Snowden Queries Putin On Live TV Regarding Russian Internet Surveillance

Krojack Re:wouldn't matter if it weren't canned (382 comments)

Holy hell, someone else knows how this Government works! Glad I'm not alone in this country now.

The government here all argue out in public but once they get behind closed doors they are scratching each others backs and having a grand ole' time together.

Snowden Queries Putin On Live TV Regarding Russian Internet Surveillance

Krojack Re:wouldn't matter if it weren't canned (382 comments)

None of the people you mentioned own the media

Here in America I see it the other way around. The media, which are just large corporations, own the government.

NSA Allegedly Exploited Heartbleed

Krojack I don't understand (149 comments)

Why can we not start a class action lawsuit against the Government, NSA and those that allow snooping around in personal data without probable cause?

Double Take: Condoleezza Rice As Dropbox's Newest Board Member

Krojack Re:Force her out! (313 comments)

I'm betting they see a very small drop in usage/users. I'm going to pick a random percent out of my ass and guess that less than 10% of Dropbox users will even know about her getting on the board and of that a very small % will care enough to drop the service.

But I'm just making a wild guess and have nothing to base my numbers on.

Theo De Raadt's Small Rant On OpenSSL

Krojack Re:"It's Not a Tumor" - Oh Wait, It Is (301 comments)

As we all know, most high level hacks these days come from an internal computer getting infected with something.

Dyn.com Ends Free Dynamic DNS

Krojack Re:You cancel service? (240 comments)

So either $48/year for a static IP or $25/year for dyn.com.... I guess it comes down to what you're using it for and how much you really are willing to spend.

Diablo 3 Expansion Reaper of Souls Launches

Krojack Re:Nope. (166 comments)

After playing the new xpac last night, legendaries were dropping more than cheap whores. Most weren't upgrades but they also start losing their legendary feel if they drop this often. I remember being excited when a yellow item would drop. Now they are nothing but crafting mat trash.

Diablo 3 Expansion Reaper of Souls Launches

Krojack Re:Nope. (166 comments)

I find the drops to be good if not to often. I see "SOME" people on the Blizzard D3 forums bitching that they aren't getting enough legendary drops and it's shitty. I got 8 in one a hour time span one night. Other times I've got zero in an entire day. It's fucking RNG. People need to stop bitching. You want your fucking free handouts, go bitch to your favorite government representative. In this case, keep playing.

Diablo 3 Expansion Reaper of Souls Launches

Krojack Re:Nope. (166 comments)

The loot system is shit - everything from the drops themselves to their rarity to the auction house was designed to extract time and money from players. Yes, the auction house was removed last week but the drops still suck. The auction house (and the design choices made in order to push players to use it) ruined the game for nearly 2 full years.

If you didn't notice, the loot system was revamped and the AH no longer exists.

The art is horrid. Being too bright/colorful isn't my main issue. The worst thing about the art is the god damned World of Warcraft art team shitting up everything.

Being an old retired WoW player of many years (and loving the early years), I don't really see any link in graphics design between D3 and WoW. WoW had a more cartoon look while D3 doesn't if you ask me. So I love the D3 graphics. I feel they were very well done.

Routing and DNS Security Ignored By ISPs

Krojack Re:Time = Money (101 comments)

Most don't give a shit as long as the clients are paying the bills.

The hosting company I work for was like this at one point. The company VP (who has been fired since) make the final call and he said, "If they are current on their bill then ignore it." The only way he would shut a site down is if money was owed or the person complaining had some court order.

On and the VP would also send out SPAM his self while I was sitting here trying to stop SPAM in our mail servers. I hated that guy so much.

$30K Worth of Multimeters Must Be Destroyed Because They're Yellow

Krojack Re:To be fair... (653 comments)

The only Fluke I see it looking sorta similar to is this one. SparkFun offered to change the color. Also it's a multimeter, how much different can it look so it doesn't look like others. That's kinda like Ford suing every auto manufacturer for making cars with 4 wheels.

Ask Apple how you can trademark rounded corners. I'm sure they have lots of insight on this.

Large DDoS Attack Brings WordPress Pingback Abuse Back Into Spotlight

Krojack Re:Wordpress is crap (58 comments)

As is most (or all) CMS packages. Either way you won't see anyone stop using it. CMS packages are a quick install, easy to manage and well... free. Do you want every person or company to pay some programmer thousands of dollars to custom write a site for them? It's highly likely that this custom site will have more bugs and exploits in it anyways.

So what's your solution?

Sundar Pichai: Android Designed For Openness; Security a Lower Priority

Krojack Re:Tap Back (117 comments)

On top of that, at least you get to see what that app wants access to before installing it. Last time I used my iPad it wouldn't show me anything before installing something.

Sundar Pichai: Android Designed For Openness; Security a Lower Priority

Krojack Re:Slippery slope (117 comments)

When it comes to phones and tablets, I don't believe the manufactures really want to lock down the devices. Several offer tools from their websites to unlock bootloaders. It's the cell network carriers that force the manufactures to lock down the devices.

Microsoft Sued Over Vista-To-XP Downgrade Fees

Krojack Krojack writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Krojack (575051) writes "Suit claims the software maker is profiting from a program that allegedly violates antitrust laws. A Los Angeles computer user has filed a lawsuit against Microsoft, claiming that fees the software maker and its partners charge for downgrading PCs from Windows Vista to the older XP operating system violate antitrust rules. Emma Alvarado says in court papers that she was forced to pay $59.25 to downgrade a Vista-based Lenovo system she bought last year to XP. Alvarado claims Microsoft is able to impose such fees because of a lack of competition in the PC market."
