This almost sounds like a lead in for "scientific excuses" for chemtrails.

Oh, look, its the turbo-props causing the lasting contrail, those jets are not equipped with special sprayers at all.

How To Grow a Head

I was going to reference that movie "Teeth" about the hungry vagina.
Then I remembered he is a /.er, so that generally precludes productive contact with hot chicks, even if it is just serving them dinner ;)

Google Slams Viacom For Secret YouTube Uploads

Missing_dc Re:Smells like bullshit (307 comments)

I saw an article recently that claimed that 11.something % of ALL web traffic was related to do-no-evil Google.
An astonishing number (also astonishing is Facebook's 7.07%).

With even 5% of web traffic able to be collected, categorized, linked, crosslinked and inferred through traffic heuristics...
Holy Shit what a force to be reckoned with!

It almost makes me feel bad for the average chump (Corps included, staffed as they are by AFCs), since they willingly give all this info to the bots.

A properly paranoid person would ask for a search anonymiser(sp) to act as a proxy and hunt down random crap to obfuscate the real results.... Anyone know of a service like that I can use?

Space Exploration Needs Extraterrestrial Ethics

Missing_dc Re:Puny Optimists... (162 comments)

On the flip side, we'll probably look about as advanced as primates to an advanced alien life form, who will probably perform experiments on us.

What is to say that is not already happening?
Take a look at US government and the military and you will see the (self-proclaimed) advanced lifeforms are already doing this.

Fuel Cell Marvel "Bloom Box" Gaining Momentum

Missing_dc Re:About $2K savings per month (562 comments)

How about using this to power a farming community, using the farm waste to fuel your methane plant, and repaying them in electricity. Cow manure and agricultural waste make LOTS of methane. I have heard of farms that produce their own power(and a little extra to sell back to the grid) just off a methane based power plant fueled from the waste they produce. Once the bio-matter is properly consumed, the sludge can go back on the fields.

Seriously guys, if we are going to go green, we need to look at self-sustaining systems.

Symbian Completes Transition To Open Source

Missing_dc Re:http://maemo.org/ (189 comments)

While I am immensely interested in the development of Symbian(as I hate my work provided Windows "smart" phone) I am glad I am a sysamdin, not a developer. Knowing I could do wonders if I invested tons of my time seems somehow futile. I would rather ride the backs of skilled developers and provide constructive criticism (and lots of homemade beer) than do the actual work myself.

Thank you for making me appreciate my role in this process so much more.

If ever you find yourself in Fredericksburg, VA, hit me up, and I will gladly drop you a few liters of my 11% Warhammer Stout, just don't go to sleep with the provided buzz running, or you will understand the "warhammer"(to the head) part of the name.

(if you are close to fxbg, and like to brew, let me know at djmissing- at - gmail -dot- com , I am making a wheat beer from raw grain, malting it right now. I'd be happy to give you a few pounds of raw wheat grain and a recipe to play with. after the coming storm, of course.)

How To Get a Job At a Mega-Corp

Missing_dc Re:Freelance decker (373 comments)

Funny, I was wondering how he'd pull off an 8 to 5 job when he has the 4 kids from 7 to 3.

Talk about a forgiving schedule or a kid-friendly work environment, and doesn't that interfere with their school. or does the megacorp handle their education too.... now that's inducting them into corporate culture early!

What about an INTERPOL investigation into Obama's origins and his doings as the POTUS?

Under this order, all that becomes locked and sealed away, including their evidence!.

When she read the article her first words were "Where do we get one of those?" O.o

Funny, I laughed and called out the RSS summary to my wife who was playing with our kid in the next room and she had the same response!

I said "Don't you think thats a little personal?"

She replied "Not with one of these!" and shot me a big grin =D

Super-tiny transister radios on the horizon.

Missing_dc Missing_dc writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Missing_dc (1074809) writes "Researchers at the University of Illinois, have come up with a way to make microscopic radios out of carbon nanotubes. They consist of two radio frequency amplifiers, a radio frequency mixer and an audio amplifier, all made from the carbon nanotube materials. Regular-sized headphones plug directly into an an output transistor made from the nanotube material. And they used a regular-sized antenna. I imagine this technology could easily be use for super-tiny listening devices, or flea -sized "bugs"."
