Fake Engine Noise Is the Auto Industry's Dirty Little Secret

FatdogHaiku Re:Just give the option to turn it off... (787 comments)

I'm working on an app that changes the text input cursor blink rate if your turn signal is on for more than twenty seconds... helps maintain the illusion of driver attentiveness. I have a couple more features to work out (shoe and bicycle part recognition mostly) and then I'll be calling the app "Oh Crap What Did I Just Hit?" Now if I can just tie into the cars backup cam for a screen grab after crashing sounds...

Interior of Burnt Herculaneum Scroll Read For First Time

FatdogHaiku Re:Primum scribee / first post (66 comments)

The scrolls were found to contain long-winded, mostly irrational arguments regarding the contents of another (unseen) scroll.

They need to set the x-ray phase contrast imaging device to scan at -1 to see hidden scrolls...

Pirate Activist Shows Politicians What Digital Surveillance Looks Like

FatdogHaiku Re:People forget about people. (81 comments)

Rape involves penetration, milking some one against their will (human) would probably constitute sexual assault.

Not sure what vegans have to do with meta data collection though... unless the bugged the cheese! Vote with your wallet, don't buy from pizza joints with bugs in the cheese!

Damn, now you have me wondering what cheese made from human milk would taste like...
If you make cheese made from a (willing) vegan's milk, would it be OK to call it vegan cheese?

Canada's Copyright Notice Fiasco: Why the Government Bears Responsibility

FatdogHaiku Re:In other words ... (73 comments)

While some ascribe malice to the Tories' actions, it's become very clear to me, particularly during the years of the majority government, that while maliciousness may play a part in some of what they do, a good deal of what they do is just simply incompetent.

Study: Birds Slur Their Songs When Drunk, Just Like Humans

FatdogHaiku Re:Heads must roll! (63 comments)

> who pays for a research where they are going to feed birds alcohol?

Exactly! I want names! Who paid for those two thimbles of rum and a half days work from six finches!

You are forgetting the hidden costs! Transporting the birds to Passages Malibu (you can't trust them to fly there after a few drinks), rehab and counseling, getting them to meetings, etc.. If you don't take these steps we will have Sarah McLachlan commercials, singing about "Skid Row Finches"... and no one wants that!

Doppler Radar Used By Police To Determine Home Occupancy

FatdogHaiku Re:Forecast (139 comments)

Put aluminum foil in the microwave, would you want to breath those vapors? (BTW, if you do nuke some foil, don't breath the vapors). As to stainless steel foil, I've bought smaller pieces of it many times, it makes great shim stock. Never needed a roll. Now I'm wondering if you could suspend enough powered metal in paint to do the trick... OR would your paint just melt.

Hacked India Microsoft site stored user data as plain text

FatdogHaiku FatdogHaiku writes  |  more than 2 years ago

FatdogHaiku writes "Microsoft Store India site has been compromised by EvilShadow, a Chinese group yesterday. The hackers defaced the site and linked their blog along with email id.

Microsoft took this situation very seriously and put the site down for now, the hackers placed a picture of the Guy Fawkes mask that is often used by Anonymous hacker group who are known for their high profile hacking activities.

Many sources claim that hackers had access to the database and a list of usernames and passwords have been released. But the shame is that Microsoft saved user accounts password in plain text format.

Today Microsoft has sent email to users, requesting to change their passwords immediately."

Service Pack or Die

FatdogHaiku FatdogHaiku writes  |  more than 4 years ago

FatdogHaiku (978357) writes "Well, it's time to belly up to the service pack bar or kiss your security updates goodbye. Microsoft is telling visitors that support for Windows Vista without any service packs will end on April 13, 2010. Support for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) will end on July 13, 2010. I find it interesting that this message was delivered to a Win 7 box making an XP command line reference inquiry."

New, Improved BSOD

FatdogHaiku (978357) writes "Software firm Prevx says that millions of Windows users may be affected by a "Black Screen of Death" issue that may have multiple causes. A spokesperson for Microsoft has stated that this did "not match any known issues". Same old song with a new color scheme? PCWorld has more details of the scope and nature of the problem."
