"Slacker DBs" vs. Old-Guard DBs

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:moral of the story (267 comments)

No, I just found it amusing how you berate "high-level languages" and then go on about using C as if it isn't a high-level language.

HP's Free Adobe Flash Vulnerability Scanner

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:Wonder when they will release ... (82 comments)

If/when they do I will agree HP's intentions are bona fide.

What evil, ulterior motive could there be for HP to write a tool so that Flash developers don't expose themselves or their users to security risks?

"Slacker DBs" vs. Old-Guard DBs

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:moral of the story (267 comments)

I view these new "ideas" on data storage and retrieval as a dumbing down of DBs the way higher level languages have dumbed down programming.

Yeah, seriously. All you noobs who don't write in machine code should get the fuck off my lawn.

Toward the Open Company

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:Who gets the scut work? (272 comments)

Who will do the unpleasant jobs in the business, say, cleaning the bathroom or cold calling or arranging financing, and how will they be compensated, by the same rating system?

Well, none of those are an issue in the company as it is now, and I don't expect it to become so in the future (the benefits of running a virtual company with low overheads). But obviously there are some activities that are less attractive than others.

I expect that there will be some participants who will identify enough with the company that they are willing to do those tasks when they show up (I know I will feel that way), especially if their income increases when the company is succesfull.

Italicized part is from the owner.

The 100 Degree Data Center

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:Were nerds here... use the f'ing metric system (472 comments)

Is 20 Celsius twice as hot as 10 Celsius? No. Twenty Kelvin, though, is twice as hot as ten.

This is just flat out false. The scale was purposefully defined so that a 1 degree change in Kelvin is the same magnitude as 1 degree change in Celcius. That is why there is still a 100 degree difference between the freezing point of water (273K) and it's boiling point (373K). All in all, this is some mega fail.

It's Not the 15th Birthday of Linux

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:Ummm yes... (261 comments)

Which means the programmer doesn't have any confidence in his/her product to declare it finished.

The person said "minimally feature complete" not "finished". They aren't the same.

So why would I want to use it?

Because it works?

It's Not the 15th Birthday of Linux

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:Ummm yes... (261 comments)

So, if I search for a password manager tool and find one that's at version 0.35d, I'm wondering: "what is missing from this software that would actually make it a password manager?" Maybe there is no encryption of the datafiles? Maybe the developer still wants to include a print report function but hasn't had time yet? Maybe there is a occasional corruption bug that messes up the datafiles 1 time out of 1000000 saves?

Or maybe nothing is missing at all.

Study Finds the Pious Fight Death Hardest

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:Or they're terrified (921 comments)

Wow, what an insightful post. I'm sure no one in the last 2000 years knew that a religion that has a Jew as it's founder has roots in Judaism. Sounds like someone better publish this post haste before someone steals your work and claims the Nobel Prize for themselves.

Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional 2nd Ed

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:I like GIMP (232 comments)

Yes, but if you are trying to use that as some sort of selling point for GIMP to PS users, then you are sadly going to get nothing but yawns.

and you can use the source as you see fit.

Which is useless to probably 99% of the users of either the GIMP or PS.

Internet-Caused Mistrials Are On the Rise

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:Easy solution (414 comments)

The people of the jury don't (or shouldn't) know anything about you, so probably have no "agenda".

Then you apparently have never served on a jury before. Plenty of jury members have their own agendas and many of them believe that their sole job is to convict people. To be honest, I'd take a judge any day.

Internet-Caused Mistrials Are On the Rise

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:Easy solution (414 comments)

I regard a randomly selected pool of 12 citizens more as my peers than I would some appointed judge or lawyer who may have a political agenda to advance.

Because no one in a jury has a political agenda to advance?

Sun In Talks To Be Acquired By IBM

Ninnle Labs, LLC Re:IBM is NOT more pro-Open Source than Sun (526 comments)

I don't think I made myself clear â" sun don't want to license zfs (and various other projects) under the GPL, because it means they lose control over them.

How has Sun lost control of either Java, Glassfish, Netbeans by licensing them under the GPL? You still are apparently not making yourself clear.
