Reviving a Commodore 64 Computer Using a Raspberry Pi

CaseCrash Re:old tech (165 comments)

But I'd say that 99.999% of today's programmers have no fucking clue what code optimization really means..

CPU power is cheap, let the compiler optimize what it can, take care of larger bottlenecks, and who cares? The rapid development we have now allows us to progress at an amazing rate because it usually doesn't matter if we waste a few cycles. You can continue to do F1 at the edges, but the mass in the middle is fine with a Civic.

CaseCrash Browser Simulator only on firefox? (80 comments)

Also check out the CERN line mode browser simulation of the first web site

On chrome it's unreadable, on IE it's crazily formated. Firefox shows it correctly, but come on; talking about how awesome the web is and giving an example that fucks up?

PayPal Freezes MailPile's Account

CaseCrash Re:Who leaves money in a paypal account. (443 comments)

It's also important to sweep the account you are sweeping into... usually, the wire transfer capability works both ways. So they can, without additional authorization, suck funds back out of your bank account. (if anyone happens to know a bank that will let you prevent this sort of outgoing transaction, I am all ears)

I think most banks will provide an account like that. I found out at work that we have an incoming only account (outgoing only to another account of ours) where our customers pay us when someone started trying to cash fraudulent checks on it. Since it doesn't allow it, we didn't lose anything. We use Bank of America.
