Orson Scott Card Pleads 'Tolerance' For Ender's Game Movie

Kungpaoshizi Nobody cares (1448 comments)

Nothing to see here, except the movie, move along. I wish morons would quick bickering about someones past remarks, if everyone was under the spotlight, we would all be screwed. I have a feeling those who call out other peoples intolerances (but by doing so they ARE intolerant) in fact need to look inward, perhaps there lies the problem.

KWin Maintainer: Fanboys and Trolls Are the Cancer Killing Free Software

Kungpaoshizi Re:Wow, just wow. (406 comments)

I agree with your other points, but this: If some troll (or anyone else I disagree with) This just makes me think you're as ignorant as the OP. Everyone should be able to say whatever they want. If people cannot "tune them out", "ignore them", or "have an intellectual conversation" to help this other person see the error of their ways, that is their own fault. And if the "argument" lacks any validity and is nonsense, good. At least it will be entertaining to read. Ultimately though, I would feel sad for them, that they cannot construct a decent conversation to express why it is the way they feel.

KWin Maintainer: Fanboys and Trolls Are the Cancer Killing Free Software

Kungpaoshizi Re:ok wait... (406 comments)

Agreed. This guy is a classic example of an ignorant human that believes their opinion should matter more than other humans. Not only that, he discriminates to the point of adding a name to people. I think he should just make it about color of the skin, just about the same kind of argument.

KWin Maintainer: Fanboys and Trolls Are the Cancer Killing Free Software

Kungpaoshizi You sir are a troll (406 comments)

How dare you try to limit my ability to use my free speech. Why not change change your message to say: N*ggers and Jews are the cancer Because the label you are attempting to put to a "people" is intolerance and discriminatory. And we're not tolerant of those who are intolerant.

Ask Richard Dawkins About Evolution, Religion, and Science Education

Kungpaoshizi Question for you sir (1142 comments)

I never heard of you, but your quote of 'One of the truly bad effects of religion is that it teaches us that it is a virtue to be satisfied with not understanding.', is truly quite amazing! I guess the one question I have for you though, that out-ranks my other thoughts is this; Looking back through your entire life and career, what is the one hint of a thought that makes you truly believe there is no divine being "in charge" of all we see, or can you not truly say that because no matter how much you see you still have a hint of a doubt? Thank you sir, I wish you well!

Is Microsoft's Price Model For the Surface Justifiable?

Kungpaoshizi Too pricey, ya lost my sale (417 comments)

I was very gung-ho for the surface release... I was going to buy multiple RT's at the rumored 199$ price point, heck, even if they were 300, I would buy 2-3. But at the price they're being released at, I'm not going to buy any except maybe the Pro because I'm not sure if RT will stick, it will take support from Dev's. Also the Pro I'll be able to integrate and use my resources with, RT not so much. But more over, if the Pro is going to be 1k+$ I'll only buy 1, just because I would like to see Microsoft producing hardware.

'Cosmo' — a C#-Based Operating System

Kungpaoshizi Does it run Crysis? (406 comments)

Really, if it's off C#, wouldn't it be possible to install DirectX? That's really the only reason I use Windows... though 7 has been a fantastic experience for numerous other reasons.

IBM Shows Off Brain-Inspired Microchips

Kungpaoshizi If these brains work like managements brains... (106 comments)

It won't even get off the ground, they'll spend too much "thinking" about them, and the workers will take the ideas to other companies that actually pay for their hard labor. IBM blows now.

Old Arguments May Cost Linux the Desktop

Kungpaoshizi Linux will never be mainstream (591 comments)

Because the community as a whole can never have 1 goal. Everyone wants to do their own thing, and that will be their legacy. I've talked to numerous linux users who talk down about Microshaft, but ya know why I use Windows? Because a lot of people came together on one goal, Windows. If Linux would produce and keep maintaining advances on 1 single OS distro, then yes, I would consider it, but it would be a requirement that it had something comparable to Direct X. But until the community comes together, the products will always be half-ass.

MagicJack Femtocell Gates Cell Traffic to VoIP

Kungpaoshizi Re:Does MagicJack Work? (243 comments)

Well if it's something that works with your computer, I would think that it would have to be on... :D That's like buying a car stereo, and then complaining you have to be in your car to use it, unless you want to hack together something...

MagicJack Femtocell Gates Cell Traffic to VoIP

Kungpaoshizi Re:Does MagicJack Work? (243 comments)

Seriously, it seems like you don't have it, otherwise if you do, and you still say this, you don't realize what you have. It works great, the "ad-laden software" you speak of is not that, it has a couple frames that load MJ deals, that's it. It doesn't swallow your bandwidth. It doesn't 'infect' your pc with adware like you make it sound. It has great tech support. And yes, unlimited service for 20$/year is totally possible, why, because of the crazy little idea people are talking about, called the "internet". And you don't have to leave your pc on 24/7. If the unit isn't plugged in, their servers host your voicemail, and you can access it remotely via a regular phone... Sounds like you either don't have it, or you had a rotten time with it, but I live, breathe, and eat computers, and this is by far the BEST phone service provider deal hands down. Sure, it's not a cell phone, but if you have a laptop/netbook, are you really gonna say that you can't pretty much go anywhere without being able to find the internet? Heck, paired with a random 3G adapter even... I don't mean to offend, but your words just reek of ignorance or impatience...

MagicJack Femtocell Gates Cell Traffic to VoIP

Kungpaoshizi Re:MJ is a SCAM folks (243 comments)

na, I was curious about it too, but it's gotta be the best phone type gear I've ever got.. I did have quality issues in the beginning, but after a call to customer service, after the results of their troubleshooting (and my tech skillz), THEY admitted to their server causing the issue, and said "we'll be updating the server soon". I didn't know what to think. A couple days later, the issue was fixed, and quality was 100%. I stand by this product, and those who say it's a scam, are either r-tarded, or are afraid for their phone company they work for...

Kungpaoshizi You newbs, MJ is not a scam... (243 comments)

I've had MajicJack for more than 6 months now, it's the best thing I have ever found for phone service. Yes it sucks at times when I'm downloading etc, then the quality suffers a little, but otherwise 20$ a year, ya, I bet anyone and everyone screaming "SCAM!" is a freakin phone service salesman... Phone companies and cell companies can't come anywhere near 20$ a year, not even skype, and I have noticed the quality IS better than skype... MajicJack == the end of the line for residential phone companies

IT Job Satisfaction Plummets To All-Time Low

Kungpaoshizi Re:No doubt. Management these days == joke (453 comments)

forgot to mention, yes, I actually had a boss, who was above 5-10 tech's, and she said if you asked her anything about pc's etc, she would reply with: "I don't know anything about computers, don't ask me!!" Yes, that was aggrivating..

The United States cannot save the world.

US Gov inducing entrapment online?

Kungpaoshizi Kungpaoshizi writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Kungpaoshizi (1660615) writes "I recently received a phone call from a friend who's significant other has been detained by police and various government agencies, under the accusation that he had downloaded kiddy porn.
I don't know the guy too well, but as I discussed the possible scenarios of her question "how does downloading stuff work", I came to find out several things that I found quite disturbing.

It all had to do with some cooperation of multiple agencies in some sort of sting operation for 'anti kiddy porn', which I completely agree, is a noble cause, and that kinda stuff should be searched for, by the government, to eliminate threats to our children of this nation.

But her story made me really think...

Supposedly her b/f somehow downloaded something, that qualified as KP, and one day abunch of cops show up, throw him in the paddywagon, took the PC in the house, and the couple Blackberry's they had...

All she really knew is what they had told her, which was, '3 of 5 hits were present on the computer'.
She really didn't know anything else than that, as she's not computer literate, nor did she even get to speak with her b/f by the time she called me seeking advice/clarification..
But the more I spoke with her, trying to find out exactly what happened, the more it became clear, that he went to a website, and some of the porn that was there, was indeed illegal.
2 points came to mind instantly:
Either there was stuff on the net, the gov was aware about, and they monitored visitors to the site
or
It was posted by the gov as a dummy site, and mixed in, there was illegal stuff

Which brings the next question of, has anyone else heard of this since it was a nationwide thing, and she had heard that 40~ something people out of 100+ people were arrested so far in this 'sting operaiton'?

Ultimately though, it makes me think, if the government knew about this, why the hell did they not take the site down, whereas leaving it up even for a period of time, could allow the unknowing Joe Schmoe to end up next to my friends b/f in lockup
or
If the site was put on the net by the feds, even though the cause was just, how could it be anything other than entrapment, unless the site said specifically "KIDDY PORN HERE!", in which case, it would bring me back to my first point.

I find the entire thing a little shady, I asked her to find out the source of this information but still have yet to hear back, she's in the process of having to sell abunch of stuff to get a lawyer, and currently the guy is being held with a quarter million dollar bail set...

All I gotta say is, if the gov is willingly allowing or posting this information on the net, I'm am shocked, and fear the situation with our country in which this is allowable."

Denying IT Staff Admin Rights?!

Kungpaoshizi Kungpaoshizi writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Kungpaoshizi (1660615) writes "I work for a rather large international corporation that does insurance... Just recently I discovered that the higher-ups are trying to strip the on-site IT support staff in every location, of their admin privelages... As of right now we do not have local admin privelages on machines, which is a hinderance, but not entirely crippling, but to remove our admin rights all together?! Has anyone else ever experienced this in their company? Personally I think it's one of the biggest soon-to-be blunders I've ever heard of, but it definately shows that managers don't know jack about the real work that goes on in an IT job... Thanks~"
