How To Behave At a Software Company?

Eric52902 Re:Good hygiene, don't be a know it all. (842 comments)

Won't this just leave me with a broken spirit gaming the system while working for a know-nothing boss who makes ridiculous requests and sets impossible deadlines in a dead-end job?

How To Build Roads To Control How Fast You Drive

Eric52902 Re:Bullshit! (801 comments)

If you're not passing, you shouldn't be in the left lane, period. I don't care if you're doing 50 or 80 MPH, the left lane is for passing! It's people like you that fuck up good traffic flow.

Court Says Parents Can Block PA "Sexting" Prosecutions

Eric52902 Re:Insanity (383 comments)

No kidding. If a girl doesn't want to have sex, she shouldn't have sex. If a guy forces himself on her, that's rape. If she does it even though she doesn't want to, she's weak willed and the guy might be an asshole, but that does not constitute a crime.

Court Says Parents Can Block PA "Sexting" Prosecutions

Eric52902 Re:Insanity (383 comments)

But that's hard! I should be able to let the TV and video games raise my kids and use the courts to fill the gaps with ridiculous litigation!

Federal Agents Quietly Using Social Media

Eric52902 Re:"Private" Information? (171 comments)

This is not hacking any more than someone walking up to you on the street, asking you for your keys, then taking your car for a joyride is theft. Sure, you may not want the person driving your car, but then, why did you give them your keys? It's the same concept here, your public information is just that and anything else, you need to give the person permission to see. If said person ends up being a government agent and you get nailed, maybe you should have taken the friend request under more careful consideration.

Google's Experimental Fiber Network

Eric52902 Re:more competition (363 comments)

Or, for those of us who've run out of tinfoil, maybe it just happens that they haven't hammered out the details. That seems far less likely than the marketspeak angle though, huh?

Firefox To Get Multi-Process Browsing

Eric52902 Re:Will this benefit the average user? (383 comments)

The machine I'm currently on is a single core machine running XP (1.6 GHz if I'm not mistaken...so lazy I don't even want to pull up the specs!). I've been using Chrome for months on this thing and it's lightning fast. Your concern over speed is unfounded.

On Realism and Virtual Murder

Eric52902 Re:It's just evolutionary. (473 comments)

Come on people, who can feel true emotional backlash from "killing" something that isn't even alive? I'm a fairly hardcore gamer and I can say that I've almost never felt any remorse for any of the brutal things I've done in video games. Is this because I'm a psychopath? Of course not, I just have a tough time empathizing with a bunch of zeros and ones. That's what it all comes down to, these "people" will never come close to being real because they cease to exist when I turn the power off. The only time I've ever felt empathy for a character is when the developers have done a particularly good job characterizing them and when this does happen, it's exactly as if I were empathizing with a movie or TV character. Games are just for amusement, they aren't reality simulators. Everyone needs to get a little perspective and realize this fact.
