The A-10 Thunderbolt II is being retired very soon I believe.

Brendan Eich Steps Down As Mozilla CEO

Guy From V Litmus Test (1746 comments)

The fact that he chose to step down should be the biggest indicator to the employees that they should persuade him to stay.

Malaysian Flight Disappearance 'Deliberate'

Guy From V Re:does it add up? (436 comments)

Getting the craft into the air to any destination whatsoever that seems out of the ordinary would be the single most difficult part of this theoretical heist to pull off, so the people on board would be a contingency to have to deal with just to be able to get the plane.

Hard Drive Reliability Study Flawed?

Guy From V Seagates Are So Bad... (237 comments)

A while ago I bought three of their HDDs...and somehow within a month seven of them failed. Not only that, a friend of mine tried to top off a rack of Seagate hybrid SSDs with unleaded and the whole server just burst into flames on the spot.

Federal Judge Rules Chicago's Ban On Licensed Gun Dealers Unconstitutional

Guy From V Re:guns up/crime down in Chicago (934 comments)

Actually, the CDC did resume their gun violence study in the middle of last year (2013) at the behest of the President. The results were not what he wanted to see so the Fifth Angel did not trumpet the arrival of the abyss and the darkness, locusts, smoke from the furnace of Hell etc he was hoping for got the hook and exited stage left.

How One Man Fought His ISP's Bad Behavior and Won

Guy From V DNSJumper (181 comments)

Do a search for "DNSjumper". It's a great little tool that lets one well...uh...jump around various DNS servers and arrange them in any order you want, ping them much easier and more often and makes it comfortable to change one or all if you feel your current list isn't to your liking. (I'm not sure of the author's or company's official website, so I don't want to push one source over another).

4 Tips For Your New Laptop

Guy From V Isolate the OS Partition (310 comments)

Install or isolate your OS on a separate partition from everything else...so that you can keep "Your computer's guts and what makes it go" and "The rest of your stuff that doesn't need your computer working right if it suddenly wigs out." away from each other. Which is just how I put it to my parents and relatives so they can hopefully minimize the clusterfuck that I'll eventually have to sift through and try to salvage somehow when something screws up and they call me.

Archive.org Hosts Massive Collection of MAME ROMs

Guy From V LoadScout (193 comments)

This little freeware program allows you to not only see what's in an archive shortly after you begin to D/L it, you can prioritize individual files inside it or pick and choose any number of them to D/L or not. Also to get bits and pieces of the archive in truncated form, still retaining the format container. I haven't used it but maybe 3 times, but these situations are perfect for it: this huge-ass, inconvenient HTTP grab of over 40 damn gigs. There's a portable version available somewhere but I can't locate it ATM.

Lockheed Martin Developing Successor To the SR-71 Blackbird

Guy From V Blah, blah, SR-71... (160 comments)

I'm sick of the Blackbird, I think the military should start up the shelved RAH-66 Comanche (with its it's XM301 cannon) project again. I'm sure we have enough fast, invisible spyplanes to choose from from what I can surmise from the information and disinformation they let be reported.

Scientists Induce New Hair Growth In Balding Men

Guy From V Excuse me but STFU (232 comments)

Where the hell did all the hostility come from in this thread? I'm sure going bald and being bald affects people in vastly different ways, just as it affects other people's reaction and interaction with them. This could possibly be a great discovery for something that negatively impacts a great deal of people, mostly guys...but a few women as well. Alternatively, a great deal of people, both those affected and those interacting with those affected, could give a shit less...which is great. That doesn't mean this wouldn't be almost a damn miracle to some guys or gals; it also would be a fantastic achievement in and of itself that probably would be a starting point for other achievements. And, as was blatantly said before, this would generate veritable mountains of cash for some industries, when is that not reason enough for something to strive for...usually that's the only damn reason. So, everyone with all the "advice" to the people who think that this would be great for them and about how they should "get over it" and man up or whatever shit they're peddling about how much action they get: Fuck off and shut up. I'm not bald (yet) but I can tell you if my head looks as bad as I think it would without hair I'd probably be all over this like Persis Khambatta on Voyager 6. Or something.

Charles Carreon Finally Surrenders In Epic Legal Battle With The Oatmeal

Guy From V Guy From V writes  |  about 7 months ago

Guy From V (1453391) writes "Charles Carreon, zany lawyer and poster-child for the Streisand Effect (sorry Babs) for his lawsuit against The Oatmeal creator Mattew Innman last year in his original role as legal counsel for Funnyjunk, as reported by ArsTechnica, seems to have finally called it quits. In other news, the River Styx has reportedly dropped below 32 degrees Fahrenheit."
