Tiny $45 Cubic Mini-PC Supports Android and Linux

IVI4573R Re:How much RAM? (197 comments)

Power calculations is exactly why my latest home-built router uses an low-power mother board with an Atom CPU rather than something more power hungry. Not as efficient as some other options like this SOC, but it's still x86 so I had more options on Linux distros. In the end it was personal preference, tho.

Video Game Industry Starting To Feel Heat On Gun Massacres

IVI4573R Re:The work of a video gamer? (1006 comments)

Driving a car is not protected by the Bill of Rights. I have no problem with requiring drivers licenses and registration on cars, but if an amendment to the Bill of Rights said I have an unalienable right to drive a car then those regulations would be limiting my rights and would be unconstitutional. The Bill of Rights trumps all other laws and regulations, period.

LEGO Announces GNU/LInux-Powered Mindstorms EV3 Platform

IVI4573R Re:Linux, not necessarily GNU/Linux (164 comments)

What he said. They sue people distributing their code without source. For instance, Linksys routers. If it wasn't for them standing up for their copyright and the GPL we wouldn't have all the nice alternate firmwares like DD-WRT, Tomato, etc. I've never hear of Busybox ever suing an end user.

Gmail Drops Support for Connecting To Pop3 Servers With Self -Signed Certs

IVI4573R Re:Google should then provide signed certs (299 comments)

Yes. My dovecot server is configured with a Class 1 from STARTSSL and Gmail is happy with it. You just have to remember to use the "Server Certificate Bundle with CRLs" provided by STARTSSL in the ssl_ca option so that the chain to CA is complete.

Torchlight had a Linux version in the last Humble Indie Bundle. Not sure if you can get the Linux installer for it elsewhere, though.

Ask Slashdot: Best Cell Phone Carrier In the US?

IVI4573R Re:There isn't one. (375 comments)

Well with politicians there is always at least the option of a write in, so you can really pick who is best for the job. He/She may not win, but that's not the point.

They are all terrible in one way or another. In the end it's going to be who sucks the least.
