HP Gives OpenVMS New Life and Path To X86 Port

ArchieBunker The old timers were right (131 comments)

OpenVMS will outlive us all. I really can't believe there are that many OpenVMS boxes in the wild. Can anyone list some applications still being run by OpenVMS?

ArchieBunker Good luck (206 comments)

With the numbers that ASICs are doing these days can you even get one coin using CPUs alone?

Cable Companies: We're Afraid Netflix Will Demand Payment From ISPs

ArchieBunker Fuck ESPN (200 comments)

ESPN is the most expensive cable channel. It accounts for the largest chunk of your bill. I have never watched ESPN and don't plan to. Why can't they go with a subscription model like HBO?

Chicago Red Light Cameras Issue Thousands of Bogus Tickets

ArchieBunker Reading comprehension (229 comments)

Under criminal law you have the right to face your accuser. Is the court supposed to bring in the red light camera for testimony? Sure you can request a hearing on the ticket but I meant no cops have to show up. You guys are thick.

Dealing With 'Advertising Pollution'

ArchieBunker You need (411 comments)

Youtube Center. I run that with Adblock and it automatically makes videos play in the larger window and always sets the volume to 10%. That is just a few things you can fix. The addon has tons of tweaks.

Chicago Red Light Cameras Issue Thousands of Bogus Tickets

ArchieBunker You're lying (229 comments)

These automatic tickets are CIVIL fines instead of criminal. No one has to show up. If you don't pay they just send you to a collection agency.

AMD FirePro W9100 16GB Workstation GPU Put To the Test

ArchieBunker Re:what? (42 comments)

Exactly. Also double precision is a requirement for scientific modeling and calculations. Do you really want a 1 bit error on a simulation that took a month to process?

Leaked Build of Windows 9 Shows Start Menu Return

ArchieBunker Re:Not the target market (346 comments)

What do the vast majority of people do with their laptops? They play some games, watch youtube, and maybe type up notes in class. Can you elaborate on what "much more mature and reasonable" means? I can still buy two Chromebooks for the price of an iPad and not be forced to use bullshit iTunes.

Leaked Build of Windows 9 Shows Start Menu Return

ArchieBunker Re:What's the big deal about win8? (346 comments)

Windows 8 just does dumb shit. The first box I setup had a touchscreen. The instructions say to move the mouse to the upper right corner. So I move the mouse and nothing happens. Check all the cables and everything but it all appears working. Finally figure out they want me to move the CURSOR to the upper right using my FINGER. The mouse is not even used!

They are fucking ugly. The super square shapes remind me of basic X window managers. Hell even CDE is more pleasing to look at.

ArchieBunker Not the target market (346 comments)

You are not the target market for Chromebooks. The funny part is they still cost like 1/8 of what your Macbook did. My mom has a Chromebook and she loves it. I never get tech support calls anymore. Everything just works.

Unintended Consequences For Traffic Safety Feature

ArchieBunker LOL (579 comments)

Try living where I do. People ignore lights and crosswalks and stroll right into traffic. I saw one unlucky girl not paying attention with the wheel of a van resting on her ankle. The driver didn't even notice until people started banging on his window.

Richard Stallman happy that Steve Jobs is gone

ArchieBunker ArchieBunker writes  |  more than 2 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:"
