My credits by name in (released) software:

Bob C. Cock Re:For actual work? (190 comments)

Same here. My wife works in the games industry and got my name into the credits of one of her projects recently as a thank you for all the crunch time support. Our son was also listed in TOR as a production baby.

Texas Attorney General Warns International Election Observers

Bob C. Cock Re:Looks like the AG actually read the law (817 comments)

While amusing this was not what I experienced when I went to vote early yesterday at my local Library. The only intimidation I experienced was at the length of the line to cast a vote so I decided to try another time.

Message In Bottle Found After 98 Years Near Shetland

Bob C. Cock Re:Obvious joke here (107 comments)

I had a similar jaw dropping experience when a 20 year old I work with didn't get the reference "nuke them from orbit, it's the only way to be sure." When I told him it was from Aliens his response was, "I don't watch old movies."

Iranian Players Blocked From World of Warcraft Due To Trade Sanctions

Bob C. Cock Re:When I was a kid we thought America was free (475 comments)

I read Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago and Cancer Ward about 10 years ago and I remember first being shocked at the brutality and callousness a government could have for their own people, and second astounded that the US was ever afraid of the USSR. The society depicted by Solzhenitsyn seemed to me to be so dysfunctional and unworkable it could inevitably only result in collapse.

Ask Slashdot: Best Headphones, Earbuds, Earphones?

Bob C. Cock Re:Bose (448 comments)

Etymotic make some excellent ear buds. I bought a pair for around $300 about 7-8 years ago and they still work great today. I originally got them for noise cancellation on air flights and I didn't want the big BOSE over the ear headphones. With the foam tip inserts they block nearly all outside noise. The only drawback to them is they get a little uncomfortable if you haven't broken in the inserts already.
