Columbus Blamed For Mini Ice Age

Chicken04GTO Re:Type in the summary (420 comments)

The whole article is silly...who depopulation native fields and cities? Europeans, right? Where did they live? They made their own towns and cities. They didn't just come over on boats, kill all the natives and sail back to Europe did they?

Two years later and still not as fast as you used to be. I call that UI design failure.

Helicopter Crashes While Filming Autonomous Audi

Chicken04GTO Before jumping to conclusions.... (218 comments)

Before jumping to conclusions....yeah I know this is the internet...
Flying @ 14,000' elevation aint easy for a helicopter, and it gets *windy* up there at the top of Pikes Peak. Until the NTSB completes the investigation, any comments about what happened and whose fault it is would be pointless.

Proposed Law Would Require ID To Buy Prepaid Phones

Chicken04GTO Re:Throw me a bone. (615 comments)

Im sorry, but your comment included the archaic word "God" in it, therefore it must be religious propaganda, which all good modern people know is just another means of control. You decide if thats sarcastic or not.

Bullshit. If you cant be a good husband or a good father, dont get married and dont have kids. Water Polo is not exactly the same as taking the responsibility of a family seriously. What a stupid analogy. BUT IM A WRITER IM ALLOWED TO TREAT PEOPLE LIKE SHIT BECAUSE IM SPECIAL. NO, youre not.

Its retarded, not odd. Guns have nothing to do with violence, anymore than pop-up adds have anything to do with censorship around the world.

Microsoft Says Windows 7 Not Killing Batteries

Chicken04GTO Read the article knuckleheads. (272 comments)

All windows 7 is doing is reading battery controller provided information on itself. If the battery drops below 40% of capacity, windows reports it. The idea of Windows 7 damaging your batteries is absurd.

Since I know none of you will read the article, because it might get in the way of your circle jerk windows bashing:

"PC batteries expose information about battery capacity and health through the system firmware (or BIOS). There is a detailed specification for the firmware interface (ACPI), but at the most basic level, the hardware platform and firmware provide a number of read-only fields that describe the battery and its status. The firmware provides information on the battery including manufacturer, serial number, design capacity and last full charge capacity. The last two pieces of information--design capacity and last full charge capacity--are the information Windows 7 uses to determine how much the battery has naturally degraded. This information is read-only and there is no way for Windows 7 or any other OS to write, set or configure battery status information. In fact all of the battery actions of charging and discharging are completely controlled by the battery hardware. Windows only reports the battery information it reads from the system firmware. Some reports erroneously claimed Windows was modifying this information, which is definitely not possible."

Studies Reveal Why Kids Get Bullied and Rejected

Chicken04GTO Article translation: CONFORM (938 comments)

In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out

Conform or get harassed by bullies? How about the next time someone harasses you, you ask them nicely to stop, and if they continue, punch them in the face. /Problem

Scientology Attacker Will Be Sentenced To Jail

Chicken04GTO Re:We are Anonymous. (354 comments)

Wow, that's very poetic and all deep and shit. Tell me, oh nameless one, those two rocks who got stuck in jail...how do they feel about being nameless and being referred to as nothing? I think they'd disagree. You are only anonymous until you really piss someone off enough to come after you, then you are an individual hung out to dry.

Asus Says Netbook Is Dead, Hello Wearable Computers

Chicken04GTO Only go so small... (264 comments)

Until it can project the screen onto my eye, and I can interface with it virtually, the smallest a computer can be and still be useful is a good sized screen 10" ? - and a keyboard with reasonably sized keys.

Chicken04GTO Absurd. (242 comments)

Crap article with no way to substantiate the actual dollar amounts. How much money would be lost if a large company simply had no IT department at all?
