First Shellshock Botnet Attacking Akamai, US DoD Networks

CSG_SurferDude Re:Use the bug to patch the bug (236 comments)

A) It should only update bash

B) Also run yum -y update bash

C) This has been discussed for years, and the general consensous has always been it's better to not patch their systems (allthough I disagree with that. If you left your system open, you're just asking for somebody else to patch it for you, IMHO)

12 Dead, 50 Injured at The Dark Knight Rises Showing In Colorado

CSG_SurferDude Re:how 'bout some gun control... (1706 comments)

actually...

The email attributed the piece to "Colonel L. Caudill USMC (Ret)." We did some research and found that apparently there is no Col (or Major) L. Caudill USMC (Ret). Rather it appears that the essay was written by Marko Kloos and posted on his blog on March 23, 2007. You can read more of his essays by clicking here. Unfortunately there are none posted after July, 2008. But if you like the essay above you will also find this one interesting, particularly if you are in the market for a handgun. And there are other gun related pieces on Marko's blog you will likely be interested in.

Take a look at google for more details

CSG_SurferDude I use my Stupid Truck. (566 comments)

I use my Stupid Truck.

I'd rather have a smaller vehicle, but honestly, the cost to me to have two vehicles is more than I'd save by driving a commuter car to work, and the pickup on the weekends. BUT, I just ran the numbers again, and at $4.00 per gallon of gas, a commuter car would save me $1,430 a year (17 mpg for my truck, and assuming 40 mpg for a commuter car). Extra insurance per year is $900, so now I'm only saving $530 per year.There's no way I can get a commuter car for $530 a year, so I stick with my truck. And don't try telling me that I can always rent a truck when I need one. I USE my truck, AS A TRUCK, every week. I carry bikes, camping gear, fishing gear, lumber, dogs, yard stuff (dirt, mulch, topsoil, plants). During the fall, I use it as a truck to haul tons of mulch around, and I tend to fill up the truck with mulch easily more than 40 times.

Basically, I'm stuck with my truck.

Boston Dynamics Unveils AlphaDog Quadruped Robot

CSG_SurferDude I have a cheaper/better/faster alternative to this (140 comments)

I have a cheaper/better/faster alternative to this

It can go for miles, can refuel automatically off of native vegetation, can be taught new commands in the battlefield, and is self-replicating.

It's called a HORSE!

CSG_SurferDude Re:Obviously... (273 comments)

Why stop at winning once? So you don't get caught at it. The governement of (Insert your country here) is going to make sure you "disappear" into (Insert name of your country's version of Area 51) that you won't even know what hit you!

The next thing you know you'll be predicting troop movements for the government, and lottery numbers for the guards...
