Best Buy Founder Makes $8.5 Billion Bid To Take Company Private

Cerberus7 Re:P.S. you have the attitude of a servant (300 comments)

I think the disconnect you guys are having surrounds your definition of "job creator." SuperKendall seems to define it literally. That is, somebody who owns a business and hires people to do work. Opportunist seems to be following the attempts by certain political types to redefine "super-wealthy sociopathic leach on society" as "job creator," and does not like it.

I don't think any sane person has a problem with literal "job creators." I think lots of people have problems with "super-wealthy sociopathic leaches on society" who try to paint themselves as "job creators" for the purposes of paying half the tax rate of "the other 98%."

I think I might've just one today's Buzzword Bingo...

I prefer to listen to recorded music ...

Cerberus7 Half-deaf, so you guess (334 comments)

I re-encode everything to mono. I just wish games would have a mono sound option, because when I have headphones on, it's hard to hear everything going on in games where the sound department decided to be real clever with the use of positioning tricks.

Ask Slashdot: Are Daily Stand-Up Meetings More Productive?

Cerberus7 Re:Curious (445 comments)

Holy crap, that's a scary idea (the early morning meeting hour enforcement thingy). I will consider myself fortunate that the worst I ever got was a demand to stand up during the "weekly huddle."

Germans Increase Office Efficiency With "Cloud Ceiling"

Cerberus7 Re:I approve! (223 comments)

I was going to make some snarky comment along the lines of "THERE'S A GIRL ON THE INTERNET! Quick, everybody flirt with her!" Then I saw your username and it kinda messed up the joke. Thanks for breaking the stereotype.

My present employer I think will survive ...

Cerberus7 Re:Healthcare (225 comments)

Fortunately, my employer uses IT to make us stand out. We've sunk millions of dollars into technology infrastructure, and it's paying off in a big way. Individual departments may look at us as a liability, but the people who make the strategic decisions know what we're worth. It's about to pay off, big-time, as we're about to double in size thanks to other hospital systems wanting to get in on what we do.

Get a job in healthcare. It's very nearly worry-free, aside from mergers, for another 30-40 years.

Big Changes Planned For The Force Unleashed 2

Cerberus7 Kyle Katarn could help (100 comments)

The Jedi Knight games did everything right, from force powers to saber combat to letting you SHOOT the danged baddies if you wanted to. Translate that to the new graphics/physics engine, and done. Instant awesome game. (k, not really, but you know what I mean)

Buy Your Own Tron Lightcycle For $35,000

Cerberus7 Re:Please explain the appeal of Tron to me (170 comments)

You might've been too old. My middle brother and I loved it, but our older brother was not much of a fan. To my little mind, the story was profound and world-shaking. To you, I can see it just being kinda *meh*.

Buy Your Own Tron Lightcycle For $35,000

Cerberus7 Whippersnapper! (170 comments)

Your UID suggests you should get off my lawn. :D

Those of us who were kids when it came out loved it, and the sequel (not a remake) seems well timed, to me. The movie was not a plotless dud, it was a kinda-confusing people-didn't-get-it (and a couple of plot holes didn't help) dud in the box office. TRON was redeemed by cable TV, VHS, and DVD.

And the cycles kick ass. So, get off my lawn :D

Cerberus7 Sign of the Apocalypse: Jersey driver lectures (957 comments)

Really? Wow. Where I live, in the Williamsubrg/Hampton Roads area of Virginia, a Jersey plate is a signal to be extra-vigilant. You make fine statements here, but on the roads in my area, your fellow statesmen are an unholy terror to be cautiously avoided.

Your only possible rivals are from Massachusetts.

Scientists Question Safety of New Airport Scanners

Cerberus7 Deployment schedule? (357 comments)

Anybody know if there's a deployment schedule for these things? Airport names and dates of deployment would be nice. That'll help me figure out where I definitely won't be going, and when.

Extremists Warn South Park Creators Over Muhammad In a Bear Suit

Cerberus7 Re:Gotta love... (1131 comments)

They don't have terrorists and dissidents because they killed pretty much all of them, and those that are left are very careful to not get noticed. Remember Tiananmen Square? That was nothing compared to what China has done in the not-much-more-distant past. That's how you keep your dissidents in line.

Game Difficulty As a Virtue

Cerberus7 Re:You gotta be kidding. (204 comments)

You just made the mistake of saying something was hard. All the "that's not hard, you just suck" folks ALWAYS come out of the woodwork for these situations. It's like having a 5-digit UID and claiming to have been around forever. The 4 and 3-digit folks magically appear. :)

For what it's worth, I have cleared 100% on Mario Kart and Galaxy, but it WAS HARD. Fine, I suck, I can accept that. What I had the hardest time with was when Mario Kart's AI started ramping up the cheating. Mario Kart wasn't hard because of difficulty, it was hard because the AI got massive artificial bonuses.

Mario Galaxy, though, was hard because of intrinsic difficulty, but also the controls. There were times when it felt like the control scheme was designed to make specific levels harder than they had to be. Beating the game is a challenge, but getting 100% is downright brutal.

And then my house got broken into, my Wii stolen. *RAGE*
