Half-Life Episode 1 Gold, Details on 2 and 3

EnronHaliburton2004 Re:Unfortunately, I won't be playing this... (92 comments)

HL2 refused to run because too much time had passed since the last time Steam had updated.

Interesting. It's been 6 months since I last started Steam-- last week I fired up Steam to download The Lost Coast. Steam updated in less then an hour, and experienced no problems whatsoever.

I think Steam is a pretty good idea. Sure beats having to drive to Best Buy when I just want to play a game during the evening.

Moderator points! At long last!!!

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 8 years ago

At long last, I now have moderator points. I've been focusing on things outside my Slashdot-troll life, and I haven't gotten into any large flamewars with anyone recently. I apparently met the appropriate requirements to get mod points.

Metamoderating probably helped also.

w00t!

You have 5 Moderator Points! Use 'em or lose 'em!

Poll: Worst arrest (innocent or guilty) of your lifetime?

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

I submitted this as a Slashdot poll, but I doubt it will be accepted (bad formatting, they never accept my stuff).

I dug this up from an old post.

---------------------------

Worst arrest of your lifetime:

1. Never. I'm a law abiding citizen.
2. Never. I run away.
3. A few misdemenors
4. Violent offense
5. Alcohol or drug-related offenses
6. Non-financial-fraud related theft offenses
7. I'm writing this from death row.
8. I stole the money, burned down the office and now live on a beach in Mexico with my red stapler.
9. It's copyright infringement, not stealing.
10. In a past life I ruled the world with an Iron first, Crushed my enemies, saw them driven before me, and heard the lamentations of their women!

Quote Archive: Work Harder! A Few Corporations Receive ...

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Just storing anoter one of my .sigs for evidence when the feds drag me off to the camps.

Work Harder! A Few Corporations Receive Millions in Welfare and Are Depending On You!

I replaced it with the following shocking statistic:

94% of Republicans voted to renew the Patriot Act in 2005

(I hope the math is right. 214 votes for the act / 231 total votes = 94% ).

Dear Red States, from New California

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Dear Red States,

We're ticked off at the way you've treated California, and we've decided we're leaving. We intend to form our own country, and we're taking the other Blue States with us.

In case you aren't aware, that includes Hawaii,Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country of New California.

To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states. We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get Elliot Spitzer. You get Ken Lay. We get the Statue of Liberty. You get OpryLand. We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom. We get Harvard. You get Ole'Miss.

We get 85 percent of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama. We get two-thirds of the tax revenue; you get to make the red states pay their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.

Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and anti-war, and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets coming home.

With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80 percent of the country's fresh water, 92 percent of the nation's fresh fruit, 95 percent of America's quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners), 90 percent of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools, plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88 percent of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92 percent of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100 percent of the tornadoes, 90 percent of the hurricanes, 99 percent of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100 percent of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

Additionally, 38 percent of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62 percent believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44 percent say that evolution is only a theory, 53 percent that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61 percent of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

By the way, we're taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico.

Sincerely,

Author Unknown in New California

.sig Archive: You are in a maze of twisty political parties

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

I'll be switching Sigs, and just want a place archive my old signatures.

You are in a maze of twisty political parties, all alike.

I like this one. I'm not pro-Democrat, and I'm certainly not a Republican, so I liked the bipartisan slant on this .sig.

Trollbot(?) sightings - Random Citibank/UPS responses

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Anyone else notice the ton of random AC reponses to the last few submissions? Probably 50% of the articles are way offtopic--- talking about Citibank or UPS instead of Japanese Geek Underground.

http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/06/07/1622203&tid=99

Interesting new Trollbot?

Most of the responses seem to focus on financial or privacy issues with the recent UPS/Citibank issue. I wonder if some trollbot is simply copying the the responses from an old response and pasting it into the response form.

Or perhaps it's not a trollbot, and the Database is screwed up.

"Megatroll" - 80 responses about mobile phones & sms!

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Woot. My intention wasn't trolling, but I spawned a thread about Mobile Phones & SMS with 80 responses so far (rough estimate).

I think that beats my previous record, which was about was 74 responses.

My intention is not trolling... I'm just posting my gut feeling about some dumb technologies. Ah, but what a response from this pro-technology group, eh?

The editors should pay me for my pageviews :)

3rd party cookies being set during Google Searches?

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

I noticed a change in when using Google to search. When I receive the Google search results page, one of the advertising sites tries to set a cookie on my machine. This has happened with eBay (since they advertise on just about every page), and a few other groups.

- Turn on cookie detection
- Click on the following link: http://www.google.com/search?q=dynamic+dns
- dyndns.org tries to set a cookie

I just throught it was wierd. Maybe this was happening before, and I didn't notice it, or I was blocking third party cookies.

I just thought it was interesting.

Update: You have over 200 friends and foes. (Thank you!)

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Update:

Some kind person just bought me a subscription!

Thank you!
----------------------------------------

Holy crap-- I hit the upper limit on the number of relationships.

I tried to add Branden Robinson the Debian leader because he listened to my comments in this discussion. But this action brought me to the 200-relationship limit, and got the following message:

You have over 200 friends and foes at the moment.

This puts you over our limit of 200 relationships that we allow. At this point you may only remove relationships with users.

So do you want to remove your relationship with Overfiend?

I don't want to de-friend people, so I guess I'll start de-foe people. It's better to encourage your friends then to punish your foes.

Pres. Bush and Jeanna Bush flash sign of Satan!

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Before President Bush's swear in ceremony, Jeanna Bush flashed the "El Coronado" hand signal announcing her allegiance to Satan.

Update, Jan 20 @3:30PM

Later that day, President Bush made it clear that he too was a Satanist.

Update, Jan 21 @9:00AM

My god, there's a whole league of Satanists, include Bill Clinton, Prince William and Elizabeth Taylor!!! Although half of those are ASL for "I love you".

For reference, here is the famous photo of Anton Lavey, founder of the Church of Satan, descretely displaying "The Symbol" ... ok, his hand is reversed...

I can't even meta-moderate

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

It's come to my attention that I cannot even meta-moderate on Slashdot.

I have never seen the little "Have you Meta Moderated recently? Regular Meta Moderators are more likely to get mod points." line across the top of my screen with this account.

Dang...

Why do the Red States require so many government subsidies?

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Ah, beautiful. I've made this argument to several Republicans from Republican voting states, it's nice to see this other person making the same argument. Best constructive use of profanities I've read in a while.

Republicans constantly talk about responsibility, low taxes, less subsidies and less government overall.

But the truth is that most Republican states receive federal subsidies at the expense of the Democratic states.

The next dickwad who says, "It's your money, not the government's money" is gonna get their ass kicked. Nine of the ten states that get the most federal fucking dollars and pay the least... can you guess? Go on, guess. That's right, motherfucker, they're red states. And eight of the ten states that receive the least and pay the most? It's too easy, asshole, they're blue states. It's not your money, assholes, it's fucking our money. What was that Real American Value you were spouting a minute ago? Self reliance? Try this for self reliance: buy your own fucking stop signs, assholes.

The four kinds of Bush supporters

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

There are four kinds of people who support Bush:

  1. The Fool - People who are too gullible to realize that Bush has lied.
  2. The Coward - People who are too scared to vote for anyone else.
  3. The Codependent - People who enjoy being lied too and live in a fantasy world put forth by the President, where America is still noble, secure and respected around the world. At night, he beats you black and blue, but you keep quiet.
  4. The Pig - People who agree with the lie and who want to continue the lie for their own nefarious purposes.

What kind are you?

The life of a political troll

EnronHaliburton2004 EnronHaliburton2004 writes  |  more than 9 years ago

I've had my other ./ account since 1998.

So I started this new account because I wanted to have a relatively anonymous way to express my political opions and to counter the Republican trolls on this board. I'm plenty political with my other account, but I was worried about how it would affect my current job search, being that my ./ account is one of the top items that comes up on Google.

I understand it's not true anonymity. Some day there will be a huge database linking IP addresses and aliases on various websites with every American citizen. I fully expect to be strung up by a roving gang of "Bush Youth" in about 20 years.

It's been a whole week. Yesterday I made it to "Excellent Karma", and now I get the automatic Karma Bonus.

Woot.
