Google Fiber To Launch In Austin, Texas In December

DocSavage64109 Re:Gbps speeds (88 comments)

Maybe the ACs point was hidden behind the three repeats of obviously mistaken "100 Gbps" speeds. I'm pretty sure nobody out there is getting "100 Gbps" internet. Now if it was 100 mbps, he'd probably have been fine :D

As Prison Population Sinks, Jails Are a Steal

DocSavage64109 Re:Prison population (407 comments)

They're probably the ones buying prisons for pennies on the dollar. Watch crime somehow go back up to previous levels right after the for-profit prison industry buys up all the government prisons.

Microsoft Partners With Docker

DocSavage64109 Re:What? (104 comments)

I thought all the articles are about how cloud computing is insecure, deleting your files, and how Amazon is loosing $2 Billion/year on their hosting service and may just close up service on your servers out of nowhere.

DocSavage64109 Re:100 amperes is a manageable value (395 comments)

Um yeah, just let me plug my cord into this 10,000 volt wall outlet over here... That doesn't sound dangerous at all! :D

Fighting the Culture of 'Worse Is Better'

DocSavage64109 Re:Database upgrades (240 comments)

What are you talking about? We still use a foxpro based database and it works even on Windows 8.1!

There looks to be a pole sticking out the back that you could put weights on for balance purposes.

Ask Slashdot: Why Can't Google Block Spam In Gmail?

DocSavage64109 Re:WTF? (261 comments)

I know, right? I never get the good emails. I just get continual emails from GM about some guy's onstar and service appointments for his minivan - none of which have an unsubscribe.

Ask Slashdot: Why Can't Google Block Spam In Gmail?

DocSavage64109 Re:WTF? (261 comments)

Lol. You're a lot meaner about this than I am, though I did get a certain pleasure in cancelling the facebook account that someone opened with my address.

FBI Says It Will Hire No One Who Lies About Illegal Downloading

DocSavage64109 Re: if you have a penchant for lying... (578 comments)

Now we just need the FBI to vet all our politicians. It'd be interesting to see what our government would look like if noone lied.

Tesla Announces Dual Motors, 'Autopilot' For the Model S

DocSavage64109 Re:Performance (283 comments)

Real drag racers already have to contend with getting detached retinas, and I don't think there's a solution yet.

Why the Trolls Will Always Win

DocSavage64109 Re:More feminist bullshit (717 comments)

Since you brought up politics, this harmless "words on a screen" sounds a lot like what resulted in the shooting of Senator Gabrielle Giffords. There are way too many crazy people in the world to be putting people's personal information out there. This is also much like what happened to Valerie Plame during the Bush administration.

Why post AC? Are you afraid of the same thing happening to you?

Why the Trolls Will Always Win

DocSavage64109 Re:More feminist bullshit (717 comments)

Words on a screen with her address, social security number, and a made up story designed to manipulate the public into wanting to do something to her? I can imagine a campaign like that being rather frightening.

2014 Nobel Prize In Physics Awarded To the Inventors of the Blue LED

DocSavage64109 Re:Saving Earth's resources? (243 comments)

With that mindset, we might as well be driving gas guzzlers from the 70s and never bother with trying to conserve anything.

DARPA Delving Into the Black Art of Super Secure Software Obfuscation

DocSavage64109 Re:If a compiler can... (124 comments)

Another poster mentions that a 16 bit function consisting of "15 AND gates" takes 31 GB of space and takes 3 hours to process. That actually does seem beyond a human to unobfuscate, but I bet a well written tool should be capable (if they can actually find the part that matters in that 31 GB).

Online Creeps Inspire a Dating App That Hides Women's Pictures

DocSavage64109 Re:To Hell with it. (482 comments)

Instead of shooting yourself, try a vacation to Vegas or Thailand and partaking of available services. Or hell, quit your job and explore the world.

Lost Opportunity? Windows 10 Has the Same Minimum PC Requirements As Vista

DocSavage64109 Re:1GB (554 comments)

I work at a non-profit and have installed win 7 on machines with as little as 512MB ram. As long as you don't run any antivirus, they are usable and a 1GB machine is just fine for internet browsing and office apps. Now if you want to install an antivirus, you are talking 1.5GB minimum for a responsive system. I'd bet your wife's laptop had a bunch of always running corporate junkware on it and it may also have full disk encryption to deal with.
