Omand Warns of "Ethically Worse" Spying If Unbreakable Encryption Is Allowed

Grog6 That's why people wear vests, twit. (390 comments)

Headshots take that right out.

Jed and Jethro practiced ricochet shooting in the 60's; using a Barett 50cal makes it a bit harder, but what else do we have to do all day? :)

Omand Warns of "Ethically Worse" Spying If Unbreakable Encryption Is Allowed

Grog6 They better be damn sure we're not home... (390 comments)

Most of us practice head shots for hours at a time.

People in the South tend to have guns within reach at all times; what could possibly go wrong? :)

User Plea Means EISA Support Not Removed From Linux

Grog6 Re:Crusty Hardware (189 comments)

Yes, it was primarily for high bandwidth communications; SCSI, Fiber, etc.

DataAq was secondary, but the cards I have have a 50pS jitter spec, and it holds across four cards in one box; try buying that for less than $20k today.

The best cards I see these days won't hold that jitter spec; only systems.

User Plea Means EISA Support Not Removed From Linux

Grog6 Re:Crusty Hardware (189 comments)

With a "good" (lol) mobo, I was able to run my VLB board at 50MHz, with certain combinations of cards and memory.

I ran a 486-DX4-100 for a couple of years with that mobo, a SCSI card, an Orchid Fahrenheit video card, with a 2x multiplier and a 50MHz fsb.

I still have this somewhere, lol.

It got replaced with a TX430 mobo, lol.

Grog6 Science Fiction as Fact... (66 comments)

There was a James P. Hogan story that involved reading a 50,000 year old book with such a scanner.

1978 or so, I think...

Steam Broadcasting Now Open To Everyone

Grog6 Buy your kids a chemistry set... (93 comments)

I got my first one when I was 5, my really nice one when I was 8.

Amazingly enough, electronics were more fun than explosives; hooda thunkit?

Your kids will do better if you're only there for the bigger problems; hovering is not good.

Silk Road Trial Defense: Mt. Gox CEO Was the Real Dread Pirate Roberts

Grog6 Re:Karpeles: "I'm not the real Dread Pirate Robert (119 comments)

The drag is that there probably is a more Evil character involved than DPR, much like the movie.

I predict there will be R.O.U.S. springing from the woodwork everywhere soon as well. :)

There is a lot of Parallel Construction at work as well.

FBI Confirms Open Investigation Into Gamergate

Grog6 Inside MY Gaming community... (556 comments)

No one cares either.

Some Media Whores got some attention. BFD.

The game we play didn't come out this year, in some cases, this millennium.

I guess someone, somewhere, cares about these "Journalists" enough to send death threats; I can't possibly see why.

New games are horribly crippled compared to the past; It would be nice to see a new shooter without micropayments, and including a level editor.

FISA Court Extends Section 215 Bulk Surveillance For 90 Days

Grog6 You Can't Vote Out the Gestapo. (83 comments)

As long as they can OK this for themselves, in Secret Courts, We, the People are Seriously Fucked.

I saw a major article today about how all the successful Supreme Court Cases are handled by an inner circle of DC Lawyers, who are personal friends of some of the Justices.

It's All Insiders at this point in the government in the parts that matter; the rest are Country Hicks that will do whatever the Fuck they're told. Yes, I mean Congress.

We are headed down a dark road my friends.

It's already Ugly, why do you think so much was left out of the CIA Torture Report, and they're Still Worried it will lead to uprisings?!
Note: they haven't said where they expect those to occur... :)

Godwin is no longer a conversation ender, since the Snowden revelations.

Ron Wyden Introduces Bill To Ban FBI 'Backdoors' In Tech Products

Grog6 How long until he gets a phone call... (109 comments)

"You know, that's a nice life you have; drop the bill and none of your illegal activities come out."

All congresscritters are criminals, so this won't take long to kill. :(

You can't vote out the Gestapo.
