Brendan Eich Steps Down As Mozilla CEO

Jacek Poplawski RIP Freedom of Speech (1746 comments)

Welcome in the 2014 - the Freedom of Speech is dead.
I use Mozilla since its first days, when Phoenix (later Firefox) was only usable browser on Linux.
I was always trying to support it, now it's just another evil company, just like Microsoft of Apple.

Google and Samsung Sign Global Patent Deal

What about Asus and others? If the deal is against Apple then it should be between everyone not just Samsung and Google.

Is Computer Science Education Racist and Sexist?

Jacek Poplawski stupidity (612 comments)

I just wonder how big the level of stupidity left wing must reach before it will be recognized by the majority of society. Or at least my majority of slashdot readers.

Let's go to the next level. Let's see how many females play first person shooter games. Maybe it's time to ban all these games because they are so sexist.

Or maybe someone should just call bullshit a bullshit.

Jacek Poplawski why oh why (99 comments)

Why people never read the article and instead comment title/description? This article is not about warez and pron but about network theory.

"Dramatic Decline" Warning For Plants and Animals

Jacek Poplawski This is bulls**t (696 comments)

All this stuff is a lie. You believe in "global warming" religion, even if you consider youself as an atheist.

Could you explain after so many years what was the reason to give Nobel Prize for Al Gore? BTW Could you also explain what was the reason to give Nobel Prize for Obama?

Weird Geological Features Spied On Mars

Jacek Poplawski it's just a sandworm (99 comments)

It's a sandworm, there is probably lots of OIL on Mars and they will need to fight sandworms soon.

Noodle Robots Replacing Workers In Chinese Restaurants

Jacek Poplawski Re:And it begins (531 comments)

The idea that 100% employement is not needed and that people can enjoy life and have fun instead working is in fact communism. Communism always look good on posters and in books, but in reality it killed lots of people in many different ways (more than nazism or religions). And it still looks good for newcomers.

If you give all work to robots and let people do nothing, then after some time, some people realize that they need more. More stuff, more space, more resources. The obvious result will war. And war never changes.

Is Bitcoin Mining a Real-World Environmental Problem?

Jacek Poplawski bulls**t (595 comments)

In my humble opinion this article is bulls**t and it should not be on front page of Slashdot. Why should anyone care how much time/energy someone uses on his own computer? Bitcoin bubble bursts, so journalist must create some brain-dead articles about it, but why you post in on Slashdot???

DOS Emulation Arrives For the Raspberry Pi

Jacek Poplawski 386 40Mhz? (189 comments)

My first PC was 386 DX 40Mhz, Duke Nukem required much stronger hardware.
However I think it's a bad idea to use DOS emulation for games like Duke or Doom because they are open source and you can play native builds on Linux.

The Android SDK Is No Longer Free Software

The Android SDK Is No Longer Free Software

Jacek Poplawski users don't care (535 comments)

Users don't care about Free Software at all.
In fact, users don't care about software at all as long at it works.

Few days ago I got idea, that one of the most popular app for android is just trojan/spyware. I did some research. I tried to find more info about creators, only to find out that I am probably right. Then I found thread with same idea (about same software), posted many months ago. I read user replies. They just posted things "if you don't like it don't use it" or "do you have windows? microsoft knows all about you". There wasn't a single explaination about the idea that this software is trojan/spyware. People just don't care. They got something for free, so they use it.

There is only a small group of people who really care, some of them are here, on Slashdot. But this is elite, insignificant group of users.

Kevin Smith announced Clerks III

Jacek Poplawski Jacek Poplawski writes  |  about a year ago

Jacek Poplawski (223457) writes "Kevin Smith just wrote on Facebook:
"THE BEGINNING OF THE END
20 years ago today, we started shooting CLERKS.
20 years later, with no plan or provocation, I jumped out of bed at 4:20 this morning and started writing CLERKS III.
It's been like hanging out with old friends.
And after 2 hours of tapping the keys and giggling, I have come to a conclusion...
CLERKS III will be the best film I'll ever make.""

Shocking and depressing South Park episode

Jacek Poplawski Jacek Poplawski writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Jacek Poplawski (223457) writes "28 pages (at the time of writing this story) of forum speculations — is this the end of South Park as we know it? Very sad ending of last episode, a true drama for each fan.... and a masterpiece. We have to wait until October now... Are we too old to watch cartoons anymore? Are we too old to enjoy this kind of humour? Are Trey and Matt too old to create more episodes?"

Digg dies, just like Slashdot few years ago

Jacek Poplawski Jacek Poplawski writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Jacek Poplawski (223457) writes "I was active Slashdot user few years ago, then it started to be very boring, so I started to use Digg. It was nice until this year, when Kevin Rose decided he is very clever and must change Digg to something between Facebook and Twitter. Site started to be unusable, people stopped using it. Where should we move now? Can Slashdot be interesting again?
