What you mean to say is, GM has a very long track record, while Tesla does not.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Manage Your Passwords?

Garble Snarky Re:There is but one true password manager (445 comments)

You're a fucking idiot. There are other options for password management in Linux. Just because this company chooses not to support it, doesn't mean anything.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Manage Your Passwords?

Garble Snarky Re:Keepass (445 comments)

So, do you put the keyfile in your Dropbox folder, or no? If so, how is that more secure than using a password? Otherwise, do you just manually move it to different devices with a thumb drive or email, or what?

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Manage Your Passwords?

Garble Snarky Re:Air Gapped Box (445 comments)

Some older laptops actually do have easily replaceable wifi modules (just unscrew and pry out), and if not, they still might have removeable antennae. Removing the antennae may not totally disable the wifi though.

The First Open Ranking of the World Wide Web Is Available

Garble Snarky Re:CC? (53 comments)

Maybe because the rank is controlled by links, and many pages link to CC even though people seldom follow those links?

Ask Slashdot: Why Are We Still Writing Text-Based Code?

Garble Snarky Re:Labview (876 comments)

No, that's really not true. It's the slowest development system I've ever used. The software engineers who develop the editor DO NOT UNDERSTAND that the keyboard is faster than the mouse.

Ask Slashdot: Why Are We Still Writing Text-Based Code?

Garble Snarky Re:Labview (876 comments)

I'm stuck on a several-month-long Labview project right now. It's been a terrible experience. I don't know if it's more because of the poorly designed editor, the language itself, or the visual language paradigm. But I'm sure all three of those are part of the problem.

Engineers Invent Acoustic Equivalent of One-Way Glass

Garble Snarky Re:Applications? (114 comments)

Except this device is active, and a concrete wall is passive. Hard to believe the energy costs over, say, 20 years, would not more than make up the difference.

CES 2014: Now You Can Make 360 Degree Videos With a Single Camera (Video)

Garble Snarky The main youtube video doesn't show anything (52 comments)

Why would I want to see video of them using the device? I just want to see SAMPLE VIDEO that comes out of it.

Statistics Key To Success In Run-and-Gun Basketball

Garble Snarky Re:Lets not (97 comments)

I don't know if working as an NCAA basketball coach quite counts as "everyday life", but I agree with you nonetheless.

Data Breach Reveals 100k IEEE.org Members' Plaintext Passwords

Garble Snarky Re:Hashing vs. encryption (160 comments)

Do you understand why Chrome doesn't allow a master password that actually obscures the stored passwords? I can't figure it out. I can't use a browser that doesn't do that. That's the only thing holding me back from Chrome.
