Snowden Publishes "A Manifesto For the Truth"

Greg01851 Re:I thought as a condition... (398 comments)

He had released all the documents he had to Journalists in Hong Kong, before he went to Russia. So what we are seeing now are just being leaked by journalists. "Snowden told The New York Times in an interview published last month that he gave all of the classified documents he had obtained to journalists he met in Hong Kong, before flying to Moscow, and did not keep any copies for himself."

Feinstein and Rogers: No Clemency For Snowden

Greg01851 Re:clemency? (504 comments)

I thought part of his deal with Russia was that he'd not release any more information? What we are hearing now is just what the media is releasing.

CyanogenMod 10.2 M1 Released

Greg01851 Re:Version Numbers (65 comments)

It would make sense for them to match release numbers up with the Android version numbers.

Google: Our Robot Cars Are Better Drivers Than You

Greg01851 Re:Yup, and it doesn't matter. (722 comments)

And you're too ignorant to think that autonomous cars won't be able to recognize signs of wear and tear, and NOT IGNORE them like many humans do, thinking they'll check it out when they have time.

Google: Our Robot Cars Are Better Drivers Than You

Greg01851 Re:Yup, and it doesn't matter. (722 comments)

SOME people like to drive. They like to buy new cars, repair old cars, and do stupid things in fast cars. There, fixed that for ya... Don't assume everyone drives for the same reasons.

Evidently you never got the context. You can't sell something you don't own... that's the point.

Slashdot Asks: How Does the US Gov't Budget Crunch Affect You?

Greg01851 Delaying start of new job. (1144 comments)

I got a very nice job offer 3 weeks ago that involves government security clearances. The shutdown has brought this process to a crawl. I've been out of work for 2+ years, it would be nice to have income again.

Illuminating Window-Less Houses With a Plastic Bottle

Greg01851 Need to diffuse the light a bit... (240 comments)

Great idea and implementation... at least where you have the type of roof where it can be used. One modification I would add would be to add something to the water in order to make it just a bit cloudy... this would diffuse the light a bit more. Of course, depending on the plastic, it may cloud up as it ages in any case, or start with cloudy plastic (i.e. plastic milk bottles).

Greg01851 Simple... Ick factor (655 comments)

Most/all of us in the US are brought up to think insects and similar animals are "icky and gross" No wonder we wouldn't want to eat them.
