SpaceX Falcon 9 and Dragon Make It To Orbit

BrettJB Re:Especially since NASA... (200 comments)

O-rings.

I may be wrong, but I believe the only data point we have on a space shuttle launch colder than 53 degrees Fahrenheit was a shuttle by the name of Challenger, and it didn't fare so well.

I do know that 53 degrees was the coldest launch data they had prior to Challenger...

Anti-US Hacker Takes Credit For Worm

BrettJB Re:PREPARE FOR FUNDING! (221 comments)

No need to sign up - hit the pavement.

You do the marketing and then farm out the tech work to India - that's how it's done these days. Although, people are starting to figure out that they can just cut out the American salesman and go directly to India and save all the American overhead and commissions that just pay for the fancy suits, Exlax watches, and huge CEO salaries.

Exlax watches? Remind me to never ask you what time it is...

New Tool Reveals Internet Passwords

BrettJB Re:Prettier Tool, Old Exploit (140 comments)

Not redundant mods - Cryacin is one of the (apparently few) commenters who got the Spaceballs reference.

I swear, kids these days... no respect for geek traditions and culture... Bah, now get off my lawn! (-- note to the younglings: this is NOT a Gran Torino reference!)

Emulation For Preservation of Digital Artifacts

BrettJB Re:I pity the future (81 comments)

No, but it's entirely possible he's Salmon Teriyaki, or Salmon Sashimi...

He might even be a nice Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon with Citrus Glaze Served with Seasonal Vegetables and Garlic Mashed Potatoes

BrettJB Re:Very funny... (1582 comments)

Working system? Did you click the links to Taco's "achievements"?!?! I think Slashdot needs to warn epileptics and others with a tendency towards seizures to NOT do so. The goggles do nothing indeed...

Amazon.com To Accept Game Trade-Ins

BrettJB Re:Competition is good (242 comments)

Yeah, I hate not being able to access amazon.com from anywhere in the world...

You know, what they need is some kind of distributed network, with nodes interconnected with one another, kind of like a web. Yeah, a world wide web, that's the ticket!

I kid, I kid... You may have a point with people being unwilling to put up with the delay and uncertainty of dropping their used games in the mail, but I doubt it'll dampen the enthusiasm for Amazon's offering much.
