Arkh89 Golden Method? (157 comments)

1 - Write an automated take down script :
        For each $contentProvider
        {
                For each $content in getCatalog($contentProvider)
                {
                          if(true)
                                  sendDMCATakeDownNotice( $contentProvider, $content, getRandomClientName() );
                }
        }

        For each $counterNotice
                send( $contentProvider, "My apologies, it is the automated script which made the mistake. Your feedback will help improve its detection rate'); // Do not change anything...

2 - Sell the service to hundreds of these large companies.
3 - Profit!

How Did Those STAP Stem Cell Papers Get Accepted In the First Place?

Arkh89 I can't imagine... (109 comments)

I can't imagine this was done on purpose... I can't imagine how a scientist would, knowingly, publish wrong results (and perceived as revolutionary/important by their peers). Because this would be nothing more than willingly putting a sword of Damocles over your head / committing professional suicide on the spot. I mean, how is that possible that rational people (scientific minds) would accept to do such thing while being sure it will compromise their entire career (and life) after that?

AMD, NVIDIA, and Developers Weigh In On GameWorks Controversy

Arkh89 Re:Wrong target of blame. (80 comments)

The part of the driver which is compiled as a kernel module to serve as adapter against the binary blob?

TechCrunch and Others On the Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Arkh89 Re:I beg to differ (136 comments)

I beg to differ too. For the same (top of the line) price you can get a laptop with a Core I7, 16GB of RAM (if not 32GB), 1TB HDD + MSATA SSD (expandable to a RAID0) and a REAL DEDICATED GPU.

Where is the advantage in having a tablet if they are just leaving it on their desks?

Tabs On Top -- No thanks, I want my tabs below the URL bar, where God intended them to be.

That's because you are not using your brain. It makes strictly NO SENSE to have the address bar on top of the tab bar. For each tab in the bar, I expect the info of the particular page to be WITHIN the tab not somewhere else (like, on top).

And, on a side note, I hate the fact that the searches are common to all tab on the same basis as previously.
