Indie Game Jam Show Collapses Due To Interference From "Pepsi Consultant"

Okonomiyaki Re:wat? (465 comments)

I'm glad I'm not the only one that can't understand this gibberish. I lost 3 karmas on hacker news for posting about how incomprehensible it was. It's also too long, too boring, and I still don't know what a Game Jam is.

Kepler-78b: The Earth-Like Planet That Shouldn't Exist

Okonomiyaki Re:It's a Big Universe (110 comments)

I'm no mathemologist but, if something is 99.99999%, I believe that means we should expect to find 1 instance in 10,000,000 samples. So should we consider it odd if we actually find 1 within the first 1,000 samples? It's not impossible but it's probably something like 99.99% unlikely.

New Drug Mimics the Beneficial Effects of Exercise

Okonomiyaki Space? (492 comments)

Would this be useful for people who need to spend prolonged periods in low-g environments? What about people in comas? It seems like this might have a lot of uses beyond just making lazy people look better. Although, I wholeheartedly endorse that plan too.

Fukushima: What Happened and What Needs To Be Done

Okonomiyaki Re:Not much and nothing? (370 comments)

Of course we are using less here (Japan) already. Lights are off in the office most of the day, train schedules have been cut back to about 80% of normal, etc. Summer is going to be pretty intolerable if we can't use air-con. But just look at the disparity the parent points out. There's no way any reasonable amount of behavioral change is going to make up that difference.

Yes, we should use 'green' power sources as much as possible but it's not going to be enough. For the foreseeable future, we will need to make a choice between nuclear and fossil fuels or a mix of both. To suggest otherwise is not radical, it's just wrong.

Fukushima: What Happened and What Needs To Be Done

Okonomiyaki Re:Not much and nothing? (370 comments)

That's right, here in Japan they measure it in milli-sieverts but, as an American, I don't have a good grasp of the metric system. Can anyone tell me how to convert to feet?

Browser Power Consumption Compared

Okonomiyaki Flash (274 comments)

I'd have liked to see pages that specifically use flash heavily (youtube or some kind of flash-based game) compared here too. I've noticed that Flash in Chrome causes my fan to spin up like crazy. Other browsers, not quite so much.

Why Mac OS X Is Unsuitable For Web Development

Okonomiyaki Re:Bullshit. (831 comments)

No matter how you configure it, there will be some small differences. The only real solution here is to do all development on the production environment directly.

IPad 2 33% Thinner, 2x Faster, iOS 4.3

Okonomiyaki Re:Not bad (1118 comments)

Sure, but you know who I really feel sorry for? All those poor suckers that bought iPhone 4 and who will miss out on all the great features iPhone 5 will probably have whenever it is released. That's why I never buy any version until the final, ultimate one which will never be improved upon and which has all possible features.
