I'm sick of all the liberal Bush bashing. Let's get one thing straight - Bush never smoked anything. He was a coke head.

MS Adds Security Suite To Update Service, Antivirus Rival Objects

MechaShiva Oh, the outrage! (324 comments)

The whole anti-virus industry seems like an artificial market. I wonder if they privately throw fits every time Microsoft releases patches to close potential security holes too. I mean, extending the argument, doesn't a more secure base system minimize the need for the full time, bloated nanny programs most of these companies provide; thus eroding their market share similarly? Those dirty bastards!

Could Colorblindness Cure Be Morally Wrong?

MechaShiva Re:As as light colorblind... (981 comments)

It's not all puppies and kittens. When I asked my wife for my gray towel, she looked at me quite puzzled. It was shortly thereafter that the mystery of why her husband was using a purple towel was solved.

Apple, the RIAA, and Ringtones

MechaShiva Re:Weird, that (218 comments)

Yeah, you're right. The name is the biggest obstacle to that working out. How silly of me.

Apple already has a proven distribution method in place and a range of devices to play that content back (iPod, AppleTV, etc). Is it really that far off to think they might consider becoming an end to end provider and include exclusive content that they produce themselves?

Fantasy Author Robert Jordan Dead at 58

MechaShiva MechaShiva writes  |  more than 7 years ago

MechaShiva (872964) writes "James Oliver Rigney, better known as Robert Jordan passed away yesterday at the age of 58. On March 23, 2006, Jordan disclosed that he had been diagnosed with primary amyloidosis with cardiomyopathy (cardiac amyloidosis), which has an average life expectancy of 4 years from the time of diagnosis. Best known for his epic and unfinished Wheel of Time series, his untimely death raises questions over when and how the series will be completed (he reportedly told family how it was to end and left extensive notes and dictations). He will be missed."
