Flammon Re:Apple Integer BASIC Chess (202 comments)

Here I am, chilling at Starbucks, listening to some jazzy music and all of sudden I see this abomination of code. Thanks for ruining my morning.

Tao3D: a New Open-Source Programming Language For Real-Time 3D Animations

Flammon Unity + (JavaScript | Boo | C#) (158 comments)

I wonder if the Unity + (JavaScript | Boo | C#) combination would produce better results and in less time. The nice thing about using Unity is that you will eventually be able to run the apps in a browser without a plugin. http://arstechnica.com/gadgets...

The $1,200 DIY Gunsmithing Machine

Flammon Re:Honestly, rifles are not the problem (651 comments)

Yes, yes and yes! Once I realized that "anti-gun" meant no guns for the good guys and guns for the bad guys, I became pro-gun. The debate isn't about less guns for bad guys, they already have guns and always will. It's about letting the good guys can have guns.

KDE's UI To Bend Toward Simplicity

Flammon Re:Repeat history (184 comments)

Big corp. Takes them a while to copy features from competitors. I haven't run Windows in years but after seeing this demo, the UI at least would work well with my workflow. I wouldn't consider switching yet because there's much more to an OS that the UI but it is a significant factor.

Industry-Based ToDo Alliance Wants To Guide FOSS Development

Flammon Coercion Free (54 comments)

The only way to direct a FOSS project is to contribute to it, whether it's time or money. It cannot be directed by force. It is an anarchy. There are no rulers to force anyone to do anything. If we could just get our governments to work the same way, we'd all be better off.

Not so quick. CSS can be found outside the web now. GTK and QT for example.

Russian Government Edits Wikipedia On Flight MH17

Flammon Re:I don't see the problem. (667 comments)

Not that a Ukrainian error of identification would have been any more or less tragic, although it's less plausible since the separatists are not operating any air assets that I'm aware of so the Ukrainians are much more likely to be very conservative with regard to their anti-air grid.

Yes, but...

Malaysian Airlines MH17 plane was travelling almost the same route as Russia’s President Vladimir Putin’s jet shortly before the crash that killed 298, Interfax news agency reports citing sources.

And the planes look almost identical. Have a look. http://rt.com/news/173672-mala...

There seems to be an unusual amount anti alternative media sentiments here lately. Maybe the NSA is manipulating the moderation system. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-...

Russia Moves From Summer Time To Standard Time

Flammon It's a distraction! (158 comments)

The mainstream media is distracting you from what's really going on is Russia.

Anyhow, before condemning their new laws, have a look that what the FCC says.

Obscene Broadcasts Are Prohibited at All Times

Obscene material is not protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution and cannot be broadcast at any time. The Supreme Court has established that, to be obscene, material must meet a three-pronged test:

  • An average person, applying contemporary community standards, must find that the material, as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest;
  • The material must depict or describe, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by applicable law; and
  • The material, taken as a whole, must lack serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.

The New 501(c)(3) and the Future of Open Source In the US

If you're not agreeing with them, but just rolling over, then you deserve what you get.

Will you be paying their legal bill? No? Then STFU.

One Developer's Experience With Real Life Bitrot Under HFS+

Flammon Re:Btrfs (396 comments)

There are varying degrees of stability and I felt that after 7 years of development, official inclusion into the Linux kernel, Facebook deployment and the default fs on OpenSUSE that it's good enough for my laptop, workstation and a few other systems. Having that said, I've not migrated by backup drives yet, they're still on XFS. It may be a while until I migrate those. http://www.phoronix.com/scan.p...

Seattle Approves $15 Per Hour Minimum Wage

Flammon Re:Even higher! (1040 comments)

I was going to mod you up but it seems pointless. When it comes to economics, the crowd here is so out of touch that anyone who brings up a reasonable argument gets burried. The illusion that we can get stuff for free has bamboozled the vast majority of people but the rude awakening is near and anyone who's paying attention knows it. You'll need hard assets to ride the next imminent downturn.
