How many years was Heartbleed around before anyone noticed? Apparently "many eyes" were not reading that bit of code.

ArchieBunker Re:Urban legend? (294 comments)

I'm actually kind of happy what happened at the Bundy ranch. It shows you can still push back against the government.

Windows 10: Charms Bar Removed, No Start Screen For Desktops

ArchieBunker Looks UGLY (370 comments)

Windows 8 and these screenshots look really ugly. Why the switch to every shape being super sharp and using a 4 bit color palette? Looks like something I could draw up in paint in a few minutes. At least Apple's designs are aesthetically pleasing. This just hurts your eyes.

Anonymous Asks Activists To Fight Pedophiles In 'Operation Deatheaters'

ArchieBunker Re:Think of the children! (408 comments)

Reddit was crowd sourcing surveillance and amateur photos taken from the bombing scene. They latched onto one person and started a witch hunt. Turns out the guy had nothing to do with it but now he had a million internet neckbeards and other crazies calling for his head.

ArchieBunker What a cheap fucker (188 comments)

Just looked on Ebay and you can get PCI FDDI cards for less than $20. How much time is spent maintaining this 20 year old code? Total economics fail.

Where Cellular Networks Don't Exist, People Are Building Their Own

ArchieBunker Haha are you serious? (104 comments)

When the daily news story is about the police finding a duffel bag of severed heads or corpses hanging from a bridge you might have bigger problems than unlicensed communications equipment.

Firefox 35 Arrives With MP4 Playback On Mac, Android Download Manager Support

ArchieBunker Dumped it already (177 comments)

First I started with Palemoon because the interface wasn't that abortion they call Australis. But Palemoon seemed to be getting slower so I gave Chrome a try and liked it. Not without a few essential addons like Adblock, Flashblock, and a home button. We're at a crossroads right now like when Netscape 4 came out and IE really improved.

OpenSSL had crippling bugs for years until heartbleed. Tens of thousands of people spoke of the virtue of open source and "many eyes" but apparently the author was the only one reading the source.

What Isn't There an App For?

ArchieBunker Re:Ghost Car Alert (421 comments)

Unmarked cars used to be incredibly easy to spot. Look for a white/navy/grey crown vic with heavy tint and steel rims. Although lately they have gotten more sneaky with the Dodge cars. The color scheme is the same but they use fancy wheel covers now.

Richard Stallman happy that Steve Jobs is gone

ArchieBunker ArchieBunker writes  |  more than 3 years ago

ArchieBunker (132337) writes "Richard Stallman is an eccentric, odd person who just went sour. In one fell, misguided swoop, he has compared the late Steve Jobs—an admittedly imperfect man, like us all—to corrupt mayors and other "evils" visited upon society:"
