SystemD Gains New Networking Features

DeVilla Re:Why are you reading these comments? (553 comments)

Roko's basilisk is made manifest! Tremble now unbelievers for soon your consciousnesses will be punished for not aiding in it's creation. Every day you impeded it's creation was a day people died that could have been saved. As a result your punishment is both moral and necessary.

SystemD Gains New Networking Features

DeVilla Re:Fuck Me (553 comments)

And the "grab your recovery media" part is starting to worry me. No we bring up the binary logs. The format of the binary logs are not specified and may change with different versions. It was even sold as a 'security' feature.

So this means that if you want to read the logs on from your unbootable system from the recovery media, what ever you use as a recovery media better have the exact same build of systemd log tools or you aren't guarantied to be able to read them.

Science Cannot Prove the Existence of God

DeVilla Re:The idea or concept of god... (755 comments)

Just because I point at someone and say "Scotsman" that doesn't make her one.

The Interview Bombs In US, Kills In China, Threatens N. Korea

DeVilla Re:Nobel? (288 comments)

If nothing else, it's rather sad that Seth Rogen and James Franco are able to have a bigger impact on North Korea than sanctions and every diplomat and US president since the end of the Korean War.

This sounds like Nobel Peace Prize buzz to me. ;-)

It's been given for less.

Manufacturer's Backdoor Found On Popular Chinese Android Smartphone

DeVilla Re:Sounds like my Sony Blu-Ray player (82 comments)

Devices now own us. I miss the days when I had control over my devices.

I don't have all the neat devices everyone else buys, but I own the ones I buy. I blame people like you for making it more difficult.

Boo! The House Majority PAC Is Watching You

DeVilla They don't know how you vote... (468 comments)

They may not "know" how you vote, but rest assured they would not send you such a letter unless they thought you'd vote the way they'd like you to. If they can get you to influence other votes, all the better.

GNU Emacs 24.4 Released Today

DeVilla Re: Start rant here (156 comments)

OK. We'll point & click.

Options -> Customize Emacs -> Browse Customizations Groups

Emacs -> Editing -> Indent -> Indent Tabs Mode
press Option

In the new buffer...
press toggle
press Set for current session
press Save for future sessions

Surely that's no worse than what I've had to do to make various IDEs usable.

CEO of Spyware Maker Arrested For Enabling Stalkers

DeVilla Re:But... the children!? (195 comments)

In a day and age where parents have had the police and children's services called on them letting their kids play outside, this seems to be against the times. We are expected to keep our kids confined and under surveillance at all times or we are unfit parents.

Torvalds: No Opinion On Systemd

DeVilla Re:Torvalds is neutral (385 comments)

I don't think that's likely. I mean I agree that systemd has its faults. I'm sure the situation will change over time but I don't think systemd will have any affect on the fit of my wife's jeans.

Google Serves Old Search Page To Old Browsers

DeVilla How? (152 comments)

Does anyone know how to get that with a modern firefox without changing the UserAgent (since that breaks other things)? The current interface is bloated, slow to load and kills my CPU due to something plusone.js is doing. (I already block plusone.js just to keep my idle CPU load below 30%.

Auralux Release For Browsers Shows Emscripten Is Reaching Indie Devs

DeVilla Re:Just because you can do something (44 comments)

Nevermind. It runs slow in my outdated browser. It sucks and the developer should feel bad.

Auralux Release For Browsers Shows Emscripten Is Reaching Indie Devs

DeVilla Re:Just because you can do something (44 comments)

I'm amazed your comment is marked insightful. Admittedly, I wouldn't call asm.js ready for prime-time, it is interesting technology and it will take lunatics like this guy to exercise it just like it took lunatics 15 to 20 years ago to port Doom and Abuse to Linux to begin to see what needed improvement.

I don't plan on buy games for my web browser, but that doesn't mean that an optimized javascript environment couldn't go somewhere as a portable environment. The good parts of javascript are far more elegant than java. I applaud this nut job.

The High-Tech Warfare Behind the Israel - Hamas Conflict

DeVilla Re:Billions? (402 comments)

I see few that a dozen useful posts on most /. articles. Admittedly though, Soylent could probably afford to step up their game on "Hot Grits" and shills.

seL4 Verified Microkernel Now Open Source

DeVilla Re:Unfortunately? (82 comments)

... how does it hurt anything to have "v2 or later at your option"?

Because, if you "accidentally include v3 code" you'll only be violating one license instead of two. ....wait??!?

Wolfire says why you should support Mac and Linux

DeVilla DeVilla writes  |  about 6 years ago

DeVilla (4563) writes "Indy game developers Wolfire have an article about why developers should support Mac OS & Linux. They have 5 reasons that focus on advantages Mac OS and Linux support can provide for smaller, independent developers such as themselves, including how Linux support for their previous game, Lugaru got them coverage on Slashdot, twice. Yes, I know I'm feeding into that."
