Sega To Bring Dreamcast Titles to PSN, Xbox Live
Great, now I can play Crazy Taxi! Oh wait, they already ported that to PS2 ages ago. You mean Dreamcast had other games???
Firefox Is Lagging Behind, Its Co-Founder Says
I'd been using Chrome for a few months, and while I enjoyed it at first I soon realized that it was a memory hog when using dozens of multiple tabs and *consistently* choked to death on Flash content. I've been very happy I switched back, just from using it again today. As long as Chrome suffers these critical flaws and Firefox outperforms it, I will be sticking with Team Mozilla.
You handle my ass pennies, every day. You ALL handle my ass pennies! THAT'S what gives me the upper hand!
Larry Sanger Tells FBI Wikipedia Distributes "Child Pornography"
So, let me get this straight... because you don't personally enjoy something (such as asparagus or lolicon), you would vote to make it illegal (criminalize it)? BECAUSE you don't care one way or the other??? That sounds pretty screwed up to me.
An Animal That Lives Without Oxygen
Funny, I was thinking about Futurama as well, but the Popplers episode instead.
How Smart Are You?
An excerpt from the Good Book:
Most people totally misunderstand the term "SubGenius." Look at the
word. What does it mean?
It means NOTHING! It's utterly ambiguous. All-purpose. It sure as hell
doesn't mean "just below genius level." To "Bob" and his mighty friends
in The Council of None, one happy idiot is worth far more than ten A-Bomb
inventing geniuses. We throw most so-called "geniuses" OUT. They're too
nervous, they take themselves too seriously, they're Snide. They do not
truly 'know' Slack.
Praise "Bob," there are as many idiot SubGenii as "smart" ones. Most
prevalent, however, are smart-asses. It isn't brains, but an intuitive,
anti-Pink, anti-cute Attitude Mutation. The Conspiracy has proved that you
can have "high intelligence" but still not be able to Think.
Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter, Protein ... and Now Fat
Aw man... and here I've been trying to convince people that Chipotle is the new Umami!
Passive-Aggressive Wi-Fi Hotspots
A friend of mine who lives in an apartment complex named his network "Bring apartment 6A a sandwich, no mayo". Nobody's delivered one to him yet.
The Journal of Serendipitous and Unexpected Results
Sometimes the noise is the result of too many signals at once; if you can't decipher the meaningful data from the meaningless, the transmission will often be ignored completely. Seeing that other people have already done what you have done helps you to determine the overall accuracy of your experiment in terms of relative experiences, and may even spark people to do *only* things that have not yet been tried yet. It's just a matter of collecting and sharing all of the "negative" data that has and will be published.
IPv4 Free Pool Drops Below 10%, 126.96.36.199/8 Allocated
Like most people, I'm waiting until my ISP switches to IPv6. Until they change my IP address, then I have no reason to change my internal IP addresses. I mean really, what's the point? Most of us have no control over whether IPv6 is implemented anyway.
In total, I've downloaded X Linux ISOs, where X= ...
I agree! My favorite LiveCD is *also* "Damn Small Linux Trinity Rescue Disk Change NT Password (CHNTPW) ClamAV LiveCD SysRescue CD (or something close to that) GPartED". Seems to me like they should shorten the name, though. Or perhaps divide it into separate distros using commas.
Why a Hard Disk Is a Better Bargain Than an SSD
That is absolutely true. I'm thinking of switching to SSDs in the future (once they come down in price a bit) mainly because over the years I have lost at LEAST 1TB of data due to hard drives failing. Most of the time, I have no idea why they don't work anymore... did a head hit a platter? Is an arm broken? Are the discs not spinning? Most of us are not technically adept enough to repair a broken hard drive, and data recovery services are damn expensive, so if we're just talking about personal files and downloaded media, it's likely lost FOREVER. Just a couple weeks ago I had a 500GB external drive fail, and it was nearly full to capacity and was working as a backup for another computer that now has a fried mobo. So... all of the pictures I spent time scanning, all of the CDs I burned, everything I meticulously cataloged... gone forever.
THIS is why SSDs will become the preference of the future.
Human Laughter Up To 16 Million Years Old
That's a really good point... if tickling is a reflex that makes us "laugh" although it's clearly unpleasant (does anybody *actually* like to be tickled, other than masochists???), maybe tickling orangutans isn't the best way to research laughter. What we need to do is research their reaction to HUMOR.
Obviously there aren't any orangutan joke writers (other than Jeff Foxworthy, I suppose), but if comedy stems from the tragedy of others, maybe we should find out if orangutans still "laugh" when they see another orangutan fall from a branch or something similar that humans universally find humorous.
Tetris Turns 25
Wait... they made ARCADE versions of Tetris?
A Real-World Test of the Verizon MiFi
Obviously, you're losing touch with popular culture. "Irony" applies to anything that is NOT ironic. See: Alanis Morisette.
Just like the word "literally" has come to mean "figuratively".
It's a world gone mad, I tell you!
The Perils of Pop Philosophy
Y'know, like... I didn't read the whole article or nothin' but, like... I gotta say that my best philosophical arguments happen while smoking hash, man. So, like... I don't know what this guy's got against hash, be it "one-way" or another but like... oh wait. I forgot what I was saying. Oh well... now where the hell did I put the Doritos?
How To Help a Friend With an MMO Addiction?
Dude, it's worse than you think. There are many (HOT!) chicks who have expressed disinterest in guys who play MMORPGs in general because their ex was so into gaming that HE WOULD REJECT SEX in favor of playing a game!
Now, I can go for days playing games if I'm really trying to beat something, but MMORPGS are dangerous because they have no "end". Once a guy is so consumed in playing his game that he can reject a naked woman gyrating on his lap (LITERALLY), what else could possibly motivate or persuade him from changing? Fear of pain or death is about it, right?
Sci-Fi Writers Dream Up Ideas For US Government
Other than the obvious mint flavor, it would be comprised mostly of feces.
Danger Mouse Releases Blank CD-R To Spite EMI
Thanks to this post, this torrent downloaded in less than a minute!
Man Arrested For Taking Photo of Open ATM
No, but we're talking about common decency. Sure, he doesn't HAVE to talk to someone, but seeing as they have guns and bulletproof vests, I'd be willing to make sure I'm in their favor by simply being a polite person.
A better response would have been, "Sure, no problem." Speak with them when you're done with your business, make sure there's no problems (e-mail yourself the photo if you can) and delete it if they ask. Not a huge deal.
Remember, it's always easier to be reasonable with people with guns than to be a smart-ass.
