Google Proposes To Warn People About Non-SSL Web Sites

Kinwolf Re:Stupid (354 comments)

I have an SSL certificate from PositiveSSL, and I had to remove it, simply because Chrome and Firefox would put a HUGE warning that the site wasn't ID'ed. Yeah, you can put SSLfor cheap but unlesss you PAY premium for the identification, they still put a huge warning that scare people away. For a hobby website like mine it's worthless to pay for identification. I hope LetsEncrypt will solve that problem

Firefox Signs Five-Year Deal With Yahoo, Drops Google as Default Search Engine

Kinwolf Sad they chose Yahoo over Bing (400 comments)

I'm sad at this. If they wanted to swtich, I'd have prefered Bing at the least. In term of quality search, as far as I'm concerned it goes Google->Bing->Yahoo->DuckDuckGo As an example, I was doing a search to see what are my options to check Boardgamegeek on a mobile without using the main website as it's not mobile friendly at all. So I did this search on all 4 engines: "boardgamegeek on mobile" Google and Bing showed as first result the bgg wiki page on mobile access which has all the relevant information. Yahoo, even though it's using Bing tech, never showed that search result anywhere in the first page, neither did DuckDuckGo, and their search results didn't gave me any answer I was looking for. So, useless in the case of this search. So, pretty sad that they chose Yahoo :(

Marvel's New Thor Will Be a Woman

Kinwolf The same speech all over again... (590 comments)

And this new Thor isn't a temporary female substitute — she's now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy! They said the same thing back then for the new Spiderman, the new Green Lantern(DC), the new ... you get it. When sales plummet for a few months(like they always do, because comic books oldies only like their sacred Statu Quo), they'll bring back the old Thor fast enough.

Why Games Should Be In the Public Domain

Kinwolf I understand Broussard (360 comments)

I understand Geroge Broussard being againt this; If games would fall in public domain after X time passed, Duke Nukem Forever would have actually entered public domain before ever being published.

FLOSS 2013: the Survey For Open Source Contributors, a Decade Later

Kinwolf Re:Not enough application success stories (27 comments)

Apache is a good counter-example. There is basically only one way to be the Best Web Server Ever, so Apache has no significant FOSS competitors. Persons who see a way to make a server better contribute to the Apache project.

Nginx maybe?

Gaming Legends Discuss Using Kickstarter For Their Next Projects

Kinwolf Re:Excessive greed. (112 comments)

Indeed, it is following the same path as Ebay, which was once an awesome place to find and sell older stuff, but these days it's populated at 98% by Ebay Stores with set prices, and lost it's usefullness as an auction site. Kickstarter is going that way too, it started as a great place for new, small projects, but is being overrun now by corps who uses it as a launch platform for their next product.

Michael Dell To Buy Dell Inc.

Kinwolf Re:Good (175 comments)

I could care less what Apple does or did, the comment was meant to be humorous since Steve Jobs once said there would never be a low end iPhone.

Kinwolf Re:Good (175 comments)

After Apple showed the IPhone 5c this week, I'm pretty sure nothing could make him laugh in his tomb right now.

Kinwolf Re:What is Bruce Schneier's game? (397 comments)

Err, what article are you talking about? I read the article linked in the summary and nowhere does he talks about GPG or others. I'd be interested in reading the FA you are quoting from.

Kinwolf Re:Closed source drivers still a bane (82 comments)

Waiting for Tuppe666 to tell me why this is good, and how Google is jesus.

I don't know if google is jesus, , but after googling it I found out that Jesus is ON Google +!

Android 4.3 Based CyanogenMod 10.2 Nightlies Arrive

Kinwolf Closed source drivers still a bane (82 comments)

I tried CM 10 on my GS3 and sadly I had to remove it. Wi-fi, camera and bluetooth refused to work properly, kept crashing or had awful performance, depending on the revision installed. So I went back to the stock ROM, which isn't too bad thankfully, but still has alot of services and programs that I have no use of and yet are always loaded in memory. Next phone(which should not be before 3 years) I am going Nexus to avoid all that pain.(and hoping that Nexus phones still exist at that time)

Tiny, Hackable Quadcopter Drone Launches Pre-Orders

Kinwolf Kinwolf writes  |  about 2 years ago

Kinwolf (945345) writes ""A tiny new open source drone kit made by Bitcraze is buzzing its way to market this spring, targeted at hackers and modders who want to explore droning indoors as well as out."
Now I know what I'll do for the first 7 minutes of lunch break! The pre-order price is 173$ for the most avanced model, and some soldering is required. The telemetry being available is a pretty nice touch."
