Ask Slashdot: Where Can You Get a Good 3-Button Mouse Today?

Oligonicella Re:Middle wheel/button seems to work ok, no? (323 comments)

Got nothin' to do with bein' an old timer. My gaming mouse has a clickable scroll wheel and a set of twelve side buttons. It's simply a can't adapt thing.

Eric Schmidt: Our Perception of the Internet Will Fade

Oligonicella Re:Yawn ... (223 comments)

Bad phrasing on your part. There is no incremental cost of enabling IoT on a device. There is replacing said device. I'm past 60. I still have my grandmother's waffle iron and it works fine, cotton wrapped cord and all. Many, many things have lifespans that will make the IoT very difficult to integrate into a current someone's life without great expense and waste and so they simply won't. The "ubiquitous" IoT will be late this century at best.

Gender and Tenure Diversity In GitHub Teams Relate To Higher Productivity

Oligonicella Re:Really? (103 comments)

Do you honestly believe that having a higher commit count indicates anything at all about "playing well with others"? From the article:

We measure team productivity by the number of commits by team developers recorded in either the main repository or any of its forks in a given quarter.

It could just as easily be argued that it indicates sloppy technique or a battle of egos.

Parents Investigated For Neglect For Letting Kids Walk Home Alone

Oligonicella Re:The Dangers of the World (778 comments)

Many working for CPS need to justify their jobs. You get a vindictive neighbor making a false claim call on you and CPS then has control.

Oh, and you're a jackass. But that's somewhat of a given by the accusation/AC combination.

Pope Francis: There Are Limits To Freedom of Expression

Oligonicella Re:Pope Francis - fuck your mother (872 comments)

And in current times, who exactly is the biggest perpetrator of that pushing? When judging this, it's important to remember scale matters. Proselytizing on the street is maybe a one, murdering someone is probably over a couple thousand.
