Ask Slashdot: State of the Art In DIY Security Systems?

LeepII Its called a dog (248 comments)

I've owned big dogs my entire life, I have never had even an attempted break in despite living in some really rough neighborhoods. Any "security" system will just let you know some hoodie wearing punk broke in and stole your stuff. A good dog makes that never even happen.

Boston Cops Outraged Over Plans to Watch Their Movements Using GPS

LeepII Bostonian here (409 comments)

As a Bostonian this makes me happy. Maybe the cops sleeping in their cars will now have to work for a living. Having worked downtown for years I know exactly where and when to go to find a cop hiding and asleep in his car.

Supreme Court Refuses To Hear EPIC Challenge To NSA Surveillance

LeepII Same Supreme Court that took 850k bribe (227 comments)

The same Supreme Court that had one of their members accept an 850,000 dollar bribe to decide Citizens United? The system has completely broken down, there are no checks and balances anymore.

$20 'Toy' Deactivates Cheap Home Alarms, Opens Doors

LeepII Dependance on electronics is always a fail (153 comments)

20+ years of owning big dogs. I've lived in several "rough" neighborhoods and I have never had anyone try to break in. A German Shepard's bark is far more effective than any form of electronic protection.

Study Questions H-1B Policies

LeepII Furniture movers given H1-B visas (361 comments)

200 "furniture movers" were given H1-b visa's in 2001. Are there really not enough furniture movers in NYC that a company had to import 200 of them? Google "Urban Moving Systems".

Join COBOL's Next Generation

LeepII COBOL Lives! (276 comments)

I took COBOL in the 80's, my instructor was one of the guys that MADE COBOL. He said even back then, COBOL will not be going anywhere for decades. Man did he call it.

Nice to see the UK government is just as corrupt and for sale as the US one.

Some Windows XP Users Can't Afford To Upgrade

LeepII Apple does this routinely (953 comments)

Background. Wife works as a distribution manager for a small indie publisher. Her job is mostly converting e-books to different formats and uploading them to the online sellers databases. To upload e-books to the Itunes store she has to use a program called IProducer. One day, Iproducer just stopped working when trying to upload to ITunes. Turns out Apple had started blocking access for any copy of IProducer that was too "old". Fine, it is a business need, upgrade IProducer, ooopsss. New version of IProducer won't install on the current OS version. Fine, business need, pay for new OS, then pay for new IProducer, then can sell on ITunes. Pretty neat setup when you think about it. There was nothing wrong with the old version of the Iproducer program, they just shut if off to force people to buy the new OS.

Yokohama Accidentally Tweets That NK Missile Is Inbound

LeepII False flag (131 comments)

Looks like someone got an early start on the North Korea false flag attack. Right up there with the BBC announcing the collapse of WTC 7 20 minutes before it happened.

Ask Slashdot: On the Job Certification Training?

LeepII Usual practice in other industries (117 comments)

Semi - conductor worker here. My employers have always paid for training up front. I wouldn't work at a job that expected me to pay for training the employer requires. I am provided the study materials, I am paid for my study time and for the time spent actually in a classroom. Sounds like the IT field is getting the short end of the stick.

The World's First Supercavitating Boat?

LeepII Writer fail (186 comments)

The writer of the article claims that the super cavitating boat would be invisible to sonar, sorry that is completely wrong. Cavitation is one of the easiest things for sonar to pick up.

2013 H-1B Visa Supply Nearly Exhausted

LeepII Furniture movers (428 comments)

I wonder how many of those visa's are for "furniture movers" like in 2001 and Urban Moving Systems. The US gave 200 visas to Urban Moving Systems.

Researchers Reprogram Voting Machine To Run Pac-man

LeepII Re:"insecure electronic voting" (132 comments)

Well considering a computer programmer already testified before congress that he was asked to write a program that would steal votes from a Republican party member, and when he said he wouldn't the party member said "we will just find someone else", yes there is plenty of reason to be scared. Voter fraud isn't a "possibility" it is ongoing. The GSA already said it could not certify the 2000 election results because of abnormalities with the electronic voting machines.

Buried By The Brigade At Digg

LeepII What about the real mainipulation at Digg? (624 comments)

When this story first broke I thought someone had uncovered the real manipulation at Digg. It is no secret that the founder of Digg went to the Bohemian Grove meeting two years back. Certain stories make the front page regardless of how few Diggs they have, I have seen a story with 13 Diggs on the front page. Also some stories will have the bury button simply not work at all. And finally Digg will refuse a story if the web address is from a web site that tells the truth about the government.

BP forcing confidentiality agrements

LeepII LeepII writes  |  more than 4 years ago

LeepII (946831) writes "BP is forcing scientist to sign confidentiality agreements prior to them being allowed to analyze any samples taken from the gulf. Hooper-Bui’s depictions of samples confiscated by US Fish and Wildlife officials and expeditions blocked by local law enforcement is consistent with the steady stream of reports about obstruction, censorship, and confusion under BP’s private army of contractors. A full and open scientific assessment of the effects of the BP disaster is crucial for the health of the ecosystem and the residents of this American jewel."
