The People Who Are Branding Vulnerabilities

Hognoxious Re:Vulns? (63 comments)

The only usage I'm aware of is as a verb, and that's only used in heraldry, and even then only when referring to pelicans. Slightly obscure.

ISS's 3-D Printer Creates Its First Object In Space

Hognoxious Re:Next step - Semiconductors (68 comments)

it's that you can't stock Digikey on the space station, but can "print" all of the knobs, buttons, and switches you need when one breaks.

And another, when that one breaks, which it will. Still, no problem - just print another another one...

Might as well take a tub of Play-Doh.

Cameron Accuses Internet Companies Of Giving Terrorists Safe Haven

Hognoxious Re: Yes! (178 comments)

I, however, want privacy, free speech, and other fundamental rights. I recognize that a life without these things is not a life worth living.

Try going without food for a couple of days and spending a couple of winter nights in a shop doorway. You won't be talking so tough then, kid.

Agreed. Knowing the right tool for the task is a fundamental skill, but you also need to know what the second best is.

Interviews: Ask the Hampton Creek Team About the Science and Future of Food

Hognoxious Re:What is it? (143 comments)

Eating an animal living off of marginal grasslands is a much more carbon friendly option for humans than trying to grow anything on such land.

Which is all well and good, but most meat isn't produced like that, at least in countries like the US and UK.

Do you know what a feedlot is?

3D Printing, Bitcoins Old News, Claims Report

Hognoxious Hognoxious writes  |  about a year ago

Hognoxious (631665) writes "Remeber when you couldn't log onto Slashdot without seeing "Bitcoins this, 3D printers that"? Well it's been almost a whole day without a half-assed story or thinly veiled slashvertisement hyping one or the other.

Bennet Haselton's ramblings aside, what do readers think will be the next thing we're all totally sick of hearing about?"

quatsch

Hognoxious Hognoxious writes  |  more than 6 years ago

BTW, the fallacy is actually reverse ad populum. After all, he was arguing that everyone not doing it meant it was better.

It's not that either. He was simply saying that somoene who does it is better than someone who doesn't - a perfectly reasonable argument.

The true reverse ad populum only applies to indie bands and cult movies; the less people have heard of them, the more "alternative" they are.

patent reform

Hognoxious Hognoxious writes  |  more than 7 years ago If it's published it can't be patented. Nowhere, I repeat, NOWHERE in the article does it say that prior art is abolished. Don't be a fucking idiot all your life. That goes for everyone else whose reading and comprehension skills are lacking.

I never really understood the concept behind forcing registration on users. Namely the NYTimes. Granted, I am sure it's for ad revenue, but atleast make it like CNN, MSNBC, etc...

Seconded. These cretinous oafs make you do it every time you visit their sites to download drivers and stuff.

No doubt whoever analyses the data think that the whole world is full of Helen Kellers - an assumption which a quick look around them does nothing to dispel.
