Antarctic Ice Loss Big Enough To Cause Measurable Shift In Earth's Gravity

Cenan Re: anti-science idiocy (192 comments)

Rejecting capitalism does not automatically make soviet style communism, or any derivative thereof, the only alternative left.

Cenan Re: anti-science idiocy (192 comments)

You mean like the government enacts the will of the people now? Oh the horror if all that were to stop.

Why did Microsoft skip Windows 9?

Cenan Re:Failed QA (168 comments)

They can have the best damn QA in the world, if the parameters of their work is set by bumbling idiots it'll result in Windows 8 regardless.

Ask Slashdot: How To Keep Students' Passwords Secure?

Cenan Re:OpenID (191 comments)

I tend to agree with this. Don't take away all the risks from these kids, they need to learn about the consequences of insecure passwords sometime. So their home page shows up in all pink, or all their notes have been translated to Ancient Egyptian - better now than when the stakes are higher. And they'll learn the lesson much better from personal experience.

Australian Senate Introduces Laws To Allow Total Internet Surveillance

Cenan Re:Australia voted... for a kick in the nuts. (212 comments)

What new laws are needed to arrest and convict a man that stabs a police officer? Even if its only attempted stabbing? Where is the hole that needs to be plugged with universal surveillance?

Rightscorp's New Plan: Hijack Browsers Until Infingers Pay Up

Cenan Re:Now what could go wrong? (376 comments)

Because your relationship with the customer can't get any worse either way? By being "compliant" you at least still have a chance to gouge Rightscorp for some "administration fees" or some such nonsense.

My degree of colorblindness:

Cenan Re:Different colors (267 comments)

I see deeper shades of green with my left eye. I have not noticed it with any other colors, only that it is very noticeable in the summer with all the green around. The difference is kind of like the difference between a cheap LED monitor and a plasma TV. I asked my optician about it last time I was in, and she said it was quite common.

Man-Made "Dead Zone" In Gulf of Mexico the Size of Connecticut

Cenan Re:0.17% (184 comments)

We use the quotes because the zones aren't actually dead, they're just full of undesirable life (algae).

Cenan Re:Is it cross-platform? (51 comments)

No need to be cross platform. Any platform that is not Windows is impervious to malware, /. says so.

Synaptics Buys Key Apple Supplier

Cenan Re:Apple better switch suppliers... (38 comments)

Hmm, I might have to look into that. The old laptop got scrapped by the repair shop (motherboard was fried, new parts unobtainable) and they sent me a new one. That touch pad sucks donkey balls (also Synaptic), but I never read the manual, just figured they did their usual thing and fucked up a good system in the name of $whatever.

Synaptics Buys Key Apple Supplier

Cenan Re:Apple better switch suppliers... (38 comments)

My old HP laptop had the best touch pad I've ever come across, made by Synaptic. The beauty of it was that it had a designated area for scrolling and could be turned off completely with a button at the top. The software "driver/spyware" that came with the laptop though was shit, I agree, the touch pad worked just fine with standard drivers installed.

Orca Identified As 103 Years Old

Cenan Re:Fuck seaworld (194 comments)

This is the one field where I would expect serious scientists to shut down everything if they have proof they're doing more harm than good.

Not likely. Even if they were serious scientists, they're still working within the confines of an amusement park. They have bean counters to answer to, and to them the "science" derived from keeping the animals is a slight PR bonus, not their reason to exist.
