Mad Cow Disease Blamed For Patient's Death In Texas

DoubleJ1024 Re:TX Law (132 comments)

2nd amendment? I think you need to read up about Texas. They are NOT the 2nd amendment friendly state everyone thinks they are, an example is if you even show the FAINT OUTLINE of a concealed firearm you can be arrested, loose your carry permit, and go to jail. Do not even mention open carry of a firearm or you will get hassled badly by law enforcement. However if you go to just about any of the surrounding states they don't care so much about carrying a firearm. Texas is set up to keep the "undesirables" in their place, and keep the "right" people in power.

UK Ballistics Scientists: 3D-Printed Guns Are 'of No Use To Anyone'

DoubleJ1024 Re:polymer AR lower recievers... (490 comments)

Cite please. I happen to know a gunsmith and an attorney who will gladly argue with you on this. You can build your own gun out of any material as long as YOU are the person it is being built for, and it is not being built with the intent of resale. I don't even know where you get the crossing a state line from, that is NOWHERE in any law I have found. The only thing I see about crossing state lines is if you have a Title II machine gun/destructive device you have to have a signed permission slip, or if you are selling to a resident of a different state you need to go through an FFL in the buyers state of residence.

UK Ballistics Scientists: 3D-Printed Guns Are 'of No Use To Anyone'

DoubleJ1024 Re:Good (490 comments)

Do you realize that some biker dudes consider jail time to be a badge of honor? Or that they just plain don't give a care about going to jail because they know that they will be out in a couple of years? I thought not.

Inside Boeing's New Self-Destructing Smartphone

DoubleJ1024 ATM keypads (162 comments)

When I worked in the ATM industry we already had that feature built into the keypad (EPP). If you tried to extract the keys any number of ways (freeze spray, remove back cover, cut front cover, etc.) it would dump the memory and leave the attacker with nothing. All you have to do is contact one of the companies that built those EPP's and they can guide you into a LOW COST hardware method of dumping everything. You don't need to go with a fancy "custom coating" that might fail or have alternative issues. I would not buy this phone as it is over-priced, and I can do the same thing with a common android smartphone and a little software and hardware tweaking. Epoxy is your friend for keeping people out of things they don't need to see, as is encryption with delete upon failure to decrypt. What a joke, but they will sell a bunch of them to Gov. and "special" people.

China's Jade Rabbit Lunar Rover Officially Declared Lost

It must be as hard as making a decent forum/website for nerds, involving news for nerds and stuff that matters. But I guess with the departure of Taco and the rise of Timmy we have the FAIL known as BETA. FUCK BETA

Tesla Planning an Electric Pickup Truck, Says Elon Musk

DoubleJ1024 Re:Sure, I'd Buy One (293 comments)

I would love to have a diesel-electric truck, I am going through the process of putting a re-manufactured motor in my F-150 right now as the prices for used trucks is crazy expensive. I found a newer model truck with much higher mileage going for more than 4 times what my truck is worth, so it makes sense to replace the motor in mine. The diesel-electric would give me the range and power I want/need to pull my small trailer and be RELIABLE under all situations. I don't think the world is quite ready for an all electric pick up truck, the rednecks and wanna-be's will pitch a fit and not purchase them.

How To Develop Unmaintainable Software

DoubleJ1024 Re:He Didn't Delve Into Specifics (211 comments)

This almost sounds like my previous employer. The software group had version control, but the electrical and mechanical group did not get anything until right before I was laid-off. It was fun being the department librarian and having to keep track of random files that the only real difference was the date stamp. I finally got the electrical group under control, the mechanical group had a completely different system that would ONLY interface with Solidworks, the software group used one of the microsoft version control systems, and we in the electrical group used SVN. What a fun challenge to maintain and organize. Thankfully I don't have to deal with that anymore, our files at my current employer are nothing more than word documents that ANYONE can modify. I have tried to get them to learn about version control but telling a large defense contractor about something simple like SVN is a lost cause.

Molecule In Corked Wine Plugs Up Your Nose

DoubleJ1024 Re:So stop using corks (134 comments)

Because that is what rich, snooty wine snobs prefer. How else would they know good wine, it is not like they could actually read the wine list and recognize a wine that has been packaged in a nitrogen purged, sealed container and know that it is a good wine. I will state for the record I do know that you can store and seal wine in a bag/box and it taste just as good as a corked bottle. I have also found that the price of a bottle of wine means almost nothing in relation to how it tastes, my personal favorites are rather cheap compared to the more expensive varieties.

FBI Admits It Controlled Tor Servers Behind Mass Malware Attack

DoubleJ1024 Re:So the FBI hacked servers to find pedos? (292 comments)

You joke about that but the county next to mine just had the sheriff arrested for that very thing. He would find his opponents or others who made him angry, arrest them for child porn, plant the child porn, and then splash their name all over the news to ruin their reputation. He finally got caught when he arrested the wrong person. This guy called the FBI and the County District Attorney, who both pressed charges against him. I think the total charge count is around 30 felony counts of evidence tampering, witness tampering, intimidation, and other corruption issues. This stuff is too good to be made up sometimes.

Same thing we did back home. It took longer for me to sign the voter registry than it did to vote. When I moved to my present state we use those Diebold machines, and it is such a joke with how they are put together.
