NASA's Manned Rocket Contract: $4.2 Billion To Boeing, $2.6 Billion To SpaceX

Dj Stingray Re:I hate to be this guy... (186 comments)

So why are people of the world still dying of starvation? Maybe instead of throwing money at the problem we can research what works. That was my point, STOP spending on things like space until the problem is fixed, if the trillions aren't enough, we aren't doing good enough or care enough. It isn't about the money, it's about actually fixing the problems we have before we move forward elsewhere.

Flaimbait for wanting people to be fed watered and shltered? I expected more from /. but then again, why would I expect more from a bunch of desk jockeys?

NASA's Manned Rocket Contract: $4.2 Billion To Boeing, $2.6 Billion To SpaceX

Dj Stingray I hate to be this guy... (186 comments)

...but people are still dying of starvation and lack of water on THIS planet. =\

I know space exploration is very important, but shit, let's get real here. I feel guilty driving a newer model Honda Civic knowing that if I bought something cheaper I could maybe feed someone less fortunate.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

Dj Stingray A question: (912 comments)

To religious theists, do you remember when you choose to be religious? If so, at what age did you decide to become a religious person who believes in a god?

One thing that bothers me is, whenever people say, "oh, you are an atheist, so you don't believe there is anything after death?" That has NOTHING to do with being an atheist, all atheism is, is not thinking there is a great creator, you can be atheist and fully believe in an afterlife, ghosts or even praying.

L.A. Police: All Cars In L.A. Are Under Investigation

Dj Stingray Don't they need... (405 comments)

Reasonable suspicion or probable cause first?

Nothing is reasonable about scanning every single license plate you see. If the camera could scan the color/make/year etc of the vehicle, the compare that against known stolen vehicles or vehicles used in other crimes FIRST, then I could see them scanning the plate and doing further investigation, but just blindly scanning plates and recording their location is very disturbing.

Ask Slashdot: Will the NSA Controversy Drive People To Use Privacy Software?

Dj Stingray Snowden nailed it... (393 comments)

Doesn't matter if you are on the "up and up". Things can be taken out of context. Might as well not give them ANY ammo to use. They say to always exercise your right to be silent. This is a preemptive way to do that.

I think you would be stupid not to try and keep your personal information away from strangers. Also make sure to kill your RFID chips in your credit cards. But for the rest of you, ignorance is bliss. Enjoy.

Zuckerberg: Betting On HTML5 Was Facebook's Biggest Mistake

Dj Stingray Flash (290 comments)

Iunno, I found it ironic that when Flash first came out, it was a way to create and inbed animation and sound into a website with very little weight. I actually used to make Flash sites actually smaller than HTML ones with raster graphics.

Then everyone decided to make Flash sites really heavy. Instead of going the route I thought it would go. The computers and the internet back then were too slow to handle those sites.

Now that we have the bandwidth and computing power, everyone seems to be bashing on Flash. When it is the best developer tool for vector based animation around. It's all backwardsy to me. I didn't expect it to be such a big deal that Adobe bought Macromedia.
