Ask Slashdot: Choosing a Web Language That's Long-Lived, and Not Too Buzzy?

Nexion Re:VPS costs several times more (536 comments)

But now you have to maintain it.

No, I mean competently.

Once upon a time I maintained servers. PHP updates due to the combination of "upgrades" and exploits make me VERY happy to no longer be administrating machines. Seriously... it was like it PHP was attempting to be the third banjo in the dueling banjos of fail known as Java and Flash. Bringing something like the bane Java and Flash are into a server context, as opposed to client, is something I would rather avoid. Sure, "It's totally mature now!", just like it was when I was a server admin.

AT&T Hacker 'weev' Demands One Bitcoin For Each Hour He Spent In Jail

Nexion Re:Um... McVeigh a hero? You lost me pal (449 comments)

Strangely absent from that list are Mc Veigh's actual targets. They took the day off because there was a possibility that an attack would occur against their agency knowing, full well, children were in the line of fire. Mc Veigh, IMHO, was evil. However if he was evil what does that make those agents?

ESA's Cryosat Mission Sees Antarctic Ice Losses Double

Nexion Re:0.43 mm per year, eh? (162 comments)

Additionally a liquid that is warmer is also more easily evaporated. Ultimately condenses to find itself in ground water, snow packs and back on a glacier. Isn't it funny how "climate science" never seems to account for all but a few factors? Never mind all that... the sky is falling!

ESA's Cryosat Mission Sees Antarctic Ice Losses Double

Nexion Re:0.43 mm per year, eh? (162 comments)

Yes! Vindication for all those who lost their beach front property a few hundred years ago!!! Only a few hundred more years and we can rouse them from their graves to celebrate their victory in reclaiming their property value!!!!!

I would just like to say thank you to every gas guzzling SUV, filthy coal burning plant and all those wonderful climate conjecturists out there who are keeping the dreams of those long dead property owners alive! You're the best! I'm glad the US government spends my tax dollars on your paid propaganda to bolster their attempt to fleece America with a carbon credit exchange!

It... it give my ancestors hope.

Hulu Blocks VPN Users

Nexion Orly? (259 comments)

I have netflix currently and was pondering looking at other providers. I guess Hulu is off the list of prospects as I'm not sure they will work with my current VPN provider.

Can You Buy a License To Speed In California?

Nexion Re:PORAC (325 comments)

More like you get a buffer of 5 - 7 mph by default. Purchasing either the PORAC sticker or this plate border broadens this buffer to a degree that depends on the officer. Doing 80 in a 25 as you blow by a school bus dropping off kids will likely get you arrested no matter to what special interest organization you give a donation.

If you did something like that you would deserve it too.

Can You Buy a License To Speed In California?

Nexion PORAC (325 comments)

You also might want to donate yearly to PORAC. They have this nice little sticker they send you that has had truly amazing results for me in the past. I think my favorite was when a CHP officer rolls up next to me, gets on his PA and says "The speed laws are for everyone." Not that it always got me out of tickets. Sometimes I would get a ticket for the posted speed limit plus five mph and a plus sign next to it. You just go ahead and pay that by writing in a plea of "Guilty/Traffic School".

Then I would do online traffic school where all you really end up doing is taking the standard written drivers test again. I think they closed that hole. I once did traffic school three times in one year. I laughed because right after that my insurance company wrote me a letter telling me that I was entitled to a "good driver's discount".

I'm not really extremely wealthy or anything, but I think I may just get one of these bronze hookups for my RX8. :)

Never drive like a complete maniac however. Police are not tolerant of reckless no matter how much money you throw at their orgs.

Feinstein and Rogers: No Clemency For Snowden

Nexion Re:clemency? (504 comments)

Don't you love a traitor pointing the finger and yelling "traitor!". Feinstein needs her own tribunal. I wish that wrinkled old bag would do California a favor and retire already. From the ravages of nature clearly seen upon her face one wonders why she is still here, and if somehow she is actually among the undead. Whatever witchcraft not only sustains her rotting corpse, but somehow manages to get her reelected time and time again is beyond my comprehension.

2013 U.S. Wireless Network Tests: AT&T Fastest, Verizon Most Reliable

Nexion Suck with AT&T apathy. (131 comments)

Not when AT&T is throttling me. Seriously, they are luck I'm too lazy to change providers and they'll cut a month's bill when they irritate the shit out of me to make up for it so I stay on their network. Thank god I live in the city now, living on the edge to the sticks or in the sticks sux. AT&T had zero coverage in BFE.

US Mining Data Directly From 9 Silicon Valley Companies

Nexion Re:land of the free... (404 comments)

Problem is, they aren't going after foreigners anymore. They've humped that corpse dry. The new excuse for your tattered civil liberties comes from farming some home grown "terrorists". So they are looking at YOU!

NHTSA and DOT Want Your Car To Be Able To Disable Your Cellphone Functions

Nexion LOL (405 comments)

Yet police have a computer running a plate scanner (and god knows what else) and a radio they use in motion. On top of this they feel free to use their cellphones because they've had intense training to make doing so safe! No really, believe it!

Nah, you can keep your filthy NWO hands off my fucking property. Our servants who think like that will hopefully be lined up on a wall someday post tribunal judgement. Sick of this damn nanny state crap on top of the police state.

SCOTUS Says DNA Collection Permissible After Arrest

Nexion Wow... yeah, I don't get on here much as... (643 comments)

the news outside the geek sphere seems more important these days. If you hadn't noticed our country is going to hell in a hand basket RAPIDLY. Tearing itself apart as it seems the majority mindset of densely populated areas attempts to overreach likely to end in an armed conflict where no one wins. It will likely all die down replaced by defacto anarchy after the monetary system collapses in the not so distant future. Then a group that has been preparing for just this event will make use of left over resources to clean up the millions dead due to starvation, and likely deliver aid in densely armored delivery vehicles rocking no shortage of ammo. They will of course rebuild without that annoying constitution thing that allows the slaves to get all uppity about their "rights". Of course the whole world will go to crap as the international monetary system is based on worthless paper with little gold to back it up. Some will recover better then others. Me? I'll do alright. Always kept a few things handy if something like this ever happened. The body armor specifically capable of taking many 9mm SMG hits is new tho. :P

There is humor in it if you look. Remember all those people who pointed out all the bad stuff Bush had done? I love poking barbs of fact at them and watch them squirm defending Obama. Typically either implying racism, religious fervor or that I'm a "tea bagger". I love to then point out that my love of democracy, liberty and love for our republic against their fanatical fascism is something my fiance from El Salvador and I will speak of and laugh about later at dinner. A dinner we wont pray before eating as we are agnostic. Cheers.

WA State Bill Would Allow Bosses To Seek Facebook Passwords

Nexion Ok, why is the US going to shit so rapidly? (316 comments)

A slow decline was always in motion, but all of a sudden we re-elect Obama, Sandy Hook hits, the gun grabbers look to further infringe, the CIA, NSA and DHS all have an anal probe up my butt tracking EVERYTHING and one state seems to think it can establish a state religion!

W T F!

It is like we need to go all nanny on the nanny state types and deliver some spankings to all the politicians and put them in timeout until they can stop acting like, as Dianne Feinstien accused someone of treating her, like a bunch of damn 6 YEAR OLDS!

I mean what? Is the union collapsing now? Are we to all just move on as our own independent states? Cause if we are I'm getting the hell outta Commiefornia for sure.

CSID Conducts Study of Consumer Password Habits

Nexion Nexion writes  |  about 2 years ago

Nexion (1064) writes "CSID, the global leader in identity protection and fraud detection technologies and solutions, yesterday unveiled the initial results from the company’s survey of consumer password habits. In a world where security breaches make the headlines seemingly every day, CSID found that consumers are still careless about password creation, management and security, yet still believe they are safe, an alarming disconnect that can leave many consumers and businesses open to a data or security breach.

The CSID password survey uncovered that two-thirds (61 percent) of consumers reuse the same password for multiple sites. When a consumer reuses a password and login combination across multiple sites and one site is hacked, it leaves the other sites and the businesses behind them vulnerable to breach as well."
