Former GM Product Czar: Tesla a "Fringe Brand"

Gothmolly Re:How does the quote go...? (222 comments)

+1

For me its time for a car upgrade, and I'm strongly considering a Tesla. No more oil changes, ever.

Ask Slashdot: Multimedia-Based Wiki For Learning and Business Procedures?

Gothmolly Square peg, round hole (93 comments)

Wikis work if people constantly modify and tune them, and provide content. They don't complete themselves. It sounds like you need trainers, rather than throwing nontechnical people at what is essentially a technical solution.

When did you already tell your boss you'd have this done by?

Utilities Should Worry; Rooftop Solar Could Soon Cut Their Profit

Gothmolly Re:Utilities Fighting Back (463 comments)

Hello, you seem to think that Slashdot is a discussion forum, when instead it's just a place for insecure neckbeards to troll, post memes, complain about CmdrTaco, and mention how BSD is dying. If you want actual discussion, find the site on the Internet that's most diametrically opposed to Slashdot, and try there.

This is a joke, right? Or is this the year of the Linux desktop?

NSF Awards $10 Million To Protect America's Processors

Gothmolly How is this a Federal problem? (48 comments)

Why do we need the State Science Institute telling us that we need better control over the processor supply chain? Companies for whom this is important will implement it, and the rest won't. It's a self-correcting problem. And 10 million? If you're going to go out and nationalize the production of processors that's chump change, do it right, at least.

Outlining Thin Linux

Gothmolly So why systemd? (221 comments)

If you dont have hotplug hardware with its udev nonsense, and you don't have a GUI, and your users don't log in interactively to the OS, why do you need systemd and all its crap? init + an rc script to launch $YOUR_APP and you're done.

Trouble In Branson-Land, As Would-Be Space Tourists Get Antsy Over Delays

Gothmolly Elon Musk trolling (77 comments)

Of course Memedot has to trash Branson, a businessman, over Musk, a trendy-named dotcom guy with a penchant for electric cars.

Fork of Systemd Leads To Lightweight Uselessd

Gothmolly Ah, Moronix (468 comments)

The bastard child of a trashy hardware site (i.e. not Anandtech, maybe TH or one of the other lamer ones) and OSNews. Did they round out the article with meaningless, unlabelled graphs?

Why a Chinese Company Is the Biggest IPO Ever In the US

Gothmolly Just what we need, more chinese crap (191 comments)

Hooray, getting more plastic knockoff versions of things, produced by slaves (hint: Communism doesn't treat people kindly), with zero regard for the environment, and shipped halfway across the planet.

Obama Presses Leaders To Speed Ebola Response

Gothmolly 3000 carriers (221 comments)

When those 3000 dudes come home, and go back through the major US airports, back to their families distributed across the country, and THEN spread the disease, it's going to be awesome.

Never wasting a good crisis, the President and administration will use this as an opportunity for massive federalization of health care and private sectore business.

Torvalds: No Opinion On Systemd

Gothmolly Only adds complexity (385 comments)

As a RHEL server admin, the only thing I see systemd adding is complexity. Do a fresh install and compare it to RHEL5 or 6, and you have way more stuff running, new start/stop methods for init scripts, weird NTP replacements, and a bunch of stuff that you don't need. Then you go and install your app, or something like Postfix (because you're building a mail server). Why do you need parallel boot? udev hotpluggery? a "logind" process?

Ask Slashdot: What To Do After Digitizing VHS Tapes?

Gothmolly This is why digital sucks (268 comments)

Stone tablets from Babylon are still readable because analog degrades gracefully.

Want real long-term storage? Write them to analog tape again.

Gothmolly (148874) writes "Love them or hate them, the GNAA (no link) are as much a part of the Internet as AYBABTU, or the Ha Ha Guy, or Natale Portman. Recently, Wikipedia deleted the entry for the GNAA, the stub page can be found here. Note that AYBABTU and the Ha Ha Guy both have articles, and are similar in scope (Internet memes). Since Wikipedia's Chinese site is different, and article subjects frequently clean up their own articles, is this just another internal-cleanup job by Wikipedia, or is Wikipedia trying to account for taste?"
