Actually I was alluding to common practices going back many centuries, so well done on leaping to conclusions.

We're not spying on you. Not at all. Only spying on select traffic in the interest of national security. Don't worry.

FEMA Grounds Private Drones That Were Helping To Map Boulder Floods

Eyeball97 Re:Not autonomous? (356 comments)

Sure. What's your noun to define, in general, a remote controlled unmanned vehicle?

We'll start a campaign to have your word replace "drone" in the Oxford English, Merriam Webster, Collins dictionaries immediately.

EU Proposes To Fit Cars With Speed Limiters

Eyeball97 Here's an idea, EU (732 comments)

How about we just wrap everybody in cotton wool and outlaw leaving the house, ever

Because outrageously stupid ideas like these make much more sense than making the fucking driving test harder so that morons don't get to drive

"Oh, but we have to have the bi to specify it's BINARY Terabytes you see!"

No, you don't, you foul smelling infected festering gonad. ONLY YOU insignificant fucking worms get confused as to whether kilo is 1,000 or 1,024 depending on context.

Electronics-Loving 'Crazy Ants' Invading Southern US

Eyeball97 Re:Air-Condition Compressors (250 comments)

Kinda pisses people off that nothing is actually broken but the service bill is tendered, just the same

I'm not quite sure what you're getting at here. They're pissed off because something's NOT broken? Or they're pissed off because they have to pay for somebody's time? Either way they don't sound like very rational people.

Credit Card Swipe Fees Begin Sunday In USA

Eyeball97 Re:What's the cost for Cash? (732 comments)

This whole "cost for cash" argument is somewhat silly. Doesn't the same "problem" apply to the banks? Surely by this logic, an electronic transaction should be cheaper than a cash transaction. Why, then, do the banks charge this exhorbitant "transaction fee"?

As a (former) small business owner, I had a gross revenue of around $600k p.a. and a net profit of around $100k p.a.

The bank wanted 2.4%. Let's assume I switched to 100% cashless - that's $15k in fees - 15% of my net profit.

Pisses me off immensely when people trivialise the cost of accepting plastic.

My gut feeling is this man decided to do a bit of publicity whoring, and the watch & boots were made deliberately to get himself picked up

Ah, roast scapegoat...

Linus Torvalds Advocates For 2560x1600 Standard Laptop Displays

Eyeball97 Re:2560x1600 should be good for anyone! (661 comments)

Can you smell the irony, of posting this "bring back 4:3" crap on a site whose layout takes full advantage of widescreen.

And a 16:9 (or even better, 16:10) widescreen monitor in landscape mode shows TWO clean, full-sized sheets of A4 side by side (or one A3), jackass.

4:3 needs to die. Deserves to die. Is a dinosaur, aesthetically.

Kaspersky's Exploit-Proof OS Leaves Security Experts Skeptical

Eyeball97 Special kind of stupid (196 comments)

To claim that anything is exploit proof requires a level of arrogance and/or stupidity I hadn't thought possible outside of government.
