Why the Trolls Will Always Win

Jahoda Sociopath Ruins Lives, Film at 11 (728 comments)

This isn't about women, or trolling, or "culture". Andrew Auernheimer is a fucking sociopath loser who has no concept of what it means to live in a society of decent human beings. that he thinks he is "fighting the rich" or "part of the struggle" is fucking meaningless. It's just the stuff he tells himself to try to give some meaning to his pathetic, pissant little life where no one gives a fuck about him or who he is.

Air Force To Take Over Two Ex-Shuttle Hangers In Florida For Its X-37B Program

Jahoda Re:WTF? (48 comments)

You're right. Certainly no one reading Slashdot is interested in NASA-related events.

Former Department of Defense Chief Expects "30 Year War"

Jahoda Oink, Oink! (425 comments)

Nothing the the smell of fascist imperialist pig shit in the morning! You can see the dollar signs in their eyes as the drool of authoritarian greed drips from their corpulent jowls.

How President Nixon Saved/Wrecked the American Space Program

Jahoda He did some decent things as president. (125 comments)

Nixon was a "complicated" man, with a "complicated" presidency. I personally think the guy did a lot of rotten shit, although through the course of time, I have come to view him more with pity rather than contempt. He was a deeply unhappy and insecure man with (it seems to me) few, if any, real friends.

Reading this article, I get the sense of his pragmatic realism, especially in light of a country which was at-the-time engaged in a very costly war, and a nation riven with socio-economic strife. (It is a good thing those days are behind us).

Will Windows 10 Finally Address OS Decay?

Jahoda Excuse Me? (577 comments)

If your disk develops bad sectors, the OS most certainly does not "have to work around them". Any modern drive will self correct its own bad sectors upon identifying them. If a disk is developing so many bad sectors that this is a constant problem, then the disk is about to fail, and you should expect performance to be degraded. This has nothing to do with Windows.

Verizon Pays $7.4 Million To Settle FCC Privacy Investigation

Jahoda Re:So nice to see the FCC focusing on the big issu (50 comments)

"I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or are simply an idiot"

. Well, my friend - between the two of us, only one doesn't get sarcasm, and only one calls people "idiot" on the internet. I suppose that's something for you to think about, eh?

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Jahoda Zoe Quinn's Abuse of the DMCA (1134 comments)

Regardless of the he-said/she-said of this whole thing, the part that I think would be of most interest of slashdotter's is Zoe Quinn's use of the DMCA to quash discussion about this situation which she did not like. Regardless of the truth of the matter, the fact that she did this (to me) speaks volumes about her character. Total Biscuit can summarize this better than I can, and also has a very levelheaded take on the situation :

Verizon Pays $7.4 Million To Settle FCC Privacy Investigation

Jahoda So nice to see the FCC focusing on the big issues. (50 comments)

These are the issues that truly threaten consumer freedom in the marketplace. It's the reason why the FCC was even created: to regulate how telecommunications companies use customer data for marketing. And with such a punishment as this, all I can tell you is that it's a warm sunny day to be an American here in the land of fair-play, privacy, and opportunity.

Uber Now Blocked All Over Germany

Jahoda Re:ITT... (312 comments)

You do an excellent job of demonstrating your very-American mastery of arrogant over-generalizations. (What is particularly amusing is that you are German). Like most Americans, I am deeply upset by what has become of our government (perhaps you have some parts of your own history to which you can relate), and corporatism is a disease that the whole world must solve. But that doesn't change the fact that the only single reason you live in such an enlightened, prosperous nation and *IS* the United States of America and its dedication of resources to the security and democracy of your nation. I despise nationalism, but you ought to learn some manners.

Professor Steve Ballmer Will Teach At Two Universities This Year

Jahoda TEACHING???? (179 comments)

How long have I been sleeping? What exactly is there for this man to teach? How to destroy every strategic advantage your company has in 10 years? I mean, I suppose arrogance and ineptitude ARE characteristics of the MBA.

Google's Driverless Cars Capable of Exceeding Speed Limit

Jahoda Re:A limit is a limit (475 comments)

I believe it is fairly certain that one of the first types of vehicles to fully automate will be trucks. The computer will never get tired or frustrated or impatient, and it will never not be aware of where other vehicles are on the road.

Google's Driverless Cars Capable of Exceeding Speed Limit

Jahoda Surprised no one has mentioned revenue generation (475 comments)

I can easily see a future 30 years, potentially even 20 down the road where auto-drive become mandatory on metropolitan freeways at certain times of day (rush hour). In fact, I could easily see a not-too-distant future where such a thing is mandatory, regardless of time-of-day. Now the question I ask is, as with concern with electric vehicles and lower revenues from gasoline tax, how are municipalities going to cope with the reduced revenue from speeding tickets?

News Aggregator Fark Adds Misogyny Ban

Jahoda Re:Fark already defies internet culture. (748 comments)

Yeah, truly witty folks. I left 5 years ago because I don't need to spend my free time reading a website polluted with alts and career trolls that the mods do _nothing_ about, because, hey, ad revenue or manufactured controversy or something.
I met some wonderful people on TotalFark, but I don't read the internet to be pissed off and overall that place is a complete dump of assholery, and I have never looked back. Reddit works just fine.

AMD Launches Radeon R7 Series Solid State Drives With OCZ

Jahoda Garbage In, Garbage Out (64 comments)

I realize that it is entirely anecdotal, but my miserable early experience with OCZ disks seems to match others, to the point that would never in a million years purchase another OCZ product again. Heck, it seems mighty telling that they're not even considered on the tech report longetivity test:

Xbox One Will Play Media from USB Devices, DLNA Servers

Jahoda I read this article differently: (112 comments)

So, am I actually to understand that, in 2014, the Xbox One is not currently capable of playing standard media formats such as MKV and that to this point, a console owner has been unable to play media off a flash drive or DLNA?

Well done, MS. Keep fuckin' that chicken, guys.

AMD Prepares To Ship Gaming SSDs

Jahoda Re:Gaming? (110 comments)

So, because a game published in 2004 loads equally fast on SSD vs HDD, your conclusion is that there is no benefit in all games? Well, ok, so here's my anecdotal experience: with my Samsung 840 Pro vs. my HDD bulk disk in my workstation, the load time difference in Skyrim, Dishonored, Bioshock Infinite is hugely different. I didn't think I would mind moving these off onto the spinning disk for space reasons, and it's enough of a change that I'm getting ready to just buy one big bad SSD and be done with it. (Though I would certainly never buy something as ridiculous as a "gaming ssd").

California Man Sues Sony Because Killzone: Shadowfall Isn't Really 1080p

Jahoda Re:Troll much? (286 comments)

Wow, I guess there's some kind of beautiful irony in you commenting anonymously and calling me "pathetic", bringing up the government and taxation, and then concluding by calling "basic rules of capitalism" a product of primitive cultures and then implying that "people" don't understand what it really means. Good job!
