Osgeld Re:I think Nintendo Wii was powerglove 2.0 (40 comments)

powerglove was not made by nintendo

"Though it was an officially licensed product, Nintendo was not involved in the design or release of this accessory. Rather, it was designed by Grant Goddard and Samuel Cooper Davis for Abrams/Gentile Entertainment (AGE), made by Mattel in the United States[2] and PAX in Japan."

Engineer Combines Xbox One, PS4 Into Epic 'PlayBox' Laptop

Osgeld noise heat sketchup (78 comments)

ok so the feat is impressive

how does it preform over time, thats one thing no one ever considers

how many GD pcb's can you glue in here

why does every "laptop" design end up looking like the last 20 laptop designs downloaded for sketchup, you got with a company with a fucking CNC LASER do something more creative than a cigar box

-professional engineer that makes millions of units a year with no news story, not a me too hot glue hack that gets 15 min on slashdot

Osgeld way I see it... (189 comments)

the ones who seem to get the most harassment are the ones who have a habit of bringing it on themselves, see this post for proof

Fluxbox 1.3.6 Released

Osgeld I know what it is (63 comments)

but the description of it in this summary is pointless

  "Like most Linux geeks already know, Fluxbox is the long-standing X window manager derived from Blackbox"

lets say I am not a linux geek, I have linux but its ubuntu or min and whatever ships with that is all I know as far as desktops go? what is fluxbox? oh its derived from blackbox, gee fucking thanks for that useful bit of info, so why even have it in there?

but how bout using that money to build public transportation services, like in my city, the busses only service the ghetto and go as far as the Burlington coat factory, then they wonder why someone would take the risk of driving 30 min outside of town to the burbs instead of paying 10 dollars a second in a taxi who is probally drunker than you are
