Ask Slashdot: What Software Can You Not Live Without?

Killerfishmonkey Windows (531 comments)

First off... Windows 7 is the only way to go. It is stable, and you get to access all those sweet videogames. But before all that, the standard software. Your specific hardware drivers. The latest ones. set the schedule now. Defrag should run once a week, I run mine in the night on Wednesday. if you shut the PC down after every use though. get AUSLogics Defrag. It will run if the computer is idle for 15 mins. Google Chrome - https://www.google.com/intl/en... Google Picasa - https://www.google.com/picasa/ Ccleaner - http://download.cnet.com/CClea... Try and find a version of Office that does not require a monthly bill. Office 365 is a very horrible idea and I have no idea why someone would pay for it monthly. then again there is open office which is free.

Using YouTube For File Storage

Killerfishmonkey Mathematically improbable. (193 comments)

Let us say you encoded a 24P 9 hour video of QR codes. (maximum size available is QR code version 40 177*177 with correction level L) at 23,648 bytes of data source from http://www.qrcode.com/en/about/version.htm..... using math you get 23648 bytes for 24 frames is 24*23648 = 56752 bytes per second for a Minuit is 60 seconds so 56752 * 60 = 34053120 bytes per minuit 60 minuits an hour means 34053120*60 = 2043187200 bytes per hour 9 hours of video so 2043187200*9 = 18388684800 bytes Bytes to gigabytes you get 17.13 GB might as well store the same data on a 50 GB bluray disk a system to read and decode QR data for 24 frames per second would be far more costly than a bluray writer.

Hunters Shoot Down Drone of Animal Rights Group

Killerfishmonkey south (1127 comments)

Animal rights activists are not welcome in the south. People here eat beef, bacon, chicken as a side dish to deer. Also, people in the south don't trap rodents and release them.. they are killed on spot. And they know how to shoot .

robot phone call

Killerfishmonkey Killerfishmonkey writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Killerfishmonkey writes "Dear Slashdot..
I just received a phone call from what I believe is a robot.
the company is affinity savings club. I really wish I had recorded this somehow.
I always listen to telemarketers, and I never buy. but this time I kinda was curious to make a purchase. shazam my credit card is not in my wallet.. so I ask if they accept paypal.. the voice said "YES,,,, YES." long pause. I say.. "how do you want me to pay using pay pal.. via e-mail? text?" the voice says "we accept visa, Mastercard, and american express." I say. "sooo.. no paypal then right?" the voice ".......NO" I then say "I get the feeling I am talking to a robot" there was a slight pause and the voice says "oh I sound that good hu? ha ha ha ". so I ask my favorite news source.. is there a sort of turring test I can give to a telemarketing voice using cleverly pre-recorded human voice?. maybey I could say "you sell refrigerators right?""
