1-in-1,000 Chance of Asteroid Impact In ... 2182?

BhaKi Re:I'll probably be dead by then, right? (326 comments)

Not only you. The whole human species would be extinct by then. We have global warming, pollution, fuel shortage, wars, corruption. These are enough to finish us by 2100. What happens in 2182 is irrelevant.

China Renews Google's Content Provider License

BhaKi Re:Not much of a change (64 comments)

I've always wondered why they don't change the name of their party to something like "Totalitarian Capitalist Party of China". Your post explains it.

BhaKi Google need not fear (290 comments)

Bing and Yahoo? Yes. Google? No. Google has excellent tie-ups with cronies in high-levels.

Firefox 3.6.4 Released With Out-of-Process Plugins

BhaKi Re:Great (261 comments)

For performance reasons, tabs don't and shouldn't run in separate processes. You know, the original motivation for the tabs feature was that each tab could be run in a separate thread whereas each window needs a separate process. On most platforms, processes are more expensive than threads.

Intel Sucks Up Water Amid Drought In China

BhaKi Re:Capitalism !! (386 comments)

Marx is thoroughly outdated. He didn't anticipate the rise of capitalist media with sophisticated propaganda techniques. He didn't anticipate the rise of secret services that are powerful enough to force regime changes anywhere in the world, including democratic countries. He didn't anticipate the rise of war profiteers and military-industrial complexes. All these things are real game-changers.

It's much better to read Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn.

Google Offers Encrypted Web Search Option

BhaKi Re:Security != privacy. (288 comments)

My government, on the other hand, has repeatedly demonstrated its willingness to break its own laws whenever it's convenient for any of their actual constituents, i.e. corporations.

You do realize that Google is a corporation too, don't you?

Starting an International Cybersecurity Conversation

BhaKi Re:OpenBSD could eliminate "cybercrime". (51 comments)

Your logic is flawed. Your argument is like - OS2 is based on OS1, and OS1 is secure, therefore OS2 is secure. When it comes to security, the valid argument is - If OS2 is based on OS1, and OS2 is secure, then OS1 is secure. This is because the number of bugs in OS2 would be greater than or equal to (but not less than) the number of bugs in OS1. Of course, I'm assuming that bugs are the only mechanism for the emergence of vulnerabilities. But you get the point, right?

jpoker - A poker client fully in javascript

BhaKi BhaKi writes  |  more than 4 years ago

BhaKi (1316335) writes ""Jpoker is a javascript client for playing online poker. It displays the list of poker tables and when the user choses one, it is displayed in the browser. The user can join the game and play hands. It supports multi table tournaments. The poker server to which jpoker connects must implement a protocol compatible with http://pokersource.info/poker-network/. jpoker user interface is based on http://tiddlywiki.com/. However the underlying jQuery based library is independent and can be used to implement alternate look and feel.""

Phoronix.com reports ext4 data loss

BhaKi BhaKi writes  |  more than 4 years ago

BhaKi (1316335) writes "Michael Larabel of Phoronix reports: "For the past several days benchmarks have been going on a plethora of ATI Radeon HD 2000/3000/4000 (R600/700 generation) graphics cards as well as some of the older Radeon X1000 (R500) hardware for reference. ... At our disposal is quite a collection of graphics cards, but to much dismay this article has been postponed as the testing process had to be restarted from scratch. Why? The test results have been lost. The only time this has occurred previously was due to disk drive failure, but this time it's thanks to EXT4 in the Linux 2.6.32 kernel.""

Microsoft's decade-old patent on tree-view mode!

BhaKi BhaKi writes  |  more than 6 years ago

BhaKi writes "Remember the Tree-View mode in many file management applications? It's shocking to know that this omnipresent feature was patented by Microsoft back in 1995 (granted in 1997). I'm not very sure about the implications, though. The patent is so general that it can be related to many things from tree-mode to virtual filesystems. Check out claim no. 3 of the patent for the most clear part. What are your comments?
