Is the App Store Broken?

Narcocide Re:Not Broken (235 comments)

Uh... sadly I'm afraid he's right. Its actually eating itself alive, and only the most experienced can see it. By the time none of us are left, it will be already too late to save the economy as a whole.

Jesse Jackson: Tech Diversity Is Next Civil Rights Step

Narcocide Re:Stop the idiocracy (491 comments)

This shouldn't be considered flamebait. He's absolutely right. Black culture isn't the only culture that disparages intellect. Corporate culture and rural religious culture also both disparage it quite vehemently. Don't get me wrong though, ... at least if you're white you don't ALSO have to contend against the racism prevalent in both cultures...

Eventually the machines will start designing and building better revisions of themselves autonomously, at which point it will really become their world, not ours.

ScummVM 1.7.0 Released

Narcocide Re:Still no Grim Fandango? (26 comments)

How as this post a troll? My statement was factual, helpful, based on first-hand experience, (I love that game) and in no way soliciting response. Looks like someone out there has mod points and a chip on their shoulder.

Laser Eye Surgery, Revisited 10 Years Later

Narcocide My eyes are too far gone. (547 comments)

I was informed by the doctor that at best they would be able to effectively halve the strength of my eyeglass prescription. I would still be so nearsighted that I would not be able to drive legally (or safely for that matter) without prescription lenses, and while I would see measurably better, I would still not see enough better that it would bear any logistical improvement in my daily life. The television would still be a giant blur to me from the couch. Summary: NO THANKS. I will wait until they can fully replace my defective eyes.

Narcocide Re:Black hole? (277 comments)

There actually IS a law, its called the "Fraudulent Online Identity Sanctions Act" and its an ammendment to some other law I forget the name of but I'm sure is as easy to google.

while you're right that was a customer service agreement, a simple internet search will show you a ton of references to the text of the actual law.

Narcocide Re:Black hole? (277 comments)

1) Uh. No, there is no such law.
2) If there was such a law, it would not require the email address listed to be read by a human being.

REFUTED on both counts.
