Fwipp Re:400v? (60 comments)

For what it's worth, this is an editorial failure - the linked paper properly cites a factor of "400" - no V anywhere.

Chrome OS Can Now Run Android Apps With No Porting Required

Fwipp Re:Why not all apps at once? (129 comments)

The Evernote app, at least, appears to "solve" this by putting a fixed-size window on the screen. Not resizable, or dockable.

Fwipp Re:So wait... (461 comments)

The next line won't be "Okay, gtfo."

It'll be: "Sir, please step out of the car."

Nope, no misogyny at all in insulting a man by implying he's a woman.

Researcher Fired At NSF After Government Questions Her Role As 1980s Activist

Fwipp Re:why are you volunteering information? (499 comments)

Good thing she didn't lie, then. Neither group she was in was dedicated to the overthrow of the US government.

If they wanted to know if she was in a group that was affiliated with a group that had such goals, they should have asked that.

Researcher Fired At NSF After Government Questions Her Role As 1980s Activist

Fwipp Re:Wrong Title (499 comments)

Doesn't mean that she "belonged to an organization dedicated to the violent overthrow of the US government," which is what they're accusing her of.

What do you think she's guilty of?

$10 Bet Brings Researchers Closer to Industrial Scale Graphene Production

Fwipp Re: what ? (74 comments)

Luckily, my job pays well enough that my savings account + unemployment can cover me for a while, once management finally wakes up and realizes I'm posting on Slashdot at work. :)

$10 Bet Brings Researchers Closer to Industrial Scale Graphene Production

Fwipp Re: what ? (74 comments)

Impostor syndrome - the feeling that everyone else is more qualified than you - is especially common in women in STEM fields. Makes you prone to thinking that your own ideas and innovations can't be right if they contradict established wisdom

Intel Launches Xeon E5 V3 Series Server CPUs With Up To 18 Cores

Fwipp Re:What happened to the core-wars? (105 comments)

Most people don't even make use of 4 cores on their desktop, so it doesn't make sense for them to push 16-core consumer chips. If you want to do server-like highly-parallel tasks, maybe you should buy a server CPU.

Book Review: Architecting the Cloud

Fwipp Either (75 comments)

"Most books about cloud computing are either extremely high-level quasi-marketing tomes about the myriad benefits of the cloud without any understanding of how to practically implement the technology under discussion. "

Or....?

You didn't even get your first sentence right, I'm not going to read about the rest of your thoughts.

Call me naive, but I had no idea that the increasingly weird, anti-government, pro-corporate rhetoric on this site was coming from the top.

Maybe I'll need to reconsider my visits here.
