User Plea Means EISA Support Not Removed From Linux

CimmerianX Re:Overhead? (189 comments)

Well that's the point. He's basically saying "It's no skin of our backs" to keep it supported, so he does.

I think that's kinda awesome where 1 guy says he still need it supported and it stays.

Netflix Denies There Was a Policy Change With VPNs

CimmerianX Im surprised they don't already (67 comments)

Just like Hulu, in a concession to content providers who are paranoid that someone from Qatar might use VPN to watch Family Guy if Hulu didn't pay for the licensing rights.

Netflix is the same. People from banned countries use VPN to make it seem they are in the US to watch content.

Solution is simply to get 10 people to buy in on a small hosted server in the US and run your own proxy. Small enough to avoid detection and people can still watch Family guy

CimmerianX REquest the right card (110 comments)

You know you can request Credit cards and IDs without the RFID chip in it. I do this all the time with Visa and AMEX. I request cards without the Chip.... problem solved.

Multiple Manufacturers Push Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars, But Can They Catch Tesla?

CimmerianX Makes no sense (293 comments)

Sure, instead of fully electric, where cars can charge off of the current grid (with the right outlet installed), let's invest is a fully proprietary fuel source.

Customers Creating Fake Amazon Pages To Get Cheap Electronics At Walmart

CimmerianX Not Fraud (287 comments)

... and I'll tell you why. Because if I get my LLC to get 1,000 people to each Pony up some money for a PS4, then I use these types of tactics to purchase PS4 from other retailers at a huge discount after having pooled the money from my 1,000 customers (divinding it up so no 1 customer funded 1 whole ps4) , then I provide each customer with a PS4, and then I run to the bank yelling yippee at all the money I just earned...well if anyone calls fraud, I might just get a bailout from the government to keep my LLC in place since I serve such a good purpose in providing access to cheap PS4s. Then the LLC can get a fine of 10% of 1 year's profits as I laugh from my sailboat.

Sony To Take On Netflix With Playstation Vue

CimmerianX End of netflix on PS (130 comments)

I can almost 100% guarantee that Sony will pull the Netflix functionality from all PS models.

Just like how the PS4 will no longer stream from a home media server because they started to offer their own streaming music service under the guise of "it's a more intuitive and streamlined process for the customer', we will see sony replace netflix with Vue citing the same bullshit.

Don't think they will? How's your PS3 linux partition? Oh wait, sony made that disappear when it suited them too.

Pirate Bay Co-founder Arrested In Northeastern Thailand

CimmerianX He should have... (189 comments)

Just think that if he had sold billions of bad mortgages and defrauded both investors and the public sending the entire world economy to the brink of collapse, he would have gotten no jail time and a multi-billion dollar bailout.

Instead he built a web page that lets people find trackers, and he must be put away for life.

'Merica!!!!!

Skilled Foreign Workers Treated as Indentured Servants

CimmerianX Re:Ive done this (284 comments)

Congrats to you.... I really mean it. But beware, because large companies no longer have any loyalty to their employees. If you can be replaced with a new visa recipient at a lower wage, you will be.

Speed Cameras In Chicago Earn $50M Less Than Expected

CimmerianX Re:Easy to solve - calibrate them to overestimate (398 comments)

You don't increase time on the yellow.... you let the yellow turn red on the same timer, but you leave both directions red for 2 seconds just to ensure the intersection is clear before showing a green light. That's how you make it safer.

JP Morgan Chase Breach Compromised Data of 76 Million Households

CimmerianX Sensitive information (76 comments)

Chase is really spinning this by saying that no sensitive information was taken in the hack.

Well, it seems that the crackers now have tens of millions of *confirmed* Names, addresses, phone numbers, and emails at the very least. That is a freakin treasure trove of information.

I like my privacy and take great care not to let information out into the world. But Doctors, banks, and gov always want every bit of info on you so they make the best targets.

PayPal Integrates Bitcoin Processors BitPay, Coinbase and GoCoin

CimmerianX Paypal Sucks (56 comments)

Yep - Let the paypal bashing begin. Wait until Paypal acts as it's own clearinghouse for bitcoin transactions. It wants to keep control over refunds to the buyers and still wants to be able to 'freeze' your account like it does now.
