"Mammoth Snow Storm" Underwhelms

NetNed Re:jessh (396 comments)

Yes because northern regions have never dealt large amounts of snow, nor should they get used to having to deal with it. Damage to infrastructure? WTF are you talking about? Parts of this country had more snow then they ever had and I don't recall buildings, bridges, and the likes collapsing. You're the kind of person the buys in to the sensationalistic media worry storm and thinks you need help from every government agency in order to survive. Grow a fucking set of balls man!

Drug Company CEO Blames Drug Industry For Increased Drug Resistance

NetNed WTF? (136 comments)

Isn't it about time for the FDA to require all drugs sold in the US be made in the US?? We are told all the time that companies go over seas to get more competitive, yet the prices for their goods go up and up and up and up. They tell us it's so consumers get a better price that they crave. That is all complete and utter BULLSHIT. It's all to increase profit, lower operating costs, and fuel the people on wall street.

FBI Seeks To Legally Hack You If You're Connected To TOR Or a VPN

NetNed Mantra (382 comments)

It's the same thing we always hear all the time. The lines that are an attempt to fool the general public. It goes "We need "x" because we can't do our job, and if we can't do our job your "(family, kids, wife, money, future, home, the earth)" are all in danger, so do it for them!"

Ask Slashdot: High-Performance Laptop That Doesn't Overheat?

NetNed Workstation?? (325 comments)

Sort of going for a desktop where cooling is not an issue, I think Workstations are the only why to go. They tend to be more bulky, but for a reason. SSD too, as they use less power and run a lot cooler. I buy Dell Workstations for my company and run heavy CAD programs (Catia, UG) on them with rarely any issues. I think, even though you might not need it, a Quadro or Fire level video adapter in it would serve you well also. Off loading as much of that processing from the CPU would make it run cooler.

FBI: North Korean Hackers "Got Sloppy", Leaked IP Addresses

NetNed Re:Countless Comments on Prior Articles & Now (219 comments)

Probably about as impossible as North Korea having the entire network map, certificates, and hardcoded passwords in their script they used. One? Maybe. All three? No a fucking chance.

Schneier Explains How To Protect Yourself From Sony-Style Attacks (You Can't)

NetNed Re:Sony security: strong or weak? (343 comments)

This tells a lot about what was first reported and how the actual claim of it being North Korea was fabricated. Most interesting is the line "Among the more than 11,000 newly-released files are hundreds of employee usernames and passwords as well as RSA SecurID tokens and certificates belonging to Sony". Ahhhh yea I'm going to say North Korea wasn't involved in the least in this......... Former employee(s) seem about a million times more likely.

Schneier Explains How To Protect Yourself From Sony-Style Attacks (You Can't)

NetNed Re:Official Conclusion (343 comments)

Add to it that Sony is NOT an American company, that the scripts used had HARD CODED passwords and network routes in it, plus the amount of people Sony laid off this year. The whole thing is utter bullshit and the FBI latched on to it for some reason, most likely PR or to use it as an excuse to stomp on US citizens rights. I can't believe on so many tech site that have people that have knowledge of networks and security you still have people that believe the whole thing and investigate it very little.


Now we have douche bags like Bruce Schneier and Kevin Mitnick saying that the technology doesn't exist to stop these attacks. The author of Applied Cryptography first main point is that they shouldn't have made racist comments about President Obama or insulted its starsor (what ever the fuck that means)???? WTF???? How is that even part of the story of a so call security expert talking on the attacks? Gee wouldn't the first logical conclusion be that if they used simple encryption on their emails then even if stolen the attackers would have found the email files useless?


I'm sorry, I'm sick of the "experts" insulting our intelligence with stupid comments that are pretty easy to see as nonsensical. The are either paid shills or make comments like those to keep their business revenue flowing.

Linking Drought and Climate Change: Difficult To Do

NetNed Restored some faith (222 comments)

Comments here have restored some faith in slashdot commenters to me slightly. I was always baffled when the so called tech savoy community was "all in" on climate change with all the information that is at their finger tips on the internet and articles like this resulted in trying to shout out people with the claims of "deniers, deniers, deniers!!!"

UN Climate Change Panel: It's Happening, and It's Almost Entirely Man's Fault

NetNed Re:Haters gonna hate (695 comments)

I think half the time it's the "I am not going to admit I was fooled" crowd that has to stick to the lies they have been fed. To admit otherwise means they might be full of shit. You can tell them all the facts and how numbers were manipulated, how temps were hen pecked to show warming, how no warming has happened in 15 years, how the guy Al Gore called his "mentor" on climate change actually admitted that green house gases effects have been massively overstated and how the amount of money spent has been wasteful and would be way better spent elsewhere. You tell them that and the only thing they can come up with is "You are a denier!" like that is a actual valid rebuttal. When you have to change the name of what you believe because the actual name is a action that isn't happening, I think you seriously need to look in to what you believe and the actual facts of the matter. None of the "believers" what to do that because their biggest fears might come true, that they have been duped and are completely wrong.
