A Common Logic To Seeing Cats and the Cosmos

FatdogHaiku Re: Better known as... (45 comments)

I also think they're underestimating cats. But If they're connecting deep learning systems to telescopes (which is not explicitly stated), when a cat is positively identified, perhaps somewhere millions of light-years away and hundreds of thousands of light-years across, I guess we'll be sorry.

And then all we would need to do to contact extraterrestrial beings is turn our solar system into a giant can opener and broadcast the sound for about ten seconds. This would have the added benefit of allowing our study of the seemingly faster than light response cats tend to exhibit...

Pizza Hut Tests New "Subconscious Menu" That Reads Your Mind

FatdogHaiku Re:Dumb idea (186 comments)

And I'm sure that couldn't possibly be a scam to try to get people to order a few slivers of onion or green pepper at an extra cost of $1.50 each (while taking away some of the pepperoni at the same time).

They may take our pepperoni, but they'll never take our heartburn!

I demand more intelligent trolls! Why does /. only have stupid trolls?

Once they attain a moderate level of intelligence they run for public office and are then too busy to come back and visit us.
Or they might be getting baked and looking at LOLcats...

HYREL 3-D Printers Were Developed by 3-D Printer Users (Video)

FatdogHaiku Re:But but but (55 comments)

...The filament coming from the reel is obviously too curved, but a bigger reel would be less practical (PLA would absorb significant moisture before the reel is used up).

A small incandescent bulb might relax the filament with a touch of radiated heat...
You might need to add a reflector or back reflector depending on the size of the area but I'd start with just a night light blub.

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."

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."
