Netflix Rejects Canadian Regulator Jurisdiction Over Online Video

Minwee Re:Fuck yourselves culture police (143 comments)

Nobody wants to see Netflix start shit like "this video is not available in your area".

Start?

maybe if Canadian shows were any good, they would get naturally popular as well. Fucking dumbasses.

Hell yeah. If Canada could produce anything as good as The Tudors, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Ray Bradbury Theatre, SCTV, Prisoners of Gravity, This Hour Has 22 Minutes or The Kids in the Hall, then they wouldn't suck.

Netflix Rejects Canadian Regulator Jurisdiction Over Online Video

Minwee Re:Not surprisingly the CRTC is made up of ... (143 comments)

So long as he does a good job (and he has) and does use his position of power to push those beliefs on others (he hasn't) you have nothing to complain about.

Right. It's not like his government is shutting down libraries and burning books. That kind of thing only happens on American TV.

I've seen what passes for syrup in your country. It's not that much different from the oil.

Ask Slashdot: Finding a Job After Completing Computer Science Ph.D?

Minwee Re:Time gap in CV (260 comments)

Tell them you were in rehab for heroin addiction for those six years. It's more acceptable.

"12 days clean, praise Jesus!"

He's looking for a job in IT, not running for Mayor of Toronto.

Canadian Regulator Threatens To Impose New Netflix Regulation

Minwee Re:why does the CRTC need this list? (319 comments)

Why doesn't Canada just take justin beiber back, call it even?

Unless the USA restores him to the condition in which he was originally received, they're going to have to forfeit their damage deposit.

Canadian Regulator Threatens To Impose New Netflix Regulation

Minwee Re:why does the CRTC need this list? (319 comments)

It just proves so called Canadian culture, art, music sucks and cannot stand on it own two feet. Canada would rather have American culture than its own shitty home grown crap.

Hell yeah! Why would they want to see Canadian movies when they could be watching films with good, ole AMERICAN actors like Dan Ackroyd, Raymond Burr, John Candy, Neve Campbell, Jim Carrey, Michael Cera, James Doohan, Nathan Fillion, Michael J. Fox, Matt Frewer, Lorne Greene, Corey Haim, Phil Hartman, Tricia Helfer, Michael Ironside, Margot Kidder, Eugene Levy, Eric McCormack, Norm McDonald, Rick Moranis, Carrie-Anne Moss, Mike Myers, Leslie Neilsen, Catherine O'Hara, Sandra Oh, Tahmoh Penikett, Christopher Plummer, Seth Rogen, William Shatner, Martin Short, Jewel Staite, Donald Sutherland... Heck, that's half the cast of almost every Comedy or SF film ever made.

All Canada has is Justin Bieber and Nickleback.

Minwee Re:why does the CRTC need this list? (319 comments)

Except Netflix is **not** a Canadian company.

If they want to operate in Canada, then they **are**.

Is Canada still taxing blank media to subsidize the "victims" of "piracy?"

Yes. Is the USA still allowing copyright trolls to financially ruin people in ways that are not legal in Canada?

Enjoy that.

Ask Slashdot: How To Avoid Becoming a Complacent Software Developer?

Minwee Tomatoh, Tomahto. (274 comments)

During my career, I have noticed that many of the older software developers are burnt out. They would rather do their 9-5, get paid, and go home.

Maybe they have friends, families, interests and possibly even lives outside of their jobs. Perhaps they are even passionate about things that don't take place within the confines of their day jobs.

If this is a state which you are whole-heartedly trying to avoid and you use phrases like "90 Hours A Week And Loving It" in an entirely serious manner, then just keep doing that for about five to ten more years and you will start to understand exactly how people get burned out.

Wave Power Fails To Live Up To Promise

Minwee Re:Just a thought (195 comments)

IMO, wave power is just too random. Tidal power is predictable, and can be harnessed both on the rise and the fall of the tides. Just think about havesting the flow of the Bay of Fundy!

Yes. Just think about it.

ISIS Bans Math and Social Studies For Children

Minwee Re:they will defeat themselves (952 comments)

If we didn't need oil it might happen, but we do. So we will do what the Saudi King tells us to do ...

The King called up his jet fighters / He said you better earn your pay
Drop your bombs between the Minarets / Down the Casbah way
As soon as the Sharif was chauffeured outta there / The jet pilots tuned to the cockpit radio blare
As soon as the Sharif was outta their hair / The jet pilots wailed...

Minwee Re:they will defeat themselves (952 comments)

People said similar things about Nazi's (yeah I just Godwined the conversation).

Not only that, you misused an apostrophe at the same time. I think the entire Internet just imploded.

Microsoft Paid NFL $400 Million To Use Surface, But Announcers Call Them iPads

Minwee Re:football can cause brain damage (405 comments)

I agree calling the thing 'Surface' could lead to confusion. If an announcer said something like "the coach is checking his Surface now", what percentage of viewers might have thought he was referring to something other than the gadget in the coach's hand?

I would have gone with "The coach is checking his fondleslab now", but saying that kind of thing can get you fired nowadays.

Private Police Intelligence Network Shares Data and Targets Cash

Minwee Re:Defund (142 comments)

You keep telling yourself that. Meanwhile, in GB nobody fears getting robbed by police. Or getting killed for not dropping to the ground within 100ms.

How's that working out?

Does Learning To Code Outweigh a Degree In Computer Science?

Minwee Re:False premise (546 comments)

Getting past the gatekeepers is the problem. You can have a degree in theater or math and still get a job in computing. The bar is having SOME kind of degree. This is not a problem just in computing. It's a general corporate affliction.

"Nearly half of the software developers in the United States do not have a college degree. Many never even graduated from high school."

Unless half of the software developers in the United States are self employed and work out of their own basements, only one of these statements can be correct.
