Of course he does, that's kinda why he started it in the first place. ;)

Khakionion Re:Automated Telephone Systems (307 comments)

And as for those "image transformers," they're around too, but not so widespread, and they're at the will of the video sender, not the receiver.

Study Abroad For Computer Science Majors?

Khakionion Re:Study Abroad FTW (386 comments)

I went to foreign campuses of my US-based university. Actually, I started/completed my schooling entirely overseas, so while I could have gone to school in the US, I elected to do it all abroad.

If you live in the States, that's probably the best course of action; go to a US school that has good international transfer options.

Study Abroad For Computer Science Majors?

Khakionion Study Abroad FTW (386 comments)

I went to Australia and Japan for grad school, can't recommend it highly enough. Not only was my program great, but the international experience is invaluable. You owe it to yourself to spend at least a year studying abroad, whether it adds to your technical degree or not.

iPhone App Store's "Non-Compete" Clause

Khakionion Khakionion writes  |  about 6 years ago

Khakionion writes "Recently an iPhone app was denied placement in the iPhone App Store because it "duplicates iTunes functionality." This sort of "non-compete clause" has many iPhone developers upset. Ars Technica's John Siracusa is thinking about the effectiveness of a boycott of the Apple Design Awards. Says Siracusa, "it doesn't cost developers any money and it hits Apple where it hurts the second-most: ego.""

Epiphany Is Now Exclusively WebKit

Khakionion Khakionion writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Khakionion writes "The developers of the GNOME web browser Epiphany have made an announcement that they're switching to WebKit as the exclusive backend, in order to get around the difficulties in using Gecko, and 'concentrate our efforts on [WebKit] instead of spreading our efforts to multiple back-ends and restricting us to the common features all back-ends support.'"

From the interview: (fast forward to 6:40) "I haven't ripped nobody else off." "So what's with the...Finnish guys, who stole their stuff?" "That mess is so ridiculous...but I'ma tell you...I don't know who their faces are, the hell's wrong with them? It's from a video game, idiot. Freakin' jerks...'sample' and 'stole' is two different things...I don't even stay in Finland!...Whatever, I'm good.""
