So instead of "printing money" they'll just revalue gold.

EU Car Makers Manipulating Fuel Efficiency Figures

FatSean Because Socialism. (431 comments)

When Consumer Reports wants to test a product (including cars), they don't go to the manufacturer, much less let the manufacturer run the testing process! They buy the product anonymously at normal retail, and then test it in their own labs. Why can't regulatory agencies like the EPA and its European Union equivalent do the same thing?

Which is pretty much why.

Iran Running Out of Physical Currency, Satellite Broadcasts Dropped in Europe

FatSean Desperation breeds war. (480 comments)

It is pretty douchy that Israel didn't have to sign the NPT but gets weapons and reactors. These sanctions are just going to make Iran desperate. And for what? Because they might make a few nuclear weapons? North Korea hasn't nuked anyone and they talk all sorts of crazy shit.

Anger With Game Content Lock Spurs Reaction From Studio Head Curt Shilling

FatSean Re:Not on the disc (908 comments)

Why? Presumably the original purchaser would play online indefinitely, so the charge for the game (minus any monthly fees) covers that. Doesn't matter to the network or server which human is using the service.

88-Year-Old Inventor Hassled By the DEA

FatSean Re:Yet Another Terrible Flamebait Slashdot Summary (757 comments)

Some people are rooting for a different team than the one that GG is commonly associated with. These sorts of hard-line mouth-breathers hold "the other teams" to a higher standard than their own.

I mean, we gave Bush 2 shots at the Executive position despite his destruction of two profitable businesses while at the helm.

FatSean Phosphate substitutes (757 comments)

The issue with the phosphate was the effect on plants and other green organisms. Algae and bacteria blooms, that kind of thing. What is so much worse about zeolite A, sodium carbonate, citrates, and sodium silicate?

Debt Reduction Super Committee Fails To Agree

FatSean Dems compromise, Republicans do not. (954 comments)

The Democrats keep offering more and more cuts but get nothing back from the Republicans.

We need both revenue increases and spending cuts.

The Republicans, and the Tea Party radicals specifically, are the problem.

Debt Reduction Super Committee Fails To Agree

FatSean Re:So both and get it done! (954 comments)

From what I read of the reports, the Democrats were willing to cut spending on Medicaid and other programs IF the Republicans agreed to raise taxes for the wealthiest 2%. The shame in this case is clearly the Republicans failing to agree to a compromise. Instead of debating by how much to raise them, they're rejecting the idea outright. THAT my friends, is why I hope to see the day when the Republicans find themselves without any $$ during their campaigns.

I have come to a similar understanding. The Republicans are unwilling to accept any revenue increases while the Democrats are willing to accept cuts. The Republicans refuse to compromise. They are the issue.

On the upside, Obama promises to veto any attempts to avoid the automatic cuts. AND the Bush-Obama tax cuts, the Obama tax cuts and the unemployment extension will all expire at the end of the year. If the GOP won't compromise then nothing gets done and hey look...we've started down the path to solvency. But just a few steps...we'll need to raise more revenue and cut further over time to get back in the black. Which is fine. Steep cuts right now would crush the economy IMO.

RIAA Lawyer Complains DMCA May Need Revamp

FatSean nae tru neutral third party (303 comments)

Let the content owners police their content or go out of business. It's not like we have a shortage of musicians, artists, and filmmakers in our society. I'm not paying to fund a third party to protect their business model.

Censored Religious Debate Video Released After Public Outrage

All arguments derive from the holy book claims, which are simply arbitrary.

Censored Religious Debate Video Released After Public Outrage

FatSean So the angels are dismissed? (717 comments)

Religion is all-in. Who are you to dismiss certain parts of the holy books? IMO if you can dismiss some parts you can dismiss all the claims.

Reccomend a Free/Cheap CAD program for home design

FatSean FatSean writes  |  more than 7 years ago

I recently purchased a home, and have no blueprints for it. I would like to be able to create a model of the house and systems on my computer so that I can easily reference it. I'd like to map out electrical circuits and fixtures, plumbing, doors, walls, etc. Being able to associate appropriate specs to a fixture (e.g. watts consumed, flow rate, etc) would be great.

Is there a cheap/free solution for me? I don't really care about 3D rendering but layers would be nice, and I'm willing to install Linux on a partition if that is what it takes :)

Why can't I see my past posts?

FatSean FatSean writes  |  more than 8 years ago

I like to be able to go back to a previous topic and perhaps continue discusions. I can't seem to find my post list anymore. Is this some ploy to goad subscribers?
