BanHammor Re:His 'role in the site' (221 comments)

What did gay sex do to you that you equate rape to it? Seriously, that's just perpetuation of rape culture, don't do that.

By the way, have there ever been open-source DRM solutions? I don't remember those.

How Firefox Will Handle DRM In HTML

BanHammor Re:How is this better than simply not supporting i (361 comments)

Admins of sites don't like themselves blamed. They will just hang a big sign saying "your browser can't support DRM, so switch to the one that does"

How Firefox Will Handle DRM In HTML

BanHammor Re:Fine for me. (361 comments)

They are basically making a sandbox for that thing, but without the proverbial sand. The CDM itself will be hosted at Adobe.

How Firefox Will Handle DRM In HTML

BanHammor Re:I don't like DRM either (361 comments)

Except it's streaming and not native playing - the media is already in a container and is irretrievable without specific hacks.

How Firefox Will Handle DRM In HTML

BanHammor Re:I mod you (+5, Funny) (361 comments)

Oh hey, you might also want to uninstall your Linux distribution because of binary blobs in the kernel. Of course they are not mandatory, neither they are loaded at all times, but EVIL PROPRIETARY BOLLOCKS.

Can Thunderbolt Survive USB SuperSpeed+?

BanHammor Re:Doesn't matter all that much (355 comments)

My USB2 card, a 6-channel Fast Track, can do with about 8ms of latency on my mediocre hardware. Is this really that big of a deal?

Debian Technical Committee Votes For Systemd Over Upstart

BanHammor Re:Die, Ubuntu, Die (on topic = marginal) (379 comments)

I can't criticise personal choices. (It seems he has approximately the same problem with Ubuntu as he does with black or gay people though.)

You do know your pretty flagrant racism makes your opinions automatically much less sound, right?

The Dismantling of POTS: Bold Move Or Grave Error?

BanHammor Re:Wire is good (582 comments)

I guess this varies by state largely. In Moscow suburbs, DSL costs 400 rubles (around 10 Euros) per month with 5-10 Mbps at best, asymmetrical, and fiber/cable costs about 500 (about $15) with 40 Mbps speeds, scaling quite nicely. If the infrastructure is not dismantled, but replaced, then the cost/speed ratio is better on dedicated cable.

Of course. I thought the whole project described in the article was about bringing fibre instead of copper.

And DSL is much, much shittier than fiber. Good riddance.

Would you consider the cost of encoding the video instead? That is not too free, so I hear.

Antigua Looks Closer To Legal "Piracy" of US-Copyrighted Works

BanHammor Re:You go, Antigua ! (327 comments)

Not exactly. He was a person interpreting Torah and with a definite Jewish origin. Not to call him a Jew means to have a rather crazy interpretation of what a Jew means.
