World's Worst Hacker?

Ben174 Re:oh, it's a troll (174 comments)

Sometimes when I'm trying to just find out how good of bandwidth a server has, I just wget some random giant file that's freely available on a big server. Windows Service Packs meet that requirement.

Chrome Private Mode Not Quite Private

Ben174 Re:Um no (234 comments)

Not only that, but you *zoom in* on red-hot-midget-porn. Presumably because midgets are smaller and must be enlarged to show texture.

YouTube Phasing Out Support For IE6

Ben174 Re:Market share (481 comments)

I've had several times where I'm testing a site in IE6, find a bug or quirk, then press Ctrl-N to open a new IE6 window, and browse to W3C (or other web development related site) to find a reference to that particular element and determine its compatibility with the browser I'm currently in. I'd say that's pretty common.

Why the CAPTCHA Approach Is Doomed

Ben174 Re:8==C=A=P=T=C=H=A==D (522 comments)

That captcha looks painfully easy to break. All a bot would have to do is render the HTML to a image and OCR it.

How Nvidia Wants To Bring 3D Glasses Back

Ben174 Re:"Mostly" monitors? (341 comments)

This is why you have to learn to see in pseudo-3D. If you start watching 3D when you're young, your mind will become trained to it, and won't try to compensate of the lack of other depth queues.

What's the best bank for a geek?

Ben174 Ben174 writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Ben174 writes "I've banked at a couple different banks and haven't yet been able to find one that offers the features I need. I'd like to find a bank that supports open standards, such exporting my statement data to a XML file format. I'd also like to write scripts to monitor my account and send me emails when my balance reaches X, or if a transaction occurs within X miles from my zip code. Do any banks currently support this?"

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
