User Alleges LG TVs Phone Home With Your Viewing Habits

Flavianoep Re:The real answer is... (286 comments)

don't buy a smart TV.

Since the price difference between a smart TV and a dumb one can be less than $100,00 (here in Brazil where you expend some $700 more to buy a PS4 instead of a PS3), you'd better buy one and root it.

First New Top-Level Domains Added To the Root Zone

Flavianoep Re:"First"? (106 comments)

No, I can't. I've tried. However there are escape codes to type domains in Cyrillic with only Latin letters, e.g. http://xn--d1abbgf6aiiy.xn--p1ai/ (this must be the Russian Federation's president's site, but I can't be completely sure because I can't read Russian.)

First New Top-Level Domains Added To the Root Zone

Flavianoep Re:"First"? (106 comments)

Is the title supposed to read "first non-Latin"?

Actually not. There is a Russian Federation top level domain that does only accept Cyrillic and therefore I can't type on /.

Small-scale biomass energy projects are not a solution to climate change

Flavianoep It's not just about the climate change. (1 comments)

From the original source:

N.H. Ravindranath argued in favor of small-scale bioenergy technologies such as efficient cookstoves and electrifying villages with biogas. These technologies, he wrote, can mitigate climate change, support rural development, reduce soot, and so forth.

If you suppress the "mitigate[ing] climate chage" claim, the remainder is still worth. Moreover, it's very cruel to expect that all those people will stay poor forever.

Billion Year Storage Media

Flavianoep Re:Data (204 comments)

This makes me remember Ovid's banishment. There is a lot of texts talking about the reason for that like it's well know matter, but nobody ever wrote that down, as much as what has been found.

The label apply only when convenient or true. We cannot feel proud of "American research institutes" or "American prowess during Summer Olympics".

Flavianoep Re:News For Nerds (113 comments)

Yes, we have this word 'Americas', but we don't feel the need for using it because we never refer to USA as 'America'.

China Arrests Anti-Corruption Blogger

Flavianoep Re:News For Nerds (113 comments)

No, he's probably Latino-American.
We (I'm a Brazilian) are taught in the school that America is either the name of the continent or of the three Americas considered as a whole. We usually refer to the USA as Estados Unidos and some (not including me) even call its inhabitants "estadounidenses" and insist that "Americans" are the inhabitants of any America.

Middle-Click Paste? Not For Long

Flavianoep Re:Make it an option, PLEASE!!! (729 comments)

I use Mageia (a fork from Mandriva). I remember that some years ago middle click did something other than paste, at least when middle-clicking on the desktop area.
The only Now it creates a note widget (in KDE3, it created a file, instead).
