Cpt_Kirks Re:Credit cards? (80 comments)

It is a credit union. It's the fact that it's a debit card that they are charging me.

Home Depot Says Breach Affected 56 Million Cards

Cpt_Kirks Re:Credit cards? (80 comments)

I was just informed my DEBIT card is on the list, and it's going to cost me $25 to have it replaced.

The least those assholes at THD could do would be to pay for that.

The New 501(c)(3) and the Future of Open Source In the US

Cpt_Kirks Executive Branch (228 comments)

The IRS falls under the Executive Branch, and the current executive has not been shy about using the IRS to aid his friends, and hurt his enemies.

I have to suppose he considers open source an enemy.

Netflix Gets What It Pays For: Comcast Streaming Speeds Skyrocket

Cpt_Kirks Time to Join the Collective (328 comments)

The other evil empire (AT&T) is royally screwing us via U-Verse, jacking up every fee, every month.

We are thinking about dumping U-Verse and getting JUST internet from Comcast (no land line, no cable).

We can get about 50 digital channels over the air, plus streaming.

YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED!

Cpt_Kirks Re:I think this is bullshit (1746 comments)

Free Speech took a shot to the head. Political Correctness bullshit seems to trump it, every damn time.

Frankly NOW I'm thinking of totally dumping Firefox.

Why Is Microsoft Setting More Money On Fire With Surface 2?

Cpt_Kirks Re:You see this in small businesses (616 comments)

I think they were in SUCH a rush to get ANYTHING out the door, they literally had no clue what was in the bill.

"We'll read it after we pass it", was really meant by (Bless Her Heart) Pelosi.

Now, stop shitting in a M$ bash with politics...

Why Is Microsoft Setting More Money On Fire With Surface 2?

Cpt_Kirks You see this in small businesses (616 comments)

You see small businesses make this mistake all the time: "If we only double down, and do what is NOT working HARDER..."

Then, they go under. If M$ does not shed the Ballmer curse soon, Apple will BUY them.

The Post-Lecture Classroom

Cpt_Kirks In use now (169 comments)

My son is taking Algebra II class in college that is using this method. So far, so good. He says that being able to watch the lecture, then go into class to ask the instructor questions relating to the lecture and the homework is like having a tutor.

I don't know how well it would work for more "not centric" classes, though.
