Privacy Lawsuit Against Google Rests On Battery Drain Claims

Ingcuervo Re:Saying it's bad b/c it drains the battery is li (175 comments)

no, i think its more like saying that shooting people is bad because you are getting blood in their clothes and hence they have to pay to get them cleaned..... its bad for the (i hope these terms will not become the center of discussion) "victim", not as your example posts it, that is bad for the "victimary"

You Are What You're Tricked Into Eating

Ingcuervo Re:not only that (499 comments)

Im never said enough or not enough, im just saying that is not common and important, thats why its always well received by the body (you always want them no matter the way they are provided).

I never said vegetarian diet with enough protein is not possible, dont take it personal, i just said that our brains still see protein as a big reward independently of the needs.

I'm not vegetarian because like the flavor of meat, but if you dont... well thats great, if your reasons are different.... also great! i hope you enjoy your food as much as i enjoy mine.

Programming Education Making A Comeback In Primary Schools

Ingcuervo Re:Article Has No Specifics (138 comments)

i truly think that there is no need to learn a programming language in highschool its like teaching how to use maxwell equations in there, basically the ones non interested will learn nothing and will hate it, and the ones interested will feel frustrated because they dont have the foundations for that, i actually think that its more important to teach whats an algorithm, why are those important and how to solve problems. programming languages are completely useless if you are not interested in creating an app by yourself

You Are What You're Tricked Into Eating

Ingcuervo not only that (499 comments)

Yes, basically proteins have bee always of high nutritional value and not that easy to find, hence, accepted anytime its possible to get them, also right now we are used a much slower pace of life (physically speaking), which makes the body save reserves for the "bad days" that it was used to instead of only discard them.

sumary: its too much food to little activity, so to lose weight shut your mouth and walk more (im myself overweighted and have lost gained several pounds back and forth obesity, because my will power doesnt last too much but when i find it, it really works)

Experts Say Hitching a Ride In an Airliner's Wheel Well Is Not a Good Idea

Ingcuervo Re:Wheel-well traveling 101: (239 comments)

1.1 if you take off in a "warmer than freezing" zone, do not get in the plane too long before the trip, or at least make sure you can take off clothes once in there because you might suffocate during the waiting period
2.1. secure all the oxigen to the plane, if you lose it you are screwed
3.1. verify that you have space in there for all the oxygen (assuming that in 2. you managed to sneak it into the well)

Guardian and WaPo Receive Pulitzers For Snowden Coverage

Ingcuervo Re:Good (78 comments)

Thats a pretty good point, nevertheless i still think the leaks (either by facilitating or by making them) are a accomplishment to be worthy of nobel peace price, I totally think the actions are remarkable and the guys should be recognized as ballsy guys for doing it, but i dont think that saying some of the stuff an agency is doing actually is: -----> "The said interest shall be divided into five equal parts, which shall be apportioned as follows: /- - -/ one part to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”" (taken from: --- maybe a ... transparency price???

Mazda Says Its Upcoming Gas-Powered Cars Will Emit Less CO2 Than Electric Cars

Ingcuervo Re:Hydroelectricity! (330 comments)

but most of the times the hydroelectric turbines are the way only PART of the water goes through because the demand of electricity is rarely at the top of the plant capability, hence, most of the times if you plug a lot of electrical devices, you are just using a little more water in the same plant, which might increase the work for the plant but not in a "sensible enough" way to be measured. "At least thats how happens in Colombia where i Live"

3D Printing: Have You Taken the Plunge Yet? Planning To?

Ingcuervo Re:Low profile ones (251 comments)

im guessing the throwing away is never gonna get old!!! either way, i think that in the same way that someone that had experience with old less "IDE targeted" environments can do more optimized code, an analog skill can be developed here, the software helps at reducing time but sometimes the human brain can improve the process.

3D Printing: Have You Taken the Plunge Yet? Planning To?

Ingcuervo Low profile ones (251 comments)

I am not an expert in the field, but because of the prices, i think you are aiming for a "home user" kind, this might work nice and cool for a "HOME USER" :), but i dont think the idea of making money out of it would work if you dont really use a professional tool. either way is good that you get skills that later on you can use if you decide to really go serious

How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?

Ingcuervo old fashioned way (983 comments)

first of all, home user with 20 Tb nowadays is still.... not common so i guess a "standard home user" solution is not gonna be easy to find. I would do the old fashion way with incremental tapes or bluerays, and dividing the information in several clusters in order to handle a different archive for always changing info and old archived data (im sure he doestn access every byte in day to day basis), so the daily backup/sync or whatever is done only in a smaller portion, for instance 2 Tb in a NAS?
