Emails Show Feds Asking Florida Cops To Deceive Judges About Surveillance Tech

Music2Eat Re:And? (251 comments)

The real problem is not that the government is out of control. The government does not move with a single mind... it is aggregate and it is not after anyone but criminals.

Everyone's a criminal. Federal laws are convoluted, vague, and there's more of them then you can even begin to imagine. A Boston Lawyer wrote a book about how the average American commits three felonies a day. Without even being aware of it.

So, yes, the problem IS that the Government is out of control.

UK Authorities Threaten To Storm Ecuadorian Embassy To Arrest Julian Assange

Music2Eat What I don't understand (1065 comments)

The US has extradition treaties with the UK, so why would he have to be extradited to Sweden before he can be extradited to the US, if that's what this is really all about? It doesn't make any sense to me.

New Music Boss, Worse Than Old Music Boss

Music2Eat Re:Fairly well known issue (567 comments)

Why can't indie artists make a decent living at their craft?

They can, they're just not going to do it selling music cds/tapes/records anymore. They're going to have to do it the old fashioned way, at live shows.

Most people seem to forget that the phonograph is a fairly new invention. It's just a blip on the radar in the lifespan of music. For thousands of years musicians made money playing live. The decent ones could use it to supplement their income, the great ones could make a living off it.

There's plenty of indie artists out there that are making a decent living despite not getting any airplay or huge record sales (Decemberists, Wilco). Are they bajillianaires? No. The days of recording a song and then being able to live off that nights labor for the rest of your life are over (Beatles) and I for one am not sad to see them go. Musicians should be out there constantly perfecting their craft, not resting on their laurels.

Ask Slashdot: Updating a Difficult Campground Wi-Fi Design?

Music2Eat Re:Typical RV park (237 comments)

You also need to factor in the fact that if you're staying in Motels, you're going to be pretty much eating at a restaurant every night. With a camper you have a full kitchen. Having spent 53 days traveling around the country not this last summer, but the previous, I can say with out a doubt I would not have wanted to do it living out of motel rooms. Having to pack and unpack the car every night, living out of a suitcase, and sleeping in a different bed every night would have gotten old real quick. With a camper, you have all your stuff stored in the camper, closets for your clothes, and a bed you can get used to. We got pretty good at hooking and unhooking the camper, we had it down to under 5 mins. The best part though, if you really need to use the bathroom, there's no searching for one, you're hauling one around with you. Just pull over and use it. If you think they're easy to find, your coming from a coasters perspective. There are still vast stretches of this country that have nothing in them but a road, running straight and true for miles and miles and miles and miles and...

Breaking the Codes In Oslo Terrorist's Manifesto

Music2Eat Re:Why is this being made public? (231 comments)

Except, instead of dissuade them, it would more likely force them to speed up their plans. You really think crowd sourcing this would get better/quicker results then the dedicate code breakers at some place like the FBI or MI6? You really think, "possibly", dissuading them is better then actually catching them?

Breaking the Codes In Oslo Terrorist's Manifesto

Music2Eat Re:Why is this being made public? (231 comments)

I'm not questioning why the manifesto was made public, but why people would go public with the fact they may be onto hidden information contained within that manifesto.

Breaking the Codes In Oslo Terrorist's Manifesto

Music2Eat Why is this being made public? (231 comments)

Why is this being made public? If this points to conspirator's or other sensitive information, shouldn't this have been quietly handed to the police so that they don't tip their hand?

United States Loses S&P AAA Credit Rating

Music2Eat Re:Two things... (1239 comments)

You may not agree with it, but tying the budget to increasing debt is completely reasonable. If you want to extend you're credit limit with your credit card company, they're not going to just rubber stamp it, they're going to want to review your income and expenditures. What isn't reasonable, is taking half off the budgeting methods completely off the table before negotiations even start.

Anonymous Goes After GodHatesFags.com

Music2Eat Re:Ohhh the irony... (744 comments)

What anonymous don't seem to get is that popular speech doesn't NEED protection. No ones going to stop you from saying something they agree with. It's unpopular speech, be it scientific, political, or religious that the laws are there to protect. As disgusting as the WBBC people are, they have a right to show the world just how big a bunch of douche bags they are.

Avoiding DMCA Woes As an Indy Game Developer?

Music2Eat Indy Game Developer? (494 comments)

Which part of this game did you develop exactly? The characters? The game play? The maze layout?

I haven't heard the sound effects, just seen your screen shots, but I'd be willing to bet they sound exactly like "pacman" as well.

You've developed nothing. All you did was steal someone elses ideas and try and claim them as your own. This is exactly what copyright is for. Try developing your OWN game, then claim to be an Indy Game Developer.

DHS Seizes 75+ Domain Names

Most people in the U.S. wouldn't know they live in a tyrannical state if it walked up and grabbed their junk.

They wouldn't, considering this is happening in airports all over the country every day.
