Reaction To the Sony Hack Is 'Beyond the Realm of Stupid'

CodeReign Re:Land of the free (573 comments)

Or when I pull up in my driveway and see that someone is already inside my home or garage, I should just let them finish stealing whatever they'd like and file a report. That's what insurance is for, right? Just let the thieves, crooks, and dopeheads have free reign because people like you want to call me a "wussy". Got news for ya, boss. Real life exists outside of your gated community and sleepy suburban burgs. Lots of us live in the real world, and real shit happens all day, every day.

Yep pretty much. Just because someone is robbing you doesn't mean there is a need to kill them. You just said you have insurance so you don't have any liability until you pull out that gun.

Sony Hacks Continue: PlayStation Hit By Lizard Squad Attack

CodeReign Re:Sony needs to invest in their IT (170 comments)

Sony doesn't care about their security. Their "Action Cam" comes with a disclaimer saying that the device isn't secure and if you connect it to a wireless network anyone has access to all of its functionality.

NYC To Replace Most of Its Payphones With Free Gigabit WiFi In 2015

CodeReign Re:My guess? (106 comments)

Eh, people tracking isn't "evil" but as far as I know the iPhone 6 sends out fake MAC addresses anyway so it'll fail unless you're connected.

Amazon Forced To Reboot EC2 To Patch Bug In Xen

CodeReign Re:Compared to Azure (94 comments)

I mean I'm an Oracle FMW developer working with several Oracle servers having serious uptime and SLAs but even then, hiccups happen. A good developer programs with the expectation that not everything will work smoothly and so long as not everything breaks at once I could have a DB fall off the face of the earth or a server get shot and we'd still chug along with minimal perceived downtime.

Amazon Forced To Reboot EC2 To Patch Bug In Xen

CodeReign Re:migratable vms? (94 comments)

I'm not saying migrate to another facility but to another machine. If that's what you also meant would you be able to provide a source? That seems like a very very big oversite.

Amazon Forced To Reboot EC2 To Patch Bug In Xen

CodeReign Re:Compared to Azure (94 comments)

You are actually required to program your application to expect failed database calls.

Yes, of course you are. Only an idiot would expect 100% of db calls to be successful.

Minecraft Creator Halts Plans For Oculus Version Following Facebook Acquisition

CodeReign Bah, it's @notch (300 comments)

@notch fails at life and would have halted development due to being slightly cumbersome in the near future anyway, just like he did with all the other promised features.

-RIP minecraft alpha.

Facebook Introduces Hack: Statically Typed PHP

CodeReign Re:So ... they re-invented Asp.Net? (230 comments)

ASP.NET requires a heavy application server.

As a Java EE developer I'd advocate the benefits of proper application servers/infrastructure but ASP/Java are slow to release languages. You need infrastructure and planning while PHP is a great language for systems that don't have huge reliance requirements and need the project done yesterday. (and even then obviously Facebook has managed to make it very reliable).

Additionally ASP.NET (with C# as you didn't specify) is statically typed. Even the "var" type is resolved at compile time to the base class of whatever it's first instantiation returns.

New 'pCell' Technology Could Bring Next Generation Speeds To 4G Networks

CodeReign Re:What about recieve? (120 comments)

I doubt it, they'd calculate latency from tower to tower and analyze the data on the fly to pull out more accurate results. (that's how I read it anyway)
