After 40 Years As a Double Amputee, Man Gains Two Bionic Arms

H0p313ss Re:Unfortunately.... (60 comments)

I'm sure that if you had lived without arms for 40 years these would be limitations you'd happily live with.

In fact you would be old enough to appreciate the coolness factor of becoming Steve Austin, heck we all wanted to be Steve Austin in the 70's.

Show me in any article where it says it even has a camera.

It's a fricking radar.

Army To Launch Spy Blimp Over Maryland

H0p313ss Re:Sorry, but how? (174 comments)

How is the army allowed to do this on american soil...?

How do you provide military radar coverage of domestic airspace without putting military radar installations in domestic territory.

If I throw the word NORAD up in the air will it stick to anything in your general vicinity?

(Seriously, are Americans really that clueless?)

Army To Launch Spy Blimp Over Maryland

H0p313ss Re:Army? (174 comments)

Isn't the army supposed to protect us from foreign threats? This seems like a job for domestic law enforcement.

How do you protect yourselves from foreign threats without a radar system?

Someone is confused and I don't think it's me.

I was going to say something similar, but you brought a car analogy to the game so I'm folding.

Is Ruby On Rails Losing Steam?

H0p313ss Re:What killed Ruby (291 comments)

RedMonk has it tied for 6th with C++, PYPL has it at 10th, and TIOBE has it at 14th. It came off from the Rails high, but it remains steadily popular.

That would be a usage of the word popular with which I was previously unfamiliar.

That makes it sound as popular as poking your eyes out with a tree branch.

I think this particular use of "Delicious" means, "Just like Mum used to make".

(Or Dad, in fact Saturday morning bacon was definitely my Dad's thing, and still is.)

Remember Betamax and VHS?

Having the best technology or devices won't necessarily bring you market share.

so lets see what the sales results for Q3 show before declaring WP dead on the basis of the Q2 results.

It was probably just pining for the fjords, the Lumia prefers kipping on it's back. Lovely plumage.

CDC: Ebola Cases Could Reach 1.4 Million In 4 Months

H0p313ss Re:Meanwhile (280 comments)

Plus, every new infection means more chances for Ebola to mutate, possibly into an airborne form.

But then we could start using fuel-air bombs on civilians! Hours of fun for the whole family.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

H0p313ss Re:Christopher Hitchens said it best (937 comments)

If you want to be awe inspired: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXEiKPxCSdA

Sorry, nothing inspiring there, just a rather sad and bitter man using highly selective evidence to attack a straw man.

But at least it shows that Atheists do actively attack religion, despite the many claims to the contrary that have appeared in this discussion.

You must have watched a different video to me, you don't find the Hubble deep field images to be awesome?

I think that if I were delusional enough to believe in a higher power then I would be awe-struck and inspired by the evidence of his great works in those photos. Forget the "world was created in seven days" bit, the observable Universe is an awesome place and if it doesn't strike a cord in your cold-cold heart then I truly feel sorry for you.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

H0p313ss Re: illogical captain (937 comments)

Europe has had 2000 years of that kind of indoctrination. It's a wonder the entire continent isn't a backwards idiot ridden Sodom and Gamorrah.

CDC: Ebola Cases Could Reach 1.4 Million In 4 Months

H0p313ss Re:Meanwhile (280 comments)

Instead of quarantines, we need to treat it at a regular hospital and treat the people with respect.

There's a great idea, let's put a highly infectious virus with a 50% kill rate into a hospital and not quarantine those known to be infected.

That's simply insane.

Yes, the whole situation on the ground is fucked up, but not recognizing that the ONLY way to contain Ebola is by quarantine is going to make things worse not better.

Scotland Votes No To Independence

H0p313ss Re:The over-65's swung it for No (474 comments)

I'm English, but I was pleasantly surprised to find most of the 16-17 year olds giving well reasoned opinions on why they were voting Yes or No.

I spent a good part of last evening listening to BBC Scotland Radio 1, I was very impressed with how civilized and informed everyone was behaving.

But perhaps I'm comparing it with Quebec.

Android port for the Neo FreeRunner in progress

H0p313ss H0p313ss writes  |  about 6 years ago

H0p313ss (811249) writes "Koolu has announced public access to their git repository for their port of Android to the Openmoko Neo FreeRunner smartphone.

Koolu is providing the patches necessary to take Google's Android Platform source code to run on the Openmoko FreeRunner phone, the steps to create a tool chain to build that code, and the instructions on how to build the binary images so more people who have FreeRunners (or want to purchase FreeRunners) can help with finishing the port.

Sean McNeal has been providing test images for a few weeks and there are a couple of YouTube videos demonstrating basic functionality."
