The Far Future of Our Solar System

Joehonkie Re: Take this with a grain of salt (122 comments)

That link doesn't say any of the things you think it says. It's talking about stars in their relative orbits to each other. No party of your quote mentions the contents of the solar system.

NSA Intercepted French Telephone Calls "On a Massive Scale"

Joehonkie Re:Muslims (330 comments)

America is 75% christian, and given how feral and out-of-countrol some of the groups are, I'd say they're fair game.

Apparently the NSA agreed with you.

Joehonkie Re:FRAND (278 comments)

And I'm sure at the time they didn't realize that there would be a global patent war, either.

Jury Finds Google Guilty of Standards-Essential Patents Abuse Against MS

Joehonkie FRAND (278 comments)

The moral of the story is to never license your patents as FRAND. Or, you know, fix the patent system.

Snowden and the Fate of the Internet As a Global Network

Joehonkie Re:Is there anything useful on the non-Western 'Ne (505 comments)

Good god, how did this get modded up? The way to deal with a globalization and the myriad cultures on this planet is to stick you fingers in your ears and avoid anything that doesn't interest you directly? How many expats, or 3rd or even 4th generation folks do want access to that? How many "academics," which apaprently to you means "anyone with an interest in a culture I don't care about?" Probably more than you think.

Goodbye, Lotus 1-2-3

Joehonkie Re:How about cutting Notes? (276 comments)

I'd take Outlook in a second over Notes.

I'd take PINE over either. And I don't even like PINE.

Open Sauce Foundation Created

Joehonkie Re:WTF - Weird and confusing (95 comments)

It's ROT13 so there's any number of websites that will instantly "decrypt" it for you, but really, it's a gag article that's not worth the effort.

Blizzard Announces Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Digital Card Game

Joehonkie Re:This news truly matters. (79 comments)

It IS, in fact, news for nerds. You will notice it is posted in the "games" category, which you are welcome to ignore if it takes up too much of your important time.

Boeing Touts Fighter Jet To Rival F-35 — At Half the Price

Joehonkie Re:Waste (497 comments)

Which is all well and good until you face another power with modern manned airplanes which have instant response time. I'm not supporting these projects, but comparing a manned fighter to a drone is pretty apples to oranges. Drones tend to occupy fairly different roles like observation and hitting motionless or slow ground targets and children.

Boeing Touts Fighter Jet To Rival F-35 — At Half the Price

Joehonkie Re:ROI (497 comments)

Given the extremely slow comparative airspeed and the 2-second lag on controls, I'm guessing the Reapers would fare poorly.

Controversy Over Violet Blue's Harm Reduction Talk

Joehonkie Re:Wrong Talk (562 comments)

It is a talk about hackers as a high risk population. That is the subject matter. The title does not change that fact.

Federal Court OKs Amazon's System of Suggesting Alternative Products

Joehonkie Re:Truly sad (102 comments)

Right, so like going to a store and asking for a product that they don't have and being directed to similar products. As mentioned in the case and equally insane.
