Cyber Gangs Raise Profile of Commerical Online Bank Security

Nein Volts Opting Out? (140 comments)

Wow! After reading this, I'm starting to think that maybe opting out on Web services might be something for me. Banks don't appear to be very responsible for any money stolen. Maybe TARP can help us when our money is stolen by thieves, just-like-the-banks! Oh wait I forgot.. we have to be responsible citizens.(Somebody has to!)

Aussie Data Centres Brace For Dust Storm Barrage

Nein Volts Drought Resistant Plants (148 comments)

I hope they get smart and figure out a way to store water to start and raise plants to stabilize their area. It might even knock off a few degrees of heat during the evening. (If you live near a forest you experience the cool 'air conditioning' that plants can do for you.)

Firefox To Replace Menus With Office Ribbon

Nein Volts Re:Summary of /. Reaction to Proposal (1124 comments)

Hey, can us 'old timers' keep our old, ancient, (straight forward) browser interface? If the same mindset goes to other fields, I'm sure its going to be just as much fun to move the gas, gear shift, brake pedal, turn signal, radio, to different parts of the car each year they come out! Because we have so little to do these days, its fun to relearn the same stuff over and over!

No purpose?? What would happen if you went about this backwards and appeared to be thousands of peers with partial information to someone sniffing about? Just a thought..

Transforming Waste Plastic Into $10/Barrel Fuel

Nein Volts Re:In the future... (315 comments)

Great, but don't hold your breath.. South America has been making fuel out of old tires for years. Canada has been able to make fuel out of garbage for 10 years now by exposing garbage to high heat and pressure with no oxygen. (This stuff is either suppressed or killed.)

Google Getting Into the Solar Mirror Business

Nein Volts Re:Google saves the Planet! (139 comments)

We manufacture (1) unnecessary paperwork, (2)political hatred, (3)unnecessary wars and war products, (4)corporate enforcement rules with paperwork, for benefiting corporations. (See? We still manufacture stuff!)

Google Getting Into the Solar Mirror Business

Nein Volts Re:Cool; Now enhance coal plants (139 comments)

Coal plants are the dirtiest plants in the world! The emit thorium into the air which causes lung cancer and mercury which goes into all waters. Coal, like petroleum is more valuable for other purposes than just burning it.

Microsoft Interns Still Feel the Love

Nein Volts Re:Don't kidd themselves... (293 comments)

Nero played his fiddle as Rome was burning.. History repeats itself with America. The rich flaunt their wealth on themselves while the middle and lower class struggle to hang on to what they have left.

Nein Volts Re:Misleading interpretation (243 comments)

Exactly! Just say it's natural phenomenon! Just like coal burning plants have nothing to do with aerosolized thorium and mercury levels in our waters.

Trust an Insurance Company's "Drive-Cam?"

Nein Volts Re:Ride a bicycle (480 comments)

In America they are worse. Drivers don't have a problem driving on your side, going though red lights, and cutting in front of you when ever they wish. Bicyclists help by going though stop signs, blocking your way to pass them, and getting into traffic in front of you, making you lock up your brakes to avoid the. I welcome cams! Maybe we will once again be honest, courteous drivers! People act like jerks behind the wheel!

Nein Volts Re:Great idea! (155 comments)
