Diantre Re:Chinese cell phones (173 comments)

This pisses me off to no end. "China could care less" makes no fucking sense.

How the Global Seed Vault Aims To Fight Future Famine

Diantre Re:Surely a bet for (or on) climate change? (115 comments)

They will only be controlled if regular people are deluded into believing so and allow it.

I totally can't see that happening. Regular people being fooled by corporations, against their best interests? Nah....

Beware the Garden of Steven

Diantre Re:FUD! (580 comments)

Using a command line is like second nature to some people, yet most of my generation (born with the fall of the USSR) have never even seen one. Remember that what is simple and straight forward to you may become arcane and mysterious for the future users.

New Tool Blocks Downloads From Malicious Sites

Diantre Re:How long has Spybot Search and Destroy been out (192 comments)

Unless the malware program actually deletes Spybot as well as AVG and also changes your DNS so it redirects to a phony chinese search site instead of Safer Networking's site. This happened to me not long ago.

New Tool Blocks Downloads From Malicious Sites

Diantre Re:how about just flipping the damn default? (192 comments)

I recently got one of thos fake AV, and I never clicked anything. It's not like they ask you all the time. No, I did not download SpecialVideoCodec.exe from searching "Extreme Midget Fart Porn XXX" on google. I was browsing a forum on cats and I suddenly had MalwareDoctor installed. Luckily I somewhat know my way around computers and only saw this as a challenge.

Microsoft Patents OS Shutdown

Diantre Re:A BSOD Shutdown Too? (404 comments)

God, I use PCs at home and Macs at work. I absolutely loathe clicking FORCE QUIT on Pro Tools when it freezes (every 2 minutes). I have to click 20 times without it doing anything, with this fucking beachball laughing at me, pretending everything's alright and "just works". Give me a good old "CTRL+ALT+DEL, Processes, click on Pro Tools, Delete" any time of the day :) Ugly, but it works.

Diantre Re:Jobs isn't betting his platform on it... (483 comments)

They have no interest in making sucky products and anything that masses of people buy almost definition cannot be a superior experience.

They have no qualms about selling sucky products, though. Have you visited the app store?

Rethinking Computer Design For an Optical World

Diantre Latency? (187 comments)

IANAEE (I Am Not An Electrical Engineer) Pardon my possible stupidity, but what was keeping us from putting the RAM a few feet from the CPU? The way I understand it, electrons don't move much slower than light. Of course you might lose current.

FTC Wants Browsers To Block Online Tracking

Diantre Re:why Opt-out? (205 comments)

Yes, but they had to deal with a fraction of the traffic they get now, while only displaying text and a few 100x100 gifs.

Heat Ray Gun Fails Final Test; Nixed From War

Diantre Re:Not to worry! (299 comments)

Amen, brother. Amen. Once I was working the sound system for a DJs night and one of them kept calling me a pussy for wearing earplugs. I blasted a 15 kHz sine in his monitoring headphones and told him that's what I heard 24/7 because I wasn't a pussy before. He stopped doing it :)
