Security Community Raises $12k For Researcher Snubbed By Facebook

Chrutil Re:Nice effort, but sets a bad precedent (95 comments)

The problem is, by third parties paying him, it sets a precedent for rewarding Facebook's bad behavior.

Nah. Now everybody knows that instead of getting $500 from Facebook telling them about their bugs, they can get $12k from the community by just hacking them directly.

We've got the Van Allen belt... what are the other two, Van Morrison and Van Johnson?

Let's hope it stays at three so we don't get a Van Damme belt as well.

Possible Habitable Planet Just 12 Light Years Away

Could you get more by slingshotting around the sun?

Yeah, but you'll end up in San Francisco in 1986 so it won't do you any good.

Yeah, I actually saw this presentation at Siggraph back in '05 and it was really cool. When I saw this one I was wondering if they came up with something new, but it looks like exactly the same thing.

Ask Slashdot: Which Comic Books To Start My 3-Year-Old With?

Chrutil Re:Tandy Computer Whiz Kids (372 comments)

Good list indeed, but probably not for another four/five years or so. Three is very young for all that. Every kid is different, but my four year old is definitely not ready for that. My six year old, however, is starting to show interest. Early stuff like the first tintin's were written for a different world and could be better suited for an age when you can explain a thing or two in some context to your child.

Paramount Claims Louis CK "Didn't Monetize"

Chrutil Re:Paramount's definition of "Monetize" (288 comments)

I suppose Monetize means using "Hollywood accounting" to pretend no money was made from enormous profits.
No question Louis CK made good money of it (rightfully so), and I really hope others that use the same methods will as well.
Jim Gaffigans recent Mr. Universe, for example (and yes - get it and see it - best ever)

Louis CK's Internet Experiment Pays Off

Chrutil Re:What shocks me (309 comments)

He filmed and produced the show with money out of his own pocket, that's $170k. The website setup cost was something like $30k. Then he had to pay tax on the gain. That adds up to about $300k leaving $200k in profit.
