NASA Tests Aircraft With Shape Shifting Wings

Mister Liberty Re:Aren't those just called FLAPS? (55 comments)

I thought so too. Yes, NASA has become a PR Company, like so many others.
Don't blame them, what with trillions being sucked up by NSA and private tax breaks.
There's something rotten in the States of the US.

Berlin's Digital Exiles: Where Tech Activists Go To Escape the NSA

Mister Liberty Re:No you don't, you just remember incorrectly (231 comments)

The Civil War was not about the oppression of slaves (contrary to popular belief). It was about the crushing of dissent.
Exactly what the US is still about the present day.

Berlin's Digital Exiles: Where Tech Activists Go To Escape the NSA

Mister Liberty Re:Who would've thought (231 comments)

The younger crowd farts in an off key and they think they're some freedom fighter. In reality present young generations buy the "State"'s eff you dee lock stock and barrel. Exactly that's why us older ones cannot die just yet; it is us -- we are the blossom of our respective nations; we've got jobs to carry out.

New Facebook Update Lets You Choose News Feed Content

Mister Liberty Silly question -- but... (54 comments)

Why the flying fuck would I need another site to feed me news? To be honest, I've visited the website called Facebook
maybe thrice, some indefinite time ago; it felt to be somewhat overhyped.

Judge Says Public Has a Right To Know About FBI's Facial Recognition Database

Mister Liberty EDF: Epithet Density Factor (79 comments)

Nice irony, cause apparently missed by some.
On a related note, Wikipedia or some other organization should do a comparison of epithets placed on Linux vs. Windows throughout the years.
And then, someone else should calculate an " Epithet Density " for the both.

laser lit lunar eclipse

Mister Liberty Mister Liberty writes  |  about 8 months ago

Mister Liberty (769145) writes "Tom Murphy, astrophysicist at UCSD (https://physics.ucsd.edu/do-the-math/) writes:
While not related to Do the Math, I encourage you to check out this (http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140418.html) stunning photo taken by Dan Long capturing our recent laser ranging efforts during the April 15 lunar eclipse. This is a real photo, taken through a C-11 telescope with a focal reducer (700 mm, f/2)—the outgoing laser beam has not been artificially superimposed. Normally it is really difficult to get a picture of our faint beam heading toward the Moon, because the Moon is so glaringly bright. The eclipse provided a great photo-op, and also a means to test the hypothesis of dusty reflectors. To me, this shot is just gorgeous. But I have more invested in it than the average Joe: this picture serves as a visual representation of a key focus in my life over the last 14 years—so of course I’m enamored.""

Filesharing is good!

Mister Liberty Mister Liberty writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Mister Liberty (769145) writes "A just published study by Nico van Eijk (Univ. of Amsterdam) on filesharing concludes that downloaders appear to be the entertainment industry's best customers. Van Eijk and his co-researchers state what most of us knew all along: "Only part of the decline in music sales can be attributed to file sharing. Despite the losses for the music industry, the increased accessibillity of culture renders the overall welfare effects of file sharing robustly positive." The report was published in the 05/04/2010 issue of Communications & Strategies, but is also available here: http://www.ivir.nl/publications/vaneijk/Communications&Strategies_2010.pdf"

Size matters: USB-Stick modding

Mister Liberty Mister Liberty writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Mister Liberty writes "While being in limbo over buying either an Eee-PC or a new 24" TFT, I decided in the meantime to shell out euro 14 for one of those trendy A-Data Eee-PC USB-sticks (model S701, 4GB). Guess what. Kinderegging this little gem reveals what must be the world's smallest USB-stick, literally thumbnail-sized. Instructions, which are ludicrously simple, can be found at http://www.xs4all.nl/~bjdouma/A-Data-S701-USB-stick/mod.html. Enjoy!"
