Germany's Glut of Electricity Causing Prices To Plummet

Fuzzums Re:This just illustrates (365 comments)

Germany's Glut of Electricity Causing Prices To Plummet

Fuzzums Re:This just illustrates (365 comments)

Really? "The new plants will run at current prices, but they won't cover their costs"
And you wonder if the prices go DOWN?

Sure they can go down and most definitely some companies go bankrupt but count on it the prices will go up after that...

Fuzzums Re:In other news (358 comments)

Something else like... driving a car?

It is really simple.
If you handle a gun, safety for you and others is your top priority.

ISS-Above Tells You When the International Space Station is Overhead (Video)

Fuzzums That's the spirit (59 comments)

Of course most of us don't need that gadget, but it's cool to see an older nerd like that picking up nerd-skills and making cool nerd stuff.
Instead of saying "that is cute, but Simpsons did it" you can also say like "you must have had a lot of fun making it" and enjoy his enthusiasm :)

Fuzzums The horror! (422 comments)

Too many times a researches made a fancy spread sheet, added some stuff over the years and then wants a decent application that does the same.
Many times the problems they're working on are very interesting, but it's a BIG challenge to rewrite everything to a normal application :)
But of course we like challenges like that :)

Russia Quietly Passes Anti-Blogger Law

Fuzzums NSA (284 comments)

As for all the other countries, the NSA keeps the records of all things mentioned in the article.
If you say something nasty you're labelled a terrorist and you disappear just the same.

Google May Be $1 Billion Behind In Tax Payments To France

Fuzzums Re:So few (199 comments)

"The government redrafted a proposed bill to levy a temporary 75% tax on earnings over 1 million Euros."

Personally I don't see the problem to contribute more to society if you earn that much money.
