LuxMaker Re:Accessory? (98 comments)

How can anyone be an accessory to a "crime" for which no one was convicted?

It is called the Stockholm syndrome and it was invented in Sweden.

Feds Warrantlessly Tracking Americans' Real Time Credit Card Activity

LuxMaker Re:We are all suspects, welcome to the police stat (299 comments)

Looks like this guy is a classic victim of COINTELPRO. Anyone who calls this guy paranoid schizophrenic or the like is probably in on the action.

Also this should be a lesson not to just piss off banks and financial institutions of America but anyone powerful in government for they can and will ruin you.

Debt Collectors Using Facebook To Embarrass Those Who Owe

LuxMaker Re:So pay your bills (266 comments)

I use the MagicJack for my phone service and my number is totally unlisted and if I need a new number it costs a nominal fee.

With this I find it would be hard to be harassed by anyone, bill collectors or otherwise.

Will Netflix Destroy the Internet?

LuxMaker Re:The answer is - Never (577 comments)

First they came for Google and I did not complain as I was not Google.

Then they came for Netflix and I did not complain as I was not Netflix.

Then they came for my wallet through low caps and high overage charges and I could not complain because I had no more money.

How Do You Manage the Information In Your Life?

LuxMaker Sansa Mp3 player and large calendar on the wall (366 comments)

I use the Mp3 player for voice recordings/notes when I am out and about. I use the calendar on the wall for appointments, grocery lists, rent amounts, and such. I use facebook notes for info that I don't care about with regards to privacy. I try to follow the engineering principle of KISS or keep it simple stupid when dealing with the volume of information.

Senators Tell Facebook To Quit Sharing Users' Info

LuxMaker Re:Free economy, regulate fraud (256 comments)

You may not be able to purge the data from their systems but you can alter it in such a way to make it unrecognizable. Start by going to Account in the upper right hand corner then go to account settings. Change all that data in there and use an email you create just for this purpose and link to it. Problem solved.

Canadian Judge Orders Disclosure of Anonymous Posters

LuxMaker How long will it take for someone to write a virus (250 comments)

I can imagine a virus or worm that hijacks someone's machine to harvest accounts to post libel. Who is responsible then? What happens when the judge's computer gets hijacked? Same with any speech we find the need to control, who does the law find responsible? Can you imagine a Beowulf cluster of these?

Magicjack Loses Legal Attack Against Boing Boing

LuxMaker Re:Well, MagicJack succeeded in (148 comments)

I have activated 4 MagicJacks without issue. I suspect the problem here may be a PEBCAK error here but I am not sure unless I have more info on what you did to include the spec of your machine and connection. I am not sure how your post was rated +5 "informative" because it is anything but. I don't doubt that you had an issue with two of them but from the looks of it you didn't even try to download the update which I suspect would of fixed your issue. Just a guess without knowing more. FYI I do not in any way work for MagicJack.

Debunking a Climate-Change Skeptic

LuxMaker Re:Its All About Power and Money (807 comments)

Nobody has every claimed that we are making the sun hotter. This demonstrates that you really don't understand the problem. The problem is that the heat from the sun is being trapped here. As an analogy, my house stays pretty cool even on hot days without the need for air conditioning. As long as it gets cooler at night, it stays pleasant during the day. But if it stays hot at night, it doesn't get a chance to lose the build-up of heat from the previous day and it gets more unpleasant as after day. The days are not necessarily hotter, but the accumulated heat energy means that each successive day has a larger affect.

Some people say the problem is that the heat from the sun is being trapped here while others say there is no human solvable problem as there is a natural cycle of climate change due to sunspots and that no amount of human activity is going to change that. Documentary reference is here on this very subject.

Of course this documentary goes into detail that water is an even greater greenhouse gas than CO2.

Nano-Scale Robot Arm Moves Atoms With 100% Accuracy

LuxMaker Re:Just a thought..... (266 comments)

And when this technology matures it will be used not only to scrub CO2 but also in a eugenics program to scrub unwanted DNA sequences. If you think it can't happen you are very naive and put too much faith into humanity as a whole.
