking point memo is out (both Left and Right wing) and march in formation.

And while I don't agree with many people politically, I at least have respect and can converse with people I don't agree with, if they at least have a reason for their political beliefs (wrong or right). I often have common ground with people I normally wouldn't agree with, because my viewpoints are reasoned, and sometimes we have the same reasons for the same views.

Above all, the drones are massive and collectively drown out the reasoned voices. And this is to our own shame!

Apache OpenOffice Reaches 100 Million Downloads. Now What?

Archangel Michael Re:LibreOffice (275 comments)

Which, means, they should be merged and brought back together.

This is the unfortunate case of Open Source failure, and a pretty big one IMHO. The fact that they remain split is huge problem, because now I cannot recommend either, even though they are both decent. I have no idea which one will actually survive and prosper, or which one will die a slow painful death. Merging them is really the only REAL solution for my concerns.

San Francisco's Housing Crisis Explained

Archangel Michael Re:The bay area used to have affordable housing (357 comments)

Actually, try changing the things that are "explanations" and you'll start to find that they are also "excuses". Offer up solutions to end the "explanations" and you'll likely get a slew of reasons why it isn't possible, mainly from the very people who profit by keeping the status quo, but have "compassion" for the plight.

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

Archangel Michael Re:Militia, then vs now (1574 comments)

If the US ARMY is doing anything against US citizens, it is proof of tyranny, as they are forbidden by current law (posse comitatus) from engaging US Citizens.

And just so you know, I oppose the militarization of law enforcement (giving police tanks and such).

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

Archangel Michael Re:Militia, then vs now (1574 comments)

I guess, if I say I am not a moron you'd still argue, so I won't.

But what I will say is that well armed citizenry can be more than just a bug to be squashed. And yes, I do think that citizens with Paramilitary grade weapons do stand a chance against militarized government agencies. All you have to do is remember what two well armed guys in Hollywood pulled off during a bank heist. Not to mention the Taliban and Iraqi militia people picking off our troops.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N...

And you've actually helped make my point, the whole point of gun control is for government to control guns. And this is the very thing I am protesting. The whole "there is no need" argument fails right here, because government will always create a "need" to have bigger better guns than citizens. And that is exactly how tyrants control their citizens.

From the sounds of it, you actually support government with big guns and likewise do not believe Tyranny can happen here. Those that do not know history, are doomed to repeat it. Sadly, those of us who do know history are too few to do anything about it.

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

Archangel Michael Re:Militia, then vs now (1574 comments)

The problem with the gun control people, is that they fail to realize that they are in fact, not against guns, per se. They are against the people (common citizens) of having guns. They are all for the government having guns.

Lets call it what it is, they don't think the common people need or deserve protection from tyrannical governments, because they mistakenly believe that their government cannot possibly be a tyranny. I would love to round up all these people and force them into "first amendment zones" where we can control their speech, like the government tried to do in Nevada.

San Francisco's Housing Crisis Explained

Archangel Michael Re:The bay area used to have affordable housing (357 comments)

The most racist thing I've ever heard, were the liberals whining about black people's "plight", making excuses for the bad behavior being "cultural". It is clearly the most bigoted viewpoint, and it isn't coming from "Tea Baggers", it is coming from the left. And some of the worst, is coming the black/african left. These people are poverty pimps and race baiters who DO NOT WANT a successful Black (see Ben Carson character assassination).

When success is rewarded with hateful words like "Uncle Tom", and "Race Traitor" you can squarely call it "racism". There is no greater racist than those that DO NOT believe black people can be smart, intelligent and successful.

But, instead of taking a close look at the policies that are designed to hold black people captive (slavery??) inside the invisible cages and to be ruled by their plantation masters (voting 80% DNC), we have people calling the wrong side "racist".

The real Racism are those that insist that black people cannot be successful, without a handout.

Mathematical Proof That the Cosmos Could Have Formed Spontaneously From Nothing

Archangel Michael Re:If you make this a proof of God... (595 comments)

There is no difference. People are also searching for "proof" of God, and theories and experiments to prove HIS nature. The fact is, dark matter is theoretical and unprovable, and may not exist at all, because our limited viewpoint cannot allow for us to discover this truth.

"They only reason physicists came up with it in the first place is because... they did experiments and observed space, and noticed that there was too much gravity compared to observable objects"

This is 100% true, but flawed logic. They assume that which is not in evidence. They created a "force" (god) to account for things they observed (miracles), that they couldn't explain otherwise. The only thing they have done is cloaked it in "sciency" language to mask the fact that they have done the very thing that they make fun of religious people of doing.

Mathematical Proof That the Cosmos Could Have Formed Spontaneously From Nothing

Archangel Michael Re:If you make this a proof of God... (595 comments)

"We know that the universe itself is a finite age"

We don't "know" this. We assume it based on the facts we have as we understand them. There are a couple conditions (assumptions), 1) Time is a single dimension, 2) Dark Matter exists (we have no proof). There are good reasons to believe that time is not single dimension, which interestingly enough would negate the need for Dark Matter, while also explaining redshift light in a non-expanding universe that has always existed.

As humans, we assume things not in evidence, based on what we know. But if what we "know" is wrong, then our assumptions are likely to also be wrong.

Mathematical Proof That the Cosmos Could Have Formed Spontaneously From Nothing

Archangel Michael Re:If you make this a proof of God... (595 comments)

By your example, we have NO good example of how people should behave. All humans are critically flawed, and therefore we should not act in any way other than how we want. Selfishness is the end result of your argumentative point. There is no perfection in the human condition. Period.

Of course, that is kind of the point in the Bible, if you can get beyond your own bigotry and ignorance, taking stories (literal or figurative) out of context and extrapolating your own flawed viewpoint out of them. Having read the whole book series of book, including the apocryphal, I see it for what it is, a tale of flawed people who need redemption.

Of course if you're perfect, you don't need redemption. And if you're not perfect, and don't want redemption because you like your flaws, well then you're part of the problem, and not a solution.

Mathematical Proof That the Cosmos Could Have Formed Spontaneously From Nothing

Archangel Michael Re:If you make this a proof of God... (595 comments)

Physics has their own version of "God", it is called "dark matter". They believe it exists because this magical material is used to fill in the voids of all the problems they have with their current models. It has never been seen (thus "dark") they believe it exists (thus "matter") but they cannot confirm or deny it via scientific proof.

But since is is cloaked in "scientific" terminology, they count it as science, even though it clearly is not subject to the scientific method.

Mathematical Proof That the Cosmos Could Have Formed Spontaneously From Nothing

Archangel Michael Re:If you make this a proof of God... (595 comments)

Such a limited view of justice, such that justice doesn't exist except your version of justice, which by definition isn't justice but revenge. Which is how you view others definitions of justice, and thus, is exactly what you typed here.

Simply put (because I realize you probably can't understand the above), your view of "god" is limited because you can't (don't) believe in one. Because you don't believe, it jades your viewpoint in such a way to support your view.

Here's a thought, any god that forces people to be "good" doesn't believe in free will. That makes one a dictator and evil. Benevolence allows choice, but holds people responsible for their choices(Justice). You have chosen, shouldn't you be responsible for your choice ... for eternity? OR would you rather be forced to comply to doing things against your will, simply so you won't spend eternity being held responsible for your choice?

But then again, that is the whole liberal mindset, freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want and avoid consequences at whatever cost. Blaming others for their own failures.

New French Law Prohibits After-Hours Work Emails

Archangel Michael Re:A law for everything... (477 comments)

"desperate, poor, and ignorant"

There is no excuse in modern educated society to being "ignorant". None. Even if you are ignorant, getting a computer connected to the internet should eliminate ignorance. Again, there is no excuse. If you have an email address, and a smart phone (as suggested by the Submission), you have no excuse to being ignorant.

I don't count ignorance as an excuse for anything any more. People choose to be ignorant because they spend too much time on silly things (pop culture) and not enough time paying attention to the world around them. Ignorance is bliss, it is easy, it is lazy.

It is very easy to take advantage of people who don't care.

Archangel Michael Re:Do you need a database? (272 comments)

Dictionary.com says it best ...

Usage note
Irregardless is considered nonstandard because of the two negative elements ir- and -less. It was probably formed on the analogy of such words as irrespective, irrelevant, and irreparable. Those who use it, including on occasion educated speakers, may do so from a desire to add emphasis.

Smart Phones Outsell Computers

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Archangel Michael (180766) writes "Smart phones have, for the first time, out sold computers.

For me, this is a milestone really worth mentioning, as it clearly indicates that smart communication devices are replacing computers. I know my phone can do some 65-80% of what I used to do on my computer.

In related news, Apple is slated to become the most valuable company in the world, partially based on its iPhone sales.

Friends and Freaks

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 9 years ago

For those that think that adding my as a foe is a good thing, I smile at their foolishness. I just add them to my friends list.

Two more this month have fallen into this little quirk of mine. I never much figured out why people "hate" others enough to be bothered to actually put them on a Foe List.

Love you guys. ;-)

To the few people that have added me as Friends recently, thank you. I know it isn't much, but it is all I have to offer. Please don't feel diminished by the fact that I also add my freaks as my friends, as that is in no way a reflection of who you are.

Textbooks

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 9 years ago

I have long been trying to advocate community based text books, using the Creative Commons type license. Imagine the combined intellect of all the worlds teachers contributing to a systematic learning collection of textbooks.

I am positive that the books would be much cheaper to produce. And as a bonus each student would be able to write notes( in them ) and keep the text for as long as needed. Perhaps even giving each student the entire course on a CD, to help prevent DeadTree versions.

It would prevent both Right wing and Left wing people from undue influence in the material, and the long term ability to cross check facts and provide alternate viewpoints.

I am not sure how this would play out with the teacher's unions and the school districts though

Democratic Con

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 9 years ago

WHY would the Democrats put Jimmy Carter up criticizing Bush's record? He sure didn't do a good job when HE had the chance.

In fact, If I recall the economy of Jimmy Carter was called Stagflation. High Unemployement, High interest, high taxes, no growth economy under his watch.

In fact, Militant Islam got a foothold in Iran under his watch. In fact, terrorism got a foot hold under his watch. Remember the Iranian hostage crisis? Remember the botched attempt at a rescue.

In fact, the moral of the US was much worse when HE was president. Why anyone would listen to him is beyond me.

Goofy Ratings

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Lets start off by examining one of the scores from one of my posts.

(Score:0, Insightful)

Since I start off with a +1 on all my posts, this seems a bit .... Weird. I have been moderated DOWN for being insightful?

A close look at the score table below will explain how this happens.

Starting Score: 1 point
Moderation -1
    30% Insightful
    70% Overrated

30% think it is insightful, and 70% overrated. Since I am thinking that Slashdot rounds the numbers to the nearest 10% so that I have one "Insightful" and two Down mods, the last being "Overrated" for a total of three.

The "Overrated" mod is kind of funny to me. It means that the post has at least SOME interest, just not enough to rate it up, but not really worth modding down, except that is exactly what they are doing.

Thanksgiving

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 10 years ago

So this week has Turkey day on Thursday, where we eat enough turkey to sleep for a week afterwords. The magical chemical that makes one sleepy is Tryptophan (or does it?). It is, however, a neat little amino acid.

http://www.chemie.fu-berlin.de/chemistry/bio/aminoacid/trp_en.html

Eating Turkey which contians elevated levels of Trytophan is probably NOT the cause for all the sleepy heads on Friday.

http://www.ehso.com/ehshome/FoodSafety/foodtryptophan.php

So, what is the cause? Probably over eating and all the alchohol consumed. But what is Thanksgiving except an excuse to eat and drink too much?

A nice bottle of Merlot, and a Chardonnay (for those that don't like real wine) will be on my table, as well as sparkeling cider for those that don't like alchohol and the kids.

I will be carving the bird using the "Presentation" method described HERE

http://www.eatturkey.com/foodsrv/manual/serve7.html

I sharpen my own blades, so the knife will be sharp. Nothing is more dangerous than a dull knife. So take the time to sharpen those dull knives.

http://www.diabetic-lifestyle.com/articles/oct01_cooki_1.htm

http://www.taunton.com/finecooking/pages/c00150.asp

Having work in many kitchens, I can sharpen a blade from very dull to very sharp on a Steel in about 1 -3 minutes. Only on the worst blades, ones with nicks and such do I ever sharpen on a grinder.

Pumpkin, Pecan, and lemon meringue pie are for dessert. Nobody likes Mincemeat Pie, except me, so I don't get my favorite for another year.

I will be making my own yeast rolls using a family recipe from France. They are so simple, yet so good.

Anyway, hoping you and yours have a very nice Thanksgiving. Take time to reflect on all the things you really are thankful for.

Moderation .... AGAIN

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 10 years ago

I must be facinated by the whole moderation process. But I have noticed something quite recently. That is not that many articles are getting moderated. And the ones that are moderated remain at 3 or 4 longer than ever.

It makes me wonder if the moderation system is starting to fail or if the SlashDudes have changed the parameters.

I have seen several posts that were RIGHT on target or just plain funny stuck at 1. That is another thing, I don't see many +2s anymore either.

Total Recall or not?

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 10 years ago

I will be most likely holding my nose tomarrow as I vote in the Recall of Greyout Davis. I don't want any chance of that idiot or his Racist Clone in office on Weds.

Ahhhnold is going to get my vote (Voting early, often). It looks like it is going to be tight.

If it wasn't tight I would have voted for the Porn Starlett, just to waste my vote, and show my contempt for the whole Election process. (I view the whole thing as rigged anyway).

As for the allegations against AHHHNOLD of womanizing, groping or otherwise crude behavior, if this monkey is the best they can come up with, they are really hurting.

Internet Taxes

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Okay, here is where things get interesting.

We should be taxing the crap out of things that are harmful to society, and untaxing things that are actually GOOD for society.

Is having an income good? If so, why are we taxing it?

Think what would happen if we taxed PORNO instead? or Drugs? Or Prostitution? or whatever. Taxing stuff that makes society better is just plain STUPID.

I wouldn't be opposed to a sales tax on Internet purchases, in the current wacky tax/spend system we have today. But here is how I would set it up.

Any Purchase made by or through a internet source or destination inside the USoA would be taxed at a FLAT rate, to be evenly divided among the origination and destination states.

For instance, Ma&Pa Internet Sales INC, sells me a $100 pair of gold plated plastic spoons. They are in Texas, and I am in South Dakota (not really). Texas and South Dakota get 1/2 of the collected sales tax. Let us say that sales tax is 4% that would mean SD and TX would both get $2 each.

Now, if I were in say London, M&P would still collect 4% tax. Tex would get $2, and the other $2 would go to some other fund.

If on the otherhand, M&P were in London instead, that is a tricky issue. I think Import duties and other such restrictions would then apply.

Religious Wackos

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Okay, so I see a post today on some more smart card privacy invasion. This time data tracking who goes where using Public Tramsportation in London.

This time, I can't help myself, and hint that I am one of those WEIRDOS that actually believes in the Bible.

The question is though, would this and should this one aspect of my life affect what others think of topics not even related?

In other words, does the fact that I actually believe in something bigger than myself, affect my ability to comment insightfully or otherwise on topics outside that relm?

Does this totally change how people see me? Not that I really care. I think it is something people should know, because it is important to me.

I should point out that I am not a Luddite either. Since I can remember, I have been facinated with technology, and gadgets and such.

However, I also see the amalgamation of technology coming together in a way where a single entity could control most every aspect of our lives.

This is something I am watching very carefully.

Elections, voting systems etc

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 10 years ago

So, the Circuit Court for California are debating the merits of various voting methodologies. Specifically Punch card ballots.

The case involves mostly liberal politicos calling for a suspention in the Recall election of California based upon the notion that an inanimate object can cause "Disenfranchisement" of a certain clase (or classes) of people.

What nobody has brought up, is the disenfranchisement of those who support the recall, if the process is held up for MOSTLY political reasons.

The whole reason this is being suspended isn't because of punch cards, it is because of Grey Davis vs Arnold (and the gang of 135). If this was the other way around, I would be willing to bet a ton of money that they would be quiet, not saying a PEEP.

Further, to insult the core group(s) of voters by insiuating that they are incapable of punching ONE HOLE is incredible. Besides, if people are that stupid, then their votes shouldn't count. I mean, if you can't figure out a ballot, perhaps you shouldn't be voting.

I think it isn't any supprise to note, that it is the DEMOCRATS who are courting the STUPID vote. That should be an indication of what it takes to be a democrat.

Remember, I am Libertarian, not a Rebublican. They have their issues too.

Strawberry Daquiris

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 10 years ago

I am taking advice from my personal slashcounselor to post a recipe. The only thing is, this recipe is (was) top secret and only known by a few close associates before today.

It is my recipe, I made it up, and everyone who has tasted it claims it was the "best ever".

16 oz frozen sweetened strawberries.
1 12oz can Kerns Strawberry Nectar.
1/2 cup 1/2 & 1/2
1/4 - 1/2 cup Rum dark Rum (optional)
Whipping cream to top.

In a blender mix strawberries, nectar and 1/2 & 1/2. The Can of Nectar should be VERY cold, almost frozen. The 1/2 & 1/2 is used to help thicken and smooth the blend. Blend till smooth and creamy.

If you use rum, that too should be VERY COLD. Colder the better, as the cold helps keep the Mix THICK.

Pour in to small glasses, and top with Whipping Cream. If it is fresh strawberry season, you can add a fresh strawberry on the edge of the glass for an elegant touch.

Is it the tools or is it the user

Archangel Michael Archangel Michael writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Okay, one of my bosses comes to me today (Thurs) to try and promote the latest greatest "Content Management System" for our web site. But the story doesn't start there, it starts tuesday at the bi-monthly tech meeting for all the techs in the department (spread across various sites).

At that meeting, this boss (not pointy head by any stretch), mentions that several schools have set up new web sites using this Content Management system, and mentions how crappy my web site looks, and how it could be helped by a "content management system" like this.

That is when I first mentioned that I am running a content management system, that didn't cost a dime. And the site's crappy features were do to NOBODY willing to learn how to use the system.

She was explaining all the various things that this new system could do, and I kept saying "Mine does that" to EVERYTHING. No FTP (yup), No HTML (Yup), Management features (yup), secure editing (yup)......

Well that went over like the lead brick I knew it was. Which leads us to today's meeting (un announced). She showed me the system (looks nice, easy etc). And I gave a tour of ours.

It was then that she realized that it wasn't the tool that was causing problems, it was the people.

Which gets me to my next point. Why do people use the phrase "I am not techological" to mean "Don't even try to teach me as I am not willing to learn"?

I mean how hard can it be to WYSIWYG a Web Page? Cut and Paste from WORD etc. I could understand if I were talking about Perl or the intracacies of Network protocols and the OSI model.

But I am not. I am talking about click here, click there, type this, and bam, you have a web page. Want a calendar, click "Calendar", want to add an image, click "Image".

Yes, it is NOT the tools, it is the PEOPLE. Spending money on a "professional" system is not the answer, unless it is "why are we broke?"
