Democrats Crowdsourcing To Vote Palin In Primaries

EmperorKagato NOT AN ARTICLE (1128 comments)

Why was this approved for Slashdot? This is not news. This is some lame attempt to drag democrats in the mud when there is clearly no democratic party member that is behind this website.

This is someone's successful attempt at site promotion. How did the mods sleep on this or should I be expecting more articles on Slashdot that have no references to actual news?

Tron: Legacy — Too Much Imagination Required?

EmperorKagato Sub-moronic script?! (429 comments)

"With negative reviews of the new movie often referencing the 'sub-moronic script that feels like it was written by people who had never used a computer"

There's a direct reference to open-source software "the way that Flynn intended" in the first scene.

Obama Wants Broader Internet Wiretap Authority

EmperorKagato RTFA (646 comments)

But as an example, one official said, an investigation into a drug cartel earlier this year was stymied because smugglers used peer-to-peer software, which is difficult to intercept because it is not routed through a central hub. Agents eventually installed surveillance equipment in a suspect’s office, but that tactic was “risky,” the official said, and the delay “prevented the interception of pertinent communications.”

There's a reason behind this issue and it's concerning law enforcement. Unless you guys believe we should allow all drugs to enter the United States freely.

Even the cheapest solutions $20k to $40k range have redundancy.

It's not a SAN if it has 1 point of failure, it's just a virtual storage box or NAS. Hell they could have spent just $10k and just run a windows file server with a bunch of disks in a redundancy configuration.

I run a SAN network and you have no idea how much I'm raging over the stupidity of this incident right now.

So... local law enforcement violates the law when they close off an investigation site to the press?

I don't see your logic on how this violates the law for freedom of press.

Liberal Watchdog Questions White House Gmail Use

EmperorKagato Politics don't belong here (283 comments)

I swear reading this article thread is no better than reading a thread on /new/s.

Here's an article calling for an investigation (which ethics violations may not exist) and most of the comments are nothing but hatred for the administration and lack of transparency. Then you get upset that backroom deals are made yet you still hear the deals made on the news and see them in the bills proposed ONLINE.

Does the definition of transparency mean you want to have influence in the conversation?

How can you claim that Obama took over healthcare when the other side is claiming the Healthcare bill does very little?
How can you claim that Obama took over the auto-industry when the other side is upset that government doesn't have total control of production and management?
How can you claim that Obama does nothing when in fact he's covered a great percentage of his campaign promises which very few politicians can?

This is just the pain before the love, this is what transparency feels like. Everyone was quiet several years ago about the government because of the lack of visibility.

Take a step back and think about it for once ... please?

EmperorKagato Re:UO wasn't that much fun really (480 comments)

Yes but it is low risk PVP compared to other MMOs like EVE Online. Sure your armor will get damaged and you may lose experience points and gold but you won't lose the items on your character which always cost way more than how much you're carrying (in gold).

Obama calls for National CTO

EmperorKagato EmperorKagato writes  |  more than 6 years ago

EmperorKagato writes "Google Inc.'s Headquarters Mountain View, California: Presidential Candidate Barrack Obama talked about his plans to connect Americans through technology.

"Together, we could open up government and invite citizens in, while connecting all of America to 21st century broadband. We could use technology to help achieve universal health care, to reach for a clean energy future, and to ensure that young Americans can compete and win in the global economy"
Obama, a strong supporter of Net Neutrality, expects to achieve this goal by appointing a Chief Technology Officer that would ensure that every government agency is meeting 21st century standards."

Although, financial sanctions against North Korea will be addressed by a group involving the six nations: North Korea, China, Japan, United States, Russia, and South Korea."

Using clever video titles like Hawaiian Punch and Orange Juice entire movies like Rush Hour 3 and Transformers are hard to find.
